Mike E. Carnegie, PA

About Mike

I am a professional percussionist and recording engineer with a Bachelors in Music Technology from Duquesne University. I have been playing for 14 years and am versed in in many drumming styles including rock, funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian. As a recording engineer I have recorded every genre from classical to metal. I cover everything from sound theory and physics to hands on application. *** Lesson Details *** Beginning lessons involve the rudimentary study of rhythm and their application to drumming as a whole. Building a sense of independence in each hand so that both are equally as comfortable and strong will be emphasized. From their students will learn the intricacies of the drumset and develop a sense of interdependence between their limbs. I will start the student with a

Mike is an awesome instructor. He was very patient with me and systematically took me through the basics of hand-drumming. I am looking forward to practicing more and making enough progress to impress Mike the next time we meet up!
Cory P. Pittsburgh, PA

About Cory

I grew up around Atlanta, GA and started playing piano when I was around 7 years old and bass when I was 11. Most of my education has been on the upright bass. I've studied classical bass performance at major music schools on the east coast and in the midwest. I've studied and worked with musicians from many of the great orchestras around the world. I enjoy working with students who are just coming to the bass or piano for the first time and getting them started with music in a rewarding way as well as more advanced students that need finer musical direction or audition coaching. *** Lesson Details *** I try to keep a relaxed environment while still being motivating and inspiring. I tailor lessons around what the individual student's goals are. There are materials that I like to ...

Great piano teacher

Cory was willing to take on the challenge of teaching my 4 year old daughter piano. She has now been in lessons for 1 year and is doing far better than I had imagined she would be doing at this point. She is already reading music, playing with both hands at the same time, and playing chords. Cory is very patient and kind and my daughter really enjoys taking lessons with him.

My two girls started taking piano lessons in Kindergarten and were very excited to learn. That enthusiasm didn't last long when teacher after teacher showed irritation and a lack of patience with young learners. We went through SIX teachers and were asked by friends why we continued our search for the RIGHT teacher. I knew the girls wanted to play and the problem wasn't that they were children, the problem was finding that teacher who had great patience, an even temper, and one who could move students through those periods of tough times. We found THAT teacher in Ms. Patty!!!!! We have been with her now for two years. The girls are practicing now for their fourth recital and absolutely love playing. They have learned so much more than piano. They have learned patience by example...... Ms. Patty is the best ever!!!!!! <3

I am an older adult who has been taking lessons from Patti for over 2 years now. She has been extremely patient with me and I'm happy with her teaching style. As a person who just wants piano lessons for fun (and to keep my brain working), Patti is glad to accommodate me in having a say as to what music selections I want to learn. I would highly recommend her.

Thank for the great lesson! I'll definitely have some excellent stuff to work on. Also, I just wanted to say thanks again for doing this online instruction. You're a great teacher and this method fits perfect with my highly mobile life. I'll be in touch soon to schedule another round of lessons.
Zach from Denver Corado
I was skeptical about taking music lessons by Skype, but thought I would give it a try since there are no accordion teachers in my area. Skype lessons with David have turned out to be quite a pleasure and much better than the best I could have imagined. First of all, David pays such close attention to my playing that he picks up on little details that I thought might go by unnoticed through a video lesson ( e.g. fingering and minor issues with my accordion reeds). Also, because David is so personable, the lessons are fun and I forget that we are not actually in the same room together. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I have been taking weekly lessons for only two months and my playing has already improved considerably. All and all, I am extremely happy with my accordion lessons with David through Skype: I have an attentive teacher, the lessons are fun, I am getting much better, and the only thing I'm missing from taking lessons with a teacher in person is the drive!
Bruno (student) New York City
I have been learning the accordion with David for a few months now and would happily recommend his Skype tutoring service. I have progressed well since starting the lessons and really enjoyed David's teaching style. He covers all the basics and fundamentals necessary for my level but also focuses on chord structures and progressions with an eye on mor advanced technique.
Stuart Dorin, (student) London,England
I love the Skype lessons! It allows me to learn how to play accordion from the comfort of my own home. I just set up a time to meet and then do the lesson! It's quick, easy and painless. David is very knowledgeable about the accordion and I have learned so much from him in only a few months. I would highly recommend the Skype lessons with David to anyone who wants to learn accordion, but may be hesitant about online lessons.
