Lauren B. Canton, OH

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.

About Hannah

Hello!
My name is Hannah, and I would love to teach YOU! I am highly motivated, fun-loving, and exceptionally passionate about music-- even more so, having you develop a passion for it as well. I have performed all over the US and even Puerto Rico. With the many years I have studied my various instruments, and also performed with them, I am confident in the abilities I have now and those I continue to develop.
I have a desire for everyone to have some musical knowledge, and an even greater wish for individuals to shift their knowledge into a love for whatever they choose to do musically. I can teach a variety of styles and enjoy the challenge of learning which ways to teach You best.
Overall, I would call myself a "music dork." I love performing, learning, and teaching; and ...

Excellent Opportunity

I feel very grateful to study under Hannah. She cares and wants you to improve. For me to trust my instructor, I need to know that my teacher cares. Hannah can and will adjust, if this is for the betterment of the student.

Hannah has a strong foundation that allows her to relate to students. Her desire to learn motivated me many times in our lessons.

Please do not hesitate, if you wish to improve your craft. Good Luck!!!

A great, down-to-earth teacher with a lot to offer.

I contacted Hannah for summer lessons because as an actor, I was quite insecure about my singing voice. Hannah presented a very friendly and open environment and I found that I was really able to connect with her. She was very accommodating; she really tried to construct her lessons around my needs and my goals, even if they weren't exactly in her field of specialty. I appreciate all the help she's given me, along with the much-needed confidence boost. She's an incredible talent, but she's very down-to-earth, personable, and patient with her students. I will definitely keep in touch.
Keith P. Olmsted Falls, OH

About Keith

I specialize in teaching and performing Country, Blues, and Rock n Roll (to name a few) along with a variety of other musical styles. Because of my experience and educational background, I am able to help my students learn what they "need to know" in order to play the songs they want to play. Students will benefit from my unique teaching methods. I won't waste any time learning things that don't apply to your personalized objectives. You tell me what you want to be able to do and I will teach you what you need to know to get there.

Here is some more information about my experience and educational background.

I've been a working musician almost my entire adult life. I’m a student of the guitar as well as a teacher.
Here is a little about my ...

Enthusiastic presentation of music theory, concepts, and practice. Empathetic and patient, Keith has taken the time necessary to learn my taste in music, goals, in music, and purpose for pursuing music. A comfortable studio in his home has proven to be a positive learning environment. He also has introduced multiple styles of play to inspire me to explore expanding myself with the guitar.
It was required that a college syllabus was to be followed to meet credit award. Keith was able to instruct guitar in a manner which allowed this student to retain an interest, expand desire, and maintain discipline necessary to continue playing. By integrating music theory and notation into practice, Keith was able to clarify expected requirements to meet the demands of a college syllabus. Utilizing computer technology, lessons have been enhanced as well. This has also nurtured the continued learning desire. I would recommend Keith as an instructor to accelerate anyone's ability to play the guitar.

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!

Jamie is an excellent teacher

jamie is a very patient teacher but also strict with fingering and correct bow hold. She explains new things very clearly and she has a very friendly attitude. I love learning with her because she gives me very good feedback and she's really encouraging. I think anyone would see themselves improve a lot with Jamie's teaching style. I look forward to my lesson every week. She doesn't get upset if i didn't get to practice enough but, instead she explains how to practice scales and fingering over and over so that it will be easier....she makes it fun to play the violin! Great teacher!

About Sarah

These are not your grandma's piano lessons! Times have changed and so has teaching. Young students will be introduced to the piano, music and rhythm with many different activities. Older students will be encouraged to set goals and challenge themselves, with an emphasis on learning to play independently.

It's important for students of all ages to be playing music they're interested in. I teach all styles, including pop music, movie music, classical music and basic jazz.

I'm also offering Wunderkeys lessons. These are piano lessons specifically geared towards preschoolers age 3-5. They learn music, math and more. To learn more about the Wunderkeys program, visit wunderkeys.com

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.

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 ...
