I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

There are several aspects to performance that I can help a guitarist with. The chief one is solo performance and improvisation which I have taught many students even kids in school bands who need to improvise in the jazz band and don't know how. Another aspect is how to use a guitar amp properly at higher show/concert volumes as far as tone settings and use of effects. Makes a huge difference when you know the insider "secrets". So you can even bring your amp for an "amp lesson".

*** 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 tra

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.

There are many routes and discoveries toward becoming a singer and here are a few of the steps.

1) Memorize musical selections and routines, or sing following printed text, musical notation, or instructions.

2) Interpret or modify music, applying knowledge of harmony, melody, rhythm, and voice production to individualize presentations and maintain audience interest.

3) Observe choral leaders or prompters for cues or directions in vocal presentation.

4) Perform before live audiences, or in television, radio, or movie productions.

5) Practice singing exercises and study with vocal coaches, in order to develop their voices and skills and to rehearse for upcoming roles.

6) Seek out and learn new music that is suitable for live performance and/or recording.

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Michelle
Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

"Rachel is such a fun and knowledgeable teacher! Not only is she great at teaching trombone technique, but she is also extremely musical and well versed in the theory and history of many styles and eras of music. She's a very chill and laid-back teacher, but still makes sure that you as a student set goals for yourself and reach them. Definitely sign up for lessons with Rachel!"

"I played in the Advent Band with Vandi as our worship leader for several years. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious and she always provided positive, constructive criticism. Vandi's knowledge of music theory was demonstrated in her ability to arrange our songs to suit the various skill levels of the band members and the congregation! This is not an easy task and she handled it with ease and grace. I would highly recommend her as an instructor."

"Eric B. was the music instructor for both my children at the middle and high school they attended. Additionally, I taught with Eric for seven years.

My children received excellent music instruction in both trombone and flute. I was pleased with the rigor of the practice that was expected from Eric, which enabled dramatic growth in their musical ability. I was also pleased that they were both able to read music due to the instruction they were given under Eric's tutelage.

As I said earlier, I have worked with Eric as a colleague. I found him to be highly organized, student centered with regard to growth and performance, and a man of high character.

Eric created a Jazz band curriculum at the school corporation we taught at, where he developed several Jazz sections that would perform regularly in the community. Eric would invite notable guest musicians to work with the students and participate with them in these performances.

I would recommend Eric, without reservations, to anyone who desires a quality music instructor."

"To Whom It May Concern:

It has been a pleasure to have Ms. Leeora K. teach my son how to play piano for two years. My son developed a positive relationship with Ms. K. He excelled in piano under her direction. Ms. K. is a responsible, kind, thoughtful, and professional piano instructor that we were blessed to have worked with. I appreciate that Ms. K. is passionate and caring about teaching my son and others how to play the piano.

I believe that Ms. K. would make an excellent candidate for any work position that she seeks because she is a friendly, helpful, and reliable person. I highly recommend Ms. K! Please feel free to contact me if you should need further information.


Thank you,

Maureen Flaherty"

"Melanie A. is an extraordinary teacher!

Of the many music teachers out there, I would have to say that Melanie is one with a unique ability to get students from any background to really understand what it is they need to and learn. To begin, Melanie's upbeat and bright, but professional personality is one that easily clicks with all types of students, making it easy to learn. She is so patient and kind, but just strict enough to get us to do what we need to do. I have seen her sing several times and her great vocal talents and stage performances allow her to give honest, professional, and needed pointers that help students improve (but never in a harsh way). I personally observed this from our band sessions where she is able to teach and give performance advice to a group of students that has greatly improved our ability to be able to be on stage. As a guitar player, she has given me pointers that slightly pushes me out of my comfort zone, but as bettered my stage performance.Just as she capable of teaching groups, she is an excellent one-on-one teacher. It is never hard to ask her for extra help or assistance as her genuine love for singing and music is what fuels to want others to have the same love for it as well. She is always encouraging and constantly reminds you of your abilities to make sure you are never feeling discouraged. Having her as a mentor will never fail to improve your skills in music (whether it be singing or performing on stage) and build your confidence."
