Zabinski Music Studio is a small, family-run business in downtown Pawtucket, RI, celebrating over ten years of serving RI communities. At Zabinski Music Studio, we believe that music lessons are for everyone, regardless of age, musicality, or any other background.
We believe that first and foremost, music lessons should be FUN and should inspire students to study what they love most about music. Some students seek to become professional musicians someday - and that's awesome! Other students prefer to study music as a hobby that helps them relax, play with friends or just have fun on their own. This is awesome too! We believe the study of music should inspire anyone, regardless of future professional goals.
Esther Zabinski (co-owner, piano & voice instructor) is a pianist, musical director and teacher throughout RI and MA. She has been teaching private piano and singing lessons for over 20 years. Esther is certified in Somatic Voicework, a member of the Piano Teacher's Guild (area chairperson), and a member of the Handbell Musicians Association. She teaches all levels of piano and singing students in a variety of genres including classical, jazz, rock and musical theater. Previous and current students have been accepted to college and university music programs as well as become professional piano players and singers. Esther also works with various theater groups as a musical director, most recently with Trinity Repertory on A Christmas Carol and Little Shop of Horrors. In addition to this, Esther is the music minister at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Foxboro.
Rebekah Zabinski (co-owner, piano & violin instructor) is a fiddle and piano player who has also been known to dust off her bassoon when the mood hits. She came to teaching music after spending her childhood playing in different bands and orchestras. After pretending that music was not her calling and instead pursuing business management, Rebekah finally came to her senses when she and Esther decided to open Zabinski Music Studio in 2010. She has since honed her teaching skills and provides lessons in piano and violin as well as running the studio's business activities. She can be found fiddling in the community (often bringing her students along for extra performance experience) as well as leading a weekly sing-a-long at the toy store Henry Bear's Park in Providence.
Ben Zabinski (piano and voice instructor) has been playing piano and singing since before he could read. Brought up in a very musical family, he studied Psychology at Clark University while singing in regional choruses. He brings his experience in psychology to teaching students in voice and piano, using classical, jazz, musicals, pop songs, and more. Ben's goal is to make sure his students have an experience that is fun, rewarding, and marked by steady progress. When he is not teaching, you can find him singing with the Greater Milford Community Chorus.
Brian Grochowski (guitar, bass & ukulele instructor) spent much of his career playing in pit orchestras for various theatrical companies. He has most recently played for Trinity Rep in A Christmas Carol. Other gigs include Broadway in Jersey Boys & Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, Off-Broadway in Jacques Brel, Toxic Avenger, Gone Missing, See Rock City & Sphinx Winx. He has toured productions of Copacabana, Grease, Fame (China), Will Rogers Follies and A Chorus Line. Brian is a private instructor in guitar, bass and ukulele and teaches rock band classes at Zabinski Music Studio.
