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've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been.

I am an experienced instructor focused on beginning students of any age. It is never too late to learn the violin. I use the Shinozaki method as the primary textbook with Suzuki and Miller as supplemental texts. Students will be introduced to the history and structure of the violin and will learn how to read music, accurate intonation, identifying notes by ear, correct posture, proper bow holding, breathing and relaxation techniques. Methods I've developed over the years will help beginners master techniques that normally take years to develop and will allow students to quickly build up confidence and overcome psychological barriers.
Here is a recommendation written for me by a former student:
I am pleased to write a letter recommending Mr. John L. as an excellent violin ...
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 love to inspire and teach anyone excited about learning something new. I work with both classic and modern music. My voice teacher is Sandra Bengochea who teaches at SJSU, West Valley College, and Stanislas College. I am in my final year and will then be in a Credential Program. 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.
