Mary Tokarski

Honorary Director 2015!

Mary is a treasured performer, beloved instructor, author, and friend to all. Mary has set the bar high for decades. She performs both nationally and internationally as a soloist, with symphony orchestras, with string quartets and as a member of The 'K' Trio. Mary has released two solo CDs, “Music with Mary . . . with My Friends!” and “Music with Mary . . . for My Friends!” – both of which received international acclaim. Mary is also a published author and has done much to promote music in early childhood – carrying the accordion forward to new generations!

For 20 years Mary served as Director of Music Education at the Tokarski Music Center in North Haven, Connecticut. Along with teaching piano and accordion at her home in Northford, Connecticut, Mary travels extensively presenting Workshops and Master Classes on musical excellence, coaching privately, and as a sought-after adjudicator for national and international juries. She also served for many years as a Music Educator in the North Haven Department of Education's Early Childhood Development Program at Green Acres Elementary School.

You will find that Mary is not only extremely knowledgeable but she has a willingness to share.  Make sure to check out one of her exciting classes.  We will have the honor of hearing Mary perform at the Tuesday evening concert!

Classes

"Ask Mary"
Time set aside – Just for YOU!  Bring your questions, concerns and difficulties to the workshop – bring your accordion too!  We will figure out ways to “fix” all the problems together!  No problem too small, no problem too big . . . we will find a solution – together!
  Wednesday 10:00 – 10:50 Room B  
Everyone’s A Teacher
Each of us is a teacher in some way or another . . . we teach our children, our families, our friends, our co-workers . . . we'll explore the kind of teacher YOU are, and work on ways to apply the skills you already have to help others appreciate music . . . and the accordion!
