A Day in the Life of a Traveling Piano Teacher (Videos)

I take a once a week journey to Rockridge where I teach a private piano student. The 51B bus that I catch in Downtown Berkeley following my gym workout, travels along College Avenue, crossing into Oakland, California.

Destination: a lovely two-story home on a tree-lined block, with a sub-level add-on designed specifically for its chief occupant, a Yamaha upright.

A creek and shrubbery bordering the room is even more eye-catching, bridge over creek

but doesn’t upstage, “Nina,” a miniature pooch who makes a charming cameo appearance in my video.

Nina

Such a colorful backdrop was entree to a piano lesson that explored Chopin’s divine E minor Prelude, Op. 28, No. 4.

The bus trip, walk, and arrival
