Antonella is an AMAZING teacher. I am an older adult student, with no music theory or background. She is very patient, accommodating, and uses very useful analogies that help me visualize what to do in a way that helps me learn and remember. My own weakness is in making time to diligently practice. I look forward to each lesson, and give her my highest recommendation.

Our experience with Antonella has been wonderful. She has high standards but is also extremely patient with young students. My daughter has learned beautiful technique but more importantly, she has expanded her mind, improved her sense of discipline and commitment and learned to play piano with a feel for the music. Working with Antonella is fantastic for the student and their parent/guardian. It's a joint effort. I highly recommend Antonella

About Daniel

I teach piano, composition, music theory, and ear training to students at every level of musical experience (including those who cannot read music). To date I have taught over 100 music students in private, online and classroom settings.

My biggest priority in teaching is to help you reach your specific goals and address your needs! Every student has their own objectives and learns at their own pace, and my job is to ensure that you get exactly what you want out of the lessons. Whether you’re looking to master piano basics, learn your favorite songs or pieces, write your own music, prepare for a theory exam, strengthen your theory skills, or improve your ear, I can help you achieve your goals!

I am available for both in-person and online teaching. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

-Subjects-

Beginne

r Piano - I have privately instructed over 30 students in beginner-level piano skills. I can help you master the basics of the instrument, acquire a basic technique, and learn how to read music if necessary. Once the fundamentals are in place, we can cover piano repertoire from a wide variety of styles (jazz, classical, rock, pop, international, etc.), and maybe even learn some of your favorite music and pieces! If you wish, I can supplement lessons with music theory.

Composition and Arrangement - To date I have helped my students write over 20 compositions of widely varying styles and characters. I can help you perfect the art of writing melody, harmony, accompaniment, counterpoint, forms, lyrics, songs, orchestration, or film music! I will provide feedback on your work, as well as instructive musical examples from the past.

Music Theory - I I have taught music theory for 4 years to over 50 students. I can teach you everything from music theory fundamentals (key signatures, scales, major/minor chords, chord analysis) to some of the most advanced topics in undergraduate and graduate musical studies (form, part-writing, counterpoint, advanced harmonic analysis, Schenkerian analysis).

Ear Training - I have taught ear training for 3 years to over 50 students. I am very experienced in assisting students in recognizing and notating everything from single notes and chords to complex passages of music. I have many useful learning materials and know effective methods for achieving aural recognition.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, please do not hesitate to contact me!

I have been attending online classes of arranging with Daniel for several months now and all I can say is that he has helped me greatly in progressing towards achieving my musical goals. Not only is he very clever and knowledgeable, but he can also adjust his teaching pace with the student's needs. The material he provided was excellent both from a quality point of view and from an organizational aspect. Overall, Daniel has been a great teacher for me and I am very happy I have found him. Thank you very much Daniel!

About Becca

I am a friendly, outgoing, and passionate music teacher! I play the harp and piano and absolutely love to spread the joy of music. I started playing the harp because my grandmother was a harpist and I thought it was the most beautiful instrument. After all these years, I still love the amazing sound of the harp. I completed my degree in Harp Performance from University of Denver's Lamont School of Music where I received a well-rounded education in both performance and academics (including theory, history, and technology). Please let me know if you have any questions- can't wait to get started!

About Annika

We're two sisters who grew up playing violin together. Now we'd like to share our love for the instrument with others in our community. Between us, we have 40 years of playing experience, and we're happy to vary our lessons to interact with all learning styles and ages. We both trained at the School of Music of the University of Northern Colorado, and have learned from some of the best musicians in the region. We look forward to getting to know you!

About Timothy

I'm a professional guitar player from Norway and a recent graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music. I'm currently doing my graduate studies at the Manhattan School of Music. I have toured in places like Argentina, Norway and Japan, and have played some of New York's most famous jazz rooms like Smalls and Dizzy's club at the Lincoln Center, and other notable east coast venues like the Side Door, Scullers, Regattabar and South Jazz Kitchen. I am comfortable showing you the ropes for any style you enjoy within contemporary music, such as rock, pop and jazz. I have won several notable awards and scholarships for my playing and writing, including the notable Berklee Jimi Hendrix award. I am excited to be working with you!

Lesson topics could be:
- Guitar fundamentals, technique and sound
- Pop/Rock/Jazz guitar playing
- Impro

visation
- How to learn from your heroes and favorite recordings
- Ear training
- Preparation for music college auditions/entrance exams

Schedule notes:
As I am a full time graduate student, I try to keep most of my teaching to Saturday and Sunday, and possibly Friday. However, you are free to contact me for other times, if these days are very inconvenient for you of course, and I'll try my best to work with you!

Age/experience notes:
If you're booking for your child I'd recommend booking 30min lessons, maximum 45min lessons. I'll recommend the same time frame for any age if you are a complete beginner, as I can show you more than enough helpful material in 30mins, that'll keep you busy!

Tim is an amazing teacher! I recently started playing guitar and Tim has helped me improve with each lesson. He is kind, understanding, patient, and knowledgable. Tim teaches students of all levels. If you do well in your lesson, he might even treat you to a homemade Norwegian cat cookie:)

About Maria

I am a professional vocalist, pianist, and guitarist.

Having played many lead roles including Princess Jasmine, Mrs. Lovett, and Peter Pan (to name a few) in my musical theatre journey, I want to teach my students how they can do the same by getting the lead role in their next audition!

Not only have I performed in lead roles, I have also lead worship at several churches, accompanying myself on the acoustic guitar and/or piano/keyboard.

I enjoy playing an array of other instruments as well including the violin, ukulele, mandolin, flute, saxophone, djembe, and whatever else I can get my hands on. (I love music!)

I have sung in Carnegie Hall, and have toured South Africa on a musical service learning opportunity with the elite choir at Mississippi College, Singers. I have performed on stage longer than I can remember, and am

the third generation of piano teachers in my family.

In my classroom (whether online or in-person), students can expect a comfortable and encouraging atmosphere in their lessons where mistakes can be had, but corrections will be made in both a respectful and caring way. I am here to encourage and correct, not to criticize.

All lessons begin with music theory training. Whether you are learning to sing, play the piano or guitar, music theory is the foundation of learning to play all music. The lesson will then go into the lesson curriculum I require for the specific instrument, and will then continue to the student’s performance pieces. Piano lessons have an added bonus at each lesson which includes a time of improvisation with the teacher!

I look forward to teaching and encouraging you along your musical journey that you are sure to love!

Maria is amazing on all levels. She is professional and builds a friendship with your children. Her faith and talent are a 10. I wish we could have kept her in south Mississippi but we know we had to let her go.

Tammy
Maria is an amazing teacher who puts a lot of emphasis on building correct vocal technique and making sure singers are using their voice properly and not damaging their voice. She has been trained by the best teachers and has quite an extensive resume with performances in Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York. As well as touring South Africa. She builds on what she has learned and shares that knowledge with her students. I highly recommend Maria!!!

Catherine
"After taking almost a 30 year hiatus from playing the piano, I decided to give lessons another shot. In my search for a teacher who works with adults and
can accommodate my crazy work schedule, I found Isaiah through Amazon Local Deals. After my first lesson, I was sure this teacher was a good fit for my reintroduction to piano. I conveyed my goals of playing more difficult pieces and Isaiah tailored my lessons to do just that. He also provided advice on how to mentally approach a piece of music. I enjoy playing now more than ever and look forward to delving into some jazz and improvisation."

"Andy is knowledgeable, patient and encouraging, and has such a top notch sense of humor, you will not only learn a lot, but have a great time doing
so! I've known Andy for 15 yrs as a fellow musician, he knows his stuff and knows how to impart it to others.
Whether you are professional working drummer, or someone just starting out, Andy is a perfect pick for your instructor!"
