I hold a bachelors degree in Music Education. I have just completed my Masters in Music Education degree and am eager to build up a woodwind studio again! Clarinet is my primary instrument and can teach beginning, intermediate and advanced students. I also can teach beginning and intermediate sax and flute. I strive to create experiences with my students where instant success is being achieved in each lesson. I love to incorporate fun and variation in my teaching, no two lessons are the same!! Its never to late to begin learning an instrument, all ages and abilities are welcome!

Stephanie was just fabulous, introducing my grandson to the saxophone. She was very nurturing and encouraging, yet gave me tons of information. I highly recommend her.

Online Music Theory Teacher

Covering any part of historical periods including the middle ages and renaissance, to contemporary practices. Students often find music theory much less intimidating and more fascinating than they might first expect. Rather than being based on rules and dogmas, my approach is based on music as heard and experienced.

Confused by music theory? Or just want to get more comfortable with reading and writing notes, rhythms, and chords? I can help!

Lisa's first formal introduction to music came when her mother, a masters student at the Eastman school of Music in Rochester, enrolled her in violin lessons at age 6. The family moved to Miami, FL, but Lisa chose to move back north to attend college at the University of Rochester, and continue he

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!

Learn to read and write music. Understand the building blocks of chords and scales. Ear training practice and practical application to all instruments.

About Natone

Hi, I can teach you to play your favorite songs, make your own songs, or how to record your music. I have been playing guitar over ten years. My current focus is Classical guitar, I can play any style though. I am in the process of creating curriculum to assist guitarists and musicians in general.

I had a great first guitar lesson with Natone. Natone cares about helping you learn guitar and is very professional. I highly recommend him.
Rei K.
My children had never played any instruments before. But Natone was very patient and explained the theory and the fundamentals to them. Thank you!
Aaron
I worked with Natone for over a year at Taylor guitars. Every single day, as i was entering the property, I could hear Natone playing amazing pieces of music. Classical, Blues, or inspired pieces he just made up right then and there. He plays all his music with such a passion and focus that only an experience and well practiced hand could do while still being one of the humblest guys I have ever met. I started taking classical lessons from Natone a while back and at every lessson i learned something new that was vital to my growth and understanding as a guitar player, such as finger picking patterns, music theory, and songs that put his teachings into practice. He taught me how to play Bouree in E minor by Bach and Francisco Tarrega's Arabe Capricho. Natone is one the best and it was an honor and a privilige to have learned from him. Natone, wherever you are, good luck and good hunting.
