Tyanna W.

Raleigh, NC

About Tyanna

Music is one of the biggest, most important things in my life! I love how music allows me to express myself. A lot of joy is brought to people through music. I strive to change lives for the better through singing and teaching others how to be great singers! I have been teaching for about 7 years, but performing for 20. As a performer, I believe I am able to provide insight from both a teacher's and an artist's point of view. I have been in the same position as my students so I am able to relate. *** Lesson Details *** In my studio, you will find a very relaxed environment. While I am strict when it comes to proper technique, I believe in encouragement and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. You will not leave my studio feeling unaccomplished or discouraged. I create my own ...

We enjoy having Mr. Charlie come to our house and teach our 5 year old son Xavier how to play the piano. He makes sure our son stays focused and goes at a pace that works for him. Xavier has learned a lot, and we are grateful to Mr. Charlie.

Excellent piano teacher!! Very patient, kind, reliable and communicates very well with my 10 yo son. She is so enthusiastic and has really gotten my son interested in music, despite that he is very shy. I have been impressed with how quickly my son has learned to play the piano in just a few months. We have been so thrilled with Carolyn that our other two children are to start lessons this month!!

Carolyn B. is an excellent piano teacher

Carolyn B. has been teaching my 6yr old daughter for a year. Carolyn has a very engaging style of teaching that works extremely well for kids. She has a tested ability to skillfully refocus kid's attention by injecting fun into the lesson and reassuring the kid that "they can". She's extremely patient, is always pleasant is good at easing a child into stepping up their ability and confidence. From the start, I signed up my daughter for 1-hour lessons, unsure if she will focus. I'm amazed at how Carolyn keeps her engegaed through the hour. My daughter's skills and interest in piano continues to grow. I strongly recommend Carolyn B. to teach piano.

Great!

Carolyn has been teaching my 9 year old for just over 2 months and he has learnt immensely. She is very patient, friendly, soft spoken and my son loves her! He is a very shy kind and doesn't adjust to newer people so quickly but she is just phenomenal!

Autumn B.

Raleigh, NC

About Autumn

I have been actively and enthusiastically involved in music all my life. I started playing violin 17 years ago. I never would have expected it to take me where I am today. It has guided me to become a confident, respectful, and creatively evolving adult. I am an active violinist in my community as well as surrounding communities. I am also a 1st place national award-winning composer of the MENC's young composers competition and encourage my students to not just play but to be creative on their instrument, and learn through the process of ear training as well as sight reading. I have been teaching full time for 7 years and LOVE that I am always growing as an instructor as well as watching my students grow! I teach mostly classical style violin, but do have students who are mainly ...

We could not have asked for a better violin instructor for our 7-year-old daughter. Autumn is exactly what she needed: someone engaging, flexible, creative, and most of all fun! Obviously she is tremendously skilled and a master of her craft, but this does not always make a great teacher. But Autumn is a great teacher, which makes her an absolute gift and inspiration! We are so lucky to have found her! Thanks, Autumn!!!

Autumn is encouraging and enthusiastic and helpful and fun. I am an adult and an experienced violinist who stopped playing for 20 years. I am just getting back into it and am delighted to find that I haven't forgotten how to read music and play, but I am really wanting to improve my sound. Autumn is happy to work on just what I want and need. I don't believe I could have found a better instructor for me.

Autumn falls magically!

So here I am on yet another fork in the road and now I have REAL aspirations of making wonderful sounds with my violin! I'm just an old silly man chasing a dream, and Ms. Autumn is making it happen! No matter how much I make annoying squeaking ear drum popping noises, she's right there making it all sound.....imaginary! Ms. Autumn rocks! Ms. Autumn rolls! She is the best of the best! I can't wait for each new lesson! Thanks so much!!!
