Lena Gold, Music Director

Piano & Voice Teacher

Lena Gold founded California Music Academy 17 years ago, following many years of a successful career as a performing musician around the world. 

Teaching music to children started as a hobby and turned into a visionary service that enriched the lives of thousands of children and their families. 

Lena is happily married for 30 years and has five children. Surprisingly, all five of them agreed to follow their mom’s advice and ended up playing multiple instruments, just for the fun of it… 

Lena is proud of the fact that although none of them became a professional musician, they all benefited tremendously from the intellectual and personal confidence that is associated with learning music for years. Her children ended up attending top colleges such as the University of Chicago, Vanderbilt University, UC Berkeley and NYU Law, and are now enjoying playing music on their free time.   
At the Music Academy, Lena has developed an amazing team of talented music teachers, who are devoted to spreading their knowledge and love of music to the next generation. Lena is teaching at the Music Academy in Westlake Village and is personally involved in developing the studio’s curriculum along with her team members.
