Let's sing and grow your voice! During singing lessons I work to develop each individual voice through technique based exercises and songs. I have worked with singers of all ages ranging from 4 years old to 80 years old. Some students need to prep for performances or auditions while others just want to enjoy music and strengthen their voice. Each student moves at a different pace and may have specific needs, so the format of the lesson may vary slightly, however, we typically warm up first with vocal exercises to build and stretch the voice and then switch to either theory or a song the student is studying. If there is enough time in the lesson we will work on both skill sets or multiple songs. I like to work the full range of a student's voice so that their voice stays balanced and healthy. Song choice will depend on the level of the student and the genre of interest as well as which songs will best help their voice grow and reach its full potential.

About Anna

I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a mom. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Associati

Anna is a delight! She is so knowledgeable and I walk away from every lesson feeling liked I gained so much. I couldn’t be happier that I found her. She truly makes you believe you are capable of being a pianist, and as an adult student that can be difficult to believe. But she does. She’s everything a teacher should be, I highly recommend her!
Christopher O.
Warm, patient, professional teacher. We focused on proper vocal technique for our first lesson. It was fun, and I definitely intend to keep learning with her.
Janet C.
Anna was wonderful to work with. She was very sweet and patient. We loved taking the lessons and will be back.

John Krauss has been teaching our 4th grade boy acoustic guitar for the past year. When he started, our son could not clap a rhythm to save his life but now is learning to strum on beat and follow along with lessons successfully. John challenges our 9 year old with different styles and techniques that push him to the next level. He encourages our child in a warm and respectful way. We appreciate John's professionalism and patience with working with a young student. We highly recommend him. "John is a nice guy who helps me learn new chords and licks. I like my lessons!" says the 4th grader.
Mike
I thought trying to learn to play the guitar at the age of 35 with no musical background, with kids and a full time job was a daunting task. That was until I met John. I have had 30 minute lessons with John for the past year and a half. There was a steep learning curve for me in the beginning, but John remained very patient and encouraging. His knowledge of music and his ability to explain and teach in a way that I could understand is second to none! I can now play a couple dozen songs and have a great foundation of skills to play many many more! I recommend John to anyone of all ages who wish to learn how to play the guitar.
Mark
We are very happy that our son takes guitar lessons with John Krauss. John is a very skilled and versatile guitar teacher. He was adept at discovering my son's specific interests and learning style(s) and has tailored his lessons accordingly. My son enjoys, and looks forward to his lessons.
John brings a lot of experience as a musician to his teaching. For much of his life he has performed on stage as a Rock and Jazz guitarist. In addition to teaching music, John Krauss is an award winning sound engineer. He has recorded musical ensembles and soloists, as well as, audio books by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Senator Fred Thompson, and other well known authors, speakers, and public figures.

The ukulele is a creative adaptation and redesign of the machete de braga, a small stringed instrument that was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants in August of 1879. The Hawaiian people fell in love with the sound of the instrument and named it “ukulele" because the fingers of the performer dancing around on the neck and strings as a song was played resembled jumping fleas. Ukulele means jumping fleas in the Hawaiian language.

Since the ukulele is related to a European instrument and the guitar from Spain, the relative tuning is the same. It should be tuned a perfect fourth up from a guitar, so the first string is tuned to an A, second string should be tuned to an E, third string will be a C, & the fourth string should be tuned to a G an octave up. Most ukuleles have a fourth string that is an octave above what the normal progression would be of most stringed instruments. If your G string is not tuned an octave up it’s a larger size than the average ukulele G string ...

Totally would recommend Jesse for guitar teaching. He is very patient and teaches in a fun way my child was able to grasp and learn from. He is very experienced and a great teacher to learn from. My son was 7 years old when Jesse taught him guitar, and he loves playing guitar now - all thanks to Jesse.

As a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Colburn Conservatory, I look to pass on the great lessons and traditions of violin playing I've learned over the course of my career as a concert artist and pedagogue. We will work together to create a personalized curriculum, and progress at a pace that matches your comfort levels and your goals.

I've had the pleasure of teaching a regular private studio, and have given masterclasses nationally and internationally.

I love getting to know my students, and am very reachable outside of lesson times for questions, advice, and funny links! Please feel free to message me.

Hi!

I offer engaging and personalized guitar lessons for students. We build upon fundamentals skills through each lesson as the student learns their favorite songs. We also explore different aspects of music including improvisation, theory, composition, and even recording their own music. I provide study materials such as PDF files, backing tracks and videos to help students review what we cover in the lessons.

I had the privilege of receiving my B.A. in Guitar Performance from Berklee College of Music where I had the opportunity of learning and performing with great musicians from around the world. Because of my experience working with students of all ages from kids to adults, I truly believe that I can help anyone accomplish their musical goals!

I am currently only doing online lessons on Skype.

I look forward to meeting you and getting you started with lessons!

Best,

Juan

"Excellent Approach

Charlie has been a great introduction for my son Jordan into the world of Piano. He has been patient and made the lessons fun and rewarding for Jordan. Jordan is 7yrs old and practicing isn't his favorite thing to do, but somehow Charlie made practicing sound rewarding and worthwhile. Jordan loves piano even more now than when the lessons began. I really appreciate the time and energy Charlie has taken with keeping my son focused. I would highly recommend him as a piano instructor."
