About April C.

Rocklin, CA

View Full Profile

I am a classical trained pianist and I have been teaching music since my 2nd year of college in the Boston Conservatory. Combining music appreciation/basic theory with piano playing is the signature of my piano lessons! I believe that piano lessons do not mean only practicing but more importantly, you really need to listen and know and enjoy the music. Therefore besides regular piano learning, students will be introduced well-known music repertoire with famous composers' stories(usually 5-10 minutes each lesson), which I think is the key to fall in love with music!

My teaching subjects include Piano Playing, Music Theory, Ear Training(via games!), Music Appreciation for beginners and Harmony and Counterpoint, Form Analysis and Music History for advanced students.

About April
April Chung is a young Taiwanese pianist who has performed in many countries. She began to play the piano at the age of four and gave her first performance at the age of seven. Her recent performances include solo recitals in Boston and Los Angeles, piano concertos at the Perugia Festival in Italy, as well as chamber concerts in Luxemburg. She has also performed as a soloist in Salzburg, Austria and Taipei, Taiwan.

Besides performing, Ms. Chung enjoys teaching music. Her students include all ages and the subjects range from piano playing to music theory, harmony and counterpoint, ear training, form and analysis, as well as music appreciation.

Ms. Chung holds a Masters of Music degree in Piano Performance from the University of Southern California under the studios of Professor Bernadene Blaha and Professor Daniel Pollack. Ms. Chun
g also holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee under the instruction of Professor YaFei Chuang.

With a very warm and friendly personality, Ms. April always gives positive energy to her students. She is very caring, encouraging and she expects her students to bring out their best to the lessons. Her students love her fun and true music stories, which give them strong motivation to practice.

Please feel free to visit her website for more information about her teaching philosophy:

April is a knowledgable, skilled and kind piano teacher. She is very knowledgable about and helps me with the little details in the songs I play like articulation in Bach and rubato in Chopin. Overall, since I've been taking lessons with her, my technique, interpretation and music theory have all improved greatly. :)))

Very good piano teacher. I had the pleasure of taking piano lessons with April and she has a natural ability to teach. April helped me to make a lot of progress in a very short time! And she is very involved in having the classes always very enjoyable for the student, by adding some cultural/historical references and funny facts about classical composers and music in general.

I've been taking lessons with Ms. April Chung for a couple months. I had not played the piano since high school, and was hoping to pick up the old habit. Lessons with Ms. Chung has been pleasant, efficient, and very informative. I am very impressed (or shall we say surprised?) in how fast my techniques improved over the short period of time. I was able to put together a solid Chopin piece in good shape over a few weeks. I especially admire April's tips for self-practicing, and her balanced focus on both basic skills and musical expressiveness. I highly recommend anyone, with different experience and age, to work with Ms. Chung and learn to enjoy playing the piano.

About Kseniya K.

Andover, MN
View Full Profile

I have a big experience teaching students all levels and ages. My goal is to keep the joy of music making for each and every student, but also to make sure you learn and advance after each lesson. I would happily work with you on the music you want, combining it with the specific piano techniques you need to have in order to play the instrument well.

About Kseniya
I have been teaching violin from young children to beginner adults for 10 years. I also teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.
I believe that the the music potential comes through discipline, self-motivation and passion. As a teacher, my goal is to get to know each of my students and create individually tailored lessons according to my student's needs and goals. I believe that a strong technical foundation is a key in music making - when a student feels comfortable playing the instrument , they find how much they are capable of doing and what a great joy is this music making process. This is why I put a strong emphasis on the technical aspects. They say "practice makes perfect", but in reality only perfect practice makes your playing perfect, in other words, my goal as a teacher, is to give my students all the right tools to
succeed, when after each lesson you feel that you improved your playing and gained new skills, even if its a small one.
Lessons are taught using a Traditional method refer to students learning to read music. Whereas the Suzuki Method students learn by ear which I (might) use for very young students age 3-5. For older students I use certain aspects of the Suzuki method but definitely incorporate basic theory and note reading as early as possible.
All students will have the opportunity and are encouraged to perform in recitals.

AVAILABILITY: The calendar here is not up-to-date and still on a summer schedule. I mostly teach M-Th (depending on my schedule Fr and Sat are possible). Lessons are scheduled on an individual basis based on my schedule and student's availability.Please send me a message what days/times you are looking for, and I'll get back to you. Thanks!

Folsom, CA

I teach in my lessons: repertoire (classical, pop, rock, blues, etc), music theory, sight reading, and ear training. Lessons are one hour long Monday through Friday, NOT Saturday and Sunday. Beginners, intermediate, and advanced are welcome. I am willing to do music theory lessons via skype, not piano lessons though.

About Skylar
I am a professional classically trained pianist with a Bachelors degree in music from California State University of Sacramento. I have studied classical piano for 20 years and have been teaching for 10 years. I am also involved with other musical projects, such as playing in rock bands across California or doing session work. I am currently endorsed by Kurzweil Music Systems and Dave Smith Instruments.

I teach piano students of all levels from age 5 and up. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence (that would include technique/exercises), to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on student preference. Some of the musical styles I regularly teach include: Classical, Pop, Rock, Hard Rock, Alternative, and Blues.
Though playing popular music is fun, I find that learning tec
hnique is essential to improve the ability of playing and also learning music theory gives a well rounded experience to all students playing music. I look forward to meeting you and giving you fun-filled and informative lessons!

I love working with kids and have been a part of music education for the past 6 years. I love to bring my energy to my lessons to engage the kids and make music FUN.

About Annette
I am a musician who loves to have fun! Music lessons should never be boring or super strict! I encourage my students to learn while being compassionate and energized.

I currently am a music director at a Catholic church where I sing and play the piano, although my music experience is much more extensive. My primary instrument is the oboe (I have a B.M. degree in oboe performance), but I also play and teach the violin, piano and voice.

As well as music directing and teaching, I am a huge theatre nerd! I love musicals especially and my usual role is director or stage manager. I can offer pre-audition lessons to help you prepare for anything you may have coming up : )

About Gabriel C.

I remember when I started taking piano lessons as a child, I was extremely nervous to meet a new teacher and play for them. I wasn't even the painfully shy type, but something about playing music in front of a professional can be very intimidating. I had this expectation of myself to already be good, and I feared that the teacher would make me feel like I wasn't talented enough or didn't have what it took. Thankfully, I had wonderful music teachers (most of the time!) that would create an atmosphere where I felt comfortable. My lessons with my teacher, Mr. Decker, were a joy every week. Now that I myself am continuing this tradition of music instruction (10+ years of teaching experience), I know how important it is to create an environment in which the student feels at ease, and in the right frame of mind for learning and growth. Although I am very serious about achieving musical goals and making fast progress, I know that music is supposed to be fun and enjoyable. Mr. Decker was ...

About Gabriel
Greetings! My name is Gabriel, and I want to welcome you into the wonderful world of piano playing! I am an experienced teacher you can trust to take you or your child to the highest level. I've been playing piano for over 29 years (since I was three)! Growing up in a musical family, I first studied with my mother, who still teaches to this day in Orlando, FL. I studied at the University of Miami, graduating in 2008 with a Bachelors of Arts in Music. Some of my career highlights are
Performing with the Frost Wind Ensemble in Carnegie Hall in 2006.
Performing regularly with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. They still tour around the world under the direction of Terry Myers.
Performing with The Temptations and The Four Tops (on saxophone, my other professional instrument).
Playing at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter from
2014-2018.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in one word: Listening. I think this is the most important skill for a musician, music teacher, and music student. I listen to the student and find out what music already excites them. Then, through that music that they are already interested in, I teach them the universal fundamentals of music: first RHTYHM, then MELODY, then HARMONY. Practice can be fun when you are learning music that you love! I remember being a student myself, and being bored by many of the pieces I had to learn. Practice was drudgery at times! But, as I got older, I started making my own musical choices on what to study, and then I couldn't take myself away from practice! I look forward to my practice time every day, and I want to show you how to have that same excitement for learning and growth. I tailor my lessons to the needs of the individual student. I am always kind and patient, but I do push you to achieve your full potential! Let's get started!
