About Monica
I'm a performing artist and music teacher. I received my Bachelors and Masters degree in music at Boston's New England Conservatory, where I was a member of the jazz, classical, and third-stream departments. I also spent 8 years gigging in Berlin, Germany and teaching adults and teenagers. However, I've always also enjoyed working with kids; especially introducing them to music through piano, language, movement, role-playing, and singing. I have the most experience teaching piano, and I think it's the best instrument to start on, if you don't know much about music, but flute was my first instrument, and singing is my forte!

Every week Erin is looking forward to her lesson and she really seems to enjoy learning as Monica makes the lessons fun for her. There seems to be a perfect balance of discipline and creative play that keeps Erin not only interested, but excited to learn! We could not be more satisfied.

Monica works wonderfully with my sons aged 3 and 6. She is patient and good natured while pushing them to continue challenging themselves. I usually hear laughter accompanying the lesson and both boys are always excited to show me how much they have progressed. After she leaves after the lessons, my little one always hollers out the door " I love you Monica!" I recommend her without reservation.

I have been taking voice lessons with Jimmy for the last 5 months. I never had musical training and was not even sure I had a voice ..... but I really wanted to sing and decided to give it a try. Jimmy is very knowledgeable about both physical and mental/emotional aspects of singing. It has been quite a journey..... but now I know that I do indeed have a voice. Of course it was a lot of work - Jimmy always had a homework for me - but It still feels like a miracle.
I am looking forward to further lessons with him so that I can keep learning.

I've worked with Ben in a few settings. His knowledge and talent is always apparent. He is patient but encouraging and makes music fun and engaging. I've seen him work with groups of young children and they are all laughing as they learn. And no matter who is playing or what instrument is being used, he has high standards and expectations of excellence which encourage every student to grow and learn.

I have nothing but praise for Brooke as an instructor. My son was a 10-yr old novice when he began his piano lessons with Brooke. She was engaging and incredibly patient as he played his way through almost 3 years as her student, from the beginning stages of learning to read music to practicing scales to becoming recital-ready. Although he has since moved on to study viola, the foundation he received through Brooke's instruction set the stage for a life long appreciation of music. Brooke's impressive musical talent, in combination with her ability to share her knowledge and love of music through teaching, puts her in a unique position to address the musical needs of a continuum of students from beginner to expert. She not only instructs, she shares her joy - and she is, indeed, a rare gem!

I was Brooke's piano teacher for 11 years. Brooke rates in the top 5 students I have taught in the last 31 years. From the very start, she showed incredible talent & skill. She was born to do this. Brooke is classically trained & highly knowledgeable in all aspects of music & theory. She also is an excellent performer. I also play professionally & it is my view that the best instructors are those who apply their art. Her outgoing & pleasant upbeat personality make her an enjoyable & patient teacher.

About Wyatt
I studied vocal performance at the University of Delaware, and have been teaching ever since I received my bachelor's degree in 2010. My goal is to help my students find their passion for music and learn to make music something they truly care about. My students have gone on to win talent shows, battle of the bands, gotten into competitive choirs, received leads in their school plays, and even move on to become music teachers themselves. I push my students to find what it is about music that drives their passion and use that as the focal point for directing their learning and growth. I prefer to be flexible in working with my students in order to make sure that they are getting what THEY want out of music and that they are not simply jumping through hoops I create for them. I thoroughly believe that music should first and foremost be fun,
shaping exercises and lessons through the filter of your own musical tastes.

I am a tubist, pianist, composer, arranger, cellist, and recording artist, but my passion is tuba (well, really all low brass, but tuba the most). I have studied with some great teachers, including Dr. Gail Robertson, and hold a degree in Tuba Performance from the University of Florida.

I teach all levels and ages, middle school and up, in tuba, euphonium, trombone, and piano. For lessons I like to focus on technique, theory, musicality, and performance to provide the student the best education possible. At the heart of teaching though is a love and appreciation of music and the instrument in the student, which I aim to foster as best I can. I am versed in many genres of low brass music, and my favorite is Wind Ensemble pieces
