About James

I graduated with a B.A. in Professional Music from Boston's Berklee College of Music. When I first heard about Berklee, I too thought of warm and sunny Berkeley California and not the frigid winters in Boston. Berklee however, is respected world-wide as the musicians music college. Each year, only 3% of students are able to graduate. Advanced freshman placement accelerated all Berklee core requirements by my sophomore year. An early focus on their Advanced Harmony/Theory and Ear Training electives provided the rare opportunity of experiencing Berklee's highest level courses in both departments. I graduated with Honors in 7 semesters with a cumulative music GPA of 3.6. (Magna Cum Laude). Since graduation, I've been a full-time independent professional musician with over 28 ...

Jim Rocks! I love hanging out every Sunday jamming

I have dabbled with the guitar for a couple of years but never got serious about. This year I made a new years resolution to get serious about it and find a guitar instructor.

I am so happy that I found Jim. He is brilliant with music and is that laid back, rad teacher that you hope to have for guitar.

We are about 5 weeks into lessons and I'm already playing Dead or Alive, Blackbird, Polly, and learning new songs every week. I thought we would be doing "boring" exercises still but he is great at teaching you the basics while keeping it fun.

A+ for Jim. Also, he is extremely flexible.

The only downside is that I wanted him to teach me how to sing Blackbird, but that's not his cup of tea. haha

Thank you!

Hey Jim- I had a GREAT 1st lesson. You went slow enough so that I could understand what was going on but also went a little quicker so we could make the most of the half hour session. The things we worked on were exactly what i was hoping for. I will definitely be back on I feel confident in my "homework" - those darn finger exercises and I have a love hate relationship right now!! Thank you!

About Amber

I began taking piano lessons at a young age and continued with them through my freshman year of college. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and five years of experience teaching private piano lessons. My degree and experience with elementary aged children have prepared me to be able to tailor lessons to my students' individual needs, explain concepts in creative ways, and adjust the pace of lessons as needed. Playing piano is something that I really enjoy, so I love having the opportunity to give students the skills they need to enjoy it, too!

Learned a lot from Amber

I am a 37 year old who started taking lessons January 2014 and I must say Amber is wonderful. Amber is patient, reliable, and easy going. I must say it has been a WONDERFUL 4 months so far and I hope many more to come. She is a GREAT teacher. I never had luck in school with music but I must say she is helping it all to come together easily for me.

About Lindsey

I teach lessons out of my home on Fridays.

I have an acoustic upright piano in my home, seating inside and outside, and there is plenty of on street parking.

Students need either an acoustic piano at their home or a weighted keyboard. Students are responsible for purchasing their own sheet music, whether through me or from a store or online. We can talk about what kind of music you like to play or want to learn to play and go from there.

Usually for either a beginner adult or child, I recommend the Alfred piano series, along with a technique book to strengthen and limber up the fingers, and a "fun" piece ... something you specifically want to learn or challenge yourself with.

My strongest abilities are in classical music, because that is what I have the most ...

About Kenneth

My passion is music and I've known since a very young age that I wanted to be a professional musician and music teacher. I trained at Berklee College of Music in Boston & Neupauer Conservatory in Philadelphia, and obtained a BA in Music Education, with a concentration in classical and jazz guitar, from Shepherd University in West Virginia. I currently teach out of a studio in PA and play in two working bands. I am excited about teaching via the internet and look forward to sharing my love of music with my students.

About Nicole

I have been singing my entire life and teaching since I was 18. I am very passionate about private instruction, as I have personally found the most success through this method of learning music.

When I am not working, I can be found singing in my church choir, playing saxophone and/or bassoon in our Sunday School Orchestra, singing and playing bass in a 5 piece classic rock band, and spending time with my husband and our families and friends.

I will do my best to provide as much of the music as possible, as I know that can be a huge added expense to private lessons, but there may be a couple of books or sheet music that you will need to purchase personally. I will tailor your lesson plan to help you meet your personal goals. I look forward to working with you/your child.
