Charlie H. Kansas City, MO

About Charlie

B I O G R A P H Y I was born and raised in London England, where I first discovered my love of music. Growing up I studied classical piano for 10 years, and was educated through the Royal Associated Board and Trinity College. Moving to the states, I carried my musical passion and took further instruction in voice, guitar, saxophone, and violin. I graduated in 2011 from a pioneering local music school and have maintained a home teaching studio for several years. I have experience working with students from all ages and musical backgrounds, primarily working on improvisation, theory and composition. D E T A I L S Charlie believes that learning an instrument should primarily be an exciting and gratifying endeavor, although this does not negate the fact that diligent practice ...

Tim T. Blue Springs, MO

About Tim

My wife and I have been teaching piano lessons in the Kansas City area for more than 16 years. We have studios in our home; she teaches upstairs and I teach downstairs! I am currently accepting new students and welcome the opportunity to see them grow and experience the joy of piano playing. My full-time job is serving as the minister of music at a local suburban church. I work with all of the vocal and instrumental programs there and direct choirs and orchestra. While some of my piano students are also involved in church music, I also teach students in the entire Kansas City area and we cover every genre: classical, country, pop, rock and Broadway styles. I encourage each pianist to discover his or her own passion for playing! I have more than 30 years of experience teaching ...

Great Drum Instructor

Brad is currently working with me as a drum instructor. I had been working with another instructor for about 2 yrs when I realized it was time for change. Brad was a perfect fit when we met. Brad works with me once a week for anywhere from 1/2 to 1 hr depending on my needs. He has been so encouraging and supportive of everything I want to learn as well as what he feels I need to learn. My skills are improving everyday with the techniques he uses which fit me very well. I am very blessed to have him as my new drum instructor. He is very good at adapting to where you are and moving forward from there. I would recommend Brad to anyone who is ready to learn the drums no matter at what level you are currently playing.

Fantastic!

Brad worked with me as a drum teacher from the ages from 11-16. Brad encouraged me day by day at each lesson, the encouragement resulted in the constant addition of new skills and great competence, Brad encouraged me to play in many different styles and situations and provided opportunities that allowed me to stretch myself out of my comfort zone in many situations. In outside situations I was not required to "try out" due to my well-known skills. I would recommend Brad's teaching expertise to anyone interested in learning drums or continuing to expand their skills.
Michael F. Pleasant Hill, MO

About Michael

I love teaching students that love music of absolutely any age! Some of my favorite students are senior citizens starting a new hobby. No matter what the age, I love to see my students faces light up when they realize that they can play music that they love so easily. I can't count the amount of times that my students have told me, "I should have started doing this a long time ago."

Heather N. Overland Park, KS

About Heather

Teaching music is a privilege and a joy. I've had the great pleasure of teaching students of all ages and ability levels. Currently I am completing my doctorate in vocal pedagogy from the University of Kansas, and should be defending in early fall. My training has given me unique and comprehensive training in anatomy and physiology of the voice, which gives me a thorough understanding of vocal development. I am connected to area medical centers and voice clinics and am a Singing Voice Specialist working with clients who have been diagnosed with a vocal injury, such as polyps or nodules. I have been teaching voice and piano for fifteen years, including teaching at universities as a faculty member. I strive to develop curriculum that is student-centered and will meet the student's ...

I have worked with 6 excellent voice teachers over 18 years and Heather is among the best. I asked her to work with me on operatic arias and she does so gladly even though I do not have an opera career. I do sing solo at my church monthly and have done a concert in Palo Alto, CA, sang the solo "O thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion" in a performance of the Messiah in Belton, MO, and have sung at benefits and musicals. She is knowledgeable, communicates well, her instructions are clear and helpful, and she is a joy to work with. I learn something new and helpful at each lesson. I look forward to continuing working with her for however long we can be together. Thank you for having such an excellent teacher on your website.
