Wonderful!

Samantha D. is wonderful. My kids play so well for only 1 year'sworth of lessons. I would highly recommend her to anyone! I am blownaway by the music that comes out of the Piano from a 7 and 11 year old.My 11 year old signed up for her first music competition at school. Ifyou told me one year ago I would have girls playing a piano, I would notbelieve you. I truly thought they would quit after a couple of months.Not the case. They are musically talented and still love it. Thanks toSamantha D! They are now thriving in the in-school music program.Thank you, TakeLessons, for filtering out the best teachers. When achild has a small window of interest, you have to grab it the rightway...the wrong teacher would not have given me these results.

Highly Recommend her!

My daughters (10, & 6) have only had three lessons with Samantha! They love it. Her nature is kind and welcoming. She can tell how much they can handle so doesn't overwhelm them with too much theory or pieces to play. She strikes a nice balance. My 10 year old started composing her own song when she became bord with the beginner book! Samantha has added to this excitement and changed her teaching style to match my daughters learning style. My daughter was beaming! Samantha has taught her how to take the next pieces of theory and add it to her song. She also ordered music my daughter enjoys like Selena Gomez. My 6 year old is excited every week and doesn't want to be late. My husband and I thought this would be just another thing to start and quit. So far they are going strong!

Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!
John
Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.

Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

Private Music Performance Teacher

Hello and welcome to my studio!

***I AM vaccinated!

I have performed and taught professionally over the past decade in a variety of scenarios ranging from Classical Concerts, to Wedding Band performances, to live Ska/Hip-Hop gigs all along the East Coast. The biggest thing I have learned is that performing is a skill in itself, and everyone can acquire this unique ability!

As a member of my studio, our first lesson will involve going over what your goals are in music performance. Do you have a big performance at the end of the school year? Do you play alot of gigs and find yourself getting nervous? Do you finally want to play that solo with confidence and win the audience? Whatever it may be, I will give some helpful starters to move toward your goals. In fact, I have a unique process for building up confidence in an engaging way.

Learn to own the stage, whether it's a classical recital, or a rock show at the club.

About Kris

As a life-long student of music I know how overwhelming the subject can be. In my classical piano roots no one taught me how music really worked or how to write. After ten years of study I became highly proficient at reading the notes on the page and moving my fingers to play them, but I hit a wall

I feel so lucky to have discovered Kris on TakeLessons. Every lesson begins with him checking in on my progress in a variety of different areas and every lesson ends with notes of our session and different areas for me to practice before our next session. There's always a great mix of homework types that Kris lets you explore in a way that is organic and fun for how you want to learn. He will work with YOU to help find the lessons that inspire you to keep practicing and staying engaged. We also spend a decent amount of time on music theory and composition, so I feel like I'm actually learning the instrument and not just following patterns. Lastly, Kris has a high level of empathy and is great at encouraging his students. He always makes me feel good about the progress I'm making while still challenging me to be better. I can't recommend Kris enough.
Hershey
Kris is great .. always positive and upbeat. Clearly is masterful at understanding music theory and its applications to the piano. Working at a rapid pace and after just 3 lessons, I feel like I understand the piano. I would say that my understanding of some music theory (as a guitarist) helps me keep up with Kris, but he is a great listener and pauses when necessary.
Nicole
Amazing instructor. I've come so far from working with him.

"This teacher works to bring out the possible best in a person. She provides constructive criticism when needed but also makes you feel you are learning and progressing under her instructions. She took a shy, quiet person and turned him into someone who is learning that it can be fun to perform for live audiences and how good it feels to express a talent you always wanted to share with others but were not sure you had it in you to do so. I greatly love and respect this teacher."

"Karen’s recitals, showcasing 6 to 12 students each time, always thrill
me. Men, women, boys, & girls of all ages and various degrees of
achievement stand before their audience with confidence. They have
practiced, not only the pieces which they play, but showmanship, not
pushy or cocky, but polite and welcoming. They make eye contact and
smile; some invite the crowd to sing along on the choruses. Even the
1st year students exude confidence.

The crowd returns those smiles, along with cheers and clapping. One
can tell that Karen has kindly and persistently shown and encouraged
each student. If any show fear, she does not chide; she accompanies
them in the performance and nods approval as they continue. I watch
that fear subside. They are then met with handshakes and pats on the
back. Next time, they will be even more eager to share the pieces that
they worked on and not expect criticism.

Karen picks a theme and arranges guitar, piano, and voice selections,
intermingled into a program that leaves a person well entertained and
planning to come back next time. I am not related to any of the
participants and have no obligation to be at the recitals. I love the
music, the talent, and the progress that I see and hear. You, too,
will be glad you came."

"Eric B. was the music instructor for both my children at the middle and high school they attended. Additionally, I taught with Eric for seven years.

My children received excellent music instruction in both trombone and flute. I was pleased with the rigor of the practice that was expected from Eric, which enabled dramatic growth in their musical ability. I was also pleased that they were both able to read music due to the instruction they were given under Eric's tutelage.

As I said earlier, I have worked with Eric as a colleague. I found him to be highly organized, student centered with regard to growth and performance, and a man of high character.

Eric created a Jazz band curriculum at the school corporation we taught at, where he developed several Jazz sections that would perform regularly in the community. Eric would invite notable guest musicians to work with the students and participate with them in these performances.

I would recommend Eric, without reservations, to anyone who desires a quality music instructor."
