Laura C.

My name is Laura and I’m from Romania. I come from a family of musicians. My father is a conductor, and my mother was a concert pianist. I'm a professional singer & violinist with more than 12 years of teaching experience! I was the founder, manager, lead vocalist and violinist for Duo Strings Cafe, an established Café Concert band in Bucharest. I performed in various Mariachi and pop / rock bands in Romania. I'm also an actress and played various opera and theater roles like the soprano Caterina Cavalieri in the "Amadeus " play. I offer singing & violin classes to students of all ages. I'm a vocal coach versed in various styles (pop, rock, Latino, jazz, etc.) I have been playing the violin since I was 5 years old. I've graduated with a Bachelor of Art in classical canto. It was always my dream to manage and teach in a music school, this is why I opened my own in Bucharest. It had 2 branches and a separate recording studio location. I love my job because of the satisfaction I get from witnessing my students' passion grow as they improve. During my singing classes the students learn how to breathe correctly. I will also teach them about proper posture, rhythm, articulation and train their ears. We will be able to differentiate and properly switch between voice registers, from chest voice, to head, mix, falsetto. I will also show them different voice "effects" like vocal fry, adding distortion, using twang, belting... During violin classes, i will start with some exercises focusing on technique, scales, rhythm and bow control. We'll brush up on our previous lessons, then we'll go through the homework till we finally get to the best part of our lesson: playing a song. The violin aids in keeping a straight posture and improves our hands dexterity. I look forward to seeing you in class!

Gary B.

Gary began his life’s journey in music at twelve years old when he was installed as the accompanist for his church’s senior choir and even though he did not pursue music as a career, choosing work in public service in education and human resources, music has been a constant presence as an avocation, calling, passion used to enable inner peace, and now, livelihood. Gary brings years of experience playing in cover bands, directing small ensembles for stage productions, supporting vocalist, as well as providing music in restaurants, lounges, and clubs throughout central Pennsylvania. Throughout his life, he has served as lead keyboardist in various worship ensembles for congregations utilizing selections from the song books of both contemporary Christian and black gospel genres. A cherished designation for Gary in recent years was as an Artist in Residence for the Milton Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania providing music for patients, staff, and various events at the hospital. Before leaving Pennsylvania, he had been serving as worship pastor for a medium sized congregation coordinating nearly fifty instrumentalists and singers charged with providing worship for three services each weekend. Gary now combines his love for the piano, his gift for working with people of all ages, and his passion for all types of music, with a deep commitment to equip a new generation of players for the future demands for the music marketplace. Gary is looking to equip keyboardists for bands not yet formed, prepare musicians for congregations not yet planted, or prepare someone for the tasteful accompaniment for an engagement in the future by a vocalist.
