I am an international recording artist and seasoned performer. I have been playing music since the early age of 8 yrs old. I have always been inspired by music and love to inspire others with music. Some of my accomplishments include putting an album out with Universal Records as a Nashville recording artist, having over 7 albums out internationally, and recording and playing with some of the biggest names in the music industry.

Confidence, projection, microphone usage - all work together to ensure that my students' musical performances are top-notch. I conduct two recitals per year and am working to expand our performance opportunities in the community. Many of my students already sing in premier choir ensembles and/or bands. I 'press' my students with various different vocalizes and pieces to ensure that when the opportunity to perform comes - they're ready.
Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom. "With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your sound. As well, piano students will learn techniques that will speed up their comprehension of sight reading and/or improvisation. Teaching gives me an opportunity to energize my students and share with them historically proven techniques - as well as new ways of practicing and performing." - Marty Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Marty moved to the Phoenix, AZ area eight years ago. Marty has over 20 years of performing and teaching experience. She studied for three years at the School of ...

I am a graduate of ASU's guitar program, where I got my Master's Degree in Music- emphasis in Guitar Performance. I have been playing the guitar for 19 years and teaching for 10.

Hello, my name is Dylan Zenner. I am a music education major at Arizona State University, and I have been teaching both musically,and academically for 2011. It is my belief no two students learn the same way, and that is why I like to take an individualized approach to each of my students. I firmly believe that you are capable of learning anything you set your mind to, if it is presented in a way that you understand. I try very hard to get to know my students, and the way they learn best so I can give them the most effective learning experience possible. Although I am a musician, I have previously studied electrical engineering at a university level, and am fully capable of tutoring in any subject at a high school level. I am a very strong mathematician, as well as writer, and I would ...
