About Robert
Creativity, skill and love of music are the key elements that I work to encourage in every student. Over the years my teaching has evolved and I find it gratifying to take people far beyond their own expectations while helping them achieve their goals. I believe everyone is musical and just needs the right key to tap into their own creativity.

For beginners it's important to study with an excellent teacher. Setting a solid and creative foundation makes all the difference!
For advanced players studying with a great artist takes you greater artistry.

Weekly private lessons focus on technical skills in either piano, voice (or a combination of both) and a strong musical foundation. Theory and Ear Training are fundamentals that are embedded in this approach to developing a complete musician and artist.

I have over 20 years exper
ience working with students as young as 3 and old as 85! Often multiple generations in a family study together making for a rich family experience.

Performance opportunities: Recitals, Concerts Cabarets and Musicals are a part of developing into a musician and singer and enhancing a love of music that will last a lifetime!

*** Lesson Details ***
Piano - Classical, Jazz, Blues and Improvisation. Current students are beginners to professional musicians and music teachers.

Voice – I am an accomplished vocal coach and songwriter and currently work with a wide variety of singers from young beginners to professionals who look to develop through ear training, singing and songwriting. In a unique way I guide people to become better performers and musicians through the combination of voice, piano and composition.

I work with students as young as 3 or 4 and into their 80’s. It’s important to begin with an excellent teacher from the start to set a good foundation and to have the ability to develop as quickly and thoroughly as possible. I enjoy working with beginners as well as accomplished musicians. I also believe that music is one of the great joys of life and that lessons should be FUN!

Besides a wide variety of performance opportunities through my Family to Family Concerts, I also offer my students the curriculum and exams of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, a gold standard music curriculum.. The ABRSM is accredited in over 100 countries worldwide and exams are offered twice per year in all instruments and voice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lesson room with grand piano, vocal mics, recording equipment. Parents can sit in on lessons and waiting area available, parking on street. No pets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They will need a piano or keyboard

*** Specialties ***
A message from Robert: Hello, I am a master teacher focusing on the classical repertoire along with a very creative approach to improvisation and composition. I help students to achieve their interests of music rather than focusing on teaching one particular method. Classes are tailored to the student and constantly evolving. This has led me to work in a variety of mediums and styles including Jazz, improvisation, rock and blues. This approach also enhances an understanding and love of classical music.
I also guide my students in the curriculum and exams of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. (ABRSM) Exams are offered twice per year.
I have also found it inspiring to work with people with disabilities and help them find a way to express themselves musically. I give lectures and workshops in the area and around the country on improvisation and creativity along with concerts of my own music.
I also work with a number of students in vocal coaching and accompanying.
New this year are seminars in songwriting for adults and children. Groups of 4-5 collaborate on new songs. Film and video composition coming soon!

About James
Hi there, My name is James Blackwell and I love trumpet playing!

While it can be frustrating from time to time - especially before developing your confidence as a trumpet player - learning what it takes to make daily progress as a trumpet player is incredibly rewarding and super fun! I am passionate about sharing these insights with students so that you may discover your sound and play the music you enjoy as quickly as possible!

As an instructor, you can expect lessons that are practical, straight-forward and easy to understand. The concepts that I impart on my students are those that have helped me survive a career as a full-time lead trumpet player and the challenges associated with performing every day.

My approach is to learn and develop the basic fundamentals of efficient brass playing. When you get your habits straight, t
he rest comes easily. Unfortunately, many students fall into some not-so-helpful habits along the way, and may find themselves struggling with range, quality of sound and endurance - even after many years of playing. However, with some simple and encouraging guidance, you can learn to master the instrument and the the music you enjoy!

All lessons offer both clear explanations and laid-out progressions that start where you are, and get you moving in the right direction from the start.

I do hope to see you for a lesson. All age groups are welcome to apply and I love teaching beginners. If you have particular needs you are wondering about, please send along a message and I will respond as soon as possible.

A bit about me...I began playing 23 years ago and hold two degrees in jazz trumpet performance - one from the University of North Texas where I played lead trumpet in the GRAMMY nominated One O'clock Lab Band, and another from the University of Southern California. During this time, I spent nine years in Los Angeles as a professional trumpet player recording for television, record dates and many types of live performances from the theater pit to the 10,000 seat rock show.

I am currently the lead trumpet player for the Brian Setzer Orchestra (of The Stray Cats fame) and have held that position since 2012. Aside from this, I love jazz, improvisation, and the big band style - everything from the early swing era to the contemporary writers of today is my music of choice!

As a lead and jazz trumpet player I have performed with Bob Mintzer, Carl Saunders, Scott Whitfield, Rich Perry, Willis (Bill) Holman, Ron Stout, Peter Erskine, Poncho Sanchez and many others.

James and I worked together on various live gigs and recording sessions over the course of about 9 years. Over those years, watching him form his concept and approach to both trumpet playing and improvisation has been quite inspiring for me. He emphasizes focus and being able execute all things with ease and precision. To me these are the hallmarks of building a well rounded musician. Whether you want to take your trumpet playing to next level, or just learn a thing or two, James is your guy.

James is awesome! I had the pleasure of touring with him in the Brian Setzer Orchestra in November and December of 2019. I played trombone and got to hear that fantastic trumpet section every night, lead by Mr. Blackwell. A calm and consistent force. Super clean and swingin lead trumpet. Also, a thoughtful guy and a problem solver. Anyone looking for online trumpet lessons I would refer them to James Blackwell.

James is a superb musician. He is so because he is a superb thinker and problem solver. He understands how learn and effect change and does so with infectious humor.

It would be the delight of any young musician to study with James. The payoff from James’ tutelage would last a lifetime. I can attest to this from my own experience. Over the many years of our friendship, I am always learning new things from James that help in so many ways.

He is a good teacher.

Hello! I've been singing since before I can remember and playing instruments for almost as long. I have a passion for music. Whether it's being onstage at York Little Theatre, directing the church choir in Red Lion, or paying with one of several local and regional bands, I love music and performing. There's no rush like sharing your passion with an audience, and I believe that with practice comes confidence and with confidence comes a great performer. I'll make my schedule/rates as flexible as possible to accommodate anyone who wants to learn! Let's get started!

He definitely knows what he's doing, wants to share that with his students, and took the time to learn about my goals and history with performing. Went above and beyond by sending recordings of exercises to work on at home. So excited to keep working with him.

Perfect first session. Michael adapted to Rory's deep understanding of music theory but total lack of knowledge of the bass. He was thoughtful, patient, and adaptive introducing the bass and providing practice suggestions to Rory. I recommend Michael in the highest terms as an instructor for beginners and knowing his vast education and experience in the bass I must assume this travels though the entire range of students - beginner to advanced. We look forward to the next lesson.

Dora has been very good at keeping our daughter interested in piano and helping to inspire her to more and more challenging levels of playing. She has incorporated Music Theory as a regular portion of the training and has made it more than just learning the piano by itself, but an understanding of music. Dora is very involved with Lancaster Music Teachers Association and this brings so many opportunities for involvement with recitals, additional training events and the chance to see many other talented students in our area. We are very pleased with the interest and dedication that Dora has shown in our daughter over the past 3 years.

Dora is a WONDERFUL teacher for anyone of any age seeking to learn and play piano!!! My nine year old daughter and I both started lessons with Dora almost a year ago and she works with us both so well. With great patience and persistence. She takes the time to get to know you and knows when to push you. She is really thorough; Dora has had us learning music theory since the beginning. Additionally she does not allow us to form bad habits; Dora insists on correct seat height, posture, the way to hold your shoulders, arms hands, fingers. No correct notes played with incorrect fingers permitted! Dora is a performing musician and often when we are arriving at her cozy home based studio we are treated to the soaring sounds of her playing the glossy Yamaha grand piano we play (someday we hope to make it sound even half as beautiful!) She is usually rehearsing for a show. Speaking of shows Flora had had my daughter perform with her other students onstage twice and me once. She offers her students opportunities for learning at other places as well. A solid education in the mechanics of playing and musical expression on the piano, music theory and performance is what you will receive with our dear Dora Zlatkin, who I am proud to call not only my teacher, but my friend too. She is the best!

Hi there! I'm Anna, and I'm looking forward to meeting you. I've been offering private piano lessons since 2009 and offer foundations in music theory, technique, sight-reading and classic piano repertoire.

I begin most students in Faber method books, before branching into classical repertoire including selections from Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary time periods. My teaching style is flexible though, so I'll be happy to adapt to your individual liking and needs.

In 2012 I graduated from Thomas Edison State College with a degree in music and in 2017 I completed my Master's in Education from Post University. Today I enjoy teaching music to students ranging from six years old through adult.

I believe quality practice and motivation are key to success, and I'm looking forward to helping you succeed!
