Peter is an outstanding instructor! He has a nice space for teaching and works to understand where the student is starting from - making sure to emphasize a base of fundamentals that will see you through for the rest of your piping career. I highly recommend him!
Amy
Peter is very patient and exceptionally knowledgeable. He is very analytical in his teaching. I am a new student (only a few lessons) and I am confident he will be able to provide the critical but positive instruction and encouragement that I need. His enthusiasm and passion for music is contagious. In fact, he gives detailed oral histories and music theory explanations related to the topic of the lesson. Most teachers boot you out when time is up - not Peter - he always finishes on the right note. Plus he has an adorable cat assistant, Rory, as a side kick.

Hey everyone! My name is Sam Stout, and I am currently a trumpet performance student at the Peabody Conservatory. My primary teachers are Tony Prisk, second trumpet of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Billy Hunter, principal trumpet of the MET Opera Orchestra. I have also taken lessons from Andrew Balio (principal of the Baltimore Symphony), David Bilger (principal of the Philadelphia Orchestra), and Tom Hooten (principal of the LA Phil). Over these past few years, I have a developed a deeper and more accurate understanding of the fundamentals of the trumpet and what is the proper way of learning the instrument.

What I enjoy about learning and performing as a trumpet player is that you always have to solve problems but with the pursuit of creating beauty. Although it can be frustrating to experience problems in our playing, solving those problems is highly fulfilling as a student and teacher. If you decide to study with me, I will be fully dedicated to solving your individual needs.

About Sam

At this point, I am teaching beginner students mostly those starting in middle school/early high school although I am open to teach any age. My number one priority is improvement but also making sure learning the trumpet is fun. I believe the best way to learn and teach is through encouragement, re

I have taught all levels, using the methods of Giuliani, Carcassi and Sor. Also I encourage my students to develop a basic repertoire for performance, a knowledge of theory and fundamentals.

About Juan

He draws from his experience as a recording and touring rock guitarist in Colombia and Miami, his studies of East Asian music, inspired by interacti

Juan is wonderful and very knowledgeable in music. He is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. I leave a lesson feeling like I am accomplished and relaxed. It nice to see progress in such a little time. I go home with enthusiasm to learn more and want practice to do so.
Chrystine R.
With a patient and intuitive approach, Juan tailors each lesson to fit not only the student’s skill level, but also desire for depth of understanding. When I first began taking lessons, I was only able to plunk a few chords and play along with a few basic songs. However, over the course of a year and a half with Juan, I gained a foundational knowledge of the classical guitar, as well as the confidence to site read and play a range of other styles of guitar music. He seamlessly integrated music theory concepts into song studies, helping me learn major/minor scales and chord shapes, and then apply this knowledge to better understand song structures and composition. It has been such a great experience learning from Juan, especially because he is both an exemplary teacher and guitar player!
Dionne T.
Juan is awesome. He makes learning guitar easy and never complicates it .. and makes it fun. He's a great teacher.

I am experienced in playing bass in a variety of genres and ensembles (i.e. jazz, bluegrass, jam/rock, country, pop). My primary focus is to give students a strong foundation in rhythm, harmony, and familiarity with the instrument. I want to encourage innovation and creativity in each of my students so they can feel comfortable approaching any musical opportunity or setting.

Hello,
Jordi is an outstanding teacher. He is patient and understanding at the same time. I never feel rushed or unprepared when we meet. Jordi has a relaxed, yet professional way of teaching. I have grown to love my cello more because Jordi helps you develop an appreciation for your instrument. I cannot say enough good things about my instructor; I believe he is the best.

Jordi does a great job giving me very specific instruction on how to play this challenging but beautiful instrument! I'm an adult learner and playing the cello was on my bucket list so I really appreciate Jordi's patience and enthusiasm. My New Year's resolution is to keep practicing and to continue to enjoy my new skills.

"I've had the pleasure of learning from a couple of good teachers in my time. These were instructors with a clear fervor for music and a deft hand at instruction. Then there's Jared. With a calm and joyful persistence, one that not only holds onto an organic passion for music but one that also understands the unique challenges of the pupil, he guides the student through inevitable missteps and atonal chaos with a firm grace. His warmth and humor, coupled with a serious depth of music knowledge, are a must for the aspiring musician or the hobbyist. Whether your aims include songwriting, composition, or just plucking away in the garage, Jared's bespoke formula works. And, it's a joy while one partakes.

Best medicine I ever had!"
