Private Music Performance Teacher

Music performance includes the methods of bringing a piece to an audience. It includes acting, body language, tone and expression in the voice. It may also include discussions of what the song means to the performer and how they would like to share that.
I recommend adults take from 45 minute to 1 hour lessons weekly for skill building. The price of lessons DECREASES by 10% after each 5 lesson purchased for the first 15 lessons.

About Julia

I have a Master’s in Opera Performance from the Boston and New England Conservatories as well as graduating from Vocal Performance programs at Boston University and Western Washington University.

My daughter has learned so much with Julia in the past few weeks. It's been a true pleasure to witness the progress. They have worked on sight reading, tone, physical posture, and many other aspects of singing and sound production. Julia is a very caring and supportive instructor. She is full of enthusiasm and humor, and this shows in her choice of singing materials. We look forward to having more lessons with her!

Online one lesson in so far, but Julia seems to be a very talented and patient instructor for children.

Online Music Performance Teacher

Throughout my time at Berklee, NEC, and now Juilliard, I have studied with many great teachers and musicians from Wynton Marsalis, Eddie Henderson, Kenny Barron, Tiger Okoshi, John McNeil, and Laurie Frink to Jerry Bergonzi, and Miguel Zenon. The diverse subjects we went over in lessons and classes gives me a unique knowledge of certain styles and musical ideas. I try to be as personal and individual as I can when it comes to teaching students. That was the thing that stood out amongst my favorite teachers.

Playing notes and making music are two very different things! I can help you with your musicianship and performance skills!

About Roni

Are you or your child interested in learning how to play piano? I am a former child prodigy and an experienced soloist / teacher whose talent was fostered by the highest of Russian Classical Pianist Pedigrees from a very young age. I have a lot to share. Learning the piano, isn't just about learn

I highly recommend Roni if you are interested in learning to play the piano or improving your existing piano skills.

As a retiree I found it difficult to find a teacher that would take on an older / beginning student and offer in home lessons. Her schedule is flexible and she is very accommodating of my obligations. I am extremely fortunate to have found Roni. She is an incredible pianist (she can provide links to some of her performances) who makes learning fun. I actually look forward to my lessons. She takes the time to learn about your musical interest and goals and then tailors your lessons to provide you with a positive, motivating and enjoyable experience.

Excellent teacher!!!
Ms B.
Roni B is a treasure! So wonderful! We are so blessed to have found her.

There were several options in the valley, and you can never know if there will be that 'connection' with a new teacher.

Roni is patient and she got me! Knew exactly what I needed to learn.
I have had other teachers, and RONI B IS THE BEST!!!

Im giving her card to ALL my friends, even if they don't play piano!

Thank you Roni. Now don't get too busy so you can't work with you number one student lol!

"What makes a great teacher is not only loving what you do, but also loving the people you're teaching. Jordan D. has a big passion for music, and a big heart for equipping people for the musical endeavors ahead of them. He is always encouraging and always positive. Even if I feel like I could have done better, he celebrates me where I am, which has taught me to have more confidence while singing, playing guitar or charango, and even glockenspiel. Thanks Jordan for being a great teacher! -Loren Lemon"

"Hallie's dedication and passion is second to none. I had the honor to see her at Sewanee conducting a symphony performing a piece that she composed. In order to put that production together, she had to conceive of the piece, write the parts for each performer, and teach all the musicians how it should sound through rehearsal. It was amazing. That same weekend, she was the soloist performer for a flute concerto and you could see that she really knows her stuff! Her ability to communicate her vast musical knowledge is what makes her a fabulous teacher. I highly recommend Hallie for your music lessons."

"I hired Danny to help me in the studio. I was recording about 3 songs I needed help with. On these original songs, I had been working on with another coach unnamed that had me do scales and but after hours of recording, the coach didn't know what else to say except breathe deep. With Danny in about 15-20 min, we were able to knock out my songs easily. Danny isn't your average instructor. He actually goes beyond scales. Some of my issues in were singing close to my break and certain phrases were hard to work with. Others were as basic as the way I was standing. I am impressed."
