About R. ROBIN

*** Specialties ***
Hi, I'm Robin and have been teaching voice, piano and music theory/composition for many years. I have had a professional career in singing, songwriting and performing, beginning at a very early age. I welcome new students and love bringing out the best in every individual. I also specialize in vocal audition preparation, bringing the student to a higher level of performance, ready to impress and make a great presentation when auditioning. I've had several students audition for The Voice and America's Got Talent, as well as, numerous local productions. Below I'll go over a few things I consider very important with a few of the subjects I teach.

For voice lessons, I specialize in teaching what the student has a desire to learn, together with great technique that will last a lifetime. I emphasize breath and diaphragm

control, flexibility and range extension.

For piano lessons, I combine great technique with a lot of music theory. For piano lessons, I do require the student having 24-hour access to a piano or keyboard. It's nice to have an 88-key, weighted key digital piano or keyboard. If you don't have an 88-key instrument, you want to strive for that. I prefer the student own a 'real' piano, if possible.

When it comes to composition/music theory, I love making it easy to learn, so it is never overwhelming. Learning theory properly can open up a whole world of songwriting. Having a heavy background in composition, I love the creativity that can happen utilizing the tools of music theory.

I can teach students with some special needs. Please use the tool "Ask A Question" to correspond with me more about this. Also, I do have 45-minute slots available, it may just not be reflected in my schedule, as the calendar doesn't allow me to show 15-minute time increments. If you have any questions about my schedule, please just shoot me the question and we'll talk about it!

My home studio is a fun, relaxed atmosphere and even though I focus heavily on technique, we're always going to have FUN learning and enjoy what we're accomplishing! Please keep in mind that when you schedule with me, I can only hold a time slot for one week for you. Also, if you are under 18 years old, you MUST have an adult sign up and pay for lessons for you. Thanks and I so look forward to meeting you!

Robin is a wonderful instructor! From the first singing lesson, she was very welcoming and helps you feel at ease. She has taught me a lot and I continue to learn and progress through her thorough, down to earth instruction. Each lesson with her continues to be a positive, fun, and, encouraging experience. I highly recommend!

Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching keyboard and music theory for almost 40 years and my students have learned to express themselves through music. My students have performed in recitals and in professional bands. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read and play piano music and as time goes on you'll be able to improvise and compose their own music!. I specialize in jazz and pop, typically use the Faber or Bastien books for beginners and the John Thompson books for more proficient students.

About Carey

Carey has been teaching private lessons since 1976 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, and online. Carey has helped students become proficient in different styles of music (rock, pop, jazz and classical), increased their confidence and self esteem , improved ability to improvise and achieve a greater understanding of music theory.
Carey received his training at The Ohio State University in 1976 where he received a Bachelor's degree in music theory and composition. As an expert in his field, Carey looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Carey's teaching style is patience with a good amount of humor!

Private Piano Teacher

Above all I want students to enjoy learning the piano. Most people start because they love a certain type of music or wish they could just sit down and enjoy playing. My goal is to make that happen. I teach all ages, beginners and intermediate levels. I think that lessons for children need alot of variety so that they can learn from games, singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano. Of course, singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano are what we all need but without the stickers at the end of your lesson!

About Nancy

Playing the piano and loving music has been at the center of my life. Aside from the happiness and fun it can bring, learning an instrument also teaches discipline and confidence which carry over into everything.

I enjoy teaching both children and adults. As I teacher I am patient and encouraging. Lessons should be interesting and fun but also focused on my teaching you the foundations of playing and practicing.

While my background is primarily in classical music, I really enjoy exposing my students to all types of music as they learn the piano. I play the piano, harp and harpsichord and have performed in everything from solo recitals throughout the United States, music festivals and freelance work with the New York Philharmonic to musicals on broadway.

Dr. Kostritsa has been a wonderful teacher for my daughters. They have made excellent progress with him over the last two years. His flexibility in allowing my older daughter to select some of her own music really helped with motivation. It's also inspiring that he composes and performs his own music as well.

Both of my children took piano lessons with Dr. Alex. He is a patient instructor who puts the needs of his students first. I like his demeanor with the kids as well. Dr. Alex is always in high demand, yet he is flexible and easy to work with.

My son has been taking lessons with Alex for over five years. They have developed a fabulous rapport and mutual respect. Alex challenges my son and helps to further his skill level and technique. He provides support and suggestions when choosing new pieces to play. Alex is flexible with regards to accommodating schedule changes and make up lessons. We couldn’t be more impressed with Alex as a piano teacher and mentor for our son and we are thankful that he shares his time and talents with young piano students.

"My son has been taking private classes with Miss Cindy for a few months, first voice and then piano lessons. He has taken piano lessons before at another
school, but he wasn't enthusiastic about it, he didn't look forward to taking class and it was a struggle to get him to practice.

The biggest compliment I can give Miss Cindy is that when I ask my son how his class went, he says "fun"!! He practices everyday . . . without prompting. He's always eager to play for anyone who'll listen. He really enjoys the piano and he especially enjoys taking lessons with Miss Cindy. If you're trying to find you're child's passion, Cindy's Music School is a good place to start."
