About Sharyn
I believe with Mercier that "what we learn with pleasure, we never forget". Thus, I strive to keep my lessons fun, so the student will be on the road to a lifelong love of playing the piano. Our recitals are designed to give you or your child a chance to experience the joy of playing for others, and showcasing your skills. I have been teaching for over 19 years, from children to folks in a nursing home.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a beautiful Roland Digital Piano that is equipped with a computer to aid in learning. There are games and skill tests that keep the younger students engaged, and the more advanced players working on their technique.

*** Specialties ***
My students often compliment me on my patience. This seems to be especially helpful to the younger students, and older beginners.

I also teach what the
student wants (or needs) to learn; if it's the ability to read notes and be able to eventually play anything that is put in front of them, or just to interpret chord symbols and read lead sheets for playing in church ASAP.

I have taken students to the Recital tryouts at Texas A & M Commerce, where 2/3 of them were accepted to play for that special event. Our own recitals are in the Spring and Winter, and showcase the student's talents for friends and family.

Memory work is encouraged, but not required.

About Trevor
My name is Trevor Murphy. I am 24 years old and have been teaching music lessons for 4 years. I completed my Bachelor’s of Music – Jazz Studies from San Jose State University in 2017. I have been a member of the International Society of Bassists since 2012 and achieved my Eagle Scout Rank in 2011. I have 14 years of performance experience and specialize in Double Bass Performance and Music Theory as my main focuses. I also offer lessons in guitar, piano, trumpet, electric bass, and upright bass. I enjoy working with motivated students of all ages and backgrounds who are passionate about music and want to develop a great work ethic and sense of self-discipline, while having fun in what they do. It’s more than just music – It’s about combining what’s in your heart with what’s on the page and truly expressing the music. Additionally, I will
go into detail on the secrets of overcoming fear and performance anxiety when playing for audiences. The inner game of music is about overcoming self-limiting beliefs. Become brilliant. Become fearless. Become the most confident version of yourself through music. Learn a higher level of musicianship and book with me today!

I was looking for an upright bass teacher and found Trevor on Takelessons.
After we got through the maze of takelessons website ( a real issue that needs to be resolved. How can you know if a teacher is right for you without communicating with them Takelessons?) we were able to discuss what my interests and goals were. Trevor understood I was new to double bass, but had some experience on electric bass and was able to put together a lesson plan that helped me progress rapidly while still keeping the lessons interesting and fun.
I asked Trevor to help me with bowing, classical and Jazz improv. Each lesson contained time for each and I was sent home with practice pieces on each of the disciplines. My zeal for learning "everything" may have been a bit unrealistic, but Trevor made sure to spend time with me on each area and worked on correcting anything he saw come up that was not correct form.
Trevor has an easy going style, but shows a great love for music.

About Don
Hi!

My name is Don. I am excited that you have chosen to review my sport performance coaching experience and qualifications. I am equally honored that you are considering working with me to improve your own sport performance and enjoyment.

I am a sport, exercise, and performance coach. Although evidence-based applied sport psychology is the primary emphasis in the services I provide, I am also competent, experienced, and excited to provide sport-specific skills training, evidence-based physical training, and evidence-based performance coaching services to athletes, coaches, teams, and parents from a wide variety of sports and sport populations. A unique combination of art and science is an important part of my service delivery framework.

Whether we work on the mental, sport-specific, physical, or performance parts of your
sport, the opportunity to work closely with an individual player, coach or team to help them succeed and enjoy their sport performance and lives more fully is something I consider to be very special and a privilege.

A few of the sports where I have been successful in helping players, coaches, teams, parents of athletes, and others include baseball, bicycle racing, high school cross country and track, high school diving, diving, motocross, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, tennis, and ski racing.

A few things about me. I live in Arvada, Colorado, I am married, and we have two boys. I first experienced the joy of sport as a very young person, and that joy and passion is still with me today. As an athlete I have trained and competed in a variety of sports throughout my life including baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and ski racing. In addition, I raced motocross for over 10 years. Currently, I compete in racing road bicycles. However, it is with the sport of baseball that I have the most experience, both as a player and coach.

My baseball coaching experience includes competitive youth baseball (Pomona Mudcats, Record: 154-66, three World Series appearances and ten major tournament wins), high school junior varsity and varsity baseball (Colorado 5A State Champions), and college baseball (Regis University NCAA Division II). In all three of these programs I was involved with in- and out-of season strength and conditioning. In addition, I was instrumental in designing and teaching mental skills programs.

In addition to significant baseball coaching experience, I am a former Certified Level 3 USA Cycling Coach (and current competitive road racing cyclist). Not only have I safely and effectively increased the muscular strength, aerobic and anaerobic endurance, and speed of cycling athlete-clients, but I have successfully helped cyclists with the mental aspect of training and racing bicycles.

My education includes a Bachelor of Science in Biology, with minors in kinesiology (exercise science) and psychology. I have a recent master’s degree in sport psychology, where my master’s degree thesis examined the sources and types of sport-confidence in a sample of recreational and competitive youth baseball players. Lastly, I am currently enrolled in a PhD program in General Psychology, with a continued focus on sport and performance psychology.

While I am competent and comfortable working with athletes of both genders, athletes of all ages and abilities, and culturally diverse athletes, my primary area of research interest is with youth and high school age student-athletes. As such, my doctoral thesis will likely address a topic within this important sport population.

Please see my Profile for additional educational achievements.

The opportunity to work closely with you to provide sport performance coaching services falls under four areas: applied sport psychology (mental skills), sport-specific skills training, physical training, and life performance coaching. In our work together, we can focus on any one or all of these areas. It is up to you and what you would like to accomplish.

As an athlete do you have doubts about your sport performance before or during competition? Do you perform better in practice than in games? Do you feel so nervous before or during a game that you don't play as well as you could? Do you lose focus during critical times of the game? As a coach do recognize these things in your players or yourself? Parents, do you notice some of these signs in your son or daughter?

If you answered 'Yes' to one or more of these questions, then the applied sport psychology, mental skills, or psychological readiness training that we can work together on will likely provide some help toward playing or coaching at a higher performance level and with more joy and passion.

Most athletes, coaches, and parents of athletes recognize the importance of the mental game in sport. Surprisingly, many mistakenly consider the state of their mind and behavior to be a random performance factor over which they have little control.

However, as we work together on sport psychology approaches to developing the mental aspects of training and competition, I am confident you can consistently achieve your best performances by being psychologically ready to compete.

Some of the mental aspects we can work together on include mental toughness, self-confidence, motivation, focus, imagery, self-talk, coach- and parent- created motivational climate, coach-player relationship, and parent-athlete relationship.

Aside from the mental aspects, addressing the physical aspects means we can work on helping you get stronger, faster, quicker, and more agile for your specific sport.

For the skills training part, we can work to improve the exact skills that are used in your sport, such as pitching, hitting, or fielding.

Finally, if you want to work together on the life performance area, we can address those other things that are part of your life in and outside of sport.

Importantly, the evidence-based performance coaching we can work together on will help you see future possibilities, expand past your limitations, and become a stronger, more alive individual. After all, my goal is to for us to work together so that you get better and become happier and more successful in what you do in your sport and in what you do with your life. Further, it is my belief that it is just as important to develop the whole person as it is to develop sport performance enhancement and athletic excellence.

Whether you are a player, coach, or parent of an athlete, and regardless of the area or areas you decide are most important, my coaching approach is an athlete, coach, and team-centered approach.

This means I am committed to your positive sport performance growth and development. This person-centered approach also means that I recognize that you are the expert in your sport, and I need to take the time to learn about your sport from your perspective. Too, it means that the working relationship between you and I is the most important thing needed for your success. Finally, trust, rapport, genuineness, and a belief in you as a unique, valuable, and highly functioning person defines my athlete, coach, and team-centered approach. This approach makes it much more fun, personal and rewarding for everyone involved!

Thank you for letting me tell you a little about myself, my experiences, my passions, my approaches, and some of my story. Due to my playing, coaching, and educational experiences, I am able to competently and ethically provide sport performance coaching to a wide variety of individuals- male, female, young, older, beginner, elite, coach, team, culturally diverse- from a wide variety of different sports and performance environments.

I look forward to a collaborative and engaging working relationship, one that will enable you grow, get better, and become happier and more successful in what you do in your sport and in what you do with your life.

Best wishes.
Don

About Sara
Hi! My name is Sara and I'm a college student attending Brigham Young University in Provo. I love learning and getting to experience lots of different things! My favorite things are people and music, and for that reason I am currently studying as a sociology major with the intent to work in nonprofit helping children after I graduate! I currently work at BYU as a Peer Mentor where I meet one-on-one with first year college students to assist them in developing time management skills, effective study strategies, and test-prep skills. I worked at a daycare for a year where I ran a homework club for the elementary school students enrolled in the daycare. I've also assisted in creating and carrying out a homeschool curriculum for my 4 special needs siblings over the last few years. I have had lots of opportunities to work with youth while I've
been in various leadership positions and, like I mentioned before, I love people! And I'm excited to get to know each of you!
