"We had to move because of our reputation
over the past ten years," said Sheri Nocelli, who handles the
administrative side while husband Lucien, a professional musician, oversees the
musical side. "Word of mouth is so huge. Everybody loves it and tells
all their friends and I never have room. I've had a perpetual waiting list
for a long time, so it's kind of cool now -- I can get people in."
The new building has four stylishly
decorated music studios where teachers will give private half-hour voice,
piano, and guitar lessons to a current roster of about 300 artists ranging from
Kindergarteners to seniors.
There is a playroom for siblings, and lots of
parking, and room to grow. Going forward, the Nocellis hope to offer drum
and string instrument lessons.
And of course, they are preparing another
concert at the Middletown Arts Center of the Lincroft Music All-Stars, an
invitation-only group. See videos of their performance on their webpage.
