About Beau
*** Lesson Details ***
I studied music performance at UMass Dartmouth. I have the tools and resources to teach the students what they need to know in order to teach themselves. In lessons, I focus on what the student wants to learn, however for younger students I tend to stick with the methods books for a while.
I am a big fan of applying relevant elements of music theory to the music we're learning: it helps to understand the science behind the music. Noticing patterns and understanding common terminology will make it easier to learn pieces and play with other musicians.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Kimball baby grand piano.
I can teach at my house in Attleboro as well as come to you.

*** Specialties ***
Music theory and classical piano. (Classical and pop)

Beau is patient and kind, and yet persistent and focused with my 8 year old daughter. She has major anxiety issues and is often both frightened by new people and hyper sensitive to correction. Beau navigates her through her fears and shares his love of the music. She has had half a dozen lessons now, and we fully intend to continue lessons with Beau.

My daughter was thrilled with the job Beau did on the first lesson and has a renewed drive to really work at playing. I'm very impressed. Even my younger daughter listened in and said "he's amazing". Looking forward to the next Lesson.

Brian Hickey was my high school drama instructor for 4 years and if it weren't for him, I wouldn't be pursing a theatre career. His training made me a more confident actress, and his faith in me made me a more confident person. He taught me to lend myself to the story, to be a generous actress and to make bold choices. I highly recommend this incredible teacher!

Mr. Hickey is simply incredible. I wouldn't be in the musical theatre program I'm in at college if I didn't study with him for four years. I learned so much useful skills and the level he taught at for my education level pushed us students at the right speed and difficulty. So thank you.

Kyle gave me a few lessons during my college woodwinds methods class on the sax. As a pianist attempting to learn a wind instrument Kyle's advice and time were a HUGE help to a total beginner like myself. He definitely knows the sax inside and out and without his help my sax test grades in woodwinds would have been considerably lower than what they were. I definitely encourage any students looking for a sax teacher to choose Kyle because of his extensive knowledge on the instrument and approachable nature.

About Ethan
Hello, My name is Ethan Lyons and I’m a graduate of the Bishop Hendricken High School Class of 2017, and I give private drum lessons to people of all ages in the comfort of their own homes. I recently auditioned and was accepted to the University of Rhode Island’s Music program, and will be studying music education in the fall of 2017.
While I love to perform, I believe that my passion is teaching. Over the past year I’ve been teaching and mentoring younger students as well as my friends and colleagues, and I wish to expand my clientele. I give private drum lessons to people of all ages, with a concentration in rudimental snare drum. Over the winter I was invited to march in the 2017 Rose Bowl Parade, Bands of America Honor Band in Pasadena, California as a snare drummer in the drum line. Marching snare drum requires an extreme amount
of meticulous concentration to technique, and I believe that this focus on technique is the key to being a good percussionist, which is what I focus on in the beginning of the private lessons. I also teach basic music theory in rhythms, so that the student can read drum music at a basic to intermediate level.
After I feel like the student has grasped the ideas of the technique, is able to apply it to the snare drum, and is able to successfully read sheet music, we then move over to the drum set and apply the same ideas around the drums. I play professionally in small jazz ensembles, and in a local rock band called “The Naticks”(recently named Best Indy Band in Ri by Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.) I’ve also played in numerous school ensembles, and at the Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School for some time. The drum set lessons focus primarily on rock and jazz, with some basic lessons on other genres like latin and afro-cuban.
My goal is to foster a love and appreciation of music in people of all ages. Being able to connect with people of all cultures and languages through one universal connection, like music, is something indescribable, and I wish to share my passion with other people.

Hi there!

I am a supportive and encouraging teacher willing to teach all ages and abilities. It is my firm belief that music is for everyone.

I am currently pursuing my M.M. from Longy School of Music. I completed my undergraduate work at Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon privately. I am currently on the private lesson roster for two public schools in the area, and teach both double-reeded instruments. I have successfully helped young students prepare for and audition into district level ensembles.

I have reed-making experience and can assist students with finicky reeds, to help ease the most frustrating part about playing oboe & bassoon.

I'm looking forward to working with you!

About Joshua
Hi, My name is Josh Mariani and I am a professional trombonist with Navy Band Northeast stationed in Newport RI. At Navy Band Northeast I perform with the brass quintet, concert/ceremonial band, and the pops ensemble.

Before this I was in the Marines as trombonist as well. I have performed in hundreds of special occasions for the military and open concerts for the public. This includes everything from playing in a big band, concert band, wind ensemble, brasss ensemble, brass quintet, brass band, orchestra, as well as solo work. In 2008 I started my first semester at VanderCook College of Music where I attended for four years. After that I spent four years in the Marines before deciding to transition to the Navy.

I've been performing and teaching privately for over 10 years now and love every second of it. When teaching I do focus
quite a bit a technique. Once you have the technique everything else will follow. Making music can be and often is the most fulfilling thing in my life and want to share that passion with others and teach them how they can do the same. I have had several students go on to pursue music in college as well. I know what it takes to make a great musician and would love to help you get to where you want to be. I do have a lot of performance experience I believe I can teach anyone who is willing to learn how to be a great musician. I teach all ages, beginner to advanced.
