ALL TALENT ACADEMY
Musical Core Literacy Education and Talent Development for All Ages
All Talent Academy, with locations in Southbury, CT and Greenwich, CT, is a unique music and talent development school, providing a holistic education that goes far beyond what traditional music schools offer. We train the whole mind while developing multi-intelligent skills, building confidence, and fostering good habits. Learning music becomes easy and enjoyable as students build skills used in everyday life: creativity, attention to detail, observation, persistence, good manners, time-management, listening skills, problem-solving, and the ability to focus. By identifying and developing children's natural talents, we create individuals who can remain poised and confident in all of life's situations, even from a very early stage.
Although we specialize in using the piano as a tool for life-skill development, we also offer a broad range of music and talent development programs, including speech and communication training, music theory classes, performance preparation, conducting with rhythm, teacher training workshops, and more. No matter what program you join at All Talent Academy, our unique teaching method guarantees the ease of efficient learning and an enjoyable experience.
Our method works because it is more than just a teaching and learning philosophy. It is a living, working, individualized method of instruction. Felicia's FFZF Program of Focus, Follow and Flow is designed to be an active plan for your success.
The principles of Etiquette, Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Enthusiasm, are at the foundation of our approach to both teaching and learning.
Focus, Follow, and Flow are key concepts and skills which you will learn at different stages in your learning. Together, they will lead to your success!
