I am a Piano Teacher in Stamford and Woodbridge, CT. I specialize in teaching piano, voice, and basic music skills to children and adults. I have developed three basic music programs:
- Kindergarten Program for children 4 to 6 years of age
- Piano Program for children and adults
- Voice Program for adults.
Kindergarten Program The program is designed to maintain the interest of Kindergartners and make them want to continue to learn and study, all in a fun and non-frightening atmosphere. My music lessons help Kindergartners explore the world through their senses and emotions and through such activities as storytelling, imaginative play, turn taking, focused listening activities, and playing with rhythm instruments. In the process they learn how to develop:
- Perfect Pitch Ear
- Hand-Eye coordination
- Listening skills
- Active imaginations.
Most importantly my music lessons are designed to enhance Kindergartners’ mental processes of thought such as:
- Visual processing
- Problem solving
In my program children can act like bears and birds; move to music, rhythm, and sounds; and turn everyday movements such as waking and jumping into dance. In addition to listening to music and repeating the tempo, they also learn valuable music skills, such as recognizing (and being able to name) the keys on the piano keyboard, reading notes, and tapping out melodies.
My piano Lessons are individually designed and emphasize hand position, ear training, and music theory. All piano lessons are tailored to the student’s age, needs, and abilities.
My Voice Lessons are individually designed and emphasizes breathing technique, ear training, music reading, and how to produce a good sound. Each of my voice lessons is tailored specifically to the student’s age, needs, and abilities.
