I began studying ear training in high school, and have taken several semesters of college-level ear training. In addition, I have studied piano at an intermediate level. Ear training is an amazing tool for improving intonation on your instrument and interpreting music in general. I have the following resources at my disposal for use in ear training lessons:

- The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis (Clendinning and Marvin)

- The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis workbook (Clendinning and Marvin)

- The Musician's Guide to Aural Skills Sight-Singing book (Murphy, Phillips, Marvin, Clendinning)

- Materials and Techniques of Post-Tonal Music (Kostka and Santa)

- Grand piano (in my College Studio and can be used online)

- Yamaha electric piano (in my Home Studio and can be used online)

Helen is very patient and knowledgeable. She pays attention to details (which I love) because then I won't develop bad habits that I will have a hard time correcting later.

Hi I'm Justine- classically trained clarinetist and teaching artist. I have about 8 years of teaching experience and my students play with school bands, honor bands, and youth symphonies.

When first beginning clarinet you can expect basic tone production and note reading ability. As you progress you will be able to play more demanding repertoire and refine your technique.

I teach a wide range of repertoire from soundtracks to the great classical masterpieces. I welcome beginners to explore classical melodies, pop tunes and soundtracks and intermediate to advanced players usually stick to classical works.

I bring more than thirty years of experience in teaching piano to students of every age and level. My lessons are tailored to each student's level and comprehension. I use a comprehensive approach to teaching piano incorporating technique development, learning of theory, piano performance and sight reading. In my lessons, I select and combine music from different music periods and styles. I also help students who want to obtain certificates from Associated Board of Royal School of Music (ABRSM) or Trinity College London (TCL) to excel in these examinations.

About Ruth

I have played piano since I was six years old, when my parents enrolled me in my first music classes. I continued my music education while going to elementary, middle, and high school. Ultimately, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Music from Butler University, located in Indianapolis, Indiana

Ruth has been a wonderful teacher! I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking to just start piano all the way to advanced. She is extremely encouraging and a brilliant pianist.
Deeptha
Ruth has been a wonderful teacher for my 12 year old son Vivek for the last 3 years in Princeton. She made learning piano a truly enjoyable experience for him and always teaches with patience and kindness. We are planning to move overseas and hope to switch to online lessons so he can continue to learn from Ms Ruth!
Wallis
I have been with Ruth for about 4 months but I am very happy to say that her dedication and attention to detail has given me the impetus to want to keep learning encouraged by her thorough experience. She is a great teacher.

I am a recent graduate of DePaul University School of Music for my bachelor's and am further continuing my graduate studies at the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University. I am very passionate about helping a student find their own voice while making music. Music is something that is so special and I truly believe that everyone deserves to experience it. I am open to teaching all ages and am very flexible with days and times that I teach. I cater to what the student wants to get out of lessons and will focus on specific areas that need greater attention to further enhance their playing ability.

Because she has so much experience playing cello from a young age, Jessica always comes into each session with more new tasks for me to work on. I love having lessons with her because you quickly build a strong bond. Honestly, it has never been a dull moment with Jessica and her bubbly personality. She is the best I’ve ever had!"
