I can show how to match musical theory into what a student wants to to play or learn around the same time. This allows him/her to simultaneously understand how theory applies to their learning process and expand the possibilities and understanding whether he/she is a singer or a instrumentalist, or both. Music theory may not be the most desirable subject to learn but by linking it to what they already know it opens many, many doors and this is where the epiphanies and fun begins.

George was so patient with me. I knew absolutely nothing about playing guitar and I learned exactly what I needed. He gave me the confidence I needed to learn the guitar.George is an amazing guitar player and I feel fortunate to have him as my instructor. I loved my lesson and can't wait for the next.

Marcus is a great player and good listener on my questions. It's joy to collaborate with Marcus on projects.
Diana R.
I am so thankful to have found Marcus as my bass instructor; he is the exact type of teacher I was looking for. His training and love for music were evident upon first meeting him. I have learned so much in the short time I have been taking lessons. He is a very patient and passionate teacher.

All around wonderful teacher

Marcus is quite the gifted teacher. By far the best I've had the pleasure to aspire under. He is very easy to understand, and doesn't overwhelm you, taking time on the little things (the most important). He creates an atmosphere that is encouraging to learn in. We all know those teachers that create a stressful environment that inhibits progressive learning, as well as frustration in yourself. Marcus is certainly the opposite. He is also quite easy to communicate with--Creating lesson plans, setting goals, etc... In summation, a professional and a friend I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

I have been teaching music theory for fifteen years in my private studios and in classrooms.

I focus on beginning theory from note reading and rhythm recognition through to the ABRSM theory exams.

I also teach and tutor theory from the Laitz and Kastka Payne theory textbooks.

My desire is to help people understand music theory in an easy and fun way.

Alexandra is everything you could ever want in a first-rate teacher: she is inspiring, devoted, nurturing, exciting, knowledgeable, a fierce advocate for her students - the list goes on and on. However, what makes Alexandra truly remarkable is her almost magical ability to instantly spark intrinsic motivation - and a love of music - in all of her students. If you are looking to learn from a truly life-changing teacher, look no further than Alexandra Perdew-Bhatt.
George M.
Alexandra has met all my expectations. She is very patient. I feel like we are moving along at a good pace. I had zero musical experience and after only 3 lessons can read basic sheet music and actually have music come out of the piano!! I am enjoying the whole process.

Great first lesson! Looking forward to next week.

Thank you!
Mackenzie M.
My daughter had taken private singing lessons through her school for two years before working with Bethany. Her previous teacher had a set "curriculum", and she wanted my daughter to conform to her method, even though it did not seem to address either my daughter's strengths or deficits. Suffice it to say, it was not a great experience.
When we first contacted Bethany, I explained that my daughter just really loves to sing. It is an outlet for her. She's not trying to "get" anywhere in particular with her singing. She wants to learn good technique through songs that she enjoys, and through songs that fit her current range and gradually stretch her. Bethany has been amazing. She is thoughtful about song choices. She is encouraging, and has a very positive approach. She has really gotten my daughter to think critically about her singing. Often, my daughter will talk about what she is working on with Bethany, and it is always from the perspective that she can improve. It is a far cry from having her come out of her previous lessons feeling completely defeated. I really appreciate how Bethany takes kids where they are, and asks their input around what they want to learn. Also, she has been so flexible when we have had to change our schedule with her. She is really great.
Christine
My ten year old daughter LOVES her singing lessons with Bethany! My daughter struggles matching pitch, but Bethany is patiently working with her to improve. Bethany was good at assessing where she was at and making reasonable goals for improvement. Highly recommend!!

"When looking for an instructor what is best to find is knowledge of the subject. When it comes to Mr. Newbold, he delivers; Whether it be current or past. He has had outstanding experience with acclimating to every student's needs and learning style. He provides a great environment/atmosphere which is critical to learning. If his credentials don't speak enough, then his personal musical talent should."

"As a preface, I am a beginner-intermediate music producer, so very much of what I make is still rather amateur. I have spent tens of hours watching different YouTube videos and reading blogs about music production trying to learn how to get better. If I had to put a time frame, I'd say I've been producing as a hobby for about 4 years now.

Anyway, I had a 1-hour lesson with Mark and I feel like I learned more about mixing in that 1-hour than I have in the months watching YouTube videos. Mark is super knowledgeable about music production and its techniques and he had answers to all of my questions. If you're on the fence about booking, I would highly suggest booking with Mark as he is professional, knowledgable, and easy to understand as he breaks down his methods in a beginner-friendly manner - things some other producer mentors struggle with I feel.

I would definitely book again with Mark in the future. If you want to level up your production, Mark is your best bet."

"When I was third trumpet Dr D was the Drum Major. Our marching and field show bands under NY legend David Bournazian won many local and state competitions. I was just happy to be part of it, but Dr. D was leading it. He has deep knowledge of music theory and is equally expert at improvisation. His ability to communicate theory to beginners or higher level learners is amazing. He has the unique skill of being able to make complex concepts seem simple with illustrative examples until you find yourself starting to 'get it'. Highly recommended."

"Jimmy is a great instructor. He takes you seriously no matter what you skill or knowledge level is. When I started with Jimmy I could play guitar but generally only Cowboy chords.

Jim was patient, he analyzed how I played , what I knew and he tailored lessons around what I knew. That way I got the most out of my time and money spent. I can go on and on about Jimmy but for you sake I'll just say that I highly recommend him"
