Students of all ages in a personal relaxed atmosphere.
Customized to each student. If the student has not previously taken lessons I use Piano Adventures as the basic course guide. I have found it the most productive and enjoyable for my students. I uses a minimum of the Lesson and Theory book for my younger students with either the basic course or Accelerated course depending on their age and maturity. Adults begin with the All In one adult book. I add the other books that accompany each level based on the particular students needs and interests. I believe that a good grounding in Theory is essential as a student who becomes proficient in sight reading, no matter how well he/she plays by ear, will find that the doors for lifetime musical fulfillment with be much wider. However, with a student who has already had some lessons I will be happy to continue with any method that the student is currently using.
I also believe in supplementing the Piano course with the student's favorite ...

Kathy came to my home for my lesson. She has a very pleasant personality and it is very easy to follow her instructions. She kept the pace up, yet did not overload me. It's been a number of years since I have played and she did an excellent job on getting me back on the keys. I am looking forward to our next lesson.

I teach all levels of violin. For the lower levels, I use the repertoire from the Suzuki books, but I don't use the actual method. I teach with a more traditional approach. After the student improves in skill, I move them into the traditional scale and etude books along with repertoire that pertains to the level of playing. My number one requirement for my students is scales and etudes. This is the basis of how to play your instrument well. I try to instill good habits in my students and proper technique to present a clean and full sound. I have my students analyze what it is they are playing instead of just playing the notes. With that, I encourage them to LISTEN to the music they are playing. A musician needs to hear the many complexities and pull the emotion out to the listener and to themselves.

Playing guitar doesn't have to be difficult or boring. Whether you want to play the Beatles on an acoustic guitar, learn your favorite Metallica riffs or even learn the basics to play at church...I'm your teacher!

About Eli

Hi future students! I’m Eli. I know how tough it is to teach yourself an instrument, because I struggled with it for years and years. One of my biggest issues was learning how to practice, so if that’s something you struggle with, I can certainly help you develop a routine to which you would follow

After his first session, my son (10 years old) said Eli was, "really nice." They reviewed a lot, Eli asked a lot of questions about previous experiences and and listened to him play. Sounds like it was a packed session but not overwhelming.

"I can highly recommend this very talented musician.
I have taken five lessons with Anthony and have very much enjoyed his passion and teaching style. He is patient and non-judgmental and has a very thoughtful process for learning bagpipe techniques.
I appreciate that he sends me a video demonstration of what we just covered in the lesson to fall back on.
Anthony played thunderstruck by AC/DC for me once and it was simply amazing."

"Cory was kind and outstandingly patient with my 5-year-old son. I love the way he used repetition, provided memory tricks, and encouraged frequent participation to really sink home the lessons. In tandem with beatboxing techniques, Cory also introduced my little guy to percussion instruments and reviewed letters of the alphabet. My son really enjoyed himself, and has been playing with his new beatbox skills all day. A truly first class lesson experience - we can't wait for the next one!"

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …
