My ukulele mentor was extremely knowledgeable regarding the intricacies of various music formats. She broke down complex details into language that I could understand. She challenged me with next steps and was kind to make me feel accomplished.

I believe music makes an individual happier and assists in intellectual growth. If you just want to learn 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' or pursue a professional career in music, you have to start with something and I would be more than glad to help you start in your new adventure.

Learning piano or any instrument takes patience and is rewarding to see progress. I give the student time to learn and process their songs. I welcome questions and give professional feedback. I think of myself of more of a music coach to provide support through your musical journey.

About Angie

I started playing the piano when I was about 8 years old living in Salt Lake City Utah. My family would be watching TV or doing something else and I would go upstairs and play the piano instead. I practiced until I got to the level to play Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata original composition. I still

My son has sensory processing disorder and delayed fine motor skills. We started piano lessons to help him catch up. The results of Angie's positive, patient and encouraging approach exceeded our expectations. Her lessons not only improved my son's dexterity, but they also helped my son to appreciate, play and compose music. He has even chosen to evolve his percussion skills in band class. I highly recommend her for any family.
Megan
Our daughter really enjoys her lessons with Angie. Angie is very patient and relates well to children. She is encouraging and I really believe that my daughter will continue to learn and improve with Angie as her teacher.

De Marcus R.
Betty is an excellent instructor. She makes learning exciting and practical. With no guitar experience, I've learned basic guitar chords, a blues chord progression, and pentatonic scales, in only 3 weeks. Which set the foundation for me to began learning my first guitar song. Betty is a real musician, and her passion for the craft will inspire you to want to learn and become better. If you want to learn from the best, you want to learn from Betty.

Piano Lessons in Sacramento - A Music Lover's Delight

By Javier A. – Sacramento Piano Teacher

The variety of music one can find in Sacramento is greater than the flavors found at any local ice cream parlor. I went on a city-wide mission to find exciting places where I might enjoy live piano performances and it soon became obvious that there are enough flavors of music to delight anyone's palette!

Across the street from the State Capitol building, the Westminster Church provides "Music at Noon," a free one-hour concert series every Wednesday. You can bring your lunch and enjoy "food" for your soul as well! Classical, pop standards, folk, opera, jazz, and music from around the world are just a few of the flavors professional performers bring to the Sacramento Scene. If you are taking piano lessons in Sacramento, this is an activity you would certainly enjoy.

The Sacramento Jazz Jubilee is the world's largest and greatest traditional jazz festival of its kind, attracting more than 65,000 music lovers to enjoy some 70+ bands from around the world performing throughout Memorial Day Weekend. One of the favorite places for all to enjoy free concerts here in Sacramento is at Cesar Chavez Park, where every summer for 15 weeks, some of the most talented local musicians perform live. The beautiful new Crocker Museum also provides the community with great performances where families can spend some quality time on a Sunday afternoon listening to intimate recitals by classical and jazz pianists.

As a piano teacher and music lover, Sacramento has been a grand place for me to taste and experience an endless variety of musical flavors. I enjoy sharing this love of music with my students who take piano lessons in Sacramento, and I would love to share it with you as well!
