Music theory is an important part of understanding music whether composing or performing. I studied music theory into my graduate performance degree because understanding theory informs your performance. Music theory has allowed me to perform solo and orchestral repetoire at a higher level on my primary instrument.

Experienced teacher and performer. I teach at the college level all the way down to youngsters (5 year old minimum age for me). I LOVE music and playing the drums and I'd like to share my experience with YOU!

As a performer I've toured the country multiple times with various artists, sometimes playing to crowds as large as 7,000. I've been on dozens of recording sessions and I've performed in just about anything type of venue you can imagine.

As a teacher I've maintained a roster of private students for over 10 years while also teaching as adjunct faculty for multiple colleges in Massachusetts. Additionally, I have a music therapy background which has shaped and informed my teaching style.

My favorite genres are jazz, rock, R&B, country, metal, basically anything with rhythm! Lets connect and get you moving forward on your instrument.

Patrick teaches my 14 year old daughter drums and is so amazing with her! Kept her engaged and advancing even on a virtual platform, and listened to her preferences but still brought great ideas and direction to each lesson.

I offer 24 years of experience playing, and 17 years teaching privately and as a public school band director. My curriculum focuses on technique, theory, style, and interpretation.

To develop quality saxophone technique, an emphasis on posture, breath support, embouchure, tone quality, intonation, articulation, and fingering is incorporated in each portion of a given lesson.

The importance of theory and scales is outlined and taught with each lesson. A challenging scale assignment to improve technical ability and music theory knowledge directly correlated to the assigned repertoire will help students understand the structure of the music they are practicing.

Saxophone students dedicate practice time to classical repertoire that includes both lyrical and technical challenges. Demonstrating the highest level of performance and knowledge of a piece is the desired result. A portion of each lesson is dedicated to students learning the style of jazz, a staple for the saxophone. Students

I'm a songwriter and musical theater writer (ASCAP, BMI Workshop) with over 15 years of experience crafting songs and 12 years experience teaching. My work has been performed in New York Off-Broadway, Nashville, and L.A.

Songwriting lessons are in some ways similar to Composition Lessons (see "Composition") with a focus on popular songwriting, including musical theater and commercial music. You will learn about harmony and form, but lyric writing and also how to tell a story through song. You will also work on how to create a catchy hook, how to keep your song focused and clear, how to create a "turn" at the end, and how to grab and keep the listener's attention.

About Natalie

Natalie is a NYU and BMI Workshop trained composer of songs, musicals, and concert music who has helped many songwriters find their voice and fine-tune their skills. She is particularly adept at identifying what is keeping a song from working (whether it be music, lyrics or both) and helping writer

"Gavin is, by far, the best guitar instructor I've ever had. I took lessons from him for 2+ years and learned a great deal from him. He incorporates teaching the essential skills every guitar player should master with music that the student wants to learn. This method really motivated me to play more and become a much better guitar player! I've learned so many valuable skills (chord recognition, improvisation, scale shapes etc) while taking lessons from him, and it has made me a much better player in the long run. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to take guitar lessons, regardless of their prior skill level. Thank you Gavin!"

"Ginni taught both, my husband and I, piano and singing lessons. We had the best experience ever with Ginni learning to play the piano and sing. The only reason we stopped is because our lives got more busy with work and we now relocated to NY and have a baby. If we would be living in AZ still we would choose her as our baby's teacher. Highly recommend her!!! Ginni, I thank God for you!!!!"

"While many piano instructors teach children, I had difficulty finding someone willing to have me (an adult) as a student. I tried two different teachers before finally hearing about Niki . Her lessons focus on the basics (like scales and lessons from technique books), as well as songs. She breaks the songs into manageable portions, so I am never overwhelmed and notice my progress from week to week. Her approach works. I am getting better at reading notes and I think I sound better too. I highly recommend Niki to anyone, at any age, who needs a piano teacher."

"First lesson was amazing. After reading the reviews, I thought she just sounded to good to be true, but her reviews were right on the money. She made me feel comfortable by getting to know who I was as a person not just a paycheck. The little nerves I did have melated away with the little accolades I received for time to time trying to sing. I plan on stick with her for a while, maybe even after I achieve my main goal. I'm definitely not a singer but with her, I think I can get somewhere."

What Other Musicianship Skills Do Singers Need?

Are you a singer who wants to be a more well-rounded musician? Here, Hayward, CA teacher Molly R. shares what you should be working on beyond the necessary vocal techniques...   When you sign up for voice lessons, you have certain expectations about the things you’ll learn: how to breathe, get better high and low notes, etc. You’ll also likely learn more about selecting repertoire, and how to be an effective performer! But… is this enough? Singers often get a bad rap for …
