Private  Lessons

Image by Marius Masalar

Dr. Gretchen Hull has a thriving private studio of about 20 students.  She serves very committed students who have a passion for music and a desire to pursue a high level of artistry. Her students have been awarded prizes and competed as finalists in multiple national and international competitions. Throughout her many years of teaching, she has taught a wide range of students from young children to university piano performance majors, preparing them for recitals, competitions, auditions, and recording sessions.

Lessons are given at her home in San Jose (Almaden Valley), where students have weekly lessons on a Steinway L. Student recitals are held at a larger venue twice yearly, and students also receive opportunities to learn from guest artists in public studio masterclasses.  Dr. Hull is an active member of MTNA and MTAC and all relevant local California chapters, which provide excellent additional opportunities for regular performances, competitions, and masterclasses for all interested students.
