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.

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.

"John is a very knowledgeable, patient and professional teacher for my 7 year old beginner who is taking piano lessons with him. When my child has difficulty with a particular technique or lesson, John always tries to come up with different ways to explain it until she has a better handle in the area of difficulty. My daughter says, "Mr. John is very nice and plays the piano really good." Most private teachers watch the clock, but there have been numerous times John has stayed beyond his time to finish explaining something and making sure my daughter understands. I would definitely recommend John as a teacher for anyone considering lessons for any level student."

"If you are tired of guitar teachers who half-try through a song a week leaving you constantly learning new material but somehow never making any progress...stop. You are not doing yourself any favors. What you need is a teacher like David who actually gives a care about your playing and has the ability to break down your technique and give you an analysis of what you need to become a better player. With the benefit of David's coaching, I have made changes to my form and finger placement for the better. These are the hard changes in ingrained habits I needed to make to take my playing to the next level.

I would also encourage you to take advantage of David's expertise as an engineer if you are his student. He has recorded many bands and is very generous with his home studio for his students. The ability to record without the pressure of "being in the studio" is huge. Even if you do not currently have plans to record, the experience of playing in front of a microphone is very educational and listening to the subsequent recording is a great learning tool.

Taking lessons are pointless if both sides are not engaged. David is a rare guitar teacher who is committed to the growth of every student. If you are similarly committed to your own growth, I can't think of a better teacher for you to study the guitar with."

5 Maintenance Tips for Violin Bows

All musical instruments require attention and maintenance. When it comes to the violin, however, it is easy to forget that the bow needs as much care as the instrument itself. After all, the way you treat your violin bows will affect the way the violin sounds. If too much resin builds up on the hairs, for example, the sound will come out wrong. While it may not be as costly to repair or replace violin bows, why waste money when it’s easy to keep your violin bows in good working condition? …
