My specialty is helping you write amazing melodies. I can coach lyrics too but that is not my biggest strength. I can help you learn how to put chords to your melodies and then how to convert your song into the style of your choice. I can then help guide you on making a demo of your song.

About Howard

I enjoy working with complete beginners as well as seasoned professionals. I teach classical and popular styles. I specialize in teaching learning how to learn, sight-reading, technique, improvisation, chord-reading, songwriting. One of my specialties is to help you break through your most stubborn

Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended
Matthew
Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

This review is long overdue! Jacqueline has been so patient and kind with me in my violin journey. I truly appreciate her passion for the violin and for teaching. My bow hand has never looked better!
Adam S.
I started taking lessons with Jacqueline after having bought a violin and done some practicing on my own for a few months. She was quickly able to formulate lesson plans for me based on my background and experience. She has also been very good about correcting my technique and pushing me to challenge myself, and is always helpful in answering my many questions. Overall she is a very knowledgeable, professional, down-to-earth and friendly instructor.
Maria
My 11 year old daughter has studied with Jacqueline for 1.5 years and is really enjoying the process. Jacqueline is a kind and warm teacher which is very encouraging. My daughter wants to practice and improve in order to impress her sweet teacher. We are very happy with lessons with Jacqueline. She even teaches Disney music... not just the classics. She will look for whatever my daughter is interested in playing and then plays with her. I highly recommend her.

Hi! My teaching is inspired by my classical training, while incorporating work experiences in improvisation, jazz, and pop. I hope to help students engage with music and equip them with tools to be uniquely creative and expressive.

I am 12 years old and have been playing cello for 6 years. Caleb was my instructor at the Mark O'Connor string camp. The week before our lesson, he recorded an accompaniment for a piece we would be working on, and it was great to get a head start and to be able to play with him. We worked on bluegrass practicing techniques and improvising with blues scales. It was some super cool music and thanks to Caleb, my playing is improving!
Yutae(Albert)
Being my very first cello instructor, Caleb not only taught me how to play, but gave me a desire. Usually, the first experience determines the outcome of what happens, for example, if you never enjoy an instrument, it is inevitable that you would drop it quite soon. However, Caleb found me real enthusiasm and motivation. Even though I am no longer his student, I always look forward to hearing any news about him, from a simple hello to him posting a new video of his performances. Without someone like him, I probably would have had given up cello after my first year. He is the most enjoyable and helpful instructor so far.

I believe that learning music is one of the greatest gifts that people can obtain and achieve in life, because if builds self-confidence, provide happiness to ourselves, and appreciate different cultures. Through singing, it has the power to touch the empathy of people through communication of words as singers deliver these texts within their sounding voice.

Having the talents in music is not predetermined whether you have them or you don’t, but I firmly believed that musical talent is a skill that can be learned and enriched. Through hard work and practice, I do agree that everyone can achieve these skills and become an exceptional musician. It is in my environment as a voice instructor to encourage and uplift my students through the very best of their capability by learning wide variety of songs while maintaining healthy vocal production throughout their instructions.

Through my previous mentors, I had received voice instructions with intense and thorough understanding of ...

I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat.
Tom
James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

"I studied music theory with Adam because I needed extra help for college classes, and he was a huge help! There were so many concepts that I knew a little about, but Adam helped fill in the gaps of knowledge and familiarized me with the concepts so well, that I could teach them myself! He is patient, humorous, and a complete joy to take lessons from."
