Kelly is a very open minded instructor. She's willing and able to adapt to the needs of any particular student. For me, a 24 year old with no singing experience, Kelly helped me ground myself and find the natural singing voice that I never knew I had.

About David
Hi, there! My name is David B. and I look forward to meeting you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1993 and have loved helping my students learn music in a way that not only increases their skill and knowledge, but also builds self esteem, allows for creative expression of themselves and creates lifelong music lovers. I went to St. Vincent College and earned a degree in music education, with a voice concentration and studies in piano and organ, in 1998. I'm a positive, helpful person and my teaching style is demanding yet patient. I strive to push students to be their very best, yet am patient while working to overcome the stumbling blocks we all encounter when learning. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Went to David about a year ago for audition help! I didn't have much piano experience, but the school was requiring violinists to perform a basic piano piece as well. He totally helped me become an expert in the single piece as well as teaching me other piano basics!

He's a very patient teacher and awesome personality to study with!

About Dan
I've been teaching piano since my teen years, even before I received my music degree. I have extensive experience in teaching piano, church music, organ, and theory and composition.

In my years I've been involved in professional piano teachers organizations as the National Guild of Piano Teachers and Music Teachers National Organization and have occupied leadership positions in these organizations.

I have had articles published in professional piano pedagogy journals and presently write for my blogs -- Piano Lessons PLUS Blog and Blogging at Piano Teacher Press .

I've written and have had recorded music for Sheet Music Plus and Piano Teacher Press where I publish books and compositions for piano students.

I am particularly proud of the work I've done with the young pre school beginner having written piano methods The Key
board Kids and The Discovery Piano System.

I would love the opportunity to teach you or your children and share my love of music with you.

My daughter recently started taking Piano lessons with Mr.Dan. During the first class, Mr.Dan analyzed her level of expertise and interests in music to understand where she stands. Based on that, he suggested a plan for her to learn further. It works well and she is all excited now. We look forward to many future lessons. We highly recommend him.

About Lisa C.
After playing the violin for over 20 years, Lisa was inspired to share the gift of music with others by her teacher, Susanna Sonnenberg. Lisa is a member of the American String Teacher’s Association, and has attended the 2017 ASTA National Conference. She currently performs with the Edgewood Symphony Orchestra. Lisa has played in recitals, the Chartiers Valley High School Orchestra, and was accepted to the 2006 PMEA District Orchestra. She has studied with Larry Weiss, Linda Andersen, and others. Lisa can’t remember a time before she learned how to play the violin; it has brought her great joy. Her favorite piece to play is the Bach Double Concerto in D Minor.

At 8 years old, Lisa fell in love with the violin. Throughout school, she studied with private teachers and played with the school orchestra. At home, her dogs were a great audie
nce.

Lisa went on to study history at the University of Pittsburgh, and later earned her law degree from Duquesne. She never forgot her violin, though, and continued to play in her spare time.

Music adds beauty to the world, and finally, after years of keeping the violin to herself, Lisa decided to share her playing with others. Lisa teaches traditional, classical method. The method books she uses include: Essential Elements for Strings, Samuel Applebaum, and All for Strings, among others. She supplements the technical exercises with repertoire from the Suzuki series. Lisa enjoys playing all types of music, in addition to classical, and teaches these songs, as well. Additional music includes pop artists like Taylor Swift, classic rock, electronic music like Lindsey Stirling, celtic, folk, and just about any other type of music you can think of. As a teacher, Lisa strives to be positive and encouraging. She believes that music should be fun, so her main goal is to make sure her students are having a good time!

About Ulises
I have played trumpet for 15 years, and taught lessons for 5 years. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in trumpet performance from Idaho State University, and a Master's Degree in trumpet performance from the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.

As a student who has overcome tension and anxiety, I can pinpoint any causes for these problems that a student may have. I am very understanding and I know that each student learns differently. I believe that music making should be fun, and I can help your playing be effortless so you can enjoy every moment of playing the instrument.

I have been contracted by several orchestras in Idaho in the past, and I have played professionally for memorial day services. I have played in brass quintets and am familiar with playing the correct style in a jazz setting.

Recently, I self produced
my own EP.

About Ky
Hello! My name is Ky, I am an experienced classical violinist recently settled in Pittsburgh. I am passionate about providing a unique learning experience based on the needs and goals of the student. We all approach learning new things differently, and that's okay!
I provide a comprehensive introduction to the violin, including base music theory and the tools we require to learn how to read sheet music and recognize notes.

I am more than happy to help parents/students find an appropriate instrument to learn on as well as any additional equipment the student may need.
I look forward to hearing from you!

I am hip to all directions and interests in regards to your musical desires. There are of course core concepts in music and playing the guitar that must be internalized in order to progress as a musician but there are many ways to approach these ideas and concepts. Every person has their own unique talents and attitude that will effect how they learn. Improvement will always require work but the act of playing music at any level of ability should be fun and enjoyable. Whatever style of music speaks to you, and whatever ability on the guitar you are after I can provide you with proper direction to help you achieve your goals.

About Ricky
I am from Dallas, Texas but moved to Pittsburgh to study with Michael Rusinek of the Pittsburgh Symphony. I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Southern Methodist University and my Master of Music and Advanced Music Studies Certificate from Carnegie Mellon University.

I taught middle and high school students in the Dallas area while I was working on my Bachelors degree and even completed an entire semester of student teaching to receive my Teacher Certification to teach public school in Texas.

What I enjoy about teaching is helping students reach their goals and being able to see their improvement from week to week. Everyone learns differently so it is a lot of fun to try different things and find the specific way that each student will thrive.

My daughter had been with another instructor before we were able to get a place in Linda's studio. I knew that Linda was a good teacher, but just how good became even more apparent once we moved our daughter to be under her instruction.

By far, Linda's approach was far more comprehensive. My daughter walked away with a knowledge of music theory as well as learning how to play piano. In addition, she was given opportunity to play in front of both smaller groupings and larger crowds; both were invaluable in terms of giving her the confidence to perform in front of others.

I have recommended Linda many times over the years! I continue to give her my highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed!

I have been taking lessons on and off for the past 5 years. As an adult student, learning new things can be intimidating and frustrating. Linda is extremely patient and knows how to pace the material and selection of music towards the level of the student. She also teaches my 9 yr old daughter who has become a more confident pianist.
