Private Classical Piano Teacher

Hello!

I've been a piano teacher for almost 20 years and absolutely love it. I specialize in teaching people how to read piano notation. My main emphasis will be to get you to read music and enjoy doing it! I have a particular love for classical, but also love to help people learn whatever their favorite music is too! Let me know what you're interested in and we can work on it together!

About Karolyn

Hello! I am an experienced piano teacher in La Mesa. I've began playing the piano at around 10, and soon feel in love with it. My dream was to one day be able to play anything I wanted and then be able to pass along all that information to anyone else that wanted to learn! I honestly believe that AN

Classical Piano:
With my piano teaching method you will be able to play any style you want as the basic techniques and reading skills are acquired.
We start with very simple pieces and as the student advances there are endless, beautiful songs to learn, enjoy and perform for others.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Michael is a great piano teacher! He gives me great advice on how to make my piano playing more musical, and has a genuine love for music that radiates in our every lesson. Also, he’s a very charming personality away from the piano. Highly recommend!
Connie
Michael is an engaging instructor with an ability to break down difficult concepts into understandable examples and explanations. I studied piano as a child and wanted to relearn as an adult, so while my foundation didn’t perfectly fit either a beginner or intermediate skill level, Michael readily adapted his pedagogy to it and helped me identify areas for improvement. I highly recommend him for students of any musical background or skill level.

Very passionate about piano and able to convey ideas.. also very good at feeling out what student is seeking to achieve. Definitely recommend Paul if you are wanting to take playing piano as a serious endeavor
Arthur
My experience with this teacher was horrible. Paul has no patience for a child that might not pay attention as much as necessary. He has forgotten what it is to be a child or how to win over a child and make a lesson fun.
My child had one previous lesson with Paul. It is true that she was not following his directions and his frustration was quite obvious.
On my second visit I was appalled by Paul’s behavior. Again my child wouldn’t sit down on the bench correctly. Verbatim this what occurred next, I quote: “This is not going to work out. Get out of my house NOW, NOW!(Screaming, like I was going to prolong this). I have better things to do than waste my time with your daughter. I don’t want to take your money.

It is true that my daughter can be difficult when approached in an authoritarian manner. However, my daughter is not yet six and Paul brought my daughter to tears. Surely this behavior was at best inappropriate and says more about the person Paul is than about my daughter. A simple “ May I have word with you in private” would be a mature way to part company. Not throwing a 6 year out of your house because you are frustrated. I was horribly offended by his manner and attitude. No way to treat a 6 year old.

This man has no patience with young kids. I would stay away from this teacher unless your child has some experience with piano. Definitely not child friendly.
Normally I do not post reviews unless something extraordinary happens This is one of those: extraordinarily bad.
An apology is in order if this poor excuse for a “teacher” has any understanding of the unnecessary hurt he has caused.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I've played piano since I was 5 years old. Playing piano has greatly influenced my life, as I went to college for piano and composition. I love the piano and I love teaching piano. I teach all levels of piano with an emphasis on performance technique, practice technique, theory, and creativity. I encourage students to explore their own musical feelings and voice. I teach all genres of piano- not only Classical. If a student wants to learn to accompany or write their own music, I can help! If a student is interested in traditional Irish piano accompaniment, I can teach that!

About Connor

I'm a film composer by trade, but I love teaching as well. I love sharing my passion for music with others. I have a BM from Appalachian State University in piano performance and music theory/composition. I also have an MFA in music composition for the screen from Columbia College Chicago. I stu

Amazing teacher! So sweet and takes her time to explain everything. Lukas loves her. He has improved so much just from one lesson. He looks forward to play accordion. Highly recommend Connor. She’s amazing!

Connor is wonderful! She is teaching our 10-year-old daughter, who is thrilled with the lessons. Connor is warm, personable, patient, and supportive with her. Connor leaves great notes after every lesson with updates on what to practice in between. We couldn’t have hoped for more!

Connor was really nice. She quickly understood what was my level and adapt to what I need. Really nice first meeting!

"We could not be happier with Marwan! Most importantly, my daughter is thriving with his instruction -- though we like him too :) Marwin brings expansive experience in piano and beyond. For piano, he's got a great balance of being exacting and precise with instructions yet just as flexible as we need him to be if my daughter hasn't been able to practice due to other demands. We like that he doesn't make her feel guilty about that -- but is patient and able to get her on track so she can fulfill her amazing musical potential. We love his in-depth knowledge in a variety of things and he's charming, warm, and humorous to be around. Highly recommended: you'll enjoy meeting and working with him."

Not only did he teach me the basics of each instrument, I also learned about music theory and composition all at my own pace and in a relaxed environment.
