About Paul B.

Portland, ME
View Full Profile

I've been teaching piano now for 15 years. My goal is for the student to learn to play by feel in addition to reading music. A standard lesson would consist of some playing in books and going over some music theory followed by playing by feel. This would include blues,jazz, and rock grooves. My approach is creative and customized to the prospective student. The student needs to enjoy learning the piano. A happy student is a successful one.

About Paul
I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com
I play by ear but also read music. If you are looking for an old school, rigid, teacher who only has students only follow books, then you should look elsewhere. If you want to be able to play or sing with feel and learn music theory with some reading in a comfortable working studio then contact me.

I can help teach jazz piano, classical, contemporary and improvisation.

About Tonya
Hi, there! My name is Antonina and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years and although I help foster technically advanced students, I mostly pride myself on the fact that I help students fall into a lifelong love with music! Although with time students tend to lose their interest due to the self-discipline required to succeed at playing an instrument, I make sure to offer a fresh, inspirational, and engaging approach to my lessons. I introduce many different styles, performance skills, composition, and most importantly the ability for self-expression through music. I have been playing, teaching, and performing my entire life and have a huge passion to share the gift of music!

By far one of the most patience and kind teachers I have ever had the pleasure of working with! She knows how to target where I needed to practice and what I would have do to achieve my goals. She is also really talented in her own musical compositions, as in original ideas and song writing. I feel absolutely blessed and honored to have met and worked with this incredible person!

I've had several piano teachers over the years, but never came across anyone quite like Tonya. It's rare to find music teachers of her caliber in South Florida. Besides being a great teacher she is also an incredibly talented musician (song writer and singer) in her own right. Highly recommended!

My great grandmother, grandmother and mother were all music teachers, and I'm thrilled and honored to have followed in their footsteps! I work hard to make sure that my joy in making music is passed on to you or your child.

About Julia
I'm a passionate professional vocalist and a fourth generation music educator. With 20+ years of professional performing, coaching and teaching experience under my belt, my vocal teaching method unites my classical and musical theatre educational background with the techniques I have developed for singing Jazz, Rock, R&B, Country, etc believably, beautifully, and above all, safely!

In expanding my teaching practice to include piano and ukulele, I emphasize rhythm and musicality alongside technique and note reading. I always set myself the goal of learning what makes a musician sound "right," and not just "good" in a particular genre. This versatility has made me extremely employable as an artist, and, I think, uniquely qualified to teach. I believe that students will work harder on music that moves them, and I always encourage students
to suggest songs that they care about. Good technique(s) can be applied to any repertoire!

Everyone has creative and musical abilities within, and it is the responsibility of the private instructor to bring those out in each student. For some people, learning an instrument comes very easily, and for others it is more of a challenge. Everyone learns differently, which is why private musical instruction is so crucial, no matter what the age of the student. A private instructor can customize learning opportunities so that the student can learn at his or her own pace, allowing the instructor to focus on each student's individual interests and passions. A private instructor can also provide customizedl feedback so that the student can improve upon weaker areas of playing and build upon strengths.

Becoming a musician invites a lifetime of learning into one’s life. For children, it allows them to participate in musical groups and o
rganizations where they learn to work toward common goals. It reinforces mathematical concepts when we talk about rhythm. It invites learning about history when we discuss famous composers, and physics when the way sound is produced is demonstrated. For adults, it keeps their minds active and always learning. No one is too old to learn to play an instrument! Adults learn quickly, and can have great progress in a relatively short amount of time.

I've been under Danni's guidance for a little while now and it's been amazing in every way possible. She's very professional at what she does, very knowledgable in her field of studies and very intelligent. She's able to pin point my mistakes with great accuracy, come up with a solution that's easy to approach and correct me on the very spot. Playing the piano was never this fun before taking her classes. I'd recommend Danni to everyone who's looking for a great piano teacher.

About Wade B.

Close
Vincennes, IN
View Full Profile

I have a fluid teaching approach based on my REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE with an emphasis on improving technique, musicianship and a “truth is love approach” to ensure musical improvement within the first two weeks of lessons! I sincerely believe creating music should be a joyful & fulfilling experience and one that will be a positive change in someone’s life (as it has been for mine). I teach all genres of music on multiple instruments and specialize in audition preparation, real-life gig preparation and musical mastery. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations, while having a good time doing something that they love.

About Wade
I am a GRAMMY Nominated educator, trumpeter, guitarist, bassist, pianist, singer/songwriter, composer/arranger, drummer and recording artist. I graduated from University of Indianapolis with a Bachelor’s of Arts with a concentration in Jazz Studies and the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music with a Master’s in Jazz Studies, specifically in trumpet. I am currently Director of Instrumental Music at Olney Central College and Linclon Trail College and have taught at Vincennes University in the past.

I work with brass players, improvisors, singers, guitarists/bassists, pianists, drummers & songwriters/producers/composers in a wide age & stylistic range and assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music
using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun. I can help any student to play or sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

As a professional recording artist I have frequently taken trips to New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, Chicago, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and many more cities for co-writing, recording, gigging and meeting with record labels. I have worked with well-known artists like Bootsy Collins (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), Philip Paul (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), Leroy Parnell (Country Music Legend), Marshall Jones (Original Bassist for Ohio Players), Liz Mandeville (Chicago Blues Hall of Fame), and Pinetop Perkins (GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award Winner). I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic and versatile musicians.

My personal passion is jazz, blues and soul music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Wade Baker was a great trumpet instructor. One thing I noticed and liked a lot from the moment I met him was that he connected with his students to create a better musical experience. Only good things came out of my lessons and rehearsals with him. I was only under his instruction for a year, but I grew a lot as a player with the help from him and also learned more about music than I ever did before. Wade is a very experienced player in multiple genres of music and he makes sure to use all of what he learned to teach his students. The only downside to being under his instruction was how busy he could be at times, but as a musician myself I completely understood. I would recommend Wade to anyone with how great my experience was with him.

About Nikhil D.

Close
Portland, ME

View Full Profile

I am a classically trained (but folk-inspired) pianist, who's been performing on stages across the northeastern United States for the past 4 years. As a teacher, my hope is to collaborate with students to help them play and understand music that inspires them. Lessons will primarily focus on learning songs of the students choice. We'll study theory and technique as well, but the aspects of these that we focus on will be in the service of the songs that we're trying to learn.

My background as a pianist is in classical music, with a few years studying jazz during my late teens and early twenties. The years of training have taught the value of proper technique and playing style, but my focus in adulthood has been my songwriting, which leans toward folk & americana. Today, I play and lead a Portland based Indie-folk group called SnugHouse.

About Nikhil
I found myself living in Maine about 7 years ago, when I started studying for my undergraduate degree at Bowdoin College. Before then, I had lived all over the place, most notably in Saratoga, California and New Delhi, India. I'm enjoying life here immensely - though I'm still getting used to the cold!

Playing and listening to music has been a consistent thread through my life, and I think it's a big part of the reason that home has never needed to be a place for me - it's always been a question of emotional connection to the people around me. I studied Math and Computer Science in college, though I was fairly certain even then that I'd be pursuing a career in music before long.

Today, my primary creative outlet is in performing with and leading my five-piece indie folk band, SnugHouse. Working with the group has been a very fulfilling
marriage of my pursuits as pianist, guitarist, singer and vocal arranger. We play shows regularly all around the northeast. If you're curious, you can check us out on social media, or wherever you listen to music!
