Christine E.

Georgetown, MA

About Christine

I absolutely love music and my goal is to help my students learn to love and appreciate music as well. I am a graduate of Umass Lowell's Music Education program. I began playing at the age of 6 and
haven't been able to stop. I've taught private piano for the last 16 years as well as group lessons. Most of my experience is with beginning students, but I teach all levels. My experiences in my past private lessons as well as in the teaching program at Umass have helped me to understand my students and how to help them reach their goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I work with my students to help them set and achieve their goals. Each lesson is designed and prepped to meet each student's individual needs. I believe in integrating theory, history, ear training, and technique into each lesson to develop musicianship and an overall knowledge of the subject rather than just learning to play. I have high expectations for my students, yet I am patient and understanding. At times lessons may be challenging, but they will also be fun!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the students to have a keyboard/piano appropriate to their level of playing for us to have our lesson on. I will provide any books or supplementary material that may be needed. Any books purchased specifically for that student will need to be reimbursed.

*** Specialties ***
Teaching young beginners and elementary age children.

Christine has been very reliable and punctual. She is very sweet and patient with my 6 year old. My daughter is very comfortable with her and likes her a lot. I would recommend her to anyone looking to take piano lessons.

Ben B.

Ipswich, MA

About Ben

OPEN REGISTRATION CLOSED. STUDENTS CAN BE ACCEPTED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS.

I hope to encourage and build you up in whatever challenge we decide to tackle. Whether you are starting out for the fir
st time or you have been playing for a while, I'm here to push you, to see you grow and to learn things as well. I enjoy working with both children and young adults. My students say that I'm fun, that I run lessons in an exciting manner, and that I love showing others what it is to make music.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from Gordon College (Wenham, MA) and have a varied cohort of students ranging in ages. I teach both young musicians just starting out and the not so young, helping them achieve personal goals on a particular instrument. In my other life, I serve as a Firefighter and a Communications Officer in the Town of Ipswich.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are scheduled in 30, 45, or 60 minute sessions.
Criteria:
30 Minutes: beginners or students in elementary school
45 Minutes: some experience or students in middle/high school
60 Minutes: extensive experience or advanced students

All lessons must be booked per person (i.e. if you have two students who want to take lessons with me, they each must be signed up for a separate lesson slot).

*** Studio Equipment ***
No studio available

*** Travel Equipment ***
(12-string Fender Acoustic Guitar, Bach Stradivarius B-flat Trumpet, Yamaha student model Trumpet, Bach semi-pro B-Flat Cornet)

**Location Requirements**
All lessons are to be in the students' home or other pre-determined location set by the student.

Students must provide their own instruments. I can assist you in choosing an appropriate instrument for the student through local vendors.

All method books must also be purchased upon discussion with the instructor within the first two weeks of lessons. As the student progresses, additional method books of literature will need to be purchased at the instructor's discretion.

*** Specialties ***
Strong in classical trumpet, jazz and contemporary piano, music technology, basic recording. Well-versed in teaching all instruments listed at the basic level. As students progress in their studies, if it is not my specialty instruments, I would refer you to a teacher advanced in your students area.

My son Kyle is a beginner guitar player. He is currently being homeschooled, as the result of being pulled out of a local elementary school, as the result of bullying. He has been thru a LOT emotionally, and we are slowly helping him to recover from the emotional damage.
Putting yourself out there with something new like this, and leaving yourself vulnerable are things that are difficult for him right now.
Ben has been so professional, caring, and patient with Kyle. I believe he will help him find the passion in this beautiful instrument, and the confidence to express his feelings and enjoy the art of music.
Thank you Ben!!

Chris B.

Rockport, MA

About Chris

Chris Baum is an American violinist, composer, educator, and recording artist. A pioneer of modern string technique, his strength lies in his versatility, consistently pushing the boundaries of the vi
olin while molding his playing to fit ensembles and genres often deemed unsuitable for the instrument. Trained in a demanding classical environment, Baum expanded his musical vocabulary at Berklee College of Music, where he studied contemporary repertoire under Eugene Friesen, Mimi Rabson, and Sheldon Mirowitz. He graduated with honors in 2010 with a degree in film scoring and composition.

Chris' growing list of credits include collaborations with Bent Knee, The Dear Hunter, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Dropkick Murphys, Amanda Palmer, Symmetry, Art Decade, Ben Levin, Guy Mendilow, Jherek Bischoff, and the Video Game Orchestra, who recently featured him as a soloist at Boston’s Symphony Hall and on the ensemble's recent tours in China and Taiwan. He currently resides in recording studios, tour buses, and occasionally, Rockport, MA, where he teaches music at Brookwood, Pingree, and Rockport Schools.

Chris' teaching curriculum consists of material and techniques custom-tailored to the individual, with a strong emphasis on technique, theory, ear training, and improvisation. He has been sharing his passion for the violin to musicians of all levels and ages for the past decade, whether their interests lie in classical, jazz, rock, folk, avant-garde, or somewhere in between.

I think the 5 star description sums it up nicely, 'Best instructor ever'. I've worked with Chris for a few months now and his knowledge, friendliness, and ability to to teach are astounding! He teaches in a very dynamic way, adjusting the lesson on the fly to make sure you are learning what you need to know, when you need to know it, and at a pace that works well. Definitely recommended!

Dominic M.

Derry, NH

About Dominic

Hello, I am 25 years old from Derry NH. I have been playing drums for many years, but I have been a serious, practicing drummer, since December 2014. I have recently taken up piano in September 2015.
I spend an average of 4-6 hours everyday practicing between the two instruments. Usually two hours each. Occasionally much more. I am very knowledged in the craft of practicing and love to share my knowledge of drums, drumming, piano and music in general. I am currently enrolled at northern Essex community college (necc) as a music performance major with plans of transferring to New England Conservatory (NEC) in Boston or Southern University of New York, (suny Purchase). I have taken lessons from many teachers to learn as much as I can. Music is my passion, and sharing that with others brings me great joy.

Dominic was always professional, on time and easy to communicate with. My 16 year old daughter found him easy to work with and learned a great deal in a short time. He was also very accommodating when she had to reschedule due to her busy schedule. Definitely a great teacher that we highly recommend!!

Dom has been such an amazing music instructor! My whole life I've never thought I'd be able to learn an instrument or music in general, but he has helped me so much with it! Dom is very welcoming and friendly which eases away any stress I might have from trying to learn something new. If it weren't for him and his upbeat attitude I wouldn't have the motivation I do now. He makes it easy to understand with his years of experience and is very supportive and understanding if you're having a hard time. If you don't have Dom as your instructor, you will definitely regret it!

Spice Up Your Playing with these Essential Guitar Strum Patterns

Starting with a simple prog
