Private Music Performance Teacher

I teach all levels of piano. ear training, music theory, music performance. I teach old fashioned classical music, as well as playing by chords (usually preferred by adult beginners) but also will incorporate
playing by chords with classical training, because it enhances knowledge of music theory. I've developed my own task analysis for learning chord piano, which means I break it down into steps. I focus on keeping the student's enthusiasm and focus on assessing and providing a positive and successful outcome from the first lesson.

About Roseann

I have been teaching piano for almost 40 years. I have a NY state music teachers license, a masters in music therapy from NYU, and a bachelors in Music Education and AFFA certification. I try to keep the student self-motivated by using music that the student likes, as well as covering the basics.

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.

Private Music Performance Teacher

I have performed many different styles of music all over the country, from some of the largest theaters and performance areas to college recital halls. Studying the art of performing is crucial as a musician, and needs just as much attention as practicing the instrument itself. I aim to provide my students with skills to tackle stage fright and adrenaline-jitters, and to deliver the musical performance they have been practicing for.

About Emily

Woodwind instrumentalist Emily performs regularly in a range of styles including classical, jazz, rock, funk, Afrobeat, Third Stream, and musical theater. Emily holds her M.M. in Multiple Woodwind Performance from The Boston Conservatory with concentrations in saxophone, clarinet, and flute perform

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

As a frontwoman and background vocalist to numerous rock/soul/indie bands, I've got some performance chops under my belt! I'm a standing testament to the fact that performance anxiety *can* be overcome- and with a vengeance! Performance techniques we'll go over include everything from microphone technique, to simple PA/monitor setup, live performance tips and tricks I've picked up over the years, and developing your own persona that feels natural, comfortable, and fun. I studied Dance for the first 18 years of my life, too, so we can throw some of that in there too. I draw from it frequently as a performer, actually. I've played big shows to small ones and run into a lot of things over the years. We can talk about it all. get ready for story time!

About Tracey

I've been singing, performing, songwriting, and studying voice for 20+ years. I'm alumnus of both Berklee College of Music, where I studied Voice/Vocal Performance, and Musician's Institute, where I earned a degree in Voice / Vocal Performance. I've been teaching since 2006, and work with a wide ra

Tracy is an expert and has taken me to places in singing that I was ‘scared’ of. I have seen improvements even after 4 lessons. Tracey is a caring and practical tutor. I highly recommend her!
Gemma
I had my first lesson with Tracey today and I can't wait to take more! I'm a person who likes knowing how stuff works, why we may do something a certain way, what I should be paying attention to etc etc, and I love that she is willing to break everything down and explain in a very relatable way. She's very patient, easy-going, and despite how uncomfortable it is for me to sing in front of others, she made me feel like she's truly there to go along the journey with me, to improve and discover my voice with no judgments. Tracey is the best!

Tracey is super nice. I was not with them in the sdudio when she was teaching my daughter . She said I could definitely stay there though. My daughter was very happy with her.

His methodical approach taught me not only what kind of notes to choose from, but how to use my ear to decide how I want to play. I would highly recommend Rick's method for any instrument at any level!"

This article aims to provide the beginner musician a nutshell overview of the different periods in music history by discussing the type of music and aesthet …
