About Ken
I've been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school's guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I've gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master's degree. You might have heard my music before too if you've ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, Indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant.

Not everybody wants to be a rock star though, and there are many aspects to the world of music. During the course of my musical adventure I've played with orchestras, been in rock, bluegrass, reggae, pop and blues bands, classical ensembles and more. I have also had the opportunity to play for celebrities and diploma
ts. Basically I've done a little of everything and I believe that it is this diversity of experiences that makes me a better teacher. Having worked in so many settings gives me a broad understanding that I use to help you reach whatever goals you might have.

I have also become adept at writing, recording and producing music, studying under Frank Wright of the legendary rock band Chicago. If you have an interest in creating and/or recording music I can definitely help you get there! Check out my chill/downtempo instrumental album 'Night Music'.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach you about playing several different instruments, how to write, how to record your own music, and how to get your music career off the ground! As a youth, I was largely self-taught so my inspiration was always to have fun. I never had to deal with the 'homework' style of practicing so I've naturally incorporated that approach to my lessons. My goal is to keep you (the student) inspired and having fun. When that happens you will become good at your instrument and feel as though you 'played' your way to success! As your teacher I will also provide almost all of the materials for free and show you great free apps to help you along with your learning and keep costs to a minimum! I know we will have fun together while you learn and I look forward to meeting you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, piano/keyboard, drums, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele and a ProTools recording studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the learning materials but I expect the student to have their own instrument, be that a guitar, drum set, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Commercial music is definitely my specialty, but I am also capable of doing various styles such as classical, bluegrass, traditional/folk. Just focus on what you want to learn and I can teach it to you.

I have been taking banjo lessons from Ken for 5 months. As an adult learner, I was concerned about finding the right person to take lessons from, and Ken has been wonderful. He paces our lessons well so I don't feel too overwhelmed. He is proficient in the banjo and other instruments so I'm getting well-balanced instruction. He is also very flexible with my schedule and adapts our lessons based on my progress. Ken really does deserve all of these 5-star recommendations.

About Michelle
Classical performing and recording artist Michelle M. has openings for flute students of any level, from beginner to advanced. Michelle has performed worldwide as a soloist and chamber musician. As a teacher, she focuses on learning skills correctly from the beginning, with emphasis on good tone production and healthy body mechanics. She also works with high school students preparing college auditions, and has regular recital opportunities for all students.

"I love teaching private lessons. It's so much fun watching students grow musically and emotionally! My teaching style emphasizes learning CORRECTLY from the beginning, so that bad habits don't form, such as bad posture which can lead to pain down the road. I also pick music which the students know and enjoy, so that playing daily becomes a fun ritual for them.

"Learning mus
ical skills such as theory, composition and improvisation are also part of my teaching style. These things strengthen a student's overall musical knowledge and enjoyment. I also highly recommend that students listen and watch flute performances, either recordings or live concerts.

"Of course, the best part is playing, and I encourage all students to perform as much as possible, whether in my student recitals or in outside concerts. I offer many opportunities for performance, and help prepare students for their own band or orchestra concerts as well."

Michelle has a way of making music fun and enjoyable so that my daughter doesn't get bored or burnt out. Her teaching style is an amazing mix of both fun and effective so that my daughter comes away from her summer lessons with new skills beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Michelle!

Michelle has proven herself to be knowledgeable and helpful in facilitating my return to flute playing after a hiatus of a few years. As an individual having already completed a bachelors and masters degree in flute performance I was looking for someone nearby with the skill, education, and performance experience to help whip me back into shape. Michelle has been able to help me identify and strategize realistic performance goals that take into consideration both my extensive background and my need to re-enter music performance in a low-key way that balances my desire to use music as a creative outlet with having limited time as a parent and professional in a field outside of music. Michelle has given constructive feedback and guidance in using standard flute literature, etudes, and other technical exercises to facilitate me in regaining proper technique and tone production. It has also been a joy to play duets with Michelle and have the chance to practice intonation, musicality, and playing with a high quality musician, as music is meant to be played and shared with others. Having the opportunity to build musicianship in this way with an individual of her caliber has proven beneficial.

Paul does a great job of balancing the theoretical and applied. He focuses on developing strong fundamentals and good habits but also delves into songs that apply new skills learned along the way at the appropriate pace. As a beginner, Paul has helped me get off to a good start where I'm learning a lot but also having a lot of fun.

A big plus is that he's got a real down-to-earth personality that makes the lessons even more enjoyable and really interesting to talk to about all things drums and otherwise.

I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others. I studied with some of the best teachers in the world at Eastman, the Yale School of Music, the Paris Conservatoire, and the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, in addition to having attended some of the greatest festivals in the world to study with other great pianists and pedagogues. Teaching has always come naturally to me and has felt like a natural extension of my abilities as a performer. I believe it is a necessity to spread what I have learned through teaching.

About Stormie
Hello All!

Vocal lessons are about so much more than just learning to sing a scale correctly. When teaching I love to see my students gain self confidence, knowledge, passion and grow from where they started.

I enjoy all genres of music and love exploring many different vocal techniques to adapt to each genre and tune. My love for music stems from growing up in a musical family, my mother playing flute and my father being a vocalist and an actor. I started sing at 5 years old and began taking lessons myself at the age of 6 years old. Growing up I found that music has so many layers and while in college getting my degree in Social Science I also learned to compose music and work in sound design. Besides singing and teaching I also work for a music publishing company which keeps me update on the constant changing world of music.

I am so excited to connect with new students and share what I've learned on my musical journey!
