Hi, I'm Shannon! I'm the Owner and a teacher at Creative Cultivation Studio, a small music lesson studio based in La Verne, California.

I started Creative Cultivation Studio in 2020 through teaching online lessons to my personal studio of 50+ students, LLC'd the studio in 2022 when I also invited a few more teachers to be a part of the studio to help me with the large student load I had been teaching by myself for several years.

The culture of my studio is one of kindness, nurturing to students, and focusing on cultivating creativity and knowledge in students' lives. I make sure that all of my staff are a great fit with this culture, and have a love and a joy for music that is evident in their teaching.

We build lessons around each individual student, catering to what it is they need, and where we can best help them build their skills. We understand that every person is different, and want to ensure that each student is learning as much as they can so they can become the best musician they can be.

    Starting my classes I knew absolutely nothing about the piano and she has taught me at my learning speed. She takes time to answer all my questions. I just love her and I feel that I am learning.

    Shannon is very kind and positive. Made learning fun. She uses little incentives to encourage practicing and my daughter just loved her. We are so sad she moved.

    Frequently asked questions

    Before starting lessons, we need to know 3 simple things:

    -the student’s age

    -if the student has any musical experience (it’s completely fine if they don’t!), and if yes, do they already have a set of books they have been working through 

    -if the student has access to an instrument to practice

    $165/month for 30-minute lessons $200/month for 45-minute lessons $250/month for 60-minute lessons We typically recommend starting with 30-minute lessons for beginners.
