Izzy Anderson has a multi-faceted career as both a professional musician and an award-winning artist. Her love of teaching has culminated in the creation of Izzy’s Artistic & Musical Academy, which provides students with an engaging studio environment where creativity is nurtured.
With over ten years of private and studio piano teaching experience, Izzy is well equipped to meet the needs of each student she encounters. Following her Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from Missouri State University, Izzy graduated from the University of Texas – San Antonio with her Masters in Piano Performance and Pedagogy. During her Masters, she wrote a paper examining adaptive approaches to teaching students with dyslexia. This paper topic paved the way for years of interest and research into the idea of an individualized approach for studio teaching, which can be applied to both piano and painting lessons. Izzy carefully chooses pieces or projects that are the right fit for her students’ abilities and learning styles, with the ultimate goal for students to have fun and enjoy learning.
