About Sharon
I'm a classically trained pianist. I graduated from West Chester University with my Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance in 1985. I then went on to Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. where I earned my Masters degree in Piano Performance in 1987. Beginning in 1987 I taught at the Settlement Music Schools in Philadelphia. I remained there for 16 years working with virtually every level of student from beginner to advanced. From 2004 to the present I have been teaching in my own home studio in West Chester, Pa.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am an energetic, experienced, sincere, and patient teacher. I emphasize learning to read music as I believe this is the most important skill a student can possess. I also emphasize theory to help the student get a true knowledge of how music is put together. My goal is to help you understa
nd music so that you can learn on your own!

*** Studio Equipment ***
dedicated music room; 7 foot Steinway B grand piano

*** Specialties ***
I'm a classically trained pianist. I teach students to read music. I teach all kinds of music not just classical.

About Stephen
Stephen began violin lessons at age three. When his family relocated to Parrish, Florida in 1999, he joined the Florida West Coast Youth Symphony at age six and performed with them for six consecutive years, serving as concert master and assistant concert master. He then auditioned for The Venice Symphony and was accepted at age thirteen, the 2006-2007 season. He has performed with them for three consecutive seasons. In addition, he has also performed with the Sarasota Pops for two seasons from 2006 to 2008. He then joined The South Shore Symphony Orchestra in 2010, and performed with them for their first five concerts and has served as principal second violin. He also has joined Anna Marina Island Concert Chorus and Orchestra and has performed with them for the 2010-2011 season. In February of 2011, he relocated to the South Philly subur
bs and is currently performed with the Delaware County Symphony and the Rose Tree Pops. Throughout the years, Stephen has performed with Elicia in a number of events, including weddings, Christmas shows, and entertainment at restaurants such as the 800 Bay Restaurant and Club.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons offer an extensive education in technique, musicality, music theory, and most importantly, effective practice methods that increase capability and skill rapidly. I tailor my lessons specifically according to the student's abilities and strengths, while incorporating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Typically, I use the Suzuki and Strictly Strings books for beginner students, and I will then advance to etude studies such as Wolfarht and Sevick in addition to the Suzuki sequels for my intermediate students. Lastly, I will add Introducing the Positions, Mazas, Josephine Trott Double Stops, and solo concertos to my advanced students.

After a few months, my students acquire a well rounded knowledge and feel for the violin and classical music and appreciate the art and beauty music brings to life. They are always strongly impacted and inspired to pursue and achieve higher goals and activities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In the music room there is a piano and music stands, and music available for purchase if necessary.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring my own instrument, but would expect my students to have an instrument, stand (or a piano is fine), music (if it is not a first lesson) and a willingness to learn!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical violin, and I have worked with the Suzuki Method, but I am also very open to other methods and schools. I also teach varied styles of violin such as fiddle.

Most people think it is hard to learn anything, let alone the violin, online. But Stephen does a great job making online violin lessons just like an in person lesson! Had a lot of fun, and learned a lot. Looking forward to more lessons!

As a violin teacher, I am impressed by his ability to work with a variety of age groups and skill levels. He relates well to children and brings joy and humor to every lesson, while explaining the mechanics and the physics behind the technical aspect of music to more mature students.

I highly recommend Stephen to anyone who has a desire to learn the violin and a passion for music!

About Laura
I began my classical training in both piano and harp at a young age. As I progressed, I began studying piano, music theory, music history, and collaborative piano at the Pennsylvania Academy of Music for five years. I then earned my Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance with a Harp Minor at Houghton College 'Greatbatch School of Music' in New York where I taught both instruments and worked as an accompanist. After graduating, I moved to North Carolina where I taught over 60 students ages 4-65 at Cary School of Music for three years.

Following, I relocated to Los Angeles where I spent three years working as a performing musician and music teacher through the Royal Music Conservatory and MTLA. During my teaching in California, I became certified through the Music Teachers' Association of California where the majority of my students bega
n Certificate of Merit competitions.
While teaching privately, I began working full time as a music teacher at the Help Group School for Autism where I also maintained a position as the charity event choir director...performing with various artists such as the rapper 'Common' and former Temptations singer 'Luis Price.'

While most of my training is in the Classical field, I have a strong passion for contemporary music as well. I believe that both piano and harp have the ability to reach many different audiences. As a teacher, I believe in giving my students a strong Classical foundation while using the technique and theory to delve into other styles of music such as jazz and contemporary pop/alternative. With this instruction, each student will be able to find what music inspires him/her while having the skills and technique to further the chosen style.

My daughter has been taking lessons for 9 months and just did a 4 page duet with Mrs. 'G " at a recital. She is very energetic; she encourages and gives awards which the young kids respond to; sometimes her cat comes to listen. No pressure and the kids can pick some of the advance books of songs they like. We go in person but she is now open to Face Time lessons. She is also very flexible for sick days; snow days, and the typical crazy kid activity schedule. If you like personal, friendly postitive energy...Mrs. "G" is your teacher!

About Anna
Hi there! I'm Anna, and I'm looking forward to meeting you. I've been offering private piano lessons since 2009 and offer foundations in music theory, technique, sight-reading and classic piano repertoire.

I begin most students in Faber method books, before branching into classical repertoire including selections from Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary time periods. My teaching style is flexible though, so I'll be happy to adapt to your individual liking and needs.

In 2012 I graduated from Thomas Edison State College with a degree in music and in 2017 I completed my Master's in Education from Post University. Today I enjoy teaching music to students ranging from six years old through adult.

I believe quality practice and motivation are key to success, and I'm looking forward to helping you succeed!

Anna is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled musician, which inspires her students to want to excel themselves! My 7year old son has been taking lessons from Anna for about 2 years. He is excited to go to his lesson each week! Although my son struggles with some dyslexia, Anna is extremely patient with him and makes him feel like he is valuable and capable. She has adjusted the method and curriculum to find something that works well for him. She carefully explains the lessons, makes my son feel so special, and inspires him to want to learn.

Nothing is more satisfying than hearing yourself playing a song that moves and inspires you! With 14 years of playing guitar I now pass on that knowledge to my students. Helping people learn the fundamentals to guitar playing and music is both an amazing and invaluable experience. We will not only go over how to play the guitar but also music theory and how to write your own songs as well! I try to keep my lessons both fun and engaging as they are not just about drills and lesson plans but instead are catered to the individual student and what they want to learn! From young kids to senior citizens it is never too late to pickup a guitar and start playing!
