As a harp teacher, all of my
students play scales, arpeggios, and technical exercises in
their lessons. I believe having a strong technical base is the foundation for
every part of playing and you can't learn without it. I will set the repertoire
for students according to their technical progress and although I may
take into consideration a student's desires to learn a certain piece, there has
to be time and they have to be ready for it. I have both short term and long
term goals for each student that involve theory, technical ability, and
repertoire both orchestral and solo. Adult students still have to learn
technique, it makes things much more fun and easy six months later, I promise! Beginning students will learn how to read notes, understand basic theory, and technique in a short amount of time, so don't be scared if you have never had a music lesson before.

I require all students make
at least an hour a day commitment to practice. I teach mostly the ...

Alexandra has met all my expectations. She is very patient. I feel like we are moving along at a good pace. I had zero musical experience and after only 3 lessons can read basic sheet music and actually have music come out of the piano!! I am enjoying the whole process.

I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write.

Yuexin is an excellent Mandarin teacher for kids. My 8 year-old has started lessons and is progressing well. Yuexin researched and picked out a good textbook for kids. She is patient, clear, and easy to schedule with. We are happy!

Though I started out arranging purely for string quartets and orchestras, everything I've written in the last two years has been for a diverse and endlessly personal ensemble of musicians, whether it's fire extinguisher players or last-minute trombonists. I'll show you the ropes of arranging and orchestrating for orchestral rock bands, bluegrass trios, string duos, and everything in between. The world of arranging is powerful in its ability to bring musicians together and bring to life pieces of a scope far beyond your own sphere, and I'd love to kickstart you on that journey!

About Kelly

I'm a student biologist, chemist, writer, violist, violinist, pianist, guitarist, and music arranger (not usually at the same time). I primarily play viola in symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles; occasionally I'll jump to violin in pit orchestra productions for musicals. I'm currently pursuin

Guitar was my first instrument, the one that set me off on my musical journey, and guitar lessons were what helped me develop my passion for music. My goal now is to inspire a love for music in others and guide those who are seeking a career in music. I am a patient teacher well versed in classic rock, pop, blues, acoustic, metal, funk, and r&b. I also teach jazz and classical guitar, and can prepare those planning to attend college for music. In lessons we will develop a personalized lesson plan that best suits your goals, whether you’d like to learn your favorite song or prepare an audition/jury piece. Music theory will be incorporated as it pertains to your overall goal, and music lessons will center around tablature as well as lead sheets, playing by ear, and traditional music notation. Concepts like the circle of fifths, chord progressions, scale theory, improvisation, and transposition will all be covered. Included in the cost of lessons are all printed materials, play along ...

Ive really enjoyed my experiences with Josh. He is well versed in all styles of composition and specializes in more modern avant-garde styles. Our lessons in modern counterpoint have really improved my harmonizations skills and expanded what I thought was capable for chords in a band setting.(i.e. jazz big band, concert band, orchestra, etc.)

I began playing the piano when I was 3 years old in Japan. I have the Yamaha certification of piano instructor, which I passed the exam when I was 16. I played in many music festivals held in the city as the pianist and competed in many youth competitions.

I was diagnosed with tendinitis when I was 15 and I was unable to play competitively after that. However, I still enjoy playing the piano and love teaching the joy of being able to play the piano to let the heart out. It’s relaxing and exhilarating at the same time.

In addition, practicing the piano is great for brain development especially for younger children. However, it doesn’t matter if you are young or old, playing the piano is great for brain health and mental health as well. I look forward to working with kids, adults or seniors!

"First session was great. David appraised my skills (ha), picked up where I needed to go next, and created a lesson plan on the spot. He did not ask me to buy more lesson books, but used the ones I brought from a previous class - which I appreciated. He says that if I stick to the plan, I'll be playing Maple Leaf Rag in two months. Game on!
His studio is very well organized & equipped, and we went right to work, beginning and ending on time."
