Ms. Conforti holds a Master of Business Administration Degree (MBA), as well, and has been an Adjunct College Professor at Manatee Community College in Bradenton, FL and Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, AZ.
Her lesson plan includes the study of:

- Ear Training (Aural practice to play by ear);
- Sight-Playing (Training to read music from first-sight);
- Creativity (Creating melodic sounds and harmonies through imagination).
Ms. Conforti says, "It is my desire to encourage students to play the Piano to the best of their abilities and to enjoy every minute of playing and practicing. The skills learned in Piano can be transferred to many other disciplines; sports, languages, computer technology, mathematics, and technical training. In addition, learning to play the Piano has been proven to develop self-confidence."
