Do you want to sing & play your favorite songs?

Do you dream of writing your own songs?

I have been teaching music privately since 2009 and LOVE to help my students sing and play their favorite songs all while becoming a well rounded musician.

We will get to the joy of playing as quickly as possible and as we go along we will fill in the music fundamentals - reading and writing music, rhythm, technique, songwriting, music theory and more. It will be a fun and enriching experience.

I can't wait to connect with you - to support and challenge you and help you make your musical dreams come true.

Marye combines discipline and skill with kindness and patience. She is a gifted teacher who cares deeply about her students, helping us increase our skills and grow and heal and express ourselves as human beings. I recommend her highly.
Wendy
There are piano teachers and then there is Marye. Marye is a graduate of one of the best music schools in the country. She combines yoga, psychology, singing, and digestible music theory to every lesson. You will stretch, sing, and clap your way to greater piano proficiency. Taking piano lessons from Marye is good for your soul.
Sue
“After decades of thinking I'd lost my ability to sing, I learned how to finally sing utilizing my diaphragm while studying with Marye! She helped me locate my vocal range, which was huge, while making it feel so inclusive and safe! The joy of singing has returned to my life through Marye's skilled, sensitive and sweetly cultivated music space.”

Matt continues to challenge me. His teaching methods are great - he doesn't just teach techniques, he immediately puts techniques to work by applying them to a song I would like to learn. He is also very good about explaining the reasoning behind certain techniques/habits.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

For classical guitar the first thing I do when I meet a student is to interview the student and find out why they want to learn how to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills required to learn those songs. I create an organized binder guitar workbook and having a teaching degree I create all of the lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, chords, rhythm, scales, arpeggios, songs, song form, and exercises etc. I use a color coded method to teach scales, chords and theory that I created that help students not only understand scales but also they are able to see visually where chords come from. I break down each song into easy digestible parts so ...

I only have high accolades for David. I've learned more from David in the mere 5 lessons then I learned in a years worth of lessons in the past. His method of teaching is perfect with the right amount of homework. He customizes the lesson for the type of music I ultimately want to play with a good balance of theory and practical lessons to get me there. Bravo!!!

"Classical guitar lessons with David

Off and on since my 20s I've fooled around with guitar lessons but never lasted very long. I am 62 now. I relayed this to David and he laid out an organized plan for systematic improvement. But he was very honest with me about the importance of good practice habits. I've been with him almost 5 months and showing progress. His enthusiasm and patience is appreciated. Thanks, Dave."

"Hands down, Nick is an incredible music teacher. My online guitar lessons with him are greatly helpful for both my guitar playing and for when I eventually return to playing piano (I played piano for several years when I was younger). In addition to his knowledge of music and pedagogy, his responsiveness is amazing. When I first started lessons with him, I had an electric guitar with goals of learning hard rock and metal. After a few lessons, my goals drastically changed, and I am now learning on a classical guitar. Despite this massive shift in focus, the quality of Nick’s lessons has not diminished in any way. With his help, I picked out a more appropriate guitar and the lessons have only gotten better. If you want someone who is not only incredibly skilled but also knows how to teach his set of skills, Nick is the teacher for you, regardless of which genre of guitar music you want to learn. I will add that his online lessons are just as good as any in-person instruction."

He is very knowledgeable about the guitar, a really nice guy, very easy going and it was so nice to take lessons in a home rather than a tiny music store studio. He explained things well and gave assignments that were appropriate for my level. Unfortunately I wasn't able to continue due to physical issues. I would recommend him 100%."

Learning Classical Guitar: Can I Use Tabs or Should I Read Music?

Should Classical Violinists Learn to Improvise?

A few weeks ago the Washington Post published an article about musician Hannah Hanh and her struggles with improvisation.  As a classical violinist, she hadn't had much training for spontaneity, naturally. The article points out improvisation as a technique that has fallen by the wayside for many performers these days. And it asks an interesting question: Can (and should) classical musicians learn to improvise? We've talked a lot about improvising on the guitar and drums, but where do classi …
