Daniel B.

Fort Mill, SC

About Daniel

Hi, there! My name is Daniel and I can't wait to meet you! I love music, and have played the piano since I was 6 years old. I was one of those kids who loved to practice. I am passionate about teaching and love imparting the techniques, wisdom, and practicality that I was taught to my students. I understand that every student learns differently and I cater each lesson to the individual student. I use a combination of fun games, unique teaching techniques, and electronic aids to adequately teach each lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano students should provide an piano with a full set of
88 keys (acoustical or digital is fine). I will provide metronome and any other teaching aides that may be used during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in sacred with a proficiency in hymn improvisation. I also am proficient in classical teaching.

I love music and enjoy sharing it with others. So whether you are 5 or 90, or somewhere in between, let's have some fun!

Heather C.

Charlotte, NC

About Heather

Teaching violin has been a rewarding experience for myself and my students! Using the Suzuki method, students are able to play the violin at young ages which is great for brain development, learning to control sounds, and also learning to be disciplined in as as they learn to practice in small amounts! The Suzuki method is a great starting point, but other methods are also fun: Mark O'Conner, All for Strings, Essentials for Strings, Sassmanshaus, etc.

I had my first online lesson today, and I can already tell that Jon is a great instructor. He has you play most of the lesson and provides lesson materials. He's knowledgable, motivating, patient, and he builds your confidence as a player. I'm looking forward to continuing lessons with him. Thanks Jon!

Referred to Jon by a friend. I knew within 2 minutes of meeting him we were going to be happy with our choice. I love to listen in while he is instructing my granddaughter. He is so patient and kind but yet firm enough to manage a beginning student and keep them motivated. My 12 year old granddaughter practices every day without prompting because he advised her that was an expectation. I would highly recommend him!
