  • Our philosophy is to provide the best quality education to students by teaching music as an artistic practice.

    • Music is a language

      We believe that students should learn a musical instrument just like they learn language, math, and science. Learning music nurtures and develops their patience for working and improving at any subject.

    • Performance-based

      We believe that performance on stage greatly boosts confidence, intrinsic motivation, self-realization, and personally rewards students.

    • Communication

      Just as we teach our students to communicate and share music, we connect with parents to keep them informed

    • Creativity

      As a music school we are always looking to creatively improve at everything we do

    • Passion

      As teachers and musicians we are very devoted to developing children and musical talent

  • Our Classes

  • Learning music is a journey full of challenges and self-discovery. At Pacific Piano School, we’ve designed classes to help students and parents succeed at every level. Classes and instructors personalize learning to the student to ensure proper development. Find a class that fits with you are your child’s educational goals.

    • First of all, please allow me to express my profound admiration for everything you and your teachers at Pacific Piano School do for our kids. I am truly impressed with this school and thrilled that my daughter is part of it.

    • It appears to us that after studying with you on the master class, Claudia seems to absorb some of the coaching that you gave her. We notice she plays with more feeling. Strong notes when they are supposed to be strong and soft when the music phrase is supposed to be soft.

    • My playing is steadily becoming more expressive and emotive, and performing has become less of a chore.

    • I will highly recommend PPS to whoever I know and I hope that your studio will continue to grow in the future!

    • We don’t expect our kids to make a career out of music. However, this training is so important for their lives as you know. I want to thank you for your dedication in classical music education.

      Ellie N.
