Our Approach to Piano Lessons
Piano lessons are offered on a one-on-one basis with our highly qualified teachers and also through our group and pairs lessons. During private music lessons, the student will develop a plan for individual learning with their teachers.
Each teacher will work with the students to come up with repertoire suitable for their optimum learning. Some students excel at classical learning, studying the masters from all time periods of music (Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, etc.). Other students wish to integrate elements of pop music, church music, jazz music, or all of the above!
Piano Lessons Should Be Fun!
We know that an interest in piano may be what first brings you into our school – but having fun is what keeps you coming back! Here at Kidz Create Music, our goal is for every student to LOVE their music lessons as they embark on a rewarding journey of progress and discovery. We put the “fun” in fundamentals!
Our knowledgeable staff blends a high standard of music education with a creative, student-focused approach that gives students space to discover and nurture their passion for music and the piano. Whether it’s your first time at the keys or you’re a seasoned pianist, our teachers are ready to help you progress quickly toward your goals – while having fun along the way.
We Emphasize Healthy Technique
Healthy technique is critical to lifelong enjoyment of the piano. Our first priority is teaching strong fundamentals, including hand, wrist and arm technique, bench position, and pedaling. We believe that full-body instruction is essential to musicianship and safeguards students from injury.
Once the fundamentals are in place, you and your teacher can craft the story you want your music to tell. Our qualified teachers will assist you in developing musicianship and exploring nuance through dynamics, pausing, phrasing, and varying tempos. Learn with us as we infuse elements of music theory and music history into our well-rounded approach to fostering musical excellence.
We Care About Your Musical Interests & Goals
There is no one-size-fits-all method of piano instruction. Regardless of ability or prior experience, our teachers take an individualized approach to each of our students – underpinned by detailed individual assessments, a personalized learning plan, and one-on-one guidance throughout your musical journey.
While fundamentals and technique are essential, our ultimate goal is to equip students to begin exploring their own personal musical style and interests. Your teacher will work with you to understand where you want to go, and craft a unique plan to get you there. Whether your style is classical or pop (or anything in between), Kidz Create Music helps students excel in their craft while encouraging the occasional step outside the comfort zone to try something new.
Students will learn music reading, performance skills, improvisation skills, and theory skills.
We work individually with each family to understand their child’s musical needs. Our philosophy is that each child’s musical tastes and aptitudes are unique

What’s a good age to begin piano lessons?
We offer in-home lessons to children and adults in Los Angeles and surrounding cities. The piano is a wonderful versatile instrument that can bring joy through a lifetime a learning.
Certain aspects of piano technique, such as interval reach, can be physically challenging to a young child. At the same time, there are plenty of basics to learn before large interval reach is necessary.
At Kidz Create Music, we suggest beginning instruction no younger than age four. Have no fear: beginning at this young age will give your child plenty of time to progress in their keyboarding skills.
So, if you have the desire to learn, we have the desire to teach you—no matter your age.

Praise for Kidz Create Music
Alexandria has been teaching my three children piano for three years now. She has instilled such a love of music in them. They look forward to lessons every week. Practice and theory assignments are varied and never tedious. I love that my kids joyfully approach the piano without being asked and I directly relate their enthusiasm to the quality instruction they have received through Kidz Create Music.Emily C.
As an adult student, I can’t ask for a better teacher: patient, flexible, encouraging, and a strong technical instructor. My progress has exceeded peers who started at the same time. Highly recommended.Dave B.
This is our 5th year of enjoying lessons with Kidz Create Music. My two daughters have developed a true love of music under the guidance of their wonderful piano teachers. They have motivated my daughters with their encouragement, engaging personality, warmth and positive approach. We are happy we found this school and grateful that our house is filled with beautiful music!Kim L.
Kidz Create Music is a wonderful music program for anyone who wants to learn how to play piano. Alexandria and her staff are all incredible people, and make the process fun and engaging. I highly recommend giving them a shot, whether the lessons are for your kids, or for you as an adult. It’s never too late to start lessons!Jeff Bauer, Keyboard Concepts
My family and I used this music school for a year and a half and the kids really enjoyed the teachers we had for piano and voice lessons (singing). Both teachers Dante and Michael were very patient and great teachers that inspired both our kids in the world of music. We often found our kids playing the piano on their own, not because we asked them, but because they enjoyed music. The teachers were punctual and followed the curriculum of the school. We also enjoyed the recitals planned by the school.Rex H.
“Hi Alexandria. My husband, Andy and I wanted to let you know how much my kids are enjoying their lessons with Sophie. She is sweet, patient and encouraging. She worked with Teddy on her voice audition for, ‘Frozen’ and Teddy ended up getting cast as ‘Elsa’. Teddy is so excited and was so appreciative to Sophie for all her work and support.”Alana U.
