Private Piano Teacher

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.

About Anna

*I am currently teaching online through zoom/FaceTime/google duo/Skype and will resume in person lessons mid October. I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a mom. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school

Anna is a delight! She is so knowledgeable and I walk away from every lesson feeling liked I gained so much. I couldn’t be happier that I found her. She truly makes you believe you are capable of being a pianist, and as an adult student that can be difficult to believe. But she does. She’s everything a teacher should be, I highly recommend her!
Christopher O.
Warm, patient, professional teacher. We focused on proper vocal technique for our first lesson. It was fun, and I definitely intend to keep learning with her.

Anna was wonderful to work with. She was very sweet and patient. We loved taking the lessons and will be back.

Loved my first lesson!

Laura has a great sense of humor, which comes in handy when I am not doing as well as I would like. She is a very patient teacher, as well as creative in her teaching strategies. When I was taking lessons with her she was studying music at SDSU and utilized her fresh education in our sessions. Also, her at home studio serves as a relaxing setting, which was just my style.
Augie Monroy M.
I really enjoy going to my lessons. Laura is very patient, with great knowledge and a great personality. I am a 58 years old violin student and I want to learn more about the violin so that I can play at my Church. Her classes are fantastic and I know I will be playing in front of the congregation soon. I highly recommend her style whether you are a child, young adult or older like me. IT IS FUN!!

Patient and encouraging

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.

Hi! I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I got my piano education in Soviet Union. I love teaching, and have a extensive experience (over 20 years) teaching music, piano and singing. I can conduct lessons in English, Russian or Spanish. I teach classical piano, pop music, singing and composition. In piano education, I place great importance on cultivating passion for learning and music in my students, as learning with passion is the key to excellence.

Katya is a wery good teacher
Veronica
Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.

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."

"We arrived to Anna after my son took piano lessons elsewhere with little progress. My son is interested in music, but lacked the confidence to push through skills he found challenging. This has changed under Anna’s direction, and our son is making excellent progress. We find Anna to be extremely knowledgeable and competent, and her passion for piano shows. Anna is patient and gentle, but she will undoubtedly push your child to do their best. She will get to know your child to determine their interests and work with them to achieve their goals. Highly recommended!"

Listen to Live Music with Your Meal

Most people don’t have time to dedicate an evening or a day entirely to music. In Ocean Beach, however, you can kill two birds with one stone by going to a restaurant that showcases live piano music.

While it can be difficult to find places that consistently bring in piano players, you can get inspiration from nearly any live performance. Here are some places you can check out.

Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant

This hotel has a live quartet every Saturday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Or if you’re more into jazz, the hotel’s restaurant hosts a Latin jazz night every Thursday and Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Whether you choose to attend either night, you’re sure to get some inspiration. Who knows you might even pick up a tip or two.

Besides restaurants, there is a wide range of live music venues you can go to catch some live piano or even showcase your new skills. Below are some local live music venues you can visit.

The Shout House

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.

Java Joe’s

Another great place to practice your newly-learned piano skills is Java Joe’s. The coffeehouse and art gallery has open mic nights, happening every Tuesday and Sunday. The venue has hosted some of the most well-known singers and songwriters, including Jason Mraz, Jewel, and Steve Poltz.
