I have been teaching for the past 6 years, and love working with all different students. My former students have been selected to be in the Colorado All-State Honor Band and have been accepted to their top choice colleges for music performance. In 2016, I attended the Aspen Summer Music Festival, where I learned a great deal about clarinet and teaching. My specialty is pinpointing bad habits and working towards effortless, high-quality sound and technique.

About Josh

I am an avid clarinetist, energetic performer and enthusiastic teacher. My dream career is to be a soloist like Martin Frost, to play in an orchestra, or compose and perform my music. My passion for teaching is similar to my passion for performing, and I have experience teaching privately since 20

Ezra’s mission as a teacher is to foster excellence, nurture talent, and help develop musical literacy at all levels of experience. He has taught music theory and appreciation at Indiana University and Washtenaw Community College, and piano to students of all ages since 2009.

Ezra’s piano students have consistently received Superior and Excellent ratings at State and local music competitions including: MMTA Student Achievement Testing, Sonata/Sonatina Festival, the GVSU 20th & 21st Century Music Festival, and the NFMC Gold Cup Program.

Believing that a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of Western music is beneficial for all musicians, Ezra structures his lessons to include a mixture of performance, technique, sight-reading, and musicianship skills.

Ezra has the following tools available to use during lessons: beautiful brand new Kawai K-15 piano, artist bench, extensive library of piano sheet music.

Robin
Ezra has been an excellent instructor for my daughter over the past few years. She has grown from a fledgling beginner to a confident young player, gaining skill and confidence as well as an appreciation for music. Ezra balances encouragement with high expectations that help her to improve. I would highly recommend lessons with Ezra to anyone looking to gain proficiency and joy in playing the piano!
Doreen
Ezra has challenged my 13-year-old son over the last 2 years! We are so pleased with the progress our son has made with a variety of piano pieces - classical as well as "popular." He has kept our son actively playing and progressing impressively with his piano skills! He communicates with parents frequently, and he connects and understands how to tap into a student's potential! We have been impressed with his teachings! Highly recommend him!
Linda
Our son Henry (8) has taken piano lessons from Ezra for the last few years. During that time, he has progressed from playing basic notes to playing real music and developing an appreciation for piano. Ezra is the perfect mix of firm & fun + encouraging & educational. His love of music and commitment to sharing his knowledge with others is apparent. Henry is lucky to have him as a teacher.

I've had over 8 years of experience teaching people of all ages in Canada and here in the United States, I have become an expert at being punctual and having patience towards each person's way of learning. I have developed different strategies and problem solving in the event of a conflict, and to always have a positive outlook on a situation while encouraging the students to reach and achieve their goals. During our time together I would help you with proper breathing technique and vocal placement! We would explore all different genres of music to help broaden your voice stylistically.

Beyond my teaching experience, I believe I am a good fit for you because I would bring enthusiasm and a great dynamic energy to your team, along with great communication skills that I’ve garnered from my previous jobs.

Training includes: Royal Conservatory of Music Grades 1-8, Piano Grade 6, Music Theory Grades 1 and 2 with First Class Honours and Distinction.

There is so much more to singing than just a great voice. The performance goes hand in hand and is something that myself as a performer, place a lot of emphasis on for those of you that are going out there and auditioning for musicals, plays, schools, bands etc.

You must always connect with the song and the story line. How do you relate?

These are all topics I go through with students that are looking for more of that edge in their overall singing experience.

We discuss character, character choices, emotion, presence, movement, microphone technique, stand out parts in the music and much more.

It is very important you can relate to the song in some way. It will not be the same as the person who wrote it, but you can still find something that will help you relate. You chose the song for a reason, even if it was for the melody, what is it about that melody you like? what is it about the guitar line, or piano line you like? etc. These and much more are topics I go through in ...

I love Francisca’s patience, openness and expertise with vocals and playing the keys. I enjoyed our lively and very down to earth session and learning about breath and vocal health. She gave me tips since I lived in a Nevada which is a very dry place and ways I could improve my vocals in that climate.
I recommend anyone who is looking for a straightforward approach to technique to get lessons from Francisca! She is amazing!
Stacey
What a wonderful experience it was to work with this instructor. Her own experiences and talent far surpasses anything I had expected to experience in an online session.
She has an ability to help me find my voice and I am truly grateful to work with someone with her patience and ability to adapt to my level of learning. She is wonderful for any age group and extremely accommodating to make time for lessons.
I would recommend everyone to give her a try and would guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Jenny
I’ve had such a great time doing virtual lessons with Francisca! It is always so scary and nerve-racking to start with a new instructor, but I immediately felt at ease. Her energy is welcoming and calming, and What I admire most is that she can feel when I’m not emotionally in the song but instead in my head. Thank you for pushing me to break through these vocal cord cobwebs and get these pipes polished!

"Welcoming personality makes learning fun

Mary has done a great job with my son. She made my son feel comfortable enough at his first lesson that he kicked me out! On his second lesson he managed to not only forget his sheet music, but his instrument too! Mary still managed to teach him things and by the time I got back with the Sax he was fully engaged in learning some things she wrote on paper. My son has enjoyed his lessons and I see him keeping more interest than with just his school lessons alone. He is DEFINITELY learning and having fun doing it."
