Trey was ecstatic about his music teacher and the fact that he is going to learn how to make music come out of the piano.
He is looking forward to his next lesson.

Dan is a really insightful instructor. He really knows Ableton in-and-out with his eyes closed. He also has a good ear and is able to help you get the sound that you want. He gives really good feedback on projects that you might be working on. He is really well-versed in all aspects of music production - not only in sound design and mixing but also in songwriting and also can talk about difficult topics like inspiration and creativity in a unique way. If you're serious about music production, I would certainly recommend taking lessons with Dan.

About Michael
I am a professional musician and certified music teacher with over 14 years teaching and over 23 years of performance experience. I hold a bachelors in music with a concentration of education/tuba from Montclair State University.

I have taught instrumental/general classroom music to students from K-12 with a wide range of learning styles. Likewise, I have taught private students for 20 years ranging in age from 5 years to 80 years in woodwind brass and percussion instruments.

My students can expect to be challenged each week on the fundamentals of the instrument while learning how to think critically about all aspects of their instrument. I believe in teaching students to have fun learning as well as enjoy building their confidence in playing.

About Jessica
I am a local small musician who does soprano and baritone ukulele cover videos. I record my own songs and post them online, and help others do the same! I learned guitar and viola at a young age and then taught myself how to play the soprano and baritone ukulele. I have been taught by amazing teachers, taught some of the best students including myself! My different experiences as student, teacher, and musician make learning a lot of fun. I take a lot of influence from popular you tube musicians and love using that as a tool to teach and learn. I even have an extra ukulele you can use during class if you need! I will have helpful worksheets and tools for you to take home and practice on your own time as well.

Currently I record cassettes and digital audio files. I have also created really fun music videos with all of the music produced
myself. Through high school I was in a few bands, and I have always had such a huge passion for music and seeing that passion grow in others.

My clients learn how to play in my comfortable and creative home. I have beautiful acoustics in my living room, with inspiring artwork on the walls and a ton of natural light. I work with singers and uke players of various age and talent range!

About Amanda
I am a professional singer who graduated with a master's in Vocal Pedagogy from the Boston Conservatory and a bachelor's in Vocal Performance from George Mason. My passion lies in teaching singers to use their voice with the greatest efficiency and artistry possible. I place heavy emphasis on technique and help students set manageable goals for their progress.

I am trained a classical soprano and contemporary musical theater singer. In my early training, I sang mostly church music as well as musical theater, but fell in love with opera and classical singing at George Mason. I have performed in numerous operas, including the title role of Hänsel in Humperdink’s Hänsel and Gretel and First Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. I also performed in musical theater reviews and jazz ensembles at Mason. I enjoyed the opportunity to perform abroad
and choreographed for a production of La Traviata in Italy for the La Musica Lirica Summer Program. I currently sing in a small, early music ensemble run out of St. Benedict's Church in Richmond, VA.

Though she enjoys performing, I am a teacher at heart. I have been giving private voice lessons for years and have taught for such schools as the Potomac Arts Academy in Fairfax, Virginia and the Boston Arts Academy in Boston, Massachusetts. I was also the vocal coach for Boston City Singers’ Cantare Singers, a group of students between the ages of ten and fourteen. I enjoy working with singers of all ages and interests. I'm excited to meet you to begin your vocal journey!

About Tere
Hi! I'm Tere, I'm originally from Chile and currently living in Union City. I am a voice teacher, have experience working as a vocal coach for music theatre companies in Chile, and for actors and singers individually. I have a degree in speech and Language pathology, a diploma in Vocology, certification in resonant voice and I am currently finishing the voice Teacher training program at New York Vocal Coaching, where I am learning a lot about how to be a better singing teacher.
I love to teach about the voice in a comfortable and kind environment where my students feel like they can explore their voice's possibilities, which I'm sure are infinite! I adapt my lessons to every singer's needs and characteristics.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Hello parents/students! I am an experienced teacher currently teaching elementary music. I graduated from Liberty University with a bachelor's in choral music, my secondary instrument being the piano.
I absolutely love teaching music to young and old alike and believe that students deserve to have a patient, yet strong teacher to challenge them to do the best they can do.
I can teach students the basic foundations of music and how to read classical and contemporary (chord charts) music.
I look forward to hearing from you!
