Greg F. Minneapolis, MN

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Guitar, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

I am a professional Opera Singer, in Minneapolis from New York City. While that's my "job title," don't let it fool you. I have also spent a number of years touring with jazz, blues, and rock and roll bands as a pianist and guitarist, so my style comes from everywhere. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Vocal Performance with a minor in Piano Performance from Hope College in Holland, MI, and my Master's in Vocal Performance comes from The Ohio State University. I am a professionally managed singer, and have worked on a number of international operatic stages as a baritone. I have been on faculty at NYU-Tisch School of the Arts, and the New School for the Performing Arts in New York City. I have also worked in Musical Theater as a performer and more recently, a music director/conductor.

*** Lesson Details ***
I expect from my students what I expect from myself. If they do not improve every lesson, then I am not doing my job. Music is the great joy of my life, and with that in mind, I take it pretty seriously. However, I also understand that younger students may not have the same goals, and I always take that into account when dealing with high school age and younger. Most of all, making music should be fun, and bring joy to the ones making it, and I try to make this point every time someone opens their mouth to sing or puts their fingers to an instrument. My curriculum is different for every student, depending on their needs, level of ability, etc. but all can expect to learn the same fundamentals of technique for their respective instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano in my home studio for Voice Lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the students to provide a piano or keyboard for piano and voice lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I am a professional opera singer, and an accomplished jazz/musical theater singer and teacher. I also teach classical and jazz piano styles.

Amy W. Saint Paul, MN

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Drum, Flute, French Horn, Music Theory, Oboe, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

As I child I had an early interest in music, dancing and creative things. I took piano lessons and excelled at my chosen instrument, the flute, in band at school. I continued with my music training at Northwestern College in Roseville, Minnesota and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Education in 1992. I worked for 11 years in my profession in various settings before I took a break to start my family. My experience includes teaching students in classroom general music, choir, band, piano lessons, and school plays/musicals. I spent six years at a private school (grades K-8), three years at a charter elementary school and 2 years at a public elementary school. Also, since graduating in 1992 I have spent a total of 16 years teaching private lessons both at Hovland Conservatory of Music and in my home. Along the way I further broadened my background by accompanying church choirs and congregations, playing for weddings, and volunteering to lead children€™s music time at church.

I love music of all kinds and have a strong belief that everyone should experience the joy and power of it in his or her life. It is very rewarding for me to help students develop their skills as they discover a meaningful way of self-expression using a universal language. Teaching music is something I love to do and I know that fact reflects to my students resulting in an enjoyable experience for them as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
What can a student/parent expect from lessons with me? I can provide my students with a solid foundation of proper technique. This is so very important because you do not ever want to have to €œunlearn€ bad habits. I also include appropriate music theory, ear training and improvising for each level. I purposefully pace the lessons to prevent students from feeling frustrated. Instead, I work to generate excitement about the learning process and keep students motivated by their own progress. Furthermore, I am willing to accommodate a student if they have a special interest in a certain musical genre or a personal goal they are working towards. I encourage, but do not require students to take advantage of recital and performance opportunities that I provide.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large music room: piano, flute, clarinet, mouth pieces for trumpet, trombone and sax, snare drum

*** Specialties ***
I have a lot of experience teaching students who are brand new to their instrument. I believe the beginning is a very important time to start building a solid foundation for all future musical growth. I love being able to help my students establish good habits from the beginning and influence the overall direction of a new student€™s musical experience.

I love music of all kinds and have fun playing and teaching all the instruments that I listed. However, the two instruments that I have the most training on and have performed on are the piano and the flute. I would be a great teacher for private lessons to help a student excel in band at school or for a high school student preparing for contests or auditions. Also, I am very patient with beginners and would be ideal as a child€™s first piano teacher or for an adult who has always wanted to play a certain instrument of his or her choice.

Mary S. Saint Paul, MN

Subjects Taught

Algebra, Arithmetic, Basic Math, Elementary Math, English, History, Math, Music Theory, Phonics, Piano, Pre Algebra, Reading, Science, Test Prep

About Me

I began taking piano lessons on a whim in middle school, but it didn't take long before I realized I was completely in love with music. I enjoy playing and teaching many types of music, from classical to rock to hymns and church music. I learned to play by ear at the same time I learned to sight read, and both approaches have helped me to learn and enjoy the music I play.

I graduated in December 2010 with a BA in Music Performance from North Central University, here in the Twin Cities. I have been teaching piano lessons for the last 6 years, as well as directing a children's choir. Watching other people learn to play music is one of the greatest rewards I've received.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe music has incredible educational value, but I also believe that it should be enjoyable. Every music student is different and has a different purpose for wanting to learn music, and I enjoy working with students to help them achieve their goals.

Being a well-rounded musician has not only helped me in my music career, but it has helped me experience and enjoy many different kinds of music. I expect students to play different types of music with a main focus on one genre. If you want to learn to play classical music only, I teach sightreading, technical skills, and with a little time and practice you or your child can be playing some of the simpler masterworks by the end of the first year. But I also encourage classical pianist to try out a rock song or improvisation.

The same goes for those who are only interested in learning how to play rock music or church music. Being able to sightread is invaluable to a musician, and after a few lessons on chords and ear-training, I like to introduce basic sight-reading.

Developing a love for the instrument you play is just as important as developing the technical skills to play it. I do my best as a teacher to learn what it is that students enjoy most about playing and incorporate that into lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fellowship Hall - Baby Grand or Sanctuary w/ Grand; seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide sheet music samples for student to choose from (when applicable) and listening examples from pieces. I expect students to provide the piano, bench, and personal music books.

*** Specialties ***
I can play and teach in a variety of genres, from classical to pop to church music. I teach students to sight-read, and I can also teach students to play off a chord chart or by ear if these are things that student expresses an interest in.

I've found that the method books available to piano students are thorough and effective, especially for beginning students of elementary age. I've used different books, including Faber & Faber, Alfred, and Hal Leonard. All of these have strengths and weaknesses, and I like to pick the method depending on the personality of the student.

Depending on the student, I've incorporated ideas from different methods (Dalcroze, Orff, etc.) as aids in teaching rhythm and musical interpretation. However these methods are usually a curriculum in themselves, and I've never been trained in any particular one.
