What do my students and their families say about my teaching style?


My passion is to foster a life-long love of music and to create an environment where learning piano is engaging and fun!

All classes are taught by me, Linda Bernardi, a certified Simply Music piano teacher.   I’m a classically trained musician, who has been playing piano since the age of five.  I was raised in a musical household, where my mother taught piano lessons in our home every day after school.

However, I wasn’t drawn in by my traditional music education.  When I began looking for a way to teach my own son to play the piano, I discovered the Simply Music Piano method, and I immediately realized that THIS was how piano should be taught!  I watched my son blossom as a musician and realized I wanted it to share this magical method with our community.

If you’d like to learn more about the engaging Simply Music method, please read more about it here… “Simply Music Piano for Children, Teens and Adults“.   Simply Music is a wonderful method for anyone, children ages seven and up, teens, and adults, who’d like to learn piano with a hands-on, modern, creativity-based approached.

For younger children, I believe child’s first introduction to the piano should be playful, fun, and developmentally appropriate!   I’m trained in Inner Musician’s creative Play-a-Story method and  KiddyKeys® playful preschool program.  For more information about my classes for young children (Preschool and Kindergarten-age), head here… Piano for Young Children.

My piano studio is located in Dublin, California, near the 580/680 interchange, convenient to families throughout the Tri-Valley area.

I also offer live online piano lessons and classes!  This is a great option for those of you who live further away.
