Meet our instructor Chelsea

Chelsea graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and a minor in Piano Performance. She began her studies at the age of 7 with top professional instructors for 15 years before attending college, and her many teachers recognized her for her innate talent of perfect pitch and ability to sight-read quickly. Throughout grade school, Chelsea participated in talent shows, was the choir accompanist, and school band (for flute), where she eventually was awarded section leader. In high school, she sang in choir and soon became the choir’s section leader, receiving an award for Best Section Leader, as well as the National Choral Award at graduation. The choir performed in Disneyland, Seattle, and Vancouver, Canada. The summer of her senior year, Chelsea interned at Stanford University in the music department. While still in high school, Chelsea completed the Certificate of Merit Advanced Level (level 10) with the Music Teacher’s guild, receiving honors as NorCal Division Top Tier Nominee. Professors at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music have also recognized her talent when they admitted her to the Preparatory Division post-audition at just 15 years old. Among her accomplishments have been Honorable Mention in the Sylvia M. Ghiglieri Piano Competition and grand prize winner in the Youth Focus Competition. Chelsea began teaching while in high school for friends, and has been teaching professionally, both privately and for a well known studio, since the age of 18. She offers baroque, classical, romantic, Broadway, and pop styles.
