Charlene is a wonderful teacher, extremely patient and experienced. I absolutely love her way of teaching my 5 year old.
Kim
I took piano lessons with Ms.Charlene for 13 years. I started my lessons with her at a very young age when I was in kindergarten. My piano journey with Ms.Charlene is an experience I will treasure forever. She is very kind, nurturing, patient and professional. She taught me musical skills that enabled me to perform confidently at recitals and complete my Advanced level CM piano evaluation. I am proud that I can pick up any piece of music and play with ease. I also volunteer to perform regularly in a hospital for patients. It brings me joy to share music with others and its all thanks to my teacher Ms.Charlene.
Erin
Miss Charlene was my piano teacher for 11 years, guiding me through the rigorous Certificate of Merit program for piano. I am so grateful to this day for her patience, kind and understanding nature, and overall expertise and knowledge. She inspired me to teach music myself, as well as pursue music as a creative passion to this day. She truly cares for all her students and I can't recommend her enough!

I often incorporate beginner piano, music theory, and ear training into my voice lessons. Many of my voice and songwriting students aim to learn how to accompany themselves, and an understanding of scales and chords on the piano helps tremendously with pitch and being able to sing in tune.

I am primarily a voice teacher, but if a student would like to learn how to play chords and scales, as well as develop an understanding of how to read music and play piano on a basic level, I have had much success in breaking down the piano in a simple and digestible way!

Brittany has been so sweet and all around amazing and very patient she has been a great first teacher and I’m so glad to have her as my teacher
Sophie
Was skeptical at first but that was quickly turned around. My daughter absolutely loved Brittany and I could see they hit if off from the beginning. The instructor was polite, friendly, very encouraging, and motivating. I was thinking this would be a short term deal for a life experience as a birthday present to my daughter but I see now that I may be in this long term! We're all excited for the next session.
Robert Crabtree
Brittany is absolutely fantastic with my 13 year old daughter who has never had any vocal training before. We are five lesson in, and from day one, you could tell Brittany really knows her stuff. We have seen fantastic progress in such a short time. Brittany's knowledge, patience, enthusiasm, and own personal talent shine through. My daughter looks forward to each and every lesson. We were lucky to find Brittany and I highly recommend her.

My name is Gretchen Tucker. I have been singing over 20 years. I have experience in a variety of choral settings, I hold a B.A. in music from Keene State College. I am also currently attending music therapy school. I am experienced in singing at weddings, funerals, patriotic, and historic events. My vocal training is popular, Broadway, religious, opera, and jazz. When I teach lessons I care much about the process, warmups, the anatomy, music theory, getting into character, vocal technique, and I have a kind and holistic approach. I believe music is a gift for everyone and that everyone can succeed. I love teaching beginners the power of music as well as seasoned musicians. I look forward to working with you.

DAVID
A talented, patient teacher, Gretchen epitomizes the best qualities for musical instruction. Her technical knowledge of music theory is by far the most complete and deepest of anyone I have encountered. She has encouraged the gradual emerging of a latent talent talent I never knew I had as I was always discouraged from attempting any musical education.

Introduction to Violin Music Notes

The violin is often considered by musicians to be one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Its roots trace back many centuries and it was clearly a definitive instrument in shaping classical music all over the world. One of the reasons it is considered a difficult instrument to learn is that it's a fretless string instrument, making violin music notes appear to be inexact, yet fingering must still be done with precision. The reward for learning this sweet-sounding elegant instrument, ho …
