A Bit About Zoë
I started my music education as a child in the Bay Area. My passion for music stayed with me through out my life and took me study and graduate with a degree in Professional Music and Music Education at Berklee College of Music in Boston. After a move back to the Bay in 2017, I decided to start a small business to offer in-home lessons with a calm, modern approach to music pedagogies.
