Hello, my name is Charlene. I have been teaching piano, music theory and ear training for over 25 years. I am friendly and professional. I have a bachelor degree in Music from Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York and a Master of Art degree in music from UCLA. I am also a Certificate of Merit (CM) piano evaluator of MTAC ( Music Teachers' Association of California) and a member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) . My students perform twice a year in recitals. Students also have the opportunity to take the CM evaluation, perform in branch honors recitals and music convention. I enjoy teaching and my joyous moments come from seeing students achieving their music goals and have fun in the process.
I would like to awe your child's mind with memorable piano lesoons.
I enjoy listening to each child's story, What does he/she likes and how can I tailored my lesson plan to blossom his/her learning curiosity.
My goal at each lesson is to see my student walk out with a confident smile!
Charlene was my outstanding piano teacher for ten years. She is a kind, consistent, encouraging, and very knowledgeable instructor. She guided and motivated me through each level of the MTAC's Certificate of Merit program for piano and I could not have done any of it without her teaching. She inspired me as well as gave me the tools to teach music myself!
Explore piano keys, discover the names of all white and black keys, play games with fingerings and improvise with black keys.

Ask the teachers a lot of questions. Through the questions, you will know if the teacher is a good fit for you. Most iimportantly, you will know if the teacher will inspire you to learn and gain confidence.
