Meet Shannon

  • Comfortable with pets

From a very early age I have enjoyed working with children. As the eldest of five, I was often called upon to help with managing needs in the home with my mother. Throughout college I worked as a nanny for two families, the first with three boys between the ages of five and ten, the second with one two year-old boy. After graduating with a bachelors degree in piano performance, I pursued a career as a professional musician and piano teacher while working on the side as a tutor and nanny to two families. The first family had two boys, ages five and eight, the second had girls ages seven and nine, as well as a five year-old boy. In 2015 I spent six weeks in Italy, working as a piano teacher and English-speaking companion for an Italian family with three boys, aged eight, ten and twelve. As a professional Read more musician, I have also worked extensively with children. I currently teach at the NYC children’s chorus preparatory division, managing classes wih students aged three to six. I also work as a private piano and voice teacher with children between the ages of four and eighteen. I enjoy children immensely and find it very easy to relate to them. I am hoping to find a part-time summer situation during the months of June, July, and August. References available upon request.
