Meet New Mozart's Distinguished Faculty - Dr. Eric K.

Meet New Mozart's distinguished faculty - Dr. Eric K.  

Eric Kujawsky is the founder and Music Director of Redwood Symphony, now in its 31st season (and, for most concerts, free for children). A conductor of far-ranging abilities, Dr. K has garnered acclaim for interpretations of works from every stylistic period and genre, with a special affinity for works of the 20th and 21st centuries. As a musician, Dr. K has performed as a member of orchestras, jazz bands, rock bands and choirs. Active as a music educator, he taught in the public schools for 25 years and has taught violin, viola, clarinet and saxophone privately for over 30 years. He has additionally taught at Notre Dame de Namur University and Canada College. 
His philosophy is that instilling a love of music is the most important step in ensuring that a student will become a lifelong musician, whether amateur or professional--and that parents play an important part in instilling that love.

Dr. K received Doctorate in Conducting from Stanford. His teachers have included Samuel Krachmalnick, Paul Vermel and Andor Toth. He has performed with the Aspen Music Festival, several Bay Area orchestras and choruses, and with TheatreWorks in Palo Alto, Ramshead Productions at Stanford, and the CaƱada College Drama Department. Dr. K made his Davies Symphony Hall debut with Redwood Symphony and the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus in June of 1996. He is equally at home with symphony, opera, musical comedy or jazz, and is recognized as one of the Bay Area's foremost conductors.

Dr. K teaches violin, viola, clarinet, and saxophone.  He has worked with young beginners to accomplished professional musicians.

If you're interested in lessons with Dr. K., contact the New Mozart office.

Why Should You Enroll Your Child in Music Lessons?

1.  It's FUN! 

Have you heard anyone say that he really hates music?  Everyone loves music!  

And just imagine how much more special it would feel to be able to play or sing.  There is no better gift to give your child, for that matter yourself, than music lessons.  The musical skills they will learn at New Mozart will last a life time.  

2.  Did you know that researches have shown that children who take music lessons do much better academically?  So it's not only fun but it brings this amazing added benefit as well.  

Why Is New Mozart the Best Choice?

1.  Over 500 students think so! Our reputation for providing the highest quality music lessons & classes have allowed us to become the largest music studio in Palo Alto.  And some of our families come from as far away as Berkeley, Fremont & Los Gatos!

2.  Highly qualified teachers who know how to make learning fun. We get a ton of resumes throughout the year from many excellent music teachers who want to work at New Mozart.  We carefully screen our teachers and only select a few experienced teachers that have shown excellent musicianship skills AND the ability to make learning fun. 

3.  Ability to schedule two or more children at the same time.  This will save you a lot of hours in driving!
