In 1991, I moved to South Tampa and established a premier piano studio. Cynthia’s Studio of Piano of South Tampa, Florida opened 20 years ago as a premiere studio in teaching traditional classical keyboard skills, keyboard technique, and music theory. My students range in age from 6 to Adult. I enjoy a wide range of skilled students; the hobbyist as well as those proficient enough to play advanced classical piano repertoire.
