I love teaching piano. In my eight years of experience, I've learned several piano methods, and I've developed my own approach which balances playing, listening, and analyzing music. My students have told me they appreciate me for my clear, simple way of explaining things, my enthusiasm, and the personal attention I give to each student. My primary goal is to train well-rounded musicians, and offer the benefits that entails, such as discipline, critical-thinking, and creativity.

About Shahin

I love teaching piano. I've taught for eight years, working with children and adults of all levels of experience. My students have said they appreciate my patience, enthusiasm, and careful plan for each lesson to achieve new skills and understanding. Each lesson is accompanied by written exercis

I teach all levels of trumpet with a completely custom lesson plan designed for each student. Trumpet playing should be fun and as effortless as possible!

We will cover:
How to play trumpet (tone, range, articulation)
How to read music
Techniques for better sightreading
Body use (how a relaxed body can lead to better playing)
Music Theory (how does music work and how can I use this knowledge to my advantage?)
Mental aspects of music (overcoming stage fright, preparing for a performance)
All styles are covered from jazz to classical and everything in between.

About Mike

Everyone is different so the way I approach teaching trumpet is different for everyone! The goal, however, is the same. To be great trumpet players and have fun doing it. I'm here to teach anyone and everyone how they can truly enjoy and immerse themselves in music through the trumpet.

Brian was very patient with my son. He made sure he was aware of his instructions. He even guided him back to the correct path when he was unsure of the information. Great teacher!
Jaesung
Tremendously knowledgeable and able to teach complex things very simply. Everything he taught me was so much more profound and important to understanding music that I could have imagined. Highly recommend him as a mentor if one is at all interested in music.

From our experience in working with Colin, he seems to be a good instructor, patient but also encouraging to advance and not worry about being perfect. Only issue we had was he was late to a couple lessons, but he's rearranged his schedule so that isn't an issue anymore.

Impressive pianist; look forward to my lessons...

She knows how to explain the lessons so that my daughter understands the concepts. Even after the lesson, my daughter was so eager to do her piano homework and even practiced some more on her own."

"Not only is Zelda a pleasure to be around, she is also a fantastic vocal coach. For me she was able to really pin down the areas of my voice that I struggled with and assess my range and pitch in a variety of ways so I could track my success. Having taken vocal lessons before from other teachers, I could see a definite difference with Zelda. Other coaches will waste your money and time with just hanging out or talking, but Zelda provides real value and results from day one. I 100% recommend her."

"Remi is a sweet and wonderful teacher. He is patient and easy going with lots of life lessons as well as music lessons. Learning new a new instrument is "never hard, just challenging and fun" as Remi always says. I have been taking Ukulele lessons with him for a few months now and am amazed at my progress. His home is very comfortable and welcoming. His wife is often near by and always friendly with a hello and kind gesture. He is also flexible with schedule changes as my work schedule can change from week to week which is helpful. I highly recommend picking up a new hobby and working with him as your mentor and teacher."

Easy Ways to Build Up Your Breath Support | Tips for Singers

Mastering breath support - and continuing to improve it as you progress as a singer - is crucial to your success. Here, Toledo, OH teacher Elizabeth B. shares a helpful exercise to try... As a young singer I had no idea how important breath support was to singing. I would stab blindly at a phrase and hope that I had taken in enough air. Most of the time, I was unsuccessful. It wasn’t until I finished my master's degree that I had any kind of understanding of how to sustain my air. Now that …
