Robert M.

Exeter, NH

About Robert

Robert's exemplary and diverse career all began when he was a very small boy. His magical, musical journey began with his Grandfather, Donald Mcullick, a country singer/guitarist, who spent the 1950's touring and performing with blockbuster artists such as Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison. Grandpa would take his young protégé out to the swing under the apple tree in the backyard and show him songs on an old acoustic guitar. He would later give that guitar to Robert. That guitar was the key to the music box of Robert's life. A life long dedicated to the art and craft of music.

Robert
's high school years were very non-traditional. While most students spent time at football games and pep rallies, Robert spent his time performing in pit orchestras and composing for local theater companies. His extensive theater credits include work with the Hampton Playhouse, the Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts, the Seacoast Reparatory Company and the Portland Stage Company. Robert was comfortable on both sides of the stage. He was an accomplished performer, composer and overall technical adviser even in his teens.

After graduating High School, Robert took on the daunting task of recording his first solo album "Obstacles Overhead". The album featured members of Capitol Records recording artists Thanks to Gravity and Pondering Judd. All of his hard work paid off and the album received airplay on many local radio stations.

The allure and glamor of the Rock and Roll life soon called, and Robert found himself fronting a heavy Metal power trio called Nine Shades of White. The group toured extensively throughout the east coast, and recorded two well received albums.

After taking time to record projects with Boston based singer Rick Skeehan and the world renowned Irish folk group the Makem Brothers, Robert joined a group called Two Much Trouble, and performed on their album "Frankenstein". The group earned a wild reputation with its heavily modified tour bus that spit flames and transformed into a mobile stage.

In the summer of 1997 Robert was enlisted as the lead guitarist for the premier seacoast rock group 202 The Band. For the next 5 years he rocked crowds every weekend all over the New England area. In 2002 the group released the album "En Route". Many of the songs featured on the album were either written or co-written by Robert.

Always anxious to take drastic "left turns" along his musical path, Robert accepted an invitation by the renown New York City based jazz guitarist Larry Simon to perform in two of his large scale new age, rock, jazz ensembles, Collective Consciousness and Infinite Soul. Each group sported, at times, over twenty members. This setting not only gave Robert the chance to tread on new musical ground, but it also gave him the chance to explore new instruments like mandolin and electric violin. Robert now plays an electric violin custom made for him by Mark Wood of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Rock and Roll of course was never far from his heart, so of course he did just that. Robert next found himself playing second guitar for his close friend and virtuoso guitarist Dan Miller in the Dan Miller Band. This heavy metal juggernaut created enough of a rumble to make it into the final round of the Boston based Beantown Meltdown battle of the bands in 2004.

In 2005 Robert finally found the time to release his second solo album, "Dust Covered Man". Produced by Grammy nominated producer Mac Ritchey, it was a somewhat dark and introspective, acoustic based, singer songwriter album that featured flutist Cynthia Chatis and blues harmonica guru "Hatrack" Gallagher. Robert's version of Pink Floyd's "Blue Sky" had the distinction of being voted the 2nd best cover of a Pink Floyd song on iTunes, during 2005. Richie Havens, the internationally known folk singer, has also given his stamp of approval on Robert's version of "Darkness Darkness".

In the spring of 2007 Robert was given the immense honor of performing as a member of the world famous Irish soul band "The Commitments" on their 2007 U.S. tour, filling in for the bands ailing original guitarist Kenneth McCluskey.

2007 also saw the release of a series of Hypnotherapy CD's by therapist Sharon O'Connor that featured music written and recorded by Robert. He has also written music for independent films and television throughout the years.

In 2007 Robert also found time to reunite with some of his old 202 band mates in a short lived group called Stone Circle. While the band had to be put on hold for the time being, Robert looks forward to working with his old friends again someday.

In early 2008 Robert began studies with British classical guitar master Edward Flower, expanding his already diverse background even more. Later that year he was recruited to do transcriptions for Guy Davis, a popular performer in the modern blues world.

Early 2009 saw the launch of Robert’s newest endeavor, his own professional recording studio, dubbed “The Dragon’s Den”, nestled in the woods in tranquil Stratham NH. A place where Robert himself and others can find peace and craft their creative vision.

And the journey continues……..

*** Lesson Details ***
Robert's teaching approach changes and conforms to the needs and goals of each individual student. He does his best to encourage good technique and the understanding of basic music theory as it applies to the style of music the students wishes to learn. Robert strives to find the perfect delicate balance between focused study and just having fun with music.

After a few months of lessons all students will learn the importance of proper technique and the core essentials of reading music. Younger students will be able to play well known melodies familiar to them, and older students will be playing pieces from popular songs. This of course is a general overview, as each students progresses at his or her own pace.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Can provide an instrument for the first lesson only (teacher must be advised beforehand) If students wish to continue they must have their own instrument. Students playing electric guitars or bass do not need to bring amplifiers to lessons, there is one provided. Students do not generally need to purchase books or other instructional materials, they will be provided.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Pop, Blues, Country, Folk, Heavy Metal

Angelika K.

Gorham, ME

About Angelika

Musical Background
My goal as a piano teacher is to help every student understand and learn to appreciate the language of Music. Every student is unique and therefore receives a personalized piano education. No two student learn exactly the same way at precisely the same speed! Therefore treating students as individuals is very important to me. With time students will discover what music means to them personally. The impact and influence of music on people is precious in many different ways. Piano lessons are a lifetime investment and its rewards and benefits will help enrich your life.

I
am a classically trained pianist from Germany, where I acquired a Piano Teaching Certification. Thanks to my wonderful piano teacher who was both a concert pianists and college-level music professor I now can share my love for music with others. I have taken college-level piano classes in music theory and group instruction. Also, to further my education, I am studying various piano pedagogy material in order to be of even better service to my students.

My teaching background consists of four years of experience in teaching not only piano, but also tutoring Math, Latin and German, which greatly contributed to the expansion and deepening of my teaching skills. Most importantly, after moving to the US several years ago, I founded the Musical Moonlight Piano Studio, which is now celebrating its two-year anniversary. Watching a student succeed is the highest reward a teacher can receive and I am looking forward to see you become a member of the studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although no lesson is exactly the same and every student is approached differently, the basic structure usually resembles the following:

1. Warm-up fingers by technical exercises
2. Review homework, work through it, correct mistakes, improve performance, etc.
3. Introduce new pieces, new material (e.g. theory)

*** Studio Equipment ***
The Studio Equipment includes (but is not limited to):
- a piano
- metronome
- a variety of music

Before you start piano lessons, you will need to have a functioning piano and an honest desire to learn to play :)

*** Travel Equipment ***
- piano literature
- metronome
- any necessary additional material

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching piano. Although most of my experience is from teaching children and teenagers, adults are most welcome as well. I am fully convinced that it is never too late to start learning how to play an instrument!

If you want the best, then schedule a lesson with Angelika. I am an adult who wanted to learn more about piano but also in understanding music in general. So far, I have learned many techniques that make quite a difference in the way a piece sounds and in how much enjoyment I (and anyone who may be listening!) get from playing it. Angelika explains things very well and has the patience sometimes needed when learning something new…or in becoming better at it. Go ahead, do it for yourself (or those you love). You will not be disappointed!

I play by ear but also read music. If you are looking for an old school, rigid, teacher who only has students only follow books, then you should look elsewhere.

Simply put Paul just knows how to reach his students and help them reach their potential in finding their voice. He made lessons fun and challenging without putting to much pressure on you. Every lesson I took I felt very comfortable and motivated to learn with his approach. If you want to learn to sing Paul is your guy!!!!

Benjamin G.

Sanford, ME

About Benjamin

I studied jazz performance & classical music at USM and studied jazz piano with Charlie Banacos.
I have been teaching since I was 15 years old through the state's Gifted program and qualified for both gifted in fine arts as well as the general IQ requirement.
I currently have students ranging from the age of 4 to 78 years old, most of which are in the range of 6-17 years old. I have undergone background checks with Tune Town music in Wells, ME. since I started working there 6 years ago.

I have had great success with many students resulting in some deciding on music as a career and going
off to college specifically for piano.

I have had experience teaching people with special needs ranging from autism to ADD, and also sometimes with what I consider great success. (Achieved fundamental music literacy and one such student progressed into the 3rd level John Thompson book after 2 years.)

Currently I teach at Tune Town in Wells, ME. as well as privately in Sanford, ME. And perform in the greater Portland area.

Stephanie K.

Portsmouth, NH

About Stephanie

Hi, I'm Stephanie and I am just starting out as a piano teacher for beginners. I'm currently available to teach lessons at your home.

I took private piano lessons from age 6 to 18 and received additional lessons in Jazz/Blues for another year. I enjoy teaching my friends and seeing them improve and I would love to teach more! Throughout my university education, I volunteered in teaching elementary school-aged children weekly and have become very comfortable working with children.

My lesson plans will be personalized to each student and will focus on music theory. I believe a good foundat
ion and understanding of music is the most important part of learning a new instrument. The better you understand the instrument, the more you will enjoy playing it!

I will also make recordings for my students when they have mastered a song. I believe having something to show for your hard work encourages further learning and makes the process more exciting. You also get to show off your new skills to your parents or friends!
