Tim is a really nice and patient teacher. I did not have any drum experience before, but Tim arranges the first courses from basic rhythm practice, and also asked me to set up a long goal of playing drum cover of my favorite song. So the drum lesson is always interesting and compact, which makes me want to practice more in my spare time. I hope I could follow up the courses with more improvement and did better with his guidance.

About Nicholas
I've been teaching piano privately for about 5 years now. I love teaching piano to others and help develop a love of music. My approach is flexible and not of the cookie cutter variety meaning that I will try different methods to see what works for example, some students like to have a list of goals written down and others don't like that. A little about my musical background. At age 5 my mother forced me to take piano lessons, soon one year became two and so on until I reached my teens I started to love music. In my early teens I started taking piano seriously and began studying under a Russian conservatory teacher until graduating high school and studying at Berklee College of Music for a few years. Now I am in two bands, teach privately! I am looking to expand my number of students. If you have any questions about myself or are i
nterested in lessons please feel free to contact me.

Mr. Nick has been such a great find for us! He has taken my daughter from not having any piano experience to the point where she is able to even play some classical music pieces. He has been extremely accommodating with our schedule/ her schedule, as it becomes quite busy at times and difficult in trying to get our weekly lessons in.

I have never played piano before and decided to buy a "teach yourself" piano book for adults. I was doing ok, but at times I found myself confused with certain things and having trouble reading the bass clef. I decided it would be helpful to start taking lessons from a professional teacher to help with my challenges. I am so glad I made that decision!! I have only had 3 lessons so far with Amanda and l have already learned so much!! She has helped me read music and taught me great strategies that really make playing the piano more fun and easier to understand. I highly recommend her!!

About Adam
I have been passionate about music all of my life. I have been teaching guitar and piano for 10 years. I'm a doctoral student at Chestnut Hill College pursuing a degree in clinical psychology with plans to become a music therapist. I learned guitar and classical piano under 2 private teachers while pursuing my Psychology degree and music minor at Rutgers University in NJ.

Music was a way for me to find peace, structure, confidence, and an outlet for personal expression and creativity outside of my everyday life. I've grown as a person and a musician through music. I get excited when I see my students learn enjoy playing something new. I love music more than anything else and that love is something I try to bring out in my students. Once there is love for music, everything grows naturally. I teach to help my students find those streng
ths in themselves to live a fulfilling life through their instrument.

***Lesson Details***

We create daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to achieve.

Guitar: After 3 to 6 months of learning with me, you will have a basic knowledge of chords, how to read musical notation, strumming patterns and basic rhythms. Most importantly, you will have learned 3 or 4 songs of your choice so that you can experience the joy of expressing yourself through music.
To achieve these results, you must be willing to practice 20-30 minutes a day most days each week.

***Specialties***

I specialize in teaching students to learn to play by ear and improvise songs based on their tastes, style, and ability level. I also walk students through how to write and record semi-professional quality songs with drums, vocals, guitar, and piano. Music genres I cover are mainly Pop, Pop/Rock, Folk, Blues Rock, Classic Rock, Alternative, and Classical (piano only)

*** Studio Equipment ***

I provide a comfortable, quiet room with live instruments, and playback and recording equipment. I expect students to bring a guitar, books, sheet music, picks, and a tuner.
Instruments:
1. Taylor Acoustic Guitar
--picks, tuner, and capo
2. Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar

-- Classic Cry Baby Wah Effects Pedal
3. Casio PX-310 Weighted 88-Key Piano Keyboard

He gives you the tools you need to pursue any path you choose and to feel good about what you're achieving. Adam is very nonjudgmental and just loves music. Thanks to him I've come very far in a short amount of time.

About Gary
Dear Prospective Student,

My name is Gary. I started out playing the Bagpipe in High School as we were the "Highlanders" and had a bagpipe band as part of the marching band. I competed in solo competitions played my way to the top. As I will be 60 this year, I have been playing for 45 years and teaching full time for the last 20 years. I am very fortunate to be making a good living doing work that I love to do.

You need 3 things to learn the bagpipe. The first thing that you don't need is a set of bagpipes to get started. That purchase happens with most of my students between the 8th and the 12th month of lessons. My average student will spend between $1500 and $2000 on their pipes. Start saving now. The only thing that you need are a Practice Chanter, a book and 30 minutes with me once a week. I have the Practice Chant
ers and Books. Don't buy anything until we meet. To get started book 4 lessons with me. If you have any questions please feel free to email me through this website. I look forward to working with you.

About Rick
An initial look at Rick's teaching philosophy:

A common question raised by my prospective vocal students is “What makes a contemporary vocal instructor different from a traditional classical/Broadway instructor”?

The contemporary approach to singing lessons differs from classical in that there are more sub-divisions of music styles such as Pop, Rock, Country, R&B and Jazz. Additionally, with contemporary vocal lessons there are differences in tone production, rhythmic phrasing and embellishments.

Teaching people to sing is truly a wonderful experience for me. It is immensely gratifying to teach, and then in time see students grow as singers and exceed their original expectations for vocal study.
