About Jillian

Hi! It’s nice to meet you. My name is Jillian and I’m a voice and piano teacher at the San Ramon Academy of Music.

Don’t we all learn best when we’re having fun? You know you do! I incorporate games, art, movement, song-writing, literature and improvisation to make my lessons fun for all students, no matter how old. With 16 years of experience, I have tools to customize lessons for each student’s learning style, personality, favorite musical genres, and specific goals.

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in Music Education, I taught in Quito, Ecuador where I directed an internationally-traveled a cappella choir. I’ve performed at weddings, cafes, church services and Quinceañeras, and even presented one of my compositions on Ecuadorian T.V!

When not teaching, I’m an avid fiction reader, a Latin dance enthusiast, and enjoy hiking and spending time in nature.

Book With Jillian

“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”
