I want my piano students to learn to love music but also to have a good grasp of theory and technique because that transfers to any and all instruments and styles of music they wish to pursue. Generally the beginning of the lesson is spent on strength and technique building exercises. We also study scales and music theory and then spend time working through songs to reinforce the concepts presented and help the student progress in their abilities. I train my students to be able to read the music rather than just play by ear so they can pick up and play any piece of music they choose. For beginning piano students the types of songs are more basic since they are designed to reinforce music knowledge and note reading abilities. More advanced students are able to play from different styles including classical and modern.

I'm always impressed with how Jessica is patient with our 7 year old daughter and still is able to draw her out and motivate her when she is tired from school. Jessica always finds creative ways to be inspirational. Both my husband and I drive 15 miles to be able to have Jessica teach our little girl. We think she is worth it. She has been flexible and always tried her best to work within our schedule and has even driven out to our house to cover a lesson when things didn't work out in the schedule.

I'm a complete beginner on the piano, and within a matter of a few lessons Buzz had me playing 3 or 4 songs. Not only that, but i learned much about how songs are put together, which made me listen to music differently and deepened my enjoyment of what I was listening to.
True to his word, Buzz asked me what I wanted out the lessons and then delivered."

Located just a few minutes from Ocean Beach, The Shout House is a rock ‘n roll dueling piano bar, featuring a number of professional piano players—some of which have played for national touring acts.
