Rancho Piano Lessons Murrieta, Ca and Temecula

murrieta caJohn Douglas began his musical journey at the age of 5 in Altadena, Ca. receiving piano lessons from college student Winston Swift.

Winston instilled the love of music in John at an early age and even composed special pieces, mostly in boogie woogie style.  This inspired John to practice more!  The first piano teacher is the most important teacher they will have!  Good early training will give students a solid foundation on which to build as they progress.

Moving to Tustin in Orange county at the age of 10, John was fortunate to be accepted to receive piano lessons from Elaine Dysart of Santa Ana in 1966.  This would be John’s most influential teacher. At her passing in 2011 John was privileged to be asked by Mrs. Dysart’s family to provide classical piano music at her funeral service, playing many of the pieces she had given him as a student.

At age 13 he added a new instrument – the Pipe organ.  He received instruction from his church organist and much respected teacher Esther Jones.  John was hired as Church organist at the Church of the Foothills 4 years later.  In 1978 he became the organist for The First Advent Christian Church of Tustin.  He still serves these two churches today.

John has been giving private piano lessons since the age of 13.  This is the area of his work that he enjoys the most. He doesn’t think of it so much as work but as an opportunity to share the knowledge his esteemed teachers gave him. John truly loves his work!

In 1977 John started training with piano technician Eugene Brown, as his apprentice, learning all aspects of piano tuning and repair.
