Hello. I'm Trish Zamora or as the children call me, Miss Trish! I look forward to meeting you, providing piano lessons and early childhood classes and helping your children have fun while developing their musical, academic and social potential. I believe that every child has the right to a musical education. As a parent of a child with special needs, I welcome and encourage all children to participate in music classes. After graduating from UW - Madison with a Bachelor of Music Education degree, I accepted a teaching position in Australia and stayed there for 30 years, teaching band and classroom music for many of those years. I was asked to write the Instrumental Music Curriculum documents for the State of Queensland, organize State wide music festivals, and act as an advisory teacher and mentor other music teachers. While my own children were involved in Kodaly based music classes when young, I was so impressed with the skills that children could achieve at such as early age, that I retrained as an early childhood music specialist gaining my Kodaly Certification and have been teaching children from birth to 15 ever since! I taught at Griffith University's Young Conservatorium for many years as well as running my own home studio in piano and early childhood music. I also lectured at Australian Catholic University, instructing elementary education students in how to teach music in their classrooms. My family and I moved back to my home State of Wisconsin almost five years ago and was on the faculty of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music for several years. I now teach part time in schools and spend most of my time in my home studio teaching piano and early childhood music. Although located in Mequon, I have students from Germantown, Cedarburg, Port Washington, Saukville, Grafton, Glendale, River Hills, Fox Point, Bayside, Milwaukee's North Shore and as far afield as Brookfield and Jackson. Please feel free to email or ring me on: 262 242 6306 for more information.

Miss Trish is excellent with Kids. My son started taking lessons just before he turned 5. She makes learning fun and exciting for him - a few times she even incorporated lego projects with Piano!! She gets to know each of her students and not only teaches them piano but also music theory and music appreciation. I really can't say enough good things about her. She loves music and kids. Miss Trish is the best at what she does. My younger son can't wait until he is old enough to take lessons with her! Keep up the great work!
My daughter thoroughly enjoys the group lessons of MYC. She did not know anything about piano when she started, but she quickly learned how to read notes and play different kinds of music after a few months. The MYC textbooks are also well structured for children to learn about rhythm, tempo, chord, notes, etc., in a fun environment. Kayo
"Mrs. Zamora encourages a wide range of music types (classical, jazz, etc) which has been wonderful for me".
Ms. Trish is an excellent teacher who understands the student's strengths and weaknesses. She promotes a strong interest in music and music appreciation by creating a learning environment the students enjoy.
