Welcome to Sally Piano Music

We are a consortium of music teachers, students and aficionados

Offering in-home and in-Studio Music Lessons 

Sally Piano Music is a full-service music school that has taught over 5000 students in San Diego County, Orange County and Riverside County since 1999. We have several music studios in the San Diego metro area , Orange County  and Riverside offering piano, voice, violin and guitar lessons. Our highly-qualified teachers can teach in students’ home or at one of our studio locations. We offer lessons to students of all ages, but we specialize in introducing children to the rewarding world of playing and performing music. We recommend children begin their music training with piano. Piano lessons are the foundation for building many musical careers or hobbies and it’s the easiest instrument for young children to master. Music lessons boost children’s confidence, stimulating their brain power and giving them a positive outlet for self-expression. Children’s music lessons at Sally Piano Music last 30 or 45 minutes, once or twice a week, However older beginners, adults and advanced students can take 60 minutes lesson once a week.
Our instructors are music majors with experience teaching music to children and adults. Teachers customize lesson plans to each student’s interests and ability, and most of all, we make learning music fun. We interview potential music teachers face-to-face, and conduct background and reference checks before hiring them. Most of our teachers stay with us long-term, which provides continuity and a better learning experience for students.


Sally Piano Music – The #1 San Diego Music Studio

The dedicated teachers at Sally Piano offer music instruction to students at all levels. We don’t have a set curriculum or grading process. Our San Diego music school is designed to be accommodating for beginners as well as advanced musicians.  Anyone can play music and reap the social, creative and mental benefits of learning an instrument. We don’t offer just one studio location in San Diego, like many other schools. Find a teacher located close to your home and minimize travel time.
Look for a private music teacher resume that includes training from well-known music colleges and/or previous teaching experience. Regardless of musical expertise, your child’s teacher should have a relaxed manner and make him or her feel at ease during lessons. Learning to play an instrument is a challenge, but it should be fun as well.  A teacher’s technical musical knowledge is only one aspect of a good learning experience. Our friendly and highly qualified instructors have performed in orchestras, jazz clubs and church choirs. Their familiarity performing live enables them to prepare students for recitals and showcases.
We also teach electric and acoustic guitar in all styles. Whether you like folk, rock, pop or country, our teachers can help you learn all your favorite songs. Bring in your favorite sheet music and soon you’ll be playing or singing a beloved tune instead of just listening to it.  If you don’t own your own instrument, we can help you find the best deal on pianos. There are many music shops where you can rent grand or portable pianos for practice and for your in-home lessons. You can purchase musical instruments, including guitars, bass guitars, violins and drums from Musicians Friend in San Diego or online stores. We recommend, however, that you buy guitars or other instruments in person, so you can get a feel for the instrument before using it. If your child is taking lessons, it might be a good idea to rent an instrument or buy it used. Children may need to sample a few different instruments before finding the one that suits their personality.

Sally Piano Music has inspired my daughter to love music


My 4 years old daughter naturally loves to play the piano. She had two other teachers before we met Sally and they were not able to help my daughter to keep her focused and have fun /enjoy the piano lesson. With Sally, my daughter became excited every week to go to piano class and practices at home on her own. Sally has a way of inspiring my daughter to love playing the piano even more. My daughter is always excited for the recitals (they have 3 this year), which is very helpful to promote self confidence at young age. Sheri, another teacher with Sally, is now my daughter’s piano teacher that comes in our house. She is also very good and very patient. My daughter likes the fact that Sheri makes her create her own music and plays it on the next class. Both  are highly recommended!

I’ve been with Sally piano for a year now and absolutely love our instructor John, he is patient, fun, never mad, on time and very polite! My daughter is very happy and making  good progress! Thank you Sally!



Susanna Parma piano lessons

Extremely happy with the results


Sally was recommended to us by several of our friends whose daughters were already taking piano lessons from her. My seven year old daughter started taking lessons several months ago and I have been extremely happy with her results. Not only is she progressing quickly but Sally is a great role model. She is warm and friendly and my daughter looks forward to her lessons every week.

I highly recommend Sally to anyone at any age


While many piano instructors teach children, I had difficulty finding someone willing to have me (an adult) as a student. I tried two different teachers before finally hearing about Sally. Her lessons focus on the basics (like scales and lessons from technique books), as well as full songs. She breaks the songs into manageable portions, so I am never overwhelmed and notice my progress from week to week. Her approach works. I am getting better at reading notes and I think I sound better too. I highly recommend Sally to anyone, at any age, who needs a piano teacher.

Ms. Sally has been a wonderful teacher


Ms. Sally has been a wonderful teacher for my two girls (ages 5 and 7). My oldest daughter started about a year ago and Sally’s big smile and gentle nature with her has made piano lessons a highlight of our week. So much so that my younger daughter begged and begged to have piano lessons with Ms. Sally as well. I am amazed at how Sally has taught them not only to play and read music, but that she has given them a love of music. It almost seems that they can’t walk past a piano without playing a little something.

6 years experience with Sally Piano Music !


Sally has been the piano teacher for my son since he was 7 years old (now 13) and for my daughter since she was 6 (now 10). Both my children have learned to play well under Sally’s patient and gentle yet firm instruction. Sally creates an appreciation for music and is a very accomplished pianist herself. She has helped coach my daughter in her interests in composing her own music, and is flexible in allowing the kids to learn and play music they enjoy. Sally is wonderful with kids; we have enjoyed working with her over the years and have benefited from her skilled teaching.
