Sheila Bazleh

Sheila Bazleh - Co-Founder

Sheila Bazleh studied Piano Performance at The Royal Academy of Music in London, and later Music Composition at USC with David Raksin. Early in her piano teaching career, Sheila felt a gap in systematic piano literature for beginners and children, so she began composing pieces for her students on an as-needed basis. Eventually, she put her compositions together to form the foundation of her own piano method. After meeting her husband Aleksey Nikolsky, they combined their approaches to form the Synergo Music Method, a unique idiomatic approach to teaching piano. Sheila is also an amateur painter, specializing in portraits. Sheila is responsible for overseeing the artistic and visual components of Braavo's projects.
