Gabriel H. Milwaukee, WI

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I graduated with a BA in jazz studies from Columbia in 2007 and have been teaching since 2005. I have played in many different projects, covering many styles including Rock, Jazz, Latin, Hip hop, classical, orchestral, and country. So, I have a strong understanding on the specifics of each of these styles, and a big part of my lesson plan is to teach my students to be as versatile as possible. Hence they have many options as far as playing music. I also play a wide variety of instruments including Piano, Latin Percussion, Mallets, Drum set, Guitar, and bass, so if at any point a student has an interest in trying something different t they have many options.

About Me

Lisa studied Classical Piano under Ruth Jones for 13 years and under Audrejean Heydenburg at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She studied Voice under Tamara Whitley for 6 years and under Charles Livesay at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. Lisa has been teaching Piano lessons for 10+ years and Voice lessons for nearly as long. She studied piano pedagogy and vocal music education at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She then taught music at West Highland Christian Academy for K-12 students and Home School Band and Choir for upper elementary students. Along with teaching, Lisa leads worship at Bend City Church and has accompanied for several community plays and student scholarship events.

"I enjoy all kinds of music and really want to share my love of music with people of all ages. My goal is to get people excited to learn and expand their abilities through voice and piano and to prepare future performers and teachers as well."

*** Lesson Details ***
Lisa teaches all styles of voice including Classical, Italian, Jazz and Folk styles as well as Contemporary, Pop and Broadway. She incorporates the fundamentals into her every day teaching style and helps the student to grow in their technical ability through application in each song they study. Lisa teaches the student how to use their voice correctly as well as how to have good stage presence and performance ready ability.

Lisa teaches beginner piano students from age 5 through method books as well as more advanced students in either Classical styles or Contemporary styles. Some students have the desire to be concert pianists or to teach piano themselves, others just wish to play with a band or play songs which they can sing to. Both styles are valuable skills to learn. Lisa will discuss with the student which direction they would like to go and decide together what the student would like to learn.

Monica S. Milwaukee, WI

Subjects Taught

English, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Organ, Piano, Reading

About Me

I am a flutist, keyboardist, vocalist, director, composer, arranger, and educator who has performed in chamber ensembles specializing in Baroque repertoire since 1998. I have over twenty years of professional flute and piano performance as well as instruction on those instruments to my credit. My studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison covered the theoretical, historical, and performing aspects of music. My coursework in Madison led me to researching the secular cantatas of Christoph Graupner in Darmstadt, Germany on a Fulbright.

In addition to interest in performing newly-composed music for traverso and harpsichord, my recent work with many different people as a church music director has led me back to a want to teach full time. Helping students of any age learn to play the flute, recorder, fife, traverso (baroque flute), or piano as well as furthering knowledge in sight-reading, improvisation, and history is the goal. Additionally, I want to help music students of all ages find other people just as passionate about music with whom they could collaborate.

I look forward to working with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson formats are tailored to the individual student. There are many different kinds of learning styles out there, and I try to use what I've found to be the most efficient approach and then form it to the student's needs. I have experience with various published methods, preferring to work with the Rubank method books with other supplemental solo and etudes for later use for my flute students, and I prefer the Adventures in Piano and Wonderkeys methods for piano. (Please note that, if you have a particular method or publication you wish to continue, I have successfully adapted my teaching plan to many and can do so for you as well.) I have experience working with students with challenges such as ADD and autism. Though my approach is laid back, I cover a lot of ground. In this way, we can work together to get you playing a melody with a fairly wide range (on flute) or a simple piece with hands together in a reasonable time. I can also help with learning basic improvisation, sight-reading, ear-training, and other helpful music theory skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in music room, digital piano, music stand, chairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
At times, I can bring new books for purchase, or sight-reading materials. I expect the flute student to have a flute, a music stand, a 3-ring binder, and music for the lesson. I expect the piano student to have an instrument at home on which to practice, and should bring a 3-ring binder and music for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I consider myself a good all-purpose flute teacher, but I do specialize in baroque style and ornamentation. If I inherit a student who has already studied with someone else, and s/he is on a budget, I will work with whatever method they have already purchased. I prefer the Rubank books for starting out with flute students because it covers the various keys more equally, so students don't get stuck in playing only in Bb Major. I adapt them to the age and learning style of the student to make it easier to learn. It will be likely that I will begin offering fife-to-flute lessons for the younger ones, for whom the flute is too big. Future plans include getting certified in Suzuki flute instruction, so watch for that!

In addition to teaching regular piano/keyboard lessons, I also offer Wunderkeys lessons. Wunderkeys is an approach for piano lessons for preschoolers. I am passionate about chamber music. Getting a chance to get people to work together by playing music together is such a wonderful opportunity.

Peggy J. Milwaukee, WI

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Dance, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

Peggy
J. is a highly qualified and experienced musician and teacher in the greater
Milwaukee area. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a
bachelor’s degree in music education and a master’s in both piano and choral
conducting. Professionally, Peggy has worked in the Milwaukee and Chicago areas
as a pianist and ballet dancer for many dance companies including The Milwaukee
Ballet and Chicago City Ballet Companies. Throughout her career she has
continually served as a church musician (pianist, organist, and choir director)
for a wide variety of denominations. Beginning in 2000, she taught music
full-time in the Catholic school system for more than 10 years. Some of her
other accomplishments include directing musical theater and composing and
performing live accompaniments for silent movies.

Peggy
has enjoyed a growing roster of private students (primarily piano and voice)
since college.

By
sharing the benefits of what all of her experience can teach, she puts the
wonderful language of music within her students’ reach. Each spring and winter
they have an opportunity to exhibit their successes to friends and family as
they prepare and perform in bi-annual recitals.



*** Lesson Details ***
As Peggy begins lessons with a new student, they work together to establish what musical background, if any, the student has and determine clear goals in terms of the student’s focus of study. While some aspects such as style and specific repertoire may be more flexible, all will systematically develop a true understanding of the basics of music theory. Technique and habits of practice are made clear and assignments, tailored to each student, and comments to the student and/or parents are notated weekly. Building a positive, trusting, and respectful relationship with student is also very necessary. A teacher’s ultimate job is to teach the student to be his own problem solver. The teacher provides the tools. The student uses them in daily practice. Even as a beginner, a student will learn the process of preparing and presenting himself with confidence in the bi-annual recitals. How exciting to not only learn the love of music, but grow in self-esteem and discipline.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I DO have a portable Privia keyboard to carry in my car, but I believe the student must have some sort of keyboard at home with which to practice on during the week. Even a voice student would need at least a small keyboard, but, with my Privia for lessons, that would work fine!

*** Specialties ***
Strong emphasis on theory and proper technique. Usually a mixed rep. that includes classical with an understanding of the historical stylistic eras (as they effect interpretation) and (esp. with younger students) some contemporary genre that is recognizable to them to see the comparisons and differences.

Mary R. Milwaukee, WI

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone

About Me

I started playing saxophone in 1994. It was an immediate passion! As the years went on my thirst for music grew and I picked up more instruments. No matter which instrument I play the passion is the same. I like to write and arrange as well so I feel an extreme importance on music theory. I am classically trained although my drive is always towards roots music. I try my hardest to combine those two elements.

I currently play baritone saxophone in the Uptown Savages. I am also in the Dead Man's Carnival. In that I may play Alto, Tenor, Baritone Sax, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Accordion, Piano or sing. You can hear me on recordings by the Invaders, Midwest Death Rattle, Into Arcadia, various compilation albums throughout the world and the soon to be released Uptown Savages Album.
