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

I have a unique, extensive background in teaching the art of playing the piano in a private studio, preparatory school and university level settings. I teach all levels from beginner to advanced for ages five through adult.
I have a strong program in note reading and rhythm skills, as well as exploring all dynamic levels on the keyboard using interesting and fun repertoire.
More advanced students learn to use their theory skills to analyze their music to gain a better understanding of the composer's intent.
They also learn finesse as well as nuances in piano technique to apply to their pieces of music.
I've taught for over five decades so I have tons of knowledge and experience!

About Beverly

I have taught the art of piano playing since 1975 guiding hundreds of students in learning the skill of becoming an accomplished pianist, implementing keyboard theory, analyzing and improvising music and honing their performing abilities through various performing opportunities. I have studied and

I took piano lessons from Mrs. Talley from age 10 to age 17. Over that lengthy period of time, I came to realize that composing music is my true passion in life, a realization that I absolutely would not have attained without Mrs. Talley's invaluable guidance. To put it into perspective, I am 22 years old and finishing up my bachelor's degree in Music Theory/Composition, with the intention to continue pursuing the subject at the masters and doctoral level. I hope to be a theory/composition professor some day. Not only did Mrs. Talley provide me with excellent instruction for performing at the piano, she also facilitated my creative streak and let me arrange/compose songs for fun. She would even let me perform my compositions at recitals! These facts all point to what I think are Mrs. Talley's greatest qualities as a teacher: her love for music in all its forms, paired with her desire to see her students succeed at whatever aspect of music they do best in. I am truly grateful to her and I could not recommend another teacher any more highly!
Julia
My children have taken piano with Mrs. Talley for 9 years. Mrs. Talley has proven to be a phenomenal teacher who helps her students strive to reach their highest standards. She gives them ample opportunities to perform at recitals, guild and sonata competitions, and multiple other outlets which has helped with confidence building. When Covid halted everything else, Mrs. Talley didn’t skip a beat and followed through with video phone call lessons. There was a year when Mrs. Talley moved away and we had the experience of 2 other piano teachers during her absence. It is hard to find a teacher as dedicated and talented as she.
Shae
My children have taken piano lessons with Mrs. Talley for 4+ years. She is kind, patient, and encouraging. She is an outstanding pianist and teacher. We highly recommend her!

"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!
