Jared L.

Louisville, KY

I've been playing piano for over 20 years and have taught for over 10 years. I teach a variety of styles and I specialize in working with beginners. I'm the most patient teacher you will ever meet! For those who are looking to build basic playing and reading skills for piano, I enjoy using the Faber and Faber Piano Adventures series, and I've seen much success with it over the course of thousands of lessons! You can expect to develop your skills with scales, arpeggios and fingering patterns. For those who want an in-depth approach, I enjoy a theory-based method that helps the student to understand music in great detail. If you want to play some of your favorite songs, I'll show you how.

About Jared

I'm the most patient instructor you'll ever meet! Whether you're looking to learn to play an instrument you've always wanted to play, play some of your favorite songs, or just want to learn for fun, I'm here to help you.

I've been teaching in the Louisville area for nearly 8 years and have worked with over 125 clients for over 7,000 lessons. I'm fun, relaxed, and able to adjust to your particular needs. I have a rich background in music education and performance, having grown up with two professional musicians, performing in several prestigious music ensembles, and earning professional degr
ees in music performance and composition from the Wheaton Conservatory of Music. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advanced students who'd like fine tuning. The vast majority of my students have been beginners. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert in need of some fine tuning, I'll carefully evaluate your strengths and weakness and create a lesson plan suited to your individual learning style, interests and needs. We'll discuss where you'd like to go with music, and I'll help you get there! After 3 or 6 months with me, you'll learn the musical foundations of rhythm, ear training, posture, technique, music theory and performance, and a few of your favorite songs!

I haven't taken a lesson with Jared through takelessons, but I've sung with Jared and benefited from his extraordinary vocal, piano, and songwriting abilities. I'm struck by Jared's care for people, and his desire to see them succeed in their goals. I highly recommend him!

I've had the privilege of observing Jared give many lessons in both piano and voice. I've taught piano and voice myself for many years, and I've learned valuable tips from him. He communicates clearly with people of all ages, personalities, and backgrounds. He knows the secret of drawing out the best the student has to offer, both musically and as a whole person. His techniques for vocal training are a synthesis of his excellent musical background with experience as a leadership coach. Believe me, I've observed many teachers and taken lots of lessons myself. Jared is in the top of the top tier.

Justin is the best vocal teacher one could ask for. I always have a great time with him. He really cares about your progress and will try just about anything to get you to improve. He moved away from my location, and no other vocal teacher I've been with since has matched his quality.

Eva M.

Louisville, KY

Whether young or old, I can assure you that piano lessons with me are a fun and engaging experience! I fell in love with the piano at a very young age, began lessons at age eight and have been playing ever since. I excel at making piano lessons easy and accessible for my beginning students. Together, we will work not only on playing and technique, but also music theory and sight reading. Because of this broad education and musical foundation, my students can feel confident that they have the skills to take their musical journey in any direction they please!

About Eva

If you are looking for a truly caring, passionate and dedicated teacher and want to have a rare and life-changing experience in your lessons, then look no further! I am a professional musician, I sing, play piano, and teach both voice and piano lessons.

This unique combination of abilities and areas of expertise offers me the chance to help my students to grow, transform, and awaken their gifts on every level.

As a teacher, my number one goal for each of my students is to foster confidence in one's self and one's abilities, and to grow one's skills in and passion for music. As I appr
eciate and expect that each student's goals and interests in music will be different, I approach each student and their lessons accordingly. Whether my students are young or old; whether they view their lessons as a just-for-fun hobby; or whether they wish to pursue a serious music career - I am happy to facilitate all of this and more, as we work together to reach their goals.

Thanks to my rigid classical background in music, I have the technical knowledge and skills to ensure that students create music in a way that is based in proper technique and strong musicianship. I also treat music lessons as a means of helping students to express themselves, explore their creativity, to heal, and to move towards being the best version of themselves. I take a truly holistic approach in my music lessons, and hope that it will be a therapeutic, empowering and transformative experience for each of my students. I offer each student a fun, warm, loving environment, in which to find their own unique style and sound, and to celebrate themselves and their gifts.

In addition to my work as a musician and teacher, I am also a psychic healer. I am a trained and certified Reiki Master and highly gifted intuitive. Through my work as a psychic healer, I not only offer my clients the benefit of energy healing, but also act as a channel and medium for clients to receive healing messages from their angels, spirit guides, and loved ones who have crossed into spirit. My intuitive gifts and love of healing impact and inform all of the work that I do, and as a music teacher, allows me to offer a truly unique, holistic, and healing experience to each of my students.

Alison S.

Louisville, KY

You'll learn about chords, chord structures, hand positions, scales, finger exercises, as well as different genres of music from classical to pop.

I've been playing piano for about 15 years. It's a very versatile instrument! Learning piano even opens the way to learning other instruments. It also helps with music theory (and you'll be learning some theory along the way, which will help your playing). The first lessons usually are spent learning notes, rhythms, hand positions, and even a few songs! As you progress, you'll start moving more fluently around the keyboard, playing chords, recognizing patterns, using the pedals, and even take on some songs you're personally interested in playing.

I'm not a strict teacher; I'd rather my students enjoy the learning process and have fun with their instrument. I teach every student a little differently based on their age, previous knowledge, goals, learning style, and personality. I encourage my students to practice thoughtfully - I ...

About Alison

***About Me***

I'm passionate about music and love sharing that through performance and teaching. As an active musician, I teach a full private lesson studio during the week and play gigs on the weekends. That's right, music is not just a "side-job" or a way to make a few "extra" bucks, it is actually my profession and I take teaching my students seriously. It is my goal to provide a solid foundation in music fundamentals while keeping students inspired as much as I can, especially because music can be tough sometimes!

I received my degree in viola performance from the University of Lou
isville School of Music in May 2010. I play violin, viola and piano regularly and have played them most of my life. On the weekends, I play viola in a string trio called Electria for weddings or events. We often play popular music on electric instruments accompanied by backtracks. Playing popular music has expanded my knowledge and experience. Of course classical will always have a place! It is beautiful and timeless! But playing current music is also a lot of fun, and appeals to the modern student. There's room for all kinds of music and I embrace it all!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm not a really strict teacher but I do encourage my students to push themselves and really make the most of their practice time, especially if they have busy schedules. I believe in customizing my teaching style to my student's needs and desires. I'm very positive and encouraging while never sacrificing constructive feedback.

***What to Expect***
After 3 months with a beginning Viola, Violin, or Piano student, I expect you to be able to read the notes (without having to write them all in), understand basic rhythms, have learned how to play a scale (or more), and have completed a few of songs.

After 6 months, I expect that my students will have relative ease with reading their music, playing with hands together on piano, and starting to master basic bowing techniques and coordination on Violin and Viola.

Learning an instrument is difficult, but so rewarding. With the right teacher it can be a wonderful experience, and that's my goal. I want music to be enjoyable, interesting, fun and enriching for my students. My style is encouraging, positive, and thoughtful... I try to teach in a way that is comprehensive and wholistic!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room, grand piano and an electric piano, room for parents to wait on a couch or chair, music stand, metronome

***What you should bring***
Sheet Music/Books
Rosin (for violin/viola students)

*** Specialties ***
I mainly focus on classical training, however I customize the teaching repertoire to incorporate my student's music tastes and interest. As I teach, I incorporate music theory so that my students may have a better understanding of how the music is structured because my goal is that they understand music from a wholistic perspective so that it can be enjoyed for a lifetime!

***Studio Policies***
I am flexible and easy to work with, however I am running a full private lesson studio and time is limited! I do require a 24-hour cancellation notice if you are unable to attend a lesson - as it does allow me to use that time to reschedule another student or optimize my time. If notice is given the day of your lesson, the lesson will be marked as "missed." With a day's notice, I will "cancel" the lesson and your lesson credit will not be used. You are welcome to reschedule your lesson to another available time during the week, however, the 24-hour notice still applies. I don't want to be unfair to you and I just ask the same of my students :)

Keep in mind, regular lessons really do make a difference in students' progress and enthusiasm, so I encourage you to keep a regular lesson schedule if possible!
