Elisabetta has been teaching my daughter since January 2017. She has always been so patient and kind. My daughter has so much fun during her lessons and has learned so much.

I've taken lessons from a number of double bass teachers. I've never found an instructor who gave me exactly what I needed until Geoff. He's the consummate professional double bass player and teacher. Geoff is intelligent, courteous, patient, humorous and above all knowledgeable. So, if you're a serious upright bass student, I would, without hesitation, recommend Geoff Bowater.

We will start on fundamentals of letter structure, color theory and composition. I will introduce the tools and how to properly implement visual effects and techniques using those tools onto the students desired media of choice.

We will progress from the basics of drawing techniques all the way to painting on larger canvas and possibly walls.

Paint and supplies must be made available by the student.

Through my individualized approach, we will reach your goals. As a professional piano teacher for 20+ years, I encourage my students to feel comfortable enough to comment or ask questions during lessons, practice, and even develop a love and knowledge of music that will last a lifetime! I want the ineffable joy of playing and learning to play piano to be the reason my students attend lessons!
Proper technique is paramount, so ALL students are taught the correct technique / hand position regardless of age/ level; poor habits are difficult to break!
Each student gets a Lesson Book and a Music Journal. The journal is where I clearly document the week’s assignments (practice) and add tips and/ or specific techniques. Although I’m classically trained, I encourage students to play what they love!

I hold an annual Student Recital every June.

(NYSSMA prep offer all levels.)

*It is highly recommended that you have or plan to purchase a keyboard or piano on which to practice.

About Trina

I'm a patient, friendly, enthusiastic, classically trained pianist with an MA in music theory and 20+ years experience as a professional piano teacher. Lessons with me are personalized. Some want to be classical prodigies and some want to play their favorite songs. (Most students do both!) However

The sound of the flute is full of potential for a wide array of colors and textures and can be played in a variety of styles: classical, jazz, funk, Afrobeat, rock, and more. I teach my students through exercises catered to their musical passions. In addition to the basic technical elements of playing, I focus on listening across the musical spectrum. I encourage the use of long tones and air support to improve tone, flexibility, and all repertoire.

"The real deal. I have been acting all my life. Additionally, I have worked in Europe, the UK and the USA. When I moved to LA, I had the chance to study with Addison and it was absolutely worth it. Not only does he know how the industry really works but also, he has a deep understanding of character and script analysis. Addison is going to help you to discover the different layers that each role has. When it comes to auditions, working with Addison makes a difference. Believe me, you will be " ready to be ready" and focused. Finally, there is no doubt in my mind that Addison will help you to become the best actor you could possibly be and most importantly: to book acting jobs.
