Dayle M.

Richboro, PA

About Dayle

Children won't learn to play an instrument if they quit their lessons, so give them lessons they don't want to quit!

Music lessons made fun!

Dayle Music: Private Piano, Sax, Flute, and Clarinet lessons for all ages (3 and up) and skill levels, special preschool and senior citizen lessons. Morning/Daytime lessons are discounted, comfortable waiting area for parents, adjacent playroom so siblings are invited to play during lessons!

I am an award winning, Pi Kappa Lambda honoree, summa cum laude graduate of Syracuse University's school of Visual and Performing Arts-Setnor School of Musi
c, where I received a four-year music director's talent scholarship.

I am classically trained and perform all styles of music, from classical to jazz to pop. I play saxophone, flute, clarinet, and piano. I perform professionally with a large Philadelphia based entertainment company, as well as with local bands in the Philadelphia area.

I teach piano, saxophone, flute, and clarinet to all ages and skill levels. I enjoy working with students who just want to play for fun, as well as those who are looking to compete in local competitions. I have been involved in County, District, Regional, and All-States bands, concerto/jazz competitions, music composition contests, and the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County's Wind Ensemble.

I love teaching music, and I look forward to lessons with you!

*I also have a special piano lesson program developed just for preschoolers ages 3 and up. Learning music at a young age helps develop the part of the brain involved with thinking, memory, language, math, and creativity.

*** Lesson Details ***
My music program has a reward system, age appropriate games, worksheets and other fun activities. Your child will never learn to play an instrument if they quit their lessons so I make sure that my lessons are so enjoyable that they never want to quit!!!

I have been taking private music lessons myself since I was 8 years old and have had many teachers over the years. From my experience, I have really learned what and what not to do when teaching a student. I will provide my own students with a custom teaching style (books and curriculum vary from student to student) to fit their personal skill levels.

I want my students learn music that they are the most interested in playing, which I feel is an important part of the lesson. I also will make sure they build up their theory skills (note names, key signatures, rhythms, chord names, etc.) and scales as well to compliment the music they are learning.

I am always very friendly and patient with my students. I make sure they are learning at a pace that is best for them and making progress in a fun way! I recommend that students purchase books that are appropriate to their skill levels. Students can either buy the books/supplies from a music store or directly from me. I have a special piano program specially designed for preschoolers, as well as adults and seniors!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is equipped with a piano, CD player to listen to music and "play-alongs," music stands, and seating for parents if they wish to stay. I have my own instruments (flute, clarinet, alto/tenor saxophone) so that I can teach by example.

Dayle is a delightful and upbeat person. She is also a very patient, encouraging, and helpful teacher. She knows how much I can handle in each session so I don't experience frustration. I know I'm learning and always look forward to my lessons.

Dayle is a great teacher! She is very patient with my daughter who takes saxophone lessons, and works at a great pace. My daughter sees how much she has improved since starting private lessons with Dayle, and this makes her more confident in her playing ability. The lessons are also fun, but she learns a lot as well. I am very happy we found Dayle!

Jonathan H.

Hatfield, PA

About Jonathan

I started my musical education in a children'€™s choir at age 6.
When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin
at 9 and trombone at 10. I am now proficient on the guitar, bass, and piano. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean'€™s list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I started my teaching career at Milestones in Music, a local studio, as an independent contractor, where i was able to gain valuable experience and fine tune m
y curriculum. I am a member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to work with a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most prestigious
award in music, the Grammy). I am the band leader at my church Montco Bible Fellowship, and the lead audio tech for an audio/video group.. Sanctuary Sound. I also do consultant work for organizations looking to setup a sound system/studio. I enjoy recording my own music in my home studio, and learning to play new instruments. I hope to pass my love for music to the next generation!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor... as you will find out! I understand that not everyone learns at the same rate; however, I am a perfectionist and don't allow students to advance until they have learned a particular skill. I would rather a student take forever to learn a song, and practice it with good technique, than be able to play it right away with poor form and posture! I reinforce the value of working toward goals and celebrate with students when they reach them.  I understand that every student has different interests and reasons for wanting to learn an instrument... I try to focus on the areas that are of interest to the student, because if you are enjoying yourself then you will excel.  This does not mean that the subjects and skills that are not of interest will not be taught, because I believe in being a well-rounded musician. I teach both jazz (improvisation/reading chord charts) and classical (written/ composed music).

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is currently not optimal for teaching... I hope to change this within the next year!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books and other learning materials, but expect to be reimbursed. I expect the student to have their own instrument/equipment. Piano students are required to have a piano or a keyboard with weighted keys/hammer-action (preferably 88 keys), a piano bench and a pedal. Guitar/bass students must have an acoustic/electric guitar/bass with a strap or footstool, pick, and cable and amplifier if applicable! Digital audio students must have their own computer, Digital Audio workstation (software), digital audio interface, speakers/headphones and midi controller. All students must purchase a full size notebook with lined or staff paper!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and jazz piano! I am more than proficient at most production software including: cubase, reason, fl studio, melodyne, digital performer and protools... and other editing software such as sony sound forge, audacity, etc...

Michael M.

Pennington, NJ

About Michael

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have been involved with music for many years. The instruments that I play include Trumpet, French Horn, Handbells, Organ, Voice, and Piano. I received my formal education at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, which is where I earned a B.A. degree with Honors in Music. In order to obtain my Honors, I chose to develop elementary lessons on Chinese folk music. In my Junior year of college, I performed a dual media recital in both Voice and Piano, and for my Senior year recital, I focused on giving a Vocal performance. These recitals demonstrated the musical t
alent and techniques that I had developed throughout my experience at college. In addition to my musical experiences in college, I have also learned about various pedagogical approaches through both my vocal studies as well as my studies on the keyboard. There is always more than one approach to teaching musical concepts! As a musician, I have performed in both the Bethlehem/Allentown area and the central New Jersery area. In addition, I have sung as a member of the Princeton Pro Musica and sat as a member on the executive board of the Princeton Girlchoir. These experiences have enhanced my professional insight as a musical instructor today. At present, I am a teacher in the classroom, an organist at a local Presbyterian church, and a private piano instructor. Overall, I thoroughly enjoy seeing my students grow and develop as musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
My instruction correlates with the age, the musical background, and the public/private school music curriculum of the student. Each lesson is a special musical vignette in the sense that it is a unique learning time for the student. It is important for the student to be motivated by the material that they are given and to have a full understanding of the concept(s) that were taught in the lesson. Above all other reasons, it is most important for the student to enjoy their piano lessons and want to come back the next week. Therefore, it is my job as the instructor to inspire them to practice and benefit from each and every lesson. Whether it be vocal or piano instruction, each lesson consists of fun warm-ups, interesting technical exercises, and repertoire of all sorts. What the student learns in 3-6 months depends upon the motivation of the student as well as my ability to teach what the student needs to know in order to achieve their goals as a pianist and/or vocalist. Regarding my methods of instructing piano students, I use the Middle C method for players of all levels. Those who are more advanced use triads as well. My overall goal as a teacher is to work with my students and give them the skills that are necessary to play music that they enjoy.

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in living room; 2 pianos (C2 Yamaha and Steinway upright); organ

*** Specialties ***
Middle C Piano Method using instructional materials of the Bastien's and Alfred Publications

Singing · In studio
Lessons with Mike Mraz was a Christmas present from my son, Andrew. I enjoy singing, yet have never had occasion to study music or to take private lessons. Mike helped me clarify my goals: breath control, vocal mechanics, reading music and having fun. He graciously sent me some primer materials and located sheet music for several of my favorite Broadway show tunes. Our five 45-minute sessions together were both instructive and enjoyable. As I approach age 70, I can check "work with a voice coach" on my "Bucket List." Kudos for Mike!

I'm so happy that I've found a best piano teacher, Michael. He explains theories clearly. He gives me lots of encouragement during the lesson. I got his email about Triad theory reinforcement and next lesson 2 hours after my lesson. Highly recommend Michael to all retirees like me who love to take piano lessons.

Matthew S.

Levittown, PA

About Matthew

I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university.

I wish to help others make music
an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine.

*** Lesson Details ***
For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my methods and use a scaffolding technique. Going out of your comfort zone helps learning and development.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fender Jazz Bass
Music Man SUB Bass
Ampeg amp

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a logbook or notebook, staff paper, pencils, their instruments if applicable, and a metronome.

I bring extra staff paper and pencils just in case

rock, jazz, funk, R&B, classical

Singing · In studio
Kelsey does a fantastic job!! I've been singing for almost 3 years now and I write my own originals but never knew why, when I would sing I would always change the melody in my lyrics. I would never stay consistent even though I was writing the music. With just a few lessons I am already gaining more control and confidence in my voice. Kelsey truly understands the voice and makes learning very easy, fun and exciting!! If I want to learn to sing like Ed sheeran or any other artist, she knows exactly what to do and takes the proper steps to grow my voice in the direction I want to take it. She is very adaptive and will suit anyone's needs.You will be very satisfied with Kelsey and her instruction. She is not just a teacher but also a top notch musician and an amazing song writing, anyone would be pleased and happy to have her as a teacher.

Exercises for Practicing Guitar Chords
There are several ways to master the technique of changing chords, so let’s look at a couple of exercises using basic guitar chords. The basic guitar chords are C, D, Dm, E, Em, F, G, A, and Am.

Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chords un
