About Vincent
I have taught for 18 years, giving both private and group lessons. I am a professional musician, having played in numerous bands, recorded and played shows. I have taugh all ages, and all elvels, and all styles. I play a number of instruments including piano, guitar, bass, violin, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica, in addition to writing and singing. I took private lessons for over 10 years, and also studied music in both high school and college.

*** Lesson Details ***
A student can expect to be treated with respect, and have a lesson tailored around their abilities, interests, and amount of practice time. I make the lessons fun but also informative. I try to get to know my students so that they feel comfortable. I am laid back, but also determined that a student practice well, and learn not only the instrument but music fundamentals a
s well. I try to show students that learning music is a lifelong pursuit that can provide all types of fun and personal fulfillment, in addition to being a potential career and social outlet. After 3-6 months, the student will be playing songs, good ones, not just scales. They will also have learned basics, such as chords and scales, as well as sight reading.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement converted into music studio with instruments, and piano and keyboard. Parents can sit in on lessons. Street parking available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide all lesson materials, listening examples, and, on occassion, an instrument. I often use my laptop to play songs and tutorials for students (who don't buy records like we did in the old days.) Generally, students must provide instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I tailor my lessons based on three factors: a student's interests, their ability, and their amount of practice time. I do not use a cookie cutter method of teaching because each student is different. I have studied, formally and informally, rock, pop, blues, jazz and classical. My specialties are rock and blues. On occasion, I will use method books, such as the Schirmer books for piano, but only if the student clearly seems to benefiting from them.

Justin showed my 10 year old son how to play the trumpet and did a great job. He was patient, made my son feel comfortable and was able to help him get a better sound by the end of the very first lesson. Jalen does not give high praise easily so we were impressed that he enjoyed learning from him. My mother listened in on some of the lessons and she also said Justin did a great job - friendly personality and great tips on how to play. We highly recommend him.

Jackson, NJ

We will work on whatever style the student will like to learn! If they are a beginner, we will go through all of the basics slowly and very thoroughly. I like to start by having my students get familiar with the piano and exploring all of the sounds it can make. Students will learn how to identify notes on the piano and also through reading music. Lessons will always be fun and engaging!

About Matt
I attended West Chester University from 2011-2015 and graduated with my bachleor's in music education. I performed in the marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, jazz ensembles, various trumpet ensembles, and a brass quintet. One of my trumpet ensembles made it to the semifinals in the National Trumpet Competition. I backed up various world famous trumpet artists during the International Trumpet Guild Conference at Valley Forge in 2014 such as Bobby Shew, Randy Brecker, Tine Thing Helseth, Canadian Brass, and many others. I took lessons from Robert Skoniczin and Jean Christophe Dobrzelewski during my time at WCU.

I can teach any style that you are interested in and can take students of all ages. I believe it is important to have a good musical foundation so we will go over music theory as well in lessons. I have extensive experie
nce teaching trumpet, guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, and saxophone. We will play whichever style of music you prefer. Lessons will be fun!

My students receive individualized lessons based on their interest and ability. They learn to read music notation, play core piano literature, learn theory, music history, and composition.
All students participate in a yearly recital and have the option of entering the NJMTA Piano Festival to be adjudicated each year.
I have a two-fold goal with each student: that she or he become an excellent musician, and that we have fun together as that happens.

About Jennifer
I've been playing the piano since I was seven years old. After going to college and studying music education, I started teaching piano and have fallen in love with this job. I love music and I love sharing it with others. I've been teaching piano for over 30 years. My students receive individualized lessons based on their interest and ability. They learn to read music notation, play core piano literature, learn proper playing technique, theory, music history, and composition.
All students participate in a yearly recital and have the option of entering the NJMTA Piano Festival to be adjudicated each year.
I have a two-fold goal with each student: that she or he become an excellent musician, and that we have fun together as that happens.

Lesson Details
Each lesson from the very beginning includes some technique, whether that is pe
ntascales (5-note scales), full scales and chords, etudes, etc. Then we work on repertoire, learning new songs which challenge the student to expand his/her musicianship skills, with beginners using a lesson book while intermediate and advanced students become familiar with the traditional body of piano literature.
For beginners, theory is taught using accompanying theory books. For more intermediate/advanced students, theory is incorporated into the lesson using the music the student is studying.
Composing can be added into the lesson when the student is ready. The student is guided through the process of writing a song and then enters it into the computer and prints it out for their very own copy. When enough students have completed original compositions, I host a composition recital where students can play their creations.

I'm an adult piano student who's never taken any piano lessons before. I committed myself to 5 lessons with Jennifer to see if we would be the right fit for each other. After about 10 lessons, I can tell you that she is an excellent piano instructor! She is very detail oriented and knows when to challenge you and when to provide more guidance. When you don't understand something, she's very good at explaining it at multiple angles. She jots down notes on problem areas, which helps when you practice. During the lesson, she ensures that you have good foundations, such as hand positioning and other motor skills. She prioritizes a portion of the lesson to important fundamentals, such as scales, chords, and music theory. All the while, she always keeps things interesting through a variety of songs. Overall, she's great at bringing out my strengths and addressing my weaknesses. I feel as if she's fully invested in me to be the best that I can be, so I'm confident that she would do the same for you or your child. Definitely would recommend!

As a "(much) older student", and former high school teacher, I am very impressed with Jennifer. Every lesson begins with the basics- scales and chords, then on to technique and theory, using pieces that I've selected myself to build my repertoire. Jennifer has a very calming and matter-of-fact manner, which I love, and her knowledge of musical history and way of casually imparting it is a pleasure. I see myself taking lessons with her for a long time to come, and would recommend her HIGHLY to students of all ages and ability levels.

In piano lessons my goal is to not only give students a knowledge of the instrument but also a love for music and playing. In lessons we will learn how to read music and the basics of music theory while also learning fun songs. For younger students I like to use fun teaching aids as we learn music theory to engage their attention and make learning enjoyable. I also seek to get to know my student's musical interests so that as we progress we can include fun songs into our lessons like Disney songs, popular music, or church music.

About Katie
Katie has been teaching piano lessons for the past 6 years and has been teaching private voice for 3 years. She is currently available to teach lessons in her studio and at student's homes. Through lessons Katie has helped students explore repertoire that they are interested in, build a foundation of classical technique, learn music theory and ear training, and build a love for playing music.

Katie earned her Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance from James Madison University. She is currently a graduate student at Westminster Choir College where she is continuing to study classical voice through her studies of Vocal Performance and Pedagogy. She looks forward to using her training to help all of her attain their musical goals and to have fun in their lessons.
