About Eric
I've taught over 40,000 private music lessons to students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. I've had tremendous success at helping students reach their musical goals and become well rounded musicians. I have an associates degree in liberal arts with a concentration on music and studied privately with several of the best teachers in Buffalo, NY. Additionally, I was in 3 successful bands, played hundreds of shows, made 2 professional recordings and have recorded other artists in my studio...I specialize in teaching beginners and children and have vast experience with both.

*** Lesson Details ***
I try and make the rapport with students comfortable and informal while at the same time constantly pushing them to improve and grow. I strongly encourage all students to work on all aspects of their playing, to become well-rounded musicia
ns and study multiple techniques, genres and music theory.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dining Room is designated for music: amps, guitars, basses, recording equipment, chairs, parents must stay for lessons under 18: comfy and spacious.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need their instrument, tuner, lesson books, notebook and pen. I will provide everything else.

*** Specialties ***
I have a well-rounded approach to teaching. I teach a variety of techniques(picking,finger picking, pick and finger technique,improvisation, ear training, chord/melody playing etc.) and a variety of styles.(mainly rock, folk, jazz and blues)

Eric is a really great teacher! He is very patient with my 13 year old daughter, a beginner, during her lessons and always seems very supportive and enthusiastic as she slowly progresses from week to week. He is an accomplished musician himself and plays along with her to show her how something should sound. Eric has a nice laid back attitude, is very on target with my daughter's musical tastes and he has a great personality! I am very happy with his teaching methods and we hope to continue her lessons with him for the next few years.

Great instructor. Has a lot of background knowledge, which may be intimdating to some. But he does a good job of identifying strengths and weaknesses upon which to work.

Eric was great. He is obviously very knowledgeable but he is also easy to talk to and seemed to quickly understand what I knew and what I didn't. A good communicator and his set up for the lessons was very comfortable and easy to find. One hour lesson flew by!

About Stephen
I have been teaching privately since 2010, when I accepted a position as a graduate assistant at Bowling Green State University. My responsibilities included teaching private lessons to undergraduate percussion majors and coaching percussion ensembles. I began teaching students from middle school through high school age around the same time, and my students have since included adults. I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels of experience, as they all bring something unique to their lessons and challenge me to adapt to their varied styles of learning.

My daughter was shy at the beginning, but Stephen was able to warm her up and get her talk. Even she didn't learn a lot, she is excited about the new class coming next week.
Stephen is good at teaching her in different conversations.
He is a good teacher for kids. Highly recommend!

About Hannah
Hello and welcome! I’ve been playing the piano for over 14 years now and have been teaching for the last four years! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music and play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to play songs in any genre and style that you so choose. Genres I specialize in are classical piano and pop. Learning technical skills and music theory are also very important to build skill. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can’t wait to meet you!

I graduated from the Willoughby School of Fine Arts studying under one of the most experienced and educated private piano instructors. I have also studied music theory and piano in Europe. I've performed in concerts, churches, schools, various organizations and have been employed as a pianist. I have a passion for teaching and
would love to pass on talent for what I love. My goal is to inspire and motivate students to play the piano better everyday!

About McKenna
I have been teaching violin since high school, through both group classes and private lessons. While living in Chicago, I taught through the New Music School as an adjunct faculty member. In Montreal, while studying for my Bachelor's degree at McGill University, I taught private lessons to community members and gave presentations to local school groups. Here in Cleveland, I teach as a substitute at a couple of community music schools and assist with group classes at the Cleveland Institute of Music's Sato Center for Suzuki Studies. I am registered with the Suzuki Association of the Americas through Unit 1 (Pre-Twinkle and Book 1), and will be registered with Unit 2 (Books 2-4) by Winter 2018.

I provide a fun environment to study music, often using games and activities to learn musical concepts. I believe every student has the ability to
excel when given the proper environment and tools to succeed. I have worked with students of all ages, and have experience working with students with speech disorders, hearing loss, ADD, and ADHD.

About Michelley
I am currently studying at The University Of Akron for violin performance where the music programs are rigorous but encouraging! I’ve been playing violin for almost 10 years now and absolutely enjoy teaching other students and passing on what was given to me.

Violin students can expect to improve a lot and get not only experience with classical music but many genres including some of their choice.

Students will be able to get ear training experience, theory training, etc. Recognizing key signatures not only by looking but hearing it.

Students will be enouraged to do their absolute best and I will help them to not put limits on their ability!

Being a student helps me to understand their frustration that will get because Violin can be hard. I will give them practise strategies that will push help them to improve faster!

I t
each ALL ages! :)
