Piano Lessons in Roseville, CA

By Marsha Chantaclair - Roseville Piano Teacher (https://takelessons.com/profile/marsha-k)

Hello! I'm Chantaclair, and I simply love the small-town feel of Roseville, but with a big city convenience and elegance. It has the best of both worlds. If you’re interested in taking piano lessons in Roseville, there are private music instructors as well as several music schools to serve the diverse community of committed residences with discerning tastes.

In Crocker Ranch, there are schools with strong music programs. Woodcreek High School has an award-winning music program, and the piano classes are usually full. One of the junior high schools - Cooley Middle School - has a talent show where students have an opportunity to play for the whole school!

In a music program, here are some things to look for: Does your student want performance opportunities? Ask if your instructor provides a venue and dates to perform for large and smaller groups. How about advance piano theory and education beyond your weekly piano lessons? Inquire about master classes or group lessons where students can improve their ability to share their music with others if they so choose. Several music schools also offer group lessons. Always ask what’s available; don't be shy about inquiring about what options may suit you best.

Sometimes, a student will benefit from widening their skills with opportunities to accompany a singer. Chances to play duets with other pianists or keyboardists is something to think about. One more thing to ask is if your instructor has the ability to help you learn how to write and perform your own unique style by writing your own pieces! We have a recording studio close by to make your own CD to cherish at One Eleven Recording Studio.

Additionally, there are several places in Roseville that offer live piano music as an inspiration. For example, "The Place" has a grand piano in the restaurant with a fabulous artist at 221 Vernon St. in old Roseville. Several other restaurants - such as Gingers in Roseville and Shady Coffee & Tea, The Owl Club and the Glass Turtle - even have open-mic nights for budding musicians to try their talent on the locals.

What about music? Where can you purchase what is needed, and is there additional fees for materials and books? Roseville has stores for piano music, such as Barnes and Noble and Cover to Cover; and nearby Rocklin has "The Music Store" that takes consignment pianos to buy or sell as an advantage. Also, there is a fabulous piano store at the Steinway Piano Gallery in Roseville on Pleasant Grove Blvd. Stop in and run your fingers across the beautiful 'ivories' to get inspiration! They also rent their store space out for recitals. How convenient is that?

Roseville has plenty of music opportunities and so does Rocklin, right around the corner. Check out the vast opportunities right in your own backyard. Opportunities abound for any aspiring student looking to take piano lessons in Roseville. Anything you are interested in at any level of sharing or just educating yourself is available to your own enjoyment or that of your current and future family.

Marsha K.

Roseville, CA

Piano is skill that is kinetic as well as audible and visual. It is something that will take you from childhood long through your life. I have taught for many years (25+) and have found that students with enthusiasm and dedication can accomplish whatever they set their goals to do. Since I am also a life-coach, my students benefit from many years of experience as well as bonus skills like goal-setting, tools to get over humps as well as Master Classes and Theory expertise. Music is what moves the universe!

About Marsha

Hello hello! Perhaps you are reading this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy which can assist you make an informed decision. If we are a good fit, lessons and learning progress more joyfully.

I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that?

Music has b
lessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Teaching at the Young Artists Conservatory of Music; Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight.

I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest and most intelligent people around. Each of my students have their own individual goals and reasons for taking music lessons, which we revisit monthly. I believe that my role is to be a support and tool for them/you to accomplish the goals set, working with music that delights and educates.

You want the best teacher, who offers information, example, practice and performance opportunities and then gets out of the way of the student's own "voice" (whether playing or singing) so that they can be free to create their own style.

*** Lesson Details ***
In our lessons, we work with a predictable schedule of balance. We have weekly exercises to make strong fingers and or voices, and technique and theory practice to hone skills that will improve our performances, whether they are for others or for our own benefit. Each student of piano can learn how to create and write their own music in time, choose their own pieces to work on, and have a say in their classical and performance goals.

We have a program of advancement, so you and your loved ones can visually see your progress and measure your skills, complete with awards and trophies.

What you learn, has everything to do with your commitment. Practice doesn't make perfect, Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.

Learning the piano ought to be a JOY. I believe in playing the piano, not 'practicing' it. Enjoy what you do, and you'll do it longer and with celebration instead of duty.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano - upright; CD player; Music stands; Dozens of music books and lesson materials; flash cards; computer and music writing program; mic and mirror, syllabus.

*** Travel Equipment ***
No travel.

*** Specialties ***
Over the years I have dabbled in most methods, but finally come to use my own syllabus and musicianship. I can easily adapt to your favourite if that is your desire. I specialize in a total music education, not merely in learning notes. It is like looking in a mirror and only seeing eyes and skin. Music has many facets and we discover all of them.

Ms. Marsha is such a great teacher. My son who is 11 years old is learning a lot in such a short period of time. She makes it easy for him to understand how to read notes and how to play them in such a fun way. We were just going to try 8 sessions, but after just 2 sessions, we would like to continue for more. We just love her! I'm glad she had an opening when we were looking for a teacher.

Ronald S.

Citrus Heights, CA

I teach all ages and mentor anyone who wants to learn.

About Ronald

With a Bachelor's Degree in music from California State University Sacramento I studied with the best, including graduates from Juilliard and Eastman. I focus on what my students want to play and provide a harmonic grounding to enable the student to improvise or just "jam" with anybody. I also provide a positive reinforcement atmosphere and will accept ground floor beginners to advanced intermediate students.

I believe it's important to create a relaxed, stress free lesson atmosphere to encourage creativity and self confidence. While mistakes are expected I believe b
uilding a students self confidence will make those mistakes disappear. We'll start with fundamentals which will build your understanding of what you're playing and be able to apply it to whatever music you wish to play.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I read music and can sight read any style. I specialize in classical, but also play jazz, ragtime and new age music.

Steve P.

Carmichael, CA

I have been teaching children and adults for the past 15 years. I have worked in public schools as a band instructor, choir director, orchestra director and general music teacher. My private
piano students have enjoyed playing from a wide variety of musical
styles from classical to modern.

About Steve

Steve began his musical journey on the piano as a child, later moving on to explore
clarinet and trumpet in band before discovering the French horn in high school.
Though he earned his bachelor of music in horn performance at CSU, Sacramento, he never gave
up the piano, teaching students and accompanying choirs throughout college, and
earning scholarships for both instruments.

Steve has played for a number of musical groups, from orchestras, chamber
groups and community bands to being a pit musician in musical theater and
opera. This year, he will be joining the William Jessup University
Wind
Ensemble and playing horn in that group. For the last several years, Steve has
directed the orchestra at his church, and has also arranged hymns and worship music
for church orchestras and smaller ensembles.

Besides teaching piano and horn, Steve's musical interests include music theory, arranging, composition, piano ensemble playing and ethnomusicology.

Andrew L.

Sacramento, CA

Basic piano skills are taught, that can be applied to a variety of styles (from jazz to pop): scales, chords, left hand accompaniments, and basic improvisation.

About Andrew

Hi, my name is Andy, and I am a Music/Composition major currently at American River College, where I have studied composition and music theory with jazz pianist Joe Gilman for 2 years. I have also tutored the Basic Musicianship class there for 3 semesters, where they like to call me resident "music theory nerd".

I also studied Creative Writing for 2 years, and won the 2008 Newsom Prize for Poetry, and have been published several times in the Poet's Corner of the Sacramento News & Review. In addition, I am a seasoned actor in live and musical theatre. Previous roles include Beadle Bamford i
n Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, Ezra Chater in Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, and most recently the Blind Hermit in Young Frankenstein.

My teaching style is friendly and sympathetic; my passion is to help students feel free and able to pursue outlets for their creativity. I like to boil it down to the essentials, and I believe you learn best by just DOING. Practice doesn't always make perfect--but it sure helps. :)
