About Me

I first fell in love with music when I started taking piano lessons at the age of six. I continued studying privately while attending Castro Valley High School, going on to earn a degree in Music from UC Berkeley. Since graduating, I’ve worked as a professional singer, pianist, organist and private music teacher in the Bay Area.


     I couldn’t have asked for a better piano teacher. Cole is quite simply a great piano teacher for my daughter. He is so talented, patient, kind and a very thorough instructor. He teaches my daughter not only piano playing technique, but also ear training and music theory.

My daughter has taken lessons with Cole for a few years now, and she amazes me with how much she enjoys it and how much she has developed her piano skills. My daughter really loves to learn piano with Cole. I would definitely recommend him anytime.

  Cole is a great music teacher. My son has learned a lot from him in the past 3 years. He is patient and positive. We love his teaching style as it helps my son stay engaged. In addition to the techniques, he also teaches the history behind the music.
