Jeanette's Corner


My Story  (Part 2)

I got the opportunity to attend Santa Clara University after auditioning there for Hans Boepple.  Little did I know at the time that I'm now part of lineage that dates back to Beethoven and Haydn!  I majored in Piano Performance and graduated in 1985.  The highlight of my years at Santa Clara was when I got to perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in it's entirety with the Santa Clara University Orchestra.  


I didn't really know what I wanted to do after college.  Performing was hard for me.  But three years later, I decided to go back to school to pursue a Master's Degree.  Since I had just broken up with my boyfriend, I wanted to leave the area and ended up in San Fernando Valley at CSU-Northridge.  I started out as a Performance Major because I didn't know what other options I had.  The vision for the rest of my life began to crystallize when I took a class as an elective called "Piano Pedagogy."  That class literally changed my life, how I taught, and gave me new direction.  I immediately changed my major and graduated in 1990 with a Master's Degree in Piano Pedagogy and a desire to someday open my own piano school.


While I was in graduate school, my parents moved to El Dorado Hills which is what brough me to this area.  I loved driving through Folsom.  Loved it's energy and knew that this is where I wanted to start my piano school.  So in September of 1996, I opened Folsom Piano Academy on South Lexington Drive.  After moving several times around town, we settled into our current facitlity in 2007.  I am grateful everyday for all the wonderful students and teachers and parents that touch my life.  I'm grateful for the positive impact we have been able to have on this wonderful community.  And, yes, I'm eternally grateful to my dad for his determination to have his first born learn how to play the piano!
