I am Certified Beginning Piano teacher as well as an intermediate level teacher. I studied piano at Cerritos College of Norwalk, CA with an emphasis in piano and completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a focus in percussion from CSU Long Beach. I currently teach private and have taught classroom lessons for piano. I have consistently taught piano since 2002 to students ages 5 and above.
I have traveled the world to perform and teach music. I have been to Brazil to study samba and its many different styles through the World Percussion Program of CSU Long Beach in 2006 and 2007. In 2012, I traveled to Colombia and Venezuela to perform with the band of Terratour, a humanitarian group. My close friend and I performed his inspirational and encouraging music. We collaborated with local musicians in local venues. I have always admired traveling and performing live, and Terratour was the best opportunity to do so.
You may have notice I'm a Carpenters fan! I sing, play piano and drums. The Carpenters are my musical inspirations and that's exactly how I perform- with passion and tender, love, and care. I was once the other musical half of a Carpenters tribute band, Close To You. My friend and I learned many of the Carpenters tunes and collaborated with vocals, piano, steel drums, drums and other percussion. We have disbanded, but even before forming the band, I was always singing and playing drums/piano simultaneously on my own and still continue to.
I am available for online, in-home, or in-studio lessons. If your child younger than 5 can count to 10 and knows the alphabet, then I would be happy to add him/her to my roster. If you want to develop your talent, I can do that with you. You have all the ability and power to learn and be great- I'm just going to guide you all the way to your goal.
Please notify me of the special need prior to booking lessons so I can accommodate.

Michelle was great! On time, very patient and great at explaining information to my 6-year-old grandson!
Michelle is a great piano teacher, she taught 3 of my kids. Michelle always took the time to make sure each lesson was fun and interesting.
I would highly recommend Michelle as your next music instructor.
Great teacher. She has great teaching skills. She teaches in a patient and understanding way.
Michelle is very patient and she has the perfect temperament to teach children. We have known Michelle for many years. She is currently teaching my 5 year old daughter.
