Piano Lessons

Introduction to Music and Piano Skills for the Young Ones

I also offer piano lessons for young students. For those who may be eager to start guitar but are in need of one last growth spurt, piano lessons offer a great introduction to music without the prerequisite finger strength and hand size that comes with guitar.  Students who wish to focus solely on piano are welcome as well; as are students who are interested in combo guitar/piano lesson packs.

Piano lessons are incredibly rewarding for young students, with a good deal of instant gratification — the buttons are color coded and all you have to do is push them down to make sound!

The piano is the most immediately accessible instrument and early piano lessons lay a firm ground work for all musical studies to come; be them on guitar, piano or any other instrument.

If you aren’t sure if your child is old enough for guitar and should start piano, or you have a student interested in beginning piano don’t hesitate to contact me: lessons@wbaileymusic.com



From my Philosophy on Lessons section:

“My approach to teaching is both student and goal oriented. I allow the interests of my students to guide their lessons as I push them to achieve their goals. I do this while providing them with a solid foundation of theory, musicianship, repertoire and practice techniques which equip them to grow into the capable musician that they wish to become.

When I give lessons, it is not my goal to teach a single style or even the guitar as a single instrument. I strive to teach music as a living, breathing language both aural and written.  I teach my students a broad, fundamental understanding of music as a language and I teach them to use the guitar and its various styles as a vehicle to command it.”

I Specialize in teaching all ages and have had beginning students as young as 5 and my eldest being 68. Its never to late…or early to start!

More Information About Lessons

Lessons typically occur once per week and take place at my home in Sherman Oaks. Lessons are $70 for an hour and $40 for a half hour. Scholarship rates are available for exceptional students who need a break and can come during off (non-prime) hours. Flexible options such as one lesson per every two weeks can be worked out. Skype lessons are available and I do make house calls (Lessons in your home) for an additional fee.

The first introductory lesson given is always free of charge and I have a money back guarantee on your first month of lessons. I can proudly say that this policy has never once been invoked.

I also offer (free) services to assist current and prospective students (and their parents) to learn about and find a suitable instrument to start with.

Solo performances and group recitals are organized with local venues and other local music teachers as a part of the lesson package. Sometimes a small fee is required of participants to cover facility rental fees for group recitals. Students are strongly encouraged to participate.

Group lessons specifically designed to facilitate ensemble playing among my students are an option as well. These generally occur with current rather than prospective students and take place at the discretion of me, the student and parent. They can occur in addition to or in lieu of regular weekly lessons.

Please contact me at Lessons@wbaileymusic.com to schedule your first lesson.
