Bgcheck Background Checked


I have been teaching violin for six years. Though I am classically trained, my interest in music goes far beyond classical music. I am constantly listening to various genres of music and consider myself a forever learner, loving everything in music from Prokofiev to the Flaming Lips. It is my job to help guide my students through their musical journeys, whether that is helping them get into their regional orchestra or teaching them that one song they've always wanted to learn. I teach out of the Essential Elements or Suzuki Method books. Though my lessons are fun and relaxed I will always give my students that extra push when needed. My goal is to help each student reach their personal success and to instill a love for playing music.

Tools for lessons:

Music Stand
Rosin
Shoulder rest or sponge
Previous method books (if you are not a first time learner)
Metronome
Pencil

Great instruction, she had me working with the bow on the very first lesson. Very responsive to students needs, A+ will continue studying viola with phoebe.

Miss Phoebe is an excellent, patient instructor for my two young violinists! She is prompt, and has lots of tools in her tool kit to bring about proper posture, tone, sound. She exhibits a very warm kind discipline that makes clear her expectations without being mean about it at all. I think my kids have made significant progress under her tutelage and I would definitely recommend her for any skill level!

I'm an adult learner who went through Suzuki book 2 and a few other pieces with Phoebe as my instructor. I spent a month prior with a "bad experience" and hadn't taken lessons in probably 10 years before that.

Working with Phoebe was GREAT. She was very easy to work with and really saw to improving my skills. She was encouraging and very positive. When I had troubles with parts (which was often), she would always have multiple suggestions as to how to practice them to work through the difficulties. She also gave me nudges along when I didn't think I could do certain things too. All in all, I had a great experience working with Phoebe and would have loved to continue to work with her if she was still in my local area.

If you're wondering why not 5 stars, that's more from my lack of experience than any issue with her. The guide says 5 stars is the "best teacher ever". She probably was the best teacher ever for me, but I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate. Is she a good fit for an advanced student, I'm going to guess that, yes, she is, but I don't know that info personally so I went with 4.

Help them reach their goals as musicians through the teaching of fundamental skills needed to play the cello, tailoring the lesson plans according to every students’ needs and desires as a musician/future leader. Music is a form of communication and an outlet for emotions we cannot put into words. I want to enable you to play all styles of music and for the instrument to become an extension of your voice.

As a cellist, I perform and record in various venues throughout the country, with various chamber groups ranging from duos to symphonic orchestras. I premiere various contemporary works by composers and help promote their work on social media. I give private recitals and also volunteer to perform in nursing homes, jails and foster homes to help share and promote music to places not easily accessible. I teach private lessons to students of all ages and abilities, helping them reach their goals and to help empower them to become movers and shakers in our society.

As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back.

"When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him."

He definitely knows how to help with whatever may be troubling you and correct your mistakes so you can improve as a singer. I can say with positivity that my own confidence and voice has grown, even just after a handful of lessons. Thanks Lawrence!!!"

"My 5 star rating is not given lightly. I am now retired after almost 40 years teaching in a school for special needs children. Tim does it all right. A great guy with a laid-back, easy way. Tim is very supportive and will ease any anxiety you may have. He understands the process of learning and knows how to teach! Tim makes things fun, he will challenge you at your level. He’ll give you riffs and drills that quickly link to songs, so in no time you’re playing. Tim has all the skills and tricks and will make them accessible to you. He will help you key in on what’s important to keep you moving in your process.

Keep your harp handy, listen to Tim, give it 10 minutes 3x a day, and you’ll be “killing it” in no time. But, it’s all about the process, and Tim makes it fun! Look no further.
My only regret is that I am unable to give Tim 6 stars!"

Drumming With Your Weak Hand: 3 Helpful Tips

If you're like most drummers, you have one hand that doesn't always like to cooperate. And for some, the frustration that ensues makes it much easier to just ignore the problem and favor the dominant hand. Over time, while the stronger hand gets better control and technique, the weaker hand just gets... well, weaker and weaker. But just like switch hitters are invaluable players on a baseball team, learning how to build strength in your weaker hand can make you a much more efficient drummer. …
