About Lisa

My Background in Music:

My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work.

I studied and played guitar and auto-harp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school.

When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and ...

Lisa is an exceptional person, let alone teacher. I have had the privilege of having her as my Aunt, and writing and playing piano with her has always been a fond memory for me. She made it fun, and even when I struggled, she was able to lift my spirits with her positivity and her passion for music. As a teacher, she's able to explain things in different ways and cater to the individuality of the student, which I think is key to building a solid foundation when learning a new skill, and developing said skill over time. She has incredible drive, and I think any student who gets to work with her will excel, while having a good role model to aspire to!

Lisa is by far the most experienced and practical piano teacher I have studied under in recent times. Her teaching methods and relate-able knowledge of brain-muscle memory were keys in helping me progress.
Being a studio engineer who is learning to produce, the fundamentals which Lisa has taught me are critical. Thanks Lisa!

feedback on lessons and teacher

Any time one takes up something new in later life it is a challenge to stay with it and not sink back into comfy life. i have enjoyed my singing lessons with William though it took me a couple to get past my self-conscousness. It helped that he moved the lessons to a church--from his home. Better setting for singing practice. And william has done a great job of matching our lessons to how i want to develop my voice.

I walked into the first lesson having absolutely no knowledge of guitar. It was nice to have a teacher that not only taught me how to play chords but also gave me a little bit of history of the guitar. Now, only three months later, I can proudly say that I know enough to play whatever song I want! He's very patient and encouraging. I would recommend him to anyone.

I honestly could not have asked for another teacher as kind, patient, and knowledgeable as Mr. Chip. As an instrumentalist with almost no singing background whatsoever, it was quite helpful to hear about and actually see how the body works together to allow for singing or speaking. It was also very helpful to learn more about the ways the body tries to help but instead causes more harm than good.

I believe Chip is a perfect teacher for any type of vocal student, from beginner to aspiring professional.

I started as a completely new student with no prior experience, and I was nervous for my first lesson. Chip had me at ease, and learning/practicing as soon as I got there. I've already improved some, and will be back for more lessons.

I highly recommend him to anyone just starting out like I was.

To describe Mercedes in one word: "Awesome!" She is very patient and encouraging. I started taking singing lessons later in life and have always been very shy about it. Not only has she helped me to break out of my shell, but she is extremely knowledgeable and I have learned so much. She has been gifted with this wonderful talent in music and voice and I am truly blessed to have her as my teacher.

She is wonderful! She really knows how to reach children which is that she has such a gentle soul. She welcomed us strangers to her home and opened my son up to several types of music he never thought about before. We are leaving the area which is why we had to say goodbye. She is absolutely meant to teach.

wonderful teacher

Mercedes is an enthusiastic and patient teacher! My children have only been taking piano lessons from her for less than 6 months, but there is a significant improvement in their abilities already. She encourages them to play with feeling, never overwhelms them with too much work, and is always so upbeat at the lessons.

She is Cuban, so sometimes you have to listen carefully, because of her accent, but she speaks English well.

Chrissy is always punctual and professional. After just three lessons I am seeing great improvements not only in my daughters guitar skills, but her confidence as well. She is also working with my husband. He is enjoying the lessons and is inspired by observing her rip out some rock tunes.

Bryce is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher!

He is also very dedicated and professional. He was able to quickly assess and direct me to new heights! I walked into my first lesson lacking confidence in my voice and feeling overwhelmed with nervousness. He not only made me feel comfortable, but excited to sing! By the time I left the studio, Bryce empowered me to sing confidently and really enjoy it. (In addition to the homework for the next lesson!)

I look forward to my next lesson with Bryce and would recommend him to any age! :)
