I tend to be very patient with students and understand that if they are not enjoying the lesson they will not learn or practice as much as they should. I try to get my students playing music quickly, once they are playing and not just practicing it becomes fun. I use small duo pieces that allows the student to learn a very simple melody then play along with me. This become quite enjoyable in a very short amount of time. For students who are more advanced lessons and my approch can vary widely. Either way, I always try to make it fun and as informative and helpful as possible.
My love and passion for teaching began when I was a teenager. As I mentioned, it was initially a way of earning extra spending money that led to a career. With so many years of teaching experience, I have developed a teaching method that is fun and proven to work. I have worked with students of all ages and ability levels, from children to adults, beginners to advance. I tailor the lessons to fit the students goals. Whether it be learning how to read, understand theory, improve technique, or just learning your favorite songs, I can make your musical dreams come true.
I started professionally teaching bass and guitar in high school. I still have all of my students that I started out with. Making sure that my students don't get bored during a lesson is my main goal. Most students don't practice what they were taught in a lesson if the lesson was boring. I make sure that all my students stay happy in the lesson and excited to learn new things.
For teaching children, I approach teaching as to the execution of everyday and fun pieces, so that the child learns by, and in turn I introduce aspects of academic learning necessary to create a solid base. In the same way,with young and adults, I make a work placement of the necessary techniques for a good and fast implementation, from technical learning exercise repetitive and daily ices, as well as the elaboration of a plan that involves their daily chores. Music is present in everything we do, from this philosophy we reached a deep and fast learning.
I am a professional working musician. I play in all kinds of groups, as a multi instrumentalist. I have my own groups with original music. I compose, teach, study, arrange, perform, improvise and know major theory behind both music and instrument performance. Having played music all my life, it is my passion, and what I love to do. I want to help other students on their way. As a professional who has a degree in music, I feel I am very much proficiently accomplished enough to take on many types and levels of students and teach them professionally.

In home lessons are great for both adults and children alike. Everyone has a busy schedule, and by choosing in home lessons, learning an instrument becomes extremely convenient. There is no need to spend time and money traveling to a studio when you can have the teacher come right to your home.
A common choice that students have when buying a bass is going with either a 4 string bass or a 5 string bass. A 5 string will be most useful if you are interested in heavy metal or hard rock music, as it will allow you to reach lower pitches. As a beginner student, a 4 string bass is perfectly sufficient. Reliable brands for basses include Ibanez, Gibson, and Fender.
Bass can be a really fun instrument for older children to start. If the student is interested in rock or jazz groups, bass is a great option. While older students are able to handle the large instrument and the thicker strings, many younger students under 10 tend to have difficulty. For this reason, we recommend that our younger students wait until they are older to begin bass lessons.
All of our Musika teachers are highly qulified and able to teach everything the student will need to be successful with their instrument. While no specific teaching method is used by each teacher, if a student has a particular teaching style they are interested in, we will work with you to find a teacher who uses that method. All students will work on reading music, playing with correct technique, and becoming a better musician overall.
Any adult can start bass lessons with Musika. Even with no prior experience, bass can be a great instrument to start learning music. Bass is utilized in many popular genres and adults can learn to play along with their favorite songs.

I am a beginning guitar player that has now taken five lessons with Jeff. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff has a guitar teacher! I have learned more in five lessons than the months I spent trying to learn on my own. Jeff has introduced me to music apps that I can use during my practice sessions, followed up our lessons with comments and/or music, is very encouraging - yet holds high standards. During my lessons I feel that Jeff is very observant and tuned in to your positioning when playing - whether it be your wrist, your arm, or your fingers. He always offers recommendations on ways to try to fix something that I might be struggling with. He really pays attention. As an aside, Jeff is a very talented songwriter and musician. Check him out on YouTube. His songs are very beautiful and inspirational. I'm honored to be his student! - Linda

Bill has been great with my 2 young children (age 3 & 6). He has integrated games into the lessons - they have enjoyed showing us how to play the games when it is time to practice piano. Bill has been easy to contact and rescheduling has not been a problem if we have a conflict at our regular lesson time.

Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.

Giorgi has made learning cello even more fun. From the sympathetic, "It is hard" to the precise, "Be careful about the curve of the thumb" he has strengthened learning in every lesson, without being overwhelming. He started playing a little duet on only the 3rd lesson or so, which made me feel, even as a beginner, that I'm already starting to make (occasionally screachy) music. He has suggested a variety of drills and practice techniques which have also sped up the process a lot. And he has a good sense of humor and surprising amount of patience.

Rahsaan is an extremely talented player who relates really well with my teenagers. He has them both interested in learning. Given Rahsaan's expertise, it's clear that even though they are beginners now, they can learn from him for a long time to come. He's a real nice laid-back guy and both the boys really enjoy their time with him. I've been very impressed and pleased with the experience.

Laura is a fabulous teacher. She explains concepts to me using concrete examples so that I can understand changes that I need to make to my posture, breathing, phrasing, etc. She makes warm-up exercises fun, and she's got a great sense of humor over all. Her teaching style is collaborative, more egalitarian (she respects what I already know and meets me at my level), tailored to my particular interests and strengths, and I always look forward to our lessons!
Review by Anita
Our daughter has only been playing the piano since March. Tony replaced our other teacher who had a job transfer and could no longer teach. Tony is fun and encouraging. My daughter is playing Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and is playing the piano more than ever before. Very happy so far with Mr Tony
Review by Natalie Kretcher
I really like her. And as an adult student, a good teacher who keeps the pace up but still keeps it reasonable in terms of difficulty is really hard to find. She does a great job of explaining little detail things in terms I (as a musically challenged human) can understand. I'm having a blast! 10/10 would recommend!

Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
