My teaching career began while I was a Conservatory graduate student. Teaching and performing are complementary aspects of being a musician. Instructing others provides a deeper, more thorough understanding of my own approach to playing. Several decades of performing in professional orchestras and chamber music ensembles grants a life time of practical experience to share with my students.

While the serious pursuit of a professional level of accomplishment on two diverse instruments such as the violin and the flute is unusual, the idiomatic characteristics of each one have given me unique insights into other. Over the years I have discovered concepts that have enhanced my performing and teaching of both. These ideas have allowed me to present an integrated approach and perspective for both instruments that not many other teachers would have.

My pedagogical philosophy provides the aspiring student with a greater understanding of the other instruments with whom they will ...

About Jami

Taking a "road less traveled" as both a violinist and a flutist, Jami has spent a lifetime pursuing achievements on two diverse orchestral instruments. She is an active free lance musician on both instruments in Pittsburgh, PA and the metropolitan Kansas City area. She also performed frequently in

Jamie is one of those stellar people who is good at everything she does. She is a first rate teacher, performing violinist, Flutist and scholar. I recommend her without any hesitation.

I was in my mid 50s at the time I began violin lesson with Jami. As an adult beginner, I was apprehensive about learning the violin. I had no familiarity with the violin or string instruments and I also had concerns regarding scheduling lessons due to an often erratic work schedule and a busy family life. Several violin teachers I had contacted prior to Jami were unwilling to teach an adult beginner.

Jami was an amazing teacher! She was personable, encouraging and alleviated all my fears and concerns. She understood my busy schedule and was very accommodating. The lessons were more relaxed than I had initially anticipated. It did not take long before I began feeling comfortable handling the violin and bow. Through Jami, I also learned a great deal about the history and construction of the violin, music for the violin and music theory.

Jami taught a mix of Suzuki, scales and multiple technique and method books; all complementing each other on my path to progressing as a violinist. As an adult, it was nice to gradually incorporate more tunes a mature adult would appreciate playing while continuing to build on the basics. After the first few months, I particularly enjoyed learning how to play violin duets with Jami or having Jami accompany me on the piano. I always left my lessons with a feeling of accomplishment.

I only ceased lessons due to Jami relocating, but I am looking forward to online lessons once I am more technologically capable of doing so. You will not be disappointed if choosing Jami as a teacher!
Katya
I have worked with Jami Bale for over ten years. She has deep knowledge of both violin and flute, and has profound skills in chamber music. Ms. Bale is demanding yet very compassionate teacher, her students excel at a fast pace and make wonderful professional and amateur musicians.
Ms. Bale was an irreplaceable member of the Chamber Music Seminar faculty and Pittsburgh Youth Concert Orchestra.
Whether the student needs to only keep up with the school curriculum or place a top chair in a youth orchestra, Ms. Bale will be there for you every inch of the way.

I have a wealth of experience as a trumpeter and music teacher, and hold three degrees in music: DMA from Univ. of Georgia, MM from UT-Austin, and BM from N. Dakota State Univ. I am trained mostly in and play primarily "classical" trumpet, but have experience performing and teaching jazz and pop/commercial styles. Working with kids and adults on music is enjoyable and fulfilling, and I strive to help students as much as possible.

Chris was very flexible with my sons schedule. As an active kid involved in school and church activities, the online lessons with Chris were perfect. Through the year, my son advanced in his playing ability. We were excited to hear his piece at the state competition, but sadly the virus disrupted that. However, he learned much from Chris over the past several months. We appreciated the time and effort!

My son is a high school senior taking lessons from Dr. Heldt. The lesson went very well. My son is very happy to have such a kind and experienced teacher. So glad we found him!

I have been teaching for the past 8 years, and have worked with any age or skill level you can imagine. This has allowed me to create a methodology that will make sure you obtain the foundation you need in order to thrive at playing an instrument, but never lose track of what kind of music you're looking towards learning, and where your interests lie. I also have extensive performing experience having played and learned styles such as Flamenco (my first introduction to music), Jazz (I have a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Jazz Performance), Rock, Blues, Classical music and many more.

About Julian

I have a Bachelors degree in Jazz Performance from Berklee College of Music, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude, and a Masters Degree from Queens College in Jazz performance, studying under musicians such as Mike Moreno, Antonio Hart, Alain Mallet, David Berkman, Michael Mossman, Tim Miller and many

Our lessons with Julian are eye opening. He showed me many great exercises to become a better guitarist. He has a great attitude and knows a lot about music! If you want to learn guitar, Julian is the perfect teacher. Always looking forward to my lessons.

If you're serious about learning Guitar, you should talk to Julian. Seriously, my playing has improved exponentially since studying with him, 100% recommended!
Mike
Julian is the man! I started learning guitar from him a while ago and I can't believe how far we've come. I can now play some songs by myself, even learn them without his assistance. I had this idea that I wasn't cut for music making (I used to play some violin when I was younger, never got any good at it) but I couldn't resist the idea of learning how to play some guitar. Thanks to Julian (and his patience!) I no longer feel like I'm unable to do this. Take a lesson with him, you wont regret it!

I am a Horn Player attending the Juilliard School of the Arts. With this whole Corona Virus stuff happening, I am home needing a way to raise money to pay for my education, but I am also looking for a way to keep learning and growing. In addition, I feel that because I am younger it is easier for me to connect with students. However, I know some people avoid younger people because they have a lack of experience, but I want my students to know that I am more than qualified. Having been alumni of several prestigious camps such as Eastern Music Festival and Brevard Music Camp, as well as being a member of several youth orchestras and the Texas All-State Orchestra, I have learned so much. And I would love to share that with a student.

My daughters and I have been taking lessons with Jesus for over 6 months now. I have been absolutely thrilled with Jesus’s lessons for both me and my two daughters. We have learned A LOT about the etiquette and technique of piano - including how to read music and properly position ourselves/our hands when playing. It’s not just about the music - it’s about how music transforms us and has the power to bring so much joy! Jesus is a very patient and caring teacher. I truly enjoy having him in our home and the girls are always excited for their lessons.

During this COVID crisis, Jesus has done his absolute best to teach us through Zoom lessons. He is always flexible, easy to talk to and fun to work with.

I would HIGHLY recommend Jesus to anyone looking for a dedicated and exceptionally trained teacher, who is always on time and excited to watch you succeed.

Thank you, Jesus!!! We adore you!!

"Excellent teacher

I'm a professional singer and I know the importance of maintaining my "instrument" I take lessons with Wendy to help keep my voice healthy and to get honest feedback on performance skills. She is excellent in communicating technical information and is always spot on in in recognizing issues and problem areas. She has a way of identifying and correcting things in a kind and supportive way.
I take private lessons and I also enjoy her student workshops. Wendy provides a safe and open environment for singers to work on material, performance ability and vocal skills. I always have fun, learn something new, make new friends and all at a reasonable price! Whether you are a beginner or a professional you will enjoy the time spent with Wendy and you will walk out the door a better singer and performer than when you walked in!"

Mastering Guitar Finger Placement

When you're learning how to play the guitar, it's crucial to form good habits. If you can make correct guitar finger placement a regular part of your practice routine, you'll soon find it comes second nature to you. Learning the right fingering technique and sticking with it early on is much easier than trying to correct bad habits later on! Why is Correct Guitar Finger Placement Important? Do you ever notice buzzing, muted notes, or muddy pitches when you're playing guitar? All of these a …
