About Henri
Henri is an experienced, focused teacher and musician who really enjoys seeing students achieve their goals and desires musically. Henri has studied privately with former Berklee Graduate Al Pahanish Jr (Powerman 5000), and former Capitol Records recording artist Morrison Moon.  He is a goal-oriented individual with a versatile background and a relaxed, "let's have fun while we learn" attitude. Henri believes music should always be fun and inspiring for everyone, no matter what skill level. FUN is always the focus, because if you are not having fun, why are you doing it? 

Henri also has years of experience touring both nationally and internationally with several award-winning Arizona-based performing groups (Dry River Yacht Club,The Hourglass Cats, The Everyday Players and Lara Ruggles and The Lost Gold are the current projects), perfo
rming shows in 46 of the US States, as well as festival performances in 2012 in Canada (NXNE), Norway (Slottsfjell Music Festival), and Mexico (Circus Mexicus) in 2016. His past teaching and performing experiences have really helped shaped the musician he is today.

Aside from working as private lessons/class instructor and performer, Henri can also be seen teaching for Mesa Community College as Adjunct Faculty in the Music and Business program, where he currently teaches MUC109 - Merchandising and the Law, and MUC210 - Concert and Touring Promotions, as well as working for several local preschools in support of his children's music business "Wee Rock Music.". A life-long learner, Henri is always finding new experiences and new ways to connect with his students, as learning comes just as much from the student as it does the teacher. You can always find him around "the music." 

*** Lesson Details ***
Students who study with me can expect for their guitar, drum kit, percussion, or piano lessons to be top-quality, personalized, and above all, extremely fun sessions that will cater to the students musical backgrounds, interests, and needs. I create extremely organized and specifically focused lessons so that students feel comfortable, not pressured, while learning their craft. The lessons I teach are a combination of developmental sight reading music, learning student chosen songs (depending on ability), inspiring and encouraging creative abilities, warm-up and strengthening exercises, proper techniques, listening for internal hearing, composition dynamics, chords, finger-picking (guitar only) and rudiments (drum kit only).

After 3 months of lessons together, students will have started learning several key elements to becoming an outstanding guitarist/drummer/percussionist/pianist. They will have learned proper form and technique, warm-up/skill-building exercises, to read basic notation, and basic rhythms/rudiments. Guitar/Piano students will be able to play at least one song utilizing both finger picking and chords. For drum kit/percussion, students should have no problem reading basic drum beats and being able to play through a simple song. With proper, steady practice, most students will achieve much more. I also focus on creative thinking, professionalism, and instrument tuning. Finally, the students will have started to develop a solid level of discipline that is required of any aspiring human being! Remember, "practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent."

*** Studio Equipment ***
Ludwig Accent Drum Kit, Tama Rock Star Drum Kit, Acoustic and Electric Guitars, Casio CTK-800, LP Assorted Percussions, Protools LE, Logic Pro, Korg Electribe, Reason 3.0, Ion Electronic Drum Set, Chord Charts.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide drum sticks, guitar, keyboards, percussion instruments, and all developmental material for students to retain and practice.

I expect my students to be providing the necessary musical equipment as well (guitars, drum kits, percussion instruments, piano/keyboard) for their private lessons. If they do not have these in the home to practice with, the lessons are much less effective for your student.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in the following styles of playing:

Rock, Hip - Hop, All Latin, Jazz, Funk, Blues, R and B, Gospel, and Dance. I also have a very good feel for World Music as well. I have a very free-spirit for playing, so I often mesh the above stated styles into a more progressive style of playing. I believe that you must be feeling what you are playing.

I also specialize in beat programming/sequencing, recording, organizing song-writing/song-structure, musical score, live performance, and professional music marketing. I am able to show you how to use programs such as Reason, Logic Pro, Protools LE, and Adobe programs to take your creative abilities to the next level.

I believe that these days, it is imperative for musicians to have four major components in their professional arsenal: 1) Discipline and chops on your instruments (including reading music notation); 2) Know how to successfully market yourself and your music; 3) Know how to properly develop a learning ear to record/produce your songs/tracks as well as for others; and 4) Understand and effectively utilize music production programs.

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your musical desires. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a music-filled day.

Meanwhile, she served as concertmaster for the Azusa Pacific University Symphony Orchestra. Kan studied under professor Charles Stegeman, and recently obtained her Music Performance masters.

*** Lesson Details ***
First, I need to talk to my students about their goals. Not only for the adult, teacher also need to know what kids want to know about music. They are interested in it sometimes, they just don't know. Second, I will let them know, interests is just the first step. If you want to learn, you have to pay! Pay your patient, and your endeavor. I will teach in some specific ways to motive students to approach the goals. for example: listen, singing, playing, reading is the process to make the students catch the goal faster without lost their interests! So involve more activities in the lessons is very important! Also, serious technique practice is necessary. As I mentioned before, not only interests, if you want to learn , you have to pay. Once you catch your goal, you will feel happy that the teacher has been pushed you for some boring finger exercise.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I do have a grand piano at home.For violin students, they should have their own instrument.

I'm a beginner student with no music experience. She is very patient and enthusiastic. I was able to understand some of the basics of music beats and notes on the first lesson thanks to Cathy. She also thought me the proper position to hold the violin. I'm very excited to continue my four lessons with her and I couldn't choose a better instructor than her. You can see her passion for teaching violin. I highly recommend her, especially for beginner students.

About Greg
I'm a local freelance musician living in Phoenix, AZ with a passion for many different types of music! I have a B.M. from Boston University and a M.M. from the UNC School of the Arts, both in Music Performance specializing in Trumpet. Though Trumpet is my primary instrument, I play and teach in a wide variety of musical disciplines, including Trumpet, French Horn, Piano, Music Production/Recording, Music Theory, and Ear Training. I've released one album of original music under the moniker Hands Up Eyes Shut, and I play in several groups in the Phoenix area-a classical brass quintet, two jazz combos, and an indie rock group, as well as substitute work with the Phoenix and Tucson Symphonies from time to time. On the teaching side of things, I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years, maintain a healthy studio, and also teach s
everal music courses as an adjunct faculty member in the Maricopa Community College system. I've been fortunate to have trumpet students who have been accepted as music performance majors at both Arizona State University (on scholarship) and Northwestern University (the best trumpet studio in the country for many years) if you're thinking of making music a career, and I'm also available for audition coaching for any instrument if you're looking to brush up on your All Region or All State audition material!

I am an adult learner and former violin player but hadn't played the violin in over 15 years.

I thought the way she gauged my residual skills was amazing. She chose short pieces in successive Suzuki books to assess my rhythm, subdividing, bowing, fingering and knowledge of scales.

She picked up on the smallest details - it was amazing really. For example, she mentioned that she liked the left hand frame, but wanted to check on one thing - so she riffed through the books I had and had me play a piece - just so she could see how the frame held up when I had to reach for the high c on the E string. She liked that I kept the third finger down while reaching with the fourth, but noticed then that my thumb moved under the neck - I guess this made her want to see how I shifted positions (I didn't think I'd have to do that in my first lesson after 15 years!) - and she saw that I had my thumb under the next. The craziest part about this is that this is a habit that my high school violin teacher dealt with with me!

More importantly, though, she was very understanding about goal-setting. She didn't lump me in with her younger students and asked very frank but focused questions about what I wanted to get out of playing the violin again - some that I hadn't even thought to ask myself!

I really look forward to my next lesson with her!

Katrina is enthusiastic, encouraging, and upbeat! My son has progressed rapidly on the flute after studying with her.

I strongly recommend Katrina King as a flute instructor after taking lessons from her for several years. She not only plays the flute professionally but also obviously loves playing the flute and wants to share that love with her students. Her philosophy is that if a student does not learn a flute technique that it is the teacher's responsibility and she will find a different way to teach the technique until the student learns it. She has high expectations for her students, will push them to grow in their flute playing, while simultaneously working alongside the student to achieve their goals. If I have a question or a problem with regard to a lesson, she will promptly respond by email to my questions. Each lesson I find Katrina fully present, listening for improvements and making encouraging remarks when she hears them, while patiently correcting any mistakes I make and demonstrating how to play that part correctly.

I think everyone has at least one good song in them. When it comes to learning our musical crafts, I truly believe a good environment with good people all having a good time is the best fundamental approach! I do not believe there is one certain way to learn things. That is why I (like many others) will learn certain subject easier using custom approaches.
