Instructions are based on custom curriculum for every student. The curriculum is based on student's desires and abilities and compiled from multiple sources.

About Peter
I am energetic, experienced and creative music teacher with a proven ability to get the very best out of pupils, an expert at identifying the appropriate resources required for a subject matter and ensuring that they are used efficiently and effectively Most of my students read and play simple music after 2-3 classes of active instruction.

I posses an extensive classical music and music pedagogy training. All my musical knowledge and expertise was attained in Eastern Europe. I play and teach piano, upright bass, bass guitar and a range of other instruments. Over the years I taught basic piano, the beginner violin, viola, cello and a variety of school instruments such as recorder and xylophone. I also teach advanced music theory, harmony and basics of composition and orchestral arranging required for music colleges. I especially
find it rewarding working with beginners and the opportunity to show them the amazing world of listening, playing and making music.

The teaching begins with identifying student's musical needs, goals and tastes. Students are taught a stimulating, thorough, and graduated course of recital solos, theory, technical studies, and classic repertoire. For those wishing to pursue more of a classical approach to music, there are proven methods to accomplish that goal established by European master teachers and pedagogues. Also, I can teach the know-how of Jazz and Blues though gradual lessons that cover basic theory, scales and chords up to melody and harmony development.

*** Lesson Details ***
The learning process should be, for the most part, fun and based upon a strong relationship between the teacher and the student. Curriculum and lesson plans are based on student's abilities and aspirations with appropriate balance between theoretical and practical work. The lesson material is always carefully chosen, and when necessary, adapted to specific learning needs.

With a proper approach, everyone can learn to play music. Whether you want to pursue a music career, or just play for fun and enjoyment I can help you attain your goals. From basic piano and stringed instruments, to advanced theory, harmony, composition and improvisation to jazz, pop and rock.

Classes are not based on a single source or book. I provide other exercises in printed form for students to keep and take home.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two high end digital keyboards, two violins, viola, cello, upright bass, bass guitar and amplifier, music stands, stereo equipment with a large CD collection of just any conceivable music style.. Assorted school instruments: recorder (soprano and tenor), xylophone. Various music charts and a large library of music resources and other books; Extensive e-library and ability to print any required material on the spot. Instant access to many on-line sheet music resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Full size and a school grade digital keyboards , bass guitar, amplifier, staff paper and other printed resources, violin, viola, spare parts, maintenance tools and equipment.

*** Specialties ***
Pop, Classical, Jazz, Ethnic and Modal music, Composition, Arranging, Harmony, Counterpoint, Advanced Music Theory

Peter got right down to business and it is clear he knows what he is doing. My son is 5 and Peter kept his attention for the full 30 minutes, which is really saying something. At the end of the first lesson, my son was introduced to and could repeat note names; could play a five-note scale; and was learning his right hand from his left. I myself went to Juilliard and Yale for music and am so pleased Peter will be teaching our child(ren).

About Sepehrdad
As an experienced Violin teacher I help students to teach themselves the violin, to understood that their playing only improves when they change habits. A bored or disinterested child simply won’t progress, and a great violin teacher knows how to communicate with creativity and clarity. I have proper knowledge of the violin’s mechanics, general musical and repertoire knowledge, skilled as a player, and strength as a communicator. I have a bachelor degree in string performance, and I’ve taught students from beginner to advance for more than 10 years, guided students participating in inter-school musical shows, competitions and different musical presentations – Fests and orchestras. I teach both Suzuki and traditional method depending on the level of student.

In my one hour of comprehensive teaching, students learn extensively the techniques of the violin, including tone production, vibrato, musicality and pieces of music which are chosen from standard violin literature or Suzuki books. The whole idea is to get students to look at the whole learning process as a fun activity, and very soon they acquire the ability to produce beautiful sounds, correct intonation and strong vibrato. In addition to the above, I conduct some some ear-training exercises to improve intonation as well.

About Nader
I am a violinist and composer. I have trained more than 400 students in more than twenty five years of teaching.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson includes scales, arpeggios, etudes and a new piece of music. I emphasize on correct intonation, accurate rhythm and strong vibrato for better expression and thorough musicality.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio at my home is a spacey room that is properly ventilated and well lit, possessing enough chairs available for both my students and possible guests. There are two music stands and an electric Suzuki piano, which can be used for accompaniment in our lessons, especially in preparation for upcoming concerts.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a 2012 Toyota Corolla car, with a trunk that has ample space to house and carry my instruments and music stands as they are needed.

*** S

Patience and communicating in an effective way and encouraging students to practice without regarding such a task as a chore.

Mr. Nader is a wonderful teacher who truly cares about his students. He is kind, patient, and funny. When I first started taking lessons from Mr. Nader, I didn't know how to read the notes, let alone play the violin. But through his patience and encouragement I have drastically improved and have come to really enjoy playing the violin. Mr. Nader is very well educated and knowledgeable about a variety of different kinds of music and the history of music. I am very fortunate to have found such a wonderful instructor.

Every lesson will be taught according to the student's needs. There will be the basic structure of improving upon technique and musicality but discovering a love of playing the violin will come first!

About Andrea
I am a recent graduate from SUNY Fredonia with a dual degree in Music Education and Violin Performance. I have taught about 10 students between ages 9-12 in my home studio. I have also worked at the Amadeus String shop individually teaching around a dozen beginner students in 2014.
Teaching music is something I absolutely love to do! I believe that creating and discovering music is a gift that everyone should be able to experience and it is never too late to start! Enjoying yourself is my number one goal, then making you the best musician you can be comes afterwards.
At Fredonia I have learned to become viola, cello, bass, and piano proficient so I could teach any student those instruments on a beginner-intermediate level.
I am also an avid performer and fiddler. I have played in my school's symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, and
many chamber ensembles. I have also performed with the Northern-Dutchess Symphony Orchestra, the Orchard Park Symphony, the Warren Philharmonic, the Southern Tier Symphony, and the Woodstock Chamber Orchestra. These are only a few groups I have played with!
