Brian Krajcik's Music Studio
Professional Music Educator | Piano, Voice
Welcome to my private studio page. When you're choosing a teacher you have many choices and factors to consider. Some consider education, while other look at experience and out of pocket cost. At the risk of being overbearing, all teachers are not created equal and it's crucial you find an educator who not only knows the instrument in question but can execute it and teach it. As an educator, I believe I have a healthy balance of education, experience, and cost.
Education: I graduated with a Master of Music from Westminster Choir College in Conducting/Voice, and received my Bachelor of Music from the University of Delaware in Education and Piano Performance. I am a current member of NAFME (National Association for Music Education) as well as ACDA (American Choral Directors Association).
Experience: I have more than 15 years of teaching experience both in the classroom and private studio. All lessons are individually tailored to the student and their learning style/needs. Lessons include learning to read musical notation, music theory, aural training/development, musicianship, and improvisation. Depending on the students goals literature can range from classical i.e. Mozart, Bach, Beethoven all the way to Pop, Jazz, Broadway, Disney, etc... Students are encouraged to participate in an annual Studio Recital, and there are additional opportunities for Concerto Competitions depending on the student's level and interests.
Cost: Lessons are $70 an hour, and $40 for a half an hour. Payment is due at the beginning of every lesson. Lessons are based out of Ocean County, Monmouth County.
