My name is Shanae and music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I began piano at the age of 5 and saxophone in the fourth grade. I switched to bassoon in band my sophomore year of high school and majored on it at Brigham Young University, graduating with a bachelors degree in Music Education in April 2012.
I have had many music teachers over the last 20 years, and each teacher has added to my own teaching style. Having experienced so many techniques and styles I am able to adjust to each student's needs.
I gained an appreciation for all aspects of music through my bachelors degree. I believe in teaching each student musical concepts that are common to all instruments as well as specific techniques for the students chosen instrument, piano and/or bassoon.
I am married to a wonderful man who supports me in all my ambitious dreams. He finds true joy in music and I often find him playing the piano or singing simply out of the pleasure of it. I hope all music students can enjoy playing their instruments and continue it throughout their life for the joy it brings them.
I truly enjoy teaching music lessons with all ages, to watch them grow and learn. Music touches us in unique ways and creates experiences that are unique to each individual. I love watching students find their own experiences with music and its many wonders.
*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons begin as the student walks into the house and up to the piano. As we get the supplies out we talk about the week and exciting events coming up.
Once books and notebook are out we start with our technique patterns such as 5 Finger Patterns, Scales, and/or technique books such as Dozen a Day and Hanon.
After technique we start into lesson and performance books as well as other recital materials. This is a chance for the students to play what they have worked on during the week, learn new practice techniques, and receive new goals for their pieces in their notebook.
For the last 3-5 minutes of the lesson the students fill out their reward sheets. For every goal met and every 30 minutes of practicing the student receives a sticker. Those stickers can be saved up to 'buy' prizes. Additional stickers are earned through memorization.
Lessons are tailored to each student. We focus on their needs as a musician and find more effective ways to practice and play. Technique allows them to focus on fine motor skills such as finger placement and posture of the hands and wrist especially. Lesson books move through concepts and we reinforce concepts such as note reading and rhythm through counting and note naming out loud as the student plays. Metronomes, duets and other tools are used as necessary to develop the ability to match with others and keep a steady beat. I pull from many sources and techniques to help each student reach their full potential
*** Studio Equipment ***
Musically Me Studio is in my home. The piano is within sight of the front door. Students come right in and sit at the upright piano for lessons while I sit on a chair next to the piano.
Bassoon Lessons are help in a room off of the main room with chairs and a stand set up and waiting to go. Bassoon students and I will walk to the room together after I answer the door.
Parents can park outside the house. The road is wide enough for cars to park on both sides without impeding traffic.

Hello future students!
My name is Chelsea Hamling and I have a huge love for music! I grew up in California and lived there for most of my life and then moved to Nevada (Reno area) and lived there for the last 8 years. I went on to complete 2 years of college in Idaho and there I took a class on piano teaching. I had a student I was assigned to for the semester and we had an end of the year recital.
I started playing the piano at the young age of 7 and I instantly grew to love it. I took lessons for 6 years until I had to move. When I moved to Nevada, I wanted to follow in my previous teacher's footsteps and become a piano teacher. I started teaching during high school at the age of 15 and taught until I went to college when I was 18. I was nervous at first, but it became just like second nature instantly. I grew to love my students. They were so much fun! They made teaching a hobby for me. One thing you should know about me is that I am a huge advocate of having fun while learning!
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
