Mrs. Bacon began taking music lessons when she was 4 years old and has been playing piano ever since; teaching piano for the last 11 years at her home.  Yoriko grew up in Japan, graduated from the University of Tsukuba (Ibaraki, Japan) with a Bachelor’s Degree in International Development and then moved to the United States.  She has been married for 19 years and has 4 children, ages 9 to 19.  In her free time, she loves playing piano, reading books, crafting, creating art, and gardening.   She values family time and enjoys sharing family activities together regularly.  This is Mrs. Bacon’s seventh year at Happy Hands.  She believes children have unlimited potential and music is a powerful tool for expression of young ideas and feelings.


“Children are born artists with great imagination.  I will be more than happy if my classes can help each child find their own new ‘notes’ inside themselves.”
