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 his teaching, drawing from the pedagogy of Jean Piaget and John Dewey. He teaches 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.
