About Katelyn
How I Can Help You:

I have worked one on one with music students for 10 years. I have extensive experience in teaching classical, musical theater, and pop styles of singing, as well as acting for the stage and beginning piano.

Whether you are a beginner, or a veteran musician, I can help you cultivate your musical skills.

About Me:

I am a classically trained singer, with a master's degree in music from The Peabody Institute. I have performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Tanglewood Music Center, several local and national opera companies, and have been positively reviewed in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Baltimore Sun, and The Boston Globe.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student receives a personalized lesson plan, based on his/her goals, and musical background.

My singers are all trained in a cla
ssical technique, even if they specialize in contemporary singing, to help them avoid potential vocal injury.

My piano students learn to read and play music at their own pace.

My acting and spoken voice students learn to feel comfortable reading clearly, and reciting/performing on stage or other public areas.

My music theory students work one on one with me, learning basic theory (note names, durations, etc.) to advanced theory, ear training, and composition.

I am flexible and am willing to work with students of any age and level. I only require that students practice and enjoy the music they make.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room in home with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classical singer, and specialize in classical voice training. However, I also have extensive experience in other singing styles, from choral to popular, and acting/oratory. I have a minor in music theory, and have taken advanced courses in music theory pedagogy.

About Angelika
Musical Background
My goal as a piano teacher is to help every student understand and learn to appreciate the language of Music. Every student is unique and therefore receives a personalized piano education. No two student learn exactly the same way. Therefore treating students as individuals is very important to me. With time students will discover what music means to them personally. Piano lessons are a lifetime investment and its rewards and benefits has the potential to enrich your life.

I am a classically trained pianist from Germany, where I acquired a Piano Teaching Certification as well as an Associates degree in the States. Thanks to my wonderful piano teacher who was both a concert pianist and music professor, I am now able to share my love for music with others. I teach individual lessons as well as group lessons and music
theory.

Before you start piano lessons, you will need to have a functioning piano and an honest desire to learn to play :)

If you want the best, then schedule a lesson with Angelika. I am an adult who wanted to learn more about piano but also in understanding music in general. So far, I have learned many techniques that make quite a difference in the way a piece sounds and in how much enjoyment I (and anyone who may be listening!) get from playing it. Angelika explains things very well and has the patience sometimes needed when learning something new…or in becoming better at it. Go ahead, do it for yourself (or those you love). You will not be disappointed!

Hi, I've been studying electric mandolin and guitar with Andrew for some time. He is so kind and enthusiastic, and really understands how to teach me at my level. He has been teaching me the deep theory behind improvisation in bluegrass, newgrass, rock, folk...and has an incredible mind full of music, riffs, scales, and chords from all genres. I've gone back and forth from guitar to mando with him, translating the same information onto the different fretboard, building my knowledge and appreciation of music, and I can now improvise confidently while playing out!

About Zak
I graduated with a BS in music from Skidmore College in 2002 and have been making my living as a professional musician ever since by touring internationally as a performer, making studio records, composing for film and television, and teaching. I am primarily a guitar player and a songwriter. I grew up playing drums and studied them well into college. I'm deeply influenced by the blues and country music, but I love anything that's good! I studied jazz and composition in school with a focus on improvisation. I wouldn't be half the musician I am today without the help of a few wonderful teachers. I think of them when I teach and do my best to inspire my students with the same joy and support that was offered to me.

I took guitar lessons with Zak for about 4 years and it was a great experience! I would pick a song to play, and as I learned the song he would teach me the scales that go with it. So I would learn the song and the music theory behind it, super cool. I also learned how to read sheet music from Zak. I enjoyed taking lessons from him!

About Isabel
Thank you for visiting my profile!

To tell you a bit about myself, I am originally from New York where I earned my degree from the Arts and Sciences College at Cornell University. I have studied music at Cornell, Hunter College and Mannes College, and have sung and played piano since my youth. I have been taught by jazz and classical pianists, including world renowned concert pianist, Xiayin Wang. My own professional performance career spans some fifteen years and counting.

For the past several years, I have specialized in piano teaching because I love to embark students on new journeys of musical discovery at the piano! I teach students at my home studio in Westfield where I have an acoustic piano. My specialty is serving beginners through intermediate students who are up to practicing. My students have gone on to shine i
n talent shows, recitals, bands and anywhere else where they choose to make music.

An everyday piano lesson with me incorporates piano improvisation, educational games and apps, music theory and, of course, plenty of fun music to take home and practice! It is my passion to make music come alive for others, and I would love to help you or your loved ones reach musical goals at the piano.

About Brian
Masters student at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, majoring in Music Performance for cello.

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.

Having worked as a social media evaluator, studying algorithms and with my tech-savvy skills, I've been able to consult and help manage accounts to aid them in marketing and pro
moting for growth. Combining both these worlds of classical music and the modern to allow the development of music throughout the world is my goal.
