Phillip F.

Rural Hall, NC

Phillip teaches any level from ages 4-100. Anyone can learn at any age.

About Phillip

Pianist and singer Phillip F. started learning to play the piano at age 6. Growing up he competed and placed highly in many competitions including playing with the Symphony Orchestra in his home town of Spartanburg, SC after winning it's concerto competition at the age of 17. In college he took piano from Dr. Charles Fugo at the University of South Carolina and also started taking voice lessons from Tonya Currier and Walter Cuttino. While still in college he worked with The South Carolina Opera company for a season as a member of the ensemble and as Chorus Master.
Since college, he has work
ed with different theater and opera companies as a lead actor and as a musician.
He has many years of teaching experience with piano at all experience levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have experience teaching since 1995 while I was still in college. I primarily use Alfred and "Faber & Faber" piano methods for beginners. I teach how to read music, understand the theory behind the music, and the technique needed in a patient atmosphere at the pace of the student. I also teach you how the piano works and the different types of pianos as well as the history of keyboards used for different classical music. The lessons are geared toward the goals of the student no matter what level is desired.
In teaching singing, I will teach you the basics necessary to create a healthy and relaxed sound through technique. With experience singing music ranging from classical to contemporary church music to musical theater, I can teach you how to use the voice in a way that will promote a long time of singing without adding stress to the voice. I will work with any style of music and will give you the technique and confidence needed to become a better singer.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Walk into house, on left is a room with a piano and books with big windows to look out through room. Pianos are an upright piano and an Alesis Synthesiser. Seating is available for parents as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a piano or an electric keyboard at home for piano lessons. For voice lessons a keyboard is not required but is helpful.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily teach piano in a classical style using either "Faber & Faber" or Alfred Methods for piano lessons.
For voice, I teach all my students to sing in a way that will be the most beneficial to the health of their voice. Doing this is helpful to all styles of singing.

Megan C.

Winston Salem, NC

Having played and studied piano since the age of 6, I have acquired the knowledge required to teach students of beginning and intermediate levels a complete and well rounded technique. Lessons include scale work, music theory, ear training, correct postural techniques, and musical styles. I incorporate classical, jazz, blues, pop, and American folk repertoire to ensure students are confident in playing a variety of styles. My students range in age from 4-40. Games are a big part of my teaching style, and I employ them during each lesson to incorporate fun with fundamentals. If my students aren't having fun, I'm not doing my job.

About Megan

Megan is a soprano described as being “blessed with a powerful coloratura and lovely vibrato.” In addition to teaching voice and piano, Megan has performed concert and operatic roles all over the US and Europe to include Notre Dame Cathedral and the Palace of Versailles and is quickly becoming a sought after soprano for lyric coloratura roles.

Megan has gained quite a following as a vocal and piano teacher, and her students consistently perform lead roles and solos, receive scholarships, give recitals, and gain entrance into college music degree programs. In addition to her degrees at UNCSA
where she received the Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in voice, Megan also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from East Tennessee State University. Megan believes possessing a firm understanding of the anatomy of the human body and voice enables her to better use her instrument and thus incorporate that knowledge into her teaching.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to begin my getting to know my students-their abilities, personalities, musical knowledge, and desires. I am comfortable teaching students of all ages and levels. I equally enjoy teaching students who wish to pursue music professionally and the casual learner who just wants to entertain friends and family.Vocally, I believe the fundamentals of correct classical vocal technique will carry you throughout your studies and career and allow you to healthily venture into other musical styles like musical theatre, jazz, and pop.

All lessons are individualized to accommodate and best serve each student. Lessons can include vocal/piano techniques including learning to read music, ear training, music theory and history, and language and character study. I love to play games with my students, and having fun is a top priority!

*** Studio Equipment ***
student practice rooms chairs mirror full piano seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some books and a music stand. I expect my students to provide a keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
Beginner and Intermediate Piano, Opera, Musical Theater, Languages

Great with kids!

My six year old daughter has been studying with "Miss Megan" for about 8 months and we couldn't be more pleased with her progress. She loves her lessons and looks forward to her time with Megan every week. Megan brings thoughtful lesson plans and manages the time very well to include scales, basic theory, and appropriately leveled pieces. We are so excited to continue our work with Megan over the summer and into next fall.

Willy M.

Winston Salem, NC

I have been teaching piano for almost 20 years. I have taught classical, blues, jazz, country and gospel styles. I am well versed in traditional methods of piano study, but I also have a great deal of success in helping classically trained students learn how to play rock, blues and jazz styles.

About Willy

Willy has been teaching music for more than a decade, carrying on the tradition he learned when his father taught him piano as a youth. He is a multi-instrumentalist with a degree in music from Earlham College in historic Richmond, IN (the birthplace of recorded jazz, and home of 30s era Genette Records).

As a sound technician Willy gained valuable experience working at the world famous Tarry Town Music Hall near Sleepy Hollow, NY, where he worked with top notch touring bands like Blues Traveler, the Indigo Girls, Paul Shaffer, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the late, great Levon Helm. He al
so worked with A-list actors such as Stanley Tucci, James Cahn, Kevin Bacon and Keanu Reeves.

While living in Austin, TX, Willy was a member of the American Federation of Musicians alongside greats like Los Lonely Boys, George Straight, Lyle Lovett and Willie Nelson.

As a father of four young children, Willy teaches in a family friendly environment. At the SIW events, he has taught elementary students as well as adults all the way up to 86 years old! Willy is a background checked teacher and would love to pass on his knowledge of music to you and your family!

Mandolin · In studio
I wasn't really taking mandolin, but fiddle in the Stringed Instrument Workshop, but I loved it. Willy is a great teacher. I especially enjoyed the SIW, with my kids. It was a lot of fun to learn musical techniques with lots of people of different skill levels. I'm not the best musician, but Willy makes you feel like you can participate even if you don't understand all of the theory.

The Stringed Instrument Workshop last year was really fun because almost everyone in the group won some different musical freebies from different music stores nearby. We had a cookout and a concert, and both of my children were able to perform in front of the class. Willy set up a stage, lights and a sound system for us all to feel like we were stars! It was such a fun time, and we even had hotdogs and marshmallows!

I loved the Stringed Instrument Workshop so much, I had him teach my kids private lessons too, and they love it.

Lisa O.

Greensboro, NC

I'm not here to make a performance major out of every student. I'm here to teach students to love to learn music with the natural talents they already have! If they love to learn this will carry on into every other subject that they need to learn! It's proven that playing music is the number one thing parents can involve their children in to help them become better thinkers.

About Lisa

After graduating from college with a degree in education I was determined to change the course of the education for my own family. I was the first on either side of my entire family (all generations) ever to go to a university and graduate. I came from very humble hard working (yes bullheaded Irish) people. As a naturally highly creative person the school system was not a nurturing place at all for me. As a deeply right brained visual person the left brained system was toxic for my creativity and I struggled to thrive and be myself.

For the past 21 years I've dedicated my time, energy
, creativity to home schooling my own two children in their academics as well as the necessary skills for every day life. Thankfully, I had the opportunity not to put either of them in day care one day. My focused sacrifice has been intense, serious, determined. planned, and obvious in my passion to educate them both in a left brain manor with a massive amount of creative liberty.

The ignorant, verbal, flack I encountered during this was insane but I didn't waver. I believe in one on one education customized for each child and knew from the start what I wanted to accomplish with both of them! I wanted them to learn how to learn with their personalities, natural strengths and talents but I had to observe and implement very different parenting and teaching techniques with both from birth.

Yes, my hard unwavering work has paid off and is continuing to pay off. Both of my children walked into their first college courses at age 14. Yes, real college classes on real college campuses! Both are honor students and my first will finish his degree in English Lit/Creative Writing at UNC Asheville in Dec 2016 at age 21!

Private piano lessons are nothing more than home schooling. I bring the same customized passion I used for my own children to teach yours! Not only do I have an education degree I have a proven track record of teaching children how they uniquely need to learn whether it's visually, audio, or kinetically etc. I know how to challenge them and make them work...even the super smart lazy ones!

After each lesson I take a few moments to consult the parent(s) about the lesson and what needs to be accomplished during the students next practice week. You need to be aware of their education because they grow rapidly and there is much to accomplish before they attend college! Do some research on the benefits of learning and playing music if you are not a musician yourself. It's incredible what it will do for the development of their brain little brains!

Apparently, I'm not allowed my customary studio "meet and greet" with Takelessons. I have studio rules that must be followed and if they aren't I will not continue to teach your children. You must have a piano or keyboard for them to regularly practice on and believe me I know when they don't practice. I know what method books I like to teach from so I'll be happy to share that information with you. If you don't have any I cannot start the lessons without them. They must be purchased before hand.
There are other rules so please message me first so that we can discuss them first so that there is no confusion about the studio policies. This isn't a hobby this is serious valuable education for your child.

I don't have the time nor the energy to deal with unprofessional parents because my time and energy goes fully towards teaching amazing students.

At this time I've been pre-approved, by the head of arts education in Guilford County, to teach music education and chorale education in the Guilford County School system. I'm waiting for openings and interviews. My time educating my own children is over with so I must move on to teach other incredible human beings!

I look forward to passionately educating you or... those you love!

Lisa is an amazing piano instructor. She has taught my 6 year old daughter since she was 4 years old and my daughter has learned so much. Lisa is very professional, nurturing, and loving. My daughter loves her and can't wait to come to her lessons each week. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for a piano instructor.

Derek A.

Winston Salem, NC

I have been teaching since 2005. My beginner students walk away from their first lesson knowing how to play a song (from Mozart to Modern), and my intermediate students get a breath of fresh air with my unique perspective as a composer. Our lessons can be as simple or as in-depth as you prefer each session to be. Every aspect of performance and practice is on the table and available for discussion and application. I want you to be you! My job is to bring you music on a silver platter.

About Derek

Hello my fellow musicians! My name is Derek Arnold and I'm very much looking forward to working with you to develop and enhance your musical skills, talents, and abilities. The first thing you should know is that music should be FUN!!! Every part of it. I have been practicing and performing professionally for 18 years now, and I still love every minute of it! My goal is not only to help you shape your musical abilities, but also to give you insight into how to ensure that your musical experiences are always positive ones. I am currently a Graduate Student at the University of North Carol
ina School of the Arts conservatory majoring in Music Composition. I graduated from UNCSA with my Bachelor of Music degree in 2016 at the age of 33, also as a Music Composition major. Throughout my travels and experiences touring and recording in the US and Canada, as well as studying in North Carolina, I have honed the tools necessary to create a rewarding musical experience every time!
