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.

Online Piano Teacher

Hello! My name is Alan, I'm a pianist and composer based out of Marco Island, FL with an emphasis in the Jazz idiom. Piano lessons with me are unique in the fact that I integrate into my classes a diverse skill set needed to become not just a great pianist, but also a well rounded musician. My music education (classical theory and performance), as well as 3 years experience working as a jazz pianist, have given me the knowledge and understanding of music necessary to help you achieve your musical ambitions.

In my classes you will learn about harmony (chord structures, tonality), work on technical exercises that develop coordination and dexterity on the piano, learn to read and notate music and study repertoire. I am confident that I can help you progress in your own personal musical journey, whether you are just beginning to play or already have a strong foundation in the fundamentals of music.

About Alan

Hello everyone! My name is Alan, I'm a life long musician who now at the age of 28 composes, performs, and teaches music as a full time profession. My first contact with the piano was at six years old when I began taking lessons from a teacher in my home town. During this time I learned how to r

I’ve been taking lessons with Alan for a while now. He is very knowledgeable about music and ties in playing music to the theory behind it to make it easier to understand. He is very patient and caters it to your level and skill. Alan has also been extremely accommodating with my crazy, ever changing schedule. Great teacher!

My method of teaching focuses on building up strengths and knowledge so that a student can become proficient at learning on their own. I do this by creating a custom curriculum for each individual I teach. This accomplishes two things, keeping you as a student entertained and enthusiastic. I have background in music theory, and have taught for several years to beginners, and intermediate students. This has allowed me to learn to adapt to each individuals learning style so that they progress quickly, and comfortably.

Really good experience learning a new instrument. He really helped accelerate the early stages of playing an unfamiliar instrument so that I could start playing actual songs much quicker.
Rebecca
Austin is awesome! He really has amazed us. Our kids have nothing but progressed since taking lessons and they performed wonderfully at their recital. He is always present, provides feedback, and is just good with the kids. What can I say? We highly recommend him. He is now teaching our kids virtually which has been a seamless transition. Thank you Austin for all that you do!
Jill Williams
Austin makes such a big difference in my son's life. He enjoys learning to play the piano and he enjoys the conversations they have together. Austin is very patient and takes the time to make sure Jayke understands what and why he is learning a piece. Jayke has autism - not that this should make a difference - but it does. Kids with autism have poor focus, lack motivation, struggle alternating tasks, and have poor communication skills. I'm not sure if he would stick with playing if it wasn't for Austin. He never makes Jayke feel discouraged or inadequate when he doesn’t get a song right away. His motivation and kind words keep my son wanted to learn.

"An inspirational and positive teacher

I have known Fawn since I was 6 years old. She came in replacing my other piano teacher who was very mean. I was Fawn her until age 19. She had me playing high level classical concerto pieces with in 4 years, with me being able to read and do them on my own. My family and I adore her. She is a wonderful, compassionate and inspiring person. She not only taught me piano, but songwriting on guitar and piano and gave me voice lessons-I even went into her recording studio and recorded the songs I wrote, that was a lot of fun! She also gave my father voice lessons. We all enjoyed her and considered her part of our family and still do, even though none of us take lessons any more. I have started teaching piano privately while going through college. Fawn taught me how to do that and how to be a good teacher. I admire her very much. She was part of my Bat Mitzvah and one of the people I chose to light a candle. I was thrilled when she was on the Billboard charts with Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey. She works harder than any one I know.

Today, I enjoy piano, voice and songwriting because of this wonderful person. She is so easy to talk to, always positive and is very thorough with music theory, sight reading and playing. She, herself has one of the most heartfelt touches on the piano that I have ever heard. I HIGHLY recommend her as a music coach. You will never regret taking lessons with Fawn."

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!
