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,

My son made Amazing progress

My son picked to play the trumpet for middle school band, I signed him up to have lessons 1 x a week with Zack. 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!

Angela H. Hazelwood, MO

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

About Veronica

Music has been a part of my life since I was a child. I started singing in choirs around 7, and started piano lessons at 8. I am a graduate of Loyola University New Orleans with a Bachelors of Music Education and a Masters of Music. I have sung with the Loyola Opera Theater, New Fangled Opera, New Orleans Opera, and was a resident artist at the International Performing Arts Institute in Kiefersfelden, Germany. I love music, and I love teaching! I've been studying music since I was a child, and want to give as many people as possible the chance to experience the joy and fulfillment that comes from making music. Whatever your musical goals are--whether you want to sing or play for recitals, competitions, your friends and family, or just yourself--I can help you achieve them. Whether you're

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.

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!

6 Beautiful Songs for Piano and Voice
Sometimes, it's good to take your singing practice back to the basics, and just sing with a small ensemble. Most satisfying of all is working only with a good pianist - the level of detail just you and one other musician can achieve when working on material for piano and voice is very valuable to your development as a singer, no matter what stage you're at. If you're stuck for ideas of what to work on, the following six songs - one religious, two modern pop classics, one German-language lied, o
Guitar Theory Basics: Understanding Keys
Curious about keys? Guitar teacher Alexander A. breaks down the guitar theory behind understanding keys... What key am I in? For most of the music we play this simple question yields a simple answer. I think the REAL question here is “why.” Why is a piece of music considered to be in the key of G major, or A minor, or any other key? I was in my 3rd semester of Jazz Harmony at Berklee when the instructor stumped the entire class with this question. I think the answer will surprise you. The
Play Thousands of Songs Using these Guitar Chord Progressions
If you've spent much time on YouTube, you're probably familiar with the Axis of Awesome. For the uninitiated, the Axis of Awesome performs snippets of almost 50 songs in under 6 minutes using the same 4 chord progression. The video is super fun, and it creatively shows off an open secret that professional musicians have known about for decades. Essentially, most popular songs are based on just a handful of guitar chord progressions. Sometimes the chords are modified (adding a 7th or 9th for e

But how often should you take lessons? Mastering the guitar requires blending many skills together,  and using your body and mind in unison to create music. You must perfect your muscle memory and fine motor skills, while remembering many chords, chord progressions, and how to find particular notes on your guitar. Playing electr
