I'm an easy going, very experienced, highly qualified teacher with a Doctoral degree in Music Performance. I help my students with their individual goals, whether learning for fun or for career. I teach Beginning to Intermediate Piano students. Suzuki, Faber and Faber, Alfred, or Royal Conservatory methods.

About Marta
I'm an easy going, very experienced, highly qualified teacher with a Doctoral degree in Music Performance. I recently moved to Long Beach and I'm excited to start my teaching studio here. I've been teaching privately and in group classes for over 20 years, both traditional and Suzuki methods. I have over 25 years of performance experience in classical music. I'm also very active in the non-classical scene I've performed with celebrities like Rihanna, Steve Wonder, Trisha Yearwood and local artists, from modern flamenco to jazz, pop, rock. I'm a recording artist and specialize in improvisation and creative collaborations.

The philosophy is to guide students' musical and educational growth through well rounded and personally tailored instruction that emphasizes practicing strategies in technical facility, musicality, history, theory and
music appreciation. My students enjoy discovering and strengthening their talents through my encouragement-oriented and patient guidance. I accept students of any level, starting from age 5 to adults. My students have won auditions to youth orchestras and colleges and some are now professional musician themselves. Whether you are learning for pleasure or for life goals, my studio is open to all.

From the beginning I was astonished with Marta' s overall prior experienced, which in all encourage me to take classes with her. She is highly patient and explains all her lessons in a way that I can understand perfectly. Marta is highly dedicated and devoted to her students, overall I am more than satisfied with her lessons and effort.

I've been taking lessons with Marta for a few months now, as an adult, and am really enjoying it. Marta is clearly an incredibly talented and engaging musician who is able to translate her experience for folks, like me, who might be new to an instrument or music in general. She is skilled in music theory and technique and really focuses on ensuring her students have the foundational skills necessary to build on as they progress. I'd highly recommend her - she makes the hard work of learning a new instrument (or expanding your existing practice) incredibly fun and rewarding.

If you want to learn how to begin playing the piano, I am you man. I focus on scales, selections, and cadences to help you learn the beginnings of piano playing. I can take you through simple four part melodies with pedals, playing from a lead sheet, and even a bit of transposition. A small amount of music theory will be involved in your lessons.

About William
Hello everyone. My journey into teaching has opened up so many doors for me and has made me a better instructor. I have been participating in music programs from the age of 3. Music is my passion. I have learned many instruments along the way, and I have pressed through to achieve not only my academic aspirations, but my personal goals as well. I tailor my lessons to my students, pin pointing what we need to work on, and reinforcing what is already going well. I can come to you in person, or via internet. My goal is to help you reach your goals musically, and to encourage you in your journey to becoming a musician.

When I started playing Jazz there was hardly any reliable resource available
to teach me where I grew up. Through a vast hard-earned experience both as a professional pianist/keyboardist and teacher, I have created a system of learning that saves students countless hours of wrong practice and frustration understanding the theory side. Many times before the start
of a semester at the Jazz College where I teach I tell my students
that my course syllabus can be summarized in 2 words:
Applied, Theory. Those concepts connected when taught and applied to
students through an efficient system of enjoyable practice leads to students playing Jazz sometimes in 3-6 months!

I gotcha covered! We can even compose short background music for a movie. I teach ages 5+ and would love to get you started in online lessons!

About Cathy

My background includes formal voice and piano with the founding members of Opera San Jose-New York Metropolitan Opera Singer Irene Dalis, Oberlin College Professor David Rohrbaugh and SJSU Choral Director Dr. Charlene Archibeque. I have performed with the San Jose Symphony and San Jose Opera. I was a scholarship recipient and graduate of San Jose State University, received a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance, a secondary teaching credential in music education and have attended courses at the University of California Davis Mind Institute for a certificate in autism studies.

During the first months of my teaching I received several inquiries from parents with children on the autism spectrum who could not find a piano teacher who would take them. After researching and working with these families, my studio became one of the largest that provided all inclusive and adapted music lessons to students with just under 400 students. My work with special needs students was the focus of a 2009 documentary film in which several of my students and parents were featured discussing the effects music education had on their child.

About Jeny C.

Close

Hello, my name is Jeny and I teach piano to beginners, ages 5 and up. I believe that music is an important part of education, especially piano, as piano is required for music majors. I am also a strong believer that anyone, no matter what age, can learn the piano. It's never too late to start! With that being said, I learned piano as an adult using the Suzuki method and am now teaching it to others. So, classical music is what will be taught in my lessons after book 1 is complete. You or your child will be playing music by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann, Clementi, and so on starting on book 2!

About Jeny
Since I was a little girl, I had always dreamed of learning to play the piano. My parents could never afford to pay for lessons, so I had to wait until I was an adult. But let me tell you something, it doesn't matter what age you are! Everyone has the ability to learn if you put the time and energy into it! I learned using the Suzuki method, therefore that is my preferred method of teaching. Starting on book 2, you or your child will be playing music by well known composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Clementi, Schumann, and Mozart!

I will teach you correct posture, finger posture, technique, how to read music, and you will be given suggestions on what to practice and work on after each lesson. You will also learn to play with confidence.

For the students that come to my home to learn, they will also have the chance to perform in fro
nt of an audience on stage, on a 7' grand piano, twice a year. We will have these recitals once in the spring and then again in the fall. It's a great experience to have!

About Jill
Hi! I have a passion for teaching and playing the piano (of course!) and I want to share it with you. I am my happiest when I am teaching, and I strive for all of my students to experience the equally rewarding joy of learning the piano.

I have been playing since I was 3 years old and taking lessons since I was 5. I graduated with a degree in Piano Performance from BYU, where I learned so much more than just playing the piano. I have experience teaching studio and online lessons, accompanying and collaborating, tutoring students during practice, and playing for weddings and events.

Outside of music, I love dogs, being in the sunshine, and cooking and baking. My favorite pastime is being with my husband and dreaming about getting a puppy.
