I’ve been delighted with my lessons with Semyon from day one. I had studied classical piano as a child but took a hiatus of several decades, and was somewhat nervous about starting up again. Semyon has put me at ease, and is so enthusiastic and encouraging, it’s contagious. He also has a focus on technique that I was looking for (scales and Hanon so far, which I know I need!). He knows his stuff but doesn’t overwhelm me with too much too soon. As an adult student, I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice and highly recommend him.
Patricia
As a retiree who has recently returned to piano after a decades-long hiatus, I knew I’d need a teacher with experience teaching adults. Semyon is proving to be excellent. He is a skilled musician and teacher whose approach combines enjoyable piano pieces, exercises for agility and the fundamentals of scales and theory. He is patient and responsive to what I want to accomplish. I have learned in each lesson, seen improvement each week, and enjoy the diversity of assignments. In short, i’m having a grand time and highly recommend him.

Have you always wanted to learn the violin but was afraid to take the first step because it looks difficult? Have you played the violin before and want to pick it back up and make music an integral part of your life? Are you an advanced student who wants to improve your playing in preparation for an audition or performance?

As an experienced teacher of 3 years in violin performance, I can help you improve your violin playing, no matter what your currently level of playing is. Flexibility and comfort is key to my teaching style. I work to your speed and help you improve with specific exercises and advice tailored to your abilities.

I earned my Bachelors degree in violin performance, and an continuing my studies at the Peabody Institute. My past and current teachers include: Irving Ludwig (Philadelphia Orchestra), Juliette Kang (associate concertmaster of Philadelphia Orchestra), and Qing Li (principal 2nd violin of Baltimore Symphony Orchestra).

Awesome teacher, I’ve learnt so much with her and have become a lot more confident. I would definitely recommend her.
Caroline
Julie-Anne is a great singing teacher.
I have done some singing on and off over the years but for several reasons I had completely lost my confidence in my voice and was close to giving up on singing. However, attending Julie-Anne’s ‘Sing to Perform’ course helped me see that I still had the ability to sing and more importantly how much I love it. She creates a safe place where it does not matter if things go wrong with a performance and gives you the confidence to try out different genres. I am now enjoying trying out different songs at home that previously I did not think I could sing.
I am looking forward to attending her next singing workshop or performance course and would encourage anyone who loves to sing to get involved.
Marjorie G.
Julie-Anne is a wonderful instructor for my beginning singer 12yo daughter with no previous singing training. The child wants to sing in musicals and we find that Julie-Anne is a must-have to prepare for auditions and musicals. She is very positive with kids and as a result my child now sings all the time. With her help we also placed in an intermediate-level local choir. She is teaching good warm up technique and voice protection as well. Thank you Julie-Anne!

The "Real World" style. Chords - Riffs - Scales - Songs - Basic Theory - Tabs - which can branch out into song writing and recording techniques. I start out with the basics and then focus on switching - getting your fingers moving/stretching - getting them ready for scales and songs. Different patterns and techniques of picking and strumming. Understanding timing and attention to movement. I don't teach traditional guitar musical notes with staff reading. Guitar Tabs I will teach you and easy exercises. For advanced beginners to intermediate I can proceed with what you need help with next by hearing your goals and what you'd like to cover whether it's more techniques - chords - playing style - song writing - techniques for studio playing.

Why Are Piano Keys Arranged That Way?

When you look at the keys on a piano, a few things pop out right away. First, there are both white and black keys, and second, there is a distinct pattern that the keys on piano repeat. While most modern pianos contain 88 keys, you can find pianos with a shortened range, and even some that increase the number! But why, exactly, are the keys set up like that? We'll explore that in this article. Black and White Keys on Piano Pianos are arranged with white keys for the musical tones of A, B, C …
