"If you want to really learn to play the piano, and I mean really play beautifully, then this is the piano instruction that will get you there. Not your typical piano instructors that just teach you to hammer away on the keys. The instruction is excellent. You learn proper technique....dynamics, phrasing, fingering, etc. in a an enjoyable manner rather then stiff, static, and boring practice techniques. You are able to pick pieces you truly want to play with input as to those pieces that will allow your skills to progress. Whether you are a just wanting to learn to play a few songs or are planning on becoming a professional pianist, the instructors will help you reach your goals. The teachers at San Diego Piano Academy are highly trained professionals who have put considerable effort into developing techniques, practice skills, and tailoring lessons to the individual. They excel in efficient practice techniques for rapid improvement rather then inefficient practice that wastes valuable time and slows your progress to a crawl. They are friendly and patient and only ask that you make an effort to learn. Melissa is my teacher and I have been able to progress far faster then I thought possible. My previous music lessons have frankly paled in comparison." - Howard W.
