Glendora Garza has a BM in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Texas A & M University in Corpus Christi where she studied with Joan Allison. With more than 20 years of teaching experience, she considers her vocation as a means to enrich people’s lives with music.
Glendora is a Texas native from Corpus Christi. She began playing the piano at the age of 8 with Marsha Bufler and participated in numerous festivals, competitions and performances. When she entered college she won the Blaise Montandon Scholarship and performed with the symphony orchestra. After having won the Corpus Christi Young Artists Competition, she had the opportunity to perform for Mr. Steinway in a private recital.
While teaching private piano in her home and adult group lessons at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, she worked as a music host at KEDT-FM, a classical music radio station, for some years until she married a Swiss aerospace physicist and left for Russia. During her time in Russia, she trained at the Conservatory in Kaluga and worked on the Russian Technique. She then went to Switzerland where her two children were born and taught privately at home to American expats for 6 years. The family was transferred to Paris, France in 2000 where she began working as a Business English Coach in several companies such as Nike, Peugeot, EADS and Mercedes Benz while continuing to teach a handful of private piano students.
Glendora arrived in San Antonio during the summer of 2012 with her family. She teaches all ages from beginner to upper intermediate levels. She is enthusiastic about sharing her passion for teaching and playing an active role in the community.
