My teaching philosophy is that students learn best when they are having fun! All lessons are designed with each individual student's goals and interests in mind, so if an approach isn't working, we switch things up. With over 15 years of experience teaching students age 3 to adult through a variety of methods, I can find something that works for the casual learner and AP/college prep student alike.

About Orlia B.

I am an experienced music instructor who has taught in Chicago, Austin, Orange County, and the Bay Area. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Music Education from Vanguard University. My earnest desire is to see each student succeed in meeting or surpassing their musical goals and expand their understanding of the world through music, the universal language. No two students learn in quite the same way, so I tailor each lesson by taking into account individual strengths, weaknesses, and interests to make learning fun!

Students will learn aspects of classical and popular music styles, basic music fundamentals, and songs/repertoire from around the world.

I look forward to sharing the joy of music with you!

My 7 year old would cry when having to go to piano lessons at school, but looks forward to her lessons with Orlia!

We loved having Ms. Orlia as our son's first piano teacher! As a boy with special needs (Autism and ADHD), we needed a teacher with patience, energy, experience, and a passion for music. Not only does Ms. Orlia have all of that, but she helped to instill a pride and love for music in our son as well. Her knowledge of piano theory and the inner workings of the piano itself really engaged our son, and he looked forward to lessons every week with Ms. Orlia! She tailored each lesson to his interests and questions, and met him on his level each week. Anyone would be lucky to have Ms. Orlia as their piano teacher!

Orlia was great with both my 7 year old beginner and my 14 year old alternative rock enthusiast! She has a great amount of patience and has fun teaching at the same time. I highly recommend!

Even my most stubborn child enjoyed lessons with Orlia; she could get him to laugh & perform while I could barely convince him to practice daily. She was patient, encouraging, and flexible/creative with curriculum. She formed a great connection with all three of my children. We were very sad when she moved away.

Orlia is the best!! My daughter had piano and voice lessons with Orlia for a year, before she moved. She is extremely knowledgeable and kind at the same time.
