About Peter
*** Specialties ***

I teach all styles and all ages but my specialty is in electric rock music and applied music theory as in guitar soloing and improvisation as well as song crafting. I can teach a student any song requested by looking it up on you tube if you don't have it and immediately transcribe it for you! I also have an extensive library of songs already charted and copied to hand out.

Also, since all teachers are not equal, what separates me from others who give lessons is that I have done extensive training in Teaching and Study Skills. My lessons are very understandable and properly arranged to learn in an organized fashion. So my students progress very well, really learn music and enjoy the lessons

Pete is the best instructor that I have ever had. He is the only person I ever had that was able to explain things in a way that I could understand. I have taken lessons from other people and was not able to learn anything.

Pete is an excellent and gifted teacher. He is kind,compassionate, hilarious, and deeply aware of what it takes to transmit guitar knowledge. I greatly enjoyed my lessons with him and give my highest recommendation of him to those seeking lessons. Too bad I moved out-of-state!, or I'd still be with him.

I had the pleasure of watching Nikiya perform most of her masterpieces! Ranging from classical pieces such as Chopin and also her delicate and beautiful pieces that she had written and composed herself. Never before have I seen such a talent. If you have her as a professor consider yourself very fortunate. She truly cares for each student individually.

About William
Hello everyone. My journey into teaching has opened up so many doors for me and has made me a better instructor. I have been participating in music programs from the age of 3. Music is my passion. I have learned many instruments along the way, and I have pressed through to achieve not only my academic aspirations, but my personal goals as well. I tailor my lessons to my students, pin pointing what we need to work on, and reinforcing what is already going well. I can come to you in person, or via internet. My goal is to help you reach your goals musically, and to encourage you in your journey to becoming a musician.

About Andrea
Hello, my name is Andrea. I am a student at Yale Law School and I have been playing violin for close to 20 years. Both my parents were music teachers and my dad is a professor at Westminster Choir College, so I grew up listening to the great classical composers like Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, and Debussy. I have experience playing violin in ensembles including New Jersey All State Orchestra and Interlochen World Youth Symphony Orchestra. I taught violin prior to law school and have continued to teach here in New Haven. Teaching is rewarding for me because I enjoy helping students grow as musicians and because I consider sharing music with others to be very valuable. I look forward to sharing music with you!

Not only is Andrea an exceptional violinist, but she's also a wonderful teacher. I had never taken any violin lessons before going to her, and after several classes, I felt comfortable tuning the instrument reading sheet music, playing scales, and playing some songs. Andrea is friendly and encouraging with a keen attention to detail. Her positive energy made me look forward to our weekly lessons.

About Christopher
I am a professional cellist currently residing in the Hartford area. I studied cello performance at The Boston Conservatory, The Hartt School of Music, and The University of New Hampshire. My private teachers include Ronald Feldman, Rhonda Rider, Terry King, Larry Veal, Neal Cary, and Jennifer Combs. I've played in masterclasses for Yo-Yo Ma, Joseph Silverstein, and The Shanghai String Quartet.

I've performed extensively throughout the state of Connecticut in chamber groups, musical and opera pit orchestras, symphony orchestras, weddings, and other private events. I also do a lot of recording projects. I composed and recorded music for three independent films, as well as hundreds of my own personal compositions and arrangements.

I've been teaching nonstop for the past ten years. Most of my students are cellists, though I also teach gu
itar and bass. I have a very good student-teacher rapport with my students, and consequently a high retention rate. I always travel to my students' homes which my students' parents greatly appreciate.

Along with the cello, guitar, and bass I also teach music technology courses such as how to use Finale to compose music, and Ableton and Pro Tools to record and produce music. I'm well-versed in music theory and composition as well. I have a broad array of subjects I can teach, and I'm looking forward to passing my knowledge onto you!
