Beth Ann Surapine - About Me


Hello! I am very excited for another great year at St. Gabriel School!  I have been teaching classroom music in the Catholic Schools for over 20 years. I began playing piano at the age of 5 and have been playing ever since....which would be a very  VERY long time.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Piano from the Hartt School of Music...my first love is playing and teaching piano; my second love is teaching music in general.  I am the Director of Music at St. Bernard Church in Enfield, a private piano instructor and a Freelance Accompanist.  Working with children and nurturing their passion, knowledge and love for different types of music is one of my favorite things to do.  Music is a very important part of a child's development and can benefit them on so many levels. I am looking forward to sharing my love of music with them.
