On Friday, December 11 TV’s Fox Five News aired a segment where Emmy Award-winning senior reporter, Linda Schmidt, interviewed Vera Anselmo, the Founder and Executive Director of The Piano School of New York City. They spoke for nearly twenty minutes discussing how the piano programs, that have been brought to area schools since 2001, enrich the lives of countless children throughout the city.
The broadcast aired from the Murray Hill Academy School in Manhattan, where students were displaying what they have learned on piano. Both the students and the Principal, Anita Manninen-Felix, expressed how extremely thankful they were for programs like this to be made available for them.
The mission of Piano School of New York City (PSNYC) is to make a positive impact and broaden the perspectives of all children and adults by providing exposure to and availability of piano and music instruction by highly trained musicians. Small group classes in piano performance, music theory, and music history support our main goals of fostering self-esteem and early, direct participation in music that might not otherwise take place due to income inequality and insufficient musical instruction in schools.
