I am currently teaching most piano lessons online. I am also available for a few in-person lessons in my home studio, if certain safety precautions are followed... more about that at the end of this section.

Whether your lessons are online or in person, a typical lesson with me will include things like this:

-The student plays what they have practiced, and we work on any difficult areas and techniques for playing better.

-I introduce new lesson material, asking questions to make sure my student understands.

-We work on music theory, sight reading, good posture, and helpful practice techniques.

-I expect my students to practice every day, just as I do. It is the only way to become proficient.

- - - - - - - - - -

For online lessons, you may use the online platform provided by TakeLessons, or we can use Zoom. Most of my students are using Zoom.

You will need to order lesson books before your first lesson. Please contact me after you sign up to discuss

Melody is awesome! She was able to answer my myriad of questions at my first lesson and still had time to teach me new things that have really helped me. She was very personable, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I have no doubt she is going to help me become the best piano player I can be.

With 15 years of teaching experience and over 20 years performance experience, I have dedicated my entire life to the violin and finding innovative, creative, and effective ways of teaching and learning. In my studio, students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds are welcome! I have experience teaching beginners (both child and adult) all the way to students at the university level. I strive to create lessons and materials that cater to the uniqueness of each student and their goals. A love of music and the instrument will always be at the forefront of the learning experience!

Ms. Clarice is an all-star teacher and a extremely talented violinist. I had the honor of working with Clarice as an undergrad student at Arizona State University. Clarice was the teaching assistant for Danwen Jiang's Violin Studio. Clarice helped shape me to the violinist I am today, she helped instill a confidence in me I did not have before. She helped bring out passion to my playing in my performances. Clarice has a vast knowledge of violin pedagogy, technique, repertoire and music theory. Ms. Clarice loves each of her students and it shows through her character, you can tell she truly loves what she does and has a passion for teaching music. I am happy to call her not only my former but my friend as well. if you are looking for a teacher who makes learning fun and pushes you to greatness, then I highly recommend working with Clarice Collins!

Want to learn bluegrass, old-time, or Irish fiddling? With 18 years playing fiddle and 10 years teaching, I have the experience to help a beginner gain basic skills or an advanced student analyze bowing patterns, moving double stops, and more. From the student who is picking up the fiddle for the first time to the fiddler who’s been playing their whole life, I hope to inspire a love for traditional fiddle music and culture.

About Cody

I was first inspired to play the fiddle by my grandfather, Tom Smith. Many of my cousins started learning traditional instruments around the same time and we had a lot of fun jamming at family gatherings and at music festivals in our home state of Indiana. In 2015 I was proud to carry the family tra

Growing up and taking music classes I have always struggled with grasping the concept of music and instruments. Currently a college student with a busy schedule, Cody has helped me accomplish a lot with the time I have been taking lessons with him. Coming from never being able to grasp music to starting to play some songs and understanding theory more, progress has really shown. Learning from Cody will give you a fun, patient, and an exciting environment that will keep you wanting to learn more. Cody is extremely talented, very nice, and makes music easy! I would suggest if anyone would want to learn from the best, learn from Cody!
Chad C.
After years of music classes taken in school, i have really struggled to grasp the concept of learning instruments and the basic fundamentals of music. Currently a college student with a busy schedule, Cody has really changed me from a person who always wanted to play the fiddle to actually accomplishing my goals of playing songs and understanding theory and the instrument more. I would 100% recommend anyone who wants to learn to play the fiddle to reach out and give it a shot. Cody is a phenomenal musician that can play tunes that will make your jaw drop. You will learn from the best teacher who is very kind and considerate of being a beginner and helping you accomplish your goals!
Peggy H.
I learned a lot of basics in my very first lesson ever, and am excited to continue to learn with Cody. He's confident, calm and friendly and gave me more information than I thought I'd get in one quick lesson. I look forward to next week!

My teaching curriculum emphasizes on proper breathing and vocal placement to ensure vocal improvement within a few weeks of lessons. All of these terms may sound scary, but I believe that singing should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life and those around you. I teach all genres of music and specialize in audition preparation. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a blast.

About Bebé

I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Broward College with an Associates Degree in Music Technology and dual -majoring in Vocal Performance. My primary instruments are Voice and Piano, but I also play guitar and trumpet. All of my students can exp

Bebé is one of the best voice teachers I have ever had. I have had a few instructors who just run you through exercises and make you sing random songs, but Bebé takes the time to explain everything very thoroughly. She is very respectful and very flexible when it comes to scheduling. All you have to do is communicate any concerns with her and she makes sure to go out of her way to accommodate all of your needs. I have enjoyed every lesson that I have had with her and even on days where I don’t have the energy, she always finds a way to prep me up. I couldn’t have asked for a better teach and my voice has grown so much. I find it way easier to sing and hit notes that I had trouble with when first starting off. I recommended her to a few of my friends and will continue to do so to anyone looking for an experienced and amazing teacher.

Practice Tips: Vocal Warm-Ups & Technique

Structuring your vocal warm-ups and practice between lessons can make a huge impact on your success. Here, Bloomfield, NJ teacher Zachary B. shares some helpful tips... In my experience, many students make progress during a lesson and often return to the next lesson with the new skills forgotten. Merely practicing songs, without specific structure usually leads to singing the song repeatedly. While this does familiarize you with the song, it does not help you improve from a technical st …
