Poirier Studio of Music is comprised of many wonderful and talented students. They're all ages, play many different instruments, and have different goals in music and life. What they have in common is joy in playing their instruments, and drive to be the best they can be. You can hear them in talent shows, nursing homes, their churches, and at the studio's recitals every November and May.
Poirier Studio of Music is an environment where you're free to create music without fear of sounding bad or pressure to compete. Come in anytime and talk to us! We'd love to discuss what musical training you've already had and your goals--whether they're to turn pro or just enjoy music for the rest of your life.
Ms. Abigail grew up playing piano and violin, and as the daughter of a music teacher and oldest child in her family and circle of friends, began teaching almost as soon as she began playing. She added flute at age 15, guitar at age 21, and multiple other stringed instruments since then.
She firmly believes that reading music and playing by ear are not contradictory abilities, and that they can in fact reinforce each other. She strives to help each student reach his or her own potential, and nurture a life-long love of music.
There are three other things to know:
1. Ms. Abigail's mother, the original founder of Poirier Studio of Music, passed away in 2000. Jane Poirier was a passionate learner, inspiring teacher, and dedicated mother who is greatly missed.
2. Ms. Abigail was homeschooled K-10 and finished high school at a tiny (there were 9 students) Christian school. For this education she is deeply grateful.
3. She loves riding motorcycles. Her current bike is a Yamaha FJR1300 and she's been privileged to ride in most of the lower 48 states with her church's motorcycle group.
