About Me

I love playing piano and I love teaching piano. My Carmichael studio /music lab welcomes children, teens and adults to discover that they can learn to play the piano quickly and beautifully. Hundreds have learned to play well over the 30 years I have taught here. I teach private, partner and group lessons, according to the needs of each person. We have monthly playing opportunities at a retirement community; some participate in annual auditions sponsored by Music Teachers Assoc of California and National Piano Teachers Guild. I enjoy every style of music myself and generally teach a core historical variety of music from classical Baroque to Ragtime. I'm mother of four adult children and grandmother of five! Please call 916-944-7138 and visit my website: McKinleyPianoStudio.com.
