About Me

I have been a teacher in private practice for 20 years. I have a wide range of experience with singers of all styles and age groups with a variety of goals and skills. I sang with a professional jazz octet for a number of years while maintaining my practice, have taught various master classes, musically directed various musicals, have sung background vocals and played piano on various recordings. I studied vocal and piano performance at Murray State University and studied privately through my adult singing and teaching career.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a big believer of direct application of core technique to repertoire/style. Generally, lessons are fun, comfortable and laughter is encouraged. I like singers to be working on a wide variety of music from the beginning. It's a great way to understand and explore your voice and how great technique is fundamental to successful development. I find this approach beneficial if you're a beginning student or if you sing professionally. Not to mention, singing songs is fun!!!! I encourage all students to give input on repertoire. Songs are chosen with goals in mind, including working specific parts of the range, preparing for an audition or performance, stamina, strength, and overall vocal development. In 3-6 months you will have a very good understanding of how your voice works and how to apply good technique to a variety of styles of music. My goals for piano students of all ages include a broad understanding of music theory and the ability to sit down and play music! I believe good sight reading skills are paramount for piano enjoyment and functional playing skills. We will sight read at each lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with piano, mic, recoding equipment, and seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I'm comfortable with all styles of singing and have coached extensively in most styles, from classical to hip hop to rock. I work with singers with various goals. Some are professional singers, some study for a future career, and some study for personal enrichment. I am very good at teaching solid healthy technique/voice use, with direct application to repertoire, maintaining the singer's authenticity, style, and vocal health.

Timothy P. Saint Louis, MO

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice

About Me

I've been around music all my life. My skills have grown through the education of school, which I was in band and choir, and also through life experience. I perform regularly as a guitar player/singer and eagerly seek students to learn what I've learned There are a lot of different aspects to playing guitar, whether you want to just sing and play rhythm, come up with cool riffs, or shred a mouth dropping solo in front of your friends, I can show you these things. I've taught a lot to myself through online resources and simply watching other guitar players on YouTube or in real life. So I want to show the student how to learn for himself also.

I've received A+ when I was in high school, so I started tutoring then in both basketball and some elementary education. I delved heavily into computers and music education in college. Even though my background on computers was programming and web design, I eventually used those skills to learn how to do music recording. So over the past 8 years my main focuses have been teaching, playing, and recording music. I hope you would like to learn some of these things.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you sign up with me, I will get a hold of the student before the first lesson. That way, I can get a quick assessment on the students experience and their goals so I can come with a prepared lesson based on the students needs. With any student I'll go over the basic knowledge of the instrument: tuning, explaining different parts of the guitar, correct posture, etc. From there, depending on the students goals, we can jump into learning any favorite song, learn basic chords and how to put them into progressions which form songs, or start understanding how to improvise and solo in different genres of music. I will also provide handouts, teach my student to read tablature, and how to research for information via online or books. I like to have fun and encourage any student to enjoy themselves even during the tough parts of learning. With perseverance you'll not only gain the ability to play something meaningful, but learn lifelong principals as well. I look forward to meeting you.

I will bring my own acoustic. I can provide a guitar for the student at first, but it's recommended for any student to have his own instrument. I'll bring my handouts and references for the lesson that day and next week. I will bring a music stand as well for easy reading and playing.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in many different styles either on the acoustic guitar or the electric. I've been in full bands, small bands, and solo acts. I can play anything from Blues, bluegrass, rock, folk, to funk or heavy metal. I can teach how to solo in any of these genres, or just to play rhythm and sing.

I have two acoustics, and one electric. I can provide a guitar if the student needs.

Our lessons are focused on the enjoyment of making music together. We set mini goals and objectives for the lessons. We work on music that you enjoy and that will help you improve as a musician. Whether you are just beginning, have studied before, or an experienced musician you will enjoy our work together.

Students have the opportunity to perform in two concerts per year ( fall and spring) and in a summer coffee house.

I can teach in your home or in my studio in Maryville, Illinois or East Alton, Illinois.

If I am traveling to your home we will need to have a quiet place to work with either a digital or acoustic keyboard.
