Private Piano Teacher

I love to teach beginners, intermediate players and advanced players. I am comfortable if you or your child know absolutely nothing about music. We will work with scales and chords at every lesson and progress through music that is appropriate to the students skill level. I like for students to have fun too!

About Claire

I've been teaching piano, cello, voice and theory in Los Angeles for over thirty years, helping students develop their particular interests in music and to encourage them to reach their personal goals. I love the classics and many of my students want to play popular music, contemporary sounds and j

I am 43 years old and was scared to take on such a difficult instrument but I really wanted to learn how to play the beautiful cello. I had my first lesson and am very happy with Claire. She is friendly, accommodating, patient, and explains her lesson in a clear and easy manner (as easy as you can get with the cello). I had a lot of questions and she was very open in answering all of them. Although I am still at the very very beginnings of my journey, I am very excited to continue with the cello lessons, thanks to Claire.
Leslie Mattesich
The first lesson was excellent. I completed my first private cello lesson since playing about 44 years ago. It was wonderful. The teacher is very organized and very nice. I thought maybe the lesson would be a lesson of remembering what I had forgotten from so long ago, but I actually learned new things. I'm excited to attend the next lesson.
Mike H.
Claire works at your pace, but expects you to progress at a steady rate. It's the perfect balance between understanding the student's ability and reasonable expectations for advancement.

I’ve once heard that a Piano is a musicians work desk and I couldn’t agree more. Piano is a beautiful instrument and not only is it great use for composition, but an even better accompaniment while singing. If you’re interested in either, I would enjoy helping you on you’re journey!

Are you or your child just longing to express yourself on a keyboard? So was I, for as long as I can remember.

WHEN WE WERE KIDS..... we all learned to speak before we learned to read and write. So why would you ever try to read music before you can play it?

We play AND record right away, and it's a lot of fun!
Listening back to your performance is a powerful tool.
So we record all the time. And we make it fun.

What people are saying:
“...an amazing instructor...inspiring mentor...compassionate.”
“...a lot of patience...”
“My son's love for music has come from Randy.”
“...positive attitude and friendly personality.”
“...wildly entertaining.”
“ ...will teach you in a way that will make you want to learn.”
“We look forward to our session every week!”

Most music lessons are just too full of un-intuitive systems. They teach reading before you can play a note. What a turn-off! We make sure to play first and we always have great fun. We still get to all the ear ...

Randy connected so well with my son and took extra time with him to explore his interests and hopes, as well as his elocution concerns. We are extremely pleased and HIGHLY recommend Randy.
Eric
My first lesson with Randy went very well! He gave some clear objectives and areas of focus where I can improve my speaking voice, and where we'll focus on future lessons, based on our first phone call alone. At the same time though he made it clear that at any time I want to work on something else, we can change gears and do that instead. I appreciate him setting clear goals and objectives, while being fluid and he gained my confidence as an instructor right away! We worked on a couple of concepts in the first lesson and he used a few different techniques and tools to make these easy to understand. I look forward to my future lessons with Randy and improving my speaking voice!
Kristen
So positive. So much fun. Can’t wait to hear myself grow.

If you are looking for a patient and warm teacher who actually knows what they are talking about, contact Ms. Stewart. We went through 3 teachers to get to her. I wish we were referred to her first. Our kids will be moving to private lessons in August."

9 Steps for Writing a Hit Song on the Piano

What's the secret to writing beautiful and awe-inspiring piano music? Learn the steps in this guest post by St. Augustine, FL piano teacher Heather L...   Music industry legend has it that Lady Gaga, being a classically trained musician, writes many of her songs on the piano first. She's undoubtedly not the only pop, or country, or rock star to use the keys to compose. And if you're studying piano already, you might be itching to try your hand at your own songwriting.
