My daughter and I were very satisfied with the voice lessons and attention provided by Tasha. She took personal interest in my daughter’s desire to improve her singing, and Tasha went above-and-beyond in coordinating a Christmas caroling opportunity for my daughter . I would highly recommend Tasha for any students interested in improving their singing skill; we were very happy with her teaching!!

Melissa was my first voice teacher, and I was so fortunate to have her. She was very patient with me because I was very shy and self conscious when it came to vocal lessons. She help me find my voice, and started crafting it using many different tools to help me understand the different elements that allows one to register sound. She is a joy to learn from, and I recommend any beginner to learn from her.

My goal as an instructor is to provide my students with an opportunity to discover their own musical potentials. From breaking the ice from playing for the very first time, to perfecting even the most structured and difficult pieces, I feel there are no limits. I feel comfortable teaching in any genre and always tailor my classes to match my students own individual learning style.

In my lessons, I highlight important principles right from the start, such as posture, proper fingering, and rhythm training, to ensure no bad habits form that later are hard to break. As we become more confident in our playing, we transfer some of the traits contained within us. Those traits become the character and style of our "musical speech," which will help to define us as musicians. I recommend books and provide sheet music when we start learning songs. Learning music with me has been said by many of my students as, "the most fun they have ever had playing music."

About Melody
My musical experience began at the age of 4 on the piano. I have been classically trained for most of my life. I have performed on soundtracks, played with bands (in genres from Jazz to Metal), and accompanied choirs. I have taught intro to piano and music theory since the age of 15. Currently, I teach throughout the Dallas metroplex, play in several bands, as well as write music for Television and Film.

I see music as a language. Once it is mastered, it can be shared with anyone, anywhere.

I signed up with Melody for something unique - learning to speak from my diaphragm and speak with more bravado and projection. I've always been frustrated by how my voice goes out if I speak loudly in a crowded room.

She took me through different exercises she's borrowed from her singing lessons and applied it to my specific case. I have a much better idea of how my voice should sound and where the sound should come from. Although I still revert back to my old ways, I recognize it and from here on out it's about me actively trying to improve it with the skills provided to me.

Jon is fabulous! He is able to provide a mix of classical, contemporary music styles to build on and develop a broad base of musical interest my son has. He is able to tailor his teaching tools to fit in with my son's interests. This is no mean feat, especially when my son is only 8 years of age.

Thanks so much Jon!

Fort Collins, CO

I am versed in all the major training methodologies from Suzuki to Alfred, but I craft my teaching to the goals and personalities of my students. I teach both my sight and by ear training--believing that they both work together.

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

Lana has proven to be a wonderful teacher over the past couple of months since I have been using her. I have a demanding sales job in Florida that requires me to travel by car all of the time. Basically living out of hotel rooms a couple months out of the year, I have not been able to continue my hobbies so easily especially playing the piano. After having a dinner conversation with a co-worker, he mentioned to me that I take online piano classes. He knew of Lana through a relative that recently had a recital that he attended and was impressed with their progress. Sounded like a great idea. I reached out to Lana, put the keyboard in the trunk of the car, and the rest was history! I was a little hesitant of taking online instruction at first but it really has allowed me to continue my hobbies on the road and greater flexibility when I am home as well. The quality of the video streaming works well and I really enjoy the instruction that Lana has provided for me. She seemed to understand my pace of learning and had me fine tuning some technical issues that I was having. I am extremely satisfied with her services and look forward to our instructional sessions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in taking piano lessons online or in person.

I am learning to play classical, popular, holiday classics and looking forward to learning blues and jazz! My THANKS to Lana, who is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher, as well as an accomplished and gifted musician. She knows how to make learning fun.

I'm a first time piano student at a ripe golden age that thought I wouldn't have to learn to read notes...haha! I was apprehensive about taking piano lessons at this stage of life. Lana is the best...she is patient, challenging, supportive, and makes learning fun. She starts you off with songs you enjoy playing and builds to a variety. I've only been playing for a short time and I already have a great mix of popular songs and now moving into classical. She even made learning notes fun with an app she found. You learn and play at your own pace. I've seen her interact with young and old and am impressed with her aptitude of working with each person at their unique skill level. I love learning piano from Lana and I would recommend her to people and children of all ages.

Hello! My name is Jessica! I would delight in teaching your student. I hold a Bachelor's of Music from Peabody Conservatory in Clarinet Performance and am working toward a Master of Teaching in Mathematics from University of Virginia. I delight in teaching and tutoring various subjects and skill levels; piano, clarinet, mathematics, chemistry, and writing are what I have most experience in. Please don't hesitate to reach out and ask questions; there's no pressure at all to feel the need to have to hire me just for asking questions. I hope to get the chance to meet you! Thank you for viewing my profile!

About Jessica
I hold a Bachelor of Music in Clarinet Performance from Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, and am working toward a Master of Teaching in Mathematics at University of Virginia in Charlottesville. I have been teaching and tutoring for about 7 years now, and I guess something is going right in our sessions; all my students are highly successful, I'm such a proud teacher. I would love for your student to be one of them! Please do not hesitate to reach out even if it's just to ask questions; I would love to hear from you!!

I am qualified to teach/tutor such subjects as mathematics (any through calculus; anything beyond that I would need to review and have no trouble doing so), also writing, chemistry, physics, music theory, general music, and SAT prep (predominantly mathematics). I have a private piano and clarinet studio, and though space
is limited, I would love for you to join it.

***It is worth mentioning that I currently live in Charlottesville as I finish up the coursework in my program. Unfortunately because of that, I can only accept students virtually if you're not local for me. I do have much experience with virtual lessons, so please do not hesitate to try it out. I will be moving back to Northern Virginia one year from now to do my student-teaching, so in-person lessons can happen if you can be patient and bear with me. Again, I would love to hear from you and hope to get the chance to work with your student.

Students will learn how to read music and to practice using effective strategies so that they can eventually learn anything they want to play. I also make sure to help my students understand the basic concepts of music theory in order to apply them creatively through improvisation and composition.

About Elyse

I earned my Masters of Music in Piano Pedagogy degree from TCU in 2014, and before that my Bachelors of Music in Piano Pedagogy degree from the University of Oklahoma. I have lots of experience teaching students of all ages and ability levels. My main goals are for my students to learn to read music, understand basic music theory concepts so they can apply them through improvisation and composition, use effective practice strategies to learn any piece they want to learn, and to always enjoy the process of learning to play piano. I also really enjoy tailoring curriculum to each individual students learning style and interests. I know that students who play music they enjoy will practice more and I

You have to be able to read two different musical lines simultaneously, and keep track of what both your left and right hands are doing, all while your foot works the pedals. While most schools have classes to teach students band instruments or stringed instruments, few schools offer piano instruction.
