Teaching for California Music Studios has freed up so much of my brainspace to focus on what I really care about—music. It’s such a relief to leave the recruitment and the fee collection to someone else. The recitals have been so much fun for my students—instead of seeing only other pianists, they get to see guitar, clarinet, drums…even banjo!


California Music Studios makes it easy to balance my teaching with my other responsibilities. CMS sends me students and I am able to coordinate lesson days and times with them directly. The CMS office staff is always helpful and great to work with.


Mariah has been a perfect fit for our daughter. We honestly couldn’t be happier or more satisfied. She is a phenomenal teacher, and we feel extremely blessed beyond words to have her in our lives. I have no doubt that this is one thing our child will continue to excel at, and we have her teacher to thank for that. 🙂

I have seen great improvement in our daughter’s confidence and abilities to sing. We are very happy with Mariah and all the hard work, patience, and dedication she has with [our daughter]. Mariah is professional  and passionate about her work and we love how her attitude towards music excites our daughter.

Our daughter continues to enjoy and learn her music from her teacher. She looks forward to her lesson every week with Mariah and proudly shows me what she has learned after the lessons are over.  Mariah has a way of encouraging her that makes so much difference in her willingness to keep trying things that are harder.  What a blessing she is and how grateful that we are to have her.

“It is a great fit. My girls love Mariah! Because they connected so well during their voice lessons, we asked her to teach them both piano as well!”

[My daughter] volunteered to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” in front of 26 guests for Thanksgiving and she sang it beautifully! Everyone was so happy that she wanted to do it and said that the lessons are really paying off.

I liked William and related to him nicely.  Being older, he did not make me feel uncomfortable and seemed very conscientious.  I enjoy lessons and look forward to practicing and my next lesson. Thank You!

William is a very patient and encouraging teacher. He speaks to [my son] in a very positive manner, and incorporates [his] interest in each lesson.

My son has performed in one CMS free recital and is getting ready to play in another one–his progress was so warmly encouraged and nurtured by the teacher, I started to take lessons, too! We are having a blast, and my son even had a leg up on music when he started band in middle school (if you ask them about the family discount, they will help you out). They do lessons for all instruments.We are thrilled with the results. Five stars!
