The 30 minutes I spend with Stacey are the bright spot in my week. In just 3 short lessons, this 72 year old has learned so much! Stacey's enthusiasm and support for the student come together to create an environment in which the student can explore their limits. Her understanding of proper singing technique and phrasing and her ability to evoke same in her students is exemplary - in other words, I love my voice teacher, Stacey!

Stacey is a wonderful teacher. I was nervous about taking singing lessons and she put me at ease with fun vocal exercises and her warmth and sense of humor. The musical education I received from her was excellent.

Music Theory is the fundamental area of music performance. Without this piano can be rather difficult. I focus on basic music theory comprehension and can assist students throughout advanced theory skills. This is easily applied to the average 30 min piano lesson.

Excellent!

I started to learn piano with Jennifer about 3 months ago and I have learned a lot from her. She knows which my level is and she introduces the finger exercise to move my finger easily, and the various songs(pops, classic,etc) which suits my level and how to arrange the songs.
My skill has been improved and I am so satisfied with her lesson.
She is always supportive and encouraging me, and so much fun!

Both kids enjoy their lessons with Jennifer and after three sessions they are still happy to learn more things and do their homework. Jennifer knows where their level is and how to keep them focused.
Christopher M. Cincinnati, OH

I have taught music theory for fourteen years.

Note values, rhythm, chords, and chord structure, and harmony.
I typically use the book Tonal Harmony.

About Christopher

I believe that everyone can enjoy singing. Not everyone gets the opportunity to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway, or other world famous music halls. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness. If you have never tried to sing for fear of embarrassment, or If you love to sing and want to learn more or if you just want to brush up and fine tune, my studio is the place for you. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness.

I take time to listen to a student's instrument and lesson by lesson determine what is the best course of positive action that I and the student need ...

I am very happy I started lessons with Dr McBride. He passes on his knowledge and experience in a straightforward gentle, and professional manner. In a short time I have noted positive progress and improvement from his pearls of wisdom and assigned vocal exercises. Recommended without any reservation!

I received my Bachelor of Music Degree in Organ Performance from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in June of 2010, studying under Dr. Roberta Gary. I have completed all the coursework for the Master of Music Degree in Organ Performance. I will receive the degree in late 2014 or early 2015 after performing one more solo recital.

I began playing the piano at the age of 5, later moving to the organ at 9. I have held a church job since then, working in multiple different denominations and settings. I have a strong background of piano, accompanying, theory, sacred liturgy, and musical performance. I enjoy studying and listening to many genres of music as well as performing them. I am very interested in historically informed performance and understanding different ...

PJ is a great instructor. He is teaching solid basic skills in addition to keeping the content interesting. He provides excellent feedback in a manner which makes our teen want to correct/improve rather than get frustrated or defensive. PJ also went out of his way to meet our regular schedule request and works effectively via Skype. He has been very accommodating and even pushed a lesson out 2 hours when our son got stranded at school one day. We are looking forward to many Great lessons with PJ and I think that our teen's exposure to him will further ignite his passion in music - really, what more could you ask for than that.
