He's really excited about what he's teaching and he knows alot about music theory and the fretboard. He may need to slow down for me and stop referring to the notes until I actually catch up which may be longer. I really was excited to learn the things he taught but my fingers aren't catching up. That is also slowing down what I learned at first. He went out and got a requested James Taylor book for me that had TAB that I had never seen before and now I can relate it to what he's teaching. I also have a scales book that goes two octaves. Brian suggested learning one octave so that I can really know the notes.

Brian is an excellent teacher and works well with our son. He has helped him develop new key skills on the double bass, as well as gain confidence on the more challenging pieces his orchestra is taking on this season. On a personal level, Brian is very friendly and does a great job communicating both with our son and ourselves. He makes us feel at home, and our son enjoys working with him. We are looking forward to our son really growing through these lessons. I would highly recommend Brian to other students.

Teaching string bass students at beginning to intermediate levels

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.
