Jonathan H. Hatfield, PA

Subjects Taught

About Me

I started my musical education in a children’s choir at age 6.
When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin
at 9 and trombone at 10. I am now proficient on the guitar, bass, and piano. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean’s list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I currently also teach at Milestones in Music.. a local studio. I am a member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to work with a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most prestigious
award in music, the Grammy). I am the band leader at my church Montco Bible Fellowship, and the lead audio tech for and audio/video group.. Sanctuary Sound, and also do consultant work for organizations looking to setup a sound system/studio. I enjoy recording my own music in my home studio, and learning to play new instruments. I hope to pass my love for music to the next generation!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor... as you will find out! I understand that not everyone learns at the same rate; however, I am a perfectionist and don't allow students to advance until they have learned a particular skill. I would rather a student take forever to learn a song, and practice it with good technique, than be able to play it right away with poor form and posture! I reinforce the value of working toward goals and celebrate with students when they reach them. I understand that every student has different interests and reasons for wanting to learn an instrument... I try to focus on the areas that are of interest to the student, because if you are enjoying yourself then you will excel. This does not mean that the subjects and skills that are not of interest will not be taught, because I believe in being a well-rounded musician. I teach both jazz (improvisation/reading chord charts) and classical (written, composed music).

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is currently not optimal for teaching... I hope to change this within the year!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books and other learning materials... I expect the student to have their own instrument/equipment. Piano students are required to have a piano or a keyboard with weighted keys/hammer-action (preferably 88 keys), a piano bench and a pedal. Guitar/bass students must have an acoustic/electric guitar/bass with a strap or footstool, pick, and cable and amplifier if applicable! Digital audio students must have their own computer, software, digital audio interface, speakers/headphones and midi controller. All students must purchase a full size notebook with lined or staff paper!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and jazz piano and guitar, and jazz bass.
I am proficient at most production software including: cubase, reason, fl studio, melodyne, digital performer and protools... and other editing software such as sony sound forge, audacity, etc...

Rosalind H. Coatesville, PA

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Classical Voice, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

Hi, my name is Rosalind H. and I began my musical education at the age of ten, when I first started taking lessons.  Since that time I have performed professionally as a singer in churches, cafes and at weddings and in venues including the Kimmel Center and Carnegie Hall during my college years with the renowned Westminster Symphonic Choir.  After spending a year teaching children and adolescents aged 6-17 voice and piano while completing my Master€™s of Arts in Music Therapy at Drexel University, I am now looking to take on private students in Chester County and surrounding areas.
�                    Westminster Choir College '11 Alum�                     Graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Music, summa cum laude�                     Member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing
              Board Certified Music Therapist

 *Please be aware that I teach Beginners Piano.  I do, however, teach all levels of voice, as long as the interested voice student is over at least the age of 8. Singing lessons for students younger than this age can be detrimental to a child's vocal development.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am available to travel to your house (piano students must have a piano or keyboard) or host you in my home. 

Piano students can expect to learn the basic music theory knowledge, including reading staff notation and lead sheets.  I will also focus on fingering techniques and coordination.  Students will be expected to practice theory knowledge and songs outside of lessons to help improve finger coordination and music-reading speed and accuracy.

I offer beginning to advanced singing lessons for students interested in classical, operatic, Broadway and popular music and beginning piano lessons.I try to provide my students the opportunity to practice a wide range of skills when learning music. 

Voice students will learn exercises to practice good breath control, posture and diction, all of which form the foundations of good singing.  Students will be expected to practice these exercises outside of lessons, prior to practicing vocal literature, so as to develop good singing habits.  About fifty percent of lesson time will be dedicated to technique, and the other fifty percent will be dedicated to learning vocal pieces.  Dependent upon their level of knowledge, students may also be asked to watch videos of professional singers outside of lessons, so as to expand their musical understandings and aural sensitivity.  These practices will enhance muscle coordination and breath control when singing, helping to enhance and improve pitch, timbre, expression and vocal range.

As a board certified music therapist, I often draw upon those skills I learned during my master's degree in music therapy, which taught me that music can have a profound effect on the human brain and upon cognitive development.  My skills as a music therapist allow me to better understand a student's cognitive strengths and areas for improvement, and to develop individualized teaching strategies which utilize student strengths.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is equipped with keyboard, guitar and piano, as well as a sizable repertoire of classical, broadway and popular music. I am more than happy to help students find any music they may need for lessons that is not already in my library. I also own a portable keyboard that I use for out-of-studio voice students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide a piano if they are receiving at piano lessons as it is needed for practice. I have a portable keyboard for voice students, but I strongly recommend that voice students record their lessons for reference during practice.

I recommend the following books for piano students (listed by age):
Ages 5-8:
My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A with by Nancy & Randall Faber
Ages 8-12:Piano Adventures - Level 1: Lesson Book [Book]Faber Piano Adventures

Ages 13 and up:

Adult All-In-One Course: Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course, Level ...by Willard A. Palmer

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and operatic music (arias and art songs), but I am comfortable with a wide array of singing literature, as I believe that the technical foundations of good singing remain constant, regardless of the genre. I also have performed with a gospel/spiritual choir, as a soloist, during my college years.

Alexander C. Philadelphia, PA

Accompaniment, Arrangement and Composition, Math, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

Being a current student at Temple University studying jazz performance, I can provide students with an inside perspective of the Philadelphia jazz scene as I gig in the city fairly frequently. Lessons will be fun and informative, working on either jazz and/or basic piano proficiency (whichever is applicable). I've studied with fantastic pianists Tom Lawton and Bruce Barth in my time at Temple and can only hope to pass on the knowledge to others!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are very flexible depending on what you want to learn! I can teach basic piano for beginners. I can also dive into specifics of jazz music for more advanced students, or even jazz arranging and composition!

Tim W. Telford, PA

Subjects Taught

Audition Prep, Bass Guitar, Ear Training, Music Performance, Music Theory, Upright Bass

About Me

I earned my master’s degree in jazz studies from The University of the Arts. As adjunct professor of music at Lebanon Valley College, I teach double bass, bass guitar, jazz improvisation, and directs small-group jazz combos. Working with students of all ages, I also teach workshops, clinics, and master classes at high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools in Pennsylvania and Maryland, as well as keeping a private teaching studio out of my Bucks County home.

Lessons are available on upright bass, electric bass, improvisation, music theory, and ear training at all ability levels and all ages, from absolute beginners to high school students preparing for college auditions to adults. Some of my students have been accepted to various regional orchestras and jazz bands, and I'm very proud of their hard work.

While having an outlined curriculum to develop my students’ technique, reading, and knowledge of theory, I cater to their interests by showing them how to apply what the are learning to the music that they already know and love.
