Blue Door Music Studio is located at the residence of Carla Betz, piano instructor. Located in the Cambrian neighborhood of San Jose, the Studio is close to Highways 85 and 17 and near the borders of Campbell and Los Gatos. A private entrance and waiting area allow for dedication to the Studio for Carla and students as well.
Carla began playing piano as a preschooler and took formal lessons for ten years. She learned in a traditional method of reading music with classical pieces as well as pop, folk, and show tunes. As a teen and adult, Carla found herself regularly improvising at the piano and feels her life is incomplete without being able to express herself through music! Carla continues to grow by exploring new genres (recently blues) and try new instruments, including her newly inherited conga and bongo drums. A mandolin is on her wish list! Carla enjoys writing her own songs as well, and has other creative hobbies such as painting, creative writing and gardening.
Carla brings her love of music combined with her supportive and personal style to the journey of learning piano and music in general. She is experienced with children and adults of all ages, including those with special needs. Carla is pursuing graduate work in Occupational Therapy at San Jose State University and hoping to incorporate music her therapy in the future.
Carla teaches Beginning to Intermediate Piano to eager students ages 5 to 99.
