Give them a foundation. Michele believes that music enlightens the mind and paves the way for confidence in every child. The earliest beginnings are most influential to a child.
Born and raised in Bayside, New York, Michele Maresca Schule began her musical education with the most caring and patient teacher, her father. Music was a part of her earliest memory that influenced her love and affection for the art of music and others. She began formal lessons at six years of age at her elementary school. By age eight, she began studying at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music which led to her foundations for her future endeavors. Even at the early age of ten, Michele enjoyed working with others and began playing piano and organ at school events, local religious events and regularly at church services.
At The Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, Michele studied Music and Education and piano with Donald Pirone and continued as organist and accompanist at institutions throughout New York and Connecticut. Michele shares her love of piano and music by teaching privately in her home studio and in various schools, Pre-school through High School. She is thrilled to be part of KiddyKeys and looks forward to enlightening young children with this magnificent program.
