Playing the piano is so much fun. My piano students learn how to read music, play with proper technique, and express themselves musically. More importantly, they learn to believe in themselves and their own strengths. We'll begin our learning journey together by discussing your specific goals. Each and every student's lessons are customized to his preferences.

About Heather M.
More important than my conservatory education and my experience as an educator and a performer is my passion for teaching music and acting and my undying belief that anyone can learn to be a musician and an actor. I'm currently available to teach lessons in my own St. Augustine home studio and online around the globe.

I'm a cum laude graduate of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and a winner of its merit scholarship.
After performing with the New York and Royal Philharmonics, the New Jersey and Virginia Symphonies, the American Boy Choir and the internationally renowned opera star, Andrea Bocelli, studying opera and piano at Westminster Choir College and performance art and improvisational acting at East Carolina University in North Carolina, and appearing in shows and pageants across the east coast, I found my life'
s work in 2003 when I began teaching music.

I've successfully taught hundreds of different students since 2003, from 5-year-olds with special needs to middle-aged professional opera singers, from a professor in Saudi Arabia to a 65-year-old doctor of music, from kids of Radio Disney to students of the famed Actors Studio in New York, from busy stay-at-home parents to retirees with bucket lists, from CEOs to touring singer-songwriters.

I've created and led a workshop about singing called, "The Whole Body Singer". I've written dozens of articles about music and music education for the blog at TakeLessons.com.

My extensive knowledge of the voice has encouraged and empowered hundreds of singers and prepared many of them to win competitions, pageants and auditions, as well as roles in operas and musicals.

Having both taught myself piano and received formal training at a conservatory has prepared me to teach almost anyone how to play.
The intensive training and education that I received at Westminster Choir College in songwriting, music theory and sight reading has benefited my students at every level.

My current work as singer and keyboardist in the acoustic rock duo, Timberwood, has strengthened my knowledge of a broad range of styles and genres. I have a strong commitment to continuing my education. That's why I recently (2014) studied songwriting online with the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

In the lessons that I teach, I'm flexible, positive and encouraging. While I want my students to have fun and love music, not dread it, I expect hard work and persistence. I am caring, patient, nurturing, and compassionate. In piano lessons, I usually allow the student to choose a piece with which to warm up and then move on to technique and repertoire. In voice lessons, I usually warm up the singer and discuss technique and sight singing before focusing on song choices. Joan Frey Boytim wrote a book for voice that I like to use, and I like the Estelle Liebling exercises for the more advanced singer. Hanon exercises are a big part of my piano curriculum, and I enjoy the Bastien and Alfred books for young and old. I have used completely random songs pulled out of a piano bench and a karaoke CD for kids. I will use almost anything I can get my hands on if it means effectively teaching music.
Acting lessons consist of exercises and games that apply learned concepts, and monologue and audition coaching. Parents, siblings and spouses are always welcome to observe lessons quietly.

I love teaching students how to play the piano. I enjoy helping them achieve their specific goals. I am all about increasing my students' musicality to the fullest potential. I can help them learn the skill of sight-reading (Imagine knowing how to immediately play a piece of music that you have never seen before!) I can also teach them how to play by ear/improvise
(Wouldn't it be nice to be able to successfully play a song from your brain on your first try?) I'd love to teach you how to play.

About Kevin
Hello! My name is Kevin, and I am looking forward to teaching you everything I know about music! I've been singing at Walt Disney World for over 23 years (and I still am currently) with the Voices of Liberty, the Dapper Dans of Main Street, and Four For A Dollar. I have a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Penn State University. Even more than singing, playing the guitar, arranging for a cappella, and playing piano, I love to teach! Ever since I was a sophomore in high school, I've wanted to be a teacher of music in various capacities. My favorite aspect of teaching several private students each week is that every individual student has a different story: What is it that you want to accomplish? Would you like to sing, play piano, or play guitar? Would you like training in music theory? Do you want to eventually have a career in m
usic? Will this be a hobby for you? Whatever your goals are, I am excited to know your story.

Orlando, FL

I love to facilitate a fun learning environment. We start with the basics of music theory and learning to read the staff. I use the iPad, flashcards and listening to vary the lessons, especially for the younger ones. I encourage my students to learn modern/ popular songs as well as the standard classical literature.

About Kristen
I have been teaching voice and piano in the Dr. Phillips/Windermere area for over five years. My studio is a fun learning environment and I take great pride in finding out what each students' goals are. I have a studio near Disney, off 535. I do travel to students' homes on occasion, if my schedule allows. Lastly, there is always a very fun end-of-the-year recital.

Please note for singing, I teach a classical technique that lends itself to Classical and Musical Theatre types of singing.

My experience in music starts from an early age playing piano and singing in choirs. I attended Dr. Phillips High School, was apart of the Visual and Performing Arts Magnet and graduated with the Voice Department's Most Outstanding Graduate Award. I eventually earned a B.M. in Voice Performance from Palm Beach Atlantic University and I have recently
received my Masters from UCF in Music.

Here is my professional bio:

Kristen, mezzo-soprano, has appeared as a soloist with the Palm Beach Symphony, Palm Beach Atlantic University Concert Choir, Palm Beach Atlantic University Oratorio Chorus and in the Palm Beach Atlantic International Piano Festival. Kristen has been a featured staff soloist in recital, concert and worship with the First Presbyterian Church of North Palm Beach. She has also been seen on the opera stage as part of the chorus with Florida Opera Theatre and Palm Beach Atlantic’s Opera Workshop performing scenes as Rosina in Il barbieri di Siviglia and Cheubino in Le Nozze di Figaro.

Kristen as a chorister, has sung with Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus and Chamber Choir, Atlanta’s up and coming Chamber Choir, Coro Vocati and Miami’s Seraphic Fire in their Professional Choral Institute Program. She has recorded with Stetson University’s Concert Choir: Duruflé Requiem and Seraphic Fire’s Professional Choral Institute, Brahms’ Ein Deutches Reqiuem, Op. 45, which was honored with a GRAMMY nomination.

A native of Florida, Kristen received her B.M. in Voice Performance from Palm Beach Atlantic University. She graduated cum laude, as a member of Who’s Who Among Universities and Colleges and received the University's Music Department’s Outstanding Graduate Award. Recently, Kristen received her M.A. in Music at the University of Central Florida.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns, I would be more than happy to answer them!

Waldorf, MD

My students enjoy learning to read sheet music, play piano by ear, and to compose original music. $15/student for 2-/3-child lessons. $30 for single student lessons. 3-child lessons last 45 minutes. All others last 30 minutes.

I offer individual and discounted group piano lessons (to help parents afford lessons for 2 or three student lessons.) In my lessons students learn to play by ear, read music, compose original music, and even to improvise. I try to keep things fun, and children's lessons involve a lot of moving and interactive computer/tablet activities as well. These resources and activities are available for adult or teen lessons as well, but not required.

About Kepa
Hi! I'm Kepa Freeman and I'm a musician/educator/composer/tutor/songwriter based in Waldorf, MD who's offering a few different services on this site, but one thing is consistent: I work my hardest to give fun/engaging lessons that guide my students to success.

In terms of credentials I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching in Special Education (Trinity Washington University) and a Bachelor's of Science in Music (Temple University). I'm also a licensed Special Education Teacher for grades K-12 in Washington, DC. On the musical side, my musical credentials can be heard here: www.broadjam.com/kepafreeman.

A little about my experience as a teacher. I've spent the last 5 years working as an elementary Special Education Teacher. Before that I was a Music Production Teacher. Before that, I was a teacher's aide for a Special Education
High School. a Substitute Teacher, and a Tutor. Overcoming challenges to show my students success is what I do!

I hope to work with you soon!

I have a passion for music. I will always share that passion with my students and will build upon the passion they already have within them. We can do it for fun or we can do it for strict educational purposes. I've never had a student who didn't love lessons with me and I think it is because I respect what the student wants to achieve from the lessons and I help them to achieve that goal.
