Guzyal Conklin is the founder and teacher of Family Joy of Music School. Her love for music, children, and teaching gave her the vision to create a music school in a happy and positive environment where families and children of the community can embrace the joy of music in their everyday activities. Guzyal has been teaching piano for over eighteen years to children of all ages, including children with special needs and adults. Mrs. Conklin holds a BA in piano performance from Stony Brook University and also had the opportunity to study piano at Julliard Art School of Music. She studied piano both in Russia and United States and has developed a fun, creative approach in her teaching, with a “gentle push” to achieve productive results for her students.
As a passionate and educated teacher, I make the best music programs for children of all ages, available to guide and help them grow musically while giving the long lasting gift of playing musical instruments. Our programs invites family members to actively participate during class sessions and at home studies. Together we can show children that the learning experience can be fun by singing songs, playing music, by performing in holiday concerts and recitals. The philosophy behind our school is to bring family and community together through the joy of music. We thank you for sharing our vision and joining our Family Joy of Music!
Mrs. Conklin wholeheartedly believes that piano lessons and early childhood music education teaches so much more than just music. It opens the doors of imagination and creativity while teaching children discipline and organization skills. It awakens intuition and supports a positive attitude, builds confidence and social skills helping people overcome emotional and physical barriers. Most of all it brings people and families together.
Mrs. Conklin is looking forward to welcoming your family and making beautiful music together.
