About the Teacher

Cynda Wolfe grew up in a musical family in a suburb of Los Angeles.  With the early training of Anna Irick Holle, former professor of music at what is now Valparaiso University, Cynda began playing the piano at the age of four years old.  Under the gentle easy instruction of her first teacher, she began her life-long deepening  relationship with music.

Throughout her university years Cynda continued teaching piano and working with music departments in work-study and scholarship programs, thus financing her education.  She graduated from university with several degrees and moved to Portland, Oregon where she continued her piano studies with Sylvia Killman. There she originated her private practice: Cynda Wolfe, piano, that brings the joy of piano to students today.

Life with music is a deeply personal and intimate relationship, a constant companion through all the ups, downs, twists, turns, discoveries and adventures life offers.  She wishes the same for you.
