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.

About Me

Whatever music you want to sing—any style, any time period—I promise I will teach you to sing it in your very best voice.

My name is David and I look forward to the opportunity to teach you how to sing your best, whatever style it is you want to learn. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music at Oregon State University, where I learned how to sing classical music well. In addition to that, I have years of experience in rock-and-roll bands, and have learned how to apply the lessons I learned from my classical voice teachers to my career as a (very) minor rock star. That's exactly what I want to help you with: whatever you want to sing, from any period in music history, I know how to teach you to sing with your best voice. Singing is one of the things that makes us all human and I relish the opportunity to help students of all ages and skill levels sing a little bit better each week.

I began singing in high school choir, and quickly added piano and guitar to my repertoire of skills. By the time I began college, it was clear that a life of teaching music was in store for me. While studying music education and vocal performance at Oregon State University, I sang in the OSU Chamber Choir, which toured Arizona in 2005, eastern Europe in 2006, and San Francisco in 2007. After graduation, I worked for two years as a church music director and software tester before making the next move, to St. Louis. I earned a Master of Divinity degree at Covenant Theological Seminary in May 2014, and I plan to be a pastor, musician, and music teacher when all is said and done. I sing and play keyboards at Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Louis. In my free time, I enjoy the finest coffees, reading fiction, and watching soccer.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you're taking lessons with me, expect to work hard but to enjoy yourself. These lessons aren't meant to be fun in the way seeing a movie or playing video games are fun. They're fun because it's rewarding to work hard at discovering and doing something you love. I work hard to be encouraging and give all of the honest compliments that I possibly can.

But when there are areas you need to improve, I will certainly mention it and help you understand how to make those improvements. After a few months of lessons, you can expect dramatic improvements in your breath control, the energy of your tone, and achieving a beautiful, balanced resonance with your voice.

A typical lesson begins with warm ups. This consists of seven or eight minutes of easy vocal exercises that are meant to warm up the muscles in your voice and get your mind prepared to sing and learn. It will also give me a chance to hear how you're doing when you come in for your lesson.

Next, we spend a few minutes reviewing exercises and ideas from the previous week's voice lesson. This gives us a chance to check in on your progress and make sure that you're using your practice time well.

After the review, we'll work on some musical selections. I'll assign some of your music to you, and you'll choose some of your own music to sing. The best use of our time is to sing and work on polishing the songs you want to perform. As we work on a piece of music, I'll take note of places you're using good technique and areas that you need to improve in.

Finally, we'll work on vocal exercises to help you improve in those areas. These include passages of music that help you understand what it feels like when you're singing well. These exercises induce some positive aspects of singing in your voice, which helps you understand how to sing better when you're singing other passages of music. After warm-ups, we spend about half the remaining lesson time on exercises.

About Me

My love of singing began with my mother. She is an amazing singer but didn't really receive training, so she encouraged me to pursue singing. I was in choirs since 3rd grade and started voice lessons in 8th grade. My senior year in high school I was part of a choir that was invited to sing on NPR's From The Top! It was a thrilling experience.
I received a bachelor of music degree in vocal performance from Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia. I participated in choirs, musicals, and other performance venues, including two recitals.
Since graduation I have moved to St. Louis to pursue singing and teaching. I am excited to share my love of singing with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I want to facilitate your musical growth, working with you to reach your goal. Regardless of genre, good singing starts with a strong base built on posture, breathing, support, and vocal production. These skills are pivotal for singers at any age and vital for those who want to advance their skill level.
As lessons progress, students will learn good musicianship skills, including sight reading and music theory. As they master the basics, they will learn to make the music their own and express themselves through the music.
Each lesson will be different, as each student learns differently. Singing is very personal, as your voice is a big part of you. I will try to find what works for each singer to sing with ease and enjoyment.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide a piano and a music stand as well as a CD player if you have accompaniment CDs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring music at the beginning, but expect students to buy their own books. They would also need to provide a piano or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I was trained in classical music; I also love singing Broadway music and pop. But throughout all genres, there are similarities in singing. Learning good posture, breathing, vowels, etc. are valuable in any singing style.
