Juliet J.

Saint Louis, MO

About Juliet

I have been a teacher in private practice for 20 years. I have a wide range of experience with singers of all styles and age groups with a variety of goals and skills. I sang with a professional jazz octet for a number of years while maintaining my practice, have taught various master classes, musically directed various musicals, have sung background vocals and played piano on various recordings. I studied vocal and piano performance at Murray State University and studied privately through my adult singing and teaching career.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a big believer of direct appl
ication of core technique to repertoire/style. Generally, lessons are fun, comfortable and laughter is encouraged. I like singers to be working on a wide variety of music from the beginning. It's a great way to understand and explore your voice and how great technique is fundamental to successful development. I find this approach beneficial if you're a beginning student or if you sing professionally. Not to mention, singing songs is fun!!!! I encourage all students to give input on repertoire. Songs are chosen with goals in mind, including working specific parts of the range, preparing for an audition or performance, stamina, strength, and overall vocal development. In 3-6 months you will have a very good understanding of how your voice works and how to apply good technique to a variety of styles of music. My goals for piano students of all ages include a broad understanding of music theory and the ability to sit down and play music! I believe good sight reading skills are paramount for piano enjoyment and functional playing skills. We will sight read at each lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with piano, mic, recoding equipment, and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a full size keyboard for travel.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I'm comfortable with all styles of singing and have coached extensively in most styles, from classical to hip hop to rock. I work with singers with various goals. Some are professional singers, some study for a future career, and some study for personal enrichment. I am very good at teaching solid healthy technique/voice use, with direct application to repertoire, maintaining the singer's authenticity, style, and vocal health.

Ryan B.

Saint Louis, MO

About Ryan

Hello, my name is Ryan B. I appreciate the responsibility, dedication and hard work that comes along with being a music teacher. To me nothing is more rewarding than the students improvement and their personal feelings of success.

Since I have learned how to play a variety of instruments over the course of several years, I have learned how to gather and utilize skills and techniques that I have learned from many great musicians. That means I can take these diverse skills and pass them on to my students! And I am very good at finding just what the student needs to expand their musical horizo
ns.

Training:

-I have been playing a variety of musical instruments (examples are guitar, piano, trombone, saxophone, trumpet, flute, and many more) for seven years
-I am very familiar with the different styles of American music and its history. I have taken music theory courses 1-4.
-I have received two years of private piano lessons

Accomplishments and awards:

-I have performed with six different jazz combinations at St. Louis Community College over the course of two years.
-I have been giving private music lessons for three years.
-I have preformed with international touring artists.
-I received an award for outstanding achievement in jazz improvisation in the Spring of 2012 from St. Louis Community College

Recent achievements- My tenor saxophone student Jay Palamad just got 2nd place out of 40 other students in his all suburban audition!

My alto student Logan Page was just awarded 1st chair at his high school band audition

Schools:

-Graduate of Parkway South High School, year 2006
-I am pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Jazz Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very personable and relaxed teacher, I also have very high confidence in the potential of my students. I give individually tailored music lessons because everyone learns differently. I use beginner to intermediate Hal Leonard and Real Easy books for saxophone, flute, piano trumpet and trombone (occasionally I use hannon exercises for piano).

I have developed some of my own unique musical exercises as well. I believe that after a couple of weeks my students will find that they are having more success and fun with practicing, playing, and performing. I am great with kids and I also cater to special needs students.

I am always interested in my student's musical background and personal interests. The first lesson would consist of assessing the student's present skills/talents, their short term and long term goals as well as introducing technique exercises and determining a song, or songs, to master (apply things learned during lessons). I encourage and set goals for every lesson, so practicing on your own is very important!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have an IPad with an I real book application. With this I can have an entire rhythm section to back myself and my students while we are practicing sight reading and Jazz improvisation. I also can provide a metronome, electric piano, music stands, instrument stands, and some sheet music.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have his or her own instrument. I can provide a metronome, music stand, instrument stands, and some sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I have experience teaching jazz, blues, rock, reggae, Afro beat and funk.

It's not easy to find a harmonica teacher. Ryan has been very reliable. He is flexible with his teaching style and my son really looks forward to his lessons. We bought 5 classes. We finished the last one yesterday. We are taking a break for the end of the school year but will keep Ryan in mind for future lessons.

David M.

Saint Louis, MO

About David

Composer and guitarist David began formal music training at the age of 5 on the drums. He taught himself guitar as a teenager and began playing in local rock bands. Initially entering college as a Journalism major, his passion for music led him to Meramec College where he studied Music Theory with Robert C. Howard and classical guitar with Larry Bolles. From 1990 through 1993, he attended Webster University, and became only the second composer in the school's history to receive the BM/MM Scholarship. While at Webster, he studied composition with Dr. Kendall Stallings, Robert Chamberlin, and K
im Portnoy, Jazz History with Paul Demarinis, and 18th Century Counterpoint with Dr. Eloise Jarvis. During his education, he performed with many student ensembles and sat in on master classes by the great sitarist and surbaharist, Imrat Khan and jazz guitarist Peter Leitch.

In 1993 he started St. Louis SoundWorks with Grammy nominated Adam Long and Mark McClanahan that specialized in mobile recording, and composing music for films and commercials.

As a musician, David has composed over 200 pieces for various instruments and combinations from small chamber ensembles to full orchestra. He was bandleader of two creative ensembles that focused on alternative notation compositions and improvised music, and later co-founded the avant-garde influenced rock band Diverted Course which released two CD's.

As a teacher, David has taught classical guitar and musicianship as an adjunct faculty member at Meramec College and Webster University. He has given seminars on the music of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and Anthony Braxton. He has been teaching privately for 23 years and many of his students have gone on to successful music careers and performed all over the world.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach students of all ages in a fun and positive manner. I am flexible and will tailor the lessons to satisfy your own individual goals. Whether you are a beginner that wants to gain a foundation in technique, sight reading, and basic theory or an intermediate or more advanced player that wants to increase their knowledge and polish their skills, I will devise a plan to meet your needs. I encourage regular practice and like my students to keep a journal to monitor their progress.

I teach a variety of styles including classical guitar, blues, rock, jazz, and avant-garde.

Ultimately, I believe everyone needs a creative outlet, a way to express themselves, and has something unique to say, and I aim to help those students find their own voice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Extra guitars and amps at both places. Mixing board at the studio. Only has a upright piano at his home address but has a keyboard at studio

I've been learning songwriting and music theory from David and it couldn't be any better. He's very professional and personable, and he makes sure to work with you, not above you. He shows a genuine enthusiasm for his students' musical interests and formulates instruction around them. David encourages questions, which creates a comfortable and effective teacher-student interaction. Between my weekly lessons, I find myself impatiently counting down the days until my next scheduled lesson. While the genre of songwriting that I've been working on with David's guidance has been contemporary Christian, I'm sure that he would be an effective teacher in any genre, whether the student were writing songs or playing them.

After the initial panic of trying to learn something at such a ripe old age I was reassured by other reviews that David would be the best bet. They were correct and I recommend him to any age group. After a welcome at the front door assuring me that I was at the right location, he excels in making you feel comfortable. He listens to questions and told me no question was stupid. Takes everything at your speed and recaps from the week before. Is thorough and stops you when finger placement is not correct so you don't begin bad habits. Looks up and acquaints himself with the songs that you want to learn and will stop covering a certain area if you do not want to learn it. He sends you home with just the right amount of practice work and after 3 lessons I feel like I'm getting all of what he's teaching and am improving and adding on more lessons. So happy that I chose David.

My Outstanding Journey

I can't say enough about what I have learned over the past year. To be able to play the gift of music and understand the foundation of it's existence, is truly an edifying experience. My instructor has been absolutely fabulous. His patience, knowledge and his keen ability to translate his knowledge to the specific level of understanding of his students, is nothing short of great. Kudos to you all for having the resident talent to make my, and others, dreams of learning to play music a reality.

Best of wishes to all this upcoming New Year.

Lisa Y.

Ballwin, MO

About Lisa

My love of singing began with my mother. She is an amazing singer but didn't really receive training, so she encouraged me to pursue singing. I was in choirs since 3rd grade and started voice lessons in 8th grade. My senior year in high school I was part of a choir that was invited to sing on NPR's From The Top! It was a thrilling experience.
I received a bachelor of music degree in vocal performance from Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia. I participated in choirs, musicals, and other performance venues, including two recitals.
Since graduation I have moved to St. Louis to purs
ue singing and teaching. I am excited to share my love of singing with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I want to facilitate your musical growth, working with you to reach your goal. Regardless of genre, good singing starts with a strong base built on posture, breathing, support, and vocal production. These skills are pivotal for singers at any age and vital for those who want to advance their skill level.
As lessons progress, students will learn good musicianship skills, including sight reading and music theory. As they master the basics, they will learn to make the music their own and express themselves through the music.
Each lesson will be different, as each student learns differently. Singing is very personal, as your voice is a big part of you. I will try to find what works for each singer to sing with ease and enjoyment.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide a piano and a music stand as well as a CD player if you have accompaniment CDs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring music at the beginning, but expect students to buy their own books. They would also need to provide a piano or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I was trained in classical music; I also love singing Broadway music and pop. But throughout all genres, there are similarities in singing. Learning good posture, breathing, vowels, etc. are valuable in any singing style.

My experience with Ryan as a teacher has been extraordinary. I have been affiliated with music my entire life and I would have to say that all of my previous choir instructors have a passion for music. Ryan's passion for the art of music makes you want to discover your inner passion for the music. He is very enthusiastic about teaching and great at listening for what may help the student excel. The best thing I can say about Ryan is that he is not a hard critic, which makes it that much easier and comfortable to find your voice while working with him. I appreciated his help thus far and hope to continue working with him!
