If all of the jargon above scares you, don’t worry- it’s my job to worry about those things for you!

Here is the rest of my story:

I studied Music Composition at Chapman University and graduated in 2005 with a BA in Music with honors. I paid some of my way through music school  as a help desk technician in the IT department, until I found my passion in teaching piano, violin, and music theory at a local music studio.

After graduation, I opened a multi teacher studio with over 150 students in Irvine, California while continuing to work as a website developer and designer (at a design/branding firm, and freelance).  In 2010, I relocated to Long Beach, where I currently enjoy a full studio and a growing number of music studios as website clients! It has been amazing to meet teachers from all over the world during this time.

I have always believed in volunteering. Aside from my two careers, I try to make time to give back to my community in some capacity whenever possible. In 2019, I switched gears from volunteering with an animal rescue organization to  volunteering at our local children’s hospital, alongside the music therapist.

I enjoy photography, bike riding, creating new recipes, practicing musical instruments (for enjoyment!), and hanging out with my two rescue dogs, Buddy & Bebe.

WebMaestra's Philosophy



Transparency

I take pride in my work and therefore, I am upfront and honest every step of the way.

You will always know what you are paying for, how much approximate time it will take, and how much it costs beforehand.
Integrity

Many web designers outsource important development work and charge a premium for a product that is sub-par. I am strongly against this practice.

I am the one who does the work.

Personalization

Your website is an important marketing tool used to paint an engaging picture of your business.

I will work closely and directly with you to create a website that accurately and positively reflects your music lesson business.
Expertise

Proven marketing experience specific to music lessons as well as unique and versatile technical and copywriting skillsets.

This combination allows me to code, design, and even provide content for your website.
