I have been teaching beginning piano for the last few years. I enjoy helping students to get started on the piano with correct position, music that is fun and beginning theory/sight reading.

About Nicole

As a voice teacher and voice coach, I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me, singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you. It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something en

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.

"Julie has honestly changed my mindset about the flute. She has helped me improve tremendously and I have thoroughly enjoyed lessons and learning with her. I am in 7th grade and play at school in a large band. The individual teaching has helped me in so many ways. She helped boost my confidence in playing the flute and on sight reading music pieces. I was struggling coming into class, but even after the first couple of classes the improvement was amazing. Julie has helped me correct some of my bad habits. She has not only taught me almost everything I know, she has taught me how to do my own independent work as well. I am always very comfortable asking any question I have. As well as teaching me how to play the flute, Julie has taught me about music. When I play pieces, often she will show me a video of a huge group playing it. We also play many duets with her on flute or piano which is not only fun but very educational in my flute development. She is also very flexible and friendly. I 120% recommend her for any age or instrument. Julie is challenging, yet fun. She is an amazing musician and teacher and I can't thank her enough!"

The Anatomy of a Hit Pop Song [Infographic]

When you're learning how to write a song, looking at how other songs are structured can be a great place to start. Like looking at a map before you go on a roadtrip, checking out the basic elements of songs you love gives you a sense of how they were written and what you need to do to write a song of your own. If analyzing all your favorite songs sounds like a daunting task (it is), you're in luck. The Billboard Experiment wanted to know if there was a formula that could determine which songs …
