Andrew is a fantastic teacher - patient, very knowledgeable and professional. I was shocked by how quickly I was able to progress from a complete beginner to being able to play full pieces. I was nervous but Andrew put my mind at ease and have me confidence with the instrument. He’s very attentive to students needs. Can’t recommend enough!

I believe that every student has his/her own need because we are all unique as human beings, every one of us has their stronger and weaker skills and my job as a teacher is to find the best tool to pass to the given student.

I am strict but fun, whichever amount the student needs more.

I use the Suzuki books because the songs (and later pieces) in are very good, popular, fun, and evenly progressive.

Achievements depend also on the student and the amount of practicing done at home. I as a teacher can only do that much in passing my knowledge and spur the student own. Practicing at home is very, very important.

Sean has been FANTASTIC with my 9 y.o. son. I was skeptical about how well online lessons would work for a complete beginner. This clearly isn’t Sean’s first rodeo. He has an excellent system for teaching online by sending annotated music beforehand. I must admit I had to push my son a little to get him to agree to piano lessons. Now he loves playing. He practices everyday on his own without being told and loves to ask me to record videos of him playing to send to his grandparents. I’m so proud of him and so grateful to Sean.

Our first session with Sean went very well. My kids are looking forward to the next session!

With over 10 years of teaching experience, and sharing the stage with the likes of Bob Mintzer and Gilbert Castellanos, trumpet playing is my biggest passion. Our lessons will be focused, yet relaxed; challenging but always fun and full of exciting challenges. My playing and teaching experiences have helped me understand what it takes to reach that "next level" of trumpet playing, whether it involves range, technique, or musical performance. I hope we can make some great music together soon!

I have been teaching Voice for 1 year and my students have been able to sing in bands, gain more confidence when singing, and perform out. Within the first few lessons, you will be able to learn different vocal exercises that will help strengthen your voice and help you expand your vocal register. As time goes on you will be able to confidently sing different styles, and feel more confident singing those high and low notes. I specialize in genres such as pop/rock/folk and provide guidance and beginner level books for students to work on. I also require for students to record each lesson on a recorder/cell phone/iPod/or iPad so that they can listen and practice along with each lesson. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and cannot wait to meet you!

Neguine teaches piano to my two children, ages 8 and 6, and she’s been wonderful. She comes to our house and immediately the house is a calm friendly place to learn music. She’s patient with my kids who love piano but are still little, and she has a good sense of humor when they want to try something a little quirky. They also have been making great strides with sightreading, and their eagerness to learn more has only increased. Neguine also does not rush the kids: If a child needs to repeat part of a lesson for another week as she is good about making sure kids reinforce what they’re learning, which is something I appreciate, and my kids have learned to appreciate that too. I highly recommend her!

Exercises for Practicing Guitar Chords

There are several ways to master the technique of changing chords, so let’s look at a couple of exercises using basic guitar chords. The basic guitar chords are C, D, Dm, E, Em, F, G, A, and Am. Some instructors add C7, D7, E7, G7, A7 and B7. The F chord is always the most difficult for the beginning guitar player because you hold two strings down with one finger. Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chord …
