I had my MAJOR breakthrough in just 3 lessons with Fawn! I had been trying for YEARS with other vocal coaches, and all that happened was more hopelessness, frustration, wasted time and money. From the get-go Fawn knew exactly what to do, and now I am singing in my mix, head and chest 100% smoothly and with power! No more frustration or heartache for me! Thank you Fawn!

Do you wish you could play your favorite tunes? Have you always envied those who could sit and play the piano for hours? I can help! Through a series of books, you will learn how to read music, how to play with both hands, proper hand position to give the best performance, and rhythm!

About Tom

I have had a varied background growing up, from being an Eagle Scout, to holding a black belt in Judo.  Growing up in Arizona and being the youngest of three boys from a very musical family, I found classical music and it became my passion. I began with piano at age 9, while also sang in many church musicals.In 2006 I graduated from Northern Arizona University with two degrees: a bachelors in vocal performance and a bachelors in piano/choral education. At NAU, I sang in many operas and piano recitals and spent three months in Germany teaching choir through the Department of Defense.Shortly after, I graduated with a masters in vocal performance from Washington University in St. Louis. The studies I learned from Wash U catapulted my love for teaching!Recently, I have been teaching out of St. John School of the Arts, where I worked with v

oice and piano students ages 7-60. All of my students had varying styles, but I was able to help them build a foundation of technique that would allow them to sing with a free and healthy tone in any style.I believe we all have the ability to create music and I can help you discover it!

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal in voice lessons is first and foremost to establish a solid vocal technique.  My philosophy is "singing is simple, but not easy!"  We will focus mostly on two things: breath and space for singing.  This method of teaching is known as "bel canto".  It helps build a strong foundation that then allows you to sing almost any style!  Because everyone is different, we will tailor a set of exercises to fit your needs and will help you build that strong foundation!  Once these principles begin to settle in, we will work on music.  I have a huge library of songs to chose from, but I highly encourage you to bring in your favorite songs. Remember, everyone is different and progresses at different rates, but don't be discouraged! This is not a race, but a life skill that you will continue to master!

In piano, I am classically trained.  Through a series of music books, we will work on music theory, finger dexterity, music history, ear training, eye/hand coordination, and pure enjoyment of making music. Again, everyone is different, but with some outside commitment, you will improve! Classical piano training is a great foundation for all other styles, such as jazz, pop, singer songwriter, country, etc. Piano also helps with in other aspects of your life such as memory, math, history, reading, etc.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a full size keyboard and music stand.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Please provide a piano, music books, music stand (if needed), and a lesson book for notes.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained baritone specializing in bel canto. I have found this technique to be a great foundation for all styles of singing, from opera to pop. I am also classically trained at the piano. I focus on natural hand positions, note identification, music theory, and ear training. And I have fun doing it!

About Alina

Ask me: What is the music in my life? And I'll tell you - Music is everything! Having captured my heart since childhood, music still captivates me in its endless vistas. In my childhood I had a small model of a real piano and used to insert the sheets on the music stand and setting the dolls in front as an audience imagined myself giving concerts. Musical art was for me not just a fad - the music became my profession. Piano is amazing and is the perfect tool with which you can create a variety of images and indulge in any mood - with it you can share sadness and joy, talk about anything. I would be happy to introduce you to the multifaceted and vast expanses of the art of playing the piano.
Alina U an accomplished Ukrainian born pianist, teacher, chamber performer and accompanist. She has appeared on different performing venues in

Ukraine, Egypt, Spain, Morocco and US.
Alina’s desire to become an artist came at an early age. She performed songs and poetry at all family events, but her dream was to learn how to play the piano. She had a small model of a real piano and she used to insert the sheets on the music stand and setting the dolls in front as an audience imagined herself giving concerts.

She began her piano studies at the age of 7 at the Children Musical School No.1 in Sumy, Ukraine and gave her first solo recital ‘’Evening of Waltzes’’ at the age of 11. Alina continued her education with D. Bortnianskiy High School of Arts and Culture, Sumy, Ukraine, were she got an Associate degree in Music Art. Through education in National P.I.

Her goal is to enrich the lives of children and others by providing the understanding of music, fostering the enjoyment and inspiring musical imagination.
Ms. U. currently is a member of faculty in International Music Academy and St. Andrew School of Art.

The teaching methods focus on nurturing and developing the talents and musical abilities of each student by providing a well-rounded musical education. It incorporates principles and techniques of the Russian classical piano school, and includes repertoire from different styles of music, such as jazz, pop, folk, etc. Classically trained students develop the highest level of skill and ability on their instrument, and acquire a superior knowledge of music in general. An essential element of teaching is to develop a comprehensive knowledge of musical content, such as note reading, rhythm, harmony, structural analysis and many other aspects of music and its components. More comprehensive instruction in music theory and ear-training, already integrated into piano lessons, is offered in separate classes as well.

*** Practice guidance and expectations***

- Lesson’s regular attendance is very important to ensure student success.

- In order to progress satisfactorily, daily quality practice is necessary and required. Students should practice each day for the length of their lesson.

-Detailed assignments for each piece will be written weekly in student’s notebook. To help your child develop self-discipline and good practice habits, schedule a regular time for practice each day. The practice session can be done all at once or divided into two or more sessions. Younger children especially need help with their practicing.

-The practice environment should be treated as a studying place free from interruptions (family, friends, TV, phone, tablet, computer, etc.). Parents support and cooperation is a must for a child's musical growth.

*** Parental Responsibilities***

- Encourage progress! Many small steps throughout the year yield great results. Important note: Sometime during the course of taking piano lessons, your child may say something like, “I don’t want to practice,” or “I’m too tired to go to piano lessons,” or “I don’t want to go- I want to play with my friends,” “I want to quit,” etc. Just be aware that your child’s interest will probably not be consistent; but to be successful, you will need to be consistent in your encouragement and commitment to music instruction. In most cases, simply acknowledge your child’s comments, but then go on with your normal routine just as you would if you heard the comment, “I don’t want to brush my teeth,” “I don’t want to stop playing with my toys,” or “I don’t want to go to bed.”

- Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend lessons at any time, but SHOULD NOT interfere in the process of the lesson no matter how well intended it may be.

- Please don’t hesitate to communicate with the teacher any questions or concerns you may have about your child’s progress. Communication with parents is vital to a child’s progress. Please feel free to chat with your instructor during the lesson time. Your instructor will generally allot a few minutes at the beginning of each lesson to communicate with the Parent. We ask that you please keep in mind that we are not available beyond your scheduled time, so as not to impede on the lesson time of the next student. If you would like to discuss anything beyond, please feel free to email your teacher, or call and leave a message.

***Make-up policy***
Notify the teacher at least 24 hours in advance if the student cannot attend the lesson. There are no refunds for missed lesson. Occasionally the teacher might have schedule conflict due to performing activity. If a teacher is absent, a make-up lesson will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time. Scheduled make-up lessons missed by the student will not be made up.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Rebecca is literally the best. She is personalable and friendly and super easy to get along with. I was super nervous about sharing something so personal and intimate as a song I had written from my heart with an ACTUAL professional. But Rebecca was exactly that. A professional. It turns out Rebecca's amazing talents and skills as singer, a musician, and a song writer, are matched only by her ability to share her love and insight with other lovers of music such as myself. I felt almost immediately at ease and confident with her, and after only a few sessions was absolutely amazed how much I had learned about singing, song writing, and, if I'm being perfectly honest, myself; both as a musician and an artist. I was referred to Rebecca from friends, whose children she taught, and they and their parents both absolutely adored her. As a more *ahem* mature student, I was expecting some tips on theory and technique, and figured I'd just try, having strummed and picked away in hiding for many years. I have to say I am absolutely blown away with how much I've learned, and how easy it was with Rebecca's guidance and tutelage. If you love music and want to make your own, Rebecca is who you need to go see.

If you're just starting out or only a few years in the game, I'm patient and eager to help you build your piano skills! I want to make sure that you learn not only how to play the piano, but that you also have a firm grasp on everything else that goes into great musicianship! If you'd like, I can bring a strong emphasis on music theory, so that you can better understand and appreciate the music you are learning. On top of theory, I would love to open up the opportunity for you to compose your own pieces. I also want you to have a good understanding of how your instrument actually is working, physically speaking — my goal is to make you a well rounded musician!

I prefer to have you learn real repertoire versus working from a methods book, because I want you to be excited about the music you are learning. I will let you explore the rep that you want, from medieval to contemporary, as well as non-western. Contemporary classical music is my specialty, and I'd be more than happy to dive

About Kevin

Hello! My name's Kevin, and I'm a composer/musician based in Brooklyn. I went to the College of William and Mary where I studied both music and physics. Following that, I received a master's degree focusing in music composition from the University of Chicago.

I would love to help you have a stronger understanding of your instrument and music in general! I started playing clarinet in the 8th grade, and continued playing all through high school, undergrad, and grad school. Clarinet is my primary instrument, but before clarinet I began saxophone, and before saxophone, I began piano. Music has been a central part of my life for such a long time, and I can't imagine life without it!

My primary career pursuit is music composition, so I would love to dive into some music theory with each piece that you learn. I feel that understanding the mu

sic itself builds a stronger appreciation for the act of playing music. I have written a lot of pieces for myself on clarinet, and would be thrilled to help you on your own compositions if that is something your interested in. Contemporary classical music is my passion, but I want to help you explore the repertoire that fascinates you.

I remember when I started taking piano lessons as a child, I was extremely nervous to meet a new teacher and play for them. I wasn't even the painfully shy type, but something about playing music in front of a professional can be very intimidating. I had this expectation of myself to already be good, and I feared that the teacher would make me feel like I wasn't talented enough or didn't have what it took. Thankfully, I had wonderful music teachers (most of the time!) that would create an atmosphere where I felt comfortable. My lessons with my teacher, Mr. Decker, were a joy every week. Now that I myself am continuing this tradition of music instruction (10+ years of teaching experience), I know how important it is to create an environment in which the student feels at ease, and in the right frame of mind for learning and growth.

Greetings! My name is Gabriel, and I want to welcome you into the wonderful world of piano playing! I am an experienced teacher you can trust to take you or your child to the highest level. I've been playing piano for over 29 years (since I was three)! Growing up in a musical family, I first studied with my mother, who still teaches to this day in Orlando, FL. I studied at the University of Miami, graduating in 2008 with a Bachelors of Arts in Music. Some of my career highlights are
Performing with the Frost Wind Ensemble in Carnegie Hall in 2006.
Performing regularly with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. They still tour around the world under the direction of Terry Myers.
Performing with The Temptations and The Four Tops (on saxophone, my other professional instrument).
Playing at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter from

2014-2018.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in one word: Listening. I think this is the most important skill for a musician, music teacher, and music student. I listen to the student and find out what music already excites them. Then, through that music that they are already interested in, I teach them the universal fundamentals of music: first RHTYHM, then MELODY, then HARMONY. Practice can be fun when you are learning music that you love! I remember being a student myself, and being bored by many of the pieces I had to learn. Practice was drudgery at times! But, as I got older, I started making my own musical choices on what to study, and then I couldn't take myself away from practice! I look forward to my practice time every day, and I want to show you how to have that same excitement for learning and growth. I tailor my lessons to the needs of the individual student. I am always kind and patient, but I do push you to achieve your full potential! Let's get started!

Piano Reviews

Tatiana
"Great for adult students leading hectic lives.

I work very long, irregular hours at an extremely stressful job so I picked up piano lessons as a stress
-management mechanism. To be clear, I had played for over 8 years before I stopped in college. So, my primary goal was to regain enough skill to be able to learn pieces quickly and play them for leisure.

Troy has been very patient, flexible, and supportive. Importantly, he is able to tailor each week's lesson to his students' needs. Some weeks I come in and I've had time to practice. But on other weeks, where I come in during a break at work having not even SEEN a piano all week, we work on sight reading and technique. Even if you haven't practiced, he makes each lesson worthwhile.

And my sight reading has improved dramatically!"

"Melissa was the perfect teacher for my child. She's warm, engaged, patient -- and very skilled. I think my daughter continued with her piano instruction o
nly because she enjoyed her classes so much! If we hadn't moved an hour away, we would still be going to Melissa. She's awesome! I highly recommend her."

"Joseph is a very patient teacher and his method of teaching piano works really well for me. I am able to grasp concepts quickly and have become quite prof
icient at not only reading music but also playing by ear because of his training. He is very inspiring and talented himself. I would highly recommend him."
