I’ve been taking online lessons from Connie for 6 months now and couldn’t be happier. She helped me develop a good foundation and has been so encouraging along the way! I love that she pays attention to detail and goes out of her way to write weekly lesson notes, make recordings for me, adds in music theory and is helping me towards my first exam. Connie’s passion for music and teaching is evident and I’m thankful I found her online!
Mona
My son has been taking lessons from Connie and we love having her as his teacher! She helps him with his confidence playing solo and also working through school orchestra music... he’s now one of the more advanced in his group! Connie focuses on the details to set up a good foundation and has been great helping him with some bad habits he devolved years ago. She has lots of experience with every age group and teaches all the way through very advanced level. Thankful she came recommended to us!

I believe that every person is able to play the violin at some level. My goal as the teacher is to communicate knowledge in such a way that the student becomes more self-aware. Awareness is the key to advancement and overall success on the instrument. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.

I have been teaching piano lessons for eight years. I care about my students and want to inspire them to follow their passions. I love how the positive influence of music can help to counter the negativity and divisiveness that is all too common in our world. I strive to expose students to a variety of musical styles. Lessons are targeted to each student's individual needs.

Great first lesson with Avi! Really enjoyed it, laid back and fun!
David N.
Avi has been teaching me for four months and somehow he has turned me into a semi-decent guitar player. I didn’t think it was possible to make so much progress so fast but it’s all due to Avi. I cannot imagine a better teacher. Knowledgeable, patient, kind and just has a way to take music from a page to the student’s hands. If I could give Avi six stars, I would.
Clay B.
Awesome first lesson with Avi! Natural ability to connect with kids!

HELLO! I am passionate about helping young singers achieve their goals, whether they be getting into a college music program, getting a lead in the school musical, impressing at karaoke, or just being slightly less embarrassing to your family when belting out pop tunes in the car! No dream is too small!

My teaching philosophy is simple: Strive to be a better singer today than you were yesterday. You cannot achieve great success without thousands of smaller successes along the way!

I have been a professional opera singer for 20 years (and plan to continue to be once it is safe to have live performances again...). With over 22 years of experience teaching both classical and musical theatre techniques, I can help students of all musical interests and backgrounds achieve their musical goals.

Send me a message if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Dr. Jonathan

I have sung leading and supporting roles with Cincinnati Opera, Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Opera Memphis, Central City Opera, Opera Omaha, Salt Marsh Opera, Dayton Opera, Kentucky Opera, Ohio Light Opera, Opera New Jersey, and internationally in England, Italy, and Bulgaria. Former students hav

Dr. Stinson is well-versed and experienced in all areas of voice, including opera, classical, musical theater, and pop. While working with him, I was able to improve both my vocal technique and my vocal confidence tenfold. Dr. Stinson also goes out of his way to provide opportunities for his students to perform, including organizing a musical theater showcase for 6 older students. In a classical music setting, he opened the door for students to learn the mechanics of theater singing, which I greatly appreciated. I believe that working with Dr. Stinson contributes to what makes me a good musician today, and I would highly recommend him to anyone of any age looking for a voice teacher.
Michael
Jonathan is by far the best vocal instructor I've ever had. Having worked with him for 2 full years while in undergrad, he completely reworked my voice from the ground up, re-teaching what I thought I knew. You won't find a more talented vocal teacher.

Marvelous instructor for an old student (76). Apparently if you can teach young students, you are best equipped to handle the older students.

Fabulous teacher! My son's taking beginning trumpet lessons. Ryan is patient, attentive, encouraging, and knowledgeable. Ryan is punctual and flexible when rescheduling needs to be arranged. He responds to email, phone calls, etc. in a timely manner. My son enjoys learning from him. It's a pleasure to have him as my son's teacher.

"I've been going to Eric weekly for over a year and he's been great. I've always wanted to play an instrument but never took the plunge and I'm very happy I did. He's super patient with me, and takes the time to make sure I can play real songs. We spent a lot of time at the beginning getting me to play normal songs instead of diving into theory first which I really appreciated. I could see myself starting to play. We added heavy doses of theory into the class throughout the year and now I understand how music is made. I'm a slow learner and need to practice more on my own but now I can actually play!"
