Marye Lobb Music School
In 2009 - after graduating the Berklee College of Music while simultaneously touring & releasing my first album, Finding Home, I found myself in NYC teaching music to children & adults privately in their homes. I always imagined myself starting to teach at age 80 - at the very youngest. However, after my experience of creating my first original album and the thorough music knowledge and skill set I developed at Berklee - I had so much to share! I began teaching what I know - piano, guitar, ukulele, voice, music theory, ear training and songwriting. My first student wanted to learn "Hey There Delilah" on electric guitar and I was up for the task! I wanted to get her to the joy and satisfaction of learning her favorite song as soon as possible. That was and always has been my approach. I never promoted or marketed myself to teach. My students kept referring me to their friends and I quickly had a full schedule. I adore working with my students as it is an incredibly humbling experience to watch them grow and to share the joy of music with them and their families.
The Music School functions on three semesters: "Spring" (January - June) "Summer" (June - August) and "Fall" (September - December). We generally hold two recitals a year - Spring in June and Fall in December. The recitals are a wonderful opportunity for students to share their work, to foster our music community and to build fellowship.
In January 2018, I expanded my team. Please learn about the incredible musicians below. We work together as a team consistently brainstorming how to best serve you and your children, ensuring that their musical journey fosters peace and joy and builds their self-confidence.
