I can help beginning students on piano learn the basics.

About Thomas
Thomas J. W. is an active music teacher, composer, adjudicator, and clinician in the greater Philadelphia area. He has over fifteen years experience as a concert band director, marching band director, jazz improvisation instructor, choral director, private instructor, and marching drill writer. His directing career has included small rural band programs, small metro programs, large high-achieving suburban programs, and non-profit youth bands. In addition to his band compositions, he also has over forty unpublished vocal arrangements to his credit, most written for use with collegiate men's a cappella groups. Thomas taught over 600 online and local private music lessons in 2016.

Thomas has a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from The Pennsylvania State University. He holds a teaching certificate in the states of Pennsylvania
and New Jersey and has taught at the secondary level in both states. In addition to both instrumental and choral ensembles at Penn State, Thomas was a student leader in the Penn State Blue Band and a member of the brass section of the Cadets of Bergen County Drum and Bugle Corps in 1993 and 1994. He served as an Associate Director of the Warren Junior Military Band of Youngstown, Ohio from 1995 to 2005. He also served as a visual staff member for the renowned North Penn Marching Knights of Lansdale, PA for one season in 2004.

He is a current adjudicator with Drum Corps International and Cavalcade of Bands. He is a member of MENC, PMEA, NJMEA, ASCAP, CASA, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and the National Band Association. He appeared in the Marquis Who's Who Among American Educators in 2004 and 2005, an honor rarely bestowed upon teachers, as students who appear in the Who's Who Among American High School Students must nominate them. He currently is a music teacher at the Center for Performing and Fine Arts of the PA Leadership Charter School in West Chester, PA and resides in Downingtown, PA with his wife and two sons.

Thomas will happily work with students on the autism spectrum or students with ADD.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of each student. If a student is involved in school music ensembles, we will work with their lesson books from school in addition to material outside of the books, including SmartMusic, Noteflight, and teacher-created materials. We will focus on building proper tone production and individual technique - something that often is difficult to learn in a large ensemble setting.

I am capable of starting a beginner student on any band instrument including percussion, any classical string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass), and piano. I can begin a student on drum set and work with them through their first method book, but I would then recommend they find a specialized drum set teacher after a period of six to twelve months.

For advanced students, I work from selected conservatory etude books on developing advanced skills and can work with students on audition pieces for honors bands/orchestras or college auditions.

My lessons are a half-hour once a week, with the option of working for 45 minutes or 60 minutes.

With over 10 years of teaching experience, I am able to prepare students for polished, accurate, playing with an emotional connection. Beginners will learn to read music using method books that are supplemented with authentic classical pieces (as opposed to beginners' versions of popular pieces). Intermediate students will learn classical pieces from all musical eras. We will cover all major and minor scales, arpeggios, sight reading, and aural skills.

About Cindy
Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply proper technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. We will work on balancing your vocal registers to give you control over the troublesome middle range. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If y
ou're interested in playing piano, you will learn how to read music and/or play by ear. You'll learn scales, chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and basic music theory. For singers who are interested in piano, I've developed a great technique to teach you how to accompany yourself.

For songwriters, I can help you write stronger lyrics and set them to music appropriately.

In general, I'm pretty upbeat and fun. However, I expect you to practice. When you practice, you hear and feel the difference and everyone's happy! If you don't practice, you'll remain in the same place, and it's frustrating for everyone. :( Please, please, please practice! :)

My degree in music education and wide range of experience allows me to accommodate different learning styles. I have a knack for breaking down seemingly difficult or mysterious concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I also understand the demands of being a full time musician, and can offer advice to students who are interested in going that route.

I would love to help you enhance your enjoyment of music by making it fun and easy for you to learn!

From the moment we walked in Cindy made my shy daughter immediately feel at ease. Her approach and ability to connect with students at any age (I overheard her lessons with an older woman), makes her a gem. She provided helpful tips to help improve while practicing. With each lesson, my daughter walked away feeling more confident and clear on what she needed to practice at home. I would definitely recommend her.

All ages are welcome! Whatever style, song, technique, theory, or concept you want to learn, it is within your reach, and I can help. Your progress is the ultimate success. Send me a message to talk more!

About Andy
I am an educator, composer, and performer based in Cincinnati, OH. I have studied piano for 25 years with masters and doctoral degrees in piano and composition from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

Piano students should expect progress in technique, reading, aural skills, and improv/composition. I enjoy teaching a variety of ages and levels from beginners to those that want to major in instrumental performance. I draw out each student's natural creativity, motivation, and strengths so that they develop into a unique and independent musician. The ultimate goal is to teach myself out of a job.

As a composer, I have been commissioned to write pieces for pre-college students across the country, concert pianists, Cincinnati Public Radio, and regional piano competitions. I am also the director of the Creative Co
mmissions project that pairs creative professionals with pre-college music students to collaborate on creating unique and accessible new works.

Giving people the tools to create music is truely my passion! I started playing the piano at a very young age, and I see great value in teaching people an instrument. In 2009 I started offering lessons locally and now I am looking to expand my business online. I specialize in beginner/intermediate piano lessons and I have had experience working with special needs kids.

About Elizabeth
I have been playing the piano for 30 years. Music is my passion! I have worked with worship teams as the pianist /keyboardist at various churches for almost 20 years, 9 of those years I was the music/worship director. I have worked with a traveling group of musicians, teaching music theory, musical performance, song writing, and basic instruction on an instrument. We recorded six albums of original music during my time with the group. I went on to teach on my own, focusing on music theory, and piano to elementary, jr. high, sr. high, and college aged students. I began teaching piano in 2009 and it quickly became the most fulfilling job I’ve ever had. I have taught kids as young as 5, and while I especially enjoy working with beginner students, I have enjoyed working with the intermediate students who have come my way as well. I also ha
ve experience working with kids who have special needs, including those who are on the Autism spectrum.

I believe that music is not only enriching for the soul but also a life enhancement that builds confidence, self-discipline, and problem-solving skills for people of all ages. I always strive to be inclusive, patient, playful, and flexible, thus creating a safe and welcoming learning environment that supports each students’ individual self-expression.

Each lesson will incorporate ear training, theory, sight reading, practice tools, composition, and improvisation – skills that endure for a lifetime.

Learning any skill requires patience and discipline. I require all students to practice thirty minutes a day which you'll be tracking in your practice and goal journal. The type of practicing depends on what you seek to accomplish. Invest in yourself by earning a little every day, and you will always see improvement.

About Katherine
Hello, and thank you for our interest in music lessons!

I've been playing piano since age eight, and teaching for over ten years. I love teaching teens and adults who are interested in writing their own music, but have experience teaching children as young as three years of age. My passion for piano shows through my own compositions, and I love exploring the meaning of life through music. I've recently released a full album of avant-pop piano songs called "Blind Opening" and am excited to get back into teaching music after a brief hiatus during the album completion.

Even before my exposure to piano at age eight, I've enjoyed my own form of composing by dictating the sounds I imagined in my head on paper. My initial inspiration to compose music on piano came from the movie “The Changeling” starring George C. Scott. The film’s superna
tural plot, based off of a ghost story that took place in Denver (but was portrayed in Seattle in the film about a composer haunted by tragedy), first drew me in to the idea of working to become a pianist composer. It also called upon my belief that music is a way of connecting with otherworldly entities and experiences. I've been defining and honing my composition style and skill while paving my creative direction since my conservatory studies. Aside from solo music work, I also draw, create stop-animation videos, paint, sculpt, and write poetry - much of it inspired by my favorite composers, Star Trek, and the great outdoors.
