We at Little Chopin, believe in the piano’s endless potential for every child. Whether it’s to boost their creativity, help them relieve stress, or charm members of the opposite gender, our pianists are self-motivated, develop excellent musicianship, and know how to have fun!

For over twenty years in Orange County, our team of professional piano teachers have prepared dozens of students every year for district, national, and international competitions. Our students become certified to state-wide standards of piano performance through the Certificate of Merit and National Guild Auditions.

Our very own Concert Hall hosts monthly piano evaluations, holiday themed and genre inspired recitals (like Christmas or Asian Composers), that helps our students to excel on stage and have fun for all their family and friends to see.

Feel free to visit us at our studio during opening hours and talk to us. You may call us at (714) 636-0836 or e-mail us at info@littlechopin.com. We look forward to meeting you!

I’m sure you’ve all noticed our fantastic Theory Supervisor by now, but his introduction is long overdue.
We at Little Chopin would like to give a warm welcome to our newest Theory Supervisor, Matt Smith!
