Severin D.

Book Now

Students can expect to develop strong foundational skills in areas of tone, finger technique, articulation, musical expression, and physiological aspects of playing, which they will then learn to apply in etudes and repertoire. A student's repertoire will be determined both by student input and teacher recommendation in order to maximize both student enjoyment and musical development. In each lesson, students can expect fun and quirky analogies as well as possible interruptions by a cat.

Singing can be lots of fun, but the study of voice can seem obscure and even mystical to the uninformed. Some pieces of the puzzle are completely beyond our conscious control (i.e. the larynx), some are accessed indirectly (i.e. the breath), and others are readily available and right in front of us, but we don't think to target these (i.e. our stance). My lessons link student goals with positive outcomes by developing understanding and application of healthy vocal habits, production, and presentation of repertoire that fits and flatters the voice.

About Matt

I am a professional singer who has proficiencies in piano, organ, choral directing, musical analysis, and ear training/playing by ear. I currently teach both high school and college students.

Was very nice, thank you
Serge C.
Very friendly and knowledgeable of his subjects. He is a total professional.
Megan K.
Just starting lessons with Matt, but he seems very to have great knowledge about how to teach students to grow in their vocal skills. He is very enthusiastic and positive, but honest in his assessment of skills which is important to vocalists who truly WANT to improve their skills. The initial lesson experiences have been really beneficial. Looking forward to continuing lessons with Matt!

I have experience teaching students of all ages, beginner through advanced. My lessons are engaging and productive - some would even say they had fun! Working together, we can improve your clarinet playing week by week. I am flexible in repertoire, meaning that if a student has pieces he or she wishes to play, we will make it a goal to achieve those pieces so that playing the clarinet is an enjoyable experience for each student.

About Jordyn

I am a clarinetist currently pursuing my bachelor's degree in Clarinet Performance from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. A student taking lessons from me should expect to improve their fundamental clarinet technique each week with scales, arpeggios, and technique exercises, depending on

I love teaching to students of all ages and backgrounds. I use fun forms of individualism and effective methods of making learning piano fun. I love seeing a student effectively learn piano through lessons and practicing and recitals. I love to reward the student for their hard work by using rewards and certificates. I also like to record their hard work with piano practice.

Melissa is a great teacher for kids starting out in piano.
Thu T.
Though this is only the first piano teacher we've ever worked with, Melissa has set a very high bar. Her passion for music really shines through during her lessons. She adapts her lesson plans to my 7 year old daughter and moving at a pace that keeps her engaged. She even helps her learn some songs outside the lessons that my daughter started learning on her own! If there are any scheduling conflicts, she keeps the line of communication open and we are always able to figure it out together. We couldn't be happier. If you read through her positive reviews...they're all true! It's only been a month, but we look forward to having her around for a long time.
Vi T.
We love her passion for music and teaching. She came well prepare. Melissa started my daughter off on a lesson that was fun and challenging. We are excited for the next one!

Sergio was very knowledgeable and picked up on my skill level right away and gave me some great background info and challenging exercises to work on to improve before my next lesson. He made everything super comfortable and his studio was the perfect place for a lesson.
