About Ha-eun
I have been surrounded by music my whole life and have played violin for 16 years. I went to high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy, obtained a BM in violin performance at Oberlin Conservatory, and am now a Master's student at the Boston Conservatory. I have won competitions, played in professional orchestra gigs, performed with college faculty, soloed with an orchestra, and won the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artists Award.

I have completed a pedagogy course in college and at the graduate level. I have taught children, teens, and adults alike. I had the fortune of studying with wonderful teachers and strive to be like them and pass on their wisdom.

I am passionate about teaching out of a desire to help people express themselves and appreciate music on a deeper level. I am very enthusiastic and adapt my approach to each student's le
vel, personality, and needs while seeking to build a good rapport. I make creative analogies to keep them engaged. I am positive while critiquing because I believe negativity is counterintuitive to effective learning. I have experience working with elementary school kids, having spent three years employed at a Boys and Girls Club.

Just as I believe in culturing love of music in children, I truly enjoy working with older and more experienced students. I am very eager to help them develop their musicality and good technique. I have an extensive repertoire list and thus am able to aid students in learning challenging music such as show pieces and concertos.

I predominantly teach classical music but have helped students in other music activities. With older and more advanced students I am willing to teach music of their own choosing. I have also helped a student prepare for college auditions.

I really look forward to meeting new students and to inspire them to be at their best!

Ha-eun is an extremely devoted instructor and she has been helping me for my audition in a youth orchestra. She is really patient but always eager to push us to our best. She pays attention to the details and give thousands of helpful tips without sounding like a rigid teacher but using a friendly and communicative approach. I feel so lucky to found her on TakeLessons. I never expected an instructor to be so devoted and helpful. Her high efforts to help me makes me feel so motivated to do my best and make her proud. I would continue my lessons with her even though the audition was done!

About John
I have 37 years of playing and 12 years of teaching beginning and intermediate drummers by ear, performance & notation. Preforming drums has brought so much joy to my life and expanded my creativity more than I would have ever realized when I started in 1978. Teaching/sharing my drumming experience is a passion, my students are taught not only how to play drums but also about music structure (verse, chorus, bridge, etc.), how to perform with other musicians and how to dissect a piece of music. Various styles and rhythms are taught and rudiments are covered thoroughly, nothing better than an impressive double stroke roll! I have always been a teacher that I feel can understand each personality and adjust my approach to each lesson as needed and furthermore, I always treat my students with respect, courtesy and patience which I find makes
them more apt to relax, listen, learn, feel the music and have fun!

We feel like we hit the teacher jackpot with John! He really knows music & has a passion for sharing this knowledge. Plus he can REALLY hit those drums. He was patient, flexible, & 'made it fun' with my 12-year-old son picking up drum sticks for the first time. So grateful we booked with 'Mr.John!'

About Devin
I am a drummer/percussionist in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area. I have been playing drums for 12 years as a part of many groups and ensembles, including cover bands, original bands, percussion ensembles, orchestras, and world music groups. I am proficient in many different percussion instruments. I am well versed in jazz, pop, rock, metal, classical, world (Latin, Arabic, etc), and other genres. I earned a bachelors degree in music from St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, MN. Although percussion and drum set were my main focus, I took part in many aspects of music; emphasizing in composition and new media programs as well.

I teach students ranging from child to adult. With the exception of basic rudiments, technique, and other time keeping knowledge, I primarily give student led lessons; guiding the student when needed wit
h questions and answers. I have found this to be the most productive, as the student remains actively engaged with the lesson. I incorporate other instruments into my lessons; this helps the student understand music as a whole and how their parts fits in. For example, I often reference other percussion instruments and melody instruments when listening to recordings. I also will play simple bass or piano lines to accompany the drum set groove played by the student. With todays technology, I stress the importance of recording and critiquing oneself. I offer this as a part of my lessons.

I love playing drums and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you!

I had the pleasure of taking drum lessons from Devin during my senior year of high school. I was looking to attain a stronger skill set in multiple areas of percussion before attending college. Devin is very personable, articulate, and has a fun personality that made it easy to learn. He is very knowledgable, and I feel that I gained an edge going into college by taking lessons from him.

I am a professional choral conductor, singer, pianist, and song arranger. I graduated from Knox College with a Bachelors in Music and Education. I have been working with students and teaching music since 2010 with a focus in vocal technique.

I offer private instruction in conducting, singing, piano/keyboard, music theory, guitar, and ukulele. Lessons are tailored to each student, so any genre can be learned! I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

My personal passion is choral music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
