About Me

Hello, my name is Masako Udagawa.  I have taught hundreds of students from the very young through adults through  individual paths.

My musical journey began as a student at the prestigious Toho Gakuen School of Music in Tokyo, Japan.  I currently reside in the beautiful valley of Pleasanton, CA where I teach piano and voice.

I have discovered that after more than 30 years of experience with music, my true passion in life is to share my love of music with my students and encourage them to enjoy music throughout their lives.  It is my hope that my enthusiasm and devotion to will continue to reach and inspire young artists.
