About Tyanna

Music is one of the biggest, most important things in my life! I love how music allows me to express myself. A lot of joy is brought to people through music. I strive to change lives for the better through singing and teaching others how to be great singers!

I have been teaching for about 7 years, but performing for 20. As a performer, I believe I am able to provide insight from both teacher's and performer's standpoints. I have been in the same position as my students so I am able to relate.

About David

David discovered his love for music early on at the age of seven with the musical/movie: The Sound of Music. He and his siblings would entertain their babysitter by acting out the entire musical - singing and dancing along with the soundtrack. To make it even more fun, they would sometimes speed up the vinyl record and perform in extra-fast mode! (And that was way before 'Wii - Just Dance!')

He vividly remembers his first real musical instruction back in elementary school:
“Everyone in 4th Grade was given a Recorder to learn how to play 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star'. When the music teacher had the class play together, she noticed that I wasn't looking down at my music booklet as I played, since I was 'playing by ear'. Not only was ...

You can not find a better guitar instructor!

I have had innumerable music instructors over the course of many years, including group and now individual guitar lessons with David. Without reservation, in all regards he is the best I have had. His knowledge of music and ability to teach, to all ages and levels, are extraordinary. I frequently recommend him to others with enthusiasm and without qualification. In a nutshell: You could not find a better guitar instructor.

"What can I say about Courtney? Beautiful person. Beautiful instrument. She has, hands down, one of the most amazing voices I have ever heard in my life. She knows her instrument intimately and intricately. Courtney's ear is amazing. Her ability to nail a melody, improvise it and navigate through changes is nothing less than astounding. She is truly a gifted, well versed and educated musician. Her composition and arranging speak to that as well. I was in awe as I sat and listened to her compositions at her graduate recital. Simply amazing. Great musician. Great person."

Matt M. Raleigh, NC

I have played in over 50 bands in his career and has played drums, piano, sung, and beatboxed for crowds across the country. I've learned from the experience the tricks to put together a confident performance (fake it til you make it!) and I can guide students in constructing a good set of music.

About Matt

At heart, I'm a rock-nerd.

But the beautiful thing about music and especially music theory is that you start to realize that every composer, be it Bach or The Beastie Boys, uses the same tricks.

I can teach an arpeggio on piano and play a bit of a Beethoven song and then switch right to a Muse song and hear that exact same lick. With drums, I can teach a rudiment (the building blocks of percussion) and then play a Nirvana song back to back with a concerto and hear the exact same pattern played on the snare. It's all the same, in the best way. And at the risk of sounding corny, I think it speaks to the universal spirit of music.

TEACHING
As a performer, soloist and active chamber musician, and as a pedagogue, I provide private lessons to any individual interested in the art of music, education, and the good times. My teaching welcomes individuals from the youngest to college students. My primary instrument is the Viola, and simultaneously I focus on the instruction of the Violin, and the early and beginning studies of the piano. I have great experience as master class teacher, sectional leader, group teaching, and individual or one-in-one pioneer.

METHODOLOGIES
About the teaching methods used, I basically like to approach the beginner student through the methods of Suzuki, which is a very efficient and didactic method most pedagogues uses today. This one is a clear method that demands from the student and it simultaneous engages the interaction and participation of their parents, family, friends, and their community as well. In other occasions, it is most common that I would ...
