Rhonda F.

Rochester, NY

About Rhonda

I started taking piano lessons in the first grade from a teacher who graduated from Eastman School of Music. I later won a scholarship to Eastman School of Music as a classical pianist. I have been teaching for 40 years and have performed in Europe and won First Place Piano Competition in New York with 200 of the best pianists in the nation performing. I wanted to quit in the 5th grade but my mother told me I was to young to make that decision for myself and she would not hear of it!
Music is now like the air that I breathe. I cannot live without it! Thanks mom for being smarter than me. Play
ing the piano should be fun at any cost. I let students play many styles of music until they find the style that calls them.
For young children I recommend the parent sit in with the lesson so the parent can help with the practicing at home. They need the extra support when starting piano lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are and should be a fun experience. I teach bits and pieces of college theory to students so they can play the whole keyboard and not just in the middle. Its nice to get students young before they develops bad habits. Piano keys should be played with the fingers and not moving the wrists. Bad habits are hard to break. My children students play like a pro, even if it is only one piece.
Through me, kids learn to love music.
I start lessons at age 4 years old to 99. Please call today to book lessons!

"Learn a little but learn it well" ~Ben Franklin

*** Specialties ***
Traditional Classical and theory. I also get students ready for competitions and scholarships. I will teach any style that will ignite the flame in your child or an adult to love music!
I specialize in children.

Fabulous Piano Teacher

I took lessons for 5 years and I play better than I ever dreamed. I enjoyed the lessons and understood the teaching with ease. Expect to have great lessons with your head spinning with tons of information after each lesson from this gifted teacher. Very enjoyable and rewarding experience to say the least. I never again found such a great teacher since taking with Rhonda. I was heartbroken when she moved.

Jazz · In studio
I began studying with Rick when I was 19 years old and spent three years as his student before moving to Chicago in 2001. In those very important three years I received an education that would help lay the groundwork for all of my improvisational endeavors to come.

I remember that what he was asking me to practice was fairly difficult, as the topic of improvisational technique and Rick's specific methodology is massive. There is so much to it that I still find myself practicing with those very same concepts in different ways of my own today more than fifteen years later. Rick was always smart about how much work he would give an individual.

It must also be said that Rick Holland is more than just a music teacher or great trumpet player. He was a mentor and helped me grow personally and musically. As I look back upon those lessons, I understand now that the real objective of that methodology isn't just to play chord changes with good voice leading or add interesting control of chromaticism in the lines: The point of all of it was to get me to think musically and think for myself. In a culture where music education (especially in jazz improvisation) has turned into painting by numbers, his approach is refreshing, creative and crucial for developing intelligence and musicality.

Trumpet · In studio
I played the trumpet from fourth grade through college but I didn't have much in the way of formal individual lessons during that time. After college I didn't touch the trumpet for over 20 years, when I decided to pick it up again as a ‘comeback’ player. While playing in a couple of local concert bands I decided I really wanted to be a better trumpet player, and take lessons from an experienced teacher as a way to reach my goal. Rick assessed my abilities and came up with a personalized lesson program to help me improve all aspects of my playing. We went ‘back to the basics’ in some areas and built on my existing abilities in others. I’m very pleased with the results and I enjoyed my instruction time with Rick. I would highly recommend Rick to any trumpet player at any level of experience.

Rick H. is a phenomenal musician, educator, and person. I studied with Rick for four years, and have remained in contact with him for nearly two decades. I learned a great deal from Rick, particularly in the areas of harmony, voice leading, jazz history, trumpet pedagogy and intonation. So many of my current musical concepts go back to my time as Rick's student. Rick has a very systematic, step by step approach to learning that is tailored to the individual student. I work throughout the Midwest as a professional trumpet player, and am extremely glad that I received my foundational training with Rick. I highly recommend Rick Holland to anybody wishing to study the art of trumpet playing or improvisation. The knowledge that you will receive from this man will last you a lifetime!

Beverly has helped me more than any other instructor I've ever had. I felt she really cared about me as an individual and did everything she could to help my vocal skills improve. With her help, I was able to expand my vocal range, improve breathing technique, and overcome confidence issues.

I was sooo nervous at first because I just didn't know what to expect from private voice lessons. Beverly made me feel comfortable! I was never afraid to make a mistake because the way she corrected me was in a loving way. Corrections were not a bad thing in her class. Corrections were a great thing and it helped me to become a better singer. I have improved in my confidence and technique because of the training style of Beverly. I will always recommend her! She is GREAT!
