Experienced teacher with their Doctorate in music and 10 years of experience. Lessons are tailored to the individual students interests and ability and can include composing music, music history, and music theory! Perhaps we can work in even some kazoo playing! I prefer teaching students of all levels, from twinkle twinkle to the Mendelssohn violin concerto but specialize in intermediate and beginning students. Fun facts: I can be heard playing on the most recent Lego Movie 2 soundtrack as well as Charlie's Angels and Bad Boys 2. Come learn from a professional musician!

Dr. J is fabulous. I am a credentialed music teacher at a public school and she comes to teach sectionals and ensembles. She has a strong rapport with the kids, who adore her, while simultaneously having high expectations. Students feel appropriately challenged and love working with Dr. J.

Ted is extremely knowledgeable about music theory and is a talented guitarist. We had talked briefly before our first lesson so he could assess my goals...and he literally managed to fill in the missing pieces and get me the information that I needed in the very first lesson to be able to achieve my goal. It's an overwhelming amount of information, and now it's on me to silly what I've learned and practice, practice, practice! But in five short lessons my understanding of music has changed dramatically, and as a result, my playing has improved as well.

Thanks Ted!

As a teacher, a nurturing, encouraging, and comfortable environment can be expected for any student who chooses to pursue trumpet or piano lessons with me. I believe music lessons should be fun and reassuring for students, in addition to, providing constructive feedback for their musical development.

"I took guitar classes from Greg for about 8 years, bass lessons for about a year, and drum lessons for about a year, and eventually worked with him as an instructor as well; I'll let you know that you will be very hard-pressed to find a better teacher than Greg - he takes the time to really delve deep into all your lessons and give you the best experience, as well as wonderful material to work with, in order to help you fully reach your potential as a musician. On top of that, he really gets to know you and caters to your style of learning, and helps you recognize your strengths and weaknesses, overall making your learning experience the most fruitful it can be. Besides, he makes the learning fun! I highly recommend and respect Greg as a musician and an instructor."
