The private lesson experience is unique in that it allows for more “customized” instruction that group lessons or rehearsals alone are not able to give. The instructor and student work one on one as a “team” toward the ultimate goal: a better understanding of their instrument, and a higher level of musical development.

In every lesson, we will work to improve technique, tone production, and listening/music reading skills, among other things. I will assign exercises and/or pieces each week that are meant to challenge, not overwhelm! Sometimes I will assign an exercise that is expressly meant for a particular area in which the student may not be the strongest, in an effort to develop that area. Learning an instrument is a skill that takes time to develop, and it is within the journey where most valuable learning takes place!

Pittsburgh, PA
View Full Profile

Classically trained teacher available for beginning through intermediate students of all ages. I want to ensure that we focus on what you want to learn, that you are happy with your progress, master proper technique, and have fun!

About Jesica
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I started playing flute when I was 8 and bass when I was 13. In 2002, I moved to New York City to attend The Juilliard School, where I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Double Bass performance. I came to Pittsburgh to attend Carnegie Mellon University, where I got a Master of Music degree and a post-graduate Performance Residency Certificate. Since finishing at Carnegie Mellon in 2011, I have been freelancing in Western PA, Ohio, and West Virginia.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want to provide a fun, relaxed environment in which you feel appropriately challenged and comfortable to make mistakes. I don't have a pre-set course of music and exercises that I give to every student. Rather, I prefer to have a variety of music and exercises at hand so that we can find material that addresses the s
tudent's learning needs and is enjoyable for that student. I love teaching to all ages and levels, and I understand that each student's learning style and goals are different - the needs of a small child are very different than the needs of a student looking to get into a college music program. I want to ensure that you are happy with your progress, that you learn proper technique, and that you have fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music stands, an electronic keyboard, mirrors so that students can see and make corrections to their form, a music library, and seating for parents. There's easily available parking on my street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument to demonstrate on. I have an electronic keyboard that I can bring if a music theory student does not have their own piano or keyboard. Students are responsible for purchasing all books and materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music of all eras, from baroque through 21st century compositions.

Jesica takes the time to prepare my instument with tape makings and handwrites lessons for me to take home. Plus im playing 5 different scales after only two sessions with her. She also is starting to teach me the basics on how to read music. I couldnt ask for a better teacher to start me on the fundamentals of the upright bass. Very pleased so far and look foward to every lesson.

I was satisfied with the lesson. I wasn't noticing that Jessica had 2 E-Mails 'till the next day when I checked my PC. She said that she could be at at the bus stop when I got off the bus yesterday. That was alright anyway; I was a little bit early But she said that it was alright. Buses ether are early or late. (some times they don't show-up at all; I call the bus company several years ago & why it happened that way. They told me that they don't have time to look for another person to drive the bus & the guy calls up & he just wouldn't be there that day. Any was I liked the lesson & Jessica lives close to the 71C were I live. It was a short ride from my place were I live. It as a good lesson.

About Emmaline
Hi my name is Emmaline and I am a junior studying music education at New York University. I have 15 years of experience playing the flute, both as a soloist and in different bands and chamber groups. I believe what really drew me to studying music education was the joyful pride I found in tutoring students to help them grasp a new concept, interpret it in their own unique way, and use that new knowledge in a practical way. The confidence and satisfaction that students gain once they understand something new is, to me, is the definition of success.

In my music lessons, we will work on basic music theory (reading notes, playing rhythmn), build up a fun repertoire of favorite music (could include Disney songs, pop music, a video game theme song, you name it!), and how to put all those new skills into practice. I hope to make lessons into
a team activity where we can both learn and benefit from music-making. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Email me at Evan@ EvanMcGlennenMusic.com to set up a FREE first lesson to see if I'm the right teacher for you!

The hardest part about learning the flute is tone! I have tons of sound exercises that I can show you to help improve your sound by doing them a little bit each day. My main instrument is saxophone, so learning to double on flute has forced me to work on sound constantly. We can also cover technique, scales, single tonguing, double tonguing, and circular breathing.

About Evan

While attending the 5-week, I studied with Harry Skoler, Lance Van Lenten and other Berklee College of Music Faculty.

Today, I freelance around the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas playing a variety of styles on multiple woodwinds. I come from a large family so I'm very good with kids and

I would highly recommend Sierra to teach all levels of flute lessons! From beginner to advanced! I have been taking flute lessons from Sierra for the past two years and she has taken my playing to the next level. She has helped me develop the proper breath control, pure sound and technique that I needed to give me the next push into mastering the flute. Sierra is an amazing musician, teacher, and person. She works with all ages and levels, and is extremely patient and gracious as a teacher. She will show you everything you need to know and more!

Sierra is a fantastic teacher. Extremely knowledgeable and well-informed, Sierra made me feel accommodated and in good hands. Providing a more youthful perspective on classical music, she welcomed different methods that I wanted to try when it came to approaching technique. Sierra also is fresh out of undergrad and is on the road to her masters degree, which is super helpful for students who are in the midst of the application process for colleges. Thank you so much, Sierra, and I look forward to taking more lessons soon!
