Wow! I cannot believe that I am entering my 23rd year of teaching and the 19th year of the Musically Minded Program! For many years, I ran it by myself as a sole proprietor in my living room, first in Berkeley and in Oakland.
In 2005, Sarah Cappelli was the first instructor to join me and in 2007 we incorporated at Musically Minded, Inc.–a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Sarah and I worked together to refine the monthly events and later Angie Spinelli, and Vicky Grossi along with psychologists, educators, and school administrators chimed in to grow it into the program that it is today.
On August 26th, we will start the 19th year of this program. We are accepting private students on most instruments as well as group students for:
Piano and Violin (ages 4-6),
Intro to instruments (ages 5-8),
Drum Kit (ages 8-11), glee (ages 8-11),
Adult Beginning Jazz Combo
Adult Pop Vocal Ensemble
Seniors’ Jazz Ensemble
These lessons all include our monthly event program. Call now for enrollment information!
