  • About Rochelle

    After teaching traditional piano lessons for 16 years, Rochelle Giordano was introduced to the Simply Music method and she has not looked back since!

    “The freedom and joy of music making that I have personally discovered through the Simply Music method has revitalized my piano studio. I thoroughly enjoy ‘passing the torch’ to my students: the current and future musicians of our culture. I appreciate the opportunity to share my love of music in a powerful way that really creates successful, self-expressed musicians. Making music together is a powerful experience! I love teaching and working with students of all ages and abilities. I feel that if I can help someone achieve success in music, it will help them succeed in other areas of life as well.”

    Rochelle asserts that we all deserve to have music as a lifelong companion, and sincerely believes the lessons she presents offer everyone that opportunity.

    • Rochelle has enabled my autistic grandson to unlock a capability we didn’t know he had. We are fortunate to call Rochelle teacher and friend.
