Rachel did a great job teaching my 6 yr. old daughter her first piano lesson. She made the lesson fun while teaching my daughter the beginning basics of where the notes are on the piano. She was very encouraging and positive in her remarks!! I could tell she has taught children piano for a long time.

About Sandra
I studied under Mr. Willis Ley at Ley Studio for eighteen years. She was an accompanist for the Heritage School of Dance for twelve years and also played for the School for the Richmond Ballet for One Year. Sandra was trained in contemporary, patriotic and classical music as well as music theory. She has taught children and adults piano both in their homes as well as in her home. She is an accomplished pianist who will give the student a rewarding and fulfilling experience in mastering the keyboard to their fullest potential and play any song for there own enjoyment and for the enjoyment
of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I would work with the student on learning there favorite song. This would be a goal to set for the student for the first three months. They would be taught to do the scale with their right hand. They would learn there sharps and flats and the difference between the two key signatures. They would also learn during the first six months some of the basic terms in music theory. I would set goals, but never overwhelm the student, but work with them according to how much they could take in. They would have weekly assignments. If an assignment is not mastered during that time, then we would review it and carry it to the next week. When one assignment is mastered, then the student would work on the next. This would be a step by step processed. My goal for the student the first six months is to get that child or adult to be able to play their chords in their left hand, octaves and fillings in their right hand and know how to work the pedals. They would understand and know the key signatures and what timing they are playing in. The student would also know some of the basic music terms. Please keep in mind that this depends on how much information that the student can process. With some it could take a little bit longer. With others it would take less time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
f/w keyboard ("It's heavy, it was metal inside it!") w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect payment on any music material that I purchase at the Music Store.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Classical, Patriotic, Standard and Spiritual and also children's music for beginners. I do a wide range of music from the fifties up to today.

Sandra is very patient, kind, and gentle with my children, who are first time players. Her teaching approach is different for each one of my children, to best meet their individual learning needs. I can't believe how much they have grasped in only four lessons!

Bekah is a great teacher. She gives specific instructions on how to improve my vocal quality & technic, and the best part is that she gives beautiful aural examples from her own, rich voice. She also describes her expectations through very visual terms, which help me greatly to try to improve, and she paces the lesson very well. I would highly recommend her.

Learning to sing with Bekah was one of my favorite experiences ever. I'd not been singing for quite some time and she was excellent at not only helping me with my musicianship but able to help me understand what/why we were doing what we were doing, which at the end of the day helps one to become the best musical version of themselves! She helped me prep for auditions and get into some auditioned singing groups. Highly recommend!

About Connor
The Clarinet is one of my primary instruments, and one of the most versatile instruments in the woodwind family. The clarinet has a huge range and has beautiful tone colors, thus saying, it can be very difficult to master. I have been playing the clarinet for close to 10 years, and am willing to help teach beginners, and intermediate players. I focus heavily on specific technique to improve tone quality while playing long phrases. In addition, I also focus heavily on tonguing and articulation. Regardless of age or experience, I will provide you or your child with personalized lesson plans crea
ted to help achieve your end goal.
