Strengthen Attention Span: leading to academic success (proven through science) through the growth of cranial synapses. The rate of development is due to the combination of visual, auditory, kinesthetic, emotional, and social stimuli. This expansion happens quickly in children, slowing as we age, and yet can be maintained through our lifespan if we continue with music and maintain good nutrition.
Develop Self-Motivation: leading to career success & personal fulfillment. The layering of immediate response with delayed gratification plus the questioning of how to improve (higher level processing) develops students’ critical thinking and intrinsic motivation for better habits which can be applied to any topic or task.
Form Community: leading to musical friendships that are face-to-face and unplugged. The better that we play as individuals, the better groups we get to be a part of and the better our group music making can be.
Establish Musical Aptitude: leading to life-long enjoyment of music on any instrument and for any style. Early learning of any musical instrument sets up neurological connections but the piano is shown to be the most applicable to overall musicality due to the chordal and contramelodic possibilities. However, the guitar and ukulele also allow for chordal and melodic study, and leave the voice available for linguistic expression (lyrics).
Songwriting engages students in creative self-expression through music. Our program is designed for tweens and teens with knowledge of basic chords and scales and over one year of lessons on their instrument of choice. 🎹🎤🎸🎷

Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, SHE LOVES ME is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old-world elegance. The Mikos Lazlos play Parfuemerie, on which it is based, has inspired many adaptations, including the beloved film YOU’VE GOT MAIL starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.
SHE LOVES ME features music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret), She Loves Me was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964.
The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, while the 2016 Broadway Revival snagged the Tony Award for Best Scenic Design (beating Hamilton!).
Look!! Ms. Kristin is on the poster! What has that cad done to me? And how do I recover my reputation?
According to Ms. Kristin:
Isn’t this a marvelous poster!! I’m so excited to open on March 11th with Anthony DeTrano, Jenny Logue, Christos Tsocanos, Eric Hopper and a great cast/crew.
I get to portray the ditsy and flirtatious “Ilona” portrayed in the Broadway revival by Jane Krakowski.
I’m blessed with significant stage time including two solos “I RESOLVE” and “A TRIP TO THE LIBRARY” along with a samba pas de deux called “ILONA.”
I believe the unofficial rating would be PG — including situational comedy, off-stage gunfire, smoking, and drinking.
