He's very good with the kids and is great at keeping them engaged. Listens to my comments and concerns and has been flexible in his lessons to keep the kids challenged without frustrating them. I have two boys working with him. They are both so excited to share with me what they've learned after each lesson. I've never seen them look so proud of themselves as they do after their weekly drum lessons!

Rates are very reasonable also.

Mike is a patient teacher who's great at gauging progress. My 6 year old son has been learning new things each week without getting too flustered and loves going to lessons! Mike really makes an effort to find the approach that works best for his student.

She studied Voice under Tamara Whitley for 6 years and under Charles Livesay at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. Lisa has been teaching Piano lessons for 10+ years and Voice lessons for nearly as long. She studied piano pedagogy and vocal music education at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She then taught music at West Highland Christian Academy for K-12 students and Home School Band and Choir for upper elementary students. Along with teaching, Lisa leads wo
rship at Bend City Church and has accompanied for several community plays and student scholarship events.

Lisa teaches all styles of voice including Classical, Italian, Jazz and Folk styles as well as Contemporary, Pop and Broadway. She incorporates the fundamentals into her every day teaching style and helps the student to grow in their technical ability through application in each song they study.

Lisa will discuss with the student which direction they would like to go and decide together what the student would like to learn.

You will receive a copy of Lisa's studio policy at your first lesson. You will be required to read over and sign this policy before lessons are to continue.

I sat in the room while 5 year old Maia had her lesson with Lisa. Maia seemed relaxed and able to follow Lisa's instructions. I was really impressed with Lisa's approach to the lesson and feel lucky to have connected with her. Maia said she likes her teacher too and was able to show me what she learned in her first lesson! Looking forward to future lessons with Lisa!

Paul N.

Milwaukee, WI

About Paul

***My goal as a teacher***

I try to teach what the students are interested in and make it fun and interesting so that they learn the lessons and their favorite songs. Every student is different and needs to be taught in a way that makes learning easy and fun for them.

I have a passion for all people and all ages and am blessed to be able to teach from the very young, (ages 2-5 Kindermusik lessons) to teens and adults.....all the way to senior citizens. I've had many older students all the way up to a 93 year old gentleman who is taking singing lessons and asked me to put music to his l
yrics. We have recorded over 50 songs together.

***Background***

I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also because they seemed exciting. I've competed in WSMA (Wisconsin School Music Assoc.) for many years which taught me a lot about performing for judges, being relaxed, and the importance of preparation.

I started playing the guitar and bass guitar when I was 13 and have never stopped practicing and performing since. I also have done a lot of writing, recording, producing, and have a Pro Tools Studio for students to use.

***College and Teaching***

I began teaching music lessons in college and enjoyed it very much. I received my B.A. in Music from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. There I was very much involved with guitar, piano, voice, trumpet, and being in bands and writing music. After receiving my B.A. I also took 3 years of Education classes at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I write, produce, and perform my music along with performing with bands around the Midwest.

***Life in Music***

After receiving my B.A. in Music, I continued teaching and opened up my home studio. After a year and a half I had enough students that I was able to quit my factory job and teach music full time. I've been teaching, performing, and writing music ever since.

***Performing and more***

I have been on stage performing music since I was 11. In school band, marching band, competing in music competitions, and in bands touring the Midwest.

I have recorded many CDs with bands and on my own. My most ambitious project was a CD of my original music called, "Girls". I've performed my music and promoted it by being interviewed on Milwaukee radio stations along with internet music sites such as CD Baby. It is very exciting talking on live radio about my music and my passion. It is also even more exciting, and scary, playing my music live on the radio, lol.

***Instruments Taught***

I have been teaching for over 2 decades. Students take lessons for:
* guitar (electric / acoustic)
* piano
* voice
* drums
* trumpet
* saxophone
* harmonica
* music theory / ear training
* studio recording / songwriting

I also give kindermusik lessons to 2-5 year old all the way up to senior citizens 70-93. I play parties, concerts, and Nursing Home performances.

I am experienced as an online (Skype) instructor, and I have taught online lessons worldwide. I've witnessed great results from my online students (both national and international).

I hope I can help you with all of your musical goals and get you going in a positive musical direction.

Good teacher and knows his stuff, but is too talkative and condescending. Lessons were interrupted by lectures to me on "life" and got off topic for several minutes (before I knew it the lessons were done because the lectures cut into our practice time). No real structure or lesson plan, just told me "the student is the boss and you decide where the lesson goes." Most teachers have a plan, structure, or goal for the student, at least by the 2nd lesson but not in this case. Also charged me for a cheap binder with music notes in it when I was done with the 1st lesson (which i would think is included in the price) and said it was optional, when in reality, I needed it to practice. If his lessons had more direction and he was more friendly, he would be a great teacher, but he was not for me.

Paul is a very patient and persevering teacher, he is particularly adept with the reluctant or difficult child, he never stops being encouraging and is dedicated to instilling knowledge to the child. I've had a very good experience with Paul and feel my child has gained some valuable musical knowledge at a young age which will become increasingly useful as time goes by.

Since earning that degree, I have accompanied for three separate vocal music CDs using original improvised piano accompaniments.

Mrs. Ross has a passion for perfected technic. She takes time on making sure things are done properly and is very encouraging along the way. She is a wonderful teacher with a bright and helpful attitude. You never need fear asking a dumb question to her. She is always very thorough in her answers.

I took piano lessons from Heather Ross in high school before going on to take a piano pedagogy major in college. Her teaching was a definite help in preparation for my college studies, and I learned much from her during my time studying under her. Heather is a knowledgeable and skilled teacher who understands what it takes to bring a student from one level to the next.

I took lessons for a short time with Kenny and it really helped with my playing. He is very knowledgeable and has a way of explaining things so that they make sense. I had a hard time with chords and he worked with me to understand what I was doing wrong. His enthusiasm for playing is contagious. Hopefully I can find some time in the near future to take some lessons from Kenny.

Great instructor

Kenny is an amazing teacher. He's been teaching my 13 year old for a year. She had a guitar teacher before Kenny that just didn't get her excited about guitar. Kenny makes learning guitar fun but also really gets through to my daughter so that she understands and continues to improve on a broad range of music. He's really easy to talk with and so intelligent about music as a whole, not just guitar. Plus he listens to my daughter when she wants to learn something that really interests her. Such a special teacher!
