It is important to have teacher, student, and parents work together to see the accomplishments happen in the future. I make the lessons meaningful, so that my student can retain the information and practice effectively at home. My ultimate goal is to have my student think critically and listen carefully, so that they can become their own teacher.

I have been incorporating theory into the lessons for the 25 plus years I've been teaching. It's an integral part of learning each piece and additional books can be used to reinforce new concepts if needed.

I LOVE teaching cello! I enjoy not only sharing my love of the music and the instrument, but also helping to expand my students' knowledge and hone their technique. My approach focuses on giving students the tools they need to become more independent musicians, so that the learning process will continue outside the lessons. This mostly consists of teaching a student how to practice efficiently and effectively, so they develop a good ear and become adept and solving their own musical problems or struggles. I will work with you to reach your cello playing goals and to enjoy yourself in the process!

About Emily

Long Island native Emily Doveala began studying the cello at age nine. She started her formal musical training at Mannes Prep, studying with Dorothy Lawson of the ETHEL Quartet. She went on to achieve her Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance at Ithaca College, where she studied with Elizabeth Sim

Greetings!

My name is Eric Behrenfeld, AKA Baron. My strong suit is that I have the experience of playing drums in Chicago Blues bands and working with singers. I also understand how to develop improvisational skills for live performance. I can teach the skills necessary for a person wanting to play drums successfully with other musicians not only in Blues bands, but with Rock, R&B, Surf and Country bands too. I also play the ukulele and a variety of hand percussion instruments as well.

I love to see a student progress and get better at playing drums! Seeing the student play drums and watching their skills improve is a tremendous honor for me as a teacher.

I do audio recordings and mixing for instruments and vocals. My music space, the Blue Leopard Lair, is ideal for singer/songwriters and instrumentalists wanting to produce demos and production tracks. I use Garage Band and Logic Pro X software.

About Eric

I have played drums professionally since the early 1980's in a variety of bands primarily around Chicagoland. When I am not performing locally, I teach drums and percussion. My primary focus as a drummer is Blues and Rock music on drumkit, along with also teaching hand percussion. I also play ukule

Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

"Mr. Frixos is very patient, helpful and knowledgable on what he teaches. My daughter is excited to work with him. I give him a 5 because he keeps the parent informed about what lessons he is working on with my daughter and what he expects her to work on. He explains everything even to me so I can assist my daughter.
Thanks Mr. Frixos you are wonderful. Great personality!"

"Alex is a great guitar teacher. I like the way he teaches the guitar. He has made the music euphonious for me. He encourages me to listen the scales and chords while he plays and thus it helps me to learn guitar very quickly. I am new to guitar but Alex has made everything simple with his fun and friendly environment during the lessons. I would recommend him who is beginner like me in guitar."

"As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended......."

"Cyndi is phenomenal !!!! Her kind, pleasant, encouraging, sweet voice makes her very easy to work with. I have taken 5 lessons with her so far, she has enabled me to do things with my voice that I did't think I would be able to do. Working with Cyndi has re-built my confidence, I've learned to dissect songs in groups and use my listening hear, work my diaphragm to enhance my tone and strength. I couldn't be happier. Thank you so very much. I love you to the moon and back."

"Ms. Lorna is a very good teacher overall.

Ms. Lorna is a very good teacher. She is a nice, great, professional, and relatable teacher. She brings out skills in students who students themselves didn't know they had. Since I started taking lessons with her she has taught me a lot, she has brought out skills that i didn't know i could do with my voice, and it's very easy to learn with. I have learned and am still learning a lot from her.Thank you Ms. Lorna for being such a great teacher.
