At an elementary and middle school level I have helped my students place into the top bands in their schools. At a high school level I have help my students win spots in All-State ensembles, top bands, prize awards at solo competitions. At a college level I have helped students refine the style of their orchestral excerpts for their orchestra auditions and at a professional level I have helped many colleagues prepare their lists as they prepare for their audition. I have been a member of Orchestra Iowa for four years and during that time have been on audition committee's to hire various instruments in the orchestra. I can teach you a winning approach!

Whether you're coming for roman numeral analysis help or analyzing a major symphony, I have extensive knowledge of the inner workings of music. For example, music contains patterns, relationships and structures and I will help you master recognition of harmony through ear-training and achieve successful SATB part writing for your assignment. We'll work together so you leave the lesson with not just an idea of theory, but a firm grasp on the fundamentals. I will give you the tools to bolster you in navigating this tricky element of music.

I've been teaching piano for over 12 years to students of all ages. I studied classical piano under the tutorship for an classical pianist from Oberlin Conservatory and am currently on the piano faculty at Music and Arts in Franklin, TN. I'd love to help you!

You will get a excellent foundation for technique, style, sight-reading, harmony, and repertoire than will transfer to any other genre. Beginning students will start with a foundation for technique and apply these to basic repertoire, learn to read music, and play scales. Intermediate and beyond will build and improve on these skills to learn classical repertoire and more complex pieces.

About Natalie

Natalie is a NYU and BMI Workshop trained composer of songs, musicals, and concert music who has helped many songwriters find their voice and fine-tune their skills. She is particularly adept at identifying what is keeping a song from working (whether it be music, lyrics or both) and helping writer

My love for the piano started at the age of thirteen. I majored in Music Education at Frostburg State University, and studied piano under various professors. I have eleven years experience in teaching children and adults the piano. I hope to convey a love of music during lessons. Playing the piano shouldn't be stressful. It should be rewarding, relaxing, and fun.

About Jocelyn

I received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Frostburg State University. The piano was my main instrument of study. I have taught piano lessons to people of various ages. I believe that anyone can learn how to play the piano. Music is an experience that can help boost one's self

Evelyn is very sweet and encouraging and made my first lesson so much fun. After my seven year hiatus from studying piano, she quickly assessed my strengths and weaknesses and created an action plan. She assigned beautiful pieces and really crammed a lot into an hour session. Feeling very excited to continue working with her.

"I took lessons with Masaru through middle school, high school, and from time to time in college. It's always been great having lessons with him. He is really good at explaining musical concepts and saxophone techniques, far better than my teachers at school would. I've learned so much about not just the saxophone, but music in general. His understanding and passion for music really show through in lessons. And it's been a lot of fun!"

"As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back."

"My husband & I wanted our grand daughter to take lessons to learn how to breathe and sing without straining her voice. She has been learning under Tanisha's guidance for the past 9 months and there has been such a significant
improvement in her voice. To this day our grand daughter has preformed in two recitals under Tanisha's Foundation and she has become very confident when preforming and her voice is much stronger.
Tanisha is a very personable and caring teacher. We just love her!"

I’m normally a piano player, and had no experience with guitar, but he decided to take me in and teach me what he knew. From the first lesson, I immediately knew, “This guy knows what he’s doing!” I highly recommend him as a teacher. He’ll definitely help you grow."
