A pianist and teacher of the Suzuki Method for 24 years, Rebecca Boblak, (MM Piano Pedagogy with a Suzuki Influence) continuously develops her unique teaching methodology in which students learn to practice masterfully as well as improvise & compose – a full musical experience that grooms exceptional practitioners while maintaining the sense of wonderment that fuels creative inspiration. At the piano, she continues to practice and perform. Having concertized in North and South America, she currently enjoys collaborating locally with many fine Bay Area musicians. Together with Diana Rowan she founded the Garden Gate Creativity Center in Berkeley which gave space to hundreds of Bay Area musicians and artists to perform and teach. Although the establishment is no more, she lives the philosophy of weaving creativity of all art and artists into her life and teaching in order to help children (and people of all ages) find beauty in music and strength in themselves.
