Read his Teaching philosophy

Biographical Highlights

Mr. Fernandez holds a Master's degree in Piano Pedagogy (piano teaching) from San Diego State University. He is a skilled performer, composer and teacher. His training includes prestigious European conservatories and first‑class American universities, from which he has synthesized a wide variety of musical and pedagogical influences. This training allows Mr. Fernandez to reach students on many different levels, and to provide a multi‑faceted approach to their music education.

“I love teaching piano! With over twenty‑five years of teaching experience, I am thrilled as ever to share my passion for music and piano playing with everyone.”


Teaching philosophy

Educating well-rounded musicians is at the core of Mr. Fernandez's teaching philosophy. His piano lessons incorporate every style of music, theory, history, physics of sound, and other subjects to provide an engaging learning environment where students can draw connections and build new understandings. The music that students learn to play is a vehicle to discover concepts and techniques that can be applied to other songs. The goal is to empower students with the skills to one day become independent musicians.
