*** 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 Clint
"The Harmonica is my specialty as a professional performer and teacher. It's not my 2nd or 3rd instrument, but my primary one that I've spent a lifetime mastering. I've been teaching, performing and recording on the harmonica for over 30 years and I'm an expert on both the chromatic harmonica and the ten hole diatonic "Blues Harp". I work with absolute beginners to the most advanced professional level in a wide variety of styles. My lessons are tailored to suit your individual needs."
Clint Hoover originally hails from Minneapolis, MN and began playing the “harp” after seeing Muddy Waters perform. A rare breed of musician, Clint has mastered both the chromatic harmonica and diatonic blues harp. From modern jazz to pre-war blues, Clint has delved deep into the musical possibilities of the harmonica. A professional for decades, he's lent h
is talents to movies, commercials, TV, radio, theater, instruction books and countless CD projects. His own albums have received rave reviews nationally and internationally. He’s worked with diverse artists ranging from jazz guitar wizard and composer Reynold Philipsek, to folk blues legend Papa John Kolstad to Nashville songwriter Tom Mason. With a reputation of musical flexibility, he became a sought after studio session player. As a respected music educator, he was on staff at Mpls Community and Technical College, McNally Smith College of Music, The West Bank School of Music and The Homestead School of Folk Music. In New York City, he attended Parsons/New School Jazz and Contemporary Music Program and studied with classical harmonica virtuoso Robert Bonfiglio.

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 Denise
I was educated on organ and classical piano as a child through late teenage years, playing and winning competitions regularly. I received a B.S. Mechanical Engineering and worked in the corporate world as design engineer and software sales manager. Later as an entrepreneur, I created and ran a design and retail business.

My interest in classical music performance renewed as a mid-life adult. During the past five years I have been trained by a highly respected performance and pedagogical leader and attended summer workshops where I received private training by a Juilliard graduate and concert pianist. I also have acquired an in-depth knowledge of college level theory through private tutoring.

I have attended many educational conferences, seminars, and master classes and participate regularly in recitals. I currently work as a substi
tute church pianist.

My life experiences have given me the ability to communicate well with various types of people and styles of learners. I do not utilize only one method series as I structure my curriculum to the individualized needs of each of my students. It is my goal to not only teach the proper technique and repertoire of the piano but to bring the peace and joy of music learning and playing to my adult students.

Dustin was Fantastic! Could hear an immediate improvement with a cleaner sound of my son's playing. Dustin is calm and easy going but still addressed the issues my son was having in a positive and relatable manner.
So excited that we are able to have Dustin tutor my son for the trombone.

About Miranda Bartira
Hi! My name is Miranda and I'm a Bassist and Music teacher. I've been playing and teaching Music for more than 15 years, and I've had students of all ages.

I'm Brazilian, and I've performed in several orchestras, both in Brazil and in the US. I've also played in musicals (Cabaret, Gypsy, The Wizard of Oz, Fiddler on the Roof, among others) - this is something that I really enjoy doing! I'm also a singer, and I've sung in choirs and in Bossa Nova and Jazz bands.

I have a Master's degree in Performance (bass) and another one in Popular Music (Brazilian Music). Right now I've just moved to Pittsburgh, PA, for my PhD in Musicology.I love to learn about Music!

A little bit about my experience as a Music teacher: I've taught at universities, conservatories, social projects, private studio, K-12... I love to teach Orchestra, and I'm a
conductor. I write arrangements for my orchestras now and then, mostly with a pedagogical intent.

I enjoy to teach kids very much, and I'm a certified Suzuki teacher. I also hold a standard certificate for Music (K-12), issued by the state of Texas, and I'm a member of TMEA. That doesn't mean I don't like to teach adults; my oldest student ever was 72! It's never too late to learn Music and to have fun doing it! If you want to give it a try, I can help you. Just contact me!

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.

After attending Berklee College of Music for jazz guitar and composition, I moved to San Diego and opened a recording studio, where I recorded and produced over 200 different artists.

Throughout my career I have taught private guitar and bass lessons to students of all ages and skill levels. Seeing people develop their own style and grow as musicians, is one of the things that brings me the most joy.

I am now in a nationally known touring band and travel about 5 months out of the year performing across the US and Europe.
