A natural teacher at heart, I teach Piano, Visual Arts, and Yoga. I earned my Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Teaching and my California Teaching Credential in the Visual Arts and have been teaching professionally since 2012. I began playing the piano at age seven and advanced to honors recitals of Certificate of Merit through the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC). I have experience teaching ages 4-65 and beginning through early-intermediate levels. Beginners are my specialty and I currently teach 12 piano students a week. I use a variety of materials like flashcards and book series to teach classical, jazz, pop, and sacred styles: Alfred’s Basic Piano Library, Bastien Basics, Bastien & Bastien, Faber’s Piano Adventures, FunTime Faber & Faber, Piano for the Older Beginner, Alfred Masterworks, and Hal Leonard Songs from Disney. Students have the options of borrowing my used books or purchasing new books.

My new students love the patience and personalization that I bring ...

I have known Joshua for several years and have observed first hand the relationship he has with his students. He cares! Gracias para tu paciencia!
Maureen
Doctor Joshua has been instructing my 2 grandsons in piano at their home for many years. They are both excellent pianists, especially the 14 year old. Doctor Joshua lets them choose modern songs relevant to them and has written music for them to play. He also has recitals for his students and has had them play at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet pre-show. Their confidence has soared. I have been at my son’s home many times when my grandsons are taking their lessons and am very impressed at how Doctor Joshua is with both of them, he is very encouraging.
PEISAN
Joshua is attentive and enjoys teaching children. He is an experienced educator. His students get individualized lessons.

Her quiet way keeps him calm but also pushes him to learn. Most of all, he really enjoys the piano and looks forward to lessons!"

We particularly enjoy the performance classes she holds at her studio (paused during the pandemic), where we regularly get to hear how well all her students play and the students can encourage each other. We definitely highly recommend her!"

"I received classical piano lessons from Dr. Backus for almost two years before college. In those two years, I grew so much in my playing and in my love for music. Dr. Backus has a deep passion for music and her students. In my lessons, Dr. Backus incorporated extensive knowledge about music history, theory and technique. Our goal was to build knowledge and technique so that I could freely create and make a beautiful sound with each piece. After taking lessons from her, I LOVE the piano. Dr. Backus taught me how to express music from my heart, and it was a privilege to learn from her and know her. I would highly recommend her for piano lessons!"

"My 5 years old son takes lessons from Karen M. I have no idea how anyone can be so patient with a child who clearly somedays does not want to learn but she has this ability to kind of go along with whatever nuisance my child has started and then steers him towards the lesson. She breaks up the time into so many small pieces doing/learning different activities that a child will not get bored with what they are learning that day.
I also should mention that she comes up with different ways to undo bad habits that have been picked up and also find and suggests new ways to learn the right way.
I wish we had found Karen earlier."
