From your first lessons this innovative system teaches you to play a huge variety of music including classical, blues, jazz, and contemporary while incorporating composing, improvising, arranging, and playing accompaniment. All of this is done through the lens of Simply Music’s unique ‘playing-based’ approach which results in understanding and reading music in a revolutionary way.

Welcome to my studio for Sacramento Piano and Flute Lessons! My name is Jeremiah I’ve been teaching music for 18 years. I am a Licensed Simply Music Piano Teacher and enjoy teaching beginning piano students of all ages. I teach at the Pease Conservatory of Music in Midtown Sacramento. I offer dynamic shared classes for piano and individual lessons for flute. I invite you to check out my “About” page using the link above to find out more about my fees, policies, and services.

I hold degrees from The Juillard School and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in Flute Performance. I

also studied piano while at these schools. As a flutist I have performed as a soloist with the Sacramento Philharmonic, the Sacramento Bach Festival, the Diablo Symphony, the California Wind Orchestra and the Grass Valley Early Music Society. I toured and recorded with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas.


Simply Music Piano:

Simply Music is an Australian-developed piano learning method and an exciting breakthrough in music education. Students are immersed in the act of playing pieces from their first lessons with both hands. In the same way that we learn to talk before we learn to read or write, Simply Music temporarily delays music reading and introduces a ‘playing-based’ methodology. This natural approach to learning music introduces students to an array of unique concepts that unfold directly onto the keyboard. Simply Music Piano temporarily delays the music-reading process, focusing instead on developing a ‘hands-on’ relationship with the instrument and building playing skills through learning and playing a huge range of great-sounding pieces.  Typically after a year of lessons, when the student has built a substantial repertoire of 35-50 pieces, music reading begins to be added to his skill set.

Simply Music Piano is very effectively delivered in the shared lesson format.  Lessons vary from 30 to 60 minutes and range from two to six students matched according to their age and skill level.  In certain circumstances I also teach 30-minute individual lessons.

In addition to weekly lessons, I also offer my students log-in access to my website, where they have access to various educational features such as the exciting Media Hub, which contains resource materials, music, and more.

I hope to hear from you. If you would like to find out more, fill out the form on the “Contact” page, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks for visiting!
