Adrienne K.

Philadelphia, PA

About Adrienne

Why and how did I get into taking harp lessons? Well, as a young girl, I remember being mystified by the harp in Fantasia and when I was in high school, my dad found a teacher. After the first lesson, I was hooked! My 10 years of piano study and 8 years of flute background helped me advance quickly at the harp while starting at the age of 16.

I began my higher education at Penn State University where I entered as a flute major and continued my harp and piano studies. After playing principal harp with the Penn State Philharmonic Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble, I realized harp to be my
true calling and switched my major instrument. I graduated from Penn State in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and completed a Professional Performance Certificate on the harp at Penn State in 2010.

I received a Masters of Music in Harp Performance at Temple University, where I studied with the principal harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Elizabeth Hainen. I have been lucky to have played some of the best orchestral repertoire in some of the most amazing concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Heinz Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Kimmel Center.

I believe to be an exceptional teacher you must be able to teach through example and be an exemplary performer which is why I continue to perform professionally throughout Philadelphia (and because I love it!). I have played with many groups throughout Philadelphia such the Curtis Institute, The Mendelssohn Club, the Landsdowne Symphony, St. Peters by the Sea, Zelda Symphony of Goddesses, Music At Penn's Woods, Nittany Lion Symphony, and Williamsport Symphony.
I am a classically trained musician who loves playing around with pop and jazz in her spare time. My philosophy is that I will teach whichever genre will inspire the student to sit down and practice!

I will encourage you or your child to become the best musician he or she would like to become, and l will tailor my teaching to my student's learning style. Whether you are taking lessons for fun or are disciplined and serious, you will be continuously improving while feeling challenged.

I promise if you start taking music lessons with me, you'll wonder why you hadn't started sooner!

Adrienne worked with my daughter on a special piece on the harp, which was new to her. She has a caring, consistent demeanor and high expectations for her students. My daughter enjoyed going to her sessions and learned in the best situation possible. Thank you Adrienne!

Ryan S.

Philadelphia, PA

About Ryan

Born in raised on the south side of Chicago Illinois, I grew up listening to A LOT of great Chicago blues guitarists. After receiving my first acoustic guitar I quickly gravitated towards learning to play blues and blues rock guitar at the age of 13. As my hunger for knowledge grew, I began learning and studying other genres of music through private lessons and lesson videos in the styles of Progressive Rock, Shred, Funk, Fusion and Jazz. Music study was a way for me to find structure, discipline, self worth and expression not confined to a 40+hr work life. Through that I grew as a person and
a musician. My sole reason for teaching is to help others find that passion and those qualities within themselves to live a beautiful and fulfilling life through his/her instrument.”

Adam K.

Philadelphia, PA

About Adam

I have been passionate about music all of my life. I have been teaching guitar and piano for 9 years. I'm a doctoral student at Chestnut Hill College pursuing a degree in clinical psychology with plans to become a music therapist. I learned guitar and classical piano under 2 private teachers while pursuing my Psychology degree and music minor at Rutgers University in NJ.

Music was a way for me to find peace, structure, confidence, and an outlet for personal expression and creativity outside of my everyday life. I've grown as a person and a musician through music. I get excited when I see
my students learn enjoy playing something new. I love music more than anything else and that love is something I try to bring out in my students. Once there is love for music, everything grows naturally. I teach to help my students find those strengths in themselves to live a fulfilling life through their instrument.

***Lesson Details***

We create daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to achieve.

Guitar: After 3 to 6 months of learning with me, you will have a basic knowledge of chords, how to read musical notation, strum to play. Most importantly, you will have learned 3 or 4 songs of your choice so that you can experience the joy of expressing yourself through music.
To achieve these results, you must be willing to practice 20-30 minutes a day.

***Specialties***

I specialize in teaching students to learn to play by ear and improvise songs based on their tastes, style, and ability level. I also walk students through how to write and record semi-professional quality songs with drums, vocals, guitar, and piano. Music genres I cover are mainly Pop, Pop/Rock, Folk, Blues Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative, and Classical (piano only)

*** Studio Equipment ***

I provide a comfortable, quiet room with live instruments, and playback and recording equipment. I expect students to bring a guitar, books, sheet music, picks, and a tuner.
Instruments:
1. Taylor Acoustic Guitar
--picks, tuner, and capo
2. Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar
-- Marshall 100W Amplifier
-- Classic Cry Baby Wah Effects Pedal
3. Casio PX-310 Weighted 88-Key Piano Keyboard

Playback and Recording:
1. MacBook Pro OSX 10.10.3 13-inch screen
- Insignia 27W Speakers with subwoofer
- Garageband
2. Steinberg UR-22 Recording Interface
3. Audio-technica M30 Headphones
4. Sterling Audio ST51 Black Condenser Microphone

Professional, responsible, and analytical. Adam is flexible and takes constructive criticism like a champ. As a music fan of local music, I hired him Adam after seeing one of his performances and he has never disappointed me. He is kind and accepting and an exceptional teacher - great listening skills, very compassionate, and completely non-judgmental. Adam kept me motivated through the challenges of a new beginner at guitar to get me to where I am today. He supported me to not be hard on myself and pushed me to grow. Adam has the unique set of interpersonal skills to excel in the music teacher field. I would recommend him to any student!
