George F.

My goal as a flute teacher is to give each student a very well rounded and thorough understanding of the instrument. Lessons will be tailored to each student and will include the following: knowledge of instrument care/maintenance, tone production, technique (scales, etudes, etc), musicality, music theory, and a variety of repertoire from classical to pop.

About George

I am so glad you’re here! The music lessons for young children are full of fun, interactive activities with iPads apps and traditional methods that not only help develop a strong musical foundation and build essential life skills, but offer a unique bonding experience for you and your child.

George explained things very simply.
Alexander J.
George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.
Tracie S.
George is totally passionate about teaching. He encourages the kids to practice and do their best. He has great knowledge and understanding of music theory. He is pleasant, easy going and works really well with kids. Overall really good teacher. Recommend!

I have been teaching for over 20 years and provide an extensive and comprehensive teaching experience. Most teachers concentrate on teaching technique and learning songs. I expand upon that experience and teach students how to interpret both lyrics and the musical score which ultimately delivers a stronger performance. I teach students how to choose repertoire that best suits their voice type and are successful audition choices.
I love the energy that teaching gives me. It is always so rewarding to see a students progress and see the excitement as their vocal abilities grow!

Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson
Paul D.
I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

David was very patient and flexible with my son. I'd originally ordered clarinet lessons before COVID struck. By the time I managed to get my act together and schedule the lessons, my son had moved on to the piano and David was willing to still work with him. My son loved the lesson and it was great to hear how excited he was about the learning!

"I first met Krizstina playing a gig. I made a technical inquiry and her advice and suggestion(s) made an immediate difference; the rest is history. Krisztina is not only very knowledgeable and sensitive in her teaching, but she knows how to relate concepts so that the student grasps and understands. Since my time with Krizstina, my playing has made notable changes, not only to me, but to others as well (according to them). Krizstina is always prepared, pleasant, professional and open to suggestions."

3 Things Every Guitarist Needs To Know About Songwriting

Writing a song can be one of the most satisfying experiences you'll have with your instrument! Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares three things every guitarist should know about writing a song on guitar... As a teacher, having you develop the ability to express yourself is my number one goal. Playing guitar solos is one form of personal expression. Writing songs is another. If you've never written a song, you might think of songwriting as something that only a few special people can do.
