A Bit of Everything

I am having a great time with my piano lessons! Not only am I learning standard classical and popular pieces, but I am also getting the added benefit of branching out into rock and blues. I had not anticipated learning theory, but all my questions get answered and I feel like I am growing under the direction of a teacher with a very broad knowledge base.

Sunnie H. Capistrano Beach, CA

About Sunnie

I grew up in Colorado and received my Bachelor of Arts degree from CU. My main focus of studies was theatre arts, including acting classes, dance, musical theatre, voice, and music theory. I've been playing the piano since I was 8 and singing just as long. i spent years in LA, Las Vegas, Nashville and Austin "honing" my craft: singing with bands, songwriting, and doing musicals. I have also in the past few years learned to play the guitar and refreshed my piano skills (after a few years off). My proudest accomplishment now are my 2 CDs of all original music, both released in the last few years :) I am eager to teach all I've learned in the past to new students! *** Lesson Details *** My focus in a lesson is not just to teach someone how to sing or play, but how to perform. I want ...

Sunny is a great teacher.

Being an older beginner, I wasn't sure at first if learning to play the piano would be feasible, but after my first lesson with Sunny if felt a lot better about accomplishing this life-long dream.
Sunny is a great teacher, very good at explaining the music theory and the lessons take place in a calm and relaxed environment.
She picked the right study materials and after 11 months of lessons I am able to play easy songs (with both hands).

I'm a new student.

I recently started taking piano lessons for the first time at the age of 65. Pierre has been very encouraging and patient. He has also been very professional, and has even been flexible when my schedule has conflicted with our lessons, allowing me to reschedule when necessary. I am enjoying this very much, and that has much to do with Pierre.

Great teacher!

Pierre is by far the best music teacher I've come across. I used several other teachers before Pierre, and none of them were able to take me to the level Pierre has. He's very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient, but best of all, he's a lot of fun. He has the perfect blend of making the lessons challenging and informative, and at the same time enjoyable. His love for music is infectious, and my appreciation for music has grown tremendously since working with him. I can't recommend him enough!

Pierre Rules!

Pierre is the raddest music teacher I've ever had. He's always on time, always prepared, and always ready to have a great time on any instrument. His sense of humor is great and he makes learning even the most difficult songs fun. Since he can play any instrument, you'll always have someone to play along with. He has a deep love for all kinds of music, which is the best quality in a musician, teacher, and drummer. I can't recommend Pierre enough. He's given me the confidence, both musically and personally, to drum in a band, Hearing Damage. THIS DUDE RULES!!!

I've been taking my son to Judi now for almost a year. He has grown by leaps and bounds since learning under Judi! His lessons in reading, playing, and understanding music under Judi has increased his passion and confidence in playing the piano which he loves so much.

Judi is professional, courteous, and accommodating to us and she is one of the most patient people I've ever met, I love working with her and I highly recommend her as a teacher. She does exceptionally well handling children. I trust her and I appreciate her style of teaching for my son.

As a beginning "youthfully mature" piano student, I was very concerned about finding an instructor who was both adept and well experienced with teaching adults. Whether it was 'beginners luck" or plain good fortune, I found just that person in Judy. Her approach to teaching is multi-faceted with focus on the essentials of theory, technique and playing to enjoy many types of music. She has high expectations of her students and recognizes good effort always.
I highly recommend Judy as a very capable instructor.

I am an adult student who returned to piano after 25 years. I had only taken lessons for 5 years originally, so after all the years in between, I was essentially starting over. Judi has been great, she tailors my lessons to my pace and keeps me moving for continual learning. After a few months of lessons I feel very comfortable and I'm surprised at my progress, Judi is very musically talented and shares her talent and knowledge in a professional and friendly manner. I really enjoy my lesson time, my favorite moments are when Judi sits on the bench with me for duets, so fun!
