Experienced piano teacher of 12 years accepting students ages 8 to adult, beginner to intermediate! I structure my lessons to build a strong foundation of understanding theory and technique. Although my preference is for classical, I encourage individuality and use Alfred’s Basic Piano Books for its broad application in various styles of music. Once the students complete the curriculum, they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to play most any music or proceed to advanced instruction.

Hi, there! My name is Laura and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2002 and have loved helping my students learn both technique and theory as I seek to motivate them to play the best that they can and to instill a love for music.

Without a doubt the best writer and teacher. Wesley helped me with my research papers and essays several times, and they have been picked as the best papers in classes of 60 students more than twice. He is very patient and on point. He teaches so many great writing tips. I highly recommend him.

Wesley is a wonderful teacher. He explains everything so well and in details. He helped me so much with writing my papers and assisted me in structuring my paper perfectly. I learned so many writing techniques from him. He is super patient and he makes sure you learn everything by giving different examples that make sense.

I am passionate about my students learning how to sing in healthy, sustainable ways so that they can be life-long singers. I am also passionate about music literacy. Regardless of what style of music you study, basic music reading skills are very important. I love teaching all ages and for my young singers, I use the Full Voice Workbook Series: a wonderful set of singing books that engage young singers in kinesthetic, auditory, and written exercises for music. Voice lessons are catered to your specific voice needs and the style of music you wish to study.

I am a classically trained voice teacher with knowledge in vocal pedagogy. I believe that science-based vocal production leads to healthier, life-long voice users. I made my debut as "Fia" in the world premiere of Jake Landau's opera, "Pieta" in 2021 and I have performed in several opera choruses. These include: Eugene Onegin, Le Nozze di Figaro, La Traviata, and Tosca.

so happy I chose to have Linda as my teacher ! she's patient with me (a beginner who does not always have time to practice regularly) and is super helpful with giving me tips and advice on how to be better. Linda can also play ANY song and has helped me learn tons of my favorites. We're working on Annie's Song right now and Linda has helped me not only understand how to play the notes but why we play them a certain way (heck yeah music theory !)

Linda is great. I left with a big smile on my face!

Linda is awesome. After 3 lessons I'm getting pretty good at a couple of basic rolls and have a song to work on. She is patient and knowledgeable, and has helped me get basic technique going. So far so good.

Catherine has been a terrific violin instructor for both my 14 year old daughter and 13 year old son. She is very passionate and methodical in keeping them motivated and engaged in learning the violin. She has been great and the kids love her as a teacher. I highly recommend Catherine for anyone considering an online violin teacher for their teenage kids.

My daughter has resumed her violin playing now that she has lessons with Catherine. She had stopped for a year, and after a few lessons her tone started to sound just like it was when she left off. She improves with each virtual lesson, but most importantly she really enjoys them. I also appreciate that we can schedule lessons
at intervals other than weekly. Thank you, Catherine!

"I have never taken any formal french classes and have been learning French on my own and wanted formal lessons from a native French teacher. It has been a great experience learning French from Zach. He has a very practical and systematic approach to teaching French. He challenges students to do things out of their comfort zone such as calling hotels in France to practice conversational French comprehension and reciting a poem to help with French pronunciation. I highly recommend Zach to anyone looking to learn French at any level."
