About Laurel
I grew up in orchestra programs at school with the Viola as my main instrument, got my Bachelor's in Music Education and my Masters in Musical Anthropology. I have years experience teaching Viola and Violin to students of all ages and goals.

Fostering a love of music is one of the most fun ways to positively impact those around you! I love music and it has given me so many positive experiences, friends, travel. It brings me joy to help others find and build their musical talents.

About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

Linda is easily the most patient and welcoming person I've ever worked with. She has incredible knowledge over a vast array of topics and she is eager to share with others. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality of all teachers. Her lessons have proved a great way to build a solid base in my field of interest. as well as providing me with a well rounded and wonderful mentor that I'm sure to rely on for many other lessons in the future- banjo or otherwise!

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

About Cassidy
Trained as a music historian as well as a performing violinist, I have spent years both being coached and learning to coach. I love deciphering individuals' unique learning styles so as to craft an engaging approach to help them understand the subject they're exploring—especially when that subject involves the English language.

For over a year I have worked professionally as a writing and research mentor, aiding undergraduate staff at the University of Michigan's Gershwin Initiative with crafting their research into an incisive, compelling product that speaks to laymen and professionals in their fields alike. My aim is to teach students the "why," not simply the "how," and to show them through logical reasoning how effective writing strategies successfully draw the reader along. I strive to put them into the reader's place, teaching th
em how to view their own work objectively and understand how to guide their readers most effectively.

About Khaliah
I am absolutely in love with teaching Spanish. My major in college was Spanish, with a concentration in Education. I studied in Spain for a semester during school and became truly fluent in the language. After college, I went on to teach high school Spanish. I taught basic levels and advanced levels. Next, I worked at a private school where I taught all grades from Kindergarten - 8th grade. During this time I also held a weekend class where I taught basic level Spanish to adults.

I am passionate about helping others learn and the curriculum that I use is made up of several resources that I have accumulated over the years. I am always learning more and exciting ways to teach and I am looking forward to helping reach your goals with Español!

About Jean
Hello!

I'm a university student who is currently studying music performance. I am interested in taking on a few students this summer. My specialty is brass performance (tuba, euphonium, trombone, etc), however, I can also teach basic music concepts such as reading music, and basic piano skills. Whether it is learning to actually perform and play on an instrument, or whether it is simply being able to audiate and then tap out a tune on a piano, I can teach these skills! I am very passionate about bringing basic musicianship to all kinds of people; all people should be able to recognize (or reproduce) the skills it takes to do any type of music. My teaching philosophy is very largely about music appreciation and music application. One will learn to appreciate old types of music and new types of music (like pop), and one will learn to app
ly their skills to the type of music that best interests them!

I also teach Spanish and French in addition; I have 3 years of French experience and 6 years of French experience; I would love to take on some beginner students!

With regards to these lessons, prices are entirely negotiable. Simply send an email and we can discuss.
I am willing to travel!
