Hi, thanks for checking out my profile! My name is Clarissa Lee and I've been teaching piano for 14 years. I'm an active member of the Music Teachers Association of California. I am committed to providing professional, well-rounded music instruction. My goal is to provide a comfortable environment for you to learn and enjoy music!

I provide a combination of repertoire, theory, sight reading, and ear training appropriate to your level. My piano studio is very fun, with plenty of games and learning incentives. Students are given many performance opportunities.

I expect each student to practice consistently each week. I believe that training in classical music is essential to build quality musicians. The core repertoire will be from the great classical composers, but I always add kid-friendly music to the assignment, whether it’s the James Bond theme or Star Wars.

· Piano · In studio Fun, energetic, knows how to level it down or up for both of my children. I'm thinking about taking lessons from her too! Highly Recommend!
Chloe Feb 12, 2017
· Piano · In studio Easy to talk to, always professional and ready to go when we show up, very patient with my daughter who is not a "natural" at piano. I'd definitely recommend her.

· Piano · In studio Clarissa goes out of her way to make it fun and interesting for my 8 year old daughter to learn. My daughter always looks forward to going to the lesson and has incentives to practice at home, which is nice because I don't have to bug her to practice. She has been flexible with us when we have to reschedule. I definitely recommend her!

· Piano · In home Ms Lee is an exceptional piano teacher. Her wise words of advice and critique helped me improve my musicality and phrasing. She knows what kind of music you like and always picks pieces that are fun yet challenging to master. My favorite quality about her though would be her personality. I have had previous teachers that are excellent but mean and too hard-core, and Ms Lee is definitely not one of them. I always come to the lesson and am greeted with a warm smile. Her patient and cheerful personality makes piano lessons a very enjoyable time of the week.
