I've only had one lesson with Grant so far and I was totally impressed. He made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease. He listens to you and you can tell he really cares about his students. I would give him the highest marks and can't wait to go for my second lesson.

Daniel B.

Fort Mill, SC

About Daniel

Hi, there! My name is Daniel and I can't wait to meet you! I just love music! I have played the piano since I was 6 years old, and was one of those kids who loved to practice. I am passionate about teaching and love imparting the techniques, wisdom, and practicality that I was taught to my students. I understand that every student learns differently and I cater each lesson to the individual student. I use a combination of fun games, unique teaching techniques, and electronic aids to adequately teach each lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano students should provide an acoustical piano (n
ot a digital). I will provide metronome and any other teaching aides that may be used during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in sacred with a proficiency in hymn improvisation. I also am proficient in classical teaching.

She is brilliant and nice! She have a doctor degree for music from Indiana university.(If you like cello, Janos Starker is one of her teacher when she was in school. If you are sort of person like me who like show out in front of friends, you can say Janos starker is my teacher's teacher! LOL!) She is well qualified for all levels cello players. I took cello class from her. She not only taught me cello techniques, but also music theory which can help to understand cello technique. She always try to teach me how to think and find out the best way for me. Not just show me how she play. I think this is important. I learned so much from her last year! Sadly I have to move back home. Highly recommended for people who want to learn how to play cello!

It is easy to recommend Sue to anyone as she is a fantastic music instructor. She makes learning seem easy, which is the hallmark of a great teacher. You will find her to be extremely friendly and approachable so you never fear making mistakes or asking any questions; her patience is unwavering.

One particularly great thing about Ms. Sue D.'s teaching method is her flexibility with learning material. She took time to review method books I had from a previous teacher, picking songs and exercises she felt would supplement lessons from the books we normally use.

I have found my lessons to be both enjoyable and extremely informative. When we are reviewing the material from the previous week at the beginning of a new lesson I always have the feeling I've made real progression on the instrument.

Joey R.

Charlotte, NC

About Joey

Joey Rincon is a classical and spanish guitarist in the Charlotte and surrounding areas. He is a very friendly and compassionate musician, and is completely immersed in the music world. Naturally, he wants to share his love of music with his students, and his goal is to awaken the musical potential in his students. He's been on a journey with guitar for 15 years. As an instructor, he is gifted in providing inspiration to his students. Technique, expression, repertoire, sight-reading, music theory, and much enthusiasm describe the experience of studying the guitar with Joey.

Joey Rin
con has been honing his technique and artistry on the guitar for 15 years. He was born and raised in New York, where he was first introduced to classical music through the violin. Now, he is a music student of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where he continues on his musical journey as a classical guitarist.

Joey Rincon has studied classical guitar under the mastery of Derek Day at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and Charles Vaughn at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. His playing reflects his Spanish culture and background, while simultaneously being fueled by his unstoppable love for music.

During his studies on the classical guitar, he has worked with the music of Mauro Giuliani, Matteo Carcassi, Francisco Tarrega, J.S Bach, and much, much more. What separates Joey Rincon from other musicians is his unmistakable close attention to small details in music. From studying under masters in the field, Joey Rincon pays special attention to the basic musical components such as melody, rhythm, and harmony, while putting a tremendous amount of effort and thought into his tone production. His musical ideas are an exact reflection to how he views the world around him; a beautiful, adventurous, and emotional reality.

His repertoire is forever expanding, but focuses mostly on the Baroque and Classical Era, and Spanish music, particularly that of Antonio Lauro and Francisco Tárrega. Joey is not limited to the genre of Classical music- his roots are in blues and classic rock, alternative rock, and even metal. However, the enticing sound of the classical guitar has become his primary instrument in the last few years, and performs mostly that genre of music.
