I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

I like to teach each lesson, for both voice and piano, by spending equal time on ear-training/sight-reading (sight-singing), music theory, technique, and repertoire.

When I teach ear-training to pianists, we do a lot of count-clapping and tonal memory drills. Count-clapping is a way to develop rhythmic accuracy. The act of speaking (counting) while clapping a rhythm activates more of the senses and therefore leaves a stronger impression on the brain, very similar to teaching reading comprehension by getting students to read aloud. Tonal memory is nothing more than developing a pianist’s listening abilities so they can quickly memorize what they’ve heard and recreate it on their instrument. I don’t teach pianists to play by ear, however, but I’ve always had great respect for musicians who have this ability.

Now, piano technique means different things to different pianists. I’m sure as I grow as a musician my thoughts will change, but after 10 years of teaching piano, here’s ...

I love playing piano and I want you to as well!

Music is a fun way to express yourself! Only it’s a little difficult if you’re trying to do it on your own. Trying to sit down and read music can take forever, and there’s a lot of words or symbols that might be confusing. All of that might discourage you to continue.

KEEP GOING! I want to help you understand what all this means so you can play the songs you wanna play.

Things you’ll learn
-How to identify notes on a piano
-How to read notes on a staff (sheet music)
-How to play scales
-How to play arpeggios
-How to play chords
-How to read chords
-How to count and play rhythms
-How to play songs by ear
-How to play songs by reading music
-How to play music and HAVE FUN!

"Miss Fawn (as we call her) has consistently shown professionalism, enthusiasm, and patience in teaching our boys how to play the piano. Each week she goes above and beyond in keeping their attention and helping them learn in a calm, fun and entertaining manner. We enjoy her kind-hearted spirit as she shows them new techniques and insists on them perfecting the ones they've previously learned. Miss Fawn constantly leads by examples with high, yet attainable expectations that push our boys to the next level. We highly recommend Fawn for anyone searching for an instructor with poise, personality, a wealth of knowledge and sincere passion for her craft."

Here, Corona, CA teacher Milton J. shares a few piano exercises to add to your practice to target this common struggle... The dreaded left hand. The hand with a mind of its own, the hand that lags behind the right, and the hand that does not seem that smart. While all of these conjectures are common, it stems from a lack of detailed attention to developing the accompanying left hand in conjunction …
