Angy Estrada’s professional journey shaped her love for playing piano, and sharing music with others by composing, teaching, and supporting her students. Born in Cali, Colombia, from age 12, Estrada performed with Orquesta La Misma Gente, side by side with some of the most important national and international salsa bands of the 90’s. This experience motivated her to expand her horizons, so performing and teaching classical music was an avenue for her adventurous development. Dr. Estrada was a first-generation student and has participated at Maricopa Music Competition, the Universidad Industrial de Santander Piano Competition, The Junior Philharmonic society of New Orleans performances, the Music Teachers National Association Competition, and the Van Cliburn Piano Institute, among others. She completed her college education at Arizona State University, Tulane University and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Since 2003, Dr. Estrada has been teaching piano, and working as choir director, pianist and organist at different music schools and churches throughout the U.S.  In addition, her passion for cultural diversity engaged her in Jazz and inspired her to compose her debut album entitled: Latin Pulse, released in 2017. Estrada’s philosophy, “There is always something new we can learn and something new we can teach,” drives her energy to creating projects serving the community, and encouraging her students to freely love music.
