About Heath
Hello there! My name is Heath. I've been teaching drums for five years now and I love it. I've also been playing professionally for over a decade, mostly in Houston cover bands which incorporate all styles of music, and also at my church (St. John the Divine). I'm extremely blessed to teach and to play music for a living! My style of teaching is broad. I like to play pieces and exercises with my students in order to create a more visceral and intuitive learning experience. Reading and timing is also very important, and I want to give my students the tools to continue their learning and fun with many drumming books and other materials for life. Let's have some fun and learn together!

Heath is the best percussionist instructor I know! He was able to not only show me a deeper appreciation for percussion and drums, but also how well a good percussionist can keep the rhythm flowing. I have learned as much from him as I have put forth the effort to learn. The only complaint I have is my own hectic schedule.

Heath is a masterful teacher. He has the ability to listen and understand where I am in my learning curve and adjust his lessons to my skill level.. In few short months I have learned more from him than I have accomplished in years on my own. I would highly recommend this instructor to anyone serious about improving their skills.

About Elly
Hi, my name is Elly. I was inspired to learn violin when I was very little, after seeing a performance of Riverdance- I fell in love with Irish fiddle and begged my mom to let me begin lessons.

I began classical violin lessons in elementary school. By middle school, I had worked my way up to the advanced school orchestra. In 7th grade things changed- we found out that both of our viola players would be missing our next concert. My orchestra teacher begged me to take a viola and methods book home that weekend and learn the parts to fill-in for our absentees. I ended up loving it! I pursued classical viola all the way through middle and high school, then at the University of Arizona, as part of numerous string ensembles and symphonic orchestras.

I continued independent studies of violin, frequently attending Bluegrass and Irish music
jams and festivals.

One of my favorite musical experiences was being part of the Northwest Intergenerational Community Orchestra: a full symphony in which members ranged in age from 9 to 90, and skill levels from first-year player to retired career professionals. I started as a guppy and ended up a respected mentor after several years' participation. Being immersed in that environment was simply amazing, and showed me that age and experience are never a limiting factor in the kind of beauty that can ensue from mutual musical passion.

I will teach all ages and abilities, and I would prefer to travel to you. If you are unable to host, I can possibly arrange an alternate location. Thanks for visiting my profile, and I hope to hear from you!

About Noah
Hello and thank you for showing interest in lessons with me! My name is Noah and I’ve been a musician for 15 years. I graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts with a Bachelors degree in Jazz composition. When I first started playing the guitar I loved 80’s and classic rock! Towards the end of middle school I discovered Jazz and fell in love with it and have been playing and studying it ever since! I’ve been a teacher for 7 years and love my job! Trust me, we’ll have a lot of fun learning whatever genre you’d like! We’ll listen to songs, learn them by ear and dissect them if you’d like, so you can learn how to write your own songs! If you’re interested in attending a top tier school like Berklee, I can help you prepare to guarantee you ace your audition and can even help you get ahead of the game by preparing yo
u for your entrance exam so you can skip some entry level courses!

I love teaching and sharing the gift of music with the world and those who want to learn. If you’ve been wanting to get serious with the guitar for awhile, don’t hesitate anymore! I guarantee you’ll see a noticeable improvement with your playing within one month or LESS!

So let’s get started today!

Looking forward to teaching and having fun together!

Noah

I've only had my first lesson, and I'm a complete novice with the guitar (I'm an adult with some limited musical background). Noah asked me about my goals and musical interests so he could tailor the class to meet my needs. He taught me how to tune the guitar before getting into chords, finger placement, strumming technique, and reading the tabs. Throughout the class, he was incredibly patient, encouraging, and explained everything very clearly without over-complicating the topics. He gave me written "homework" to practice (which I now understand how to read!!). I'm really psyched for my next lesson and pleased that I chose Noah for my instructor.

Noah is by far the best teacher I've ever come across! Here's my story:

I was accepted into the Berklee College of Music as a Vocal Performance Major. However, my knowledge of theory, arranging, and harmony was nothing close to where it needed to be to succeed in my first semester. I ended my first semester with a 1.9 GPA. For the next semester, I was put on academic probation and was required to meet with a Berklee peer tutor once a week. This is where I met Noah. He was my peer tutor. Within our first session alone, I was immediately relieved that there was SOMEONE out that cared enough to take the time to really teach me everything that I needed to learn about theory, harmony, and arranging. He was extremely patient and kind. Where most students who were in my predicament dreaded to meet with their peer tutors weekly, I looked forward to meeting with Noah. In fact, I called the head of the tutoring department and asked if I could meet with Noah twice a week instead of once a week! Noah didn't hesitate, but instead agreed and we met twice a week! We even met for tutoring sessions when it wasn't required! He literally saved my second semester! I went from completely failing tests two getting A+ on all of my exams! At the end of that semester, I went from a 1.9 GPA to a 3.0 GPA!

Not only is Noah just amazing at everything theory, harmony, and arranging, composing, etc. and an amazing teacher that actually cares about his students, he's also an amazing musician! A multi-instrumentalist at that! I've had the pleasure of seeing him play multiple instruments in multiple styles and genres and he's by far the best musician I've ever come across. I would recommend him to anyone! Really! I'm not just saying this! If there is anyone you should be talking to or learning from in regards to all things music, Noah is the guy to go to!

THANK YOU NOAH!!!

Many years ago I was coached in a chamber music setting by Cornelia (in one hour the piece had been wholly transformed), and when my daughter, then 6, came to me and said she wanted to play the violin, I knew exactly whom to call. I was a little worried then that Cornelia might not take beginners, but to my joy, her attitude is (excuse me for putting words in your mouth, Cornelia) "Of course I take beginners! How else to keep them from developing bad habits in the first place?" Fast forward to now: that 6 year-old became the concertmistress of the NEC Youth Symphony in Boston, has traveled around the country and around Asia playing the violin with the highly competitive National Youth Orchestra, and continues to play with excellent players to this day--and all because she was set on the right path by Cornelia, who is focused and kind. She's also demanding of excellence, and wildly enthusiastic about your progress. If you want to pay for lessons but don't really care about what kind of job you do, go somewhere else. Cornelia is the real deal. Violin isn't easy: if you want to start right, start here. If you want to get better, you've come to the right place. If you want really to think about the music you're playing, she's your guy. Plus she's got a great laugh.

Cornelia is fantastic! We have been going to her for years. We have also heard from friends that she is the best violin teacher in the area. It would be hard not to agree. If you want to learn to play violin, she is the teacher for you. If you do not want to work hard and be accurate with your playing, then probably better to move on.
