Music can inspire creativity and growth; it can evoke tranquility and joy. This was the case for Cindy W. who began playing the piano at the age of ten and within a couple of years studied composers such as Debussy, Liszt, Bach, and Chopin. While only in junior high, she started teaching piano, rapidly gaining teaching and business experience. She held annual recitals giving the students an opportunity to perform for their parents and peers in a public setting.
Cindy studied music with Rachel Perez-Hayes, a graduate from the Juilliard School of Music, New York, and was considered gifted and talented with perfect pitch recognition. Her background in music coupled with a Master's degree in Educational Psychology has enabled her to create unique lesson plans for each ...

I am currently a Vocal Performance/Music Education Student at SJSU. I am a Coloratura Soprano. I have been teaching on and off for the last 2 years.

I have assisted at Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, CA for the past 5 years in both the choral and drama departments. I have performed in multiple musicals and operas so being able to sing and act is something I am comfortable teaching.
