About Gabriella
A graduate from Illinois Wesleyan University, Gabriella has earned her degree in Violin Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University and recently earned her Masters in String Pedagogy at the Ohio State University under Robert Gillespie.
A few notable performances she has participated in are three solo recitals, concerts with the Danville, Lakeview, Wheaton and Illinois Wesleyan Civic Orchestras, and many performances with her quartet, including performances at the Consular Corps. Ball in Chicago. She has developed an advanced repertoire for her instrument and greatly enjoys imparting what s
he has learned with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student is expected to attend each lesson scheduled with all materials prepared over the week. Students are expected to practice 3 to 5 days each week. The student should be engaged and active in each lesson, music is so exciting! It is highly encouraged to participate in local youth orchestras and chamber music programs as well as attend concerts in the area. These events are tremendous learning opportunities!
Although I am not a "strict" teacher, I do adjust my expectations to each student and do expect each student to make progress from lesson to lesson. Within the first few months together, I can assure better posture, a more comfortable playing experience and strong technical foundations. I promise to customize a suitable lesson plan to each student in my studio to ensure they receive the best learning experience possible.

*** Studio Equipment ***
We will meet at my home and a stand, music, and writing utensils will be provided.
Students should have their own instrument and accessories, i.e. shoulder rest, at home stand, rosin, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I like to incorporate a variety of musical styles such as Eastern European and Spanish traditional dances to broaden horizons.

I have learned so much in my short time taking lessons with Gabriella. She is incredibly attentive and great at explaining both theory and technique in a way that is easy to understand and remember. She is really comfortable and easy to work with!

Exceptionally focused, extremely detailed, and a stickler for perfection, are some of the attributes that come to mind when I think of Gabriella.

I was hesitant to move forward with Gabriella when I first discovered her on takelessons.com. Being an adult learner, I was under the impression that the age of the instructor determined their skill-set and ability to teach. Not so! To say I have improved with Gabriella is an understatement. What I learned from her in the 10 months we've worked together has progressed me to a level I could never have achieved with my former instructor.

Gabriella is not intimidated by my age and doesn't let any intonation errors, posture slouching, poor bow-hold, etc., go unsaid. She is very good at constructively pointing out errors without sounding harsh, or critical.

She is wise beyond her years. She is very mature and is truly passionate about the violin.

I am so fortunate to have found her and I look forward to many more successful lessons!

Excellent Instructor

Ella is very knowledgeable, patient, and thorough violin teacher. She is working with my 10 year old who is under the autism spectrum. Ella is very patient and has been doing an excellent job teaching my son how to play at a pace he can handle. My son really likes Ella and her tutoring him has helped him keep up with his school orchestra.

About Lauren
Hello! My name is Lauren S., and I am excited to bring out the musician in you!

Whether you're searching for yourself or your child, I would love to invite you to my beautiful creative space and help you meet your musical goals.

I focus on developing true artistry with my students and giving them the fundamental tools to be able to play and write various styles of music including classical, musical theater, folk, contemporary, Christian, and more.

We play from the very first lesson and learn other concepts such as music theory, literacy, and technique in subsequent lessons.

My st

My 16 year old daughter is not only enjoying her lessons with Lauren and motivated to practice regularly, she is advancing at a strong pace due to the intuitive and creative teaching skills that a Lauren creates for my daughter! I get the sense that lessons are prepared with thoughtful consideration and attention to my daughter's needs and ability with the future goals always attended to!

Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State Univers
ity, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Professor Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

If you are looking for a voice teacher that is skilled, versatile, and knowledgable, as well as motivating and encouraging, you've found the right teacher! I had the privilege of working with Kristin at Capital University as her vocal coach and instructor for Contemporary Voice. I found Kristin to be dedicated, talented, and a delight to teach and worth with. Kristin is one of the rare musicians you will find that is not only well-versed in technique and repertoire for Classical studies, but also Contemporary genres as well including musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. You will find her easy to connect with and you will love coming to your lessons!

Kristin was a student of mine in an all-state select choral ensemble for four years, and watching her musical growth has been a great joy for me over the years. She is a diligent musician, always seeking improvement for the best possible sound, while also finding “joy in the journey” of the musical process – music making should be fun, and Kristin knows how to balance fun with hard work! She makes people around her feel welcome, comfortable, and included. Kristin is organized, focused, and driven as a person, and expressive, dynamic, and well-rounded as a performer – all strong qualities that help her to be an excellent studio teacher.

My experience with Kristin is with the Pickerington Central High School Theatre program. As a patron of Central Theatre for over 16 year, Kristin was a member of the cast of my all-time favorite Central production "Little Women" as Aunt March and then as Maria in "The Sound of Music" her Senior year. She was fantastic in both!

Kristin and I have reconnected recently, in her "other job" and I am impressed with her kindness and patience working with people who often are not nice and how organized and professional she is at all times.

I would highly recommend Kristin as a vocal teacher.
