Want to hone your ability to play a song by ear? Hear a melody in your head and then be able to recreate it on your instrument? If so, you'll find a lot of value in focusing on ear training. With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best. I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

I trained in theory at UCLA with Paul Reale and continued my studies throughout my years in graduate school. I am well versed in analyzing music and know a lot of repertoire. I have skill in the Sibelius music writing program and used Finale for years so I can help budding and more advanced composers as well.

I am 43 years old and was scared to take on such a difficult instrument but I really wanted to learn how to play the beautiful cello. I had my first lesson and am very happy with Claire. She is friendly, accommodating, patient, and explains her lesson in a clear and easy manner (as easy as you can get with the cello). I had a lot of questions and she was very open in answering all of them. Although I am still at the very very beginnings of my journey, I am very excited to continue with the cello lessons, thanks to Claire.
Leslie Mattesich
The first lesson was excellent. I completed my first private cello lesson since playing about 44 years ago. It was wonderful. The teacher is very organized and very nice. I thought maybe the lesson would be a lesson of remembering what I had forgotten from so long ago, but I actually learned new things. I'm excited to attend the next lesson.

Claire works at your pace, but expects you to progress at a steady rate. It's the perfect balance between understanding the student's ability and reasonable expectations for advancement.

I want to be able to help you achieve your personal singing goals in a relaxed, fun, and healthy way. Improving musicianship skills like ear training and sight reading are incorporated into the lesson, as well as practice techniques that will help you to see dramatic improvement in short periods of time.

Jessie Shulman is a fantastic voice teacher. I've studied with her for 2 years. She is professional, knowledgeable, and crafts our lessons around the skills I need to work on, and helps me select repertoire to learn that utilizes those skills. She easily identifies what I'm struggling with and patiently guides me how to improve. She gives wonderful tips on how to stay vocally healthy.

I've made enormous progress in my vocal performance. I highly recommend Jessie for voice lessons.

Born with perfect pitch, I started playing the violin and piano at the age of four. I am a classically trained violinist. Music is my biggest passion and I am currently auditioning for graduate programs. I did my undergraduate training from the Boston Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. I received scholarships from both institutions. I also hold a Bachelor of Science degree from University of California San Diego (UCSD). My past teachers include violinists from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the concertmaster from Indianapolis Symphony.

I wholeheartedly understand that studying and understanding an instrument and its complexities is challenging, but it can also be incredibly rewarding and fun! It is a great way to express oneself and connect with others. I believe in incorporating music theory and ear training into learning the instrument, especially at a young age. I care deeply about each student's need and desire in terms of musical growth and promise to make the lessons

Joe is amazing when he gives vocal lessons. His examples are spot on. His ability to read into your strengths and weaknesses helps you to customise your lesson and focus on those aspects that'll give you quick and sustainable results. Thank you Joe.

My first lesson went very well! Alessia is patient, explains clearly, and is easy to understand. I am Excited for our lessons to come

As someone who as always loved singing and believing I had a good voice I self taught myself for many years. It was only when I had my first lesson with Alessia I realized how much a real professional is needed. She showed me my true potential and unlocked talent I always knew I had. She has a special way a picking out exactly what I needed to tweak or change that gave me instant results. After every lesson I get more and more motivated and confident about my voice.

I am a professional oboist with a great deal of experience. I have played in an orchestra with Dimitry for 5 years. I find his principal clarinet playing to be very fine. He is also a very good colleague. While my relation to him is not teacher-student, I judge from his warm personality that he makes an excellent teacher."

"Set Me Up For My Career

Andrew was my first bass teacher and I think that he's still one of the best teachers I've had. I had already been playing for a few years, but I felt like I was missing some of the knowledge that all musicians should have.

Andrew was extremely patient and very knowledgable. When we were learning things I was unfamiliar with (I.e. Modes, syncopation, reading, etc.), not only did he explain these things completely, but he then showed me how to use them in the real world. He taught me effective practicing routines, helped me with my horrible left and right hand technique, and showed me that theory really isn't as scary as it sounds.

I'm now living in Nashville pursuing the whole music thing. I don't think I would have been as successful down here without Andrew's help. Loved our lessons! Thanks, dude!"

"I feel so honored to speak on the behalf of Christine, she has truly helped me with my own small business. I'm a professional real estate agent that enjoyed good old fashion family fun, which includes karaoke. I was never a singer, but always enjoyed singing. I figured it was worth an effort to take a few lessons with Christine and see if I liked it. Well, I loved it!

I've been enjoying music and singing every since I started taking lessons with Ms. Christine. I now give monthly dances and include karaoke with prizes; I'm a featured singer/host and it's been WONDERFUL. Never would have thought voice lessons could bring so much meaning to my life. Forever grateful. Thanks so very much :)"
