Daniel C. Cleveland, OH

About Daniel

I am recent graduate of Music Composition and Theory from Antioch College, and I am a veteran of many bands, having performed in some of the largest venues around the country.

I favor a 'learning through experience' instruction style where my students can gain an in-depth understanding of music through the practice of their instrument. My students will quickly and simply learn the essentials of music theory, an understanding of what musical concepts are right for each situation and why, and the ability to compose and improvise musically while they are gaining the technical abilities and skills to flawlessly perform on their instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students will learn about scale, harmony, and its correct application. I will instruct them to quickly grasp the ...

Instructor is very good and easy to work with. I seem to be making progress (slowly).However, I found an "app" called ultimate guitar chords that give fingering for all notes and lets you hear alternate (simpler) fingering to test how it would sound.Depending on how that comes out will may change my plans to continue with lessons after the first four.

Julian T. Cleveland, OH

About Julian

Julian has always been a creative and diverse musician, breaking down the distinctive barriers among different genres of music. He received his training both at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and from the Cleveland Institute of Music, from which he recently received his Masters in Music Performance. Though his training has been largely classical, he also has interests in jazz, fiddle, Latin, hip-hop, electronic and many other styles of music. In 2006, he became one of the core members of the eclectic hip-hop band, The Off Button, an elegant fusion of upright bass, banjo, violin, percussion, vocals, and rap artists. Since then, he has also performed with a large number of ensembles and bands, including the Meadows Symphony Orchestra at Southern Methodist University, the Cleveland ...

Julian is very patient, kind, understanding and helpful -- communicates extremely well to our ten year old girl who has been diagnosed mild ADHD (not severe enough to merit special education services, but she receives accomodations at school to help her stay on task, complete work, etc. -- e.g., extra time on tests). Julian instructs her in such an excellent manner that she is able to focus well and comprehend directions clearly. We would like to know if Julian has any motivational strategies to help Arryanna who has difficulty staying on task for an appropriate length of time in practice times at home.

Exc dialog/connect that Matt picked up on fairly quickly. He became familiar with my learning style; I became familiar with his teaching style. A win-win for both!

I would like to start off by saying, I was very nervous about hiring a tutor for my first grader! I wasn't sure about the dynamics of my daughter with someone she didn't know in our home working on "school stuff" that was already a topic of anxiety. But all that went out the window when we met Matt! My husband and I sat at the table with Matt and my daughter and presented her strengths and weaknesses. Matt jumped RIGHT IN and picked up on exactly what she needed help with within minutes. He kept it fun and exciting for her, even when she started to get tired. He used a calm voice and steady lessons to keep her engaged and LEARNING. Matt came right down to a first graders level and used simple words and instruction. After only two hours and the end of our session, she was mocking Matt's instruction and repeating numbers and sequences to her dad and I with confidence! Matt continued to encourage her through out the lesson and kept thing light and humorous. Evee was laughing and smiling with him from the first moment. My daughter is quite shy around strangers and by the time Matt left, out daughter not only shook his hand, but gave him a giant hug and asked me when he was coming back again. Matt is an amazing tutor and I would very HIGHLY recommend him to any parent looking for the extra help. He was energetic and made learning fun for my daughter. After only two hours, she had A LOT more confidence about Math and numbers and coins. Without any hesitation, I would tell any parent to not be nervous about hiring a tutor, and to feel assured and relaxed to hire Matt. There is not a single thing I would critique about his lesson or his ability to work with a 7 year old. He got right down to work and didn't waste a single moment of time. His lessons were full and easy-going and targeted our specific area of need. My husband and I absolutely loved working with Matt, he was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend him to any one! Thank you Matt and WyzAnt for putting our fears at ease and helping my daughter get up to par! Confidence in school work for my daughter is PRICELESS to me and I have Matt and WyzAnt to thank for taking a lot of the fear and panic out of getting there ourselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Matt is wonderful. He is tutoring both of my elementary school children and they really like him a lot. He takes his time with the children and gives them both his full attention. As a working single mother, my schedule can be hectic. Matt is very flexible with his schedule and very accommodating with changes in my plans week to week and I truly appreciate that! I am excited to see how the kids will do this next grading period with Matt helping them, because I already see a little more confidence in their approach to schoolwork. I highly recommend Matt as a tutor, he's professional and a pleasure to work with.

About Barbara

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood.

Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that, you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument!

In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ...

My son has been taking lessons for several years with Barb. His skills and technique improved dramatically when he began and have continue to improve over the years. He received the "most improved" award in orchestra after his first year of lessons. He performs challenging music well at annual recitals and in Akron Youth Philharmonic with Barb's guidance. Barb is encouraging during lessons, yet always points out specific things that need attention for the next week. I highly recommend her.

We have been taking lessons with Barbara for several years now and her expertise is top notch. She has worked with both my 11 year old and 13 year old daughter. My oldest was principal for the entire 7th grade year and the lessons are what made a difference in her skill level. I am excited for my girls to continue to grow in their love of music and the viola and credit Barb for our private lessons. We are looking forward to this years solo and ensembles performance and already picked out our music. I highly recommend taking lessons with Barbara she is very flexible in her schedule and it's very convenient to set up and reschedule appointments and her prices are very reasonable.
