I grew up as a Suzuki violin student in rural Washington state. I received a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Central Washington University. I then moved to London for an academic year to study one-on-one with a violin teacher there. Following my time in London I lived in Seattle, WA and performed as a freelancer and also taught extensively. I am now working on my final year of a Master of Music degree at UW-Madison.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method draws on the Suzuki method, but also includes ideas and repertoire from other methods and influences. My favorite parts of the Suzuki method are the emphasis on learning by ear and the belief that music should be taught to improve people's lives not just to produce competition-winning professional ...
I strongly believe that anyone can learn to sing, and my goal is to dispel the myth that only a select few are "gifted" with beautiful voices. Singing is like a sport; it is about muscular coordination, which with practice and focused instruction, is something that anyone can improve! It is my job as a teacher to help you choose repertoire and to give useful feedback which will build your voice and your confidence.
My teaching experience encompasses students of all ages and abilities, some as young as 10, to those well into adulthood. The majority of my teaching and performing experience is in classical voice, with a focus in opera and art song. I get a deep feeling of satisfaction from watching my students achieve their personal singing goals, and have sent many on to ...

BORN into an artistic family, 25-year-old alto saxophonist Clay L. has been enthralled by music from a very young age. Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Clay began his musical journey by playing the drums as a toddler, and then moved to cello and piano, after which he settled on his instrument of choice, the alto saxophone, at age 12. In high school, with the help of his father and some friends, Clay discovered the music of Charlie Parker, and soon realized that there was no turning back. Over time and after much practice, Clay became a prominent player at his high school and the local Madison jazz scene, where he studied with legend Richard Davis. In 2007, Clay was awarded a full-tuition scholarship to the renowned Berklee College of Music, and since then, he has been a busy player in ...
I love helping people learn how to play guitar...it's that simple, I believe that if you truly want to know how to play, that it will become as easy as anything you've ever enjoyed! I like helping people enjoy themselves while learning!
I've been playing acoustic and electric guitars for about 25 years, and I love to help teach people how to get started playing on their own.
It's important for me to help clients figure out what they'd like to learn and where they're at currently as a starting point. One of my biggest goals is to teach people how to learn beyond just having me as a teacher, how to take it from there, and make it happen on their own.

Among all types of styles, strengths and weaknesses, I also enjoy working with artists who are interested in performance critic & songwriting development. All ages and all levels are welcome!
