Phillip F.

Rural Hall, NC

About Phillip

Pianist and singer Phillip F. started learning to play the piano at age 6. Growing up he competed and placed highly in many competitions including playing with the Symphony Orchestra in his home town of Spartanburg, SC after winning it's concerto competition at the age of 17. In college he 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 he worked with The South Carolina Opera company for a season as a member of the ensemble and as Chorus Master.
Since college, he has work
ed with different theater and opera companies as a lead actor and as a musician.
He has many years of teaching experience 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 Bastien 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 ***
Walk into house, on left is a room with a piano and books with big windows to look out through room. 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 Bastien 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.

Phillip is awesome, he is by far the best vocal instructor I've ever had!

I'm a 27 year old male who decided to start up voice lessons again to complement my guitar playing. I'm so glad that I chose Phillip as my instructor. He knows more about singing and how to sing than any instructor I've ever had. He's great!

Luke P.

Winston Salem, NC

About Luke

I majored in music at Berea College, then went on to The University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where I completed a Masters degree in guitar performance and served as the graduate assistant to the guitar department.

For the past ten years I have earned a living performing and teaching guitar. I am a certified Suzuki instructor, and I've held teaching positions at Winston Salem State University and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, along with at least half a dozen other schools and institutions. I've been featured on other artists' records, and received a gra
nt to release an album of my own songs. I regularly perform in a wide variety of bands and ensembles.

I love to teach, and over the years I have taught hundreds, maybe even thousands of lessons. Having learned something from each and every one of my students, I am now at a point where I excel at honing in on the individual interests and learning styles of whoever comes to me for help. There are many ways to learn guitar. The best one is the one that engages and inspires you the most. That said, there are also music fundamentals that we all need to know. My joy as a teacher lies in finding a way for you to master the fundamentals while at the same time following your personal bliss and intuition. We plot the course together, combining your curiosity and enthusiasm with my years of experience.

I also love working with kids. While they are having fun jamming, I discretely provide them with the technique and musicianship they'll need to excel in any musical environment, whether it's conservatory study or playing in a great band.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your enthusiasm is the key to your success, so my lessons are tailored to the interests and abilities of each student. That said, my classical background and dedication to effective teaching inform everything I do.

All of my students learn Music Fundamentals:
-Technique (habits of movement)
-Theory (how music works)
-Aural skills (hearing pitches, chords and rhythms clearly)

Many of my students use books. There are hundreds of great books these days, and I will work with students from any book they choose. Listed here are the books I regularly use. They all deliver great results:

-Aaron Shearer "Leaning The Classic Guitar"
-Will Schmidt and Greg Koch "The Hal Leonard Method"
-Joe Pecoraro "Read This First"
-David Oaks "Music Reading For Guitar"
-William Leavitt "A Modern Method For Guitar"
-Mateo Carcassi "Melodic and Progressive Studies, Opus 60"
-Leo Brouwer "Simple Studies"

Many of my students prefer to work without a book, and that is a great option too. These students learn scales, chords and theory and develop a repertoire of songs. I will show you how to play any song you'd like to learn. You can also work on writing your own songs or compositions, or improvising in any context, be it jazz, blues, Indian raga or flamenco.

Singing is also encouraged!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: music stands, extensive library of all kinds of music, great sound system and ability to stream any song, several guitars, recording equipment, footstools, keyboard and percussion instruments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I'll bring my guitar and books, accessories as needed.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in versatility. I regularly play gigs doing classical, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and world music. All of these genres have a place in my heart, and I've devoted years to learning to play and teach them well.

I am equally polyamorous when it comes to the various things musicians do. I love to sing pop songs, dissect jazz lines, delve into expressive groupings with classical pieces, drill scales and arpeggios, you name it. Reading, improvising, composing and notating, transcribing and playing by ear, memorization, classical technique, blues technique, bluegrass technique, theoretical analysis... hit me up for any of that, or whatever else interests you.

Luke was a very helpful teacher. He knows what he is talking about and is very receptive to questions and concerns. He will lead you in the right direction whatever aspect of guitar you are willing to delve into. I came to him knowing only a couple of chords and songs and came away after a summer of lessons knowing much more about music theory and feeling much more confident in my playing.

Willy M.

Winston Salem, NC

About Willy

Willy has been teaching music for more than a decade, carrying on the tradition he learned when his father taught him piano as a youth. He is a multi-instrumentalist with a degree in music from Earlham College in historic Richmond, IN (the birthplace of recorded jazz, and home of 30s era Genette Records).

As a sound technician Willy gained valuable experience working at the world famous Tarry Town Music Hall near Sleepy Hollow, NY, where he worked with top notch touring bands like Blues Traveler, the Indigo Girls, Paul Shaffer, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the late, great Levon Helm. He al
so worked with A-list actors such as Stanley Tucci, James Cahn, Kevin Bacon and Keanu Reeves.

While living in Austin, TX, Willy was a member of the American Federation of Musicians alongside greats like Los Lonely Boys, George Straight, Lyle Lovett and Willie Nelson.

As a published author, Willy has published two books about open D tuning for the mandolin: "Dead Man's Tuning Vol. 1" and Dead Man's Tuning: Christmas Edition."

As a father of four young children, Willy teaches in a family friendly environment. Willy offers group lessons, called the Stringed Instrument Workshop, for all ages. At the SIW events, he has taught elementary students as well as adults all the way up to 86 years old! Willy is a background checked teacher and would love to pass on his knowledge of music to you and your family!

I wasn't really taking mandolin, but fiddle in the Stringed Instrument Workshop, but I loved it. Willy is a great teacher. I especially enjoyed the SIW, with my kids. It was a lot of fun to learn musical techniques with lots of people of different skill levels. I'm not the best musician, but Willy makes you feel like you can participate even if you don't understand all of the theory.

The Stringed Instrument Workshop last year was really fun because almost everyone in the group won some different musical freebies from different music stores nearby. We had a cookout and a concert, and both of my children were able to perform in front of the class. Willy set up a stage, lights and a sound system for us all to feel like we were stars! It was such a fun time, and we even had hotdogs and marshmallows!

I loved the Stringed Instrument Workshop so much, I had him teach my kids private lessons too, and they love it.

I loved taking lessons with Willy. I am only 7, and I am just learning, but am starting to play the Charlie Brown theme song. I can also play a little bit of Shorten Bread. There's another song too. It's a song that I learned that I really liked, can't remember the words, but it's a good song. I love piano lessons.

Mr. Willy helped me learn the song "Mean" by Taylor Swift!! I was so happy to play! I took the Stringed Instrument Workshop and I loved it! It was so much fun, and I was able to learn with my friends. It was easy to learn, and we learned how to play "Amazing Grace," together. We played it for my church and everyone loved it!!! :)

I will continue playing mandolin, and want to also learn violin, piano and guitar. I can even play "Mean" on the 12 string guitar now in open tunings!!

Jaime E.

Jamestown, NC

About Jaime

***Teaching Philosophy***
I believe music is essential in education, as it teaches self-discipline, improves mental function, and enriches the soul. As a voice teacher, I believe in teaching healthy technique and opening doors to many genres, and fostering creativity and self-expression through composition. I encourage students to participate in choral and dramatic groups to hone their craft, as well as to help push them past their self-imposed limitations. As a cello teacher, I encourage involvement in orchestras and chamber groups, as they teach teamwork and develop listening skills. Mu
sic is such an incredible form of personal expression, and I aspire to help my students find their true musical voices and share them with others.

***Experience***
I have taught private music lessons since 1999. I am currently a music teacher for grades 7 through 12 at Westchester Country Day School in High Point, NC. There I conduct three choirs, teach Advanced Placement Music Theory, and teach general music (which includes basic guitar and piano).

I feel that performance is an integral part of music education and will make sure that my students are given ample opportunity to perform, whether it be at an Open Mic Night, as part of a choir or orchestra, or in a musical production to nurture each of my student's performance abilities.

***Lessons***
First and foremost we need to have fun. Music is fun and so should the lessons be. When it comes to practice I expect students to spend time outside of the lessons practicing to ensure that they see results.

I work with a variety of methods and concepts to ensure that I am building a solid understanding of music in my students. I work on intonation, music theory, sight reading, and expression.

I am comfortable teaching:
Voice: Beginning to Professional (Ages 12 and up)
Cello: Beginning to Intermediate (Any age)
Piano: Beginning to Intermediate (Any age)

***Voice***
I have extensive background in classical technique, and teach proper, healthy belt technique as well. I am comfortable teaching music from all genres and styles. I focus on developing a beautiful and unique sound for each student while maintaining a healthy, flexible voice.

***Cello***
I teach beginning and intermediate level cellists who either rent or own their own instrument. I encourage my students to join an orchestra or string ensemble, as there is no substitute for the experience of being part of a musical team. Cello students will work out of a technique book that will help build a solid foundation. Once basic skills are learned we will start to search out more advanced music.

***Piano***
For piano lessons I am best with beginners. I specialize in working with students who are just learning about music and want to learn the basics of piano. I am comfortable working with all ages of beginning piano student. I can also work with singing students who are interested in also accompanying themselves. Piano students will begin using a technique book that will help build basic skills. Once these are solid, we will start to search out the specific music you are interested in playing. So if you love a song on the radio, keep notes and we'll learn it.

***Studio Equipment***
Private music studio in my home with a Yamaha electric grand piano. I have built a small recording booth and equipment and software for quality recording and editing.

Jamie is a fantastic instructor. In my first lesson alone I felt Jamie knew exactly what my strengths and weaknesses were and how I could improve. She was super easy to work with and very encouraging throughout. She stretched me to try new things that immediately I could hear an improvement. Would highly recommend Jamie for those who are looking to take their singing to the next level.

During my career as a professional singer, Jaime has always been the first person I call for help with my CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music) technique. Over the years, she has helped me tremendously to develop a healthy belt technique and to increase my belt range as well. It would be an understatement to say that she knows her stuff. Oh, and she's an incredible classical singer, too. Just saying.

In addition to the breadth of her vocal knowledge, Jaime is as passionate about and dedicated to her students as you could ever want from a teacher. She always makes learning music fun and accessible, and she will be a champion and friend to you. Jaime is one of the finest singers and teachers I know.

Heather has an innate ability to uniquely assess numerous nuances in my voice. I'm part of a Christian rock band where I have to maintain proper vocal exercises to best prepare me for public performances and studio recordings. She listens well, takes detailed notes, and offers great exercises to help in the precise areas where I struggle the most. Heather is quick to celebrate accomplishments with the student, and patient through the student's struggle to make vocal milestones. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking to improve vocal ability.

I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Very patient, kind and professional. Heather made me feel very comfortable (I tend to get really nervous when singing in front of people) so that helped a ton. After taking lessons with Heather I feel my singing has improved and my knowledge about the piano has expanded. Gives honest and constructive critiques. I would highly recommend taking lessons from Heather to anyone.
