Kareem is superb. Under his tutelage I am certain I will advance quickly from my current skill set. I'm more convinced than ever that I can become a real musician. His assignments require the commitment that I am willing to invest. I hope I will live up to his expectations.

As a composer and performer, I always encourage players to understand the fundamentals of music…music theory. There are many misconceptions about music theory: it’s too hard, it’s no fun, no one needs it - all wrong! The principals of music are simple, fascinating, and incredibly useful. Whether you took music classes in college or are just getting started with your first instrument, I can help you change the way you look at music. At first, the language of music seems strange and unfamiliar. That’s because it is! But when you take it one step at a time – one foot in front of the other – the meaning behind all the chords and scales becomes clear.

The first thing to learn about music theory is that your ear already knows it. Theory simply describes and gives definition to what your ear already hears. It’s like studying a language. By studying how nouns and verbs work we have a more powerful command of our language. The same is true for music.

Talk to you soon!

Growing as a musician and producer has been a remarkably fulfilling path and my passion for sharing that adventure is what drives my excitement for teaching. I hope to bring positive energy and insight to all my students’ lessons and help them grow. I am interested in working with students of all ages, and enjoy helping with everything — learning how to sing or improve vocal technique, learning how to play piano, cover favorite artists, perform, record, navigate ProTools of Logic or digital/analog synths. I you have a specific goal or project in mind, long or short term I'd love to help!

About Marie

Marie is an AMAZING piano teacher. I'm began my lessons about a year ago as an adult...which I've heard is a difficult time to learn piano. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to play with "two hands" ever...but she had me playing songs with both hands within a matter of weeks. She is patient, very talented and a really great teacher. I look forward to my lessons with her each week. I can see my progress happening with each passing lesson. I am already playing songs that inspired me to learn piano in the first place!! I would highly recommend anyone that wants a great teacher to hire Marie.
Michelle
Marie is a great piano teacher, I have been with her since Oct. 2018. She is very patient and works with me to learn new things to continue to grow in my piano playing. I have always wanted to play and started learning at 60 years old. She helps me improve with each new song.
William
She is by far a great instructor. She knows what she’s doing and is extremely motivational. I couldn’t ask for a better instructor! 10/10 would recommend!

Awesome teacher! Took several years off from playing clarinet, and Lisa helped me get going again. Best thing I ever did was to start taking music lessons again!
Mary
Lisa is an experienced teacher in so many ways. She is well versed in the mechanics of instruments, and all the nuances of music. She works well with students of all ages, and is an excellent teacher!!!

Lisa has been great at explaining some aspects of Jazz theory and improvisation that I have missed or only glossed over in the past. She has given me worksheets and examples that are nicely presented for further study. I recommend her for woodwinds and theory studies! A great teacher and a teachers teacher actually!

"Billy is the absolute best! Transcribing rhythms and ear training analysis have always been my weaknesses when it comes to music theory knowledge and finding the right exercises and techniques to improve has always been quite a difficult process to achieve. However, within just a few tutoring lessons from Billy, I started to build a better understanding of music theory as a whole. In every tutoring lesson, Billy was patient, knowledgeable and friendly which quickly benefited my musicality and strengthened my overall friendship and love with music. Thank you Billy!"

I had the privilege to work with Melissa when I was a student at Cornish College of the Arts. Melissa was always so dedicated and encouraging towards me and my musical goals. If I had a question she would be right there to help me solve it. Melissa's strongest suit in my opinion is her ability to compose music. She is extremely patient, passionate and detailed in her work. Thanks Melissa for everything!"

"Music Theory and Music Performance

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music."
