Jerry Y.

Cranbury, NJ

About Jerry

I've been playing and loving music for well more than half a century, now. I got started in second grade when my grandpa brought home a little violin one day, and I've been at it ever since. I was fortunate to take lessons for more than ten years with Carita Page, a teacher who was very warm, encouraging, and caring. I do my best to pass that on to my students in addition to the technique of playing and the theory of music, fascinating as those are.

I feel that playing in groups is very valuable experience for students and gives you a side of music that private lessons alone cannot. I
encourage students to look for opportunities to do that. To help provide those opportunities I organized the Cranbury Scout Band, one of very few continuously-operating Scout bands in the country, which I have directed for more that ten years now. I've also been on the staff of several Jamboree Scout bands.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is a different individual and learns in different ways. I try to make lessons as interesting and as useful to each student as I can, and include different things based on your interests and capabilities. Most students find duets are fun, so I include them often - both duets with the same instrument you are studying and duets with other instruments as well so you can learn the sound of such combinations. I encourage you to "play with your ears" as well as your fingers, to become a critical listener to your own performance and to decide whether you sound the way you want to sound.

I encourage students to try different things to become a more rounded musician. This might be something closely related - a flutist trying the piccolo or a clarinetist trying the bass clarinet. Or, it might be further afield - a flutist trying the guitar or a violinist learning movable Do and solfeggio singing. Every aspect of music is good to know.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My music studio is in a separate building - actually a renovated barn about two centuries old. The studio contains a piano and all the other instruments that I teach, and is roomy enough not only for private lessons but for musical groups up to about ten. I have many other resources there as well, including files of music, a small music library, and a computer that we can use for many purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need their instruments, music, and stands.
I bring my own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Classical,
Marching Band,
Ethnic (such as Jewish, Irish)

We had a wonderful experience for our 1st visit. We really look forward to weekly lessons with Jerry. We feel comfortable with him, he's very detailed in explaining/teaching. And we didn't know how to tune the Violin but Jerry tuned it for us over and over again. 😀

Alexandra P.

Princeton, NJ

About Alexandra

I am interested in teaching private lessons to each individual student - taking into account your goals, strengths, weaknesses, and background. I will never teach by a method that does not account for the unique qualities of each student. I use what I have learned through many years of musical study to teach you in the most efficient and beneficial way, based on YOUR needs.

As a voice student, I will ask you about your taste in music, what your goals are as a singer, and encourage you to suggest repertoire you'd like to learn. In addition, I will do an assessment of your entire voice - f
rom posture and breathing to articulation and expression - and introduce repertoire that will help you become a better singer. I am comfortable teaching pieces written in English, Latin, French, German, and Italian.

I am a classically trained singer with a background in classical piano. I have performed in musicals, operettas, operas, and recitals in soprano repertoire. I received bachelor's degrees in voice performance and music education at The Pennsylvania State University. I recently completed a master's degree in voice performance and pedagogy at Westminster Choir College. Over the past 7 years, I've gained experience teaching private piano, private voice, group voice, traditional choirs, pop styles, musical theater, classical repertoire, and have worked with students of all ages.

I am happy to report that in addition to offering in studio lessons, I am now available as an Online Instructor via Skype.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a teacher that will help you realize your full potential. In the lesson, we will spend time doing physical warm ups (light stretching) and breathing warm ups, vocalizing in all parts of your range, and working on repertoire. I am very open to helping students with music outside of the lessons, such as music for a school choir or an upcoming audition or call-back. My goal as a voice teacher is to help you in whatever way you need - whether you want to audition for a choir or a musical, learn how to sing classically, start your own band, or just become a better singer. I am understanding and flexible, and only ask that you do what you can outside of the lesson. A little bit of practice each week is better than none at all, and I will teach you ways to practice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio, practice rooms, or classrooms, all have pianos, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Classical voice (opera and art song), Legit musical theater

Anastassia was patient and kind with my 12 year old daughter who had never had singing lessons before. When my daughter started to feel nervous she quickly calmed her and had her sing one of her favorite songs along with a you tube video of the artist. She helped her with her pitch and range and breathing too.

James is a great teacher. I have been taken singing and songwriting lessons with James for around two months now. I have learned a lot of skills and confidence, I never thought I could have. James also makes sure he’s going through the lesson at a speed you feel comfortable with.

Katie was very proactive, understanding and very kind. My daughter is only 13 years but she is 5'8" and feels very self conscious. But Katie put her at ease and now my little girl cannot wait for next Monday. She is practicing the song assigned to her "All of my favorite things" which is also a favorite of her late grandma. She was to be the best she can and also surprise her teacher Katie. Overall our experience was very satisfactory. She is highly recommended. Thank you Katie for making my girl feel that she can reach for her goals in singing.....!!
