*** Lesson Details *** Sheer technique is necessary but insufficient to play an instrument well. Aural skills, that include the study of functional tonality and voice-leading are important factors that impart musicality. This is of great import if the prospective musician wants the audience to truly enjoy his or her performance !
Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.
A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.
*** Studio Equipment *** The In-Studio lesson take place in the living room. Driveway parking. No pets.

the opportunity to cross over if they would like. I pay attention to my students needs and wants. I would like students to be open minded about the work that they are being taught but I also want to take their interests to heart. If a student brings me music or a monologue that they would like to work on, I will review it and try to incorporate it within our studies.

My daughter started a series of lessons with Kristen in preparation of her high school play audition. It was very clear that Kristen is extremely knowledgeable of all technical aspects of singing & able to clearly communicate. My daughter really enjoyed her initial lesson w/ Kristen & is confident that she will be well prepared for her school’s play auditions.

Hi! My name is Keith, and I've been a music teacher for twelve years, and a BOE Certified English teacher for eightyears. I have been playing guitar and bass for 15 years, and have been playing ukelele for five. I can't wait to teach you your favorite songs, as well as help you write your own!
I also offer tutoring in English Language Arts for all grades from kindergarten to college. Whether you need help starting or finishing your essay, or need help understanding a difficult text, I'm here to help you out. I also tutor for PARCC and SAT. Have the comfort of knowing a State of NJ certified teacher is helping you out!
I've been seeing Keith for guitar lessons for several years now. Everyone says learning an instrument as an adult (I'm in my 40's) would be insurmountable, but Keith made it easy. Highly recommended.

I found Keith to be very reliable, patient, knowledge in several subjects, flexible with problem solving and understanding of children's moods and personalities. He comes with a wide array of talent and is willing to meet your child at his/her interest level and learning style. He even switched from tutoring reading to art because my child totally refused to be tutored in reading.
He came prepared and on time every time, ready to tutor in either subject because my child was difficult, uncooperative and would not stick to her scheduled sessions. Through all this Keith remained dedicated, supportive and patient. He worked with us even to the premature ending of our sessions, and even then he remained understanding and supportive of our decision to end.
If there's one tutor I'd recommend; it would be Keith. He WILL make every effort to reach your child and engage them in the learning process to attain positive growth and development, you will NOT be disappointed in any way.

I am here to support and encourage you and help you to understand mathe
Ms. Consuelo was very kind and patient with my daughter and helped her to understand concepts I was not able to help her with. She prepares assignments in advance to prepare the student and takes her time in explaining it in a way that they can really understand the math problems at the core. Thank you so much for helping my daughter again, Consuelo! We look forward to working with you again in the near future!!
