I teach the very beginner to the very advanced levels. combining piano technique with music theory and some history and analysis of western music so the student will understand what he's doing and be able to interpret in the right style of the music he's playing.

About Berthe
My name is Berthe ( pronounced Bert). At the age of 4, I began taking
piano lessons. By age 8, I was performing for the first time at the
Assembly Hall of the American University of Beirut. In 1978, I attended
the Faculty of Music of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik/Lebanon,
where I completed a PhD. in music education and a higher diploma in
piano.
From 1982 to 2000, I taught piano, music theory, music education,
music appreciation, and the history of and analysis of Western music
at the University of the Holy Spirit of Kaslik (USEK), The University of St.
Joseph (USJ) and the Lebanese University (UL).
I recorded my first CD “Rehna Meshouar”, a collection of Lebanese
songs for children, intended to introduce music to kids. I took part in
many educational activities and devoted myself to the promotion of
musical educatio
n to the children. In 1995, I published my first book
“Do-Mi-Sol”, that focuses on a method specifically designed to teach kids
Solfege (oral theory and ear training).

From 1998 to 2001 I was in charge of training aspiring music teachers
at the Ecole Normale in piano, music education, psychology of music
education, and the philosophy of music education.
By the year 2000,I was appointed Director of Studies and the Academic
Secretary of the Music Faculty at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik.
During my tenure, I employed teachers, advised students, and
developed artistic and academic programs. It was my responsibility to
organize studies and examinations, as well as plan, execute, organize studies and examinations, as well as plan and execute
concerts, conventions, and competitions. I have lectured all over Europe and the Middle East, as well as published many articles concerning music and music education.
Since moving to Florida in 2007, I am a professor of piano instruction at St. Petersburg College. I also give private lessons in my studio. I have served as a judge several times at the Bay Ridge Piano Festival.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our musical journey has a smooth and relaxed progression, establishing enough command of the keyboard to allow each student to develop naturally. To make the piano a richer and more rewarding experience, I enjoy introducing a variety of musical styles, from popular favorites to timeless classical pieces, according to the student’s musical tastes.

I believe in a dynamic and responsive method of teaching. I see the student as an active participant in their own learning. Our lesson feels pleasant and joyful, so the student will always delight in playing the piano and creating music. Based on the student’s age and demands, I employ several methods of teaching that lead to the development of observation, concentration, creativity, self-confidence, and personal expression. I encourage and support my students regardless of specific talent, as we move toward an effective and beneficial musical experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: baby grand piano, additional seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical music to beginners and advanced students and follow the active method of teaching where the student is not just a receiver but participate in his own learning.

As an older student returning to piano after many years I needed someone with patience, but also someone who would be willing to push me to give my best. She is just the right combination for my needs. She not only knows her subject very well, but is able to transfer her knowledge and passion for music to her students. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Berthe if you truly want to enjoy learning to play piano with passion.

I have coached well-known musicians/celebrities, been an on-set tutor for feature films, and coached music hobbyists to have more fun! I’ve help many students prepare for auditions college/conservatory auditions with great success, as well as for auditions for TV shows/movies, record industry showcases and recording sessions.

Every great performer needs a great coach, I will help you become your best!
______________

I'm the vocalist, lead gui
tarist & songwriter for a well-known touring rock band with a worldwide fan base and nearly 4 million You Tube views. I graduated from New York University with Bachelor's of Music in Jazz guitar and trained with the most highly respected rock/pop vocal coaches in the world. In 2015, I signed a major label publishing deal with Fieldhouse Music/BMG played throughout Europe (and taught online lessons while away).

______________

Lesson Details

My students gain expertise in the following techniques and more...

Voice:

∙ intonation / resonance
∙ proper breathing & breath support
∙ diction
∙ vocal placement
∙ understanding chest / head voice
∙ bridging registers & 'the high note'
∙ vowels and modification techniques
∙ mixed voice
∙ edgy/bright
∙ clean/distorted
∙ vibrato
∙ screaming
∙ rhythmic singing
∙ vocal health/maintaining your voice
∙ touring, recording, performing
∙ writing songs/melodies/lyrics to suit your vocal strengths
and personality

Lead and Rhythm Guitar:

I've developed a step-by-step approach to learning to solo and improvise.
Using simple, "guitarist-friendly” techniques you will quickly learn and begin to apply major/minor scales/modes, blues/pentatonic scales and “licks.” You will learn triads, arpeggios, interval studies, and extensions and how to use them to create interesting and melodic solos. With my line development/phrasing techniques, you will have your own library of “licks” that will help you navigate both simple and sophisticated harmonic progressions. I will help you to become a become a well-rounded, three-dimensional guitarist with a unique voice!

A few of techniques I teach:

∙ triads / arpeggios
∙ strumming
∙ alternate/sweep picking
∙ tremolo picking
∙ hybrid picking
∙ scales/modes
∙ slide guitar
∙ hammer on/pull off
∙ (up to 8 finger) tapping
∙ bending / double stops / unison bends
∙ whammy bar techniques
∙ diagonal scales,
∙ arpeggios & note groupings
∙ 3 and 4 finger per string scales
∙ fingerstyle
∙ Jazz scales, chords including
4 note open/closed voicing
7th, 9th, 11th, 13th chords
∙ chord melodies
∙ rhythm and grooves of various styles

Bass Guitar:

Right hand:
∙ finger style, pick
∙ slapping/popping
∙ groove, rhythms and playing time
∙ time signatures, walking bass lines,
∙ arpeggios, double stops,
∙ chords & improvising
∙ writing bass lines.

All of my students learn:

Sight reading (standard notation/tablature)
∙ music theory & ear training
∙ rhythm / timing (including reading rhythms)
∙ composition/songwriting

We will focus 1/2 of the lesson on repertoire and 1/2 the lesson on technique. Many of my students text/email me a few days prior to our scheduled lesson with a song selection for the week. I focus our lesson's technical study with the song in mind. It has proven to be very effective and makes the technique and theory are less "boring."

Studio Equipment
I have (7) guitars: including (4) electric, (2) acoustic/electric, & (3) electric bass
(2) tube guitar amplifiers, and various guitar effects pedals.

(1) full-size 88-key MIDI keyboard, (1) 61-key USB keyboard controller, and (1) Arturia MINILAB MIDI controller.

Also, I have an assortment of industry standard dynamic & condenser microphones for live performance and recording applications.

DAW recording software (Pro Tools 12.x, Logic 10.x, Ableton Live)
software synthesizers by Arturia, Fabfilter, Native Instruments, Spectrasonics, Steven Slate, Toontrack and more. I use plugin effects by Izotope, Fabfilter, Plugin Alliance and Universal Audio and Waves for many of my lessons and recording projects.

Travel Equipment
I can provide a guitar, videos, music recording, music workbooks and everything else a student may need. Students are only expected to bring a desire to learn. :)

Specialties

I am a performer with a ton of touring/stage experience, a composer who understands the art of writing and a producer who is fluent in the latest recording technology. In addition to technical studies, my students receive performance coaching/career development. I will help you to find your unique voice, a polished and distinct sound, and your true personality as an artist. I am 100% committed to making you a success!

I will ignite a new, or recharge/rekindle your passion for music, and to sing/play the music you love a lot better!

Eric is a great singing instructor! He's doing a great job tailoring the lessons to fit my skill level and goals as an amateur learning basic technique. For the first few lessons, he took the time to understand my voice, taught me exercises to learn how to better control my voice, and helped me practice singing some of my favorite (pop) songs. I feel like my voice and understanding of singing has improved significantly in even just a handful of lessons. Eric is also very patient and encouraging, which has given me a lot more confidence in enjoying my hobby to its fullest extent!

I come from a choral, liturgical signing background, so he's helped me with placement, chest voice, and pronunciation for pop, rock, country, and other genres. I highly recommend!

I've been teaching Piano for 10 years now. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to identify the notes of the piano and be able to play many easy songs. And as time goes on you'll be able to play more complex songs with both hands. I specialize in Classical, Church and Broadway, typically use Faber and Faber for kids and Alfred books for adults. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Hi! First, I will ask for your experience not only with piano but with music. We will work on posture, playing technique and reading. Because of my tutelage, my default material for beginners is Suzuki Book 1 which you can either purchase yourself or I can bring one for you. If you have other music material that you would like to work on, I am happy to use that instead. Then I will assign you homework which you will need to practice on your own in preparation for then next lesson.

About Charlotte
Hi! I am currently a student at University of San Francisco studying Biology and Neuroscience. I began studying piano when I was 4 through the Suzuki method and started teaching when I moved to San Francisco to start school. I am dedicated to the Suzuki method and believe in it. When I take on a student, I want them to accomplish their goals but will require that they practice and prepare for each lesson. With practicing done, we can work on and hone your skill together and (I hope) develop a love for music and an instrument I hold very dear.

And now, I am teaching at Cary School of Music, I have rich experiences to teach students. I always create different teaching and practicing strategies/methods for different students. I usually combine piano/ flute lessons with music theory, I teach music theory as well as piano and flute lessons while we're having lessons.

As a professional performer, I know how to train my students into a music professionals. However, my students will not feel much pressure to be a music professionals, because I want y students to learn it happily with a high music level standards.

I was educated in music school during middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate school (New York University). I also took many classes, which are related to woodwind teaching in college. I've started my teaching career since 2011, I am good at providing different teaching methods for different students. It would be really fun to work with me, you will definitely like playing flute and piano.

I worked in an orphanage when I was a sophomore. I worked as a general music tutor, some of them were kids who needed special cares, and I did a successful work there. I taught them how to play with music.

And I have organized four solo flute concerts and other different kinds of
chamber and orchestra concerts. You will definitely learn more than you thought form me!!

Having played piano from early childhood and trained by experts, it is my hope that you will benefit greatly from lessons with me. From basic theory to scales and chords to elaborate music pieces to playing by ear, your lessons will be very productive and effective. Depending on your level, we may be using interactive and informative method books to enhance our music experience together!

About Eugene
Greetings!

I love performing music, and it is my passion to teach others the same. I consider music to be a vibrant language rather than a mere set of notes. And it would be my distinct pleasure to journey through music together with you!

I had been introduced to music basically from birth. Both my parents were active performing musicians at the time as well as deeply immersed into music production. My first piano scale was taught by my father at the age of 3, and the first little tune I could play was taught by my mother when I was 6. Growing up, having various musicians in our home was a usual sight. Surrounded by so many talents, I played piano by ear and improvised more and more. I began formal piano training at the age of 7. Since then, both piano and theory have gone hand in hand with me.

At age 14, I began to seriously stu
dy conducting and voice. Since then, this has always been part of my passion. I have had great experiences learning from great music professors from prominent cities in other countries. I have also been very fortunate to have hands-on teaching experiences at various musical festivals and seminars.

With his extensive background and experience in music, Eugene was able to show me that there is more to music than just notes. He is an excellent communicator and an exceptional teacher. I say that because he breaks apart the complexity of music and teaches it peice by peice, making it easy to play difficult passages. Overall, he added an entirely new dimension to music for me.
I recommend Eugene to those looking to accelerate their piano technique or anyone interested in advancing in their piano performance. Eugene has a strong and contagious passion for music.

When working with a student, I strive to develop the lesson around them. I teach at the pace they learn. I accommodate for busy schedules and assign only the necessary amount of homework for each student. I try to tailor my lessons to suit the needs of each individual student.

About Benjamin
I have been playing the piano for 11 years. I started when I was 6 and have been taking private lessons ever since. I received classical training, but I enjoy all types of music. I can also play the organ, french horn, trumpet, guitar, and banjo. I have been teaching local students for almost 5 years and love getting to share my passion for music with others. Along with teaching piano, I am employed as a church musician.

Usually, I teach the James Bastien Piano for the Young Beginner to children and Bastien Piano for Adults to teenagers and adults. I have had a handful of students that preferred to learn by ear and I do not mind teaching that way either. I never use a "one size fits all" approach. Instead, I try to structure the lesson and the curriculum around the individual student.

I teach students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical piano skills. I typically use Bastien books, and also incorporate sheet music. My lessons are challenging, and fun!

About Tammy
Hi, I’m Tammy!
I’m good at forming strong personal connections, and my desire is for students to enjoy and excel at playing the piano. I've been teaching private lessons out of my home and at a local music shop, and have loved helping my students learn to play and read music, prepare for recitals, and prepare for solos and accompaniment at their schools and churches. I’m patient, encouraging, and like to see students really understand music and grow in their ability to play. My lessons are challenging, but fun. I like students to choose some of their own music and participate in choosing their direction and pace. I find that playing songs they know and like helps to facilitate at home practice and faster learning, as students enjoy their practice time! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I have 13 years of experie
nce taking piano lessons. During that time I played with my church’s music team, accompanied a choir, and became an experienced soloist and accompanist. I have experience accompanying singers, choirs, violinists, and bands. I additionally competed in music competitions and took home the highest award for piano in the state of Wisconsin, and accompanied several singers who also received highest awards. I was accepted into the University of Wisconsin Madison School of Music, but after my first year chose to shift my focus to the sciences, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Biology, followed by attending Northwestern Health Sciences University where I received a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. After a successful career in chiropractic, I sold my practice to become a homemaker and tutor, and am excited to once again return to my first love, music.
