Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

The most fulfilling part of being a teacher is leaving your students feeling more capable and empowered than they were before. I'm not satisfied if you're not satisfied, so you can trust that I will bring my best to every lesson. I've been teaching piano in San Francisco for three years now (and teaching trumpet for 10+) and have my masters in music composition from San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I have specialized training in piano technique and pedagogy because of teaching at different professional studios throughout the bay area. I integrate movement and games to bring energy into each lesson and create memorable experiences for ages 5+.

I focus on training these aspects:
• Literacy (fluency in being able to read music)
• Skill-Building Mindset and Tools
• Music Theory
• Ear-Training
• Technique
• Music Appreciation
• Improvisation and composition

About Roxanne

I know my students can learn ANYTHING, and it's my job to guide them and inspire them in the most efficient and fun way I can. I have a versatile background as a trumpet playing composer who plays piano as well. I've played in almost every genre at one point or another as a professional trumpet pl

My son has looked forward to trumpet lessons since we began working with Roxanne. We've only experienced instruction via Zoom, yet we all feel he's learned quite a bit and he feels he has become a better trumpet player. As a parent, I appreciate her flexibility and clear communication. I have confidence in her teaching style and the apparent vision she has for this point in my son's musical journey.

Ms. Roxanne is a wonderful teacher with fun and inspiring tricks up her sleeve. She is able to captivate the imagination of young minds and help them achieve a consistent learning experience. I am so impressed by how effective her teaching methods are in keeping young restless minds interested in learning music. Roxanne's lessons are playful which is perfect for kids and adults alike. She creates fun musical games and creates funny stories and characters around musical concepts to help children remember. This is so much more fun than just plain memorizing! She even invents new games for individual children based on their own personal interests; recently she came up with a treasure hunt game in a young boy's backyard to help him learn about rhythm. Her YouTube channel keeps kids excited for the next lesson with creative and kid-friendly videos. She truly is an ingenious music teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to inspire you and your children in the way of music.

Private Piano Teacher

I began classical piano instruction in 1960 and took private lessons for ten years before branching out into all the other styles of music. I have taught, recorded and performed professionally since 1978, and will show you proper hand and finger technique, music theory, how to read notation and chord charts/symbols, and equally as important teach you how to play by ear. I teach all ages, all styles and all levels of piano, and will teach you how to have fun with it all along the way!

Is it hard to learn a musical instrument? That’s usually the first question
people ask. My answer? Not at all! I teach music in three
easy steps: Speak, Read, Write. "Speaking" music simply means learning to
listen and play your instrument. Reading and Writing are what allow you to
pick up your favorite piece of music and learn it on your own, just like
reading a book. Whether you want to play in a concert hall or in your living
room, I will give you the knowledge and technique to help you make
music a part of your life.

Kathryn has really done a great job teaching the basics of singing to our almost 7 year old daughter. She is the best singing teacher ever and has helped our daughter learn several new songs in a short time. She is very easy going and adapts her style to her students.

I am an experienced teacher of all ages and am very passionate about music and the arts. My teaching career began in 2007. My goal for each student is to ignite a lifelong appreciation, love, and understanding of music. I cater my teaching method to the individual student, seek to create meaningful experiences and work to make them feel happy and fulfilled.
My background in early childhood education coupled with my current work as an adult trainer for teachers and administrators has given me the experience to work effectively with all ages and abilities. I look forward to working with you while you achieve your musical goals!

"Charlie is the best piano teacher I have worked with. In just two months of taking lessons with him, I have learned myriads of info about music, theory, jazz, blues, and the classics. Being under his tutelage is truly an honor and he is patient with me even when I don't practice (Although I must say he's a real stickler for that). I would recommend anyone to him with a desire for music whether you are 5 or 55."

"I was hesitant to start piano lessons but David has been amazing. He's an extremely friendly and patient teacher but the thing that has me rank him so highly is the fact that he always celebrated my successes and never berated for not getting as far as we hoped. For me that was important in an instructor. Also he is totally fine with me bringing in music to learn even if it isn't always the best stuff to learn from.
In short David is the kind of teacher that makes each lesson enjoyable and really helps you learn what's important to you. He has 35 years of experience so you can throw just about anything at him and he'll know what you're talking about. I can't recommend him enough if you are looking for a piano teacher in person."

"David is a bright and multi-talented musician and teacher. He has shared his passion for music with my two daughters, teaching them piano. He is patient and kind. His approach strikes a perfect balance between imparting theory, technique and mechanics and being silly and having fun! Both of my daughters really enjoy him and look forward to their weekly lessons. The two girls are very different in their strengths, interests and personalities. He tailors his lessons to each of them to play to their strengths and tastes beautifully. And he is always positive and encouraging even when they are squirrely. I can't recommend him highly enough."

"Sebastian comes to our home and teaches my 9 year old daughter piano lessons every week. After a bad experience with a music center, she plateaued and was losing interest so we decided to try at home and it has worked out remarkably. She is enjoying learning with Sebastian and no longer views it as boring or a chore. He is so patient with children and has the ability to reach out and help her understand and make it fun. She has become very advanced and has taken huge leaps. We are very blessed to have found such a brilliant young man so passionate about teaching. His personality is very outgoing, polite and always wears a smile. He manages to find a way to guage her interest and keep her motivated. We are very pleased with his services and highly recommend him to anyone who's interested in learning to play. He is a true music professional. Thank you so much for all your help!"

Ask any musician when to start piano lessons, and you're likely to hear something along the lines of "right now!"

Whether you start at 4, 14, or 64, there's plenty to learn and love about playing piano, but some benefits are of greater interest to different age groups.

How to Write Your Own Music: A Beginner’s Guide to Piano Composition 

After hearing a new piece of music, listeners often ask, “How’d you come up with that?”  However, this question often implies, “Why did you write that?”  The "why" is not answered easily. Creativity comes from a mysterious place.  Neuroscientists have shown that creative thinkers tend to be “right-brained”  processors (and synthesizers) of information. However, the impetus to compose includes a myriad of both internal and external factors, and often, these factors are elu …
