About Charlie

B I O G R A P H Y

I was born and raised in London England, where I first discovered my love of music. Growing up I studied classical piano for 10 years, and was educated through the Royal Associated Board and Trinity College.

Moving to the states, I carried my musical passion and took further instruction in voice, guitar, saxophone, and violin. I graduated in 2011 from a pioneering local music school and have maintained a home teaching studio for several years. I have experience working with students from all ages and musical backgrounds, primarily working on improvisation, theory and composition.

I never thought anyone and I mean anyone could get me past the fear of singing. I have over three decades of acting, including a prestigous acting school, but never developed confidence in singing. Thomas taught me. He helped me develop my new voice. Wow! Thank you sir!

Tom is a most excellent vocal instructor

Tom is a wonderful teacher. He is always cheerful and encouraging and positive. He searches for the best selections to match my voice. He helps me work toward the best I can be and doesn't let me "settle" for anything less. Best of all, he is so fun to be with.

Piano Lessons

I started taking piano lessons from Dr Garrison in August 0f 2012. He has taught me about music notes and all their meanings. I started as a beginner with no musical knowledge or background. I am 56 and with Dr Garrison teaching method, knowledge and education he's given me the understanding I need to continue to learn from his instructions. Any questionsed that I have he has an answer for and each problem I have he solves each and everytime. I started my first lesson with an old keyboard I brought at a yard sale, but never used it. Since I have been under the instructions of Dr Garrison I have brought a Baldwin piano without any hesitation. I truly know with his teaching method/instructions that I will continue to learn something new at each lesson.

Victor P. Mission, KS

There is a theoretical component to ALL the lessons, masterclasses, and seminars I do. Music "Theory" isn't really "theory..." It's REALITY. It's the language we use to talk about our art, it's the ideas and concepts that make music work. Composition is part of this, and you'll know your stuff if you study with me. No brag, just fact ;-).

About Victor

Music theory will be a part of any music study with me, but a focused look at music theory to prepare for collegiate music study or improvisation can be helpful. I can get you started on the road to musical literacy.

About Heather

Teaching music is a privilege and a joy. I've had the great pleasure of teaching students of all ages and ability levels. Currently I am completing my doctorate in vocal pedagogy from the University of Kansas, and should be defending in early fall. My training has given me unique and comprehensive training in anatomy and physiology of the voice, which gives me a thorough understanding of vocal development. I am connected to area medical centers and voice clinics and am a Singing Voice Specialist working with clients who have been diagnosed with a vocal injury, such as polyps or nodules.

I have been teaching voice and piano for fifteen years, including teaching at universities as a faculty member. I strive to develop curriculum that is student-centered and will meet the ...

Scott S. Kansas City, MO

I have always thought of music theory as a tool for thinking about musical ideas and then communicating them effectively. It is broad field because there are so many different ways music can be. It's always best to know the right theoretical tool for the music at hand.

I have taught music theory both privately and in a classroom setting. In private lessons, I focus on my student's personal goals. Some students come to me seeking a firm grounding in traditional tonal theory. Often, my students are preparing for college entrance exams. Others are seeking to expand their knowledge and enrich their listening or performing experiences. As a composer myself, I live and work in this topic, whether I am writing my own music or discussing the music of others.
