I have been incorporating theory into the lessons for the 25 plus years I've been teaching. It's an integral part of learning each piece and additional books can be used to reinforce new concepts if needed.

I've been teaching violin for 14 years and my students have gone on to win top prizes at the Solo & Ensemble Festival, featured soloists, and become music majors! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few songs and read music, and as time goes on you'll be able to develop a beautiful tone! I typically use the Suzuki books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: audio recordings, and an extensive music library. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Robert was nervous for his first lesson. Annie’s teaching style set him at ease very quickly. She was clear and concise with her instructions. Very hands on as needed: adjustment of violin, bow , hand and arm placement,etc. I, as Robert’s parent, was very impressed with Annie.
Debbie Madigan
Annie is a wonderful piano instructor. She is very patient and makes you feel comfortable and confident as you attempt new challenges.

Gina’s wonderfully encouraging and is helping me take the skills I already have and fine tuning them. She’ll listen to me sing a song the whole way through and then we’ll go back and work on specific sections. She gives good pointers and can give me vocal exercises to try to fix a specific problem. I like that we use YouTube karaoke videos because I can choose any song with a karaoke version and I can use the same video to practice at home as I do with her.

A wonderful person and fabulous singer! Gina is incredibly talented and super helpful, kind and encouraging to kids! Highly recommended!

Charlie is the most patient and musical music teacher I have ever experienced and I am old! His approach to teaching is first rate. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all forms of music.
Larry B
This guy is incredible. He creates a safe space where you feel inspired to improvise and experiment with music. He showed me songs that changed my music taste and playing style completely. The best part of learning with him is that it feels like you are jamming with a good friend. He not only is an incredible musician but also a great mentor. I have only good things to say about Charlie
Kevin
Charlie McClaren is one of the greatest music teachers I've ever had. Learning music with him never felt like a chore, rather it was a journey we shared. He's patient and understanding, but he'll make sure you understand the music thoroughly. He showed me that music was more than an art form, it's a lens you see the world through. I can't recommend Charlie enough, no matter where you are on your musical journey, he'll take you to the next level!
