Peter provides me with challenging material to practice that fits both my ability and my interest. Often the music he provides is material that he hand writes. He has a knack for pushing past where I'm comfortable without overwhelming me. I would recommend him to anyone.

I really enjoyed my lessons with Peter, he was professional and kind as I took on a new adventure in learning cello and reading music as and adult. Skype was a wonderful option since I couldn't find any local instructors. There was a delay in sound at times so we would accidentally talk over eachother or I didn't know what was being asked to play, but we worked it out ans overall I would say it's worth it and would recommend Peter.

Julie P.

Maplewood, NJ

I focus on the foundations of music theory, as well as healthy practice habits to help my students succeed in any musical setting. I can get you started on the violin, improve your current abilities, work on school orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.

I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique.

We're very happy with Julie's flute lessons. My daughter switched from France to the US and working with Julie has helped her in the change and in progressing with her flute skills. Julie is a very safe choice.

Candis P.

Minneapolis, MN

I've been teaching violin lessons for 6 years to students ages 4 and up. My teaching philosophy is that every child can learn and that every child learns differently. Therefore, each of my students receives individualized lessons based on his or her learning style and needs. I have a degree in music performance and a K-6 teaching license. Students have the opportunity to perform in recitals twice a year. I can't wait to meet you and your child and start making music together!

Candis is a highly professional and passionate educator. Her ability to teach comprehension and foundational skills to young readers is incredibly strong due to her specialized training in some of the nation's most premier charter schools and her ability to teach music is even stronger. Her personal talent combined with her formal experience working as a classroom teacher make her an ideal music teacher for any student. She understands the technicality of her craft and presents it with passion and patience, helping even the most hesitant of students become successful.
