Lydia L.

Arlington, MA

About Lydia

I have experience teaching percussion to children from preschool through adults in their early thirties. I have recently graduated with a master’s degree in performance from the Longy School of Music of Bard College, where I had a two-year timpani assistantship to perform with the orchestra, had intense marimba and mallet training, along with drum set, and various orchestral percussion instruments.

For fun, I enjoy hand-drumming for some of the Boston Ballet’s modern dance classes. My passion and enthusiasm to share my knowledge of percussion is what makes me a great candidate for this pos
ition.

Learning a percussion instrument should be a balance of hard work and fun. I have a strong passion for teaching because I have been lucky enough to have had great music teachers. I feel that teaching and sharing music with others is the most important thing that a musician can do. My students produce great results, each overcoming their own set of obstacles and completing goals set specifically for their musical development. I hope to engage students in a structured yet fun and interactive environment in which they can approach any drum, marimba, triangle, tambourine, bicycle horn, cymbal, timpani, etc. in a confident manner to make the most of their learning experience.

Lydia was very welcoming and kind, and put me at ease during our first lesson. She knew I wanted to work on mallet percussion, and had a lesson plan ready for me on the marimba. She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!

Lydia's teaching style is fantastic! As an older learner, she was very patient and understanding with me while still helping me reach my goals. She taught me many different ways of playing and different styles. It is a pleasure to be taught by such a remarkable percussionist!

Bryan has been great to work with. He has a lot of patience, which is important for someone like me who has a very limited musical background. He is clearly well educated in singing and is able to impart his knowledge to his students. I believe that anyone who takes lessons with him has the potential to greatly improve.

Christien B.

Waltham, MA

About Christien

Hi! I recently earned a degree in Early Music Voice from the Longy School of Music of Bard College, and have studied voice with private teachers intermittently over the past two decades. I would like to aid those students who are interested in learning about music from medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods.

I also have a Master's in Cello Performance, and can teach cello at the beginner to upper intermediate level! My experience in teaching is with modern (standard) cello, but I can also teach the basics of baroque cello (with gut strings and a baroque bow). Gut strings can be finicky
, but their sound is warm and expressive. If you are interested to know more, just drop me a note! Another instrument I can teach is the Viola da Gamba, a very interesting early 6- or 7-string instrument with gut strings. (That's the instrument I'm holding in my profile picture!) This instrument is a bit like a cello crossed with a guitar. It's played with a bow, but the neck has frets. Playing the "gamba" (or "viol") can be a gymnastics workout for the left hand, but once you get the hang of it, you can play beautiful chords. This is the instrument that is featured in the French film "Tous les matins du monde".

Aside from music, I have taught English as a Foreign and Second Language (in Bulgaria with Peace Corps, in New Mexico with Berlitz, at the U. of New Mexico). I would be very pleased to help students of any age with reading, listening comprehension, and writing!

Lexington, MA

About Michael

I graduated with a 4.0 from Lexington High School, one of the top public high schools in the country. I got a 2380 out of 2400 on the SAT and did very well on AP tests and the SAT Subject Tests. I attended Harvard College where I graduated with a 3.98 GPA and a major in Economics. I now run a tech startup which makes educational apps for patients at hospitals. I am a good listener and work to personalize my teaching so each student gets the most out of it. If you work with me once, I think you'll see I'm good at what I do.
