About Me

Hi there! My name is Valerie. I'm a certified music teacher that loves to see a person grow in their love and ability for music. With 17 years of teaching privately, experience teaching publicly in elementary school music classrooms, enjoying several years as a Kindermusik (preschool music) teacher, and a school year teaching with VSA arts of Delaware (teaching music to those with disabilities), I find it thrilling to see a person of any age & background grow and blossom in their passion for music!

Though I enjoy and have experience at teaching all ages from children to adults, I specialize in CHILDREN'S MUSIC EDUCATION (ages 5-12). I would describe myself as an elementary school music teacher that teaches privately. ;) My studio is filled with many smiles, stickers for every accomplishment, and a treasure box of cool prizes for those who are practicing regularly and did a great job in their lesson. Lessons are a time where children can feel like music really is fun and enjoyable to learn and experience!

In addition to being a teacher, I am also a singer/songwriter, and performed for 6 years at local coffee shops and outdoor events within Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey. I am also a member of a local professional caroling group called Yuletide Singers which performs seasonally in places like Longwood Gardens and corporate functions. My history for performing stretches back, though, to my years as a puppeteer/children's performer, touring with a team doing school assemblies and evening family performances. I'm always excited to bring my understanding and experience with performance to my students!

**And, with excitement, I must add that TakeLessons named me "Teacher of the Week" on October 4, 2010! What a great honor! Thank you TakeLessons!!**

*** Lesson Details ***
Our time spent together will be filled with many smiles & laughs because that is probably why you want to take lessons -- because it makes you feel wonderful inside!

Within 3-6 months, we'll begin discovering how to read music and understand the language of it. We'll learn how to play/sing some of your favorite songs and learn some that you might not know. We'll discover what you really want to learn and achieve through taking lessons, and we'll work toward those goals!

For the intermediate piano student, we will begin understanding basic Music Theory and scales and will even take a look at how chord symbols work. Soon, you'll be learning how to accompany yourself and others as you sing! For singers, we'll learn about vocal techniques, breathing, getting your best vocal sound and discovering how to take a song to its potential! We'll also learn performance techniques, how to work with a microphone, have a great stage presence in front of a live audience and begin learning how to read music and even get familiar with the piano keyboard! For all my students, it's a journey that is exciting, unique to each individual, and one we will embark on together!

Because music is a performing art, I coordinate two music recitals each school year for students who are interested. This is an optional event, but is encouraged as part of the learning experience. It is usually held at a local music store recital room and presented in a low-stress and fun way with refreshments that follow!

*My studio is in a safe, family-friendly home & smoke-free environment. We also having a loving canine member in our family... a Yellow Labrador Retriever named Maximus. He is energetic and friendly. You may or may not see him since the entrance to my studio is through our back door, off the main house.

So! What do you say? Shall we START THE MUSIC? :)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are enjoyed in a dedicated music room; keyboard (full-size with weighted keys and sustain pedal)

*** 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 music education for all children, including ones with special needs. I feel it is so important for a child to start out with a fun and wonderful experience with music and performing. My approach is simple and fun and understandable for the young mind.

For my more intermediate students, I enjoy taking them to the next level of understanding in their instrument as well as music theory.

Because music is a performing art, I coordinate two music recitals each year for students who are interested. This is an optional event and presented in a low-stress and fun way!

About Me

I have been singing for as long as I can remember. It is my very favorite activity. I have transformed my love of singing into a career.

I have been teaching music lessons for over 25 years. When you study with me you will have the advantage of that experience. I have extensive experience teaching students of all ages. Throughout my teaching career I have taught students with varied backgrounds and diverse needs. If you are a person who was told not to sing by your music teacher, don't give up! I have taught many children and adults to match pitches and improve their singing voices.

I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Moravian College and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Temple University. While at Temple, I studied standard vocal repertoire and Early Music. I have also completed graduate courses in Early Childhood and Elementary Education at West Chester University.

I served on the faculty of Suburban Music School for 17 years where I taught voice, piano and recorder lessons. I also directed the Children’s Choir and the Women’s Choir. I was formerly on the faculty of Delaware County Community College where I taught courses in the Music Department; and of Temple Music Prep where I instituted, developed and maintained a vocal program at Temple University’s Ambler Campus.

In addition to teaching I was employed for eleven years as a chorister at Christ Church Christiana Hundred in Greenville, DE where I have had the opportunity to sing for such notable conductors as John Rutter, Sir David Wilcox, Sir Philip Ledger, Stephen Cleobury, and James O’Donnell. Previous choral work has included singing for Dr. Ifor Jones and for Michael Korn. I perform in solo and chamber music recitals throughout the Philadelphia area and in Cape May, NJ and with a Celtic group called Celtic Women and Friends.

Voice Lessons

When you study voice with me, you will start with the basics - posture, breathing and tone production. If you have studied before, we will review these areas and brush up on anything that needs work. The next step is to learn some vocal exercises to warm up and develop your voice. When the exercises are going well, we will begin to work on songs. You will need to learn some classical songs because they help to develop your voice, but we will also work on the kind of music you like best. In addition to songs, we will work on solfege (do, re, mi, etc.) which helps to train your ear and to improve your sightreading ability. If you don't know how to read music I will teach you that. If you read music but have some gaps in your knowledge, we will fill those in.

I teach what is called bel canto (beautiful singing). It is a healthy vocal technique that will help you avoid vocal problems. When you learn to sing with this technique, you can sing any style of music you want. After a few months of study, you should be able to tell that your voice is growing stronger, that you have better breath control, and that your range is increasing.

Although I have high expectations of my students, I am relaxed and friendly. If you love to laugh, we will enjoy that together!

Piano Lessons

When you study piano with me you will enjoy playing a variety of songs from your lesson book. As you advance, we may add a repertoire book which increases the number and variety of songs you play. There are many excellent piano methods. I use different methods for different students, depending on their needs.

Lessons will include posture and proper hand position, warm-ups, songs and music theory. Music theory is the study of notation and how music is put together. You will have a workbook with exercises for this study. If there is a particular style of music you would like to play, we will look for music at your level to add to your lesson. After a few months of study, you should know how to read basic notation and be able to play a number of songs. You will also have increased your knowledge of musical notation and harmony.

I expect my students to practice in preparation for their lesson every week. I am relaxed and friendly, so that should help to put you at your ease.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stand, stereo equip, seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching the bel canto style singing. With this technique, a person can sing any style of music she or he chooses.

About Me

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing music in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use this to help you to become a great musician.
I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about music but about music teaching. As a result of these experiences, I vowed to teach students music that is meaningful to them.
Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to form bands, join music groups in school, or just find a friend to jam with. Not only does this raise the level of musicality, it is a great motivational tool.
After high school, I studied music at Colorado State University, where I focused on jazz performance, theory, classical performance, and double bass pedagogy. I earned a bachelor of arts in music from Colorado State University in 2000.
I have been a musician for 16 years. I have played rock, pop, classical, jazz, and electronic music professionally for over 10 years. I have performed in the U.S. and Europe with many talented artists, and I have won various awards in performance and academics.
Although I enjoy a busy professional career in music, I am extremely committed to teaching the young and casual learner as well as career oriented individuals. At this stage in my career, I am enthusiastic towards the education and development of talent.
My home studio is fully equipped with guitars, basses, keyboards, amps, and digital recording equipment. I am highly knowledgeable in audio and midi recording through the use of recording software.
Apart from music, I have been an English teacher for eight years. Currently, I am working towards my Master's degree in music theory and education. I look forward to the prospect of sharing my skills and experience with you or a member of your family.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons usually follow the following steps:
Presentation of material Instruction Practice Performance
In a typical lesson, we first take a look at a piece of music normally through an audio or video recording. After we listen and/or watch, we discuss and examine the music. For example, this could be as simple as saying, What do think about this part? or €œWhy do you like the guitar part?€ It could also be more in depth - What's the time signature? Next, we take a specific part to learn. The student learns by watching demonstrations, making attempts at playing it, and listening to suggestions and instruction. There are many ways to teach just as there are many ways to learn. I try to incorporate as many different methods as possible while being mindful of different learning styles to ensure that the student is successful in mastering a skill. Finally, I save the best for last. When the student has shown sufficient proficiency of a piece of music, it's time to show it off. The student and I play it together as a team. Sometimes, I accompany a vocalist on guitar to get a pop/rock feel. For my guitar or bass students, I trade between lead and accompany roles. I may bring other accompanying instruments to the lesson for a different vibe. The idea is to have fun playing music, and I like to have fun.
People often ask if I am strict or laid back. I say I'm neither. My students and I work hard, but we'€™re so focused and motivated that the time flies by before we even know it.
Lastly, I never ask my students to copy anyone. I encourage my students to be themselves. The music I give them is only a guide or an outline. My goal is to motivate them to play what is in their hearts.

About Me

I'm a classically trained pianist. I graduated from West Chester University with my Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance in 1985.

From 2004 to the present I have been teaching in my own home studio in West Chester, Pa.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am an energetic, experienced, sincere, and patient teacher. I emphasize learning to read music as I believe this is the most important skill a student can possess. I also emphasize theory to help the student get a true knowledge of how music is put together. My goal is to help you understand music so that you can learn on your own!

Flute, Harp, Piano

About Me

I have a unique musical past that has led me to where I am today. I started playing piano at age 6, flute at age 10, and harp at age 16.

Why and how did I get into taking harp lessons? Well, I remember being mystified by the harp in Fantasia and when I was in high school, my dad found a teacher and after the first lesson, I was hooked!

I attended Penn State University and graduated in 2009 with a BA Music degree and concentration on harp. I stayed at Penn State for an additional year to complete a Professional Performance Certificate on the harp. I have been lucky to have played some of the best orchestral repertoire in some of the most amazing concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Heinz Hall, and the Kimmel Center.

I am currently pursuing a Masters of Harp Performance at Temple University. I study with the principal harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Elizabeth Hainen. I will be done with my Masters in 2014 and after I plan to take orchestra auditions and teach!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a big believer in studying the classical repertoire but also playing fun tunes you enjoy.

I consider myself to be a harpist but most importantly, a great musician. I will encourage you to become the best harpist and musician you would like to become. I will tailor my teaching to your learning style. Whether you are taking lessons for fun or are really serious, you will be continuously improving while feeling challenged.

I promise if you start taking harp lessons with me, you'll wonder why you hadn't started sooner!

About Me

I believe that music is a joyful gift that is meant to be shared, and I have dedicated myself to sharing that gift throughout my career. I currently teach piano and voice lessons to children and adults, and while I teach lessons to all students, I specialize in working with the special needs population. Before teaching lessons, I received my Bachelor of Arts in General Music at Eastern University and studied voice under Charles Smith, Dr. Youngsuk Kim, Dr. Jean-Anne Teal, and Christine DeVault. I have performed in musicals, operettas, operas, and recitals, as well as performed as a guest soloist with different choirs and theatre companies in the northeast region of the United States. In addition to voice, I have studied piano under Dr. Nancy Boston, Dr. Mark-Daniel Schmid, and the late Dr. Douglas Crowder. I continue to find joy through new opportunities presented to me as both a teacher and student of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are designed to be a structured and enjoyable experience. My main objective with them is to increase the musical talents of my students while also training my students in their self-discipline and character. Lessons include segments focused on musical theory; warm-ups; sight singing, rhythm, and interval training (for my vocal students); and performance pieces. They generally run 30 minutes long, are filled with valuable teaching insights, and are an enjoyable learning experience for my students.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Front Room/Waiting Area: couch and magazines
Living Room: piano, music stand, and mirror.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students are expected to provide a note book/manuscript book, and the method book I would use for their specific instrument.
