*** Lesson Details ***
I am interested in the needs of each individual student. I aim to prepare each student to be able to fluently read and understand musical concepts during the course of study. Students can explore classical and popular genres, as well as participate in recitals to help improve their understanding and appreciation of music.

*** Specialties ***
For beginning students, I emphasize the importance of rhythmic comprehension, correct technique and theoretical understanding as an important musical foundation. Depending on the students' level and interests, I then customize my lesson plan and assignments to their specific needs.

Singing lessons

Jina made Kylie feel comfortable during lessons and allowed her to participate in one of her recitals. I feel the lessons taught her how to vocalize and breathe properly and help bring her out of her shell as she is normally kinda shy in a crowd and new people in general.
Thank you Jina, it was a pleasure. :) We look forward to seeing you after Summer.

About Ree
Hey there!

As a Vocal Coach and Performance Coach, I am thrilled to help my students find freedom to sing in their own style, while staying healthy with good technique.

I specialize in working with beginner and intermediate Adults and Teens, teaching healthy technique, performance and confidence. Singing is a vulnerable thing, so it's very important for me to create a sense of safety for every student to feel comfortable enough to begin to explore their voice and self-expression. As a singer songwriter myself, I've battled with stage fright and know the frustrations it brings. That personal experience along with my work with abuse survivors, has given me a special sensitivity and understanding of the emotional needs of my students, enabling me to help them work through their roadblocks in life.

I have studied under some fabulo
us coaches over the last 20 years, who have taught Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber, Natasha Bedingfield, Hayley Williams and more. All of this I bring to my students with passion and confidence, knowing that they can truly achieve their goals!

Are you ready to get started on finding freedom in your voice? I'm here to help and am rooting for you!

~Ree

Ree is an amazing instructor for my 7 year old daughter!! She has been working on her breathing techniques, vocal exercises and practicing her favorite song from Frozen! My daughter can't get enough and the lesson time flies by. Ree developed an instant rapport and is excellent at teaching to such a young (easily distracted) girl! Thank you Ree!!

Best Teacher Ever!

Ree has not only taught me how to control my vocals and different practice routines but she has taught me to believe in myself and learn that you can do anything you set your mind to. I never knew my voice could do so many things until she taught me to experiment. She is super nice and down to earth. I know i don't have to feel judged or shy around her. She is patient and very knowledgeable! I definitely recommend her to anyone!

About Jessica
I have 20 years of playing experience along with a Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. I was the section leader of my university's orchestra as well as a full-scholarship member of the university quartet. As a professional gigging musician, I have played with Il Divo, Mario Winans, La Jolla Symphony, Doctor's Symphony, Porta Caeli Chamber Players, and the quartet La Dolce.

I am a member of MTAC (Music Teacher's Association of California) and can sign my students up for Certificate of Merit. This is a music study program with an annual evaluation and written assessment. Stand-out students will be invited to play at the Branch Recital.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons differ slightly depending on the student. In general, it starts with scales for intonation or working on vibrato, moves on to an etude or exercise, and culminate
s with work on a piece of music. But not every student works well with this method, so I will add in some musical worksheets and ear training games for those that require lessons with more variety.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can come to your home to teach. I will bring all necessary method books and teaching materials.

I recently graduated with a Master Degree in Music from Aaron Copland School of Music and I am passionate about helping people achieve goals with music that once seemed impossible. I have studied music for the past fifteen years and have had the opportunity to participate in numerous master classes and music festivals around US and Europe and study with some of the most distinguished music artists.

ory classes to students of all ages and levels.Throughout the years of experience teaching and inspiring my students, I have found that anyone who has love for music, desire to learn and patience for the process, can progress and enjoy the music in their lives. As the legendary singer Ella Fitzgerald said "When there is love and passion, you can 't go wrong."
My goal with every student is progress and my mission is to provide the highest level of music education to everyone. I am currently leading an extensive private flute/piano studio in New York City along with being a faculty memebr at Rhythm School of Music in Queens, NY.

· Flute · In home
The flute is a family of musical instruments in the woodwind group. Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aero phone or reed less wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening. According to the instrument classification of Hornbostel–Sachs, flutes are categorized as edge-blown aero phones.[1][not in citation given] A musician who plays the flute can be referred to as a flute player, flautist, flutist or, less commonly, fluter or flutenist

This is hard to accomplish but Simona is doing it. She has been very cooperative and helpful in scheduling lessons. It has been a pleasure so far and I look forward to great reviews in the future.

About Richard
My goal is to help students ENJOY the piano by finding ways to make it easier and doable. I have a very useful approach in helping students become self sufficient to sight read very well, to see patterns, understand music theory to either help them play well, or to even create their own music(I compose a lot of great music as well)

I couldn't sight read very well until I was 16, but I had a great sight reading teacher that showed me how to develop it, and now I can say that I'm one of the best sight readers out there that I know. I was a ballet pianist at Brigham Young University for several years where all I did was sightread binders full of ballet/classical music. I play for choirs, church congregations, jazz bands, or musical jam sessions all the time, and I couldn't do that at all if I didn't learn how to sight read well.
I would love to help you learn the piano, and I will do my best to make learning as effective as possible. I especially enjoy teaching those who quit and would like to try again, because I know what that is like.

Concerning my musical background, I've played, arranged, and composed piano for choirs, bands, jazz combos, singers. I've been in bands all my life, and have composed for jazz bands, choirs, and orchestras at BYU and in Eastern Europe. I also play about 10 different instruments. I won two Student Emmys in Hollywood for my compositions to BYU's animations in 2010 & 2014.

I am currently writing music for video games.

About Justice
Hi, I am Justice
I'm a director and music producer with approximately 20 years in the music industry.
As the son of a preacher, I began music by toying with the musical instruments in my home, which transpired me to play for my father's church at the age of 14.
After 8 years of music, I became a member of various musical groups in Ghana/West Africa, and later participated in European tours with famous artists and other European groups. Living in Germany for 15 years, I studied music theory, which tremendously enhanced and polished my musical expertise.
I have become a passionate and talented music teacher, with a very unique and effective style of teaching.
Today, I teach all ages with the mission to inspire and bring out the music in them.
My teaching philosophy is based on my belief that learning is fun!
Through practice and help
ful instruction, I will work with you to achieve your goals in a relaxed, and encouraging environment with positivity and praise.

Through formal and self- instructed lessons from age 12, I've learned country, folk, blues, rock, and metal techniques and formed several local bands as lead vocalist and lead/rhythm guitarist.
Writing and recording my own music has been a hobby for over 30 years.
Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.
An active music enthusiast from a young age, I learned clarinet technique and music theory from age 9 through public schools, performing in orchestra and marching band.

About Dan
I am not one of the lucky few who was born with inherent musical talent. I've had to work hard for my knowledge and ability and I believe that this gives me an edge over teachers who are naturally musical. I once struggled to learn even the basics of music. This enables me to personally identify & understand the struggles that a developing student faces. Many teachers born with musical talent fail to be good guides through the musical wilderness because sometimes they simply cannot relate to a student's struggle. I've been teaching for six years. For four of those years I taught guitar at Aleoop, a musical enrichment program at the Brookside & Hillside elementary schools in Allendale. I work best with younger students. I've found that because of my age young students find me more relatable than my older counterparts. My aim as a teacher i
s to empower my students with the gifts of self-expression and confidence. My focus is on artistic enrichment, enjoyment and technical proficiency.

I have since become well versed in Jazz, Downtempo, Soft Rock, Classical, and Funk. I teach my students how to write their own songs. By stressing technique I flush out any bad habits that can come from either lazy or improper teaching. I give them the tools necessary to become great players and writers regardless of genre.
