I earned a Doctorate in Music Education from the University of Southern California, and am a member of the national and state Music Teacher's Associations. Over the years, I've taught every age, from 4 to 72, and everything in between. My students learn to love music, and many made it a college major or professional career.
I love teaching music. It is my favorite thing to do! I am currently redesigning the studio website, but you can check the studio out on the Facebook page at Crown Music Studios.
I've been taking piano lessons with Dr. Coronado for the past two years. My overall experience has been excellent! I have progressed significantly since I began. Dr. Coronado goes above and beyond to prepare me for exams, competitions, recitals, etc. She understands my skill and potential and is dedicated to help me succeed. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to be challenged and really cares about perfecting their piano abilities.
For beinngers, I like to make sure they know their left hand from their right; that when you read, you go across the page from left to right, and then down the page. I also like to ask which kinds of books they like to read - it helps me choose the best method book.
I earned a Doctorate in Music Education from USC; was awarded Most Outstanding Student in my Master's program at USC; and was on the Dean's Advisory Board in my undergraduate program at the University of Arizona. I am a member of both the National and State Music Teacher's Associations, and have been teaching music since 1993.
I charge $60 per hour, and $30 for half an hour.
I was asked to teach children in my undergraduate program from a college class in 1993.
I've taught students of every age - from 4 to 72 - and everything in between. Some of my students play for enjoyment, while others have made music their major in college, or centered their careers around music.
The studio event of the year is our Christmas party. It started out as a Christmas caroling party, where the students and parents would go door-to-door, and we would sing for the neighbors. But the party has become so large, now everyone brings a potluck and stands around the piano and sings all night. I've been told it isn't Christmas without our studio Christmas party!
To make sure both personalities and goals match up.
My own students' questions vary from week to week, but all students go off the Practice Checklist, so their questions typically stem from there.
