Olga Corcoran Piano Studio
Home Studio: (707) 747-6957

Olga is originally from Russia, has Master’s Degree in Piano Pedagogy from Holy Names University, Master’s Degree in Music Education from Moscow State Institute of Music & Education, and California Teacher’s Credentials in Music. She still continues her professional studies in various institutions.

Besides teaching piano privately in her home studio, Olga teaches piano at Napa Valley College as an adjunct instructor, and AP Music Theory and Choir Classes at Acalanes High School District.

She firmly believes that everyone not only could, but actually should learn to play piano or another musical instrument, and it does not require any special ability or excessive hours of practice. All that’s needed is consistency and the professional method.

Olga encourages her students to take MTAC Certificate of Merit Evaluations, Royal Conservatory Achievement Program Exams, National Piano Guild Auditions, National Federation of Music Clubs Festivals, and to participate in local recitals and community events.

Since moving to the USA in 1995, Olga taught numerous piano students, with numerous students participating in and winning the Solano County Young Pianists Competition, the Northern California Piano Competitions, the San Francisco Chopin Council Young Pianist Competition, and the United States Open Music Competition. Many of her current students were chosen to perform at the Music Teachers’ Association of California Annual Conventions. Three of her former students have been accepted to different public and private universities as music majors in piano performance and music education with full scholarships.

Olga performs in solo recitals and as an accompanist for various choirs, violinists and vocalists. For her work as a Music Director with Solano Youth Theater she received Solano ARTY’s Best Music Director Award in 2011.

Olga also serves as an adjudicator for both Certificate of Merit program and National Piano Guild Auditions.
