About Elsie

I have been playing the piano since I was a young child.  As a young mother I helped train my three children to become excellent pianists in their own right.

I had musical training lessons with their teacher Frank Tarentino for ten years.

Two of my children went on to graduate the Dana School of Music. 

I have been teaching private piano lessons for over 40 years.

My skills have been sharpened over the years with continuing education by Mayron Cole, David Glover, Faber & Faber, Margaret McGraff, Melody Bober, and Catherine Rollin. I have also attended the National Frances Clark Piano Pedagogy Conference for five years in Chicago.

Other Experience:

St. Rose Church, Girard OH: Organist, cantor, liturgist for ten years.

St. Mary's Church, Mineral Ridge OH: organist, cantor, liturgist.  I directed church plays and many other parish activities for 17 years.

I taught general music, flutophone and recorder in the Catholic schools for ten years.

Musical studio experience:

Biviano Music Studio in Niles OH for ten years.

Motter's Music in Canfield for nine years.

Music and Arts Canfield for one year.

Professional Affiliations:

National federation of Music Clubs

Youngstown Teacher's Accociation


Teaching adults as well as young people has given me great satisfaction.
