About Kristin
Hello!

I received a Bachelor's in Music Education and Performance from Drake University in Flute and Piano. Currently pursuing a Master's in Music Therapy.

At Drake, I received a musical scholarship covering 80% of my tuition costs.
I was also honored to sit as Principal Flute in both the Drake Symphony Orchestra and the Drake Wind Symphony, the top performing groups at the University.

I started to play the flute and piano in second grade, and
my love and passion for music have only grown and matured since then.

I enjoy sharing what I've learned, and learning from my students as well.

I am excited and thrilled by the opportunity to work with you!

My first piano lesson turned out to be so much more than I could have ever expected. My teacher, Kristin is so engaged in the lesson and so very well prepared. We covered so much in such a short time. She made every minute both fun and informative while providing a very friendly environment in her studio. I feel very fortunate to have found such a really competent music teacher.

Kristin is a wonderful piano teacher! She is skilled and experienced, as well as very enthusiastic. My 7 year old son started with her and absolutely loved his lessons, and more importantly grew a love to play the piano. In addition she taught me to play again, not playing for about 30 years! Amy is reliable, flexible, makes the lessons both fun and instructive and can tailor to your preferred kind of music. I would highly recommend her!

About Eunhye
Dual Major in Piano Performance (Classical/Jazz Study) and Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music

Studied with professor
Ed Bedner (Doctoral Studies at BU)
Vadim Neselovskyi (International Pianist/Composer)

*** Lesson Details ***
1. Piano

- Relaxation Technique: Maximize your performance ability that you already have. (It takes a week to master it, and I will walk you through how you will be applying to the pieces you work on)

- Classical Repertoire: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and more! If you have a school recital, we can work on these masters' pieces. You will be not only memorize and play, but also express as if it were your own music.

- Jazz & Improvisation: Beginner to Intermediate level (pre-college level) Learning jazz gives you a great foundation to play any kinds of contemporary music; R&B, Dance, Folk, etc.
E
ach lesson will give you hands-on exercises along with insights to delve into your creativity. It is highly important to determine what each student's goal is in order to design the course. So, please consult with me!

- Recital Preparation, College Application Prep.

* * * * *

2. Singing

- Optimal Singing Body

Although the health of your body is crucial in performing any kinds of instruments, singing needs your body to be the most optimal condition because Your Body Is Your Instruments.

I will help you to keep up with taking care of your body in terms of singing. There are techniques that you can learn to maximize your singing ability. I will share them with you each session.

- Finding your Own Voice

We will work together to discover what styles that suit your voice most. And, we will get your unique voice emerge, so that you don't try to sing like someone, but you actually sing it.

- Basic Musicality - pith, rhythm, expressions!
Even when you are physically ready, if your brain doesn't understand what you are hearing and singing, you aren't going anywhere. Ear training with me will improve this area, for sure.

* * * * *

3. Composition

- Theory that prepares you to Compose:

To get you ready to compose, you need to know a bit about 'Harmony, Counterpoint', which has been a powerful tool for generations. If you are not going to master classical composition, however, it can be overwhelming. I will walk you through the most important materials that you need to know to start your composition.

- Your Actual Compositions Down!
We will work together to finish your compositions either on paper, recording or both at the end of the semester. You will be proud of yourself to have your portfolio!

* * * * *

4. Combinations
I also offer the combination of each area described above.
I recommend to spend at least 30 min for each area though.

Thank you so much for reading the introduction. I would be really happy to hear from you and to have a chance to improve our "music life" together eventually.

About ali
My name is Ali You, I am a second-year graduate student, and my major is violin performance. In May 2017, I will graduate from Boston University and get my master of music degree.

I’ve begun to study in BU with Professor Bayla Keyes since 2015, in these two years, I’ve learned a lot from her, not only my violin skill, but also a lot of teaching methods.

I got my bachelor degree in Renmin University of China, which is one of the best university in China. I had 24 students before I came to States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient, I have a beautiful smile, of course, and the most important thing is I can teach well. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at the same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music

I found Ali through Thumbtack where I searched a violin teacher for my 4yrs old daughter. After two lessons, I made a decision to learn together with my daughter. Ali is very friendly and nice and professional. I share the one hour lesson with my daughter with no extra fee charged. Time flexible too! I have been learned for two months, improved very fast after her guide. Recommended!

About Carolina
Hi, there! My name is Carolina and I can't wait to meet you!
I am a native of Mallorca (Spain) and I've been teaching private lessons since 2006. Teaching is one of my passions in life and I love helping my students in their journey into the vibrant Spanish language and cultures. I went to the University of Wisconsin and earned a Masters in Spanish language and literatures in 2014. Now I'm pursuing my PhD in Spanish Literature focusing on Spanish 20th century poetry. I'm an enthusiastic and positive person and try to reflect that in my teaching. I am very dedicated to my work and I always create the lesson according to the student personality and needs. Whether you want to start learning Spanish from the beginning or want to improve your skills, I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Carol is definitely one of the best instructors. She's the perfect combination of what a student needs to learn Spanish. Carol has an amazing pedagogy on top of being a native speaker. Sometimes we forget that being a native speaker does not automatically mean that one knows how to teach, but Carol is great because she knows how to teach her native language. On top of that, she's patient, accommodating and funny, which helps anybody who's trying to learn a new language!

About Polina
I am a fourth-year student at Brown Univeristy, and I come from Moscow, Russia. I have worked as a tutor of English back home, and I was a German Language Teaching Assistant at Brown last semester, which was really rewarding and challenging and taught me the main thing about language learning - practice! I focus more on the conversational aspects of Russian language, the use of idioms and sayings, jargon, all of it being crucial in everyday conversation. Listening to podcasts and contemporary music, watching internet memes and short videos, reading news reports - I find these methods of improving your language skills to be the most valuable in teaching practice, and the most interesting to most students, because they create an immersion into the everyday life of Russia today.
Despite that I study Philosophy, I have a great passion for Rus
sian Literature since my teenage years, and my greatest crushes are Dostoevsky and Chekhov, not mentioning those 20th century classics, such as Bulgakov, Pasternak, or Brodsky. Russian and Soviet cinema is also incredibly rich and powerful, and I am interested in discussing Russian history as it has been portrayed and thought using the power of the screen.
