Arielle-Khrystiana P. Lockport, NY

About Arielle-Khrystiana

I began my musical studies at the age of six, starting off in my elementary school orchestra and chorus. A passion and talent for the violin led me to placing in competitions and festivals, and performing professionally in quartets and at wedding ceremonies later in high school. I began performing in rock 'n' roll bands in 2008, and began a teaching career in 2009. My students and students' parents have praised me for my musicianship, patience, and compassion. I am also an operatic soprano and musical theater musician, thus making me a diverse and well-rounded instructor. I teach in the traditional style, combining some Suzuki elements. For beginning voice lessons, we will focus on vocalizes, theory, and appropriate repertoire. I take a different approach to every student, realizing that

Wonderful results, and a lot of fun!

If you're looking for someone to start the violin with, look no further than Arielle D. She can start you from the ground up, even if touché never read or played music a day in your life. She will try different approaches if the standard book stuff isn't working. She's also great with scheduling, very easygoing with make-up lessons. She also made me feel very comfortable and relaxed during my lessons.

Antonella has been teaching piano to my two daughters (ages 8 and 12) for a number of years now. They have progressed terrifically during that time and really enjoy learning from her. She has a gentle approach but also keeps the girls focused and accountable which is important. They have had multiple opportunities to perform in recitals and competitions that are always enjoyable as well. Antonella is a excellent teacher that I would highly recommend.

My 7 year old daughter started taking piano lessons this year with Antonella. I am amazed that within such a short period of time she has learned so much. She has progressed from 'Mary had a little Lamb' to really beautiful more complex pieces in what seems like no time.
Antonella is a really excellent teacher, very patient and supportive, yet constantly pushing (gently) to make the student better. She is an incredible pianist herself and really encourages Aoife not just to learn and play the notes, but to really use good movement and techniques which make such a difference to the sound of the piece.
Antonella is professional, committed, highly skilled and very passionate about what she does. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her as an amazing piano teacher.
Jacob F. Lancaster, NY

About Jacob

Music has been a crucial part of my life for nine years, and I have been taught by the best of the best. I have studied classical, jazz, and contemporary styles of playing, and I know the importance of each one in today's culture. I am a student of the craft, majoring in music in college while continuing private lessons in all of the instruments I play.  *** Lesson Details *** In every lesson I teach I try to incorporate both technique and groove (feel). These are the most essential building blocks of all musical instruments and they assist in creating a better musician, not just a better instrumentalist. Although I try and bring something new every week, I cant promise that you will become the next Buddy Rich by your third lesson. I can, however promise that if you put forth the effort ...

Lena is a very gifted teacher and I recommend her without reservation for both child and adult learners. Her greatest strength is her learner-centered instruction.

You can rely on Lena to turn up on time, be prepared with lesson hand-outs tailored to your needs, make lesson time fun, provide age- and skill- appropriate instruction and be kind, patient, and encouraging.

Lena is reliable, flexible with lesson scheduling and easy to contact when needed. Her knowledge of music theory is impressive as is her understanding of the physics of music production. She is also an excellent clarinetist.
