A pianist and teacher of the Suzuki Method for 30 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. Her workshops at the Holy Names University Summer Suzuki Institute in Oakland, CA and in Bellevue Washington were designed to help other teachers naturally guide students in improvisation and composition with the Suzuki philosophy as a foundation. 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. She lives the philosophy of weaving creativity of all art and artists into her life and teaching in order to help students find beauty in music and strength in themselves.
