About Judy F.

Judy teaches: Ages 5 and up
Teaching since: May 1993
Last sign in: 2 days ago


I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. It began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16. I went on to attend and graduate from Christian Heritage College (now called San Diego Christian College) with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Business. I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire. I also have a great deal of experience in Pop, R&B, and Classical so I am able to help students excel in these genres as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your private teacher, I can promise you a very soulful and rewarding experience – having fun is part of my lesson plan. My goal for each student is to build confidence through knowledge and experience. I will encourage each student to reach into their spirit and bring out what is already inside of them through the type of music that brings them happiness. After 3- 6 months of lessons from me pianist will be able to know beginning concepts, play songs of their choice by ear and note read simple songs also. Singers will know beginning vocal exercises, be able to project their voice, and sing high and low notes accurately to songs according to their ability.

THE BEST!! experience ever. My daughter is very shy when it comes to her singing, she was able to help her open up more and build her confidence. After only a few lessons I could hear how much she has already improved. Yes I would recommend Judy and look forward to our next lesson

Judy was able to teach my daughter to play 3 songs in one lesson! My daughter had never touched a key board! She is also very patient and kind. I would highly recommend Judy as a piano instructor!

I have had a couple instructors from TakeLessons and Judy is by far my favorite! She is encouraging, organized, and works with my learning pace. I am so happy I found her.
