BENNINGTON >> Sonatina Enterprises, Inc., also know as Summer Sonatina or the Sonata International Piano Camps, is pleased to announce that Sheila Kearns joined the Sonatina staff as administrative assistant on July 25

As administrative assistant, Sheila will handle all correspondence through email and U.S. Postal Mail to the many inquiries that are made about piano camp whether by nervous adult pianists and/or parents sending their children to piano camp. In addition, the position includes preparing reports and forms, bookkeeping, managing A/R and A/P accounts, invoicing and handling payroll and quarterly tax reports.

It is important for those of you who know Sonatina Enterprises personally, that Sheila has been trained directly and very specifically in this position by well-loved Andrea Lindhardt, who gave 9.5 years to Sonatina but has moved to California to enjoy warmer climes.

Sheila comes to Sonatina with a background in higher education, technology, and library science. Most recently she was the Information Technology Librarian for the Vermont Department of Libraries. Sheila, who was born and raised in Bennington, is pleased to be returning "home." In addition, the prospect of being able to work with so many passionate pianists who are enthusiastic about what they do, she is looking forward to becoming reacquainted with people and places and in the Bennington area.


We are excited and delighted to welcome Sheila to our piano camp business and hope that you have the opportunity to meet her in person, by email at or by phone at 802-442-9197. Sheila can be reached between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on a weekday basis.
