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 she 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 act
ive 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.

Apart from being an exceptional violinist, Daren is friendly, personable and a great teacher. I had never played the violin before but he broke things down in a way that made sense to me. His tips and foundational instruction brought results by the end of just the first lesson. I'm excited to learn more!

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 University, 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 Profess
or 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.

About Amy
Are you interested in learning piano, or do you have a child who is? I can't wait to help you turn this desire into reality! My name is Amy, and I am a piano teacher who specializes in teaching children. I descend from a long line of musicians (both my mother and grandmother were piano teachers) and have played piano for 21 years, studying with a private instructor for 13 of those. I received my BFA at Goddard College (’14) and my MFA at Boston University (’16).

Over the past six years I have taught piano to students of all ages and levels in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Boston, Massachusetts, and now Columbus! As a member of the Ohio Music Teacher’s Association, I can offer your child multiple performance opportunities throughout the year, as well as small group lessons in my studio. Learning an instrument is beneficial for many reasons. Asid
e from the obvious enjoyment one gets out of playing beautiful music, working at a skill week after week helps children build confidence and grow in all areas of life. I coach my students to take pride in their accomplishments, to exude an air of assurance and poise when sitting at the piano, and to become self-directed learners.

MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
One of the wonderful (and obvious) benefits of private instruction is that each student's unique abilities and shortcomings can be brought into clear focus and addressed. I am highly skilled at encouraging students through a careful balance of praise and constructive criticism. I make sure they are aware of (and take pride in) their strengths so that when challenging moments arise, they are motivated to do the work.

I maintain high expectations for my students, constantly reminding them that it's the quality (not the quantity) of their playing that counts. It is much more important to me that a student learns to play one piece well rather than ten pieces poorly. There is no race to the finish line. I believe in taking however much time is necessary to help a child understand a concept—we might spend the majority of a lesson on it if we have to. Learning must be done at the child's own speed. Children benefit enormously from having 100% of my attention during lessons; they will never need to try and "catch up" with other students.

METHOD:
Most method books for young students focus on teaching the child to read notes on a page, and as one can only learn to read music so fast, children are therefore stuck playing songs that keep the hands rooted on or around Middle C. There are so many problems with this method, least of all the fact that it's quite boring. A bigger issue is the lack of focus on technique and playing. Children are naturally musical--they love to sing and dance. Playing piano should be no different. Children can be taught songs using no music at all; rather, they can learn simple melodies by identifying patterns on the piano. This helps train their ear AND frees the child up to focus on technique rather than scrutinizing the notes on the page. My students get to use the entire keyboard almost right away (both black keys and white keys) rather than being crowded around Middle C.

Another issue with the Middle C position is that it creates an awkward twisting inward of the wrists, which breeds tension. The first thing students should learn is how to play with relaxed wrists, not tense ones!! This is one of the building blocks of good piano technique. Keeping kids rooted around Middle C for the first six months of their piano education does not set them up for good technique.

Now, all of this is not to say that I don't teach children to read music--I do. Absolutely! I introduce intervals and guide notes as soon as possible. I think the intervallic approach is super useful, especially when dealing with children who are coached from a young age to look for patterns. Alongside reading music, though, it is important to teach songs that are only for playing.

For beginning students, I like to use the Piano Safari method. These books offer a wonderful blend of rote pieces (for playing, not reading) and reading pieces that use the intervallic approach. These pieces are fun and engaging--some parents complain about how their children won't stop practicing them! Here is a sampling book of other books and materials I may use:

Beginning Students: Tales of a Musical Journey Books 1 + 2, Piano Safari Books 1 + 2, Carl Czerny's The Little Pianist, Bastien Piano Literature Book 1, Royal Conservatory Series Preparatory Books A & B and Book 1

Intermediate Students: Piano Safari Book 3, Bastien Piano Literature Books 2-4, Royal Conservatory Series Books 2-6

Advanced Students: Bastien Piano Literature Books 5-6, Early Advanced Classics to Moderns, Royal Conservatory Series Books 7-10

Amy is one of the best piano teachers you will ever find. She loves music and is able to pass that passion on to her students. She works with each one as a unique individual, no rote formula or one size fits all approach. We drive from Dayton to Columbus every week because it's worth it to have Amy as a teacher. I would recommend her anytime to anyone seeking quality, enjoyable music instruction.

My 6 years old daughter had a wonderful experience with Amy in Boston, MA. In general she has issues focusing on tasks, but Amy was always able to keep her attention and motivate her to do her best. Amy is very personable, professional and most of all patient, a very important skill to have when dealing with young students. She assigns homework and rewards students for it, helping them to practice with consistency and take pride of their accomplishments. I highly recommend Amy if you are in Columbus area and looking for a positive and enjoyable learning experience.

I had tried to take lessons years ago, but was really disappointed in the teacher for not doing much more than having me warm up, then sing a song over and over, then trying to encourage me to go out and sing karaoke as homework between lessons. Betsy understood my goals. She gave me vocal exercises to do as homework and explained WHY I would want to do these exercises. She is able to teach a range of styles, and was very informative when I had questions.
I would have given her 5 stars except that I need to work on confidence before letting other people hear me sing. The reason I wanted a local instead of online teacher was so that I would be out of my house so my own family couldn't even hear me. However, her family was home and sitting in the next room. This made it difficult for me to sing as loud as I needed to for hitting the high notes until well into the lesson when she was able to tell me that my pitch match was good.

About Gabrielle
Meet Gabrielle:

Gabrielle has coached individuals, choirs, and camps locally and internationally to perfect their tone and sing with skill and freedom. Aside from teaching, she also is a traveling performer, and a host of creative music production workshops in elementary schools and other family friendly venues.

Musical History:

As a professional singer formerly signed to Sony Records and Cherrylane Publishing she has a few songwriting credits in movies, television, albums and video games. After starring in a reality show, releasing an album, touring with some of music's biggest names, walking the red carpet, and performing at the Billboard awards, she returned home to really find her sound after her music group disbanded.

"It has been such a journey. Now that I've found my voice, I want to help others discover theirs too.
It's so important to me. As a striving musician, successes and failures have only deepened my passion and taught me the importance of knowing myself as an artist. I love helping others believe in themselves and release what's truly inside them."

She is very diverse and able to do all kinds of genres. She is also a producer and is passionate about music arrangement, song writing and recording. She currently runs RunSong Studios.

What to Expect as a Student:

* Train to hear the note, tune tone, sing on key 

* Learn to create and control runs and ad libs

* Find the perfect harmonies automatically 

* Strengthen diaphragm and learn to breathe correctly 

* Learn to sing with emotion and let the true individual shine through

* Push the limits with the right exercises and free the voice to truly soar 

* Be empowered and encouraged as a singer and a raw artist, whether this is a hobby or an epic dream

I recommend children's session be no shorter than an hour. 30 minutes goes by very quickly and children's classes are more about building confidence as well as skill which takes a bit longer.

It was a good experience to have lesson with Ally on line. She is a good teacher with experience and patience. My son had 10 lessons with her, started from zero knowledge to a good simple song . He played piano for 5 more years, maybe this helps him to understand the notes easier. We definitely will go back to Ally for more lessons when we need her help.
