As one of my students you will be encouraged to learn some songs by ear and be creative by making up their own pieces. You will definitely need to learn to read notes, as well.

Each lesson will have you playing what you practiced during the week. And each lesson will also have you learn something to take home to perfect.

But most of all, I would hope you would leave with a sense of well-being, confidence and encouragement in the wonderful experience of making music on the piano.

I love for my students to perform as much as possible. We play in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and recitals. If a student comes up with a performance venue, we will certainly try to do it.

About Sue

I have been teaching for years with all ages of students. Piano lessons will include learning to read notes, ear training, theory and technique, creating your own music and learning to play the piano with others. The curriculum varies with individual needs. My philosophy is a little laid back but

My Daughter is loving Piano lessons with Sue. Can’t thank enough 😊👍🏻
John
I can't say enough good things about Sue! She is knowledgeable, patient, receptive to new ideas, has a great sense of humor.... She teaches both children and adults in her home (and more recently, on-line). I've been taking lessons with her for about 6 months, and have made a great deal of progress, as well as learning songs and techniques outside of my original "comfort zone".

Thank you, Sue!

I'm a complete newbie and Indigo has been a great instructor for helping to get me going! I appreciate that she brings in some basic music theory from the get-go so that you have a basis for understanding / navigating the instrument. I appreciate her patience and emphasis on slowing down and practicing with consistency.
Ross
Indigo is a fantastic teacher! I've taken lessons with Indigo both online (recently) and in-person (when I used to live in NYC). Indigo's teaching style really resonated with me - she provides incredible support and encouragement for beginners and her instruction has always helped me understand the weird nuances of singing and how to unlock my voice. She has also helped me with more advanced music theory/guitar during lesson to compliment the singing and help with songwriting. She also makes the online format work really well (which I can't imagine is easy) and I've always felt like the online lessons were as valuable/productive as the in-person lessons I took before I moved.
Maddie B.
I have been self-taught for a couple years and felt very stuck, learning disjointed online material, but Indigo has absolutely put me on a musical path! It feels really empowering to finally start having a grasp on theory and technique. I highly recommend.

Hello! I can work with beginner flute students where I will teach them the fundamentals of flute playing as well as the standard flute repertoire. The fundamentals I teach will create a solid foundation of musicality as well as flute playing ability that they are able to take with them to higher levels of learning if they so choose to pursue a career in music. I look forward to working with any students in their journey as a musician!

Singing techniques in a Musical Theater style voice, repertoire selection, and audition preparation. Keep in mind classical technique is a great foundation for all styles of singing, so depending on student's level we will start with classical exercises before moving on to their musical theater repertoire.

I just received my Doctorate in clarinet performance from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. During my doctoral program, I was the teaching assistant in clarinet for three years. Previously, in May 2016, I graduated from California State University with a Master in Music in clarinet performance under the teaching of Hakan Rosengren, international soloist. Finally, prior to my doctorate studies, I studied with Boris Allakhverdyan, principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I am a Buffet Crampon USA sponsored artist.

I have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and America and I am seeking clarinet students of every level and age.

I will focus my teaching on your needs and can help you improve technique, musicianship and sound production. I also can help you get ready for auditions and recitals.

"My 12 y/o daughter loves working with Lawrence! He makes her laugh while making sure she is doing the drills and techniques correctly. We don't have a piano at our home, but he brings a keyboard or a guitar every time (mostly guitar). Lawrence likes to involve the parents (me) so my daughter can feel more comfortable, but now my daughter tells me to go away! My daughter used to feel very insecure for some of the vocal warm-ups they previously started with, but now she does them even in public! My daughter has big dreams to be on TV and I feel very confident that Lawrence will help her get there."

"Joey has been teaching piano to my 9 year old son for almost a year now. We are very happy with the relationship our son and Joey have, and with our son’s progress. My husband and I both studied music in college, and we’ve both been music teachers at various points in our careers. We know a solid teacher when we see one. Joey somehow manages to set high expectations for our son while remaining laid back and fun. He lets our son explore different types of music as our son’s interest changes. We find that flexibility refreshing and necessary to keep young kids interested. Out of all his activities, our son loves piano the most, and a lot of that has to do with the quality of teaching he receives from Joey. Speaking of flexibility, Joey has adapted his teaching seamlessly to teaching via zoom (his lessons were previously taught in our home), and even put together a lovely virtual recital for all the kids in his studio during the covid-19 social distancing situation. We heard about Joey from friends, and continue to recommend him to others."

Are You Making the Most of Your Violin Practice?

Gifted musicians don't appear from nowhere fully-formed and ready to take to the concert platform.  For every 45-minute concerto or 90-minute recital you hear, hours of hard work have gone into every note, every phrase, and even how the music is approached, learned, and memorized! It may seem strange to say that proper practice is the most nerve-wracking element of mastering your violin, but if you don't know how to structure the session, how can you ever be sure that you're working on the rig …
