Thompson Music Studio




Piano lessons for music students in Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley, Brentwood, Byron: the Delta region of California.

Lessons take place at the Thompson residence on a six-foot Yamaha grand piano, or on a six-foot Steinway grand piano.

Lessons are one on one, allowing adequate attention for each individual student's particular strengths and weaknesses.

Five-week months sometimes include workshops, where students engage in additional music-oriented activities, such as games, videos, and composition workshops.

Students perform in studio recitals twice each year, once in the Spring, and once in the Fall.

As members of the Delta Branch of the Music Teachers' Association of California, Eric and Catherine are able to offer additional benefits to their students, such as monthly opportunities to perform in the large recital hall at Los Medanos College, where students share their talents with other students, parents, and teachers of numerous other studios belonging to the branch. The MTAC also provides a standardized achievement program, Certificate of Merit, which, if opted in to, provides training and testing annually for music theory, ear training, technique (scales, arpeggios, chords, etc.), and performance of level-scaled repertoire. Many other benefits are available. Please visit the branch and state sites for more information:
