Barbara D.

Twinsburg, OH

About Barbara

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood.

Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that,
you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument!

In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ensembles. Any combination of string instruments you are working with, I will work with your group to improve your cohesiveness and your musical style.

Nice to have the one on one teaching experience. If you have an issue she can stop you right on the spot that is giving you an issue and tell you what your are doing incorrectly. She also tells you what you are doing right.

She was very patient with me (a brand new student). She showed me a lot of tips and gave me insight to the violin that I did not know. Definitely worth the lesson

Pianists & other Musicians continue exploring here:
A professional music venue hosts spring and fall recitals; Instruction from a paid performer; I hold a Master of Music degree and an Ohio Teaching Certificate!
*** Lesson Details ***
As one of my students, you can come to expect a friendly welcome at the beginning of the lesson and then throughout expect our main goal to be helping you make your best music possible. I possess a wealth of knowledge
and skill collected from decades of practice, master classes, winning competitions, earning degrees and performing both in bands and as a solo artist.
I am relaxed and happy, disciplined and product-oriented while at the same time understanding the difference between practicing for improvement and statically repeating the same exercise or passage over and over. We want to make the most of our time during the lesson and your practice sessions by focusing on achieving your goals quickly.

I currently teach music in the Stow-Munroe Falls City School District and teach private lessons out of my home studio in the Garfield/Maple/Independence/Valley View area.

*** Hello visiting students and people! Thanks for visiting my takelessons site! Before you get details about me as a concert pianist and teacher, I would like to kindly add an important announcement!

Please DO NOT book too many lessons at once! Sometimes students and teachers need to determine if they are good matches. Same for me: in order for me to be a best teacher for you, we only need one trial lesson to get to know each other:D

So, after you read about me and you think I will be the be
st match for you, please just book ONE LESSON, which will serve as a "trial lesson" And after that, if you like me and want to continue more lessons, then we will discuss further details about lessons:D

Thanks again! and I hope to hear from you soon!

Lessons with SooJi is very satisfying. I also went to one of her concerts few weeks ago. She played Totentanz with the orchestra. Her piano playing was very enjoyable, moving, and passionate, inspiring me to only be in the moment to soulfully listen and feel Soo Ji's beautiful and artful expression. She is an exquisitely talented young pianist.

Excellent with children and I sure just as great with adults. My daughter LOVES and looks forward to her piano lessons with "Ms SooJi" although she is not entirely thrilled with her daily practice at home. SooJi provides excellent tips for helping her with tough spots and is equally challenging and encouraging. She is the best thing that happened for my 7 yr old who tends to want to quit when the going gets rough with anything, and it is a joy to hear how much she has learned in a year! I wish she could stick around long enough to teach my younger one as well. She is reliable and will go out of her way to provide make up lessons if needed. We have lessons in person during the school year and Skype lessons in the summer. I was initially skeptical about the quality of the Skype lessons when she suggested it, however by the end of the summer, I was totally surprised at how much my daughter learned, and I was not disappointed in the quality of the lessons.

Pianist Spotlight: How Ben Folds Brought the Piano Back to Pop
Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Stevie Wonder—so many names top the list of influential piano players in music history. But for a while there, as dance, metal, and grunge took center stage, piano was relegated to the sidelines. One artist who changed that, however, was Ben Folds. When he hit the scene with his band Ben Folds Five in the mid-90s, a new musical sound emerged—pop heavily infused with piano. Who is Ben Folds? Ben Folds grew up in in North Carolina listening to piano greats l

Learning to Read Music: An Introduction for Singers
Learning to read music can be a daunting task for beginner singers! Here, Ann Arbor, MI voice teacher Elaina R. shows you how to get started...   Not to point out the obvious, but as singers, we don’t have keys on our instrument. We don’t have buttons that emit the same pitch every time they are pressed. Most of us don’t have perfect pitch, either. This makes learning to read music quite different for singers than for other musicians. Not only do singers deal with learning how
