Melody has done a wonderful job teaching my daughter who so confidently played 3 pieces and 1 duet piece with her. The recital was very organized and professionally done. I am continually impressed with her love, patience and dedication to her students. I would definitely refer her to anyone looking for a piano teacher.

Ms Melody is a great teacher. My five year old son enjoys his lesson and looks forward to coming weekly, not to mention the monthly play date Ms Melody offers to all her students which is really fun and helpful. From knowing nothing about piano to being confident at a recital in just five months is outstanding. Ms Melody is nice, patient, and has true love for her students.

Jeremy took the time to get to know my son's skill level and knowledge level. He related what he was teaching to other activities important to my child. My son learned more in his first lesson with Jeremy than in a year of private face to face lessons at school. Most importantly, when the lesson was finished, my son wanted to keep playing and playing because he was so excited about what he learned.

About Theresa
I have taught instrumental music in New York State public schools for the past 18 years. I have experience teaching general music, music appreciation and music theory to students in grades K-12 and in school band programs for students in grades 4-12 and teaching private music lessons in a local studio and within my own home to students ages 9-60 on a variety of instruments.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Music Education, a Bachelor of Arts in Music (performance on flute & piccolo) from Hartwick College and a Master of Science in Curriculum Development and Instructional Technology from SUNY Albany. In addition to my public education experience, I have performed in numerous pit orchestras for musical productions in my area.

My passion is helping others continue their life long love of music and achieve their goals on their instrument
of choice. I utilize a variety of literature, both classical and contemporary, and techniques in order to meet the needs of each individual student in an effort to customize their learning experience. I hope you will give me the chance to work with you on your musical journey!

About Theresa
I am a professional clarinetist and a certified music teacher for grades K-12. I graduated from The University of Michigan (Go Blue!) with a Bachelor's of Music in Clarinet Performance and a Bachelor's of Music in Music Education. I am currently in Chicago studying with a clarinetist in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Teaching is one of my favorite parts of being involved in music. I love being able to share the joy of making music with my students. During lessons, we will work on all skills needed to be successful on the clarinet. This includes: reading music, having a good embouchure, correct hand position, proper breathing and air usage, good technique, and much more.

When I began taking lessons with Theresa, the intent was that it would be a temporary arrangement until I could find a new advanced instructor in the area. However, Theresa's young, fresh perspective and enthusiastic attitude towards learning turned out to be exactly what I needed, and I ended up staying with her for about three years. She's incredibly talented and empathetic, which makes being her student both fun and satisfying. She has high expectations and really pushed me to challenge myself, which ended up taking my skills to a level of proficiency that I hadn't expected. She also understands the difficulties and frustrations that come with being a student and is great at working through them. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a clarinet instructor, whether you just want to play and learn for fun, or if you really need and want someone that will push and challenge you to develop your skills. She's been my most influential instructor to date and I will always value everything she taught me!

And once kids are in their teenage years, trying to keep up with growth spurts can be extremely difficult, especially considering how much violins cost.
