About Geoff

I played on a toy piano when I was very young, learning a bit of sight reading from my Mother, while listening to classical, jazz, and rock music. When I was 12, I learned guitar and later took private piano lessons from a prominent Philadelphia instructor. After playing in a rock band in high sc

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

Private Ear Training Teacher

Beginning ear training begins with pitch recognition. From there, we work through recognizing patterns, chord qualities, and sight-singing. More advanced students can expect to work on melodic and harmonic dictations.

Each session is tailored to the student's specific needs. We will move at his/her pace.

Online Ear Training Teacher

Touring guitarist, experienced composer for film/media, and professional music instructor for the past 8 years! I graduated Magna Cum Laude from McNally Smith College of Music with two bachelor's degrees; Guitar Performance and Instrumental Composition. I have taught students of literally all ages (4-76) and most specialize in guitar, music theory, and composition. I also teach beginner to intermediate piano lessons! My greatest strong suit as a teacher is my incredible flexibility in adapting to the student's learning style. Originally a self-taught guitarist, I know the struggles of learning or continuing to better oneself on an instrument. I guarantee you that I will work hard and patiently with you to help you reach your musical goals!

Ethan is easy going and knows how to relate to my son who is reserved. He inspires my son to do more and dive deeper and gives constructive criticism in a way that inspires the student. My son would not have been prepared to apply to college music programs if it had not been for Ethan's knowledge of all things music, and his ability to teach and share it with my son. Because Ethan is actually out in the world making a living in the music industry and comes from a classic music school background he has so much to offer an aspiring musician and composer. And, he is on time and dependable.
Kevin
This instructor is skilled at individualizing lesson plans for students of various skill levels and patient with students. I started out learning guitar with no previous experience, and I learned much within the first few lessons. I highly recommend Ethan as your music instructor!
Diane
Ethan is the best instructor I have had in helping me increase my skill in playing the bass guitar. He doesn't use a cookie cutter approach to instructing, but pays attention to where you are at and is very good at identifying what skills and knowledge are needed to help you move forward. Ethan is extremely talented as a musician and composer. His knowledge and understanding of music theory is impressive. I've really appreciated the opportunity to learn from him.

I've been with Fanjin for almost 2 months now and she is fantastic! I came in with no knowledge of singing what so ever and she has helped me build up my knowledge of singing while also furthering developing my voice. Fannin knows what problems you have with your voice and how to solve them in order to have you grow and become an even stronger singer.

Fanjin is a super constructional and patient teacher while I take lesson online with her as a beginner to singing. She offers effective techniques, advices, and singing drills for me to improve significantly in a relatively short amount of time. She is also very flexible, and overall I enjoyed so much working with her!

"Omer has been an excellent teacher! I’ve over heard several lessons with him and my son and I’m always impressed by the breath of knowledge he has. In just a few weeks my son has been inspired to play the piano for hours at a time. Originally Omer was going to teach my son violin but they switched to piano so that they could explore their common interest in composing music for film. I am immensely pleased with him and recommend him wholeheartedly!"

"I needed help singing in the church choir. Rebekah was amazing and personally took the time to teach me and work with me to help me to be able to sing in the choir on Christmas Eve. She was very patient and never criticized, but gently taught me to sing various styles of notes. I'm not a musical person, so I can't really get the terminology right, but she helped me to be able to located the different notes in the hymnal as I was singing. On Christmas Eve, with Rebekah's lessons, I accomplished what we had set out to do and was able to sing in the Christmas Eve service.

I've also known Rebekah personally for a long time now. She is full of personality and is exciting to be around. She is very professional and kind to all of her students. She is patient, considerate, and her students thrive under her supervision. I would highly recommend anyone to chose Rebekah as their personal instructor and not only for themselves, but for their children as well."

He provides insight to the difficult questions that I come across over the years of playing guitar. He especially helped me understand music in a much larger scale. Overall, he is a well rounded teacher that is patient and supportive with his students."

"If you are aurally challenged when it comes to intervals and harmonic progressions, I definitely recommend tutoring. Michelle was very patient during our lessons and had different tips on how to identify certain progressions, which I appreciated. We also worked on complex rhythms together. It was actually really fun. She's very kind, resourceful, and an excellent tutor."
