I am a violinist and string teacher from Augusta, Georgia. I recently moved to Pittsburgh where I am happily continuing my career as a teacher and performer.
Hello! I am a motivated private music teacher who loves making the process of learning or developing your musical instrument challenging, exciting, and most importantly fun! I am an experienced private music instructor, professional contemporary singer, and actress who recently moved to Pittsburgh from Boston, MA. I have worked with many students including rock singers, opera stars in the making, classical and jazz flutists, beginning pianists, and people just looking to have fun learning a new instrument. I am a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music where I graduated with a degree in Vocal Performance and was awarded highest honors upon completion of my degree. I have performed in some of Boston’s most well known concert halls such as Berklee College of Music ‘s, Berklee Performance Center and New England Conservatory’s, Jordan Hall. I have also appeared in a few major motion pictures such as Ted and independent films in the Pittsburgh area. Beyond this, I have also just finished my graduate studies and have received a Master’s degree in music therapy. I use my training and understanding from this program to provide a well-structured and supportive environment for students of all ages and skill levels. I am currently actively performing around the Pittsburgh area and working on my debut album to be released within the next year.
I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a degree in flute performance in 2008, and have been pursuing a career in music ever since. I have always loved performing, and now have ten years of professional performance experience under my belt to share with my students. I have enjoyed opportunities to play with a wide variety of ensembles including: classical/orchestral, chamber music, contemporary ensembles, flute quartet, musicals, jazz combos, folk bands, traditional Irish music, and free improvisation accompanying poetry or narrative.

Taking flute lessons in your home offers a great way to master your skills on the instrument without ever leaving your home! Many students and parents find this very convenient as there is no additional time for travel.
The flute can be an incredibly rewarding instrument to study as an adult. Of the woodwind instruments, it can relatively easy to learn to play and most adults notice progress right away! The flute can be a wonderful instrument to play as a soloist or with fellow musicians.
Musika offers customized lessons for each student. Additionally, teachers will focus on posture, breathing, tone, articulation, note-reading, and instrument care. Musika's network of teachers want every student to excel and they will do their best to help each player realize his or her potential!
The flute is the one of the smallest instrument in the band and is therefore easy for young players to transport and hold. Musika recommends beginning the flute around 7 or 8 when the student is old enough to properly hold the instrument and press the keys. The flute does take significant amount of lung capacity, so the player does need to have the physical requirements to produce a quality sound.
For a new flutist, Musika recommends renting initially and buying an instrument later on if the student has demonstrated some commitment. Reliable brands include Yamaha, Armstrong, and Gemeinhardt. More advanced players should consider a flute with open hole keys and a B foot joint. Very young players can use a curved head-joint to assist playing.

He is incredibly patient and really customizes his teaching style to the child. Both of my children are learning piano with him; they have learned so much and really enjoy the lessons. In fact, my daughter asked to learn another instrument (guitar) with him and is making great progress with that, too.

Mrs. Regnarene is an awesome teacher!!! She found musical aids that appealed to my 5 year old daughter and used them to help teach her piano. She has a lot of patience and I could tell she puts in the work before class to have a lesson ready for my daughter. She is always punctual, friendly and respectful. I would recommend her to any parents who want to start their kids off with a good foundation in piano. Jermain T. Riverview, FL

Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.

“My son has been instructed by Mark for almost four years. Mark is an outstanding teacher. His credentials are by themselves impressive, but his ability to relate his knowledge to kids is even more so. Connor's ability to understand and read music is fantastic. Mark also knows the performance side of playing drums and has encouraged Connor to actually incorporate his knowledge to play alone and in a band. He is patient and encouraging which is what motivates Connor to work and practice. He is a mentor as well as a teacher. He is superior at what he does and we highly recommend him.” Ro J.

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.
Review by Chrystal
I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

Dave is a fantastic teacher. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to students that I think is invaluable. At the same time, this does not limit him from working with beginning students. He is very communicative with the parents as far as schedule changes. We are so grateful to have found him!!

Usually I don't write reviews. I am compelled to write for Feng. I've experience finding/working with many music teachers over the years for different instruments (piano, flute, sax) for kids. I think Feng is the best, he is so passionate about music, he encourages the kids. He teaches thoroughly - you can tell he knows lot about saxophone. I would definitely recommend Feng!!

Darrell is A-Maz-Ing! He demands results from his students and therefore results come quickly. The time he spends teaching is intense and packed with great instruction. He is a tough teacher but offers lots of valuable instruction that is applicable for music as well as life in general. I highly recommend Darrell if you are ready for results!
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.
