Greetings! Alec is the Piano Teacher for Kids in Orange County. Along with tutoring piano, he is also a music composer for film, video-games, and multi-media. With over 15 years of piano-playing experience, and 5 years of teaching, Alec is happy and excited to achieve whatever your child's goals are in playing the piano.

Within the first few lessons, you or your child will be able to:
(1) Understand the Foundations of the Piano
(2) Effectively Read Notes
(3) Recognize Patterns in Music
(4) Use Both Hands Fluidly Within a Song

Alec's foremost philosophy in teaching piano is following the student's goals and dreams, not his own. While curriculum work is certainly vital, it is far more important that his students receive help they need in accomplishing their biggest aspirations in music. Whether your child wants to be a music composer, rock-star, or just playing for their loved ones, Alec can bring them closer to that goal.

Alec's promise to you is to deliver lessons that are exceptional quality, student focused, and go above and beyond the weekly lesson time!

You have the choice of receiving in-home piano lessons, or at Alec's home studio. Should you chose Alec's studio, students will have the opportunity to utilize Alec's hardware and software he uses to compose professional music. His students can easily record themselves playing and in real-time, analyze any mistakes they made

1-hour Lessons also include ear-training. In ear training, we develop our inner ear, the ability to accurately hear and identify musical elements in our head while reading, listening to, and thinking about music. This form of training is guaranteed to help your child learn music faster and anticipate various musical elements.

Contact Alec if you have any questions regarding his teaching and he will respond within 24-hours.

About Alec W.

Children deserve lessons that are customized and focused on their goals!

Hi! I am Alec, a piano instructor and experienced music composer based in South Orange County. My purpose on this earth is to serve our future generation and introduce them to the world of music. I now give back to my own students this great gift of music.

Within the first few lessons, I ensure my students learn how to:
(1) Cultivate a Love of Music and Piano
(2) Effectively Read Notes
(3) Fluidly Use Both Hands
(4) Impress Friends and Family With Their Favorite Song


---- My Background ----

Meet Alec Weesner; a Christian, Music Composer for Video-Games, and Piano Instructor in the Southern Orange County Area.

For over 15 years, I has been instructed by master piano tutors, such as Tiiu Marie Jankowski and Steve Schmidt. These instructors have passed on and taught me the piano and specific teaching skills needed to instruct both children and adult students. I now return the favor to my own students.

I graduated California State University Fullerton with a Bachelor's in Business Marketing.

I am also founder and host of Music Design, a video series analyzing video-game music and uncovering the techniques and tricks the great composers of the past have put into their songs.

Whether you are a parent with a child who wishes to learn the piano, a developer with a game without music, or anyone else who just needs some advice, I am eager to help you achieve your goals.

From the first time Alec met my grandson he was understanding, encouraging, extremely patient and knowledgeable. The next lesson assignments were clearly written out with the expectation that time would be allowed for daily practice.

Thank you, Alec

I got so much value for my daughter's piano lessons. I was surprised when she played her own songs to me. On top of that, Alec was very on top of things when it came to lesson planning, homework, and attendance. If you are new to piano, I would recommend signing up with Alec.

As the parent of my child who took lessons, Alec is by far one of the most organized tutors around. My daughter got through her first book at lightening pace and we are excited to continue taking lessons.

Fantastic lessons! I learned a lot about songwriting and even made a portfolio of songs I've written!

I learned so much with Alec as my instructor. He not only taught How to play the exercises, but Why these exercises are important. The highlight for me was actually writing my own song, which I thought I could never do. Alec really makes it simple to learn musical concepts.

Alec was such a blast to work with. He was extremely clear and precise in his teaching and provided many fun activities to engage in as well. I learned and mastered the material much quicker than I thought I could. I even learned how to compose my own songs!
