Welcome to The Villages Early Childhood Center!

  I am so excited to be teaching music here at the Villages Early Childhood Center!   I have been teaching at the preschool for over 10 years and I love to watch the kids as they learn and grow here at school. During the week I will be teaching music theory to each class here at the preschool. During music theory the children will learn through hands on experiences about instruments and music. 

 I will also be offering violin lessons for the three and four year olds.  The classes will be small groups of 3-4 students in each class and we will meet twice a week for twenty minutes each session.  I teach violin using the Suzuki Method.  This method was developed more than fifty years ago by Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki. He realized the implications of the fact that children all over the world learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach. I began playing the violin at the age of 5 and have grown to love music and the teaching of music to children.  

In addition to violin lessons I will also have keyboarding lessons for the four year olds.  Both violin and keyboarding can be signed up for through the Buffalo Adventure program.  Please email me if you have any questions.

  Musically Yours,

Mrs. Janis Pascarella

      Here are some practice tips:

1. Play the section of music you are working on slowly and listen for the correct intonation.

2. Memorize what you are practicing thoroughly.

3. Listen to music everyday.

4. Have a special spot in your house that is your child's spot to practice.

5. Keep a practice chart. Reward your child when they practice everyday of the week.

6. Remember a little practice everyday is better than nothing at all.

A child who listens to music is filled with joy.
