Great first day!
Jim
I recently started taking lessons with Kenny to try to learn some basic lead guitar in a one on one setting. I've been very impressed with his preparation, taking the time to tailor the lesson to my level of play and the music I am interested in playing. He also is very encouraging and is interested in my learning and progress, even going beyond the one hour lesson time to ensure that I have the tools necessary to continue to work at home.

I am a believer that a student-teacher relationship should be a positive and honest one. I am not here to sit and brood in judgement. I am here to help you (the student) help yourself open your ears to the wide array of sounds the viola has to offer. I am heavily technique-based and work extensively to address issues in the left hand and right (bow) hand so we can work together for you to achieve the best sound possible.

About Samantha

I am a passionate believer that musical talent is not innate or inherent. It is grown through hard-work, self-discipline, proper guidance from caring teachers. As a private teacher, I believe in the potential of all my students to achieve their goals. Maintaining a positive and honest relationship

Want to get past playing those favorite memorized tunes such as chopsticks, Fur Elise, or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star? Then, why not supplement your instrumental study with in-depth music theory that will catapult you into applying yourself beyond musician to potential songwriter or even teacher? I am willing to adapt the lessons learned to fit your situation, whether it is to enhance vocal or instrumental perfection, or simply to learn for purposes of becoming a music composer. Topics covered: page reading, perfecting keyboard, rhythm notation, key and time signature, varied scales, chords, and much more.

Even if you've never touched Ableton before, I will get you creating right away :) As a self-produced synth-pop artist under the moniker mini bear, I have experience teaching at both beginner and advanced levels. Having taught one-on-one in various environments, including at Apple, I have the ability to translate seemingly difficult concepts into relatable information. I have a strong background in music theory, songwriting, and synthesis, and I will show you how you can best use Ableton as a creative tool to reach your artistic potential.

About Lauren

As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech. As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the mon

Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.

She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.
Corey
Lauren is a fantastic teacher, patient and thorough in her technique. I learned so much from taking lessons with her!
Ihui - Polartropica
Lauren's expertise and creativity really shines through during the lessons!! It's the perfect mix of a thorough, methodical lesson but also fun and extremely engaging, with room for our individual visions and artistry to shine through on Ableton. I can't recommend her enough, She's the best out there!!!

I teach all levels of violin. For the lower levels, I use the repertoire from the Suzuki books, but I don't use the actual method. I teach with a more traditional approach. After the student improves in skill, I move them into the traditional scale and etude books along with repertoire that pertains to the level of playing. My number one requirement for my students is scales and etudes. This is the basis of how to play your instrument well. I try to instill good habits in my students and proper technique to present a clean and full sound. I have my students analyze what it is they are playing instead of just playing the notes. With that, I encourage them to LISTEN to the music they are playing. A musician needs to hear the many complexities and pull the emotion out to the listener and to themselves.
