About Ryanne
I am a freelance trumpet player, studio teacher, and arts administrator in the Greater Boston Area. As a trumpet player, I typically perform in weddings, religious services, orchestras, musicals, and recording projects. As an arts administrator, I am the general manager of Symphony Nova, a Boston-based fellowship orchestra.

Growing up, I lived in southern Connecticut. I studied Performance and Music Education at Ithaca College in central New York, and finished my degree abroad in Vienna, Austria. From there, I moved to Boston (the day before Snowpocalypse) and studied Trumpet Performance at The Boston Conservatory.

I aspire to perform and teach my entire career and one day own a Boston-area apartment big enough for a dog.

About Alexander
My name is Alexander, a recent graduate of The Boston Conservatory M.M. in Cello Performance program. I love teaching students of all ages and abilities the joys of practicing, playing, and performing on the cello. I am an avid performer of solo, orchestral, and chamber music. I spent the final year of my undergraduate studies researching ways to more effectively teach chamber music.

My teaching philosophy puts a strong emphasis on mindfulness, which results in superb technical development and allows the student to make their musical mark on the works they perform. I encourage all students to engage in music making beyond the practice room and share the gifts they have. I realize that many students begin playing instruments during formative times in their lives. Through their musical journey, students learn much about themselves, and t
heir lessons help them to gain confidence in who they are. I look forward to mentoring this journey.

Alexander has been teaching my 13 year old son cello for the past 8 months. He is by far the best instructor we have ever had. He is the perfect blend of patient, understanding, encouraging, and talented. I love that he praises what is done well and corrects what needs more work. There isn't anyone that I would trust with my child's musical education more than Alexander.

Alexander was excellent with my 9 year old, and in his first lesson managed to engage my son fully with the "nitty gritty" of technique necessary to a successful start playing the cello. We look forward to the next lesson!

About Inna
Hello, and thank you for your interest!

My name is Inna, I'm a jazz and world vocalist, pianist and composer.

I come from family of musicians, and I have started exploring music since the age of 5. In addition to my classical studies in Russia, I won the only full tuition scholarship to study in famous Berklee College of Music in the competition that took place during Berklee Asia Scholarship Tour in 2010.

In Berklee I was deeply influenced and moved by Eastern European and Middle Eastern music, which lead to experimentations in fusing those genres with modal jazz and then later rock.

I studied Vocal Performance, and Contemporary Writing and Production, and I have over a decade of experience in teaching, and performing, so I look forward to working with you to develop your voice, piano, and composing/arranging skills!

Cur
rently I teach from my home studio in Boston, and I'm also available to come to your location.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Nathan
I'm Nate!

Music has been a huge part of my life since I was a kid. I started drum lessons when I was in second grade and eventually switched to learning bass in seventh grade. I've been playing bass ever since (so for about ten years now).

In high school, I studied music extensively and worked one-on-one with many of my teachers to gain a better understanding of the subject.

In 2012, I was accepted for Jazz bass performance at UMass Amherst back. After a semester of intense music study, I switched majors and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a focus in Software Engineering.

In high school and in college, I tutored students via an online tutoring portal (similar to TakeLessons). Subjects I've tutored in include 5th grade and 7th grade mathematics, as well as college level music theory.

I look forwar
d to meeting you and learning what it is exactly you wish to improve. I'll do everything I can to help you achieve that goal and hopefully have fun doing it!

As I would teach these lessons, my professor would give me feedback on the progress of my students. During this time I also had the pleasure of playing in the Odysseus North Texas chamber Orchestra which one third place in the orchestral division of the national "American Prize" competition.
