About myself

My name is Ana Gloria Segura Guerra, I was born in El Salvador in Central America, and I came to Australia in 1987. I started piano when I was 11 years old, my dad was my first piano teacher, he had a Music Studio and he was always very busy. He was also a High School teacher like my mother, so our house was full of books and interesting things.

Growing up was very intense for me, I always had many hobbies and interests, but music was my favorite. I studied music for many years, and I started helping my dad with his studio.  My life was tough because I was at high school and  at the same time I was studying piano and tending so many musical commitments. I was also very active playing sports and other things that I used to do. Even with all my multiple duties and hobbies, I did enjoy that part of my life immensely.

During my teenage years I participated in many Piano concerts and presentations;  I was also invited to play on TV  few times, I played at shopping centers, I participated in many charity presentations during Christmas time and I won a piano competition too, hosted by TV channel 2. My dad used to have piano recitals at the end of the year, where students used to perform, also other artists where invited to join our recitals, just to have variety.

I am very passionate person in everything I do, especially in music. I love music so much and I always keep myself busy continuing learning about different techniques, ways to teach more effectively and my main goal is to ignite  my students with knowledge that will help them to develop their musical skills, skills that later on they can pass to others. 

I have been teaching piano for over 40 years and I have lots experience with children, teenagers and adult students. In addition to music, I graduated in Accounting which was done overseas and here in Australia I studied for 2 years in Business and Computer management at The Macarthur University, I done other courses at TAFE including computers, business  sewing, English courses, also Tax course with HR Block just to update my accounting skills. Recently I've been participating in many music Webminars, I done  short music online courses and I completed the AMEB 8th grade Piano comprehensive and Grade 4 Music theory. I am an accredited piano teacher with the Music Teachers' Association o NSW.

I like keeping myself busy and look for ways to improve myself and I love sharing my time with my students.

Recital 2021

Our Recital was on the 19 of December 2021. Twenty two of our students participated and they did wonderful performances. We also had new students and they did a well. The end of the year Recital has become a tradition in our studio, even though we could not have one last year but we were very fortunate to have it this year. 
I want to thank all the parents for all the help and contributions, also The Uniting Church at Camden for giving us the opportunity to use the venue.  We are looking forward for next year's Recital and I wish you all Merry Christmas and all the best for the new year.
