MEET EDELIR GARZA
Looking back at where it all started, it seems like I was taken by the hand and led down a path of great fulfillment and passion. I first fell in love with making music as I learned to play the piano. I later fell in love with how I was able to teach others to the make music. I have currently fallen in love with the opportunity to encourage younger teachers through my experiences and learned lessons.
My musical journey began at age eight. I remember listening to songs and their was this one sound that would stand out above all. It wasn’t until my father helped me pinpoint what it was that I discovered it was the piano. Soon after I ran across an ad in the newspaper for piano lessons and I asked dad if he could sign me up. Of course, I had not idea the kind of request this was for a single-incomed family of five. Nonetheless, dad took me to sign up for piano lessons and making music quickly became my passion, joy & refuge.
