I work with people in regard to singing lessons since 2004 in both academic settings and private face-to-face instructions. The lesson's plans and general direction that it takes during the course of study substantially depends on the student's interests and preferences. Along with main subjects that motivates students most in taking voice lessons ( such as learning new songs from the contemporary popular repertoire, for instance), I will offer my prospective students basic training in general musicianship; this would enable people to sing, read written music, and understand the very basics of music theory. With such advantages at their hands, my students will be able to expand their singing repertoire and to move, probably, to another styles of music for singing and enjoying it for the sake of people's personal aesthetical development.

Chris’s trumpet pedagogical practices are derived from multiple sources. For his beginner students, he utilizes “Essential Elements for Band” from Hal Leonard to create a solid foundation of sound pedagogy and engaging music to start their musical adventure. “Essential Elements” features both familiar songs and specific exercises to focus the student on the unique characteristics and unique sounds of their instrument. After the student reaches an intermediate level, Chris implements method books by Arban, Clarke, and Irons into the practice routine to further improve technical facility and be able to perform more challenging and advanced pieces. For those students interested in learning how to play jazz, Sporer supplies them with ear-training techniques, sheet music of jazz standards, and listening material for reference. He also demonstrates characteristics of this type of music including musical patterns that can be applied over common harmonic sequences and landmark solos for ...

Hey there – I am so glad that you want to study bass guitar! I would love to help you find and hone your unique personality as a bassist. Whether that is through developing good instincts for constructing parts and grooves, building healthy technique that works for your body and prevents injuries, or even working on your original music, I'm here to be your ally for all things bass. A little bit about me: I am a graduate of the world-renowned jazz program at the Jacobs School of Music and have been teaching for 8 years. I have experience with many styles and genres and have been fortunate to play with artists from over 20 countries. My work has been featured in NPR’s Jazz Critic’s Poll, Jazziz Magazine, and All About Jazz, and I was recently chosen to be a cultural ambassador for the U.S. State Department’s global music fellowship (OneBeat). In other words, we can work together on whatever music really lights you up, no matter the style! Hip-hop, metal, samba, punk...nothing is off the

Hannah is such a great teacher and musician! Always patient and encouraging. Her knowledge of music and technique is vast and she has so much to offer. I'm usually very nervous to play in front of others because I'm a beginner, but she creates a safe space that takes the nerves away. She clearly loves what she does and it rubs off; I am always energized after our lessons!

Matt's a great teacher, musician and person all around. I've played guitar for years now but I always leave feeling like I've learned something useful and its never a dull time!

I teach students of all levels. Whatever experience you have, we will work with. I believe that it is important to learn how to play by ear as well as read written music. Understanding both approaches, you will be able to play almost any kind of music in a solo as well as a group setting. Depending on your experience, I can find suitable projects that will help you to develop your skills.

"Adam is a great teacher. This was my first time taking voice lessons (adult beginner) and I wasn't sure what to expect. But Adam's ear is sharp as hell. HE doesn't miss anything and doesn't let me off the hook when I lose focus or miss a note. Anytime I feel like I messed up but don't think he caught it, he always catches it!

Which tells me he's legit. Highly recommended."

He doesn't use a cookie cutter approach to instructing, but pays attention to where you are at and is very good at identifying what skills and knowledge are needed to help you move forward.
