Cole T. Saint Paul, MN

About Cole

Music lessons are meant to help the student grow in more than just competence in their instrument. They build personal confidence, social skills, and a love for the arts. With my ability to teach piano, vocals and guitar, your student has my experience to tap into as they grow as a musician. I have been performing professionally for churches, theaters, and restaurants since the age of 16, applying my education and training in the music industry. Growing up, I took piano lessons from ages 5 - 18, then went on to continue my passion for music by taking music composition and theory courses. This allows me to link piano, guitar and voice together in and out of lessons. You, and your student, have everything to gain from hiring me as a teacher! *** Lesson Details *** I teach piano by the ...

Shae K. Saint Paul, MN

About Shae

I am an music instructor with 23 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 33 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn piano and improve their vocal abilities! I also know that a knowledge of music and music theory go together to improve one's learning ability in any area of his/her life. The student and I would work together. I don't just teach the "how to", I help and encourage taking time at the lesson to learn and understand the music. I am a huge advocate of building the student's skills during the lesson time and using the rest of the week on their own to continue to review the skills they have already ...

Mary S. Saint Paul, MN

About Mary

I began taking piano lessons on a whim in middle school, but it didn't take long before I realized I was completely in love with music. I enjoy playing and teaching many types of music, from classical to rock to hymns and church music. I learned to play by ear at the same time I learned to sight read, and both approaches have helped me to learn and enjoy the music I play. I graduated in December 2010 with a BA in Music Performance from North Central University, here in the Twin Cities. I have been teaching piano lessons for the last 6 years, as well as directing a children's choir. Watching other people learn to play music is one of the greatest rewards I've received. *** Lesson Details *** I believe music has incredible educational value, but I also believe that it should ...

Mary is a stellar piano teacher. She is so creative in her techniques in helping kids to learn and enjoy playing music. She makes playing piano fun for my son-he even asks if he can practice! I work in the early childhood education field and am so impressed with Mary's skills working with my 6 year. She is a natural!

Mary has inspired my daughter Joanne to want to play piano. She has a way of balancing what the kids like to play and what the parents want in a music lesson for their kids. Joanne has not lost interest like we thought she might, but has wanted to Accelerate learning piano. She gets them playing music right away and then little by little explains more and more about music itself. It is an all-around winning strategy, especially when teaching kids.
Thank Mary

I am eager to teach as well as continue my own personal journey as a musician. Initially self-taught, I attended McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul, MN where I earned a degree in Bass Performance studying under Terry Burns, Gary Raynor, Jay Young, Jeff Bailey, and Charles Fletcher. I have been performing professionally in various original and cover/variety/wedding bands for over 6 years. I also have extensive studio performance experience constructing and recording bass lines of many different styles. My band, The Fontanelles, have been successfully writing, recording, and performing original music in the Twin Cities for the last three years.

I am very happy to have selected Colin as my drum teacher. He is patient and explains concepts clearly. I find that he provides helpful feedback identifying both what I am doing correctly and where I need to adjust. He adjusts the lessons to my progress, so I feel that I am receiving individualized instruction. I am a long time educator and know good instruction when I see it, and I see it in him!

Colin has been a great inspiration in my son's playing. It has brought a level of creativity and improvisation that he just wasn't learning from other teachers. He truly cares about his students and has a positive energy that helps motivate my son to be a better player. Colin has the chops and spectacular sense of timing and song memory. I would recommend Colin to students of all age and ability levels.
