My goal as a teacher is to help you reach your musical goals! My lessons consist of scales, duets, and solo repertoire. Each lesson is different depending on the student I am working with, but the core of my teach is based around these 3 areas.

About Victor

My name is Victor and I have been actively teaching cello for the past 7 years. In Ames, IA I had a studio of 8 students, all ranging from different age groups and abilities. I also have experience teaching online lessons, which require a slightly different approach than in person lessons. I recent

Felicia
My 9 year old's first cello lesson. She loved it. A great teacher with a lot of patience, insight and tact.
Julia
Victor is a wonderful teacher. He’s very patient and focuses a lot on the important fundamentals. I’m an adult student and he was very encouraging and helpful.
Peter Ruland
As a 40 year old beginner I was a little nervous about the whole online experience as well as starting a new instrument. Victor makes the online teaching experience seamless. Victor is calm, thoughtful and patient. He always finds a way to explain something in a way that relates to me specifically. To do this someone must be able to listen as well as teach. This is quality I have not found in all of my teachers/instructors/coaches throught the years. Victor is also easily the most flexible of any teacher I have had. He always finds a way to accommodate my schedule and works around any issues that arise. I have really enjoyed my learning experience thus far and look forward to each lesson. I would not hesitate to recommend Victor to anyone looking to learn the cello.

Everyone chooses to take voice lessons for different reasons, but we all have to take the time to find our own true voice. I have ten years of experience helping beginners of all ages find a basic technique that helps them express themselves, entertain, and communicate with their friends, family, and larger audiences. My students have been seen on many professional local stages in musical theatre productions, as well as being accepted into prestigious university programs. A loving, creative approach with motivating joy helps students find the best in themselves and share it with their adoring audiences!

The guitar has been around me my whole life. I picked it up as a hobby in high school in the late 90's and never looked back. It's become a way to express myself, share my gifts with people and also, fortunately enough, make a living. I love teaching students of all ages and interest levels; whether you just want to learn a couple of chords to play around the campfire, or work towards being a pro-level lead guitar player.

About Chris

Chris grew up hearing his dad play guitar around the house and at live shows. He “caught the bug” around age 13 and hasn’t stopped playing since! He’s been teaching guitar since 2003 and received his Bachelor of Arts in Music at North Central University in 2008 where he studied jazz, blues, rock, c

Renee
My 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.
Helen
My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Brian
Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

Hello! I am currently in my third year of majoring in violin performance at the Eastman School of Music and looking to teach a few students in Rochester. My past teaching experience includes instructing middle school and high school students, and I was also the student teacher for violin this past summer at the Chautauqua Institution. I've always enjoyed teaching and am accepting students of any level!

In our lessons, we can cover anything you'd like (your enjoyment of guitar is my top priority), ranging from basic technique all the way to advanced fretboard maneuvers. I can teach you anything from simple strum patterns or fun classic riffs all the way to the technical mastery of great guitarists like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. I'm well versed in music theory and can give you insight on how and why ideas work and how they can easily apply to your playing (such as scales, arpeggios, etc.)

About Austin

Raised on a balanced musical diet of classic rock and 90's country, I received my first guitar in elementary school and began taking the instrument seriously around 12 years old.

"I've been taking violin lesson with Jill now for almost a year and she is absolutely amazing! She is extremely patient and works at your pace, especially if you're like me and have a busy work schedule.

Her deep understanding of music and experience teaching has enabled her to explain techniques with relatable analogies.

Two thumbs up for Jill!"

"My daughter adores Carolyn, as do I. She is incredibly knowledgeable and a true jack of all trades--we recently started coming for lessons 2x a week because of how much she has to offer. Madison has grown so much as an actress/singer in the last 3 months since they started working together and I know that's not by sheer coincidence. Carolyn is worth every penny. Thank you Carolyn for all your hard work and dedication, and for being such a great role model. Maddie and I can't wait to see you on Broadway soon!"

We found Jessica through the Suzuki Association Directory. I was looking for a teacher that taught through the Suzuki method and she ended up being a perfect fit for my VERY energetic son. Patient, flexible (lessons in our home), laidback and even willing to drop by on her free time to fix a few broken strings and stray bridges
We could definitely hear my sons progress after each lesson...very pleased and would definitely recommend!!! :-)"

How to Be a Better Singer... With One Overlooked Secret

Wondering how to be a better singer? There's more to it than knowing how to use your voice. Read on as teacher Tony F. explains...   Do you love to sing? Is singing the first thing on your mind in the morning and the last thing at night? If you can answer yes to those questions, you might be what’s known as (cue the Star Wars theme music, maestro)… a singer. Symptoms may include: rocking your head to a favorite song as you sing along while driving down the road… an unbalanced …
