Chris T. Rochester, NY

Subjects Taught

Drum, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Percussion, Piano

About Me

Since arriving in Rochester, NY in 2007, Chris T. has become one of the areas most in-demand drummers. A willingness to integrate a myriad of different styles with dedicated authenticity has provided Chris with long-standing musical relationships with groups as diverse as The Po‚¬Ä¬ô Boys Brass Band (funk/rock), the Crescent City Connection (traditional swing dance), Madeline Forster (American songbook), and Cash Back (country). Always an active collaborator, Chris can be heard investigating creative new territory with bassist and singer and bassist Katie Ernst, the Dave Rivello Ensemble, the New Energy Jazz Orchestra, and The Mighty High and Dry.
Since the group's formation in 2009, Chris¬Ä¬ô group Quintopus has been an outlet for original creative music and instrumental covers of artists including Bjork, Cibo Matto, and Radiohead. Signing to ears&eyes Records in 2010, Quintopus' debut album ‚¬Ä¬ú‚¬Ä¶incorporates so many influences into a brew that is steeped in traditions but also has a shot of rock-n-roll sensibility.¬Ä¬Ě
A graduate of the Eastman School of Music (MM €™09) and Whitworth University (BA 05) Chris has been driven to provide practical music education to his community as an individual and group instructor. With recent group workshop tours in Arizona, Washington, Pennsylvania, and New York, Chris intends to build upon those experiences and expand access of to the arts in other communities, nation-wide. Also an active community organizer, Chris has worked with the Rochester Freelance Musician Forum, Rochester Musicians Local 66, and the Institute for Creative Music (a non-profit co-run with trombonist Nick Finzer).

*** Lesson Details ***
Before starting any formal teaching, I like to do a short interview with the student to get antiquated and learn about their musical preferences. This helps to shape the structure of a semester so that we're working towards goals that we both want you to accomplish.

You can expect to balance technique (beginner to advanced) with learning grooves, solos, exercises, and full drum parts. Recording projects in my home studio also help us work on getting a professional sound and mix from the drums and evaluate your performance constructively.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Sound-proofed basement two drum sets, keyboards, recording equipment seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide instructional handouts. Students should have their own drum set/percussion equipment, along with the appropriate sticks, brushes, and mallets. There will also be a couple of required books (depending on the skill level)

*** Specialties ***
Drum Set, all styles, band leading

John M. Rochester, NY

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Organ, Piano

About Me

John is an Organist, Harpsichordist, and Pianist just completed a Master's degree at the Eastman School of Music in the organ studio of William Porter. He graduated from Eastman with a Bachelor of Music in Organ and Historical Keyboards in 2011 as a student of David Higgs. At Eastman, he has also studied the pedal clavichord and piano technique with Ulrika Davidsson.

As an instructor, John firmly believes that private, one on one music instruction should be tailored to each individual student. His pedagogical approach is different for each student. Everyone learns differently. There is just not one way to learn to play an instrument. At the first lesson there will be a discussion on the students goals and interests and different methods of teaching will be discussed with the student (and parents) to decide what the best step forward will be.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are different for each student. The way a lesson is conducted depends on many circumstances. Depending on the goals and age of the student, one can expect lessons to guide a student to achieve the goals which will be discussed in the first few lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baldwin Grand Piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano for Piano Lessons
Organ for Organ Lessons
Music Theory Lessons or Tutoring: Staff Paper and Pencils

*** Specialties ***
Piano: Depending on the Age, Ability, Personality, and Ear, I have used "Adventures in Piano," the Alfred Method, and the Thompson Method. I supplement all of these books with pieces and exercises that the students express interest in.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always start with warm ups for both piano and voice students. I believe musicians are like delicate athletes, who use their fingers/vocal cords to make beautiful sound out of an instrument or a body. It is important to understand to warm up before practice/lesson for their own benefits to keep techniques fresh and healthy.

(For Piano students, scales, little warm up style finger exercises/for voice students, easy scales and vowel exercises, stretching registers)

Then, we tackle the fun stuff (more traditional practices) and after that, I encourage students to bring me or play/sing for me what they love. I love working something different with student who also has passion for different genres of music like light jazz, gospel, pop..etc. I value my students' opinion and encourage them to explore other things to develop themselves as unique, creative musicians.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano or Keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I start with traditional classic music trainings. Basic theories, ear trainings, aural skills with all of my students.

I believe Basic understanding of music is important to everyone.
I specialize mainly in classical, however I am open to anything students want to learn.

Gregg C. Geneva, NY

Subjects Taught

Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

I hold bachelor and masters degrees in composition and have taught at the college level since 1995. As a piano teacher, I teach students of all ages. As a performing pianist, my role is usually to play music for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
While I do not have credentials as a guitarist per se, from ages 13 to 21, I was a serious student of the instrument and had many performances as a classical guitarist, as soloist and ensemble performer.
I prefer to teach composition/songwriting, but will gladly teach music theory, piano, or guitar.
I try to make lessons productive and fun, especially for students who have no design on a professional career, but are prompted to learn by their love of music. For students who may want to attend college and potentially have a professional life in music, we still have fun, but we might be slightly more focused on the productivity side of the equation.
If someone were to ask why students should take lessons with me, I would say that I have not only the academic credentials, but 20 years teaching experience, as well performing/composing experience in a professional capacity outside the walls of academia. - I have received and fulfilled commissions for my work.
Thank you in advance for your interest.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own piano, or guitar, staff paper, pencil, and music software if possible.
