Broadway Singing, French, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Violin

About Me

I have been making music my entire life. I began studying the violin at age 5 and the piano at age 6, and then when I was 8 started singing in school and church choirs. I received a music scholarship to high school which kept me busy accompanying people and participating in various instrumental and vocal groups. I began taking voice lessons as a freshman at New York University, and I'm now in year 8 of my vocal studies and year 21 of my piano-playing.

After graduating from school, I sang in several operas with the Amato Opera company in New York, and staged a recital here in Philadelphia at the First Unitarian Church in which I sang and also accompanied another singer. I have been a professional member of the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia Singers, and a volunteer member of Singing City.

I have maintained a small private studio since 2008, and have given vocal workshops at a handful of artists' retreats.

If you are a parent, you'll be happy to know that I also have lots of personal and professional experience with children, including working in pre-school and extended day settings, facilitating arts workshops given in Philadelphia public schools, and being the eldest of five children. Beyond all that, I genuinely love working with kids - so much joy, so much unfettered potential!

What I have to offer as a teacher are my compassion, my patience, my ability to listen, my knowledge of different musical styles, and my insistence on doing honest work and striving to give your best - and doing so in a way that is an inspiration rather than a drag. I love to help people discover great things about themselves, and I truly believe that music in general and vocal expression in particular are things that are available to everyone, no matter who has told you what in the past.

Apart from music making, I enjoy knitting, biking around Philadelphia, cooking, painting and drawing, and walking around in nature.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our lessons will be very collaborative. I consider myself more of a guide than a director, so you tell me where you'd like to go, and I'll do my best to help you get there! I place an emphasis on developing the fundamentals of musicianship: understanding rhythm, pitch, and notation; playing with healthy posture and alignment/singing with healthy technique and proper support; reading music; developing interpretative ability; as well as fostering self-confidence and creative expression.

If you are a parent and want to give your child the gifts of musical study (developing discipline, self-confidence, creativity, and right-brain power), or if you'd like to prepare for an upcoming church solo, school play audition, or professional engagement / get help learning a new piece of music / finally take those music lessons you've been talking about for so long / or just explore your own musical potential - I can help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room with keyboard and instruments. Parents can sit in on lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide all necessary equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical piano, classical singing, and Broadway singing.

Stephen R. Aston, PA

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Violin

About Me

Stephen began violin lessons at age three. When his family relocated to Parrish, Florida in 1999, he joined the Florida West Coast Youth Symphony at age six and performed with them for six consecutive years, serving as concert master and assistant concert master. He then auditioned for The Venice Symphony and was accepted at age thirteen, the 2006-2007 season. He has performed with them for three consecutive seasons. In addition, he has also performed with the Sarasota Pops for two seasons from 2006 to 2008. He then joined The South Shore Symphony Orchestra in 2010, and performed with them for their first five concerts and has served as principal second violin. He also has joined Anna Marina Island Concert Chorus and Orchestra and has performed with them for the 2010-2011 season. In February of 2011, he relocated to the South Philly suburbs and is currently performed with the Delaware County Symphony and the Rose Tree Pops. Throughout the years, Stephen has performed with Elicia in a number of events, including weddings, Christmas shows, and entertainment at restaurants such as the 800 Bay Restaurant and Club.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons offer an extensive education in technique, musicality, music theory, and most importantly, effective practice methods that increase capability and skill rapidly. I tailor my lessons specifically according to the student's abilities and strengths, while incorporating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Typically, I use the Suzuki and Strictly Strings books for beginner students, and I will then advance to etude studies such as Wolfarht and Sevick in addition to the Suzuki sequels for my intermediate students. Lastly, I will add Introducing the Positions, Mazas, Josephine Trott Double Stops, and solo concertos to my advanced students.

After a few months, my students acquire a well rounded knowledge and feel for the violin and classical music and appreciate the art and beauty music brings to life. They are always strongly impacted and inspired to pursue and achieve higher goals and activities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In the music room there is a piano and music stands, and music available for purchase if necessary.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring my own instrument, but would expect my students to have an instrument, stand (or a piano is fine), music (if it is not a first lesson) and a willingness to learn!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical violin, and I have worked with the Suzuki Method, but I am also very open to other methods and schools. I also teach varied styles of violin such as fiddle.

Elicia R. Aston, PA

Subjects Taught

Fiddle, Music Performance, Violin

About Me

I began violin lessons at age five, and was requested by the youth conductor to join the Palm Beach Youth Symphony a year later. For eight consecutive years, I performed with many other youth orchestras and served as concert mistress several times. At the age of thirteen, I auditioned for and joined The Venice Symphony during the 2004-2005 season and was a part of their ensemble for seven consecutive seasons, including the position as assistant principal. In addition to the Venice Symphony, I have also performed with the Sarasota Pops for two seasons, The South Shore Symphony Orchestra as assistant concert mistress and as concert mistress, and Anna Maria Island Concert Chorus and Orchestra. Recently, I relocated to the South Philly and am now performing with the Delaware County Symphony in Aston, PA, and the Rose Tree Pops located in Media, PA. Over the years I have had performing experience with violin duets and trios with a classical guitarist on a number of occasions for weddings, Christmas shows, and restaurant events. Some of my performance venues include the 800 Bay Restaurant and Club, the Four Seasons, the Sugarhouse Casino, and the Pyramid Club.

In addition to my musical career, I am also heavily training in the sport of ice dancing. Currently, my brother and ice dance partner, Stephen, and I are competing in the top level with goals to compete nationally and internationally. Through my experience as a performer both in music and on the ice, I can give to each student not only the ability to create music through the violin, but also the mental ability to handle performing and competitive atmospheres.

About Me

A professional musician and music instructor for over 30 years, Mike has established himself as not only a world class player but also an excellent teacher of all ages and skill levels. He teaches for several area conservatories and hosts master classes on composition, performance, guitar and bass improvisation. Mike now offers lessons in his professional home studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Mike's approach is to use the student's own musical tastes to develop an appreciation for the instrument. If you like rock, you learn by playing rock. If you like jazz, you learn by playing jazz. Mike's approach makes it painless to learn to read, train your ear and develop monster chops quickly.

*** Studio Equipment ***
1) Recording studio - 1200 square feet - all instruments and seating for parents

2) Private teaching room w/ all instruments and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
For the last few years I've had good results teaching theory as part of a greater performance focus. I've taught Hal Leonard and Suzuki Method in the past, but find this more enjoyable and rewarding for the students.

Amanda B. West Chester, PA

Subjects Taught

Oboe, Viola, Violin

About Me

I am currently studying at West Chester University of Pennsylvania majoring in Violin Performance, with oboe as my minor instrument. I perform with the Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Baroque Ensemble, Opera Orchestra and many other small ensembles on campus. I am also an active performer in the local area. I have experience playing in classical, fiddle and rock genres, with my focus being classical. I have been teaching students of all ages and levels for the past five years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I work to help students create and achieve their musical goals. Every student goes home with a list of points covered in their lesson so they know exactly what must be practiced for the upcoming lessons. This list helps students practice in a more focused fashion so they can improve as steadily and quickly as possible. I customize my teaching style for each student to ensure that they get the most out of lessons. My goal is to make every lesson fun and challenging for my students.
