Certified to teach Music Theory

Currently perform traditional classical music, jazz and blues standards.

About Aleena
I've been teaching piano and art for 7 years and I've been associated with TakeLessons for 6 of those years in 2 different cities. I am able to travel during certain times and I also have studio and online availability. ***Although my training was in classical music, I currently compose and perform a variety of genres besides classical.

I get so much gratification teaching and music improves math and other cognitive skills. I'm an encouraging and flexible teacher because every student is different and requires their own focus and individualized lesson plan. My teaching style includes the classical method and basic to intermediate theory integrated with contemporary methods.

I also employ an enjoyable environment and open communication with parents/guardians and adult students.

****One of my students was a 16 years old virtuoso i
n classical guitar. He came to me because he never learned how to sight read. Within 6 months he was writing his own music and decided to change his specialty from guitar to piano.
*****Another one of my students was told he would never be able to "sight read" which is to read music from paper but he was reading music and within a few months he was writing it himself.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I encourage anyone who is interested in learning to begin lessons with the knowledge that they can eventually create any kind of art they desire.
I continue to perform and create which enables me to sharpen and maintain my skills.

I hope to have an opportunity to meet you soon and I encourage you to ask any questions you have!!!

*****I highly encourage scheduling only 30 minutes for children younger than 12 and beginners of other ages. Students are more likely to focus and enjoy their lessons when they are shorter in the beginning. They can always be extended later.

I started playing recognizable melodies at 18-months old. I have over 40 years of performance experience, and 20 years of teaching experience. I love sharing classical and contemporary tools with those that desire to create and to perform.

About Joel
I started playing recognizable melodies on the piano at 18 months old. At that time I was told that I even had perfect pitch. By age 5, my mother started giving me classical, gospel, and improvisational lessons. I was one of her 50 students until my senior year in high school. Through elementary, junior high, and high school, I received a lot of performance experience from school marching/concert bands, choirs, church choirs, piano concerts, band/choral conducting, and composing.

I received my BBA in Finance from the University of Texas at Arlington; through college and to the present, I have received over 25 years of performing/directing experience from overseeing two mega-church music ministries. At these ministries, I served as the department head, responsible for lead piano, directing, arranging, worship leading, and departmen
tal oversight.

I have produced 10 personal instrumental projects, and I have produced and recorded over 40 projects for other local, regional, and international artists. I currently travel with national, jazz, recording saxophonist, Joseph Vincelli, and my personal band Zamar. We have performed with a number of acts from Kirk Franklin, Darren Rahn, Kirk Whalum, Boney James, Fred Hammond, and many more.

As an instructor, I have been blessed with an ability to be relatable, relevant, musical, creative, fun, and engaging. I understand the language of music as a performer, and instructor, but most importantly, I value the ability to help the student find their own path of learning the joy of making music vocally and instrumentally. With over 18 years of private teaching experience and 30 years of group experience, I have gained a wealth of knowledge on how to be instructive and personal with the young or older beginner, intermediate and even advanced players. Let's grow together musically.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very laid back, although goal-oriented. We have fun while seeing progress. For piano, I typically use the Alfred Series "Alfred Basics 1 - 6" or the Adult All-in-One for the Older Beginner. In the first 3 - 6 months, one will become familiar with basis technics and concepts behind creating music. These concepts will be the foundation behind learning how to read music, play by ear, and create your own songs in any style.

We would move a little faster for the older beginner and work through the Alfred's All in One in conjunction with introducing my 5 steps to performance for any popular style. These steps have been very valuable for those that are wanting to play piano, guitar, bass, or even sing.

For vocalist, I work through Estelle Liebling, Vocal Course, Alfred Piano (as an instrumental reference) and a number of practical performance techniques that I have gained over the years to sing in more of a pop, jazz, gospel setting. We will work on performance techniques and develop the ear to gain confidence to perform in various popular settings. I will also introduce creative ways to make up original music using basic theory and ear training.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic Piano, Yamaha MOXF8, Roland Fantom, Protools 9, Logic ProX, Midi Keyboards, Bass Mod 5 String Bass, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, and Tama Drum Kit.

*** Specialties ***

*Teachers
marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and

Joel is not only an outstanding musician, he is also a great teacher! I had the pleasure of taking piano lessons from him and enjoyed every minute of it and learned a ton. His instruction was a wonderful supplement to what I learned at the University. His is very knowledgeable, competent technically and hilarious! In addition to everything he offers musically, he is one of the best people I've ever known. Thank you Joel, for sharing your gifts!

Joel is a great teacher. He has patience, keeps on track, gives good feedback, and knows all kinds of music. He has taught me bass, and vocals. I am a lead in my school musical and I owe it all to what he has taught me! I would recommend Joel for anyone who wants to learn about music. He is a very good, reliable, professional... all the stuff you look for in a teacher.

I studied piano at the University of Central Florida and can teach classical piano, music notation, sight reading, harmonic theory, scales, arpeggios, chord progressions, and improvisation. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with novice players of all ages.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

I'm a music teacher in DC and also case manage special needs students.

About Charles
Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.

My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.

In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local rap artist.

Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.

My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my col
lege years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.

Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

*** Lesson Details ***
Within the first three months of lessons student will gain a strong foundation of sight reading and basic drum techniques in both rudiment studies and playing the drum set.

I utilize rewards for perfect practice and each lesson contains a safe, fun learning atmosphere with students exhibiting in their best behavior.

Our son has never played in a marching band before but is interested in playing in the marching band when he attends college in July so we were specifically looking for an instructor who had marching band experience to teach our son since he's never participated in the marching band in high school. We saw Mr. Stewart's profile and decided to have him work with our son. That was the BEST decision that we could have ever made. We have been nothing but impressed with Mr. Stewart. He definitely has the gift of teaching and he is very patient, knowledgeable, and he challenges our son to get better by giving him homework after each session. Our son absolutely LOVES Mr. Stewart and he is always excited for each lesson and to practice what Mr. Stewart has taught him. Our son went from not playing in the marching band at all in high school to making his college band and receiving a scholarship all thanks to Mr. Stewart. We are very grateful for his outstanding teaching and we would definitely recommend Mr. Stewart 100%.

Charles is calm and patient, and yet gently pushes for better and better performance every lesson. As the parent, it is amazing to me to see how much my son has learned in only 3 lessons... and working on a drum set right from the beginning has been very inspiring to my son. We highly recommend Charles!

Aimee is wonderful! The best singing instruction I have ever had, by far.
Since day 1 she has been helping me to work on my singing technique by doing exercises that have strengthen my voice.
Also, Aimee is a teacher during and after the lesson. One of the things I appreciate most about here is that after every lesson she takes the time to prepare a sheet for me to practice, and whenever I pick a song I want to learn for the following week, she does research and preparation on it, so by the time the lesson comes, she has always great pointers and suggestions for me.
Looking forward to many more lessons!

I have 10+ yrs experience teaching piano to students of all ages and backgrounds. We can focus on classical, jazz, popular, musical theater, just about anything. We'll work on growing your repertoire, practicing effectively and efficiently, and learning new pieces more quickly. If you have an audition or performance coming up, I can help you prepare and take your playing to the next level. I have a passion for teaching my own instrument of choice and I'm excited to work with you!

About Greg
I am an experienced pianist, accompanist, director, and arranger. I have played for wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours, galas, parties, recitals, recordings, musicals, competitions, and private lessons. Directing experience includes musicals and shows, professional and student choirs, and high-caliber collegiate a cappella. As an instructor I specialize in group and private lessons in piano, voice, trumpet, and theory, as well as chorus and band.

In all of these settings I have made and used original transcriptions and arrangements for various instrumentations, including brass ensemble, marching band, solo piano, 4-hand piano, solo instrument and piano, voice and piano, and a cappella voices.

I am based in NYC, but I can provide many services via the internet, such as transcriptions, engravings and copyist work, arrangements and
orchestrations, and in some cases private lessons via video call.

Please contact me with any questions you have! Thank you.

I feel I've learned a lot studying with Greg Matteson. My lessons were very enjoyable and always interesting. They were also productive, because my practicing was productive - I always knew exactly how I was supposed to practice. This seems so obvious, but sometimes teachers don't give enough specific instructions, and you don't make as much progress. I mainly wanted classical, but we also did a little jazz and chords/theory. I appreciated that he offered this. Highly recommend!

About Ailey
Dear my potential future students!

I'm very looking forward to meeting and working with you! My name is SooJi and I will be your new piano/Korean teacher and we will be walking this amazing journey together! Isn't it interesting!!! I'm glad you chose me as your new teacher and I'm very excited to have you as my new student!

I'm a specialized, professional classical pianist, traveling around the United States, Asia, and Canada for various fundraising and solo concerts. I've been teaching children, age from 3 to 15 and beyond for almost five years!
My profession is spreading the music and its love to the people who appreciate its magic, but my most important goal is to share the music with young people who love to learn and play it!

Music is a lot of fun and so is piano! Piano is a magic instrument! You will love learning it and p
laying it for yourself, your family, friends, and your puppies too! I am very thrilled to share my passion for music with you! and I hope you and I will be new best friends, beyond being just a teacher and a student!

I am a very funny and kind teacher:) When you meet me, you will realize "she is very funny" HAHA!!!
Just choose me and you will see why many students have worked with me and love learning music with me! And let me know if you have any questions about lessons or anything that is not about music too! I'm more than happy to answer them for you!

One thing! If you are interested in booking lessons with me, please only book two/three! Sometimes it is very difficult to find a good, I mean "really-good-matching" teacher for a student. I want to be the best teacher for you and I promise I will, but if for any reasons, we are not good matches, I will try my best to find a good one for you!

If you have any questions, please let me know! Also, if you are interested in "Me" please go and have a look at my site!

SooJi has been teaching my 11 year old son for three years. I remember the day I met her. She was smiling for whole time of our first meeting. She helped us getting a good conditioned used keyboard for practice, by taking her time. One thing I always wondered was "does she have anger?" Before being a father, I'm also an artist, painter, so I know ho some artist behave which irritates me sometimes. SooJi recommended me to stay during few lessons so I can observe my son's improvements over time. She never gets mad. Literally, NEVER. Being a teacher is difficult job. Students can be rude and that makes teachers angry and sometimes lessons go real wrong. One day, my son got so tired that he couldn't focus on lesson. I got mad but SooJi said "that's ok. I understand. People work and get tired and that's normal. We have few minutes left so why don't we play something fun then?" and my son smiled. I don't know, but I can definitely feel SooJi has a very special talent of making people feel better and more comfortable. She knows how to ease people and how to deal with problems without getting angry or shouting at kids. Her lessons are so much fun, yet so much learning too. Sometimes even I enjoyed the lesson and I participated and SooJi and my son laughed at me haha. Before meeting her, my son never knew the "music" but after having lessons with her, my son already just completed his third solo recital which was around 40 minutes. I was so proud of him that I actually cried during the concert. SooJi is not just a teacher. My son one day told me that SooJi is his best friend. They get along well, my son laughs a lot which doesn't happen often and SooJi makes silly jokes that make him feel ease during lessons. They are just too many good things I can say about her, but I won't because it will get way longer.
One thing I want to say is if people want to be a teacher, they need to learn from her. They need to observe SooJi's talent, humor, kindness, and smiles. We love her so much and we appreciate her playing during our wedding. Thank you SooJi! You are our second daughter! We love you so much!

Having been a musician for 25 years, I've played in some incredible ensembles with musicians from all over the world! Our high school band was one of the best in the state, which I was consistently at the top of my section.

I earned a clarinet scholarship to one of the best music institutions in the nation where I performed in the Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra. Performing Les Miserables with original Broadway cast members is still my most favorite experience!

In college I also applied piano playing more seriously. Students seeking to learn the fundamentals will be served well in my studio!

If you're looking for fun and informative, helpful jazz piano, or contemporary piano lessons of any kind, I know you'll enjoy lessons with me! First and foremost, I enjoy teaching piano lessons so much because of my passion and love for the instrument. Also, because of my young age, I can relate to young people extremely well but feel very comfortable teaching people of all ages.

About Lucas
I am a professional jazz/contemporary pianist from Illinois. I graduated Eastern Illinois University with a degree in jazz piano performance.

I have about five years of experience teaching private music lessons, and although I'm just starting out, students can expect a fun, energetic, and helpful lesson experience, with significant improvement and a newfound excitement about their instrument every week. I care deeply about my music and any students that come to me looking for improvement.

Currently I'm working for Celebrity Cruises, so my availability for online lessons is limited. However, when I sign off the ship on November 25th of 2017, I look forward to a much more open schedule for teaching, both online and in person. In the past, I've had experience teaching both drum set and piano lessons privately. I also have extensive experi
ence working in theaters and gigging with other jazz players all throughout Illinois.

I am passionate about all styles of music but I am particularly excited to teach jazz and contemporary music. I find it extremely easy and enjoyable to relate to people of all ages and I believe it is extremely important and beneficial to teach each individual differently according to his or her particular personality and learning style.
