We believe music education is an essential part of a child’s development. It is stated in many studies that learning music helps significantly in achieving better results in all other areas of academic curriculum.
We are honored and delighted to have B.C. Registered Music Teacher - Dianne Szarapka coming to our preschool and teaching music to our children.
Meet our Music Teacher
Hi! My name is “Mrs. Dianne” and I have been your child’s music instructor here at Shine-Sign preschool since January 2010. It has been such a pleasure, and so much fun to work with the children and see their enthusiastic responses to the many songs they have been learning. They are memorizing words and actions, and are enjoying the variety of rhythm instruments they are playing.
I have been teaching preschool music for the last fifteen years in the Fraser Heights and Guildford area. I have been a private piano teacher for over 30 years, and have seen my students become music teachers and performers. I have been trained through the Royal Conservatory of Music, and have received their diplomas in both the “Piano Teacher” and “Piano Performer” disciplines. I am also a certified “Music For Young Children” teacher.
I believe that music is a vital part of every child’s education. Music helps a child develop self-esteem, self-control, develops brain activity, and reaches them in a place that no other subject can get to. It develops their listening skills and helps their attention span and so much more!
I’m looking forward to working with your child as we continue our music classes until the end of the year. The staff at Shine-Sign Preschool have created a wonderful environment for us to explore music together!
