About Jonathan
I started my musical education in a children'€™s choir at age 6.
When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin
at 9 and trombone at 10. After studying numerous instruments I am now proficient on the piano, electric/acoustic bass, and guitar. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean'€™s list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I started my teaching career at Milestones in Music, a local studio, as an independent contractor, and was able to gain valuable experience, and through my membership in the National Association for Music Education(NAfME) I was able to fine tune my curriculum. I am a former student member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to
work with, and learn from a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most prestigious
award in music, the Grammy). I am the band leader at my church Montco Bible Fellowship. I have experience as an audio tech in the studio and for a live stage, and have consulted for organizations looking to setup a sound system/studio. I enjoy recording my own music in my home studio, and learning to play new instruments. I hope to pass my love for music to the next generation!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor... as you will find out! I understand that not everyone learns at the same rate; however, I am a perfectionist and don't allow students to advance until they have learned a particular skill. I would rather a student take forever to learn a song, and practice it with good technique, than be able to play it right away with poor form and posture! I reinforce the value of working toward goals and celebrate with students when they reach them.  I understand that every student has different interests and reasons for wanting to learn an instrument... I try to focus on the areas that are of interest to the student, because a student who is enjoying themself will excel.  This does not mean that the subjects and skills that are not of interest will not be taught, because I also believe in being a well-rounded musician. I teach both jazz (theory/improvisation) and classical (composed) music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is currently not optimal for teaching... I hope to change this soon!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books and other learning materials, but expect to be reimbursed. I expect the student to have their own instrument/equipment. Piano students are required to have a piano or a keyboard with 88 weighted keys (hammer-action), a piano bench and a pedal. Guitar/bass students must have an acoustic/electric guitar/bass with a strap or footstool, pick, and cable and amplifier if applicable! Digital audio students must have their own computer, Digital Audio workstation (software), digital audio interface, speakers/headphones and midi controller. ALL STUDENTS MUST PROVIDE A NOTEBOOK (college rule or staff)!!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and jazz piano! I am more than proficient at most production software including: reason, fl studio, ableton live... and other editing software such as sony sound forge, audacity, etc...

We've been really happy with Jonathan so far. He's been teaching my son for a few months and I love that he teaches both classical and jazz/improv in tandem. I was taught classically only and I see so much value in this side by side approach- best of both worlds. He's patient but he also has high standards. Glad we found him!

I've been taking lessons from Mr.Connors for quite a while now, and I must say that he is the greatest guitar teacher I have ever had. A year ago, before I met Mr.Connors, I used to be a the worst guitar player ever. I used to spend hours over hours in front of the computer screen trying to learn a song or some music theory, but I never seemed to get any better. I still continued to try, though, because I had a particular interest towards the instrument, but I couldn't shake off the feeling that i wasn't going in the right direction and that I needed someone to guide me. Mr.Connors was just the person I was looking for. He identified my skill level immediately and steered me in the right direction. Each song I was taught had a unique skill that I needed to master to make it through to the end. This made me realise the importance of the subtleties involved in playing guitar.

I just recently dived into music theory and sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of theory that I have to learn, but Mr.Connors knows how to light my spirits up. Watching him play, I realise that I can take my guitar to the next level with just a little more effort. This motivates me to spend more time on the instrument, and I got to say I have never been more interested in the guitar than I am right now.

Overall Mr.Connors is nice, polite, patient, funny, and an exemplary guitar player and teacher (If that wasn't obvious already). Looking back I realise I've come a long way from a year ago, and I have Mr.Connors to thank for everything. I know I'm going to keep learning from him as long as i still want to get better.

I have played guitar for about 8 years. I teach technique and theory, while also having fun with students' interests. You will learn all notes, the majority of chords, different play styles, as well as the application of the theory and techniques.

About Matthew
I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university.

I wish to help others make music an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine.

*** Lesson Details ***
For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my methods and use a scaffolding technique. Going out of
your comfort zone helps learning and development.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fender Jazz Bass
Music Man SUB Bass
Ampeg amp

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a logbook or notebook, staff paper, pencils, their instruments if applicable, and a metronome.

I bring extra staff paper and pencils just in case

If you want to get started with guitar, I'm the one you've been looking for. I'll get you started with basic theory, then I'll gradually move on to more advanced topics. I have a good background in this subject. I've actually taught this subject to a student who already had seven years experience; he didn't know how to put chords together in the right way. Guitar can be fun!

About Larry
Are you looking for a great tutor? I'm the one you've been looking for.

I've had 3 years of tutoring experience in the following subjects:

* Computers (Java, general topics, C++, C, HTML, application programming, and others)
* Math (from elementary math to algebra)
* Piano (from basic to more advanced)
* Guitar (from theory to more advanced)

I've had favorable reviews from my former clients, and I'll have competitive low rates as well. What are you waiting for?

I am a beginner, but because of Larry's different method of teaching music theory, it was easy for me to understand the fundamentals of music scales and consequently the origin of the chords and how they are formed. Larry goes the extra mile to make sure that you capture and understand the concepts.
Thank you!

Students will learn basic chords, progressions, and scales on guitar while building a repertoire of songs that we'll choose together. During lessons students will be encouraged to sing if they'd like to learn to sing and play simultaneously. Students will also learn note reading and chord reading through written exercises. Intermediate students will learn basic improvisation and accompaniment skills.

About Collin
My name is Collin. I have been teaching private lessons since 2013 and have helped young students learn to read music and to sing and play simultaneously. I have also taught accomplished musicians to play electric bass, my primary instrument.
I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Professional Music with a concentrate in Music Education and Performance at Berklee College of Music in 2014. I currently play in rock bands Ellen Siberian Tiger and Mother Moses, and with Boston-based Bangla pop singer Prithwiraj Choudhury.
I have had experience playing a wide variety of styles of music including rock, folk, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, jazz, funk, blues, and R&B. I teach beginner level piano, trombone and drums, beginner to intermediate guitar, vocals and upright bass, and all levels of electric bass playing. I like to connect my students so tha
t they have experience playing with other musicians and other styles of music.

Profile_97404_pi_DSC06386
Philadelphia, PA
View Full Profile

I have spent the past 12 years of my life dedicated to the guitar. While obtaining my Bachelor's degree in Guitar performance at Oberlin Conservatory I was employed by the conservatory's secondary lessons department. This studio featured a diverse mix of college students, adults, and children. In addition I am Suzuki method certified and I was a summer instructor at the Amherst School of Guitar in Buffalo, NY. I have experience working with children from as young as 5 to as old as 65.

About Lenny
Studying music has tremendous benefits including: discipline, self confidence, problem solving, and stronger connections in the brain! Understanding music can give you new perspectives on how to look at the world. If you have felt the power of music then you owe it to yourself to understand and harness what is already a part of you. OWN IT!

While studying with me we will work on many facets of music including technique, sight reading, critical listening, music theory, improvisation, and how to apply these skills to a piece of music to truly express yourself. My goal is to instill a deep understanding of music to my students while letting their individual sensibilities show.

STYLES: I can teach all styles of American music (i.e Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, R&B etc.) as well as classical and fingerstyle.
I have a degree in classical
guitar and have performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra as well as done concerts in the USA, Italy, and the UK.
I have experience playing in many different bands in many styles including: Rock, Reggae, African, Blues, and Jazz groups.

SUZUKI METHOD: I am trained and certified in the Suzuki Guitar Method and spent 3 years teaching Suzuki in studio with children as young as 5. This involves a significant parent-teacher-student commitment and regularly yields impressive results.

ON TALENT: I agree with Shin-ichi Suzuki that talent is irrelevant and a myth. I believe that the potential of all my students are the same but they come to me with various starting skills levels and all learn at a very different pace. I believe that the myth of “talent” really just means that the individual has had a long exposure to music. This is why I emphasize critical listening in my lessons. If you have a large knowledge of music and sounds in your head it makes it easier to make connections and better assess your ideas.

Lenny was my daughter's first instructor for guitar, she had two years of piano - she was not as motivated with the piano instructor as with Lenny. He took his time with any questions she had, he was totally patient with her, he really has a understanding of music and is able to explain it in a way with minimal if no confusion. No matter what kind of day he may have had at school he remained absolutely consistent from week to week with how he taught during the lesson. His focus was where it should be, even when other family members needed to take my daughter he was undaunted yet caring. I would highly recommend this young man hands down. I told him personally through emails how thankful and blessed we were with him as a teacher. I have other children, older, and I have had them through various teachers with various instruments and Lenny is definitely a 5-Star.

Equipped with over 6 years of teaching experience, I am excited to help you along your musical journey. I believe in teaching music in a fun way both from a theory side and practical side. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate student, we will take a step by step approach to learning and building upon previous lessons. Your ear is one of your greatest tools as a guitarist and we will work on that as well. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Andre
I am a guitarist with over 15 years of playing experience and a lover of music. I have taken private music theory lessons as well as classes in undergrad. I believe music is one of the most beautiful things in the world. The element of personal expression makes it that much more meaningful.

I have learned over the years teaching causes you to truly know your craft in order to convey it to someone else. I enjoy sharing that joy of music with others looking to embark on their own musical journey. I have devised a system for teaching that has proven to be effective among my students.

I start off by gauging what the student knows musically to see what we need to focus on. After that, we work through principles and songs in a systematic and fun way. I give homework and material to work on every lesson to reinforce the work of the day.
