Alaina C. Roslindale, MA

About Alaina

ABOUT ME I began taking both voice and piano lessons at the age of 11, after years of sitting outside my older sisters' clarinet lessons and wishing to study music, myself. I fell in love with music at my very first lesson, and knew that it was what I would do with my life. I went on to attend New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where I received my Bachelor of Music in vocal performance, and then onto Longy School of Music of Bard College, where I am currently working on my Masters in vocal performance and continuing piano as a secondary instrument. I am the co-owner of The Creative Musician and have experience teaching piano students ranging from 4-year-old beginners to experienced adults and voice students ranging from novices to conservatory-bound high-school seniors. I am

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. :)

Danilo is the Best

Danilo is enthusiastic and fun. My son likes him very much and is learning a great deal. He enjoys his lessons. I think Danilo is a great match for my son - this is why I drive for one hour to get to the lessons and up to two and a half hours to get back home. (Traffic).
Danilo is a great teacher and very talented musician!! I'm thrilled we found him!

Great teacher, really talented

I have worked with Danilo for a few weeks and look forward to every lesson. Not only is he very talented, he is patient, attentive, and really works with you on getting the best out of every lesson. I would reccomend him to anyone looking to start an instrument or to get back into playing an instrument.

Danilo has not only taught my son trumpet, he has taught him to love music.

Danilo is a gifted teacher as well as an excellent musician. He tailors each lesson to my son's inclinations and interests while moving him along towards greater mastery of the trumpet. He encourages my son's curiosity and has conversations with my 10-year-old that touch on pretty sophisticated musical ideas. I cannot recommend Danilo more highly. He is patient, kind and always well-prepared for each lesson which builds on the work from the week before.
Bil M. Dorchester Center, MA

About Bil

I am one of those individuals for whom teaching is just something that I have to do. I started giving music lessons sometime in the 80’s and have loved working with all levels of skill and experience. My students say that I am patient, adaptive and encouraging, committed to making music fun. I have a Masters of Music from New England Conservatory in Jazz Piano and am comfortable and fluent in a number of musical styles, including pop, rock, gospel, traditional hymnody, jazz, and R&B. Although I love and study classical music, it is not something I teach at this point. In addition to private lessons and performing, I do music transcription, workshops, and all forms of vocal and instrumental arranging. Having served as a church musician for more than 30 years, I currently co-lead ...

A born teacher

Bill is a remarkable teacher. After 22 years of not playing I am truly grasping music theory which is opening my ears and hands up to music in a way that I have never experienced. Bill's teaching style is mellow and exciting at the same time, he is clear with the information and can sense when I get it and when I don't. His communication relates so well to tangible examples that I am able to grasp that it is making the learning easy and fun. Bill is quick with praise and kind with corrections.I look forward to seeing him every week.
Marie-France M. Hyde Park, MA

About Marie-France

I have taught piano and voice most of my adult life. Early on I learned the need to adapt my teaching style to the uniqueness of each student, especially those whose perceptions differ widely from the general populace. I love what I do, helping each student discover and nurture their abilities, no matter what age the student may be. The Holistic Piano method is especially effective with my Autism-spectrum students, a segment of the population I find particularly rewarding to teach. The following is a quote from ex-student Karena Krull, author of "Drama Made Easy", and "Rummy Roots." “Her greatest strength is her ability to find the right direction for each individual. This ability to adapt to the student's needs lends to individual success for student and avoids their ...

She's really good. I am just a beginner and I am making progress thanks to Marie-France. She gives out homework so you can improve and she tailors each lesson to the needs of that student. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in pursuing music.

About Brent

I have twenty-five years of piano playing experience and have taught privately for the past five years. Lessons will include music theory, music writing, composing (if the student is so inclined), and performance. I specialize in teaching the works of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Schumann, Schubert and Brahms. A minimum of thirty minutes a day of practice, is a must. I look forward to the opportunity to work with students and parents to provide a challenging and progressive platform. I also have years of experience teaching older adults. I teach lessons either in my North Quincy home or will travel to the student. I supply the lesson books, to be paid for by the student. My previous work includes accompaniment for singers of German Lieder, Italian Opera, Art Songs as well as choral

Music Performance · In studio
I am a classical singer and have had the pleasure to work with Brent as my accompanist for the past 10 years. Brent is a very proficient and insightful musician. In addition to being quickly adaptable to all types of music, he brings a depth of understanding to any given piece that is both historically insightful and poetic. He is very happy to share his insights about musical personalities and their historical context which gives the music a greater richness. He also brings that to bear in working through the poetic ideas of the pieces we've worked on. This has been one of the best aspects of working with Brent and I hope others get to enjoy this collaboration too.
