Rudy is a native of the Washington D.C. area, but he and his family resided in South Carolina for the past seven years before moving to Utah. Rudy holds a Bachelor’s degree in Sacred music and is currently pursuing a Master’s in Music Education. He has studied piano as his principal instrument, and plays the violin as well. He has had the privilege of teaching music both privately and in the classroom for over twenty years, and his greatest desire is to help students discover the joy of music and to express themselves through that music. (Rudy is an avid fan of Brazil’s national soccer team, and he enjoys reading, writing music, and spending time with his family). Rudy and his wife, Rachel, along with their four children, moved to Utah to assist in a church work located in Mountain Green, and he is excited to join the team at The Piano Place.
