Now teaching online during the pandemic.

Nelda teaches private piano lessons in her Madrona studio just ten minutes east of downtown Seattle. She enjoys working with students of all ages, helping them explore the beauty of music and find their own creative voice. Her students range from beginners working on basic reading skills to intermediate and advanced pianists working on jazz improvisation, composition, rock ‘n roll, Latin piano styles, classical repertoire and more.

“It has been great having you as a teacher for Jimmy. He has learned a lot — but more important — retained  a love of music and playing piano throughout his high school years. For that I am so grateful.”    — student parent

Nelda also teaches group classes at the Jazz Night School.
