Beginner Ukulele/Guitar Classes

Tween Girl playing the Ukulele

In ths weekly class, students will learn how to play and sing popular hits and traditional/folk tunes in a joyous and confidence-building environment. While guitars are more mainstream, ukuleles are making a comeback: they’re better for beginners because of fewer strings, which are easier to coordinate and softer on little fingers. $50/mo., sibling discount $80 for 2-3. Ages 7-13, flexible.

Available on Mondays at 6:30pm and Thursday mornings at 10:30am.

Ms. Springer performs at CVP!

In costume in “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” at the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse.

One of my great joys as a musician is performing at Brevard County’s terrific community theaters!! Combining outstanding performers with talented set and costume artists, musical theater is truly the highest art form!

I’m happy to be playing the fun and sinister role of “Hilda.” Thanks Mom for the 🌹 and thanks to the friends and family who came out to see us.

Evaluating Preschool Music Curricula

A Parent Guide: Questions to Ask when Selecting your Child’s Preschool

The answers reflect excellence standards as set by the Music Educators National Conference and published in The School Music Program: A New Vision

What are the principles of your music program?
The years before kindergarten are critical for children’s musical development.

• All children have musical potential that they ought to explore daily
• Young children are capable of developing critical thinking skills through musical ideas
• Children should experience age-appropriate musical activities and materials—created and modeled by trained, enthusiastic and responsive adults
• Young children should not be encumbered with the need to meet performance goals—learning should be process-oriented (exceptions include skits, sing-alongs, and the Suzuki method of private instruction which encourages performance on piano, violin or guitar)

What is your preschool’s music curriculum?
Developmentally appropriate early music experiences should occur in safe, teacher-supported environments where children can “work” at the skills relevant to them. Children need:

• Individual time with musical instruments and materials
• Group music time to experience the social and interactive benefits
• Enthusiastic encouragement for students’ questions and suggestions—which stimulate their critical thinking skills, confidence, and leadership abilities

Ms. Springer performs at the MCT!!

Be sure to catch me as ditzy-flapper Jackie Coryton in this hilarious Noel Coward play. If you like “Seinfeld” and “Downton Abbey,” you’ll LOVE “Hay Fever.” Call the box office in the afternoon (T-Fri) for tickets (321-723-6935) or purchase from the website (myMCT.org).
PS – There is a parking garage across Strawbridge Avenue if street parking gets tough.

Ms. Springer performs in Athens, Greece

…with a Greek house band, spontaneously jamming on American songs of their choice, “Stand By Me” and “Unchained Melody.”

In the same week, I got to perform at a famous Jazz Nightclub in NYC called Birdland; seen here with world-famous M.C., Jim Caruso, and accompanied by Liza Minelli’s pianist, Billy Stritch. The song, “Goodbye, Emil” is from a lesser-known musical called “Romance, Romance.”

Ms. Springer performs in Sister Act

…Again at the Henegar Center in Melbourne, this time as a hip-hopping, disco-wailing nun. Audiences (aged 10+) love this show!!

You remember pieces of this story from the Whoopi Goldberg movie, but Curtis’s thugs will have you rolling on the floor and Alan Menken’s songs (composer of The Little Mermaid and Newsies) will leave you dancing out the door.

Purchase tickets at Henegar.org for weekend performances January 19th, 2018 through February 4th; tickets range from $19-$29.

The Springer Music Studio Re-opens in West Melbourne!!!

New in SEPTEMBER 2017…

I’m thrilled to announce the Grand Opening of the Springer Music Studio for PIANO, GUITAR, SINGING, and UKULELE. I specialize in teaching music and performance skills to students ages 5 through adult. I’m dedicated to coaching my students in healthy ways that will give them JOY and ENHANCE their lives for the PRESENT and FUTURE!

Additionally, SCIENCE has PROVEN that studying a musical instrument and playing it with others develops CONFIDENCE and COGNITIVE PROCESSING abilities in the BRAIN. Unfortunately, music is being cut more and more from schools, and this is a short-sighted movement that reduces children’s ability to EMPATHIZE with those who are different from themselves…a trend that should not continue in a GLOBAL economy and society.

Please “LIKE” the Springer Music Studio on Facebook for many performance videos and more details about signing up for private lessons.
