About Danilo
Danilo is a multi-instrumentalist originally from Long Island, New York and currently based in Rhode Island. He has maintained an active and successful performing career as a member of the groups David Wax Museum, Debo Band, The Superpowers, Rubblebucket, Full Tang and Watchout Kompa.

Danilo studied classical trumpet performance at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA with members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (Peter Chapman, Steve Emery) as well as percussion and drums with other esteemed faculty members (Rakalam Bob Moses, Jamey Haddad). In addition to his conservatory training, Danilo has studied traditional West African drumming at the Dagbe Cultural Center in Kopeyia, Ghana.

Danilo has performed at many of the premier venues and festivals throughout North America including: Bonnaroo, New Orleans Jazz Festi
val, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Bumbershoot, Montreal Jazz Festival, Montana Folk Festival, Globalfest, SXSW and Luminato.

Education has long been a passion for Danilo and he has been teaching private music lessons as well as instruction in the Boston public schools for years. Danilo teaches all levels and ages. His students value his patience and ability to find an inspiring path to discovery for each individual. Danilo has also shown himself to be very effective in the classroom setting. He has been a general music teacher in the Boston Public School system as well as teaching master classes and clinics at music schools and universities around the country.

In January 2014, Danilo was invited as a guest artist and educator at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul where he taught and performed for young afghan music students.

Danilo considers his success as a performer to be in a direct relationship with the success of his teaching and he aims to spread to the joy of music making and appreciation as wide as possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is relaxed and supportive while always aiming to increase the knowledge of the student. My strong technical background combined with a deep sense for wide-ranging musical styles allows me to find what inspires a student initially, and use their interests and strengths to lead them to new discovery and technical efficiency.

Private study covers technical aspects of the instrument, including body awareness as well as reading, theory and musical expression and improvisation.

While each individual learns at a different pace, I strive to point out the progress my students have made because I find this recognition of achievement, no matter how small, is essential in a student's continued love of studying music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in dedicated music room with all instruments and equipment; upright piano, drum set and percussion.

Danilo is a really great drum teacher. Challenging, but also meets you at what ever level you're at. When limbs don't know how to rally together for a new thing, he's a very good cheerleader until it comes together or helps make it make sense to break through that wall. Enjoys good music too. Super recommend.

With techniques handed down through a descent of Frédéric Chopin, Pop performance with J. Michael O'Neal, and personal experience with people, I have created my own system of piano lessons!

About Danielle
My name is Danielle. I have been playing the piano since I was 5 years of age. I may be young but I am very passionate about music and would like to teach anyone who is interested in learning. I teach classical, pop, funk, and even a little jazz. I work with all ages and all levels. I am a very patient individual when it comes to teaching. I like to build a relationship with my students to enhance the learning experience. Hope to teach you soon.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether its piano or ukulele I like to involve basic music theory, technique and fun games! If you're 4 or 65 I like to make music a fun learning experience. Many of my students have come to me after taking lessons with a previous teacher who has either completely abandoned them, was very mean, or never fully explained to them basic music skills. I love to go int
o detail but I'm very passionate about music so no matter what I can make it interesting.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Resources to books.

*** Specialties ***
I teach beginning/intermediate piano, voice, ukulele, and music theory from ages 4 and older.

With over 10 years of teaching experience, and 25 years of playing experience, you're in capable hands to learn it all from the basics to the classics! I have a bachelor's degree in music, and an unquenchable passion for teaching!

About Rebekah
With a degree in classical voice and over 10 years of teaching experience, I can help you reach your musical goals! Using proven methods, you can learn the techniques necessary to sing like the pros or make the ivory keys of your piano dance!

My teaching style would be best described as fun and flexible. I'm a total stickler for proper technique and classical learning theory, but I also give my students the power to choose what repertoire they work on. I often tell my pupils, "I don't really care what you're playing or singing, as long as you focus on the fundamentals learned in lessons". I believe students will practice music they like, so I encourage them to pick songs they enjoy hearing. The concept that purposeful learning can be achieved using almost any repertoire is at the core of my teaching philosophy.

As my piano student, you will learn so much! I do not work from traditional "cookie cutter" methods; each lesson is customized to take advantage of your own unique interests and abilities. Even if you are just starting out, you will quickly move beyond basic note reading to mastering popular sheet music by your favorite artists in your favorite genres. You will also have the opportunity to explore vocal accompaniment, improvisation, and/or playing the real piano parts along with recordings of your favorite songs. I hold a B.M. degree from Berklee College of Music and I have been teaching piano and performing throughout southern New England for more than three decades. I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and dreams on the piano!

About Stan
Hi! I am a private music instructor offering lessons both in-studio and online. I hold a Bachelor of Music Degree from Berklee College of Music (Summa cum Laude) and I have over 36 years' full-time experience as an instructor.

I also have over four decades of experience as a professional jazz, rock, and theater musician. My experience has taken me from nightclubs to concert stages, as well as television studios, radio stations, and many recording studios.

Finally, I am a published author with several titles dedicated to helping musicians becoming the best they can be.

**** MY TEACHING STYLE ****

My teaching style is often referred to as laid-back, gentle, informative, and very supportive. My focus is on enrichment, encouragement, and results.

I don't work with “one-size-fits-all” methods. Each lesson is customized to mak
e the most of each student's own unique abilities, limitations, preferences, and interests. Whether students prefer, or do better with, traditional materials, playing/singing along with their favorite recordings, improvisation, or anything in between, I am more than happy to accommodate and bring out each student’s best!

I teach real music -- students begin playing music they love almost from day-one. For example, many of my piano and guitar students pride themselves on learning to play every song on the Beatles One album ... playing right along with the CD! Reading, playing by ear, improvisation (jamming), singing while you play ... there are so many ways to play and avenues to explore in music.

**** MY STUDIO ****

My studio is spacious (very spacious – no cubicles here!), well-appointed, and very quiet. Unlike music stores and multi-lesson facilities, there are no other lessons on the premises, no drummers going crazy on the other side of the wall. This means students can concentrate better and learn faster. There is also plenty of room for parents and siblings who may wish to sit in on lessons.

**** STYLES / GENRES ****

I believe that students make the most progress learning music they love and I am very happy to teach every student the style of music he or she loves most.

My most requested genres are: pop, rock, country, blues, classic rock, jazz, and classical. Some students arrive knowing exactly what they want, but most are happy to explore various styles that interest them in search of the perfect fit. It is not at all uncommon for a student to spend part of their lesson polishing up a Beethoven piece or jazz standard, then finish up playing the chords to “Hotel California” along with the CD. Another student might start off their lesson learning a Taylor Swift hit, then move over to doing some blues improvisation. Variety is a wonderful thing and it is highly encouraged!

**** MY STUDENTS ****

Over the years, I have taught students from four years old to eighty-somethings. I’ve taught absolute beginners (most of my students start from square-one), hobbyists, seasoned professionals, even a Grammy nominee and a Grammy winner! Many of my young students have gone on to perform in school bands / jazz bands and/or professionally. In all cases, they acquire a skill that will last for a lifetime and provide joy, enrichment, and satisfaction.

Do you have a song or two in your heart. Contact me today and I will help you reach your musical goals and have a good time doing it!

Hi! First, I will ask for your experience not only with piano but with music. We will work on posture, playing technique and reading. Because of my tutelage, my default material for beginners is Suzuki Book 1 which you can either purchase yourself or I can bring one for you. If you have other music material that you would like to work on, I am happy to use that instead. Then I will assign you homework which you will need to practice on your own in preparation for then next lesson.

About Charlotte
Hi! I am currently a student at University of San Francisco studying Biology and Neuroscience. I began studying piano when I was 4 through the Suzuki method and started teaching when I moved to San Francisco to start school. I am dedicated to the Suzuki method and believe in it. When I take on a student, I want them to accomplish their goals but will require that they practice and prepare for each lesson. With practicing done, we can work on and hone your skill together and (I hope) develop a love for music and an instrument I hold very dear.

Fun while learning amazing tricks to playing piano! I've taught people from 3 to 93 and everyone enjoys themselves! My experience in teaching beginners all the way to expert has been a result of many years of training and teaching. I want people to enjoy music and realize how it can help them in SO many ways! It's stimulating! It's relaxing! It's SO good for the brain! I guarantee you'll have fun while learning. And I have lots of secrets to share about piano, composers and tricks to playing difficult pieces!

About Candace
Do you want to have fun? AND learn piano? Then I am the piano teacher for YOU! I've learned tricks of the trade, secrets of playing (that I'll only share with my students) and have lots of great ideas of how to help you achieve your goals.

The process of learning to play piano, or continuing to improve your skills, can be just as much fun as the end result!

We've all read how good for the brain playing piano is...using left and right sides...concrete and abstract...but let's not forget the FUN factor! I'm lucky to be able to do what I do and I can help you be so lucky, too!

I took piano lessons for 19 years and can play (and teach) classical, pop, rock, jazz, theory and composition. I've been teaching piano to students from 3 years old to 85 and they've all enjoyed themselves.

I've also had quite a bit of experience in teach
ing people with a variety of special needs. There is so much benefit to learning and playing the piano for all of us, but you can only imagine how great it is for people who have special needs.

Teaching piano is my passion and I'm excited to share it with everyone.

I started lessons with Candy in early elementary school and continued through high school. The skills I learned in piano lessons were foundational for all my music skills as I later learned to play the flute, and majored in voice in college. After 13 years as a professional music educator myself I know that the skills learned at Candy’s piano, both musical skills and teaching technique were formative for me professionally and personally. She is positive, patient, encouraging and committed to determining the learning styles of her student. Given the option, I would give her more than 5 stars.

Candy is sweet as sweet can be! She has always been so patient with my daughter who has some physical limitations as well as sensory issues. When time came for the recital, Candy gave her the confidence she needed to get up and play in front of all those people. My daughter won't ever play piano with me she, but always enjoys going to play with Miss Candy!

Over the almost three years that I have been taking lessons with Candy, I have learned many new things about playing piano. She always makes it a positive experience and not only has me play the songs from the book, but also lets me learn some songs that I choose. Also, she is funny and always makes me laugh. Overall I would rate Candy 5 stars without question.

I have a Bachelors of arts degree with a focus in Vocal. This will be my first year giving private lessons. I have student taught in a high school and middle school for a year an half in college.
I have been taking piano lessons since I was a freshman in college and vocal lessons since I was 11 years old.
My schedule is very flexible. I encourage students to do sports or other activities while taking lessons. I understand that sometimes schedules change last minute.

About Holly

Playing the piano is super fun, and the learning process can be enjoyable and painless. I have years of experience teaching the piano to kids of all ages, primarily elementary and middle schoolers. I like to make each lesson plan unique to the student's needs, and you can pick what pieces you want to learn! Since I went through the private lesson process myself, I am well versed in the techniques teachers employ and can teach all levels of proficiency. I have accumulated an extensive repertoire, won numerous competitions, and played at Carnegie Hall. I can help you build a solid foundation in technique, music theory, and sight-reading so that you can play all your favorite songs!

About Angela
I am an enthusiastic college student that is hoping to share my love and passion for music! I have played the piano (and the flute) for fourteen years, and have given private lessons to kids in my neighborhood for the past few years. I am excited to work with people of all ages who are eager to learn more about music, regardless of your level of proficiency. I can help a beginner learn their way around a keyboard and music theory, or help a more advanced student develop their technique. I am classically trained, which really is useful in developing a solid foundation. I am willing to travel to your location and make the music creating process as fun and easy as possible! I look forward to hearing from you!
