I am a very experience,patient,encouraging and inventive instructor. I have a passion for music which is reflected in my teaching. I tailor each lesson for each student: their interests,abilities. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts,Boston with a Bachelor of Music,with a Minor.in Education. I have also studied at the Berklee College of Music Boston,MA, and Tansen Music College, Kolkatta, India.I have taught Music in public/private schools for grades K-12 and private lessons for ages 4-90. I am a Certified Music Educator for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
The method of teaching doesn't change for the age of the person I'm teaching. The method I use is this: 1) Assess where the student is in life 2) Assess where the student is musically 3) Assess the needs and desires of the student (and guardians, if applicable) 4) Review various in-print and self-made resources 5) Develop a flexible comprehensive cirriculumn 6) Encouage, encourage, encourage
I began teaching 7 years ago in high school and I have continually taught students of all ages since. As a flutist trained with teachers in jazz, classical, and pop, I am experienced playing and teaching many styles including classical, opera, swing, pop, and musicals. Along with the flute, I hope students will also learn music theory, orchestration, and singing. By giving students a holistic musical education, I facilitate a rewarding experience for students. If students would like to learn a new genre, I am willing to guide their artistic journey to find what suits them best. I am a devoted researcher and take pleasure in finding new pieces specific each lesson.
The student must be having fun while studying their instrument; otherwise, the student will not practice. I am able to engage student musicians in taking ownership for their learning. I have experience creating lesson plans and developing curriculum in order to give student musicians the readiness they need to achieve their musical goals. I am patient and flexible. Moreover, I have a variety of ways of explaining fundamental practice techniques to students specific to their instrument so they can persevere through their musical challenges.
I am a professional composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, engineer, and music teacher currently living in Boston, MA. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2015 with a BM in Songwriting. I choose to spend the vast majority of my time in music, whether recording somebody's song, writing symphonies in my bedroom, gigging in the Greater Boston Area, teaching, or just arguing about music over dinner with a friend.

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!
Most flutists begin in 4th grade. Unlike the piano or specific string instruments, it is not a good idea to start the flute before the student enters elementary school. The student does need to have the strength to appropriately hold the instrument, and have the lung capacity to blow into the flute and produce a supported sound. The flute is easy to hold, carry, and care for, so many young players find it an attractive option.
Flute lessons can occur in your home for the same price as in-studio lessons. The student lets Musika know what days and times work best, and we arrange for an instructor to come to your home, at no extra cost to you!
At the beginning level, renting a flute is the best option. For younger, smaller flutists, the student might consider using a curved head joint to make to the flute easier to hold. As the student progresses, consider purchasing a more advanced model with open hole keys and B foot joint.
Review by Jeff N.
Travis is an extremely knowledgeable guitarist and teacher. Travis is equally comfortable in playing/teaching jazz, rock, blues, or classical styles. I really like the way he explains things and he has the ability to make difficult material seem simpler. Travis is very likeable, enthusiastic, and always very professional. I think Travis would be great teaching either children or adults because he's very patient. My learning experience with Travis has been outstanding. He taught me some great techniques for chord substitution and for soloing. I'll continue to work with Travis because he inspires me to be a better guitarist. I think he could really help me with composing because he writes some great songs too! Thanks Travis!

“My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.” – Karl B., C.P.A., Aug 2015

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.
Review by Wendy
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.
Review by Jaima Woodiwiss
Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!

"My daughter has been a student with Mark for over a year. She has come so far and has learned so much in such a short time. Mark is extremely talented and knowledgeable. He is very serious, patient and super nice. If your child or if you really WANT to learn the drums, then I highly recommend Mark. He is our third instructor and the best one yet! You will not be disappointed." Michelle S.

Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.

Lindsey has been coming to our house to give saxophone lessons to our 12 year old daughter for about a month. She is an absolute joy. She is extremely knowledgeable, flexible with her schedule, and my daughter thinks she is "fun" and "cool". We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting music lessons. A+
Review by Valerie Moore
Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!
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.
