Overview

With 2 degrees in music and more than 6 years of teaching experience, I offer piano and voice lessons to any age and any level! I consider the most important aspect of teaching to be creating an environment where a love of music can be discovered and nurtured. Everyone is offered the opportunity to discover and deepen their love of music. I chose to make music my career so that I can guide you on your priceless journey towards becoming a better musician...a better person.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use one set curriculum. Instead, I have familiarized myself with a dozen various curriculum, and choose the best fit for each individual student. I am open to using books you already own as supplemental material and encourage students to share their suggestions in selecting music. Every student has different goals, and I tailor the lessons to meet them.
Within the first lesson, we will set short and long term goals and lesson plans will be made to help you achieve them.
I provide accompaniment and melody recordings for vocal students to practice with.
Material will be sent home with you to peruse at your convenience. This will include articles from music dictionaries, archives, journals and more to give you an opportunity to become a well rounded musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano in living room with waiting area for parents so they may sit in on lessons.
Music stand provided for voice lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Some music may be provided by myself and I am also willing to work with certain books the student may already own. There will be at least one book required for purchase. I expect students to have a pencil and notebook at every lesson.
Water is welcome and encouraged for vocal students.

Parking is available on the street directly outside the studio.

*** Specialties ***
Too often I have seen damage caused to the vocal chords from an instructor's lack of knowledge in developing voices. I am proud to offer voice lessons where I specialize in working with young voices that are still maturing!

I believe in teaching a well rounded curriculum and therefore introduce my students to the styles of all genres.

Kit has been absolutely amazing with my 5 yr. old! Every week
she can't wait to go see Ms. Kit. Kit is clearly a seasoned professional; she is patient, sweet and so encouraging. We love our Takelessons experience!

Kit works so well with our 5 year old, teaching her the basic fundamentals of piano. Our daughter often will try something once and not want to go back for the next lesson (soccer, dance, gymnastics) but after three lessons in piano she is still going strong and always looks forward to going! She loves working with Kit!

Superb teacher. Kit teaches 4 people in my family ages 15 - 46. She customized the lessons for each individual, taking into account their personal preferences in genre. She is extremely knowledgeable and able to explain things in different ways so the student can understand. Great with teenagers; my daughter needs no prodding from me to practice everyday and she looks forward to her lessons every week. Highly recommended.

Excellent people skills. Musical background and preparation excellent.

Kit was a music major at Casper College and participated in the choral program during her tenure. She studied voice in my studio while pursuing her major in piano. She was an active participant in our productions, concerts, and recitals. She was musically outstanding in her studies while here in not only piano and voice but in choral studies as well. You will find her to be professional, personable and knowledgeable. The best part is what a wonderfully positive role model she was for all ... peers, faculty and now what will be her own students. I recommend her without hesitation.

Great with Kids / Great with Teaching Piano

I strongly recommend Kit for piano lessons. She has tons of experience with children and is a mother herself now. Furthermore, her expertise of piano music suits her for teaching. With a little practice at home, Kit will strengthen you from a beginner piano level to intermediate piano level and further.

Highly recommend for children of any age!

I am writing to recommend the talent and abilities of Kit R., music instructor. Kit was able to provide a basic, age appropriate, introduction to music curriculum for my 4 year old and beginner piano curriculum for my 8 year old. Because of Kit’s energy and ability to connect with children, she has ignited a passion for music my children may not otherwise have. I would highly suggest Kit for children of any age, regardless of the child’s knowledge or experience with music.
