Phillip is awesome, he is by far the best vocal instructor I've ever had!

I'm a 27 year old male who decided to start up voice lessons again to complement my guitar playing. I'm so glad that I chose Phillip as my instructor. He knows more about singing and how to sing than any instructor I've ever had. He's great!

Willy M.

Winston Salem, NC

I have been teaching piano for almost 20 years. I have taught classical, blues, jazz, country and gospel styles. I am well versed in traditional methods of piano study, but I also have a great deal of success in helping classically trained students learn how to play rock, blues and jazz styles.

About Willy

Willy has been teaching music for more than a decade, carrying on the tradition he learned when his father taught him piano as a youth. He is a multi-instrumentalist with a degree in music from Earlham College in historic Richmond, IN (the birthplace of recorded jazz, and home of 30s era Genette Records). As a sound technician Willy gained valuable experience working at the world famous Tarry Town Music Hall near Sleepy Hollow, NY, where he worked with top notch touring bands like Blues Traveler, the Indigo Girls, Paul Shaffer, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the late, great Levon Helm. He also worked with A-list actors such as Stanley Tucci, James Cahn, Kevin Bacon and Keanu Reeves. While living in Austin, TX, Willy was a member of the American Federation of Musicians alongside ...

I wasn't really taking mandolin, but fiddle in the Stringed Instrument Workshop, but I loved it. Willy is a great teacher. I especially enjoyed the SIW, with my kids. It was a lot of fun to learn musical techniques with lots of people of different skill levels. I'm not the best musician, but Willy makes you feel like you can participate even if you don't understand all of the theory.

The Stringed Instrument Workshop last year was really fun because almost everyone in the group won some different musical freebies from different music stores nearby. We had a cookout and a concert, and both of my children were able to perform in front of the class. Willy set up a stage, lights and a sound system for us all to feel like we were stars! It was such a fun time, and we even had hotdogs and marshmallows!

I loved the Stringed Instrument Workshop so much, I had him teach my kids private lessons too, and they love it.

I loved taking lessons with Willy. I am only 7, and I am just learning, but am starting to play the Charlie Brown theme song. I can also play a little bit of Shorten Bread. There's another song too. It's a song that I learned that I really liked, can't remember the words, but it's a good song. I love piano lessons.

Mr. Willy helped me learn the song "Mean" by Taylor Swift!! I was so happy to play! I took the Stringed Instrument Workshop and I loved it! It was so much fun, and I was able to learn with my friends. It was easy to learn, and we learned how to play "Amazing Grace," together. We played it for my church and everyone loved it!!! :)

I will continue playing mandolin, and want to also learn violin, piano and guitar. I can even play "Mean" on the 12 string guitar now in open tunings!!

About Robert

Both my mom and dad were musicians and taught private lessons at home, so I grew up wanting to be a part of the music making. Now I am a university music educator who performs frequently as a soloist and collaborative pianist. I hold piano performance degrees from Carnegie Mellon and Yale. In addition, I've studied chamber music at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau (France) and vocal accompanying at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. I perform as a church musician, choral accompanist, and recital pianist in traditional and more modern styles. I'm active as a collaborative artist in competitions, auditions, and recordings. In the past three years I've been studying ballroom dancing for fun and as an extension of my interest in experiencing music from the standpoint of total body

Teresa B.

Winston Salem, NC

For beginner piano students, we will start by exploring our way around the piano, and begin building a music theory base. Then, we will continue on at a pace specific to the student, learning skills like how to read music, how to play scales and other exercises, and how to play a piece of music that I assign. For intermediate students, we will begin by assessing your current skills, then build upon them with etudes and exercises like the Hanon technique, and learn pieces from various musical eras. We can also explore Musical Theater and Pop music.

About Teresa

Hello! My name is Teresa, and I am currently a third-year Undergraduate at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, with a major in Vocal Performance/Opera. I am also a Teaching Assistant to one of the piano classes there. I have been taking voice lessons since the eight grade, with an emphasis on classical music. I have been playing piano for almost eleven years. I am self-taught, though I have taken piano lessons in the past to ensure that everything I taught myself was correct. I have also taken six years of music theory. I have been teaching piano privately for approximately three years now, and have recently begun offering voice lessons. If you have any questions or want to book a lesson, please email me at bonavita.tp@artist.uncsa.edu

Heather E.

Kernersville, NC

I have been teaching piano for over five years. My students have started with no knowledge of music and gone on to study advanced piano. Within the first few lessons you will be able to play basic songs on the piano and overtime you will be able to read music with ease. I specialize in beginning classical piano and pop keyboard-style piano. I typically use a combination of Faber & Faber curriculum and my own curriculum which teaches pop chords and improvisation. I love working with students of all levels and look forward to meeting you!

About Heather

Hi! My name is Heather and I am looking forward to working with you! I have taught lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students gain more confidence, ability, and understanding. I went to the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University and University of North Carolina at Greensboro and earned a Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance. I'm a caring and dedicated person and my teaching style is fun, methodical, and individually-tailored. I am excited about helping you achieve your goals!

Heather has an innate ability to uniquely assess numerous nuances in my voice. I'm part of a Christian rock band where I have to maintain proper vocal exercises to best prepare me for public performances and studio recordings. She listens well, takes detailed notes, and offers great exercises to help in the precise areas where I struggle the most. Heather is quick to celebrate accomplishments with the student, and patient through the student's struggle to make vocal milestones. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking to improve vocal ability.

I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Very patient, kind and professional. Heather made me feel very comfortable (I tend to get really nervous when singing in front of people) so that helped a ton. After taking lessons with Heather I feel my singing has improved and my knowledge about the piano has expanded. Gives honest and constructive critiques. I would highly recommend taking lessons from Heather to anyone.
