in Voice, Piano, & the Fundamentals of Music

Study Piano with Sandy Connolly

Crescendo Music System for piano is a teaching method designed by instructor Sandy Connolly to engage and challenge beginner and intermediate level piano students in the development of fundamental skills required to perform any style of music. Students as young as four years of age and up are welcome in this curriculum as are teens and adults.

Studies in music reading, scales, proper technique, ear training along with focus on a repertoire chosen in the style of music the student wishes to learn are developed with arrangements either purchased or written by ourselves specifically for each pianist’s level of performance.

We’re at 5 Old Post Road, Madison very close to the giant crane that says “Beebe” in the boatyard behind The Red Tomato and Friends’ & Company, just over the East River from Guilford. Turn onto Old Post Road next to the Red Tomato, (it’ll say “Dead End” on the street sign, but be brave) wind around through The Land of Shrink-Wrapped Boats and past the yellow house. (You’ll swear you’re in the wrong place, but keep being brave.) We have the entire second floor of East River Marine building with the number 5 on it.
