HIghly Reccomended

Jeffrey is definitely a great music coach he has been working with me on my vocals and helping me key in on what i need to work on to get where I want to be. The vocal exercises and songs that he suggest i work on is a big help. The take home work he gives is definitely a big help. Above all of that his dedication to his work I can say is strong and I like it. I definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a coach who has the experience and can give you that push in the direction you wanna be I say book him you wont regret it!

This Teacher has Great knowledge

I have been taking lessons with Jefferey R. for a lil over a month now and i must say when i first scheduled the lesson i was skeptical of how the lesson would go. but after working with him i have to say he is very skilled in vocal training. He has helped me explore what my voice can do, is teaching me the fundamentals and what it takes to sing on a professional level. If any student is serious about improving their vocal skills and moving to the next level... i would refer them to Jefferey R.

Daniel C.

Cleveland, OH

About Daniel

I am recent graduate of Music Composition and Theory from Antioch College, and I am a veteran of many bands, having performed in some of the largest venues around the country. I favor a 'learning through experience' instruction style where my students can gain an in-depth understanding of music through the practice of their instrument. My students will quickly and simply learn the essentials of music theory, an understanding of what musical concepts are right for each situation and why, and the ability to compose and improvise musically while they are gaining the technical abilities and skills to flawlessly perform on their instrument. *** Lesson Details *** My students will learn about scale, harmony, and its correct application. I will instruct them to quickly grasp the lay-out of ...

Instructor is very good and easy to work with. I seem to be making progress (slowly).However, I found an "app" called ultimate guitar chords that give fingering for all notes and lets you hear alternate (simpler) fingering to test how it would sound.Depending on how that comes out will may change my plans to continue with lessons after the first four.

Julian is very patient, kind, understanding and helpful -- communicates extremely well to our ten year old girl who has been diagnosed mild ADHD (not severe enough to merit special education services, but she receives accomodations at school to help her stay on task, complete work, etc. -- e.g., extra time on tests). Julian instructs her in such an excellent manner that she is able to focus well and comprehend directions clearly. We would like to know if Julian has any motivational strategies to help Arryanna who has difficulty staying on task for an appropriate length of time in practice times at home.

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

My son has been taking lessons for several years with Barb. His skills and technique improved dramatically when he began and have continue to improve over the years. He received the "most improved" award in orchestra after his first year of lessons. He performs challenging music well at annual recitals and in Akron Youth Philharmonic with Barb's guidance. Barb is encouraging during lessons, yet always points out specific things that need attention for the next week. I highly recommend her.
