Jerry Y.

Cranbury, NJ

About Jerry

I've been playing and loving music for well more than half a century, now. I got started in second grade when my grandpa brought home a little violin one day, and I've been at it ever since. I was fortunate to take lessons for more than ten years with Carita Page, a teacher who was very warm, encouraging, and caring. I do my best to pass that on to my students in addition to the technique of playing and the theory of music, fascinating as those are.

I feel that playing in groups is very valuable experience for students and gives you a side of music that private lessons alone cannot. I
encourage students to look for opportunities to do that. To help provide those opportunities I organized the Cranbury Scout Band, one of very few continuously-operating Scout bands in the country, which I have directed for more that ten years now. I've also been on the staff of several Jamboree Scout bands.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is a different individual and learns in different ways. I try to make lessons as interesting and as useful to each student as I can, and include different things based on your interests and capabilities. Most students find duets are fun, so I include them often - both duets with the same instrument you are studying and duets with other instruments as well so you can learn the sound of such combinations. I encourage you to "play with your ears" as well as your fingers, to become a critical listener to your own performance and to decide whether you sound the way you want to sound.

I encourage students to try different things to become a more rounded musician. This might be something closely related - a flutist trying the piccolo or a clarinetist trying the bass clarinet. Or, it might be further afield - a flutist trying the guitar or a violinist learning movable Do and solfeggio singing. Every aspect of music is good to know.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My music studio is in a separate building - actually a renovated barn about two centuries old. The studio contains a piano and all the other instruments that I teach, and is roomy enough not only for private lessons but for musical groups up to about ten. I have many other resources there as well, including files of music, a small music library, and a computer that we can use for many purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need their instruments, music, and stands.
I bring my own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Classical,
Marching Band,
Ethnic (such as Jewish, Irish)

Julie G.

Seaside Park, NJ

About Julie

I have more than 10 years experience teaching private piano lesson to all levels, beginner to advanced. I have taught all ages and I have experience with special needs students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Learning to play the piano should be fun but it should be taken seriously to achieve the best results. I strive to instill a passion for music in all my students and teach them how to make music a part of their everyday life. I believe that all students learn differently and I try to plan lessons around each students individual interests and goals, while including the exercises and lessons t
hat I know are needed to build knowledge and strength. I am using Bastien books, Piano Adventures and Hanon exercises as well as pop, Broadway, rock, etc.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must have a piano or keyboard and lesson books. They may purchase the lesson books or I will purchase them and they may reimburse me. I will provide any special music arrangements needed and theory homework.

Zach M.

Marlboro, NJ

About Zach

As a teaching artist, my goal is to reinforce a healthy structure to your voice while expanding your capacities as an actor and performer by letting the complete singing actor emerge. I wish for my work in the studio to be accessible even when you are practicing on your own. I hope to empower each student to become self-sufficient on a personal level, understanding that each individual grows from different methods to find that perfect balance of artistic and technical instruction.

I am fresh off of the Anything Goes National Tour as the tenor in the quartet and a primary dancer. Before thi
s, I was a performer in Pittsburgh's prestigious theatre, The Pittsburgh CLO, appearing most recently in their production of The Wedding Singer and previously as The Production Tenor in Singin’ in the Rain and Garvin in Footloose. Other theatre credits include multiple shows at Music Theatre of Wichita, West Virginia Public Theatre and The Connecticut Repertory Theatre, all of which have taught me what it takes to become a successful musical theatre performer in this era.

I love teaching all students, but in particular high school students who are aspiring to attend college as a musical theatre major, non-theatre majors who are new to singing and want a stronger technical background, or actors who are new to the musical theatre scene and are looking to take their talent to the next level. I have a strong knowledge of repertoire ranging from contemporary musical theatre to golden age to opera/operetta. I have performed in musicals, operettas, plays, and have started my own collegiate a cappella group, The Statesmen. At Penn State, I was trained to not only teach musical theatre repertoire, but to include art songs and arias as well which have their own tool in a student's growth and versatility.

Most importantly, I like to have fun in the studio. I have a very open and goofy personality and want you to feel free to be goofy as well. Dare to fail. You may learn more from your voice cracking then you might from singing a beautiful note.

About Teresa

Hello! I am looking forward to meeting you! I have been private teaching for many years, even while I was in high school, but formally after I graduated from West Chester University with a BS in Music Education. I love helping my students accomplish their goals whether it be a brand new beginner just learning their instrument or someone looking to audition for a challenging group. I especially enjoy adult students working on their dream of playing an instrument. As an instructor, I try to bring positive motivation and a sense of accomplishment to each lesson, but practice is of upmost importan
ce. I am looking forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals!
