The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond,  to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at kathy.signorino@oac.ohio.gov or 614-728-6140 or Katie Davis, artist programs coordinator, at katie.davis@oac.ohio.gov or 614-728-4421.

Bio

With over 45 years of experience as a teacher of Dalcroze Eurhythmics and a lifelong performer of chamber music, TERRY BOYARSKY specializes in integrating music and movement into the curriculum. Her unique, multifaceted approach evokes deep listening and playful experimentation. Students work together to understand the components of rhythm and sound, develop attention, improve coordination, and challenge the mind.

Her collaborations have spanned the United States, Canada, France, Switzerland, and Venezuela. In 1998, Terry earned a M.A. in Ethnomusicology from Kent State University and has been listed in “Who’s Who” since 2000. Two of her recent articles are “Dalcroze Eurhythmics and the Quick Reaction Exercises” published in the Orff Echo, and “Encouraging Collaboration” published in the Dalcroze Society of America Connections.

Terry frequently presents at national conferences, is a teaching artist with the Kennedy Center’s Ohio State-Based Collaboratives, and is on the Ohio Arts Council Teach Arts roster.  Before the pandemic, she sang with the Cleveland Orchestra Blossom Festival Chorus and Choral Arts Society. Her solo piano program “Classical Expressions of the Folk Tradition” has been received with great acclaim. For the past five years, Terry has taught Vocal Music of Russia and the former USSR at Case Western Reserve University. Since 2007, Terry and Siberian balalaika virtuoso Oleg Kruglyakov have performed throughout North America as Russian Duo.

Artist Statement

I believe that all people are musical – in different ways – with various combinations of rhythm,  pitch, movement, voice, kinesthetics, and emotion.  Living a full and beautiful life depends on learning to listen – to oneself and others, to sound and silence, with ears, body, and heart.  The best way to learn is to engage actively, joyfully, and creatively with the subject matter at hand.
