John Douglas, Rancho Piano, is both an excellent piano teacher and tuner.  He has taught both of my children for over 10 years.  We have no desire to change teachers.  He teaches all the aspects needed–theory, technic, piano, performance, and memorizing notes,  He treats his students like they are his own.  He loves teaching the piano and his enthusiasm is infectious.  I would highly recommend John with your children and piano

I can’t adequately express how much Mr. Douglas gave me. He was my one and only piano teacher from age 6 to 18. His guidance gave me the skills necessary to attend the Orange County High School of the Arts in the piano department, and he loved me and my brother (also a student of his) like we were his own kids. He worked with us at our skill level, he pushed us to try things outside of our comfort zone musically, and he instilled in us a love of music that I still have (I am now 27). I am forever grateful that I had such an amazing music teacher.

If you are looking for a piano teacher for your child, John Douglas is the one. We have twin daughters that received lessons from him for over 12 years. Over the course of that time our girls developed outstanding piano skills that are now serving them very well in their college and social life. Additionally, because of this phenomenal training our girls have received, they were able to branch off into the cello and viola and begin playing in the local youth symphony, Bravura Youth Symphony Orchestra, in a very short time. They are now both in their college orchestra and having a great time. The training they received from Mr. Douglas gave them such a strong foundation that transitioning to other instruments was almost effortless. Mr. Douglas is all about excellence. He will not waste your time or money. We have been there during competitions and have seen the encouraging support he and his wife give his students. If you are serious about your child becoming an accomplished pianist, than do yourself a favor and contact John Douglas.

Mr. Douglas is a great no-nonsense, but fun-loving, kind-hearted piano Master, from tuning pianos to unending piano knowledge, and his passion for piano bleeds into the hearts of my 2 children, who have been taking lessons from him for over 4 years now. If you are serious about wanting your child to grow musically through hard work, while having fun learning a beautiful instrument, the Curwood family highly recommends his talents to your family, Menifee, CA.

My daughter took piano lessons from John Douglas for 12+ years, including summers between college (her choice).  Judging from the experiences of others whose children took lessons and then never played again once the lessons stopped, my daughter has a love for playing to this day.

John’s background is in classical piano.  As he explained when my daughter was young and not too keen on playing Bach and Beethoven on a regular basis (he did break it up a bit), training a student classically develops their ability to pick up and play just about any genre of music eventually.

John is a wonderful instructor and I wish every child could grow up learning piano from him.  Our experience has enhanced my own love for and appreciation of music, not just our daughter’s. I thank John Douglas for that.
We shipped her the piano that John restored and sold to us at the time our daughter began lessons.  It was our college graduation gift to her.
