About Barbara

Music has been an integral part of my world, playing a major role in both my personal and professional life. I embrace the chance to be immersed in it, to share my enthusiasm for and expertise in the area of the music education experience, promoting creative development and student performance skills. I am an original New Yorker, but have lived in Virginia Beach for the past 12 years. I began studying piano at the age of 8 and have not stopped playing since.

About Simeon

Degrees held: Indiana University Jacobs School of Music - MM, PD Oberlin College and Conservatory - BM I teach private piano lessons, music theory classes, and accompanying at SK Piano Academy (www.skpianoacademy.com). Students of all ages/levels are welcome. My teaching method primarily focuses on the process of learning music. Students are encouraged to make manageable goals for each lesson so that they can feel a sense of achievement throughout the entire learning process. The smaller goals keep the students motivated constantly enabling them to become a better musician. By focusing on the process of learning, students are learning a set of skills that will enable them to learn pieces quicker and allow for a more rewarding end product. They also are able to apply these learning ...

Robert S. Virginia Beach, VA

Along with learning an instrument you must also learn how to share what you've learned on the stage. I have years of experience performing. I can help train you to gain confidence in yourself in front of a big group of people.

About Robert

My name is Robert S. I'm 30 years old. I've been playing music since I was 10 years old. I have taught piano for over 4 years now. I've had ample experience in music performance - touring around the world playing shows in places like Indonesia, Russia, and Japan - was a touring member for the Norfolk based rock group, MAE (Capitol Records, Tooth & Nail Records). My expertise is piano but I have a multi-instrumental understanding of music (piano, guitar, and drums). *** Lesson Details *** My goal with each student is to help instill a desire and passion to explore the deeper side of music and how it can bring you closer to matters of the soul. I teach the fundamentals as theory is crucial to understanding music, but let me teach you how to feel the true emotions in music. Each student ...

Robert has the great ability to combine theory with fun! He quickly assessed where I needed the most work and tailored his lessons to those areas. He's very professional, positive, and encouraging. I would highly recommend Robert to anyone interested in learning or improving upon their piano skills!

Robert is absolutely wonderful! My 7 year old daughter is autistic and her attention span is very short. Robert is always very patient with her and praises her learning. He took the initiative to research different ways to approach her piano lessons so her learning was more effective. He is punctual and respectful to everyone in the house (including the needy french bulldog) He is very good at what he does. What a great person to shape the future of music!

Rachel G. Hampton, VA

I have a violin performance degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and I have been teaching and helping students conquer stage fright since 2002! I perform regularly with my internationally touring Celtic group, Tullamore, as well as in smaller venues as a singer-songwriter. In addition to violin, I teach guitar, viola, and piano, as well as voice. My studio is committed to supporting students through performances, holding up to 3 recitals per year (including a more relaxed open mic at a coffeehouse!). Call and schedule with me today!

About Rachel

Hi, there! My name is Rachel, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2002, and have loved helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing (so much "proud mama bear" happening!). In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I also studied piano and vocal pedagogy. I'm an encouraging and fun person to work with (if I may say so myself!), and my teaching style is fun, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, PTSD, and just plain ol' stage fright! I work with you to set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... It's what I love about what I do.

I always wanted to learn to play an instrument and started taking lessons both in person and over Skype with Rachel after finding her website. I could not be happier with the job she has done teaching someone like me with no previous musical knowledge. Lessons are always entertaining, Rachel is very encouraging and supportive but pushes you to constantly improve. She has also been very professional and flexible with lessons and availability. Could not be more pleased.

I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. I am 68 now so it’s about time. I saw Rachel’s ad and decided to give it a try. She is very knowledgeable and the lessons are actually fun and the time goes by quickly. I am glad that I called her. I like taking lessons from someone who performs.
