I have been teaching piano for over 15 years, both in the classroom and private lesson settings. I believe anyone can learn an instrument-so all ages and skill levels are welcome. I fervently believe that a solid foundation in music theory and technique goes a long way, but I also know that you should love what you do. If that love is classical music, then this is the place for you-music should bring joy! Because I am a classically trained pianist I can help you achieve your goals, whether they be to prepare for a college or governor's school audition, to prepare for competitions, or simply to play the music you most enjoy. Whether you have always dreamed of learning or are browsing for a child just beginning to consider it, I would love to work with you!

About Carrie

I am a professional worship leader and pianist, as well as a professional teacher. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music, specifically voice and piano, from Columbia International University and a Master of Arts in Teaching early childhood and elementary education from that same school. I have been

My name is Anastasiia and I am a Russian mezzo-soprano pursuing a masters degree at the Curtis Institute of Music.
I believe that everyone has the ability to discover the full potential of their voice. I will teach you the foundations of vocal technique to achieve full freedom of your sound to get the most natural vibration and color of your personal voice. We will focus on exercises that will prioritize and preserve the health of your voice through core training, breath exercises and vowel placement.Let’s build you a healthy instrument so you can enjoy singing as much as I do!

With beginners I will also focus on ear training and ways to learn music more efficiently.

Highly recommend Anastasiia - I came in with a lot of bad habits and after only a month with her I already feel my singing is so much healthier.
She is phenomenal at explaining techniques in a way that you'll understand, which is so important. I look forward to continuing to improve with her help!
Natalya
Anastasia is brilliant at what she does. Not only she is a superb singer, she synthesised her training and knowledge in a very effective way. She skilfully holds container for my explorations of the voice and focuses lessons on me working to my fullest potential. There is nowhere to hide! In a good way. I am truly grateful. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜

Want to hone your ability to play a song by ear? Hear a melody in your head and then be able to recreate it on your instrument? If so, you'll find a lot of value in focusing on ear training. With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best. I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

About Jonah

Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals. I've worked with

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.
Casey
My 15 year old son has been taking virtual guitar lessons with Jonah and has loved it. Jonah is a great teacher who really gets on my son’s level and connects. It’s a fun thing for him to do during this strange year.

I learned some basics I didn't pick up for years of ballet classes and truly appreciate her being so thoughtful and attentive to the details.
