Rosetree Piano Studio

Miss Tahnia has been teaching piano full-time for over 25 years and truly enjoys helping her students to find joy in their music. While she has had many award winners and students preparing for college music degrees in her studio, she feels that the most important goal is to make sure that students love music and find self-expression in playing the piano.

Private lessons are available at her studio for students from beginning to advanced who range from age three through senior citizens, using both traditional reading methods and the Suzuki Piano Method. While her main focus is classical music, the students may choose to add other genres such as jazz or pop.

What is included in the lessons?

A well-rounded musical education helps students define what music means to them. Miss Lund's goal is to cover all areas of musicianship: performance, technique, theory, sight-reading, ear-training, formal analysis, harmony, music history and a comprehensive study of music literature. Her teaching includes an ergonomically correct technique for effortless performance.

Demonstrating her eclectic approach to piano, graduates from her studio have chosen many different paths, including classical and jazz performance, composition, music education, music technology and pop/rock composition and performance.

Parents appreciate Miss Lund's methods of inspiration and motivation:

  • Students are assigned a wide variety of music, from classical to modern, jazz and pop.
  • The students are given a weekly computer generated and long goals are set so that the students feel accomplishment at the piano.
  • Trophies are awarded to students who master set goals within the curriculum.
  • The Music Teachers' Association of California's Certificate of Merit Program (standardized music skills tests) and the similar California Association of Professional Music Teachers’ Evaluations are available to mid- and upper level students.
  • There are regular opportunities for students to take part in various recitals, evaluations and competitions given by the MTAC, MTNA, CAPMT, TVMTA (see below for what the initials mean), and National Piano Guild. Her students receive top honors and high evaluation scores in the many events held by these organizations, as well as in the Southern California Jr. Bach Festival and the Inland Empire Piano Festival.

Teacher Education and Qualifications:

Miss Lund received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music at Chapman University and her Master of Arts Degree (abt) in Piano Pedagogy and Musicology at CSU San Jose. As an adult, her piano instructors have included Dr. Georgia Nicklett (instructor and performing artist from CSU Fresno, a student of technique specialist, Abby Whiteside), Laurell Huber of the MTAC Fresno Branch (piano and organ), Miss Aiko Onishi (Professor and performing artist at CSU San Jose, a student of Tobias Matthay and Edwin Fischer) and Fernando Valenti (harpsichordist/performing artist, student of Jose Iturbi and Ralph Kirkpatrick, teacher of Igor Kipnes). Her studies have given her a thorough understanding of the proper technical approach to the piano to allow for a beautiful tone without stress to the body.

An active member of the Music Teachers' Association of California for over thirty-five years, she is currently President of the MTAC Temecula Branch. She has been an Evaluator for the MTAC Certificate of Merit Program. Miss Lund is also a member of the National Guild of Piano Teachers, the Music Teachers' National Association, the California Association of Professional Music Teachers and the Temecula Valley Music Teachers' Association.
