I am pleased to announce that we have two excellent teachers who will began teaching the CSMA music classes at Carlton Avenue School on January 23, 2017. While the program makes every effort to avoid a teacher change mid-year, it can happen for a multitude of reasons. However, we have two experienced and dedicated teachers who will be sharing the position for the remainder of the school year. They are very excited to be teaching at Carlton and have loved becoming part of our Carlton School community.
Dina Glendening: has been a performing pianist, chamber musician and teacher for over seventeen years. She has been a prizewinner in numerous Bay Area piano competitions and has recently added improvisation and composition to her musical palette. She teaches elementary music classes, piano and music theory. She looks forward to understanding the unique personality of each student, helping them find their own natural creative spirit and intrinsic motivation in the process. Dina has been teaching with CSMA since 2013.
Jon Slomich: is a multi-talented instructor teaching elementary music classes, guitar, piano, drums and recorder. His goal in music instruction is sharing the gift of music with others. He values students having a positive association with the idea of learning music. Jon makes sure his lessons are fun, relevant, and professional. Jon has been teaching with CSMA since 2011.
Dina will be teaching on Mondays and Fridays, Jon on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For grade levels that they share, they are working together on developing the lesson plans so that each class will receive the same instruction. In December Petra Clark joined CSMA as the new Music4Schools Program Manager.
