My Music Garden is the natural outgrowth of my 20-year or so career of piano teaching, at such schools as United Nations International School in New York City and Mustard Seed School in Jersey City. Founded in 2006, My Music Garden has a dual mission: to bring music enrichment services to schools, be they afterschool or core programs, in such areas as vocal-based group classes, music and movement activities, or instrumental ensembles; and to provide individual instrumental instruction, primarily in piano and violin, the instruments that I feel offer the best foundations in musical training for young students.
Our teachers are carefully picked for their high-level, specialized musical training, for their pedagogic skills and for their rapport with children. While our headquarters is near Lincoln Park, we bring our services to a number of schools and locations in the Jersey City area.
I am delighted to be joined by my husband Ashley Horne, a professional violinist whose teaching talents I have admired since 1995, in this mission: to bring quality music education to young people. We love teaching, and we feel privileged to be working with our talented teachers and the committed families in Jersey City!
