Private Piano Teacher

A solid, artistic, and flexible piano technique from the beginning. One of the fundamental parts in learning to play piano is to learn the basics of piano technique, which includes proper posture of the body when sitting to play piano, proper fingers, hands, and arms position. The development of the arm and hand flexibility in order to learn the legato and staccato performance from the beginning of the piano studies.

Throughout my 20 years of teaching experience I have developed different methods for children and adults to build a flexible and artistic piano technique that has worked with all my students.

The proper use of the arm rotation, wrist flexibility and how the wrists and arms help to lead the direction of the phrases are fundamentals to attain a beautiful and rich tone .

My daughters and I have been taking lessons with Jesus for over 6 months now. I have been absolutely thrilled with Jesus’s lessons for both me and my two daughters. We have learned A LOT about the etiquette and technique of piano - including how to read music and properly position ourselves/our hands when playing. It’s not just about the music - it’s about how music transforms us and has the power to bring so much joy! Jesus is a very patient and caring teacher. I truly enjoy having him in our home and the girls are always excited for their lessons.

During this COVID crisis, Jesus has done his absolute best to teach us through Zoom lessons. He is always flexible, easy to talk to and fun to work with.

I would HIGHLY recommend Jesus to anyone looking for a dedicated and exceptionally trained teacher, who is always on time and excited to watch you succeed.

Thank you, Jesus!!! We adore you!!

My wife and I took 2 months of lessons from Eric and they were all great! We were both basically beginners (I had some memory from lesson that I took as a kid) and Eric helped us get started and off on the right track. He has a great/fun personality and is a great teacher. Unfortunately we were unable to keep taking lessons with him due to a conflict in scheduling. I would totally recommend him as a piano teacher though.

Experienced piano teacher for 20+ years, available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in their playing skills. I specialize in teaching as early as 3 yrs old, I typically use different methods of teaching, no specific curriculum, it depends on students' personality, cognitive development, age level. I use online piano games & teaching tools to help students develop the habit of practicing with more fun.

I do recitals at least twice a year, & that includes Community Recitals, Students participates to different programs & festivals sponsored by CAPMT District 1, National Federation of Music Clubs & Music Development Program by Royal Conservatory of Music to assess their knowledge, skills & abilities.

Ms. Sally is a great teacher who teaches both our two daughters, currently 8 and 4 years old. She is very approachable, patient and knowledgeable. Both my daughters love her and have progressed very fast since taking her piano lessons, and we are very excited about their next levels! My big daughter also takes voice lesson with Ms. Sally's husband, Mr. Tim, shortly after starting her piano lessons, and has also made significant progress over shortly a few months of time. We have been building a great relationship as between our families too =)

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Sally for a year and a half now and it is great to see her progress. Ms. Sally is very knowledgeable, patient and easy to talk to. She encourages you to stay and watch during practice so you are aware of what is being taught.

Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Tamura H.
Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

"My son has been playing piano for 9 years but he hit a wall with ISSMA state silver in piano solo last year, so our goal is achieve piano solo state gold this year. We made the switch to Ardalan didn't know what to expect just 2 months before ISSMA events and my son has earned ISSMA state distinction gold medal this year with Ardalan's help and hard working.

Ardalan's teaching method is eye opening to us after many piano teachers we have experienced in the past. He has been teaching my son many technical piano playing skills he desperately needs but no other teachers have ever taught him before. And Ardalan's performance preparation tips are so helpful for my son to perform in the real event."

"Fawn is attentive, patient, timely, efficient, proficient and a fantastic teacher

Fawn is great! She is attentive, patient, timely, efficient, proficient and most importantly a fantastic teacher. As an adult learner she has always tailored her lessons to me in a non-stressful, easy, relaxed manner with a mind to achieving my goals, she weaves her magic and somehow learning to read music and music theory are fun!! I am playing pieces I never dreamed I would master in a relatively sort amount of time.

I highly recommend her."
