About Me

I have been a piano teacher for many years. I can speak fluently English, Spanish and Italian. I am presently a member of the Music Teacher Association of California, and you can contact any of the teachers in the California Contra Costa Branch to obtain information about me. I am very flexible regarding student repertoire. Most of the time my students select the piece they wish to play. I firmly believe the piano instruction has to be fun. The student must enjoy the piece she or he is learning. Every year I offer a Christmas party to all the students, Santa Claus comes, we have a pot-luck and all the parents and students enjoy it a lot!! I have all ages from 7 to 18 or 19 in either High school or College. I also teach adults.
So come and try it out and I promise lots of fun!!!!

My Musical Education Background

Bachelor of Arts from the Philadelphia Musical Academy originally the Philadelphia Conservatory.

Proceeded with extensive piano study in Rome Italy under teachers like Carlo Zecchi and Renata Borghatti.

MA from the California State University in Hayward.

Member of the Music Teachers' Association of California since 1974.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I was trained in the classical genre. I have students that have played very well works by Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms. At the last Christmas party one of my advanced students played the Chopin revolutionary etude and her sister was ready to play Chopin's Fantasy Impromptu and the Flight of the Bumble-bee, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninoff. Other students prefer other types of music. To give an example: an 11 year old decided to play "feelings" and it was wonderful to coach her. She played it really well. She just won a competition at her junior high and is a member of the band. I have a student that writes his own music. Another girl has taken a leave of absence to study in Sardenia Italy for 1 year. She will be back in July of this New year. I feel very happy and excited at their progress.

Lesson Rates

These are challenging economic times for most parents. So I have kept the same fee without raising prices for instruction. I meet with each student once a week. The length of the session depends on the student level. If a parent calls to cancel a lesson I give credit for it. If a parent wishes to enroll more than one sibling I am open for negotiation concerning the fees. Adult students pay the same price as children.

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

I usually take all ages. I have 7 year old in first grade to 12, 13, 14 in Junior High, as well as High School and College level students. I also teach adult students of all ages.

My Certifications and Awards

Bachelor of Arts form the Philadelphia Conservatory of Music.

Certificate in Italian from the University for foreign Students in Peruggia Italy.

Advanced Degree in piano performance from the University of California y Hayward.

Standard Teaching Credential fro grades K to 9 to work in any public School in California. I was a regular 5th and 6th grade teacher for the OAKLAND CALIFORNIA SCHOOL DISTRICT teaching all subjects, language, math..etc and a consultant for its bilingual program.

My Musical Influences

My musical influences have always been the great masters in music especially Bach of which I play several preludes and fugues.

The best piano teachers I had were madame Renata Borghatti and Mrs. Lillian Bauer Cox.
