Welcome

Ella Piano Studio in Sunnyvale, CA.

My name is Ella Veldghorn, I am an accredited piano teacher pleased to instruct anyone who wishes to learn.
Music is an indispensable part of life, necessary for proper development and growth in both children and adults. We are so constantly surrounded and immersed in music that it is necessary to become a part of it, whether one is creating his own magnum opus or playing along with the masterpiece of another.


TEACHING:
  • Piano lessons, private instruction. Beginning to advanced.
  • I also teach music theory.
  • Many of my students have successfully passed The Certificate of Merit Test (CM Test) and performed in MTAC Branch Honors Recitals, MTAC State Conventions, and won prizes in local competitions.
  • I'm a member of American College of Musicians (National Guild).
  • And my students are successfully passing Tests of all levels including Diploma of Social Music, Diploma of High School Music, etc.

PRIVATE LESSONS
Private lessons ensure that the student has the undivided attention of the teacher and can progress at a level suited to them individually. Students can start private lessons as soon as they turn six at any time of the year. A variety of styles are taught such as classical, pop, rock, and jazz. Contact me to see which times and dates are available.

EXAM PREPARATION
I offer full training in repertoire, studies, technique, ear training and sight reading to prepare classical students for various exams.
If students wish they may take
The Certificate of Merit Test (CM Test) for certain grades in instrument offered by the Music Teachers Association of California. The results (successfully passed levels 9 & 10) of CM Test are accepted as high school credit by numerous California's High Schools. Some of our students choose to learn their instrument recreationally and do not take exams. However, most of the students take an exam and I can fully prepare them for any level of testing. I have helped all of our students who took exams to pass them successfully.

RECITALS AND CONCERTS
Recitals and concerts are held at least twice a year. These provide students with performance experience and build confidence. Participation in music festivals, competitions and workshops is also available. The whole family and friends can enjoy the performances.
