About Arnell
I've always loved to sing from my earliest remembrance along with a love for the piano and a desire to play. I attended Academy of Our Lady - High School where I took four years of piano as well as vocal instruction. I performed with a group called The Madrigals as a 'high soprano' during those years. I further attended Wheaton College, attained a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music. I was educated musically through Wheaton's Conservatory of Music. I studied piano, voice, theory, music history, music appreciation,and sight singing to name a few. I auditioned, performed, and traveled with the Women's Glee Club.
Since then, I served as the worship leader in church setting. I was responsible for music selection, accompaniment, and vocal coaching for our worship team. I've also worked as a facilitator in an after school program.
There, I worked with students on an individual as well as group basis. I led a youth choir that traveled and performed for local nursing home residents. I also taught music appreciation and a fitness/movement class incorporating various genres of music.
Throughout the years I've had may opportunities to work with students one-on-one in piano and vocal instruction and performance. Overall, I am very passionate about music. Whether its listening, singing, playing or helping someone develop or grow in their talent, I simply love it!
Now, I'd be honored to work with you. I am comfortable working with beginners to intermediate in both piano and voice, ages 5 and up. As partners, this is a dual effort. I will do my best to find and utilize the most effective ways/methods to coach and assist you in reaching your piano or vocal goals. I will expect you to give your best effort consistently to get there one step at a time.

*** Lesson Details ***
When it comes to lessons, I am a pleasant, approachable person. I enjoy laughter and believe it is a healthy response even when things are difficult.

In piano, I can help you learn the basics of playing such as note recognition, scales, chord formation, ear development and form a foundation that you can build upon progressively. In voice, I can help you develop good breathing, posture, tone, diction and expression. I am excited to work with whatever singing style that interests you most. Opera is my only exception at this point.
I offer training in classical music to use as a foundation for any other genre of music that interests you.

In general, I prefer to use well-balanced methods that incorporate theory along with the mechanics of learning. I believe in using tools, games,or aids that make learning fun, especially for the young beginner. The method used will depend upon the goals and needs of the student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room with a piano and seating. No pets. Parking in driveway or on street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not travel with any equipment - except books/curriculum as needed.
I expect my student to provide a lesson notebook, and equipment, piano, microphone, amplifier as required.

*** Specialties ***
Genres - Classical, Contemporary Christian

Wow! What an experience.

Arnell is a brilliant instructor.she is motivating, exciting, fun,. creative and very informative.she is a miracle worker. Arnell has done wonders with our 3 children.before they started the piano and singing classes with Arnell, my husband and I realized that it would be very difficult and very challenging for our 8 year old son to learn the piano, seeing that he was diagnosed with a learning disability. to our amazement we were very pleased to see our child, our children reading musical notes and playing the piano fluently in such a very short time,it brought tears to our eyes. Yes my family is very blessed to have Arnell as a piano and singing instructor.

My 6 year old son has been taking piano with Dora for just 6 months, but has done amazingly well under her teaching. Dora is fantastic with kids, and she has such a warm, friendly nature that my son always looks forward to his lessons. A number of my neighbors send their kids to Dora for voice and piano, and have nothing but wonderful things to say. I plan to send my younger child to Dora when she's older.

Dora is an amazing teacher- she is knowledgeable and patient. My 6 year old daughter looks forward to her lesson each week and is begging to take singing with her as well. I only wish she was my teacher growing up! I am tempted to start lessons again! I have recommended her to several friends who are also very pleased with her teaching abilities.

About Ricardo
 My name is Ricardo. I am a skilled Classically trained pianist.  I hold a Piano Performing/Teaching Diploma from Vicente Emilio Sojo Conservatory of Music in Venezuela, a Bachelor degree in Music Education with emphasis in Piano from Adventist University of Colombia, and a Master of Arts in Music with a concentration in Piano and Choral conducting from West Texas A & M University. I have over 26 years of experience teaching piano students with skill levels that range from beginner to advanced.  I have also instructed major and non-major piano students at the College level.  I have taught piano lessons to children, teenagers, adults and elderly people.  I have also had experience developing and implementing piano curriculum. I have performed at numerous recitals, concerts, and church services throughout the years.  It has always been my g
oal to commit to my students and to create the best possible learning environment according to their needs, goals, and backgrounds.  I carefully select repertoire and technical exercises that suit the needs of my students. I am comfortable with teaching conventional classical repertoire, hymns and praise, and popular repertoire including Pop and jazz. I teach my students solid technique, interpretative and sight-reading skills, and music theory foundations. I seek to instill the love and appreciation of music in my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Besides studying and learning repertoire according to their level, my beginner students receive training in music theory, sight-reading, and technique.My intermediate and advanced students will focus on repertoire, sight-reading and techniqueI teach all of my students how to maximize their practice time.  I teach them methods and strategies on how to approach challenging spots. I teach my students to analyze the music and find patterns that will facilitate the learning of the repertoire and increase their confidence and motivation. After 6 months of taking lessons regularly and practicing consistently, a beginner student  should be able to play simple pieces using notes within the staffs, including whole-, half-, quarter-,and eighth-notes. Students will have a good hand posture, good finger coordination, and a basic understanding of dynamics.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need an electronic piano or an acoustic piano

*** Specialties ***
I have used mostly Alfred's methods for the first couple of years. After that i used a combination of different resources for technique, repertoire, and theory. It has always been my goal to commit to my students and to create the best possible learning environment according to their needs, goals, and backgrounds. I carefully select repertoire and technical exercises that suit the needs of my students. I am comfortable with teaching both conventional classical and popular repertoire. In my lessons, I teach useful keyboard skills such as proper technique, sight-reading, and accompanying.

Very first lesson with Lipeng and I enjoyed it so very much. Lipeng encourages to listen to the music and then accentuate the notes to make it music, not to simply play them.

About Blake
Hi there! My Name is Blake C. II, I am 18 years old and I have been teaching guitar with my father, Blake Sr. of Blake C. Music, since 2012. Through these last few years working with my father, I have had the opportunity to teach people of all ages; children all the way up to adults who have been playing longer than I have been alive!

I have had the great fortune of having a dad who has been playing for over 30 years in all genres: rock, blues, classical, country, etc. My dad has taught me not only how to play guitar, but how to teach it to others in a way that makes sense; a way that makes learning guitar fun.

One major thing I have taken away from working, learning, and teaching with my dad is that technique is key! We do not teach to keep you coming back for years and years, we teach you how to ultimately learn by yourself usin
g the skills we have taught you.

Without practical application of the skills we teach, lessons would be a bore. So, many times we find songs that exemplify the skill we are working on. This makes the learning process fun and educational at the same time!
