Kristin has been teaching piano and voice for over ten years. Most recently she was on the faculty at the International Opera Center of America where she taught piano for singers. Kristin taught both group and private lessons at the MusicTime School in San Francisco, CA where she was best known for her innovative work combining fun activities with learning, creating an excitement for music in many young piano and voice students.
Kristin began her piano studies at the age of 3 and her vocal studies at 10. Kristin's most recent success as Florence Pike in the opera Albert Herring was produced by Maestro Lorin Maazel with the London Royal College of Music at Chateauville, VA. The company subsequently replicated some of the opera, in a concert version, with Marvin Hamlisch at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Last year, the mezzo-soprano was a Resident Artist with the International Opera Center of America where she dazzled the audience in the title role of Carmen and sparkled as Alisa in Lucia di Lammermoor.
Kristin was first recognized as a youngster with an extraordinary voice. By thirteen, she had developed to a performance level that merited an invitation to tour throughout Germany. Following High School graduation, Kristin received a scholarship to attend Oberlin Conservatory. She completed her Bachelor of Music Degree in Voice Performance at Oberlin and then obtained a Master of Music Degree from San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Kristin then joined the Central Florida Lyric Opera's young artist program in Orlando and began studying with Maestro Bill Doherty.
Early in her career, Kristin was honored to be chosen as an Apprentice Artist with Des Moines Metro Opera and debuted in the leading role as
Miss Baggott in The Little Sweep by Benjamin Britten. In 2007 Kristin toured Italy in a concert production by Il Sempre Magico Baule, the Italian Opera Company based near Milan. Her performances were so successful that she was called back to perform the Pergolesi Stabat Mater with the company which garnered the highest critical acclaim and played to sold out audiences. Kristin returned to her scenes of triumph for a summer 2008 concert tour with La Scala artist Andrea Elena.
Drum, Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Percussion
I started playing drums in my parents' basement when I was 9 years old. It was just me, a stereo, and a bunch of cardboard boxes I made into my first drumset. Every day, I listened to to my favorite songs over and over again to figure out how to play them. To me, there was nothing more awesome in the world than music.
Since then my musical journey has taken me far and wide. I've studied percussion and composition with world class teachers, toured Europe, composed music for commercials, co-written award winning songs, and performed with a variety of artists at such venues as the Hard Rock Cafe, BB King's, World Cafe, 55 Bar, The Living Room, The Bitter End, Shrine, Rockwood Music Hall, and many others. And the one thing that hasn't changed? I'm still totally in awe of it all.
These experiences have helped me to create my own style of teaching that's tailored to each student, whether they want to learn music purely for the enjoyment of it, or take their studies further. Sharing my knowledge and life experience with people is a great feeling. I really enjoy teaching -- In fact, I've learned just as much from teaching my students as they've learned from me.
I continue to perform, teach, and compose original music in New York City with my wife and two pianos.
My Education/Credits: Percussion, Berklee College of Music / Masters in Classical Composition from Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College.
Drum, Music Performance, Percussion
Hello to all , My name is Ronen and I am originally from Tel-Aviv, Israel .
I came to the United States to pursue my academic career in music and graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2007, majoring in Professional Music. My coursework included Music Theory, Music Technology, and Music Business as well as other related professional music courses. My practical experience included private lessons with internationally renowned drummers such as Dave Dicenso, Kenwood Denard, and Mike Mangini. Additionally, my hands-on classes included Rudimental Labs, Drum Labs, Fusion Labs, Studio Drumming Lab, Contemporary Applications for Percussion, and Afro-Cuban Drumming. Through this broad curriculum, I have expanded my cultural understanding of music.
With more than fifteen years of solid experience in the music world and teaching field, I am a highly professional drum teacher and have been instructing students of all ages and levels informatively and creatively. Students under my teaching methods are engaged with numerous styles of music and cultures, and develop gradually while achieving excellent music and performance skills.

Whether you want to pursue a Musical Career or simply learn how to Play your Favorite Tunes for friends and family, I am here as your Teacher and Guide. I teach at my own home, commute to yours or through the use of Sype. Your choice.
As a Father of four, I have had the joy in teaching my children Guitar, Saxophone, Songwriting, Composition and Keyboard. As a parent I have found that Patience and Encouragement is sometimes the best form of support. It has been proven that learning Music helps develop intuition, self-awareness, and social skills as well as improve in other subjects not directly related to the arts such as Mathematics and Science.
One of the most important aspects of playing Music is being able to play by ear. This has been a priceless gift that I have developed throughout my life and I encourage all musicians, young and old, to do the same. The use of simple Rhythmic Dictation and Ear Training exercises can do wonders for "picking out" those unusual beats and harmonies we hear no matter what genre we are interested in.
I attended music courses at The Boston School of Contemporary Music, Thomas Jefferson College (MI), and have a BA double majoring in Music Composition and English at Columbia College Chicago.
Besides touring internationally as a Guitarist and Saxophonist, I am a Songwriter. Third Border's “Sun of Water; Sea of Light” was selected to be nominated for the Grammys as The Best Alternative Album of the Year in 2006. On this record, I played guitar, sang lead vocals and wrote all songs. If you are a songwriter, we can polish up your approach!
If you would like to learn how to compose a solo, a duet or ensemble, I can get you started in a low-stress, one-step-at-a-time procedure. As a composer, I have done sound design for film, dance, spoken word and multi-media performance - most notably with renowned poet Anne Carson and former members of The Merce Cunningham Dance Co. As principal composer and conductor, I formed New York City's first full-on Saxophone Orchestra; a 13-member ensemble.
I hope to talk to you soon!
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
