Overview

As a musician, performer, songwriter and teacher my goal is to share my passion and talent for music while helping others achieve their musical goals. I have experience working with all ages and skill levels. I will teach you anything from the basics of playing guitar (acoustic or electric) or how to properly use your voice to reading, writing, creating and performing songs the way you have always dreamed of. I provide a compassionate and inspiring learning environment as well as motivated lessons where each student grows and feels cared for. I have built student and family relationships that have lasted for years! If you have a passion for music now is the time to make your dreams come true. I would love to work with you to make that happen! If you want to work with someone who has performed, experienced the music business, worked with many different people and musicians, studied and has loved what they have done for years I would love to hear from you!

Experience

Guitar, Vocal, Music Theory and Songwriting Teacher

Sep 2008 - Present
Be True Music

I started my own music lesson business eight years ago after ten years of practicing, performing and studying my craft. Since then I have been giving students of all ages the opportunity to learn in a comfortable and encouraging environment through fun personalized lessons. My goal is to help each individual succeed musically in their own way. Together we will bring the love of music into your life. Wether you are looking to dive into a musical hobby or create/grow a life centered around music I am the teacher for you!

I have worked/currently work with children and teens who now have a lasting love and talent for music. Many have gone on to perform, compete and win competitions or build their own music career around what we worked on together. I am a big kid at heart and love giving children the opportunity to learn something that is so important and life changing.

I have also have worked/currently work with adults in all stages of life! For example you may need extra help with what you are learning in school or you perform to help pay your bills but want to learn how to use a stage/equipment. Maybe you are looking to make a career out of your music and want to improve your craft. A big request I get is to teach a student how to play guitar and sing at the same time or how to turn lyrics and melodies into a song. Some are now retired and have always wanted to learn music so they have decided to go for it. No matter what stage of life you are in I will find the best way to help you get to where you want to be musically!

I have experience working with home-schoolers, after school programs, children with special needs, using my vocal lessons as an addition to speech therapy and preparing students for talent competitions, auditions and plays/musicals.

I am now creating songs using my old and new poetry and lyrics thanks to Sam. I am creating melodies, playing guitar and writing all of the time. I wish I would've found Sam sooner but I am enjoying my new passion for songwriting!

Singing · Online
When I was a little girl I always to sing. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with the natural ability to sing. One night I was out with some friends checking out live music, and I met Sam Dicesare. She was kind enough to talk to me after her show, and I expressed my love for singing. I asked if she gave lessons and SHE DOES!!! Over the last 8 months I have been taking weekly vocal lessons from Sam. And I see a huge improvement in my singing voice!(I'm sure my dogs and neighbors thank her as well!!) She never got frustrated with me in the beginning while I struggled to stay on key. It's obvious she wants her students to succeed. She has been a huge help and is always there too answer my questions!!!

I have been taking lessons from Sam for about 4 years! I started out not knowing anything about guitar and now I am playing shows often and pursuing my dream!!! Sam is such a fun instructor and really breaks things down in the lessons making it very easy to learn! So whatever skill level you are, Sam Dicesare will be able to take your guitar playing to a whole other level. That girl is out of this world!!!!

Samantha has been working my twelve year old son Jacob for two years now. He stays eager to learn and is excited to practice what he is learning every week. Jacob has begun to perform in local school and talent completions. He wouldn't be where he is without such a wonderful and dedicated teacher! Thank you Sam.

Samantha has been teaching me guitar for over a year now and I have loved it! She is very knowledgeable, professional, and considerate of what my thoughts and goals are throughout the process, working with me to put together a program which works best for me. I have learned so much and I have enjoyed the process! She is extremely encouraging and patient working at my pace, while constantly challenging me to improve my skills. Definitely recommend lessons with Samantha!
