I start from scratch with every student, and create a plan based on their goals, experience, and preferred music styles. No two students have the same lesson.

Additionally, because the jazz school I attended gave students very strong instruction in harmony and ear-training, I teach students not just how to read notes, but to understand what they're playing so they can be more creative and versatile. Moreover, I encourage students to feel comfortable making mistakes in a safe environment so they can step outside of their comfort zone.

About Marshal

I've been involved with music for nearly my whole life. I started out with Suzuki violin lessons and then switched to the piano when I was in the 2nd grade and have been performing, studying, composing, and teaching ever since. I graduated from Yale with a Bachelor's in History and afterward e

Private Piano Teacher

The most fulfilling part of being a teacher is leaving your students feeling more capable and empowered than they were before. I'm not satisfied if you're not satisfied, so you can trust that I will bring my best to every lesson. I've been teaching piano in San Francisco for three years now (and teaching trumpet for 10+) and have my masters in music composition from San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I have specialized training in piano technique and pedagogy because of teaching at different professional studios throughout the bay area. I integrate movement and games to bring energy into each lesson and create memorable experiences for ages 5+.

I focus on training these aspects:
• Literacy (fluency in being able to read music)
• Skill-Building Mindset and Tools
• Music Theory
• Ear-Training
• Technique
• Music Appreciation
• Improvisation and composition

About Roxanne

My biggest concern whenever I give a lesson is "am I providing value to this person? Is this what they need? Is there anything else I can do?". Teaching is a huge gift and responsibility. I get to know my student's lives, personalities, interests, goals, and learn from my experiences from them.

The piano is the ultimate first instrument for those who want to learn how to make and understand music! It provides a satisfying goal on its own, while also providing you with knowledge you can transfer to any other musical instrument. As a professional musician with a bachelors degree in music education, and a masters and doctorate in performance, I have the educational background and performance chops to make learning a new instrument both fun and engaging. With over a decade of experience teaching elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as college and adult students; for every lesson you will walk away with clear and achievable goals and the know-how needed to practice these skills for your own musical development.

Dan is a wonderful musician and educator. I learnt so much from him and he has been very very supportive. I am very lucky to have him guide me learning music. I will not recommend anyone else but him for others to take lessons with.

Dan is a wonderful teacher for my kid. My son is now very into music after studying with him. Each lesson he would learn so much and he always look forward to the next one. We are very lucky to have to teacher like him.
Dorian
Dan is a great musician, who helped me grasp all of the musical concepts I struggled with. He is an encouraging teacher who sets realistic expectations and wants to see you succeed. I had taken piano lessons with other teachers who didn't seem to enjoy teaching, but that is not the case with Dan! Our lessons are so much fun and I learn so much every time!

"Gabrielle has a really fun personality, which only helps to compliment her piano skill. Not only that, but she is very flexible on scheduling, and understands that things can come up from time to time for either the student or the teacher. With this expectation in mind, her lessons really make the most of the 30 minutes allotted, and her skills show as she helps you step through each measure. I've taken piano lessons before, quite some time ago, and Gabrielle was quickly able to adapt the lesson to what I already knew versus what I had to re-learn or learn for the first time. Definitely recommend!"

"Paul is an excellent piano teacher. I came to him having forgotten how to read music after not playing for 10 years. I wanted to bring piano music back into my life. Gradually, over 4 months, I recovered everything I had previously forgotten and have progressed quickly with his patient yet encouraging and inspirational teaching style. Paul has introduced me to a wide range of music, which has pushed my piano playing to improve in all directions and on new levels. It has been a wonderful experience, and I am excited to continue and see where the music takes me."
