The Tree House Music School

Join our Music Community!

With a Master’s Degree in Music, and experience teaching students of all ages as early as preschool, K-12, and through college level I invite you to join me in the fun of learning music together. 

I offer group, and individual private lessons in general music, rhythm, ear training, music theory, harmony, chamber music, and the following instruments : clarinet, recorder, beginner & intermediate piano.

 

With new learners I incorporate Kodaly's phylosophy of teaching with a child centered educational approach. In my music lessons I may combine traditional teaching techniques with the use of audio and video recording.

Where is the name of our music studio comes from? "As a child I used to take my clarinet and practice on top of our trees. Different trees gave different perspectives, and inspired different sounds, I felt I could sing with the birds. My dream is to build a circular tree house for our music studio, and share the freedom I felt as a child."

Monika is a fantastic teacher. She is knowledgable about the instrument, interested in what her students want to learn, and is very encouraging. Monika uses many different types of learning -- listening to good music, counting aloud, singing the notes, and pushing just slightly beyond what the student thinks she can do. I have already recommended Monika several times to others and I recommend her highly to you. (Tiffany Nicely H.)

"​We   have  to  establish   already   in  school  children  the  belief  that  music  belongs   to   everyone  and   is,  with  a  little  effort,   available   to   everyone."    (Zoltán  Kodály,  Lecture,  1946)

Music is academic,  physical,  emotional,  spiritual.   Music develops intelligence,  coordination,  artistry,  empathy.   Music is forever.   Music is for all.

​"​When    I    hear    music,     I    fear    no    danger.      I    am    invulnerable.        I    see    no    foe.      I    am    related    to    the    earliest    times,   and   to   the   latest."    (Henry  David  Thoreau)
