In 2003, Mrs Gonzalez de Anderson attended Princeton based Center for Music and Young Children completing the Introductory and Advanced training in Early Childhood Music Teaching. Mrs Anderson was awarded Music Together certification level I status, having demonstrated outstanding achievement in teaching, musicianship,program philosophy, and parent education. The certification was granted by Music Together LLC ‘s Founder/Director Kenneth K. Guilmartin.
The summer of 2022 the Symphony of the Hills performed Camile Saint-Saëns notable Organ Symphony under the direction of Dr Eugene Dowdy. As the third and very last of Saint-Saëns’ symphonies, it is considered as one of his most beloved works throughout his tremendous musical career. As a piece cast in two movements, “Organ” is nearly unprecedented in 19th century symphonic composition. Further reconfiguring 19th-century music, Saint-Saëns doesn’t just use an organ, but also a piano, to establish and communicate themes. Mrs Anderson had the opportunity to perform the piano part of this monumental work performed in the Texas Hillcountry. Dr Sabrian Adrien was the organ soloist.
Mrs. Gonzalez de Anderson teaches, plays for church services and works as a staff accompanist for the Schreiner University music department.
