Phillip teaches any level from ages 4-100. Anyone can learn at any age.
These lesson will, in a methodical way, teach you the skills you need to play piano. The only thing keeping you from reaching your potential is starting lessons. Lessons are geared to your speed of learning and needs.

About Phillip
I am a pianist and singer who started learning to play the piano at age 6, and I love teaching all students of all experience levels. Growing up I competed and placed highly in many competitions including playing with the Symphony Orchestra in my home town of Spartanburg, SC after winning it's concerto competition at the age of 17. In college I took piano from Dr. Charles Fugo at the University of South Carolina and also started taking voice lessons from Tonya Currier and Walter Cuttino. While still in college I worked with The South Carolina Opera company for a season as a member of the ensemble and as Chorus Master.
Professionally, I have worked with different theater and opera companies as a lead actor and as a musician. I have also worked in many different church positions as a musician and singer.
I have many years of teaching ex
perience with piano at all experience levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have experience teaching since 1995 while I was still in college. I primarily use Alfred and "Faber & Faber" piano methods for beginners. I teach how to read music, understand the theory behind the music, and the technique needed in a patient atmosphere at the pace of the student. I also teach you how the piano works and the different types of pianos as well as the history of keyboards used for different classical music. The lessons are geared toward the goals of the student no matter what level is desired.
In teaching singing, I will teach you the basics necessary to create a healthy and relaxed sound through technique. With experience singing music ranging from classical to contemporary church music to musical theater, I can teach you how to use the voice in a way that will promote a long time of singing without adding stress to the voice. I will work with any style of music and will give you the technique and confidence needed to become a better singer.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my home studio is a piano and books with big windows to look out. Pianos are an upright piano and an Alesis Synthesiser. Seating is available for parents as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a piano or an electric keyboard at home for piano lessons. For voice lessons a keyboard is not required but is helpful.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily teach piano in a classical style using either "Faber & Faber" or Alfred Methods for piano lessons.
For voice, I teach all my students to sing in a way that will be the most beneficial to the health of their voice. Doing this is helpful to all styles of singing.

My teaching style is very personable and friendly yet serious about results. Curriculum can be tailored to the student.For piano students I am currently using the Alfred's basic piano library series. Students can expect to progress to the next level within a 3 to 6 month period depending on student’s dedication. Reading, theory, and technique will all improve and grow at the same rate. My philosophy is that instruction should take a learners knowledge of music beyond the instrument.

About Jim
I have been teaching for the past 15 years as a private instructor. My students range in age from 5 years old to 64. I teach beginner and intermediate piano and beginner, intermediate, and advanced electric bass.
I've been playing professionally for the past 30 years as an electric bassist, pianist, and vocalist. Learn to play like your favorite artists while having fun and growing as a musician. For bass students, you can learn all styles that are desirable, such as funk techniques like slapping, R&B grooving, rock & roll driving, and jazz swinging. For piano students, you can expect to learn enough music theory to reach greater heights and move forward while developing a love for the piano and the world of music. I offer a teaching environment that is highly interactive and encourages students to play, and understand the dynamics of p
laying with other musicians. You will learn to read music but I promise you will not be bored.

Theory. Technique. Reading. Proper style. You'll learn it all here!

I've been helping people enjoy music for 26 years.

Having proper technical skills that become second nature and learning to read music will give you confidence.

I tailor lessons to each student's needs, talents and learning styles. And I will try to ensure that you play with ease and in a healthy manner with joy! I don't expect you to become a star (unless you want to) - just have a good time and play the music you want to.

About Laura
Of course you want an experienced, passionate, patient and compassionate teacher! Teaching is not my job; it is my calling and I am very good at it.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education (1987, Ball State University) and a Master of Music degree in Voice (1994, University of South Florida). I've taught in public schools in Sarasota. Currently I am adjunct staff for State College of Florida (formerly Manatee Community College) teaching private voice and piano lessons and music appreciation classes.

My music studio has been serving music students in the Sarasota area since 1991.

All are welcome! Lessons are for students of all abilities. Some students come with just the desire to sing or play better for their own pleasure, others come with prior training, some are preparing for an audition and some even wish to ma
ke a career in music. Some people have come seeking help with their speaking voice for public speaking. My goal is to help my students meet and exceed their goals and have more life through the joy of music, to help them gain greater appreciation of music and increase their confidence both in music and in life!

*** Lesson Details ***
When a student and I first meet I ask the student what her/his hopes, goals, tastes and prior experience are. Then we talk about plans for achieving those hopes and goals.

Most of my students are studying music just because they love music and want to improve for their own benefit. Because of that, while I want students to progress, I am very patient. I understand that some weeks it's harder to find time for practice. I provide instruction and tools for growth, and show how to practice, then the students go home, use them and discover what works best for them.

Vocal lessons are tailored to each individual. Exercises include posture, breathing, diction, projection of the voice, unification of the voice, improvement of tone, range and flexibility. Healthy, beautiful singing is the goal. The confidence that goes along with that is amazing!

CDs with exercises and accompaniments are provided. And students can make CDs of their own performances!

Piano instruction is also tailored to the needs of each individual student. With young beginners I often use the "Faber" method. It has books for music theory, technique, lessons and performance. And students enjoy playing along with the Cd that goes with their pieces.

For older beginners, including adults, I often use the "Bastien, Older Beginner" or "Alfred, Adult Beginner". Both quickly teach melody and chord reading so that students can play more interesting pieces within a month. The lesson materials are supplemented by simple classical pieces or other music the student is interested in.

When a student comes in with prior training I continue with what she/he has been working on and adjust it as necessary. Literature for more advanced students is chosen with their abilities, technical and expressive needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio area is closed off from the rest of the house. There is a small seating area for parents which is separated by a screen from the lesson area. I have a Yamaha CVP-103 digital keyboard with weighted and touch sensitive keys, plus lots of different instrument sounds and beats to make playing and singing more fun. I can also adjust the pitch of songs so that they fit the student's voice. The keyboard is plugged into a Super Scope Cd recorder; a microphone is plugged in as well. This allows me to make recordings of accompaniments and practice exercises, as well as recording students' performances. (See below for photos.)

*** Specialties ***
I have been teaching professionally since 1987; I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music. I discover the goals a student has and give them the tools to reach those goals. My teaching style is structured yet highly personalized for the individual. I teach music ranging from Classical to Popular always using the best techniques.

I've studied classical, jazz and rock piano with the finest teachers in the world, and bring that perspective and experience to each lesson. Learning music should be FUN, which is emphasized particularly with younger students. What do YOU want to be able to do on the piano? I can help get you there!

About Steven
Hailing from New York City, Steven W. has been involved in the performing arts his entire life, which began as he received his training from a number prestigious arts institutions...Julliard (where he studied piano), New York University (where he studied music education), and the Katie Agresta Vocal Studio (whose other students include Sting, Bon Jovi, Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lenox and many more, including the casts of numerous Broadway shows).

Steven is currently an indie rock solo singer/musician/producer with a number of albums in release (on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and more); recently spent two months as NY's #1 indie artist on Reverbnation's charts, and continues to perform all over the country.

Having performed on small cabaret stages
for just a few people, and in stadiums for 60,000, he believes in not only teaching technique, but also how to tailor a performance for the appropriate situation. It's this combination of technical training, and performance experience, that Steven brings to his classes as a teacher.

Los Angeles, CA

I teach all skill levels and styles. Every lesson I teach is customized to the individual student and their musical interests. I do not believe in simply teaching people how to play songs; I believe in teaching people how the songs they love are constructed, and how they can incorporate the elements of a piece of music that they like into their personal musical style so they can apply them to everything they play in the future. I use music as a lens to teach the process of learning so that you can reach a point where you feel confident in creating your own exercises to further your development.  My goal is to give you the tools to pursue music, as well as anything else, to the best of your ability without someone watching over your shoulder. That way you’re free to explore whatever it is you love the most!

About Trevor
I am a professional keyboardist with over 25 years’ experience, with training from both Berklee College of Music and Musician’s Institute. Living, playing and teaching professionally in Los Angeles for 10+ years, I have had the privilege of traveling all over the world performing with artists of many different genres, playing everything from intimate jazz clubs to arena pop shows in front of tens of thousands.

Currently, I am the touring organ player for the world-renowned punk rock band Social Distortion and am an endorsed Hammond artist. I am also the founder/keyboardist of a well-known instrumental funk trio, and have released two albums and toured across the U.S. as an original artist. Working with symphonies across the country such as the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, Anchorage Symphony, and many
others while backing up special guest singers such as John Elefante of Kansas and Mickey Thomas of Jefferson Starship. I have also made several TV appearances as a guest performer on shows such as Glee and NCIS.

I teach lessons both online and in-person out of my home in Santa Monica. I own a wide array of instruments including a piano, a Hammond B3, a Rhodes Mark II Suitcase, a Hohner D6 Clavinet and a Moog Little Phatty, so we can focus on techniques that apply to any or all of those classic keyboards. I work with students of all ages and skill levels with a variety of musical goals.

I regularly play and teach in styles including rock, pop, blues, R&B, jazz, funk and classical. Having a deep background in classical piano, I competed nationally in the US Open Music Competition throughout my childhood and won multiple medals (including some gold). In addition to topics specific to the piano, I also teach synth programming/digital music creation, patch creation, MIDI programming, recording techniques, vocal coaching, performance coaching, songwriting, and composition.

I have taken lessons here and there throughout my entire life, but never really advanced much further than learning scales. With his enthusiastic and attentive teaching style, Trevor’s guidance helped me to advance really quickly! Before we even started lessons, he asked me to send him music that I liked and wanted to learn how to play, because he said I it would make me want to practice instead of feeling forced. What a great way to get your students to practice! It was so much fun! Trevor had great lesson plans and focused on music theory to truly get me to understand the instrument. Trevor really took the time to invest in me—he even went so far as to go with me to Guitar Center to help me purchase the right piano. His teaching style is straightforward and encouraging. I recommend him all the time to friends looking to learn piano and I recommend him to you, too!!

I used to play piano for 12+ years as a child. Now as an adult, I was nervous to book a lesson as it felt like a rather heavy-lift to start from scratch again. I had tried working with teachers in the past and although they were decent teachers, I never felt motivated to continue my practice/passion. Trevor, on the other hand, made it easy for me to stay committed to my goal of re-learning music; making it fun, enjoyable and something to look forward to on a regular basis. His knowledge of music theory, technique, and communicative teaching style made it effortless for me to dive right back in! Whether you're new to music, trying to re-start, or are looking to become a professional musician, I have no hesitations in recommending Trevor! My love of music has only grown since starting to work with him and I continue to follow this for years to come. Can't thank him enough!

I have been teaching piano for beginners for several years. I'm a very dedicated teacher, listener and I want to motivate my students to know, learn and listen better and better. First of all, I'm interested in knowing the student's goals and work from there.

About André
I'm a motivated and good listener teacher who loves to see his students accomplish their objectives. I have a Masters degree in Jazz from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor in Classical Double Bass from the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. I'm a active musician, both as a leader of my projects as well as sideman. I have played all around Europe, Egypt as well as much around in the new York area. I have also released two albums under my name, composing all the music in both of them.

I have been teaching for 4 years. Right after finishing my Bachelor degree, I started teaching in two music schools in Portugal: Academia de Amadores de Música (one of the most important music schools in Lisbon) and ESTAL. I have also made part of the staff of the Conservatório de Música of Azores, where I traveled monthly to
teach local students. I have taught double bass, music theory and conducted the school's orchestra. Since I moved to New York, I taught through the Manhattan School of Music Outreach Department, teaching young students about Jazz and Improvisation. I have also taught privately in my home studio, both bass and double bass as well as piano and theory.

I believe that learning an instrument is a journey, just think of me as a tour guide! I believe in learning at your own pace and learning the things you are most interested in. Every step is an accomplishment and I want to assist you in stepping in the directions that will take you where you want to go.

About Chelsea
Welcome everyone!

I have a few beliefs:

I believe that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Whether it is violin, ukulele, piano, their voice, whatever! Music is a part of what makes us human, and is important for personal development.

I believe that no one is "too old" to start up an instrument. Age is only a number and it is never too late to start up something that may become a passion.

I believe that learning an instrument is a journey. Any journey has its ups and downs, but in the end, you are glad you took that first step.

I have been playing violin for over 10 years, and along the way have picked up some ukulele, voice, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and piano. I am a teacher, and I have the knowledge and know-how to pass along to any student. However, I also consider myself a student in that I am always
looking to learn how to improve myself.

Any student of mine will have 100% of my interest in their growth and development as a musician. I can work with a wide variance of ages, having experience in ages 4-12 year old children.

I look forward to meeting with you soon!

Chelsea is a wonderful teacher. Playing a plastic recorder for a week in fourth grade music class is the extent of my musical experience and that was a LONG time ago. Chelsea is great at finding the right place for me to start learning and then laying out for me exactly what I need to work on in order to progress to the next stage of my learning process. I had been considering teaching myself how to play the violin via youtube videos but learned more in the span of one hour-long session with Chelsea than I could have learned in a week going that route. Chelsea was able to address the importance of things like posture and breathing to achieve the best possible sound, without that real time one-on-one instruction this would have been a nuance that I would not have ever picked up on. She is punctual, friendly, polite and patient. I highly recommend hiring her to teach you or your kids an instrument.

I graduated from a well-known music school called Oberlin Conservatory, studied with the director of piano department Prof. Robert Shannon. Later I received my piano performance Master degree in University of Houston, studied with one of the best teacher in Houston — Prof. Nancy Weems. I received full scholarship throughout my career.

I have been teaching piano for 4 years, I’m very good at improving techniques and sight reading skills, many of my students had huge improvement after a few lessons. There is no technical problem that I can’t tackle. I tend to go over books really fast so that you can learn much more in a short period of time, instead of wasting time on the same kind of material, I will make sure you learn some new stuff every week.
