Learn beginning piano from a teacher who has played piano for her enjoyment for over 20 years.
At the present time, I am just teaching Beginning Piano. I have been playing piano for over 20 years, but have recently put it on hold to concentrate on mastering my violin skills. I have taught one student in the past for a short period of time. She was doing well but had to quit for financial reasons. My playing experience includes playing in two piano recitals in San Diego, CA where there were over 50 pianos on a large stage and we played music with partners. That was a lot of fun. I have also accompanied a fashion show which was fun too. I completed four semester of piano at a Jr. College and tested out of piano in a 4-year college, but I mostly play for my enjoyment and relaxation.

Cathy is a great teacher and very easy to work with. She has a very upbeat attitude and there is no such thing as a silly question, she provides great practice goals.

I have had several violin students sporadically for over 20 years. I taught one student from Elementary School through High School before getting my degree in Violin Performance and teaching on a regular basis. I prefer to teach in my home, but I will travel to students' home if I can fit it into my time.
