From the first day this school opened, I knew that it would become something much greater than just an institution of music. We have seen thousands of students come in with just a curiosity, and gradually develop the interest into a passion and desire to sharpen their craft to the best of their abilities. As it states in the heart of our mission, our vocation is first and foremost to “enable our students to discover and develop themselves and to achieve the highest standards in their playing and practice.”
What makes our school stand out from every other is our use of the techniques that are taught at the top conservatories around the world. As a former student of the Manhattan School of Music, Juilliard and Yale University, I was given the great opportunity to work under the genius of Harvey Shapiro and Aldo Parisot. I have made it our school’s tradition to dilute these invaluable techniques down to the simplest form, so that even our youngest pupils may understand and expand upon them. Our interest is that your child be put in the best hands possible and it is our mission to give the parents of our students that assurance.
I have always been and still consider myself to be, a student of music. I am constantly pushing myself to work harder and always allowing myself to keep learning. Here at The Connecticut School of Music, my inspiration comes from our gifted and motivated teachers, some of which happen to be colleagues and former classmates of mine. It is a privilege for us to have the best group of musicians I could ask to work with. They are what encourage our young musicians to keep at it. In turn, it’s these young musicians that are responsible for the energy that fills this school and gives it the warm atmosphere that we have come to cherish.
