Denise R. Palm Springs, CA

About Denise

I'€™ve always had a love for music. When I was 8 years old, I taught myself how to read music before my first piano lesson because I was so excited to learn. I continued taking piano lessons throughout my school days and became involved in choir in high school. When I began college I decided to study business. I auditioned for choir and realized that my dream was to become a music educator. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. I studied piano, voice, clarinet, and music education. I had a lot of experience playing the piano and singing that I decided to learn the clarinet and join the concert band so I could have band experience. I was also involved in hand bell choir and continued to perform with the choir after I graduated. After

Denise has a very peaceful demeanor about her that makes children feel comfortable and at ease. My daughter enjoys the instruction she receives, and the way she receives it from Denise. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a comfortable environment for their children to learn.

Rhonda G. Hemet, CA

About Rhonda

With over 20 years of experience as a musician, piano teacher, and music director, I am able to explore all aspects of musical theory and make the piano an enjoyable and exciting instrument to learn to play. My lessons will be rhythmically exciting, and never boring. I always have book lessons as well as personal musical pieces that the student would like to work on. I most often will incorporate ear training in all of my lessons without being obvious about it, as well as performance. I believe it should be music that speaks to the heart. Not only will students achieve their goals in learning to play their favorite song or actually play well, they will find a peace and a calm in freely exploring the art of music. Whether they find it to be an escape from it all, or their ...

Breanna J. Hemet, CA

About Breanna

My name is Breanna, I have been playing piano and taking piano lessons for seven years since the age of fourteen. I am currently enrolled in the music program at Mt. San Jacinto College, awaiting to get my A.A. in music. I believe I have the sufficient ability to transfer my knowledge of playing the piano to my students via techniques that I have learned along the way through my own piano lessons such as different techniques in helping to build hand independence, proper fingering and posture, general knowledge of music theory such as the way scales, chords, melody and harmony work and also reading and composing music. I've always had a passion for both music and teaching, not only do I want to make great music, but I want to help others learn to create great music. I have both the ...
