In my 27 years of piano playing, I've been using synthesizers for 17 years.

I build all of my own synth sounds, but I can teach how to use and manipulate presets.

I can teach many different things about synths such as:
building patches, building sounds that sounds like popular sounds in popular music, differences in synths, pads vs. leads vs. sound fx, routing, analog synths vs. digital synths vs. software synths, and the list goes on.

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

Materials needed:
• I recommend that my students keep a practice journal to record their daily practice ...

"Emily was patient with me as a beginner. Her instructions were very detailed, easily understood and very helpful. Her pace was just right - not too slow, not too fast. She took the time to observe my technique and make corrections gently as needed. I would highly recommend Emily for online violin instruction to students of all ages."
