Alex E.

Reading, PA

About Alex

I want to inspire students and get them to reach their musical goals. I can teach piano and guitar. I not only teach students how to read, but teach their favorite songs! I will train their ears and turn them into musical performers.

I am a graduate of Kutztown University with a degree in Music Education. I am classically trained in piano. My repertoire includes jazz, pop, rock, classical, and more. My musical tastes are eclectic, and I'm always interested in hearing and learning new music.

While instructing students, I will not only teach sight reading, but will teach them how to u
se their ear and improvise melodies. It's not just about reading music off a page but also feeling the music.

Rosalind H.

Coatesville, PA

About Rosalind

Hi, my name is Rosalind H. and I began my musical education at the age of ten, when I first started taking lessons. Since that time I have performed professionally as a singer in churches, cafes and at weddings and in venues including the Kimmel Center and Carnegie Hall during my college years with the renowned Westminster Symphonic Choir. After spending a year teaching children and adolescents aged 6-17 voice and piano while completing my Master™s of Arts in Music Therapy at Drexel University, I am now looking to take on private students in Chester County and surrounding areas.

I am a Wes
tminster Choir College '11 Alum  who graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Music, summa cum laude. I am also a Member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and a  Board Certified Music Therapist.

 *Please be aware that I teach Beginners Piano.  I do, however, teach all levels of voice, as long as the interested voice student is over at least the age of 8. Singing lessons for students younger than this age can be detrimental to a child's vocal development.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am available to travel to your house (piano students must have a piano or keyboard) or host you in my home 

Piano students can expect to learn the basic music theory knowledge, including reading staff notation and lead sheets.  I will also focus on fingering techniques and coordination.Students will be expected to practice theory knowledge and songs outside of lessons to help improve finger coordination and music-reading speed and accuracy.

I offer beginning to advanced singing lessons for students interested in classical, operatic, Broadway and popular music and beginning piano lessons.I try to provide my students the opportunity to practice a wide range of skills when learning music.

Voice students will learn exercises to practice good breath control, posture and diction, all of which form the foundations of good singing.  Students will be expected to practice these exercises outside of lessons, prior to practicing vocal literature, so as to develop good singing habits.  About fifty percent of lesson time will be dedicated to technique, and the other fifty percent will be dedicated to learning vocal pieces.  Dependent upon their level of knowledge, students may also be asked to watch videos of professional singers outside of lessons, so as to expand their musical understandings and aural sensitivity.  These practices will enhance muscle coordination and breath control when singing, helping to enhance and improve pitch, timbre, expression and vocal range.

As a board certified music therapist, I often draw upon those skills I learned during my master's degree in music therapy, which taught me that music can have a profound effect on the human brain and upon cognitive development.  My skills as a music therapist allow me to better understand a student's cognitive strengths and areas for improvement, and to develop individualized teaching strategies which utilize student strengths.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is equipped with keyboard, guitar and piano, as well as a sizable repertoire of classical, broadway and popular music. I am more than happy to help students find any music they may need for lessons that is not already in my library. I also own a portable keyboard that I use for out-of-studio voice students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide a piano if they are receiving at piano lessons as it is needed for practice. I have a portable keyboard for voice students, but I strongly recommend that voice students record their lessons for reference during practice.

I recommend the following books for piano students (listed by age):
Ages 5-8:
My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A with by Nancy & Randall Faber
Ages 8-12:Piano Adventures - Level 1: Lesson Book [Book]Faber Piano Adventures

Ages 13 and up:

Adult All-In-One Course: Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course, Level ...by Willard A. Palmer

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and operatic music (arias and art songs), but I am comfortable with a wide array of singing literature, as I believe that the technical foundations of good singing remain constant, regardless of the genre. I also have performed with a gospel/spiritual choir, as a soloist, during my college years.

Suzanne is such a fun and very sweet instructor. I usually have a difficult time getting my son interested in most things. However, he loved his first singing lesson, and can't wait to go back. Thank you Suzanne!

Suzanne is definitely an amazing teacher. She always works with you and doesn't leave you hanging. She pushes you but not to much that you get uncomfortable. She's great! Definitely would recommend her to others.
