About Chris
Hi! Welcome to Take Lessons! Let me start off by saying that I love to teach singing and acting!! I specialize in teaching students from teens to adults but love teaching younger children as well. There is no better feeling than to see a student grow and better themselves artistically and personally. In addition to teaching singing and acting for over 10 years I have performed in numerous Broadway shows, West End shows, and National Tours throughout the US and Canada. I am presently a working actor. I received my education from the University of Michigan's School of Music. Whether you are a first time singer/actor or an established professional I love students who are excited to absorb new ideas and attempt to grow in ways they hadn't thought possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are unique to each individual. I tend to cater
my lesson plan to each students goals, experience, and age. I believe that there is no one way to teach or one way to learn. Trying numerous exercises and coming up with creative ways to help students assimilate new material and concepts is a core part of my teaching philosophy. Above all learning should be fun and exciting. I will do my best to create a safe open atmosphere where a student of any age level can succeed in achieving their learning goals.

Musical Theatre is my passion and my forte, however in order to teach singing or acting proper technique must be established.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal.

About Ross
My name is Ross Heastings. I am a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I have been teaching privately for over 10 years. My success as a teacher is attributed to my expertise in music, music instruction, and my social skills. I am a firm believer that a great guitar player or pianist does not necessarily mean they are a great teacher. Teaching is a passion. It is my goal to continue to evolve as an instructor and offer new was and strategies specific to the students' needs.

My first guitar lesson was great. I had started learning a few things on my own from books & videos. I quickly realized that there was no structure & I was developing bad habits. That all changed with Ross' instruction. He knows his stuff but most importantly he is a good teacher. Not the nightmares you had in school! Ross has qualities that you don't find with many people today. He made me feel comfortable and more confident. Now to pat myself on the back, I made a wise decision.

About Bennie
Hello. If you want to learn to play and understand piano and music,... I can help you!

I teach, play and compose a variety of styles, such as pop, rock, blues, classical, jazz, and new-age music. I can show you how to listen to a recording and to play it without written music. Also, I can teach you to read a lead sheet/fake book/chord chart or the grand staff for piano. I can teach you simple or fancy chords/scales/songs.

I have played keyboard and or piano for the "Diana Ross Show Review", "Beatlemania" and various notable restaurant/clubs in Pittsburgh, Pa. I studied music at Duquesne University and studied privately with Frank Cunimondo for Jazz improvisation.

I enjoy helping students learn to play the piano and understand music. We will have a good time.

I can teach you the fundamentals and beyond and help you pursue all
of your musical goals.

Please listen to my CD, "Spaces With Time", on the "Bandcamp.com" website. I hope you enjoy it.

Ready to play? Let's schedule some lessons together soon.

I couldn't ask for a better teacher. Bennie has the talent and experience to help anyone trying to either learn from scratch or improve their current skill level. Due to the fact that I travel quite a bit with my business I used the holiday season to get a refresher course and Bennie was the right teacher for this. He gave me more in 5 lessons then I could have gotten from anyone else if I had 20 lessons. Unfortunately, I travel a lot for my business and I can't commit to a regular lesson schedule.

About Diane
DIANE'S PIANO LESSONS. I'm a trained classical pianist/former band musician who played at age 2-1/2. Studied classical piano age 6-18, played in bands 20 years and still fill in with bands occasionally and play solo piano for wedding, parties, banquets, etc. I use Schaum course books with Schaum or Alfred's Classical until advanced enough to play Sonatina's/Concerto's, etc. In the summer, I let the students pick their preferred music. In addition to basic books(Schaum, Scale, Fingerpower,chords, Notespeller, Classical, if the student is interested, in about 2 years I add the extra "outside of the box things" i.e., playing by ear, writing music, transposing, developing your own style. Lessons geared towards the big picture of students being well-versed in whatever they decide to do with their music and bringing each student to their "Pe
rsonal Best." I also put the assigned lesson (last 5 min of lesson) on tape/iPhone so students have an audio or visual of assignments. I love doing this & feel blessed to be able to do what I love for a living.

Diane is an awesome teacher! So glad to have found her! She taught all three of my children for years, and they all have a love and appreciation for the piano. Diane taught them what my piano teachers did not teach me! They can transcribe music, they know all the chord progressions, and she even had them writing their own pieces :) I still want to take some lessons myself when i retire! Diane also taught my ADHD son when no other teacher we tried would! Patient, kind, and a great teacher! I highly recommend her! Thanks, Diane!

About Ulises
I have played trumpet for 15 years, and taught lessons for 5 years. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in trumpet performance from Idaho State University, and a Master's Degree in trumpet performance from the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.

As a student who has overcome tension and anxiety, I can pinpoint any causes for these problems that a student may have. I am very understanding and I know that each student learns differently. I believe that music making should be fun, and I can help your playing be effortless so you can enjoy every moment of playing the instrument.

I have been contracted by several orchestras in Idaho in the past, and I have played professionally for memorial day services. I have played in brass quintets and am familiar with playing the correct style in a jazz setting.

Recently, I self produced
my own EP.

About Sally
Greetings! I'm an enthusiastic teacher who makes learning fun, as evidenced by the fact that most of my students stay for years! I have taught over 150 students from six school districts in the South and West Hills of Pittsburgh, along with students from Bishop Canevin, OLSH, and CAPA.

I build on a solid foundation of good technique to help you achieve your vocal goals. I work to instill a love of music and provide compassion for the whole person, while working to bring out the very best that your voice can be!

I offer the study of musical theory as an option for interested students. Music theory is highly recommended for any student who wishes to major in music, or music-related fields of study, such as music therapy.

I have a varied background, musically speaking. I started in community theater at age 12, and entered coll
ege with one of my majors being Theater. I switched to Vocal Performance and studied opera with Claudia Pinza.

I have always used my music in my church. For most of my adult life, this has meant a contemporary Christian music setting, being a worship leader for our church's worship team, directing and fronting a full band. I can help to develop you as an effective worship leader, in addition to being a solid worship vocalist.

My former students include professional actors, opera students, and a Best Actor and Best Actress award winner at the Gene Kelly Awards for High School Musical Theater.

And parents, you can rest easier, knowing that I have my PA Background Clearances. I teach in my in-home studio. The studio has glass doors, so your student is always visible. Parents may sit in on any lesson; they're also welcome to wait in my living room, right outside the studio room. My home is conveniently located 10 minutes from Waterdam Plaza on Route 19, in McMurray, PA.

From learning how to sing healthily to furthing my vocal capabilities, Sally made it a wonderful and fun experience. I couldn’t be more thankful for the time I spent in her studio and would recommend her to anyone who wants to reach new levels in the vocal world.
