My daughter, Grace, has taken piano lessons at Musics Elements for the past 3 years. We couldn't be happier! Jamie Lonto has been her instructor and he absolutely knows how to make lessons fun and how to connect with kids of all ages. He was so smart to find out what music she would like instead of just having her play one style of music. I have several friends who have taken voice and guitar there as well and have loved it. The recitals certainly show how enthusiastic and dedicated Anita and her whole staff are at teaching and celebrating music! I highly recommend Music Elements!
I offer private music lessons for all ages. Lessons are offered for all levels of singing and beginner to intermediate piano. My focus is on assisting each student to develop healthy musical technique and engage them creatively in their pursuit of repertoire in the styles of their choice. I strive to bring a sense of pride and joy to each and every student by helping them discover their instrument as well as nurturing their creativity and artistry. My lessons are geared towards each student's individual goals and needs. I guide my students by using a variety of methods and techniques based on voice science and body awareness in a supportive and encouraging manner.
I am currently taking guitar lessons with Jeanne and she is fantastic! She makes learning easy and fun. I would recommend her to anyone who is just beginning or who is experienced and wants to perfect their skill.
I have been taking piano lessons from Marietta since October 2014 at her studio in Watertown, MA. I am a thirty something year professional who decided to learn piano and have been looking for a piano teacher for a while until finally found Marietta on Thumbtack. Upon meeting her I realized that she is the one and my search is over. Marietta is a highly professional piano teacher, she is patient with beginner students like me and very passionate about teaching. She has students at all ages and levels. She highly emphasizes on correct coordination and technique and make sure you have adopted the right hand skills before she moves on to the next lesson. She is very nice, supportive and approachable and you can always ask any questions you might have. I live and work far from Watertown, but I think piano lessons with Marietta is totally worth the 15 mile commute.
Music Theory Tutoring There are at least couple of reasons why you might desire music theory tutoring. 1) You are entering into an undergraduate or graduate music program and are required to take a music theory placement exam. Many colleges provide "practice" or "sample" exams on their websites, so you can have an idea as to what's expected. 2) You are already a student who is doing poorly in the subject and you must raise your grade. There are also reasons beyond these, of course, which I'm happy to accommodate. We can hold as few or as many lessons as we need for you to get where you should be. Whenever possible, we will clarify your school's expectations and work toward that goal. I teach music theory remotely via video conference or from my home in Lowell, MA (downtown, near the Tsongas Center). I typically do not travel unless you are within an extremely close proximity to me. Tutoring sessions are either 1 or 1.5 hours and rates are $40 or $50, respectively. The first session is $30. Payments are made online via PayPal, and all payments must be received no later than 48 hours prior to each session. If a payment is not received by this time, I reserve the right to cancel the session. All payments are nonrefundable. All sessions must be planned at least four days in advance, preferably one week in advance. If multiple sessions are planned in advance, the above payment policy still applies for each individual session. There is no required commitment beyond one session at a time. Piano Lessons I have been teaching piano to students, five years old and older, at a community music center for the last year and privately prior to that in the Roslindale and Jamaica Plain areas. Currently, I seek to increase my number of private students by teaching also from my home in Lowell. I make it fun and enjoyable for my students and try to pull from a number of different teaching lineages. I use method books to introduce students to the written language of music while simultaneously working on tone production and articulation by way of aural imitation. Lesson lengths for younger children can vary according to attention spans, but are typically a half hour long. Lesson lengths for teenagers and adults are typically one hour. My hourly rate is $40 and $20 for a half-hour lesson. The first lesson, the "trial lesson," is half off. Should a student commit thereafter, payment is made for a complete month at the beginning of each calendar month, pro-rated if a student begins mid-month. There are no refunds. Makeups for missed lessons are handled on a case-by-case basis. Students are taught how to practice and are expected to practice daily and diligently. Practice times may vary from student to student, with youngest students setting aside 10 minutes per day, at the least. Parents should help their children when they practice. Students are expected to own their own piano, acoustic or electric. It is crucial that this piano have 88 keys with weighted action as well as pedals. Parents are encouraged to be present at all lessons, silently observe, and take notes if desired. A post-lesson rundown with parents clarifies expectations for the next lesson. An assignment book is required for each student, in which I write the expectations for next week and any other helpful information. It is always helpful if a parent can read music, but it is not necessary. Recordings of the music being worked on will be provided so that the parent can know what the music should sound like. About Me I have been teaching music theory, musicianship (ear training), and class keyboard to undergraduates for a total of nine years and piano to beginners for a total of two years. I hold a PhD in music composition. My degrees come from the Berklee College of Music, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and the University of Oregon School of Music. I am adjunct faculty of music at two colleges as well as a piano instructor at a community music center. I am a composer of, primarily, chamber music, and my music is performed internationally.
Josh is an excellent, engaging piano teacher. My 6 year old really enjoyed her lessons and was able to grasp the lessons quickly. Other staff we delt with have also been nice to work with. My only issue with DeAngelis Studio of Music is that the building is not handicapped accessible, piano lessons are on the third floor,, which made it difficult for me. Josh even offered to come down the stairs to get my daughter and bring her back down, which was very nice, but at her age, she wanted me present, and the stairs were a challenge.
Our son started piano lessons with Robin at 5.5 years old. When choosing a teacher my main concern was finding a teacher who could provide a positive and encouraging method to motivate a young learner, not baby him, and not be so strict that he was scared or turned off from music. After 6 months of weekly practice, I have discovered that Robin not only met the goals, but has far exceeded them. The lessons are strict, which is necessary, with a little guy, but in a very positive light. Robin is joyful in her methods. You can tell she really enjoys teaching. And it shows with our sons new ability. He is already playing songs that include sharps, multiple hand movements, and songs with eighth notes, all while singing in pitch. (Added bonus). I was thinking he'd be at twinkle twinkle little star. Instead he is the little star. Our son has said, thank you for bringing me to piano lessons Daddy. I really like Mrs Robin as teacher. The best part of this process is the community Robin has built in her home and out. There is no better method for learning a musical instrument, than to perform. There are regular performances and twice a year recitals. This positive interaction with other students and families I don't think is very common with piano teachers. Even though I am not taking lessons, Robin has even given me some direct help in preparation for my own piano performances. I would recommend Robins Music Studio to anyone committed to learn. Thanks Thumbtack for helping me find a gem.
My son, now 10, has taken piano lessons from Debbie for 1 1/2 years and has made a lot of progress. Debbie clearly enjoys working with young people. She encourages her students to work hard while maintaining a mellow, fun vibe.
When I made the decision to revisit piano lessons after several years, I found Michael Joseph on Thumbtack. After 6 months of lessons Michael helped me gain skills, confidence and a passion for the piano. Michael is highly knowledgable, patient and congenial and I would highly recommend this talented instructor!
