Experienced piano teacher of eight years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of piano skills. I typically use Alfred's Basic books and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: flash cards and a metronome. I work with my students on sight reading as well as ear training so they can become better players over time. I also provide my students with homework sheet that explains what we have been focusing on, what they have achieved, and what is the expectations for next lesson.

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

Thank you Gabriel for teaching Jude. You are always prepared and know how to engage him in playing the fife. Jude loves the Christmas music you selected for him.

I work with a variety of people with many different goals. Currently my studio has young beginners, teens and young adults who are entering their professional career stage with new recordings, videos and many performance opportunities. We have upcoming shows at professional venues for our young artists as well as nursing homes and churches for less experienced performers. Shows include all genres and styles: voice, piano guitar and ensembles - and the studio has a lot of collaboration between people - doing back up vocals, co-writing songs, duets trios and more.

About Robert

Creativity, skill and love of music are the key elements that I work to encourage in every student. Over the years my teaching has evolved and I find it gratifying to take people far beyond their own expectations while helping them achieve their goals. I believe everyone is musical and just needs

//clinician, professional trumpet player & maker// Over the past 26 years I developed my own technique and teaching methodology how to play brass instruments the most efficient way.

The lip is the sound source which creates a standing airwave within the instrument and the trumpet functions as a filter and amplifier.

I also developed a special tongue technique which requires less movement when phrasing notes ( single, double and triple tongue) and therefore is faster, requires less effort, is very versatile, usable in any style of music and is much more accurate in hitting the notes.

If you understand these two aspects and are able to implement them you perform better with practicing less.

I cover all aspects of trumpet playing ( technique, breathing, posture, embochoure, equipment, phrasing, sight reading, improvisation, high range, endurance, sound quality, repertoire etc.).

Franz is a deeply knowledgeable instructor who truly cares about sharing his expertise. Plus his easy-going demeanor makes him a great mentor, can't recommend him enough!
John
With Mr. Hackl, you get not only world-class training and experience, but also access to the best equipment and technological skill!
Morty
Franz is a master musician.
As a teacher he is able to take the student from their level of playing and introduce them to new concepts on the instrument, thus raising their musicianship to much higher levels.

I highly recommend studying with Franz.

It's most important that I get a feel for what *you* want to achieve from your lessons, thus I'm a flexible teacher. Whether it be for professional writing or writing in your backyard, it's my job to provide you with the tools to sharpen your own, and bring other skills level with the areas in which you already dominate. As is the case for many (including myself as a kid), picking up writing often comes as the result of wanting to emulate another artist (my influences include Jason Mraz, John Mayer, and The Matrix songwriting team).

About Jake

Hey there! My name is Jake, and I'm a lifetime musician. I began playing guitar and taking lessons 20 years ago (at age 8), and writing songs at 5!... my grandma recalls asking me to play "number 5" on the piano, and I'd do as I was asked, right from memory. Guitar, songwriting, and singing have lo

About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off.

"I had never played a string instrument when I began lessons with Evan almost 9 years ago. Since I came to learn the violin late in life, have limited time and energy to devote to practice, Evan has patiently taught me how to maximize my practice time such that step by step, steady progress in my playing has been made! Evan is attentive to both technique and musicality, and continually challenges me to stretch in both aspects in an encouraging manner. I am glad Evan was my first violin teacher, and remains so!"

"Paul is a fabulous instructor!! He is so enthusiastic about what he does and takes his time with our lessons. I have never felt rushed at a lesson and we always use up the entire hour. Paul is also very accommodating when it comes to the practice location. He adjusts his schedule to make it easier for me to commute to the destination of the practice. In addition, Paul picks up music very quickly, so any song you want to learn, he will write the notes down for you and teach you to play it! I highly recommend Paul as an instructor because he is very good at what he does."

"Robert has a real gift for communication - he was able to not just understand what changes I needed to make in the physical production of my sound, but was the first teacher ever to be able to explain those changes to me in ways I could understand and reproduce. The exercises he provides are fun and build on each other over time. Most importantly, Robert is patient, flexible, and supportive - he's more interested in unlocking your vocal potential (in any field) than in teaching to any specific repertoire or genre. He's also an excellent artist, and will encourage you to access the emotion and the beauty of any piece you work with him. Robert brought a strong artistic sensibility, great compassion and friendship, and a practical understanding of physical technique to my lessons, and I'm a much better singer for it."

I would definitely recommend him as a teacher!"

"Annie is DONE and went well! We were all so impressed by Eliza’s confidence and grace under pressure (she handled a couple prop mishaps without missing a cue!) and can’t thank you enough for working with her on the Annie songs. She had a mic on so it was a good thing she was already really comfortable with the songs as they didn’t get to practice with the mic until the dress rehearsal right before the show. Only 3 (her, Annie and Tessie) of the 10 orphans on stage were mic-ed, so we could really hear her. The time and money we spent with you was sooooo worth it. Thanks for being such an amazing singing teacher!"

How to Fix Fret Buzz (Guitar Buzzing) Once and For All

You've got the fingerings memorized and the transitions smooth as ever - but then, without fail, that dreaded fret buzz comes out. Extra noises - we're talking humming, buzzing, scratchy amps, and the like - are often the bane of guitar players, and it's something that beginners all the way up to advanced players deal with. There are several factors that contribute to guitar buzzing sounds. Taking good care of your instrument can help, but natural wear and tear may affect the sound quality …
