I’ll make certain you're working with the right guitar for you and your size, style etc.. I'll lower the action if the strings are too far from the neck, which is the case 99.9% of the time with nearly all guitars (making it hard to fret a note or barre.) We can even spend 20 min of the lesson changing the strings to one's more well-suited and this will be a necessary skill you will learn.
You will be given a step-by-step approach to learning the instrument as a whole, yet in a slow, considerate to your learning pace-fashion..You'll get into it.
I'll be giving you different warm-ups and exercises which induce strength & flexibility & knowledge & technique.
Learning songs or working on developing your own song ideas
Scales, modes, shapes and patterns and how to use them to improvise
How to play with soul and not sound sterile or mechanical.

Every guitarist must know the blues, It's the simplest yet often hardest genres to play! I’ll break it down for you!

I've been teaching viola for over 27 years and my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, community orchestras, attend PMEA and ASTA events or go to college as a music major. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to improve your playing skills and as time goes on you'll be able to play at a more advanced level. I specialize in Traditional Classical violin, typically use Essential Elements 2000, Samuel Applebaum methods, Suzuki methods, Barbara Barber books and traditional scales and etude books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Susanna was very easy to understand, very kind and patient to explain the basics of proper cello placement, bow hold and how to bow properly. I highly recommend her as a cello instructor!

Susanna is an excellent instructor! I've been with her for a year as an adult beginner and learned a great deal. She is patient and supportive -- exactly what you need in an instructor. She also has a great sense of humor lined with kindness, which helps when you create some truly tragic notes on your violin.

Colleen B.
I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly
Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.
