Warwick — Margaret and Ed Korczynski, owners of the Sussex County Music Workshop, have been teaching piano for more than 30 years in Vernon, N.J. They have now opened a new studio in Warwick at 21 Oakland Ave., and are accepting new students; both children and adults are welcomed. Each year all students are encourage to participate in two annual recitals; one held in the Spring, the other in the Fall of the year. In addition, other recitals are arranged for special occasions: senior solo recitals, or joint recitals. The Korczynskis stressed that while mastering an instrument involves a great deal of work, their aim is to make that work rewarding and enjoyable for each and every student, no matter what age or level. They have seen many of their students go on to successful careers in music. Over the years, their students have participated in a variety of music festivals and competitions, and been awarded many prizes. The Korczynskis are members of the National Guild of Musicians, and Margaret has been coordinating the guild auditions for local students for more than 15 years. As many as 120 local students participate each year in this evaluation, which is organized on a nationwide basis by the University of Texas. The students are evaluated by prominent pianists from the Julliard School, the Manhattan School of Music, and other well known conservatories. The Korczynskis are also members of the North Jersey Piano Teachers Association, which offers scholarship money to graduating seniors who are pursuing music in college. The organization conducts an annual recital, at which the scholarships are awarded. For more information about the school log on to: Or e-mail:
