Lynzi H.

Glendale, AZ

Music Performance is key when it comes to being a great singer or musician. The key is to keep the audience engaged. I will teach you how to do this as I have many years of performing experience on stage. Whether you want to audition for a school play, be in a band, whatever your goal, I will work with you to accomplish and attain them.

About Lynzi

Hello everyone! I've been singing since the age of 3 and performing since the age of 6. I am not only an experienced music teacher with a passion for music and teaching, but an experienced performer, and songwriter. I started performing at a young age with the Columbia School of Theatrical Arts, and as I grew older I studied different techniques such as speech level singing, classical, and even techniques from Brett Manning, one of the most amazing vocal coaches today who teaches artists such as Haley Williams from Paramore. I have experience performing many styles of music, and also was a voi
ce major in college. The students I teach will benefit from my contemporary techniques, and can learn to sing in almost any style of music they choose.

*** Lesson Details ***
Do you want to learn how to sing your favorite song just like the artist? I can teach you the techniques! Or how about how to make a cover song your own based off of your own unique voice? We can work together to find, develop, and build the amazing qualities that you have in your voice. I will not only work on aspects of what you would like to improve on with your voice personally, but I will make an individual plan for you that will dramatically improve your voice! I will work with you individually to strengthen any weakness you may have in a fun environment. I am fun, encouraging and motivating! When asking students to do any vocal exercises, I will explain what the certain exercise does to improve your voice so that you can have the knowledge you need to be a good vocalist, and not just know how to sing properly. You will learn many things in lessons and what I teach you will vary on where you are vocally.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard, CD, Boom box, music sheets, etc. Students do not need to provide anything.

*** Specialties ***
Speech level singing method, classical techniques, singing success, various genres including: pop, blues, contemporary, and musical theatre. I utilize the different techniques I have learned through proper classical training, but mix it with contemporary methods I have learned from speech level singing methods.

Lynzi spent enough time to get to know me and understand what I hoped to get from taking singing and piano lessons. We made a plan for the future, and got started right away. Since I am taking both piano and voice, I feel I may need to go to 60 minute lessons in the future.

Henri B.

Phoenix, AZ

Specializing in all types of stage performance coaching and development.

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 yea
rs of experience touring both nationally and internationally with several award-winning Arizona-based performing groups (Dry River Yacht Club, decker., and The SunPunchers are the current projects), performing shows in 39 of the US States, as well as festival performances in 2012 in Canada (NXNE w/Flaming Lips, Raekwon, Of Montreal, Bad Religion) and Norway (Slottsfjell Music Festival w/New Order, Janalle Monae, Wolfmother, A-Trak, etc.) 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 an Adjunct Faculty in the Music and Business program, where he currently teaches MUC109 - Merchandising and the Law, and MUC210 - Concert and Touring Promotions. 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, or percussion 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 book work, 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 and 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. They will have learned proper form and technique, warm-up/skill-building exercises, to read basic notation, basic rhythms/rudiments. Guitar 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 musician! Remember, "practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent."

*** Studio Equipment ***
Ludwig Accent Drum Kit, Pearl Rhythm Traveller Kit, LP Assorted Percussions, Protools LE, Logic Pro, Korg Electribe, Reason 3.0, Harmony Guitar, Ion Electronic Drum Set, Chord Charts, Acoustic and Electric Guitars.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide drum sticks, guitar, all developmental material for students to retain and practice with, and a Pearl Traveler's Drum Kit if necessary. I can also provide percussion instruments.

I expect my students to be providing the necessary musical equipment as well (guitars, drum kits, percussion instruments) 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.

For drum students, along with learning drum beats, students will also engage in drum tuning, reading drum notation, drum tab, warm-up/skill-building exercises, and internal hearing.

For guitar students, we will engage in guitar tuning, warm-up/skill building exercises, reading sheet music, reading TAB, notes on the guitar, chords, and student chosen songs, among other activities.

Aside from drums/percussion and guitar, 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; 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; and 4) Understand and effectively utilize music production programs.

Drum · In studio
Taking drum lessons with Henri has improved my sound incredibly. Henri does more then improve my chops technically, Henri has taught me how to play musically. Henri set me free on the drums, teaching me how to breathe while I play and to hit with confidence. My friends and family have been commenting on how great I sound on the drums lately. It is awesome. I highly recommend taking drum lessons with Henri.

Henri is an awesome teacher and mentor. He has the patience to teach drum by ear and repetition. He has taught me not only to play rhythms but also great songs that I can relate to. Henri has taught me to continue to strive to do my best not only in music but in my personal life. I drive 50 mile round trip in order to have Henri as my teacher. Some day I hope I can play as well as Henri. Robbie

David A.

Goodyear, AZ

I instruct in how to perform music in front of an audience.

About David

I am a pianist, guitarist, singer and songwriter. Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, I studied classical and jazz piano with Carole Neal, and classical and jazz guitar with Hank Bryant. I have won one Washington Area Music Award for an original instrumental composition. I have performed with numerous and varied musical situations, including The University of Maryland Jazz Orchestra, Pavement Chasers Tribute to Adele, Elvis Aaron Presley Jr., and my own original group “LUMA”, which performed at venues all over the Washington, D.C. area. In 1999, I received a Certificate of Au
dio Engineering from The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in Tempe, Arizona. I then produced and performed as a studio musician on a variety of regional and national projects, including radio advertisements for The United Way, Chevrolet, and Pringles. In 2000, I produced, performed, and co-engineered on a recording of my own original music entitled “A & LILL”. I have extensive background and experience in rock, jazz, blues, classical and country musical styles. I currently perform as a freelance keyboardist and guitarist in the Phoenix metro area. In addition to teaching, my other musical passion is writing and performing my original music. I am published through Big Fish Music Publishing Group. With many years of experience teaching students of all ages, I am confident that I can provide lessons that combine both the necessary instruction in theory and technique with the fun and enjoyment of learning new songs! I am able to find out where each student wants to go in his or her musical adventure, and tailor a lesson plan based upon those needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a teaching style which is informative and fun at the same time! I do typically use method books for piano and guitar lessons, as well as handouts which I provide. After a certain period of time, usually within 6 months, my students have a solid foundation in theory (scales, chords, etc.) and technique, and are usually on their way to playing songs. I encourage students to let me know what songs they are interested in learning! We learn music through both reading and by ear. I am very patient and I believe in repetition so that my students fully understand the music that they are working on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Front room w/ grand piano, f/w keyboard, guitars, amps, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
For my students, I incorporate a method involving a logical way to learn what the notes are on their instrument. My method involves a combination of music theory and hands on participation. I systematically expose them to theory in order to help them understand what is behind the exercises and songs that they are playing. I use both method books and my own supplemental handouts to enhance their learning experience. I also help students to learn music from audio recordings. I teach jazz, rock, pop, blues, country, and classical music styles.

David is a very good guitar player and is very knowledgeable about music and the guitar. I have advanced my playing skill to my satisfaction while taking lessons from David. It does take a lot of practice and dedication on the students part to learn to play the acoustic guitar, but well worth it.

David has been extremely helpful to me as a beginner. He is very patient and fun to learn from. He taught me everything from note reading to the Circle of Fifths. As a teacher, he encourages me to push through and not to give up. I'm excited to keep learning from him as our journey continues.

Jeffrey O.

Phoenix, AZ

I do not understand the significance of this category since this subject should be taught in any music lesson. However, as a doctoral music student, I have a fine ear for musicianship. Whatever your instrument is, I can help you interpret music and perform it better whatever your goals may be.

About Jeffrey

I currently teach over 30 students ages 4-75 piano, flute, saxophone, clarinet, recorder, and singing. This is my full time job, this is not a side hobby to make extra cash. I am a professional teacher with a big schedule and flexibility. I do not travel, students come to my home.

I have taught general music K-8 in a charter school and basically had to build a music program with no funding and almost no supplies. I left this job in favor of teaching privately because the staff and administration were horribly disrespectful and unappreciative of what I did for t
heir school. Teaching privately allows me to teach music passionately without limits (and without administration who know nothing about music telling me what to do!). I can also focus on one student at a time, rather than try to manage an entire class.

I have taught private lessons for about 13 years. These have mostly been clarinet lessons because that is my primary instrument, but in the last three years, I've expanded what I can teach. At one time, I was teaching several high school students music composition, music theory, and ear training to prepare for college entrance as music composition majors. One of them did get into the Juilliard school and was actually placed in advanced classes because of the theory and ear training work I did with him. I've also taught one of my flute students for years, starting her at an early age first on recorder, switching to fife, and then on to flute. I currently teach several students from 4 yrs old-adult various levels flute, clarinet, and piano.

I have been a music theory/ear training TA at ASU for four years. I can definitely prepare anyone for college level music academics. Most high school band programs do not prepare students for the academic side of music study in college.

Clarinet: All ages (starting 4th/5th grade) and levels
Flute: All ages (starting 3rd/4th grade with fife), beginner to high school level
Piano: All ages (starting at age 4-5) and levels
Recorder: All ages (starting 2nd grade) and levels
Trumpet: All ages (starting 5th grade) beginning only
French Horn: All ages (starting 5th grade) beginning only
Music Theory/Ear Training: recommended for HS students looking for intensive music study in college
Music Composition: recommended for HS students or adults who want to write music, or pursue music composition in college

I love music, and I enjoy passing my passion and knowledge on to others. Watching a student, grow, explore, and enjoy music is a great reward. Music gave me a voice to express myself, and a creative outlet, and I want others to have the same opportunity. I also enjoy the social interaction with students.

I have a lot to offer students (check out my specialties). A school music teacher or band director doesn't have the time to give one-on-one attention. Nor do they have the chance to go deeper into music with students. I will help you find music that you like at your level, and I will also teach you how to practice and correct bad habits.

I teach in the music room of my house, which is clean and cozy. If you are a parent, my couch in the living room is a comfortable place to wait during the lesson, or you may sit outside on the porch (weather permitting). I live in a safe neighborhood close to downtown Phoenix.

I am a firm believer in the humanistic approach to learning. I want to teach you what you want to learn, the way you learn best, doing activities that keep you engaged and add growth as a musician. Come to me with your questions, curiosities, and requests for what you want to learn ("How do I play two notes at the same time on the clarinet?" "What is this key for?" "I really want to play Sleigh Ride"). Please bring in any musical goals you may have for yourself. I incorporate meaningful scales and exercises that apply to the music that you are working on (they are not chosen at random). Conducting, ear training, music theory, and music composition are all incorporated into lessons over time (depending on the student's interest). I am aware of the state standards (they are my instinct anyway), but I ultimately analyze your interests and abilities and follow your lead, acting as your guide along the way. My teaching and activities are age appropriate.

If you are interested in music composition lessons, I give advice on your work, give ideas to continue your music, educate you on instrument capabilities, help with orchestration, open your ears to music by others, teach theory/counterpoint/form, give you advice on how to get your music performed, help you use Sibelius software, and help prepare a college portfolio if you are pursuing music composition in college.

~2 different toy pianos (Schoenhut and J. Chein)
~88key Yamaha digital grand piano
~Macbook computer with Sibelius 6 (for writing music)
~Music for Little Mozarts starter pack with the cute puppets and music board (for young beginners on piano)
~Music stand, clarinet stand
~Log Drum

If your child is showing interest in music at an early age, I can start as early as age 4 on piano. I use the "Music for Little Mozarts" series that come with cute little puppets, and the storybook lesson style is perfect. I also have 2 nice toy pianos that can be incorporated into the lesson. If your child wants to play a wind instrument at an early age, I start them on recorder at about age 7. I can then switch them over to fife (a smaller simpler flute) in a year or so, and then to flute -or- they can go from recorder to clarinet at about 4th or 5th grade.

If taking lessons on a wind instrument, I teach conducting patterns and techniques so the student learns how to follow a conductor and what it means to lead musicians visually without speaking. Musicians rely a fair amount on body language to communicate while playing together. I've also found that incorporating conducting makes lessons fun, and it improves the student's sense of rhythm and control.

Music is more than just breathing and moving fingers up and down. Great musicians understand music and have good listening skills. Knowing how music works (music theory) actually helps students recognize patterns and learn music faster (or spend less time practicing). Ear training helps with intonation and playing music with others (you'll sound better and notice more detail in music!). I do activities that are age and ability appropriate; most young students love listening games with their instrument.

For variety, I teach students how to use Sibelius (using my computer) to write music for their instrument. This encourages creativity, an awareness of how music works, and helps them learn technology. Plus, they get the pleasure of writing their own music and playing it! I print the music, and it looks like real published music!

I love thrift shopping, and I collect lots of music for my students. Some music is copied, and some music I sell at the great price I paid ($1 or less!). Music can be expensive, so I try to save you the time and money if possible. I only get used music in good condition.

Dr Jeff has been doing an amazing job with my 6 year old son. He listens to what my son has to say and really encourages him to learn the musical notes as well as how to play correctly. He is very encouraging and patient.

Dr Jeff's philosophy is really great for fostering a love of piano playing. We recently had to miss a piano lesson but were going to do something else that was fun as well. My son's reaction was, "Aw. That'll be fun, but I wanted to go to piano." In my opinion, very rare is the piano teacher who can encourage that enthusiasm!

Dr. Jeff has helped bring music back in my life. I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano and had been trying to teach myself because of my past experience (played trumpet from elementary school– 2 yrs of collage). Learning that way was not ideal though and I was really not progressing at all. I finally decided to start lessons and I can’t tell how grateful I am that I did. Dr. Jeff has helped me learn and practice correctly and I really feel that I am progressing well. I am having so much fun learning and playing.
