I've been playing piano for seven years, I've taken professional lessons myself and I've taken lessons as apart of a class, so I'm experienced with the learning process myself and seeing others go through it. I've created a curriculum with all of these experiences in mind that is sure to set up an excellent foundation for any new student!

About Emani

Hello, I am currently a college student majoring in music education. I've had an interest in music ever since I was in elementary school, playing different instruments, like the viola, guitar and many others. I've stuck to playing piano since my middle school years, which is 7 years.

About Gabriel

I view my role as an educator to be bigger than simply training a performer. I believe in creating a complete musician--one who thinks deeply about music. I accomplish this by working on, yes, the technical aspects of playing an instrument, but also through constant listening, ear-training, theory

With over 4 years of teaching experience, 6 years of gigging and playing the guitar for 14 years, I have cultivated a unique approach to teaching the guitar. I take the time to listen to my students, hear their struggles and dreams and create a lesson plan that is truly individual. I've worked with beginners who've never touched a guitar to professionals looking to broaden their horizons, all ages too! I am a very professional, motivated and flexible teacher looking to help you learn the guitar!

My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Heidi for the past 4months now and I have seen tremendous improvement in her. Heidi has a fantastic knowledge of flute. She super nice, very patient, fun and very encouraging which is key component for kids to continue to learn any instrument they are passionate about. When we started first, my daughter was asked what her goals are and she has been teaching based on that. All her lessons are thorough and everything is documented on skype for future reference. My daughter loves Heidi and she looks forward to her class every single time. I’m lucky to have a teacher like her for my daughter and I would highly recommend her.

"Quickly contextualized my needs as a student, and got me familiar with components and techniques of composition. The goal was to be able to help me more easily communicate ideas and designs to audio engineers at a company I work at. There has been a very observable benefit to this in the expedience of discussions, and fidelity of concept being engineered."

"My daughter has been taking lessons from Nancy for about 5 months. I have been extremely pleased with how much my daughter has learned and how she is continuing to improve. Nancy is patient but continues to challenge her each week. Nancy also organized a recital for all of her students with a reception afterward. Each student was introduced and had the chance to play several pieces. Everything was professionally done and a nice way for the kids to showcase what they have been learning. I would definitely recommend Nancy as a piano teacher."

Vocal Tips: Learning How to Harmonize

It's amazing what you can do with your voice!  Unlike other musicians, as a singer you carry your instrument with you at all times.  The opportunities to practice and perform your art are vast, as well as the ways to experiment with different styles, techniques, and of course, harmonies! Similar to a guitar player plucking one note and then building it into a chord, learning how to harmonize will create that rich, full sound when you're singing with a group or a choir.
