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.

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.

So far my daughter is pleased and is looking forward to working with Joe. She has only had 1 lesson so far but it was smooth sailing and all went well.

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've been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now, and it is definitely a highlight of my week! Michael was curious as to why I wanted to play the clarinet and has subsequently brought me books with Klezmer, Classical Duets, Jazz and Tango music. I had taken classical lessons for many years, but I can honestly say that I progressed so much more with Michael. He is fun to work with, and always finds the places where I have progressed. He is very skilled at finding new challenges to explore and does so in a most supportive way. Can't recommend him highly enough!"
