Having had experience in Australian Symphony Orchestras and ensembles, Peter has the passion and expertise to take you as far as you want to go

About Peter
I began piano lessons at four years of age, and was blessed to have an amazing piano teacher, who taught me for 14 years. She gave me a passion to teach others and impart to them a love for music. I have carried on that calling and taught hundreds of adults and children over the last 30 years. I am very thorough in my method and customize each lesson around the goals and dreams of each student. I incorporate theory, ear training and technical into all my lessons, regardless of the style of music they are learning. This gives my students an all-round musical education and appreciation for this wonderful gift they have in their hands.

I have experience in the professional music world as a pianist and french horn player, performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Australian Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Sydney Sinfonia, Sydney Philharmo
nic Orchestra and Choir, as well as productions of "Cats", "Phantom of the Opera", Sesame Street, and touring all over Australia, U.S.A. and Israel. I have also been a part of the worship teams at Hillsong Church and C3 Church Australia.

I studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and also received my Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in French Horn (Teaching) and Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in Piano (Performance). So my experience not only comes from an inspiring teacher, but also from hundreds of performances on stages across the world working with the finest of musicians, singers, conductors and worship leaders.

I love music, and more so, love imparting it to others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students come away from their lessons inspired and excited about their ability to accomplish their dreams. Whether it is to play 'Phantom of the Opera' or an Adele song, Debussy's Claire De Lune or Jingle Bells, I show them how to do it and help them get there. I am very thorough, taking no short cuts, but making it fun to learn an instrument. You will be amazed at what you are playing in three to six months!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Rock, Contemporary Christian

I have been playing various types of saxophone (alto, tenor, soprano, and bari) since I was in middle school. I have played in jazz bands and combos in high school all the way through college. I can teach many musical styles and have worked with beginners and intermediate players.

About Chelsea
I have a Master's in Music Technology from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and a Bachelor's in Music (Technology and Recording) from the University of Indianapolis.
I started on the piano when I was in elementary school. I began playing the clarinet, my primary instrument, in 6th grade. I then started playing the saxophone in 8th grade and started playing the flute in high school.
I also teach beginning trumpet and ukulele lessons. These are secondary instruments for me so I only teach beginners, but I can help you get started! I have played trumpet on my own off and on for years and I play a couple times a month with local ukulele groups.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can give lessons in person (my house or yours) or online! You must have your instrument, necessary materials, and music books at your lessons. You may
need to purchase additional books and sheet music.

We sent music to Chelsea in advance and she was able to help my son with the difficult parts of his music. The time was well spent and she explained things well. We look forward to our next lesson and working with her over the next month to help him catch up.

My lessons have a strong basis on fundamentals and theory of music, that way all of my students have the capability to learn any musical style. Each lesson is tailored to the skill level of the student, and what music they are most interested in learning. Saxophone students will learn theory scales, finger techniques, and be introduced to many types of music. I also teach how to care for your instrument, and encourage students to find opportunities to perform in the community.

About Brittany

I have been teaching privately for over 2 years now, giving instruction on flute, clarinet, saxophone, piano, and guitar.

I graduated from ASU in 2017 with a masters degree in Clarinet Performance, and completed my undergraduate degree in Performance at Otterbein University in 2015. I have at least ten years experience performing on each of the instruments I am qualified to teach.

Lisa is trying to teach a senior on how to play again. I very rarely stick to what Lisa has set up for me to practice. Unlike youthful players we are not following a lesson book or books. But she is patient with me and we get along great and best of all i actually think i am doing better than i expected.
My guess would be that this is my third renewal.

About Kris J.

I've played the sax for 10 years and have some experience in music education. I know the instrument thoroughly and would love to share the fun of the sax with you.

About Kris
I'm a pretty laid back easy going guy. If you want to learn a variety of things, check out my subjects and I'd be happy to help you.

I have quite a bit of life knowledge and experience that I'm willing to share. I see myself as more of a tutor, helping students along the path to get better grades and understand their subject material better.

Some things to expect during a lesson: We will go over the material and find any areas you are struggling with. We will hone in on those areas and get to the root of the issue, then build you up so that you have a solid base of understanding and can grow from there.

I hope we can partner to enhance your education and knowledge.

I have 14+ years of experience playing the Saxophone. I have played in all types of groups with people from different parts of the world. During the lessons my emphasis is all the fundamentals such as tone, technique, intonation, feel, etc. But, what I believe is unique about my lessons is my emphasis on improvisation, ear training, and writing. My strong background in Jazz has helped me to be able to play all different types of music from Afro Cuban to Rock, R&B, classical, Funk, African and many more styles. Listening is a huge part of what I emphasize to my students, especially listening to all styles of music. I also have a huge background in writing for different styles/ensembles in music. I have my students write music they are studying in order to understand the role of the saxophone in relation to other instruments in the band.

About Andrew
I am a saxophonist but also play the clarinet, flute, piano, EWI, and compose/arrange all different types of music. I graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Jazz Composition/Performance.

As of recently I have recorded my debut album "The Life of an Aquarius" at the renown recording studio The Carriage House in Stamford CT with 14 other professional musicians. I am also playing around NYC with my own group at venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

I have also background teaching at a music program called Project Music to kids who could not afford private lessons, and were given the opportunity to play music and learn from professional musicians.

I am open to the students needs, and want my students to feel that they can express themselves in front of me on what they are looking to achieve by studying with me. Consistent practice an
d performing is what has lead me to my current musical success.

At Berklee I studied with some of the greatest jazz musicians in the world such as Bill Pierce, George Garzone, Ed Tomassi, Darren Barrett, Greg Hopkins, and many more. They all taught me about the importance of constant practice and learning and growing at your craft.

Overall, I have had a lot of musical experiences and want to pass them on to my students so they can experience the joy of performing in any musical setting.
