Kyle K. Cleveland, OH

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

I love music! To me, it's a way of life. From listening to playing to writing and of course teaching. I grew up with music at school and home. My dad was a piano player and teacher so music has been a part of my life since day one and I want to share what I have learned. Everyone has a unique musical talent and I enjoy helping them find it. I believe that anyone can be an excellent musician. Playing an instrument should be a fun and creative adventure. Whether it's strumming at home, playing out in the clubs, or writing the next big hit, I will do my best to get you there!

My musical life began when I was in 5th grade and my dad bought me a saxophone, which I played for over 10 years. I quickly learned how fast I could improve if I simply kept playing. When I hit my teen years I fell in love with rock music and mowed enough lawns to buy my first guitar. I jammed and wrote songs with many other musicians and several bands. We played countless shows and released a few albums. Now I write music for TV, Film, Video Games, and other media outlets and I'm having a blast!

I started teaching 7 years ago and found that it is one of my favorite things to do. Helping others grow into great musicians is rewarding and fun. I've learned that from grade school to retirement, each student is a unique and special individual. My lessons reflect that fact so that we can reach all your goals together. *My personal goal is to get my students to understand and write music that will stay with them and encourage them to continue.

All lessons take place in my fully operational Digital Recording Studio and dedicated lesson room. Gaining real world playing experience through technology is a definite advantage over traditional lessons. This also allows us to capture ideas when songwriting and provides a unique practice experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone is different, and every lesson should be suited to fit the individual.

Depending on the type of lessons (guitar, bass, music production, theory) the style teaching will be very different. It's all about YOUR goals and needs. I will get you to where you want to go!

Each student is going to receive lessons based on their preferences of genre and style of music they desire to play. I expect my students to practice regularly and have a good time as their abilities and knowledge grow. By working together, we can focus on goals and problem solving to get you to the next level of play. Most importantly, we are going to have a blast while we learn to play music!

Imagine looking back years down the line, listening to something you wrote and hearing the improvements and your own personal music history. That's what writing and recording as you learn is all about.

*We'll start slow and build your knowledge base with each lesson.
*You can expect to understand what you are playing AND be able to Write Your Own Songs.
*You will be given everything you'll need to succeed.

I have several reference books, videos, and charts; plus I can show you smart phone apps and websites that will help you learn and practice! We will learn songs, write songs, and record songs. I provide jam tracks for all my students to play along too and offer to record their own music for the same purpose. We also keep a running journal that we use each week. This allows the student to look back, see improvement and be encouraged to continue!

Within 6 months you can expect to understand how songs are built (including chords and scales), be able to play several, and feel comfortable with trying your own skills as a songwriter or guitar player.

Let's start playing!

All my students learn theory and how to use it in song play and songwriting. I have them write short songs, record them, and finally use those songs to jam out their scales and use theory.

Subjects Taught

About Me

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from internationally recognized Baldwin-Wallace College. I have been playing and touring professionally for 9 years now with a band called Ward 9, and 4 years with a band called Dan Miraldi & The Albino Winos. I currently produce and run my own recording studio, and offer lessons as well. I am certified to teach all ages, any instrument, but focus mainly on bass, guitar, piano and vocals.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me, students can expect to move just a little faster than their perceived pace. I say this because students feel like they can accomplish A, but I know they are capable of more! They can expect to be held accountable to correct technique and gain a fundamental base of music theory as well. If they put in the practice time, they can expect to achieve much success with me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
studio set up in attic seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I am well-versed in Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze methodologies. I can teach classical or modern voice, and most styles of guitar.

About Me

Hello, my name is Sooji L. I'm from Seoul, South Korea.

At the Victoria Conservatory of Music, when teachers were away, I helped their students with technical difficulties, musicianship, and basic music theory. I helped them to get higher grades, and some of them got distinction, which is the grade above 90%. I also helped them to win prices in piano competitions.

I was frequently asked to perform at the "Saturday noon concerts" in which I played variety of works for the audience. I had several solo recitals. In addition to being a solo performer, I was a member of "The Collegium," which is a chamber group responsible for raising gifted musicians. Moreover, I was often asked to perform at the Greater Victoria Performing Art Festival's honor's concerts. I was selected to represent Victoria under my "intermediate piano" category.

I completed ARCT ¬úPiano Master Courses sponsored by Victoria Conservatory of Music with Walter Prossnitz, Margaret Fingerhut, Andre Laplante, Robert Holliston, Jamie Syer, David Jalbert, Bruce Vogt, Arthur Rowe, Catherine Ordronneau, Michelle Mares, and Lorraine Min.

Additional Skills
Although I'm an international student from Seoul, South Korea, my English is good enough to communicate with children when teaching. I've learn how to teach young musicians, and I know how to manage teaching difficulties. I also teach music harmony, ear training, sight singing, along with piano performing education. I love working with children who are in love with music or are passionate about embracing the music as a part of their lives. I love to teach children how music works and why music is so significant in our lives.

Basically, I first look at your level and needs. Depends on your background of musicianship, I usually try to help you with the fundamentals of piano so when you go to the advanced levels, you will not be scared of music! I want to help you with creating your own music. I'm not teaching you in my way. I always look for your demands and follow the way you want me to teach.

Hey~ I'm funny, creative, and passionate about your music and the process of your improvement. If I can be helpful to you, that's more than anything. I always want to help you if you have any questions about piano.. Piano is generally very challenging. However, I will help you to learn and be able to play beautiful music!!! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

I also teach Math, test prep, audition repertoires, social science, and other academic courses.
