About Nader
I am a violinist and composer. I have trained more than 400 students in more than twenty five years of teaching.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson includes scales, arpeggios, etudes and a new piece of music. I emphasize on correct intonation, accurate rhythm and strong vibrato for better expression and thorough musicality.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio at my home is a spacey room that is properly ventilated and well lit, possessing enough chairs available for both my students and possible guests. There are two music stands and an electric Suzuki piano, which can be used for accompaniment in our lessons, especially in preparation for upcoming concerts.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a 2012 Toyota Corolla car, with a trunk that has ample space to house and carry my instruments and music stands as they are needed.

*** S
pecialties ***
Patience and communicating in an effective way and encouraging students to practice without regarding such a task as a chore.

Mr. Nader is a wonderful teacher who truly cares about his students. He is kind, patient, and funny. When I first started taking lessons from Mr. Nader, I didn't know how to read the notes, let alone play the violin. But through his patience and encouragement I have drastically improved and have come to really enjoy playing the violin. Mr. Nader is very well educated and knowledgeable about a variety of different kinds of music and the history of music. I am very fortunate to have found such a wonderful instructor.

About Heidi
My name is Heidi P. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in music, with an emphasis in vocal performance. I love teaching my students! We always have a fun time singing and reaching goals. I have a great passion for singing opera and classical music, but I teach vocal techniques that can be applied to any genre of music. I have been apart of many operas and performances including the roles of Maddalena in the opera Rigoletto, GrimGerde in Ride of the Valkyries, Carmen in the Opera Carmen, and Chorus in Suor Angelica, and La Traviata. I have also been in the Boise Music Week Productions of Hello Dolly, Beauty and the Beast, and Brigadoon. I let my students choose what type of music they would like to sing, I don't want to force my own style on my students because I want them to enjoy what they sing! Voice lessons are not a place for me to
judge you. Is it a place for us to work together to make your voice the best it can be. Singing is a beautiful art form that is challenging but should also be fun! As I teach, I will give insight to breathing techniques, posture, and vocal anatomy in order to better understand how the voice works! Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, I am here to help. Hope to hear from you soon!

I LOVE Heidi:-) It has been a little over 3 years since I have taken formal lessons and I was so happy that I found Heidi. Not only is she qualified but her prices are perfect for grad students who have very little money to spare but still want to train with a quality vocal coach. She is encouraging and is always sincerely excited about the progress you make. She teaches with clarity and helps you understand how to bring out your best voice:-) I love it!

Heidi is such an amazing teacher!! Since the very first lesson I noticed an improvement in my voice. She knew just the right exercises to help my voice reach notes I didn't think I could reach! Learning from someone with such a love and knowledge of music really made it a wonderful experience and helped me so much!

Brian is great. I could not have asked for a better teacher. He had me up and running on Pro Tools after the first lesson, and I am a true beginner. He is so incredibly well versed on the entire recording process, and excellent in breaking down difficult topics into layman terms. I give Brian my highest recommendation.

About Leanora
I would characterize myself as a laid back, fun, and energetic individual which has served me well personally and professionally. I began my studies approximately thirty years ago. During that time I studied at three different universities specializing in music performance (Walla Walla University, Columbia Basin College and Eastern Washington University). I received a masters in social work and a Bachelors in history. While social work is a far cry from music performance, I have found that this particular profession has assisted me substantially in providing a safe and nurturing environment to new and advanced students. Being able to relate to children and adults who may be shy or unsure of themselves has worked to my advantage. I am always looking to ameliorate the foundation for strong technique. As a performer and teacher my greatest
satisfaction comes from challenging my students comfort line and watching them grow professionally and artistically.

I currently play with four symphonies, chamber groups and substitute for other symphonies throughout Washington state. Because I have been through so many audition processes I feel as though I have excellent insight into the process. I would be able to assist my students in a process that can possibly be one of the most stressful events of their professional lives.

My string studies began at the age of age of eight with Jim O'Brian (served in Army orchestra). Following graduation from Kamiakin High School in 1998, I was accepted into the University of Iowa's school of music. However, I decided to stay close to home and study at Columbia Basin College. It was there that I met my next professor Robert Burroughs. My other university string professors included Maria Zlateva (graduated from University of Texas at Austin), Dr. Philip Baldwin, and Dr. John Marshall who is currently principal cellist of the Spokane Symphony.

My style of teaching is the Suzuki method or string basics. I was raised on the Suzuki method and have found that it provides an excellent foundation for string players. Many of my students have found this helpful with their technique and music theory. My youngest student participated in a talent show with their orchestra last year. Through her hard work and determination she was able to gain a substantial amount of information prior to entering junior high.

What sets me apart from other teachers is that I am strictly a viola instructor. Many viola teachers list themselves as violinists as well. I believe this has helped me because I understand the physical and mental challenges that "we" violists face on a daily basis. I feel privileged knowing that very few people can read alto clef and play such a beautiful instrument. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, don't hesitate to ask me a question.

To all my violists out there inspire yourselves from the greats; William Primrose, Yuri Bashmet, David Carpenter, and Nigel Kennedy.

Thanks for looking at my bio.
Happy playing :)

About Michelle
The first song that made me want to learn guitar as a kid was Smoke On The Water and Nancy Wilson of Heart inspired me to be a Rock guitarist. I've studied guitar and music from grade school all through college and spent countless hours listening to my favorite songs over and over to figure them out (yeah, that was before youtube was a thing :).

I've played guitar in school jazz bands and classical guitar ensembles both recreationally and professionally. I'm currently in two working bands (www.facebook.com/VCRidaho, and www.facebook.com/coldrail), have played on, co-produced and recorded three CDs (BlindHorizon - ColdRail, Christmas At Home by the Karel Sisters, The Taste of Life Itself - Sagin' Time).

My personal philosophy is that life should be fun and learning music should be GREAT FUN. In all my years of teaching one of t
he things I've found that makes music fun for the student is when I'm able to teach something they thought was complicated in an easy way that makes the student smile and say "that's it!?! I thought it was more complicated. I can do this!". If that sounds like the kind of lesson experience you'd like to have then get in touch and let's make music!

One last thing. I have completed a 3rd party independent background check and am most happy to provide you that information so feel free to ask.

About Daniel
Hi! I am a saxophonist, flautist, clarinetist, pianist, and, most importantly, a lover of music. I began taking piano lessons when I was five years old; ever since then, music has been a huge part of my life. I've played in concert bands, marching bands, jazz bands, rock bands, wedding bands, pit bands, etc!. I moved to New Jersey to study at William Paterson University's jazz program and to immerse myself in the fertile musical environment that this area provides. I am always looking forward to working with new students and helping others along on their own musical journeys. Can't wait to do the same with you!
