I began learning the 5-string banjo at the age of 8, which makes 13 years total of experience. I play a variety of genres including bluegrass, rock, blues, etc., all on the banjo. Although I teach the 5-string Scruggs style banjo, I use my advanced music knowledge to mix the banjo into any genre you could imagine. I studied at an arts school for 4 years and even played banjo in multiple broadway style shows. My goal is to make you a better musician overall while making you a better banjo player.

A beginner student will explore the entire keyboard, starting with the black keys on the piano, and then move on to the white keys, learning their lettered names. Students with some prior knowledge and piano experience will show me what they know and can do, and then we will build upon that each week to achieve a higher level of learning. Students who want to learn improvisation will start with some simple "add-ons" or styling to create a different sound for their piece. l always ensure that the student is learning basic knowledge needed to play the piano. But I also like to cater to their genre preference if at all possible. After all...playing a piece that you REALLY like makes learning so much fun!!

About Monica

I have played the piano since I was five years old. That's nearly 55 years! Even though I can play by ear, I was taught to read and interpret written music. I began teaching piano while in college in 1980, and at one time had as many as 30 students a week. That number tapered off some, especiall

Monica is the best piano teacher my son ever had. She's energetic, but yet patient, explains things that anybody can understand and follow, just a great person all around. If she wouldn't have had the sweet (non- hypoallergenic) cat, my son (who is highly allergic to cats) would've loved to continue with her.

Tori spreads the joy of playing the pedal harp and lever harp by teaching private lessons to children and adults of all skill levels (no previous musical training required!). She teaches at her students' homes or online. Tori's teaching style is holistic: she focuses not just on reading music, harp technique, and basic music theory but also music history, developing effective practice habits, and helping her students' discover how the harp can become a part of their lives and achieve their musical goals and dreams!

About Tori

I am a professional artist and musician in Chattanooga, TN! I have been teaching art and music for six years in California and Tennessee. I have been painting since I was big enough to hold a paintbrush and playing the harp for over 15 years. I have a degree from Stanford University in Art Practice

I can't recommend lessons with Tori highly enough!

I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori.

My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years

Thank you Tori!!!!

My three boys (ages 11-15) loved working with Tori. We still have the block print-making pieces, paintings and charcoal drawings displayed in our kitchen. Their favorite project was creating plaster casts of their own faces. Tori is very thoughtful, patient and has a great zen energy. I highly recommend Tori!

I really like Kimberly because she lets me pick my own songs to learn and is really nice in general. She makes music sheets for me to take home and study and I’ve learned a lot from her since my first lesson. I think she is a great music teacher and I hope anybody who wants to take guitar lessons will give her a shot.
