My piano studio is located in a separate space at the back of my home in Albany. It can easily be reached from nearby Berkeley, El Cerrito, and Kensington. Recently rennovated (formerly a detached garage), the studio is accessible through a gate on the driveway. If you are interested in piano lessons for you or your child, please contact me to schedule a free trial lesson.
Being able to play music comes through consistent practice. This is because learning an instrument involves reading, listening, and the physical act of playing. The concepts learned in the lesson have to be reinforced at home in the form of practice. Talent is only a very small part of the equation. In actuality, consistent practice is key. It is true that music, like language, might be picked up more easily for some than others, but the truth is, everybody can learn it. And, everybody has to practice it to get good at it.
