Hello my Name is Ms. Stella and I have close to thirty years of entertainment and educational experience in the field of music. My studio in Costa Mesa is a nurturing environment for beginning through beginning advanced piano and voice students. In my youth I was classically trained as a pianist but once I arrived in college I formed a band and was its primary song writer, and to this day I love playing classical works and original songwriting in the style of the Great American Song book. I hold a teaching credential in Early Childhood Education from the state of California and also was confired a Piano Teaching Diploma from Fullerton College. My current students range in age from 5 to 85 and I have years of proven success with very happy piano, theory, and voice students. My love and enthusiasm for all things music and teaching are my greatest asset as I feel I share that passion and excitement with my students! Thank you so much for considering me as your next music teacher.

Ms. Stella is amazing! My 6 year old son started taking lessons with her last year and he loves it. He has been progressing very nicely. Ms. Stella is very patient and is so great with young children. She knows how to keep their attention and make it fun for them, but also stay focused on actual technique. I love the program she is using with my son and that it is fun and not overly strict. My son has a difficult personality and can be hard to deal with at times, but Ms. Stella works so well with him and knows just how to handle his type of temperament. If you have a young child who wants to learn the piano, I highly recommend Stella!
