About Cori
I have been a professional musician and educator in the Florida & Alabama panhandle for over 25 years. I cover a broad scope of ages (schoolage thru adult) and particular educational needs (hobby, scholarship, learning disabilities, etc ). I teach in classroom (group), private and online settings.

I have a unique teaching style to blends both Traditional note-reading and ear training methods with both Classical and Contemporary repertoire.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their violin technique and expand their repertoire every 2 weeks. I help each student unlock and release their own particular musical style and increase their abilities with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach violin students of all different ages and experience levels and enable them to sight read music and pursue both classical and/
or contemporary excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional musician I have played many public venues over the past three decades including weddings, bands, for/with recording artists and Worship leaders such as Rita Springer and Lindell Cooley. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic worship leaders. My personal passion is contemporary music, and firmly believe that great classical technique is essential to any and every style.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

***Background checked*** both through Alabama Assemblies of God and via FLORIDA coalition of Private Schools

My two daughters began their violin instruction with Cori 11 years ago. Cori's creative and personalized approach gave them a great foundation in fundamentals of violin technique while keeping them inspired, motivated, and engaged. Cori is very organized and has developed a progressive teaching approach that really works for children. We loved that Cori taught both classical and fiddle styles. To this day, they continue to pursue both. After 3 years with Cori we moved away, but my girls continued to play both solo, duets, chamber music and full orchestra. My younger daughter was youth orchestra and high school concertmaster. Both girls won multiple college scholarships for their violin/viola playing. I attribute their continued success in music in large part to the foundation they got from Cori.

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).

I give a rounded curriculum that is based on the students interests. If you like pop, we'll play pop melodies. If you like classical, we'll play classical. While learning these songs and melodies I incorporate techniques and theory that will help the student become a more advanced player, reader, and performer.

About Ian
Hi, I'm Ian, a 23 year old music major who just completed his B.A. At Hunter College. I try and play as many instruments as possible to expand my musical repertoire, but I am the most well versed in violin and guitar. I've been playing violin for 14 years and guitar for 9. I am involved in a number of musical projects and bands including my own, Cicero & the Orations. I also have a good knowledge of theory and have taken all but two of Hunters offered theory classes. I am currently a lessons instructor at a corporate site but I am always looking to teach music, since it's what I want to do with my life. I am quite patient with students and am always looking to take as much time as is needed for the student to learn whatever will better them.

Ian's patience and knowledge of many types of music is awesome! He takes a very empathetic approach to teaching; he tailors what knowledge he shares and what instructional techniques he employs based on my learning style and past experiences. If your looking for a kind, down to earth teacher who's not elitist when it comes to teaching anything from classical violin to rock guitar, Ian's the guy.

From the basic bow hold to false harmonics, we can cover it all on the violin. I focus on the goals of the musician, and let my students guide their own learning.

About Mark
I am a professional violist working in the central Illinois region. I've been playing the viola for 21 years, and also am comfortable on the violin as well. I received my Bachelors of Arts from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2004, double majoring in Music Performance (viola) and in Philosophy. Afterwards, I completed my Masters of Music in 2010 at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois.

I frequently play with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia da Camera, Peoria Symphony Orchestra, Milliken-Decatur Symphony Orchestra, Danville Symphony Orchestra, and others.

In addition to music, my passions carry over to argumentation, literature, long distance running, and writing. I have a fierce eye for grammar and composition, and love to work with students to better their writing and understanding.

Fox River Grove, IL

It is important for me to teach the building blocks of music: scales, circle of fifths, and working with technique to make learning pieces easier. We will teach you about the parts of your instrument inside and out and even stretching methods to help keep you limber to prevent any injury. I teach not only classical music, but also jazz, rock, and contemporary. Keeping my students engaged and passionate about what they are learning is key.

About Sage
As a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Berklee College of Music, I attended the most prestigious contemporary music school in the world. I was exposed to so many amazing styles of music and rubbed shoulders with the most incredible musicians you can imagine (and performed alongside them)! I have taken my experiences and knowledge from Berklee and infused it into my teaching style. I do use Suzuki method because I believe it is an excellent foundation to work upon, but I also think that jazz and contemporary studies are a great way to expand one's horizon and learn about music in an entirely new and fun way!

Laramie, WY

I believe in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere between teacher and student that promotes the optimal mindset for the student to progress, and to believe in themself.

Technique-wise, there will be lots of work on intonation, tone production, and accuracy of rhythms!

Musically, I like to ask the student for their own ideas, and offer my input afterwards. Music is an expressive art, and the teacher's job is to help the student best express themselves.

About Josiah
I am currently a graduate student (Master of Music in Violin Performance) at the University of Oklahoma, where I am on fellowship as a violinist in the resident graduate string quartet, the Crouse Quartet. I study with Professor Hal Grossman at OU.

Previously, I earned a Performer's Certificate at the University of Wyoming, where I served as concertmaster of the UW Symphony Orchestra and the UW Chamber Orchestra.

I have advanced to the national finals in the MTNA Young Artist solo competition twice, and been guest soloist with the Northwest College Symphony Orchestra. During my time in Wyoming, I performed in the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra and the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra as a fully contracted section violin, and in the Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra as an alternate violin.

For four years, I taught for the University of Wyom
ing String Project, where I served as a private violin and viola teacher to elementary, middle, and high school students in the Laramie, Wyoming school system. My students have won leadership positions in their school and string project orchestras, as well as the distinction of All-State Orchestra.

Mrs Bobbie is amazing, she is so patient with my son and yet challenges him.
She doesn't teach a structured a b c approach that is the same for every student.
She starts with the basics and based on the student, she goes at their pace.
She also has a heart for sharing music with children.
If the public school system was able to individualize teaching like she does. Wow
