About Ran
Hi there! I am Ran. I have been teaching individual violin lessons to children and adults of all musical levels since 2001. I am currently available to teach lessons at your home also at my studio. I have helped students to prepare and to pass the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music graded music exams and assessments level 1-8 including music theory, aural test, and the instrumental auditions from all three Baroque, Classical and 20th Century contemporary periods. I have also helped middle school and high school students to prepare and to enter the Regional Advanced Orchestral Programs in New Jersey. I hold both of my Bachelor of Music and Master of Music in Violin Performance from Manhattan School of Music in New York City. A trained Suzuki violin teacher, and a current member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, I have
been serving as a part time Suzuki violin teacher in private and community music schools in New Jersey, as well as performing actively as an orchestral and chamber musician in NYC and NJ.

My goal of teaching is to improve the student's intellect, mental-physical collaboration, to develop the skills including aural ability, emotional connection to music, enjoy playing, and to develop strong self-discipline that the students can apply to other activities. I am passionate to keep this precious human art form alive, especially in these future generations!

I grew up in professional conservatories, and started playing the violin at age 4 instructed by my mother who is a full time professional violinist with the Shanghai Symphony. I was so lucky to have her as my first violin teacher that through her teaching, I understand how important it is to study with a patient, encouraging and dedicated teacher. Teaching is such a rewarding experience to me that I am able to use my skills and knowledge to help students developing their interest and potential talent as well as achieving their multiple learning purposes.

Ran was such a wonderful instructor and overall person. My son loved her and so did I. My 10 year old learned so much Ran, because she has so much knowledge and passion for the violin. I just recently moved out of the area, so I am not within driving distance anymore to Ran. However, I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn the violin or sharpen an already existing skillset. I believe Ran has transferred her passion for the violin to my son and to myself as well. I wish I could give her 10 stars! She is awesome!!!!

I teach violin at the New School for Leadership and the Arts, mostly to novice players, and I have experience teaching violin to children of all ages.

My primary instrument is guitar, which I've played for about 25 years in many different bands, styles, and genres. I studied music and classical guitar at University of Central Florida, and during that time I also helped teach violin to a class of third graders. I'm not a pro violinist, but I have plenty of experience working with novice players, helping them develop proper technique, sight reading, ear training, and other skills needed to advance to the next level.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

I was classically trained for 15 years and as both my parents play Irish fiddle music that became a love of mine as well. I am happy to meet you wherever your level, whether you are a complete beginner to advanced player. Let make music!

Almost 20 years later I am now a New England Conservatory graduate with 5 years of teaching experience, available for lessons at your home or at my studio near the Halsey L. Let's learn together!

Robin gave piano lessons to our 8-year-old son in our home for the better part of a year. Our son was thrilled with Robin and every week looked forward to their lessons together. It was with Robin’s expert guidance and gentle encouragement that our son’s passion for piano really took off. With Robin by his side he really blossomed and his playing improved drastically. He also gained confidence in his own playing enough that he decided to sign up for the SuperJam – where he performed for an audience. Robin was right there cheering him on and it was the boost he needed. I would highly recommend Robin as a music teacher – our son’s passion has not wavered since meeting Robin!

I am currently studying to be an orchestra teacher and I have many years of experience teaching privately. Violin isn't my main instrument, however I've been playing for many years. Students will learn proper technique, music reading, music theory, and classical repertoire, as well as help with school orchestra music, if needed.

About Jordan
Hi, my name is Jordan. I am a Freshman Music and Theatre Education student at Seton Hall University. I have experience with many genres of music including classical, jazz, pop/rock, and Broadway. In addition to being a multi instrumentalist, I am also a songwriter, and have released a full length country album with Bongo Boy Records. My specialty and biggest passion is country and rock music, however I'm also classically trained in voice and in various instruments. Although I'm young, I have lots of experience so if you are looking for quality lessons in voice, stand up bass, guitar, bass guitar, banjo, ukulele, piano, or other beginning instruments, id be happy to oblige :)

PS. I didn't renew my background check but I'm a 19 year old college student, not a criminal.
