"Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul"
About Patty Griffiths
After taking a short break to marry and begin a family, I enjoyed accompanying church choirs, ensembles, and instrumental soloists. In 1990 began giving private piano lessons at the New Hope Performing Arts Academy in Fayetteville, GA. I have continued to teach in many of the various locations that I have lived with my now retired Army musician husband.
I enjoy teaching all levels and types/styles of music to young and old alike, incorporating technique, theory, music history and musical artistry into each lesson.
I like to prepare my students for recitals, because that experience creates goals and teaches them about poise and public performance. But my real reward comes from working with them each week. A performance might last for three minutes, but lessons they learn through practice last for a lifetime, whether they continue with music study or not.
My goal is to allow each student to enjoy their musical experiences and inspire them to seek and discover for themselves all the joys that music can bring.
