Sanford K.

Bethlehem, PA

About Sanford

I am a classically trained musician who has also spent a lifetime teaching and playing classical, jazz, pop, and contemporary Christian (CCM) styles of music on piano, clarinet and saxophone. My education includes a Master of Music degree from New England Conservatory (with distinction in performing), Bachelor of Music degree from Boston Conservatory of Music, and more than three decades of teaching and performing experience as soloist, ensemble musician and accompanist. My students have placed in top seats at district, regional, state and national competitions, been finalists and prize winner
s of prestigious young artist competitions, and have been accepted to numerous performing arts colleges and universities.

*** Lesson Details ***
New students are required to learn how to read music and understand basic chord and scale theory. From there, some pursue studies in classical literature, while others learn jazz or pop styles. I encourage all my students to practice the materials I provide, but also request that they bring in the music they like to play. After all, the purpose of studying and practicing is to be able to PLAY the music you love!

Where do you want to go? What do you want to do? Let me help you get there through music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Kawai RX Series grand piano, Yamaha XS8 keyboard, Kurzweil PC2x keyboard, Buffet clarinets. Apple computer, iPad and speaker system for track playback. Recording equipment, studio mice and software to produce audition CD's or MP3's.

*** Specialties ***
I teach classical, jazz, pop and contemporary Christian styles of music. All students learn how to read sheet music as well as chord changes.

Sanford is an exceptional instructor and person

My son stared lessons with Sanford about 7 months ago. He is doing a fantastic job with Sanford as his instructor. Sanford is kind, extremely patient, knowledgable and supportive. He gives my son a little push when he needs with positive words of encouragement. What I found to be wonderful was the way he was able to start teaching all aspects of playing music simultaneously, reading, writing, and playing music. The excitement my son feels every time he is able to play a piece of music is priceless. We have Sanford to thank for that.

About Scott

I have a digital recording studio at home, and regularly perform with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I perform as a music therapist, singing and playing tunes with an acoustic guitar. I wrote, performed and recorded my own album which made it up to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was previously a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and ge
ar as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Recording, and Live Sound for 12 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in any style of music.

I LOVE working with people writing songs. I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in all areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the last 12 years

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have :

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, organ and synthesizer, saxophones, hand drums, microphones... it's hooked up here :)

a 20-track digital recording studio with studio monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing.

and an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors and the best part ... I know how to use them all together!

*** Specialties ***
I am comfortable teaching all styles. I do love the songwriting process and recording and will encourage you to do the same.

Nicholas U.

Allentown, PA

About Nicholas

I am a second generation music teacher for piano and violin. I have been teaching for over 15 years as well as playing both instruments for about 30 years. I have an Associates in Music. Making lessons both fun and educational is what make my students successful in their instruments. My lessons are custom made to how the student learns, not cookie-cut. We also do bi-annual recitals in October and April to showcase the students' accomplishments.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are both fun and educational at the same time. I compromise with my students by having us each pick a piece
to play on top of the usual learning pieces. My students play anything from Katy Perry to 80s music and rock ballads and in between. I use John Thompson and Fingerpower as well as a notespeller for piano and String Essentials for violin. Many of my students can play with both hands after six months. We do recitals each year to showcase the past year's achievements in their pieces.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For either instrument I pick up all books and supplies ahead of the lesson. I have my own violin and music stand that I use to assist in teaching.

*** Specialties ***
John Thompson, Suzuki, popular music, Gospel, New Age, and anything in between

Joe is awesome

I came to Joe with some basic knowledge and skills on bass, he recognized this and built on it very quickly. I feel my skilled has tripled in the short time I've taken lessons with Joe. Our lessons are never boring an he does so much more than tell me to play a set of notes, he challenges me to make my own way and improvise. I would definitely recommend him for anyone wanting to learn an instrument.

Joe taught both my kids and made it a wonderful experience

We wanted our son and daughter to have an appreciation of music and at the same time enjoy the experience. Joe was the perfect solution. He has the ability to reach out to kids and make them feel comfortable. He encouraged them to select the music they enjoyed and then molded his lessons around their interest. We didn't really need to push them to practice, they actually enjoyed it. This had not been the case at other organizations, where it was always a chore to have them practice.
