About Jesse

I started to fall in love with music when I saw the Beatles Anthology on TV; got my first guitar when I was 15 and have been hooked ever since. I started playing in Rock Bands in high school and started teaching lessons my senior year of high school in Dale City Virginia; then I got real serious about music and decided to go to Music School. I received my Bachelor Degree in Music Performance from VCU in 2006 and have been teaching lessons in the Richmond area ever since. I play many instruments around Richmond and Central Virginia, and you can most notably see me playing mandolin with bands such as, The River City Band and A Good Natured Riot. I teach every style that a student is willing to learn, everything from Italian Opera to Hip-hop funk. If a student is passionate ...

I am very pleased with Mr. Spencer's teaching. My Grandson is very anxious to go to his lessons on Tuesday and now after 4 lessons he has asked if he can continue. I highly recommend Mr. Spencer, when a friend asks who Xander is taking lessons from.

Sandra H. Henrico, VA

About Sandra

I studied under Mr. Willis Ley at Ley Studio for eighteen years. She was an accompanist for the Heritage School of Dance for twelve years and also played for the School for the Richmond Ballet for One Year. Sandra was trained in contemporary, patriotic and classical music as well as music theory. She has taught children and adults piano both in their homes as well as in her home. She is an accomplished pianist who will give the student a rewarding and fulfilling experience in mastering the keyboard to their fullest potential and play any song for there own enjoyment and for the enjoyment of others. *** Lesson Details *** As a teacher, I would work with the student on learning there favorite song. This would be a goal to set for the student for the first three months. They would be

Sandra has been a wonderful piano teacher for my daughter Ayn. Ayn started taking lessons from Sandra in April this year. Within the short period of time, she has made a lot of progress. Sandra is also a very caring person.

I highly recommend Sandra if you are looking for someone to teach piano.

Thanks,

Sandra H. is a teacher you can rely on to encourage you to perform not only for yourself, but for an audience. I can't remember a lesson day when Ms. Sandra wouldn't tell me, once I had mastered a piece, to play for the church congregation, or to one of her colleagues' open recitals. One specific time, I was asked to play 3 songs for the congregation by someone who heard Ms. Sandra specifically praising my skill. I was told to form a group of 3 total, so I invited a friend and my brother to play the trumpet and the violin, respectively. Ms. Sandra was very encouraging and determined to assist in perfecting the pieces I would do within the week I had to prepare, and I'm certain that without the help, the performance would have been a complete, total disaster. She not only provided a teacher's support - helping me practice the correct rhythm and speed, to name the parts I had trouble with - she also gave me a friend's support, telling me not to allow stage-fright to consume my confidence before I even had a chance to start.

What can I say? She's a great teacher, and cares for her students beyond the borders of the musical world.

About Susannah

Hello! I am a piano teacher living and working in the Richmond area. I have 19 years of experience playing piano. As someone who has had literally hundreds of piano lessons, I can appreciate what makes a lesson "good". I remember as a kid always feeling bad for my friends who dreaded going to their music lessons. I was lucky to have wonderful teachers and enjoy my experience studying and playing music. As a teacher, I am committed to making sure my students have the same positive experience. I take having  fun seriously with my students whether they are 5 or 50. Playing the piano has way too many benefits to become a chore! I have high expectations for my students and help them reach their goals in a low-key, non-stressful, pleasant environment. *** Lesson Details *** My ...

Susannah is a pleasant and attentive teacher. She went the extra mile by doing research when I had questions about music theory and offered useful constructive criticism about my playing and technique. Also, she was adaptive to my own goals so overall, I had a great experience.

About Connor

I first fell in love with music at the age of 7 after hearing Led Zeppelin's "¬úBlack Dog". I soon after received my first guitar and started learning all of my favorite classic rock songs. Over time my tastes began to branch out to include all kinds of music from country to jazz. Knowing that I wanted to pursue a long-term career in music, I decided to choose a college with a strong music program, and received a bachelor's degree in music performance and jazz studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2010. As a jazz guitarist, I perform regularly in a variety of settings with various ensembles. For the last several years I have played at various venues in the Richmond area, such as Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, Tobacco Company restaurant, Havana 59, Maymont, and at ...

He is GREAT at making me understand theory, which I never have. He's also exciting and challenging in learning how to look at music and anticipate/understand where it's going versus my habit of only looking one note ahead at a time. I wish he was a little more interested in teaching classical music, but I also understand that the new stuff I am learning from him will greatly improve my playing of that.
