About Carrie
*****I don't have a current background check through take lessons but have an active ongoing background check through another employer ******

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 15 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn
a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught on an upright piano or acoustic/electric guitar. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !

Carrie was a great teacher for my son! It takes a special kind of person to teach my son and she did a great job at it. Unfortunately Carrie had to move and we are not able to take more lessons with her but we really enjoyed the time we had together.

About Thomas
Hi there! My name is Thomas Satalino, and I'm an instrumentalist, musician, photographer, painter, and writer. I have a passion for all things creative, and I teach people how to tap into their inherent creative ability, and find that artistic outlet they didn't even know they had!

About me:

I started playing piano at the age of 4, and have been playing musical instruments ever since. I have a passion for learning new things, and sharing my knowledge with others. Over the course of the past 5 years I have learned over 13 instruments, digital audio production, film/digital photography and darkroom processes, oil painting, cooking, and dog training. I was born and raised in Richmond Virginia where I taught for 2 years with "The Universal Room", an organization dedicated to teaching children with autism spectrum disorder the universal la
nguage of music. My approach to teaching Music is personalized, nontraditional, and heavily focused on creativity. I believe everyone is able to play an instrument, take a beautiful picture, and paint an inspirational painting. Although I can teach a student how to sight read, deep music theory is something I believe should be left to the academics. My desire is to open the heart of every person to their creative self, free of judgement, and to learn the universal language of art for art's sake.

About Alton
Hi everyone, I honestly love life and I know you do to. That being said, it isn't always easy on us. I'm a young man of 26 years of age and the amount of stress my adult life has placed on me has given me a newfound respect for all people of all walks of life. Luckily for me, I've always been designed to go through strife and then help others out of it. I joined the Army National Guard when I was in highschool, became a medic and, for the most part, enjoyed my time there learning how to help people. I got my degree while I was in the Guard and I also enjoyed that. When I was honorably discharged, however, I felt lost in life, having gained untreated illnesses in the army and also lacking internal drive or direction towards my potential future. That's when I started meditating and getting deep into herbalism. The meditation taught me all a
bout my strengths and weaknesses, almost forcing me to face them. I learned about the strong drive I had to inform others of my experiences from beyond and how greatly I wanted to help rid the world of whatever sicknesses I could. So that's what I plan on offering to any potential students here (and maybe some parkour 😁). A new and guaranteed fresh perspective on life that I can only lead an individual to, because true change comes from within and I know that together we can show each other a new truth and a new world.

About Aaron
Hi, I'm Aaron! I graduated from Anderson University where I majored in both English Literature and Theatre. I received high marks in both, and I'm completely confident that I can help you reach your goals.

I have spent my entire life studying both theatre and English. I also know quite a bit about psychology and philosophy. I'm knowledgeable about a large amount of literature and have been heavily trained in theatre for four years. Spending time studying these topics has helped me understand theatrical as well as literary works when it comes to characters, themes, symbols, style, etc.

In the theatre realm, I'm knowledgeable and trained in monologue coaching, script analyzation, zero base acting, improvisation, the Stanislavsky method, and a bit of Meisner. I'm comfortable with teaching beginning to intermediately skilled actor
s.

When it comes to writing, I can definitely help you edit your essays, improve your style, and help you understand grammatical concepts.

I'm a professional writer for 25YL, a site that analyzes film as well as television shows. I very much enjoy it. It doesn't pay, but I get to put my name out there with my fingers crossed.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you in English and Theatre soon!

Aaron is very knowledgeable about literature and can find themes and plot lines very easily. He is also able to compare similar ideas with different authors and philosophers. I'd recommend him for a job in English.

Hi, my name is Bethany!
I have been tutoring students since I was just a young student myself. Everyone learns differently so I like to find easy ways for each individual student to learn and retain the material from each lesson. Although Mathematics is my main subject that I teach in, I have also tutored students in Science, English, and History. I look forward to working with you in the near future!
