I believe in the extraordinary power of music to communicate, to inspire and, often, to heal. That belief underlies all my work. I’ve been a classical singer for 30 years and have sung leading roles with the Caramoor Music Festival, the Aspen Music Festival, the Britten/Aldeburgh Festival, Glimmerglass Opera and the Orchestra of St. Luke's, among many others. I’ve also been a church professional for all my entire career, singing sacred music of almost every genre, including gospel.

My strongest attribute as a teacher is my sensitive and expert touch with students of all ages and personality types. The fundamentals of vocal technique underlie all my teaching, but the individual approach is tailored to each student, whatever his or her age or experience.

My goal is to help you find the power to express through singing your unique self. It doesn't matter whether your voice is professional quality or whether it's even "good" in the conventional sense. It's YOUR voice. It has its own ...

Nancy is kind and caring. She really takes the time to get to know you and your voice in order to craft a method that works best for you. I started out with no real experience and a bunch of bad habits, and she has been able to effortlessly work with that. I look forward to my lesson with her every week. I knew the moment I saw her profile that she stood out from the rest. Don't hesitate to give her a try!
Neena
She is honest and super helpful
Kimberly
Nancy is the best instructor i could have hoped for! I was very shy and insecure about my voice. She knew exactly how to work with me to sing confidently.
After a month of working with Nancy, i realized that with practice, i too can become a good singer. My goal is to have a mini concert for friends this summer. I’m confident that my lessons with Nancy will get me there

I tried to teach guitar in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play lead guitar, or how to finger pick. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me,

I am a unique teacher because I have an emphasis on rock music! I have played in bands of various musical styles before so I have a well-rounded experience in various rock genres. I am open to providing lessons in a variety of ways as well. I can teach online, at my house, or at your house. I’m very inclusive and I will teach people of all ages and experience levels and as a transgender woman myself, I am very accepting of people of all genders.

My focus on my lessons is to meet you where you’re at in terms of skill and what you want to learn whether that be covers of other songs or music theory or how to write your own music.

The student must be self-motivated and consistent about his lessons by, self-motivated, I mean, that if it's a child, he should be learning because he wants to learn (not his parents,etc.} There is no one answer to this question (what can students expect from my lessons) because that would depend on the students interests. Ive
studied clasical. pop. rock, classic rock, jazz and improvisation. If, for example, the student is an adult who is taking lessons because it's something he wanted to do all of his life, he'll pick a song that he likes and we can start working on it right away. If necessary, I'll transpose it to an easier key, but he won't leave my studio without knowing exactly what he needs to practice until his next lesson. I tell students (especially parents) not to push practicing. If the student isn't practicing at home, he has lost motivation. He can stop and come back when he wants to learn. I consider it m job to keep the student motivated by suppling what they ...

Skillful and professional instructor.

Roseann has a very pleasant personality and makes learning the guitar enjoyable and exciting for my six year old daughter. She gives clear and concise instructions that my daughter can understand and follow on her own while practicing at home. I would highly recommend Roesann to anyone interested in learning the guitar.

"Andrei has been our weekly music teacher for more than three years. He teaches my son (now 9 years old) to read music and play the drums and the piano, and he teaches me to play the guitar.

Andrei has been nothing but reliable and generous with his time. He is proficient in music history and theory, in a wide range of musical styles, on multiple instruments. His patience, diverse knowledge and skills along with what appears to be an intuitive approach toward each of his varied students, has been very effective for us. Also, he knows A LOT of music, has a great ear and doesn't seem to mind working with us to play whatever tunes we come up with each week.

If you or your child wants to learn to play an instrument, this is the guy!"
