This course is designed to help students of all ages, learn the fundamentals of piano. We will focus on proper technique, music theory and most important ear training. I believe music is a language and you must develop your "ears" to understand how to fully play piano!

About Christine
Thanks for checking out my profile! I can't wait to get started. Please make a note, I'm offering online lessons for the month of January 2019 until I complete a music teaching project out of state. I will be back in my vocal studio the beginning of February 2019.

“Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you'll feed him for a lifetime." This is my philosophy of teaching.

I specialize in Pop, R&B, Musical Theater, Spiritual, Gospel, and all other forms of contemporary music.

I started performing on stage at the age of four years old. I began formal private lessons in voice and acting at the age of 10 at The Newark School of the Arts and at The Children’s Theater Workshop in Essex County, New Jersey. As a young teen, I also began directing and leading the youth and adult choirs in church. As a re
sult of my commitment to my craft I had numerous opportunities to perform and record as an accomplished artist throughout the United States and abroad.

As an international performer my credits include touring throughout the country of China as a lead singer for the state of the arts Thai City Theater. Other recent credits include working as a lead production singer for the renowned cruise line, Carnival; sailing the Western and Eastern Caribbean islands performing Las Vegas style production shows.

I am currently the CEO of my own entertainment company 2-4-1 Entertainment and mobile music school. I perform regularly for various commercial establishments and private venues.

I studied Music and Theater at Montclair State University earning a BA degree along with a teaching license in performing arts.

With all that said, I describes my greatest accomplishments as sharing my passion to sing to all who are willing to learn. I am as passionate about teaching as I am about performing.

*** Lesson Details ***
If you love singing, then you should love your lessons. Lessons with me are fun, challenging as well as enriching.

Instruction will include:

-Light stretching exercises to reduce tension and relax muscles that can block good vocal production and vocal freedom.

-Carefully listen to, accessing and giving you feedback about your vocal potential and growth

-Identifying vocal range and limitations

-Proper vocal techniques with respect to vocal scales, learning to breathe, pitch, tonality, durability and posture

-Selecting music collaboratively that suits your tastes and ability

-Working with professional backing tracks like many contemporary artists in the industry

-Lyrical interpretation with respect to performance

-Sharing the understanding of vocal anatomy and how it affects singing

-Allowing you to tape record lessons for practice purposes.

-Comfortable environments where asking questions are encouraged and making mistakes are simply part of the learning process.

-Teaching and practicing good vocal health, including the need to drink water and monitor the speaking voice

-Building confidence as a singer and performer

As much as I loves teaching and building relationships with voice students in my studio, I does not believe lessons should be limited to the classroom. The training process may include performing small venues for family and friends to acquaint the student to performing in front of an audience.

My goal is to teach students who have a desire to perform, the necessary rudiments of singing and performing so he/she can go out into the world and shine as a polished singer!

I brought my child who is currently 10 years old to strengthen her singing voice about a year ago. Within a very short span of time, my daughter developed a stronger singing voice and vocal range. She has good diction and more importantly she has CONFIDENCE.

This may sound odd, but lessons with Ms. Christine has helped my child deal with bullying at school. She now believes in herself and not afraid to sing and let her voice be heard. I'm so proud of my child and can't thank Ms. Christine enough for believing in my daughter. Thanks a million :)

I requested an introductory lesson since I had never taken voice lessons. I was so nervous and uncertain about my voice, but Christine made me feel so comfortable. She asked me what my musical goals were and actually helped me achieve my goals.

I never expected voice lessons to change my life, but I'm so much more confident with myself as well as my singing voice. Much love and success Christine. You're the BEST keep up the good work!

Students can first and foremost expect to an enjoyable time obtaining a good foundation in piano technique and the art of musical expression. Whether the student prefers Classical music or popular or Broadway tunes, I am there to help master the repertory.

About Janet
I am outgoing, encouraging, friendly, and have a good sense of humor. Music is a passion, and teaching is my vocation. I have been on the music faculty of Colorado State University, University of Puget Sound, and Duke University, and I was the contracted keyboardist with the Southwest Symphony Orchestra for many years. These professional teaching experiences have taught me much about teaching and the needs of students, and all this I bring to your lesson. My musical interests are not strictly classical. I adore jazz and pop and was even the lobby pianist for the Westin Hotels. I am here to help you with whatever style music you love.

*** Lesson Details ***
General Information about lessons—
• In-studio lessons on grand piano and/or harpsichord
• Ages 4 and to 99 years of age (and older!!)
• Levels beginner and advanced

• Classical, Pop, Broadway, and Standards

I offer lessons always with a smile, encouragement, and plenty of positive feedback. I have many years of experience teaching piano and music theory, and I promise that your lessons will be enjoyable and rewarding. Learning music must be built upon a strong relationship between teacher and student, and this is relationship involves good communication, honesty, open mindedness, and a recognition that all students are different and at various skill levels. These are my guiding principles. Although I am a classically trained pianist, I have experience as keyboardist with an eclectic trio playing anything and everything from pop to jazz, and as the lobby pianist with the Westin Hotels. I approach teaching by first knowing and understanding the student's musical goals, and teaching fundamentals, theory, and technique through the style of music that the student wants to learn. The Alfred Piano Methods—used by many universities—is my preferred instructional books for the beginner and intermediate student, but I am also quick to supplement with additional FUN material tailored to the student’s interests whenever possible. Learning music will promote confidence in your abilities and satisfaction in your accomplishments!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ grand piano, harpsichord, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I enjoy teaching students of all ages and have had success with students as young as 4 as well as 65 years of age. Particularly satisfying is helping adults reach life-long goals of learning music. I excel in teaching the classical repertory, but I have a passion for popular music and other types as well.

Charlie is an awesome teacher and my 6 year old enjoys the guitar lessons. We like him so much better than the original independent teacher we had, with whom we felt rushed all the time, and we didn't get our money worth. With Charlie is different, he is patient and has the right approach for kids beginners; we highly recommend him to others.

I have played piano since I was five-years-old. I had an amazing teacher who was always engaging and fun -- I strive to be like her with my students. I generally use Alfred or Bastian Methods to start out and then adjust according to my students' needs. I encourage daily practice and always am willing to consult with parents of younger students on how to implement this. I also love to encourage my students to chose music they'd like to learn!

About Becca
I am a friendly, outgoing, and passionate music teacher! I play the harp and piano and absolutely love to spread the joy of music. I started playing the harp because my grandmother was a harpist and I thought it was the most beautiful instrument. After all these years, I still love the amazing sound of the harp. I completed my degree in Harp Performance from University of Denver's Lamont School of Music where I received a well-rounded education in both performance and academics (including theory, history, and technology). Please let me know if you have any questions- can't wait to get started!

· Harp · In studio
I am a beginner harp student at the age of 64, and also a Professor with fairly high expectations. I wasn't sure what to expect from a young teacher like Becca. Within minutes I could tell she is a natural at teaching the harp. What impressed me the most was that she understands every person learns differently. She is sensitive and thus listens to the student's comments and intuitively knows how to respond in the best way. She also has a lot of patience - being a perfectionist I wanted to repeat over and over certain movements and Becca was right there with me, giving me fresh guidance along the way. I learned so much with her and will always remember our lessons with gratitude.

I have been playing music since I was 3 years old and have been teaching for the last 5 years. I set up every lesson plan to match what the student would like to learn as well as making sure to meet the parents goals and expectations. I work with all ages and all levels. I also work very well with those that have special needs such as Autism. Every lesson is engaging and exciting, it is never a dull moment.

About April
I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music between schools, the San Diego Youth Orchestra. I currently work with several students with special needs such as Autism and other Neurological delays. My son is Autistic and music was a great way for him to express himself. I found that the other children I work with on the spectrum have more abilities to express themselves through music then with words. I also work with students that are not yet comfortable with themselves and getting them to breath and enjoy the music helps bring them out of their shells.

I regularly find myself jamming o
ut with another music instructor every chance we get. Music is a great relief and enjoyment that I want to share with as many people as I can. I am currently in college getting my Bachelors degree in History with a minor in Music.

Jazz piano and general piano lessons taught by a New York conservatory-trained pianist.

Alex Sjobeck holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies from the Manhattan School of Music and a Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies from the University of Northern Colorado where she taught collegiate classes while obtaining her degree. She has taught semester-long classes as well as master classes at universities and high schools across the united states and has been teaching private piano lessons to students from ages 7 to 26 for over a decade. Her talent and knowledge of music is shown through her flourishing teaching career as well as her performance career which has led her to record several albums and perform at acclaimed jazz clubs across the United States such as the Velvet Note in Atlanta, GA and Dazzle in Denver, CO.

About Alexandra
***Now enrolling students to begin lessons March 2019***
-----Please inquire about lesson times before scheduling------

At a young age, pianist Alexandra Sjobeck’s distinctly captivating style led her to move from Idaho to New York to immerse herself in New York City’s jazz scene. Her unique sound is comprised of a voice all her own which relies on nuanced intricacies in both her arrangements and improvisation paired with familiarity, whether from pop music, world music, or from jazz greats including McCoy Tyner, Bill Evans, and Herbie Hancock. One of her regular sideman summarized it as “the combination of Post-Impressionistic painting, a jigsaw puzzle, childhood, and groove.” During her time in New York, she studied with some of the top jazz artists in the world and obtained a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the Manhattan S
chool of Music.   More recently, she completed her Master’s degree in Jazz Studies at the University of Northern Colorado as a teaching assistant. Throughout the last two years she has been actively performing with the nationally touring trio SBST as well as the Sjobeck Baker Duo and has played at venues such as The Velvet Note in Atlanta, Georgia and Dazzle in Denver, Colorado. Beyond her performance career, she has had her hand at a variety of other projects including: recording three albums as leader and co-leader, composing the music for a short film, conducting and debuting an original big band arrangement at a University of Northern Colorado concert, teaching jazz ensemble classes, and presenting workshops and masterclasses in Colorado, Georgia, and Idaho.
