About Lisa

My Background in Music:

My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work.

I studied and played guitar and auto-harp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school.

When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and ...

Lisa is an exceptional person, let alone teacher. I have had the privilege of having her as my Aunt, and writing and playing piano with her has always been a fond memory for me. She made it fun, and even when I struggled, she was able to lift my spirits with her positivity and her passion for music. As a teacher, she's able to explain things in different ways and cater to the individuality of the student, which I think is key to building a solid foundation when learning a new skill, and developing said skill over time. She has incredible drive, and I think any student who gets to work with her will excel, while having a good role model to aspire to!

Lisa is by far the most experienced and practical piano teacher I have studied under in recent times. Her teaching methods and relate-able knowledge of brain-muscle memory were keys in helping me progress.
Being a studio engineer who is learning to produce, the fundamentals which Lisa has taught me are critical. Thanks Lisa!

I am more confident with my voice now than I have ever been, thanks to Chip. He's very systematic in his methods, focusing on different aspects of one's voice, which he uses to combine into something beautiful that you never would have believed would come out of your mouth. His patience and ridiculous analogies have greatly helped me and I thoroughly recommend him to anyone who wants a better, more comfortable singing voice.

I honestly could not have asked for another teacher as kind, patient, and knowledgeable as Mr. Chip. As an instrumentalist with almost no singing background whatsoever, it was quite helpful to hear about and actually see how the body works together to allow for singing or speaking. It was also very helpful to learn more about the ways the body tries to help but instead causes more harm than good.

I believe Chip is a perfect teacher for any type of vocal student, from beginner to aspiring professional.

I started as a completely new student with no prior experience, and I was nervous for my first lesson. Chip had me at ease, and learning/practicing as soon as I got there. I've already improved some, and will be back for more lessons.

I highly recommend him to anyone just starting out like I was.

(This is Kari's daughter writing the review as I am the one receiving the lessons) Jennifer is honestly the best instructor I have ever had. She's so understanding about having to reschedule due to personal issues. She teaches in a way that's very focused for your individual learning style and she's also very honest which is always nice when you're learning a skill. I love Jennifer and I would definitely recommend using her for your child.

Bryce is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher!

He is also very dedicated and professional. He was able to quickly assess and direct me to new heights! I walked into my first lesson lacking confidence in my voice and feeling overwhelmed with nervousness. He not only made me feel comfortable, but excited to sing! By the time I left the studio, Bryce empowered me to sing confidently and really enjoy it. (In addition to the homework for the next lesson!)

I look forward to my next lesson with Bryce and would recommend him to any age! :)
