Suzuki Violin, Piano and Group Classes
Pam Hatley of Joyful Sounds, San Jose offers music to children 3 years old through adults!
Her style of teaching is fun, caring and creative. "I love building up my student's confidence which allows them to soar with their music!" She offers group and private lessons in San Jose off The Alameda (1100 Shasta Ave.)
I love to nurture children. One of my passions is to introduce music to children at a young age so they'll carry that love the rest of their lives. Whether that means through a group class, private violin or piano, my desire is for them to embrace the love and discipline of music which builds character, confidence and self-esteem.
Pam Hatley- Owner/teacher
I received my B.A. Degree in music to become a music teacher while specializing in violin from CSUDH. I am a Suzuki Certified Violin Teacher and also incorporate philosophies from Mimi Zweig and other trainers. I also love teaching piano to children and adults!
In 2010 I attended a year-long weekly workshop on piano techniques from acclaimed Korean pianist and trainer Eulsun Rust and her husband, composer, author and pianist, Terrence Rust at Sherman Clay Pianos in Santa Clara. I also taught violin, piano and group classes at The Music Place from 2008-2012.
My non-music credentials include BS degrees from WIliam Jessup University (formerly San Jose Bible College) in Bible and Theology and Christian Leadership. I became a licensed children's pastor continuing my teaching of children but adjusted my focus to supporting families.
I teach with the whole person in mind. I am interested in helping your child gain confidence as well as discover his/her own musical gifts.and creativity.
My 23 years experience in teaching and leadership roles have contributed to my achieving these goals with my students.
