John C

Hey there! My name is John. I was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. Growing up, I wanted to be like my father, who could seamlessly play "Rush" songs. I started playing the drums at the age of 9, and my love for music only grew stronger from there. I would sit in my room listening to the radio and recording my favorite songs to practice on a cassette tape. My musical interests include everything from funk and soul to hard rock and metal.

I moved to Pennsylvania in 2004. I started to learn bass and guitar and would switch off depending on what my bands needed me to do. As music software and digital audio workstations progressed, I liked producing hip hop beats and recording guitar and bass over them and now go under the moniker "Johnny No One" on all major streaming platforms. I've played all around the Lehigh Valley and New York to support artists and playing with my cover band "Every Other Sunday."

I have many years of experience working with children and those with special needs and consider it one of my specialties. I value patience, kindness, and steady growth through the development of the fundamentals, all while trying to make sure it's fun.  I firmly believe that music is the best form of communication and meant to transcend language itself and bring people together. I'll do everything I can to teach others how to communicate in this way.

Sarah S

Hello, my name is Miss Sarah and I am a multi-instrumentalist. I teach and coach piano, violin, voice, ukulele, theory, and songwriting with a strong background in performing. I have provided individual music instruction to students of all ages in the Lehigh Valley since 2005 and have dedicated myself to the musical arts for 30+ years. 

I have found that music is an essential and ever-evolving journey which is why I believe it is important to not take a “one lesson fits all” approach. I cater each lesson to the goals and needs of the individual, to offer a personalized learning experience. The lessons I offer are based in technique and artistry, sight-reading, theory, ear training, and song work; while also exploring the individual's area of study whether that is songwriting, performance, preparing for auditions, therapeutic music support, working on orchestra pieces or anything of the like. 

Music has been my entire life for as long as I can remember. Having grown up in a family of accomplished musicians, I began studying at the age of 5 and performing shortly after that. I have toured and performed extensively all over the US and throughout the UK, Europe, and the Caribbean and I believe that these experiences have given me a deep understanding of not just the application of musical arts, but also the human experience through music and I look forward to sharing that with you.

Deb L

My name is Deb and I have been teaching for 40+ years now. I teach piano, bass, guitar, ukulele, flute and voice. 

I have performed in many different venues in the tri-state area with many different musicians in genres that include jazz, rock, blues, classical. And though my studies have been classical and jazz based, I enjoy teaching and playing all genres.

Throughout my teaching career, I have also worked with students from ages 3 to 85 years old. Rather than using one particular method, I find that designing a lesson program around the student is the best road to success. Theory, harmony and composition are all studies I present to my students, emphasizing outlets for them to be creative. I encourage my students to take part in recitals and collaborative performances with other students whenever possible as it is a wonderful catalyst to keep improving as a new or young musician. 

Over the years I have developed many wonderful relationships with my students. I enjoy watching the progress each individual makes in both a private and group setting and try to find the best way to educate and share the knowledge and experience I have gained throughout the years with each student.

Fran K

Although he studied and played music since the age of ten, it wasn’t until retiring from his career as a medical professional that Fran started living his best life as a full time music teacher and performer. Performing in bands of various genres, cutting tracks in recording studios, playing in pit orchestras for theater musicals, playing for worship services, and helping songwriters arrange their compositions has given Fran a firm grasp on the skills and education needed to take advantage of the broad range of musical experiences available to those who love music. 

Fran’s educational philosophy is to help develop the physical skills needed to play the instrument, to teach the mental knowledge necessary to understand music and music theory and then apply those to the particular student’s goals. Every student’s goal will differ according to age and level of expertise, and the goal itself will evolve as the student progresses. But inherent in every goal should be the joy of playing and sharing music. That’s why Fran and his students often like to “go rogue” and deviate from the standard lesson books and learn to play music that the STUDENT is interested in playing, as well as genres of music that Fran would like the student to experience: anything from classical to movie and video game soundtracks, pop/rock and jazz. 

Having raised four children into adulthood Fran is comfortable with any age student. He finds as much joy in playing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” as music from “In the Heights”! Playing and learning music should be FUN! Fran currently teaches piano, guitar and electric bass guitar (his favorite!).

Grant C

Grant began his musical journey at an early age, completing three years of classical guitar study by age 10. He then discovered electric guitar and 70’s rock music and another musical chapter opened up to him as he approached his teenage years. Since then he has founded or performed in numerous bands, while simultaneously pursuing and advancing his nylon string classical guitar skills. He can currently be seen performing with one of the Lehigh Valley’s top bands, Band of Brothers, at numerous locations throughout the Valley, as well as performing for wedding ceremonies and reception cocktail hours on his nylon string guitar.

Grant’s passion for helping other people and his easy-going personality make him popular with young beginning students, older, or more advanced students, or any combination in between. He feels that building a rapport with each student is an important part of their advancement, as music is a personal journey and the student must feel comfortable in the learning environment. Grant strongly feels that patience and understanding is key to engendering a student’s love of music and enhancing their learning abilities and believes that pressure should not be a part of the lesson experience. After all, it’s the student’s time to explore a new avenue of life, one that will hopefully lead to many years of profound enjoyment.

His ability to break down the language of music into understandable concepts, using bite-sized pieces that make sense, allows students to build their knowledge of this new, exciting endeavor in an enjoyable way. And because he is also actively performing live music, he is able to help students with performance aspects of their playing as well, emphasizing what is needed for successful stage performances.

Although his degree is in Electrical Engineering (B.S. from Penn State), he has always simultaneously pursued his passion for music, taking several music courses in college as well. Grant’s life long quest for knowledge has driven him to constantly seek out new musical challenges and he enthusiastically accepts the work it requires to hone his skills for playing it.

Grant has also played trumpet from an early age, starting lessons in the 4th grade and continuing through High School, playing in both the Marching and Concert bands, and being featured as a soloist during Marching band shows. He brings that knowledge and experience to help brass playing students achieve their goals.

He has passed on his love of music to his three sons as well, teaching and helping them with their guitar, drums, and trumpet lessons.
