Student lessons are designed and planned according to the his or her knowledge of music and level of playing as the student progresses. I teach the very beginner and those who have advanced in their playing.

About Charles
Charlie is a certified music teacher, who teaches in areas surrounding Wendell and travels to teach in the Raleigh, Zebulon and Knightdale areas. He teaches in his home in Wendell and travels to other areas on certain days. (See availability)

He first began teaching guitar and piano during his music studies at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS. At the university and after receiving his degree in music education, he has taught and performed in various musical settings and venues which has included the genres of classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk and country. Besides teaching and performing, Charlie also is a songwriter who writes songs for his groups performances and teaches his more advanced students songwriting.

Drawing upon his education and experiences as both performer and teacher, he strives to rel
ate his background to his student's learning experiences and progress. As each student comes with his or her individual musical wants and interests, student lessons are designed to meet these needs of a particular student. Charlie has young students of ages 5 to 14 as well as students of upper ages. According to a student's level of musicianship (beginner, advanced or in between), students are taught how to read music, music theory in relation to their progress, chords, scales and how to write/compose their own songs. He has designed a method of teaching which is full of great musical exercises & fun illustrations for the young student to enjoy while learning skills on their instrument.

For example, students can began with simple fingerings of chords & beginning melodies played in slow rhythms to allow the student to develop at a comfortable pace. Students that can not read music notation begin simple reading exercises of note recognition, time signatures, note values, eye hand coordination and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
I design student lessons according the age, playing level and music related interests as lessons can cover a broad range of interests and musical styles. For my beginning students- to develop their understanding of playing chords and rhythms,
I teach chords as they relate to musical keys and some common rhythm patterns used in many popular songs.

For guitar students, I have designed & developed my own materials for guitar (sheets & accompanying CD) which guide students in practicing chords progressions, strum/rhythm patterns & scales/melodies in relation to chords. My students have shown much success in these methods of concentrating on developing that essential sense & feel for playing different rhythm styles. Piano instruction is centered on learning to read music notation and music theory as it relates to the student's progress.

As students advance, more emphasis is placed on improvising on melodies, different approaches to soloing and chord extensions and substitutions. Also, students are taught music theory as it relates to their progress to enable them to create their own music.

I have a good selection of method books and materials to fit each student's level of musicianship and choice of playing style(s) to extend upon their interests and goals.

My approach to teaching is to make lessons fun and enjoyable in a comfortable and relaxed setting to allow the student full
concentration on each lesson. But, also to provide the necessary guidance and encouragement to challenge and motivate students to improve and develop natural strengths and new skills.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a good selection of materials (many I've developed), extra instruments if needed and recording equipment. The student will need the instrument and an amp for electric guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Teach theory as relates to students progress- examples, chords as relate to major scales, understanding of I IV V chords
in popular music genres, develop knowledge of chords & rhythmic sense before learning songs. I teach in styles of blues,
rock. jazz, country and classical.

I began piano lessons with Charlie as a total beginner and he quickly helped me find my footing. He was always patient and encouraging and asking questions designed to make sure the lessons were structured in a way that would most efficiently achieve my own personal goals. I'm usually a pretty nervous person, but Charlie has a warm presence that makes it easy even for people like me to be able to open up and focus on what's important, the music. I highly recommend him to anyone who's been thinking about learning the piano but hasn't quite been able to take the plunge yet.

We enjoy having Mr. Charlie come to our house and teach our 5 year old son Xavier how to play the piano. He makes sure our son stays focused and goes at a pace that works for him. Xavier has learned a lot, and we are grateful to Mr. Charlie.

I come from a musical family where everyone was able to play piano at a high level and considered pursuing a career in piano for a long time. Although violin had become my primary instrument, I still perform and teach. I teach any level from beginner to advanced!
Some of the books I use - Piano lessons, Level 1 James Bastien, J. S. Bach 24 Fuges and preludes, L. Beethoven Piano Sonatas, A. Mozart Piano Sonatas

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem Kolesov and I'm 22 years old. I'm a second year Masters student at Roosevelt University majoring in Violin Performance.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in Voice, Violin and Piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I had to go through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach
my first language to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Artem was incredibly helpful when I was taking my Russian classes. My parents never taught me and I finally decided to learn so I could converse with my grandparents.

Artem was amazing at showing me how to speak naturally and fluently without ever getting impatient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.

I graduated from NYU, and earned a Master degree in Music Performance. I've been teaching Piano and Flute since I was in college. My students are ranging from 3 years old to 50 years old. And now, I am teaching at Cary School of Music, I have rich experiences to teach students. I always create different teaching and practicing strategies/methods for different students. I usually combine piano/ flute lessons with music theory, I teach music theory as well as piano and flute lessons while we're having lessons.

As a professional performer, I know how to train my students into a music professionals. However, my students will not feel much pressure to be a music professionals, because I want y students to learn it happily with a high music level standards.

About Julie
I have a very complete formal classical music education background. I have been learning piano when I was 5, and I have been learning flute when I was 9. I was educated in music school during middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate school (New York University). I also took many classes, which are related to woodwind teaching in college. I've started my teaching career since 2011, I am good at providing different teaching methods for different students. It would be really fun to work with me, you will definitely like playing flute and piano.

I worked in an orphanage when I was a sophomore. I worked as a general music tutor, some of them were kids who needed special cares, and I did a successful work there. I taught them how to play with music.

And I have organized four solo flute concerts and other different kinds of
chamber and orchestra concerts. You will definitely learn more than you thought form me!!

Hi,

I have been playing classical piano since I was three and a half years old, and have taught students of all ages and levels since I was fifteen. I was awarded the Associate of the Royal Conservatory diploma for Performers at age 17, the highest academic standing awarded by the Royal Conservatory of Music. I have studied music theory, including harmony, counterpoint, music history, and music analysis. I have also performed in benefit concerts, competed in a large number of contests, and collaborated with other musicians in a variety of ensembles.

I'm a very easygoing instructor and am very flexible about meeting my students' needs. I've studied under instructors with a wide variety of teaching skills, and can adapt my own teaching skill to suit the preferences of my students. I absolutely love the piano and really enjoy sharing my passion with others. Please let me know if you have any questions!

About Audrey
I have been playing piano for 20 years, and am certified as an Associate of the Royal Conservatory (ARCT) professional performer by the Royal Conservatory of Music.

My classical piano training not only involved playing the piano, but also involved music theory, music history, music analysis, and ear training. I can provide a comprehensive instruction experience that is specifically designed for every student's level and goals.

I am a very easygoing and supportive instructor, and am very flexible about meeting my student's needs and preferences. I would love to mentor students who share my passion for classical piano music!

I teach to develop musicianship but also to help establish balanced minds in my students. I instruct my students so that they build discipline and persistence, and create good music along the way. I hope you will leave my classes inspired and with an appreciation for music that will bring a lifetime's worth of joy!

About Monica
I am a Taiwanese pianist, singer, producer and composer who is based in New York City. I graduated from Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University with a Bachelor of Music, specifically piano performance. I am currently a M.M./M.A. candidate at Mannes College of Music, The New School. Additionally, I teach Mandarin Chinese to those who would are curious about Chinese culture and language.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano professionally since I was 3, and violin since I was 7. I have been teaching piano for almost 10 years. I teach students basic knowledge of piano and music, such as technique, how to read music, the right position and so on. Besides the foundation, I believe that musicianship is the most important thing to learn and experience. I hope to not only teach my s
tudents how to play the instrument but also the appreciation and love for music. I also perform regularly in United States, Taiwan, and UK.

As a Chinese teacher, I often find lots of similarities between successful piano students and Chinese students. Both require consistent hard-works and strong eagerness to learn. I have a flexible curriculum that will accommodate each student's need.

I teach my students in my conveniently-located workplace in downtown Manhattan and online through professional equipment. I can also travel to student's home in New York City if the commute is doable. I look forward to meeting you!

I have been playing music since I was 3 years old and have been teaching for the last 5 years. I set up every lesson plan to match what the student would like to learn as well as making sure to meet the parents goals and expectations. I work with all ages and all levels. I also work very well with those that have special needs such as Autism. Every lesson is engaging and exciting, it is never a dull moment.

About April
I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music between schools, the San Diego Youth Orchestra. I currently work with several students with special needs such as Autism and other Neurological delays. My son is Autistic and music was a great way for him to express himself. I found that the other children I work with on the spectrum have more abilities to express themselves through music then with words. I also work with students that are not yet comfortable with themselves and getting them to breath and enjoy the music helps bring them out of their shells.

I regularly find myself jamming o
ut with another music instructor every chance we get. Music is a great relief and enjoyment that I want to share with as many people as I can. I am currently in college getting my Bachelors degree in History with a minor in Music.
