Aviara is the twin sister of La Costa. Much of Aviara is tucked away in Gated Communities and hidden neighborhoods but if you know where to look, you’ll find some of North County’s most precious places. The community runs along the north side of the Batiquitos Lagoon where you can visit a stunning, lesser known, nature trail. Not too many know about this trail because it can only be accessed via Batiquitos Dr which is a nondescript offshoot of the main Aviara artery (Aviara Pkwy). Another stunning gem along the lagoon is of course the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Course, and Spa. It hosts one of the finest golf courses in the world and a phenomenal steakhouse called the Argyle (get extra puffed bread, it’s so good!). On the northern border of Aviara you have Legoland, The Carlsbad Flower Fields, and K1 Speed - Indoor Go Karts… but best of all, the Museum of Making Music. The Museum of Making Music is located at NAMM’s headquarters right above the flower fields, with a beautiful view of the ocean. See The Beatles’ original drum set and many other history making making instruments first hand!
I started playing the piano when I was 4 years old and continued through college (classically-trained). I am now in my 40's and have always wanted to learn jazz piano so I am starting from scratch. I've been taking lessons with JP for five months now and I couldn't be happier. I had my doubts taking classes virtually, but it has been a great experience. JP is very patient, and his technical explanation and technique is very easy to understand. I'm so happy with how far I've come and look forward to my lesson weekly!
Looking for music lessons near you? We offer in-home and online lessons to families in Bressi Ranch! Our piano lessons, voice lessons, and digital music lessons are the best in North County San Diego!
Our piano lessons, voice lessons, and digital music lessons follow a first principles approach to learning music. This approach allows for faster learning, better understanding, and longer retention by focusing on foundational truths instead of rote memorization. Our ultimate goal is provide a learning journey for our students which allows them to master their instrument in as little as two years. Time frames will vary depending on age, commitment level, and musical propensities, but most students can expect to realize about 80% of their musical potential in 2-3 years. Similar results tend to take between 8-10 years with traditional lessons.
Traditional Method: "Play the C Major scale in the right hand with fingers 1,2, and 3 and then tuck your thumb under and play 1,2,3,4,5. For your left hand, play 5,4,3,2,1 and then cross your middle finger over and play 3,2,1. Now, for B Major play the same fingers in the right hand but play 4,3,2,1 and then 4,3,2,1 again in the left hand. For Ab Major, play 2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3 in the right hand and 3,2,1,4,3,2,1 in the left hand. Memorize the different fingerings for all 12 major scales and then memorize the different fingerings for all 12 minor scales."
First Principles Method: "Every scale has 7 notes in it. The best way to play 7 notes is by playing groups of 3 fingers followed by groups of 4 fingers or visa versa. 3+4 always equals 7! Now let's find the most comfortable place to fit those finger groupings into each scale". See how much easier that is? Now that you understand the foundational principle behind playing major and minor scales it's much easier to decipher the details.
