Teaching Piano in Elk Grove: The Gift of Music

By Kecia T.-Elk Grove Piano Teacher

Not everyone plays a musical instrument. Yet, many of us wish we did. It’s not until we become adults that we regret not learning an instrument or being able to play music. So when you make the decision as a parent to offer music lessons to your child, remember that you are giving them a gift that will last a lifetime.

I am the mother of two boys and I teach piano in Elk Grove, CA. I specialize in teaching beginning piano and the majority of my students are children, ages 6-10. I love working with kids in a variety of after school programs. With my patience and enthusiasm, I know just how to guide your child on their musical journey, and encourage them to learn. As a piano teacher, being able to teach your child is a wonderful gift to me.

When I was a young piano student I wasn&rsq
uo;t properly trained. As a result, I had to relearn some basic music concepts. When I began teaching piano, I vowed that I would teach the proper techniques and concepts correctly to all my students, so they would not have to go through what I went through. This is truly where my passion thrives!
Our children give us many gifts throughout their childhood. The gift of music is a gift that keeps on giving. It’s a great time to learn piano in Elk Grove, CA!

Steve P. Carmichael, CA

About Steve

Steve began his musical journey on the piano as a child, later moving on to explore clarinet and trumpet in band before discovering the French horn in high school. Though he earned his bachelor of music in horn performance at CSU, Sacramento, he never gave up the piano, teaching students and accompanying choirs throughout college, and earning scholarships for both instruments. Steve has played for a number of musical groups, from orchestras, chamber groups and community bands to being a pit musician in musical theater and opera. This year, he will be joining the William Jessup University Wind Ensemble and playing horn in that group. For the last several years, Steve has directed the orchestra at his church, and has also arranged hymns and worship music for church orchestras and ...

Bianca P. Sacramento, CA

From starting to learn the piano, to an intermediate level.

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 have taught/tutored/play piano for 10 years and am currently working as a pianist/accompanist for 4 choir and teach piano to over 10 independent students and group piano classes.

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 ...

Along with teaching from the method books, I offer my students a variety of musical genres to play--from classical to blues and anywhere in between. I also help students write/compose their own original songs 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 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.
