Carlsbad Music Lessons

 

Sally Piano Music teachers have introduced students to the joys of playing music since 1999. We only hire the best music instructors, and our Yelp reviews and the testimonials on our website are proof of our high standards in selecting teachers.

Knowing how to play an instrument well is just the first prerequisite for a Sally Piano music teacher. We look for people with a good personality and the ability to customize lessons to each student.

Patience is a virtue for everyone, but it is a necessary component for teaching music. All children learn at a different pace. A slow learner may grow up to be a concert pianist! Sally Piano’s patient music teachers know practice makes perfect. They will organize lessons to fit your child’s progress.

The Sally Piano staff will be happy to accommodate students if they want to change teachers and work with someone more compatible with their interests and learning style. (Although we specialize in teaching children, we take the same care when matching teen and adult students with a compatible instructor.)

Some students feel more comfortable playing music in a familiar environment, so we offer students the choice of lessons in their home or in their instructor’s home studio.

Every season, children get to share their musical accomplishments with friends, fellow students and family at a recital. They’ll also receive a certificate of accomplishment as proof of their newfound skills.
