Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching piano for more than twenty years, with many of my students participating in international competitions and regularly receiving state honors from the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC). Teaching is truly more than a career for me-- it is a passion that guides my interaction with all of my students, no matter their age and skillset! If in addition to pursuing piano as a hobby, you would like to participate in the MTAC Certificate of Merit examinations and earn credit for your studies, please mention that! I have been preparing students for the CM Exams for many years and my students boast a 100% pass rate (and most of them receiving perfect scores on both the performance and music theory sections). Please reach out with any questions! Can't wait to meet you! :)

I care deeply for all of my students and helping them achieve all of their musical goals and aspirations. My lessons consist of theory, technique, sight reading, ear training, performance, and will be tailored and designed to fit each student's wants and needs. I can come to you in person, or via internet so feel free to shoot me a message and let's get started today!

About Gabriel

From 4th to 12 grade I studied piano under Dr. Anne Karanikolaou. The first band I created was a 4 piece consisting of drums, 3 part vocals, bass, and two keyboardists which was picked up by the surf/skate/snowboard/apparel company "Volcom" and put on their record label. I studied music th

Gabriel has been teaching my son Riser (age 7 now) for over 2 years now. We feel so blessed! My son progressed so quickly. Gabriel is patient, engaging and has a gift for helping kids grow their piano skills week by week. I love that he's also created "recitals" for his students to play for people! We recently switched from in home lessons to doing them through FaceTime, and it's almost like having Gabe in our home with us.
Paris
I’m an adult learner and was overwhelmed with the idea of jumping back into piano lessons after a long stint away and not a lot of foundation to start from. I enlisted the help of Gabriel and found his patience, encouragement and thoughtful teaching style put me right at ease! After a few lessons I was on my way and managed to stumble my way through a big chunk of a complicated song I had been wanting to learn! During this uncertain time in history where we are all self-isolating to protect ourselves and each other, I think there is no better time than to pick up where I left off and start my lessons again. I’ll be resuming online lessons with Gabriel again and encourage you to do the same! You won’t be disappointed. 🙂

Gabriel was amazing. He Taught my two kids and me for many years. I can’t say enough how amazing he is!!!
He is very patient and know how to deal with kids of all ages. He understands how each child is different and customize his lessons plans to their needs. He is truly an amazing teacher

Online Piano Teacher

I'm a product of the piano school of Tobias Matthay at the Royal College of music in London. I studied with two of his proteges, Frank Mannheimer and Denise Lassimone, as well as Trinity College of Music, London. I can teach anyone from preschoolers who can't read music to advanced colleagues.

About John

My job is to get your child crazy about the piano. If you have to nag your child to play, something is wrong. The basics are, of course, important, but until you have gotten the child to accept and love the piano as an object of enjoyment, all that practicing will go nowhere. How do I do it?

John has been teaching my 6 year old daughter for 3 months now and not only has he done a tremendous job gauging her abilities and teaching her but he has made it so much fun she wants to play the piano all the time.
Janet S.
John's biggest strengths are his patience, understanding and seeming endless facility with music. I read music but not fast enough to allow me to play good pieces, so John translates everything into physical movements. This makes it very easy to play interesting music, which makes me want to play more. I think he has shown me how learn, how to refine things so they are satisfying. I highly recommend him as a teacher, for beginners or advanced.
Heather S.
My son is six years old and has been taking piano lessons with John for six months. John is a unique and engaging teacher. His extensive knowledge of music and skill at the keyboard were apparent from the beginning. He can easily demonstrate a multitude of songs and then teach them on the spot. My son is excited to play a "whole song," be it Sponge Bob or Beethoven. John's teach-by-numbers technique appeals to my son's love of numbers and patterns yet he is also quickly learning how to read sheet music. John really is skilled at disguising a lesson on technique or theory as a game. He is goofy while at the same time encouraging and supportive of my son. He keeps it light, fun, and skill appropriate. Since he comes to our home, I also appreciate John's focus on the lesson - he arrives and departs in a timely manner. I highly recommend John as a piano teacher.

My goal as a pedagogue is to create a positive environment in my studio where my students can reach all of the goals that they set out to achieve.  It is important for my students to feel a warm, welcoming atmosphere, where they can make mistakes, take risks, and ask questions.

About Jamie

Jamie is a natural teacher of her craft! Her ability to quickly assess and adapt lessons to my daughters’ personalities and preferences of music, as well as her incredibly positive and encouraging demeanor, has made taking voice lessons a great learning experience for both of them. She is very dedicated to finding ways that work for each student to understand how to use their voice and find their breath, and even given the current circumstances of having lessons via FaceTime because of social distancing, the quality and level of expertise of her lessons have not faltered in the least. We are fans!
Marie
Jamie's approachable and friendly personality is reflected in her teaching style - she is not afraid to have you try various unconventional techniques that turn out to be super effective and fun! In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly - so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared towards developing your voice.
Lena
Jamie is a fantastic voice teacher. She is extremely patient and encouraging with me as a beginner. I started with hardly any experience at all, and my singing has already improved significantly after only 8 weeks of lessons. She helped me with song choice and voice repertoire, but is also open to my suggestions. I can highly recommend her for anyone who has been thinking about voice lessons, but has not had the courage to start, even at an older age. Just give it a try!

Hi there! I am a professional jazz, pop, and folk vocalist, pianist, and songwriter with a bachelor's degree in Jazz Voice from the University of North Texas. I firmly believe that learning more about music should be a fun, nurturing, and open-minded process (this isn't Whiplash, folks). No musician is exactly alike, so I work hard to create custom and unique curriculum for each of my students to ensure that they love the music and skills that they are working on!

My teaching incorporates many elements including healthy vocal technique, songwriting, improvisation, music theory, piano, and Finale music notation software. Whatever you're interested in, let's explore it!

I teach voice and songwriting in jazz, pop, folk, country, and R&B styles. I also teach piano and jazz theory. Contact me if you have any further questions; I'll gladly answer them all! I look forward to making music with you!
