Hi, I’m Colleen Akiko. I’ve enjoyed teaching music for a lot of years. I grew up in a musical family, listening to many rehearsals and concerts and imagining colorful stories to go with them. I began studying piano at seven and performed with a symphony orchestra at 17. That’s when I began playing professionally, sharing a variety of flavors of yummy music. Writing songs has been a passion of mine since junior high school. Helping students learn, create and discover the magic of music makes my day!
