Music Performance, Music Theory, Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba
I've been playing trumpet for just about 15 years. I studied trumpet at a college level at Lindenwood University, and have held top positions in the university's music ensembles, in spite of not being a music major. I will be graduating with my degree in Chemistry in 2013.
Outside of college, I play professionally with several groups, and sub in other ensembles whenever I can.
I have the most fun playing trumpet when I get to play higher and louder, so I specialize in jazz lead playing, and I rather enjoy the cover band gigs that keep me above the staff for hours at a time.
I have had the chance to study with a number of excellent world-class musicians, and I try to take the lessons I have learned from them and apply them towards helping my students. I'm trying to avoid name-dropping, but if you sign up for lessons, I promise to tell you all about it!
Also, I'm now doing online lessons too!
Piano, Singing, Broadway Singing, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Songwriting
Hi! My name is Angela, and I teach private piano, voice, and theory lessons. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Lindenwood University, a Master's degree in Music Theory from Washington University, and am certified to teach music to all levels in the state of Missouri. I love teaching, and have taught many ages (4 to 91) and ability levels (novice to advanced). I am a dependable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher. I offer piano and voice lessons for 30, 45, or 60-minute weekly sessions in my music studio. I do not offer bi-weekly lessons or lessons in the student's home.
I started playing piano at age seven when my mother enrolled me in lessons. I have been playing ever since, and I absolutely love it. I began teaching private piano lessons in 2003, and have taught many thousands of lessons since that time. I have experience accompanying choirs, instrumentalists, and vocalists, as well as playing as a soloist in various piano competitions and recitals. I recently began taking lessons in jazz piano, a genre I never learned much about. I believe it is never too late to learn something new, and I am excited to start this new chapter of my musical life and to use this new knowledge to enhance my own teaching.
My love of singing began in my freshman year of high school, when I joined the choir. It was a life-changing experience, and inspired me to make music my career. I immediately began taking private voice lessons, and became a voice teacher myself by 2005. While in college, I was presented with many opportunities to learn and grow, both as a musician and as a teacher. I sang in several different collegiate choirs, and was nominated to be in the all-collegiate choir in 2007. I also passed yearly auditions to sing in Voices Only, Lindenwood’s most advanced vocal group. During my junior and senior years at Lindenwood, I worked as the assistant director of Voices Only. This was a wonderful opportunity, and I learned so much while leading warm-ups every day, running sectionals on a weekly basis, directing the group during rehearsals and even during performances when the director was away. I currently sing in the Saint Louis Harmony Chorus, one of the top 25 women's barbershop choruses in the world. I am on the music faculty of the chorus, and am also the baritone section leader. I also sing in an award-winning barbershop quartet called Executive Sweets.
Guitar, Singing, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting, Speaking Voice
I've been around music all my life. My skills have grown through the education of school, which I was in band and choir, and also through life experience. I perform regularly as a guitar player/singer and eagerly seek students to learn what I've learned There are a lot of different aspects to playing guitar, whether you want to just sing and play rhythm, come up with cool riffs, or shred a mouth dropping solo in front of your friends, I can show you these things. I've taught a lot to myself through online resources and simply watching other guitar players on YouTube or in real life. So I want to show the student how to learn for himself also.
I've received A+ when I was in high school, so I started tutoring then in both basketball and some elementary education. I delved heavily into computers and music education in college. Even though my background on computers was programming and web design, I eventually used those skills to learn how to do music recording. So over the past 8 years my main focuses have been teaching, playing, and recording music. I hope you would like to learn some of these things.
