About Payton

Are you or your child a beginner and are looking for someone who is great with kids and is patient with nurturing the needs of each specific student. Or maybe you have been playing for some time and wonder how your favorite artists come up with these amazing solos,riffs, and licks with every song they write? Look no further, because I have always enjoyed working with kids and doing whatever it takes to get my student's to the goal they are trying to achieve in the wonderful gift that God gave us in the guitar. I will lay out the foundation for beginner, intermediate, or advanced so everyone can enjoy playing guitar while achieving their goals.

Hello, My name is Payton W., I am 24 years old and am happily married to my beautiful wife, Sara. I received an Associates in Guitar ...

Payton has been instructing my son in guitar for about six weeks now. He is very patient, knowledgeable and friendly. He relates very well to my son and seems to be genuinely interested in my son's progress as a guitar player.

Payton is wonderful! He works great with our 5 year old daughter! He is very patient and breaks things down in a way that our daughter understands as well as my wife and I who have no musical talent at all. It makes it very easy for us to help her practice! We think he is great and our daughter can't wait for her lesson every week!

Always positive and upbeat!

Payton has been teaching my 9 year old son to play guitar. He is very patient with him and really pays attention to his cues to keep his interest. Every week he offers encouragement with great instruction!
Janet B. Indianapolis, IN

I teach all levels of piano students from the most basic beginner to the very advanced students. I also teach all levels of voice students from beginner to advanced. I have been teaching both piano and voice for over 30 years. I try to tailor the lessons based on the student's individual abilities and goals. ?Every year, in May, we have a Recital and all students are expected to perform two selections. I also encourage my students to perform in various talent shows in the Indianapolis area, my voice students to join choirs (school, Church, community), and all students to post videos on YouTube.

Verified Student
Knowledgeable, Encouraging, Experienced

I came to her studio with no singing experience whatsoever. I was a little nervous to start singing in front of people, especially since I thought my voice had dried up for lack of use. But I felt totally comfortable from the very first lesson and I soon looked forward to singing every week!

After only a few short weeks with her guidance I have increased my range by a perfect fourth up and a major second down! My vocal control has greatly improved and now I KNOW I can sing confidently. Definitely recommend this instructor.
Todd L. Cicero, IN

Emphasis on what makes a performance with effort to show a good performance with proper technique and etiquette.

About Todd

Music is my life, and is something that I want to share with others! Because of that, I try my best to give positive experiences to all of my students. I have a byline that says "Music is Much More than Just Learning Notes." I believe that! Anyone can learn notes, fingerings, etc. What I try to do is add that "soul" element that each person has and cultivate that into meaningful music!

So, with all that said, here's what I try to instill:

A lesson is a place to share! I listen to students as well as teach. We all have something we can learn from each other!

While I want lessons to be fun and informative, I strive for complete understanding, which means any student will gain the needed mechanics with complete knowledge of why things ...

Easy and convenient to use.

My son has taken voice and then piano from Todd for about two years. Todd has proven to be patient, flexible and enthusiastic about my sons thoughts, ideas and interests. He has developed a very encouraging relationship with his student and my son feels comfortable speaking honestly and openly with him. Todd is gifted at his craft and has a true teachers heart.

I'm not setting the world on fire but then I've only had three lessons, and I've had some personal issues. Todd has shown patience with me and no doubt he is aptly qualified as an instructor in a variety of ways.

About Don

Don grew up in Indianapolis, and began his musical interest in church as a 9 year old. "Most everyone sang the melody during the song service, and I wanted to be different. So I started picking out parts to sing by ear." His first formal music began in the fifth grade when he took up the trumpet. From there he became involved in band and choir in high school and went on to major in music at Tennessee Temple College in Chattanooga. Later he earned a master's degree in music from Butler University, and studied voice and choral conducting at Pensacola Christian College for 2 summers.

He has traveled across most of the eastern United States as part of a college ensemble from 3 different colleges. He has performed in and directed numerous church musicals as well as ...

Teaching Philosophy

From the amateur and recreational singer to the professional vocalist, my teaching is designed to help singers develop a sustainable vocal technique that is grounded in solid scientific knowledge as it pertains to the anatomy and physiology of the breathing and phonatory mechanisms, as well as the acoustical laws of the singing voice. With all students, I strive to offer an environment of excellence in which the healthiest development of the vocal artist can be achieved. I see that each student be nurtured as an individual and patiently given the opportunity to attain a firm understanding of vocal pedagogy, lyric diction, song literature, performance practices, stage deportment, and all other aspects that help develop an expressive and sensitive artist. More importantly, I aim to provide all of my students with information that will help them teach themselves.

The nature of the human voice is affected by every aspect of who we are—our physical, emotional, ...
