Katie,
Came to my home in Atlantic Highlands and was very supportive of my daughter.
She gave her materiel to practice and taught her how to read music. A lot was accomplished in a half hour. We look forward to her next lesson.

I develop an individual leaning
path for each of my students so they can achieve their music goals. I use many different piano teaching methods and am not bound by any particular one. Depending upon my students level and goals I will supplement the methods books with pieces that interest the student.

1. How to practice efficiently,
2. Improving technique.
3. Weekly songs and pieces to learn.
4. Long range major works which will take several months to master
5. Sight reading
7. Music theory,harmony, rhythm and melody, which can be applied to all styles of music, popular song, classical, jazz, etc
8. Understanding of music styles and composers

How much time we spend in each area will be determined by the students level and goals.

Charles is just great....there's no way I could have found a better teacher. Not only does he know everything there is to know about music, he's interested in keeping the lessons and learning interesting and fun. You can tell he really cares about trying to help his students to both progress, learn some theory, but to have fun and build skills they'll use/enjoy for a long time. Really impressive.

Charlie has been giving lessons to my son and is the absolute best! He is passionate about music and brings such energy to each lesson. My son is learning how to play jazz from Charlie after being classically trained. It has opened up a whole new world for him.

It great listening to the lessons because Charlie and my son enjoy music so much.

Charlie is the best piano teacher I have worked with. In just two months of taking lessons with him, I have learned myriads of info about music, theory, jazz, blues, and the classics. Being under his tutelage is truly an honor and he is patient with me even when I don't practice (Although I must say he's a real stickler for that). I would recommend anyone to him with a desire for music whether you are 5 or 55.

Rosemary C.

Matawan, NJ

About Rosemary

I have 30 yrs teaching experience PLUS the added expertise of being a performing pro singer! My students are signed recording artists AND people just starting out. I have taught in colleges and privately with an emphasis on pop/jazz/blues/rock/musical theater singing. I teach in such a way that students have told me they learn more in one lesson with me than in years of study somewhere else! You will not do needless voice exercises. We will use songs you like as teaching tools, giving you the opportunity to also expand your repertoire. My lessons are interesting and fun! Taking lessons from
someone who has been and is a real actively performing teacher makes all the difference in how well and how quickly you will get your act together! :-)

Zach M.

Marlboro, NJ

About Zach

As a teaching artist, my goal is to reinforce a healthy structure to your voice while expanding your capacities as an actor and performer by letting the complete singing actor emerge. I wish for my work in the studio to be accessible even when you are practicing on your own. I hope to empower each student to become self-sufficient on a personal level, understanding that each individual grows from different methods to find that perfect balance of artistic and technical instruction.

I recently spent the summer in Pittsburgh performing in four Pittsburgh CLO shows appearing as The Production
Tenor in Singin’ in the Rain and Garvin in Footloose. Before this, I spent my previous two summers performing at MT Wichita and Connecticut Repertory Theatre, all of which has taught me what it takes to become a successful musical theatre performer in this era.

I love teaching all students, but in particular high school students who are aspiring to attend college as a musical theatre major, non-theatre majors who are new to singing and want a stronger technical background, or actors who are new to the musical theatre scene and are looking to take their talent to the next level. I have a strong knowledge of repertoire ranging from contemporary musical theatre to golden age to opera/operetta. I have performed in musicals, operettas, plays, and have started my own collegiate a cappella group, The Statesmen. At Penn State, I was trained to not only teach musical theatre repertoire, but to include art songs and arias as well which have their own tool in a student's growth and versatility.

Most importantly, I like to have fun in the studio. I have a very open and goofy personality and want you to feel free to be goofy as well. Dare to fail. You may learn more from your voice cracking then you might from singing a beautiful note.

Lessons with Zach have been amazing, he teaches me new things every time I go to a singing lesson. He is very patient and will work as hard as he can to give you the best experience, and even when you have a hard time doing something in the lesson, Zach will push you and help to you accomplish whatever it is you are doing. Overall I recommend Zach to anyone who is willing to sing and have fun with it.

Before taking lessons with Zach, it had been a few years since I had any proper vocal training. Zach was extremely patient, professional and helpful with our lessons, as well as making the environment a lot of fun! I would recommend Zach to any clients that might be interested.

"I took my kids to Miss Sherri because I kept hearing
how wonderful it was. I believe in early exposure to
music because they get so much out of it when they're
really little. And Sherri has a magical quality that
sparks their interest. Jack, 9, Andrew, 7 and my
daughter, Bailey, 6, are now clients of Shirley Grant,
a talent manager for Keisha Knight Pullian, who played
Rudy on 'The Cosby Show,' and Kathleen Herles, the
voice of 'Dora the Explorer.' Jack recently played the
lead in Running Rabbit Theater's production of 'The
Velveteen Rabbit' at the Two River Theater. We love
Miss Sherri!"
