Anne Candela was born and raised in Orange County, CA. She began playing piano at the age of 6, and she is currently attending Fullerton College – enrolled in their Piano Pedagogy Program. Anne is working towards her music degree, but she has extensively studied classical, pop, musical theater, and jazz styles. Anne’s greatest musical influence is Chopin. She has always enjoyed helping people of all ages learn and grow, but she especially loves working with young kids. She makes lessons fun, and she implements concepts that are easy for children to understand. Anne feels like patience and understanding are critical to developing a young musical mind. If she is not behind a piano, she is dancing, listening to theater or classical music, or hiking and enjoying the outdoors.
