California Music Studios will connect you with a teacher for in-home or studio piano lessons for kids and adults of all ages in Southern California. Students may be beginners, intermediate, or advanced. Learn to play piano and have fun while you’re at it. Whether you want to learn classical, jazz, pop, or blues, we can find piano teachers who suit your needs and preferences.
- What age should my child start piano?
- I am an adult with no music experience, is it too late for piano lessons?
- I only have a keyboard. Is this okay?
Piano lessons for kids can start as young as age 4. Piano is the best instrument for any student to start with as piano lays the basic foundation of music. If you are skilled at the piano, it is a lot easier to learn other instruments. In fact, all music majors in college must pass courses in piano before they can graduate. Piano lessons in Orange County can lead to a heightened interest in other instruments and musical genres. We highly recommend that students begin their musical studies with the piano.
It is never too late to learn to play the piano, and we are more than happy to help you on your journey. We find more and more adults enrolling every day. Whether it’s for relaxation, personal enjoyment, or a specific goal in mind, learning piano is a rewarding experience for students of all ages. While it can be more difficult for adults to learn, the benefits outweigh the obstacles. We work with the best piano teachers in the area to ensure that learning is fun, active, and hassle-free. Can adults learn how to play piano? Absolutely!
California Music Studios refers you to independently established instructors who love giving piano lessons in San Diego, Orange County, and the greater Southern California area. Feel confident and excited to learn how to play piano, keyboard, or organ. Teachers use refined techniques to make learning easier.
Learning to play on a keyboard is perfectly fine for beginning students. Initially, you don’t use all the keys, and children are generally too short to reach the pedals to start. As you progress, you want to select a piano or full-size keyboard, preferably with “weighted keys” to better emulate the feel of a real piano. Don’t hesitate to take piano lessons in Los Angeles because of the cost of the instrument. There are ways to get around it, and you can always find a used piano at a reasonable cost. You can also rent a piano at around $30 per month.
Unlike a traditional piano, an electronic keyboard is always in tune. Students are more likely to practice if they can do so in any room of the home. If you can’t have a piano, don’t feel bad about being stuck with a keyboard. Depending upon the type of music you wish to play, an electric keyboard might be more suited for its versatility. An electric keyboard is portable and readily integrates with other music gear. Here is an example of a gentleman in Europe who is quite adept in his small studio. Note the use of keyboards at the beginning and end of his performance:
