Sara Maniscalco, M.A., N.C.T.M., came to our teaching staff from New York after spending several years as a faculty member at Westminster Conservatory of Princeton. She has a master’s degree in piano and has been teaching since the age of 16. Sara joined the TBMA piano faculty in 2014, and was promoted to the role of Administrator in 2017.
Sara’s teaching career began as a result of her natural love for her instrument. When she was 16 years old, her teacher moved and Sara began teaching some of the students she left behind. It wasn’t long before word got around and Sara began teaching others in her neighborhood, developing her first teaching studio. “I think teaching is often a very natural outcome of being a musician,” Sara told us. “You love to play and practice, and then there are others around you that want to learn, so it feels very organic to begin sharing what you know.” That’s the kind of teacher whose love for music will be contagious, helping students develop the life-long love of playing that we value so highly here at TBMA.
Sara is qualified to teach private music lessons in the following areas:
