About Me

I teach according to your individual needs. I help you become successful on piano, violin, viola, bass, guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and skills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing music available to many. It is an inherited right and gift to enjoy a lifetime of personal satisfaction from playing a musical instrument. I love to help students build confidence and make progress. I help them problem solve by going through problems with them. I teach "how to think" and how to become a life long learner of the instrument. I love the challenge of finding ways to help students become successful at every step of the way. I am excited and enthused to be apart of student progress. I am influenced by many 20th Century performers including Van Cliburn, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Erroll Garner, Yudi Menuhin, Issac Stern and Horowitz among others. I am passionate in my teaching about providing an effective solution to my student's needs.

I am a professional educator who works with children and has the patience to help them. I am a performer who has over 30 years of public experience in solo playing as well as ensemble work. I have performed at Nordstrom for nine years, and performed at many private functions. I have performed classical as well as jazz music as part as my performance experience. I have taught private lessons for a total of nine years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in personalizing your approach to the strangeness of the instrument. You need to learn much about posture, and proper tone production within the first year. Method books are not "how to" books. You need a teacher to guide you toward becoming familiar with the instrument. You also need to learn how to listen to the sounds you make as you play. To develop "musical independence" you need to become musically literate, develop tone production skills, and internalize a steady beat. Rhythm and tone are basic concepts that must be mastered to maximize pleasure in playing your instrument. Learning how to problem solve is another skill I teach so you can help yourself toward progress.
I believe in using the instrument in daily activities such as playing "Happy Birthday" at family get together. Christmas Songs or Hanukkah Songs can bring much joy during December family parties.
A musician in the house brings much joy during holidays and celebrations; and the families are brought closer together. Memories are created and last forever. Playing an instrument is exciting and expresses what can not be said using words. I believe in teaching students based on their strengths, and building upon them. I am excited to help you learn!!

You can advance quickly if you are taught to listen to yourself and use common sense, and make sense of the music theory I will teach you.I will guide you every step of the way to understand how music works. Music lessons are fun and enjoyable. I am pleased to guide you through your learning every step of the way. My students in Las Vegas have had much success with my teaching and guidance. I will succeed where others fail. You will reap the benefits of my professional instruction.

I can tailor lessons based off the Student's needs. I'm available for homework help in any subject for Grades K-8, and I can also help High School Students with their Pre-Algebra, Algebra, or Geometry homework.

Andrew C. Henderson, NV

Subjects Taught

Banjo, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

Andrew earned an honors "Associate of Arts in Performance (Guitar)" degree from Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, in October 2008. This environment allowed him to learn directly from the best contemporary music players and teachers in the world, as well as be exposed to the music and entertainment industry, first-hand, right away as a student. After graduation he spent nine months in Los Angeles playing at local clubs and teaching, as well as playing a handful of live radio broadcasts. He then took a gig as a show/orchestra musician with Holland America Cruises. The orchestra was also responsible for playing party/dance sets around the pool areas and in other lounges. After eight contracts during a 3.5 year period, he did two more with Royal Caribbean/Celebrity Cruises. On a daily basis, the gig entailed receiving music from a new entertainer in the afternoon, having a one-hour rehearsal, then playing the show twice, later that evening. During his spare time, Andrew taught himself ukulele, mandolin, and banjo, and completed the extremely grueling and detailed process of being added to the on-call database for Cirque du Soleil. The cruise experiences took him to over 70 countries while working with people from a very large variety of cultures and backgrounds, and also put him under significant pressure on a daily basis, often with new/replacement musicians embarking and disembarking each cruise. After arriving in Las Vegas in October 2013 he joined "The Las Vegas Goodfellas," a group fronted by three male singers that has been a regular fixture in the city for over 10 years, winning the LVRJ's "Best Band" award three times, and now regularly rotating between The Tuscany, Ballys, Green Valley Ranch, The Rampart, The Golden Nugget, The East Side and Craig Rd. Canneries, The Decatur Arizona Charlie's, Club Fortune, and Lake Las Vegas, including various private events at The Golden Nugget, LVH, Mob Museum, and a few other locations. Andrew began teaching music lessons in early December 2013 and since then has acquired 21 students ranging from ages 6 to 70, either in-studio or at various students' homes, and at a nationally-known music store in the area. Lessons have included instruction on guitar(12), banjo(3), ukulele(5), and mandolin(1). Lessons will teach students the artistic, academic, and conceptual parts of music, as well as cover other professional-related topics if necessary.

Kristie S. Las Vegas, NV

Subjects Taught

Accompaniment, Audition Prep, Classical Piano, Flexibility Training, Harp, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Pilates

About Me

Hi! I am a soloist, chamber music artist, and music teacher based in Las Vegas, and I currently have openings in my studio for private music students! I would love to share my love of music with you.

I have over fifteen years of experience teaching piano and harp lessons to students of all ages and levels. As a doctoral candidate at Indiana University, I have the background and capability to teach beginning to advanced students. With a doctoral minor field in music theory, I provide my students with a thorough understanding of how music actually works.

I have earned national recognition as a winner of several major music competitions, including the American Harp Society Young Professional Competition, the Anne Adams Awards, and the National Federation of Music Clubs Competition. I have also been a strong competitor in several international harp competitions. I have performed throughout the US, including at Carnegie Hall, as well as at the World Harp Congresses in Geneva and Dublin.

I have been privileged to study with wonderful, internationally respected teachers. I enjoy sharing my love of music with my students. I encourage all my students to play their best and to learn pieces that they enjoy and that challenge them, while keeping the experience fun and nurturing.

I believe that no matter what someone's goals are in playing music, learning to play an instrument teaches important life skills. Among those skills are discipline; efficiency in completing a task (or practicing a particular piece); developing strategies to approach large projects, such as a paper or a large musical work; and how to stick with something, even if it is difficult. In that vein, one of my foremost priorities as a teacher is to help my students learn to teach themselves. I seeks a balance between challenging my students and cultivating a sense of camaraderie and playful exploration.

*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning piano students, I use the Faber method.

Lessons typically include music theory. Students will be given clear assignments to practice and complete.

About Me

♪ If you want to...

1) Build a vocal technique that will not fail you
2) Have piece of mind that the SOUND you want to come out of your mouth WILL come out
3) Know that you are using your own 100% authentic sound

...then you have found the right teacher!

♪ ♪ ♪ LESSON DETAILS ♪ ♪ ♪
Most teachers "vocalize" or "warm you up" for 5 or 10 minutes and then the lesson is spent just singing through songs with no real emphasis on how to execute awe-inspiring and healthy singing.

Working with me is a truly distinctive experience, much like a workout with a trainer (Don't laugh because I'm a little over weight!). We will spend the hour working on very physical and specific exercises to build a comprehensive technique that will support you through any genre of singing. At the end of each lesson, usually about 15 minutes, we can work on your chosen repertoire. Utilizing both vocalise and song literature that you choose, we will go through very pragmatic and utilitarian methods that will generate an easy, free and uniquely individual sound.
