ting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning.

He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

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.

***In-Home Availability***
Starting January 2019, I will have an available spot for 1-3 new students (2 or 3 only if they are in one household). A one hour student would be from 7:30pm to 8:30pm and 2-3 students would be from 7:30pm up to 9:00pm.

I have been a piano teacher for 12 years and have taught students ages 3 to 80. I have an Associate degree in Arts and a Bachelors degree in Science in Nursing, so I teach piano for the fun of it! I think it is really important to tailor each lesson plan to fit the student since people learn in different ways. I always try to take student preference into consideration when developing my specialized teaching plans. I’m always ready to have fun during a lesson!

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

About Lauren
As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech.

As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the moniker mini bear, with which I have written, produced, and released 2 EPs and 1 full length album. Illustrating a sound rich in 80s referenced romantic nostalgia, mini bear has garnered praise and recognition from respected media such as Grimy Goods, Impose Magazine and international indie press. I am currently an active performer in Los Angeles, and I have played at local venues such as The Echo, Resident, The Hi Hat, Bootleg Theatre, Moroccan Lounge, and The Satellite.

My role as a teacher has grown over the span of 10+ years. As a Creative
Trainer at the Apple store, I taught customers Logic Pro in both private one-on-one and workshop settings. I have also taught workshops on Ableton topics through Play Like A Girl and IO Music Academy. In addition to teaching adults, I have taught music production and Ableton to children ages 10-15 at Girls Rock music camp. I have been producing in Ableton Live for the past five years, and I provide consulting sessions to determine work flow efficiency. Content and teaching styles are customized based upon the learners skills and learning styles.

Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.

She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.

About Rachel
I have been playing the piano and the trombone since childhood. Growing up in a musical family, music has always played a big part in my life. I was active in school bands in addition to taking private lessons throughout grade school. In high school I was a member of Tri-M (a musical honor society), qualified for district band through audition, and was ranked in the top 10% of trombone players in the state of Virginia. Throughout my education I developed a working knowledge of brass instruments, music theory, a variety of playing styles, and much more.

After high school, I pursued and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University, while continuing my musical career, playing in bands offered by the school as well as in the Richmond area. I am currently active with the ACCA Temple Shiners in their German band
, The Sauerkrauts, 100% of whose proceeds go to benefit children in Shriner-owned hospitals.

I have been giving private lessons since 2006, and have a deep passion for musical education. I feel learning to play an instrument enriches life in a way few other things can.

About Seamus
Hi! My name is Seamus. I've been a musician and guitarist for over a decade now and am on my last semester of studying music and classical guitar at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Within the past few years, I've had the opportunity of studying with many talented and experienced professors and instructors of classical guitar, notably John Patykula at VCU. I've earned the rank of concertmaster of the guitar ensemble and have performed with the group and solo on many occasions within my time at school. Outside of my studies, I have performed classical guitar for weddings, business conventions, parties, etc. and have an extensive repertoire that has helped me cater to different kinds of events. I pride myself on my classical guitar technique and have been through many masterclasses and lessons to perfect each intricacy.

As well as
classical guitar, I also play electric guitar in two local progressive metal bands, Retrosphere and Epiphany. Both bands incorporate technical and difficult guitar parts and have grown to incorporate extensive composition, theoretical elements, and self-production. I've had the opportunity of performing at local venues like Strange Matter, Capital Ale House, Gallery5, and others.

As a teacher, I aim to individualize lesson plans and want all of my students to reach their goals with the guitar and in music. With this, I do try to incorporate as many elements of music as necessary in teaching. This can include anything such as ear training, sight reading, music theory, and technique. Of course, things are flexible and in the end, I just want you to find what you love with the instrument and have fun!

After many years as a touring musician I am very excited to continue sharing my practical knowledge and expertise with others. I will teach theory, both fundamental and advanced, but most importantly I will help you to apply it in context in a way that is practical, and most importantly, musical! I am adaptable and flexible, so we will follow where your interests take you. If desired we can branch out from learning the compositions of others and start creating your own! I have years of experience as both a lead guitarist and songwriter, so I love helping students discover THEIR process and how to make their creativity work for them. I have lots of experience working with younger children, as well as more advanced players. Wether your objective is to improve your technique, learn cover songs or write your own, I take great joy in providing
engaging lessons and sharing from my wealth of practical musical experience.

I’m Nate and I’ve been teaching self-doubters for 8 years.

Learning guitar takes effort, but about as much effort as skipping intros on Netflix. It’s not rocket science. You don’t need to be a prodigy. And you certainly do not need a musical background.

What you need is a good teacher and at least 1% of a positive attitude.

In 8 years of private teaching, I have met many students and musicians who never believe they could get past the basics.

I will take you from “I suck” to “Well that wasn’t so hard.”

I believe in the power of music and in you!
