About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. The best lesson that I've personally learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing musically. Personall

Awesome first lesson for our 14 year old daughter! She’s pumped to continue with Chris, and we’re pleased with the entire process so far.
Ron
I have been taking lessons from Chris for 5 years. He is very open to learn and teach all styles of music. in turn, allowing me learn and play music I though i never would. His guidance in "the technology" of music is also greatly appreciated.
The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.
I want to thank Chris for allowing to find my "Soul Mustard" He is the best you can find

My daughter had taken private singing lessons through her school for two years before working with Bethany. Her previous teacher had a set "curriculum", and she wanted my daughter to conform to her method, even though it did not seem to address either my daughter's strengths or deficits. Suffice it to say, it was not a great experience.
When we first contacted Bethany, I explained that my daughter just really loves to sing. It is an outlet for her. She's not trying to "get" anywhere in particular with her singing. She wants to learn good technique through songs that she enjoys, and through songs that fit her current range and gradually stretch her. Bethany has been amazing. She is thoughtful about song choices. She is encouraging, and has a very positive approach. She has really gotten my daughter to think critically about her singing. Often, my daughter will talk about what she is working on with Bethany, and it is always from the perspective that she can improve. It is a far cry from having her come out of her previous lessons feeling completely defeated. I really appreciate how Bethany takes kids where they are, and asks their input around what they want to learn. Also, she has been so flexible when we have had to change our schedule with her. She is really great.

I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old! I love to work with beginner students and give them the tools to be a great piano musician. It's also very energizing for me to work with intermediate students to hone your skills. I focus on proper technique, basic music theory, and a wide variety of repetoire, all while having fun together! I cant wait to help you learn to play.

I typically begin students on the Alfred Music Library, and then move to more classical repetoire, supplementing with pieces or genres that the student has interest in!

Typical lessons will include warm ups (scales, arpeggios, other techniques to warm up the fingers), working on repetoire (may include folk songs, broadway/disney, pop, classical, sacred), music theory (note and rest values, key and time signatures, interval recognition, ear training, note recognition, etc.)

Materials that students will need are a piano/keyboard of their own, two lesson/recital books recommended by me, and a theory ...

wow.... nice teaching
Rosie
Brittany works patiently, yet challenges my daughter to perfect her skills. She gives encouragement during the lessons. I usually clean my kitchen during lessons, but I'm able to hear the lesson being taught. I can hear the smile in Brittany's voice when my daughter learns to do something new.
Kathy
Brittany is a talented, patient musician. I am a 50+ year old woman that took lessons many years ago and started up again with Brittany last summer. I instantly felt comfortable with her, and am not only learning about notes, and fingering but also about theory. She's awesome & I'm learning so much.

"She is wonderful! She helped my teenage son, who had never sung before get a part in the high school musical. She is always prepared, on time, and able to coach the best out of even the shyest of students. She worked tirelessly with my son on improving his voice, knowledge of music and he tryout piece. I would recommend her to anyone who has always wanted to sing but doesn't think he or she can. My son is proof that Gfire can help anyone improve their voice and be confident enough to not only sing in public but get the part."

"Greg sold me my first acoustic guitar at 13 years old. It was a fender acoustic and I bought it with no knowledge and he pushed me towards an acoustic guitar he felt was quality and a great starter guitar. I taught myself for a couple of years and than my parents let me get guitar lessons When I was 16. I was really into heavy metal music, yet Greg made sure I knew the basics. His lessons were very individualized and made sure that when I was learning the basics that I knew what I was working towards. I remember one lesson he gave me a riff to work with, after I had it down he revealed to me that it was Miley's party in the USA. He showed me a song I wasn't interested in learning and taught me how I can make it into a genre that appealed to me. I told Greg that I was really interested In guitar upkeep and he taught me how he cleans guitars and does adjustments in his shop. Greg Campbell takes the time with his students and makes sure he his teaching them in what they are interested in, yet at the same time makes sure the basics are hammered home and are appreciated."

In fact, that's something I've enjoyed so much from Omar; this ability of his imparts the feeling of always having a very well-rounded music lesson, and the confidence to really experiment and grow on whatever instrument you are learning.

For months now, the Billboard chart has looked pretty similar each week, with Adele perched at the #1 spot with her hit album 21. Adele has maintained that spot for 18 weeks now,  needing only 3 more weeks to pass previous records made by the Bodyguard soundtrack and Elvis Presley's Blue Hawaii. With an accomplishment like this, we don't see her leaving the spotlight for some time. As a singer, you've no doubt heard about the importance of proper breathing.  In fact, deep breathing can he …
