Our Story and Bios

Our vision

…for developing a great piano method led us to years of research, writing materials, practical applications of sensory integration concepts and conveying our own skills as concert pianists for our students.

We questioned the status quo and continue to discover better ways to teach. Teaching is a dynamic and creative process!

A sought after husband and wife team, pianists Dr. Francisco Silva, DMA and Mireille Gradeff Silva, MM are active performing and recording artists that teach in East Cobb, Marietta, Georgia.

They have two sons, ages 19 and 17 who are also musicians.

Their son Dorian, a Cello Performance major at Kennesaw State University, joined them at the studios a year ago and is teaching cello lessons!

“And one may ask: how many Brazilian pianists would attempt a program so incredibly demanding and yet play it so well?…It is the right time to quote the Latin phrase: Plaudite, sonat tuba! – Applaud, sound the trumpet!”
