I instruct in the Scottish style of fiddling, with a rounded approach, including introductions to the Cape Breton, Highland, Grand Northeast, and Shetland regional styles.

About Peter

I am a traditional Scottish musician specializing in 18th century music. I have studied Highland bag piping since 2001 and Scottish Fiddling since 2002 (with a background in classical violin). I teach both Scottish Fiddle and Highland Bagpipes, as well as Scottish Small pipes and Border pipes. I

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.

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

Played bass in contemporary worship band. Experienced in teaching rock, blues, jazz, etc.

About Geoff

I played on a toy piano when I was very young, learning a bit of sight reading from my Mother, while listening to classical, jazz, and rock music. When I was 12, I learned guitar and later took private piano lessons from a prominent Philadelphia instructor. After playing in a rock band in high sc

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.
Bill Smoot
great understanding of what I know and how to improve! Experienced instructor

Geoff is great! Really knows what he’s doing. I’ve learned a lot in the three weeks that I’ve been working with him.

Loretta has been a wonderful mentor to me over the last couple months. She is extremely skilled in her craft and patient. You would be lucky to have her as your teacher :)
Claire Keating
Loretta is an amazing teacher! I'm 32 and playing flute for the first time and she had me playing songs after my first lesson. 10/10!
Dave
I can't say enough great things about Lorretta!! I am so happy I found her. She has a real enthusiasm and passion for teaching and it shows! Her style challenging but always fun! When I am having difficulty with a particular piece she always has several different methods to assist me. She is willing to take the time to make sure that I understand... She "gets it"! If you are serious about learning music, get Loretta!

I have been teaching for the past 8 years, and have worked with any age or skill level you can imagine. This has allowed me to create a methodology that will make sure you obtain the foundation you need in order to thrive at playing an instrument, but never lose track of what kind of music you're looking towards learning, and where your interests lie. I also have extensive performing experience having played and learned styles such as Flamenco (my first introduction to music), Jazz (I have a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Jazz Performance), Rock, Blues, Classical music and many more.

About Julian

I have a Bachelors degree in Jazz Performance from Berklee College of Music, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude, and a Masters Degree from Queens College in Jazz performance, studying under musicians such as Mike Moreno, Antonio Hart, Alain Mallet, David Berkman, Michael Mossman, Tim Miller and many

Our lessons with Julian are eye opening. He showed me many great exercises to become a better guitarist. He has a great attitude and knows a lot about music! If you want to learn guitar, Julian is the perfect teacher. Always looking forward to my lessons.
Nick
If you're serious about learning Guitar, you should talk to Julian. Seriously, my playing has improved exponentially since studying with him, 100% recommended!
Mike
Julian is the man! I started learning guitar from him a while ago and I can't believe how far we've come. I can now play some songs by myself, even learn them without his assistance. I had this idea that I wasn't cut for music making (I used to play some violin when I was younger, never got any good at it) but I couldn't resist the idea of learning how to play some guitar. Thanks to Julian (and his patience!) I no longer feel like I'm unable to do this. Take a lesson with him, you wont regret it!

25 years of teaching voice has given me the joy of helping singers of all ages and abilities realize their full vocal potential. As a vocal technician, my approach to teaching is based on the principles of vocal science, as well as my own proven theories. My students not only increase their range, vocal strength and develop a better tone, many of them have gone on to perform in major theaters throughout the nation. Whether you are a musical theater, opera, rock, jazz or pop singer, my technique will help you trust your voice and free you to be creatively expressive.

About Lauren

Whether you sing musical theater, classical, pop. jazz, country or rock, you will learn how to use your voice well. It won't hurt, you won't get hoarse, and you'll create sounds you've only dreamed about. Hi! I'm Lauren S. I am an internationally known singer and business owner who is passionate

Listen Up! Helpful Singing Tips Just for the Guys

The basics of singing are the same for everybody -- vocalists should be aware of unnecessary tension in your throat or body, maintaining good breath support, and never forcing your voice beyond its natural range. The principles are the same whether you are singing opera or rock. However, there are elements of vocal technique and style which apply to different genres and voice types, and some singing tips for guys that are as important for the next budding Pavarotti as for the aspiring death …
