My specialties are piano and keyboard. I am a member of the Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC). My students have the opportunity to play in recitals and other performances. They can earn certificates for their progress. I enjoy teaching all types of students, and have experience teaching all ages from elementary to high school. My students learn to read music, play classical and popular music, and compose their own music. I specialize in creating an enjoyable and rewarding lesson experience.
*** Lesson Details ***
My promise to you that that you will learn and enjoy the piano! During piano lessons I will show you how to read music, play music by ear, play different kinds of music, like popular, classical and jazz. You will also learn chords, keyboard technique, musical style, and how to perform for others. I include ear training, music theory, music composition, and how to stylize your music.
You will enjoy lessons, and through practice, master many types of music. My students have several opportunites to perform each year in recitals, and in the Certificate of Merit program. Through this program you can receive certificates that show your musical achievement.

Very good start, with some useful practice planned out.
Carolyn is an experienced and very dedicated teacher. She is kind and patient and definitely has a gift for teaching, my 12 year old daughter has learned so much in so little time. We definitely plan to continue with Carolyn, our goal was to have my daughter read music by the end of the summer and she was already playing after the first session. Carolyn is also easy to work with, very accommodating and responsive. We are very grateful we found her.+ Read More

I highly recomend Mrs. Carolyn H. she is a GREAT teacher!!
Carolyn H. is a great teacher! I had started taking private piano lessons with her at the age of 5 and by the age of 15 I had moved onto composing my own music! :-) now with Mrs. Carolyn teachings I have been creating beautiful music ever since.
I thank you Mrs. Carolyn H. for your wonderful teachings and knowledge you gave me to become a great pianist! :-)
We would recommend this teacher highly.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Carolyn for almost a year, and we have been very pleased with the entire experience. Carolyn is a super teacher, and has a gentle, kind approach to teaching which I believe is especially helpful in working with children (my daughter is eight years old). She certainly knows her field well and is able to relay the necessary information in a straight forward, yet fun manner. Carolyn obviously has a passion for teaching piano and keyboard.
