Our Teachers

All of our teachers are passionate about music and the development of children.

They create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.

Stacie is the new director for Jeffs Music Together® and Heartsong Kids (now a part of Treble Time Music Studio) and also the owner of  Treble Time Music Studio. Ever since she started teaching it had been her dream to run her own center, and now it has finally come true! Besides being a director, Stacie is also one of the teachers! She's been teaching Music Together for over 5 years and has loved every minute of it.  To her, one of the most wonderful things about being a Music Together teacher, is that you get to see the children in your classes grow and change. For Stacie, it has been the most exciting and inspiring part of her journey. 

In fact, some of her older students are still with her, continuing their own musical journey by taking private piano and voice lessons in her studio. :) 

Currently Stacie lives in Queens with her husband Brian, and her collection of ukuleles, drums, and childrens instruments.

Angela Dinkelman

Soprano

 

Angela Dinkelman is a classically trained soprano who brings warmth, care and energy to her work as a professional opera singer/concert artist, private voice instructor and Music Together Teacher. Her love of music developed at a young age and she is thrilled to share that passion with children and parents/caregivers through Music Together. She has taught music to children ages Pre-K to 4th Grade at Brooklyn’s NIA summer camp and has helped both children and adults discover their own voices through her private vocal studio. As a performer Angela has appeared at Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space and Opera America as well as with several New York opera companies including Bronx Opera and Utopia Opera. She also enjoys programing and performing her own unique and interactive recitals that make classical music fun and approachable to people of all musical backgrounds.

 

Along with her great love of opera, Angela also most notably performed at NYC's Cafe Vivaldi, retelling the story of Breakfast at Tiffany's using only Schubert Lieder. Most recently she presented a series of Bach recitals, which featured soprano arias, piano solos and beloved hymns in a sing-along style.

Having earned her Masters in Vocal Performance from Mannes College, Angela is well-versed in traditional vocal techniques. She uses these techniques along-side Libero Canto, an approach to teaching that acknowledges the voice as a part of the whole self and works with gentle vocal exercises to free up the breath and any unnecessary tension. Using these tools Angela guides her students to discover their own unique voice in a way that feels organic to them. She enjoys teaching both children and adults, beginners and professionals, and is comfortable working with classical, pop, musical theater and jazz.
