Jean B.

Worcester, MA

About Jean

Jean is patient, fun, and imaginative. She also loves passing on the gift of music to anyone wanting to learn!

Jean's philosophy of teaching is; 1. Taking on any new task requires time and discip
line. Mistakes are a part of the learning process. The biggest challenges reap the greatest rewards.

2. The student and teacher are a team! The teacher and student will work together to learn together. As the student is learning new skills and techniques, the teacher is learning all about the student and their specialized needs.

Jean's Education:

Jean is a graduate of Bradford College in Bradford MA with a Bachelors Degree in Creative Arts. Her major instrument is piano.

Jean has been teaching piano for 10 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
Within a lesson, students can expect to be given instruction on developing proper technique. (scales, chords, basic music theory etc). The learning environment will be laid back and fun, with the student and teacher setting goals together, and reasonable expectations will be held for both the student and teacher.

Jean will ask what it is in particular that the student is wanting to learn, and will seek to develop curriculum centered around the student's goals. Weekly practice (5 days a week, 20-30 minutes a day) will be the encouraged minimum. This will vary slightly depending on individual student needs.

Students will have the opportunity to learn to play music by composers such as Mozart and Bach. They can also learn how to play movie soundtracks, tunes from their favorite Broadway or Disney songs, and more! Vocal students will have the opportunity to learn show tunes, Italian arias, German songs, praise and worship songs, their favorites from musicals, and more.

Steve K.

Ellington, CT

About Steve

I am a Musical Director who has scored original music for many motion pictures and television and was musical arranger for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. I've scored and arranged original music for se
veral television shows including, Desperate Housewives, MTV's Making the Band, It's Showtime at the Apollo and numerous series on PBS, A & E and Disney, . I have also served as on-set vocal and piano coach for many Disney TV series.

As a piano instructor, I believe in giving every student a foundation in classical music.. I enjoy teaching and playing Jazz and pop as well.

I've worked with students ages 5-90. I simply love the teaching process and respect every student's journey. Mixing structure and discipline with a positive teaching style, I work to inspire students to be their best within a well structured curriculum that is fun and engaging.

Music must be fun...always!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students see progress. I don't believe in cookie-cutter instruction. I take the time to learn a students individual comprehension of the musical language and their learning style. I also build a practice schedule that is realistic and creates growth. Music instruction should not feel like a burden, but should be joyful. It's a process I have respected. Whether you are 90 or 9, you can learn music, love music and feel its presence by playing an instrument or singing. My job is to communicate that joy and show you how you can do it for yourself.

Learning to master a musical instrument is a two way commitment and I will always give you my full effort as I love the results.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a digital upright piano for piano and vocal instruction.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the lesson material and help students with purchasing the right method books.

*** Specialties ***
For beginning Piano-Intermediate, I have embraced the James Bastien series, as I believe it paces the young student and builds a foundation on a musical and pedagogical level.
Vocally, I follow a classical technique, but use that foundation as a basis to meet the goals of the singer for the style they want to achieve.

1st lesson ever for my 14-yr old son and it went great! Steve did a great job checking in a couple days prior to confirm a few details and sent great directions - he's in the newer part of his neighborhood so the aerial pic he sent was more up to date than the map on our phones, that helped a lot.

Kate S.

Springfield, MA

About Kate

I am a singer and a passionate teacher. I have a Master of Music in Voice Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, and a Bachelor of Music from UMass Amherst. I have performed in Washington DC,
New York, Hawaii and New England in classical, opera, musical theater, folk, and cabaret shows. I have taught kids through adults in all styles of music.

In addition to teaching good vocal technique, I also train my students in performing and interpreting their songs. I give lessons based on two principals: 1st, Singing is about communication. You cannot divorce the meaning from the song. 2nd, each person is capable of creating a unique interpretation and performance of every song they sing. My desire is to help students learn to express themselves through music.

Kate was my voice and piano student and a member of the World Children's Choir for 12 years. I have followed her development and her career since she graduated. She is a wonderful mother, world class performer, a very patient and supportive person, and has great teaching skills. Every word that she wrote in her Overview is true. Anyone of any age who has Kate as her/his teacher will be very fortunate.

Teresa is a great teacher! I introduced her to one of my friends who is also a singer. Teresa had a one-on-one with my friend talking about goals and what she was wanting to achieve. I was there for the first lesson and she was great. Teresa has a great voice, a great attitude and the skills needed to guide students on their vocal journey. She has a very friendly and happy energy which would be great for younger students as well!
