My Students

I am a music teacher in Queens, N.Y. for Kindergarten to Third grade students. Through a non-profit organization called "Music and the Brain," our students have been able to participate in learning keyboard instruction. This neuroscience-based program was designed to help students develop critical thinking, and tune their fine motor skills.

It has been a great joy of mine to watch students, as young as five years old, immerse themselves in the music and learn the discipline of practicing an instrument.

Last year, we were able to start the Chorus and Dance Group during after-school hours for students with a passion for the arts. The music program has created an outlet for students to expand on their creative skills through music appreciation. We would love to keep the music alive here by encouraging students to participate in all our music opportunities.

My Project

The students at P.S. 7 have been building their piano technique through the wonderful, Music and the Brain Method Books. We would like to add more music to our repertoire list! The students are requesting popular songs from the radio to play during our class time. This new method book would inspire and help our students build their piano skills.

The students are eager to learn more music and broaden their musicality through modern music of today.

It has been a pleasure teaching our students the basics and fundamentals of the keyboard. Being able to watch them grow into little musicians, and take charge of their learning has been an amazing journey to witness as a teacher. I hope that these method books will challenge and encourage our students to discover more about themselves, music and the keyboard!
