Jy GronnerMaster Teacher Los Angeles, CA, United States
Palisades Music School
Jy Gronner began playing at age six and was trained in piano in Oxford, England, and piano and conducting at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. In addition, Jy earned a Bachelor of Fun Arts at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Clown College.
As a Simply Music teacher, Jy has achieved Master Teacher status, was named International Teacher of the Month, authored a chapter in the book A World Where Everyone Plays, presents regularly at conferences, is a Simply Music-endorsed coach, and has co-authored organization-wide teacher training and student home materials.
Jy owned and operated a studio in Marin County for eight years before opening a second studio in Pacific Palisades, California, where she combines her skill as an experienced teacher of all ages with her passion for music. She loves to be a regular witness to the almost ineffable joy experienced by students as they find new ways to express themselves emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually, and is fascinated by how playing music affects the brain.
