Elizabeth E.

Indianapolis, IN

About Elizabeth

I've taught a studio of 25 students for five years and I studied privately for fifteen years, including as a music minor at the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I've also worked frequently as an accompanist for middle and high school band students competing in solo competitions. I recently relocated from Dallas, TX to my home state of Indiana and am excited to be growing my studio in Indianapolis!

I was born and raised in Bloomington, where I began piano lessons at the age of eight. In 2000, I attended the Piano Academy at the IU School of Music. During the summ
ers of 1994 to 1999, I attended Rocky Ridge Music Center in Estes Park, Colorado, where I studied piano and music theory with university faculty from across the country. I also played piano and clarinet in jazz and symphonic bands during middle and high school and was a member of the 2001 Indiana All-State Band.

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical piano and music theory skills. With beginning and intermediate students I typically use the Piano Adventures series of books, which I supplement with music in a variety of styles ranging from authentic classical repertoire to jazz. Whatever your experience or goals, we'€™ll work together to come up with a plan that works for you.

I am a patient, encouraging teacher and we have fun during lessons. I also expect my students to practice daily at home so that they can make steady progress.

PLEASE NOTE: Students need to have a piano, whether acoustic or digital, to practice on at home. This is necessary in order for students to progress and to develop good piano technique. If you prefer to purchase an electric piano, look for one with touch-sensitive, weighted keys, which will mimic the feel and dynamic capabilities of an acoustic piano. If you do not have a piano, I'm happy to offer advice on finding a suitable one before your first lesson.

Elizabeth is a kind, caring and talented piano teacher. Her enthusiasm to teach my 8yr old son Jordan was clearly visible. She is patient and flexible. Jordan has learned and improved so much in piano by a remarkable measure and has exceeded all of my initial expectations. We are very saddened to see her go and its going to be very hard to replace her but we wish her well in her new journey!

I've been taking weekly lessons with Elizabeth for almost three years. I first took piano when I was ten years old, for only one year ,and now over thirty years later decided to try again. Elizabeth has been extremely patient and motivating. She's very good at explaining the music theory. In addition to going through the practice exercises and learning books, she also assigns sheet music. I look forward to the lessons and am sad that she will be moving.

Janet B.

Indianapolis, IN

About Janet

Hi! My name is Janet, and I would like to be your new music lessons teacher! As a quick biography, I have 20+ years of experience teaching both piano and voice lessons. I have taught piano students from as young as 5 years old up to a wonderful lady who was a grandmother many times over, and voice students from 10 years old up to adults. I have taught students of all ability levels, from the most basic beginner to very advanced performers. I welcome you to come to my home studio. I have both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Arts degree in Music from the University of Indianap
olis. I retired in 2009 from teaching in the Indianapolis area public schools after 32 years of teaching elementary vocal/general/choral music.
As a student taking lessons with me, I will always put your desires as a musician first, and consider them to be the most important factor in guiding the progress of your lessons. While I will make basic assignments for you to practice for your next lesson, I am always open to including music that you would like to learn. If there is a particular style of music that you would like to study, or even a particular piece of music that you want to learn, please feel free to mention that to me, and I will do my best to find that music to add to your lessons. If at any time you have questions, requests, or comments, please either mention them to me at the lessons, or contact me by phone, text, or email.
I look forward to meeting you, talking with you about your desires and aspirations as a musician, and to guiding you and helping you to reach your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will work with you to find the most convenient time for your lessons. Lessons are given in my home studio. While there will be basic material you will need to learn proficiently, you will be free to select the style of music you wish to study. I always tailor the lessons to suit the student's desires and aspirations as a musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
office/studio space for lessons; spinet piano; electronic equipment available to play cassettes, CDs, videos, and DVDs either from my own library or yours to assist and/or augment the lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my piano students to own either a 3-4 octave keyboard, or a piano. They are also required to purchase any necessary materials (books, flashcards, etc.). I provide supplemental materials (teaching games, etc.).

*** Specialties ***
I use a variety of methods, mostly based on the goals of the students. For piano students, I prefer the Bastien Piano Basics method books. For voice student, I use a combination of methods developed by several different voice instructors.

Just had my first lesson and it went great! Janet is just the kind of teacher I was looking for. I am 67 and play the piano, but had not played in a long time. I want to get back to it and also learn some music theory which I never had. She is super nice, and makes you feel really relaxed. It was a very positive experience and I am looking forward to my lessons!

Josh L.

Indianapolis, IN

About Josh

I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years, and contempora
ry keyboard for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional recording artist I frequently take trips to Nashville for co-writing, recording, and meeting with record labels. I have written with well-known writers like Mia Fieldes from Hillsong, Tony Wood from Provident Label Group, Stu G from Delirious?, and Jon Steingard from Hawk Nelson. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic songwriters.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

GREAT TEACHER!!!!

I am currently taking online Piano lessons from Josh.
(With the emphasis being on Christian music)

So far it has been a great experience. Josh is a super cool guy and has very calm, easy-going, and joyful personality. All these things combined make for a pleasant environment.

I have not taken any piano lessons before Josh (I was very much at the beginner level when I started my lesson). Josh did a great job of easing me into the piano without overwhelming me with information and/or techniques.

With his background, I feel like Josh is over-qualified to teach the piano - especially to beginners like myself, but he did a great job of teaching the basics and moving to more advanced techniques based on my skill level and the way I was progressing.

He also did a great job of challenging me to take my piano lessons to the next level without overwhelming me. He has definitely helped out tremendously in helping me learn the piano thus far and highly recommend him as a teacher.

He has a great structure to the course but also leaves room for the student to give input on things that they may want to learn, such as: songs, techniques, etc.

Additionally, he has done a great job of making the piano make sense. For example, sometimes I can get lost with all the different ways to play a chord, but he helped explain it in simple terms that makes sense.

I have learned so much from Josh in such a short amount of time and like I said, I highly recommend you take him as your teacher.. Great Teacher!

Josh is a student of his craft. He works hard to be the best and is great at teaching others to be excellent as well. He has a very creative approach to teaching and understands a lot of different styles. I have taken years worth of lessons and as an improv type artist myself, Josh has helped teach me a number of elements that were outside my knowledge base. Solid guy and a solid instructor.

Mike gave my son lessons and taught him how to learn to play a song by listening to each section at a time. He taught some of the guys in my band how to play together in a group while being our lead guitarist. He's great if you just would like a practice buddy, that can also show you how to play better! He can give lessons to beginners all the way up to professional level. He is a lot of fun to work with too!
