Colin D.

Akron, OH

About Colin

Hello! Thank you for viewing my page! I am happy to be part of Takelessons.com, and I hope to hear from you soon.

A little about me:

I have been in the Akron area for a year, and I have comp
leted my first year of graduate work at the University of Akron, where I am working towards a Masters of Music in Percussion. My main professor is Dr. Larry Snider (mallets, snare drum, timpani, general percussion). I also study drum set with Mark Gonder (drummer for the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra) and steel pan with Matt Dudack (director, University of Akron Steel Drum Band). This past year at the University of Akron, I worked as a dance accompanist and was awarded the Outstanding Graduate Percussion Student Award for the 2012-2013 year.

Thought I am a busy student, I am busy playing and teaching throughout the area as well. Currently I am playing drum set with Akron-based rock band Anchor the Moon and for the praise band at Montrose Zion United Methodist Church. I also freelance as a percussionist and steel pan player, and I am currently the drum line instructor at Chippewa High School.

As an undergraduate, I studied music education at the University of Southern Mississippi with Dr. John Wooton (mallets, jazz vibes, drum set, snare drum). While at Southern Miss I performed with numerous ensembles (jazz, wind band, orchestra, steel band, etc), coached drum lines for Pearl River Central HS and Loyd Star H, and marched in the 2010 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with the Pride of Mississippi Marching Band.

All of my experiences have made me into a very well-rounded and versatile player, and I feel that I have much to offer those wanting to learn. I especially enjoy beginner students, as they allow me to witness their personal and musical growth at a very high degree.

*** Lesson Details ***
As every student has different goals, I attempt to cater to the needs of each individual student. In my opinion, this is what makes teaching such an interesting and rewarding activity. I always enjoy discovering how each student learns and do my best to cater to that student's learning style.

While I do take lessons seriously, I am still laid-back, as a person and as an instructor. I strive to have a fun and stress-free teaching environment, though I can move at a quick pace if need be. Essentially, I want the experience to be informative and education, yet still enjoyable. I strive to avoid treating the lesson like a chore. While I do take music itself seriously, I still know that music should be ENJOYABLE!

I can work with students at any level. For beginning students, I strongly focus on technique and basic musicality (reading rhythms, reading pitches, etc). For more intermediate students, I still stress technique while introducing other concepts such as stylistic approach for different types of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two drum sets, one steel drum, one djembe, one cajon, one
conga, one bongo, two snare drums.

*** Travel Equipment ***
One drum set, one steel drum, one djembe, one cajon, one conga. one bongo, one snare drum.

*** Specialties ***
Orchestral and rudimental snare, drum set, steel drum, timpani, hand drums, orchestral percussion, mallet percussion, drum line technique, African drumming, Brazilian drumming

Graham H.

Akron, OH

About Graham

I am a fourth-year Piano Performance major at The University of Akron. I am currently studying with Philip Thomson, and my past teachers include Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and the late Eugene Man
cini. I have experience teaching six-year-olds, retirees, and those in between. I am patient and encouraging.

I am available to teach in the student's home or online.

Piano studies overview:

You can play what you can hear. I see that students have a well-rounded approach towards musicianship and playing. Lessons should include theory, ear training, etc. to ensure that students understand what they are playing.

Beginning students might start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures' by Faber and Faber. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

In a piano lesson, we will cover many different aspects of playing. The student and I will analyze a new piece of music in various ways while coming up with an idea of how it sounds. I will play the piece and make practice suggestions. The student will play prepared pieces, and I will make suggestions. I value spontaneity.

My adult students say I am insightful.

5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano
Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha
