Meet our Teacher, Mrs. O:

Mrs. O received her first piano lesson at the young age of four in South Central Pennsylvania. And in seventh grade, she became a church organist and participated in the school’s jazz band. By ninth grade, she began her journey teaching piano to her fellow students. By her senior year, her class had grown to accommodate over 15 students. 

She then went on to college, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College and post-graduate studies at Penn State. Upon graduation, she opened a private music school in South Central Pennsylvania with 10 other teachers serving over 200 families weekly. She also continued her piano studies by mentoring under master teachers in Russian, French and American piano techniques and studies under Masterworks. 

After moving to Colorado with her family, she continued to grow in her musical journey by opening her own studio and continuing to teach private piano and Composition lessons. Mrs. O's Studio is a results - oriented studio with a "forward progress" approach. Rely on her experiences as a church organist, music theatre accompanist, vocalist, instrumentalist, ensemble accompanist, community organization pianist and piano instructor to help you optimize the talent within.
