About

I am passionate about helping people sing or play piano the way that they want to. I will direct you in choosing the right way to perfect your instrument(s) with positive reinforcement the whole way through! I enjoy the challenge of customizing my lessons to each individual. No one learns the same way, working with the student is key to making a successful musician.

About

I love what I do and I work hard to help students meet their goals! I can offer bilingual lessons (English/Spanish) I am committed to teaching voice students how to safeguard their instrument so they will have it to use for a lifetime along. I teach based on a foundation of correct technique. Music theory is part of the dirriculum for piano students and is taught on more of an ad hoc basis for voice students. My corrections are based on positive feedback. Varied styles of music are taught, including Regional and All State audition prep, Broadway, Opera, standards and more. I coach band and commercial singers as well. Performance languages (singing): Italian, Spanish, Latin, German, French; some Russian, Hebrew and Chinese.. I get to do what I love best. Being a musician is more than what I do; it defines who I am, and I am so fortunate that it can be my full time job. I operate my voice and piano studio as well as work as a church music director. I find great joy and personal satisfaction in teaching and seeing the talent and ability of others grow and improve.

About

When you hire me, you begin a mentorship with a teacher who will help you unlock the door to making music. I will encourage your musical preferences and open your ears to new composers and styles. I will point out all the things you're doing right and help you work through limitations to continue making progress. Some teachers have their methods, and they stick to them (and so must you!). I'm not one of them. To play the piano or violin, you need certain foundational skills - such as technique, ear training, and reading music - but they can be learned in a variety of ways. Most kids enjoy having some some say over what songs they play. I love walking into a lesson and seeing a child's face light up as they ask to play a song from a Disney movie or a Top 40 hit. I usually write their part for them so I can keep it at their level. (If they need to learn a bit more first, I tell them we'll work towards that goal, and I suggest other songs to get started.) This makes kids (and adults!) more invested in playing their instrument, which is really the point, isn't it? I can't tell you the number of times parents have told me their kids hardly left the piano or set down their violin between lessons. It's another kind of music to my ears! I especially enjoy helping the piano or violin player try something NEW. It's a little risky, it's a little uncomfortable, but once you start, it's also kind of addictive! Learning something new usually means that I lay a little groundwork first, then get out of the way. When needed, I give supportive reminders: a) cut yourself some slack, b) own your freedom to try it on your own, and c) definitely make a few mistakes, it's the only way! After the new thing has been attempted a handful of times, we work through what parts of it going well and where to focus in the coming week. The sense of accomplishment when you unlock a new skill or finally conquer that "tough spot" in a piece is like nothing else. Pure joy! It keeps every musician going, and makes it so much fun for me as a teacher, too.

About

Mindful Music Instruction was founded by violinist/vocalist Ariadna Kryazheva and pianist David Harewood. It is a small private studio in Fairfield County, CT offering music lessons for all ages. Exploring an instrument is a great way to expand your life experience! We help both children and adults develop a relationship with their instrument, providing a nurturing environment for artistic growth. Building healthy instrumental and vocal technique is our priority. Through careful observation and use of the Alexander Technique we work on preventing physical injury (pain, tension, vocal fatigue, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, etc) and frustration that arise from bad habits and poor basics. If you are thinking about having your child try a musical instrument, it is crucial to start off with the proper foundation. We love working with people, sharing the gift of music with them, empowering them to be their own teachers. Teaching is the best way to learn. There is no limit, no perfection, no ceiling in music; the learning never stops. By teaching all that we have learned in the many years of our own study and practice, we always continue to learn more from our students about various ways to approach problem solving in music, and at times what we ourselves could still be missing in our own practice as performers!

About

Ms. Sandie does not teach "by the book" only. All musicians are individuals, and learn in different ways. Music reading, Music history and Music theory are all important parts of becoming a well rounded musician, and are taught as well as technique and proper form. Every day is different!
