I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and continuing an emphasis on early childhood development. I started with piano 20 years ago (it’s shocking to see how time flies). Along with my students, I am still learning. It’s a non-stop learning however it is such a remarkable experience. I make sure the student gets the learning they deserve as well as meet their music goals. I do provide the necessary materials to get the student started and keep track of their musical progression. Let’s keep in touch!

We had the privilege of having Ms. Angelica as my 10 year old's piano and violin teacher. She was patient, funny and an excellent music teacher. She knew exactly what to do to keep my daughter interested and engaged. My daughter looked forward to every session she had with her.

Private Piano Teacher

Greetings! Alec is the Piano Teacher for Kids in Orange County. Along with tutoring piano, he is also a music composer for film, video-games, and multi-media. With over 15 years of piano-playing experience, and 5 years of teaching, Alec is happy and excited to achieve whatever your child's goals are in playing the piano.

Within the first few lessons, you or your child will be able to:
(1) Understand the Foundations of the Piano
(2) Effectively Read Notes
(3) Recognize Patterns in Music
(4) Use Both Hands Fluidly Within a Song

Alec's foremost philosophy in teaching piano is following the student's goals and dreams, not his own. While curriculum work is certainly vital, it is far more important that his students receive help they need in accomplishing their biggest aspirations in music. Whether your child wants to be a music composer, rock-star, or just playing for their loved ones, Alec can bring them closer to that goal.

Alec's promise to you is to ...

From the first time Alec met my grandson he was understanding, encouraging, extremely patient and knowledgeable. The next lesson assignments were clearly written out with the expectation that time would be allowed for daily practice.

Thank you, Alec
Sarah Jones
I got so much value for my daughter's piano lessons. I was surprised when she played her own songs to me. On top of that, Alec was very on top of things when it came to lesson planning, homework, and attendance. If you are new to piano, I would recommend signing up with Alec.

Whether you love Mozart or just want to jam out to some Billy Joel, I will help you reach your goals! All ages are welcome to my lessons. As a recent graduate and experienced pit (theater) musician, my experience includes many different aspects of music and the piano. My aim is to help guide you in finding your musical voice!

See you at the keyboard!

Elizabeth did a great job making my son feel comfortable and introducing him to the basic concepts of the piano. Unfortunately, he was hesitant and not willing to participate in this lesson. My husband and I look forward to the next lesson and his willingness and enthusiasm to participate with Elizabeth.

"Charles Clarke is hands down the best, Piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from. His is concise and effective in his communication and I am excelling at a steady rate. Now I am even able to figure out chord progressions by listening to recordings all because he has taught me how chords are constructed. I would highly recommend him to anybody seeking a reliable, talented and professional instructor."

"Laurel is an amazing Piano teacher. She was able to connect with my 6 year old daughter right away. She has a calm, kind energy and possesses positive leadership skills. My daughter is flourishing under her teaching much more than she was with her previous piano teacher of almost 2 years. My daughter is a deep thinker and enjoys that Laurel explained and even showed her (by opening the piano) how the keys all connect and work together to make the sound. Laurel is very professional and punctual as well. I highly recommend her!"

"Jeff is a fantastic music teacher.

He currently teaches piano to my 12 year old daughter. Beyond the technical skills, what makes Jeff different than most teachers is his complete customized / personalized approach. In the world of education, a hot topic is how every student is different and the trend towards personalized learning plans. Jeff actually lives this philosophy. During his first meeting, he spent 30 minutes with me (the parent and person who is paying) understanding my desires, and he spent another 30 minutes with my daughter, understanding her goals and motivations. He then developed an approach that keeps my daughter engaged and motivated, no easy task for a 12 year old with ADD/ADHD.

He mixes teaching traditional piano theory with using modern technology (GarageBand) to create music, as well as focusing on he learning songs that she enjoys (pop music.) The curriculum that my daughter is following is 100% tailored to her.... there is no set music book that she is working her way through. Her practice time usually involves her making recordings of new pieces she is trying to create, as well as working on playing songs she likes. He is positive and builds her up during lessons, while also managing to be honest with her when she hasn't lived up to expectations (not so much about her skills, but about her following through on practice time commitments.)

Jeff's personality is great - easy for both parent and daughter to get along. I listen to my daughter during the lesson and she is engaged, which is the #1 goal. From my end, Jeff is priced appropriately for an in-home teacher, he is flexible when scheduling issues arise, and he communicates with me very well (usually texting for simple issues, and phone calls for more in-depth talks.)

Note: if your goal is a straightforward, traditional "skill and drill" teacher - where your child will learn the scales but be bored and hate piano - then Jeff is NOT your teacher. If your goal is to have your child engaged and enjoying the process of learning, and perhaps fall in love with music/piano along the way, and progress at his/her own pace, then you should definitely give Jeff a try!

Jeff is the fifth piano teacher my daughter has had in the past three years and he is by far the best, as measured by my daughter's engagement and enjoyment. We have had a variety of different styles (including skill & drill, rock n' roll, traditional, etc) and we finally found the right fit for my daughter. Last year she had a traditional teacher -- she learned a lot, she progressed a lot, and she hated every minute of it....begging me not to make her continue. This year with Jeff, the process is entirely different, the lessons and practice time is entirely different, the pace is entirely different (not quicker or slower....just different) and the love of music has returned to my daughter!

Will she become a professional piano player? I have no idea. Does she run to the door when Jeff arrives (versus hide in her closet which she did last year)? Yes, she does. For us, that is success and that is directly tied to Jeff being a great teacher.

I highly recommend him."

My 4-year old granddaughter (Anaya) totally enjoyed the first lesson. She couldn't stop talking about it with us on the way home, as well as with her parents, after she got home .
