About Joshua
Joshua M. earned degrees from the Oberlin Conservatory of music and Jordan College of Fine Arts. He composes and performs with several chamber music groups in New York City.

Bass lessons always begin with 5 minutes of scales, arpeggios or etudes to warm up. We will sometimes take a few minutes to analyze the music we perform, as that helps us understand how to perform it.
For beginners the focus is on technique, for more advanced students we tend to focus on how making good creative performance choices.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson is different this is just one sample:

10 minutes: warm-up, scales or other technical exercises
5 minutes: analyze music to perform, work on music theory and history.
30 minutes: work on music

*** Studio Equipment ***
Computer, microphones, Sibelius 7.0, etc

*** Travel Equipment ***
I
provide sheet music. I expect students to have their own instrument and for electric instruments their own amp.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, avant-garde, modern

About Michael
Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ensemble also know as Metagroove. During this time Michael
had shared stages with guitarist John Scofield, Singer Ike Willis (Frank Zappa Band), Medeski Martin and Wood and The Disco Biscuits among countless others.

Michael has completed a Master of Arts in music education as well as Bachelor of Music in bass performance. Michael is qualified to teach on bass, upright bass, guitar, drums, piano, voice and a rare instrument called steel pan (steel drum) among others. Michael performs as a freelance musician. He can be found performing regularly at private parties and events around the greater Philadelphia area. He has performed playing most styles and genres of music. Among these styles are Pop, R & B, Blues, Hip Hop, Jazz, Calypso, Flamenco, Latin, Pop, Musical Theater and Rock & Roll.

Michael is a trained professional and prefers to cater his lessons to the individual need of each student. He believes that each student is unique and will encounter challenges in their own manner. Michael likes to supplement his lessons using musical interests of the student. C. has been known to arrange popular pieces for recital performances for his students. Some of the pieces he has arranged for his students include Something in the Way She Moves (Beetles), Long distance Run Around (The Who), Iron Man (Black Sabbath), That' €™s What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction), Hall of Fame (The Script) among many more. Michael encourages his students to use the music they love to challenge their ability and cognitive processes. Michael has the experience and training required to inspire and motivate you to become successful not only in music but in your daily endeavors.

*** Lesson Details ***
Michael has over twelve years experience teaching music and chooses to cater his lessons to the goals of his clients. He does not follow a set curriculum because different students tend to have different goals and expectations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Logic Pro X, Reason, Fast Track pro audio, Double Bass, Piano, Rhodes Electric Piano, Acoustic guitar, Electric Guitar, Flute, Sax, Clarinet, trumpet, Electric basses, Steel Pans (drums), etc.

Audio recordings of each lesson are free of charge and available upon request. C. is capable of creating demos and audio recordings as well as audio production of original material.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Laptop, Guitars, PA system, Basses, Metronome, Method Books, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Steel Pan lessons are available. Access to a steel pan(drum) is a requirement for this specialty.

About Tanesha
Hello There!

Prices have been recently updated!

If you are under the age of 18, please have a parent or guardian book the lessons for you.

My name is Tanesha. I have been playing guitar for a little over 7 years now. I am a self taught guitarist. Guitars have always been a passion of mine, ever since I could remember. I was always drawn to learn more on guitars and one day decided to teach myself. I wanted to teach myself to play so that I can develop my own teaching style, as well as my own methods of teaching. When you are an absolute beginner and you look to learn from other people, their way of teaching can be a little challenging. But with my teaching style it is more broken down. I understand the struggles and difficulties that comes with learning guitar, that's; why I am here to break it down and teach as clea
rly as possible. I am a very caring person, I love to help others and love to see them improve daily. My main goal is for all of my students to learn and benefit from my teaching. I love when students are excited and eager to learn more. Putting effort is very important in order to succeed. if you don't put effort, it will not work.

You can expect to learn the following things:
-Parts of the Guitar
-Song Tutorials
-Picking Patterns
-Strumming Patterns
-Notes on the Guitar
-Chords
-Tablature
-Watch video lectures
and Much More!

Emma taught my daughter for two years, and I have nothing but gratitude for her. Emma was only in high school then, but she showed marvelous aptitude for teaching, she encouraged my daughter and fostered in her a true love of music. Being a classically trained musician myself, I can tell you how impressed I was with Emma's level of playing as well as her knowledge of teaching theories and techniques. No lesson is ever a waste with her.

I've been teaching guitar for over a decade now, and electronic production for a little less than that. Hit me up!

About Micah
My exploration of sound began in 1998 when I played my flute through a crybaby wah and a tube amp set to 11. Since then I’ve been taking cool sounds and making them cooler. As an audio engineer I have worked with artists such as the Grammy winning Digable Planets, STS and Truck North of the Money Making Jam Boys with Black Thought, Ursula Rucker, Serpentwithfeet, and many more,

I specialize in recording and mixing soul and hip-hop music but have experience in every genre and with sound for film. My lessons use this experience to support students development of their own style. I do not teach rules, instead I focus on the big picture, understanding your tools, and critical listening.

Micah is our "go to" engineer on most of the Artists First Records recording projects. I have relied on his skills for many years and he has shown an ability to handle my artists needs from both a creative and technical standpoint. He is also an excellent teacher because beyond his expertise, he simply loves what he does and he's able to share it with students. I give Micah my highest recommendation.

About Jeremy
I have been teaching music for over 10 years now. I come from Indiana and I worked as a brass teacher for several state finalist high school marching bands.

I believe that students need to feel free to make mistakes. When students feel comfortable it is easier for them to focus on getting better and are much more receptive to feedback.

I currently play euphonium for the Philadelphia Wind Symphony. I have also performed professionally for several musicals including West Side Story, Pirates of Penzance, and Animal farm. My previous performance experience includes being principal trombone of the Audubon Symphony Orchestra, principal euphonium for the Michigan City Municipal Band, and performing a solo work with the IUSB Wind Ensemble.

My main specialty lies with classical trombone but I also have plenty of experience with jazz music.
