About Connie
I love teaching, and enjoy passing on that joy, knowledge, and experience to my students! I tailor lessons according to the student's goals, abilities, and preference in musical styles. Whether you're wanting to learn the violin to be a virtuoso or just as a personal hobby, I believe you should enjoy the learning process!

I am passionate about music and enjoy teaching aspiring students! I am active as a violin teacher, performer, chamber and studio recording musician in the greater Los Angeles area. I hold a Masters of Music Degree in Violin Performance from California State University, Long Beach and have been playing the violin since the age of four. I've enjoyed teaching private lessons for the past 18 years and have experience in teaching group and private lessons to students of all ages, coaching string orchestras and string ense
mbles. I have a broad education in music with knowledge of classical, modern, and world music, as well as advanced training in music theory which I incorporate in private lessons. I have also studied conducting, music analysis, music history, voice, and advanced piano.

*** Specialties ***
While I specialize in classical music, I help my students discover what genre of music they're passionate about learning, including classical, jazz, pop, and fiddle. Lessons include scales, technique, ear training, sight reading, music theory, solos, duets, music performance and the option to prepare for auditions and youth orchestras. I tailor the curriculum I use depending on the need of each individual student. Please contact me for up to date lesson availabilities!

***Repertoire***
Beginner to intermediate students use method books such as Essential Elements, Suzuki Method, and the Royal Conservatory of Music. For young students, I also use the Sassmannshaus Tradition, and the Violin Fun Book series. Intermediate to Advanced students learn technique using Carl Flesch scales, and studies from Shradiek, Sevcik, Mazas, and Kreutzer to name a few. Solo pieces including from composers such as Mozart, Franck, Bruch, Mendelssohn, Seitz, Bach, Handel, Beethoven and Vivaldi. I also encourage my students to explore other styles of music that interest them, such as pop, fiddling, Celtic, and movie music.

About Marie
I graduated from Temple University with a degree in jazz voice! I believe anyone and everyone who can talk has the ability to sing. I love seeing progress in my students from week to week as they foster their musical ability through the use of proper technique! I'm a natural-born teacher and very patient with all ages. I've lived in Philadelphia for 6 years; I'm originally from Massachusetts and moved here for school. I began taking classical piano lessons when I was 4 years old and trained with fantastic teachers for over a decade. I toured Europe for 5 weeks with a national honors choir (Sound of America) when I was 18. I have also studied with numerous opera and jazz vocal professors during my time at Temple University. All of these different experiences have helped me foster a love for music that I would love to share.

About Tyler
Hello! I am a college student looking for opportunities to help you learn! I am most able to teach music, specifically the violin, but can help in a number of academic subjects as well. I have been playing the violin for nine years, have been concertmaster/principal violin of Heritage High School's prestigious Orchestra program for two years, and have attended the statewide Solo and Ensemble festival since seventh grade, receiving "Superior" ratings every year. At the state competition my senior year, I was nominated to be a member of the Michigan Youth Arts Honors Orchestra, with an extra nomination to be one of four "Outstanding Soloists" in the entire state. Since I had been concertmaster of Heritage's orchestras, I was leading sectionals for my four years of high school, which is where my initial teaching experience comes from. Beyond
my curricular musical experience, I have composed a few orchestral pieces of my own, played as a guest soloist in multiple ensembles locally, and played in various youth and festival orchestras.

I believe in a very relaxed and comfortable teaching environment and teacher-student relationship, and I make it clear that the time that you are willing to put into learning determines how well you will learn. I make my best effort to mimic how my violin teachers taught me, as I was always excited to spend an hour of my week with an impassioned, joyful master of an art (though admittedly, I am no master!). Regardless, I am here to help and guide you in whatever way possible, but, as always, "practice makes perfect!"

Beyond my musical experience and accolades, I had a very successful academic career in high school. I graduated summa cum laude and top 20 in my class of 350 from Heritage High School, with a near 4.0 GPA. My academic merits earned me a full tuition scholarship from Saginaw Valley State University, where I currently attend. Given my academic experience and merits, I consider myself able to teach high school mathematics (Geometry and Algebra 1) and some English as well.

I hope this has been helpful and informative, and I look forward to teaching you!

About Maiwenn
Bonjour, my name is Maïwenn. It's a celtic name. I come from France, from Paris, where I grew up. I love playing the harp. Music is one of the most important thing of the life. You can share it and play with other musicians. Music helps to feel better and positive. I love playing different kind of music because music stays music. I'd be very enjoyed to teach you the harp and maybe to help you to learn few words in French. I started to learn the music at the age of 7 years old. I obtained a gold medal for harp and a degree in music studies at the Conservatory. In 2005 I received my first prize for harp and I became the first harpist in the Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestra of the Paris Conservatory. I regurlarly give many concerts with my different bands. I’ve been teaching harp at different levels for many years. I’ve been working with
a lot event planning agencies specialized in weddings in France for an international clientele. In 2006, I form a classical duo. I am very pleased to propose my duet « Sonates en Duo » an unusual alliance between a soprano saxophone and a harp. We record our first album under the name of Sonates en Duo. In 2011, I set up “Twinkel Quintet”, an electro-acoustic experimental jazz band. Twinkel Quintet explores an unlimited repertory where freedom of expression and experimentation are revealed through my compositions and arrangements of jazz standards, original acoustic browsing with stamps and appliances. For me, the Twinkel Quintet represents, above all, a desire to access and develop a musical project based on her instrument, the harp, - an instrument that is little known in this kind of music, and which provides great scope for creativity. Indeed, the music of the Twinkel Quintet is music that is at the crossroads of jazz and contemporary music, full of moods and colors that awaken and challenge our curiosity.

About Jesse
I'm a professional percussionist, pianist, and recording artist born and raised in Woodbridge, VA. I have 15 years of professional music experience, ranging from touring/session work to marching band composition. My life as a musician imbued a unique outlook and philosophy on musicianship and how we learn to play. I pride myself on my personalized approach to each individual student, allowing them to create in a fun, relaxed learning environment.

I have students of all ages, beginner to expert. I work very well with young students, as well as students with special needs. As a teacher and a musician, I firmly believe that music is meant to be a fun and creative exercise. We must invent, reshape, and redefine the standards. I teach students to understand the fundamentals behind their instrument, recognize patterns, and manipulate these bui
lding blocks to create something new. Everyone has different goals and expectations, and my lessons are framed to set any individual along the path to mastery.

As a drum teacher, I teach fundamental concepts like basic hand techniques, counting, introductory rudiments, and more. For more experienced players, I can teach concepts ranging from Latin groove to songwriting as a percussionist to advanced improvisational techniques. I hold the belief that a drummer must be a musician first, so music appreciation is a primary point of learning for all my students. Whether you're just picking up the sticks or you've been playing for years, I'll always be able to unearth new creative potential.

For my piano students, I again work well with students of all levels of experience. Beginners and intermediate students can expect to build a foundation of solid hand fundamentals, music reading & writing, musical comprehension, and a basic understanding of music theory. More experienced players will explore advanced musical concepts, such as composition, advanced chord structure, modal theory, and more. As with my drum students, piano students should expect a relaxed learning environment.

I currently handle a roster of 50+ students and multiple bands. When I'm not teaching, I'm playing with local Virginia outfits Roraima, Model Trains, & Walkabout. I've toured for Be Still Cody, Funeral Advantage, and Cocoba. I specialize in funk, R&B, experimental, and punk rock.

I had the opportunity to observe Jesse Harman's musicianship first hand 2 years ago. They were performing with a group in the Port Huron, a town in Michigan. Harman not only showed great professionalism in their craft but brought an amazing sense of fun and creativity while performing. Off stage, they handled their equipment very meticulously and with utmost care. To summarize what we have here, it is a devoted musician, who has not only mastered their art(and continues to develop said abilities) but as an added bonus, was a very kind individual and all around swell human being.

I haven't had the privelege of taking an official lesson from Jesse, but as their classmate and friend, I've learned a lot through osmosis. I've concluded that Jesse's talent is immeasurable, as I've seen through their many performances as a marching and concert percussionist, pianist, pop/rock/prog drummer, etc. They are not defined or confined by any particular style or genre. They do it all.
Beyond Jesse's immense talent is an even greater work ethic. They work hard to maintain and improve upon their talent, but they are also one of the most approachable and relaxed people I've met.
I've seen performances of bands Jesse has coached, and it's clear that not only are their kids technically proficient, but they have great confidence in themselves, too.
Jesse always leaves me inspired to become a become a better musician, solely through performance. I imagine the difference is that a real lesson will actually make you a better musician.

About Andrew
Music has always been a part of my life, playing his first instrument, the piano, at two years of age. Then, at the age of nine, I started learning the guitar. Like most young musicians at that age, I began this part of his musical journey, focusing on rock, winning the Shredding Contest in the under 19 category at the Vancouver Guitar show when I was fourteen. It wasn’t until he was in high school that I became a dedicated jazz musician, discovering a true passion for this genre. During my high school years, I was featured in many honour ensembles and won numerous awards, the most notable being Most Outstanding Guitarist at MusicFest Canada, a national level high school music festival, in both 2013 and 2014.

After moving to New York in 2015, I spent two years at The City College of New York and am currently finishing off my degree
at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, on scholarship. As an up and coming young musician, you can find me playing at venues such as Shapeshifter Lab and Cornelia Street Café.

I am an experienced educator, having worked as a private instructor since the age of thirteen. Performing in numerous bands playing music from jazz to rock and funk has given me a wide variety of skills to offer to any student, regardless of style. My technical knowledge of the instrument can keep more advanced players entertained, while my patience, teaching experience and practical advice can help any beginner get started on the right path.

I knows that each student is different and has a different relationship with music. I like to tailors my lessons to fit the students specific needs. Having experience in many different styles, I'm able to explore what the student wants to learn, while still teaching them the fundamentals of the guitar and music theory.
