About Me

 laugh

I love music!  I have loved it since I was very young.  My parents were also musical.  Everyone in my family played piano, guitar, and other instruments.  I started playing the piano when I was about 5 years old.  I grew up in the state of Montana, so there weren't as many activities that you have here in California.  So music was my whole world.  I was in band (clarinet), chorus, piano lessons, and sang and played for the church my family went to.  

 

When I was 16 years old, I decided to become a music teacher.  I got a degree in Music and my Credential from Cal State Hayward (now Cal State East Bay).  I was a piano major, since it was my first instrument.   I have been teaching for the Corona Norco Unified School District since 1988.  I have taught vocal music, fourth grade, high school musical theatre, and the last 12 years, I have been teaching band.  On the weekends I play and music-direct for a musical theatre company.  We are currently doing the show, "Seussical".  Of course it is on break now, like everyone.  If we come back to performing it, I will let you know.

I have a son who is also in the music business.  He performs with a band in New York City, so that is my favorite place to go on vacation.

 

Music has added so much to my life, and I am so proud to be your music teacher.  Stick with it, practice hard, and enjoy every moment!

 

Musically yours,

Mrs. Endemano
