For my first lesson, I found Catherine to be personable, encouraging, and highly skilled. She listened to my goals, assessed my present ability (I had tried to teach myself piano. I failed.) and worked through some exercises with me to improve my skills. I found the lesson challenging but not overwhelming. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with her.

so much fun!

This teacher has a great time with her students as they learn keyboards, piano, theory, singing and basic skills on percussion and woodwind instruments. She can show beginning guitarists the chords and strums, too. We perform with the teacher at different places for youth group events, recitals, even musical theater shows. I hope I keep learning music the rest of my life.

On electric guitar I enjoy teaching rock n roll. Anything from soft rock to Metal. Teaching electric guitar is my favorite instrument because I resonate the most with it. I can teach theory, ear training, scales, chords and how to pull it all together to make your own music. Let me know if you have a specific style or any questions.

FACT: There is no such thing as a terrible singer. Only a singer who hasn't gotten the proper training. Singing is a skill like anything else. And while some people may be more naturally inclined to carry a tune more effortlessly than others, the reality is that EVERYONE CAN SING! Including YOU. And I want to be the person to help you do that.

I have been a musician my entire life, and I have taught all ages and levels for thirty years. I emphasize efficiency in practice and learning and will help you manage your practice time for maximum productivity. I have a positive and nurturing approach while maintaining a high standard for development and progress. My students appreciate the way I balance technical and musical portions of lessons and they make quick and easy progress.

About Becki

Becki has taught violin to my nieces and nephew for many years and they are all exceptional musicians as a result. While a beginning adult student, I got a few words of advice about my playing from Becki at an informal musical event which we both attended. I was smitten. The instruction she shared was exquisite! I immediately understood what a great teacher is. When I said that I wished that I lived closer so that I too could study with her, she responded, "We could do it over Skype!" And so we do. I've been studying Suzuki violin with her since. I'm so grateful that the technology is available to us to make this possible.

"Dan is the real deal, if your interest lies in learning 'music.' I set out to learn theory after years of guessing around the fretboard, and Dan has found a way to make it look understandable, digestible and orderly. It's a language. Dare I say fun? It IS, when you start to understand it the way he teaches it! If you want to "shred Wylde riffs in 4 weeks or less," this isn't for you. If you want to learn music and get much better at your instrument (guitar in my case), this guy is definitely for you. He has the background, formal education, experience and passion to get you there, if you can put the effort."

"Jessica is wonderful! I began studying the cello as a quite older student - in my 50s - and have had a few teachers over these last 15 years. When teaching an adult student, the teacher has to understand that our lives, schedules and demands are quite different that those of a young person. Jessica's patience, persistence and genuine good humor in the face of my busy life is beyond admirable. Even though I am quite challenged in finding practice time, she "puts up" with me and my showing up to lessons with minimal preparation. I've accepted that I'm never going to be the great cellist of my dreams, but Jessica is facilitating my learning to enjoy playing this wonderful instrument that I've had a deep love affair with for many years. I can't thank her enough."

"My daughter is 14yr old and is passionate about music. Finding Mrs. Ignatov has been a blessing. In the past year and a half, my daughter's technique (bowing, phrasing, intonation) has improved vastly under her instruction.
She cares about her students and wants them to achieve their goals/dreams. My daughter made the CYSO's Philharmonic Orchestra in her first year of auditioning, all thanks to the guidance of Mrs. Ignatov and her attentiveness to details!
If you or your child love music and wish to achieve your full potential, Mrs. Ignatov will help you get there."
