Piano lessons are strictly for beginners or for students who have little to no training. The first few lessons are dedicated to learning the proper playing technique and practicing several exercises to increase the hand’s coordination, flexibility, and mobility. Once the proper technique has been established we move on to Suzuki method and a series of Etudes catered to the student’s learning needs.

About Alethia

Growing up I was raised in a home full of music. My father, a graduate of the Conservatorio Nacional Superior de Musica (National conservatory of Superior Music) played piano day and night and from there my love for music blossomed. My first experience with music was at the age of 8 when I began to

She is a great instructor! My 14 yr old daughter is a beginner and she has been wonderful with her. She is professional, warm, and always helpful. I don't know much about the violin, but I never have to remind my daughter to practice the music that she is given.
Emmerson (Emme) N.
Alethia is great. She is working with my 7 yr. old daughter as a beginner in violin. She teaches in a way that is fun, appropriate, and respectful. My daughter has already learned so much and looks forward to her lessons with Alethia each week.

I have experience with all ages from 4 to 65. Each person is different, but age has nothing to do with someone's desire to learn the piano.

About Joan

I started piano lessons when I was about 6 years old. I graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson with a BA in Music Education. After moving to San Diego, I spent the next 20 years or so being a wife and mom and raising 3 kids, one of them a special needs child due to a drowning accident.

Joan is an excellent instructor. My teenage son has learned so much in just three lessons. Joan gives a lot of positive reinforcement and at the same time encourages steady progress. I’m so glad we found Joan.

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'm an experienced teacher, performer, and songwriter/producer. I teach piano and voice to beginning and intermediate students of all ages!

My students learn not only learn to play or sing the songs they're most interested in, they also learn about the music theory behind the songs, so they can flex their own creativity! I also have music industry experience and can teach students about songwriting, live performance, home recording, production, self-promotion, and forming a band.

Christina really listened to what I wanted to get out of the lessons and catered her instruction for that. She was also very encouraging and made me feel good about what I had learned on my own before starting lessons with her.

I have been taking lessons with Christina for some time now and have been extremely impressed with her teaching style. She knows how to break down the music in ways that are understandable, and instills excitement about the learning process. I strongly recommend her as a teacher for any child or adult.

I was particularly interested in better understanding music as a whole, so that I could use this knowledge to pursue interests in other instruments as well as the piano. Andrew was a patient and fun teacher, and he understood my somewhat different desires with respect to the topics I wanted to learn about, and catered his lessons to my interests."

The teacher is nice and patient, My daughter just turned 4 when she first started the lesson. I was afraid she was going to find this difficult and boring.
