About Rina M.

I am a music educator, classically trained with an advanced performance degree. As a soloist and collaborative musician, I have performed professionally in ensembles, bands and orchestras both here and abroad. With a high degree of knowledge and proficiency, I teach proper technique and practice strategies, music notation, theory, rhythm and phrasing, while adapting teaching approaches to match the needs of each student. I share a love of music with my students and it gives me great pride to hear each student develop their own musical voice. *** Lesson Details *** My goal is to help students of varying ages and abilities succeed musically. Dedicated, experienced, encouraging, and sensitive to student moods, I am a multi-instrumentalist who can instruct you in acoustic guitar, classical guitar, piano (classical and popular repertoire), and oboe. Study music to awaken your aural senses, develop muscle memory, and enhance your intellectual development. *** Studio Equipment *** Piano and bench, keyboard, guitar, guitar stand, music stand, foot stool. Ample seating for parents. *** Travel Equipment *** I am comfortable teaching from a piano or keyboard. I will transport my own guitar and anticipate students will own or rent the instrument they will be studying. *** Specialties *** Beginner to advanced music instruction, guitar notation and chords, piano melodies and accompaniment, instruction in theory, audition prep, classical piano, oboe and more.

If you are looking for a motivating teacher for an older adult like me- Rina should be your #1 choice. I look forward to our weekly time together. I have learned so much and ready to learn even more. Rina keeps me motivated and the pace for an adult learner is perfect. I highly recommend her!

Rina is a wonderful teacher. From the perspective of an adult student, her understanding of the challenges an adult beginner experiences puts the student at ease when taking lessons with her. While exhibiting such empathy, Rina will always inspire the student to become a better musician. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

Rina is an organized instructor who perceives my son’s strengths/weaknesses and demonstrates real concern for him as a blossoming musician. She goes out of her way in unexpected ways such as helping him acquire a better instrument at a bargain price. Wow!
