I have experience working with beginners and advanced singers. I work with the "Functional Voice Method" which aims to develop a free and comfortable voice technique that can be applied to any music, from jazz or rock to classical.

Each lesson will include exercises focused on your voice technique and work with repertoire as well.

I am a professional singer, guitarist and voice teacher with more than 10 years of experience.

I do a variety of styles in music for the violin. I use whatever method (book or teaching style) is needed to teach what the student needs to learn. I have been teaching violin for 25 years. Depending on age, we will start in either Essential Elements or Suzuki. All beginners will start the bow after they can read the first 8 notes. All intermediates will be able to play 2 octave scales from 3 sharps to 3 flats as well as well into Wolfhart book 1. They will also be able to shift into third position cleanly and will be starting on vibrato. For Advanced players, we will be working on Concertos, sonatas, and partitas if they wish to go classical. IF they wish other styles, we will have started that in intermediate. All students will have an opportunity to go through the music development program, if they are interested.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

Received my first masters degree at the Peabody Conservatory, majoring in Vocal Accompanying with a Bachelor's of Music in classical Piano Performance. Experienced teacher of 8 years, specializing in beginner/intermediate level. All ages are welcome!

I’ve spent a lot of my life struggling through basic piano, and I had no idea why it was so challenging for me! In my very first lesson with Natasha, she helped me overcome obstacles I was completely unaware of. She is a skilled musician with a natural instinct for teaching. She is patient, kind, and extremely thorough.
David
Natasha was a wonderful piano teacher for my daughter! She was always thoughtful and came up with useful practice techniques that helped her improve very quickly. I highly recommend her to anyone!
Jennifer
Natasha is a wonderful piano teacher to my son. I love how much she wants my son to grow within each lesson. She focuses on scales for his technique and is very organized in terms of setting goals for each piece my son has for the week. Highly recommend her for any level of piano, especially for beginners!

I am a Broadway musical director and pianist with over 15 years of experience, looking to start teaching piano. When I was young and first learning piano, I practiced a lot more when I was interested in and excited about the material I was being given. My goal is to meet you where you are and get you where you want to go, keeping you engaged every step of the way.

Are you brand new and learning to read music for the first time? Are you more advanced and looking to push yourself with new material and professional feedback? Maybe you always wanted to know what those chord symbols mean? Are you looking to accompany yourself when you sing? Is there a song you've loved for years and wanted to be able to play? I'm happy to focus on all aspects of music, from theory and technique, to performance and professionalism.

I am open to all ages and backgrounds. I suggest starting with a consultation to assess your current skill set and goals, and if we gel we can proceed forward.
