Carmel Valley Music Lessons

Carmel Valley Music Lessons

 

Sally Piano Music offer lessons in several Southern California locations. Private instruction takes place at the student’s home or the teacher’s home studio.

We specialize in piano and violin lessons for children, but welcome aspiring musicians of all ages to join us. We also offer voice, guitar and bass guitar lessons. Guitar students can study using electric, acoustic or flamenco guitars. Want to play guitar in a rock band? One of our guitar teachers will help you prepare for your first gig.

A skilled instructor mixes music fundamentals, proper technique, and easy-to-follow practice pieces to make every lesson appealing. Once the student masters the basics of their instrument, the teacher guides them though playing a full song. Students eventually learn an entire repertoire, and may even decide to perform with a band.

Our teachers have music degrees and experience teaching children and adults. We interview applicants in person before hiring them to ensure they meet our high standards. Our instructors have performed in symphony orchestras, jazz groups and nightclubs around the world. Their knowledge of different musical genres, from classical to rock, and jazz to Latin, makes it easy for them to relate to students’ varying interests.

Sally Piano Music Students receive a Certificate of Merit, and showcase their skills in recitals at Halloween, Christmas and other times of year.

If you want your child to take music lessons, but aren’t sure if you can afford it, we offer a variety of payment options and no long-term contracts.
