About Me

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own guitar or mandolin for lessons, but piano and drum students must have their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

Shannon C. New York, NY

Subjects Taught

Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

My name is Shannon, and I have been teaching and coaching kids and
adults in music and musicianship for over six years. I have a Bachelors
of Music in composition and a Masters of Music in music theory. I have
trained and performed in New York, New Jersey, Italy and Switzerland, as
a pianist, composer and soprano. I love children and have worked with
children and young adults with all manner of developmental and learning
disabilities. I believe that every musician deserves to have rigor and
polish--but I also believe that the process of polishing and rigorous
work doesn't have to be painful or discouraging. I believe that anyone
can be musical, and that bringing a person to their full musicality is a
beautiful gift for both student and teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are tailored entirely to a student's needs, expectations and
learning style. I draw from a number of pedagogies, from the French
Conservatory method to old Italian solfegio methods to Kodaly. But I
believe that students learn best when they are presented with
information in a way that fits their learning style, and because of
this, every lesson is different. I do not believe that busy work or
excessive homework is valuable, but I do believe in cultivating good,
useful habits outside lesson time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a baby grand piano in my studio space, as well as plenty of space, music stands and relevant literature.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students wishing to study voice and piano in their own homes should have a suitable keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
I have an extremely flexible and varied methodology, which draws from
the French Conservatory method, various methods such as those devised by
Hindemith, Kodaly, Bartok and Edlund. For vocal training I draw from
many reliable Italian methods, including Vaccai and Marchesi.

As a featured performer at the GreyFox Bluegrass Festival 2013 in NY, he played with premier Roots musicians Matt Glaser, Joe Walsh and Matt Munisteri.

John's fretboard stylings incorporate a plethora of acoustic and traditional musical streaming, including from traditional to contemporary jazz, American Roots, Celtic, Broadway and big band. His work with numerous artists catalogs can be heard internationally and his concert work is not to be missed.

I have been teaching worldwide (Sweden, South Korea, New Zealand, USA) for multiple years and have taught young children, high school music perspective students, business professionals and college students. I'm down to earth type of person and I really do care everyone beyond just being a student.

I specialize in jazz, blues, singer-songwriting style, R&B and Americana music(bluegrass, country, folk, celtic, old time) on many different instruments.

Depends on what you want, I have a lot of materials that I have collected through out the years with teaching different situations. For example you are a starter with no knowledge on guitar but want to accompany yourself at local open mics or you might wanna shred some dirty blues. Contact me.
