Terri Partyka is a life-long music lover and people lover. In elementary school, she decided she wanted to be a percussionist, because of the variety of ways she could make music. The variety thing stuck, because she started adding a variety of musical instruments to her repertoire, including piano, double bass, ukulele and hammered dulcimer. She has played in various bands and orchestras in the Detroit metro area, including the Metropolitan Symphonic Band, and the Macomb Symphony Orchestra. She has been teaching early childhood music and movement since 1998 and Simply Music® piano since 2006. Ms. Terri likes to find ways to keep music fun and enjoyable for her students. She is excited to now offer Kids’ MusicRound® as an integral part of this musical journey. She believes she has found a method of learning music that has not only changed her life, but will also change the lives of her students.
