Get to know Tania

I am a teacher, special educator and a music teacher as well.
Music has been a very important part of my life from a young age and
has provided me a fun outlet. I play classical piano, Church songs and
hymns, as well as a variety of genres that include pop, classic, 70's,
80's/disco, and golden oldies.  I love to sing and love playing golden
oldies and hymns.  I encourage my students to play and do what music
you enjoy, first.  Other music will follow.  I also emphasize to all
students, the importance of learning and mastering music-reading, or
what people call "sheet music".  Being able to read notes and
understand what is on a sheet of music and then the ability to play
that, is like learning how to talk or sing, and then learning how to
read/write words on a paper.  Can you imagine any good musician or
singer you know or admire who is good at singing but can't read the
words or write words down on paper?  Playing/singing and
reading/writing both are important.  It may seem challenging at the
beginning, but just like writing it becomes second nature.

I have done graded music exams from the Trinity College of Music
London.  In later years I picked up the keyboard and learnt to play it
as well.  In the last few years I have worked  as a piano and keyboard
teacher and a piano accompanist for violin and flute students doing
music exams. When I settled in Texas, I continued to play piano as a
hobby as I was raising my family. I was the volunteer accompanist for
the children's choir at St. Andrew's Catholic Church for a short
while. In 2019 I was the Music Director at an assisted living facility
helping them with the piano and leading the congregation wherever
necessary for weekend  Church services until Covid hit and things took
a pause. Now I am a Music Teacher Expert at  Music & Arts Store, Hurst
Texas.
