About Me

I'm Kayla Lynn and I want to help you reach your goals! I love music and sharing my passion with others. I will be graduating from the University of Missouri- St. Louis May of 2015; after 14 years of experience, if you're ready to learn, then I'm ready to help!

My musical experiences: I am a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and song-writer. I grew up in church choir and have been in symphonic band as well as even a blues/rock band! I have several years of experience in the classical, jazz, Latin, funk, rock, blues, country, pop, Gospel and R&B genres.

Piano: I began playing classical piano at the age of nine and continued to play (voice students are often times required to play piano). I now play almost everyday. I am well-versed in classical, jazz and blues piano.

Voice: I have studied with private voice instruction since the age of nine (classical and jazz mostly). I participated in my middle and high school choirs (concert and chamber choirs) along with a church chamber choir named 'Voce Dei'. I am well-versed in the genres of classical, jazz, blues, rock, country, Gospel, pop, and R&B.

Flute: I began playing classical flute at the age of nine and continue to play to this day. I enjoy playing with friends and also performing with a jazz group around the city. I am well-versed in classical, jazz and Latin flute styles.

*** Lesson Details ***
Learning is personal and I want the experiences my students have to be informative, engaging and interesting to them.

General things I focus on in every lesson:
1. Getting to know my student's on a personal level (their particular interests and background)
2. Setting tangible goals based on current abilities and experiences for students (music/voice students will focus on music theory, rhythm/pitch proficiency, proper technique, and performance).
3. My personal experience; including my background and how this experience applies to a particular circumstance in a lesson.
4. Developing the student's skill set to reach these goals; by staying persistent, enthusiastic and having a genuine interest in my student's goals.

I have experience working with special needs (such as Asperger's and cerebral palsy) and I also speak basic Spanish.

~I can provide the tools you will need to gain more confidence and accuracy by helping you build a skill set. I want all of my students to be able to properly apply the skills and exercises to 'real life'.

About Me

Hi! My name is Angela, and I teach private piano, voice, and theory lessons. I love teaching, and have taught many ages (4 to 92) and ability levels (novice to advanced). I am a dependable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher. I offer lessons for 30, 45, or 60-minute weekly sessions in my music studio. I do not offer bi-weekly lessons or lessons in the student's home.

I started playing piano at age seven when my mother enrolled me in lessons. I have been playing ever since, and I absolutely love it. I began teaching private piano lessons in 2004, and have taught many thousands of lessons since that time. I have experience accompanying choirs, instrumentalists, and vocalists, as well as playing as a soloist in various piano competitions and recitals. I recently began taking lessons in jazz piano, a genre I never learned much about. I believe it is never too late to learn something new, and I am excited to start this new chapter of my musical life and to use this new knowledge to enhance my own teaching.

My love of singing began in my freshman year of high school, when I joined the choir. It was a life-changing experience, and inspired me to make music my career. I immediately began taking private voice lessons, and became a voice teacher myself by 2005. While in college, I was presented with many opportunities to learn and grow, both as a musician and as a teacher. I sang in several different collegiate choirs, and was nominated to be in the all-collegiate choir in 2007. I also passed yearly auditions to sing in Voices Only, Lindenwood's most advanced vocal group. During my junior and senior years at Lindenwood, I worked as the assistant director of Voices Only. This was a wonderful opportunity, and I learned so much while leading warm-ups every day, running sectionals on a weekly basis, directing the group during rehearsals and even during performances when the director was away. I currently sing in the Saint Louis Harmony Chorus, one of the top 25 women's barbershop choruses in the world. I am on the music faculty of the chorus, and am also the baritone section leader. I also sing in an award-winning barbershop quartet called Executive Sweets.

*** Lesson Details ***
Making music is a skill which can bring lifelong joy to the musician as well as everyone around them. While I can easily ensure that my students enjoy music-making while they are taking lessons, my ultimate goal is that students continue to want to make music throughout their entire life, even after they stop taking lessons. I firmly believe that my job as a teacher is to train my students to be independent and self-sufficient musicians, musicians who do not need to take piano lessons for the rest of their life. My ultimate goal with each student is that one day I can tell them that they don't need me anymore. Many teachers teach by rote, playing a passage to a student and then having the student play it back. Though this method is helpful in some situations, students who are taught in this manner often find that they are only able to play the songs taught to them in lessons, and that to learn a new song they must have a teacher by their side showing them how the song goes. In my lessons, however, students are taught to learn their own music though sight-reading, ear-training, music theory, and listening to and critiquing their own playing. Over time, this allows the student more and more freedom to make music without a teacher.

In my piano lessons I use the Faber's fabulous Piano Adventures series. In my opinion, they are the best books on the market, emphasizing reading by intervals as opposed to memorizing note names. This method minimizes student frustration while also decreasing the amount of time it takes a student to read a new song. Piano Adventures also focuses on developing sight reading and ear training skills, something most developing musicians don't study until college-level music courses. All of my piano students have the opportunity to play "€œfun songs,"€ that is, songs which may not be in their regular lesson books, but which the student truly has the desire to learn. These extra songs are always optional for the student, and the choice of song is always up to the student. Fun songs can be of any genre: Classical (Für Elise, Clair de Lune, Moonlight Sonata), Jazz (Linus and Lucy, The Pink Panther, The Entertainer), Popular (Clocks, Don€™t Stop Believin€™, Great Balls of Fire), or any song that suits the student€™s interest (songs from video games, favorite TV shows or movies, folk tunes, etc). The fun song will typically be more challenging than the rest of the student€™s pieces, and helps to retain student interest and, when learned, is something the student can really be proud of accomplishing.

Vocal students are not required to purchase a curriculum for voice lessons, as lessons are based around the fundamentals of singing (breath support, head/chest voice, tone, and diction) and focused on each student€™s desired repertoire. Students will be working on two songs at any given time. The first song is entirely of the student€™s choosing, while the other will be chosen by the student from the vast stores of generally accepted vocal repertoire. This second song can be an aria, art song, or Broadway piece, and the student may choose from a variety of languages (English, Italian, German, French, Spanish, and Latin) in which to sing. Each lesson also includes warm-ups tailored to each student to develop technique and expand range, and a short theory or ear training session. Depending on student interest, these lessons may also include work on improvisation, composing, and musical dictation.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home is a split-level, with my private living area above and my music studio below. There is a waiting area just outside the music studio, as well as a half-bath specifically designated for students and parents. The studio itself contains a piano and organ, my personal music library, and additional seating for parents. There is a full-length mirror for vocal students to watch their performance skills grow, and a gumball machine for when younger students have an exceptionally good lesson.
