I've taught over 30,000 private music lessons to students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. I've had tremendous success at helping students reach their musical goals and become well rounded musicians. I have an associates degree in liberal arts with a concentration on music and studied privately with several of the best teachers in Buffalo, NY. Additionally, I was in 3 successful bands, played hundreds of shows, made 2 professional recordings and have recorded other artists in my studio...I specialize in teaching beginners and children and have vast experience with both.

*** Lesso
n Details ***
I try and make the rapport with students comfortable and informal while at the same time constantly pushing them to improve and grow. I strongly encourage all students to work on all aspects of their playing, to become well-rounded musicians and study multiple techniques, genres and music theory.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dining Room is designated for music: amps, guitars, basses, recording equipment, chairs, parents must stay for lessons under 18: comfy and spacious.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need their instrument, tuner, lesson books, notebook and pen. I will provide everything else.

*** Specialties ***
I have a well-rounded approach to teaching. I teach a variety of techniques(picking,finger picking, pick and finger technique,improvisation, ear training, chord/melody playing etc.) and a variety of styles.(mainly rock, folk, jazz and blues)

Eric was great. He is obviously very knowledgeable but he is also easy to talk to and seemed to quickly understand what I knew and what I didn't. A good communicator and his set up for the lessons was very comfortable and easy to find. One hour lesson flew by!

After my first lesson I can see Eric is ready , willing and quite capable of taking on the challenge to work with me as an adult beginner on the instrument. He took the time to really get a good idea of where my skill level currently is and gave clear instruction on exercises to use in order to build from there. Furthermore, he gives a clear picture of the path the instruction will follow in order to get to the level of playing that I want to achieve.
Eric's personality combined with the spacious home studio setting provides a comfortable atmosphere of learning without distractions.
Not only do I feel Eric will be a good instructor for me but, I will also be scheduling my daughter for lessons with him to learn her third instrument, the guitar. So yes, I do recommend him for lessons!

Sylvia is doing a great job with my 5 year old son. She is patient but no nonsense in her approach. She is very good at breaking the concepts down to a child's level. She has been coming to my home to give the lessons and is always on time. She has been flexible when I have needed to move the appointment time. We are quite pleased.

Barbara D.

Twinsburg, OH

About Barbara

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood.

Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that,
you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument!

In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ensembles. Any combination of string instruments you are working with, I will work with your group to improve your cohesiveness and your musical style.

Nice to have the one on one teaching experience. If you have an issue she can stop you right on the spot that is giving you an issue and tell you what your are doing incorrectly. She also tells you what you are doing right.

She was very patient with me (a brand new student). She showed me a lot of tips and gave me insight to the violin that I did not know. Definitely worth the lesson

*** Lesson Details ***
As one of my students, you can come to expect a friendly welcome at the beginning of the lesson and then throughout expect our main goal to be helping you make your best music possible. I possess a wealth of knowledge
and skill collected from decades of practice, master classes, winning competitions, earning degrees and performing both in bands and as a solo artist.
I am relaxed and happy, disciplined and product-oriented while at the same time understanding the difference between practicing for improvement and statically repeating the same exercise or passage over and over. We want to make the most of our time during the lesson and your practice sessions by focusing on achieving your goals quickly.

*** Hello visiting students and people! Thanks for visiting my takelessons site! Before you get details about me as a concert pianist and teacher, I would like to kindly add an important announcement!

Please DO NOT book too many lessons at once! Sometimes students and teachers need to determine if they are good matches. Same for me: in order for me to be a best teacher for you, we only need one trial lesson to get to know each other:D

So, after you read about me and you think I will be the be
st match for you, please just book ONE LESSON, which will serve as a "trial lesson" And after that, if you like me and want to continue more lessons, then we will discuss further details about lessons:D

Thanks again! and I hope to hear from you soon!

Lessons with SooJi is very satisfying. I also went to one of her concerts few weeks ago. She played Totentanz with the orchestra. Her piano playing was very enjoyable, moving, and passionate, inspiring me to only be in the moment to soulfully listen and feel Soo Ji's beautiful and artful expression. She is an exquisitely talented young pianist.

Excellent with children and I sure just as great with adults. My daughter LOVES and looks forward to her piano lessons with "Ms SooJi" although she is not entirely thrilled with her daily practice at home. SooJi provides excellent tips for helping her with tough spots and is equally challenging and encouraging. She is the best thing that happened for my 7 yr old who tends to want to quit when the going gets rough with anything, and it is a joy to hear how much she has learned in a year! I wish she could stick around long enough to teach my younger one as well. She is reliable and will go out of her way to provide make up lessons if needed. We have lessons in person during the school year and Skype lessons in the summer. I was initially skeptical about the quality of the Skype lessons when she suggested it, however by the end of the summer, I was totally surprised at how much my daughter learned, and I was not disappointed in the quality of the lessons.
