Lauren B. Canton, OH

About Lauren

I graduated from Grove City College in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, concentration in flute. I taught music for 2 years at a private Christian school, grades preschool through 8th grade. I taught general music classes, as well as flute and piano lessons. I also served as the director of the elementary play and the director of the middle school musical.
As a teacher, it is my goal to reach every student in unique ways, so that they may realize their potential and develop a passion for music. I hope to help students discover that music may exist as a hobby, but is also a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Great Flute Lessons

My middle-schooler is taking beginning flute lessons with Lauren and is thoroughly enjoying it. She is progressing and has become very comfortable with the instrument. We are pleasantly surprised at how well she is playing!

My 7 year old is taking piano lesson for the first time with Lauren this year. Over the past few months, she has excelled tremendously. My husband and I are amazed at how good she has become. Lauren is a great instructor. She is patient and provides us with great feedback on my child's progress. We are looking forward to her upcoming recital!

I've had three lessons with Jamie, and so far so good! I am a beginner and she explains things very well, is patient, and flexible based on both my strengths and weaknesses. I was very nervous going into lessons, not having touched a musical instrument in 16 years, but Jamie quickly made me feel comfortable and I enjoy my time with her. I expect to be able to write an equally positive review after having had months of lessons with her.

I definitely recommend Jamie!

Learning Viola with Jamie is very enjoyable because she is patient and encouraging. She gives me the right amount of work to practice, and I find myself making progress each week. As a teacher, Jamie also knows well about the instrument and playing techniques. Believe me, you will improve a lot while having fun!

Robin has been an excellent fit for my daughter(age 15). She has been very flexible with my daughter's rehearsal schedule and seems genuinely interested in helping her improve and achieve her goals. My daughter feels comfortable working with Robin and looks forward to her lessons. She is excited about continuing lessons and improving her vocal techniques and skill level.

excellent teacher

Maybe a bit premature after only one lesson, but after speaking with Robin at length over the phone, and being present during my son's first lesson, I must say I'm very impressed with her as my son's instructor. She has a vast portfolio of experience in a wide range of music, highly educated, extremely knowledgeable, and good at instruction. I'm especially excited that she incorporates music theory into the lessons. Highly recommended!

Graham H. Akron, OH

About Graham

I am a fourth-year Piano Performance major at The University of Akron. I am currently studying with Philip Thomson, and my past teachers include Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and the late Eugene Mancini. I have experience teaching six-year-olds, retirees, and those in between. I am patient, encouraging, and very passionate about music.

I am available to teach in the student's home or online. It may be possible to have lessons at the church where I am Director of Music.

Piano studies overview:

You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music might sound. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and should not be overly thought, but I will explain ...

Barbara D. Twinsburg, OH

About Barbara

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood.

Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that, you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument!

In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ...

My son has been taking lessons for several years with Barb. His skills and technique improved dramatically when he began and have continue to improve over the years. He received the "most improved" award in orchestra after his first year of lessons. He performs challenging music well at annual recitals and in Akron Youth Philharmonic with Barb's guidance. Barb is encouraging during lessons, yet always points out specific things that need attention for the next week. I highly recommend her.

We have been taking lessons with Barbara for several years now and her expertise is top notch. She has worked with both my 11 year old and 13 year old daughter. My oldest was principal for the entire 7th grade year and the lessons are what made a difference in her skill level. I am excited for my girls to continue to grow in their love of music and the viola and credit Barb for our private lessons. We are looking forward to this years solo and ensembles performance and already picked out our music. I highly recommend taking lessons with Barbara she is very flexible in her schedule and it's very convenient to set up and reschedule appointments and her prices are very reasonable.
