In both of our songs, student get to experience a piece of Ternary (three parts) Music through movement.

When you see the dance, you will notice that the movements change for each part of the dance!

Hello Parents and Students! This is Ms. G. I´m happy to be blogging about music in our school. I grew up in the United States, and recently moved to Barcelona from New York City. A little bit more about my professional background, I received my Bachelor´s in Music Performance from the Juilliard School, where I studied opera. I sang and worked as an Assistant Director with Opera Companies for many years before teaching music full time. This is my eighth year of teaching full time, and almost my fifteenth year of teaching private voice and piano lessons!
