As a composer of new music, it is essential to support the local community of musicians through lessons which support individual interests and patiently encourage progress at every level. I teach all ages and can work with any level of skill in terms of instrument ability, music theory, or music engraving.

If you have Engraving/DAW software like Finale, Sibelius, Ableton, or Logic we will utilize that for games and projects. Helping each student develop their compositional style while increasing their knowledge of music theory, improvisation, and engraving skills are my main goals.

Whether you would like to increase your music theory knowledge, learn how to write music, arrange a

Ive really enjoyed my experiences with Josh. He is well versed in all styles of composition and specializes in more modern avant-garde styles. Our lessons in modern counterpoint have really improved my harmonizations skills and expanded what I thought was capable for chords in a band setting.(i.e. jazz big band, concert band, orchestra, etc.)
Kaitlynn

Piano technic, reading music, and learning to express your self on the piano....all of this will be taught in a fun but challenging way

About Ronda

My love of music started at the young age of 6 with piano lessons. My parents always said, "piano lessons were the best investment they ever made." Because of their investment it took me through my growing up years playing piano and singing at church and school then into college with a music major.

"Monica has been working with my 10 year old daughter over the past year to help prepare her for musical vocal performances. My daughter is quite picky and introverted and simply LOVES her voice lessons with Monica! In addition to vocal technique and hygiene, they discuss and practice telling a story and dissect the emotions behind the song. Monica is so warm, positive, engaged, and can make anyone feel comfortable, seen, understood, and more confident in their performing ability. The hour lesson flies by for my daughter and Monica makes her feel special to boot!"
