About Me

I started taking piano lessons when I was five years old. I have soloed with the San Francisco Symphony twice, soloed with the Denver Symphony, the Oakland Symphony, New Century Chamber Orchestra, San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and the Palo Alto Philharmonic.

I also have performed on such series as Chamber Music West,
Chamber Music Sundaes, and Music at Kirkwood. 

Teaching background:

Private piano instructor for 13 years at the prestigious Nueva School in Hillsborough, CA
Piano instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College
Piano instructor at the San Domenico Conservatory
Chamber music coach at the Kirkwood Music Festival for 6 years

I have been a member of the Music Teacher's Association since 2000, and am a Certificate of Merit teacher as well. My studio is located in Rohnert Park, conveniently located near SSU.

My Musical Education Background

I received my Bachelor of Music and Master of Music Degrees
in Piano Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory, 
and have a junior college teaching credential.  

Genres and Subjects Taught

I teach mainly classical music, but also incorporate other styles if a student is interested in variety.  The teaching books I have every student use are a theory book, a technique book, a sight-reading book, and different method books.  As a student gains enough knowledge, then widening the choices of music pieces becomes much greater! 

Being a passionate chamber music artist, I also love to teach chamber music as well as how to accompany others, a very different art form from solo piano playing!

Student Reviews

Rohnert Park, CA

I am an adult student and Roxanne has been my piano teacher for the last 6 years. I started with her when I was on my CM Level 6. She has taught me a great deal through the years, including theory, technique, ear training, rhythm and an overall understanding of music and appreciation of all the different composers. Thanks to Roxanne I passed my Level 9 exams! Roxanne was just the type of teacher I needed to move forward strict yet kind and supportive. I highly recommend her.
