Learning is more fun in groups, it just is!  As humans we learn best when we can "see, do and teach".  We observe, we imitate and then share what we learned.  In the Simply Music program we take this approach with learning music.  Students learn songs together, collaborate, support and often teach each other.   I've been teaching Simply Music since 2007 and have taken hundreds of students from the basics of piano to playing wonderfully complex classical, blues, and jazz pieces.  Along this journey students explore the world of composition and improvisation, applying tools they're learning to create their own piec ...

In the 1st lesson, I always ask the student what their goals are, what kind of music they want to play, what problems they have, etc.  Then I test them on basic skills to find ‘holes’ in their knowledge/skills to find the right level to start.  I have an uncanny ability to discover their main problem areas and/or misunderstood terminology and get to work right away handling them. It's rewarding to see students very quickly begin to brighten up as they clear away years of confusion and musical barriers. I’ve met many seasoned pros who have holes in their knowledge or skill that have prevented them from reaching the ... View Profile

During the last ten years of teaching, I have encountered many different types of students at a wide range of ages (4 to 65+ years old). Throughout my teaching experience, I have learned to adapt to my students before I make them adapt to me. That way, the students felt more comfortable and were more encouraged to learn and succeed. At this point in my life, teaching became something natural rather than a planned process. Nevertheless, I plan my lessons according to the students’ needs. Even though I started learning music at an early age, I believe that it is never too late to learn since music is one of the most beautiful languages a ... View Profile

Los Angeles Piano Lessons

(81 reviews)

Music lessons of any kind are, unsurprisingly, very easy to find in Los Angeles, and the enormous range of community centers, performing arts schools and private tutors helps to keep the cost of lessons down. It is also possible to arrange tuition online, usually via Skype, which may not be much cheaper than in-person teaching but certainly provides flexibility.

California Institute of the Arts has a Community Arts Partnership (CAP) that reaches out through schools and community centers to offer music tuition, including of course piano classes.

Palms Recreation Center, which comes under the LA Department of Recreation and Parks and is located on Overland Avenue, holds piano classes for children, along with tuition in other musical instruments. Students of all ages and skills levels are taught by Hollywood Academy of Music, one of the premier music schools in LA, which also has studios in West LA and the San Fernando Valley.

The Suzuki Method, a special method of teaching music to young children that treats music as a language learning process, is taught via the Suzuki Association of the Americas, which is active in LA and has a system of matching music teachers to children. The student-teacher match is done through the SAA website.

Garvey Community Center in Rosemead has performing arts classes that include piano lessons for beginners.

California Music Academy has music centers in several different locations and provides piano lessons for children, with the additional option of home tuition, and Watts Towers Arts Center, which links into the CAP network, also has a series of programs for children.

Claremont Community School of Music has private lessons for all stages of expertise and also offers private master lessons for those contemplating a career in music.

Colburn School is a performing arts school located in downtown LA that has an adult studies division, and the McGroarty Arts Center has lessons for youngsters and adults.

West Valley Music Center is highly experienced at teaching all age and skill levels, and the tutors all have at least five years’ experience in teaching. Tuition in the home and also online via Skype is provided by professional musicians under Sound Life, which has programs for children and for adults.

Children of all ages are taught by Foothills Music Together, which has studios in several different locations and which starts from the premise that all children have inherent musical abilities. Piano lessons for all ages and levels, starting from the age of four years upwards, are provided by Rancho Canyon Music, which is based at Rancho Santa Margarita and offers home tuition in a wide range of communities in this region.

Piano Studies LA will provide tuition for all at one of its tutors’ homes, and also in the student’s home, depending on location. Lastly, for advice not just on piano purchase or rental, but also on music schools or private tutors, call into one of the Steinway Piano Galleries in Los Angeles. These are friendly places and the salesmen are well versed in the piano tuition system in the city and throughout this region.
