Faith is fantastic! Just in a few lessons, I've improved my tone and worked on my weak vibrato and she even did research on helping me decide on a new flute. She is super professional, fun, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!!

About Charis

I have a B.S. in Music Education. I have worked with several disabled students patiently guiding them, finding creative ways to make music accessible to them. I believe it is not about me or the parent, but the student. I work with children of all ages believing that we can find a way that works

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

I'd never had any experience aside from singing in my car. Rob helped me learn many different exercises and helped me identify and unlearn bad habits I had picked up. He helped me learn to sing a lot of different songs that I enjoyed and is quick to map out the vocal notes on the piano to help me more easily understand and hit the notes I need to. Definitely recommend him as an instructor!
Jordan W.
Great exercises and feedback for singing. I felt much more comfortable singing with Rob than I expected.

Igor
Steve started tutoring our child on the upright bass when our kid was 9. Our child picked the bass when he joined the school orchestra. We started with in-person lessons, then switched to remote, when the lockdown changed everyone's lives. Steve is a reliable, patient teacher with a great musical ear and advanced skills. His tutoring made a big difference for our kid, who was quickly able to rank high in the school orchestra. Highly recommended.
Jude
Steve is a great teacher. He is knowledgeable and friendly, which provides a great learning environment. My only regret is not taking lessons sooner.
Jason
Steve is a total pro. He knows electric and acoustic bass backwards and forwards. Reading, theory, playing technique... he does it all with grace and charm... and he's a great guy!!! Can't say enough good things about him. He will take you wherever you want your bass journey to go.

Let's Play Music!
Many people think that music is a long and grueling process that takes years before being any fun, but this couldn't be any farther from the truth!

Especially in this day and age with so many resources available, it does not have to take decades to reach a fun and satisfactory level of musicianship.

What you are looking for is someone who can teach you what YOU want to know.

My approach to music teaching is fully CUSTOMIZABLE.
Instead of following a strict curriculum, every lesson is tailored specifically to your goals and interests.

Not interested in reading notes? No problem.
Only want to cover your favorite pop songs? You got it.
Trying to write your own stuff? Let's focus there!

Whatever makes music fun for you, you can count on me to help you find less work and more play.

For every student I keep a shared Log of our lessons together documenting what we worked on, resources we used, and goals or practice ideas for the week. My inbox is always open ...

About Avenira

What is it that sparks your unique musical expression? That is what I'm here to help you find and pursue. Maybe you want yourself, or your child, to know everything there is to know about music? Perhaps you'd like to learn to how to play your favorite songs? Or do you have your owns song

First lesson and I've already learned how to teach myself one of my favorite songs (which I can now play a few hours after my lesson) and some helpful music theory!
Joy
My 16-year-old ---who had not practiced for over a year---is absolutely loving her lessons with Ms. Avenira! With only 3 lessons, I am now seeing the spark for playing the violin return to my daughter's eyes. Ms. Avenira is meeting my daughter "where she is" and truly customizing lessons to move her forward. She provides detailed updates for each lesson, and I could not be happier with my investment. Excellent teacher.
Michelle P.
Avenira really connected with my 14 year old, while our daughter has always been enthusiastic to learn an instrument, putting in the practice and the work has been a challenge in the past. Avenira's format, which allows flexibility for how the student learns best, is really working. My daughter has been practicing every night (unprompted by us), and is really excited abut her next lesson with Avenira. She also loves that she can learn both guitar and piano with Avenira, since she is interested in both. Avenira was very motivating, complimenting our daughter for being focused and for doing a great job during the lesson. Definitely would rate Avenira A+++++++!!

Understanding Music Theory Through Colors

Struggling to understand a music theory concept? Sometimes, all it takes is a tweak to the way material is taught for a student to really grasp it. Here, Pittsburgh voice teacher Jennifer V. reveals her unique ROYGBIV method...   Has your child ever come home in tears because they just couldn’t master a skill they learned in school?

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …
