Brooklyn’s Conservatory of Music
welcomed the beautiful melodies to flow through its doors ten years ago. We began our musical passage with piano lessons. A few years after, we were privileged to introduce violin, cello, and voice lessons. Our insightful instructors aide you to sight read music and how to apply proper techniques. In addition, all students will participate in a Summer and Fall recital.
Rebekah is a well versed Violin instructor. It was through a private instructor that she found her rhythm and passage to her own beat. She then studied at West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster. Rebekah has been playing and performing for more than seventeen years.
Throughout the years, Rebekah has joyously engaged in orchestras, solo and group performances. She has had the privilege to work with students of all ages and walks of life. In fact, Rebekah’s age appropriate teaching methods are key to her students melodic journey.
The Brooklyn Conservatory of Music is proud to introduce Miyuki Harley. She is the newest Piano and Vocal teacher added to our Faculty. Her experience and Passion for Music began very early , at the young age 5 and continued into high school where her solid foundation in Classical Music, piano and voice, made her a highly sought after player. Miyuki was known to play the hard stuff, the music of jazz, prog rock and swing. Her talent won her invitations to sit in with popular artists of the day. With her formal education complete she embarked on a journey that would allow her to travel extensively, playing in foreign countries at historical events such as the opening of the Berlin Wall. She has recorded with Kenny Loggins and performed at the highest levels of the Christian Music World. She found time to record , coproduce and write her own collection of original music.

Music Therapy….. is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals…. Music therapy also provides avenues for communication that can be helpful to those who find it difficult to express themselves in words. – “American Music Therapy Association”
During her senior year at CSUCI, Sarah Rivera along with her co-partner Caressa Suarez, have teamed up together to bring the joy of music to our elderly community living within AlmaVia of Camarillo.
Both Sarah and Caressa would like to work in the memory care unit and use Sunday school songs as well as nursery rhymes in the hopes that these childhood tunes will help bring comfort to the seniors with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. In the regular facility, we would like to perform songs from the 1930’s and 1940’s, in order to bring back some happy memories that people would have associated with these songs. Caressa and Sarah also plan to apply their musical abilities by performing at AlmaVia, which they hope will help to have a therapeutic impact on the residents.
Sarah will also be providing an opportunity for some of her students to perform for others by giving the gift of music to the community. By doing this she hopes to help her students in igniting their passion for music and music performance.
The preliminary goal or purpose of this project is to assess the effectiveness or power of music therapy on the targeted population. We believe that music therapy is a clinical and evidence-based process that can help facilitate stress relief to treat various mental, emotional, and behavioral health challenges. The senior population is susceptible to mental problems and memory loss. Accordingly, this project can use music therapy to address various physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of the elderly within AlmaVia. We hope to create a unique environment that can facilitate positive and cohesive interaction and help build relationships between the residents of Alma Via.
