Experienced teacher of 5 years able to teach all levels of experience. I am a graduate of The New School of Jazz and Contemporary music. While at the New School I studied with some of the masters including Reggie Workman, Billy Harper, Jane Ira Bloom, Matt Wilson, Dave Glasser, Peter Bernstein, Vic Juris and many others. Additionally, I was a tutor for three years in every subject so I know their curriculum back to front. I am available to teach Ear training, Sight Reading, Improvisation, Music Theory, Rhythm, Arranging, Composition, Music Appreciation, Guitar doubling on bass and much more. I am able to teach all music styles. I also play French Horn and bass at a high level. I love teaching and helping students on their own musical paths. I am looking forward to meeting you and finding YOUR voice together!

Composition is a passion of mine. I love doing it and I have studied with great composers like Kirk Nurock and Jane Ira Bloom. We can work from the basics of how to start ...

My passion is singing and I have recently received my Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. My voice teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. I have acquired many different tools for teaching through my studies and teaching experience. Everyone has a unique voice and learning style and I tailor my teaching to each individual.

Students of all ages and levels are welcome. Styles that I teach include art song, opera, and musical theater, with a focus on building a solid and healthy vocal technique.

My experience in dance, Alexander Technique, and acting informs my teaching approach. I include body awareness, character interpretation, and making the music come alive as an integral part of the lessons. I love to teach and enjoy helping others discover their voices and achieve their personal singing goals. It would be a pleasure to help you discover your voice!

Isabel was a fantastic match for both of our kids
They are at totally different skill levels and their personalities are completely different too. She meshed with both of them and they adored working with her - their voices/performances improved tremendously as well as it being great for their confidence. I highly recommend working with her and she is welcome to give you my contact info for a phone reference as well
Joseph
Isbael has been very helpful in teaching me the basics. She is extremely positive and patient. I couldn't ask for a better vocal instructor.
Christine
I'm an advanced singer who has worked with Isabel on a few art songs, and she taught me so much! She has a natural knack for helping with song interpretation, and her focus on staying vocally healthy really helped me stay on track. Totally recommend!

Excellent teacher. Lulu was patient, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. I took both Mandarin and piano lessons, and she helped me rekindle my passion for both.

Very patient teacher rep since I am new to the piano
Excellent pianist!
You will be lucky to have her as your teacher
Alexis
I had my first lesson today in Mandarin as a novice. Lulu is obviously an excellent tutor. She is organized, knowledgeable about the physical processes of phonetics, and extremely encouraging. I can not wait to go deeper into the Chinese language with her as my tutor. I strongly recommend taking lessons from her.

"Jedi Training. That's what I like to call my guitar lessons. Because Trevor teaches you how to use the force. I like how Trevor gets me out of my left brain with exercises like closing my eyes while I pick out chords & notes. He know how to push me past my comfort zone while still keeping it fun.

The topics of lessons aren't one size fits all (like some teachers that teach the same thing every week to all their students) But he tailors each lessons to my interests & deftly weaves all aspects of music together from theory, to chord structure, to picking, to levitating x-wings using your mind."

"Our son is taking violin lessons from Tigran. We absolutely love him. Tigran comes to our home every week and we have complete trust in him. He is extremely kind and patient and has an amazing teaching style. Our son has only had about 7 months of lessons and each month he has tremendous growth. He is 18 years old and has never had a violin lesson until now. He practices without us having to tell him and he looks forward each week to his lessons with Tigran----That speaks volumes about Tigran as a teacher. We highly recommend him as a teacher and a friend."

6 Piano Songs to Help You Learn Major and Minor Scales

Need to work on your major or minor scales? Piano songs abound by both classical and contemporary pianists that can help you improve your skills. Here, St. Augustine, FL Heather L. shares her recommendations.    Even as a piano teacher, I can be sympathetic to students who find themselves practicing major and minor scales over and over without any variation. Scales are often cited as the least favorite part of taking piano lessons. Sometimes, well, a lot of the time, the best way t …
