Gabrielle E.

Carnegie, PA

About Gabrielle

Originally from Baltimore, classical pianist Gabrielle E. studied at Peabody Preparatory with a focus in performance and music theory. Later, she moved to Pittsburgh and received her Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance from Duquesne University and her Master's of Music Degree in Music Technology: Composition/Piano. She has won the Spring Piano Competition of the Duquesne Piano Department for three years in a row. She frequently records all periods of repertoire and also many original compositions. She has a strong passion for performing and writing the highest quality of music. If you are c
onsidering becoming a professional musician or are just interested in developing a rewarding hobby, she will help you accomplish your musical goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
First and foremost I want any potential student to know that I thoroughly enjoy teaching and want to help you explore your hidden talents and reach your fullest potential. With that in mind, the learning environment in my studio is relaxed and fun. I never condescend or put pressure on a student who makes mistakes. I encourage students to try new techniques and make mistakes along the way. I also work very closely with my students to achieve their own personal goals. I know that there are many different types of learners who all have different aspirations and I feel it is my job to ensure that my students are satisfied with their progress. I understand that someone hoping to attend a conservatory will have different needs than a small child. I promise to give nothing less than the highest quality teaching in an environment conducive to learning.

For piano students, I will spend much time on proper technique and making sure the student does not compromise the wrist, fingers, arms, or back which may create discomfort later. In the first 3-6 months a student can expect to learn technique, repertoire, and basic musicianship skills such as sight reading and transposition.

Composition/ Songwriting students will be coached according to what their specific goals and interests are. I incorporate the technical aspects of writing music along with music business which will help students get their music played and recorded.

Music theory students will practice skills such as four part writing, melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic dictation, modulation, roman numeral analysis, sight singing, and score analysis.

I do encourage the use of specific curricula but I am always willing to explore something new if you have a preference or have found success with something else. I hope that music will give my students lifelong enjoyment and I encourage you to come make music with me.

Good with children

Miss Gabby has been teaching my daughter piano for a few years, and she does so good with her. My daughter doesn't always have the best attention span, but Miss Gabby does well to redirect her and get her back on track. I absolutely recommend her for beginners and little ones. She has a very gentle and caring personality.

Mike E.

Carnegie, PA

About Mike

I am a professional percussionist and recording engineer with a Bachelors in Music Technology from Duquesne University. I have been playing for 14 years and am versed in in many drumming styles including rock, funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian. As a recording engineer I have recorded every genre from classical to metal. I cover everything from sound theory and physics to hands on application.

*** Lesson Details ***
Beginning lessons involve the rudimentary study of rhythm and their application to drumming as a whole. Building a sense of independence in each hand so that both are equally a
s comfortable and strong will be emphasized. From their students will learn the intricacies of the drumset and develop a sense of interdependence between their limbs. I will start the student with a general overview of all the different styles and as they progress we will focus in on their preferred style. A strong emphasis will be placed on how to play with other musicians and I will accompany the student on either piano or guitar.

For recording and music technology students, beginners will start with a broad overview of what studies encompasses these fields. From their we will focus in on the students topic of choice and begin with practical application to get students working with the tools and technology available to them. Afterwards, we will move into more advanced studies including sound theory, physics, digital formats, etc.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Room: computer work station for recording, drum set and percussion instruments, parents can sit in lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
-I provide sticks, other small percussion instruments
-students should provide their own primary instrument in case of large instruments

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I cover all genres and styles for percussion/drums and can work with any recording/music technology hardware/software setup.

Anne S.

Pittsburgh, PA

About Anne

Thank you for looking at my profile! Teaching private music lessons is my absolute favorite thing to do. I tailor your entire lesson to your specific needs. Love Bach? Passionate for Duke Ellington? Broadway? Your lessons will be crafted to suit your interests. No boring scales required! I graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School and Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. I've worked with students from ages 5-75 and enjoy all ability levels equally. I'm the Director of Music at a major downtown Pittsburgh church where I play organ, piano, and conduct the choir for
weekly services.  Outside of music I love roller blading, gardening, cooking, and chasing after my 2 yr old daughter. 

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that we learn best when we are having fun. Lessons are fun and flexible, yet provide appropriate musical challenges for students to master. Piano students ages five and up will benefit from using Alfred's Basic Piano Library method books, supplemented with ear training and composition exercises. My favorite piano genres are Baroque, Classical, Musicals, Pop, Blues, and Jazz.  Vocal students should be age thirteen or older and typically begin by working on familiar folk songs to develop vocal strength, breath support, and technique. Ear training, diction, and stylistic decision making are all elements covered in vocal lessons. My favorite vocal genres include Broadway, Hymnody, Folk Songs, Jazz, German Art Music, and Italian Art Music. Whatever your musical taste - I will find quality literature to suit your needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
A piano, MP3 speakers, recording ability, sibelius software and midi keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly, Alfred's Basic Piano Library method books, baroque keyboards, improvisation, composition, jazz, gospel.

Pittsburgh, PA

About Erin

Erin S. - Cello

I studied cello performance at Carnegie-Mellon University with Anne Martinadale-Williams, principal cellist of the Pittsburgh Symphony. I also studied with members of the Boston Symphony, the Chautauqua Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra and the Beaux Arts Trio. I have performed extensively around the country and in Europe, including New York City’s Carnegie Hall. In the Pittsburgh area, I have played with the Westmoreland Symphony, Altoona Symphony and spent several years as principal cellist of the Pittsburgh Philharmonic. I teach privately in the Pittsburgh area, where I
have maintained a teaching studio for over 18 years.

In addition to my classical career, I have extensive experience in rock, jazz, country and bluegrass and have been featured in over 50 recordings on cello, electric cello, upright bass and bass guitar.

Benefit from my decades of experience and there will be no limit to what you can learn!

*** Lesson Details ***
Most of my lessons follow a standard curriculum of etudes, pieces, bowing and position exercises, and duets. I allow my students a certain amount of freedom in choosing their "fun" pieces and often will transcribe popular songs that my students request. Anything from "Game of Thrones" to Macklemore to video game theme songs. I encourage all my students to learn music theory basics and improvisation skills, but I understand that improv is not for everyone and I don't push those who have no wish to learn it. I've had many adult students and understand how to teach those with limited practice time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have two cellos and a piano, music stand, and lesson books, but require students to bring their own cellos and books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical cello techniques and applying them to a wide range of musical genres. I also have had great success in teaching my students how to improvise.
