I offer 24 years of experience playing, and 17 years teaching privately and as a public school band director. My curriculum focuses on technique, theory, style, and interpretation.

To develop quality saxophone technique, an emphasis on posture, breath support, embouchure, tone quality, intonation, articulation, and fingering is incorporated in each portion of a given lesson.

The importance of theory and scales is outlined and taught with each lesson. A challenging scale assignment to improve technical ability and music theory knowledge directly correlated to the assigned repertoire will help students understand the structure of the music they are practicing.

Saxophone students dedicate practice time to classical repertoire that includes both lyrical and technical challenges. Demonstrating the highest level of performance and knowledge of a piece is the desired result. A portion of each lesson is dedicated to students learning the style of jazz, a staple for the saxophone. Students

All ages are welcome! Viola is one of my secondary instruments and I would love to pass on my passion for music to my students. Students can expect to learn how to play the viola with proper technique in a way that is unique to each student. Students use the Suzuki books, Barbara Barber scale method, etudes and student requests in their lessons. Brynn’s students will also learn basic music theory, which includes reading notes, rhythms and key signature recognition for all major and minor keys. Students can also expect to improve their overall musicianship skills while earning audition skills and gaining overall confidence. I cannot wait to work with you.

About Brynn

Brynn is an experienced violinist with a Bachelor's of Music in Violin Performance from Youngstown State University. She has studied under the guidance of Professor Joseph Kromholz. She has been playing the violin for 13 years. She is classically trained but has experience performing other genres.

Brynn was such a great teacher for my daughter! She was engaging and supportive throughout the lesson. Her knowledge about music and the viola is phenomenal! My daughter is so excited to connect with Brynn for her lessons each week.
Salome
It was our first lesson and as a parent I trust Brynn to position my daughter to be a great violin player. As she instructed my child she also made sure that I understood what she was teaching so that I can assist her with practices at home. This was very forward thinking and I appreciated her sharing her knowledge with me! My daughter has a great time!

Learn to sing in your authentic voice! I teach exercises and techniques that improve range, tone, control, vocal presence and agility. Students explore the correct use of the diaphragm, learn about bringing out natural overtones, and transitioning from chest voice to the upper register. I teach all styles, these techniques are proven to be universal.

Landon is a kind and knowledgeable teacher. His patience and broad experience with various aspects of music make him a great resource.
Avi
My gifted son needs challenging and stimulating activities to help him balance all of his feelings. I was extremely hesitant with signing him up because he is only 4. However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one.
Lorraine S.
When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.

Not everyone can play an instrument or sing "by ear", however, there is a process by which you can improve your ability to "hear" the nuances of music, from identifying intervals to identifying keys. This can be especially important when trying to emulate your favorite songs. This training is part of all my instrumental lessons, but can be taught as a separate skill.

Lola is a professional at what she does. From the moment I walked into my first lesson, I could tell she was very knowledgeable about music. Beyond music, she is a very kind and welcoming woman who is patient and understanding. She talks with you and really cares about what you're saying. She is a great teacher for anyone of all levels of experience in music and I recommend her for everyone.

My 4 years old daughter loves Pei-Hsuan! I highly recommend her!

Pei-Hsuan understands how to engage kids and get them interested in music and piano. She tailors the lesson to fit kids’ short attention span and keep them focused.

Pei-Hsuan is encouraging and patient. My daughter is a sensitive girl with a big ego. Pei-Hsuan recognizes her improvement and points out her mistakes in a positive way.

My daughter just completed her first recital. I’m so proud of her and I feel so lucky to have Pei-Hsuan as her teacher.
Esther
Pei-Hsuan is such a down to earth teacher. She loves her students, and has so much passion when it comes to teaching. She has an excellent pair of ears, and her technique is flawless. I have learned so much from her... not just a teacher, but also a friend!
Fang
I have known Tiana personally for a few years now and she is one of the most kind-hearted person I know and is willing to help at each opportunity. She is also an excellent pianist with total command of the instrument and is highly experienced collaborating with different musicians. With all the above qualities, I am sure she will be a great piano teacher for any student who is lucky to have her.

"It was a good experience to have lesson with Ally on line. She is a good teacher with experience and patience. My son had 10 lessons with her, started from zero knowledge to a good simple song . He played piano for 5 more years, maybe this helps him to understand the notes easier. We definitely will go back to Ally for more lessons when we need her help."

"I have been doing online vocal lessons with Shubha for a short time, and it was an amazing choice!! I love to sing, but I've never been super confident in it. She helps me learn vocal warm ups that have really allowed me to expand my range and feel like I have the confidence to actually perform live. The practice has been invaluable to me and really inspiring. She's given me that nudge to say yes to singing and feel like I can accept more gigs and feel ready to perform."

"What a teacher! I have known Lana for twelve years and have always been impressed with both her passion and dedication. Both my sons took piano lessons with Lana.
She has great communication skills , every lesson with Lana was educational and exciting. Besides learning technical skills my boys have developed a positive attitude to the music. Today they are college students, but they still keep playing the piano, listening to good music and attending classical music concerts. So much of this is due to Lana's influence. It's the best result I could have wished for my children's musical education."

"If you are looking for a piano teacher that teaches gospel music Carl is the one.
Carl is the best piano instructor that I ever had. I am 68 and I haven't taken lessons in years. I was afraid that because of my age I would have trouble remembering what I learned in the past. I have only had 3 lessons so far and I am already playing a gospel song. Carl's teaching approach is excellent. and he has a lot of patience. I am remembering things that I learned when I was young and Carl's approach to teaching gospel music is excellent. I am learning how chords are created in a way that I never learned before. Even though I take online piano lessons, it seems like Carl is in the same room with me. It's amazing how he can see me as well as my piano keyboard and I can see him and his keyboard. We talk to each other as if we are in the same room. I highly recommend him to teach all ages because he has a lot of patience."

"My son and I have been taking piano lessons from Corinne for almost a year. She is a lovely person, extremely patient and dedicated to teaching. She genuinely cares about her students. Corinne is quite gifted working with young children as well as adults. I took piano lessons as a child, and she immediately assessed where to resume instruction. She took a totally different approach with my six year old son, who had no experience. Even though he had just started to read and write in school, she used a very understandable, age- appropriate method with him. He is now playing the piano while reading basic music at the same time. She knows exactly how much and how hard to gently push, in order to encourage improvement each week. Corinne is also very professional, dependable, punctual and takes the time you spend with her seriously. I highly recommend Corinne as a piano teacher. We enjoy our lessons immensely."

"One lesson in and I can tell Mel is the perfect instructor for me. I have been playing the guitar for about 2 years now with no formal instruction. Mel quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses, and immediately gave me practice drills to help correct bad fingering habits I had developed over the course of my self teaching. Furthermore, after only one lesson, it is very apparent Mel knows where I want to go with my playing and already has a plan to help me get there. I can't tell you how excited I am to have Mel as my online guitar teacher.
