Veronica C.

Philadelphia, PA

About Veronica

With a voice that has been described as €œexquisite, sublime, and pure beauty, soprano Veronica has performed with opera companies and orchestras across the country while keeping firm roots in her hometown of Philadelphia. She has performed with small choruses and full orchestras, in intimate outdoor venues and major opera houses. She is an Artist in Residence at Temple University and has sung as a core member of many local choral ensembles, but frequently travels outside of the area to perform.

Recently returned from Shenandoah Bach Festival€™s Mozart C minor mass, and her first Countess w
ith the Shenandoah Bach Festival€™s concert version Le nozze di Figaro. 2010-2011 season also took Veronica on tour for the Northeast Louisiana / Union Parish Arts Councilâ™s Amazing Grace (featuring music of various religions, time periods and styles).

In 2008-2009 Veronica sang the role of the High Priestess for Opera Birmingham’s Aida, and added several new roles to her repertoire, including Liu (Turandot) with Opera Birmingham, the title role in Lakme with Concert OPERA of Philadelphia and Nedda (I Pagliacci) with Sycamore Opera and The Cousin (Madama Butterfly) with the Opera Company of Philadelphia. Of her finessed and dramatic portrayal of Liu, the press remarked that (she) sang passionately in the tear-jerking Act 1 aria, "Signore, ascolta," her final high pianissimo notes suspended in pure beauty. In Act 3, she provided one of the opera's most startling and poignant moments when she stabbed herself at the end of "Tu che di gel." She also performed a recital of opera and Broadway favorites to open Opera Birmingham€™s performance season and traveled to Louisiana to celebrate the holidays as a soloist for the Northern Louisiana / Union Parish Arts Council€™s I™ll Be Home for Christmas concerts.

Veronica performed two roles in Porgy and Bess in 2008, singing Clara with Opera Birmingham and Lilly with Lyric Opera of Chicago. She also appeared with Opera Delaware as Gianetta in The Gondoliers and won fifth place and audience favorite in the Opera Birmingham Vocal Competition.

2007 was a year of rave reviews for Veronica on both the opera and the concert stage. Of Opera Birmingham€™s production of Cenerentola, Michael Huebner of The Birmingham News remarked "The role of Clorinda was engagingly sung, Veronica milked the sister's arrogance and ineptitude for all their worth. This was a five star production!€ Her recital performance with famed mezzo Marietta Simpson and bass Kevin Maynor was praised by the Birmingham Times, €œVeronica'€™s agility and confidence in the upper register created some of the concert's most sublime passages. Her embellishments in 'Ride On King Jesus' were exquisite." Additional concert performances took her Muskegon, MI for performances with the West Shore Symphony, to Tennessee for the Memphis Symphony€™s televised Home for The Holidays€ concert and to Spoleto, Italy for the invitational Festival di Due Monde.

During 2006 Veronica performed Sandrina in La Finta Giardiniera with Elysium Concert Opera of Philadelphia and Fiordiligi (Cosi fan Tutte) with Delaware Valley Opera Company, and the title character in Little Red Riding Hood with Opera Birmingham. Michael Caruso of the Chestnut Hill Local called her a romantic and pearl voiced Fiordiligi. She also performed several musical theater selections with Bristol Riverside Theater for their Summer Musicale and then their holiday-themed Winter Musicale. Anita Donovan of The Trenton Times remarked, œVeronica'™s €powerful version of Summertime€™, €˜I Loves You Porgy€™, My Man€™s Gone Now€™, and (the duet) €˜Bess You Is My Woman Now€™ makes one long or a full-scale revival.€

2005 Veronica performed Edith in Pirates of Penzance with Gulf Atlantic Symphony of Florida, Violetta (student matinee performance) and Aninna (main stage production) for Center City Opera Theater€™s La Traviata. That summer she returned to Ash Lawn Opera Festival and appeared as Dolly Tate in Annie Get Your Gun. She was also chosen to be Gretel in Opera Birmingham’s educational tour of Hansel and Gretel. After leaving Birmingham she sang Donna Elvira with New York Opera Project, in which Debra Banerjee of the Scarsdale Inquire called her performance €œvery emotional€¦ very dramatic presence.€

Veronica spent most of 2004 away from her Philadelphia home performing with Opera Colorado as Gretel in Hansel and Gretel (outreach ensemble) and Berta (student matinee performance) in Il barbiere di Siviglia. She also performed the roles of Susanna (one performance) and Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro with Opera Theater of The Rockies in Colorado Springs, and performed with the Colorado Symphony in their €œOpera on The Rocks€ concert at Red Rocks. That summer she was chosen as an apprentice at the Ash Lawn Opera Festival singing the Boylen Sister in Annie and Berta (cover) in The Barber of Seville.

In 2003 Veronica made her professional debut performing the title role in the Savoy Company€™s production of Princess Ida, and appeared with the Young Artist Program at Natchez Opera Festival performing the role of the Princess in Fair Means of Foul. That same year she also performed at Shaker Mountain Opera as Gianetta in L'€™elisir d'€™amore and Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro.

She has also been a soprano soloist for the Charlotte Symphony, Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia, Mendelsshon Club of Philadelphia, Ursinus College, In Clara Voce, and Orquestra Sinfonica Municipal de Caracas to name a few. She is known for her very versatile vocal abilities. Some demonstrations of her flexibility include her appearance with the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia as the voice of Joan of Arc (a part that previously was only sung by members of the well-known group Anonymous 4) in Richards Einhorn'€™s Voices of Light and her appearance as soloist in the Monteverdi Vespers 1610 with Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia.

Veronica’s upcoming engagements include First Lady in Opera Delaware's production of The Magic Flute, covering Pamina in the same production, and Soprano One in the solo quartet of Opera Company of Philadelphia's production of Manon Lescaut.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching piano/music reading and voice lessons of all ages since 2003. I really enjoy exploring the journey of learning about music with my students.

With voice lessons we learn the fundamentals of singer (breath, "placement", pitch accuracy, rhythm accuracy, and diction) Most students see a marked improvement in their singing ability in about 3-6 months. Singing is not always easy, but in a nurturing, safe environment I allow my students to realize their true potential.

In piano/music reading lessons I teach beginners. At these lessons you will learn basics of music reading music, rhythm exercises, and the basics of music theory. My attitude about playing piano is the same as singing, it may not be easy all the time but the time invested in learning will be worth the reward of being able to play an instrument!

Valerie B.

Wilmington, DE

About Valerie

Hi there! My name is Valerie. I'm a certified music teacher that loves to see a person grow in their love and ability for music. With 19 years of teaching privately, experience teaching publicly in elementary school music classrooms, enjoying several years as a Kindermusik (preschool music) teacher, and a school year teaching with VSA arts of Delaware (teaching music to those with disabilities), I find it thrilling to see a person of any age & background grow and blossom in their passion for music!

Though I enjoy and have experience at teaching all ages from children to adults, I spec
ialize in teaching ages 5-19. I would describe myself as a preschool/elementary/middle school music teacher that teaches privately. ;) My studio is filled with many smiles, stickers for every accomplishment, and a treasure box of cool prizes for those who are practicing regularly and did a great job in their lesson. Lessons are a time where children can feel like music really is fun and enjoyable to learn and experience!

In addition to being a teacher, I am also a singer/songwriter, and performed for 6 years at local coffee shops and outdoor events within Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey. I am also a member of a local professional caroling group called Yuletide Singers which performs seasonally in places like Longwood Gardens and corporate functions. My history for performing stretches back, though, to my years as a puppeteer/children's performer, touring with a team doing school assemblies and evening family performances. I'm always excited to bring my understanding and experience with performance to my students!

**And, with excitement, I must add that TakeLessons named me "Teacher of the Week" on October 4, 2010! What a great honor! Thank you TakeLessons!!**

*** Lesson Details ***
Our time spent together will be filled with many smiles & laughs because that is probably why you want to take lessons -- because it makes you feel wonderful inside!

Within 3-6 months, we'll begin discovering how to read music and understand the language of it. We'll learn how to play/sing some of your favorite songs and learn some that you might not know. We'll discover what you really want to learn and achieve through taking lessons, and we'll work toward those goals!

For the intermediate piano student, we will begin understanding basic Music Theory and scales and will even take a look at how chord symbols work. Soon, you'll be learning how to accompany yourself and others as you sing! For singers, we'll learn about vocal techniques, breathing, getting your best vocal sound and discovering how to take a song to its potential! We'll also learn performance techniques, how to work with a microphone, have a great stage presence in front of a live audience and begin learning how to read music and even get familiar with the piano keyboard! For all my students, it's a journey that is exciting, unique to each individual, and one we will embark on together!

Because music is a performing art, I coordinate two music recitals each school year for students who are interested. This is an optional event, but is encouraged as part of the learning experience. It is usually held at a local firehall and presented in a low-stress and fun way with refreshments that follow!

*My studio is in a safe, family-friendly home & smoke-free environment. We also having a loving canine member in our family... a Yellow Labrador Retriever named Maximus. He is energetic and friendly. You may or may not see him since the entrance to my studio is through our back door, off the main house.

So! What do you say? Shall we START THE MUSIC? :)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are enjoyed in a dedicated music room; keyboard (full-size with weighted keys and sustain pedal)

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

I specialize in music education for all children, including ones with special needs. I feel it is so important for a child to start out with a fun and wonderful experience with music and performing. My approach is simple and fun and understandable for the young mind.

For my more intermediate students, I enjoy taking them to the next level of understanding in their instrument as well as music theory.

Karen S.

Wilmington, DE

About Karen

I hold a Bachelor of Music Education Degree from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. I have studied piano with Gisa Adler at New School of Music in Philadelphia, PA. I taught public school in the Conestoga Valley School District in Lancaster County, PA and I have taught private piano for over ten years.
I love music and I love teaching - seeing my students progress and reach their goals. I believe music should be a pleasant experience and a demanding and ill - spirited teacher can ruin a student. I am NOT one of these. You will find me patient and supportive.

*** Lesson Details **
*
To be an accomplished pianist you must learn all the basics well. These include music symbology which enables you to read music so you can translate it into the sound on the piano. In order to play the music written on the page you must train your fingers to do what you need them to do - so you will have finger exercises and scales to practice to enable to play pieces/songs you like. In order to accomplish all this we will use a piano method designed to teach you these things little by little so you won't get overwhelmed. One step at a time towards your goal - self enjoyment, being the life of the party, accompany the chorus, play the songs you hear on the radio or perhaps even become a renowned pianist on stage or in the theater. Whatever your goal you will need to practice and you must have a piano or at least a keyboard. The method we use will depend on the student's age, reading level, past experience with piano or other instruments and I will take into consideration your goals. If you are interested in popular music there will be a point (when you are ready) when you will be able to add this type of music to the lesson music. How quickly you grow musically depends greatly on the quality of your practice time - thus you will determine your rate of progress.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I like to purchase new materials myself for the student based on their needs at the time. They need a decent notebook for listing practice items. I usually have the method book, with note-speller for beginners, theory for more advanced, and additional pieces (non-method) as appropriate. Hanon is a staple. I use various other materials to remedy finger technique and rhythm issues as learned from my teachers and those devised by myself.

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to use a variety of materials. At the first lesson I assess reading ability, interest, physical ability and attention span to determine what materials are appropriate for the student. All students will learn scales, finger exercises, pieces and theory. I have used Thompson, Schaum, Pace, Fletcher and Alfred in my teaching - and frequently a combination there-of.

Barbara N.

Brookhaven, PA

About Barbara

I have been singing for as long as I can remember. It is my very favorite activity. I have transformed my love of singing into a career.

I have been teaching music lessons for over 25 years. When you study with me you will have the advantage of that experience. I have extensive experience teaching students of all ages. Throughout my teaching career I have taught students with varied backgrounds and diverse needs. If you are a person who was told not to sing by your music teacher, don't give up! I have taught many children and adults to match pitches and improve their singing voices.


I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Moravian College and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Temple University. While at Temple, I studied standard vocal repertoire and Early Music. I have also completed graduate courses in Early Childhood and Elementary Education at West Chester University.

I served on the faculty of Suburban Music School for 17 years where I taught voice, piano and recorder lessons. I also directed the Children’s Choir and the Women’s Choir. I was formerly on the faculty of Delaware County Community College where I taught courses in the Music Department; and of Temple Music Prep where I instituted, developed and maintained a vocal program at Temple University’s Ambler Campus.

In addition to teaching I was employed for eleven years as a chorister at Christ Church Christiana Hundred in Greenville, DE where I have had the opportunity to sing for such notable conductors as John Rutter, Sir David Wilcox, Sir Philip Ledger, Stephen Cleobury, and James O’Donnell. Previous choral work has included singing for Dr. Ifor Jones and for Michael Korn. I perform in solo and chamber music recitals throughout the Philadelphia area and in Cape May, NJ and with a Celtic group called Celtic Women and Friends.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice Lessons

When you study voice with me, you will start with the basics - posture, breathing and tone production. If you have studied before, we will review these areas and brush up on anything that needs work. The next step is to learn some vocal exercises to warm up and develop your voice. When the exercises are going well, we will begin to work on songs. You will need to learn some classical songs because they help to develop your voice, but we will also work on the kind of music you like best. In addition to songs, we will work on solfege (do, re, mi, etc.) which helps to train your ear and to improve your sightreading ability. If you don't know how to read music I will teach you that. If you read music but have some gaps in your knowledge, we will fill those in.

I teach what is called bel canto (beautiful singing). It is a healthy vocal technique that will help you avoid vocal problems. When you learn to sing with this technique, you can sing any style of music you want. After a few months of study, you should be able to tell that your voice is growing stronger, that you have better breath control, and that your range is increasing.

Although I have high expectations of my students, I am relaxed and friendly. If you love to laugh, we will enjoy that together!

Piano Lessons

When you study piano with me you will enjoy playing a variety of songs from your lesson book. As you advance, we may add a repertoire book which increases the number and variety of songs you play. There are many excellent piano methods. I use different methods for different students, depending on their needs.

Lessons will include posture and proper hand position, warm-ups, songs and music theory. Music theory is the study of notation and how music is put together. You will have a workbook with exercises for this study. If there is a particular style of music you would like to play, we will look for music at your level to add to your lesson. After a few months of study, you should know how to read basic notation and be able to play a number of songs. You will also have increased your knowledge of musical notation and harmony.

I expect my students to practice in preparation for their lesson every week. I am relaxed and friendly, so that should help to put you at your ease.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stand, stereo equip, seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching the bel canto style singing. With this technique, a person can sing any style of music she or he chooses.

Philadelphia, PA

About Adam

I have been passionate about music all of my life. I have been teaching guitar and piano for 9 years. I'm a doctoral student at Chestnut Hill College pursuing a degree in clinical psychology with plans to become a music therapist. I learned guitar and classical piano under 2 private teachers while pursuing my Psychology degree and music minor at Rutgers University in NJ.

Music was a way for me to find peace, structure, confidence, and an outlet for personal expression and creativity outside of my everyday life. I've grown as a person and a musician through music. I get excited when I see
my students learn enjoy playing something new. I love music more than anything else and that love is something I try to bring out in my students. Once there is love for music, everything grows naturally. I teach to help my students find those strengths in themselves to live a fulfilling life through their instrument.

***Lesson Details***

We create daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to achieve.

Guitar: After 3 to 6 months of learning with me, you will have a basic knowledge of chords, how to read musical notation, strum to play. Most importantly, you will have learned 3 or 4 songs of your choice so that you can experience the joy of expressing yourself through music.
To achieve these results, you must be willing to practice 20-30 minutes a day.

***Specialties***

I specialize in teaching students to learn to play by ear and improvise songs based on their tastes, style, and ability level. I also walk students through how to write and record semi-professional quality songs with drums, vocals, guitar, and piano. Music genres I cover are mainly Pop, Pop/Rock, Folk, Blues Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative, and Classical (piano only)

*** Studio Equipment ***

I provide a comfortable, quiet room with live instruments, and playback and recording equipment. I expect students to bring a guitar, books, sheet music, picks, and a tuner.
Instruments:
1. Taylor Acoustic Guitar
--picks, tuner, and capo
2. Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar
-- Marshall 100W Amplifier
-- Classic Cry Baby Wah Effects Pedal
3. Casio PX-310 Weighted 88-Key Piano Keyboard

Playback and Recording:

I had some background with piano from childhood but Adam's taught me some music theory fundamentals that I hadn't learned before. Getting a lot out of it and highly recommend.
