Private Music Lessons

Piano • Voice • Flutes • Percussion

All Ages • All Levels • All Styles

"Education in music is most sovereign, because more than anything else rhythm and harmony find their way to the inmost soul and take strongest hold upon it, bringing with them and imparting grace, if one is rightly trained." — Plato

Peter Sterbach
has been teaching piano, voice, flutes, and percussion for 30 years. Thousands of students of all ages and levels have come to him to learn everything from traditional classical music to contemporary and ethnic styles.

Peter's comfortable "Bach to Rock" studio, conveniently located in Santa Cruz, provides a seven-foot Yamaha grand piano, various hand drums and over three dozen flutes, a waiting room with a practice keyboard and even a fenced-in play area for children.

Due to his unique approach, he has been called "The Zen Master of piano instruction."
