Didn't think I could sing,but Laura taught me that I can. I play guitar in a rock band and I just bought a new mic,and I'll be doing back up vocals
I started looking for a piano instructor back in January. I have a particular goal in mind and after reviewing many instructor
I had taken piano lessons when I was a child, but gave that up; however, now I'm back at it! As an adult learner, I look for a few things: personality of the instructor, experience and educational background. When I reviewed Jeffrey's profile, he seemed to be the best match for me.
My first lesson with Jeffrey we discussed what my objectives were and he listened. He had me do some exercises to get a baseline as to where I was.
The other thing I like about his teaching style is that is very patient with me and give encouragement even though I may not seem to be doing well! Every lesson I build upon the previous and he gives me exercises that help in the areas that I struggle in. He also goes out of his way to help me find music that is suited to me (and free from the Internet). Jeffrey is also very flexible and understands when life happens and I may not get to practice as much as I want to or if I have to change or cancel an appointment. He is also great at communicating with the client.
Another encouraging item to mention, Jeffrey will be honest with you - I initially started with 30 min sessions, and those 30 minutes go very quickly! It'a time I move on to 60 min ones - he said I'm ready!
Jeffrey definitely has a passion for music and it shows through his teaching! What are you waiting for? Make an appointment today!"
Starting voice lessons was new territory for me; though I had been in choir, I hadn't had lessons that pu
Each lesson, though only a half-hour long in my case, includes new concepts that can be immediately applied for better singing! His approach is multidimensional, addressing pitch, tone, quality, and breathing at an intensity that varies according to skill level. Dan has experience in numerous styles and is able to offer apt tutoring to all of them. He has a unique ability to break down and explain concepts in singing so that they are tangible and attainable.
We have worked on pop, jazz, and folk so far, and in each area, I learned a bajillion new things! Dan's enthusiasm and knowledge combined with his engaging teaching style will benefit anyone who wants to improve their voice. I absolutely recommend Dan as a voice teacher!"
And they're not alone!

Learning skills is useless if you don't actually apply them in a real musical way. I use a large variety of popular rock songs ranging from Led Zeppelin to The Beatles to Metallica and so on. I use real band backing tracks which you will be able to take home to practice along with. I will then record YOU playing the guitar parts with the band!
I strive to give you much more than guitar lessons. I offer you a complete guitar experience! Come join the experience!
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classic Rock, Modern Rock, Metal and Acoustic rock styles. I also specialize in Music Theory and songwriting for the guitar.

*** Lesson Details ***
In the first half of the lesson, students can expect to learn music fundamentals from a guitar method book, i.e. how to read music; I also teach guitar tablature. Depending on ability (beginner, intermediate, advanced), I will show them chords, scales and how to play a guitar solo. The second half of the lesson is spent with the student learning their favorite songs and building a repertoire (song list) for possbile future performances.
*** Studio Equipment ***
home: Seating for parents. I provide the amp, instrument cable and music stand. I expect the student to have a guitar and notebook. If the student does not have a guitar, I will give a referral for reasonably priced guitars.

After receiving her Associates, she continued her studies at Rhode Island College where she received a Bachelors of Arts with concentrations in Music Theory and Music History. She showed a high aptitude for counterpoint and twentieth century theory, and concentrated on female studies in her musicology studies. While attending RIC, Kathleen had the benefit of studying clarinet under Ian Grietzer, principal clarinetist for the RI Philharmonic Orchestra and Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and flute under Mary Ellen Kregler. She also performed in a variety of chamber ensembles on bass clarinet, flute, and alto saxophone including New Music Ensemble, Sax Quartet, and Early Music Ensemble to name a few.
While attending RIC, Kathleen decided to open her own studio and offer lessons in clarinet, flute, saxophone, and music theory. After graduation, she has remained a community member of the Rhode Island College Wind Ensemble and is with the Rhode Island Wind Ensemble and Charles River Wind Ensemble performing on both bass and contrabass clarinet. She was voted into the positions of Music Librarian and Personnel Manager for the RI Wind Ensemble in May 2015 and frequently performs on piccolo in a variety of marching bands throughout Southern New England.
Kathleen is available to teach in three convenient locations including her studio in Providence located on the RIC Campus, the Amped Music School in Richmond, and your living room!

**** MY TEACHING STYLE ****
My teaching style is often referred to as laid-back, gentle, informative, and very supportive. My focus is on enrichment, encouragement, and great results. I don't work with “one-size-fits-all” methods. Each lesson is customized to make the most of each student's own unique abilities, limitations, preferences, and interests. Whether students prefer, or do better, with traditional materials, playing/singing along with their favorite recordings, jamming with me, or anything in between, I am more than happy to accommodate and bring out each student’s best!
I teach real music -- students begin playing music they love almost from day-one. For example, many of my piano and guitar students pride themselves on learning to play every song on Beatles One ... playing right along with the CD! Reading, playing by ear, improvisation (jamming), singing while you play ... there are so many ways to play and avenues to explore in music.
**** MY STUDIO ****
My studio is spacious (very spacious – no cubicles here!), well-appointed, and very quiet. Unlike music stores and multi-lesson facilities, there are no other lessons on the premises, no drummer going crazy on the other side of the wall. This means students can concentrate better and learn faster. There is also plenty of room for parents and siblings who may wish to sit in on lessons.
**** STYLES / GENRES ****
I believe that students make the most progress learning music they love and I am very happy to teach every student the style of music he or she loves most.
My most requested genres are: pop, rock, country, blues, film/television, classic rock, jazz, and classical. Some students arrive knowing exactly what they want, but most are happy to explore various styles that interest them in search of the perfect fit. It is not at all uncommon for a student to spend part of their lesson polishing up a Beethoven piece or jazz standard, then finish up playing the chords to “Hotel California” along with the CD. Another student might start off their lesson learning a Taylor Swift hit, then move over to doing some blues improvisation. Variety is a wonderful thing and it is highly encouraged.
**** MY STUDENTS ****
Over the years, I have taught students from four years old to eighty-somethings. I’ve taught absolute beginners (most of my students start from square-one), hobbyists, seasoned professionals, even a Grammy nominee and a Grammy winner! Many of my young students have gone on to perform in school bands / jazz bands and/or professionally. In all cases, they acquire a skill that will last for a lifetime and provide joy, enrichment, and satisfaction.

Having trouble learning chords on the ukulele? Here are some tips from ukulele teacher Willy M. that will help you master playing chords... Sometimes chords can be tricky to learn on any stringed instrument, and the ukulele is no exception. The good news is that with its nylon strings, a fewer number of strings, and a limited fret-board, learning ukulele chords is a little bit simpler than learning guitar chords. Nonetheless, there are still a few important things to keep in mind when … Read More
