About Georgia

Hello there! My name is Georgia Schohl, and I am passionate about teaching piano at the San Ramon Academy of Music. My journey in music began in the northwestern lower Michigan town of Ludington, where I studied piano under Mrs. Florence Robertson from the age of 6 to 18, exploring various musical methods and styles.

I pursued my love for music by studying at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I majored in music and studied piano with Adelaide Banaszynski, music theory, music composition, and ethnomusicology, earning my B.M. degree. Later, I moved to Berkeley, California, and obtained my M.M. degree in Music Composition from Mills College in Oakland, California, where I studied composition with Terry Riley.

Why do I teach piano? Since childhood, I have always wanted to teach piano to people of all ages. It is immensely satisfying to help students set goals, enhance their mental health, increase creativity, ease anxiety and depression, and achieve a sense of accomplishment.

I am grateful for the opportunity to share my passion for piano with you or your child and support you on your musical journey!

Book With Georgia

“I didn’t want my son to be turned off to piano because of all the practicing. Lots of work but not a ton of play. James brings enthusiasm and joy to the discipline. He picked up my son’s style and personality, and could flow according to my son’s uniqueness/playfulness.”

“My biggest concern is if my kids don’t enjoy and have no progress over a significant amount of lessons time. So far your role as a teacher has been very helpful in making my kids interested & focused on their lessons”
