Charles N.

Raleigh, NC

About Charles

Charlie is a certified music teacher, who teaches in areas surrounding Clayton and travels to teach in the Raleigh and Knightdale areas. He first began teaching guitar and piano during his music st
udies at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS. At the university and after receiving his degree in music education, he has taught and performed in various musical settings and venues which has included the genres of classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk and country. Besides teaching and performing, Charlie also is a songwriter who writes songs for his groups performances and teaches his more advanced students songwriting.

Drawing upon his education and experiences as both performer and teacher, he strives to relate his background to his student's learning experiences and progress. As each student comes with his or her individual musical wants and interests, student lessons are designed to meet these needs of a particular student. Charlie has young students of ages 5 to 14 as well as students of upper ages. According to a student's level of musicianship (beginner, advanced or in between), students are taught how to read music, music theory in relation to their progress, chords, scales and how to write/compose their own songs. He has designed a method of teaching which is full of great musical exercises & fun illustrations for the young student to enjoy while learning skills on their instrument.

For example, students can began with simple fingerings of chords & beginning melodies played in slow rhythms to allow the student to develop at a comfortable pace. Students that can not read music notation begin simple reading exercises of note recognition, time signatures, note values, eye hand coordination and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
I design student lessons according the age, playing level and music related interests as lessons can cover a broad range of interests and musical styles. For my beginning students- to develop their understanding of playing chords and rhythms,
I teach chords as they relate to musical keys and some common rhythm patterns used in many popular songs.

For guitar students, I have designed & developed my own materials for guitar (sheets & accompanying CD) which guide students in practicing chords progressions, strum/rhythm patterns & scales/melodies in relation to chords. My students have shown much success in these methods of concentrating on developing that essential sense & feel for playing different rhythm styles. Piano instruction is centered on learning to read music notation and music theory as it relates to the student's progress.

As students advance, more emphasis is placed on improvising on melodies, different approaches to soloing and chord extensions and substitutions. Also, students are taught music theory as it relates to their progress to enable them to create their own music.

I have a good selection of method books and materials to fit each student's level of musicianship and choice of playing style(s) to extend upon their interests and goals.

My approach to teaching is to make lessons fun and enjoyable in a comfortable and relaxed setting to allow the student full
concentration on each lesson. But, also to provide the necessary guidance and encouragement to challenge and motivate students to improve and develop natural strengths and new skills.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a good selection of materials (many I've developed), extra instruments if needed and recording equipment. The student will need the instrument and an amp for electric guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Teach theory as relates to students progress- examples, chords as relate to major scales, understanding of I IV V chords
in popular music genres, develop knowledge of chords & rhythmic sense before learning songs. I teach in styles of blues,
rock. jazz, country and classical.

We enjoy having Mr. Charlie come to our house and teach our 5 year old son Xavier how to play the piano. He makes sure our son stays focused and goes at a pace that works for him. Xavier has learned a lot, and we are grateful to Mr. Charlie.

Eryn J.

Cameron, NC

About Eryn

Hello! My name is Eryn J., and I have been playing the lever harp professionally since 2005, and teaching beginner harp lessons since 2009. In my lessons I like to focus on playing technique and encou
ragement, and I offers lessons in sight reading, playing by ear, and harp with vocal accompaniment.

You might be surprised at the variety of music harp has to offer; i.e. my top three favorite songs to play on the harp are "Canon in D," "Hallelujah" by Jeff Buckley, and "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica! I can hold the lesson at my home office in Cameron, or I can drive to the student. A rental harp is available.

*** Lesson Details ***
Out of all the instruments I have played over the years (including piano, guitar, and violin), I have by far enjoyed playing the harp. It is the easiest and most forgiving instrument to play, whether you are a beginning learner with no prior training, or a seasoned musician.

I start out my students on playing technique, holding the harp, posture, etc. Once the basics are solidified, we move on to a much more fun stage: reading music and/or playing by ear, whichever the student prefers. Lessons can range from 30-60 minutes, depending on student attention span, the pace at which they are learning the basics, etc. Each student is going to have their own pace, varying prior musical knowledge, etc, and I prioritize each person's individuality and learning style.

*** Specialties ***
Celtic harp, classical harp, folk harp, rock harp, reading sheet music for beginners, playing by ear, playing by chords, playing with vocals.

Eryn has brought my daughter's love of the harp, appreciation of the harp and ability to play the harp to a whole new level. We had two years of Suzuki previously. I don't know what she does, but she has the ability to challenge, yet engage my child into playing the harp with enthusiasm.
