James T. Lancaster, PA

I was able to graduate all of the core requirements in my sophomore year at Berklee. This allowed me to experience all of Berklee's advanced electives in both music theory and ear training. I experienced Berklee's highest available theory course and graduated with honors.

About James

I graduated with a B.A. in Professional Music from Boston's Berklee College of Music. When I first heard about Berklee, I too thought of warm and sunny Berkeley California and not the frigid winters in Boston. Berklee however, is respected world-wide as the musicians music college. Each year, only 3% of students are able to graduate. Advanced freshman placement accelerated all Berklee core requirements by my sophomore year. An early focus on their Advanced Harmony/Theory and Ear Training electives provided the rare opportunity of experiencing Berklee's highest level courses in both departments. I graduated with Honors in 7 semesters with a cumulative music GPA of 3.6. (Magna Cum Laude). Since graduation, I've been a full-time independent professional musician with over 28 ...

Jim Rocks! I love hanging out every Sunday jamming

I have dabbled with the guitar for a couple of years but never got serious about. This year I made a new years resolution to get serious about it and find a guitar instructor.

I am so happy that I found Jim. He is brilliant with music and is that laid back, rad teacher that you hope to have for guitar.

We are about 5 weeks into lessons and I'm already playing Dead or Alive, Blackbird, Polly, and learning new songs every week. I thought we would be doing "boring" exercises still but he is great at teaching you the basics while keeping it fun.

A+ for Jim. Also, he is extremely flexible.

The only downside is that I wanted him to teach me how to sing Blackbird, but that's not his cup of tea. haha

Thank you!

Hey Jim- I had a GREAT 1st lesson. You went slow enough so that I could understand what was going on but also went a little quicker so we could make the most of the half hour session. The things we worked on were exactly what i was hoping for. I will definitely be back on I feel confident in my "homework" - those darn finger exercises and I have a love hate relationship right now!! Thank you!
Thomas W. Downingtown, PA

I teach both the classical and contemporary methods of music theory, combining the two and drawing on the strengths of both. Students will learn classical Roman numeral analysis while also learning how to build contemporary jazz harmony.

Rosalind H. Coatesville, PA

Having attended Westminster Choir College and taken music theory based classes in highschool, I have had experience with everything from basic theory to music analysis to ear training and more. I have taken practical theory classes and music history/world music classes which have contributed to my understanding of the patterns in and characteristics of a wide variety of musical genres. At Drexel University, as a music therapy masters student, I was expected to improvise and transpose at a moments notice. These experiences have convinced me that it is in the musician's best interests to have a strong foundation of theory knowledge, and I emphasize theory approaches to understanding music in voice, and particularly piano lessons, as I believe this will help the student to better predict and understand an underlying musical structure to a song, helping with his or her reading fluency.

About Rosalind

Hi, my name is Rosalind H. and I began my musical education at the age of ten, when I first started taking lessons. Since that time I have performed professionally as a singer in churches, cafes and at weddings and in venues including the Kimmel Center and Carnegie Hall during my college years with the renowned Westminster Symphonic Choir. After spending a year teaching children and adolescents aged 6-17 voice and piano while completing my Master¬ôs of Arts in Music Therapy at Drexel University, I am now looking to take on private students in Chester County and surrounding areas.

I am a Westminster Choir College '11 Alum† who graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Music, summa cum laude. I am also a Member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and a† ...

Fantastic Teacher

I am not your typical student. I am 45, and male. Im an acomplished guitar player and play in a band. I never had any real training for singing, and had very little control over my voice or really knew how to control it.
Roz has helped me immensely. She is very knowledgeable in music and voice theory, and has very well thought out constructive criticism. She uses a lot of visualization techniques to help with body and breath control. She is patient and understanding and willing to talk through some theory issues, instead of just drilling lessons. Although most of her students are younger, she really thoughtfully catered her lesson to my needs, instead of just trying to apply the same approach to everyone. I would recommend her highly to anyone and will be sending my son for piano lessons!

My grandson is taking piano lessons from Rosalind H. At first I was wondering about the interaction because he's shy; but he looks forward to his lessons and practices diligently. I'm sure it's because of Rosalind's experience and teaching techniques that makes it so enjoyable for him; she's very good with children. I'm so glad she was available!

Best vocal teacher I have had, and I have had a few

I can't help but notice an immense improvement in the quality and control that I have over my voice since I switched from my last voice teacher to Mrs. Hayes. She has helped me improve my posture, breathe control, sound placement, and ease with which I can sing. She has taught me IPA, which allowed me to better understand, pronounce, and sing different vowel sounds comfortably in different languages. She gives such precise instruction that I know that I can only improve even more from now on!

I teach music theory while integrating the concepts into current pieces we are working on.

About Dominic

Music Lessons should be fun! I have been playing music all my life. I share my love of music with my students and tailor each lesson to their specific needs. I also teach music composition. If you ever had that idea for a song, I'll teach you how to develop it.

Joshua S. Lancaster, PA

Musicians who wish to gain a better of understanding how music functions can gain that knowledge by studying music theory. I have taught theory for many years and continue to study the subject myself. Theory is the grammar or music and will exponentially increase the musicianship of a musician when they study this subject.
