Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I can teach beginner to intermediate piano, which would include scales, proper fingering techniques, teaching to play with both hands together and even into modes and Jazz chords and jazz theory. I believe my students need to learn music theory along with piano, other wise they don't understand what they are doing. Plus it will help them in the future with music.

Teaching since:
June 2013

Teaching is my passion. Over the last few years I have worked with some amazing students of all ages. My youngest student was 2 years old and my oldest student is in her 70's and I absolutley love that! I have experience working with children with learning difficulties and students who get frustrated really easily. I love helping students fall in love with music, like I did growing up with my music teachers and professors. I am passionate about music and passionate about my students learning and excelling in their craft. I enjoy working with all ages and all types of music abilities. As a teacher I really push my students to understand music itself and spend time going over theory, which is super important. I would love to help you or your child grow and learn in their music abilities and hope to hear from you soon!

Music Teacher
May 2014 - Nov 2014
Gymboree PLay & Learn Gym

I was the music teacher at three locations around the Bay Area teaching music classes to children 0-5. I really enjoyed my time working for Gymboree and the parents and kids I had the pleasure of working with on a weekly basis. I love to use the tools that I learned from my experience there and incorporate that into my teaching style with some of my younger kids. My goal in all of my lessons is for my students to find an appreciation for music and hopefully at some point fall in love with it.

Bethel Christian Church

In the summer of 2013, I had a group of about six teenagers who were interested in singing and learning how to harmonize and ultimately sing for fun. For a total of three months, we meet each week and talked about reading music, we sang songs together and worked on harmony. The environment was fun and I was always open to new idea's.

Out of the 3 piano teachers Victory had within the last 3 years, Astrid has been the best of them all! She's not only the most patient, but also very thorough, and professional! She's been both a teacher and the sweetest friend to our son! Thank you graciously Astrid!!

Astrid makes learning fun, knowing how to motivate kids with encouragement and rewards, and keeping her expectations high. She rolls with their distractions and gets them right back on track, which I consider to be a superhero skill. She is always prepared with new songs and changes the key to fit their voices. My 7 and 9 year old have dramatically improved their ability to hit notes, something I could never do. I walked down the hall last week to hear my hyperactive boy playing scales and songs on the piano...without a reminder! I believe music skills will serve my children for a lifetime, and I am so grateful we have Astrid to ignite their interest!

My son is very happy taking lessons from Astrid. She is very encouraging of him and explains everything at a level he can understand at the same time challenging him to learn more.

I highly recommend Astrid!

After looking for weeks for a vocal teacher, I came across Astrid here on TakeLessons and felt she might be a good person to try a few lessons with. I showed up the lesson to find out that she was the older sister of two of my good friends and to find out that she is the best vocal teacher I could have found! She's very patient, fun, talented, helpful, and silly, and she really makes learning to train my voice awesome! I take one 1/2 hour lesson usually once a week with her, and I've already completed two full songs with her in the few months I've been training with her!
Astrid is definitely someone I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a vocal coach, plus she has an awesome voice. Definitely going to continue lessons with her! :)

Astrid is great with our 14 year old daughter. She listens to her, challenges her, and is helping her develop a lot.
