With me, I like to make sure that the students are going at their own pace and have more of a say so in what they want to do for their goals. Whether it be a classical song they love or learning a hip hop song from the radio, in order to make the experience personal to them I want the student to first identify what they want and use it as a goal to keep lessons productive and fun.

About Leanne

I am a classically trained violinist and performer. I have my own business where I also play Hip Hop, RnB, Jazz, and other genres for events such as parties and weddings. I am currently a junior Music Performance Major at Hampton University but I am originally from Atlanta, GA and I always come ho

Chris is kind and patient. He is not a French horn player, but is able to teach the basic components. He discusses the form of playing a lot. My daughter has enjoyed learning from him.

Fantastic Experience!

As a colleague of Chris' I can heartily recommend his teaching to any trombonists wishing to hone their skills as musicians. Chris focuses on the individual needs of each student, working to tailor his lessons to meet their specific needs and face their unique challenges. His attention to detail and patience helps each student build a strong foundation in musicality and fantastic brass playing. I recommend him highly as both a superb educator and performer!

Trumpet Lessons for my son

My son is 12 years old, has been playing Trumpet and Flugelhorn for about 5 years, and he needed a private instruction to take his music to the next level. He has made great progress under Chris' guidance, and his easy going manner has made our son feel very comfortable with the lesson environment. He is very talented, and would highly recommend Chris for anyone looking to further their capabilities.

Jesse is extremely talented and an excellent teacher. He is very patient and encouraging in his teaching style. He knows banjo and how to motivate his students. Establishing a strong foundation is the basis of his teaching method. Everything builds on this solid foundation.

I will help you you build strong fundamentals and excellent habits. We will concentrate on your sound, tone, and pitch center. I will help you develop a daily routine that builds your skill set every time you play. I enjoy working with adult students and comeback players. I am more of a coach than a taskmaster. I am an active trumpeter and perform frequently with several ensembles.

After playing and studying for 20+ years and earning a Masters Degree in Trumpet Performance I stopped playing. Thirty years later, with the encouragement of friends, I began playing again. I rediscovered my passion. I want to share my experience, knowledge and journey with my students so they t

Elena is an amazing teacher - knowledgeable, knows how to bring the best out in her students, her lessons have been very effective and to the point. The progress my daughter made in singing is unbelievable - from "we don't think she can" to " wow!! She can sing!" - her teaching technique is very effective. Professional and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you, Elena! You are the best!

Kait K.


Bgcheck Background Checked

My mission is to help students reach their fullest potential as singers and to build their confidence in the process. Lessons focus on each student as an individual and can encompass anything from vocal technique and song repertoire to audition coaching and even recording sessions to help the students with a project or to help them simply hear the subtleties in their voice more clearly as they train and grow.

Vocal Technique covered includes:

Range Building, Tone & Color, Vocal and Musical Dynamics, Diction, Releasing the Jaw, Opening Up the Sound, Body Conditioning For Singers and finally, Breath Support*

*I teach breath support in a way most teachers do not. I help students gain strong abdominal muscles and teach them how to use them to sing with more power and control. Rather than releasing the belly (as most teachers recommend) I show students how to breathe into their backs and use all three lobes of the lungs (upper, middle, lower). This allows them to keep the abs ...

We are so lucky to find such a wonderful teacher. Kait is so helpful--my daughter has already shown significant improvement, and I believe that she will continue to get better. Kait is very knowledgeable, experienced in a wide range of topics, and a real sweetheart with my teenager.

I do not really do long review. I would give Kait 6 stars if I could. Awesome.

Kait provided a very thorough grounding regarding breathing and breathing apparatus at the first lesson. This is exactly what my granddaughter needed to enable her to move forward. My grandchild was very satisfied when she left the class.

"My 13 year old granddaughter just finished her 1st year of viola at school in June 2014 and she wanted to take summer lessons to stay sharp. There were a lot of teachers available within a 10-15 minute drive, but after trying other teachers, we chose Mark (a 30 minute drive ) because, as others have commented, he is extremely patient and teaches by correcting, not criticizing. He simply has a gift for teaching. I have never regretted the extra drive. Once you've had a lesson with him, you won't want to go to anyone else."

"The best teacher I've EVER had.

Eric is a really great guy! He knows his stuff and he knows how to teach it in a way that you can understand he has patience, clarity, and knowledge. Eric is also flexible i had work and had to take rearrange one of our lessons and he told me which days he was available and we got to it and had a great lesson. He wants to know from what music background your coming from so he can help you reach the place you want to be.

Looking forward to every lesson with Eric"

"My daughter started taking online voila lessons with Nikita, and because this was our first experience with online lessons, we weren’t sure about what to expect. Turns out, my daughter started improving on all of the skills she hadn’t mastered. This growth started very quickly after lessons, thanks to Nikita! Through years of playing, she has never learned to acquire these skills, and after two or three lessons she had fully conprehended them. Nikita helped her so much!"

"Fawn has proven herself over the years to be an excellent teacher, both one on one and in group settings. I consider her to be one of the best private vocal instructors and vocal directors that I have ever worked with, and I know that if you take lessons from her, you will learn and grow in positive ways you never even imagined."
- Pauleen S.

"Max is a young man with a mature spirit far beyond his years. My wife and I heard him in concert where he gave a beautiful recital of Liszt and Beethoven Sonatas in our hometown of Berlin. I recently visited New York for a business trip, and took the opportunity to speak to this young man who captured my ears with his nearly philosophical performance. After a brief two hour lesson, it was clear to me that the artist had clear vision of a realm that most would disregard as imaginary. I look forward to hearing him again in Europe, and encourage those in New York to take advantage of his services. He will be a major influence on the future of classical music."
