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 9 of my vocal studies, year 13 of my violin-playing and year 22 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. Most recently I performed with the Atlantic Coast Opera Festival in their 2013 production of "Cavalleria Rusticana", with full orchestral accompaniment.

I have maintained a private studio since 2008, and have given vocal workshops at a number 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 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 what you may have been told 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!

*** Travel Equipment ***

I expect the student to provide all necessary equipment.

*** Specialties ***

I specialize in classical piano, popular piano, classical violin, classical singing, pop/Broadway singing, and musical theory.

Masters of Music in Viola Performance in progress at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA 2015

Ms. Reed began her studies on violin at an early age. After studying violin for 10 years, she made the switch to viola and never looked back! She performs internationally--most recently traveling to the Isle of Man for the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition as a finalist to compete in the 2013 competition (this is one of the two international competitions in the world for viola!). In July of 2014, Ms. Reed will be returning to perform at the Interharmony International Music Festival in Arcidosso, Italy. She has studied as well as performed in Shanghai, Beijing and many other cities across China. Ms. Reed is currently a graduate student at Temple University in Viola Performance as well as a freelance musician and private teacher of the violin and viola. Her principle teachers include international viola soloist, Hong Mei Xiao and Kerri Ryan of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Other interests in no particular order include ancient history, philosophy, astronomy, Earth science, veganism, quantum physics, traveling, spirituality, anything interesting and following her heart always.

When we first meet, I'll ask you to play me something so I can get a feel for where you are...whether its a scale or a piece you have been playing...or if you don't know anything that's fine too! We'll talk about correct set up a bit and then we will start focusing on creating a full sound. Depending on where you are will determine how we go about that.

Example Lesson
1. Warm up (scale, open strings, or finger exercises)
Address technical issues--tone production, posture and set up, various bow exercises, intonation, etc.
2. Positions
3. Etude
4. End with the piece we are working on
5. Recap of what we learned in the lesson

It might sound like a lot--but don't worry I'll have a smile on my face the whole time and be working with you and encouraging you to do your best!

After 3-6 months:
Read notes (if you can't when you first come)
Count rhythms
Have a correct set up
Full tone
Developed ear
Scales
Greater finger facility
Repertoire

*** Studio Equipment ***
Stand, Metronome, Tuner, Music (but eventually you will have your own) You will need to provide your own instrument.

My preferred teaching methods are Suzuki and Sassmannshaus

*** Specialties ***
Classical

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.

*** 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 ***
I have a living room with a grand piano, two music stands, and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My violin, a music stand, extra music, fingerboard tape, a metronome, stickers, and a tuner. I will expect my student to have his own violin and bow, a case, a shoulder rest, and music, and music stand (can be portable).

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I specialize in classical violin, and I have worked with the Suzuki Method, but I am also very open to other methods and schools.

Bass Guitar, Broadway Singing, Cello, Classical Guitar, Drum, Fiddle, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Organ, Percussion, Piano, Reading, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice, Ukulele, Upright Bass, Viola, Violin

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.

Mary W. Medford, NJ

Subjects Taught

Accompaniment, Acoustic Guitar, Broadway Singing, Guitar, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Violin, Vocal Training

About Me

Music degree from Lawrence University and Conservatory in Appleton, WI. Graduate work in conducting, piano, and vocal pedagogy at Westminster Choir College in Princeton. Also certified in Kindermusik for ages newborn to 7.

My studio, since 1993 is located in the back of my house and is in a family friendly location.

As my education originally was music education, elementary and secondary, I have gone on to be certified in teaching adults, both beginning and returning. There is so much piano and vocal educational material geared to the pre-school, the elementary, Jr-Sr high and Adult beginner and I promise we will have fun while learning.....

Anyone can learn an instrument and anyone can learn many different styles. Lessons will be geared toward your interests and goals, which we can work on at your lesson also.

The greatest virtues of a music teacher are passion, patience, understanding, and communicating. You will experience this in the studio. Give yourself a treat of two months of lessons and I promise you will be playing and/or singing better than you expected.

Member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), NFMC (National Federation of Music Clubs),
NJFMC (NJ Fed. of Music Clubs). MENC (Music Ed National Conference),

*** Lesson Details ***
I am generally easy going and laid-back and will work with you to obtain specific goals such as a piece you would really like to learn. I can be strict if assignments are not followed or if there is no progression; we need to analyze why that is. I use many teaching methods as there are many different learning styles. The series I am currently using are Faber, Alfred, and Celebrate Piano! for pianists. Many singers are in Broadway, Disney, and/or English Reliquary and Italian Arias. There are so many wonderful choices! I can guarantee after three months you will be playing some music you like, and you will be reading music, and able to perform if you wish (starting small). With singing you will have basic knowledge of proper posture, breathing, and increased range. I also so enjoy people and communicating so you will feel comfortable taking lessons, and I believe that is one major factor of success in learning an instrument: the student-teacher relationship And second for children, especially the young, is the parent-teacher relationship .

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: Yamaha baby grand piano, Kawaii studio upright and keyboard, Yamaha keyboard, recording abilities, computer software, couch and two chairs, parents can sit in on lesson. Also have computer programs for note learning, composition, as well as giving you apps to download.

*** Specialties ***
Different methods for different students. Piano: mostly Faber and Alfred series. "Prodigy": Aaron/Thompson series. I've also had graduate study in teaching the Adult Beginner! As I was a church music director 1994 till last September, I am very familiar with traditional and contemporary sacred music, learning and performing. If you also wish to combine singing and accompanying yourself on piano or guitar lessons can be tailored.

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, Opera Orchestra, Baroque Ensemble and many other small ensembles on campus. I am also an active performer in the local area, and I especially enjoy playing in operas and musical theater. I have experience playing 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. I recently completed the introductory 'Every Child Can!' course for Suzuki instructors and will be continuing my training to become fully certified.

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. Students with longer lessons (45min or more) can benefit from music theory workbooks and games which I incorporate into each lesson. My goal is to make every lesson fun and challenging for my students!

I give my students multiple performance opportunities each year. This year I have a formal spring recital where my students get the experience of playing with an accompanist in a recital hall. Another performance opportunity I have is a more casual Duet Day where my students and I will perform duets for their family and the community in a park. Of course, these opportunities change from year to year, but the emphasis is always on having fun in performance!
