Elise is an incredible voice coach! She listens close to your vocal needs and helps you achieve the vocal aspirations. I worked with Elise for a little more than nine months and my range, tone, and technique improved so much. By far best vocal coach I've ever had.

About Darren
Hi there! My name is Darren and I look forward to helping you accomplish your goals on the upright bass. I have been teaching since August 2016, but in that time I have helped train two high school students to win auditions into music colleges to pursue music performance and music education degree programs. I have also helped electric bass guitarists transition into playing classical upright bass. I went to Boston Conservatory and graduated with my masters degree, studying with Lawrence Wolfe, associate principal bass of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and principal bass of the Boston Pops Orchestra. Currently I am a professional freelance orchestral bassist in the Boston area, and I have previously performed with several major symphony orchestras in Connecticut including the Waterbury, Wallingford, and New Britain Symphony Orchestras.
Most of my students characterize me as a creative, patient, organized, friendly, and motivated teacher.

About Michael
I am a classically trained and professional musician who has worn many different musical hats over the years. I began playing drums when I was 14, in Houston, TX with Craig LeMay, and since then I have learned many different string and world instruments. I studied music theory and vocal performance at the Florence University of the Arts in Italy, taken sitar lessons from Mita Nag in Kolkatta, India, and jazz performance in Austin, TX with Joey Colarusso. I have played in many different bands over the years, such as accompanying Michael Kiwanuka with the musical saw, accompanying Katie Sachs with the musical saw, playing bass guitar with Halaska and DJing private events with Spacecraft Entertainment. I have been teaching music to special education students, in Austin public schools, and foster children with Kids in a New Groove. I have als
o built and modified many of my own instruments and ready to teach you some quirky musical production skills as well. I believe listening and being adaptable to an individual student's needs are the keys to teaching anyone to express themselves through music.

After studying Spanish for 2 years at the university level and extensive travel to Latin America I am fluent in Spanish in both the academic and conversational sides of the language.

Michael is doing a great job getting me started on my piano journey. The exercises and drills he is teaching me have helped me feel comfortable at the keyboard. I've even learned a song already, after just 2 lessons!

Highly recommended.

Really good teacher. I had never played piano before and Michael was great at instantly giving me things to work on and gave off the impression that lessons were tailored to what I was interested in and the direction I personally wanted to go with the piano. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone else looking for a good instructor in piano or any other musical instrument he works with.

Brendon is a wonderful cello instructor for my son. He is not only patient but also very inspiring. He listens to our wishes and needs, and he designs the lesson plan to meet them. In addition, he is very good at building a strong bonding with his student. Brendon has recently moved away from our town, and my son can no longer taking lessons from him. But I know my son will always remembers Brendon fondly as his best cello instructor.

Brendon is a wonderful teacher and a gifted musician. I feel like I have more knuckles than fingers when playing, but he's patient and has produced - in my own humble opinion - a competent cellist out of me.

I usually give a trial lesson first, to make sure that I would be a good fit with the student. I usually teach beginner lessons, but would be interested in intermediate lessons as well. I teach all ages, from 3 year olds to seniors. I currently teach part time, but could potentially teach full-time in the future.

About Ericka
I enjoy teaching students of all ages, and believe that singing is a fundamentally reflexive activity; a teacher’s job is to reinforce and facilitate students’ natural inclination toward healthy and engaging singing.

I have worked with students in a variety of settings, and have experience in a number of vocal styles. The most rewarding aspect of being a teacher is witnessing the growth of my students. I am also grateful for the perspective that they can offer, and appreciate the discoveries that I make about my own singing through teaching.

I am an active, classically trained soprano with experience in a variety of vocal styles. I have been featured in recitals, scenes programs, musicals, operettas, and operas, performing roles ranging from Milky White to Susanna.

I have encountered firsthand the rewards of being under experie
nced tutelage, and believe I can use my knowledge and experience to help students down this fulfilling path.

Hi I'm kate!
I teach piano and voice lessons for students of all ages. I currently work at a music studio within Charlottesville VA called " The Music Emporium" as a piano/vocal coach, as well as do in home lessons and online lessons. I have been teaching for over two years, and actively keep myself involved with music through singing with a classical chorus within the area. In my free time, I teach preschoolers, and teach children's music classses within the music studio, as well as music classes within my schools. I am possibly going to be working with a local elementary school this year, teaching private piano lessons in their afternoon program as well. If you have any questions, feel free to add me on my facebook page at Kate Wisbey Music, or email me at katewisbeymusic@gmail.com. I have done crazy jobs such as work on a cruiseship
as a youth counselor, to working at disneyworld. I even have my AMS Montessori certification to teach primary classes, as well as my music together certification to teach children's music classes with families. I can be a little silly, but I promise that lessons will be a lot of fun!
