Christina is the best. She was prompt, personal and inspired my 10-year old to stretch herself … the lessons were a welcome highlight with Christina. Her recitals were well planned, and she makes as big of a fuss about the beginners as she did the more advanced students. Genuinely kind and committed - Lisa

Highly Individualized Lessons

If you're looking for cookie cutter piano lessons in Long Beach or Lakewood, look elsewhere! In my studio, your experience is tailored to your exact needs. Students ages 4+ are accepted in my studio, and I am comfortable teaching students with special needs.

A Consistent, Reliable Schedule

Your piano lesson is an appointment reserved on the same day and at the same time every week. Your only job is to show up at the correct time every week, equipped with your piano books and a "ready to learn" positive attitude!

Practice Makes Progress

A lot of the real work happens at home when you are practicing! Kids and adults alike are encouraged throughout their piano lessons to make goals, take initiative, and practice daily on their own.

Get Up On Stage At Recitals & Concerts

We have our recitals and concerts at various venues across Long Beach throughout the school year. Performance is never required; all students enrolled in our program are highly encouraged to participate!

We Play Music Games

I have all sorts of tricks up my sleeve to make learning music fun! Sometimes, we play board or card games, and other times we improv at the piano. All students are granted access to an educational iPad game called Piano Maestro.

Easy Flat Rate Tuition - Everything Is Included!
