Mark S.

Philadelphia, PA

About Mark

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing music in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use this to help you to become a great musician.
I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about music but about music teaching. As a result of these experiences, I vowed to teach students music that is meaningful to them.

Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to form bands, join music groups in school, or just find a friend to jam with. Not only does this raise the level of musicality, it is a great motivational tool.
After high school, I studied music at Colorado State University, where I focused on jazz performance, theory, classical performance, and double bass pedagogy. I earned a bachelor of arts in music from Colorado State University in 2000.
I have been a musician for 16 years. I have played rock, pop, classical, jazz, and electronic music professionally for over 10 years. I have performed in the U.S. and Europe with many talented artists, and I have won various awards in performance and academics.
Although I enjoy a busy professional career in music, I am extremely committed to teaching the young and casual learner as well as career oriented individuals. At this stage in my career, I am enthusiastic towards the education and development of talent.

My home studio is fully equipped with guitars, basses, keyboards, amps, and digital recording equipment. I am highly knowledgeable in audio and midi recording through the use of recording software.
Apart from music, I have been an English teacher for eight years. I recently completely work my Master's degree in music theory. I look forward to sharing my skills and experience with you or a member of your family.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons usually follow the following steps:
Presentation of material Instruction Practice Performance
In a typical lesson, we may take a look at a piece of music through an audio or video recording. After we listen and/or watch, we discuss and examine the music. For example, this could be as simple as saying, What do think about this part? It could also be more in depth - What's the time signature? Next, we focus on a specific part to learn. The student learns by watching demonstrations, making attempts at playing it, and listening to suggestions and instruction. Just as there are many ways to teach there are also many ways to learn. I try to incorporate as many different methods as possible while being mindful of different learning styles to ensure that the student is successful. Finally, when the student has become sufficiently proficient on a piece of music, we'll play it together as a team. Sometimes, I accompany a vocalist on guitar to get a pop/rock feel. For my guitar or bass students, I trade between lead and accompany roles. I may bring other accompanying instruments to the lesson for a different vibe. The idea is to have fun playing music, and I like to have fun.
People often ask if I am strict or laid back. I am neither. We work hard, but we'€™re also so focused and motivated that the time flies by before we know it.
Lastly, I never ask my students to copy anyone. I encourage my them to be original. The music I give them is only a guide. The goal is to motivate them to play what is in their hearts.

Mark has been great! I don't fit easily into a student level because I have had some piano training before -- but not in a long time. He has picked up very quickly on my skill level and has been very good about letting me pick my own music and helping me to learn. I feel that I am progressing as fast--or eve faster--than I had hoped. I highly recommend him for piano!

Tim is great, he is teaching my son so much, he loves going to his lessons and learns so much from Tim, he taught him how to read music and the different types of drums and the different sounds they make, He tells everyone he is taking drum lessons. Tim answers any questions we may have and knows the drums very well, he is also very flexible and outgoing, Tirstan has lots of fun and enjoys his lessons very much. I will recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for a drum instructor.

Tim is a great teacher. He introduced Teddy to the different types of drums and cymbals. He allowed Teddy to play the different drums so that he could hear that each drum has a different sound. He also showed him how could change the pitch of the drum. Teddy really enjoys his lessons.

Jeffrey W.

Haddon Heights, NJ

About Jeffrey

My background is as a classically trained singer and voice teacher. I have studied with numerous leading voice teachers and singers in the United States. I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Florida State University in Voice Performance and I studied for my Doctorate in Musical Arts in Vocal Pedagogy from The University of Miami. My education has provided me a great understanding of how the voice functions correctly and how to relate this to any level of student, from completely inexperienced singers to advanced singers. My teaching style focuses on making sure that the different p
arts of the voice are working correctly then focusing on the coordination of the entire system working together. Whether you are preparing for an important singing engagement or just trying to improve your skills, I would love to help you achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every voice lesson will consist of equal time instruction through vocal exercises and instruction through song. I have a very laid-back and fun approach to singing and teaching. I feel that the studio should be an enjoyable place and the voice lesson should be a time of the week to which the student looks forward. During the first lesson the student and I will set achievable goals in achievable time spans specific to the level and skill of the singer. I will give the student all the tools to achieve their goals, including weekly skill and muscle training exercises tailored to the student's needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In home studio, Baby Grand Piano, Guitar, Microphone and amplifier, seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need a piano or keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice, using the pricipals of natural acoustics and comfortability in vocal production. Creating a resonance that is natural, beautiful, and individual to each singer.

Jeffrey rocks! I'm 59 and after a lifetime of not properly singing, I'm finally learning how to correctly sing and protect my instrument. It has been about three months and I've improved exponentially. Jeffrey accepts you at whatever level you are at and brings you along from there. He is knowledgable, patient, and always positive!

Excellent teacher! I couldn't be more elated with my decision in choosing Jeffrey for my singing instructor. Not only does he possess highly impressive credentials but he has an amazing way of combining his highly trained teaching ability with his wonderful ability to make you feel comfortable, confidant and at ease. Each week I am amazed at his teaching technique, his engaging personality and his obvious eagerness in helping you achieve your goals. Have had a couple of vocal coaches in the past however Jeffrey is by far the most outstanding teacher I've had and feel privileged to have found him. Thank you, Jeffrey!

I am a patient, encouraging teacher and enjoy finding new and creative ways to help my students succeed. Since 2010, I have tau

My promise to all students: I will pass on the love for and dedication to music that my teachers gave to me. I will always be ready to give 110% percent in my lessons and expect the same from you. Whether you want to be playing stadiums in 6 months or just want to learn your favorite songs, I will tailor lessons to fit YOUR needs and always give the type of supportive, honest feedback that I think you need.

***Lesson Details***
I like to start off by having the student tell me what kind of music s/he is interested in, what goals (if any) s/he has, and assess how I can best use my experience to help him/her to succeed. I always suggest that students practice every day, whether its for 15 minutes or 5 hours, to get the most out of every lesson.
