I have over 20 years experience teaching flute players ranging from beginners through advanced. We work hard and have a lot of fun!

Many of my students have had successful auditions for honor/state groups and youth orchestras, and have won scholarships for college. My local students perform several times throughout the year in studio recitals, local flute events and giving back to the community. I work with my online students to find ways for them to perform as well.

I love teaching and watching my student achieve new goals and play things they thought were impossible. Everything takes work, but with repetition, encouragement, and fun, it is all possible!

About Kerri

I believe that each student will be successful when they enjoy learning and experience success. It is my privilege to work with students to achieve their goals in an encouraging, fun, hard-working environment. I have worked for over 20 years with many different kinds of students. Some enjoy play

I do not have enough positive words to say about Kerri. She is AMAZING and WONDERFUL. I was very skeptical of taking lessons from someone I found randomly on the internet but turned out she has been an incredible teacher and awesome mentor. She has taught me to play high notes in just two lessons. I am a beginner student and she has been so patient and given me great tactics to get my embouchure and aperture correct. I look forward to every lesson with her and am excited to practice! She is the most incredible teacher EVER! If you need or want to learn flute then shop no further as she knows so much about flutes, music, and just generally a very warm and incredible teacher.

Great 1st lesson and covered a lot in only 45 minutes. Very knowledgeable and professional. Looking forward to some practice time and my next lesson with Riley.
Sharla
Event after more than 13 years of guitar instruction with Riley, there is always a new technique or song structure lesson to learn. He knows an incredible amount about music, performance, and (to be honest) living a good life. He is an inspiration to me both musically and personally, and his enthusiasm for both is unmatched.
Eric
In my opinion, I have very little natural talent for music. I hadn't played an instrument with any proficiency in the past. Well, I had played air guitar and guitar hero before, but neither of them really prepared me for actually playing a guitar. Sometimes I'd sing in the safety of my commute to work, but that's about it.

Riley helped me pick a guitar, gave me a book, and play along recordings. He had me playing classic chords in about two lessons. I can now read guitar music and have come up with some of my own tunes. I wasnt a very good student at first, but I showed up for my lessons. Just that took me a long way until I actually wanted to practice and really started to enjoy my guitar.

I was missing something in my life - all I did was work, eat, and sleep. I hadn't considered music as an outlet. My wife just signed me up one night and then told me I was going to learn something new. I was kind of mad at her at first (and hence my resistance to practicing), but I'm really glad she did that for me - and I thank her every time I play guitar.

Riley is great - he has a ton of patience with me. Considering that he went to one of the best guitar schools in the country (MIT/GIT), and can pretty much play wherever he wants, this really shows how much he loves to teach. Riley can play the obscure tune, pop, metal, classical guitar (he's got me on Beethoven now), and he even played yngvei with serious proficiency. The man has mastered the guitar and wants to teach. He is a working musician, and has had gigs every week that I've known him. He understands the music business, so he can give sound advice if you want a music career. So far as lessons go, it's just a matter of practicing what he tells you. There is no guitar, amp, or pick that can make you sound better. But Riley can.

I wish I (or my wife) had signed me up a long time ago. Best money I spend each month. Anyway, I better get back to practicing.

Hi! I've been teaching Strings (violin, viola, cello) and Music Theory for ten years. I've taught in stores and currently teach in a private school.

While I push my students to do their best, I am also very relaxed. Lessons should be fun, as well as educational. I hold my students to a high standard but am also very patient. No matter what, students always take something away at the end of the lesson.

I can also prepare students for NYSSMA, and have had many students who have had perfect scores. I make sure all my students know all the scales for their skill level, as well as working on challenging repertoire.

I can teach all skill levels and ages, from young children to adults of any age. It's never too late to pick up a violin!

I had guitar and voice classes and they were awesome. He is patient with students, and helps you to grow fast and easy with his methods.
Dan
I came to Paul for some voice lessons before my band entered the studio. Not only did he help me improve my voice and ear training, but he gave me many tools to improve my timing, vocal range, and knowledge of theory. I highly recommend him!
Soni
This was my first experience with on line teaching and it was great. I had tried reading the books and watching some videos on You Tube and was not making progress. Just a few minutes with Paul and what I couldn't figure out suddenly made sense.

Looking forward to next week.

"Kirk is excellent...I can't emphasize that enough. My daughter is 11 and he is beyond patient with her. He teaches by guiding her and letting her find her own answer. She really likes writing songs so he's supported that in his lessons by using what she comes up with during the week in between for the next lesson, weaving it into what he's teaching her for the day. I also really appreciate how he works on form with her, which is key to being a good guitarist and again it is through example, guiding her , and explaining things in ways that make sense to her. He has a very calm and relaxed demeanor. Also he's in a master's program for music, guitar concentration, so he really knows all aspects of it. I am taking classic guitar lessons once I can afford it. Kirk is one of the best teachers I've worked with and I recommend him for anyone. Thanks, Kirk!"

"I have been taking guitar lessons with Ahmad for at least five years now and have become not only a much more knowledgeable guitar player, but also a more confident one. My favorite thing about lessons with Ahmad is how he teaches in a multifaceted way while also catering to your musical interests. You are never simply learning songs - you are also learning how to read music and the theory behind the music you are learning. I would highly recommend Ahmad to any beginner or even an intermediate to advanced musician - Ahmad is immensely talented and you will never leave his lessons without learning something new! He is far and away the best guitar teacher I have ever worked with!"

"Nancy is awesome! I'm so happy I have this opportunity to tell everyone what a really great person and teacher she is. She's really demanding (but in a nice way) and knows her stuff technically, but she's also really encouraging and kind and I feel like she "gets" her students.

I'm going into my junior year at Cornell where I'm studying pre-med, and believe it or not I really feel like voice lessons with Nancy helped me get here. I love singing, but never had much confidence. I started taking lessons with Nancy my senior year in high school and she helped me sing so much better than I ever thought i could. She was really supportive of my song-writing too. I ended up getting a good part in the school musical (I went to a super competitive high school too) and performing my own songs at a couple of local venues.

Then as part of my college applications she suggested that I include a recording of me performing some French art songs by Claude Debussy. Not that I was a classical singer or was even going to study music seriously in college, but my family is French and I really like the poetry of Paul Verlaine. Nancy introduced me to some cool Debussy settings of Verlaine poems. I thought the songs would be way too hard for me, but with Nancy's help I actually sang them really well and did a good recording that I think helped set me apart in my college applications.

Now when I come back home I always have a few lessons with Nancy. (I still compose and perform my own songs) And don't tell anyone, but she's a lot better than any of the voice teachers at Cornell! Not naming names of course."

"Arlys is a truly gifted teacher and singer with a contagious passion for singing and music!!

I began taking weekly singing lessons with Arlys on November 23,2013. As a result of our lessons my voice has quickly transformed from struggling to stay in key and hitting notes to a strong and confident instrument to accompany my guitar playing. Arlys is a amazingly gifted teacher and singer!! She has a true passion for music and art which was transparent from the moment I met her. She is very friendly and approachable. With in our lessons she does a excellent job of blending the scientific aspects of singing with proper body mechanics and posture with the elements of emotion and artistic expression. In addition she tailors each lesson to my individual understanding and ability. It is truly a pleasure to learn from Arlys! Our lessons are equal parts, vocal exercises, singing and laughing! I would highly recommend Arlys to singers of all levels and abilities. Thank you so much Arlys I truly appreciate all the wonderful work you do!!"
