Accepting new students ages 3 - adult in studio or online! Mission is to provide music lessons, educational classes, and life enrichment at an affordable price to anyone interested, regardless of ability, disability, aptitude, or cognitive ability, and to foster connections between students and families for individual and community growth. Piano lessons focus on hand/wrist health, proper technique, exploring a love of music, how music works, different musical types and genres, why things work together they way they do, and composing music if interested. We individualize lessons and work with students as a team to reach goals they set for themselves. We encourage students to select additional pieces that they’d like to learn, teaching technique and skill while working on fun songs, too. We simply go at whatever pace is comfortable for you and go step by step together. We often upload audio/video to help during practice and are available between lessons to answer questions.

Hello! I am a Baltimore-based violist studying at the Peabody Institute of Music. My primary goal in teaching viola is to help people make progress as efficiently as possible, with whatever intensity feels right for them. I encourage scales and a small technical regimen for sound production and conditioning, to go alongside practicing repertoire using a method that makes it simple to play cleanly and expressively. Understanding the logic great compositions are built with is essential for making that music truly come to life, so I am a big proponent of teaching music theory as a part of lessons. For beginning students, developing a good musical ear and enjoying exploring the possibilities of the viola always comes first.

Trusted teacher: What do you love to listen to? How do you create music that expresses the music that has deeply influenced you? The "how do you create that" is where technique, or music theory, shapes what compels you. There are a variety of techniques because there are a variety of sound possibilities (jazz, rock, classical, etc.). "In order to create that" music in your head, the basics of music have to be learned: pitch and rhythmical relationships. The most basic examples of pitch relationships are melody and harmony. If my availability works, I will gladly take in anyone who desires to explore all the basics and beyond. I greatly hope that any student considering lessons will read all of the information provided about myself on Apprentus. I will not begin a lesson with any student who does not answer the first five questions. Now, I believe I've covered enough ground for potential students to understand what my lessons will be about. So for now... enjoy the sounds and Au revoir!

Trusted teacher: I offer lessons in guitar/bass, piano/keyboard (classical/experimental/pop/jazz), composition/songwriting, production/recording (DAWs, mixing, editing etc). No matter what level we're on, as musicians and artists we're all part of a wonderful and strange ongoing human project, and I believe that it's my duty to share the knowledge and skills that I've accumulated throughout the course of my life and career. Over the years, my work has branched out in many different stylistic directions but I am firmly rooted in avant-garde/classical music. I hold two degrees in composition: a Master of Music '11 from the Yale School of Music where I also taught undergraduate lessons in composition; and a BA in Music Composition from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden ('09). I've written large scale works for orchestra, chamber pieces, solo music for a variety of instruments, works with multichannel electronics, and works for theater and dance. For those interested, my recorded work is easily accessible online on a variety of labels and my scores are available from Schott Music New York. As a pianist, I began formal training at age 6 and worked through much of the classical repertoire before deciding to focus fulltime on composition. I am also an accomplished studio musician, improviser (jazz/free/experimental), and a member of several groups/ensembles. A firm believer in the use of intuition as a primary tool in music making of all kinds, I would like our lessons to be shaped according to your needs and interests. No matter what level you are on, my goal will always be to offer you exactly what you need at each given step. I treat each student as a unique collaborative effort. Apart from technical and aesthetic approaches, it is usually very difficult and takes a long time to find one's 'voice' as a performer, writer or producer; this is inevitable except in rare cases, and I will endeavour to teach you to trust in your own abilities, overcome insecurities and doubts, and connect your artistic practice with a more unified mindset that goes beyond imagined technical and stylistic limitations and aesthetic policing. The main point is to eradicate unnecessary obstacles to your creativity and learn to trust your intuition and choices.

Trusted teacher: Emerging composer and full-time university student offering composition and performance tutoring, as well as music theory lessonsMethodology In composition lessons, I am very much about students finding their own voice and engaging with all types of music - not pigeonholing themselves into a certain practice. I methodically break down students work and give input on how to engage with certain musical language devices and theoretical boundaries; and also how to overcome these. Theory lessons are similar to a normal instrumental lesson, or like a school even. I teach students the theoretical knowledge through ear-training practices and written tasks - sometime compositional sometimes theoretical.
