HELLO EVERYBODY


My name is Feryal and I am a mother of two beloved girls.

I am a registered Music Together Teacher as well as the Center Director of Music4Kids Ankara Music Together.

I was born in Bulgaria where I started my formal piano education with Ahter Destan. After moving to Turkey, I continued my Music Education at Istanbul Anatolian Fine Arts High School.

Then I moved to Ankara for my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Education at Gazi University, where I was blessed to study piano with pianist–composer Mehmet Okonsar who introduced me the Suzuki Piano Method. During and after my university years I attended many Piano Master classes and workshops in Turkey and abroad.I also have been giving private piano and guitar lessons since 1995.
I was impressed to see how Suzuki Method lively effects the music love on the young minds and little fingers. This effect on little children brought me to become a registered Suzuki Piano Teacher in 2000.

I worked as a music teacher at British Embassy School Ankara/BESA, from 2001-2010. I also had experienced to work as a music teacher in Ankara English Preschool/Yuva İlkadım and International Yasemin Preschool.

After my second daughter’s pregnancy in 2011, I started to research for the very early and early music programs and I was amazed of the concept of Music Together and how it is supporting kids’ development in musical and movement skills while offering fun time to their grown-ups. My formal music education allowed me to fully enjoy the Music Together philosophy and grasp the great essence of it.

Today, I am working as a Year 6 Teaching Assistant at BESA and continue to teach private piano and guitar lessons. I am just thrilled to be your catalyst to the Music Together world and look forward to having you in my classes!

If you acknowledge the importance of music and movement for children in their early years, join us at our Music4Kids Ankara Music Together Center and let the little ones and yourself have fun!!!

Keep Making Music Together!
