Classical music is stuck in the dark ages. I have adapted a system of learning that seeks to recontextualize the art form by pairing specific skills with core school subjects: math, literacy, foreign language, science, sports, history, and more! This system is known as Arts Integration. No more boring, tedious technique drills or pointless little songs. People deserve to have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to music, and soon find that its a worthwhile journey to love and pursue music. I believe that everyone can achieve their musical goals with the proper motivation. It's hard work to be a proficient pianist, but its worth it!

About Motya G.

I am a recent graduate of the University of Maryland with degrees in Piano Performance and Music Education. I've been teaching piano for over 6 years, and voice for 2 years.

Earlier this year I founded Fermata Music Studio which uses the Arts Integration system to contextualize music in students' lives by teaching it through a core school subject like history, literature, math, and science. Students learn about piano technique, music theory, history, and ear training as well as extensive repertoire by engaging in depth with musical skills and topics.

I am also a music teacher for Montgomery County Public Schools, so I have experience working with many age and proficiency levels. I believe music should be fun for all, and my goal as a teacher is to enrich the lives of my students as much as I can with music!
