Timothy D.

Philadelphia, PA

About timothy

My name is Tim D. I am 27 years old and have a life long Musical devotion. I started playing the piano and drums at around 5 yrs of age. My grandfather was my main teacher as he was a working musician himself in traveling bands. When I was in junior high school I started to attend Settlement School of Music and studied there throughout my early teenage years. I served in the US army for four years and was able to use those benefits to pay for schooling when I got out. Now I am a double major in Music Education and Theory at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance. I am curre
ntly studying piano under Dr Yanovitsky there at Temple also as my major is piano concentrated. I am looking to build my teaching resume and work with some motivated students and give them my inspiration and influence.

*** Lesson Details ***
Depending on the student, I will determine the type of teaching style that I will need to incorporate whether it be a disciplined or laid back style. Some students will show that they are motivated by working on the material given and having it prepared for the next lesson. After about a month of good productivity, I will see that I do not need to be as strict as the students that seem less interested. This will decide the way I go about making progress with a pupil. My teaching strategy starts with the student. I will ask them what they know, what they want to know, what types of music they like, and what types of music they want to play. With that being said there are some rudimentary attributes that need to be ingrained in a students musical mind. Some of these are note identification, identifying intervals, correct fingering for scales, hand and finger positioning, and good posture. I believe that starting a student out correctly can be a great step towards avoiding "bad habits" in piano playing which are very hard to stop once learned. We will start out with certain material that will be ideal for the student. This will of course be determined after the findings of where the student needs to be started. After about 3 to 6 months, a determined beginner will have a strong foundation that will be used to develop he or she into an exceptional musician. I believe in not only teaching notes on the keyboard but understanding music theory in general. For instance I may ask the student to sing the notes in a melody or even clap the rhythm so that there is no question in their mind of the musical language. It is important to get the student to understand rhythm and meter which are some of the building grounds of music theory. What I want in my students is for them to be well rounded musicians.

Mr D. is the best. He is very patient with both my girls. He redirects their attention whenever they get off topic. He is very easy to get in touch with if there is any scheduling conflicts. Both my girls ages 8 and 5 look forward to their lessons every week.

Great Teacher!

I started taking lessons with Tim last summer after taking a long break from playing piano. I am really enjoying my lessons and I'm learning more than I ever have from another teacher. He is very patient and structured in his teaching and also pushes me to my full potential. He also allows me to work on a mixture of pieces from popular songs that I like to classical music. I would highly recommend him.

Matthew S.

Levittown, PA

I teach beginner and intermediate piano techniques. You will learn chords and scales as well as different play styles. Also, you will be able to read music well enough to play and go through any piece of music.

About Matthew

I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university.

I wish to help others make music
an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine.

*** Lesson Details ***
For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my methods and use a scaffolding technique. Going out of your comfort zone helps learning and development.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fender Jazz Bass
Music Man SUB Bass
Ampeg amp

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a logbook or notebook, staff paper, pencils, their instruments if applicable, and a metronome.

I bring extra staff paper and pencils just in case

Great teacher. Goes at your pace and is very patient even if he has to explain things multiple times. Makes sure you understand what you're doing and not just blindly following. Praises you when you do well and encourages you when you struggle. Looking forward to learning more from him.

Michael C.

Philadelphia, PA

Learn to read, write and perform on the piano. Play simplified versions of your favorite songs while making your way through Alfred's basic piano library. Using software, I create recordings of my students exercises; students experience an enjoyable way to practice and develop their skills playing along with recordings. These recordings are made and adjusted specifically for each learner. The software allows me to tailor a practice session specifically for each student.

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Phil
adelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ensemble also know as Metagroove. During this time Michael had shared stages with guitarist John Scofield, Singer Ike Willis (Frank Zappa Band), Medeski Martin and Wood and The Disco Biscuits among countless others.

C. has completed a Master of Arts in music education as well as Bachelor of Music in bass performance. Michael is qualified to teach on bass, upright bass, guitar, drums, piano, voice and a rare instrument called steel pan (steel drum) among others. Michael performs as a freelance musician. He can be found performing regularly at private parties and events around the greater Philadelphia area. He has performed playing most styles and genres of music. Among these styles are Pop, R & B, Blues, Hip Hop, Jazz, Calypso, Flamenco, Latin, Pop, Musical Theater and Rock & Roll.

C. is a trained professional and prefers to cater his lessons to the individual need of each student. He believes that each student is unique and will encounter challenges in their own manner. Michael likes to supplement his lessons using musical interests of the student. C. has been known to arrange popular pieces for recital performances for his students. Some of the pieces he has arranged for his students include Something in the Way She Moves (Beetles), Long distance Run Around (The Who), Iron Man (Black Sabbath), That' €™s What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction), Hall of Fame (The Script) among many more. Michael encourages his students to use the music they love to challenge their ability and cognitive processes. Michael has the experience and training required to inspire and motivate you to become successful not only in music but in your daily endeavors.

*** Lesson Details ***
Michael has over twelve years experience teaching music and chooses to cater his lessons to the goals of his clients. He does not follow a set curriculum because different students tend to have different goals and expectations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Logic Pro X, Reason, Fast Track pro audio, Double Bass, Piano, Rhodes Electric Piano, Acoustic guitar, Electric Guitar, Flute, Sax, Clarinet, trumpet, Electric basses, Steel Pans (drums), etc.

Audio recordings of each lesson are free of charge and available upon request. C. is capable of creating demos and audio recordings as well as audio production of original material.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Laptop, Guitars, PA system, Basses, Metronome, Method Books, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Steel Pan lessons are available. Access to a steel pan(drum) is a requirement for this specialty.

About Adam

I have been passionate about music all of my life. I have been teaching guitar and piano for 9 years. I'm a doctoral student at Chestnut Hill College pursuing a degree in clinical psychology with plans to become a music therapist. I learned guitar and classical piano under 2 private teachers while pursuing my Psychology degree and music minor at Rutgers University in NJ.

Music was a way for me to find peace, structure, confidence, and an outlet for personal expression and creativity outside of my everyday life. I've grown as a person and a musician through music. I get excited when I see
my students learn enjoy playing something new. I love music more than anything else and that love is something I try to bring out in my students. Once there is love for music, everything grows naturally. I teach to help my students find those strengths in themselves to live a fulfilling life through their instrument.

***Lesson Details***

We create daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to achieve.

Guitar: After 3 to 6 months of learning with me, you will have a basic knowledge of chords, how to read musical notation, strum to play. Most importantly, you will have learned 3 or 4 songs of your choice so that you can experience the joy of expressing yourself through music.
To achieve these results, you must be willing to practice 20-30 minutes a day.

***Specialties***

I specialize in teaching students to learn to play by ear and improvise songs based on their tastes, style, and ability level. I also walk students through how to write and record semi-professional quality songs with drums, vocals, guitar, and piano. Music genres I cover are mainly Pop, Pop/Rock, Folk, Blues Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative, and Classical (piano only)

Cant speak highly enough about Adam. I felt he went above and beyond for a guitar teacher. He challenged me to perform at an open mic fairly early (I couldnt play a full song before starting lessons) and took his own time to come support me. He teaches piano too and has a great understanding of music theory. This was big for me as music theory is fascinating to me. Our lessons were very relaxed and always left me excited to get home and practice more. My interest in guitar is fairly schizophrenic and I like to change focus all the time to cover as much ground in our precious weekly hour. Adam did a great job working with my idiosyncrasies and taught me a great amount in the few months we had lessons. (I moved out of town)

Allison T.

Oaklyn, NJ

I have over ten years teaching experience. My approach is holistic, incorporating music theory, ear training, healthy physical technique, improvisation and sight reading. I use the Faber Piano Adventures books as a basis, but supplement with a wide range of repertoire from classical to broadway to pop, depending on the student skill level and interests. As a performing songwriter and EMMY-nominated composer, I also help students with songwriting and live performance. Optional annual recitals.

About Allison

I believe in taking a holistic approach to teaching piano, incorporating music theory, ear training, healthy physical technique, improvisation and sight reading. I have over ten years experience teaching students of all ages, and I enjoy working with each student individually to build on their strengths and help them develop in the areas they find more challenging.

An EMMY-nominated film composer, I also teach songwriting for students interested in composition. Lessons are tailored to each student, incorporating a diverse mix of classical and contemporary repertoire and a practice plan that
addresses each student's needs and musical goals.

Drawing upon my extensive background as a performer in music and theater, I encourage students to take creative risks, to be expressive, and above all, to play with joy! All students have the opportunity to share their progress with family and friends during fun, low-stress, semi-annual recitals. (Participation is optional but highly encouraged!)

Teaching Materials:
I use the Faber and Faber Piano Adventures books as a foundation, but also incorporate other music, including classical, pop and theatre music, depending upon student interest and what I feel will best help my students to stretch and grow! Students are also welcome to request pieces they would like to learn; I will do my best to find or create an arrangement that's appropriate to your current skill level.

Allison taught my daughter for 4 years. We found her to be patient and nurturing, and she was able to keep my daughter motivated, which is not always easy, since my daughter quickly becomes frustrated when things don't come to her right away. Allison is great with kids and has a knack for keeping lessons fun, even while she's challenging students to be their best. The recitals were a real highlight for us. They gave our daughter a real goal to work for, and as we got to know the other families over the years, it was fun to watch their kids improving too.

Allison taught my son from the ages of 6-12 and my daughter from the ages of 5-8. She was great with the kids--always patient and friendly--and they both were very attached to her. As well, she taught them both how to play piano and music theory, which I thought was great. While she followed a set of piano books, she also was always willing to find them sheet music versions of songs they liked at a level they could play, which really helped to keep their interest high. Allison is a terrific teacher and both my children loved learning with her.
