Teaching Piano in Elk Grove: The Gift of Music

By Kecia T.-Elk Grove Piano Teacher

Not everyone plays a musical instrument. Yet, many of us wish we did. It’s not until we become adults that we regret not learning an instrument or being able to play music. So when you make the decision as a parent to offer music lessons to your child, remember that you are giving them a gift that will last a lifetime.

I am the mother of two boys and I teach piano in Elk Grove, CA. I specialize in teaching beginning piano and the majority of my students are children, ages 6-10. I love working with kids in a variety of after school programs. With my patience and enthusiasm, I know just how to guide your child on their musical journey, and encourage them to learn. As a piano teacher, being able to teach your child is a wonderful gift to me.

When I was a young piano student I wasn’t properly trained. As a result, I had to relearn some basic music concepts. When I began teaching piano, I vowed that I would teach the proper techniques and concepts correctly to all my students, so they would not have to go through what I went through. This is truly where my passion thrives! Our children give us many gifts throughout their childhood. The gift of music is a gift that keeps on giving. It’s a great time to learn piano in Elk Grove, CA!

I have been teaching children and adults for the past 15 years. I have worked in public schools as a band instructor, choir director, orchestra director and general music teacher. My private
piano students have enjoyed playing from a wide variety of musical
styles from classical to modern.

About Steve
Steve began his musical journey on the piano as a child, later moving on to explore
clarinet and trumpet in band before discovering the French horn in high school.
Though he earned his bachelor of music in horn performance at CSU, Sacramento, he never gave
up the piano, teaching students and accompanying choirs throughout college, and
earning scholarships for both instruments.

Steve has played for a number of musical groups, from orchestras, chamber
groups and community bands to being a pit musician in musical theater and
opera. This year, he will be joining the William Jessup University Wind
Ensemble and playing horn in that group. For the last several years, Steve has
directed the orchestra at his church, and has also arranged hymns and worship music
for church orchestras and smaller ensembles.

Besides teaching piano and hor
n, Steve's musical interests include music theory, arranging, composition, piano ensemble playing and ethnomusicology.

Piano is probably the best instrument to start music on, and is a great supplement to any instrument. A knowledge of piano, and an ability to play and understand it, will make the entire process of music much easier. It's also a lot of fun to play!

About Colin
I'm a life-long musician with a passion for the art and a love of teaching it. In 2012, I graduated from Sacramento State with a Bachelors in Music. Through my schooling and personal study, I have become a well-rounded musician able to teach many instruments effectively. Making music with others at a high level, teaching, and having the opportunity to perform professionally around the Sacramento area has been a great experience. I look forward to continuing that journey, growing as a person and musician, and being a positive role-model for others!

I've been playing trumpet nearly my entire life, and studied it in college. However, I am a multi-instrumentalist and currently teach trumpet, guitar, piano, and trombone. I specialize in classical style, but can also teach jazz theory, correct swing style, articulation, etc. I have
studied with multiple music professors and have learned their most effective teaching methods. I have taken music theory classes that allow me to explain theory in a simplified manner to students. I have been playing guitar since high school and have taken many piano classes while in school, where proficiency is necessary in order to advance in the major. In my free time, I even play drums and multiple other instruments and listen to music constantly. Music is very much my life. This allows me the versatility to teach a variety of instruments and mold myself and my students into well-rounded musicians.

I have had experience with quite a few teachers over the years, and none have quite felt the same as Colin. He is knowledgeable, educated and personally very talented at his instruments, and he prepares well for his lessons and always thinks of creative/well planned approaches for each student's individual needs. He seems to invest in each studio member on a personal level, which is sadly not terribly common. The fact that he is also a working professional performing and making music out in the community makes him an even more rare asset to have. I would highly recommend him for your or your child's instructional needs.

I have been teaching the piano lessons for 30 years. Curve fingers, Pre-level to 10 levels(Keith Snell piano books), All the Techniques (Major,minor scales,Music Structures), Etudes etc.....

About Esther
I'm Esther, a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself piano and singing in a choir at the age of 9. I moved to the U.S. in 1992 and studied music for 10 years receiving my B.M. & M.M in music at California State University of Sacramento. I studied and trained with Claudia Kitka & Jackie Victorino for voice and Kirsten Smith, Joan McDe, & Angel Mamn for piano. I have performed many solo concerts in the U.S. as well as South Korea.

I find a student's strengths and weaknesses using various ways to encourage each student. I am very patient, kind, flexible, and enthusiastic and I love working with children as much as adults. I strongly support basic skills: sight-reading, pitch and tone.

I have 30 years experience teaching kids and adults private piano and 14 yrs voice coaching (early period to contemporary). I sp
eak fluent Korean and English.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objectives: to help students powerfully communicate through the essence of music and aid the development of children and adults by finding their strengths and weaknesses and to develop their skills and show their musical talents. I emphasize basic skills, good sight-reading, and Solfege skills (Do-Re-Me...etc), vocal technique, vocal performance, and Alexandria technique. Students participate in their own recital and show their musical talents.

Lessons are held at either your home, or mine using composers from various time periods that speaks to the individual student.
Also,I do prefer to work a weekly student.
A beginner lesson may be 10-15 min. for warm-ups and scales, 10-15 min. theory and 10 min. playtime. In three to six months the student will be able to read sheet music and should be able to perform simple songs.

An intermediate lesson is longer, 45-50 min., with more focus on music from a specific chosen time-period. A specialty is preparation for voice and piano auditions for entering college.

I enjoy teaching children from age 5 up to adults. I also can teach beginner guitar.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, electronic keyboard, guitar.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar

*** Specialties ***
I teach the basic skills very strongly, and also encourage students and, challenge them, as well.
I also have new techniques for teaching voice and piano.
I do prefer to teach a weekly lesson.

I will definitely keep taking lessons with Esther until I move to a different state. Highly recommend her. She was very patient. Out first lesson took place at her place. I honestly never sang in front of people, though I love to rap with my friends in karaoke. I already gained so much confidence and see the difference. Cannot wait till the next lesson and learn new skills and become a better vocalist. Thank you Esther.

Piano is one of the best instruments to learn for singers or beginning musicians. Our lessons will be fun and exciting, and also focused and productive. You'll be playing in no time!

About Melissa
I have been studying and performing music for the majority of my life, starting with piano in the third grade. I started singing in choirs in high school and continued studying voice throughout college. I have a classical background and moved to jazz voice as an undergraduate at California State University of Sacramento. I recently completed my Masters Degree in Vocal Performance in 2015!

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching music gives me joy! I create a positive and encouraging environment for students to gain confidence in their performance abilities. Every student is different and I approach each lesson accordingly in order to accommodate each student's needs and expectations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, microphone, sound system, music stand, sitting area for parent(s) when needed. Students are expected to purchase their own b
ooks which are required for piano lessons. I can supply photo copies for the first couple of lessons until books are delivered.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a metronome for lessons, but each student should acquire their own for practicing purposes. Students should provide a stereo, preferably with an iPod adapter, to listen to musical examples, and a piano for voice or their own instrument for instrumental lessons. I can provide an extra ukulele for lessons, but students should have their own for practicing purposes.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz voice, teaching students jazz theory and improvisation as well as stylistic techniques.

I already have a few things to think about and practice at home, she seems very insightful so far and it's pretty cool that she can pick out by ear what note your on and what not. I just wish I could afford the longer sessions.

I have taught couple students past ten years ago and some of them have become an excellent piano player even started teaching others.

I usually do a consultation with my new students to see where they are at and select appropriate lesson books for them. One thing I do require from all of my piano students is that they need to practice everyday, even if it's just an hour. Practice makes perfect!

About Allen
I started learning piano when I was five and played classical for six years. I like to play by ear and also took a year lesson in improvisation.

I graduated from San Jose State University with B.A. in Music Composition in 2002 and I've been composing ever since I was sixteen. I wrote a lot of Christian Music both in English and Chinese, Pop, Commercial, and Soundtrack.

I teach according to each student's need and goal. I like to do a consultation with the student and parents on our first lesson.

If you're interested in getting to know more about the piano lesson, feel free to message me!

God bless & keep learning~

I provide students with the Bastien Piano Basics method and the Alfred Piano method. I believe that this is the best way for a beginning student to learn. I also teach students (both beginning and intermediate) the art of piano technique, and how to incorporate it in their piano practice.

About Arend
Arend was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. He began playing piano at 7. His teacher was Dr. Beverly Wesner-Hoehn, PhD, a classical Harpist and Pianist who performs throughout California. During his years at school, he performed in musical productions and was twice awarded the All Star Piano Student Award in 2004 and 2011.

In 2012, while attending American River College in Sacramento, CA, Arend auditioned and was chosen to be in the Piano Program for music major students. He studied Music Theory with Dr. Joseph Gilman. His piano instructor was Professor Tatiana Scott, a well-known professor and teacher from Russia who taught him the studies of ear training and melodic dictation. During his years at American River College, he auditioned and was chosen three times to perform with ARC Orchestra for the Concerto-Aria Competition. At ARC
he earned his A.A. degree in Music and will continue on with his Music education at California State University of Sacramento earning his Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance. He currently studies with American pianist Richard Cionco, one of the piano professors at CSUS.

I have been teaching piano for over 30 years. For beginning student's, I use the "Alfred's Basic Piano Series". This will teach them playing the piano immediately. I will be teaching music theory, notation, technique, and different chords progressions. This will be introduce as my student's progress in their studies. For Intermediate and advance student's they usually want to focus on a certain type of music. For example, they might want to learn jazz techniques, classical, country, or latin jazz techniques. I will always tailor and cater to my student's ability to progress, not forgetting to use a little bit of humor so that they will have a rewarding career in music.

About Art
To my future student's, I look forward of meeting you and start teaching you how to use 10 fingers to play 88 keys on the piano. My teaching experience dates back to my college day's, as i begun teaching private lessons part time many years ago, and have been consistently teaching students the last 10 years in their homes. I have performed with many groups throughout my musical career and have had a rewarding career playing the piano. I was station overseas in Stuttgart, West Germany and had the honor of assisting 15 teachers to start a music program which was very successful. I retired with 22 years of service with the 159th National Guard Army Band with a honorable discharge. One of my favorite performances was when we play at the Palladium Hollywood in Los Angeles. My teaching style is very simple. Be creative and always involved humo
r. The student will know instantly if the instructor is eager to teach as the student is also eager to learn. For example, i would use a lot of metaphors and analogies to explain a musical concept. I would always tailor lessons to their level of skill. Nothing is more rewarding than to see one of my students at a recital and i hear their parents tell their friends,"that's my son, he learned from the best". I personally believe "teaching music" can not be taught in a classroom. One must have a love of teaching and a love of teaching that particular instrument to my students. For my beginning students, i use the the "Alfred's basic music series". For my intermediate to advance students, i start at their level of piano playing. Focusing on the type of music they want to learn.
