I am from a musical family of several generations, all the way back to my great grandfather! I am the niece of acclaimed Jazz Trombonist Urbie Green, the cousin and ( I'm told ) the first classical piano inspiration of award-winning Jazz Pianist Jesse Green.
Among my other relatives have been numerous less-known, yet greatly accomplished professional musicians, from famous name swing bands to New Orleans jazz. Stars and glamour in the music business have been part of me from the time I was a gleam in my parents' eyes.
Although my family's renown is in the jazz idiom, I studied classical piano, sheet music and singing for musical theater from pre-K through high school. My experience has included playing an electric keyboard and singing vocals in a professional, working band.
After playing with bands in high school, as a college music major, making good grades was a piece of cake! I was invited to phi theta kappa honors society, graduated with honors and, with a 4.0 grade point average, was offered an opportunity to study in the professions.
Being from such a musical family, the idea of learning an academic profession sounded exciting, so I graduated University, served an internship, and passed professional licensing exams before I learned that being a " pro " did not guarantee financial security.
Due to the economy, I made a decision to return to my roots. I have dusted off the piano and refreshed my music skills so I may teach quality, private lessons to dedicated students. The variety and extent of my knowledge in music, and my family values, will help you learn what you want!
*** Lesson Details ***
I will be available for beginning and intermediate students. If you have never touched a piano before, you are also welcome! Beginner students may come to the first lesson without books, but if you have books or sheet music you are familiar with, please bring what you have worked with most recently.
Be prepared to start with an evaluation of your abilities ! We will cover posture ( both body and hands ), warm-up exercises and ( surprise ) cool-downs too. After the evaluation we will take a look at what you want to learn, and we will help you find the pathway to make your goals with piano music. After each lesson, you will be able to practice what you have learned on your own, for a week or two, and then we will meet again for a new lesson to re-evaluate what has been accomplished. We will discover your strengths, increase your understanding, and then open the door to what we will work on next.
*** Studio Equipment ***
You get a great view of a beautiful lake, and a fantastic and fun music lesson at the same time !
My humble yet dependable upright studio piano is in the foyer just as you walk in.
*** Travel Equipment ***
The student is expected to provide all instruments, books, and/or any other equipment to use for practice and performance outside of the lessons.
I used to say that you need to have access to a piano or keyboard to learn piano, and that is definitely the best way to learn. If you have access to a computer and not a keyboard, you can still learn to play music with these resources I heard about from George W. Russell, Jr., Professor of Harmony/Piano, Berklee College of Music:
http://www.musictheory.net/piano (This keyboard is mobile friendly, but only has 4 octaves.)
I am sure you will love my studio. I do expect students to do the travelling for music lessons :)
*** Specialties ***
I teach beginning through intermediate students.
Classical piano, music theory, sheet music, vocals with microphone, vocals for stage, acting.
*** Other things I can teach ***
Tutoring for basic studies, including study skills, setting goals and motivation.
Architectural design for buildings, homes, gardens and interiors.
Mythological Goddess Studies and Practical magic.
*** Note regarding dates of certificates and education ***
Dates posted are approximate, and to the best of my recollection without actually having to locate each certificate and find the date on it. If anyone wants the exact date, just ask me and I'll take a look.
I fully enjoy teaching music and theater to others and spreading the art of performance, reaching out to all generations. I believe in customizing every lesson to be unique for my students in a way that will serve their individual needs. I teach with patience and encouragement and believe that students prosper and improve much more from a positive experience. My lessons are intended to be fun and influential in a positive light that can lead to a rewarding career, hobby, or just for personal enjoyment!
Every since I was a little girl, I have been devoted to the arts. When I began college, I knew that music was my path. As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women the Musical, Seussical the Musical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer at churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to perform and study music because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it.
With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

I am a composer and pianist who works throughout southern California as an educator, producer, and performer. I've been playing the piano since I was 12 years old, from classical to jazz and pop, and I've been teaching private lessons since I was a teenager. In graduate school, I taught college level music courses including Music Theory, Music Analysis, Music Fundamentals, Intro to Music, and Jazz History. My most popular private lessons are in piano performance and instruction, which can include fundamentals leading up to classical, jazz, and or pop/rock. Additionally, I am often requested to teach electronic music production (in Ableton Live or Logic Pro) and composition. I also enjoy teaching music theory, history, notation, songwriting, and other related subjects. Lessons can range from covering piano technique, exercises, repertoire, to concepts for composing, or music production. Feel free to inquire!
Students who sign up for lessons with me can expect to study out of required reading materials, and may also be given worksheets with musical assignments. Because there are so many materials we can study from, I encourage students to take notes and prepare questions for our lessons. Homework usually consists of performance practice and technique, but may also include watching educational online videos, or listening to important musical recordings. I give my students assignments that greatly facilitate and benefit their musical growth. I enjoy working with students and showing them how they can reach their own musical goals.
