Anthony Caulkins ICIT BioTeaching Philosophy

Anthony has a great passion for working with students and helping them to succeed in achieving their own musical goals. As a teacher, Anthony’s primary motivation is to foster creativity, confidence, and independence in his students. Through a focus on musicianship, music theory, and technique, Anthony hopes to cultivate student’s abilities to learn and comprehend music quickly and efficiently. Over the course of several lessons, students will ideally develop methods to create music ways that reflect their personal voices. Anthony encourages his students to be confident improvisors as well as performers of written music and to make use of both acoustic and electric media.

Scheduling and Cancellation Policies

I like to develop a flexible relationship with students as I know that schedules might change from week to week, including my own. I am open to moving lesson times around to accommodate students, as my schedule permits. I do ask that students give me at least 24 hours notice about a lesson cancellation, otherwise I will bill as if the lesson took place (except in the case of emergencies).

Student Live Streamed Recitals

Anthony offers live performance opportunities for students in his 3-4 yearly live-streamed recitals, where students can play their best couple of pieces to a public audience on YouTube live.


Monthly Masterclasses

Included in the price of lessons is access to monthly masterclasses where students can perform and workshop their music along with other students in Anthony’s studio. These classes provide an opportunity for small performances in a supportive and relaxed environment, helping to get pieces ready for recitals.
