I've been teaching cello for 10 years and my students have gone on to participate in All-State orchestra, and play in professional orchestras. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to produce sound and play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to read music fluently and perform with ease. I specialize in Classical, and typically use Suzuki and Klengal scale books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Byron

I love music. I love it so much that I have made it my career. I have been playing the cello for over 20 years and have studied in universities since 2002. In that time, I have worked extensively with great artists such as, Rhonda Rider, Joel Krosnick, Andy Mark, Nicholas Tzavares, and Mark Steinbe

Byron is incredible. He is so inspirational to watch, and yet he makes his skill feel achievable. He is the most accommodating and encouraging instructor I have ever had, but still pushes me to improve. I feel like I am recieving a world class education, despite the more casual goals I have for my music. Couldn't be happier!
James D.
I'm an adult and I've been working with Byron for 5 months now. We've worked in person and now through video during quarantine. It's been a great experience and I would surely recommend him!

I had no experience with string instruments and feel I'm on my way to playing the cello competently. Byron keeps things fun and moving along at a good pace. He's especially good at diagnosing the cause of any difficulties I'm having.
Sheila
Excellent for someone new to the instrument.

Thomas S.
Maggie has been great. My 5-yr old daughter is very high energy, and I was skeptical that anyone would be able to administer 30 mins of piano lessons to her, but Maggie has easily done so since day one. She's very encouraging and teaches through positive reinforcement. She's very efficient with the time. She packs a lot into a 30 minute lesson. She's punctual, and she was very flexible when I saw how much my daughter was enjoying the lessons and I wanted to increase their frequency. I highly recommend Maggie.

I craft my lesson plan individually for the student based on their level and what they hope to get out of the lesson
Not a one size fits all technique

Some students might want more vocal.exercises and working on technique and less time on a particular song they want to learn
Other students might want to spend more time working on an individual song than working on vocal.exercises

Cynthia Curtis has been a professional musician and singer in the South Florida area for many years. I have had the pleasure of hearing her sing tunes in a variety of musical genre at many of her appearances. She has always been given great reviews and is also an experienced voice teacher who has helped many students achieve their musical goals! I would recommend her highly!
Carolyn
I am a longtime friend of Cynthia’s. She is a very patient teacher, and caring individual. She is passionate about teaching voice, and with decades of professional jazz singing to her credit, you couldn’t ask for a more experienced voice coach. Cynthia’s joy for singing is infectious— I bet you’ll catch it! She is a pro in every sense of the word. I highly recommend her for all those seeking to improve their singing .

This is a class for the student with 8-10+ years of piano background. I would explore the areas where the student needs their focus. I would explore their aptitude and mastery of musicianship. I would build on their strengths and develop the areas that need improvement. I would also encourage the student to bring any current or past materials for this endeavor.

"My son has been taking lessons with Stephen for several months. He was unsure if he wanted to learn how to play the piano at first.
After the first lesson my son felt engaged, self motivated to practice and interested in reading notes. His skill in reading music, understanding some theory and playing has rapidly improved.
I attribute his sucess to Stephen. From the first lesson Stephen has been engaging, turning learning into more than directions. My son is comfortable asking questions and Stephen is great at explaining what he's asking and why.
Stephen communicates with us. We feel like we can support our son and provide him with what he needs.
I highly recommend Stephen. Hes a talented musician and excellent teacher."

"Great Singing Teacher

Rebecca has helped me reach my goal of becoming a more accomplished choir member. I sing alto and before I took lessons with her, it was very difficult for me to stay on my part. She also helped me to breathe correctly and sing without straining my voice. I have learned SO MUCH from her, from how to warm up to how to project my voice so it can be heard. I am much more confident about my voice. She is a great teacher."

"I am an adult beginner on cello, but I play a number of other instruments reasonably well. Lenna is attentive to my specific needs and adapts what we work on to focus on technique such that I don't feel, as I have with some other teachers at times, that I am dragging my feet a little bit. She is very patient and kind while also providing me with the constructive input I need. I would highly recommend her for adults, and I can see her working very well with children as well given her kind and patient manner."

You Got the Beat: 16th-Note Drum Fills for Beginners

As you progress in your drum lessons, you will learn to play more advanced drum patterns. Here, Federal Way, WA drum instructor Kendra M. shares some exercises to help you play 16th-note drum fills...  When you create a four-fill beat, the possibilities are endless. Many beginning drummers, however, tend to rely on the same pattern every time they play a one-measure solo.

However, there are elements of vocal technique and style which apply to different genres and voice types, and some singing tips for guys that are as important for the next budding Pavarotti as for the aspiring death …

Age or Aptitude: When to Start Violin Lessons

Some start optimistically young, others driven by passion start much later in life, but when is the right time to start violin lessons? Like any other form of art, there’s simply no black or white when it comes to exploring music. The right time to start can’t be measured exclusively by age. Some ambitious parents start their kids at the age of two, and while many go off to become YouTube sensations, a whole lot more tend to give up by the age of five. So what should you consider before div …
