About Ray
Hello!

My name is Ray, I'm 31 years old, and was born in Queens, NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at the Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. During this program I was introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer.

I've been successfully teaching many instruments and proficiency levels for approximately 16 years now, and can say with pride that teaching is my passion, and I anticipate it remaining a very important part of my life.

I enjoy reading nonfiction books on science, math, and philosophy.

*** Lesson Details ***
My music lessons are unique for three main reasons:

1. I h
ave a very deep understanding of music, sound, and theory, and feel music to be one of my native languages.

2. I have devoted considerable amounts of time and energy studying neuroscience, which has greatly improved my understanding of the learning process.

3. I have been blessed with the tremendous amount of patience necessary to guide a student through the necessary steps it takes to learn at whatever pace is optimal, in order to maximize the efficiency of the learning process for each individual.

*** Equipment ***
Students must have their own instrument, and purchase their own materials (books, etc). From time to time I make my way to a local music shop, and am happy to purchase materials for reimbursement.

*** Specialties ***
Classical music is my background, and what I believe to be the most cognitively and emotionally fulfilling style of music to listen to, study, and play. That said, I'm also a big fan of pop music (as well as other genres), and encourage students to enjoy, for example, learning their favorite songs from the radio.

My understanding of music theory is extremely thorough, and I'm happy to incorporate as much or as little of it as the student's interest dictates, nevertheless maintaining the minimal amount of theory necessary to get the most out of learning music and the instrument.

Thanks for checking out my profile! Please contact me with any additional questions you may have, as well as to inquire about day/time availability. I'll do my best to get back to you right away (usually within a few hours).

My son and daughter both take from Ray and they love him!!! My daughter started with him after she had had 2 other teachers and she improved immediately. She loves going to Ray because he teaches her to play the songs that she likes. Now she plays so many songs for memory!! My son loves going to piano and is always excited to see Ray.

Allenhurst, NJ

View Full Profile

Beginner & intermediate violin practices include the Suzuki methods, duets, theory, and an understanding of the violin as a whole. I will encourage students to eventually learn compositions of their choosing.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

About Neil D.

Boerne, TX
View Full Profile

Please let me know if you ever have any questions about equipment and accessories needed!

About Neil
I am a music educator of 13 years: I have taught both middle school band and choir to at-risk youth, as well as elementary music at a private Christian academy. My principal instrument is the saxophone (which I began playing in 1990), and I play many other instruments. As for my formal education: I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree in 2005 from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Master of Music Education degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, 2010).

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to create life-long musicians...
I focus on the needs and interests of my students, thereby representing all musical genres and including all cultures.
My lessons are structured into activities that incorporate various aspects of music appreciation:
Music theory, music history, music technology, perfor
mance practice, etc. (making such lessons comprehensive)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Everyone needs their own instrument. In my studio, I have to keyboards side-by-side so that the student can both see and hear what I am teaching without ever swapping seats. As for percussion, my practice pad station serves for warm-up rudiments, whereas I have 2 drum-sets facing each other so that again, students can both see & hear what I am doing without needing to spend lesson time switching seats. For all other instruments, I recommend buying new for any brand that is not among the top 3 brands for that instrument...this ensures a working instrument in which to learn from and practice on without necessarily spending top dollar.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I always bring my instrument, metronome, tuner, music stand and stand for my instrument, including lesson materials and supplies.

*** Specialties ***
All genres, all styles & all cultures! I teach students of all ages--mostly at my home studio, but I also travel to students' homes, churches, and, as an alternative during the Summer only, I am willing to meet with students in the Practice Rooms in the Fine Arts Building at UTSA.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist, violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I have been teaching for over 15 years - I love my students, and I want to give my best for their best learning. My philosophy in music is not just learning notes, but sharing thoughts and musical ideas that will enrich the learning process. Many of my students have succeeded in orchestra auditions, competitions, and festivals. I have been doing ABRSM and Trinity exams from grade 1 through grade 8, as well as the performance certificate exam. Don't you be pressured by moving on to another teacher after having a lesson with me. I totally understand since I was in the same situation previously. Everyone has reasons that they can't tell to their teacher! :)

About Stella
Doesn't matter if you think you are a slow learner. I will go through with you step by step to achieve what you want. I will pace my teaching depending on your learning speed! That means, practice practice practice!

At this moment, I'm writing my dissertation for my Doctorate of Musical Arts degree at the University of Arizona. I love teaching, and I have been teaching for over 15 years. My primary focus has been teaching and performing violin around the world as a chamber musician - England, Scotland, Italy, France, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, China, Thailand, Timor Leste, Singapore, and the Philippines.

I am an official pianist at my church - I love improvising, accompanying songs, for example, Suzuki method books, church songs, or folk songs and anything!!

About April F.

San Antonio, TX

When it comes to violin I use both book and audio. I want to help my students learn to not only read the music but to also hear and feel it. I have been teaching this way for the last few years and found that my students have a deeper understanding of the music by learning the see with their ears. Each student is tasked with coming up with goals that they want to reach, goals their parents would like for them to reach and from there a personalized path for learning is created and followed.

About April
I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music between schools, the San Diego Youth Orchestra. I currently work with several students with special needs such as Autism and other Neurological delays. My son is Autistic and music was a great way for him to express himself. I found that the other children I work with on the spectrum have more abilities to express themselves through music then with words. I also work with students that are not yet comfortable with themselves and getting them to breath and enjoy the music helps bring them out of their shells.

I regularly find myself jamming o
ut with another music instructor every chance we get. Music is a great relief and enjoyment that I want to share with as many people as I can. I am currently in college getting my Bachelors degree in History with a minor in Music.

About Helen S.

Close

The main goal of my teaching is to help students express themselves through their music. I tailor my teaching to each individual student, according to their personality, physiology and current needs. While giving students structure and discipline to play with a healthy posture, sound and intonation, it is also important to keep that same sense of wonder and discovery as when first hearing a new piece of music.

About Helen
[Education]
I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the Korea National University of Arts. After that, I came to the US to study at Mannes School of Music with Daniel Panner, and at New England Conservatory in Boston with Dimitri Murrath. I graduated in 2014 with a Master of Music from New England Conservatory. I took Masterclasses with Kim Kashkashian, Roberto Diaz, Steven Tenenbom, CJ Chang, and James Dunham.
In the field of education, I completed Suzuki Teaching Certification in Hartford, CT.
[Teaching experience]
I am currently on the viola faculty of San Francisco Conservatory of Music pre-college. Before that, I taught at Encore Chamber Music in Cleveland. I have been teaching privately since 2005 and maintained a private studio in Boston before I moved to California.
[Student successes]
My students have entered into the fin
als of Northern California Viola Society competition, and are members of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra. In Boston, my students were members of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. Several of my students' music training contributed to them qualifying and entering prestigious higher education colleges, such as Harvey Mudd College and Brown University.
