Patrick L. Asheville, NC

About Patrick

Hi there, my name is Patrick, and I am now a new resident of the Asheville area. I am a music teacher of Trumpet, Piano, Voice and Sound Recording with more than 20 plus years of experience. Below, I relate some of my experiences and philosophies as a teacher of music since 2002. Trumpet Lessons I have worked with adults and children, with beginners, and with more experienced players looking for a push or a new direction. I have developed many different teaching methods based on what each of my students wants to get out of lessons. The heart of most lessons I teach is learning to play or understand songs. Usually, I rely on my students to select the songs they wish to study, which I then transcribe to make personal arrangements fitted to their abilities. Of course, I will suggest or ...

Laura S. Candler, NC

About Laura

Laura has taught throughout her musical career and loves nothing better than to introduce students of all ages to the magic of creating their own music. As a teacher, she focuses on a balance of inspiration and explanation. Inspiration: because if you don’t love your music, what’s the point? And technique: because if it’s easy to play and sounds good, you’ll keep coming back for more! Laura has a BA in Violin Performance and a minor in American Roots Music from Berklee School of Music, has taught privately for eight years, and plays in several bands. Laura has taken firsts in her age division at several fiddle contests, including the California and Nevada Oldtime Fiddle State Champions, Western Open Championships and top 5 in the National Oldtime Fiddle Championships. *** Studio ...

Laura is wonderful! She's totally inspired my daughter, who now walks around the house playing all our favorite fiddle tunes. There was one piece my dad in particular loves (Truck Drivin' Man) and Laura wrote it out for us. My daughter played it for her granpa's birthday, it was so sweet!

Stephanie is extraordinary!

I never gave it any thought that it would be possible to learn such a complex instrument via Skype. To find someone as professionally trained as her is very challenging in of itself, but to have someone of her caliber teach my daughter from many miles away in the comfort of our home is truly amazing! Stephanie was very patient, observant, extremely knowledgeable and a talented teacher. It is quite a luxury to have the opportunity to work with her. I'd recommend her highly. If you are hesitant to try her online lessons I would suggest you at least give it a chance; you will be pleasantly surprised.

Phil A. Asheville, NC

About Phil

I've been playing guitar for nearly twenty years and teaching guitar and music theory for nearly ten years. I have experience playing in a variety of styles such as rock, country, jazz, bluegrass, funk and blues. I studied music at the University of Illinois in Champaign, IL and took private lessons with some of the best guitarists in the area such as Brian Wilkie, who was a prominent Nashville session player during the '80s and early '90s. My course will place a focus on technique and ear-training will some emphasis on music theory and reading music. I believe proper technique and ear-training is paramount toward individual success on the instrument. I believe every student learns differently as well and think it's important to take the time to figure out what exactly the student
