Avatar of the tutor
Sally S.
San Diego, California
Hone your talent on the piano with lessons from a professional pianist.
Experienced piano teacher for 20+ years, available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in their playing skills. I specialize in teaching as early as 3 yrs old, I typically use different methods of teaching, no specific curriculum, it depends on students' personality, cognitive development, age level. I use online piano games & teaching tools to help students develop the habit of practicing with more fun. I do recitals at least twice a year, & that includes Community Recitals, Students participates to different programs & festivals sponsored by CAPMT District 1, National Federation of Music Clubs & Music Development Program by Royal Conservatory of Music to assess their knowledge, skills & abilities.

Ms. Sally is a great teacher who teaches both our two daughters, currently 8 and 4 years old. She is very approachable, patient and knowledgeable. Both my daughters love her and have progressed very fast since taking her piano lessons, and we are very excited about their next levels! My big daughter also takes voice lesson with Ms. Sally's husband, Mr. Tim, shortly after starting her piano lessons, and has also made significant progress over shortly a few months of time. We have been building a great relationship as between our families too =)

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Sally for a year and a half now and it is great to see her progress. Ms. Sally is very knowledgeable, patient and easy to talk to. She encourages you to stay and watch during practice so you are aware of what is being taught.
