Judi began performing in recitals at the age of 8. She performed as a soloist with the Huntington Park Symphony Orchestra at the age of 13. She also performed solo recitals from the age of 13 throughout high school and college. Judi received a music scholarship from the U.S.C.

I am an adult student who returned to piano after 25 years. I had only taken lessons for 5 years originally, so after all the years in between, I was essentially starting over. Judi has been great, she tailors my lessons to my pace and keeps me moving for continual learning. After a few months of lessons I feel very comfortable and I'm surprised at my progress, Judi is very musically talented and shares her talent and knowledge in a professional and friendly manner. I really enjoy my lesson time, my favorite moments are when Judi sits on the bench with me for duets, so fun!
