Adrienne K.

Philadelphia, PA

will encourage you to become the best musician you would like to become, and l will tailor my teaching to your learning style. Whether you are taking lessons for fun or are disciplined and serious, you will be continuously improving while feeling challenged.

About Adrienne

Why and how did I get into taking harp lessons? Well, as a young girl, I remember being mystified by the harp in Fantasia and when I was in high school, my dad found a teacher. After the first lesson, I was hooked! My 10 years of piano study and 8 years of flute background helped me advance quickly at the harp while starting at the age of 16.

I began my higher education at Penn State University where I entered as a flute major and continued my harp and piano studies. After playing principal harp with the Penn State Philharmonic Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble, I realized harp to be my
true calling and switched my major instrument. I graduated from Penn State in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and completed a Professional Performance Certificate on the harp at Penn State in 2010.

I received a Masters of Music in Harp Performance at Temple University, where I studied with the principal harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Elizabeth Hainen. I have been lucky to have played some of the best orchestral repertoire in some of the most amazing concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Heinz Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Kimmel Center.

I believe to be an exceptional teacher you must be able to teach through example and be an exemplary performer which is why I continue to perform professionally throughout Philadelphia (and because I love it!). I have played with many groups throughout Philadelphia such the Curtis Institute, The Mendelssohn Club, the Landsdowne Symphony, St. Peters by the Sea, Zelda Symphony of Goddesses, Music At Penn's Woods, Nittany Lion Symphony, and Williamsport Symphony.
I am a classically trained musician who loves playing around with pop and jazz in her spare time. My philosophy is that I will teach whichever genre will inspire the student to sit down and practice!

I will encourage you or your child to become the best musician he or she would like to become, and l will tailor my teaching to my student's learning style. Whether you are taking lessons for fun or are disciplined and serious, you will be continuously improving while feeling challenged.

I promise if you start taking music lessons with me, you'll wonder why you hadn't started sooner!

Michael C.

Philadelphia, PA

Learn to read, write and perform on the piano. Play simplified versions of your favorite songs while making your way through Alfred's basic piano library. Using software, I create recordings of my students exercises; students experience an enjoyable way to practice and develop their skills playing along with recordings. These recordings are made and adjusted specifically for each learner. The software allows me to tailor a practice session specifically for each student.

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Phil
adelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ensemble also know as Metagroove. During this time Michael had shared stages with guitarist John Scofield, Singer Ike Willis (Frank Zappa Band), Medeski Martin and Wood and The Disco Biscuits among countless others.

C. has completed a Master of Arts in music education as well as Bachelor of Music in bass performance. Michael is qualified to teach on bass, upright bass, guitar, drums, piano, voice and a rare instrument called steel pan (steel drum) among others. Michael performs as a freelance musician. He can be found performing regularly at private parties and events around the greater Philadelphia area. He has performed playing most styles and genres of music. Among these styles are Pop, R & B, Blues, Hip Hop, Jazz, Calypso, Flamenco, Latin, Pop, Musical Theater and Rock & Roll.

C. is a trained professional and prefers to cater his lessons to the individual need of each student. He believes that each student is unique and will encounter challenges in their own manner. Michael likes to supplement his lessons using musical interests of the student. C. has been known to arrange popular pieces for recital performances for his students. Some of the pieces he has arranged for his students include Something in the Way She Moves (Beetles), Long distance Run Around (The Who), Iron Man (Black Sabbath), That' €™s What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction), Hall of Fame (The Script) among many more. Michael encourages his students to use the music they love to challenge their ability and cognitive processes. Michael has the experience and training required to inspire and motivate you to become successful not only in music but in your daily endeavors.

*** Lesson Details ***
Michael has over twelve years experience teaching music and chooses to cater his lessons to the goals of his clients. He does not follow a set curriculum because different students tend to have different goals and expectations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Logic Pro X, Reason, Fast Track pro audio, Double Bass, Piano, Rhodes Electric Piano, Acoustic guitar, Electric Guitar, Flute, Sax, Clarinet, trumpet, Electric basses, Steel Pans (drums), etc.

Audio recordings of each lesson are free of charge and available upon request. C. is capable of creating demos and audio recordings as well as audio production of original material.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Laptop, Guitars, PA system, Basses, Metronome, Method Books, etc.

*** Specialties ***

Adam K.

Method books used only for structure and support. Build effective fundamental skills and improve your technique, theory, and improvisation in Pop, Rock, Classical, R&B, Soul, and other genres!

About Adam

I have been passionate about music all of my life. I have been teaching guitar and piano for 9 years. I'm a doctoral student at Chestnut Hill College pursuing a degree in clinical psychology with plans to become a music therapist. I learned guitar and classical piano under 2 private teachers while pursuing my Psychology degree and music minor at Rutgers University in NJ.

Music was a way for me to find peace, structure, confidence, and an outlet for personal expression and creativity outside of my everyday life. I've grown as a person and a musician through music. I get excited when I see
my students learn enjoy playing something new. I love music more than anything else and that love is something I try to bring out in my students. Once there is love for music, everything grows naturally. I teach to help my students find those strengths in themselves to live a fulfilling life through their instrument.

***Lesson Details***

We create daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to achieve.

Guitar: After 3 to 6 months of learning with me, you will have a basic knowledge of chords, how to read musical notation, strum to play. Most importantly, you will have learned 3 or 4 songs of your choice so that you can experience the joy of expressing yourself through music.
To achieve these results, you must be willing to practice 20-30 minutes a day.

***Specialties***

I specialize in teaching students to learn to play by ear and improvise songs based on their tastes, style, and ability level. I also walk students through how to write and record semi-professional quality songs with drums, vocals, guitar, and piano. Music genres I cover are mainly Pop, Pop/Rock, Folk, Blues Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative, and Classical (piano only)

*** Studio Equipment ***

I provide a comfortable, quiet room with live instruments, and playback and recording equipment. I expect students to bring a guitar, books, sheet music, picks, and a tuner.
Instruments:
1. Taylor Acoustic Guitar
--picks, tuner, and capo
2. Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar
-- Marshall 100W Amplifier
-- Classic Cry Baby Wah Effects Pedal
3. Casio PX-310 Weighted 88-Key Piano Keyboard

Professional, responsible, and analytical. Adam is flexible and takes constructive criticism like a champ. As a music fan of local music, I hired him Adam after seeing one of his performances and he has never disappointed me. He is kind and accepting and an exceptional teacher - great listening skills, very compassionate, and completely non-judgmental. Adam kept me motivated through the challenges of a new beginner at guitar to get me to where I am today. He supported me to not be hard on myself and pushed me to grow. Adam has the unique set of interpersonal skills to excel in the music teacher field. I would recommend him to any student!

Tyler E.

Philadelphia, PA

My approach to introductory piano is for my students first to understand music as the universal language it is. Identifying the elements, patterns, fingering, reading and theory will be examined. Genres will be discussed with the goal of the individual learning to play a new song by the end of our journey.

About Tyler

Hi There! My name is Tyler and my younger pupils call me Mr. Tyler. I am a Philadelphia native with a background in the Performing Arts. I have taught children ages 5+ and yep! that means adults too. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano, working out, attending shows, playing video games, doing research, contemplating, shopping, teaching and of course furthering my craft. I offer great advice and always aim to make a positive impact on the life of another. I believe there is a lesson to be learned often and we could never know too much. The human mind has an unlimited capacity. Theater a
nd Film are my specialty and Music is my second love and I've directed for the stage and choir.

Whether you are preparing for a role, school play, variety show, needing to be coached, audition or need to brush up on your skills, then I am here for you! Acting can be very therapeutic, challenging and fulfilling! Music can be very liberating and visceral. Piano is a blissful introduction to all the different flavors of music. Writing is an intellectual outlet crucial to all of humanity. If you can learn to express yourself through these mediums then you will go far! :-)
