Cheryl Hall

Serving both Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.

Private Piano Lessons in the convenience of your Los Angeles home or my Montecito studio at the Music Academy of the West.

Working with beginning and intermediate children and adults.

Over 25 years of teaching experience.





My goal in teaching is to introduce the world of music through a positive, loving, and fun first experience. I want my students to enjoy making music for themselves and to share their excitement with family and friends.

We explore a wide range of music experiences together, including:

  • A classical approach to music with the opportunity to learn favorite jazz and pop pieces, as well as music from the American Songbook

  • Music and theory learned on the computer in a fun and engaging way

  • A focus on music of the holiday season culminating in a December performance

  • A participation in workshops and a June recital

  • Summer instruction with “music camp” — extended sessions to include learning games, puzzles, and competitive activities
