I have been teaching flute for almost 20 years. I have a doctorate in flute performance and have done training and extensive research in body mapping and efficiency of body use. I take a very holistic approach to teaching and playing the flute. Each student is a person, an individual unlike anyone else. Every body is unique and therefore will play the flute differently than other flutists. When I teach, I aim to get to know the whole person in order to effectively work with the flutist. I work to get to know how each student learns and processes information. A flutist cannot become a good musician without making the journey their own. My goal is to give every student their own individual path to reach their goals, while also giving them the tools to use in their own teaching of individual flutists. I emphasize these specific areas in my teaching: the physical aspects of flute playing, including playing position and posture, breath control, sound and tone production, projection and ...

John was very good w/me. He knows my goals & was able to help me. He gave me some practice sheets. I will do that everyday.

Dr. John Ross is an excellent teacher! He helped me take the music I was preparing to record to a whole new level. He has so much knowledge and can present that knowledge in a way that is approachable for students of any level. I am so thankful I got to study with him!!!
Michael
John is an outstanding player and pedagogue. Over a number of years, I've observed John work with students of incredibly diverse backgrounds, ages, and skill levels. With each and every student, John connects with the individual, finding what will help that person rise to their fullest potential as a flute player. Technical progress is a given when studying with John. Additionally, students consistently enter his lessons eager to learn and leave with a renewed drive to grow. I cannot recommend John highly enough.

Thanks Moriah . I have been writing contemporary christian, gospel and kids songs for five years, I needed some help improving my lyric writing and song structure getting my songs from good songs to great songs in today's styles. I hate to say this because she has been so patient and so good I fear she might get over booked now. I think she deserves the compliment . I have worked with many others and so far I think she is the best. She has helped me take one of my song to the next level I am hopeful to get pitched to a ccm artist. I plan on staying with her. I think she really knows her stuff.

Moriah is an amazing vocal instructor! She is so kind and focused on making sure you progress, whatever level you're at. She has given me wonderful tips and really helped me improve my technique. She really knows her stuff!
Billy
Moriah is so great to work with and an excellent teacher/ vocal coach. My technique, tone, and control have improved a lot in a short amount of time. Also if you want to learn harmony she's the best you're gonna find. 5 stars bc they don't have 6 for an option.

I really enjoy teaching beginning guitarists. I love to see the joy in people when you can take them from the very beginning, and teach them how to play their favorite songs on the guitar.

I also enjoy helping intermediate students to further develop their skills. Many times I work with adult students who used to play but want to pick it up again. It's never too late to continue to learn!

Brad does very well with my 8 year old who hashould a very short attention span. He I'd more than accommodating coming to our place for his first lesson and showing him how to put his drum set together.

My daughter has taken four lessons so far and Brad has her playing very well already. He will even play along on the guitar which gives her the feeling of playing in a band. She is having a good time and looks forward to more lessons.

Great Drum Instructor

Brad is currently working with me as a drum instructor. I had been working with another instructor for about 2 yrs when I realized it was time for change. Brad was a perfect fit when we met. Brad works with me once a week for anywhere from 1/2 to 1 hr depending on my needs. He has been so encouraging and supportive of everything I want to learn as well as what he feels I need to learn. My skills are improving everyday with the techniques he uses which fit me very well. I am very blessed to have him as my new drum instructor. He is very good at adapting to where you are and moving forward from there. I would recommend Brad to anyone who is ready to learn the drums no matter at what level you are currently playing.

In my studio, I believe that my role is to steer students toward a deeper understanding of themselves, their instrument, and their relationship to music. I tailor my teaching to the needs of my individual students, who currently range from age 7 to adult, often adding improvisation and extended techniques to increase my students€™ awareness of the potential of the flute as a channel for one€™s creativity.

About Roberta

Flutist, Roberta M., is equally at home playing classical and new music. I Care If You Listen has extolled her “lush, full tones… even among the best professionals, not many flute players sound so compelling in a lower register.” Praising her “extreme adventurousness,” New York Concert Review said

Jim H.
Roberta was patient and was obviously an experienced teacher. I teach and I understand what it takes to put a lesson together so that the student gets the most out of it, while pushing the student to do better, but not too much to discourage them from moving forward. She hits that sweet spot! I would recommend her to anyone who was serious about learning.
Firas ..
she has got a very lovely and cheerful personality.It made me really want to practice more piano even though i haven't played it for months.

"I studied piano for 3 years with Yoon Jae, from when I was 25-28 years old. I'd started playing piano a bit in my early 20s, but never very seriously. I am mainly a drummer and percussionist, and studied music in college. I was looking for someone to take my piano playing, reading, and technique to closer to that of a professional, rather than an amateur/hobbyist which was where I was at. Yoon Jae really did that. I'm not going to be touring and playing Carnegie Hall anytime soon or anything like that, but I can really confidently say that my lessons with Yoon Jae raised my level a lot. My understanding of touch, nuance and phrasing grew a lot. My reading, though still a weakness, improved a lot, and my technique improved tremendously. By the end of our time I was playing Chopin's Fantasy Impromptu. I think if my 22 year old self saw a video of my 28 year old self playing that piece I would be floored. Though I don't take lessons with him anymore, now when I work on a piece on my own I still use many of the approaches, strategies and practice techniques he taught me- and I think that is the most valuable thing I got from him. He really developed a much deeper awareness, nuance and focus in that I can take with me for the rest of my life as a musician. He really is a great teacher."
