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 23 year-old performing musician with 7 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 powerful 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. There are usually two kits set up (my band ...

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!
Kenny J. Pittsboro, NC

About Kenny

The way of fiddling that I teach is deeply rooted in authentic old-time Southern styles, especially from the Appalachian mountain region - traditional music that I've played and taught for decades. I learned this music first hand during many visits with elder masters, from countless hours of listening to and deciphering the music on old commercial and field recordings, and over many years of playing at fiddler's conventions, on back porches, and in kitchen sessions. I have performed at major folk and traditional music festivals, and on radio and television broadcasts in the US and overseas, including A Prairie Home Companion, Good Morning America, and BBC-Belfast. With the many concerts, dances, and other venues where I've also played, I guess you could say that I have gotten around a ...

Fiddle · Online
Kenny Jackson is one of the world's best fiddle players! He is able to break down knowledge about his craft for the beginner to understand, and teach at any level. I am a beginning fiddle player, and while I am in awe of his musical skill, I still find him an encouraging, clear, and excellent teacher.
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. Music 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 ...

Singing · In studio
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.

Alli E. Chapel Hill, NC

About Alli

My name is Alli and I am a recent graduate from UNC Chapel Hill with a degree in child development and family studies education as well as a degree in psychology. While my education program focused on birth to kindergarten education, I am a fully licensed teacher from birth to 6th grade. I am currently working at The Little School at Duke as a preschool teacher in a 3-year-old classroom, but I'd also like to supplement this job by working with children in any way that I can! I have 8 years of experience with single-handedly teaching music to 100 kids per summer, ages 3 - 12, every summer at my local church. Even though it's not a paid position, I always find myself coming back because I love interacting with all the children. It's a really rewarding experience seeing how far they come

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
