About Jon
I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a student and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cater my lesson to the individual. I like for students to have
a structured practice routine and working knowledge of music and their instrument, but it has to be fun. I have students who learn Classical, rock, and Jazz. Each lesson is different. Some people just want to be able to play their favorite songs by a camp fire, and others want to go on to perform at Carnegie Hall. I enjoy teaching both lessons and put forth the same enthusiasm for each one. You get out of the guitar or bass what you put into it in terms of learning and practicing. The level of achievement is up to you, I will help guide you to meet your goals regardless of how large or small they are.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Spare music room: guitars, amps, bass; computer with recording software, ProTools seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all the equipment necessary. I would like the student to have an instrument, but if not I can provide one for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm really pretty versatile. Over 18 years of teaching anywhere from 80 to 100 students a week will do that.

Jon is a great teacher. He is very patient with my 8 year old and has been very flexible in working with us if we need to reschedule. He makes sure that she continues to build her basic skills (musical notation, playing techniques, etc.) while also making it fun by using current songs. He is amazing- would highly recommend him!

About Kate
I started teaching piano lessons privately while I was a student at the University of Texas. My students range from 5 to 14 years old, introductory to intermediate playing levels.

I have an extensive background in music theory including classical piano training, contemporary guitar, years of choir, and personal voice coaching.

I have a special ability to work with young and inexperienced students. I am the perfect teacher for a student that is just being introduced to the world of piano. I am also a great teacher for those students who have a light background but are just starting to be re-introduced to the piano.

Both of our kids (8 and 6) have been taking lessons from Kate for several months. Our kids started lessons with no experience and have made great progress in a short amount of time. Kate has a teaching approach that has been well received by our children. Kate ensures the kids remain challenged week to week while still having fun. We are lucky to have found Kate and highly recommend her if you are looking for a great piano teacher.

About Guitar Lessons With Todd

"Todd is a very gifted and motivated guitarist with an uncommon aptitude for teaching."
Rodney Stucky

"Todd is passionate about teaching, and dedicates himself to this with utmost energy and purpose. He is always extremely successful in producing a high level of achievement with every student." Jeffrey Van

One of the most important duties of a competent instructor is teaching students how to practice. This is just as true for the rank beginner as it is for the advanced student, or even professional. Everyone can learn to play music and play it well if given competent instruction. Learning to play well is learning about the mind and body, and how to use it to one's potential. As the awareness of the self is refined, not only is the playing improved, but the potential for greatness is elevated. Lea
rning to perform music with security and confidence is fun!

About Andy
I am an educator, composer, and performer based in Cincinnati, OH. I have studied piano for 25 years with masters and doctoral degrees in piano and composition from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

Piano students should expect progress in technique, reading, aural skills, and improv/composition. I enjoy teaching a variety of ages and levels from beginners to those that want to major in instrumental performance. I draw out each student's natural creativity, motivation, and strengths so that they develop into a unique and independent musician. The ultimate goal is to teach myself out of a job.

As a composer, I have been commissioned to write pieces for pre-college students across the country, concert pianists, Cincinnati Public Radio, and regional piano competitions. I am also the director of the Creative Co
mmissions project that pairs creative professionals with pre-college music students to collaborate on creating unique and accessible new works.

Andy is constantly working towards making the learning experience outstanding. Thank you, Andy!

About Andy
I started playing guitar in the late 60s. Started playing professionally for approximately 5 years around 1978. Played music off and on until 1993 when I got involved with my churches worship band. Began teaching around 2008 at Sidekick Studios.

I teach beginners and intermediate students of all types, from 9 yr olds wanting to play Taylor Swift songs to 55 yr old guys wanting to learn blues. I can play and teach a variety of styles including country, pop, rock, blues, folk and introduction to jazz.

I get the most satisfaction when a student latches on to an idea and runs with it, or when a student thinks they can't do something and together we work and accomplish it!

I am going into my TENTH year of teaching and plan on being around a long while!

Also, I am currently playing in an acoustic rock duo and also enjoy playi
ng solo acoustic gigs at small venues around town.

Our son was a student of Andy's for 5+ years and truly enjoyed his experience with Andy. Andy is a very patient and an inspiring instructor who really knows music and guitar well! Andy was always good about being available for our son during the week if he had questions about his homework or guitar lesson for the week! Andy always praised our son when needed and challenged him in a professional manner to increase his love of the instrument!

Andy started teaching Pranav at age 6. Pranav took lessons from Andy for over 8 years. Andy has a wonderful encouraging style. He knows when to be firm and when to be kind. We moved to China, otherwise we would still be there every Saturday :) when we return in the summer, Andy is always on our list of people to visit.

About Matt
Greetings!

I am Matt Dickey, a violinist and violist who loves teaching. I have been teaching lessons full time for about 8 years now. I work with students who are complete beginners with no musical experience or background all the way through advanced high school students in youth orchestras. I do a lot of professional performing myself and bring that experience to my teaching.

My lessons are tailored to fit your needs as a student. One thing that parents of my students tell me over and over again is how patient I am when helping their child learn to play the violin or viola. When you come to me to learn, I will stay by your side in your journey to learn music.

I would love to help you learn to play the flute! In my lessons, we work on scales, notes, reading music, tone quality, and much more. I will help you learn to be a well-rounded musician who can read music fluently and produce beautiful music!

My lessons are a great compliment to school band programs in the area. I am the music teacher and band director at a Catholic school in the Mariemont/Madeira area, and I am happy to help with your school's band curriculum and music. I am also happy to help you prepare for collegiate and honor's bands auditions.

My lesson are also great for the stand-alone musicians who simply want to learn flute for individual fulfillment. We can start with our first lesson being one where you learn how to put your flute together and make those first sounds!

Kelly is a wonderful teacher! She is knowledgable, encouraging and patient. My 11 year-old daughter takes flute lessons from her and she told me recently that, "Mrs James is good teacher because she is fun and encourages me, but also tells me when I make a mistake and how to fix it. I like that she is honest with me and shows me how to get better."

About Zhen
I'm a professional pianist that's been practicing for 16 years and am currently studying at University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. I am familiar with a wide variety of teaching and performance styles through working with experts of different schools and ideologies around the world. I am also familiar with piano playing for all difficulties, ranging from professional international competitions to playing for a local church choir. During Summer I am available most of the time and during school time I'm usually available in the afternoons and the full weekend. Any schedule and length of lessons are welcomed. Lessons will be professional, friendly, effective, to-the-point, interesting, and fun!

I hope to work with my students on any and all problems on their piano journey, using many approaches I learned first-hand from c
redited experts of schools around the world. It is my dream and vision that I can become of help for people that has love for music and is going through the same struggles that I once went through as an aspiring musician. My style is "keeping it simple"-- if one can't explain the most complex topics in the simplest words, that person does not understand the subject, as I have been the victim of unfriendly, fancy and over-the-top ineffective teaching for my career, and I seek to make the change and put an end to this in my teaching. It will be my honor to be working with every one of you!
