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!

Classical, Jazz, Rock, Contemporary Christian

Clarinet has been my main instrument since I was in 6th grade. I took private lessons in middle school all the way through college as a music major. I can work with students just getting started or more advanced students who need help with band music or solos.

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.

Chelsea did a great job at our first lesson! She was patient and encouraging. She gave my daughter good suggestions on how she could improve and things to try in areas she was struggling. My daughter felt so much better after the lesson. We will continue to take lessons with Chelsea

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.

I teach all levels of Flute, Clarinet and Saxophone. Many of my students have gone on to win at All State programs and have made college and professional accomplishments under my guidance.

About Anthony
Anthony M., clarinetist and multi woodwind performer, has extensive experience as a soloist, chamber and orchestral musician and teacher. As founder and co-director of the New York based, Rosewood Chamber Ensemble, Dr. M was a winning participant in the 1980 Artist International Chamber Music Award. For their prize, the Rosewood Ensemble premiered at Carnegie Hall’s Weil Recital Hall and went on to develop its own subscriptions series in Queens, New York, which lasted over twelve seasons. Dr. M. was artist in residence at the Bay View Music Festival in Petosky, Michigan for three summers and was solo clarinetist with the group Quintessence from 1990-1993. He has performed with the Phoenix Symphony, Northwood Orchestra, the Arizona Broadway Theatre Company, and is a member of the Symphony of the West Valley in Sun City Arizona, and
the Musica Nova Orchestra, where he plays clarinet and bass clarinets.
In addition to Clarinet, Dr. M. has performed on Recorder, Flute and Saxophone, both as a theatre musician and an ensemble member. He has performed with such artists as Ray Charles, Jamie Foxx, Doc Sevrensen, Lew Rawls, Wynona Judd and others in various groups and venues in Arizona and New York.
Anthony has recorded on the Summit, Con Brio, and Blue Butterfly record labels. He was featured on a Trimark Pictures Release playing the clarinet, bass clarinet and contrabass clarinet for the movie, “Warlock the Armagedon.”Currently, he is on the faculty of the Rosie’s House, A Music Academy for Children. Anthony holds degrees from Queens College of the City University of New York, the Manhattan School of Music, and a Doctor of Musical Arts from Arizona State University.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my lessons are centered on where the student is in his/hers musical development. I will in the first few lessons, assess the student's level and then proceed to recommend a course of study. I am process driven and always try to have my students understand my method so I do try to explain all my reasoning regarding the course of study I prescribe. Every student is different so I approach each individual with total respect for their unique ability and talent.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In addition to the standard music stands, metronome, tuners and music, I have digital recording equipment for student's audition recordings. I have helped college bound students get into serious music programs like Northwestern University, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. For students ages 8 years to 9, I recommend the recorder as a introductory woodwind before Flute, Clarinet or Saxophone.

*** Specialties ***
I am a certified Orff Teacher so I use process centered approach even in private lessons.

About Shawna
My name is Shawna and I am a musician and a music educator. Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I began studying music when I was nine years old by taking clarinet and piano lessons. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. After graduating I became certified with the Arizona Board of Education and was a band director between two schools in downtown Phoenix before moving to South Miami, Florida in 2012, and started a Kindermusik program at the Miami Children's Museum. I am back in Phoenix and currently am the music teacher at an elementary school in downtown Phoenix and perform on clarinet within the community with local groups.

As a teacher my goal is to provide my students with an enriching musical experience, because every student can be a musician regardless of their age or ab
ility. I have experience teaching beginner to advanced studies on clarinet, beginner to intermediate studies on saxophone and music theory, and beginner studies on piano. Regardless of the instrument, I make sure that my students have an in depth understanding of their instrument. I explain all concepts regardless of how advanced in the simplest of terms so that my students can fully comprehend the objectives of every lesson.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a friendly and approachable person who believes that building a good relationship with a student is the key to learning. My lessons are structured but are individualized to meet the needs of the student. I focus on the technical skills of the instrument as well as reading music. I will assign material for the student to practice on at home, but I am willing to work on music from school and allowing the student to have the freedom to choose what style/genre they are interested in performing. At the end of the every lesson the most important objective is that every student is playing music and enjoying the music that they are creating.

*** Travel Equipment ***
During a lesson I provide a music stand, metronome, tuner, and any extra teaching materials. My students are responsible for their instrument, accessories (reeds, swabs, cork grease, etc.), and ideally have a music stand and metronome for at home practice.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all levels of students from beginner to advanced, and all ages.

I have experience using a wide variety of method books and styles in my teaching. I determine which I use based on the needs and abilities of the student.

Some lessons may include:
-Technique (scales, tone, articulation)
-Sight Reading
-Ear Training
-Music Theory
-Repertoire (band method, band music, classical, pop, etc.)

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.
