About Jeff
Hello, My name is Jeff Wheeler.

I have been playing drum set for 18 years, and teaching drum lessons privately for 5 years. I studied Music Performance at Berklee College of Music as well as Cal State, East Bay. I currently play and perform professionally throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. I work with multiple local acts in the genres of: pop, rock, funk, reggae, and hip-hop. I also perform in the high energy, award winning percussion ensemble known as Street Drum Corps.

My inspiration comes from all styles of music, people, performances, and the grooves of the Motown Record catalog. I am an extremely hard working, self motivated artist who is passionate about my craft. I am funny, friendly, outgoing and passionate about performing/touring and teaching drum set.

Example of our First Lesson:

- reading and rudiments

About Robert
I teach up-right bass (double bass or acoustic bass), and music theory.
Many of my students take the AP Music Theory test after approximately a year.
I'm a graduate of Juilliard (BM and MM) and earned a doctorate from the
Eastman School of Music. Many of my students have been accepted to these
schools. I accept all types of students and am particularly successful with helping
my students use the bass as a means of getting into a great college or university.
I also work a great deal with preparing students for all-state auditions. My teaching
style revolves around securing technique, so that the music is able to emerge. I'm
aware of every aspect of playing the bass, including instrument set up and repair.

About Amber
I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction.
I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

About Melanie
As a professional flutist, I've performed with orchestras, and do a lot of chamber music, including new music. I've performed with piano, guitar, harp for both Celtic and classical, cello, woodwind quintet, string quartet, choirs, jazz piano trio, and free improvisation with cello and bass. I graduated from SUNY Fredonia for music performance and music education, and got my Master's degree in flute performance from the Hartt School of music.

My philosophy of teaching: I teach music because it is unique and necessary. Students learn best in a relaxed, nurturing environment. I believe in order to successfully teach, I need to be encouraging, and truly care about the students. My goal is to always have the students improve. To do this, I think students need a well-balanced diet of tone (Moyse De la Senorite can be used), technique (
scales for younger students, Maquarre Daily Exercises or Taffanel and Gaubert Daily Excercises for more advanced students), etudes (Melodious and Progressive Studies), and pieces (I consult the NYSSMA manual for appropriate pieces for the students level). Having taken Alexander Technique, I strongly emphasize posture so that students can use their bodies in the most efficient way. Individualized instruction allows for teachers to cater to the needs of the student, challenging the students without frustrating them. Everyone is unique and learns at different rates, so no two lessons will ever be the same. I teach students how to practice, so that they can progress outside of the 30 min. or hour long lesson. As for performance standards, I have used rubrics for tone, technique, articulation, phrasing, and breathing. Once strengths and weaknesses are assed, I create a plan to help the student improve, which is what students and teachers want to hear.

About Katianna
I am a class of 2018 graduate from New York University Steinhardt with a BM in clarinet performance. I have been teaching clarinet since 2014, and playing since 2005. As a young musician with fours years of experience playing in Manhattan, I have had clarinet and bass clarinet students of varying ages and skill levels, and highly enjoyed aiding them in their musical careers. I have performed at venues such as National Sawdust, Carnegie hall, and Symphony Space. The opportunity to share musical knowledge with eager students is exciting and important to me! I am flexible with pricing and scheduling and can't wait to work with musicians of all levels.

My focused work in ensembles of all sizes and genres has made clear the adjustments necessary when playing with others. Additionally, I have experience with solo jazz, contemporary, and clas
sical clarinet works. Whether you are looking to prepare for an upcoming audition, or just to play music in a relaxed environment, I would love to have you in my studio!
