Teaching since:
May 1993

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.

I couldn't be happier with Judy as a piano teacher. We cover a vast amount of material during our lessons. She is fun, intuitive and very supportive of my efforts. I have taken piano lessons in the past, but I didn't really "learn" how to play. Judy provides a spectrum of materials which help me to not only play songs, but hone my skills and explains the "why" and "how" of the way music works in an understandable way. She also has a very flexible schedule, which helps greatly. I would highly recommend her.

Judy is the best of the best! Every week I look forward to learning from her. I've worked with a couple other coaches previously and they do not even compare. Her heart is in the music and in the teaching. Would highly recommend to anyone no matter how much or how little training they have had.

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

Our experience with Judy was very, very disappointing. Student had 23 lessons and she REALLY WANTED TO LEARN AND WAS NEVER LAZY ABOUT IT. however there was no real lesson planning at all. in the entire time she was a student of Judy she was never even given any kind of lesson book on piano. We have since gotten another teacher who has excellent teaching skills.. And my grand child is very happy and LEARNING A LOT!!

Judy was fantastic! She was able to quickly assess what I needed to help with on a song I was to sing at a wedding and we worked on it within the half hour. I sang the song at the wedding and it went well! I'm looking forward to taking more lessons with her!

Excellent piano teacher. Ms Judys' methods combined with positive reinforcement has produced immediate results. I had no idea a six year old could learn so much so fast. I feel as though I'm getting my monies worth.

Really helps me out with the basics and every other aspects as far technic. We hit it off really well with the type of music I wanted to learn and we both liked, which is 70s 80s R&B

My daughter started piano as a beginner about a year ago with Judy. She LOVES going to her lessons and has done really well with the piano. Judy is a WONDERFUL teacher always encouraging my daughter and making learning fun! Since my mother was a piano teacher, I wanted my daughter to have strong background in theory. Judy is certainly giving her that and I am thrilled! I am very pleased!

My Favorite Teacher

I have taken voice lessons from Ms. Judy 5 years and I now am a lead vocalist at my church and have so much confidence with my capabilities now. She is the best teacher I've ever had and I recommend her to anyone ready to reach that next level in their skills no matter beginning or advanced.
