I am a Broadway musician with over 20 years of teaching experience. I know that each student learns differently so I use many different teaching methods and musical genres in lessons. I can help you get started on an instrument, improve your current abilities, work on school band and orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, prepare for college auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.

I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique.

I also specialize in teaching students how to practice so that they can make the most of their practice time and progress as quickly as possible.

Christine
Julie is very easy to work with, she listens to what my objective is and keeps that in mind during the lesson. Julie is very knowledgeable, experienced and fun to work with. I highly recommend her.
Mike
It's never too late to learn if you have the right teacher. Julie is knowledgeable, consistent, and amazingly patient with an old man that sometimes finds himself staring slack-jawed at the sheet music.

When I hit a stumbling block, she always helps me find a way around it. If I'm having trouble internalizing a new concept, she always finds another way to look at it.

Julie has helped me to take the modest musical aptitude that I've squandered for most of my life, and finally begin to focus it.

I'm still early in the learning process, but Julie has me well on the road to achieving the personal goals I set for myself.

Thanks Julie. Keep up the good work.
Adriana
Julie is organized, communicates clearly, and takes teaching seriously. She is patient and understanding while also having quality standards for her students' musicianship. I appreciate her consistency in lesson structure, as well as her continual exploration of the modern tools available for teaching and learning an instrument.

Totally would recommend Jesse for guitar teaching. He is very patient and teaches in a fun way my child was able to grasp and learn from. He is very experienced and a great teacher to learn from.

Flute is a wonderful instrument, and I love to play and teach it.

We will work on basic methodologies to start, and then move towards classical pieces, jazz pieces, or both depending on what you would like to learn.

This instrument is very closely tied to the voice and singing therefore, my lessons center around making the flute very connected to the ears by teaching music theory and ear training as we learn the technique. This method will bring the student deeper into the world of music than would ordinarily be achieved by simple technique exercises.

David was very patient when I struggled with simple concepts and tailored the lesson to supplement areas that needed work. I always leave with a smile, excited to keep practicing.

Julianne M.
My daughter really enjoyed her time with Anne!!
Deb
I can't say enough good things about Anne. Our daughter (now 11) started voice lessons with her about a year ago. Smart and talented and energetic, Anne is awesome with children. She gets our daughter to focus (this can be challenging) and work hard, but always keeps the lesson fun and exciting. Perhaps most importantly, Anne really knows her stuff. Our daughter has learned so much--about listening, getting the best sound, increasing her range, protecting her voice. They work together on finding material that my daughter likes, and Anne even arranges open mic nights at a local club so her students can try performing if they want to. Anne is a voice pathologist as well as vocalist, so you can't go wrong. I recommend her so highly for kids, and I am sure she's great with adults too.
Nancy Lee
After one lesson I know that Annie is going to help me get past my 30+ year phobia of singing in front of people and help get me to a place where I'll want to sing for the fun of it! She is a very compassionate and empathic teacher and is thoughtful with lesson plan and approach.

The key to playing music is to have fun. Whether you are just starting out or if you have been playing for some time, you should have fun with your music. That’s the first lesson I learned when my uncle let me pick up his guitar. It took me a lot of practice to be where I am now, and I learn more about playing guitar every day.

While my main goal is to help you develop your skills and interests as a guitar player, I have a deep love for songwriting. You can learn so much just from hearing a well written song, and even if writing isn’t something you are reading interested in, I hope I can help you develop a deeper appreciation for the craft.

If you take anything away from these lessons I hope it’s this: everyone learns at their own pace. What you know and what you take away from a lesson will be your own, and it might not be the same thing that someone else takes away from that lesson. And no matter who you are learning from, have fun!

About Scott

Hi! My name is Scott, or Scooter, whichever you prefer. I’ve had a love for music since I was a little kid. When I was younger I would walk around the house whistling all day, despite my dad constantly asking me to stop, and the older I got it turned into drumming on whatever I could get my hands o
