Thank you for your interest in hiring me as your piano teacher. The piano is a wonderful instrument to introduce you to the world of music. I started taking lessons when I was six years old. Seven years later, I began teaching my neighbors children at her request. Thirty years later, I am still teaching piano. Mostly, I have taught private lessons.  Some of my students have gone on to be church pianists and piano teachers (much like me). Others have become jazz pianists and composers. Some play just for the pure enjoyment and relaxation that the instrument brings. A few have entered music competitions where, proudly I write, they hav ... View Profile

Choosing a Piano Teacher in San Diego


Taking piano lessons is undoubtedly the best way to learn to play the piano. Having an instructor is a great way to get individualized attention and follow an effective learning plan to develop the necessary skills; however, because Lessons.com offers so many potential instructors in the San Diego area, it can be overwhelming selecting the right one.

So, if you're considering signing up for piano lessons in San Diego, check out the list below. It contains four helpful ideas of considerations to keep in mind when narrowing down Lesson.com's instructor selection, in order to ensure you end up with the piano lessons or classes that are just right for you.

Location
Piano lessons are an (at least) weekly commitment, you want to ensure that you choose a piano instructor who teaches somewhere that is convenient for you to reach. After all, you don't want to sign up for lessons in La Jolla if you live and work in the Gaslamp Quarter. Minimizing travel time and inconvenience will maximize the chances that you show up regularly and on time for your lessons.

Teaching Style
Most piano teachers vary from one another somewhat in their instruction methods, so consider a teacher's style before choosing to take from him or her. Teachers may vary in class type -- whether they offer private lessons or group lessons, or they may vary in teaching philosophy -- like the Suzuki method versus a customized method. Consider what learning style and class type you best work in and choose a teacher whose methods align.

Additional Opportunities
Piano lessons are a great way to learn to play. However, many piano teachers offer additional piano-related opportunities for a more well-rounded experience - like social gatherings with students, piano recitals, or field trips to see the Camarada Chamber Music Concerts. Consider whether you simply want to learn to play, or whether you're looking for more from a piano teacher, then choose accordingly.

Costs
Music teachers vary from one another in cost, so set a budget and look for a teacher accordingly. Check with teachers you are interested in to ensure there aren't any additional costs associated with taking lessons (e.g. extra books, equipment like metronomes, etc.) Piano lessons should simply enhance your life, not cause any added stress!

Are you interested in signing up for piano lessons via Lessons.com? Then, enter your email address and zip code above. We can help you get started with a selection of teachers in your area, so you can narrow down to find the person who is just right for you.
