· Banjo · In studio
I went into banjo lessons not knowing if I could master the instrument or not, being nearly 70 years old. While by no means a master (and never going to be), I have learned so much from Sam and he has shown such patience with me. I often leave my lessons wondering how he ever puts up with me - but he does. His encourgement, laid-back style, expertise and knowledge of music (plus theory) and the banjo is impressive. His good nature makes my lessons so much more pleasant. I would say Sam is a a great teacher for both a beginner or an accomplished musician or in between. He likes to talk and demonstrate (nice and slowly if requested) so I would recommend hour-long lessons at first.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods and traditional scales and etude books. I have the following tools available for your lessons: Metronome, Tuner, rosin and my music library. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Susanna is a great teacher.

I have never played a violin before, and she is walking me through the process with patience, clear instructions, different interesting and fun ways of explaining concepts, which make lessons flow easily. By the time the lesson ends, I can hardly notice that an hour has passed by.

It is a joy to have her as a teacher. I have had a few questions off schedule, and she has never failed to answer them promptly.
I look forward to every lesson I have with her to keep learning to play this beautiful and amazing instrument.

Learning an instrument is the most effective way to improve yourself. No matter if for a hobby or seeking a career, playing an instrument helps shaping your connections with yourself and others. With over 15 years of experience performing and over 10 years teaching students aging from 5 to 85 years old, I learned the most important surviving skill in our times, how to connect.
During lesson time we will approach technical aspects of the instrument, such as bow hold, sound production, intonation, developing dexterity in the left hand, and so on. Also, the phrasing, music making, repertoire development, and interpretation. Even though our lessons are specific developed for the instrument, music theory and ear training are important subjects to be addressed as well.
If you are looking for a constructive hobby for yourself or your kids, or you would like to put that forgotten instrument in use again, we will work with you to make this one of the most enjoyable experiences possible.
