I'm a believer that almost anyone can learn to play music well, and guitar is no exception. It's something which seems difficult at first, but has a series of specific steps (like any instrument) which take the mystery out of it, and get you playing in no time! I love seeing students improve on this instrument and seeing how much fun they have once they begin to play songs they love.

Esther is amazing! My daughter enjoys her piano lessons.
Jacey
Mrs. Esther is a really kind, patient, and honest piano teacher. She helped me work through my mistakes and told me what I needed to work on in order to improve. Her way of teaching is effective and it helped me gain more knowledge about piano and the techniques of being a good pianist. She is very caring and understands when I'm in a difficult situation and she always encourages me to keep going. I enjoyed all the experiences I had with Mrs. Esther and the unique personality she had. For the past 9 years, I have learned a lot about music and the hard work that goes into playing the piano. I will never regret having Mrs. Esther as my piano teacher and the adventures I had.
Lawrence
Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

I've taken private drum and piano lessons myself, which has given me a great understanding of all musical areas with a strong focus on rhythm. I've played a lot of different kinds of gigs in a lot of different locations and settings, including Spain and New York. I've been teaching since 2012. When I teach, I try to tailor my lessons to each individual student. If the student is willing to work hard to improve, I'm willing to work just as hard to keep the student improving.

Students will learn their favorite songs with music and by ear. Studio days are available to record the students performing the songs when ready and you get to keep the recordings to showcase your improvement!

Advanced students also welcome. I have challenges for everyone.

We can meet and talk in person before starting lessons to make sure it's a good fit. If you have any questions, feel free to ask :)

If you want to learn how to compose your own original music, I'm the teacher for you! I have experience teaching music—composition, music theory, ear training, flute lessons, and beginner piano—to K-12 and adult students. In our first meeting, we'll discuss your goals and go from there, whether those goals are learning to compose solely for your own enjoyment, or preparing to apply to college or graduate music programs. I'm quite flexible in my teaching style: for students who are at the beginning stages and/or want more structure, I can devise lots of fun exercises and assignments. For more self-guided students, I'm happy to simply look at and discuss what you bring in for each lesson.

A little more about me: I just received my PhD with departmental distinction in music composition and theory from UC Davis. I also have a master's degree in composition from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and a BA in music from Columbia University. My main instrument is flute, though I also ...

"We never thought we would have an International Master as our son's chess teacher.

We have a typical 7 year old. High on energy with zero patience. But Danial knows how to channel that energy into our son's lessons and helps him think strategically, analytically, and patiently. Our son's games have improved dramatically ever since he started with Danial. He has learned so many different startegies and techniques from him, and can easily identify them. Being so young himself, Danial is able to connect with kids at their level and make the lessons fun, yet challenging. Being so disciplined and focused himself, he is able to pass that on to our son. But most of all, he is inspiring. He always tells our son, "I did it, and you can too!". We couldn't have asked for a better teacher, and a role model. I highly recommend him."
