Since 2004, Van Tuyl Music Academy is Huntington Beach’s original school of rock, classical pop, blues, jazz and live performance for piano. Whether you have a child that wants to learn the piano or you’re looking for yourself, Van Tuyl Music Academy is the place for you. Our seasoned, professional piano instructors have experience with students of all ages and ability levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced.
VTMA is more than a music factory for piano lessons, we’re an immersive, one-of-a-kind school that teaches you how to truly understand and connect with the piano in a way you’ve never thought possible. Our instructors go beyond the notes on the page, focusing on understanding music theory, rhythm, sight reading, chord knowledge and technique. Modern piano and keyboard isn’t just learning how to play favorite songs on the piano, it’s understanding what makes the song and the part something a listener will never forget.
