About Geoff

I played on a toy piano when I was very young, learning a bit of sight reading from my Mother, while listening to classical, jazz, and rock music. When I was 12, I learned guitar and later took private piano lessons from a prominent Philadelphia instructor. After playing in a rock band in high sc

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

Jen has done a great job with our 8 year old. She keeps her challenged and is continually increasing her skill set. I was most impressed that Jen had her learning both hands right from lesson 1. She's learning quickly and most importantly she's enjoying it.

Music. What does it really mean? It's nice to be able to sing songs, but what good is singing if we don't understand music. This course is for the "singer" an individual who is interested in learning how to read and write music.

Pitch. Rhythm. Scales. Intervals. Chords. Harmony. If you're serious about music, these are fundamental concepts you need to understand and master.

If you love music, but don't know anything about music theory, you need to take this "one on one" online class. I will start from the very beginning step by step. Hope to see you online.

Happy learning!!

Ms Christine really is called to teach. I can say this, based on my experience with her. She has several unique teaching qualities. For example, she is an expert at breaking singing concepts down so that they are easliy understood and more importantly, easily applicable in practical terms. I have experienced a lot of 'a ha moments' with her. She has helped me understand the technicality of my voice better. I know how to use my voice better, how to control my breath, how to apply my breath in singing to get the sound I want, and so many other things.

Christine is such an amazing instructor. So patient, and willing to help you move past your comfort zone and thrive in your gifting. Looking forward to our next session!

"Jack is the best music teacher I have ever had, hands down! I started taking lessons from Him about a year ago and am so glad I stuck with them. He is very patient and understanding, as I just could not understand any theory for the longest time. I used to play piano by ear so I knew some things but when it came to reason and theory I was so behind but ever since I started to take lessons from Jack, I feel more confident in my playing and in my listening as I try to apply all of the things he taught me. He is very down to earth and has an accent so it makes the who hour more enjoyable. Overall I would recommend Jack to anyone, no matter how little or how long they've been playing!!"

"Tomoko is a fantastic tutor. I had a lot of trouble understanding music theory because it had been a topic I hadn't seen before. She was able to explain things to me in a very clear and easy way. She was also able to help me with ear training lessons which was also surprisingly easy, considering it was a topic I felt I had a lot of trouble with at the time. She's one of the best, no doubt.

Also, if you happen to get piano lessons from her, I'm sure you'll get more than your money's worth. She's an amazing jazz, classical, and overall pianist."
