Brenda Paddon

My journey brought me to California in 1996 where I raised my family and opened my own studio, Musical Friends, in the San Francisco Bay Area. During my years there, I earned an associate’s degree from Ohlone College in Human Development, worked for five years as a special needs instructional aide with the Fremont Unified School District and the California School for the Deaf, worked for five years as a preschool music specialist at Stratford School, and developed my skills on several other instruments including guitar, violin, harp, hammered dulcimer, and singing. All this concurrent with running my busy piano studio where I brought several students to winning national and state gold medals for their playing.
