Eric F.

My personal pedagogy is a combination of the basic technical and theoretical aspects of the instrument and what music the student is interested. It is paramount that students of all levels are learning their instrument through performing their favorite music. All necessary technical exercises can be adapted to a specific genre of music. I have many resources and a vast library of literature available for my lessons that I have compiled through my years at Berklee studying with the world's greatest bassists and theorists.

My main goal in every lesson is to be as time efficient as possible. We start with introducing new warm up exercises or new approaches to playing the instrument with confidence and facility. This is important for students of all levels so we can learn the correct ways to execute our favorite music in the most efficient way possible. From there I always spend the most time on the student's goals, like learning a new song or perhaps theory and improvisation. My ...

I am a conservatory trained flutist that loves teaching beginning to intermediate students. I approach teaching as a unique collaboration between me, the student, and their parents, when working with children. A single concept can be approached from many angles, and I am committed to finding the best way to communicate with each student. My goal as a teacher is to see the potential in each student, and help them reach the next level of mastery.

I won't lie, the piano takes work. But, then again, everything worth while does. Both teaching and continuing to learn the piano has been a passion of mine all through my childhood and into adulthood, and I hope to help inspire the same love of the instrument in others. :)

About Leah

I have been learning music since I was 6 years old. It was a requirement in our house, but, nonetheless, growing up in a house of musician siblings had me excited to get started. With 13 siblings, you can imagine that our house was always full of some kind of music. Having grown up in that world

For students who have played an instrument prior to our lessons, I try and shape a curriculum entirely based upon the specific goals of the student, and I rarely use text books although I use a lot of exercises and educational material when appropriate.  I feel learning to play and transcribe songs and solos to increase a students self reliance and confidence is my most important job.  Most students come to me looking for structure so I try and provide a clear path to their goals. For students with no prior music experience I use text books, and exercises to strengthen their technique, expose them to musical ideas, and give them a foundation for basic theory.  After that is accomplished I move into a curriculum that is more personal to their specific goals.

Great first lesson.
Raahil J.
He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.

I wanted to wait for the second lesson to write my review for Tristan as it was I feel more representative of him as a teacher. I felt he used the first lesson more to learn about me and my level and he did alright in that lesson but in contrast he came to the second lesson with an agenda, clear goals and expectations and came across as confident and knowledgeable. He brought a great energy and enthusiasm and was very supportive and I have great confidence in him as a teacher.
