Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

I have been teaching many instruments to all age groups for over 17 years. I have a lot of diverse musical experience in performing, singing, playing many instruments, recording, songwriting, and teaching. My Bachelor of Music Degree is from Heidelberg University with an emphasis in percussion and music business. I have been mostly a working musician since I graduated from college, so my knowledge comes not only from books, but also from real life work in the music field.

I am also a Board Certified Music Therapist and am experienced in teaching adapted music lessons to those with unique needs. For example, I am currently teaching drum set to a young student with cognitive and auditory impairments. I also have taught older adults to play piano or guitar who are interested in learning to play their favorite songs for fun in a short amount of time.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fairly laid back teacher that wants the student to enjoy the lessons (music is about having fun). I do, however expect my students to practice consistently and come back to the next lesson ready to learn more. I regularly assess my students progress, how they feel about where they are as a musician, and where they are headed. My curriculum varies depending on the instrument I am teaching, but on average I will use books along with some handouts of my own for the lessons. After 6 months in lessons with me you will have a basic understanding and background in music theory, know the basic skills it takes to play your instrument and will be having fun playing some songs you've been longing to play.

*** Studio Equipment ***
1) Music studio room w/ piano, guitars, bass, drum set, ukulele, and seating for parents

2) Prior reserved and lesson studio, piano, guitar, bass, drum set, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I have experience teaching all ages and abilities.

I do very well with younger children on up through adult students who want to learn to play songs on the acoustic guitar. I was a percussion major in college so I can teach many levels of percussion or drum set. I also have been playing piano since the age of 7 and can take students quite far in levels of piano and theory. I have written, produced and engineered my own original songs into a CD so I can easily teach songwriting and recording.

Ryan H. Cleveland, OH

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

I began singing when I was seven in a school choir. After that, I joined a boy choir in Florida that allowed me to travel all over the United States and Europe, exposing me to many different genres of music. When I entered college, I decided to start training as an opera singer. Since then, I have gained a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a Minor in Theater Arts from the University of Miami (FL) and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music. I have been fortunate to perform extensively and have become passionate about performing. Having recently graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Music, I am dedicated to building a studio in the Cleveland area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Learning to sing should be fun and exciting! It's a personal talent that I love and enjoy and am excited to share that with my students. I teach a classical technique focusing on breath, posture and a natural, healthy sound. From this technique, anyone can sing any genre of music healthily and for a long time. If you want to audition for some big part/company or if you just want to beat your friends in a karaoke competition I'll be happy to help! Piano students will be using technique books, and once a grasp of the fundamentals has been gained, the next step is to work on some basic repertoire of your choice. Learning technique is essential but of no use unless it's applied to music. 

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private studio in a comfortable common area with great acoustics in my home. A keyboard, music, internet access and street parking are all available. I recommend recording lessons but it is not required.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard and some music. If you want to record your lessons I encourage it.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing technique which is the basis for any genre of singing, basic piano technique and classical music theory.

I have trained and arranged music for several choirs and musicians. I have been music administrator for the church I attend for 12 years. I have instructed children's music classes at The Cleveland Clinic Children's Rehabilitation Hospital. I have toured with choirs, soloist, and musicians in the United States and Canada. I play for weddings and am currently on staff as a musician at a Funeral Home.

I am a graduate of Evans Academy of Music in Buffalo, New York. I have studied music at Cuyahoga Community College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have great patience in teaching. The piano and organ lessons start with music theory which is studied each lesson. The lessons develop into learning scales, techniques, developing skills, learning to play songs. The singing lessons start with vocal scales and breathing exercises. Diction, pronunciation, and tone quality are perfected.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio is at a church with separate music rooms for training. Each room has a piano and organ inside and seating is available.

I start with description of notes, meaning of symbols, measures, lines, spaces, learning to read notes, how chords are formed, teach scales and chords, introductory theory, simple sheet music of popular songs. My genres are mainly popular music, jazz, and gospel.

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

I am recent graduate of Music Composition and Theory from Antioch College, and I am a veteran of many bands, having performed in some of the largest venues around the country.

I favor a 'learning through experience' instruction style where my students can gain an in-depth understanding of music through the practice of their instrument. My students will quickly and simply learn the essentials of music theory, an understanding of what musical concepts are right for each situation and why, and the ability to compose and improvise musically while they are gaining the technical abilities and skills to flawlessly perform on their instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students will learn about scale, harmony, and its correct application. I will instruct them to quickly grasp the lay-out of their guitar and how it relates to the geometry of music -and thus they will be able to perform in a many styles of music within a very short period of time. This may sound difficult but it is incredibly simple in practice and can easily be learned by students of all ages! In as short of time as one or two lessons even beginning students will be playing beautiful music!

My curriculum is self-designed, but based on the experiential learning techniques, pioneered by Horace Mann, which he has been educated from. I have taught and studied music around the world, to discover the simple basics of music. Within a few short months each of my students has gained technical strength in playing their instrument and a confident understanding of the foundations of music. This teaches them the ability to write, perform, and improvise in any style of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio: iMac for recording, cabinet Acoustic bass amp, Fender guitar amps, drum set, room for parents to sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a vehicle with room to transport equipment.

*** Specialties ***
rock, rhythm and blues, blues, folk, alternative
