About Valery

Valery grew up singing in choirs and being involved in all types of music. She joined our office faculty at The Music Place in 2001, working as a regisrar, and now also works as a music instructor specializing in teaching very young children, and works to develop curriculum for our Family classes in which parents participate with their toddlers in a guided music and movement experience.

Some of her background with childhood education include volunteer work with children's programs at her church, homeschooling her own children for eight years, and operating a day care for two years. She began teaching music theory to her own children in her homeschool, and now really enjoys working with a variety of other children. She also continues to study music (piano and voice) from colleagues at The Music Place.

In her rare spare time, Valery studies piano and voice from colleagues at The Music Place, and also enjoys going to amusement parks with her family, spending time with her pets, and scrapbooking.

Teaching Style

Valery is patient, perky, and thorough. She is willing to work with kids who have special needs and specializes in working with very young children.

Actual Customer Testimonials:

"We have recommended to many of our friends. We love the place. It has totally helped our daughter to not only know the notes but to truly have fun with them! We love the teacher(s) and wish them all the very best. - " -- Happy parents

"Our daughter, Melissa, loves her music class, and she looks forward to the recitals. She's made friends and become more confident. We'd recommend the Music Place to anyone. -- Melissa's parents, Kathy & Matt, Los Gatos" .

I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
