Hi, I live in the san fernando valley (CA) near Northridge. Could you please provide some referrals for good piano teachers in my area? I mostly play classical but also like pop. Thanks!

Unfortunately, your request is a near impossibility for most of us to help you with. You live in a major metropolitan area with likely thousands of teachers, many hundred of which are well above average. Your best bet would probably be to head for the local music store, that is, the one which sells classical music, and ask about teachers. Go on line and look for MTAC and MTNA and search for teachers listings. Do an on-line search for piano teachers in Northridge. Ask the music teachers at your local elementary and middle schools.

BTW, the teacher who taught Sean Chen, 3rd place winner in the Van Cliburn this year, lives just west of you in Oak Park.

Thanks John, but I am not sure I agree with your answer. What I am asking for is a few referrals based on your (forum members) experiences. Not sure I see the difference between asking to the local piano store and asking in this forum. Would you mind telling me the name of Sean Chen's teacher? That would be a good start.

Re-thanks,

P.

Sorry that doesn't help. I can give you names for a radius of 50 miles or so here in Washington, based more on reputation than anything else, but you'd have to ask a teacher in your immediate area for the kind of detailed information you are apparently seeking. Mr. Chen's teacher's name escapes me at the moment. I just happened to remember that he's from your extended neighborhood.

Sean Chen studied with Ed Francis.

Send me a private message if you want more names referred. I know quite a few teachers in that area.
