Piano Classes offered by Izzie Chea from Encore Music Studio


Izzie has been surrounded by music since birth. Her mother, Gloria Riddle, would practice piano with her baby bassinet placed underneath. Izzie began piano lessons at age four, joined the Corpus Christi Cathedral Choir at age six, and picked up flute at age eleven. After numerous piano Guild awards, UIL Division One designations on voice, flute and piano, an Outstanding Performer Award, Chopin competitions, and the Houston Flute Club's International Competition First place award earned at age fifteen, Izzie chose to pursue music in college, and enrolled at the prestigious University of North Texas School of Music. Izzie studied under Dr. Mary Karen Clardy on flute, Dr. Jeffery Snider on voice, was a member of the Canticum Novum choir under Dr. Henry Gibbons, and the Collegium Musicum early music choir under Dr. Lyle Nordstrom.


Three classes are being offered. Each student must have access to a piano. I would recommend the 88 key full size keyboard with pedal, but a 76 key is okay too.
