Happy New Year!! Welcome 2024!

House of Greco is a place to practice and reacquaint yourself with gentler and slower ways of living we knew not too long ago. It may be an understatement to say that our society is in the age of distraction and rushing through every aspect of life.

If you find that you need to slow down and experience life or you know the old ways and would like to sharpen your skills, House of Greco is designed to support both aspects. Come and join the fun of living a rich, meaningful, intentional life!

STATUS UPDATE - As of January 1st, 2024, the new studio location is settled into and is open after the transition away from 720 Capitola Avenue. I have acquired an 1896 Steinway upright grand that is in excellent condition. The soul of this piano has a gorgeous, round and warm tone, with a deep and expansive bass. I am very blessed to have found this piano and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you! ~ Anna
