Zack H. Hazelwood, MO

About Zack

I've been playing trumpet for just about 15 years. I studied trumpet at a college level at Lindenwood University, and have held top positions in the university's music ensembles, in spite of not being a music major. I will be graduating with my degree in Chemistry in 2013. Outside of college, I play professionally with several groups, and sub in other ensembles whenever I can. I have the most fun playing trumpet when I get to play higher and louder, so I specialize in jazz lead playing, and I rather enjoy the cover band gigs that keep me above the staff for hours at a time. I have had the chance to study with a number of excellent world-class musicians, and I try to take the lessons I have learned from them and apply them towards helping my students. I'm trying to avoid name-dropping,

After only 2 years, my son is a amazing trumpet player and has been picked to join Jazz bands and has had solo performances. I don't know how he does it, but my son has learned so much in such a short time!!!

Excellent Teacher, Great Advice, Great player!!!

Zach is really a grade A teacher, knows how to describe different techniques in great detail for the full understanding of the student. He really knows his stuff, and I highly recommend him as a teacher for a student of any level. He can really help me scream into the stratosphere!!! Amazing lead player himself with a full grasp of the techniques needed to be the great musical player he is! Thank you!

About Angela

Hi! My name is Angela, and I teach private piano, voice, and theory lessons. I love teaching, and have taught many ages (3 to 93) and ability levels (novice to advanced). I am a dependable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher. I offer lessons for 30, 45, or 60-minute weekly sessions in my home studio. I do not offer bi-weekly lessons or lessons in the student's home. My home is a split-level, with my private living area above and my music studio below. There is a waiting area just outside the music studio, as well as a half-bath specifically designated for students and parents. The studio itself contains a piano and organ, my personal music library, and additional seating for parents. There is a full-length mirror for vocal students to watch their performance skills grow, and a ...

Angela is GREAT!! She gave me lots of helpful exercises to do outside of the lessons. And she was very accommodating when I wanted to sing in a language other than English. I WILL return to lessons with her.

Angela moves at a pretty good clip, which is fine with me. I appreciate that she is tailoring the lessons to suit my abilities, rather than a one-size-fits all approach. I feel like I am a part of making choices, when appropriate. At the same time, Angela is confident in respectfully voicing a different opinion, and explaining it. I'm also taking piano lessons with her and appreciate her finding occasions to combine voice and piano opportunities.

About Michael

I have been playing guitar for 40 years! I love to teach, and I specialize in beginner students. I stress proper form and techniques,with an emphasis on acoustic guitar.My students have fun learning their favorite songs from the very first lesson,while learning to read music and strum chords. *** Lesson Details *** I am a laid back person with lots of patience.But I expect my students to practice as much as possible. I customize my curriculum to each students needs and wants. *** Studio Equipment *** Lots of guitars for students use, and music stands, a separate music room *** Travel Equipment *** student should have his or her own guitar,I have all other necessary guitars and instructional material *** Specialties *** I specialize in acoustic finger style guitar

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 instruction. 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 ...

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.

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!

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 instrument 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 ...
