Hi!! When you study with me, I will tailor the lesson to fit your needs and YOUR goals. Method books may work awesome for some students, while others may prefer a more "by ear" approach. Whatever your music goals or needs may be, I will work with you to make sure they are achieved, planning your lesson around YOU. Questions during lessons are welcomed and encouraged. I do a recital during the summer also, because as an active performer, it is my firm belief that students learn faster and with more enthusiasm and interest when they have a specific goal to feel excited about.
About Ari P.

My students and students' parents have praised me for my musicianship, patience, and compassion. I am an operatic soprano and musical theater musician, thus making me a diverse and well-rounded instructor. In voice lessons, we will focus on vocalizes, excellent technique, theory, and appropriate repertoire. I take a different approach to every student, realizing that not everyone learns the same, and that what may work for one student will not work for everyone, so I plan each unique lesson differently to suit your goals and needs. I received my Pedagogy Degree from UB, I love working with all kinds of students and cannot wait to meet you! Let’s start your musical journey! I teach voice a combination of bel canto and Swedish Italian technique.

Ari is sweet and kind, honest and goal-setting. My former teacher told me I could be on "American Idol." While this is nice to hear, I felt like something was lacking from the lessons. I went to Ari and she told me that although I had a beautiful voice, I had to work on my breath support. We have set realistic goals together and now I feel much better about my technique!! Thanks Ari!

Arielle is a wonderful teacher and takes into consideration the different learning styles for her students. She makes you feel very comfortable and we also even laugh together. She is very respcectful and appreciative of different vocal styles and genres and caters different vocal techniques to your personal style. Can't say enough nice things about her.

I'm a former music major and I have performed with several bands throughout my life on guitar, harmonica, and vocals. I recently decided to take up an instrument that I studied for a very short time as a child - violin. I've had lessons for about six months now with Arielle, and will continue to study with her for some time. She is an excellent teacher, and at a very reasonable cost, especially compared to others. She teaches every single detail of what I should know about playing violin, supplied a really helpful textbook to me, and each lesson is great fun, not dull work for a beginner. I really appreciate that. If someone is expecting to have an effective and pleasing learning experience, just go ahead and work with Arielle. It is absolutely worth the time and effort.
