About Scott
Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Re
cording, and Live Sound for 16 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.

Very personable and eager to share his love of music. He’s not looking to teach you “his way” but meeting you where you’re at and helping you get to where you want to go, musically.

About Jacquie
As a young child, Jacquie began to show interest in both piano and voice. Coming from a musical family tree, her father began teaching her beginner piano as well as vocal harmony through original children compositions. She began her formal piano training at age 8 and continued to study for the next 5 years. At this time she also began writing music and recording her compositions in the family recording studio.

Around the age of 12, Jacquie began her training in classical voice. She is well versed in all styles from Opera to Pop and has the unique ability to train others to accomplish their musical goals. As a Coloratura Soprano she has starred in many productions and won prestigious vocal competitions throughout the USA and Europe. Jacquie is an accomplished Contemporary Songwriter and Recording Artist which has caught the eye of quit
e a few National Recording Companies. In the Summer of 2000 she toured throughout Tuscany, Italy as a featured soloist with SSMA with an Orchestral Ensemble. While in college she minored in Piano Performance and majored in Vocal Performance.

Jacquie began teaching at the age of 16 from her family's music store in beginner piano and voice where she learned the art of being an private instructor. Since then she has taught at other prestigious Music Schools and has trained students of all ages to the advanced level. She prides herself on the ability to be able to customize each lesson to accommodate both the student's wants and needs. She has trained many students who have gained successful entrance into LVPA Charter High School, Community Theaters and highly acclaimed competitions such as "American Idol." In 2005 she acquired a membership with NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing).

Come have FUN with Jacquie, she would love to have the opportunity to guide you or your children through a musical journey!

As a private instructor Jacquie believes that lessons can be both FUN and rewarding. She holds her students accountable for practicing and preparing for the next week's lesson by setting goals and providing techniques in order to be successful. Throughout the lesson she will give praise for the students accomplishments as well as give constructive feedback for improvement. She prefers to teach from the Alfred's Piano Library for Piano, recommends Theory, Harmony & Solfege, as well as materials for the students choice of Musical and Vocal style. It is also recommended to bring a notebook, binder and personal MP3 device in order to prepare for the next week's lesson. Within the first 3-6 months a student will have learned the beginning techniques for either piano or voice and have quite a few songs added to their repertoire.

Jacquie's studio has a comfortable seating area for parents to observe the lesson if desired. She also has a full size digital studio piano, recording studio, stereo, and other musical necessities to accommodate each and every lesson professionally.

All styles from Opera to POP!
Experience with teaching young children, special needs (physically/intellectually disabled), and people who are tone deaf.

Excellent Teaching Skills

The best vocal coach ever! Miss Jackie makes the students feel as though there is nothing that they cannot do and helps them achieve it. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of her field, goes above and beyond. She is very patient with the students and never lets them feel silly. I highly recommend her for vocal lessons.

About Nicholas
I am a second generation music teacher for piano and violin. I have been teaching for over 20 years as well as playing both instruments for about 30 years. I have an Associates in Music. Making lessons both fun and educational is what make my students successful in their instruments. My lessons are custom made to how the student learns, not cookie-cut. We also do bi-annual recitals in December and April to showcase the students' accomplishments.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are both fun and educational at the same time. I compromise with my students by having us each pick a piece to play on top of the usual learning pieces. My students play anything from Katy Perry to 80s music and rock ballads and in between. I use John Thompson and Fingerpower as well as a notespeller for piano and String Essentials for violin. Many of
my students can play with both hands after six months. We do recitals each year to showcase the past year's achievements in their pieces.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For either instrument I pick up all books and supplies ahead of the lesson. I have my own violin and music stand that I use to assist in teaching.

*** Specialties ***
John Thompson, Suzuki, popular music, Gospel, New Age, and anything in between

From the moment I had my phone interview with Paul, I knew he was the right instructor for my son. We met for a trial lesson and sure enough he was exactly what we were looking for. My 12 yr. old has just excelerated in his music reading skills that I could not teach him on my own having started him on the keyboard myself since he was seven but was not successful. Paul is not afraid to stretch him and communicate to him in a way that he pleasantly receives along with weaving music history teaching continuously throughout the lesson. Right out of the gate his technique was addressed and the foundation was set up front and my son has an obvious, beautiful, step above, touch. Very grateful!

About Anne-Marie
Hi, I'm Anne-Marie and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 25 years and whether the subject is English, Music, College Prep or Italian, I love helping students reach their goals. I work hard to leave my students enlightened, encouraged and empowered. I have high standards and I really like to challenge students to achieve their full potential, but I also try to make the process interesting, engaging and fun. I'm patient, easygoing and I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I always strive to get to know my students (and their needs) very well. Then I customize lessons according to need, aptitude and goals. One of the best parts of teaching for me is meeting and connecting with new people, and making a difference in their lives, so I really look forward to meeting and working with you!

About John
I started playing guitar from the time I was 11 years old and started getting paid for my first gigs with a band when I was 16. Shortly after that, I started teaching my first students when I was 17 years old. I was constantly busy, driving from school to peoples houses on weekdays while studying jazz guitar with an instructor, as well as with the paul green school of rock. On weekends I performed with paying gigs in live bands.

I have studied music and guitar at the Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusets, and Music Therapy, Jazz Guitar, and Psychology at Montclair State University/Cali School of Music. I currently continue to further my education, and am learning every day.

From my education background, I have a certification in Master Luthiery from the Summit School of Guitar Building and repair.

Besides working as
a guitar teacher, technician, and performer, I have also worked as an open mic host.

I am currently 26 years old and still performing, teaching, and working as a technician and Luthier on a regular day to day basis.

When teaching, I like to tailor each lesson to that particular student. I take great care in planning and expanding each encounter for both the student's short term and long term development in both life and music. I aim to offer: Music theory and the application of such to the guitar. While most teachers either focus on theory, or learning and playing songs on an instrument, I find it important to be able to use, as an example, applicable theories such as scales and key signatures along with a foundation to the songs we will be learning. These songs can either be of my own or the student's choosing. Essentially, by approaching lessons with a rational knowledge of music along with a hands on experience of playing an instrument, I can create a fun and successful experience for any student.

About Tim
Music has been part of my life ever since I was young. I grew up watching my parents recording music in a studio. I started playing drums when I was 3 years old. I couldn't reach the pedal so I just used my hands but kept a beat. I later learned how to play guitar, trumpet, and then piano.

I am a pastor of a church and I lead a band every week. So I am playing guitar every week on Sundays, and leading the band through the music. I have taught music to children and adults and it's a pleasure to know I was part of their life in this way!

I love having a good time and always make lessons fun. Learn more about my student is very important to me. This lets me know what drives and motivates them. I coach my students to help them realize how beautiful it is that they want to learn music. Music can change lives! So I make sure they learn it wel
l so they can change lives!

About Kateri
Hi! I have been playing flute for about 15 years, and clarinet for about 10. I have been teaching flute for over 12 years, and clarinet for 8. I was an elementary and middle school music teacher for 8 years, and taught beginner through intermediate instrumental music students on a variety of instruments. I have experience working with students from kindergarten through 12th grade. I have successfully helped students prepare for auditions into select ensembles and college music programs.

A flute lesson with me begins with a warm-up designed to help the student practice the skill he or she is struggling with the most. Some of my students begin with tone exercises, some begin with fingering or note-reading exercises. Then, the student will either work out of a lesson book such as the Rubank series or work on an etude. Advanced students wi
ll use the Trevor Wye lesson series and Taffanel and Gaubert fingering exercises. Then, the student will work on a solo piece. If the student belongs to a school or performing ensemble, we will work on that music as well. The lesson ends with a duet with me, sometimes sight-read and sometimes rehearsed in advance, to practice ensemble performance techniques. Lessons can be 30, 45 or 60 minutes and will be tailored to meet the student's individual needs.

My college flute playing experience included marching band, symphonic band and orchestra. I have played works for composers including Percy Grainger and Anton Dvorak. My post-college playing experience is mostly playing in pit orchestras for school or community theaters. I have played the following shows:
The Music Man (Flute)
Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (Flute)
Bye Bye Birdie (Flute)
Sound of Music (Flute and Piccolo) - I've done this one twice
Lil' Abner (Flute and Clarinet)
Fiddler on the Roof (Flute and Clarinet)
Into the Woods (Flute and Clarinet)
Will Rodgers Follies (Flute and Clarinet)
