Elaine Silbereis

I have enjoyed a career as a pianist, organist, and devoted teacher. I hold advanced performance degrees in both piano and organ performance from the College Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati. My students regularly and successfully participate in local, national, and international competitions; they consistently attain high marks on their yearly RCM exams. Many have performed in Carnegie Hall as recipients of the RCM Certificate of Excellence. I enjoy a large studio of students in my home in West Hartford and the Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, CT. I am past president of Hartford a music Teachers Alliance, and the Founding Director of the Connecticut Bach Festival and Competition.
