I am a professional cellist with years of performing and teaching.
I attended the Jacobs School of Music for my undergraduate and masters' degrees and was a graduate teaching assistant. I also received my Stott Pilates Teaching Certification while at IU and incorporate postural alignment into my teaching. I have Suzuki certification and work on a strong technical foundation, which both facilitates performing and frees us up to explore non-traditional techniques and other genres.

Most importantly, I strive to nurture the love and passion for music and cello and I am here to help you achieve your musical goals.

About Maria

I teach cellists of all ages and abilities and tailor the lesson to the individual. Lessons include standard repertoire, and if requested, non-traditional styles as well. I have experience with solo repertoire, orchestra, chamber music, and folk music, and can help you develop your ear and even sin

Hello! I have several years of experience teaching piano to high-school and college students, both at an intermediate and advanced level. I began learning piano at age 6, and have played competitively, performed in various classical recitals, performed in a jazz ensemble, and accompanied both choirs and orchestras.

I have plenty of practice material and songs ranging from beginner to advanced. I have the mindset that the student should enjoy what they are playing, so we'll look for music that you wish to play, and music that is progressively challenging. You won't be expected to buy any music materials for our lessons.

I'm looking for any student who wants to build a healthy and enjoyable relationship with piano that they will keep throughout their lives.

About Dustin

I'm 26 years old, work a full-time computer job, and live in Polaris, Ohio in a cozy apartment near the Polaris mall. I have experience tutoring since High School, with emphasis on piano, economics, and mathematics. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, hiking, visiting parks, and watching TV shows

Jenny is an Ohio based flutist with over 20 years’ experience teaching flute and piccolo. She has 10 years’ experience at the collegiate level. She enjoys teaching at all levels, from beginner through advanced, and has taught a wide range of ages from 8 to 70. From introducing students to the flute and teaching them their first songs as a beginner, to preparing them for auditions, recitals, honor bands, and much more as an advanced player, I love helping students enjoy the process of learning an instrument and being able to see them grow and achieve their goals. I love that each student brings unique strengths to each lesson and I tailor the lesson to the student’s needs and learning styles.

About Jenny

I have over 20 years’ experience teaching flute and piccolo and currently teach at two local colleges. I enjoy teaching at all levels, from beginner through advanced. At the Beginner level, I get to introduce students to the instrument. This is one of my favorite parts because every new piece

I was nervous to have a lesson with private teacher and was petrified the first day when she asked me to play for her, but I was surprised by how supportive and reinforcing she was. She teaches in a very comfortable, positive, and engaging way. Not only does she adapt her teaching to "you," but she puts a lot of effort in her students. She teaches at a university, but puts just as much passion and care into her private students. I personally credit her to preparing me for college and building me into the musician I am today. I highly recommend her to anybody- at all levels! :)
Annette
Jenny is a kind and strong teacher. I truly enjoyed my lessons with her as I studied flute. She is an asset to the community for many reasons, but her love for education is superb.
Luane
It is with great pleasure for me to recommend Jenny as a flute instructor. I am one of her advanced and more mature students (I didn't want to say old lol! ). I graduated with a BM and have taught elementary music for 37 years. Jenny is creative, intuitive and compassionate. She has a thirst for knowledge and a great passion for teaching! She is always searching for new and innovative ways of teaching musical concepts. I am amazed how she is able to be so expressive in the way that she explains how to play expressively! In the short time that I have been taking lessons from Jenny I have experienced great improvement on all levels of my flute playing. Her “bag of tricks” appear to be endless! In my humble opinion I feel Jenny has all the qualities of a master teacher! I always look forward for my lessons with her!

Music is such an important aspect that can be enjoyed by all ages. My approach to lessons is individual-based and flexible to your goals and needs. I believe that the enthusiasm, love, and enjoyment of playing music should never be lost, and it is my goal to maintain and cultivate your continued interest in music.

Learning piano should be a balanced skill. We will improve or learn piano techniques to help you play the pieces you've dreamed of, as well as hone ear sensitivity to sound and a creative imagination for bringing the music to life. As a concert pianist, there are definitely pianistic techniques and "hacks" I can share that will help in grasping both difficult musical and physical techniques.

With a Doctorate Degree in Piano Performance, my training included pedagogy classes and experience teaching all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced, college professional) at all ages (from 4 to adult). Although I am a classical pianist, I am happy to work on popular songs, some ...

Alison is great at explaining complex terminologies as well as breaking down difficult piano techniques. Her passion and understanding of different classical music styles exude even when she is just demonstrating a repertoire during our lessons. In addition, her patient and kind personality make our lessons very enjoyable and rewarding. Every week I look forward to our lessons and I am always excited about them.

Because Alison is also an inspiring role model herself, she constantly challenges me to become a better pianist. Throughout my years as her student, not only has my piano skills immensely progressed on a technical level; but I have also learned how to better interpret the repertoires of different styles, and conveying those emotions through my playing.
Alex
Alison is an extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and experienced instructor. Her love for music comes across through her words and demonstrations, and she knows how to pinpoint and help me with both technical and musical issues. She also helps me understand the piece better without getting too theoretical or technical, which allows me to make more sense of what I am doing and still maintain interest. Her teaching is organized and detailed, which I appreciated. I highly recommend Alison for piano lessons!

"Shelley is a phenomenal vocal coach and really expanded my vocal abilities. Her lessons were customized to help me grow as a vocal student. My vocal strength, pitch, and overall sound were greatly improved during my lessons with Shelley. She is extremely professional and goes out of her way to make sure her students are accomplishing their goals. Her suggested exercises helped build-up my voice. Additionally, her teaching methods and personality not only made me a better vocalist, but boosted my confidence in singing as well. If you are looking for a vocal coach, Shelley is the one to go to. Her teaching methods, professionalism, and kindness make her the best coach. I really enjoyed my time working with Shelley!"

"Aaron is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and easy to work with.

I've had a block with music theory & soloing for years. In our very first lesson, Aaron helped me gain new perspective on the fretboard, and in the week that followed I had a major soloing breakthrough!

He really takes the time to go slow and make sure I'm understanding each concept, and theory is finally starting to make sense to me. And even though we're "going slow," when I look over our lesson notes, I'm always surprised at how much we've accomplished. This guy is a treasure trove of knowledge and encouragement.

I appreciate Aaron's skill in both playing and teaching, and I look forward to many more lessons this year."

5 Exercises for Faster Fingers When Teaching Yourself Piano

So you've started piano lessons and you're in it for the long haul... but playing the same exercises over and over again is starting to get boring. We understand. No one goes to the gym and does the same routine day in and day out. Why should you have to trudge your way through the same repetitive piano exercises over and over? Teaching yourself piano requires a bit of creativity in this respect. So crack your knuckles, climb down off the top of the piano before you scratch the surface, and g …
