Born in 1982, Christy Harmeson began playing the piano at an early age. She studied piano under renowned accompanist Robert Hazelrigg for over ten years. Christy began teaching private piano lessons in 1998. After studying piano at the Santa Rosa Junior College, Ms. Harmeson transferred to Sonoma State University where she double majored in Music and Communication Studies, earning a bachelors degree in both and graduating Magna Cum Laude with Distinction. Ms. Harmeson performs regularly as an accompanist for local voice and instrumental students, as well as with local choirs and vocal groups. She believes in a complete, holistic approach to the study of music. Piano should be fun and challenging, providing the student the opportunity to stretch their understanding and love of music. Ms. Harmeson teaches students to play the piano in a supportive setting, offering group classes and performances to further their growth. Lessons proceed out of a classical approach, but are tailored to suit each individual student, motivating them to continue their studies. Jazz, pop, and rock music are used frequently to supplement traditional music. Ms. Harmeson believes motivation is the key to any studentís success, and she tailors each lesson to be inspiring, thought-provoking, and enjoyable.
