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

Jean began playing piano at the age of 5. Taking a break from lessons for a few years as a teenager and picking it up again in College.

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 several 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.

Steve is making singing, which seemed absolutely impossible, seem possible. He presents it as set of interrelated skills, at least while I'm still brand new to it. Helps me to see a path rather than decide "I'm just not a singer" as I always thought. I'm finding singing classes to be more challenging, encouraging, and a lot more fun than I expected!!

Jonathan R.

Windsor, CT

About Jonathan

I am currently a Music Education major at The Ohio State University. My primary instrument is piano, and I am always willing to help! I also play saxophone in the Symphonic band, and I've been giving lessons for about 2 years now! My teaching strategy is simple; I believe in teaching the kids about the basics, and then guiding them in the direction they would like. I encourage students to take ownership in their learning, while I serve as a guide or adviser to them.

As of now, I can only teach summer lessons. My time would be from June-August

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!
