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.

Megan S. Rochester, NY

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

I have been a lifelong music student, learning piano from a young age and moving on to french horn, voice, guitar, mandolin, and percussion. As a piano teacher with five years of teaching experience for beginner to intermediate students I chose to obtain a Bachelors Degree in Music followed by a Masters degree in Music Therapy. I enjoy helping people of all ages and levels of skill follow their dream to learn a musical instrument. In my free time I learn to sing and play my favorite songs on guitar and improvise and write music with my friends.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your music teacher it is my job to help you realize your goals in learning music. Depending on what pace you would like to go or what end result you would like to achieve, we will work together to develop the arc of our lessons. I like to have fun while learning and have lots of creative ways to get though the frustrating or tricky parts.

For beginners, I like to start with the Alfred Piano Series, using the books as a guide to learn how to read music, keep a steady rhythm, and navigate music theory. With practice, after 3 months a student will be confident in these basic skills. After 6 months the student will be playing full-length songs using their music.

When a student moves into the intermediate stages, we can choose pieces from composers that focus on technique and expression, exploring a new range of musical skills. Together we can begin to work on improvising, ear training and sight-reading.

Students that are interested in Song-writing and have intermediate skills on their instrument of choice can learn from my experience of writing many original songs in a variety of styles including folk, ballad, children's, R&B and pop.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide materials such as educational manipulative's (flashcards, visuals, etc.), a metronome, standard quality recording equipment, some music books (available on a loan basis if necessary), and necessary bookkeeping devices.

Students are expected to provide a working, tuned instrument and a lesson notebook.

*** Specialties ***
Alfred Piano Library, classical methods and genres, some experience in the Orff method, adaptive techniques

Keith S. Fairport, NY

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Classical Guitar, Flute, Guitar, Music Theory, Oboe, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

I have a master's degree in musical education. My main instrument is guitar, and I have played in rock groups, studied classical guitar with a student of Pepe Romero, and am a solid blues player. Receiving my NYS teaching certificate has allowed me to teach band and lessons in public and private schools for twelve years. I have taught most band instruments in these settings, as well as a beginning guitar class and a guitar ensemble. In my younger years, and while in college studying music, I have developed great piano skills as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will cater to your musical taste while teaching technique and theory. You will be led through the skills of noted reading, chord fingerings, scale shapes and their application, while learning music you like in a structured lesson. I keep things laid back and humorous as lessons should be something to look forward to, not another chore.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Finished basement: guitars, chairs, stands, amps

Living room: piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide my own instrument, if I have the particular one, staff paper for writing anything down.

They would provide their instrument, any lesson books, instrument supplies (reeds, oils, etc.) and a stand (if at their house).

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: beg to adv
Piano and sax: beg to inter

I am a guitarist who specializes in rock and blues. I have classical guitar training at the college level. I have taught band methods for the past 10 years.
