I will be glad to share my knowledge of basic theory and the ability to read music for students who have never played piano. You'll be able to learn to read any piece of music that you like from modern charts to more classical. For those 'self-taught' I will be able to show you a more in depth look at the theory behind the art of instrumentation.

Piano was the instrument I ran to when I was tired of classical guitar in college. As a consequence, I develop a very special relationship with it. I've learned to use it as a vehicle for expressing music in a way that's more free than any instrument that I do. Things I teach on piano usually include...

-Basic technique: scale fingerings, finger mechanics, dynamic posture
-Music Learning: how the piano makes music easier than with any other instrument, and what is the most efficient way to learn music
-Improvisation: how to explore music freely using easy keyboard techniques
-Composition: how to find and discipline your creativity through exploratory piano exercises

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

Jonathan is incredibly skilled, a great teacher, fun, and very patient with our gregarious and somewhat distracted 9-year old boy. He has creative, tailored teaching techniques, will try new things, but also keeps our son motivated and progressing. He responds perfectly and patiently to my son when he veers off task, and gets him back on task. We are absolutely thrilled and couldn't have found a better teacher.
Jackie G.
My son has special needs related to an anoxic brain injury. This can create frustration with simple things like learning a new chord that feels funny or is difficult to move your fingers to. He always checks in with us to see what concerns we have and then, helps us by offering suggestions on how to make something easier or less frustrating to learn. I think Jonathan does a good job of meeting us where we are. Jonathan is patient with both of us. Today, he talked to my son about practicing communicating so we can understand how to help him learn. He talked to me about it being ok to break away from the timing and to hit chords at the same time as my son so the song can come together.
Jackie G.
Jonathan is flexible and easy to work with. My son has some struggles as a result of an anoxic brain injury. Jonathan is very understanding and patient with my son. He has also helped me with advice and suggestions on how to work with my son. We love the spirit of the ukulele and the good vibes it has.

"Ms. Melody was always very patient with me. She learned the way I played and accommodated to help me improve personally. During the two years that she was my piano teacher, my skills greatly improved. Playing the piano became more simple and music often came naturally. She is incredibly skilled and caring towards all her students, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. I was very sad when I found out she was moving out of my state and would no longer be my piano teacher.

Experience Piano Lessons in Irvine!

By Amber C. - Irvine Piano Teacher

My name is Amber C. and I teach piano in Irvine, CA! Our wonderful city has an exceptional school system, low crime, lots of diversity, and cultural attractions. It’s also a wonderful place to learn piano!

If your desire is to take piano lessons in Irvine, there are many benefits! Pianists can improve coordination, comprehension, and discipline no matter what age. By allocating a certain time everyday to play piano, you develop the discipline to stick to a schedule. Practicing hands separate first, then playing hands together will help improve your coordination. Music is a language. Just by learning to read music will aid in your overall comprehension.

The Pacific Symphony performs everything from the greatest orchestral masterworks to music from today’s most distinguished composers. These stellar musicians complete 100 concerts a year, and the solo performances are always an inspiration. Some famous pianists include Joyce Yang from Korea, Conrad Tao, a young 20 year old, and David Fray. Take a look at their site to find upcoming performances: https://www.pacificsymphony.org.

Symphony Irvine is an ensemble of professional-level volunteer musicians based in the city of Irvine. It takes dedication to perfect your art, which means consistent practice develops technical skills and self-expression. Once these skills are perfected, you will have the confidence to pursue a professional career. For more information, go to http://symphonyirvine.org.

I cannot stress the importance of seeing live performances! They can inspire in a way that you cannot get from the radio, TV, or the Internet. Piano students can learn valuable tips from observing and listening to these seasoned performers. Pay attention to watching their technical skills,how they interpret the music, and their professional behavior.

Many Irvine schools offer the opportunity for students to perform in talent shows, musical theatre, choruses and bands. If you are interested in taking on one of these opportunities, your piano instructor is a great resource for you. They will help you choose appropriate material, help you prepare for your audition, and then help you practice your performance!

I always encourage my students to participate in the community because it provides a goal to achieve and also builds self confidence, creativity, and self expression.

Lately, I have started to record some of my students playing piano because it gives them instant feedback on how they look and sound, and gives us a strong starting point. One example is an eight year old student who was preparing to play solo at a recital. Previously, he had only played duets with me on stage so he was experiencing some stage fright about playing alone. I recorded him at home playing his piece, and coached him about his presentation of bowing, adjusting the piano bench if necessary, and taking a moment to collect himself before he started to play. I encouraged him to think about what the music meant to him and to keep playing if he made a mistake. He performed beautifully. Even though he made one mistake, it was hardly noticeable because he kept playing and didn’t get flustered.

Our city is conducive to learning and creativity, so take advantage of what we have to offer by checking out piano lessons in Irvine! Get inspired and become absorbed in the gift of music!
