Michael H.

Dayton, OH

About Michael

My name is Mike and I operate out of the Dayton, OH area. I have 11 years experience teaching music in public schools and would love to have you study with me. I am a percussionist by nature, and that's where my expertise lies, but I am able to help out beginning to intermediate guitarists and pianists. I believe strongly in crafting well-rounded students and would love to have the opportunity to work with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm pretty laid back but I expect dedication to the craft. Outside practice is essential, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. Music is to be enjoyed and s
o should the learning process. In the end, I'm all about helping the student reach his or her personal goals and will structure the lessons to guarantee success with that.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The in-studio lessons are in the basement studio which includes 2 drum sets, hand percussion instruments, audio workstation with pro-tools, and a vocal booth for voice lessons. There is an upright piano in upstairs living room as well as several guitars. Some seating available. 1 cat in the home which could be in a separate room and is never in the basement area. Parking in the driveway or street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide any supplemental materials, music excerpts, digital recordings, whatever is needed to enhance a lesson. I expect the student to provide all their own instruments, primary resources and accessories.

*** Specialties ***
Percussion-rudimentary, orchestral and marching, drum set in various genres including jazz,fusion,rock,funk, some world.

Highly skilled at working with K-12 students

Music is my passion because it is international communication. It ministers to my soul and spirit.

I measure your success by how well you practice using the techniques I give you, I also measure progress according to how many times a week you practice, I am committed to inspire people of all ages and skill levels to learn more about music. I believe that music for every individual should be a pleasurable learning experience. Whether you are a beginner or advanced musician or vocalist. I welcome all students of all ages encouraging them. I like to motivate all students to succeed.

My son's review of her is, "She is the best teacher ever!"

Renee is very knowledgeable, but also has the God given gift of teaching. She truly pulls the best out of my son. His diligence and focus are growing, right along side of his piano skills. We could not recommend her more highly.

Victor K.

Cincinnati, OH

About Victor

I received my Bachelor of Music Degree in Organ Performance from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in June of 2010, studying under Dr. Roberta Gary. I have completed all the coursework for the Master of Music Degree in Organ Performance. I will receive the degree in late 2014 or early 2015 after performing one more solo recital.

I began playing the piano at the age of 5, later moving to the organ at 9. I have held a church job since then, working in multiple different denominations and settings. I have a strong background of piano, accompanying, theory, sacred liturgy, and m
usical performance. I enjoy studying and listening to many genres of music as well as performing them. I am very interested in historically informed performance and understanding different techniques as they are related to the composition style of different time periods.

I enjoy working with students of all ages. Regardless of your ability, age, or experience, I will work with you. We can work out a plan for lesson times, intensity of practice and work, and tailor the lesson to the right pace for you.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons tend to be tailored to the needs of individual students. I am not as much a fan of a strict curriculum that I use on each student. For beginners, one can expect to be given method books to get them moving in the right direction. As one advances, we eventually move on to repertoire. I take an approach to lessons that emphasizes total body awareness and high level mental awareness. The most important thing anyone can learn in music is that it isn't just about the right notes; it isn't about the right rhythm. It is about the complete musicianship and the complete awareness needed to truly understand and perform a work of music. In order to make this approach work, my strictness as a teacher varies depending on the level of devotion the student is willing to put forth. After six months with me as a teacher, expect to notice changes in the way you see music and comprehend your technique at the keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to purchase their own music. For beginners with method books, I have these available to the students to purchase from me.

*** Specialties ***
I am very highly trained in performance practices of the Baroque era, especially on the organ. I am also very specialized in body movement and efficient keyboard technique. I also have a lot of experience in the Romantic repertoire of the piano. Lastly, I am also well trained as an accompanist on both the organ and the piano.

Kerry certainly has the experience, both in teaching and performing. When someone like Kerry teaches, he brings both his knowledge from his degrees, and his experience from performing. Working with Kerry, I know for a fact that not only is he talented, but he is professional all the way, and takes his work very seriously. You will not be disappointed if you choose to hire Kerry!
