About Patrick K.

Hello and welcome to my music studio! If you/ your child is passionate and excited about learning music, you have come to the right place. Talent is not required, as that is something to be earned through passion and hard work. That is why I specialize in individualizing my teaching approach based on my student's specific musical needs and learning style, so that any students can transform their passion for music into something truly wonderful.

A little bit about me:
I am a classically trained musician who has studied at CSUF and performs Classical, Jazz, Popular, Musical theater, and Opera. I have performed in venues all around the world including the Hollywood Bowl, Segerstrom hall, Walt Disney concert hall, La Madeleine (Paris), Glinka Capella (Russia), The Rock Church (Finland) with artists like Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, John Williams, the LA philharmonic orchestra, and the Pacific Symphony, among others.

We are so thankful we found Patrick! Patrick is a very effective teacher who’s able to relate and motivate students. Our daughter was loosing interest in playing piano due to her former teacher’s approach. Now she’s back to practicing because she wants to and is so excited to see Patrick each week. We are very greatful that she’s back to loving piano and continuing to learn.

Patrick is a great teacher, and very patient. I've never learned how to sing or read music before, and he teaches at a pace that's good for me. I highly recommend him whether you're an adult or you're considering enrolling your child.

So far so good. My son seems to enjoy it for the first time. Concerned he would lose interest but Patrick is terrific.

We love Patrick! And so do our girls!!!
He is very patient with them and finds creative ways to keep them engaged :)
The best part is that with only few lessons, our oldest daughter (7 years old) was able to perform jingle bells in front of the entire family on Christmas Eve. :)

My 7 year old warmed to Patrick right away. He is very kind and encouraging. She felt confident enough to sing 2 songs for the family at Christmas. He is also accommodating considering schedule changes which often happen.

I have had a great time learning how to play piano. Patrick made it easier to comprehend and helps you understand the material. He is, definetly, a great instructor.

Patrick was very good at explaining what exactly is going on when I am singing. This was helpful in visualizing and addressing the areas I needed to improve.

Our 7 twins started taking lessons with Patrick several months ago. He is a phenomenal teacher and our kids have really enjoyed taking lessons from him. In fact, this past weekend when the lesson was coming to an end, one of our twins said he didn't want it to be over. I highly recommend Patrick if you are considering a piano teacher.

Patrick is a great teacher. He teaches kids how to express themselves through music. Really exposes them to creativity while letting them choose what they want to learn. I would highly recommend Patrick to any student

Daniel is helping my son prepare for an important audition, and he has been helpful not only in providing the coaching, but also in selecting the best songs. He is a patient and positive teacher.

Patrick is a great teacher who really knows what he is talking about! I don't even feel embarrassed to sing (horribly) in front of him. His warm ups are very helpful and the way he explains everything is completely clear. If I don't understand something, he has no problem repeating himself or trying to explain it in a different way. I've learned a lot from his lessons, and he's a really fun person to be around. I think everyone should pick him as a teacher!
