Cindy is the manager, and teacher, of Desi's Music Centers Studio in San Diego, CA. She offers a variety of classes specifically designed for adults. Her classes are filled with interesting people, most of whom are retired from professional careers, who have a desire to make and share their own music. In the warm, friendly atmosphere strangers quickly become friends as they learn to make music for the first time, or improve music skills they already have. They enjoy exploring the rhythms, accompaniments and special features of the wonderful Roland Atelier organs. The skills Cindy teaches can be used on electronic keyboards and digital pianos as well as organs. There is a monthly gathering of "Friends Playing for Friends" which is always filled with laughter and fun. She also teaches children age six and up. They too enjoy playing everything from classical to pop with rhythms and accompaniments while learning the fundamentals of making music. The children also enjoy their own "Friends Playing for Friends" during the summer months. Cindy's motto is, "It's not about how you play. It's about how you feel when you play."
