Ruth F.

Princeton, NJ

About Ruth

I have played piano since I was six years old, when my parents enrolled me in my first music classes. I continued my music education while going to elementary, middle, and high school. Ultimately, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Music from Butler University, located in Indianapolis, Indiana

*** Lesson Details ***
Music has been one of my greatest passions since I was a little girl, and teaching it is my favorite way to share my love of music. I teach students of all ages and skill levels from early beginners to experienced piano players who want to bring their performance to a higher le
vel.

I emphasize piano technique, musicianship, performance skills and music history. But I also use piano lessons to help my students develop life skills, such as concentration, focus, poise and discipline. I love to see my students to build confidence and self-esteem from playing beautiful music.

Jerry Y.

Cranbury, NJ

About Jerry

I've been playing and loving music for well more than half a century, now. I got started in second grade when my grandpa brought home a little violin one day, and I've been at it ever since. I was fortunate to take lessons for more than ten years with Carita Page, a teacher who was very warm, encouraging, and caring. I do my best to pass that on to my students in addition to the technique of playing and the theory of music, fascinating as those are.

I feel that playing in groups is very valuable experience for students and gives you a side of music that private lessons alone cannot. I
encourage students to look for opportunities to do that. To help provide those opportunities I organized the Cranbury Scout Band, one of very few continuously-operating Scout bands in the country, which I have directed for more that ten years now. I've also been on the staff of several Jamboree Scout bands.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is a different individual and learns in different ways. I try to make lessons as interesting and as useful to each student as I can, and include different things based on your interests and capabilities. Most students find duets are fun, so I include them often - both duets with the same instrument you are studying and duets with other instruments as well so you can learn the sound of such combinations. I encourage you to "play with your ears" as well as your fingers, to become a critical listener to your own performance and to decide whether you sound the way you want to sound.

I encourage students to try different things to become a more rounded musician. This might be something closely related - a flutist trying the piccolo or a clarinetist trying the bass clarinet. Or, it might be further afield - a flutist trying the guitar or a violinist learning movable Do and solfeggio singing. Every aspect of music is good to know.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My music studio is in a separate building - actually a renovated barn about two centuries old. The studio contains a piano and all the other instruments that I teach, and is roomy enough not only for private lessons but for musical groups up to about ten. I have many other resources there as well, including files of music, a small music library, and a computer that we can use for many purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need their instruments, music, and stands.
I bring my own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Classical,
Marching Band,
Ethnic (such as Jewish, Irish)

We had a wonderful experience for our 1st visit. We really look forward to weekly lessons with Jerry. We feel comfortable with him, he's very detailed in explaining/teaching. And we didn't know how to tune the Violin but Jerry tuned it for us over and over again. 😀

I had Flo for my piano teacher for about 2 years and I learned so much in that time frame. She would always give me new songs to study and every lesson, they would challenge me to try harder. Flo stayed on topic and always kept me focused when I was trying to learn something particularly difficult. I believe she is an excellent teacher with a kind heart who is passionate and dedicated to her job. She is the kind of teacher that will try her hardest and will not give up on your child. I hope you choose her, I'm so glad I did.

I had Flo as an accompaniment in my voice lessons in the past for 5 years. She had absolutely no trouble accompanying me on some of my hardest pieces. She's played my theater pieces, classical pieces, and jazz pieces easily such as Steven Sondheim and Jason Robert Brown. I highly recommend Florence because of her endless abilities with the piano.

Katie is the best voice teacher I've ever had. She is so kind and passionate and gives 110% to absolutely everything. She really cares about the success and wellbeing of her students, and works herself to the bone to accommodate her students and friends. She is extremely fun to be around and keeps her students engaged throughout the entire lesson.

Vocal Training · In studio
Ms. Katie really changed my life as a vocalist. Up until before I started taking lessons with her, I was confused on how to better myself as a singer. I was complacent and lazy when I came to practicing music. I was one of the better singers in my school, but I wanted to become one of the best in the state. I eventually decided to take lessons from Ms. Katie after attending a workshop run by her. After a couple of lessons with Katie, I immediately saw the difference. From being rejected from my Regions and All-State Choir the previous year, I was able to not only get into both choirs that year, but also score very well in my section. I also had the immense pleasure of working with Ms. Katie in a production of the musical "All Shook Up!" Having had only classical vocal training prior to the production, Ms. Katie really helped me develop the ability to sing the genre of musical theatre. She is one of the most talented vocalists and teachers I have ever worked with, but equally as important, Ms. Katie is able to connect with not only myself, but all her students on a personal level, which only benefits the student. Without Ms. Katie, I would still be the complacent immature singer that I was in the past. She brings an incredible passion and energy to her profession, and I strongly recommend her to any voice student looking to better themselves and do great things in music!
