George was so patient with me. I knew absolutely nothing about playing guitar and I learned exactly what I needed. He gave me the confidence I needed to learn the guitar.George is an amazing guitar player and I feel fortunate to have him as my instructor. I loved my lesson and can't wait for the next.

I am an avid teacher and have played violin for the past 20 years. I have performed in prestigious ensembles such as the Eastman School of Music Philharmonia and the National Orchestral Institute. I hold a B.M. in Music Education and a Master's in Music Theory. As an instructor, I will help you build a solid foundation in theory and ear training as well as violin technique, and can foster your development as a holistic musician. I have experience teaching all levels of violin (beginner-advanced) in both private and group classes, and am able to cater my teaching to your specific needs and abilities. Let's make music together!

I didn’t understand secondary dominants and figured bass, but Emily helped me decipher it. She was very friendly, and provided thorough explanations, and I’m doing much better with my theory classes now thanks to her!
Melissa
I had major performance anxiety surrounding tests and auditions. Emily was always very patient with me and knew the difference between my poor singing and when it was just my anxiety. She never made me feel bad about messing up and throughout the year I became so comfortable with her I only stuttered on really difficult sight singing. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a teacher that is not only great at teaching but also incredibly considerate.
Cameron
I had Emily as a TA for aural skills for 2 years and she worked with me both online and in person. Throughout my ear training, she was always supportive and patient with me as she helped me through all the material I struggled with. 10/10.

I believe that every student learns at varying paces. I emphasize my students strengths so they can excel at sight reading or playing by ear. I love to create personal connections so that our learning environment is safe and open. I am a fashion designer and musician who bonds very well with creative types! I encourage keeping practice records, but understand busy weekly schedules.

I began playing piano and viola at age ten and never stopped! I joined the Youth Symphony of Kansas City as a teenager and fell in love with orchestra. My private viola studies allowed me to join groups such as the Kansas City String Quartet Program and Heartland Chamber Music. One of my favorite performances was recently playing with the Heartland Chamber Men's Chorus.

About Hannah

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

My daughter Madison thinks that Betsy is the greatest. She was very excited, which is exactly what I hoped for. Betsy made her want to continue learning. Madison was interested in tennis a few years ago....her coach was mean and autocratic, which made her lose that interest. It’s nice to see how Betsy is an inspiring instructor.

Betsy really helped my 16 year old daughter in just a few lessons! She was kind and offered specific instruction that made a big difference!

"The best music teacher!!

My 11-year-old son has been taking violin lessons with Travis for a couple months now and loves it! Travis always has a smile on his face, comes on time, and is professional. My son had zero experience with this instrument before; so it was important for me to find a teacher who is patient, and Travis definitely is. He has a good sense for when his students are ready for a little push or need some extra attention in some spots. I highly recommend him!"
