|After a performance of classic ragtime.|
Welcome to Figura Music Studio!
I drew my studio logo in 2001 when I started my Master's degree for piano in Chicago. I went to the Chicago College of Performing Arts initially for a pedagogy degree, but ended up with a performance degree. That's okay though because I have learned quite a bit on how to teach in the best way possible: by doing it! Since 2002 to the present, I have been teaching piano. I have also learned much from teaching my own children, who are now 9 and 7 years old. I can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville- Bachelor of Music, piano performance
Roosevelt University (Chicago College of Performing Arts)- Master of Music, piano performance
As I mentioned, I have taught my own children. That along with the Music Together classes I have taught has provided me with experience in working with preschool aged children. Even though Schoenhut pianos have been made for many, many years, I only learned about them in 2010. I had to have one for my then 2 year old! But these are not toys. They are legitimate instruments, and can be used to do some real teaching. The keys are just like a larger piano. The sound comes from plastic hammers that hit tuned metal bars. If you would like to get your child 6 yrs. and under started with piano, don't hesitate to contact me. You can learn more about the Schoenhut pianos at their website, (Schoenhut).
