About Brenda

Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and hold two music degrees and two teaching certifications in music (NJ) and ESL (international). I obtained my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University where I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and obtained my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different

teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Performance anxiety
Life coaching!

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning" ~Plato

About Vivian

Hello, I'm a medicine student at Venezuela which is why I know about anatomy, organic chemistry and biology very well, but I also know about music and painting, the reason I don't have a background check is because I really don't have the money to pay for it, but I can promise you I'm very professional and I'll do my best to teach your kids, I do this so I can pay for my medicine career, so I'll be glad if you want to study any of the subjects that I teach with me.

We are complete novices for ballroom dancing-- Anna was wonderfully helpful in connecting prior to the lesson and preparing to help us get the most out of the hour that we booked. She is energetic, vivacious and has a highly effective teaching style. she is able to break the dance down with cues and rhythms that are easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely go back to her for another lesson.

I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.

My experience taking Arabic lessons with Albaraa has exceeded my expectations. He is patient, thorough and really does a great job teaching the pronunciations. I am very thankful that I chose him to be my Arabic tutor.

About Anne

You've probably already seen that I have a Master's degree in teaching English and more than 6 years experience teaching students from all around the world, but that doesn't explain why I chose this career. The reason is that I love to teach English. I like to make my students comfortable and to have a good time in class.

I know very well that it's hard to speak in a language that you are learning because you don't want to make mistakes. But those mistakes are important because that is the way we learn - by making mistakes and learning how to say it better.

You don't need to think of things to talk about. I will ask you questions that you understand so that you can practice speaking English and I will give you all the help you need to answer my questions. I will speak so that you understand me - slowly and clearly. It will be fun -

I promise.
