Yvonne Gersdorf
Coming from a musical family, I was introduced to music at a very young age. Encouraged by my mother, a professional piano teacher, I studied piano under her guidance for several years. I later expanded my studies to include vocal instruction with Maestro Silvio Isana, a former conductor with the Chicago Symphony. After graduating from high school, I attended Allen Hancock College in Santa Maria, CA. where I studied music composition, writing for television and film, and musical theater. After graduating from college, I secured a teaching position at Goodman Music Co. located in Fort Worth Texas. Upon my returning to Santa Maria, CA. I continued teaching at Owens Music Co. I currently serve as a piano and vocal instructor at Musicians Corner and Music Learning Center in N. Providence, RI. As a result of my musical background and education, I bring a host new ideas to share with my students that will make learning a fun and productive experience.
