*** Lesson Details ***
As a voice teacher, I believe that my job is to allow the students to discover their own unique characteristics. I like to teach in an relaxed environment where the student will be able to develop a healthy (learning bad techniques can be harmful to the throat and body) strong techniques. It is important for the students to learn their own bodies and limit, while being taught to use their bodies to help produce beautiful singing.

Singing is more than just about using their voice and achieving proper technique.. It is equally important to learn the music history, theory, acting, etc. appropriate to the piece they are working on. When everything comes together with proper singing and the correct knowledge, students will be able to perform a piece in an intelligent manner.

Finally, something I have learned from my previous teachers, it is important to go beyond being just a teacher, and become a role-model and a mentor to my students.

Bo is truly a great instructor!

As basically a beginner with piano, she deployed a perfect blend of patience and push. She makes lessons fun, works with you, but also pushes you to get better.

Bo is also very accommodating to your schedule and is great a working with you to make sure you get your lesson in.

I've taught public school elementary band for 30 years, have been a church organist for 70 years, and taught piano and organ for 57 years. I enjoy teaching music and working with students and believe that learning to read music will enable the student to play with other musicians and enjoy music as much as I have. I try to put myself in the student's place to think as he/she does and help them understand music and perform it.

About Bennie
Hello. If you want to learn to play and understand piano and music,... I can help you!

I teach, play and compose a variety of styles, such as pop, rock, blues, classical, jazz, and new-age music. I can show you how to listen to a recording and to play it without written music. Also, I can teach you to read a lead sheet/fake book/chord chart or the grand staff for piano. I can teach you simple or fancy chords/scales/songs.

I have played keyboard and or piano for the "Diana Ross Show Review", "Beatlemania" and various notable restaurant/clubs in Pittsburgh, Pa. I studied music at Duquesne University and studied privately with Frank Cunimondo for Jazz improvisation.

I enjoy helping students learn to play the piano and understand music. We will have a good time.

I can teach you the fundamentals and beyond and help you pursue all
of your musical goals.

Please listen to my CD, "Spaces With Time", on the "Bandcamp.com" website. I hope you enjoy it.

Ready to play? Let's schedule some lessons together soon.

I couldn't ask for a better teacher. Bennie has the talent and experience to help anyone trying to either learn from scratch or improve their current skill level. Due to the fact that I travel quite a bit with my business I used the holiday season to get a refresher course and Bennie was the right teacher for this. He gave me more in 5 lessons then I could have gotten from anyone else if I had 20 lessons. Unfortunately, I travel a lot for my business and I can't commit to a regular lesson schedule.

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!

David is an excellent teacher due to his cheerful attitude, his patience, and his ability to identify the issue that is hampering progress. I picked him specifically due to his years of experience and I can confirm that he is extremely knowledgeable in musical theory and good at explaining it as well. The only issue he might have is that he can be a bit talkative although personally I find it endearing. I Would highly recommend him to anyone that learns best through positive reinforcement.

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 Peter
Hi! My name is Peter, and I'm a young musician living in Southside, Pittsburgh. I attended college at Georgetown University, where I majored in Mathematics and minored in Music. I spent 3 years working for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, teaching all levels of mathematics up through Ordinary Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. My focus within music while at school was in Classical theory and composition, but I'm really into jazz, rock and roll, and the blues. I currently have a daytime job relating to mathematics, but in my spare time I write, record, and perform music as often as possible.

I've been a guitarist for about 11 years now, and mostly teach beginner to intermediate students. If you're just picking up the instrument, or have learned on and off for some time, then we would probably be a great match. I foc
us on teaching the basics of music as they relate to guitar, in order to establish good fundamentals and habits. I encourage students to write their own music while learning some of their favorite songs.

If you'd like to pursue guitar lessons or math tutoring with me, please contact me using the information provided. I look forward to hearing from you!
