About Me

Praised for his musicality and effortless ability to connect with his audiences, Edward has performed in Italy, Bulgaria, Austria, and the U.S.
After more than 15 years of performing/teaching experience, Edward most recently released his first album, "Canzone," which features some of his favorite Italian love songs. In 2007, he was selected to attend the exclusive Casalmaggiore International Music Festival in Italy. In 2005, he created the role of Chang Chung in the world premier of "Genghis Khan" in Austin, Texas. His performance garnered rave reviews, and is available on CD through Salvage Vanguard Theater archives. In 2004, Edward was also a Finalist in the El Paso Opera Competition, and he also received first place in the NATS Adult Division.

After graduating with a B.A. in Music/Journalism in 2002, Edward joined the International Opera Studio of Dallas, where he studied under Sheila Jones Harms. Soon after he trained at the Academy of Voice and Stage in Miami, FL.

He currently resides in Allen, TX where he established the Edward K. Studio of Voice in 2013 and teaches students of all ages a progressive "Bel Canto" method of singing, which frees the natural voice and encompasses all genres of music.

About Me

Hello! I am a skilled teacher with a passion for helping others learn and excel! I hold my bachelor's degrees in music education and vocal performance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I completed my master's degree in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. I have been teaching over 15 years. I tailor instruction to your need. I can help you become a stronger musician, be ready for performances and auditions, prepare for special occasions, completions, recitals, concerts and more!

I am also very interested in nutrition and cooking. I have thus studied these areas and love to share this knowledge with others.

Contact me with any questions or for information. Thank you!

Whitney H. Dallas, TX

Subjects Taught

English, Piano

About Me

I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years (began lessons at age 5). While I do posses the training that allows me to instruct students who are interested in performance level musicianship, I by no means expect my students to desire this for themselves.

My students have different interests and each are at a different skill level. Each student presents unique challenges, goals and progress so no matter what your interest/skill level is, we will make sure you are happy and successful.

*** What you can expect from me ***
After a brief discussion about your goals, background and schedule, we will formulate a plan that will help you achieve your goals. Whether that's a goal to learn all your scales by the end of the month, learn where middle C is, learn to read with greater speed, or learn Bach by the end of the year; we can make it happen. I do not expect you to learn the way I was taught (although if you want a strict regimen, I can provide that). I am a big believer in motivating you in the way that helps YOU succeed. I promise I am patient, pleasant and enjoy my job; you have nothing to be afraid of.

*** What I expect from you ***
Please do not contact me if you don't have a piano to practice on at home. I expect my students to practice because that is THE MOST important aspect of learning any skill; piano is no different. Please respect my time; if you need to cancel, do so in the appropriate time frame. Most importantly, I want you to communicate honestly with me about your goals and if you want me to change how I explain things, tell me. I am here to help you learn and it's very easy for a teacher to forget that they aren't breaking down the subject enough for their students.

*** A note to parents ***
If I am instructing your child, please be prepared to communicate regularly with me about his/her progress and specific goals. I want my students to practice at home on a continuous basis and this may mean you, as the parent, must reinforce this expectation at home with your child on a daily/regular basis. Many parents find this responsibility inconvenient so please consider this before contacting me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I own a 1942 Kimball Consolette piano (see pic of studio). She's old but she has soul. I have a variety of sheet music that I can provide (the student must sign the music "in and out" when using it so I can keep track of who has what and can only mark it in pencil).

*** Travel Equipment ***
Please bring your workbooks/sheet music to every lesson. Bring a pencil and a metronome if you have one (there are many iPhone metronome apps).

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years. This means that I was trained to perform and compete only, playing songs that were required by competition guidelines. I participated in everything: Jazz, Sonatina, State, Solo, Ensemble, Regional, Hymn, you name it! This also means my "specialty" is classical music (Mozart, Bach, etc.)

About Me

I love to learn, and love to find creative and fun ways to help others learn! I am patient, caring, reliable, and willing to go the extra mile to help my students achieve their goals. My tutoring experience includes Geometry, Pre-Algebra, Elementary Math, English, Spelling, Reading, and Reading Comprehension. I have experience working with children with Attention Deficit Disorder and behavioral disorders, and seek to help all my students grow both academically and personally.
With Master's degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and the University of Texas at Arlington (Social Work) specializing in counseling, I am also in a unique position to teach Bible studies and provide Life Coaching. My heart is to help others find the path that God has designed uniquely for them, and experience a full and satisfying life (John 10:10). I look forward to meeting and working with all my clients, each one a person of great worth!
