Karen is a great teacher

Karen teaches my 5 yr. old daughter violin. She loves Karen and has progressed quicker than I thought she would. Karen is very good with little kids and really knows how to motivate them. My daughter looks forward to seeing her each week and is willing to work for Karen. She especially likes it when Karen plays with her. I would definitely recommend Karen as a teacher!

Gabriel A.

Carrboro, NC

About Gabriel

I'm a 24 year-old performing musician with 8 years of teaching experience. I'm an active member in the NC Triangle music scene as a performer and recording artist. I also teach Pilates, where I learned the value of self-awareness and balance, which is at the core of my teaching principles.

I feel I have something to offer to all levels and ages and have found my method to be highly engaging for young children and beginners.

:: My Home Studio ::

I have a living room studio in Carrboro equipped with my band gear, making for fun multi-instrumental lessons! Recording gear and a power
ful PA allow us to play to various audio tracks and record our own material. These tools are invaluable and key to my personal development as an artist.

:: Teaching at Your Home ::

You don't need a drum kit to start taking lessons!

I'll bring a drum pad, sticks, and a metronome, and occasionally some hand drums. All you need to supply is a pen and paper.

Learning drums with Gabriel was an excellent experience. He's patient, skilled, communicative, and eager to be teaching. I'd recommend him to folks of all ages and skill levels.

I've collaborated on a number of musical projects with Gabe -- mixing, writing and recording in studios. He is extremely talented and has always been a pleasure to be around. I would definitely recommend him to my own students (I teach guitar in Durham), as his patience and ability to explain complicated ideas is excellent.

My son who is 13 took lessons with Gabriel and had a great experience. We were only able to pay for 30 minute lessons due to a tight budget, but none the less Gabriel used those short times to teach my son as much as he could! Putting his musical knowledge to use while incorporating things such as the importance and benefits of stretching your arm muscles before playing was very cool and useful, and I would highly recommend lessons with him to anyone considering drum lessons!

Jaime E.

Jamestown, NC

About Jaime

***Teaching Philosophy***
I believe music is essential in education, as it teaches self-discipline, improves mental function, and enriches the soul. As a voice teacher, I believe in teaching healthy technique and opening doors to many genres, and fostering creativity and self-expression through composition. I encourage students to participate in choral and dramatic groups to hone their craft, as well as to help push them past their self-imposed limitations. As a cello teacher, I encourage involvement in orchestras and chamber groups, as they teach teamwork and develop listening skills. Mu
sic is such an incredible form of personal expression, and I aspire to help my students find their true musical voices and share them with others.

***Experience***
I have taught private music lessons since 1999. I am currently a music teacher for grades 7 through 12 at Westchester Country Day School in High Point, NC. There I conduct three choirs, teach Advanced Placement Music Theory, and teach general music (which includes basic guitar and piano).

I feel that performance is an integral part of music education and will make sure that my students are given ample opportunity to perform, whether it be at an Open Mic Night, as part of a choir or orchestra, or in a musical production to nurture each of my student's performance abilities.

***Lessons***
First and foremost we need to have fun. Music is fun and so should the lessons be. When it comes to practice I expect students to spend time outside of the lessons practicing to ensure that they see results.

I work with a variety of methods and concepts to ensure that I am building a solid understanding of music in my students. I work on intonation, music theory, sight reading, and expression.

I am comfortable teaching:
Voice: Beginning to Professional (Ages 12 and up)
Cello: Beginning to Intermediate (Any age)
Piano: Beginning to Intermediate (Any age)

***Voice***
I have extensive background in classical technique, and teach proper, healthy belt technique as well. I am comfortable teaching music from all genres and styles. I focus on developing a beautiful and unique sound for each student while maintaining a healthy, flexible voice.

***Cello***
I teach beginning and intermediate level cellists who either rent or own their own instrument. I encourage my students to join an orchestra or string ensemble, as there is no substitute for the experience of being part of a musical team. Cello students will work out of a technique book that will help build a solid foundation. Once basic skills are learned we will start to search out more advanced music.

***Piano***
For piano lessons I am best with beginners. I specialize in working with students who are just learning about music and want to learn the basics of piano. I am comfortable working with all ages of beginning piano student. I can also work with singing students who are interested in also accompanying themselves. Piano students will begin using a technique book that will help build basic skills. Once these are solid, we will start to search out the specific music you are interested in playing. So if you love a song on the radio, keep notes and we'll learn it.

***Studio Equipment***
Private music studio in my home with a Yamaha electric grand piano. I have built a small recording booth and equipment and software for quality recording and editing.

Jamie is a fantastic instructor. In my first lesson alone I felt Jamie knew exactly what my strengths and weaknesses were and how I could improve. She was super easy to work with and very encouraging throughout. She stretched me to try new things that immediately I could hear an improvement. Would highly recommend Jamie for those who are looking to take their singing to the next level.

During my career as a professional singer, Jaime has always been the first person I call for help with my CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music) technique. Over the years, she has helped me tremendously to develop a healthy belt technique and to increase my belt range as well. It would be an understatement to say that she knows her stuff. Oh, and she's an incredible classical singer, too. Just saying.

In addition to the breadth of her vocal knowledge, Jaime is as passionate about and dedicated to her students as you could ever want from a teacher. She always makes learning music fun and accessible, and she will be a champion and friend to you. Jaime is one of the finest singers and teachers I know.

Blayne Z.

Greensboro, NC

About Blayne

As a teacher and mentor, I strive to teach each of my students to be a complete vocal musician. By this, I mean a vocal musician who has complete mastery of all aspects of a fully trained, confident, and competent musician. This includes knowledge of vocal production, musicianship, music history, and music theory. It is my job as a teacher to teach each student how to control their instrument and make the most beautiful sound. I also strive to engage each student in the history and theory of music. These tools are the fundamentals of music and therefore must be a component of a complete vocal
musicians training. Musicianship is the creative aspect of each musical artist. It is developed and discovered throughout the training process. I believe that discovery is the greatest tool I have to help unlock the innate creativity in each student. Discovery is beneficial to both the student and teacher because through discovery we can only continue to learn how to sing and how to teach.
