Aaron M.

Franklin, MA

About Aaron

Berklee College of Music graduate, Aaron M., has been teaching students of all ages for over 12 years.
"I love watching young musicians grow into seasoned players and have had tremendous success with all my students. I believe that learning songs and playing music is a critical element in the learning process of becoming a good drummer/pianist, and musician. This is why I bring a powered PA speaker, mp3 player, and (sometimes) a guitar to my lessons for the student to play along with and learn familiar songs. Over the years I've learned to strike a balance between Reading/Rudiments and P
laying/having fun, so as to maintain students interests and growth."

My boys, ages 7 & 5, started piano lessons with Aaron a year ago. He has taught them technique & theory all while using songs they boys love. There are days that the boys are not the most cooperative. Aaron is amazingly patient and persistent in getting the boys to do their lessons. I really appreciate and have learned from this patience when it comes to the nightly practicing. I am pleased that the boys have been working with a male teacher and I think it really helps them relate to the music and the lessons. If you are looking for a patient yet knowledgeable piano teacher, I would definitely recommend Aaron.

Jenae S.

Ashland, MA

About Jenae

I have had a regular studio of violin and piano students in the Boston area since 2006. I began teaching in 2001 in Seattle, WA. I perform regularly as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player at the Longy School of Music, in the Freisinger Chamber Orchestra, the Dorchester Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Civic Symphony Orchestra.

My primary focus in my teaching is to guide my students to becoming independent musicians, and to help them develop a thorough understanding of music. Lessons include learning about music theory, sight reading, performance skills and technique. I have
a thorough understanding of pedagogy and a true passion for teaching students of all ages.

Education:

I've received both my Master's of Music degree with Emphasis in String Pedagogy and Undergraduate Diploma in Violin Performance from the Longy School of Music, studying with professors Janet Packer and Mark Lakirovich, and have received my Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Emerson College.

Originally from Seattle, WA, I began studying the piano at the age of seven. Soon after, I began studying the violin, and performed regularly in recitals and competitions. I have won scholarships to attend the Longy School of Music for both programs and the Max Aronoff Viola Institute.

My hobbies include dancing Argentine tango and playing tango music, riding horses, sailing and yoga.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are fun and creative, and we'll work on something new and exciting each week. Students bring their lesson books and notebooks to each lesson, and practice goals are written clearly in their notebooks at each lesson. I use a series of different books depending on the age and level of the student, with a combination of classical, popular, and folk melodies. In my lessons, I often play my violin with my students to demonstrate certain points, or play along for support so they can match the sound. I also accompany violin students on the piano, providing a strong musical support and an opportunity to learn how to play with a different instrument.

Usually, after a just a couple of weeks, students are already playing pieces they are familiar with. I encourage my students to practice every day, because consistency is very important when learning an instrument. Students will also learn how prepare for performances and have the opportunity to play in recitals each year.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate Music studio adjacent to house w/ piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an excellent quality keyboard, if necessary. Students should have a keyboard or piano at home to practice on, or a violin if they are taking violin lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Popular

Jenae is a great teacher!

My son just started violin lessons with Jenae and after barely a month is making great progress and staying motivated, even though he's starting this endeavor at almost 11 years old. Jenae's approach is very encouraging and methodical. We have been very pleased with our choice.

Marissa S.

Woonsocket, RI

About Marissa

I am a recent graduate of Rhode Island College with a degree in both Music and Musical Theatre. With my music degree, I strongly focused on musical theatre pedagogy as well as classical music. I also trained extensively in dance and acting which I believe has helped me tremendously when teaching voice. I also have studied piano for the past 10 years and continue to train in voice.

My approach to teaching, whether it be voice or piano, is one with care and concern for the student. Each student is an individual and will take in knowledge in different ways. I always like to cater my teaching t
o whatever the students needs are. This requires observation and experimentation on my part. When I find what works, it makes for a more productive lesson for my student and I. In voice, I have a strong passion for musical theatre and contemporary genres. My focus is on students learning contemporary genres in the most healthy but stylistically accurate way. I believe the singer has to be multi-faceted to have a flourishing career in the world of music. To just sing one genre is unrealistic in this day in age. I want to help my students grow to be diverse singers who have a healthy technique that will get them through any career they may pursue.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide music. Student is required to have a full size keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
I have a main focus in musical theatre and contemporary style singing. I believe the versatile singer should be able to sing any genre with proper technique while being stylistically correct. I also like to incorporate my acting knowledge into lessons, helping students not only sing but act out the song. I also can teach classical voice.

Excellent Teacher for my 6 year old Son

Marissa is a terrific piano teacher. She has tons of patience and a great way of connecting with my son. He is a 6 year old boy who is very active and she is able to hold his attention and keep him interested in piano. It has been incredible watching his skill and confidence levels grow after each visit with Marissa. I would highly recommend Marissa to anyone with a young child who wants to learn piano.

Mia R.

Norfolk, MA

About Mia

I am a professional singer and actress with opera and musical theater credits. Singing is my passion! I love to sing, and I LOVE to teach others to sing! The human voice is the most natural instrument of all, and helping others to bring out the beauty of the natural instrument that lies within them is something to which I am very devoted. I like to make students feel comfortable and at ease in lessons, and you will find that I am very warm and friendly!

Every student is unique, with their own strengths, their own areas for improvement, and their own preference for certain styles of sing
ing. I can help you find what style makes your heart sing!

I have a broad range of credits, including the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof with Theodore Bikel (Tzeitel understudy), and Off-Broadway in Fiorello (Marie) and The Rose Tattoo (Flora). Among my many regional credits are Oliver at the Chiswick Park Theater in Sudbury, MA (Nancy), Camelot with Noel Harrison at the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, MA (Nimue/Guinevere understudy), and Is There Life After High School with Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Sharon Lawrence at the Burt Reynolds Theater in Jupiter, FL. I currently hold the post of Soloist at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Needham, and am a Guest Soloist for The Mother Church in Boston. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and have received additional training with many renowned pedagogues, including mezzo-soprano Sondra Kelly, and coaches Arlene Shrut from the Juilliard School, Michelle Alexander with Boston Lyric Opera, and Roger Malouf with the Metropolitan Opera.

My daughter's acting class with Mia was absolutely wonderful! She was very nervous going in because it was her first time trying out acting but she was immediately set at ease by Mia's warm and friendly personality. Mia also took the time to get to know my daughter and find out what her interests and goals were. Mia's enthusiasm for acting really inspired her and she is very excited about her upcoming classes.

Drumset · In studio
I took drum lessons from Jon U. for a little over a year, and loved it. The only reason our lessons stopped is because he moved.

On our first day, Jon's first question to me was, "What do you hope to learn from me and these lessons?" I couldn't read music and I had no rhythm, and that's all I hoped to learn. I was in my forties, and wanted this to be a hobby; it was never going to be anymore than that, but Jon didn't treat this as boring or a waste of his time.

Jon was patient, professional, fun. And he was a *teacher.* Each time I mastered an assignment, he'd write me a more difficult one, and I learned more about music and became a better player than I ever thought I would.

Jon isn't just qualified to teach the mechanics. He has a Ph.D., and my favorite part of our lessons was simply discussing what's "behind" the playing: the theory behind it; what it means; viewing and contemplating what music is and what it means to us. How it changes us.

Good musicians don't always make the best instructors, but Jon U. is one of the rare ones. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I took lessons with Jonathan for about 2 years. I had never played the drums before and he did a great job of teaching me. His teaching style is great. He manages to make the dry stuff fun and keep your attention, and he is very willing to change up his plans to help you get to your goals.

The atmosphere during lessons is great as well. Taking lessons with Jon is very comfortable and relaxing, so it becomes very easy to open up and really get into the drumming.

Couldn't recommend lessons with him any more.
