I'm passionate about sharing my knowledge and helping students find their own unique voices, no matter what kind of music they'd like to sing. Lessons include vocal technique plus work on repertoire, music theory, and/or sight singing, depending on the individual student's interests and needs.

Piano was the instrument I ran to when I was tired of classical guitar in college. As a consequence, I develop a very special relationship with it. I've learned to use it as a vehicle for expressing music in a way that's more free than any instrument that I do. Things I teach on piano usually include...

-Basic technique: scale fingerings, finger mechanics, dynamic posture
-Music Learning: how the piano makes music easier than with any other instrument, and what is the most efficient way to learn music
-Improvisation: how to explore music freely using easy keyboard techniques
-Composition: how to find and discipline your creativity through exploratory piano exercises

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

Very comfortable, laid back and unintimidating interaction. If you are thinking about playing sitar I strongly recommend you make arrangements to have at least the first lesson in person if possible. He is a very experienced professional and willing to adapt to your individual needs.

I have an extensive knowledge of bass clarinet and soprano clarinet. From beginner to advanced, I can provide my student with knowledge to be a better clarinetist and confident for their next performance. Most clarinet teachers do not specialize in bass, making a lot of their advice well intended, but misleading. I can help you learn efficiently and effectively to be the bass clarinetist you want to be.

About Amanda

My name is Amy! I specialize in teaching clarinet, but have a warm preference for bass clarinet. From classical music to jazz and contemporary, I can help. I posses a Bachelors in Music Performance from Grand Valley State University and am currently working on a Masters in Music at Ithaca College.

"I know it's too early to write a review after the first lesson. However, I was surprised by the wonderful way Sergio handled the time and the introduction for such a hard instrument like the alto sax.
My son Moneer is so excited to continue learning how to play alto sax with Sergio. In short Sergio is a very talented music instructor!"

Melody's knowledge and drive are truly contagious.

How to Play Guitar Chords in Different Positions up the Neck

Chords are the foundation of all of those guitar riffs you love so much. Here, guitar teacher Kirk R. walks you through the basics of guitar chords and the importance of knowing how they're constructed... Guitar is an amazing instrument, not only because of all that it can do, but also because of how great it can sound when not doing much at all. One of the ways that guitar is most often heard is by strumming the standard chords that beginner guitarists learn. However, I often inter …
