ELLEN SASSANO I received my B.S. in Music Education, piano concentration, with certification to teach grades K-12, from Gettysburg College, Gettysburg, PA. Over the years I have publicly performed at many community and church events on the piano and organ as featured soloist, duettist, and accompanist including offering solos at church services. I am an active member of East Valley Music Teachers Association which features many student activities. My piano teaching philosophy is simple: I want children and adults to learn to love creating engaging sounds through strong basics of theory, sight reading and technique. I encourage lots of opportunities to promote ease of performance and piano fluency, as well as confidence and pride in accomplishment. Music should, mostly, be fun!
