Arun has been attending lessons utilizing the Sens-A-Pitch method for 5 years. Within that time without any additional schooling or extracurricular training, he has been able to advance from no ability to determine notes, to 7 notes at once, and can identify the octave they are in.
THE VISIONARY BEHIND SENSAPITCH
In her own words...
Since childhood, it has been my dream to share the incredible gift of self expression through music with others.
I think that in order to understand who I am, and how passionate I am about music education, you need to know where I come from, and why I love music education so much! Every day I am amazed that it just keeps getting better. Our students are the most amazing group of people I will ever meet, and our teachers are truly my precious children.
I was born with a genetic gift, that through exposure to the right environment of music lessons, resulted in me developing Absolute Perfect Pitch (AP). I was blessed to have parents that instinctively gave me the absolutely perfect environment to foster my gift. I have come to believe that this gift is not rare, and that almost all instinctive/intuitive musicians have it. But that comes later.
Without my parents, and other tragic events that happened in my life that acted as catalysts, I would have never been able to refine my natural talents and abilities. These events now shape every decision I make, every teacher I hire, and every parent interaction I have.
Now through our non-profit, MUSE Arts Education, we can give people with disabilities the opportunity for healing through music. In this chapter of my life, my whole world is about people like Tara Olson, a girl wtih a brain injury that has changed my life. She is one of many that I have worked with that are precious to me. It is because of students like her, and Tina Green, another precious girl with a gift, that I am truly happy every day! I dedicate this story to all of the hero's of my life, including my husband, Pete, who has made me believe that "we" are so much bigger than "I".
