Megan I. Prairie Village, KS

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Arrangement and Composition, Bluegrass Guitar, Blues Guitar, Composition, Country Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Theory

About Me

Hi! My name is Megan. I am a Wichita State graduate with a degree in music education. I have taught mandolin/guitar lessons for the past 5 years in Wichita, KS and in the KC area. I am also a music sub for several public school districts on the Kansas side of Kansas City. Besides teaching music, I have also played mandolin/guitar for several music projects from a typical Irish band to a free improve jazz ensemble. I am a very versatile player so I can teach/play from Irish to rock to jazz.

*** Lesson Details ***
When it comes to teaching private music lessons, I am a laid back teacher but I still have high expectations for each student. I really do not have a set curriculum because each student wants to learn something different. I have used books like Suzuki violin books when I have taught some mandolin students to teaching rock tunes off of chord charts for guitar. Whatever a student's avenue they want to take, I am confident the student will have that much more knowledge before they had started.
I can teach both mandolin and guitar any level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Be in an open room much like a living room with amps, instruments, and other musical equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have their own instrument. I expect them to have their own music stand and an amp if need be. I will provide copies of music at a small charge ($5) and would be willing to purchase the material if the student gives the money up front.

*** Specialties ***
For the most part, I play Irish, Jazz, Bluegrass, and the Blues. I am cool with teaching anything.

Timothy B. Kansas City, KS

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I studied piano, composition and music technology at KCKCC, where I played in the jazz band and jazz ensemble, and classical piano honor's recital. I've taught at two local stores and, for the bulk of my career, gave recitals at least once per year. For years, I sent students to MAMA (Mid-America Music Association) and have had an approximate 90% trophy win rate.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back, nurturing teacher. I believe that it's far more beneficial to get to know the student and cater to his or her needs and teach at his or her own pace, though I will not tolerate laziness. If my students are performing far beneath their potential, I can get mean in my own way (i.e, I will listen to Take Me Out to the Ball Game for a half hour in order to make sure they get it right). I reward "hard" lessons such as this with fun lessons. I like to involve the entire family (especially regarding practice time). I don't like to give grades so long as my students are doing their best, but will do if required and leave it to you as to how you wish to implement said grades. I also like to know what else is going on in my students' lives so I can assess exactly how important piano is at any given time (if your child has another important project, I will lighten up until it's over).

I begin with my own method which involves keyboard coordination exercises (in the form of familiar tunes) while teaching my own unique brand of word counting along with the white key letter names in relation to the black key groups (it seems out of order, but it does eliminate the "counting up" mental step that tends slow sight reading).

I use Faber & Faber method books and like to get students into more challenging "long term" literature as soon as I feel they are ready.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Korg Triton EX88. Korg legacy collection, Ivory, Sonar, Finale, Emu 18/20m, LTD F-50, Yamaha 720s, several microphones (both dynamic and condenser), 1986 Krammer Focus, Crate G40c, V-Amp II, KRK RP5 near field monitors and lots and lots of sheet music and cords.

I have performed in Japan, England, Scotland, Wales, Italy, France, Austria, and the United States. I know what makes a good musician and a good performer and I'm pleased to be able to share that with my students! MY STUDENTS WIN AUDITIONS! I taught in several of the States and in London. I am also a certified teacher in Missouri, Kansas and other States including England, Scotland and Wales. I hold a Bachelor’s degree and Doctorate from Ball State University, and a Master’s Degree from the University of Bridgeport. I have studied on fellowship at the Aspen Music Festival and University of London.

My lessons begin with some training in reading music (Music Theory) and I suggest that you purchase Alfred's Music Theory Volume One or Two depending on your level of understanding.

After refreshing your music reading and rhythm skills, we will listen to you sing and begin to vocalize. I will develop exercises just for you, to help you develop your voice, making it stronger and more flexible.

When you have warmed up your voice with vocal exercises, we will work together on the music you wish to learn. It could be a song, an aria, a Broadway or Opera aria, or a religious piece.
