Hello music lovers 🎶🎹 It would be my pleasure to begin your music journey as your instructor. I have been teaching for 58 years & never grow tired of it. My students have always received the best methods according to their needs/desires & always enjoy my lessons..I encourage & motivate so practicing is a welcome pleasure! My Recitals develop confidence in public performance skills.
I have performed with many outside Orchestras in So. California on flute & piccolo including a Solo concerto by Chaminade. I have played under the direction of Leonard Bernstein, which was an awesome experience. I received 3 scholarships for Music camp at Idyllwild & Arrowbear.I was also in the La Canada H.S.marching band & Pop bands which included many performances. I have accompanied for many soloists at Sac.State & elsewhere in this area. I also perform at weddings, parties, church choir & school plays.
I carry an Associate degree in music & encourage my students to continue their education also. Music is a great way to express your inner self, in a way you have never felt possible before. Music begins where Words end.🎶
I love to watch my students when their light turns on!!🎶🎶 My lessons are fun & motivating.
I am open to teach any method/style you desire to learn. I encourage learning the theory of music, which develops skills to understand what you are playing & even to compose your own! I introduce Scales/Chords from your 1st lesson. Look forward to meeting you & begin your music journey.
My piano teacher, Ms. Cynthia Van Noy, was very professional. She also brings a lot of music talent to every piano lesson. She taught me, my two grandchildren, and a niece, and another nephew for years. We can’t wait to get restarted when the COVID situation is safer. I will recommend her to anyone seeking a music teacher who is patient, versatile, kind, and with a very likable personality.
We have loved our piano lesson experience! Our son has made so much progress with his skills. Cynthia is so enthusiastic, patient, and generous with her time. We couldn’t ask for a better teacher, who had also become a cherished friend. Cynthia manages to push and challenge our son, while keeping it fun and low-pressure. Her goal is to create a life-long love of piano. She is a talented pianist, experienced teacher, and a kind, encouraging mentor.
Cynthia is an outstanding teacher and an extremely accomplished pianist. She not only taught our daughter the technical aspects of playing the piano, but she helped her raise her self-confidence and self-esteem through performing music. Cynthia is a very patient and giving person and is her student's biggest supporter. I highly recommend her.

I was actively involved in school band & outside orchestras. Played under direction of Leonard Bernstein. Accompanist for church & school choirs. Performance with High School Drama Shows. Sac.State Choir Accompanist. AA degree in Music .
