Since I can remember, the love of music has always been my passion. I started taking lessons when I was 11 years old in September of 1999. From that moment on, I discovered my love and passion for the piano and classical music. I continued my education in piano and music theory all the way through college. In 2005 I started taking music history, theory, orchestral and piano courses through Las Positas College in Livermore, CA. In the year of 2011, I was able to graduate with an A.A. in Music and a Certificate in Beginning Piano Pedagogy. During my college years, starting in the year of 2008, I worked at a music studio called SmARTSunlimited, where I taught piano, guitar and drums for 6 years. In 2014, I went on to teaching privately and have been teaching ever since. For me, teaching is not only about learning music, but also helping us learn about our own selves. For me, Chopin's music has greatly inspired and become a part of me. I feel closer to his music more than any other composer. Though I feel a great connection to Chopin's music, I also enjoy playing and teaching music from Baroque, Classical, Romantic, 20th & 21st century composers and today's popular piano songs and artists. I hope to not only teach children to play piano and how to read music, but to also help them discover themselves through music. I look forward to working with you.

At Opus Piano Studio, my goal is to provide you with a comfortable learning experience. I strive to make learning the piano, reading music and developing musicianship skills as enjoyable as possible. I will always listen to my students and help pick selections of music that they enjoy and will want to learn. I also provide my students access to Ear Master Pro. Ear Master Pro is a state of the art musicianship skill training program, which my students can access at home on a computer, tablet or smartphone to help them develop their aural and musicianship skills. Their progress is monitored and recorded. This allows me to see their scored results on a weekly basis and help them in the areas that they are having difficulty in. Please contact me for more information.
