About Kristen Valente

Kristen Valente has been studying and teaching piano for over 25 years. She began as a student teacher at the DeBellis Music Center in Newark. It was there were she recognized her passion for teaching. She furthered her music education while attending Caldwell University as a music major. She studied under Marina Carroll where she began to develop piano artistry and musicality. She continued her studies in Manhattan, NYC under Magdalena Baczewska.

Kristen has experience teaching all ages, levels, and abilities. Her goal as a piano instructor is to teach the fundamentals, but also awaken a love and appreciation of music in each student and have them share their talents within their communities. She provides plenty of performance opportunities throughout the year. Every spring her students have an opportunity to compete in a Mid-Atlantic festival and competition.

Over her career she has performed in many recitals and concerts. She has competed in both state and national competitions and has performed for private and public functions. She is a current member of the Mid-Atlantic Music Teachers Guild.
