I like to watch a child's face light up when they learn something; I make it fun and bring incentives (stickers, snacks, treats, lil rewards for a job well done). I make sure to ask if they've practiced (I ask for 15+min a day). I always start with the hand position and strong posture, and then start with scales to warm fingers up. I like to work on 1-2 songs per week and then as the student progresses add more challenges. I also incorporate youtube or fun art history or interesting "stories behind the songs" too if possible. (For instance, for homework, ask your parent if you may go online and view a picture or a video of a full orchestra, or watch a waltz).

About Christiana

I started playing piano when I was about 9yo. I played for vocalists in college too. I play for churches and I love to teach beginners. I love my dogs and am active outside and in the gym. I am a foodie, I love movies and soundtracks, and am an eclectic musical lover.

Anna is a wonderful, positive teacher. She's clearly had a lot of experience working with children and is a mother herself. My daughter looks forward to her lesson every week, and thanks to this she's eager to practice regularly and is seeing a ton of progress! Thanks, Ms. Anna!

As your instructor, I will teach you the fundamentals to playing guitar along with how to approach learning a new instrument. I aspire to teach any age that wants to learn, whether you are a beginner or you would like to improve basic skills. If this is your first time learning guitar, I will demonstrate basic chord structure, strumming patterns, as well as being able to read and write tablatures. If you have ever listened to a song and wondered how to play it, I will help teach you the skills to play music by ear as well. I hope that you will leave my lessons with an expansion of musical knowledge and excitement to express your own musical ideas. The skills I would teach you will follow you for a lifetime: from teaching you how to play your favorite song to showing you how to improvise and let loose in a jam session with your friends. My goal is to not only teach you how to play guitar, but also show you how to create your own music, develop your own style, and learn the fundamentals

As a musical theater performer, I perform a wide range of genres from pop-rock to legit-musical theater! No matter if you're singing Adele or Rogers and Hammerstein, it's possible to sing all genres in healthy way so that your instrument keeps getting stronger, without losing the joy for the music. With a background in the Alexander Technique and Linklater, I emphasize a healthy approach to singing. Lessons will be catered to the student's individual goals and needs, but will focus on releasing unnecessary tension and building a strong foundation for the voice.

About Lauren

The whole world has to be indoors for the next few months, so let’s make music together! I'm a professional actor/musician in NYC, and have played such roles as the Fiddler in the hit off-Broadway revival of The Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Oscar and Tony award winner Joel Grey (2019 Drama Des

Lisa (Catherine’s mom)
We love Lauren. She is making violin a great experience for our daughter (11 yrs old). She is very thorough and encouraging, and introduces interesting music that is fun and challenging for a beginner student. Our daughter says she can truly feel her own improvement, and is really happy to have additional lessons with Lauren, beyond what she receives in school. Lauren is flexible with scheduling and very reliable, and we intend to stick with her - and with the violin- for the duration!
Lauren
Lauren is an awesome violinist. I worked with her in a show and watched her tackle many different styles of music, improvise with other musicians, and collaborate on new material. I would recommend her to anyone!
Ruby
Lauren Thomas is an excellent musician with a tremendous amount of patience and a seemingly boundless supply of talents. As a fellow musician who has played professionally alongside Lauren, I have witnessed first hand her skilled mastery of both the flute and the violin -- as intuitive as she is technically proficient. Apart from her musical abilities, she's kind, fun and sensitive and would make for either a great beginner violin teacher or as an instructor for someone with intermediate skills looking to expand their abilities. Cannot recommend her highly enough! Whether you're seeking instruction in the flute or the violin, Lauren's the woman for the job.

Tracey L.
She was very thorough..plus her style of teaching will definitely benefit me in the long run!!
Debbie N.
Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

"Fawn is one of the best musicians I know (and I know quite a few), so I was honored to have the chance to work with her and become one of her students. She is good at gauging my proficiency level and working at a pace that suits my needs. Sometimes scheduling issues come up on my end, and she is always readily adaptable, understanding and willing to add extra time if forget a lesson or cancel less than 48 hours before my scheduled time. As incredible as she is, I have no doubt that her prowess as an instructor shall only increase. I would recommend her to anyone and I look forward to continually improving my craft of songwriting, playing and singing.
