Firefly Music School Children music lessons in Akron, OH
We hold lessons once a week here at the school. We offer 1/2 hour, 45 minute, or full hour lessons. Lessons are purchased and booked in one month blocks. We find a day and time that works for you and commit to it for the month. If that time and day continue to be convenient, you can use it month after month. Should you need to change days or times, we schedule this to begin at the next new month.
Our teachers provide a friendly and relaxed environment for beginners and students wanting to build on their existing skills. We hold weekly, one-on-one and small group lessons, where kids, teens, and adults learn to play, read music, and sometimes even write some of their own. Lessons are booked on a monthly basis, so students can begin, stop, and resume the program easily.
Electric And Acoustic Guitar
I’ve been teaching guitar and bass at Firefly for several years. I’m currently finishing up a Classical Guitar Performance degree at Akron University. Being a teacher at Firefly has made me realize that I am a drummer trapped in a guitar player’s body who played piano in a previous life and plays bass in an 80′s hair metal cover band in a parallel dimension
My specialty is piano and woodwind instruments, but I also am starting to learn brass instruments as well. I love teaching music so much that I have decided to make a career out of it.
Piano And Band Instruments
I began taking piano lessons at six and continued through high school where I was active in the school’s instrumental ensembles. While at Akron U, I played keyboards for a band that had recently released an album (now in the Local Artists section of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) and was opening for some well known musical acts of that time.
I teach drums/percussion at Firefly (and yes, I am a girl!). I’ve been playing drums for over 7 years. I was thrown onto my church worship band after my first year when one of our drummers stepped down and I’ve been playing there ever since.
Violin And Fiddle
I teach violin and fiddle at Firefly and love spreading the joy of music! I enjoy Scottish Fiddle, American Contra Dance, and Gypsy. I play locally with a celtic rock band called “The Mickeys” and a Scottish dance band called “Next in Line.”
Piano, Guitar, And Bagpipes
Although I’ve only been at Firefly since September of 2010, I have enjoyed teaching and playing music for most of my life. When I was 8, I picked up the challenge of learning the bagpipes, and began playing them competitively. I have had the opportunity to play for churches, families, and special need camps throughout my musical career.
