Charlie P.

Charlotte, NC

About Charlie

I have been passing on what I've learned in my own studies, personal and privately taught, to help new students get the strong foundations for becoming the best musician they can be. I've been playing since age 6 (now 44) and performing since 18. I started with Classical guitar, then Rock and Jazz. In all my years of study, I've learned how to teach and how NOT to teach. I have had many years of private lessons. I've written, recorded and performed for over 20 years. My wife and I even do voice over work on occasion.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students have become friends and I've seen man
y go on to become performers, songwriters and teachers. I also use a wide range of materials when teaching like DVDs, CDs, and computer 'play along' tracks. I love teaching, seeing people smile and enjoy making music. Music is like painting : I try to show students as many colors as I can and encourage them to create something of their own which others can enjoy as well.
I sometimes learn FROM my students as they present something they wish top learn but I must first figure it out before showing them how to play it. It's very give and take when I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
studio on second floor for lessons; chairs and equipment available; books, metronomes, music stands, cd players, cables and amps; acoustic & electric guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Rock and Jazz and appreciation of Classical
Expose students to music they normally don't listen to.
Guidance through improvisation and creative process.

Charlie has a vast range of talents, skills, and knowledge with music. I have been taking lessons with him for almost 6 months and I have to say that my playing abilities and comprehention of music has grown exponetially. if your looking for a music instructor that takes the time to develop your skills, then Charlie is the guy. also, please excuse any spelling errors.

Awesome

Charlie is not only a great teacher, but a great guy. he is fun and easy to be around, creating a relaxing environment for learning. Everything i know how to do on bass was made possible by Charlie. He is slow with the process and makes sure not to rush you and makes sure you understand 100% of the material before moving on. He is simply awesome.

I've only had one lesson with Grant so far and I was totally impressed. He made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease. He listens to you and you can tell he really cares about his students. I would give him the highest marks and can't wait to go for my second lesson.

Daniel B.

Fort Mill, SC

About Daniel

Hi, there! My name is Daniel and I can't wait to meet you! I just love music! I have played the piano since I was 6 years old, and was one of those kids who loved to practice. I am passionate about teaching and love imparting the techniques, wisdom, and practicality that I was taught to my students. I understand that every student learns differently and I cater each lesson to the individual student. I use a combination of fun games, unique teaching techniques, and electronic aids to adequately teach each lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano students should provide an acoustical piano (n
ot a digital). I will provide metronome and any other teaching aides that may be used during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in sacred with a proficiency in hymn improvisation. I also am proficient in classical teaching.

About Sue

I enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels. Each lesson is customized to meet the individual students' needs and goals. I have over 15 years of teaching experience.

My education in music is extensive. I was principal cellist at the Interlochen Arts Academy orchestra in Interlochen, Michigan. I have a Doctorate from Indiana University in Music Composition and Music Theory. I also studied piano and cello at Indiana University. I have a Masters degree in music from Butler University in Indianapolis. My major was composition but I also studied piano.

My teaching experience is al
so extensive. I have taught intermediate campers at the Interlochen Center for the Arts summer camp as well as at Butler University and Indiana State University. I have been writing music and teaching private piano, cello, music theory, and composition lessons in Charlotte, NC for the last ten years.

My compositions include solo and chamber pieces as well as electronic works, symphonic band works, and orchestral works. In 2004 I won the Judith Lang Zaimont award from the International Association of Women in Music.

I love music and enjoy sharing it with others. So whether you are 5 or 90, or somewhere in between, let's have some fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are customized for each student. Weekly assignments will be given. Please bring a notebook to the first lesson for lesson assignments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the students to buy the appropriate music books and have the appropriate instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I teach in all genres - pop, rock, classical, new music, jazz, new age, etc.

She is brilliant and nice! She have a doctor degree for music from Indiana university.(If you like cello, Janos Starker is one of her teacher when she was in school. If you are sort of person like me who like show out in front of friends, you can say Janos starker is my teacher's teacher! LOL!) She is well qualified for all levels cello players. I took cello class from her. She not only taught me cello techniques, but also music theory which can help to understand cello technique. She always try to teach me how to think and find out the best way for me. Not just show me how she play. I think this is important. I learned so much from her last year! Sadly I have to move back home. Highly recommended for people who want to learn how to play cello!

It is easy to recommend Sue to anyone as she is a fantastic music instructor. She makes learning seem easy, which is the hallmark of a great teacher. You will find her to be extremely friendly and approachable so you never fear making mistakes or asking any questions; her patience is unwavering.

One particularly great thing about Ms. Sue D.'s teaching method is her flexibility with learning material. She took time to review method books I had from a previous teacher, picking songs and exercises she felt would supplement lessons from the books we normally use.

I have found my lessons to be both enjoyable and extremely informative. When we are reviewing the material from the previous week at the beginning of a new lesson I always have the feeling I've made real progression on the instrument.

About Jennifer

Hello There! I'm so glad you found my profile! I have been blessed with a fantastically rich childhood that included music since age six. I have played the piano for almost 19 years, the cello for 15 years, and singing for as long as I can remember. For seven years, I played cello with the Charlotte youth orchestras and served as principle cellist of the Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestra my senior year of high school. I later pursued a minor in Music under Dr. Mira Frisch while earning a BSBA in Marketing in 2012 at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

I have been a cello instruc
tor for eight years teaching beginner to advanced students. I have also taught beginner piano and voice lessons and would love to continue that.
In addition to teaching, I perform individually and with my siblings for weddings, religious services, corporate events, and various orchestral performances.

Jennifer has been a delight to watch as she teaches my daughter how to play the cello. Not only does she teach technique, but Jennifer also shares her joy for music that is contagious to those around her! She is professional, friendly, and easy to work with. It has been wonderful to hear our daughter's cello playing get better and better since she started taking lessons from Jennifer. She is an awesome teacher...and person...and I totally recommend her!
