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 Peter
I am a student of various great drum teachers from many backgrounds. Experienced players enjoy jamming with me, but I have been told that I am especially gifted at helping beginners feel comfortable finding rhythms and sounds out of any instrument, including the human body. Rhythmic breathing is made simple and encouraged from the start. Tones and drum patterns can be explained verbally or written mathematically. Students remember the patterns forever, as well as gaining comfort in playing with other drummers or instruments. Odd time signatures or complicated songs can be tackled and easily learned. Use any drum or percussion instrument you have! Recordings are encouraged if you like!

Peter grew up in Chicago, raised to love soulful music. A graduate of Northwestern University's Performance Studies program with a focus on Theatre and
Media Arts, Public Speaking, and Ethnology. Designing percussion for stage and dance lead to studies and teaching of North and West African, Middle Eastern drum, Caribbean/South American and Asian drum and percussion rhythms. First hand experience has been gained by living in Morocco and South Korea for nearly a year each, studying and documenting folk music.

About Ari
Hello there! My name is Ari, and I am a MA in Government graduate student living in Marblehead. I have been tutoring for 8+ years and working in education/childcare generally for about 10 years. I have worked with kids of all ages (elementary to college) in all major subjects and several specialties.

I have worked with individuals with several types of learning, social, and emotional complications. I have worked with several learning styles and therein take an adaptive teaching approach. I see tutoring as not pure pedantry, but a constructive process whereby the student, the student's parent(s) (if involved) and myself regularly discuss the style of the tutoring sessions as well as the student's study habits as appropriate by age.

Ari is Awesome! My daughter is about to turn 14, and has been having a lot of trouble getting history to "stick". She likes mythology and ancient history, but anything after the Fall of Rome - forget it! In one ear and out the other!
Enter Ari - he's totally turned that frown upside down! She's actually excited about the stuff they talk about, and she feels confident that she'll be caught up and ready to move into high school with some strength in history, instead of dread! In fact, she's even talking about trying for honors history!!
Ari is enthusiastic and engaging, and motivating! YAY!

Hannah was the music director at the Scotch Ridge Presbyterian Church in Carlisle, Iowa for the past three years, and was a wonderful addition to our congregation! I serve as the pastor of that church, and was always impressed with Hannah's ability to help not only plan the music for worship - this include weekly hymn selections - but also her incredible singing voice and vocal range. She will be missed dearly, and I do not hesitate in the least to recommend her expertise and skills in teaching.
