Veronica C.

Philadelphia, PA

About Veronica

With a voice that has been described as €œexquisite, sublime, and pure beauty, soprano Veronica has performed with opera companies and orchestras across the country while keeping firm roots in her hometown of Philadelphia. She has performed with small choruses and full orchestras, in intimate outdoor venues and major opera houses. She is an Artist in Residence at Temple University and has sung as a core member of many local choral ensembles, but frequently travels outside of the area to perform.

Recently returned from Shenandoah Bach Festival€™s Mozart C minor mass, and her first Countess w
ith the Shenandoah Bach Festival€™s concert version Le nozze di Figaro. 2010-2011 season also took Veronica on tour for the Northeast Louisiana / Union Parish Arts Councilâ™s Amazing Grace (featuring music of various religions, time periods and styles).

In 2008-2009 Veronica sang the role of the High Priestess for Opera Birmingham’s Aida, and added several new roles to her repertoire, including Liu (Turandot) with Opera Birmingham, the title role in Lakme with Concert OPERA of Philadelphia and Nedda (I Pagliacci) with Sycamore Opera and The Cousin (Madama Butterfly) with the Opera Company of Philadelphia. Of her finessed and dramatic portrayal of Liu, the press remarked that (she) sang passionately in the tear-jerking Act 1 aria, "Signore, ascolta," her final high pianissimo notes suspended in pure beauty. In Act 3, she provided one of the opera's most startling and poignant moments when she stabbed herself at the end of "Tu che di gel." She also performed a recital of opera and Broadway favorites to open Opera Birmingham€™s performance season and traveled to Louisiana to celebrate the holidays as a soloist for the Northern Louisiana / Union Parish Arts Council€™s I™ll Be Home for Christmas concerts.

Veronica performed two roles in Porgy and Bess in 2008, singing Clara with Opera Birmingham and Lilly with Lyric Opera of Chicago. She also appeared with Opera Delaware as Gianetta in The Gondoliers and won fifth place and audience favorite in the Opera Birmingham Vocal Competition.

2007 was a year of rave reviews for Veronica on both the opera and the concert stage. Of Opera Birmingham€™s production of Cenerentola, Michael Huebner of The Birmingham News remarked "The role of Clorinda was engagingly sung, Veronica milked the sister's arrogance and ineptitude for all their worth. This was a five star production!€ Her recital performance with famed mezzo Marietta Simpson and bass Kevin Maynor was praised by the Birmingham Times, €œVeronica'€™s agility and confidence in the upper register created some of the concert's most sublime passages. Her embellishments in 'Ride On King Jesus' were exquisite." Additional concert performances took her Muskegon, MI for performances with the West Shore Symphony, to Tennessee for the Memphis Symphony€™s televised Home for The Holidays€ concert and to Spoleto, Italy for the invitational Festival di Due Monde.

During 2006 Veronica performed Sandrina in La Finta Giardiniera with Elysium Concert Opera of Philadelphia and Fiordiligi (Cosi fan Tutte) with Delaware Valley Opera Company, and the title character in Little Red Riding Hood with Opera Birmingham. Michael Caruso of the Chestnut Hill Local called her a romantic and pearl voiced Fiordiligi. She also performed several musical theater selections with Bristol Riverside Theater for their Summer Musicale and then their holiday-themed Winter Musicale. Anita Donovan of The Trenton Times remarked, œVeronica'™s €powerful version of Summertime€™, €˜I Loves You Porgy€™, My Man€™s Gone Now€™, and (the duet) €˜Bess You Is My Woman Now€™ makes one long or a full-scale revival.€

2005 Veronica performed Edith in Pirates of Penzance with Gulf Atlantic Symphony of Florida, Violetta (student matinee performance) and Aninna (main stage production) for Center City Opera Theater€™s La Traviata. That summer she returned to Ash Lawn Opera Festival and appeared as Dolly Tate in Annie Get Your Gun. She was also chosen to be Gretel in Opera Birmingham’s educational tour of Hansel and Gretel. After leaving Birmingham she sang Donna Elvira with New York Opera Project, in which Debra Banerjee of the Scarsdale Inquire called her performance €œvery emotional€¦ very dramatic presence.€

Veronica spent most of 2004 away from her Philadelphia home performing with Opera Colorado as Gretel in Hansel and Gretel (outreach ensemble) and Berta (student matinee performance) in Il barbiere di Siviglia. She also performed the roles of Susanna (one performance) and Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro with Opera Theater of The Rockies in Colorado Springs, and performed with the Colorado Symphony in their €œOpera on The Rocks€ concert at Red Rocks. That summer she was chosen as an apprentice at the Ash Lawn Opera Festival singing the Boylen Sister in Annie and Berta (cover) in The Barber of Seville.

In 2003 Veronica made her professional debut performing the title role in the Savoy Company€™s production of Princess Ida, and appeared with the Young Artist Program at Natchez Opera Festival performing the role of the Princess in Fair Means of Foul. That same year she also performed at Shaker Mountain Opera as Gianetta in L'€™elisir d'€™amore and Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro.

She has also been a soprano soloist for the Charlotte Symphony, Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia, Mendelsshon Club of Philadelphia, Ursinus College, In Clara Voce, and Orquestra Sinfonica Municipal de Caracas to name a few. She is known for her very versatile vocal abilities. Some demonstrations of her flexibility include her appearance with the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia as the voice of Joan of Arc (a part that previously was only sung by members of the well-known group Anonymous 4) in Richards Einhorn'€™s Voices of Light and her appearance as soloist in the Monteverdi Vespers 1610 with Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia.

Veronica’s upcoming engagements include First Lady in Opera Delaware's production of The Magic Flute, covering Pamina in the same production, and Soprano One in the solo quartet of Opera Company of Philadelphia's production of Manon Lescaut.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching piano/music reading and voice lessons of all ages since 2003. I really enjoy exploring the journey of learning about music with my students.

With voice lessons we learn the fundamentals of singer (breath, "placement", pitch accuracy, rhythm accuracy, and diction) Most students see a marked improvement in their singing ability in about 3-6 months. Singing is not always easy, but in a nurturing, safe environment I allow my students to realize their true potential.

In piano/music reading lessons I teach beginners. At these lessons you will learn basics of music reading music, rhythm exercises, and the basics of music theory. My attitude about playing piano is the same as singing, it may not be easy all the time but the time invested in learning will be worth the reward of being able to play an instrument!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Front living room, full electric piano, two chairs and a sofa, room for parents to sit in on lesson

Jacob C.

Gibbsboro, NJ

About jacob

The first time I played a drum set was in 3rd grade music class. I was hooked. I now love the feeling of getting a piece of music, scratching through it a few times, making mistakes, fixing mistakes, rehearsing, rehearsing more, then playing it on stage for a stale audience that ends screaming for an encore.

In Elementary School I experienced 2 types of music lessons.
#1 Lessons that were too structured and boring because students were not able to have success at each lesson. The focus was on the structure vs. enjoyment.
#2 Lessons that were very fun and challenging to work towards
because students could see progress each week.
From that experience I am very confident that my enthusiasm towards learning percussion will be challenging and rewarding.

My music career has taken me anywhere from small church venues to theater orchestras including:
-Kensington Community Church (Troy, MI)
-The Rochester College Concert Band (Rochester, MI)
-The Box Theatre (Mt. Clemens, MI)
-Hope Community Church (Mt. Laurel, NJ)
-Liberti Church (Center City Philadelphia)
-Epic Church (Center City Philadelphia)

*** Lesson Details ***
You will soon learn that I am reliable, organized and high energy. Lessons are organized but flexible just like any good drummer.

Objectives:
#1 You will be on the fast track in school music programs. (You will do better in other classes as well)
#2 You will learn to be self-disciplined with practice. (You will have more confidence in challenging situations)
#3 You will be more confident in your ability, musical and non-musical.

Typical Lessons:
-We will review the previous lesson to measure progress and make any corrections necessary.
-New and challenging material will be offered with instructor help.
-Students will take the new material home to practice.

Practice:
I know that the best students we turn out are the students who practice the most. 99% of the learning comes through practice. No one learned to walk in 5 minutes, just like no one learns music in 5 minutes. Practice and mistakes are the difference between average and unbelievably good. If you want to be good the time spent in the lesson is just the recipe. You (student) are the one who makes it happen through regular practice. I remember hating practice sometimes when I was a kid. Practice should be fun. Focused practice should be really challenging and really fun. The feeling of satisfaction going from not being able to play something to learning it and nailing it is the best! This only comes through practice.

Depending on level after basic lessons (1-7 months) students will be able to keep simple time, have basic ability to use all tools in their drum kit and be able to include simple fills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio specifically for drumming, an electronic drum set, an acoustic set, amps, recording equipment, seating for parents with video feed so that you can check in during lessons.

Students should be able to practice anywhere anytime. They don't need fancy equipment, just willingness to practice. I can help you get creative!

*** Travel Equipment ***
To be determined based on the student's needs and location.

*** Specialties ***
On a typical day you will catch me listening to and playing songs by:

Bastille, Imagine Dragons, Paramore, Lorde, RHCP, Adele, Hillsong, Coldplay, U2, Zac Brown Band, Cream, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Journey, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, the Stones, Sugarland, Blake Shelton, Earth, Wind, Fire; ZZ Top, Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Diamond Rio, Boston, Bob Seger, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, The 4 Tops, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Bob Marley, etc.

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.

*** Studio Equipment ***
12 x 12 room...equipped with all instruments:
piano---Casio 88 key fully weighted,
guitar,
bass,
amps,
computers,
and recording software

*** Travel Equipment ***
If students do not possess the instruments they want to play, I will provide all the necessary equipment for them.

*** Specialties ***
I teach rock blues, jazz, classical, and pop music.

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!

Brian M.

Marlton, NJ

About Brian

Hey! My name is Brian and I teach guitar, bass guitar, and music theory out of Duke's Bike Music Studio in Marlton, NJ. A little about myself, I'm 33, married and have two kids. I've been playing guitar and bass since I was 12 and professionally teaching music since 2008. Aside from playing in various bands in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, I'm a guitarist, upright bassist, and vocalist in the 553rd Air National Guard Band of the Northeast. I'm also the Music Director for the 553rd's popular music ensemble. I studied music and music education at Camden County College and Berklee Col
lege of Music.
Over the years, I've developed a method of teaching that uses songs my students like as the example for learning technique and music theory. My students are of all ages and range from never-played-a-note to gigging musicians looking to change things up a bit. Duke's Bike Music Studio is conveniently located near the Promenade shopping center. My rates are competitive and my schedule is flexible. Hit me up and we can get you scheduled right away.
Thanks!

Brian is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher. I have gone through some challenging phases while learning basic music theory and technical skills on bass guitar, and Brian has been instrumental (see what I did there?) in encouraging me through those bumps in the road. Learning to read and perform music can sometimes seem daunting, but he's really great at breaking down the information into fun exercises and simple explanations. You can tell he really enjoys what he does.

I decided to pick up the guitar in my 30s and soon realized I was in over my head. I spent a few hours with Brian and he has been tremendous in helping me progress. He is a personable guy and has a knack for explaining instructions and techniques clearly. He gives a ton of feedback and has an eye/ear for correcting issues. Also, Brian makes music theory very approachable which has given me a greater appreciation and understanding of the complexities of music. I highly reccomend.
