I teach anything from learning how to read music to lead sheets etc.

About Ali
Ali has had music in her life since she was in the crib. She has performed professionally in the musical theatre world and she has studied in several universities for Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Blues, and R&B. Since the age of sixteen, she has been selected to sing as a guest soloist for venues such as Spivey Hall, Georgia World Congress Center, and Georgia Tech Hotel Conference Center. Ali has also sung for many movies and recordings, and recently recorded a demo for David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli and recently toured as a pianist for "The Women of Ireland." She is a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music and earned her BM in Music Business and Vocal Performance cum laude studying under Magi Scott, Jeff Ramsey, Jerome Kyles, and Carolyn Escoffrey, Donna McElroy, Livingston Taylor, Joan Lader, and Charlie Sorrent
o.

Ali is also known for playing piano. She received her minor in Piano Performance within a year at Shorter College under Helen Ramsaur. She has been playing since she was five years old and has accompanied many people and musical productions.

Some of Ali's major influences include:

Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

Dear Allie, We are so happy to have found you this summer. It is amazing to see Nicholas stay so focused and interested for an hour at the piano. His love of music seems to have grown since we started lessons with you. We really appreciate your capacity to adapt to his needs and to keep him excited. Thanks!

In Piano, we focus on you learning the instrument and how to play it.

Basic reading is important so we do learn to read, and practice reading. (For example we go up to Alfred's Piano Book II; then switch focus)
We also focus on:
Chords
Improvisation
& Playing what you hear/ playing by ear

Actual materials and books I use:

Alfred d'Auberge Book One
Alfred's Basic Piano Library Book Level 2
The Secrets to Playing Piano by Ear, by Jermaine Griggs
+ other hand out materials

*Note: Students are not required to purchase any materials.

Any capable young child who can read, or adult can pick up these materials and learn on their own, but there are great advantages of having a teacher. Such as; bypassing unnecessary information, multi-dementional learning ( hands on, audio, visual), not to mention strategic planning by someone who understands your goals and cares about your progress.

I feel when my students win, I win. And I take personal joy and responsibility ...

About Brandi
My name is Brandi, I have been singing since the age of 3, and writing music, recording and producing since the age of 12. As a teenager I began playing piano and guitar as well. I am a college graduate of Jazz Studies; with a focus in Music Business, and Music Production and Engineer and was a vocal principle at Berklee College of Music; I attended Cuyahoga Community College, and Berklee College of Music. During my years of college I've studied, musical arranging, ear training, breathwork, songwriting, and many private musical lessons and more. Post college I have taken vocal mastery classes in Atlanta, GA.

As a musician/singer I have performed in front of as many as 3,000 people, I recently had a full page feature in a magazine, as well as had FM Radio rotation for a song I wrote, sang and produced, and sold music on iTunes.

*** Lesson Details ***
What a student may expect from this teacher:
Within 3-6 months students shall a have a good grasp on the foundation of their instrument/ craft; have a controlled sound; be playing/ singing what he/she hears; stronger, more defined tone; be able to play through/ sing through at least one song; have expanded range; confidence; and of course tackling personal goals set within the lessons.

My Goal is to facilitate bringing out what greatness already lies within and to assist in that growth, as well as teaching new information and the how to apply. I am not very strict on notation, as far as reading music (Piano and Voice). Lessons with me will more consist of the meatier portion of music how to use the instrument, developing the sound, understanding chord structures, playing/ singing what you hear, techniques and how to put it all together musically. However I will go through musical notation and reading chords, but it will not be a focus. (If you desire to play/ sing classically, I may not be the best teacher for you.)

For MUSIC PRODUCTION: Producing musical tracks and recording artist is the root and the focus. The curriculum is sculpted from LOGIC PRO X, REASON and PRO TOOLS software (subject to change). Students learn how to create what he/she hears and how to format it all together; Students learn how to track and record/ mix in the most professionally used software; Mixing and Mastering shall be touched upon as well.

When it comes to teaching and application of knowledge for each student I am serious about his or her growth; I don't want anyone wasting their money or time, so practice and dedication is necessary.

*** Studio Equipment ***
88 Length Keyboard with hundreds of sounds

I will teach you proper and comfortable techniques to play the piano. You will learn to play in all major keys and with different rhythmic styles so you can play songs you like. I include learning to play piano using both hands so that you can play melody and harmony simultaneously. I will also teach you how to read music for your instrument. My lessons are adjusted to the specific student's pace and their learning style. Piano is a great starting instrument for all ages because anything you learn on piano you can apply to most other instruments.

About Andrew
Since 2008 I've been studying and playing music in many different settings. I have performance experience with both classical ensembles and contemporary rock bands. Through these experiences I've learned a lot about writing music, playing music, and ensemble management all within a wide range of musical styles.

Since 2013 I have been teaching and training in various settings. In 2016 I moved out here to the Bay Area and have been teaching music full time. Since I moved my main focus has been to further develop my own personal ability and curriculum for my students. Currently I teach as an instructor at MTS Studios in Sunnyvale CA on a variety of instruments, including guitar, bass guitar, piano and ukulele.

I am looking forward to helping you further your musical goals and aspirations. Feel free to send a question if you want to as
k about anything before starting up.

I have been teaching piano for about 6 years, and over that time had 15 students. They were all completely new to the piano (and music in general) but throughout the lessons learned to play music in church, and just for fun at home! I love being able to take a completely new student who is willing to learn, and watch him/her learn to play and even enjoy (yes, enjoy ;) playing the piano.

Just imagine, seeing your child light up to the joy of music during music lessons, just begging to go back to their piano lesson. Watch and listen as he fills your home with music at the most recent family Christmas party.

Then time passes and they become little performers on the big stage in front of a big audience of their friends, parents, and fellow students. Enjoy the compliments you as the parent receive for your child's hard work and beautiful playing!

Eventually you begin to see him developing positive character traits like valuing hard work, all while making their favorite pop, classical, and blues tunes! You can't remember when you stopped having to beg your child to do their homework and get off of the iPad!

All these vivid futures are possible at my piano studio because of my core value that studying music should be an enjoyable experience. I offer a positive learning environment with piano games and tend the growing seed of music education through encouragement

Eric tutored me throughout the 2016-2017 school year in AP Chemistry. Throughout the year I played competitive volleyball and Eric was always very flexible with scheduling and making sure he could fit me in- even if it was last minute.

I could tell that Eric generally cared about how well I understood each piece of material. No matter how long it took for me to understand he never gave up on me; if one explanation didn't make sense to me, then he would reinterpret it another way. Even during times throughout the school year when I was just so over chemistry, he pushed me and he kept me on track.

The impact that Eric had on me was incredible and I highly recommend his services. Without Eric's help, I know that I would not have been able to receive an A in this class or be able to manage all of my activities.

I learned more about the subject of chemistry then I ever wanted too.... AND I ended up passing the AP exam! Thank YOU Eric!

I believe in teaching fundamental skills (posture, hand position, music theory, rhythm, scales) as well as doing some music that the students’ want to play and will enjoy. Playing music should be fun, and I am very patient when it comes to seeing each student grow and advance in their craft!

Learning to read music is the foundation to help students explore playing other styles of music they enjoy. I was classically trained from a young age and had no idea that it would help become the musician I am. I not only play classically but can pick up several styles of music by ear because of theory and ear training.

Maybe you are someone who can play by ear, but would like to learn how to read music and understand the theory behind what you play? Music theory is very important, and I love seeing the lights bulbs come on when students see how the songs they know play are really put together!

Music gave me a way to express myself in a way that no other activity could. And I hope to help my ...

About Brittany
I began taking piano when I was 7 years old. My older sister was taking lessons and I wanted to be like her. One day, my mom heard some music in the background, and my older sister went grab my mom to show her it was me playing with no sheet music in front of me. I was just copying what I had heard my sister play. That is where my musical journey began. None of my immediate family plays any instruments or sings professionally. My mom decided to put me in lessons, and I have been playing ever since.

I had such a wonderful teacher and she believed I could play anything she placed in front of me. Later at the age of 12, I started playing at church and playing for people who sang solos in church. It was my piano teacher and high school choir teacher who believed I could do music in college. I auditioned and was awarded scholarship money.
I never imagined over 10 years later that I would still be teaching music.

I am such a fun, patient person when I am with my student whether in the classroom or teaching privately. Music absolutely changed my life and gave me a positive way to express myself!! I’m so glad my parents thought enough to get me started with lessons!

I have been teaching in the public schools since 2012 and privately since 2013. I took a break from teaching privately to focus on teaching high school. As I begin teaching privately again, I look forward to helping students discover their full potential. Let’s get to work!

I work with students, starting at whatever level they are, to learn music as well as to build a solid foundation of technique and theory so they can begin to understand musical ideas. Learning an instrument should be both fun and educational, so teaching piano for me is as much about sharing the joy of music as it is about teaching skills.

About Richard
I am a musician and actor living in New York City who is passionate about sharing music with students of all ages. I have been playing piano for almost as long as I can remember. I trained classically growing up, and more recently have shifted my focus to playing jazz. Because of this, I am able to help students take their playing in whatever direction they desire, whether that be learning to play from sheet music or improvisation.

I recently graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where I studied theater. I've been lucky enough to combine my love of theater and music by working as a music director and composer on a number of productions.

Arlington, VA

Andrew is a gifted teacher who prides himself on making the student feel comfortable, no matter their level of experience or ability. This approach has worked successfully for many of his students, allowing them to be more open and understanding of some of the many concepts introduced and practiced while learning the piano.

Andrew is also very adaptable, understanding that each student is different, responding to unique learning styles and approaches that suits them better than others. But one thing remains the same, and that is the ability to enjoy the work as well as feel clear and measurable progress. This is any student's ultimate goal, and Andrew has a proven track record of success when it comes to learning the instrument.

Andrew will work with you to establish clear goals, if you don't already possess them, and be a steady and comforting guide for you on your journey - no matter how far you intend to go.

About Andrew
Andrew started playing piano at the tender age of 3. His mom wanted him to spend his endless energy on something artistic so she started him on piano lessons. Very early on it was clear Andrew had a natural, unique ability to connect with the piano. He played in school bands throughout grade school and began performing around DC in high school. While Andrew also plays guitar, drums, and bass, the piano has remained his first love and primary instrument.

At the age of 17 Andrew left DC and started college at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City. Andrew studied Jazz Piano but also led big bands, wrote and arranged music, produced and engineered. Shifting from Jazz to Rock in his early 20s, Andrew joined the band Ambulance LTD with which he played all over NYC and the US as well as internationally.

Upon returni
ng to New York from a hectic performance schedule, Andrew began assisting younger students at The New York Piano Academy—helping them to develop their playing skills, as well as their composing and arranging pursuits. The experience exposed his innate ability to build students’ talents through patience and encouragement, consistently taking them farther than they thought they could go. Andrew discovered his passion for teaching and began working with students of all ages, from 3 year-old children to seniors. As a teacher, Andrew focuses on making learning enjoyable while teaching all types of music—pop, rock, jazz, classical, and even Broadway. He tailors his programs to the students and teaches them not only how to play, but also how to hear, enjoy and love music.

Andrew is a gifted teacher and musician. I was beyond 50 when I started lessons with him, sure there was no way I could actually learn to play the piano. His patience, kindness and expertise overcame my fears and deficit of innate talent. I love his lessons and I enjoy practicing and I can actually play a few tunes!!! He is great at mixing things up - interweaving melodies and theory - and creatively finding new approaches to overcome obstacles.

I cater my lessons to the student's interest while still maintaining the importance of learning the basics. I use the John Thompson series but can use other methods as well if the student has already started using a different method. I have annual recitals which provide motivation for students to learn songs well to perform at the recital. I have access to festivals where students who wish to make piano more of a career, can compete for experience. I am interested in making lessons fun and enjoyable for the student, catering, when I can, to their musical interests.

About Lora
Music has been part of my family for generations! I LOVE music! I have specialized in voice and piano lessons for many years off and on. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, with a focus on piano and voice. I enjoy catering my lessons to the student's interest. I want them to enjoy coming to lessons and enjoy learning! It is very important that all of my students learn the "basics". However, we can still learn songs that they want to learn, while also learning songs with specific technique involved. Come see what music is all about! My hope is that I can show you just how fun music can be! I believe that you can learn music if you want to and that you are NEVER too old to learn!
