About Lynda

Before relocating to Southern California, Lynda Arnold taught piano and flute, performed and produced music in the Bay Area for over 15 years.  She received her music degree from DePauw University in Indiana and a Recording Arts degree from Ex’pression College for the Digital Arts in Emeryville, CA.  Lynda attended the Stanford Jazz Workshop in 2008 and also studied guitar and the Speech Level Singing technique for two years.  In the Spring of 2011 she completed the acclaimed Sound, Voice and Music Healing Certificate program at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.

Lynda has taught privately at many music schools in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 15 years before recently relocating to Long Beach. She has developed and taught piano and audio production courses for Pyramind Audio Training School and Ex’pression College for the Digital Arts in Emeryville, CA. In addition, she writes music and audio tutorial articles and reviews for popular online education magazine, Ask Audio. Lynda was a contributing writer for a Pyramind School text book published by Alfred called ‘Music Theory, Songwriting and the Piano’ in 2013.

After studying classical music for many years throughout college, Lynda craved to find another way to express herself through music.  With this solid music education foundation, she was able to expand into improvising, composing and performing in the rich San Francisco Bay Area arts and music scene.  Learning digital recording opened up a whole new world of musical possibilities and paved the way for years of musical experimentation and song-writing – merging the acoustic with electronic. She has multiple album releases on a variety of international record labels and has performed extensively at clubs and festivals worldwide.

Lynda thrives on teaching solid fundamentals of her instruments while finding the unique musical passions, talents and motivations of all her students. This integrated approach has been successful in student retention over the years. Many of Lynda’s students have stayed in her studio for 5 years or more and made music a part of their life long journey.
