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.

My granddaughter is 6 years old and this is her first professional piano teacher. Kareem is ensuring that she has the basics down before she continues. She enjoys the lessons, and is excited when lesson day comes.

Evan is an experienced musician who translates his expertise really well to aspiring drummers. He's super calm and patient which makes lessons fun. He supports students at whatever level they're at vs. excessively pushing. Highly recommend!

Evan is an amazing drum teacher. As an adult learner taking drum lessons for the first time, I had no idea what to expect, especially using an online format. I am happy to report that Evan has exceeded all of my expectations! He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He goes at my pace and flexes with my interests. He is incredibly patient and answers all of my questions. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Evan as a drum teacher.

During this time my students have earned a 100% placement rate in our local middle school honor bands, numerous placements in the high school bands, including 15 first chair honors. I have placed at least one student in the Tennessee All-State band each of the 10 years, with multiple students achieving this distinction for the last 5 years. Other accolades include: The NAfME All-National Band, the Macy's Day Great American Marching Band, the Interlochen Summer Music Institute, guest soloist at the International Navy Band Saxophone Symposium, Finalist in the Navy Band Young Artist Competition, and the Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts.

I primarily teach classical saxophone, but I have an extended background in jazz, as well as full band experience. I am very comfortable in helping beginners start their journey on any wind instrument. As a saxophonist, I am sure that I will be able to help you reach your ...

Classical music is the foundation for everything else!

I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 15. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons.

I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!

Please note: Home lessons must be at a location that I can get to easily with public transportation. I do not have a car.

During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my pia

What if You Forget the Words? A Singer's Story

No matter how much you prepare for your moment in the spotlight, anything can happen on stage! This unpredictability makes performing lots of fun, but it can also be scary.
