Bianca P. Sacramento, CA

From the basics of learning music theory, through 20th century music theory, as well as some jazz theory.

About Bianca

Hello! My name is Bianca and I would like to help you enter and enjoy the wonderful world of music! I was introduced to music at a young age and haven't stopped playing. I love to have fun when I play, but I love sharing my passion and joy even more! I feel that my experience as a teacher has helped me grow to build relationships with my students. I don't treat lessons like Juilliard studies. I have fun with my students. Music can be a serious study, but it is also one of the most fun and rewarding. My goal is to build a good relationship with my student so that I can work with them, rather than against them, to achieve the same goal. Making music is fun, but developing a passion for it gives it the life that nothing else can. Qualifications: A.A. Traditional Music 13 Years ...

Kevin B. Wilton, CA

I am a Music major and have taken and master music theory in college and apply its principles work regularly.

About Kevin

Hello everyone! My name is Kevin and I am a pianist, vocalist, and instrument connoisseur. I have been playing the piano since I was 10 and taught myself how to play by ear. Growing up in a church environment I first taught myself gospel and later jazz. I personally love jazz, and this is one of my areas of strength. It wasn't until I was about 16 years old, while attending my first college, that I started exploring music in depth and as a potential career. As I started to delve deeper, I began to compose and have had some ensemble groups perform my pieces. I have arranged pieces for choirs and accompanied them as well. I also play guitar and bass guitar. As a well rounded musician I can teach you how to play the piano, how to learn music theory, how to compose and the beginning ...

You will enjoy taking lessons with Kevin, because he adapts very well to your skill level and is very intuitive as to whether you 'get' what's being discussed. He is patient as well, just like he says.

Kecia T. Elk Grove, CA

I start teaching theory right from the first lesson. I believe that if you combine method and theory equally at lesson time, the student learns at a faster pace, and comprehension levels increase as well.

About Kecia

I took piano lessons as a child and my passion for music blossomed. I have been playing for over 30 years. I have always loved writing my own songs, and finally recorded a CD of original contemporary piano. I started teaching piano in 2007, and I am passionate about teaching my students proper techniques and concepts correctly so they will become proficient at reading and playing music. I have always connected easily with children and consider myself very fortunate to be able to teach the joys of music to children of all ages! I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications, I performed as a member of a local college orchestra for 2 years, where I played second string violin and piano. I also have performed drama on stage. From 2011-2013 I have taught music classes to kindergarteners up to

I have only met with Esther three times and seemed like I have already had her for a year. She's a very dedicated and a very knowledgeable teacher. She taught me some of the techniques of becoming a good singer. I felt comfortable with Esther and never made me nervous. I had to stop because I'm focusing on my guitar playing but would like to go back to Esther in the future to help me with my singing again. I'd like to thank Esther for being so patient with me.

Esther is a wonderful teacher. Brittney is learning a lot and her piano playing has improved in the short time Esther has been working with her. We intend to continue the lessons; however, we are changing the payment situation, which is why the lessons were cancelled.

I really enjoyed taking lessons from Kat. She's a fun teacher who knows her stuff. She explained to me the mechanics of singing in a way that I could easily understand. She was great at pinpointing the exact areas that I needed to work on and gave me specific directions to enhance my abilities. She made me feel very comfortable and helped me get over my fear of singing in front of others. I look forward to more lessons with Kat in the future.

PERFECT MATCH FOR MY 5 y/o!!!

Kat works very well with little ones. She was very relaxed from the very first visit which definitely made it even easier on my 5 y/o daughter. During our last lesson my daughter had the case of the "sillies". Kat's tone remained the same & never once showed any signs of frustration. She was and is absolutely wonderful with her! Kat has an amazing voice & my daughter cant stop talking about her & cant wait for her lessons. We definitely made the perfect choice!

Excellent Voice Teacher for My 8 Year Old Daughter

Kat has been an excellent voice instructor for my 8 year old daughter. She is kind and patient, yet has a buoyant energy that engages my daughter in a way the some teachers cannot. The techniques and skills she is imparting to my daughter are invaluable. I highly recommend Kat for anyone (of any age too!) looking for high quality voice lessons.
