I have been teaching piano for 4 years. Within the first few lessons the student can expect to play a few familiar melody and chords. After a while the student can expect to play a repertoire of entry level songs. I teach out of Alfred and Bastien piano books.
Hi, Hi, there! My name is David and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2011 and have loved helping my students learn their favorite songs, become confident on their instrument, and impressive their friends with their music chops. I went to UC Santa Cruz and earned a degree in Literature with a minor in music in 2010. I'm a laid back and easy going person and my teaching style is laid back, personable, and low stress. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! *** Travel Equipment *** Electric guitar, acoustic guitar, electric bass *** Specialties *** Piano, Drums, Electric/Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Music Theory, Recording
I teach students to play all genres of music from beginning to advanced levels.
I can teach to play by reading sheet music and/or by ear (which means to play music without needing the sheet music in front of you)
All Levels are welcome
I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. It began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16. I went on to attend and graduate from Christian Heritage College (now called San Diego Christian College) with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Business. I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire. I also have a great deal of experience in Pop, R&B, and Classical so I am able to help students excel in these genres as well. *** Lesson Details *** As your ...
All levels and all ages as well as performance preparation
I am passionate about sharing with you all the knowledge that I've obtained from over 45 years of of studying piano with some of the best teachers available in the country. I will help you to both discover that sound image that is only yours and then to work on how to make that image come alive for you at the keyboard. I promise that working together will be a fun and inspiring adventure into that most expressive form of communications which is Music. One of the best ways to judge a teacher is by the way he plays. I am a performing teacher, still studying, and will be giving my second solo recital at The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad in February 2013 and will be playing masterpieces by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin and Liszt. You are, of course, invited to the recital or ...
I enjoy teaching students of all ages and experience. My students range from adult and child beginners to advanced performers.
I play acoustic piano and keyboards, and belong to the Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC). I teach piano students in many communities, and have taught music in elementary, middle and high schools. My professional experience has included performance, as well as accompanying vocalists, choirs, instrumentalalists and musical productions. *** Lesson Details *** Students learn to play many styles of music. During lessons they learn how to read music, and play music by ear. Some students are new to piano, and others have had lessons before. They all enjoy playing different kinds of music, such as popular, classical, jazz, contemporary. I emphasize music reading, keyboard technique, ear training, chords, theory, musical styles, music composition, and performance. The main goal ...
I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a parent. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and Music Teacher's Association of California. I have a bachelor's degree in music education from Bob Jones University, and a master's degree in Vocal Performance from Azusa Pacific University. I also studied for 2 summers during college with a master teacher. Over the years I have performed and worked with both children's choirs and adult choirs and given private concerts. My enthusiasm for music has spilled over into a love for teaching. I have taught private voice

Reviews From Students and Parents (Piano - Guitar - Voice) My time in being instructed by Steven B on piano was a great, informative experience. Ever since the first lesson, he is a very good teacher that clearly knows what he is doing. Mr. Bruce taught me at my own pace, taking time to help me work on skills, especially small details that help me perform much better. He is a very skilled instructor, teaching me pieces from not only music books that he provides, but also the valuable skill of learning by ear, a skill few other teachers bother to touch on. Mr. Bruce has helped on a number of occasions with songs that I am learning on my own and fit time into our lessons to work on them. He is always willing to let the student work on what they like as well as what he gives out. When I ...
