Kristin M.

Boston, MA

About Kristin

Hello!

I received a Bachelor's in Music Education and Performance from Drake University in Flute and Piano. Currently pursuing a Master's in Music Therapy.

At Drake, I received a musical scholarship covering 80% of my tuition costs.
I was also honored to sit as Principal Flute in both the Drake Symphony Orchestra and the Drake Wind Symphony, the top performing groups at the University.

I started to play the flute and piano in second grade, and
my love and passion for music have only grown and matured since then.

I enjoy sharing what I've learned, and learning from my students
as well.

I am excited and thrilled by the opportunity to work with you!

I've been taking lessons with Kristin for the past 3 weeks now. I used to play as a child, and I'm just getting back into playing now after several years. Finding a teacher that was the right fit was important to me. Kristin is awesome! I felt comfortable right away. She's super patient, knowledgable, and took the time to understand my goals. Highly recommend her :-)

Brighton, MA

About Jake

Hey future students! My name is Jake and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private drum and piano lessons since 2007 and have loved helping my students learn the basics, develop their skills and musical interests, and have a ton of fun! I went to the University of Rochester / Eastman School of Music and earned a degree in music with a concentration in education in 2012.

After graduating I became a Spanish teacher for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. I graduated from the Johns Hopkins University School of Education with a MSEd (Masters of Science in Education) in Educat
ional Studies with a concentration in Spanish education, PreK-12. I helped students gain fluency through a curriculum that balanced reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.

I am currently pursuing a second Masters degree at the Harvard School of Education in order to become a licensed school guidance counselor.

I'm an effective communicator and enthusiastic person and my teaching style is clear, tailored to individual needs, and engaging. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

My children had an amazing first session with Jake! He had an instant rapport with both of them and made the lesson informative, but most importantly fun and on their individual level.

Jake is warm, professional, talented, and amazing with children.

My kids cannot stop talking about Jake and are so excited about learning piano and their next lesson!

Jake is clearly a natural with kids. This was my 5 year old daughter's first lesson. Although she was initially nervous, Jake helped her easily transition into the lesson, playfully keeping her on task. She wants to "play every day!"
