Eliza Waldman is a jazz and classically trained musician with a BA in Music from Vassar College, where she was awarded the Elisabeth Locke Scholarship in music. She is a touring songwriter and musician and teaches both private students and rock ensembles. She has coached at camps which include Hochstein School of Music and Dance Guitar Camp, NYC Rock Camp, and Willie Mae Rock Camp. She has been teaching private students for a decade, and loves working with young children, older kids working on honing their skills, and adults who may be interested in picking up an instrument for the first time or brushing up on some rusty skills. She also does NYSSMA prep for interested students in piano and guitar. She is currently a faculty member at the Birch Wathen Lenox School in New York City, where she teaches after-school lessons and a rock band program, as well as online lessons at your convenience! Instruments include guitar, electric bass, ukulele, piano/keyboard, songwriting/vocal coaching, and drum kit.
My approach is to find a teaching method that works for you. For one student, that might mean working on formal reading skills and using a method book, for another student, it might mean working on scales and learning rock songs, for another it might be an intensive songwriting project. I want to coach you to achieve your goals! For younger students, I also use a variety of games and other enrichment activities.
The ones I prefer are Hal Leonard Method Book series for guitar, bass, drums, ukulele and Faber for piano, but just let me know if there's another series you've been working out of.
