Give your child the benefit of a music education.

Learning to play an instrument helps children (and adults) by boosting confidence, improving cognitive skills, enhancing mood, and even helping develop long-term speech sound recognition.

These are all in addition to the obvious benefit of acquiring or mastering a musical skill.

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…

“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!

As a parent, I wanted to make sure that my kids learned how to play the piano, but more importantly, I wanted to make sure they developed a love of music and thought of music as something fun–not drudgery (I know, I had issues about my past experiences with piano lessons!) The individual teachers really…

My daughter studies piano with Eric LeVan, a world-class pianist.  She could barely play anything when she first met him and now is playing many classical pieces.  She has excelled quickly under his instruction.  I strongly recommend California Music Studios, and more specifically Eric LeVan.
