Private Classical Piano Teacher

A natural teacher at heart, I teach Piano, Visual Arts, and Yoga. I earned my Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Teaching and my California Teaching Credential in the Visual Arts and have been teaching professionally since 2012. I began playing the piano at age seven and advanced to honors recitals of Certificate of Merit through the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC). I have experience teaching ages 4-65 and beginning through early-intermediate levels. Beginners are my specialty and I currently teach 12 piano students a week. I use a variety of materials like flashcards and book series to teach classical, jazz, pop, and sacred styles: Alfred’s Basic Piano Library, Bastien Basics, Bastien & Bastien, Faber’s Piano Adventures, FunTime Faber & Faber, Piano for the Older Beginner, Alfred Masterworks, and Hal Leonard Songs from Disney. Students have the options of borrowing my used books or purchasing new books.

My new students love the patience and personalization that I bring ...

I love teaching and providing the student with different types of styles and genres to learn from. If you wanted to learn classical then we would focus on that and learn in the most efficient pedagogical approaches there are, but if you wanted to learn jazz or rock then we would instead focus on the creative and improvisational side of learning. What a student needs is also based on who they are and what music they love, and with a good combination of fundamental principles and musical exploration the student is nurtured to be the musician they want to be.

Ruthy has been a great instructor. I started with her knowing very little about the piano. I have been working with her once a week and am seeing great improvement. I am learning notes, chords, and understand music. She makes learning fun and helps you to achieve playing songs that you really like and enjoy.

I have nearly a decade of experience teaching piano students of all ages, and particularly enjoy working with beginners! I work with students on developing the musical fundamentals that will let them explore any genre they're interested in, whether they dream of playing Beethoven sonatas, keys in a rock band, or hymns at their church.

Note: Prices listed for this subject area are for in-studio and in-home lessons, regardless of genre. I am offering reduced online rates during the Covid-19 pandemic. These are available under "Piano" lessons.

""I am very fortunate to have found Maria. I went through 3 other instructors, all claiming to have their own patented method of teaching piano, but all of them left me frustrated and without clear direction. Maria understands the necessary path. She enlightens and inspires me every week with the timeless beauty of piano. With her by my side, I believe I can realize my dream.""

"Although it has been only 2 months since I started my lessons with Mrs. Heather Lanza, I have witnessed a great difference in my sight reading and my piano playing. She has chosen the textbooks that I just needed, and I think they are of high end rank. In addition, Mrs. Lanza, suggested some supplementary books that I just needed; they have been really useful.

Mrs. Lanza inculcates independence in her students by letting them choose some of their material while assigning them tasks (that will later turn out to be just what they needed).

On a personal level, she is a lady of nice, considerate, understanding and helpful character.

I'm a firm self-study learner; however, I think a good teacher can save the learner a lot of time and effort, and that is what Mrs. Lanza could do well."

"Andrzej is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable. I was taking piano lessons at a music school, and never was I ever taught the fundamentals or theory. When I started taking lessons with him, things started clicking and making sense. He makes sure you know your fundamentals and will take time to go over all the questions you have. Highly recommended"
