I have been teaching classical and electric guitar for about 9 years and I structure my lessons according to a student's goals, and objectives on the instrument. My students have been able to learn tunes by ear, and understand chord progressions and structures, and play with a pick or finger style!
I specialize in rock, metal, classical and jazz, and I can also teach extended range guitars and alternate tunings. Learn to shred, sweep, alternate pick and hybrid pick like no one's business!

Poh Hock is a well-rounded and versatile teacher. He is capable in many styles of playing and has a powerful understanding of music theory to reinforce his teaching. He is very patient and relaxed; I never feel stressed preparing for or during lessons. He is able to tailor his lessons more around exercises or learning songs depending on the wants and needs of the students. I've been taking music lessons in different instruments for 10+ years; learning with Poh Hock has singularly been the most positive and productive experience in that time.
Phillip Wrenbeck W.
Poh is awesome. He's super talented and educated in music. He has a great personality and challenges me in a positive way. I'm always looking forward to the next lesson!
Julian
Poh Hock is a great teacher that really has a passion for playing and teaching guitar. His style of teaching is very precise and methodical. I learned a lot of songs taking lessons with him but more importantly Poh Hock taught me how to practice material that I was working on. The lessons were really more like guided practice sessions. While some teachers that I've had might just use the lesson to teach material and have me practice over the week, Poh Hock used lesson time to really drill sections and get them to sound good. I absolutely recommend Poh Hock as a teacher for anyone who seriously wants to improve their playing and their approach to music in general.

I can teach students by ear or with sheet music. I can adapt my lessons with students based on what they seek to accomplish and what their current skill level is. In teaching tin whistle, my approach to teaching focuses on the enjoyment associated with playing the instrument and learning the cultural aspect of music-making.

I help students learn a variety of styles from classical to jazz to pop. Something that I especially emphasis is improv and composition which is something we can get started with at any level and we usually dabble in from the first lesson. I teach students age four and up. Anyone can enjoy playing the piano and I help students play the songs that most interest them while making sure they are well-rounded musicians!

I use a variety of curricula depending on the age and interests of the student.
-For students 4-6 I use Music for Little Mozarts where we learn music with stuffed animals based on famous composers like Mozart Mouse, Beethoven Bear, and Clara Schumann-Cat.
-7 to 12: I use the Piano Pronto method book series in the their 45 minute lessons. These books incorporate a varied repertoire with many songs the students already know and enjoy.
-For teens and adults I have some series that contain varied selections of different genres, some that focus on jazz, and some that are ...

The amount of patience that Laney has is incredible. It is key for me to have a teacher that is encouraging, kind and that doesn't make me feel bad when I make mistakes. Also, I can tell that she loves teaching and that she has so much knowledge to share!!
Rachel
Laney has engaged my 7 year old son, my husband and myself so that we all love learning and playing piano in our house together. She is an excellent teacher for all ages and is skilled at teaching not only how to read and play piano, but also how to understand and appreciate theory and composition to make you a better musician.
Alexandra
Ella es una increíble pianista y maestra. Tomé casi 6 meses de piano con ella y aprendí muchas cosas. Me encantaba que elegía canciones que me iban a gustar y de acuerdo a mi nivel. Disfruté mucho las clases!

She is an awesome pianist and teacher. I took almost 6 months of piano with her and I learned lots of stuff. I loved that she always picked songs I was gonna like and according to my level. I really enjoyed each class!

I have been teaching for 7 years, and I enjoy helping my students be the best they can be! I help my students find their areas of interest, and then we are able to focus on those areas. I also put an emphasis on learning basic theory. I have a variety of excellent books that I will recommend, but we can also work with some of the books that the student may already own.

About Monica

I got married in October 2019, and now my husband and I work at a private Christian academy in Sanford, ME. I enjoy playing piano and singing in my free time, and I love working with kids and sharing my love of music.

Amy
My 7 year old daughter loves being able to take lessons from Monica through FaceTime! She has progressed really well in just a couple of months of doing lessons and is choosing to practice on her own. She has developed a joy for hymns and classical pieces. Monica works wonderfully with her and makes sure she understands what she needs to work on for her next lesson and always makes sure she doesn’t have any questions. Monica encourages her to do her best and push herself.
Michelle
My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Monica for about 5 years. Monica started out teaching lessons to her at our home and now my daughter is currently taking lessons online. Monica is a wonderful teacher. Her patient attitude puts her students at ease. The convenience of taking online lessons works well for our schedule. I don't have to drive my daughter anywhere. It doesn't matter what the weather is, lesson doesn't have to be canceled. This has been a wonderful experience for us and we highly recommend Monica as a piano teacher.

"Joy has such a pure patient heart to teach others how to perfect the gifts and talents that they have. I love that she remembered personal technical issues that I struggled with as the lessons progressed. I wasn't just another number or a person who would bring her additional income. She provided genuine, positive feedback when needed but was also very honest with me about areas that I needed to improve. What's best is that I improved my skills! I got everything I needed from the lessons! I would recommend her services to all especially because of her vast and diverse knowledge in music!"
