Music Performance · In studio
Karen’s recitals, showcasing 6 to 12 students each time, always thrill
me. Men, women, boys, & girls of all ages and various degrees of
achievement stand before their audience with confidence. They have
practiced, not only the pieces which they play, but showmanship, not
pushy or cocky, but polite and welcoming. They make eye contact and
smile; some invite the crowd to sing along on the choruses. Even the
1st year students exude confidence.

The crowd returns those smiles, along with cheers and clapping. One
can tell that Karen has kindly and persistently shown and encouraged
each student. If any show fear, she does not chide; she accompanies
them in the performance and nods approval as they continue. I watch
that fear subside. They are then met with handshakes and pats on the
back. Next time, they will be even more eager to share the pieces that
they worked on and not expect criticism.

Karen picks a theme and arranges guitar, piano, and voice selections,
intermingled into a program that leaves a person well entertained and
planning to come back next time. I am not related to any of the
participants and have no obligation to be at the recitals. I love the
music, the talent, and the progress that I see and hear. You, too,
will be glad you came.

Guitar · In studio
I am 73 years old and have always wanted to play a guitar, Karen is a member of our church choir and had mentioned that she teaches guitar and piano. I asked if I could take lessons this past June and she agreed to teach me. I am so happy that Karen is teaching me to play a guitar, I did not think I would ever be able to do that but I am learning thanks to her great teaching skills, patience and fantastic knowledge of music. She is very encouraging and teaches on my level of understanding never above my head. I would recommend Karen to anyone that has a desire to learn to play a guitar she is perfect for me!

My daughter has been to Jennifer three times so far, and we will continue to use her for lessons. She is friendly, great with kids, recognizes strengths and weaknesses easily and addresses them. My daughter has learned so much in the few lessons she attended thus far. I recommend her to any one else in the Gilbert area looking for a step above the rest.

I cannot say enough great things about Ginni. I started having an interest in piano back in 2008 and stumbled across her profile on the take lessons website. I saw her for a few months and got really busy with my career that I had to take some time off. A few months back I remembered how much I loved taking lessons with her so now I am back to seeing her. The wonderful things about Ginni is that she is very encouraging, she can adapt to any teaching style(sometimes I can be a bit ADD and she tries different ways of teaching until she finds a way in which I am able to retain the information) she is very accommodating, and she makes learning enjoyable which is sometimes difficult to find with instructors. We laugh a lot when i'm in my lessons :) (I like to call the rest symbol a lightning bolt) if you are looking for a great teacher that you can connect with and makes you love learning piano then Ginni is the teacher for you! Happy learning!

About Zachary

I am a trained jazz pianist but I love many different styles of music. I grew up in the Portland, OR area, did my undergrad studies in Utah, and recently moved to Arizona to begin my masters degree at ASU. I have played in many different types of bands as well as played solo piano professionally. Whatever type of music you enjoy, I hope to be able to help you learn to play it. *** Lesson Details *** I teach students of all levels. Whatever experience you have, we will work with. I believe that it is important to learn how to play by ear as well as read written music. Understanding both approaches, you will be able to play almost any kind of music in a solo as well as a group setting. Depending on your experience, I can find suitable projects that will help you to develop your skills. ...

Highly Recommended

When I went looking for a piano teacher, I was looking for someone who wasn't too rigid so I'd have the flexibility to work on the type of music I enjoy listening to. I mean...who wants to play songs they don't like in the first place?! Zach is a great listener, is very technical, and can work with a student in a way that best suits their goals. He is very pragmatic, and as an adult student this is very important. I've learned a lot more than I expected at this point.

Bailey has been our son's guitar teacher for a couple years now. She is a very gifted professional with tons of patience! Our son, Anthony, can be a bit of a chatter box but when he starts to get off course in his lesson Bailey is great at getting him back on track. I wish I knew how she does it! Bailey makes learning fun. She's also kind, generous, encouraging, and obviously really cares for her students. She not only taught Anthony guitar but she also focused on teaching him music theory. Any student would be blessed to have her as a teacher.
Thank you Bailey.
