Are you a beginner or intermediate bass player interested in learning how to memorize the fret-board, find notes, play funky rhythms or create your own? Maybe you want to rock out to your favorite band and play that bass line that's been stuck in your head.

I've been playing Bass for about 2 1/2 years now, and picked up all the theory I needed to know about the bass on the road playing shows. I had to learn quick and usually on stage (while singing), so I can show you all my tips & tricks to enhance your playing or help you get started.

Whether you are planning on playing in a band, by yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your bass guitar goals! If you have any questions, please message me!

Mikala has been providing lessons for my son Ben, and she has been amazing!! I love that she is not limited at all in her abilities to cross over her knowledge as a vocalist, piano player, percussion and strings! And her perspective as a professional musician is incredible! She is so energetic, my son is always engaged! Thank you Miki!!

I’ve been teaching harp for 20 years. I cater my teaching style and repertoire to the needs of the individual. I believe this is a partnership, so I try to offer options wherever possible so the student can find the music they feel will help them express themselves. I focus on note reading, but I also examine shapes of chords and relations and patterns in order to make music reading as quick and easy as possible. Depending on the student, these added tricks may be huge way makers in their music making experience.

I offer recitals twice a year. For online students, I host a virtual recital. I believe that the more frequently we perform, the easier it is to overcome stage anxiety. I, personally, battle stage anxiety, so I am able to assist others with managing these same feelings.

My ultimate goal with every student is to foster a love for music, both at the harp and in general.

Phaedra is a professional colleague of mine. I have always been impressed with how well prepared her students are for competitions and auditions. Her attention to technical detail, and musicality show a dedication to, and love of teaching. During the Covid-19 pandemic, she is being extremely careful having her students wash their hands, and use hand sanitizer before, and during lessons.
Emma
I took piano lessons from Miss Paedra for about 5 years. I started when I was 6 years old. Miss Paedra is so kind and patient. She really helped me to grow and develop many skills and techniques with piano and theory. The background knowledge I got from Miss Paedra with music and theory altogether ultimately helped me out when starting to learn new instruments like the violin. I still play piano every now and then and I absolutely love and enjoy music. I really appreciate all the work and help I received when taking lessons. Miss Phaedra really helped to push and motivate me to practice and grow, and I know that she truly enjoys working with each of her students and wants the best for them.
Corie
I came to Phaedra as an adult harp student having had about a year experience prior. I had no idea how much I would grow with her as a teacher! She improved my technique, knowledge, skill level, and confidence as a harpist. She truly cares about her students and would find pieces for me to play that were at my level but would keep my interest. My two girls also took piano and harp lessons from her and loved her warmth and encouragement. Coming from no experience at all, I was surprised to see that they were playing Debussy and Chopin after only a few years. Their love for music began with the foundation Phaedra provided and still continues to this day. I was sad once we moved and were no longer to have her as an instructor as we have never found her equal.

I took lots of Music Theory classes in college. I have written 2 progressive rock albums with lots of chords and studied Jazz which is loaded with music theory. We can work on getting a great handle on what the music is doing theory wise.

Claire makes challenging pieces more helpful by giving fun ways to learn them. She is a great instructor!
Christy
Claire makes sure that she answers any questions that I have. She goes at my pace. She's a great teacher! She is so experienced and patient.
Christy
Taking lessons on line is sometimes challenging; for instance, the instructor is talking but sometimes her words become garbled, like watching television and the picture and sound fades in and out.

I thought the teacher wanted me to just memorize the one section (the tune); she wasn't clear the first time (the first lesson) on memorizing the tune for playing All of the exercises without looking at the music notes. So, yesterday's lesson wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be.

My 5 year old takes classes with her. She is a very shy and anxious child. Ms Paniyeva has been very patient and accommodating. She can read and play in 5 months. I can’t believe her progress. I think we were very lucky to find her. My daughter calls her always Smiling.
Beverly
I'm satisfied with the lessons I took, even though seven months of piano still not enough.
Beverly
I learned a lot in seven months with Liana. I was pleased to have her, but I'm still slow. I think I need six months more in order to gain enough speed. Anyway, Liana is a good instructor to start with. She encourages and leaves you with no fear.

Whether you are interested in how pop songs are written, analyzing the great compositions of the classical repertoire, or need help producing your own tracks in my home studio, I can help you reach those goals. Composition can be taught in conjunction with piano lessons (an understanding of musical theory is fundamental and most easily acquired by hands on knowledge at the keyboard) or on its own.

Amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Matthew for more than a 1 1/2 years and is always asking when she will have her next piano lesson. He is a very patient teacher and very knowledgeable of the subject. Matthew has a very kid-friendly personality and now, my daughter has been taking a few singing lessons once in a while, too.

I have been taking music lessons on and off for many years now and it's easy to say that Matthew has been the best! He is super knowledgeable and very easy to work with.

I learned a lot from him and would highly recommend him as a teacher.

Viola Vs. Violin: What's the Difference?

Have you ever seen someone holding a stringed instrument, seemingly a violin, and used it as a conversation starter with them?  “That’s so cool that you play the violin!  How long have you been playing?” Only to get the response you most feared “It’s a viola actually”. Don’t worry! Tons of people make the same mistake, and it can even be difficult for musicians to distinguish the viola vs. violin at first glance.  There are several differences, including some obvious ones, a …
