Christina B. Lancaster, PA

About Christina

I began piano at age 6 under Suzuki-certified instructor Cindy Wittenburg. I loved everything about it - even practicing scales! After nine years, I took a break from piano and took up drums. While I loved drumming, upon my entry to Millersville University, I decided my number one love was still the ivories. I began learning under Dr. Anita Renfroe, graduating with a B.A. in Music Business & Technology. Although no longer in classes, I still teach myself piano works as well as write new pieces. *** Lesson Details *** My teaching philosophy is: Enjoy your time while learning something valuable! My teaching style is informal and relaxed, but I expect discipline and practicing on the end of the student. I love the excitement my students get from seeing progress, and if you're willing to ...

James T. Lancaster, PA

About James

I graduated with a B.A. in Professional Music from Boston's Berklee College of Music. When I first heard about Berklee, I too thought of warm and sunny Berkeley California and not the frigid winters in Boston. Berklee however, is respected world-wide as the musicians music college. Each year, only 3% of students are able to graduate. Advanced freshman placement accelerated all Berklee core requirements by my sophomore year. An early focus on their Advanced Harmony/Theory and Ear Training electives provided the rare opportunity of experiencing Berklee's highest level courses in both departments. I graduated with Honors in 7 semesters with a cumulative music GPA of 3.6. (Magna Cum Laude). Since graduation, I've been a full-time independent professional musician with over 28 years of ...

Jim Rocks! I love hanging out every Sunday jamming

I have dabbled with the guitar for a couple of years but never got serious about. This year I made a new years resolution to get serious about it and find a guitar instructor.

I am so happy that I found Jim. He is brilliant with music and is that laid back, rad teacher that you hope to have for guitar.

We are about 5 weeks into lessons and I'm already playing Dead or Alive, Blackbird, Polly, and learning new songs every week. I thought we would be doing "boring" exercises still but he is great at teaching you the basics while keeping it fun.

A+ for Jim. Also, he is extremely flexible.

The only downside is that I wanted him to teach me how to sing Blackbird, but that's not his cup of tea. haha

Thank you!

Hey Jim- I had a GREAT 1st lesson. You went slow enough so that I could understand what was going on but also went a little quicker so we could make the most of the half hour session. The things we worked on were exactly what i was hoping for. I will definitely be back on I feel confident in my "homework" - those darn finger exercises and I have a love hate relationship right now!! Thank you!

Fantastic Teacher

I am not your typical student. I am 45, and male. Im an acomplished guitar player and play in a band. I never had any real training for singing, and had very little control over my voice or really knew how to control it.
Roz has helped me immensely. She is very knowledgeable in music and voice theory, and has very well thought out constructive criticism. She uses a lot of visualization techniques to help with body and breath control. She is patient and understanding and willing to talk through some theory issues, instead of just drilling lessons. Although most of her students are younger, she really thoughtfully catered her lesson to my needs, instead of just trying to apply the same approach to everyone. I would recommend her highly to anyone and will be sending my son for piano lessons!

My grandson is taking piano lessons from Rosalind H. At first I was wondering about the interaction because he's shy; but he looks forward to his lessons and practices diligently. I'm sure it's because of Rosalind's experience and teaching techniques that makes it so enjoyable for him; she's very good with children. I'm so glad she was available!

Crystal B. Coatesville, PA

About Crystal

A saxophonist by trade, I, Crystal B., have been privately instructing for six years. The ultimate goal of my teaching style is for my students to become well-rounded musicians. I achieve this by providing individuals with a solid foundation in basic music theory (i.e. scale structures) in order to understand any music that is presented to them, and challenge them with site reading exercises. A better understanding of music leads to the true enjoyment of playing music. As a freelance musician, I am a woodwind doubler within the Philadelphia circuit. A versatile player, I have performed in shows including Thoroughly Modern Millie with the Upper Darby Summer Stage, Fiddler on the Roof also with the Upper Darby Summer Stage, and A Chorus Line with the Swarthmore Player’s Club, while ...
