Bo, a soprano, is currently a DMA student at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, did Master's degree at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. Her performance experiences include opera performances, the major role "Alice" of Verdi's opera Falstaff at University of Illinois-Champaign, the main role"Lauretta" in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, Suor Angelica, singing in Duquesne University’s Aria Night, Night of Broadway and Cabaret Favorites, and Scene Night.

As a native of China, she completed her undergraduate at the Shenyang Conservatory of Music in Shenyang, China. Her performances in China include performances with the Shenyang Conservatory of Music and the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts.

*** 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.

About Gabrielle
Originally from Baltimore, classical pianist Gabrielle E. studied at Peabody Preparatory with a focus in performance and music theory. Later, she moved to Pittsburgh and received her Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance from Duquesne University and her Master's of Music Degree in Music Technology: Composition/Piano. She has won the Spring Piano Competition of the Duquesne Piano Department for three years in a row. She frequently records all periods of repertoire and also many original compositions. She has a strong passion for performing and writing the highest quality of music. If you are considering becoming a professional musician or are just interested in developing a rewarding hobby, she will help you accomplish your musical goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
First and foremost I want any potential student to know that I thoroughly en
joy teaching and want to help you explore your hidden talents and reach your fullest potential. With that in mind, the learning environment in my studio is relaxed and fun. I never condescend or put pressure on a student who makes mistakes. I encourage students to try new techniques and make mistakes along the way. I also work very closely with my students to achieve their own personal goals. I know that there are many different types of learners who all have different aspirations and I feel it is my job to ensure that my students are satisfied with their progress. I understand that someone hoping to attend a conservatory will have different needs than a small child. I promise to give nothing less than the highest quality teaching in an environment conducive to learning.

For piano students, I will spend much time on proper technique and making sure the student does not compromise the wrist, fingers, arms, or back which may create discomfort later. In the first 3-6 months a student can expect to learn technique, repertoire, and basic musicianship skills such as sight reading and transposition.

Composition/ Songwriting students will be coached according to what their specific goals and interests are. I incorporate the technical aspects of writing music along with music business which will help students get their music played and recorded.

Music theory students will practice skills such as four part writing, melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic dictation, modulation, roman numeral analysis, sight singing, and score analysis.

I do encourage the use of specific curricula but I am always willing to explore something new if you have a preference or have found success with something else. I hope that music will give my students lifelong enjoyment and I encourage you to come make music with me.

· 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.

I've been teaching piano for over 20 years and my students have gone on to major in music in college, become music teachers, and become lifelong lovers and players of music.. Within the first few lessons, you'll become comfortable at the piano keyboard and as time goes on you'll be able to play a variety of music in various styles. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About David
Hi, there! My name is David B. and I look forward to meeting you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1994 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!

TEACH THE STUDENT NOT THE SUBJECT has always been my mantra. You are my primary focus. But I've also given a great deal of my time to knowing my subject by being a leader in professional teaching organizations.

I would love to bring my experience to helping you make music more meaningful to your life.

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

First, we'll talk about your goals and what you want from the lessons. If you're a beginner, within the first few lessons, you'll be playing simple songs with both hands. I have been playing the piano since I was 6 and started teaching lessons at 16. I love teaching beginning and intermediate students. I typically use the Alfred books depending on age. I focus on a strong music theory foundation and solid practice techniques. We'll use audio and/or video recording to make sure you have an example to take home with you to practice with each session. I can't wait to meet you!

About Betty
I have worked as a registered nurse for 29 years and have taught nursing in the academic setting for ten years. I love working one on one with nursing students and have been asked to tutor many times over the years. If you're struggling with ABGs, Maternal Newborn or just need help overall to pass that do or die exam, come see me!

As for music, I have played the piano since I was 6 years old and have taught lessons on and off for the last 35 years (depending on my work schedule as a nurse). My training is in classical piano, but I have expanded to contemporary piano and piano accompaniment for soloists and choirs. I received organ training in college and have played many years for my local congregation. As for vocal training, I started at age 14 and have sung as a soloist and in various choirs. I love working with beginners and i
ntermediate students.

If you have questions, please let me know. I'd love to help!
