Awesome working with Chris! My daughter has tried piano lessons twice in the past and her interests always fell off, but with Chris she's motivated to even PRACTICE without being told. I'm loving it!!
After exchanging a few emails with Steve and one other potential teacher/coach, I chose to work with Steve. We have been meeting weekly for the last few weeks and the experience has been great! He is very talented, not only on the guitar but in teaching and helping me to progress. I'm an older student (over 50) who has had lessons before during my younger years. My experience with Steve so far (and I expect this will not change) has been wonderful - I look forward to the sessions and my practice is productive. His attitude and approach are supportive and encouraging. I strongly recommend that you give him a try if you are thinking about taking lessons at all.
Nate immediatlely replied to my request for guitar lessons, and went beyond what I would have expected by offering to go guitar shopping with me. He is extremely talented, and he explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He was also very flexible in setting up a lesson time that worked with my schedule.
It is great that Jan comes to the house for my son's lessons. He enjoys her as a teacher.
With over 20 years of teaching experience and over 40 years of playing experience, I teach students, age 12 through adult. Rock and roll, country and bluegrass. Electric and acoustic.
I started taking guitar lessons with Curt about a year ago. I had no previous music lessons whatsoever and felt it may be a little late in life to learn to play. Curt is very patient with beginners, like myself. I was nervous at my first lesson. Curt was able to break the music and chords down to a level for me to understand. He made me feel very comfortable and I appreciate the time he's taken to help me learn to play the guitar, which is a lifelong dream. I have highly recommended Curt to several friends.
We partner with music students to help them develop their skills. We also produce live music, record artists, and arrange preexisting music and original compositions. We partner with businesses to maximize returns on their marketing efforts to gain new customers and clients as well as repeat customers and clients through social media marketing, web development, and custom marketing tools based on their target audiences.
We teach our students to make manageable goals for each lesson so that they can feel a sense of achievement throughout the entire learning process. The smaller goals keep the students motivated constantly enabling them to become a better musician. By focusing on the process of learning, students are learning a set of skills that will enable them to learn pieces quicker and allow for a more rewarding end product. They also are able to apply these learning skills to many different areas of study, which enhances their personal growth. Through SK piano academy, we hope to create an enjoyable learning experience and share what we love most with everyone.
I am a voice talent, instructor and coach, particularly in the musical theatre style. Audition techniques and acting coaching are my specialties.
I provide a complete instruction for all string instruments, bowed and fretted. I also give a complete instruction in music theory. I work with live instrumental performance groups. Composition and arranging services are offered. Fees are $35.00 per half-hour lesson. You provide the materials. My goal is to provide each student with the necessary knowledge and skill set to enable them to perform either as a soloist in their home and perform as a member of an ensemble, such as a church, neighborhood bands, etc. I can get this done in a two-year period if the student is diligent with his/her practice routine.
My method is fairly orthodox -- I teach what is needed for a student to actually be able to play songs in just a few weeks. While we will learn the basic chord shapes and scales, I will also teach alternative tuning, many of which have much simpler chord shaping, enabling some popular songs to be learned even by the beginner.
I try to give people the best experience possible by making things as simple as possible.
I train on breathing properly for singing. I train on all styles, and I have trained in opera, classical, pop, and R&B. I teach site reading, give my students a schedule to practice at home, and help them find their own sound. I train in vibrato, falsetto, and all other mainstream voice diversions. I can train male or female. I teach at a studio in Virginia Beach called OBW Theatre Company. If close or nearby, I can drive to a student's residence, if necessary. It's $30 for a half hour if you don't want to take a whole-hour session.
I am a piano, cello and music theory teacher. I have a BA in Music (Cello Performance, Minor in Piano) earned from a music college in Russia. I am highly professional. Since 2010, my students participated in over 25 recitals and concerts at College of William and Mary, Crosswalk Community Church, King's Way Church, Tabernacle Baptist Church, Greenfield Senior Living, Patriot's Colony, and many other venues. My students also participated in The National Federation of Music Clubs for the last 4 years in a row. All of them received superior rating, and four of them already received Golden Cups. I have been judging piano solo events for the last 3 years. Our recent performing project was playing in the Bard's Market at the Virginia Shakespeare Festival. Three of my students did an exceptional job entertaining the audience by playing a classical piano repertoire. I also provide wedding/special occasion entertainment (cello, piano, and violin) as a trio, duet, solo in any combination.
I can give the best of both worlds in my music lessons by combining an intuitive, ear training based approach with a strong foundation in music theory. My hope is to teach my students the skills they need to keep growing as musicians long after their lessons cease.
