DIEGO BUSSENIUS


BASS / PIANO / GUITAR / PRODUCTION

    I began my interest in music during elementary school where I started playing the French horn. Since then music has played a vital role in my life, from playing in bands in high school to starting my own music studio while studying at Berklee. Technology plays an important role in how I connect with my students and relate our lessons to contemporary music.

JENNIFER FISCHER


MUSIC THERAPY / VOICE / PIANO / SONGWRITING

Music has been a part of my life since I began taking piano and voice lessons at 7 years old. Throughout high school and college, I picked up guitar, ukulele, bass, began songwriting, and sang in bands, choir, and in theater. I graduated from Berklee in 2014 with a degree in Music Therapy, and have since worked with people of all ages and abilities, from young children to those in Hospice care. When I'm not teaching, I can be found playing regular shows at Sidewalk Cafe in NYC. Music has helped shape me into the person I am, and I aspire to pass that passion along to my students.

Playing music with others is a big step in a musician's development. Being able to communicate musically and improvise in a group setting is a skill that takes practice, but can be one of the most rewarding aspects of music.

BROOKE SLEMMER


MUSIC THERAPY / VOICE / PIANO

I've been making music my whole life, starting with choral singing at age 9. Since then I've picked up trumpet, bass, guitar, piano, ukulele, songwriting, arranging, and singing in punk bands and jazz groups. At Berklee I discovered music therapy and found my calling. I went on to get my Masters in music therapy at Colorado State, and then designed our therapy program at So.i.Heard. I write my own music to de-stress and process emotions, and I sing in a choir called Choral Chameleon (www.choralchameleon.com) to challenge myself as a musician and exercise the music theory nerd inside me! Music keeps me sane and organized, and it feeds my soul to share it with people of all ages and abilities.
