Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, GAA's dedicated piano instructors are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months.
Our piano teachers are warm and friendly, and get to know each student and parent on a personal level. When you enroll at the Academy, we'll begin with an evaluation to determine initially what your strengths and challenges are. We work with each individual or parent to craft a lesson plan that fits the student's unique needs and favorite type of music. Whether you're playing in local bands, a seven year old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to the piano after many years, our teachers will share their love for the piano and help you set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.
We teach all styles, from rock, pop and jazz to country, blues and classical.
Our piano faculty have received their education from prestigious institutions such as University of California at Berkeley, Berklee College of Music, Music For The Media, and University of California at Los Angeles. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience.

In addition, students can learn improvisation, which is the skill where you just sit down and make it up as you go along!
