*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back instructor with an incredible love for music. I will tailor each lesson to the needs of each individual student. I love teaching dedicated and diligent students. I am well versed in teaching various styles of music including but not limited to classical, jazz, and musical theater. I encourage my students to become musicians and not just vocalist. Each lesson will be comprised of a vocal warm-up, vocalizing exercises, ear-training, music theory, and singing. I will include a little history and diction when needed. When you study with me you will leave with the ability to sing any type of music of your choosing. I will infuse each student with my own passionate spirit for music. Lets sing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room set up for lessons with piano and microphones. Parents are able to sit in on lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own keyboard and tape/cd player. I would like for students to have a mirror and a cassette tape or other recording method for practicing purposes.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz Vocal Performance, though I was trained to sing Classical and Broadway music as well.

About Autumn
Hello there! Thanks for stopping by my page. I am classically trained violinist of 20+ years, and I am also skilled by way of original composition, songwriting, pop music arrangement, teaching, performance, and improvisation.

I am an award-winning composer, songwriter, and violinist. I won 1st place in the MENC’s national young composers award, 1st place in the Deep South Annual Open Mic Competition, 1st place in the 2006 WA State Solo & Ensemble Contest for violin solo and violin duet, the National Orchestra Person of the Year award in 2006, and 1st place in the national Shorty Award competition for my work in the band Season & Snare. I've been featured for my musical works on WRAL, WUNC, WKNC, Periscope, News & Observer, INDY, Oak City Sessions, SOFAR Sound, Raleigh Television Network, First Night Raleigh, and countless other media
outlets.

I studied Music Composition at Central Washington University after joining the Orange County HS of the Art advanced instrumental music program where I performed for the OC Chamber Ensemble, String Ensemble, and performed with the IMSO under the baton of Christopher Russell. I have also played in countless honors orchestras, string orchestras, symphony orchestras, string quartets, trios, and duos. I currently play violin for the Raleigh Civic Chamber Ensemble, the Raleigh Civic Symphony, the Americana band New Reveille, and am the founder of Petals String Duo, and the Carolina String Society. I have studied with renown violinists such as Gene Wie of the Southern California Chamber Orchestra, and Concertmaster Carol Chung of the NC Opera and NC Symphony.

I am currently in an Americana/alt country band New Reveille that is signed by the record label Loud & Proud Records.

*** Lesson Details ***

Always depending on the student's goals of course, I like to involve personal creativity into my lessons. From figuring out well known tunes, to eventually writing melodies, or at least coming up with the basis and foundation to a piece. I have learned that writing music on your instrument, in conjunction with learning to play the classics, opens up a vast array of musical knowledge and musical creativity. Everything depends upon what the student wants out of their lessons though.

I do enforce weekly homework in the form of scales, warm-ups, etudes, and selected works. All varying upon playing level, and progressing differently from student to student. Recitals are offered at local coffee shops and community churches. The student will have a choice on whether to play solo, with piano accompaniment, guitar accompaniment, or duet music for recitals.

After the first 6 months, the student should be able to comprehend most basic music theory, from note names and where they sit on the fingerboard, to basic scales, time signatures, and basic rhythms in order to effectively sight-read sheet music. The student will have developed a proper bow hold, and will be able to demonstrate a smooth and straight bowing pattern to obtain great tone!

Every student grows at a completely different rate, and this is what is expected of the average student.

*** Specialties ***
For my beginning students I use a combination of the Suzuki Method, All for Strings or Essential Elements, and Harvey Whistler's Scales in First Position.

Materials used for advanced students varies.

This instrument holds true to so much that occurs naturally in nature. The science behind the instrument is so fascinating, and I love to teach with that thought in mind!

THERE IS A REACTION TO EVERY ACTION YOU MAKE!

We could not have asked for a better violin instructor for our 7-year-old daughter. Autumn is exactly what she needed: someone engaging, flexible, creative, and most of all fun! Obviously she is tremendously skilled and a master of her craft, but this does not always make a great teacher. But Autumn is a great teacher, which makes her an absolute gift and inspiration! We are so lucky to have found her! Thanks, Autumn!!!

Autumn is encouraging and enthusiastic and helpful and fun. I am an adult and an experienced violinist who stopped playing for 20 years. I am just getting back into it and am delighted to find that I haven't forgotten how to read music and play, but I am really wanting to improve my sound. Autumn is happy to work on just what I want and need. I don't believe I could have found a better instructor for me.

No matter how much I make annoying squeaking ear drum popping noises, she's right there making it all sound.....imaginary! Ms. Autumn rocks! Ms. Autumn rolls! She is the best of the best!

This was my first private lesson with Dr. Daniel, most importantly he made me feel very comfortable and I wasn't afraid to sing notes in front of him. Dr.Daniel took the time to gather my history and take notes about what I said. Dr. Daniel was very thorough for our first visit, even though I had only booked my first class to be 30 minutes. I look forward to taking more lessons with him and am excited for our next lesson! Thank you so much!

· Guitar · Online
Incredibly knowledgeable in physical techniques required for guitar; He is a master of all the subjective hands-on knowledge you can't learn from a video or a book, like individual hand/wrist placement, strength building, muscle memory, string bending. His curriculum is excellent for developing the raw ability to play as desired.

We initially did lessons in person then transitioned to Skype once I moved away. I found no difference between in-person or Skype.

Before I became a student under my teacher, I thought that my previous teacher was good. However, looking back, my first teacher (Not Robert Grant), was horrible. The one distinct difference between many of the casual guitar teachers and Robert is that he has a great curriculum for teaching kids and adults the proper techniques, different styles, and practices for playing the guitar. I remember on the first lesson, he immediately commented my wrong form for my picking hand. Since then he has assisted me in correcting bad technique, pursuing my strengths and passions, and expanding my knowledge in music theory, both specific for guitar and for music in general. His curriculum is equal if not better than many college courses for music(classical, jazz, etc. courses). I have been with him for 3-4 years now and I find myself greatly improved from when I first started. I would recommend going to Robert if you want to seriously learn how to play the guitar with a brilliantly structured course.

I've been playing guitar for 28 years and Robert has done more to advance my playing in the last 5 months than anything else I've done over that time. Whether online or in person, Robert has a great mix of laid back attitude with a task-master's approach; he encourages his students to have fun with the guitar, but to take it and their work with it seriously. In a really short time, I've picked up a wealth of music theory and my technique has improved dramatically. Most importantly, I'm having more fun playing than I have in years. I can't recommend Robert highly enough.

I am a professional concert violinist and have been happily teaching violin for 11 years. I have my Master of Music degree in Violin Performance from University of Oklahoma and a Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance from Western Michigan University. During my student years I had the pleasure of serving as the concertmaster and assistant concert master of my university symphony orchestras, and was a paid member of the University of Oklahoma Graduate String Quartet, which served to showcase the music school in regular public concerts.

I have enjoyed a rich orchestral career, which has taken me across the country to perform with professional orchestras such as the Austin Symphony Orchestra, the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, the Battle Creek Symphony, the Amarillo Symphony, and many others. Additionally I have performed in numerous
public concerts and events as a soloist and an ensemble musician. I only recently settled down with my newly wedded wife in North Carolina and have been building a music studio of enthusiastic musicians of all ages and levels.

About Jordan
I am 30 years old, and I have been a musician for over 20 years. I started playing the drums when I was 12 and I have loved playing ever since. The drums are so expressive and so energetic. I have played drums in primarily live contemporary christian worship music for about 15 years, and I love coaching people in that arena.

I have been a worship pastor for the last 6 years. I love working with all of my musicians, but especially the drummers. Coaching and creating the right rhythm to match the song and blend with the other musicians is really fun and such a creative process.

If you are someone who is looking to develop your ability to play with a live band, then I might be the instructor for you. Especially if you're interested in the contemporary christian worship music genre. Learning how to play within a band, learning how to add t
asteful elements spontaneously, and learning how to play in a way that complements what the other instruments are doing are all things that take time outside of just learning the mechanics of playing a drum set.

If you are someone who is looking to learn to play the drum set, but you don't necessarily know if you're going to play in a live band, that is great too! I can teach you to read drum-kit sheet music that will help you develop and very well rounded and versatile set of rhythms and beats.
