Testimonials from our Santa Monica students
Our children Anouk and Max, both took their very first piano lesson with Olesya, starting at the age of 5. Because Olesya has a great feel for young children she was able to invoke a love for instrument and music. The lessons were always fun, and never a chore for them. Playing in a recital was one of the fist major milestones for our children… We have recommended Olesya to other parents and we know their children also loved the teaching style. Best, Diana B., Santa Monica
My son had four guitar teachers until we found Music Teacher LA. Their teachers are experienced and inspiring. We have seen big progress and my child looks forward to his lessons. I highly recommend this school! ~Matt K., Santa Monica
Music Teacher LA was happy to help me find just the right match of teachers. I’m an adult with prior music experience and was looking for a voice and piano teacher. I’ve been taking voice lessons with Carol for a while now and really enjoy it. It was only $5 more per lesson to have someone come to my home which was a HUGE convenience for me. I also tried lessons with a piano teacher who told me I was too advanced for her. I appreciated her being so forthcoming. Music Teacher LA was happy to make other recommendations and really accommodated my schedule. ~El, S., Santa Monica
Music Teacher LA is a very organized, professional and friendly music school. We had an amazing experience. Thank you. ~Julia, Santa Monica
I highly recommend Music Teacher LA to any family interested in professional and fun music lessons for their children. My sons have studied piano and guitar with Music Teacher LA since they were 5 years old. I have seen my boys progress well and perform in the annual recitals, which were always well-organized and entertaining. Aside from the lessons, Olesya, the owner, is wonderful to work with, she is very kind and accommodating. You will have a great experience with this group. ~Joyce F., Santa Monica
Just bought a very old Baldwin upright and didn’t know if even the best piano tuner could get her sounding like new. Well, I did find the best piano tuner and within two hours of her diligent work, it sounded like it just came off the showroom floor!
I highly recommend Yoshi from Music Teacher LA! In addition to being a miracle worker, she is simply a lovely and charming woman. ~Marnie T., Santa Monica
Santa Monica piano lessons individualized for you
Piano is a great and easy first instrument to learn- a student just needs to press the key to produce a sound. A comprehensive knowledge acquired by students in piano lessons can later be applied to any other instrument.
Our Santa Monica piano lessons are tailored to each student’s tastes, needs and learning pace. Students study ear training, notation, rhythm, technique, memorization, sight reading, improvisation and music theory. Music Teacher LA also offers composition and music production per students’ requests.
Our earliest recommended age to start taking private piano lessons is 4.5 years as a longer attention span and the ability to retain materials is becoming more natural at that age. Only in rare cases, we accept pupils younger than age 4 into our piano program after meeting and evaluating them. Practice time can be anywhere from 5 minutes for a very young beginner to any number of hours for an advanced adult.
Each student has to have an access to a piano or a digital keyboard with 88 weighted keys to practice. Music Teacher LA will gladly offer you an advice in purchasing a piano.
Our piano lessons are offered Monday through Sunday in the comfort of your home or in our Santa Monica studio.
