Karen S.

Wilmington, DE

About Karen

I hold a Bachelor of Music Education Degree from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. I have studied piano with Gisa Adler at New School of Music in Philadelphia, PA. I taught public school in the Conestoga Valley School District in Lancaster County, PA and I have taught private piano for over ten years.
I love music and I love teaching - seeing my students progress and reach their goals. I believe music should be a pleasant experience and a demanding and ill - spirited teacher can ruin a student. I am NOT one of these. You will find me patient and supportive.

*** Lesson Details **
*
To be an accomplished pianist you must learn all the basics well. These include music symbology which enables you to read music so you can translate it into the sound on the piano. In order to play the music written on the page you must train your fingers to do what you need them to do - so you will have finger exercises and scales to practice to enable to play pieces/songs you like. In order to accomplish all this we will use a piano method designed to teach you these things little by little so you won't get overwhelmed. One step at a time towards your goal - self enjoyment, being the life of the party, accompany the chorus, play the songs you hear on the radio or perhaps even become a renowned pianist on stage or in the theater. Whatever your goal you will need to practice and you must have a piano or at least a keyboard. The method we use will depend on the student's age, reading level, past experience with piano or other instruments and I will take into consideration your goals. If you are interested in popular music there will be a point (when you are ready) when you will be able to add this type of music to the lesson music. How quickly you grow musically depends greatly on the quality of your practice time - thus you will determine your rate of progress.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I like to purchase new materials myself for the student based on their needs at the time. They need a decent notebook for listing practice items. I usually have the method book, with note-speller for beginners, theory for more advanced, and additional pieces (non-method) as appropriate. Hanon is a staple. I use various other materials to remedy finger technique and rhythm issues as learned from my teachers and those devised by myself.

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to use a variety of materials. At the first lesson I assess reading ability, interest, physical ability and attention span to determine what materials are appropriate for the student. All students will learn scales, finger exercises, pieces and theory. I have used Thompson, Schaum, Pace, Fletcher and Alfred in my teaching - and frequently a combination there-of.

Alexis explains technique in a way that is at once immediately understandable and easy to implement. I've only had a few lessons with her and I'm already noticing a huge improvement. I would highly recommend her as a voice teacher to anyone at any level.

Alexis has been a wonderful private vocal instructor for my son who is currently a middle school student. She is professional, versatile, helpful, flexible and extremely encouraging as a teacher and mentor. Alexis believes that her students need a solid musical foundation; she is willing to spend time teaching the basics in order to assure her students know how to read music. She has been able to help my son grasp and learn music theory concepts that were sometime challenging in his music theory class at school. Alexis has also worked diligently with my son on musical theatre audition preparation which prepared him and ultimately earned him lead roles in a few musical theatre productions. Alexis is very versatile and is able to teach many types of musical and vocal styles from classical, to Broadway – musical theatre and to popular music, etc. She worked with my son and helped him gain confidence to participate as a vocal soloist for his school’s talent show. I also love the fact that Alexis can see the growth in her student’s after they have worked hard in their private lessons; she offers them advice and encouragement and often recommends new opportunities for the student to try such as auditioning for All State Choirs. Alexis is also very flexible and will work with you in instances where you need to change, reschedule or cancel your vocal lessons. This flexibility is greatly needed and appreciated as a busy parent who may have to change the schedule due to personal conflicts or work commitment. But, the best endorsement that I can give for Alexis is that my son trust, believes in and likes Alexis as a teacher and as a person and as a parent, I don’t think you can ask for too much more!

Stephen R.

Aston, PA

About Stephen

Stephen began violin lessons at age three. When his family relocated to Parrish, Florida in 1999, he joined the Florida West Coast Youth Symphony at age six and performed with them for six consecutive years, serving as concert master and assistant concert master. He then auditioned for The Venice Symphony and was accepted at age thirteen, the 2006-2007 season. He has performed with them for three consecutive seasons. In addition, he has also performed with the Sarasota Pops for two seasons from 2006 to 2008. He then joined The South Shore Symphony Orchestra in 2010, and performed with them for
their first five concerts and has served as principal second violin. He also has joined Anna Marina Island Concert Chorus and Orchestra and has performed with them for the 2010-2011 season. In February of 2011, he relocated to the South Philly suburbs and is currently performed with the Delaware County Symphony and the Rose Tree Pops. Throughout the years, Stephen has performed with Elicia in a number of events, including weddings, Christmas shows, and entertainment at restaurants such as the 800 Bay Restaurant and Club.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons offer an extensive education in technique, musicality, music theory, and most importantly, effective practice methods that increase capability and skill rapidly. I tailor my lessons specifically according to the student's abilities and strengths, while incorporating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Typically, I use the Suzuki and Strictly Strings books for beginner students, and I will then advance to etude studies such as Wolfarht and Sevick in addition to the Suzuki sequels for my intermediate students. Lastly, I will add Introducing the Positions, Mazas, Josephine Trott Double Stops, and solo concertos to my advanced students.

After a few months, my students acquire a well rounded knowledge and feel for the violin and classical music and appreciate the art and beauty music brings to life. They are always strongly impacted and inspired to pursue and achieve higher goals and activities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In the music room there is a piano and music stands, and music available for purchase if necessary.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring my own instrument, but would expect my students to have an instrument, stand (or a piano is fine), music (if it is not a first lesson) and a willingness to learn!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical violin, and I have worked with the Suzuki Method, but I am also very open to other methods and schools. I also teach varied styles of violin such as fiddle.

As a violin teacher, I am impressed by his ability to work with a variety of age groups and skill levels. He relates well to children and brings joy and humor to every lesson, while explaining the mechanics and the physics behind the technical aspect of music to more mature students.

I highly recommend Stephen to anyone who has a desire to learn the violin and a passion for music!

Amanda B.

West Chester, PA

About Amanda

I am currently studying at West Chester University of Pennsylvania majoring in Violin Performance, with oboe as my minor instrument. I perform with the Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Opera Orchestra, Baroque Ensemble and many other small ensembles on campus. I am also an active performer in the local area, and I especially enjoy playing in operas and musical theater. I have experience playing classical, fiddle and rock genres, with my focus being classical. I have been furthering my teaching skills through American String Teachers Association membership, Suzuki training, and pedagogy s
tudy at the Starling-Delay Symposium on Violin Studies held at The Julliard School.

I work to help students create and achieve their musical goals. Every student goes home with a list of points covered in their lesson so they know exactly what must be practiced for the upcoming lessons. This list helps students practice in a more focused fashion so they can improve as steadily and quickly as possible. I customize my teaching style for each student to ensure that they get the most out of lessons. Students with longer lessons (45min or more) can benefit from music theory workbooks and games which I incorporate into the lessons. My goal is to make every lesson fun and challenging for my students!

I give my students multiple performance opportunities each year. The past two years I had a formal spring recitals where my students had the experience of playing with an accompanist in a recital hall. Another performance opportunity I offered in the past was a more casual Duet Day where my students and I performed duets for their family and the community in a park. Of course, these opportunities change from year to year, but the emphasis is always on having fun in performance!

Allison L.

West Chester, PA

About Allison

Hello! My name is Allison Landon and I am a bachelors of music graduate with focus in jazz vocal studies from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I have been professionally trained vocally, both classical and jazz, for 15 years, and have also had professional piano training for 11 years.

My expertise vocally, ranges from the pedagogy of singing, breathing techniques, classical singing (arias, operas), all the way to broadway musicals, jazz standards, and scatting (vocal improv).

My expertise in piano ranges from beginner to advanced (both classical and jazz) and jazz improvisa
tion.

With both my vocal students and piano students it is important that I introduce music theory, ear training and sight-reading into the lessons, to strengthen my students musical knowledge and abilities.

I offer lessons to both piano and vocal students of all abilities ranging from none to little experience and advanced skills.

Allison is a fantastic instructor. I had no experience playing piano or with anything related to music. She's taught me how to read music, play basic songs, and patience because learning music is tough when, like me, you start with no prior knowledge. I will continue taking piano lessons with her and improving the already solid base she has given me.
