Margo LockwoodEl Cerrito
I am a vocalist, pianist and choral director. I hold an M.A in choral conducting from California State University, Los Angeles, a B.A. in Music from California State University San Jose, and an Orff Certificate from UC Santa Cruz. Previously, I directed the elementary music program at Windrush School in El Cerrito, where I taught piano, in addition to arranging and conducting the music for two elementary choruses, and a middle school jazz choir. I have worked professionally as a jazz singer, studied classical vocal repertoire, and perform when the opportunity arises. I conducted for the San Francisco Girls Chorus School where I directed the Level II Ensemble, the Preparatory Chorus and coordinated a choral program in the San Francisco public schools.
I have maintained a thriving, private piano studio for 30 years in El Cerrito.
