About Elizabeth

I have taught flute to children and adults for about 20 years. During that time, I have continued to develop as a flutist by taking my own lessons with professional symphony players and by playing principal flute in a community orchestra. I strongly believe in positive reinforcement and applauding my students as they make strides. You may find my profile on Linked in, and Elizabeth Pickens, flute instructor on Facebook. I also have a website fluteteacher.net which I encourage you to visit.

Elizabeth and Mlada
A great teacher for the starting or intermediate flute student. Lessons are held in her house. Many opportunities are provided for playing competitively or concerts around Scottsdale.

Andrea
As an adult student I appreciate Elizabeth's attention to so much more than just the notes on a page. She is a terrific encourager, and an especially good problem solver for people like me who have a stream of questions about the instrument, its place in music and history, and music theory. I recommend her for students who are beginning as youngsters and for others who choose to learn to play the flute at any stage in life because she believes that music enhances life.

About Giorgia

I started my solo and backup singer career at the age of 12, working for RG Recording Studio (Italy). When I was 15 I founded a children's choir (ages 5 to 15) called Voci di Pace. I trained them as soloists and as an ensemble, as well as conducted them through the professional recording of dozens of CDs. I also trained and conducted students for the recording of highschool musicals.

I began my conservatory bachelor degree training in cello and chamber music in 1997, and graduated 2010. Since then, I have studied singing technique with pop star Silvia Mezzanotte and with opera singers Chiara Fiorani and Noa Frenkel.

I love to teach singing, singing in Italian and Italian diction to students of all ages and backgrounds who are ready to explore their own souls and bodies and to learn how to be themselves through sound and music.

Giorgia is an awesome teacher! I was nervous about singing in front of people, but Giorgia creates a comfortable environment and makes every lesson informative and fun. I have a much better understanding of the fundamentals of singing and I feel more confident. Unfortunately I am moving out of the area, otherwise I would definitely continue lessons!

Giorgia was my first teacher in singing when I was just 8 years old. Since then she has always been a model for me: her talent, her competence, her determination really impressed me. She is able to teach very delicate and complexed topics with genuine irony letting your hair down. I strongly recomend her as a teacher, and I will always thank her for letting me able to apreciate at best music.

Giorgia is amazing! She has an incredible ability to make you feel safe to be vulnerable and open. I was very shy with my voice and Giorgia was the very first person to be able to make me sing in front of another person. She takes you through the basics and explains very constructively how things work. I can recommend her to anyone who is wanting to discover their voice!

Joseph is a very knowledgeable and friendly teacher. He is organized and carefully plans for each lesson. My playing techniques improved a lot since I started working with him. He helped me better understand the music I play and think of beyond the technique and hitting the right notes. Thus, I became more expressive and musical player.

I’ve been learning from Nathan for some time now. And the difference it has made in my technique, musicality, and presentation has been tremendous! He is kind and caring teacher that always makes you feel comfortable at whatever level you go to him.

I found him while preparing for an audition for a musical theatre gig. He was quick to respond and punctual with setting up the lesson ASAP. We went through the material and his instruction helped me craft not only how to show my best self in my presentation but how to do it in a healthy, long term way. I’ve been back to him several times since. His knowledge of the voice and music is endless. He can make anyone be better and feel better about being a vocalist. I recommend him to everyone!

About Matt

Hello and welcome!

My name is Matt and my goal is to create an enjoyable, safe environment for you to learn as effectively as possible. Music is hard work but it is the most fun when you are improving and doing what you want! Having been through years of many types of music lessons, a master's program and worked in music publishing, I know that what is most important it is to have a mentor who is thoughtful and open to honest conversations about goals, needs, and interests--- someone who invests and goes the extra mile to help you succeed--- someone who inspires and challenges you. This focused, collaborative approach to education is rare but of utmost importance to my style.

I'm first and foremost a composer with interest in using these skills to encourage you to discover and achieve your goals in composition, theory, or beginn

ing piano: additionally I'm in the very beginning stages of developing these ideas into a mobile/web application to further encourage consistent learning habits outside of lessons.

I look forward to meeting with you!

Matthew is an excellent teacher with a ton of patience, as well. Coming into our first lesson, I had some beginner experience, but it had been a while since I actively played the piano. His lessons focus on assuring that the fundamentals are understood, then progressively building into more difficult pieces and even some theory. I would definitely recommend, as I am still taking lessons weekly!

About Zack

I am a professional composer for video games and film! I created the company, Moving Dimensions, in 2014 and have been producing and writing music for my own video games ever since.

I've been writing music ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil. After 19 years of perfecting my craft, I want to pass on the information I have learned. I double majored in music composition and music theory from the University of Louisville in 2012.

I began my teaching career right out of high school, I arranged music for, and instructed marching band percussion students. A few years later, I moved onto writing music for, teaching, and directing musical theater. All while giving private lessons in composition and piano on the side. I then spent 6 years in Los Angeles, writing for the big screen and getting my own video game production company off

the ground. I learned a tremendous amount working with film and musical directors out there, and when the company became self-sustaining, I moved close to family in PA.

Because of my enthusiasm for music, by excellent communication skills, and overwhelming amount of patience, I can teach you to become an expert on music composition, arranging, orchestration, music theory, playing things by ear, the piano, any percussion instrument, and even improvisation! I'm very fluent in all styles of music, from R&B and jazz to classical and contemporary. Reach out today and schedule a lesson! Let's play music!

About Zade

Hello, My name is Zade! Music has been a long-term pleasure of growth for the experience of a lifetime, living in an environment of melodious musical harmonies and participating in performing arts. I learned to play the violin, attended to the Suzuki string institute of Utah and pursued in the art of guitar not long after. Songwriting and music theory became an interest because I wanted to write my own pieces. I took part in the orchestra, choir, band ensemble as well as jazz with the Salt Lake Community College and have been teaching orchestra and band classes to elementary students for a couple of years with the Riverton Music partnership program. To this day I still play and teach just the same while studying in financing till I may get the proper education necessary, and that which I'm most interested in.

"I took lessons with Greg for a few months online and in person. Greg's a very skilled guitarist, and an amazing teacher who's understanding and patient. H
ighly recommend."

"Alex is very patient and able to adapt to her students. I studied with her for a year and also got to see other students work with her and she always had
a way of getting each student to accomplish their goals. I think when you look for a teacher, you really are looking for someone to teach you how to learn. So many teachers tell you something or tell you what to do but never help you develop a skillset. Alex is different in that she absolutely focuses on developing a fundamental process so that each student not only learns but knows how to learn. As a result, there is progress I can see immediately, of course, but also years down the road. If you're looking for a teacher seriously, consider someone who will make a lasting impact and will make you a better overall person— not just tell you to do something and move on. Alex is a teacher who, regardless if you pursue music, you will come out better because of her teachings. Highly recommend!"

"Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helpi
ng me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!"

3 Tips for Playing Loudly (and Beautifully) at the Piano

By Suzy S.

Piano dynamics indicate more than just playing softly or loudly -- there's actual technique involved that you'll need to learn! Here, New York, NY piano teacher Nadia B. shares her tips to keep in mind...   You're approaching a passage with the word 'fortissimo' written on the music, and you're building up to a musical climax. As you feel the power of the music, you want to play loudly, but when you do, it doesn't sound as beautiful as you imagined. Playing loudly at the piano is easy; …
