About Patti
Hi! I am a classically trained pianist originally from Syracuse, NY. I graduated from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA where I studied piano under Professor Alec Chien. I also enjoyed playing the French horn and percussion with the Allegheny Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble.

I have performed numerous piano solo recitals, as a featured pianist with the Allegheny Wind Ensemble, in piano duos, a piano quartet, small instrumental groups and in the pit orchestra for musical productions. I know the skills and technique needed to play as a soloist and in different types of groups. I am eager to share this with aspiring pianists.

I have 6+ years experience teaching private lessons to young children and 3 years experience in teaching fun group EZ play organ classes to senior citizens. My senior year I was also a substitute teacher for b
eginning class piano at Allegheny College.

So whether you’re looking to study as a serious pianist, just as a hobbyist or somewhere in between, I can guide and teach you along your journey.

I started piano lessons when I was 8 and music has been a part of who I am ever since. My goal as a teacher is to make a students' experience positive and rewarding. I have studied under 3 piano teachers in my life. Each teacher had a positive influence on me personally and musically. I strive to do the same for my students.

I am the strongest and most comfortable working with beginners of all ages. I get great joy out of seeing people realize their dreams or desire to start playing the piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to use the Bastien or Alfred piano methods. Students will be engaged and excited with the progress they make. For the younger students 5-7 I prefer the Bastien method which includes 2 books: lesson book and theory/technique book. For young students 8 and up the Bastien method includes 4 books: lesson, Theory, Technique and Performance/Solo. For adults I use the Alfred's Basic All-in-One Piano Course. Once students are ready I incorporate chord progressions, scales, sight reading and ear training into the lessons. Each lesson builds on the concepts and skills learned in prior lessons. I provide an opportunity for students to perform in a recital twice a year to show family and friends their progress.

I put great importance on proper technique right from the start. Poor technique can frustrate a student and therefore hinder their enjoyment and sense of accomplishment.

Lessons incorporate things that appeal to different learning styles. For example, a visual learner may really enjoy the flashcards to help learn the notes on the staff. For an audible learner they may look forward to hearing me play a new musical passage for him/her before talking about it. Finally, clapping a rhythm before playing it can really benefit the kinesthetic learner.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

My name is Gleb V. I am a professional music instructor and performing musician. I have sixteen years of teaching experience for children and adults of all ages, and have been recording and performing internationally for over thirty years.

Specializing in saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano, I have experience in both public and private after-school programs, as well as in-home lessons settings. My formal music training began at the age of five in Vilnius Lithuania with the famous Vladimir Tchekassin. Since then, I have excelled in my saxophone studies at the Vilnius Conservatory and at the Music Academy in Cologne Germany while pursuing an active performing career. Most recently, in 2005, I followed my passion for teaching music by completing an advanced Instructor program in Instrumental Pedagogy at the Music Academy in Cologne.

I have developed a teaching method that is efficient and creative, and is backed by over thirty years of professional performing experience.

About Dale
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.

Hi, I've been studying electric mandolin and guitar with Andrew for some time. He is so kind and enthusiastic, and really understands how to teach me at my level. He has been teaching me the deep theory behind improvisation in bluegrass, newgrass, rock, folk...and has an incredible mind full of music, riffs, scales, and chords from all genres. I've gone back and forth from guitar to mando with him, translating the same information onto the different fretboard, building my knowledge and appreciation of music, and I can now improvise confidently while playing out!

About Diane
DIANE'S PIANO LESSONS. I'm a trained classical pianist/former band musician who played at age 2-1/2. Studied classical piano age 6-18, played in bands 20 years and still fill in with bands occasionally and play solo piano for wedding, parties, banquets, etc. I use Schaum course books with Schaum or Alfred's Classical until advanced enough to play Sonatina's/Concerto's, etc. In the summer, I let the students pick their preferred music. In addition to basic books(Schaum, Scale, Fingerpower,chords, Notespeller, Classical, if the student is interested, in about 2 years I add the extra "outside of the box things" i.e., playing by ear, writing music, transposing, developing your own style. Lessons geared towards the big picture of students being well-versed in whatever they decide to do with their music and bringing each student to their "Pe
rsonal Best." I also put the assigned lesson (last 5 min of lesson) on tape/iPhone so students have an audio or visual of assignments. I love doing this & feel blessed to be able to do what I love for a living.

Diane is an awesome teacher! So glad to have found her! She taught all three of my children for years, and they all have a love and appreciation for the piano. Diane taught them what my piano teachers did not teach me! They can transcribe music, they know all the chord progressions, and she even had them writing their own pieces :) I still want to take some lessons myself when i retire! Diane also taught my ADHD son when no other teacher we tried would! Patient, kind, and a great teacher! I highly recommend her! Thanks, Diane!

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!

He's a very patient teacher and awesome personality to study with!

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!

Hi! My name is Emma and I would love to teach you singing lessons!

A bit about me:
I graduated from Nazareth College of Rochester with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and performed with opera companies, young artist programs, and choirs upon graduation. I currently sing with the Oratorio Society of New York.

I was a long-term music substitute teacher for 6th grade general music. I taught solfege, scales, key and time signatures, styles, and rhythm.

I continue to take lessons myself so that I am constantly learning my craft and can pass more knowledge onto you!

A bit about my teaching:
I prefer to teach beginners, but will certainly teach students at the intermediate level.

I promote a positive learning environment that is enjoyable, judgment-free, and productive.

I customize each lesson so that it best suits the goals, personality,
and abilities of every student.

My passion lies in opera, classical music, and pre-1960s Broadway, but i firmly believe that having good technique is beneficial and essential in any style of singing. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your musical goals!
