About Me

I HAVE BEEN A PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN, COMPOSER, RECORDING ARTIST , MUSIC TEACHER (PIANO, BASS, GUITAR & CELLO) FOR OVER 4-DECADES. I use a "situational approach" in teaching and gear my lessons towards making lessons & Music FUN!!! I stress "collaboration" with all students and build a strong foundation with a goal towards performance and a thorough knowledge regarding theory, harmony, reading skills and self-motivation.

I have multiple music, music therapy and sound technology (studio) certifications from: Kansas State University, State University of New York (New Paltz), Catholic University of Nijmegen (the Netherlands) & UNLV (University of Nevada Las Vegas). I have an extensive background in individual student teaching as well as group leadership & teaching.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am not a "task master," and if a student chooses to dedicate themselves, the sky is the limit. For me, MUSIC = LIFE. Within six months, if a student practices, he or she can expect to be performing in a recital that includes a full-blown sound system, back-up band and fairly large outdoor concert area (with many guests, great food & lifetime memories. I have been having these "events" (twice yearly) for the past six years in Las Vegas & in addition to relatives and friends of the music students, there are many of my friends and neighbors who attend these outdoor concerts. The atmosphere is very professional and each student is given a good opportunity to showcase their talent. Plus, I always include group (i.e. "bands") of students, backed by my professional group.

In addition to reading skills, I stress improvisation, theory and composition, and design a specific "method" fpr each student. I use "Finale" for transcription of songs, arranging them to suit each student's particular skill level(s). I encourage lyric writing and singing, plus teach fundamentals of recording & sequencing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, Basses, 2 Keyboards, multiple computers and recording devices, microphones, and all the accessories. I provide 256-track sequencing and 160track professional recording setups, plus amps & speakers & sound system.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Arrangements, diagrams, folder, syllybus, teaching materials. Students need instruments and open minds....a pencil (#2) and staff notebook is handy. I provide staff paper & printed music, unless a student brings a particular piece of music on which to work. FUN & WORK are very compatible.

*** Specialties ***
Cello, Basses, Guitar, Piano, Voice, Theory, compositions specialize in Jazz & R&B also I teach sound technology (certified) and recording. I have a teaching/recording studio attached to my home with top professional gear.

About Me

I have been playing guitar for 20 years or more and I play everyday. I really enjoy teaching and learning myself from others and I'm always pushing myself to be the best that I can in my guitar playing. I played in high school and in college and I used to have my friends come over when I was in high school and we would all help and teach each other. These days you can find me out on Freemont Street playing my guitar and singing which is a lot of fun and helps to keep me in practice and become a better player.
If you find yourself excited about taking in some guitar lessons with me here's what you'll learn. I will teach you the names of the strings, how to tune, chords and how to play them and there locations, I will teach you songs and playing by ear and how to train yourself to hear music and play it. I will teach you to read notes or tablature, whatever you prefer. You will learn, scales, key signatures and the circle of 5th's. Does this grab your attention, I hope so?
I've taught many satisfied customers and the reason they come back is they know how much i enjoy the guitar and how much i love to teach and how much pleasure i get out of it .

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide a study packet for the student. I will teach them to read music, notes, chords, etc. I expect them to have a guitar, and the will to study the material .

*** Specialties ***
All styles. I want the studentto show me what they want me to teach them. I want them to start from scratch and go from there. I would rather they learn to read music instead of tab .

Julia G. Henderson, NV

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, English, Language, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

I began my study of music as a child with the study of piano. I also played and performed clarinet in the school band and marching band (highlight of my youth!), played and performed duet piano works, and also the organ. I was initiated by my native Swiss grandparents into dance and yodel music, which then interested me in ethnic music, in conjunction with my classical music studies. In addition to my music studies, I played intercollegiate sports and studied zoology. The schools I studied at were Western Illinois University, Northern Illinois University, Buffalo State College, and then onto University of New Mexico to begin a Master’s Program.

Upon moving to Manhattan, I studied with a well-known voice coach in the opera world, Tom LaMonaco. I also studied voice with Nancy Ribakov and piano with Sy Ribakov from the Juilliard School of Music. I studied piano with Monique le Duc from the Paris Conservatoire, Mary Gunning from the New Mexico Symphony. In conjunction, studied voice with Ms. Jean Kraft from the Metropolitan Opera (7 years), and Regina Rickless (1 year) from the European stage.

Notably, Julia was chosen to perform a piano concert for the Spanish Ambassador to the US in Albuquerque, NM. (1999).

I performed a solo voice program in Natal, Brazil which included, Lieder, Italian arias and American songs, and received the honor of teaching a master class to the opera students at Federal American University, Natal, Brazil.

I have performed numerous several opera roles and produced and performed for artist’s series in the US.

I have served at the University of New Mexico as a faculty pianist – (2001-5) in the Ballet Department at UNM for several years. In conjunction with performing, teaching and continuing my education, Julia prepared the children’ Chorus for Opera Southwest and was the director of the Edgewood Opera Group, which introduced the community to the opera stage. Many of my students were in the SWO opera productions and are presently at major universities throughout the US.

I have accompanied and prepared many students for many levels of recitals and competitions, auditions, college university music entrance exams, opera, and Broadway productions while also producing and performing myself.

I continue to perform, teach, and record Lieder and Chanson in Arvada, CO. and hosts shin dings regularly at my home with my brilliant scientist husband, Joda.

Dear Future Students,
I look forward to meeting you very much and exploring your music life with you.
Each music mind is different from the next, so bring your own uniqueness to the music and I assure you, you will find fulfillment and the evolution of your musical self.
I will give you 110% and I would like you to do the same. That means, you will need to practice! I practice every day and remember, there are many ways to practice. We can talk about this and I will give you many ideas.
There is no judgement in my studio. Learning music and continuing to improve is a process. Each person is different and contributes to their own becoming. Please don't worry about being like someone else. This is your turn. Your first lesson will BE A LESSON, and we will discuss the specific materials needed for you to study music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a very nice studio in my home, with high ceilings, which offer very natural acoustics. I use my home for my professional recordings. I have a 5'9" Boston, which is made my Steinway. I love my piano and chose it for its rich dark sound.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will travel to you depending on the project.

*** Specialties ***
I teach using a variety of the educational piano books, i.e. Alfred
but I like to also use materials that fit the personality of the student. This means I will spend thoughtful time picking out these materials for the student. I also use a memorization technique for piano students for part of their work program. I enjoy the Alfred Theory books. With regard to voice, I have in the past required my voice students to at least read the treble clef so that they may play their vocal line however, this is an option. I use college materials for explaining the vocal apparatus, but my training from master teachers has evolved into a technique that brings the voice to stabilized sound whilst protecting the vocal chords. I use the 24 Italian arias for beginners.

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 Associate of Arts in Performance (Guitar) Degree from Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, graduating in October 2008. He was one of 6 honors graduates in a class of 2000, learning every day from the best contemporary music teachers in the world. Nine months after graduation, he took a gig as a show/orchestra musician with Holland America Cruises. The same orchestra was also responsible for playing party/dance sets around the pool areas and in other lounges on the ships. After eight contracts with them over a 3.5 year period, he did one contract with Royal Caribbean, and one contract with Celebrity Cruises. These experiences took Andrew to over 70 countries on 5 continents, while working with people from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. On a daily basis, these gigs entailed receiving a stack of music charts in the afternoon, having a one-hour rehearsal with that night's entertainer, and then playing the show the same night, as if the band had been practicing it for years. Between this responsibility, and the diverse backgrounds of his co-workers, Andrew learned people skills and stress management skills that most musicians will never get the chance to learn. During his spare time onboard, he taught himself ukulele, mandolin, and banjo between 2010 and 2013. After arriving in Las Vegas in October 2013 he was asked to join "The Las Vegas Goodfellas" in early November. They are a group fronted by three male singers that has been a regular fixture in many casino showrooms on and off The Strip, at various corporate events, and at private parties, since 2007. They have also been 3-time winners of "The Best Band in Las Vegas" award from the Las Vegas Review Journal Fan Poll. Andrew began teaching music lessons in the area in early December 2013 and since then has acquired eleven private students ranging from ages 7 to 70 which include instruction on guitar(6), banjo(2), ukulele(2), and mandolin(1). Lessons will teach students the artistic, academic, and conceptual parts of music, as well as the subjects that can only be learned from working professionals, such as performance issues, the right and wrong ways to practice, modern equipment and technology advice, networking, and what it really takes to actually make music a career if the student so desires. Although students can learn a scale or how to strum a song if that is the goal, they can also go significantly beyond that if necessitated, requested, or desired.

Kristie S. Las Vegas, NV

Subjects Taught

Accompaniment, Audition Prep, Classical Piano, Harp, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano

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.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard
Lyon and Healy harps
