Ruth F. Princeton, NJ

About Ruth

I have played piano since I was six years old, when my parents enrolled me in my first music classes. I continued my music education while going to elementary, middle, and high school. Ultimately, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Music from Butler University, located in Indianapolis, Indiana *** Lesson Details *** Music has been one of my greatest passions since I was a little girl, and teaching it is my favorite way to share my love of music. I teach students of all ages and skill levels from early beginners to experienced piano players who want to bring their performance to a higher level. I emphasize piano technique, musicianship, performance skills and music history. But I also use piano lessons to help my students develop life skills, such as concentration, focus, poise and

My 8 year old son has been taking piano lessons from Ruth for about 6 month now. She is wonderful with him. They do as much giggling as they do playing the piano but he is learning so much! My son will likely never be a spectacular pianist but he will learn to love music and playing for his own enjoyment from Ruth. She is giving him a tremendous gift that could last the rest of his life.
Michael M. Pennington, NJ

About Michael

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have been involved with music for many years. The instruments that I play include Trumpet, French Horn, Handbells, Organ, Voice, and Piano. I received my formal education at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, which is where I earned a B.A. degree with Honors in Music. In order to obtain my Honors, I chose to develop elementary lessons on Chinese folk music. In my Junior year of college, I performed a dual media recital in both Voice and Piano, and for my Senior year recital, I focused on giving a Vocal performance. These recitals demonstrated the musical talent and techniques that I had developed throughout my experience at college. In addition to my musical experiences in college, I have also learned about various pedagogical approaches through both

My daughter and I have started taking piano lessons about 3 months back and we are happy to say that our experience learning with Mike has been excellent. He has so much experience which he is able to use to help out novices like us who are just starting to learn. His patience and good humor is what we need the most at this stage. He helps us relax and encourages us to try again and again until we get the hang of it. He sets the pace according to our pace of learning and this helps us stay positive and motivated.

We recommend Mike to all prospective students. I am sure everyone would benefit from lessons with him. We are sure to learn from him for a long time to come if we manage not to overcome his patience.

I've been taking piano lessons with Mike for 2 years. He introduced me to new types of music and was always looking for pieces he thought I would enjoy. I learned a great deal of technique and skills as well as music theory to help me in my musical future. I appreciate all the time you spent with me. Thank you for the past two years.

Matthew S. Levittown, PA

About Matthew

I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university. I wish to help others make music an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine. *** Lesson Details *** For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my ...

Alexandra P. Princeton, NJ

About Alexandra

I am interested in teaching private lessons to each individual student - taking into account your goals, strengths, weaknesses, and background. I will never teach by a method that does not account for the unique qualities of each student. I use what I have learned through many years of musical study to teach you in the most efficient and beneficial way, based on YOUR needs. As a voice student, I will ask you about your taste in music, what your goals are as a singer, and encourage you to suggest repertoire you'd like to learn. In addition, I will do an assessment of your entire voice - from posture and breathing to articulation and expression - and introduce repertoire that will help you become a better singer. I am comfortable teaching pieces written in English, Latin, French, ...

I've never taken voice lessons before, so I didn't know what to expect. But Allie is great, very likeable. She really takes your preferences into considerations. We do breathing exercises, vocal warmups, and work on several songs at a time. I love the range of songs Allie has me work on: an Italian classical piece, a French pop song, a Broadway piece, a jazz piece, etc.

Rachel is confident and caring. She is extremely knowledgeable about correct breathing and singing technique. She's very patient and puts you immediately at east. Out of all the music lessons I've taken, piano and guitar; singing is the most personal. Rachel really helps you to get over any self consciousness. I've seen improvement after just a few sessions and I'm excited to continue on.

I have my two daughters take singing class with Rachel. My big one is not very enthusiastic about singing that much. But she thinks Rachel is a good teacher, being nice and strict at the same time.

On the other hand, my 5 year old little one loves singing and she likes Rachel very much. Normally she is pretty shy and needs a long time to build relationship with teachers. But with Rachel, I heard lots of good words from her after the first class. After 2nd lesson, she could use what she learned and teach me how to breathe and sing.

And I could tell that my daughters do improve in singing after a few classes. I am really happy about that.
Shane T. Lawrence Township, NJ

About Shane

Hello! I'm Shane and I would love to be your voice teacher! I am committed to uncovering the true potential that each singer possesses as well as helping their awareness as a musician. Regarding my private vocal and music theory students, I identify the individual needs and create a curriculum based on the the learning style of each student. Vocally, I include the following subjects with every student: relaxation, posture and alignment, breathing, phonation, support, registration, resonance, and articulation. It is extremely important that every student has a sense of achievement and success. Studio Lessons: I currently have a studio that enables me to audio or video record each lesson.

I am fairly new to singing, but Shane has helped me tremendously. I was unsure of what I actually wanted to do in voice lessons, but through his open communication and great teaching, he helped me find a path and I love to sing. He really shows an interest in you as a person as well as your voice. It is obvious that he is very well educated and experienced. I felt as though I could ask him anything and he would have the right answer. He is excellent at helping you develop your voice as well as how to use it in the most healthy efficient way possible. I would highly recommend him to everyone who is interested in voice lessons, either for pleasure or for a career path. I am thrilled with the work Shane has done for me just after a few lessons, and I can't wait for another.
