Experienced teacher of 20+ years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

For beginners, I highly recommend starting with a 30-minute lesson. Intermediate and advanced should consider 45-minute lessons. 60-min lessons are available but are only recommended on a case-by-case basis. Please take into consideration your student's current skill level when deciding on the lesson length.

I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

I was very nervous ahead of time but Brenda far exceeded my expectations! She is a very kind soul and made me feel comfortable. She is adapting the material to how I perceive and learn which feels extremely good! I wish more people in the world taught the way she teaches :)

Brenda is an excellent teacher and my daughter has been playing the piano beautifully. Brenda takes the time with Victoria to explain the music and make sure she understands before moving to another section.
I'm sure any child would benefit from her teaching skills

Sincerely,

"After 3 lessons with Kimberly and listening intently to everything she teaches and spending time on my own with what I have learned so far, the band I am in has noticed a marked improvement in my vocal control and better use of head voice techniques. A great compliment from the pros in the band who have been playing for decades and just took me in last summer. Thanks to her love of music and exceptional teaching skills, I owe this all to Kimberly. I have a long wa to go but I feel more confident after every lesson. Thanks Kim from me and our band members!!"

"Learning Violin has been my passion whole life and I found the best teacher who could help me learn it perfect and beautiful. Every lesson with Jill is fun and enlightening at the same time. She can understand my negatives so well and focus on them while also teaching me to move forward correctly. She understands the level we are at and adjusts each lesson accordingly which is very helpful for a beginner. Its been a year I've started learning violin with Jill and it has been a great year so far. She is the best."

"My daughter has been learning with Stephanie for around 8 sessions now and I see a vast development in her voice. She is able to recognize and hit the notes at the right pitch. It's a thirty minute class and it's amazing how much Stephanie is able to cover in that much time. Practice is key and she has homework assignments for her students from day one. Her dedication and love for teaching is obvious in her consistency in every class. It's the perfect class to consider during the summer holidays for kids and grown ups alike."

I have been a teacher for 15 years. I know a good teacher when I meet one. Michelle is without question an excellent teacher. She teaches. She knows her students. She respects their individuality. She brings the lesson to their level. My 10 year old loves to sing a lot more now than when she started 3 months ago. And above all, not only is Michelle an excellent teacher; she is an excellent person. A person of great character. We are very fortunate and honored to have her as a teacher."

What is Rosin, and How Do I Use It?

For beginner violinists, that mysterious lump of tree sap in your instrument case might seem a little strange.  But that sticky substance - rosin - is actually essential to creating a beautiful, even tone. Particularly if you've just purchased a new violin bow, it's important to learn how to apply rosin properly before you begin playing your violin.  The rosin makes the hairs on the bow "sticky," allowing them to grip the string and produce a good tone. First, when applying the rosin, ma …
