Music is the universal communicator, educator, healer, and conflict mediator.
We naturally expose our children to music to incite awareness and stimulate self-motivational learning practices within. Music, as a hobby or passion, you will discover the connection to other practical disciplines,
such as, science and mathematics.

Mr, Ray's comprehensive 3 step courses.

1. Learn the basics of the music language, reading and writing.

2. COUNTING. keeping time, the ruler of motion in music. 

3. Learn how to create beautiful melodies and syntax of song to discover the process of creativity with a structure toward musical thought.

Also. effective personal practice techniques and the basics of Improvisation and Composition. 

It is well documented that exposing children to music and the creative arts is a prerequisite to fundamental logical thought processes and schematic reasoning.

Music is organic FUN for kids of all the ages! 4 years to 104. Lol

Baltimore, MD

I have been teaching for over 10 years and work with all ages and skill levels. I cater my lessons to meet the individual goals and needs of the student and I strive to give students a strong musical foundation while nurturing their unique musical style and interests.
I believe that strong technique and basic musical knowledge are both important in creating well rounded musicians and am mindful to incorporate both technical skills and music theory into each of my lessons.

About Taryn
I am a University of Hawaii Piano Performance Major with a training emphasis in classical piano. I have taken multiple AMEB piano examinations, as well as performed in various recitals, culminating in an undergraduate music certification. I have been playing for 20 years, working with a variety of musical and performance styles, including individual performance, accompaniment, and musical collaboration. These experiences have given me the skills to tackle and communicate musical themes and ideas to students with a range of learning styles and needs, from beginning to advanced, classical to leisure.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very dependent upon the need of the individual student. I believe that each person learns differently, and different people require unique methods of communication (visual, aural, descriptive), as
well as structure of classes. In addition, I understand that students are hoping to gain different things from learning any instrument. Given this, I really try to cater to what a student wants, and how they learn best. However, I also believe that no student can learn and advance without an understanding of theory and development of technique. I generally use the Piano Adventures curriculum with my beginning students, however for intermediate and advanced students, I prefer to allow more freedom in the pieces that are learned. While studying with me, you can expect to develop technique through the study of classical music, gain an advanced understanding of music theory, and develop the ability to not only play well, but to perform well too!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Yamaha piano in common area w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide the piano or keyboard for practicing. The students should be responsible for getting the proper music books necessary for teaching.

*** Specialties ***
The genre I am most experience with is classical music.

I teach beginning and intermidiate piano with the Alfred's method which is a lot of fun and includes an orchestral play along CD, plus I teach ALL my students the Circle Of Fifths which is all about our major scales. You will learn how to write all the key signatures in the major scales. When you learn all your scales you will receive a very elegant reward!! Then as time moves on I will teach you at the intermediate level. I also teach my students how to play chords and how to transpose from one key to another. We have a lot of fun . You don't have t be a concert pianist to sound really good with my techniques!

About Dr. Jeanne
*Hi and welcome!!

My students like to call me Dr. Jeanne, so feel free to do the same! I have been in music all my life and I love helping my students no matter what level they may be.from beginning to advanced. My experience in music started on stage at age three and by the time I was 21 I was singing and dancing on national television in many variety tv shows after having won the tittle of Miss Memphis. I studied music at Stephens College in Columbia, MO and the University of California in music andI have since taught hundreds of voice and piano students everything I know about music and performance. Piano is a joy to teach, but my greatest love is teaching voice .I specialize in all styles of music as long as I feel it is musical, developmental and expressive.. Music takes time and discipline to master and I'm looking forward t
o meeting you and hearing all about your goals and dreams in music and how I can help you along your path.

I mentioned to Gregory specifically I wanted to learn, which was GarageBand for iPad. He told me he taught middle schoolers and to book with him. I asked for more specificity on could he teach this exact thing, to make sure there was no confusion (please check the conversation he and I had within the takelessons website) and he kept saying book with me. I did.

He may know a thing or two about GarageBand (I don't know that for sure), but he knew very little about iPad GarageBand. It was a complete waste of my time. In text messages I said to him that I would not give him a bad review, but I was going to ask for a refund. He said thank you for not leaving a bad review. But then he wouldn't allow refund. Good God!

So here we are. He wasted 2.5 hours of my time, cost me parking in the city, didn't teach me literally anything, and he wouldn't give up the 50 bucks

All that said, now here I am having to take more of my time that could be used for productive purposes, to have to write a bad review. He really deserves this.

Very nice. It would have been better if I knew what books to purchase ahead of time. To maximize the lesson time, teacher should send expectations and tips for success to students ahead so preparation can take place. Be sure to have your own equipment too.

My lessons are designed to provide students with a foundation that not only carries over to each new piece of music, but also manifests in the individual. Through Ear Training, Theory, Piano Pedagogy and Sight Reading my students will learn to trust the quality and not just the quantity of what they know.

About Justin
Hello^^ My name is Justin. I studied Music Composition and Piano at Towson University, and I've been teaching for over Nine years. A few things I would like you to know about me are that I love video games, cartoons, and movies. I especially love the music found in them. Teaching, for me, is a way to learn. If something doesn't make sense we must figure out what's going on inside the mind. By discovering the best way for a student to learn or how a student learns best, already, we have a gateway to endless potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
-Fun and engaging

-Customized to how your brain learns. One size does not fit all when it comes to education!

-Keyboard Memorization, Sight Reading, Singing, Posture, and Technique

-Theory and Harmony

-Compose and perform your own Music!

-Free Interpretation and Artistic Deve
lopment

A typical lesson with me will have us tackling a number of music fundamentals and general technique. My goal is to teach you HOW to learn, as well as what to learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio consists of a separate fully furnished room with an acoustic upright piano.

*** Specialties ***
The only general method that I use is teaching basic singing to help develop a strong sense of relative pitch. I specialize in teaching Classical and classical hybrid musics including video game scores, and movie scores.

When our daughter said she wanted to take piano lessons, we checked out several instructors in various teaching settings. We feel very fortunate to have found Justin for our 10yr young daughter's first piano lessons! His approach with her has invited her to want to learn and do well. He selected just the right books for her lessons and is also helping her learn a song she wants to play from one of her favorite bands. This keeps her engaged with other aspects of skill building and music reading! He also wrote out a clear description of what she is to include in home practice sessions. We definitely recommend Justin.

My classes consist on learning the basics of playing piano. We will go through some music theory to be able to read and understand a piano score; with simple exercises, students will practice playing with one hand at a time, and then playing with both hands at the same time. We will also practice and learn how to play different chords and their inversions. Scales are also very important to play very well from the beginning. With these components, you will get a solid start to keep improving and playing better and better each time.

About Norma
Hi! My name is Norma. I was born in Bogota, Colombia. I fell in love with music when I was a little girl, so I began taking music lessons when I was 8 years old. First, I took violin lessons, and after four years decided to switch to the piano.
I also loved to sing. So I took piano lessons and singing lessons at the same time, and after a while I dedicated myself completely to singing. After that I graduated from my music school with a degree in vocal technique.
I have sung in several venues in Colombia and in the US. as a solo artist and as a band member as well.
I also worked at the School of Rock in Coral Springs, Florida for four years, which gave me much more experience with rock music and teaching kids of all ages.
I really hope I can help you reach your goals, and to love music the same way I do.

I teach children, teens, and adults using a variety of music and and methods. I teach keyboard harmony and music theory, as well as by _ear_. I'll happily answer your questions.

I am patient and accomodating to my students. I draw on a diverse body of repretoire and experience.

Exactly what I teach, and how quickly we progress varies from student-to-student.

I have a B.M. degree in Music Technology.

About Sean
Anyone can sound great on a piano! Let me show you how.

I am a gentle and patient teacher. My students like me.
I have experience with _all_ ages, including little children, older children, pre-teens, teens, young adults, and older.

When I started teaching, I assumed that many beginners -- especially children -- would prefer to learn music by-ear. Based on my own personal experience as a child learning piano, I found that to be the easiest, most-intuitive, and rewarding way to develop musically.

However, in my more recent experience as a _teacher_, I appreciate how every student is unique and will learn best in different ways, using different approaches and methods. Some of the children I have taught, for example, demonstrated a propensity and affinity for visual pattern recognition. Some children seem to be more engaged when t
hey have something to read. It holds their attention. Also, after the lesson is over, my student would have something to reference throughout the week to remember what notes to play.

I have taught a variety of adults, teens, and children over the past two years. I have a B.M. degree in Music and Technology. Myself, I have played piano (and other keyboard instruments) for over 20 years.

One approach I can take with adult students is to help them achieve a musical sophistication and richness without complexity and great difficulty. Being able to create music that is enjoyable to listen to isn't as hard as some might assume. Please contact me to show you how.

I teach a variety of music -- "Classical" (formal European compositions), Rock/Pop, Modal/Impressionistic (which might strike some listeners as Jazz-influenced Jazz-flavoured) music.
I been working on writing many transcriptions of my favourite songs/compositions. I'd love to share these with you and teach you how to play some of that music!
I'll teach you your favorite songs, that _you_ like best. I've done exactly that for several of my students.

To mention that my family knows Mrs. Ann Keen for over 10 years. We happened to know Ms. Ann from the NIST Child Care Center because she worked as a preschool teacher with both of my kids. Being a wonderful teacher my kids keep in touch with her. They absolutely loved her. My daughter started taking piano lessons with Ms. Ann when she was 4.5years old.
