Upright Bass is my main instrument. It's what I love and I want to share that love with anyone who wants to play the bass. The lessons are your time as a student. I am here for you and I am here to guide you on the path to success. What I think is really important is always being goal oriented. We will take what you want to do with the bass and plan how we will get there using technique exercises, solo pieces, and fun stuff you choose to learn.

About Michael

I am a professional freelance upright bassist in the Philadelphia Metro Area. I came to the Classical Bass when I was 17 and fell in love with it! In my experience, I have learned that there are two very important things: Musicality and Flexibility. The music always comes first! It's what I do

As a professional pop/rock singer songwriter and musical theatre performer, I love infusing my teaching with techniques, warm ups, and insights that I've learned over the past few years (and even use myself). I have a BFA in Musical Theatre and have taught beginning piano and voice for the past year. Whether you're interested in singing pop, rock, standards, or Broadway, I will tailor lessons to meet your needs. Shoot me a message if you're interested, and we can set something up!

My daughter enjoyed working with Lia. She was patient, fun and helped build my daughter's confidence when she made mistakes and needed to try again. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!
Sue
LIa is the right fit for my high school student. My daughter has been taking classic piano lessons since 4 years old. She has been looking for an instructor who will allow her to develop her creative side.

Lia customizes her lessons and has reignited my daughters love of piano.

Thanks, Lia.
Tony
Both of my daughters love to sing. We signed up for lessons so they could learn their favorite pop songs; one of my daughters also took piano. They've learned how to hit notes easier and how to properly warm up; Lia is great at finding fun ways to keep them engaged while also still learning. The combination of piano and voice for my youngest has been really valuable. I highly recommend Lia for your lessons!

Students will learn classical vocal technique, with repertoire focused on arias from operas and oratorios. Students will also learn basic sight reading and musicianship skills. I teach a holistic approach to music, which means my students will learn the entire system of their instrument through vocal exercises, ear training, diction, song, and performance techniques. Each student is unique, and I adapt my curriculum to meet their needs and achieve their goals. As an active performer, I encourage and facilitate students performing outside of private lessons. This includes studio recitals and the opportunity to compete in NATS competitions for all students who fulfill the requirements.

About Kayla

As an experienced private voice teacher, Ms. G enjoys guiding students of diverse backgrounds to meet their individual goals. She uses voice science, motor learning, and musical training to guide students to improved vocal function and artistry. Her graduated high school students have matriculated

I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Kayla for a year, before moving for work. I started voice lessons because, quite frankly, I was tired of being embarrassed to sing. Within one month I was sounding better than I would have thought possible. Kayla is an exceptional teacher and in addition to the fun of learning how to tap into my own instrument, it’s also quite engaging to see her mastery of teaching. She can easily explain concepts several different ways in all the learning style until the concept clicks for you. Her passion for her students’ progress is infectious. She is also genuinely interested fostering an ability to be a self-sufficient musician. She periodically spends time teaching you how to critique yourself and how to find new pieces without assistance. She is also always pointing out other opportunities and avenues to enjoy singing and to seek improvements. She is great at keeping lessons at your ability level. I always left lessons feeling that I had learned all the material I could have possibly learned in the allotted time. Furthermore, she organizes her lessons in such a way that your practice for the following week naturally follows and she always closes lesson by explicitly stating the goals that you should reach for in your subsequent practice. Thanks to her coaching, I learned that good singing isn’t about talent, it’s about technique and technique can always be learned. I learned to be comfortable with my voice. I really like the way I sound (which had never been true before), and even when I mess up singing something beyond my skill level, I’m still comfortable with myself because I know that it’s just a technique I haven’t mastered yet and the only thing that’s keeping me from mastering it is instruction and practice. I would give Kayla my highest recommendation to anyone who asked.

This is more or less an update of my old review.
Kayla obviously cares about her students. She drives me to do my best, and reminds me that its okay to make mistakes. She covers all aspects of performing, from auditions to the various insecurities of performers. She also teaches you how to care for your instrument. Kayla is very encouraging and understanding. She is also very enthusiastic about her work.

These are the reasons I sing her praises to anyone looking for a voice teacher.

About Eli

Hi future students! I’m Eli. I know how tough it is to teach yourself an instrument, because I struggled with it for years and years. One of my biggest issues was learning how to practice, so if that’s something you struggle with, I can certainly help you develop a routine to which you would follow

After his first session, my son (10 years old) said Eli was, "really nice." They reviewed a lot, Eli asked a lot of questions about previous experiences and and listened to him play. Sounds like it was a packed session but not overwhelming.

thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eli was great. He was very patient with my son during his very first music lesson. Eli made the lesson fun and enjoyable. My son enjoyed the lesson very much and is looking forward to his next one.

Jennifer is great with my high-energy seven-year-old. She's very patient and she is able to make him engage. She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week.

5 Best Drum Books for Beginners

Learning to play the drums is not something you can do in a single day or a single lesson. Drumming is an art form, in many ways, and it takes time to develop. Beginner drummers can get frustrated easily, but stick with it and you’ll be playing the drums (and playing them well!) sooner than you might think. While private lessons are the quickest most efficient way to learn to play, you’ll also need to practice at home to really develop your talent. Combine this with the right drum books, and …
