Music Lessons

VIOLIN, PIANO, COMPOSITION & THEORY LESSONS IN SOMERVILLE!

Hello! We're Dan Sedgwick and Marji Gere of the Gere Sedgwick Duo. We’ve both taught music since the turn of the century. Our goal is to help all kinds of people fall in love with music: as players, creators & listeners. We believe that everyone has musical potential, which can be unleashed in a nurturing, fun educational setting.

We are passionate about helping all kinds of people develop a sensitive musical ear, gain fluency in reading musical notation, and express themselves fully in practice, composition, and performance.

LESSONS AVAILABLE

All levels of violin! Marji uses a Hungarian method that introduces violin techniques and music reading via classical and folk melodies from around the world. Students of all ages and musical experiences welcome.

All levels of piano! Dan loves to work with students of all ages, and can cater to musical interests ranging from classical to jazz to pop to experimental.

Composition and music theory! Dan will help you expand your musical toolbox and creative voice, at the piano or any other instrument.

Ensemble Coaching! We will match-make you with like-minded musicians, if you are interested in chamber music or other creative musical collaborations. We are also happy to coach your pre-existing ensemble.

Any combination of the above! Please ask about our tuition discounts for a combination package of our lesson offerings.
