About Me

Are you looking for a teacher that keeps you motivated and excited, who can teach you all the skills of a well rounded musician in a relaxed, friendly environment? Look no further.
I love music! I love playing music , I love composing music, I love studying music, but most of all, I love teaching music! It gives me the feeling of fulfillment like nothing else can.

Born and raised in Brooklyn NY, I started taking piano lessons and at age 11 and at age 14, I got my first guitar and started taking lessons. When I was 16 I started teaching my siblings and friends beginners guitar, while I myself was studying more advanced guitar. I later went to further my studies in music at San Diego Mesa College, where I studied Music theory, Classical Guitar, Piano, Composition and Ear training among other things.
Since moving back to NY I have been teaching, composing and performing music all around. I have taught students of all ages in group and private settings. And I'm currently in the finishing stages of recording an album of original songs featuring many big names in music.
I have also spent three summers teaching woodworking in a Day camp to over 500 children in grades 1-8 each summer.
I love teaching, but more importantly, I love teaching music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Learning music should be fun and exciting! I am a relaxed and patient teacher and enjoy teaching kids and adults of all ages. I am great at simplifying things and making them easy to understand. I work with each student to find their preferred learning style and the pace in which they excel most, in order to reach their maximum potential.
At our first lesson, we'll start by getting to know your musical tastes and aspirations. We'll talk about your goals and what you want to achieve.Then, we'll customize a lesson plan to fit your unique needs and desires, and we'll start to play!
Each lesson, we will record your progress to insure that you are getting most out of each lesson and that you are learning at your desired pace.
Everybody follows a different path, but no matter which path you choose you must start with a strong foundation in fundamentals. I teach my students mostly songs they know in order to keep them excited and motivated, as well as some new songs to open them up to new styles. And I always sprinkle my lessons with easy-to-understand basic music theory. I do this in order to give you a well-rounded music education and the tools and the knowledge to learn songs and write songs on your own.
If you take your lessons seriously and practice I will teach you to be the musician of your dreams in less time than you can imagine!

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.
