Patricia has developed a new piano method for young students, ages 5 to 7 yrs. It's called Sing and Play; which uses the voice to learn music and then play it on the piano with good form in a musical way. It is based on Kodaly's vision for teaching music to everyone.
This method is adapted to older students and adults as well. It results in the student processing the music differently and more musically. Learning is easier, and challenging musicianship skills are easily developed.
Singing instruction emphasizes state-of-the-art techniques and exercises for relaxing and strengthening the voice, for extending the vocal range, and for bridging vocal breaks.
For more information, email or call me. You'll find me to be friendly and caring. I use intuitive problem solving skills to get to the underlining problem and resolve it with personalized exercises. My students perform very beautifully and musically; including my professional students. All levels welcome.
