Monica K.

San Tan Valley, AZ

About Monica

As certified teacher in three states and over 30 years of music experience, I am comfortable with students of all ages in developing their musicianship and love of musical expression. Playing violin professionally since the age of 16, my performance background includes symphony orchestra, mariachi, acoustic rock, chorus (alto), and various small ensembles. In college, I studied piano and currently play keyboard with a classic rock group.
My overarching goal is to share the benefit of a lifetime of experience with my students so that they will find their own 'voice' in the wide world of music
.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching is to customize lessons to meet the needs of individual learners and to make learning fun: It is always okay to make mistakes as long as you are willing to do the work to overcome them. I will be there every step of the way to help you meet your musical goals.
The curriculum used will depend on your current level of playing and the particular style of music you are interested in. From that point, I can provide you with basic theory, techniques, and self-selected pieces to guide you towards your personal goal.
It is my hope that our lessons will develop into a lifelong teacher/student relationship: There is nothing that brings me such joy as seeing my students move forward and develop their own independence as a musician.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own violin; students must have their own instrument. Violin students that have a piano in their home is preferred but not required.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in working with beginning students to develop basic techniques and notation skills.

Marty W.

Chandler, AZ

About Marty

Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom.

"With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your sound. As well, piano students will learn techniques that will speed up their comprehension of sight reading and/or improvisation. Teaching gives me an opportunity to energize my students and share with them historically proven techniques - as well as new ways of practicing and performing." - Marty


Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Marty moved to the Phoenix, AZ area eight years ago. Marty has over 20 years of performing and teaching experience. She studied for three years at the School of Music, University of Colorado, Boulder. She has studied in the Masters program in vocal pedagogy and has performed in a variety of venues from blues to opera.

You will find her pedagogy technique to be respectful of the masters that have come before her. She is also open to new techniques from belting (in popular music), to microphone usage skills. As a student, you will be invited to perform in student recitals. You will be joining a team of dedicated, passionate performers who know the pleasure of performing.

As a beginning and intermediate piano instructor, Marty will guide you in the basics of sight reading. If you prefer, your piano classes will consist primarily of improvisation and chord progressions (you will also learn a little bit of sight reading which will help you 'flesh out' the melody). You will gain a solid foundation in music theory as well as an introduction into the vast world of music history. All age ranges are welcome, from the beginning elementary student, to the retiree just now finding the time to pursue their passion to perform.

I have authored a variety of music theory articles to assist you with your progress. We use these in the lessons to speed up your assimilation of the material. You will receive support via this literature and will quickly recognize how music theory supports your efforts with either singing or playing the piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your voice is unique to you. How you currently sing and what you want to sing will be the foundation from which we work. We will explore your voice and strengthen it via breath and physical exercises and practice with a repertoire that suits your individual tastes. We will also prepare your mind for quick and fluid articulation of your musical sensitivities.

Music theory and various musical explorations will assist you in moving forward in the most rapid manner possible. Whether you are twelve years old or sixty-five, you will find fun as well as perceptive methods for strengthening your passion for musical performance.

Since your body is your instrument, I am very conscious of the need to assist you in waking your body up in order to perform most successfully. The warm-up exercises include not only traditional vocalizes, but also methods for stretching your body and strengthening your diaphragmatic breathing. My students become very aware of any residual tension in their bodies. Singing is a wonderful way to get in touch with - and expel - any way in which you might 'close down' or 'tense down' your physical body. By working with a caring professional, you will learn how to freely share your unique talent with the world.

As we progress through the series of classes, you will use breathing exercises to activate the thoracic (throat & chest) and visceral (stomach) cavities. Your lessons will continue into specific vocalization exercises; such as singing scales, triads and specific exercises to assist you with fluid musical expression. Traditional ear training will also be a part of the lessons for intermediate students.

Many of the lessons I teach include a theme of working on confidence, vocal projection, breath support, finding and releasing tension, vocal range expansion, audition preparation and stage performance. All singing includes a core of story-telling. You will be encouraged to 'deconstruct' a song and discover the story, along with the emotions that are found in the lyrics of the songs you will sing.

______________________

In a similar fashion, my piano students will work on exercises to establish kinesthetic learning or muscle-memory. I have a unique method for sharing chord-progressions and piano improvisation. You will learn to quickly share music in a satisfying and pleasing manner that will surprise you and the people who hear your music. From your unique 'ear,' and via your new-found understanding of music theory, music will pour out of your piano.

As a piano student, you will also be exposed to lessons of the masters who have taught for hundreds of years. Sight-reading at the piano is a very enjoyable skill. It is also a foundation from which we will work (while taking in mind your particular interests). Again, whether a pre-teen or a senior citizen (or anyone in between!) who has finally found the time to explore their musical talent - you will find classes uniquely suited to your musical trajectory.

Your lessons will proceed as you acquire the ability to successfully perform your exercises and musical literature. Playing the piano fluidly and sharing your abilities with others is an amazing experience! It is my intent to ensure that your progress is swift, enjoyable and based on the work of the masters who have come before us! See you soon... Cordially, Marty W.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, metronome, microphone and amp. I can provide supplemental piano music; in some cases, students will need to purchase their own music. I also have an area where parents can wait for lessons to end. We also have a market or restaurant close-by as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to student's homes - they need to have a piano. In some cases, students also need to buy their own voice or piano books. In the event that a vocal student prefers in-home lessons and does not have a piano, I can bring an electric piano to the lessons (let's talk!).

*** Specialties ***
Barbara Doscher method of Opera Voice and Singing
Have experience with conducting choral music
Piano - beginner and intermediate sight reading
Piano - chord progression and music theory (some songwriting)

At first the reason I decided to take singing lessons was just for fun but after 9+ months with Marty, man oh man... I have made lots of progress, am more confident in my singing abilities, and learned a great deal of what it takes to be a great singer. Sometimes when I'm singing, I'm completely a different person!

I still have a long way to go, but Marty has taught me that it is possible for anybody to sing well and that is why we need Marty! She is friendly, very encouraging and full of energy and fun. Thank you, Marty!

I just finished my first lesson with Marty today. I was nervous and excited before the lesson but Marty was very welcoming, warm and friendly. She is very passionate about music and singing and during the lesson I could feel she was invested in my success. In the first lesson I already felt equipped to begin learning and practicing things to help me on my journey toward my goals. She also communicated a great commitment to my goals which was a major point for me. Her knowledge of music added to my excitement because I enjoy learning and Marty was more than happy to educate me, even on more complex topics. I am glad that Marty will be part of my journey to improving my musical skills and consequently, my life.

Phillip Z.

Chandler, AZ

About Phillip

I teach music. The guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele just happen to be the particular instruments I choose. Music as a language, discipline, and art, is the goal. I've been teaching, performing, studying, composing, for some thirty years. I've studied and gigged in the classical, jazz, rock, blues, R & B, and country idioms. I've taught composition and improvisation to instruments other than guitar, (vocalists, fiddle, sax, piano, trumpet) I've taught all ages and levels. I currently pursue a doctorate of music in guitar at university. Students learn many things when studying with me.
They learn physically how to play a particular instrument while learning music as its own language. Students learn how to learn, learn self-discipline, and access their musical expression, all potential life changing experiences. I am happy and excited to announce I am available for on-line lessons, and will now be able to work with students from all over the world, regardless of distance or location!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am laid back, but at the same time very goal directed. I like to do technique and/or vocabulary, note reading, and songs every lesson. After six months students are able to to 'jam', (improvise over chord changes such as the blues). They are well on their way to becoming literate, probably a third way through the first book. They probably can play a half dozen songs well, and are starting to strum (comp) chord progressions in a musically rhythmic way. They may even have played in a couple concerts by then.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office studio w/ guitar, bass, amps, and seating for parents, computer with skype capability.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my guitar and writing tools, extra picks, extra paper etc. Students provide their own instrument, method book, staff paper, notebook paper. Hopefully they have a music stand and their own guitar picks and other items relevant for the study of their instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, theory/composition, improvisation

I've been taking online lessons with Phil for almost two years now and have been enjoying every minute of it. It is very seldom you come across someone who truly loves music and shines through in teaching style. His love for music is an inspiration for me. Phil is an experienced professional, reliable, enthusiastic and his lessons are always meaningful and productive. If you're wanting to learn how to play the guitar or uke, Phil is the guy. Never to late to learn how to play an instrument. He is the best. ;-)

Lisa T.

Casa Grande, AZ

About Lisa

I come from a family of musicians and grew up with guitar and piano music in the house. I believe music is a gift to enjoy and develop! I began playing guitar and singing at the age of 13. I have played, taught and performed music since that time.
I have worked with musicians from various levels throughout the years in many different genres such as country, pop, folk and contemporary Christian music. I have also done some studio work. I have also played coffee shops and open mics in the Chicago area. For the past 10 years I have been a member of my church worship team playing guitar and sing
ing. I hold a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Northeastern Illinois University. Presently I teach both privately and in an academic after school program in Palatine, Il. I am very patient and actually truly enjoy my beginner guitar students. I love to see the look on their face when they finally play that first song.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach beginner and intermediate guitar and I especially enjoy teaching first time guitarist whether young or old. With beginner guitar you can expect to learn the basics of the guitar. Lessons include correct finger positioning, knowledge of strings, basic tablature, rhythm patterns and simple chords. After beginner guitarists go on to learn more complex rhythm patterns and more advanced chord work. I will tailor a music instruction program specifically for you with you. I want your feedback on what you want. I want consistent feedback as you are paying me for your instruction. I have many students who just want to learn particular songs from artists such as Miley Cyrus, The Beatles, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift. I am fine with this method of instruction in fact many schools such as Old Town School of Folk Music uses this method. I think this method of learning particular songs (that interest the student) motivates them to more consistent practice. Setting goals is very important to maintaining consistency and direction and I work with you on a specific lesson plan. Students then can see progress and this in itself is motivating and track-able.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide nothing other than a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach basic beginner guitar. I can play most genres.

Lisa is bright and compassionate. She definitely has a gift of teaching, which makes learning guitar fun. Though I had some past music experience, I always was kind of stumped by it as well. For the first time I feel like I truly understand music and rhythm. From building your chord library to strumming techniques taught in a way that intuitively makes sense, you will love music and guitar even more, more than you possibly thought you could.

Gilbert, AZ

About Sara Riley

I have two passions.

Music: Music is my favorite, favorite thing. If you want to learn to play your favorite pop/folk songs, I'd love to help you learn the tricks to make it easy and fun! Let's come up with some accompaniments that are inspired by your favorite songs but are still all your own. That is also the best way to became a songwriter. If you want to learn to write some songs that are true to you, I can help you do that, too.

Fitness: My degree is in Sport Science and I've been a happily employed master trainer and studio owner for 15 years. I sold my studio in Portland, so
my studio is sparse here, but I've got all that I need, including a Sunlighten Infrared sauna, and a chlorine-free, bromine-free pool. I love variety and even if you train with me for 5 years you won't repeat a workout. I still have clients on both coasts that I train over Skype so I am very experienced with that. Fitness should be fun and empowering.

She is an amazing teacher whose zest for knowledge and willingness to share that knowledge is truly inspirational in any venue she is teaching. Although I used Sara's personal training services, she inspired me to begin taking guitar lessons after she shared her music with me during a training session. Sara is one of the best teachers I've had over my lifetime.
