Manda S.

Boston, MA

About Manda

As a graduate of the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory and Boston University Metropolitan College, Manda has obtained a diverse education in performance and performing arts management. As a clarinetist, Manda has performed in Illinois, Alabama, Ohio, and Massachusettes as a soloist, chamber musician, and in large ensembles. Her performances have been well received for their diverse programming and superior musicianship and technique.

Manda began teaching clarinet and piano in 2008 while she was still in high school. She began with beginning and intermediate musicians and quickly received the op
portunity to coach advanced players at one of Illinois' top high school band programs. While studying in Ohio, she began teaching clarinet and piano at the Joyful Noise Neighborhood Music School. There she continued to have one of the largest studio classes of both instruments for two years. Currently, Manda continues teaching in Boston, MA through Takelessons and Musika as well as through her own personal network.

Outside of her performances and teaching, Manda has held positions as a fundraiser and administrator at the Verb Ballet company in Ohio, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in Massachusettes, the Brooke Charter Schools in Massachusettes, as well as the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Using her skills learned in these positions, as well as from working with mentor Dr. David Cutler, Manda uses an entrepreneurial and logistical mind set when running Manda's Music. You will be met with a professional atmosphere and efficently run lessons and administration.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have their at-home-work as well as practice techniques written out in a journal for their reference every week. We will begin working slowly so the student and I feel comfortable with each other, as well as with the instrument. Each student is different, so there is no timeline that is set to work from. We work at a pace that is comfortable yet continuously challenging for the student. Over all, Manda works to acheive her goal for students to gain an appreciation for music, and look forward to coming to lessons each week.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lesson spaces include stands, pianos, and chairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide pens, pencils, metronome, tuner, and small repair equipment. I expect students to bring their instrument (for clarinet only), assigned music, assignment journal, and specified instrument equipment (i.e. reeds, swab, cork grease, etc).

*** Specialties ***
Classical music, popular music, and beginning jazz.

I am in my mid-20s, and I just started to learn piano. I do have an experience of learning piano as a little kid, but it wasn't fun. It was tedious, non-inspiring, and simply boring. Since I slowly developed interest in classical music as I grew up, learning to play piano is one thing I wanted to do for quite a long time.

Nevertheless, I had plenty of anxiety starting something new as an adult. Aside of that, I don't own a piano, and most of the lessons seemed to be dedicated to children.

As a new year's resolution, I determined to find a way to learn. Then I found 'takelessons', which makes paying for and scheduling/rescheduling lessons an easy task. Subsequently I found Manda, who had excellent qualifications and credentials, along with near-perfect reviews.

Now I am very happy that I started and I feel extremely lucky to have Manda as my first-as-a-grownup teacher. She is very knowledgeable and forgiving. These qualities of her makes learning piano very interesting, which is often not the case since inevitably a lot of repetition follows with learning.

What used to be an awful Monday, which most grownups would agree on, transformed to an exciting time to explore a part of the world I haven't exposed to that much. Juggling work and practice isn't so bad as I thought so far. I look forward to keep learning from Manda, to accomplish my goal of playing piano pieces that I love listening to.

I've taught classroom music in public schools in Templeton, Boston and Somerville, Massachusetts, as well as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I also have experience teaching private piano in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

*** Lesson Details ***
I generally use the Schirmer and Thompson books for piano lessons. I don't consider myself strict but I do expect students to practice at least an hour a day.
3-6 months I do expect them to be able to start playing the piano and to know their notes and their locations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is in a music room in the home with an upright piano w seating available.

Jeanne is a fantastic teacher

Jeanne is a great person and very easy to communicate with and I personally think that makes for a nice teacher/student relationship. I can ask her questions and she explains things very well. I feel in the 4 short weeks I have been working with her that she has taught me quite a bit. Each week I leave there with something new to challenge myself with. I would highly recommend Jeanne as she is a wonderful piano teacher. Thank you Jeanne. I look forward to this journey of learning.

Chris B.

Rockport, MA

About Chris

Chris Baum is an American violinist, composer, educator, and recording artist. A pioneer of modern string technique, his strength lies in his versatility, consistently pushing the boundaries of the violin while molding his playing to fit ensembles and genres often deemed unsuitable for the instrument. Trained in a demanding classical environment, Baum expanded his musical vocabulary at Berklee College of Music, where he studied contemporary repertoire under Eugene Friesen, Mimi Rabson, and Sheldon Mirowitz. He graduated with honors in 2010 with a degree in film scoring and composition.

Chr
is' growing list of credits include collaborations with Bent Knee, The Dear Hunter, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Dropkick Murphys, Amanda Palmer, Symmetry, Art Decade, Ben Levin, Guy Mendilow, Jherek Bischoff, and the Video Game Orchestra, who recently featured him as a soloist at Boston’s Symphony Hall and on the ensemble's recent tours in China and Taiwan. He currently resides in recording studios, tour buses, and occasionally, Rockport, MA, where he teaches music at Brookwood, Pingree, and Rockport Schools.

Chris' teaching curriculum consists of material and techniques custom-tailored to the individual, with a strong emphasis on technique, theory, ear training, and improvisation. He has been sharing his passion for the violin to musicians of all levels and ages for the past decade, whether their interests lie in classical, jazz, rock, folk, avant-garde, or somewhere in between.

I think the 5 star description sums it up nicely, 'Best instructor ever'. I've worked with Chris for a few months now and his knowledge, friendliness, and ability to to teach are astounding! He teaches in a very dynamic way, adjusting the lesson on the fly to make sure you are learning what you need to know, when you need to know it, and at a pace that works well. Definitely recommended!

Katrina M.

Portsmouth, NH

About Katrina

I am a 20-something, self-taught musician. I have been extensively studying music, primarily piano and vocal performance, as well as guitar for the past 13 years. I am a composer and producer of my own songs, and have extensive experience with teaching children as young as three-years old. My philosophy is that music should be very enjoyable to learn, but that quality must not be sacrificed. My method of teaching focuses on classical and jazz music, as well as music theory and contemporary music, such as songs from movie soundtracks and pop songs. I am engaging and fun, allowing flexibility fo
r each student to concentrate on what they most want to learn.

My daughter has had a wonderful experience learning to play the piano with Katrina. The pace of learning and music preference has been catered to my where daughter is at that moment. On Katrina's first day in our home she asked what our goals and expectations were for my daughter. My daughter had a desire to learn piano in a very casual manner, purely for her own interests and enjoyment. She has been able to learn a range of music from classical to jazz with some old radio favorites and holiday music thrown in for good measure.

We truly enjoyed inviting Katrina into our home on a weekly basis for more than year. Her patience with children coupled with her knowledge of the piano and ability to teach are unmatched. Our time with Katrina has been an enjoyable experience.
