About James
Hello everyone! Please have a look around my profile and feel free to contact me. I have taught privately since 2009 and joined takelessons.com in 2014.

I strongly feel each student needs lesson goals tailored to what he or she wants to take away from music. Getting ready for a college performance degree, making it to state solo contest, surviving band music, or simply discovering the huge scope of music available to us these days are each worthy goals, but require different preparation. I will work with you to figure out where your interests lie and focus on those, first and foremost!

My education includes bachelor's and master's degrees in trumpet performance from Lawrence University and UW-Milwaukee, respectively. In addition to my private studio, I maintain an active teaching schedule with the Fairfield Jr/Sr High School marchin
g band and Oregon Crusaders drum and bugle corps, as well as freelancing throughout Michiana.

Thanks for your time, and happy practicing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I can provide: music stand, method books during lessons, recording equipment for lessons, tuner, metronome

Students should provide: instrument/mouthpiece, any other music they would like to play

*** Specialties ***
I have spent most of my playing time on classical (orchestral, chamber, and solo music), but also welcome students interested in jazz up to an intermediate level, especially if they have an interest in playing lead trumpet.

About Zach
As a teaching artist, my goal is to reinforce a healthy structure to your voice while expanding your capacities as an actor and performer by letting the complete singing actor emerge. I wish for my work in the studio to be accessible even when you are practicing on your own. I hope to empower each student to become self-sufficient on a personal level, understanding that each individual grows from different methods to find that perfect balance of artistic and technical instruction.

I am fresh off of the Celebrity Summit Cruise Ship performing as a lead vocalist in their production shows. Previously I have performed in the Anything Goes National Tour as the quartet tenor and a primary dancer. Before this, I had appeared in shows at Pittsburgh's prestigious theatre, The Pittsburgh CLO, most recently performing in their production of The
Wedding Singer and previously as The Production Tenor in Singin’ in the Rain and Garvin in Footloose. Other theatre credits include multiple shows at Music Theatre of Wichita, West Virginia Public Theatre and The Connecticut Repertory Theatre, all of which have taught me what it takes to become a successful musical theatre performer in this competitive era.

I love teaching all students, but in particular high school students who are aspiring to attend college as a musical theatre major, non-theatre majors who are new to singing and want a stronger technical background, or actors who are new to the musical theatre scene and are looking to take their talent to the next level. I have a strong knowledge of repertoire ranging from contemporary musical theatre to golden age to opera/operetta. I have performed in musicals, operettas, plays, and have started my own collegiate a cappella group, The Statesmen. At Penn State, I was trained to not only teach musical theatre repertoire, but to include art songs and arias as well which have their own tool in a student's growth and versatility.

Most importantly, I like to have fun in the studio. I have a very open and goofy personality and want you to feel free to be goofy as well. Dare to fail. You may learn more from your voice cracking then you might from singing a beautiful note.

About Tamari
Hi, there! My name is Tamar; I'm called Tamari, informally, and Tamara for the stage, and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching private lessons for many, many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-
- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

My son Jean-David, who was then 10 years old, took lessons with Anna during six months (the duration of our stay in South Bend) and he had much pleasure to follow these lessons and practise the piano every day. Anna made him play various styles of music and she corrected him well. Even if Jean-David knew only a few words in English (we are Swiss and he was used to speak French), he could understand what she explained. Anna had expactations, but she was also encouraging and friendly. I recommend her warmly.

I'm learning a musical instrument for the first time ever, at the young age of 43! I love working with Anna, she has made this a wonderful experience for me. Very informative, learning to read music and positioning my hands correctly. I have been taking lessons with Anna for 3.5 months now, she gives me just enough push out of my comfort zone to expand my piano learning.

About Josue
Hi, there! My name is Josue and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2004 and have loved helping my students accomplish self-expression, accomplish performance goals, and breaking through previous limitations. I went to Indiana University Jacob's School of Music and earned a Master's degree in Music in 2012. I'm a people's person and a caring person and my teaching style is patient, selfless, and informative. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

How will our lessons work? I customize them completely around what you want to get from them. Some students are focusing on the Classical genre meanwhile others want to learn how to improvise and play commercial music. Whatever artistic direction you want to focus on I can guide you.

Studying together you will benefit by developing a warm, deep and
robust sound through exercises such as long tones, tongueless starts, overtones and mouthpiece exercises. We will also focus on instrumental technique by utilizing technical material found in etudes, arpeggios, patterns, scales, solos and many other sources. Reading music is key to performing on the saxophone so we will address sight reading and answer any questions you may have toward rhythm, time signature, rests and note duration. Articulation and time-feel is of the utmost importance when expressing yourself through the saxophone and we will grow from listening to and analyzing the phrasing of world class musicians. You will familiarize yourself with time feel through utilizing the metronome while playing and learning how to internalize it.

Through fun work and self-discipline you will feel so proud of yourself that you have learned how to communicate and speak your emotions through your saxophone as if it were your own voice. I can't wait to help you feel that gratification of accomplishment, see you on the other side in the classroom!

About Gary
I instill in my students a love for music and for their violin. For beginners I start by getting them comfortable holding their violin. Then they learn basic right and left hand movements concentrating on one hand at a time at first in order to play some simple songs. After that I introduce easy note reading skills always keeping in mind the student's progress.

As my students progress there will be many new techniques to learn in the songs they play. I verbally explain each technique, demonstrate it on my violin, and "send them home" with exercises specifically tailored to help make their playing even more enjoyable. I also send them or their parents an email each week with all their assignments. They really appreciate that.

She played in the Rogue Valley Youth Orchestra and Symphony and one year in the orchestra at her college. I would definitely recommend Gary as a teacher.

About Andy
I am an educator, composer, and performer based in Cincinnati, OH. I have studied piano for 25 years with masters and doctoral degrees in piano and composition from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

Piano students should expect progress in technique, reading, aural skills, and improv/composition. I enjoy teaching a variety of ages and levels from beginners to those that want to major in instrumental performance. I draw out each student's natural creativity, motivation, and strengths so that they develop into a unique and independent musician. The ultimate goal is to teach myself out of a job.

As a composer, I have been commissioned to write pieces for pre-college students across the country, concert pianists, Cincinnati Public Radio, and regional piano competitions. I am also the director of the Creative Co
mmissions project that pairs creative professionals with pre-college music students to collaborate on creating unique and accessible new works.

About Victor
I am a professional composer, pianist, songwriter, and author. I graduated from The National Conservatory with a PH of Music Composition.

Piano students can learn any song they like, but I follow the syllabus from the California Music Conservatory, which makes the learning here, very professional. I can help any student to learn at their own pace, with confidence.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 20 years, and also I can teach modern music. The system I use is unique, organized and has everything you will ever need to learn, Chords, Scales, Songs, Studies and more.

I have written music for bands, solo singers, soundtracks for movies and more, I have my own website where you can find all my compositions songnes.com. My books can be found in any music store and on line just
type Victor M Barba books in Google and you will see them.

My personal passion is film music but I believe you can learn any style you want using the method of the Conservatory. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to have fun while learning to play the Piano!
