I have a wide range of experience with performing many genres of music and always seek to bring out the best and most confident performance in all of my students. During my Masters at the IU Jacobs School of Music, I specialized in the performance of Baroque vocal repertoire and learned technical exercises that can help increase flexibility of technique in singing any genre of music. My diverse performance experiences across classical, opera, baroque, and musical theater enable me to encourage all students to reach their full potential with their singing voice and confidence that radiates into all areas of their lives.

I am an active vocalist in the Pittsburgh area and recent graduate of the Early Music Voice Master’s program at IU Jacobs School of Music, where I studied baroque and renaissance vocal repertoire with Steven Rickards and Dana Marsh. My teaching philosophy centers around developing both a love

What an amazing instructor Elizabeth is. I’m a beginner crochet hobbiest who has learned mostly from watching YouTube videos; Elizabeth was able to provide techniques for improving my yarn tension, she explained a variety of aspects about crochet that I unclear on. Her teaching style is like being with a good friend and learning at the same time. I highly recommend taking her sessions.

She showed what she was doing and talked to me throughout the lesson. She also talked about things other than just crochet.

Elizabeth was such a great help! I started a shawl a couple of years ago and after making a mistake that I didn't know how to fix, I got off track and set it down. Elizabeth got me back on track in one lesson! I had little hope for being able to figure it out, and sure enough we did. Thank you!!

Playing the piano is so much fun. My piano students learn how to read music, play with proper technique, and express themselves musically. More importantly, they learn to believe in themselves and their own strengths. We'll begin our learning journey together by discussing your specific goals. Each and every student's lessons are customized to his preferences. In my home studio, we'll use a pro-level Yamaha keyboard with weighted keys.

More important than my conservatory education and my experience as an educator and a performer is my passion for teaching music and acting and my undying belief that anyone can learn to be a musician and an actor. I'm currently available to teach lessons in my own St. Augustine home studio and

About Justin

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and th

Justin is teaching me music just not how to play the ukulele. Really appreciate his individual approach which incorporates my learning style. When needed, Justin picks up when I need a change of strategy. I am a very very beginner and have learned so much so far.

I "shopped around" for a great teacher on this site.

For many new lesson takers, not only do you have no clue about your instrument, you aren't even sure what makes a great teacher!

So here are some things to look out for in a first lesson:

Your teacher should be personable and interested in your musical experience and taste. Ask them what they like! You might hear something you want to learn.

If you mention some level of experience, they will ask you to play something you either know or have been working on. This is important!

Then, preferably, they will ask why you have chosen your instrument and what you want to be able to do with it (i.e. do you want to play in a band, or just play your favorite songs for your family gatherings).

All of this allows you to relax and not worry too much about performing too much during your first lesson.

More importantly, it gives the instructor a clear path on how to work with YOU. The more they know about your current level, the better your experience and learning progress will be.

For absolute beginners, I would hope that they have a simple melody for you to learn right then and there by watching and playing with them.

Well, Justin knocked it out of the park! And then some.

He showed that he is willing to customize teaching to your style, as well.

I learn by ear, so he knew how to use that as an advantage for learning the fretboard and notes. Instead of giving me a paper with chords on it, he challenged me to use my knowledge and play around more thoughtfully to figure out what the names are for notes and chords I'm already playing.

Please, don't hesitate to work with Justin. The price is beyond fair! Especially since other teachers in the same price ranges are between 2-4 stars.

Thanks, Justin!

As a mom, it’s the best thing when you know that your child will do well in a class because Jennifer is there to help her! You will be so pleased if you work with Jennifer and you definitely reach you goal of doing very well in the class! Thanks a million Jennifer for helping my daughter achieve her goal!!!!"

"I feel compelled to share a great “find” I made last year. School had only been in session for two weeks before my kids came home lamenting that their AP Physics teacher left them totally confused and stressed out. Switching to a less demanding schedule wasn’t an option so I decided to look for some help. Lord knows, it wasn’t going to come from me or my husband! I found Daniel, a 2012 UCLA engineering grad who has been tutoring for many years. After the boys’ first meeting with him, the level of stress in our household plummeted and the boys did well on their first physics test. They ended up with A's in the class and doing well on the AP exam. We’ve decided to have him come regularly, just to make sure the boys understand the material and keep them confident. Daniel is able to help them with anything they don’t get in their calculus class as well.
So as you stare the next school year in the face, if your child has any difficulty with their studies, especially in math or physics, consider talking to Daniel. He’s a lovely young man and the boys really responded to him well."
