My passion is music especially teaching piano and accompanying. I have more than 50 years of experience in teaching and about 30 years as an accompanist. I belong to the El Paso Music Teachers Association (EPMTA) and the Texas Music Teachers Assocation (TMTA). I am presently the accompanist of the St. Mark's United Methodist Church Choir and the Franklin High School Choir. I was the accompanist of the Ballet El Paso at the University of Texas at El Paso, the rehearsal pianist for the Opera and Zarzuela companies of the university, and also for the program Opera on Wheels. I was also the conductor of the Classical Orchestra and Choir of the Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez in Mexico for eight years. You can find me on Facebook and Linkedin.
Elena Castañeda is an excellent piano teacher with a lot of experience. I’m learning more now than I ever did by myself using a piano app. I look forward to my lessons and am finally learning to sight read. I highly recommend her!
