James H.

Wentzville, MO

About James

My name is James, and I love music. Music is my "aeroplane". It's the window to my world. Everything I do involves music: learning it, playing it, listening to it, creating it, studying it. I think it is safe to say that music is my life's passion. If you have a passion for music, or even just a curiosity, I'd love to be the one to help you explore the magical world of music!

I've been playing for about 20 years now, and I've had almost every experience that one can have playing the piano: playing at a high competition level, public performances, both solo and ensemble, lots of private inst
ruction. My personal training is in classical piano, however I believe that all genres possess the potential to be an instrument of learning and enjoyment, AT THE SAME TIME! And I'd love to show you how!

Recently, I completed my sophomore leve classes at a local college studying music under a wonderful and passionate professor. This experience has only helped to solidify my love of musical arts. During my freshman year of studies, I was awarded Music Student of the Year (2008-2009) by the head of the music department on my campus. And I have completed my associate level music requirements at the end of spring term 2010. Ever since, I have been building my student base and honing my teaching skills.

*** Lesson Details ***
Come to lessons curious.
Come wanting to learn.
Come to lessons wanting to know more.
And you'll find what you're looking for!
You'll also find that I am a very easy going person. I understand that, sometimes, practice can be tedious. My goal is to make every aspect of your learning experience enjoyable, from discovering new music, to learning the music you already love, to cementing your skills in learning and self education. I hope you leave lessons loving music as much as I do.

*** Studio Equipment ***
A designated music room with an upright piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide piano/electric piano.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.My own personal history includes mainly classical piano music and technique, but I also enjoy contemporary piano pieces.

James has been a real inspiration to me in playing the piano. I had been playing the piano over 30 years when I started lessons with him. He has helped me to become more expressive, to create medleys and arrangements, and to modulate to other keys and key signatures. I have gained more of an appreciation for different musical styles and have progressed further than I ever imagined. I highly recommend him as a patient and knowledgeable teacher.

Best teacher ever!

James has been great with Jesse. Over the years, he has tailored the lessons to meet Jesse's needs and interests and always keeps it fun. We appreciate how he comes to our house at a time that we all agree on and we can count on him to be here. Thanks James!

Eric B.

O Fallon, MO

About Eric

My lesson times are constantly changing, so please contact me for availability information! Every genre and skill level of guitar lessons. As one of the top rated music instructors in the area, I help students to learn what they love, but learn to do it with the skill, speed, and FUN that comes along with taking lessons from an expert teacher!

"My children have been taking lessons from Eric for about 9 months now. He is a wonderful teacher with load of patience and a knack for making the lessons fun and enjoyable but also productive. He is honest with the students and tells them exactly wh
at they need to improve on but also praises their accomplishments, which is a great balance to find in a teacher."
-Michelle H.

"My 8 year old has only been taking lessons for about a month, but we are very happy with Mr. Eric. He's very knowledgeable, and he's great with kids. My daughter loves going to her lessons. Eric updates me on the progress made each week. He is easy to get a hold of and flexible with make-ups."
-Amanda B.

"My son started guitar with Eric several months ago and has loved it ever since. He has learned a great deal, increased his confidence and is having so much fun. Eric is a patient and positive teacher. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone!"
-Amanda S.

"We have been very pleased at the progress our daughter has made since she has been taking lessons from Eric. She is always ready to work hard so that she can learn something new at the next lesson."
-Sarah C.

"Our son has been taking drum lessons from Eric for almost a year now at the recommendation of our neighbor (whose sons take piano and guitar). We could not be happier!!! School is somewhat of a struggle for our son, but music is something he enjoys and gives him confidence. Eric works wonderfully with Aaron. He is encouraging, positive, patient, professional and hugely talented. We would recommend Eric to ANYONE looking for a music instructor!"
-Pam N.

"My 16 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Eric for over a year. Not only has she learned how to play the acoustic guitar, but she has learned a TON about music and has developed a great relationship with Eric. He is patient, funny, personable, and kind. Even if my daughter "masters" the art of playing guitar, I'm sure she will continue to attend weekly lessons with Eric for the all around music knowledge and playing experience she gleans from her time with him. We <3 Eric!!!!!"
-Shannon G.

"My 6 year old son has been taking guitar lessons from Eric for almost two months now, and he loves it! Eric is good with kids, he is very encouraging, and my son always has a huge smile on his face when he is done. He was playing his first song within just a few lessons! Deacon and I highly recommend Eric for music lessons!"
-Shelby M.

"Our daughter has been taking lessons from Eric for about 6 weeks....so far she really likes it and has learned a lot."

Leslie R.

O Fallon, MO

About Leslie

Hello, Everyone! Wishing you a Happy Holidays!!!

My name is Leslie. I come from a strong musical background of various instruments, lessons, and family support. I began playing piano when I was five years old, which continued throughout high school and my first college experience. In addition to piano, I was trained in voice and French horn, beginning in high school, and recently started learning guitar.

I began teaching piano in 2000 and found it to be a great experience. I thoroughly enjoy being able to show others the joys of not only playing the piano, but conquering an instrume
nt that is often seen as intimidating! I have had several students over the past 15 years, and I would be glad to provide references if you would like.

I received a Bachelor's in Music Business/Business Administration from Millikin University, Decatur, IL in 2006. I realized that music business was not the profession for me, and recently chose to go back to school. I am now currently working on my Bachelor's in Music Therapy at Maryville University here in St. Louis. I am so excited to embark on this new career path! Music is my whole life, and using it as a tool to teach not only musical goals but non-musical goals as well seems like a dream come true!

Music is one of the most important things in my life. I fully stand behind the notion that we need it everyday to survive. It is an honor to teach young minds the importance and appreciation that I have for the process, the technique, the musicality, and the emotional support involved in playing. I also try to make if fun for the students as well!

Thank you for taking your time to read my bio! I hope you find a great teacher to fulfill your requirements!

I have known Vinnie for quite a few years now and have gotten to jam with him a couple times at the music shop he used to work at. Not only is he an incredible player, but an amazing teacher as well. If you are looking to learn theory, phrasing, or just fun riffs to jam to, this is the only teacher you will need.
