About Lauren

I graduated from Grove City College in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, concentration in flute. I taught music for 2 years at a private Christian school, grades preschool through 8th grade. I taught general music classes, as well as flute and piano lessons. I also served as the director of the elementary play and the director of the middle school musical.
As a teacher, it is my goal to reach every student in unique ways, so that they may realize their potential and develop a passion for music. I hope to help students discover that music may exist as a hobby, but is also a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Excellent Teacher

My 7 year old is taking piano lesson for the first time with Lauren this year. Over the past few months, she has excelled tremendously. My husband and I are amazed at how good she has become. Lauren is a great instructor. She is patient and provides us with great feedback on my child's progress. We are looking forward to her upcoming recital!

I've had three lessons with Jamie, and so far so good! I am a beginner and she explains things very well, is patient, and flexible based on both my strengths and weaknesses. I was very nervous going into lessons, not having touched a musical instrument in 16 years, but Jamie quickly made me feel comfortable and I enjoy my time with her. I expect to be able to write an equally positive review after having had months of lessons with her.

I definitely recommend Jamie!

Learning Viola with Jamie is very enjoyable because she is patient and encouraging. She gives me the right amount of work to practice, and I find myself making progress each week. As a teacher, Jamie also knows well about the instrument and playing techniques. Believe me, you will improve a lot while having fun!

I recommend Phillip as a guitar teacher.

Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.

About Graham

I am a fourth-year Piano Performance major at The University of Akron. I am currently studying with Philip Thomson, and my past teachers include Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and the late Eugene Mancini. I have experience teaching six-year-olds, retirees, and those in between. I am patient, encouraging, and very passionate about music.

I am available to teach in the student's home or online. It may be possible to have lessons at the church where I am Director of Music.

Piano studies overview:

You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music might sound. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and should not be overly thought, but I will explain ...

I took lessons with Anthony for more than a year as a complete beginner. His teaching style was responsive to my level of experience (zero at the time), and area(s) of interest. I thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons and would highly recommend him as a teacher. He helped to expand my creativity and boldness. I even started transposing music that I had heard so that they can be used in lessons. We started getting into music theory - which was so much fun because he made it very accessible. He is an amazing drummer, good-natured, and very knowledgeable & passionate about percussion.

I began playing drums at age 32. My wife found Anthony by calling local music stores and he came highly recommended. I was a little taken back that I was getting lessons from a 18 year old kid, but wow, he did not disappoint. I took lessons for 4 years with him before he moved to New York, and when he moved back, I began back with him. He also began teaching my then 7 year old son. We both loved working with him. He took the time to make sure you understood what he was teaching and went above the protocol of professionalism. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants the detailed fundamentals of drumming, and the caring nature of your well being in percussion. I give him 10 stars...5 from me and 5 from my son Kyle! Rock on!

I first started taking lessons when I was 13. Anthony was my first and only legitimate teacher (I later tried another and was disappointed). He teaches every student at their own pace and based on how much effort they choose to put into learning their instrument. During times when I was getting lazy he even sat me down and spent part of the lesson just motivating me to get more out of lessons by investing more time practicing; I'll never forget it. Anthony truly taught me everything I knew.

Fast forward: I now drum for the electronic rock/EDM band Day Method which has been scouted by the manager for Guns and Roses, the tour manager for U2, and the manager for Trans Siberian Orchestra. I have performed for tens of thousands of people over the last 10 years, played well over 100 concerts, and am moving to LA in a few months to pursue a record deal. The take away? Whatever your dreams or aspirations, they aren't out of reach and Anthony can give you the tools you need to get you there...Keep rocking!
