Emily was patient with me as a beginner. Her instructions were very detailed, easily understood and very helpful. Her pace was just right - not too slow, not too fast. She took the time to observe my technique and make corrections gently as needed. I would highly recommend Emily for online violin instruction to students of all ages.

I’ve been learning with Emily for 4 years now and have seen major improvements with my playing. She is such a dedicated, hardworking teacher. I have gotten so many amazing opportunities working with her, such as joining youth orchestras, playing in recitals, concerts, etc. No matter your level, she always motivates you to do better. I wish I could learn with her forever :((

So far so good. Emily was extremely patient and my daughter said she liked it a lot.

I teach Kids/Adults how to play and compose their own music. We work on music theory, chords, scales, and learn your favorite songs. I also encourage students how to play to a click so they can learn how to keep a consistent tempo. I have been teaching for many years and I have watched my students grown to be very successful when it comes to development.

I hold a Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction. The focus of my dissertation was the impact of education on Latino students from a representative bureaucracy perspective, centered on determining to what extent Latino representation in governance influence Latino students’ graduation rates in public high school in two counties in New York. Accordingly, my research interests include teachers-as-researchers, examining ethnic identity, biculturalism, development of children of color, social and cultural theory, Latino and Afro-Latino studies, race and ethnicity (with a focus on Afro-descendants in and from Latin America), urban sociology, education policy, educational leadership, Culturally-Responsive Teaching, and transition to college initiatives.

About Dr. D.

Greetings! I am a dynamic educator with comprehensive knowledge and experience in the education and business fields. I have extensive experience mentoring and helping students develop research, writing, critical and creative thinking skills, as well as to establish goals and determine plans for

Since our 11 year old daughter, Ella has had lessons with Dr. D., she no longer gets anxious or stressed about Common Core Math. Ella says Dr. D. is kind and sweet, and she doesn't ever feel bad about not knowing the answers to questions. Dr. D. personalizes her lessons to our school district's Common Core curriculum and sends us emails on how Ella is doing after every lesson. Ella looks forward to her lessons with Dr. D. and she has really gained confidence in approaching math. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. D. and we give her our highest recommendation:)

5 Little-Known Factors That Affect Your Piano Posture

Proper piano posture: the words alone are enough to make any pianist wince, straighten up, and make every effort to maintain it, at least for a few minutes. You may not realize that when you’re playing the piano, your posture is a key factor in your technique and whether or not you feel at ease practicing the instrument. Because practicing is a repetitive activity, it’s important to do it well. Otherwise, you risk reinforcing bad habits through repetition. If you struggle with ma …
