Online Piano Teacher

I've been teaching piano for 8 years and my students have gone on to enjoy performing and playing the piano in multiple facets. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play some of your favorite songs and as time goes on you'll be able to perform for your family and friends. I specialize in classical, pop & rock, typically use Bastien books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About David

For over 30 years, David has had a passion for the piano. Classically trained as a child by numerous teachers, David has mastered the expressive aspect of piano accompanied by a solid rhythmic foundation. David is also a composer and is currently supporting the release of his 3rd CD! A graduate of SFSU with a focus on Music Theory, David has been teaching students for over 8 years. By living the music on a daily basis, David is easily able to channel that energy through the lesson and to the student.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is important for the student to HAVE FUN and enjoy the piano lessons! I make the lessons fun with my relaxed, yet focused style of teaching.

Today we had our first lesson for our 6 year old Sofia. David was very pleasant and kept Sofia focused for the whole lesson :) Great start!

First session was great. David appraised my skills (ha), picked up where I needed to go next, and created a lesson plan on the spot. He did not ask me to buy more lesson books, but used the ones I brought from a previous class - which I appreciated. He says that if I stick to the plan, I'll be playing Maple Leaf Rag in two months. Game on!
His studio is very well organized & equipped, and we went right to work, beginning and ending on time.

Online Piano Teacher

With piano lessons, you can expect a well-paced relaxed environment yet, with a high expectation of professionalism. I would go at the pace and styled you'd like to learn.

About Erasmo

Hello Parents and Students,

I have been teaching and writing music professionally for ten years. My first introduction to music was just like some of you, starting in high school where I had a great teacher that encouraged me to play. This helped me so much, and I wouldn't be where I am at if it weren't for his help and positive encouragement. Now I try to encourage all of my students the same way.

After high school I went on and played percussion with various Orchestras such as the "œInland Valley Symphony Orchestra" and "Mt. San Jacinto Symphony Orchestra."

I have also been involved in the DCI (Drum Corps International) and Drumline community. I toured for four years and experienced performing with groups such as Yamato Drum and Bugle Corps 2002-2005, Black Knights 2006, and RCC marching and winter percussion under the direct

ion of Scott Johnson & Jeff Lee in 2002, and Sean Vega & Jim Wunderlich in 2003.

During my college years I started playing Jazz Vibraphone in my school'™s top big-band. This allowed me the opportunity to play Jazz Piano which I have performed and still study until this day. As a result, Jazz has now become one of my biggest passions.

As a Professional International Composer, I have had the privilege of writing and arranging for many marching bands, wind ensembles, and indoor percussion ensembles, including orchestrations, recordings and sequencing projects for media, and musical theatre in the United States and Japan.

I am also currently an adjudicator for the Southern California Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) and a member of the Vic-Firth Education Team.

I hope that this gives you a close and personal Idea of where I come from and hope that I can help you get the most out of your experience with music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that in order for you to get the most out of our lessons it takes both, the Teacher'™s and Student'™s understanding and attention from both ends. sometimes giving all of the information in the world won't help if one there is no engagement and two if me as a teacher don't make sure that you understand. So I like to make sure to explain things in more than one way to make sure the student understands the concepts and what to practice.

I like to keep a relaxed atmosphere, but also making sure that there is a high level of professionalism and expectation of attentiveness from the student.

Of course, I also understand that this all depends on the age of the student, and as we meet and get to see what it is that you want to focus on and I will make sure to concentrate on that and help you reach your goals!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Mallets, Concert and Marching Sticks, Metronome, Practice pad, and Literature.
(Acoustic and Electric Piano are available depending on the time we arrange our lessons at the studio)
(Electric Drumset Available soon)

*** Travel Equipment ***
Mallets, Concert and Marching Sticks, Metronome, Practice pad, and Literature.
(I sometimes bring additional implements, such as hand drums, like a djembe and other accessories, depending on the focus of our lessons.)
I may be able to bring a Keyboard upon request

*** Specialties ***
I have been performing with Drum and bugle corps since 2002, (DCI)

Marching Rudimental, and Concert Percussion styles. All Percussion.
Orchestral, Marimba, Vibraphone, and Marching Percussion.

I specialize in the Jazz genre, and have performed Jazz piano.. which includes sight-reading and chord recognition in the Jazz idiom.

Playing piano is fun! So should your piano lessons.

I've taught piano since I was in high school, and continued to teach while I was a student at Cornell University. I also taught theory classes in the Cornell Piano Society, where I served as President for 4 years.

Why? I simply love music, piano, and sharing it with others.

While I'm classically trained, I've dabbled into other genres, such as Jazz, Rock, Pop, R&B, songwriting, and music production / audio engineering. I've recently been accepted into the Steinway & Sons (the piano makers) Teacher Partnership Program. Feel free to message me for more details!

About Marwan

I started playing piano when I was 3, and began writing music at the age of 6. I've taught music and piano for over 12 years, and tutoring other subjects for over 5 years.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I graduated from Cornell University in Electrical & Computer Engineering, with a minor in Music.

As a student, I was President of the Cornell Piano Society for 4 years. I spent much time teaching piano and music theory to fellow Cornell students, faculty, and staff. I've also organized many concerts, recitals, and events during my tenure.

After college, I went on to work for Intel & Apple as an engineer, while continuing to teach and tutor on the side. Later on, I founded my own startup company centered around Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, and unmet needs in the B2C market.

I typically travel

to each student's home for lessons. I travel all around the Bay Area: as far north as Richmond, as far south as Los Gatos, as far East as Livermore (and every place in between, including the Peninsula).

I have taught piano off and on since I was 17 years old and for 3 years recently. I enjoy children ages 5 and up, beginners and intermediates, and beginning adults. I choose the curriculum according to the student's age, ability, learning style and choice. My primary goal is for the students to have a positive experience with piano and to look forward to coming each week so that they will want to continue piano or another instrument in the future. I have a lot of incentives and success in this area. I charge low fees as some clients are unsure of their ability to learn at first. I am very patient and non-judgmental, and I love what I do.

I live on the west side of the valley and usually teach in my home although I am available for outcalls depending on the distance, day and time.

I also have simple piano keyboards for rent or sale at a low price.

Thank you for your interest.

About Judy

I have taught may different kinds of subjects, ESL, Drug and Alcohol Education, Social services, in the past. Mostly, though, I have taught piano, my first and greatest love, starting in the 70's and off and on until I took it full time during the past 2 years. I develop special relationships with all of my students, and together with individually specific incentives, nearly all my students progress very quickly in their learning. I enjoy children of all ages as well as adults.

DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.

Online Piano Teacher

Experienced teacher specializing in the beginner and intermediate level. I am a classically trainee pianist who has been studying for 12 years under an MTAC judge. All ages are welcome. You’ll be able to create a strong foundation in all aspects needed to be successful including note reading, ear training, sight reading, improv, and more! Let’s get started on your road to a life filled with music!

About Amy

I am a classically trained pianist with 12+ years of experience on the piano.

Students in my class can expect to be gradually taught all of the fundamentals necessary to learn the piano. All lessons are based on student needs and the lessons will go as fast or as slow as the student requires. I am able to teach students classical, contemporary, jazz, and more.

I personally believe that all piano students should have the basics of classical piano in order to be successful in other genres and will focus on technique for beginning players.

I hope to share my passion for the piano with others and have a great time doing it as well!

"My 5 years old son takes lessons from Karen. I have no idea how anyone can be so patient with a child who clearly somedays does not want to learn but she
has this ability to kind of go along with whatever nuisance my child has started and then steers him towards the lesson. She breaks up the time into so many small pieces doing/learning different activities that a child will not get bored with what they are learning that day.
I also should mention that she comes up with different ways to undo bad habits that have been picked up and also find and suggests new ways to learn and remember the right way.
I wish we had found Karen earlier."
