Miss. Emily M. Colucci
I graduated from Molloy College, in Rockville Centre, New York, in May 2015, where I earned my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Music. I am now in Graduate school at the University of Rhode Island, where I am studying Library and Information Studies. My intent has been to combine both disciplines i.e. music and Library and Information Science, in hopes of becoming a Music Librarian. I intend to graduate in May of this year (2017). I currently work at the Community of College Rhode Island Library as a part-time circulation assistant and supervisor of student aids. This spring, I am also interning at the Orwig Music Library at Brown University, with the Performing Arts Librarian.
I was a Suzuki student for 10 years, and have been playing classical guitar for a total of 18 years. In addition to hoping to become a Music Librarian in the academic music library setting, I would also like to become a Suzuki guitar teacher with the hope of working with children and adults with special needs. I played recorder for 7 years. I currently do not teach it, however, I hope to get my Suzkuki registration in recorder as well.
I have Mild Ataxic Cerebral Palsy as well as minor vision and learning disabilities. I have experienced first hand through the patience of my teachers and parents that the Suzuki method was the perfect path that allowed me to go at my own pace, and gave me the belief that truly ” Every Child Can”. Before entering college, I completed book 7 of the Suzuki Guitar Method. I am registered to teach Book 1 and Book 2 of the method. I took Every Child Can as well as did an apprenticeship with Mychal Gendron in Rhode Island at the East Providence Music School in 2010. I took Book 2 training with MaryLou Roberts at the University of Hartford, Connecticut in 2012. I plan to train in future books.
