About Richard
In 1999, I picked up a pair of drumsticks for the first time and have been hooked ever since. In 2006, I graduated Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Drumset Performance, having studied with Mike Mangini, Dave DiCenso, and Terri-Lyne Carrington, amongst many others. Upon graduating, I've had the privilege of performing with some of New England's top club and GB bands, as well as some original acts in various genres. I've had the honor of performing at functions for Fenway Park, TD Garden, and The Blue Man Group. In 2012, I recorded with the NYC-based rock band The Young Presidents, appearing on several tracks that included Corey Glover (Living Colour), Jake Hertzog (Montreux Jazz Guitar Winner 2006), and Adam Ezra. The recordings were produced by Rob Fraboni (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan)
. You can hear me on tracks 4, 5, 7, & 9 on their album "Coalition".

In addition to gigging, I also maintain a steady private teaching practice. From 2009-2013, I was a guest instructor at Berklee College of Music's annual Percussion Festivals, conducting drumset masterclasses and ensemble classes with mostly high school aged youth. In 2012, I was a counselor/instructor at Camp Jam, working with high school aged kids on bettering their musicianship and assisting them in performing with rock bands. I've also conducted small summer camp masterclasses at Boston Drum Center in Acton.

I still continue to perform and record regularly around New England and parts of New York, as well as teach privately. I also play cajon on some gigs, as well as guitar, piano, and am currently working on writing some original music, as well as several fiction and instructional method books.

About Christine
I absolutely love music and my goal is to help my students learn to love and appreciate music as well. I am a graduate of Umass Lowell's Music Education program. I began playing at the age of 6 and haven't been able to stop. I've taught private piano for the last 16 years as well as group lessons. Most of my experience is with beginning students, but I teach all levels. My experiences in my past private lessons as well as in the teaching program at Umass have helped me to understand my students and how to help them reach their goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I work with my students to help them set and achieve their goals. Each lesson is designed and prepped to meet each student's individual needs. I believe in integrating theory, history, ear training, and technique into each lesson to develop musicianship and an overall knowl
edge of the subject rather than just learning to play. I have high expectations for my students, yet I am patient and understanding. At times lessons may be challenging, but they will also be fun!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the students to have a keyboard/piano appropriate to their level of playing for us to have our lesson on. I will provide any books or supplementary material that may be needed. Any books purchased specifically for that student will need to be reimbursed.

*** Specialties ***
Teaching young beginners and elementary age children.

About Tegan
I have taught private instruction and group instruction in such varied subjects as Music Theory/Ear Training, Woodwinds, and Crochet. I completed a B.A. of Music at University of Massachusetts - Boston, in August, 2014. As a working musician, I currently perform oboe with the Brockton Symphony Orchestra (Dir. James Orent) and the University of Massachusetts - Boston Chamber Orchestra (Dir. Dr. Jon C. Mitchell). I have most recently studied under Dr. Emilian Badea in both Oboe and Accordion, with Bulent Guneralp in Piano and Voice, and with Dr. David Patterson for Music Theory, Ear Training, Arrangement and Composition. Music has been an important part of my life for over 20 years.

For information regarding my approach to instruction of a specific subject, please click on the name of the subject listed above for a full description.

A
s I do not have access to a car, I prefer that students come to my home studio in Somerville, or that they be within public transit options.

N.B. I own a dog, so for those with allergies, it might be best to meet in your own home.

Heather has been fantastic for my 10 yr old! It is clear Heather's knowledge is extensive but she makes the lessons fun and is so engaging with my daughter. My kid doesn't realize how much she is learning and just loves going to her lessons every week! As a bonus, her singing actually improved as well! I was impressed! Heather is superb and all you could hope for in a teacher.

Greg is a kind, supportive, intelligent, and talented pianist and mentor. My ability as a pianist grew astronomically after starting with Greg, and they were able to supply the perfect pieces and exercises to support me as a student. I hope to take lessons again at some point in the near future.

Greg is a generous teacher. He was always concerned that I was understanding the lessons that he put forth. He was very perceptive in my shortcomings and always spent the time on those deficiencies. My experience with Greg was very positive and I don't hesitate to recommend him!

Greg is a great teacher - very adaptable to what I was looking for. I know he teaches children and young adults, but even for a stubborn adult, he is able to get through to me.
I practice music I like, learn shortcuts (for me - knowing I would forever remain a Mussolini or whatever the guys name was to his Mozart) and immediately can identify where I was having difficulty even when I couldn't articulate it. Highly recommend Greg.
