gfire is a fun, encouraging and patient music teacher - who wants you to love music! She tailors lessons to what you want. She has taught our girls piano and voice for four years - and they ENJOY going to their lessons! She's coached them (successfully) through a number of musical and a fine arts school academy audition. She's a great teacher!Oct 16, 2019gfire's reply
Thanks so much Elizabeth!! I really love working with Corinne and Marielle!!
gfire is a wonderful piano and music teacher. She is patient with my anxious daughter, and my daughter has learned so much from her. Highly recommend.Oct 21, 2019Review from Googlegfire's reply
Thank you very much Andrea!! Your daughter has been doing an excellent job on both piano and recorder. :)
I’m a singer in a psych rock band and have taken lessons from gfire on and off over the last 5 years. I had experience as a punk/rock shout-singer, but when our backup singer left I had to learn to sing harmonies. She really helped me hone in my issues of pitch control and taught me to break the music down and work through it the most effective ways. She is extremely patient, kind and passionate. I would highly recommend her to any kind of singer, child or adult!Dec 12, 2019
GFire was very patient with my kids yet she made them work and progress throughout their piano years. GFire is fun and enthusiast about piano and music and shares her passion with my kids.Nov 6, 2019gfire's reply
Merci beaucoup Emmanuelle! Your kids are a pleasure to work with. :)
GFire worked with my 4 year old with singing lessons and did a great job making her feel comfortable. She created a fun no-pressure atmosphere and really meets kids where they are at and helps them grow musically.Oct 27, 2019gfire's reply
Thanks so much Anne! I really enjoyed helping her with her lovely singing voice!!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing structure for singing, piano, folk guitar, & songwriting lessons: $40- half hour $60- 45 minutes $80 - hour
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?With singing customers, I ask what your goals are, what level you are at as a singer, what range you have if you know it, and what are some of the songs you wish to learn to sing well. We set up a weekly lesson (or more if needed, if there is an upcoming show or audition) along with a plan for a minimum of 3 practices in between voice lessons. The process is similar with my piano, folk guitar, and songwriting students. We will focus on your musical goals and tailor make a lesson and practice plan that will allow you to achieve those goals.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied singing and piano at the University of Maryland, College Park. I have studied with many vocal instructors world wide, including Seth Riggs of Los Angeles, California (Speech Level Singing), and Peter Giles of Canterbury, England (Science of Singing). I have also studied with piano teachers in classical, rock, and jazz styles. On folk guitar, I focus on finger picking and flat picking, geared mainly for the singer/songwriter who wishes to accompany her/himself on the guitar. With songwriting, I studied with Pat Pattison from Berklee College of music. My original songs have been played on over 200 radio and TV stations world wide, including the show "UnderCurrents" on NPR radio.
