Alaina C.

Oxford, MA

About Alaina

ABOUT ME

I teach both piano and voice in Oxford, MA. where I co-own Calton Music Studio. My students currently range from 2.5 years old (in KiddyKeys preschool piano classes) to adult, and I love teaching them all! I’ve taught students ranging from novices to professionals and conservatory-bound high school students, and I’m particularly passionate about working with enthusiastic beginners and building musical fluency from the bottom up. I also adore working with older students on the finer details of technique and seeing them light up when everything finally clicks!

One of my main goals
as a teacher is to provide a unique learning experience tailored to each individual student. I incorporate proven classical techniques with modern technology and approaches to make lessons both effective and engaging. I’m extremely passionate about both vocal and piano pedagogy and am always on the lookout for new research and new ways to keep things interesting. My students, whether studying piano or voice, explore a wide variety of repertoire, including classical, folk, jazz, and popular styles.

If you’re curious about the nitty gritty, I have a Bachelor of Music from New England Conservatory and a Master of Music from Longy School of Music of Bard College. When I’m not teaching or practicing, myself, you can usually find me behind a book, at a local farmer’s market, or directing the choir at the First Congregational Church of Oxford.

STUDIO

My home studio has a grand piano and a seating/waiting area for parents and siblings.

STUDENT MATERIALS

I will provide reference books and other teaching materials that will be used in lessons. I expect my students to have a piano (or full-sized keyboard with 88 weighted keys, an attached pedal, and a proper bench) for home practice and to reimburse me for books to be used at home.

Exceptional!

My daughter started piano lessons at age 8 and switched to Alaina when she was 10. The growth has been exponential! Alaina is an incredibly talented musician and has a real skill for teaching. She is very gentle and patient, yet knows how and when to challenge a student. The music is engaging, interesting and makes learning fun. My daughter loves playing and continues to be inspired by Alaina's talents and passion. i would highly recommend Alaina without reservation!

Great insight!

Alaina was such a great teacher! She was my teacher my senior year of high school and was really helpful. She picked out pieces that really showed off my voice and helped me get in to a good music school. Now that I am in college, Alaina has because a great friend and mentor to me! I am really lucky to have found her as a teacher. :)

Jean B.

Worcester, MA

About Jean

Jean is patient, fun, and imaginative. She also loves passing on the gift of music to anyone wanting to learn!

Jean's philosophy of teaching is; 1. Taking on any new task requires time and discipline. Mistakes are a part of the learning process. The biggest challenges reap the greatest rewards.

2. The student and teacher are a team! The teacher and student will work together to learn together. As the student is learning new skills and techniques, the teacher is learning all about the student and their specialized needs.

Jean's Education:

Jean is a graduate of Bradford College i
n Bradford MA with a Bachelors Degree in Creative Arts. Her major instrument is piano.

Jean's Experience:

Jean began playing piano at the age of 5. Taking a break from lessons for a few years as a teenager and picking it up again in College.

Jean has been teaching piano for 10 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
Within a lesson, students can expect to be given instruction on developing proper technique. (scales, chords, basic music theory etc). The learning environment will be laid back and fun, with the student and teacher setting goals together, and reasonable expectations will be held for both the student and teacher.

Jean will ask what it is in particular that the student is wanting to learn, and will seek to develop curriculum centered around the student's goals. Weekly practice (5 days a week, 20-30 minutes a day) will be the encouraged minimum. This will vary slightly depending on individual student needs.

Students will have the opportunity to learn to play music by composers such as Mozart and Bach. They can also learn how to play movie soundtracks, tunes from their favorite Broadway or Disney songs, and more! Vocal students will have the opportunity to learn show tunes, Italian arias, German songs, praise and worship songs, their favorites from musicals, and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in living room with piano.

David K.

Worcester, MA

About David

My teaching philosophy is rooted in a desire to help students channel their inner creativity and artistic passion through their voice. My first priority is to create an atmosphere in which students can explore, create, fail, and succeed without fear of judgment. From there, I give students the technique and musical guidance needed to achieve their artistic goals. I believe that music is a serious business that requires immense technique and rigorous dedication, but I believe great technique can be achieved through love and joy, and not just fear.

Prior to moving to Worcester in 2016, I perf
ormed and taught extensively in Philadelphia. I taught voice classes and private lessons at Temple Univ. from 2012-2016. I taught voice majors as well as non-music majors. I served as a teaching artist with Opera Philadelphia from 2014-2016. We focused on bringing opera to Philly public K-12 classrooms. I am currently working on my doctorate in Vocal Performance.

I had so much fun during every lesson I had with David, and I could not wait for the next one every time! He is a very patient person, and he made sure that I felt comfortable. The lessons were half technique and half working on a specific piece of music. He adapted the lessons to my level and helped me choose songs that made me want to keep singing!

I improved so much over the past year, and I learned a lot from David about my posture, the best way to breathe, and how to sing more musically. I really wish all music teachers were like him! You must take a lesson with him – you won’t be disappointed!

I took singing lessons with David for a little over a year. My progress has skyrocketed since I began with him. He is kind, patient, understanding, and passionate. We usually began with a few warm up drills, scales, fundamentals exercises, and technique, with each exercise adjusted to fit my ability and skill level, usually with a clever analogy so I could comprehend. He is a great teacher and any student would be lucky to learn from him.

Ronald K.

Shrewsbury, MA

About Ronald

I am a conservatory trained (St. Olaf College BM, Peabody Conservatory MM) professional oboe player. I played for many years in the Boston Philharmonic Orchestral and am currently the second oboe in Symphony New Hampshire. I have free-lanced around the greater Boston area since 1987 playing orchestral music and chamber music professionally. I have also taught oboe students since 1987. Much of the teaching was through public school systems such as Newton, Natick, Concord and Shrewsbury. I have a room in my house dedicated to music. It has separate access from the rest of our house (our do
g and my own kids!) I do love sharing music with people of all ages. My students get not only advice on how to play the oboe but also a perspective of music history and theory in so far as it pertains to the music one is learning.

Mr. Kaye has been teaching my 11 year old daughter since mid June (6 weeks). He has great knowledge and has helped my daughter correct bad habits she picked up for past 2 years from her previous teacher. She has gained greater respect and understanding of Oboe.

Mr. Kaye is an incredible Oboist and is very easy going. He treats my daughter as budding talent and has patience. He encourages her and praises her. It is a pleasure to watch my daughter progress.

My daughter and I would highly recommend Mr. Kaye to anybody who wants to learn to play an oboe.

Janet B.

Hopedale, MA

About Janet

Music is every person's birthright. It's a way of knowing, a way of being. Music is multi-cultural. Music learning will open up pathways in your brain that will make it easier to learn other subjects. It provides a way of expressing yourself and an outlet for your joy and pain.

What aspects of music would you like to learn? I have taught piano and music theory for 25 years and Music Together classes for families with young children for 15 years. Currently singing A cappella, 4 part harmony with Women of Note chorus and All 4 WoN quartet. Presently studying advanced music theory and ar
ranging as a candidate of Harmony Inc.'s contest judging program.

I have many years of experience teaching children and adults of all skill levels and abilities. Students with autism, attention deficit disorder, sensory issues and other learning differences are welcome and treated with patience, kindness and respect. I have extensive experience with this population and have cultivated many resources and relationships with experts that guide me in teaching individuals with special needs. Every child in my program will be taught as an individual with his/her own unique learning style. Developmentally appropriate techniques will be used along with teaching strategies that cater to each child's personality and learning temperament.

Teenagers are busy people who juggle so many responsibilities. In addition to teaching their lessons and helping them to grow musically, I will provide them with practice strategies that will fit into their hectic schedules.

I also enjoy teaching adults of every skill level. There is no rush, no stress. Just the pride and excitement of learning something new. So if learning to play piano or sing has always been on your bucket list, let's tackle it together and make it happen!

Janet loves music, loves teaching, and loves people. You will not find a more dedicated and compassionate teacher of the arts. In the 14 years that I have known Janet, music, teaching, and family has been her priority. Her skills continuously grow as she has explored music in many different settings such as early childhood music, piano accompaniment, and choir singing.

My daughter, who is now 23, began her piano instruction at a very young age with Janet. Janet was the first one to instill good habits, finger positions, musical attitudes, and a genuine enjoyment of playing for her. She still loves to play her fast classical pieces, which I'm sure Janet recalls fondly.

Thank you Janet, for being the first to guide my daughter to blossom her natural talent. You are a beautiful part of the tapestry of our lives :)

Janet Billings was a wonderful piano teacher for my 7 year old son. She made learning music fun and interesting. Andrew always enjoyed his lessons with Janet and was sad when we moved away. But the foundation Janet provided in music came with us and enabled him to continue with lessons. However he never had as much enjoyment as he had those early years with Janet Billings.
