Max S.

West Hartford, CT

About Max

I am a performing musician who is passionate about helping students achieve their goals.

I currently perform over fifty concerts a year with the Asylum Quartet, an award-winning ensemble acclaimed for virtuosity, creativity, and innovation. I have also performed with the Juilliard Orchestra, the U.S. Coast Guard Band, and International Opera Theater. As tenor saxophonist in the Ineo Quartet, I received honors in the J.C. Arriaga, Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA) chamber music competitions. I hold a Master's in Music from The Hartt Sc
hool and a Bachelor of Music summa cum laude from Arizona State University (ASU).

I have eight years of private teaching experience. Additionally, I completed a ten-week private teaching mentorship at the Hartt Community Division with saxophone instructor Sheri Brown.

Though I specialize in saxophone, I also love teaching beginning and intermediate piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strive to make lessons fun, challenging, and inspiring. I love teaching students of all levels.

Here is my teaching philosophy in more detail:

Why learn music? Music shares many the benefits of other subjects. Learning an instrument teaches multi-level techniques of problem solving, responsibility, teamwork, literacy, and self-expression. But unlike any other subject, music unites three domains of learning: psychomotor (physical motion), cognitive (analytical thought), and aesthetic (assessment of artistic beauty). Music is a mode of self-expression shared by all cultures - this powerful universality suggests that music should be part of a well-rounded education. At its most basic, music requires us to learn to listen. The process of listening and learning from others is fundamental to human civilization, and music helps us develop listening skills to their full potential.

Why learn the saxophone? Invented in 1856, the saxophone is a relatively young instrument. Yet in its short history, the saxophone has rocketed to immense popularity. The saxophone plays well with others - in jazz combos and big bands, concert bands, saxophone quartets, and reed quintets - and projects effortlessly as a solo instrument. A hybrid between woodwind and brass instruments, the instrument is capable of the softest murmurs, the loudest bellows and honks, lovely singing lines, agile leaps and mesmerizing runs, and much more. Studying the saxophone offers the student access to stylistic variety and rich performance traditions second to none. Yet as a young instrument, the saxophone beckons with endless unexplored possibilities to the creative performer.

Why learn with me? The famous violin teacher Shinichi Suzuki wondered, "Japanese children can all speak Japanese!...How, by what means, does this come about?" We all now know the answer. Japanese children have abundant access to great models of Japanese-speaking: the adults around them. So as a teacher, I seek to provide a great model of saxophone playing. I rely on teaching by example, and encourage students to learn by ear whenever possible. In conjunction with ear training, I address fundamentals (breathing, tone production, articulation, voicing, reading music, and technique) in every lesson, so that students develop great technical ability on the instrument. Finally, I hope to provide a model of responsibility, empathy, and creativity, which I believe are central to our development as musicians and people.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a working saxophone with appropriate mouthpiece and reeds (with my help if needed!), a music stand, and other lesson materials (metronome, tuner, notebook, method books / pieces, personal recording device, etc.). I often provide handouts of music and exercises in lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical saxophone, but also have experience performing, studying, and teaching jazz. My goal is to give students a solid set of fundamentals in saxophone playing, forge strong aural and reading skills, and engender a broad curiosity in listening habits. I believe modeling great playing is key. Of course, I want students to internalize and replicate a good saxophone sound. But I also want students to form the critical listening skills of mimicking and blending with other musicians. I believe these things will enable them to excel as musicians in any field.

John A.

New Milford, CT

I'm a product of the piano school of Tobias Matthay at the Royal College of music in London. I studied with two of his proteges, Frank Mannheimer and Denise Lassimone, as well as Trinity College of Music, London. I can teach anyone from preschoolers who can't read music to advanced colleagues.

About John

My job is to get your child crazy about the piano. If you have to nag your child to play, something is wrong. The basics are, of course, important, but until you have gotten the child to accept and love the piano as an object of enjoyment, all that practicing will go nowhere.

How do I do it?

I think it's easier to learn the piano if you are having fun, and that means playing music that you like.

You can always choose what you will play in lessons, and lessons are designed around your preferences, and move at a pace comfortable to you. The basics are still taught, but at a pace that yo
ur child finds comfortable. The result of this is that I will get your child to go the piano and play by themselves with no nagging.

I have had the complete classical conservatory experience, yet that doesn't mean I expect that of you in any way, especially kids.

For children, the best start involves games and immediate playing to give the child a taste of the real joy of making music. Reading exercises have their place, but not at the very beginning.

I want you to play a song you know and enjoy your first lesson, and I can easily help you do that.

It's in your interest to play meaningful music, (to you) right away. It is possible for anyone can play music far more complex than what they can read on a page, so my first goal is to get you started playing real songs on your first lesson.

Education: BA University of California, Berkeley. Graduate work at University of Southern California Film School, Trinity College of Music, London.
Emmy Award winner, music direction. Broadway veteran. Recordings with American Symphony Orchestra released Sterling Records.
Advanced Piano lessons using the European tradition, pupil of Tobias Matthay School (London) and Denise Lassimone (Paris)

*** Lesson Details ***
If you're a beginner, I want you to start playing right away, with less emphasis on deciphering sheet music and more on the immediate physical sense of the keyboard. You have to enjoy playing by any means before you are inundated with the page. Reading music follows soon, but not before you can play music you like.
If you're more advanced, I can help you with technical development, and begin to widen your musical senses.

*** Studio Equipment ***
1926 Steinway A

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide Books and Musical Literature. Students must have instrument, electronic or acoustic.

*** Specialties ***
I teach any style of music that you prefer. I also accept students with disabilities and special needs.

John has been teaching my 6 year old daughter for 3 months now and not only has he done a tremendous job gauging her abilities and teaching her but he has made it so much fun she wants to play the piano all the time.

John's biggest strengths are his patience, understanding and seeming endless facility with music. I read music but not fast enough to allow me to play good pieces, so John translates everything into physical movements. This makes it very easy to play interesting music, which makes me want to play more. I think he has shown me how learn, how to refine things so they are satisfying. I highly recommend him as a teacher, for beginners or advanced.

My son is six years old and has been taking piano lessons with John for six months. John is a unique and engaging teacher. His extensive knowledge of music and skill at the keyboard were apparent from the beginning. He can easily demonstrate a multitude of songs and then teach them on the spot. My son is excited to play a "whole song," be it Sponge Bob or Beethoven. John's teach-by-numbers technique appeals to my son's love of numbers and patterns yet he is also quickly learning how to read sheet music. John really is skilled at disguising a lesson on technique or theory as a game. He is goofy while at the same time encouraging and supportive of my son. He keeps it light, fun, and skill appropriate. Since he comes to our home, I also appreciate John's focus on the lesson - he arrives and departs in a timely manner. I highly recommend John as a piano teacher.

Alan S.

Falls Village, CT

When it comes to the piano each instrument is different and has its own touch and tone quality. The pianist must be a good musician before being an instrumentalist. I work with my students to produce the fullest tone and "legato" touch possible. One must be extremely sensitive to the piano's dynamics, and listen carefully.

Dale B.

Wallingford, CT

I have been playing piano for over 20 years and have been teaching since 2008. I approach lessons using a chordal method of learning, which gets students to play more advanced level modern pieces very quickly. I have performed as a solo pianist at venues across the state, most recently at the Shubert Theater in New Haven, CT.

About Dale

Dale R. B. is a private teacher, musician, conductor, clinician, and rising composer for video games from West Hartford, Connecticut. He is currently accepting new students and teaching private lessons in piano, guitar, percussion, and composition for students of all ages in both Hartford and New Haven counties.

Dale received his Bachelor of Arts in Percussion degree from the University of Connecticut in May of 2012 and was an active member of both the university's Winds and Percussion Ensembles. In his studies, he has taken advanced courses in composition, orchestration, conducting, percu
ssion technique, and brass technique. He has 13 years experience in percussion, 15 years experience in guitar, and 22 years experience in piano. Dale's teachers include Nancy Campagnola, Ronald Blouin, Jacqueline Rodriguez, Peter Coutsouridis, JC Caillouette, acclaimed marimbist Haruka Fujii, American Symphony Orchestra percussionist Javier Diaz, and orchestral composer Kenneth Fuchs, who has twice been nominated for a Grammy award.

Dale once held a freelance instrumental composer for Ear Goo Inc. in New York City, Here Dale wrote multi-genre works for film, television, promotional trailers, and advertisements. His vast clientele included household names such as Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Sony, Revlon, and Coca-Cola. Dale is currently represented by Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), a world-renowned performing rights organization that also represents artists such as Eminem, Shakira, and Maroon 5. His original music for marching band was performed on a weekly basis during the 2012 competitive season in USSBA Class III competitions around Connecticut by the Trojan Marching Band at Lyman Hall High School, where he held a position as their percussion instructor.

As a clinician, Dale has been asked on an annual basis to judge timpani, mallet percussion, and snare drum at several Regional and All-State Music Festivals around the state since 2009. He has also given presentations on the importance of installing/maintaining a music and arts curriculum in the Connecticut public school system as well as the history and proper care of mallet percussion instruments.

As a performing musician, Dale has appeared in several venues across the state, most recently at the storied Shubert Theater in New Haven, which hosted the world premiere of Dale's "Les Reves de Jeunesse Oubliée," an original piano solo that was well-received. He hosted his first Composition Recital on April 3, 2012 at the Von Der Mehden Recital Hall, where Dale showcased six live, original works, including a piano solo, a euphonium solo, a woodwind sextet, and a percussion quartet. Dale has played in live productions and musicals with both the Connecticut Repertory Theater and the Church of the Resurrection Youth Group, while winning numerous awards for his musicianship, including Lyman Hall’s “Outstanding Musician Award” for three consecutive years. Among numerous charitable events he has partaken in, Dale performed selected works by marimbist Daniel Berg on the piano as part of the Hamden Academy’s annual canned food drive, where together they raised over 500 cans of food for those without homes. Outside of music, Dale’s interests include baseball, video games, creative writing, jogging, and the ocean.

As a private teacher, Dale strives to ignite a passion for classical and instrumental music regardless of the instrument, and firmly believes that the art of making music is both satisfying and rewarding for both the short and the long-term. Because there are so many different types and genres out there, he knows that music is something every person can enjoy regardless of their differences, and so his ultimate goal for each and every pupil is to inspire and cultivate a newfound appreciation for the musical world.

I have a bachelor in vocal performance from Valley Forge Christian College. I have sung since I was 3. I have played flute for 17 years, Euphonium for 7 years, and piano for 10 years.
