    Piano / Keyboard / Accordion Lessons by Paul Burd
    Music Teacher, Performer, Composer, and Recording Artist
    Member of the Music Teachers' Association of California.

    My name is Paul Burd.
    I'm a Professional Musician and Music Teacher.
    My "serious" musical career started when I turned 7. I saw some movie in which the main character had a passion for music, and wanted to become a famous musician. I experienced the same feeling. So, I took a wooden board, hammered in five pins on each side of it, stretched rubber bands on each opposite pair of them, painted it, "tuned the strings", and started playing this self-made guitar / banjo instrument. I sang songs to its accompaniment, which was real fun for my adult folks and neighbors.

    Later on, due to hard work my dreams came true, and I became an expert in the world of music. I played and made recordings with different bands as a keyboard and synthesizer player and I have combined all this experience with my classical education and created my own method of teaching people of various age groups to play the piano and keyboard, tailoring their musical interests and needs to their potential achievements. My desire is to provide them with "tools" to make music accessible for anyone who wants to enjoy the playing and creating music for themselves. And what is more, it gives me particular pleasure, when my students make progress and feel happy.

    My Teaching Background

    I have been teaching music for over 25 years: Piano, Keyboard and Accordion. I am classically educated and trained instructor with a College degree in teaching music to children and adults and I also have a lot of experience in recording and arranging music in different genre(s): pop, jazz, blues and rock. I love seeing students succeed and I have developed teaching strategies and methodologies that simplify many of the learning processes.

    My Teaching Philosophy

    I combine my experience as a classical musician with my expertise as a band performer, recording artist and composer to create my own method of teaching people of various age groups to play the piano and keyboard, tailoring musical interests and needs to achieve their potential.
