About Vanessa
A concertizing musician since age 9, I hold a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Music in instrumental performance from the California State University Los Angeles, where I was named the CSU system's youngest to receive a graduate degree. In 2005 I earned a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Arizona, where I was the Graduate Teaching Assistant. I have also been honored as the University of Arizona's youngest doctoral graduate, receiving my degree at age 19.

I have performed as a member and guest soloist with countless chamber ensembles, orchestras, and bands across the United States. Highlights of my international tours include concerts in Shanghai, Seoul, South Africa, Madrid and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. In addition to playing for such notables as Oprah Winfrey, Maya Angelou, Tippi Hedren, Barbara Sinatra, and
Florence Henderson, I have played as an honorary guest at UCLA, the Colburn School, UC Santa Cruz, for the Japanese Ambassador and Embassy, and appeared as guest artist with the Anderson String Quartet, Barry Manilow, and most recently with Il Divo, as well as made several television appearances. My extensive performing experience means that no matter your skill level, as my student I will have you performing, sharing your music with others, and becoming an artist.

I have been the recipient of numerous awards for both my musical and academic performance, including the Valeria Finzi Memorial Harp Competition two years consecutively, the Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Fellowship, and have been named as a Medici Scholar and on the Who's Who Among American Women and National Dean's List. I am also active as a composer, arranger, and transcriber, and have taught for the past 16 years. Teaching has always been a special joy of mine, and I have experience teaching students of every age and skill level. I believe in an individualized approach for each student and love to inspire students with my own love of music and lifelong learning. I have worked as a teaching artist with the McCallum Theatre Institute (with elementary-age children) and an instructor for the Osher Institute (age 55+). With a solid background in Classical masterworks, my technical skill and artistic vision allows for interpretations of a variety of music spanning Celtic, Latin, pop, jazz, and rock genres. I teach piano, harp, music theory and musicianship at Mt. San Jacinto College, music history at College of the Desert and provide private instruction from my studio in Palm Springs.

*** Lesson Details ***
What do you want to learn? If you are passionate about music and interested in improving your skills I will mentor you to help you achieve your personal goals. I will personalize our curriculum depending on your experience level, needs, and desires. I believe in a well-rounded approach so we'll focus not only on leaning the notes, but the inflections and expressions of music, performance techniques, technical dexterity, music theory, and music history. In this way not only can you be a skilled performer, but an informed one as well, no matter what your age. My students are my highest priority- I love working with children, introducing them to music for the first time, as well as with the adult student who "always wanted to take lessons" but hasn't been able to yet. Furthering the talents of experienced musicians is also a pleasure. I will be honored to help you in your musical journey!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: quarter grand piano, pedal harp, Celtic harp, electroacoustic harp. There is an adjacent seating area so parents are always welcome to sit in on lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Under special circumstances I am happy to travel to students who have their instrument and related equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I teach both Classical and popular styles and can specialize according to my students' needs/interests.

I am an adult student, new to music in general. I have been taking harp lessons with Vanessa for about 10 months now and she is absolutely wonderful. Vanessa is extremely knowledgeable about harp, music, and pedagogy. She is also very patient, helpful, and flexible. Vanessa is professional without being stuffy and I always look forward to my lessons! I feel that I have progressed so much and wouldn't have been able to do that without Vanessa.

About Jeffrey
"Music is the catalyst that helps to enhance the quality of life.We as musicians and educators MUST pass it on."

I am a 27 year practicing professional musician, songwriter, arranger, and music educator. Music is my passion. I currently teach guitar, piano, and organ, and serve as minister of music and staff musician for two Chicago area church congregations. I have played guitar and keyboards for local bands, and am well versed with a variety of musical styles.

*** Lesson Details ***
I specifically tailor my lessons for each student....I do not use a "cookie cutter" lesson style. To achieve the best lesson approach for the most positive student outcome, I conduct a student assessment during the first lesson (first lessons are free for a limited time) to determine student skills, goals, and objectives. After the assessment, I
structure a comprehensive, contemporary lesson plan that includes fundamentals, technique, theory, and songs relative to the lesson in a fun and productive manner that engages the student and promotes his/her creativity.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic piano (A 440), Yamaha Digital Piano, Hammond X-C3 organ, 6 string acoustic guitar, 6 string classical guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
My expectation would be that all students I visit in home would have an acoustic piano properly tuned, or a digital piano or keyboard with 88 weighted keys. Guitar students should have a 6 string, acoustic or electric guitar (with an amplifier).

I went through one lesson and Marti has demonstrated that she has both knowledge and skill, I already have shown major improvements from just 30 minutes of working with her. I cannot give a high enough recommendation that would do justice to her. She is absolutely phenomenal if you ever decide to take singing lessons I strongly encourage you take them with Marti.

I have MANY set backs and fears when it comes to singing and have been scorned by teachers before. This is the first time in 7 years that I got the courage to go back to singing lessons and I was smiling the whole time! In just one lesson, Marti managed to give me back confidence that I thought was long gone. She knows her stuff and knows how to help you use the instrument that you have. I love her!

I have learned so much from my lessons with Marti! She creates a safe and it encouraging environment that allows me to develop my vocal abilities.
When I think about where I was when I began to where I am now, I'm amazed at the progress I've made under her instruction. Not only in my technique but also in my confidence.
I come out of my lessons feeling good about myself. And even when I get discouraged she's always there to build me up and help me believe that I can accomplish what I set my mind to.
It has been a great experience!

About Carson
Hi, there! My name is Carson C. and I can't wait to meet you! I've been taking private lessons since 2011 and before that have been in as many school and church choirs and orchestras as I could. Today I've taught my first lesson, and it went great. Now I’m not afraid to go ahead and continue in teaching others. I currently am going to BYU-Idaho to earn a degree in Music. I'm a friendly and fun loving person and am wanting to develop my own teaching style. I look forward to helping you love music just as much, if not more, than I do.

My experience with Carson has been great. I came here wanting to get better at singing and he has done just that. He pushes you the right amount to succeed and is very supportive throughout it. He focuses on what you need to improve upon and teaches you techniques on how you can improve that can be done in the lesson and at home. My experience has been great with him.

About Domenic
I'm an easy-going, patient teacher who remembers what it's like to be a beginner. A lot of teachers can have a tendency to get frustrated with students. I understand what it's like to be a student, and I understand what makes students want to quit. It's my mission to make sure my students have a good time playing and improve as quickly as possible.

I can teach technique, songs, song learning, composition, improvisation, ear development, music theory, and more.

I am a versatile bass player who was played styles ranging from rock n' roll, metal, and progressive music to avant-garde, pop, and funk. I've even played shows live not knowing the songs and made them sound great. Students of mine, if interested, can work towards developing their ears and technique to such a degree that they can do the same.

If you have any questions or reservat
ions at all, please feel free to ask!

About Nicholas
I’ve been playing guitar for over 14 years and have immersed myself in blues, rock and metal. My lessons are tailored to the needs and goals of the individual and include tablature, playing by ear and theory; for people of all ages. I spent 3 summers taking intensive classes at the National Guitar Workshop; learning from some of the countries greatest guitarists. Currently I play in two bands; which tour occasionally and have multiple studio albums.

In my early days of learning guitar one of the most positive impacts for me was learning from a real rock guitarist; hanging out with him, hearing his stories, learning songs by ear and understanding the writing process. I would like to step up and continue passing down the torch to younger generations.

About Leo
My name is Leo. I've been a musician for 28 years and teaching for 14 years and I still continue to pursue all things concerning music with the same passion, perseverance, and love I had at the beginning of my music career.

I received my formal training at Texas State University where I studied Classical guitar and Music Education while also playing in Hard Rock bands in San Antonio. While still in college, I started teaching music privately to help pay for my education. I soon found myself with a successful business and decided to focus on it full time.

My goal is to produce quality music lessons available to anyone who's ever desired to learn the guitar, piano, music production, music theory, Pro Tools, songwriting & arranging, composing for film & video games, and all other important music skills in the comfort of their home.

The starting point of all achievement is desire, so if you desire to become a better musician then don't hesitate, get started now.

About Stephanie
Originally from Dallas Texas, I moved to Rexburg and graduated with an BMA in Vocal Studies and Performance along with a minor in Business Management from BYU-Idaho in the Spring of 2016. With over 12 years of private voice lessons and several years of teaching, my love and knowledge for music has grown immensely.

I LOVE teaching voice. I have worked with kids, teens and young adults from ages 5-27, including students with special needs. Over the course of our classes together, students can expect to improve their vocal techniques and skills significantly. Their knowledge of music, key terminology and theory will also increase.

During my studies, I was featured in several solo performances and roles such as Filia in Carissimi's oratorio Historia di Jephte, Agatha in scenes from the opera Der Freischutz, featured soprano soloist in M
ozart's Vesperae Solennes De Confessore (including performance of Laudate Dominum with famous pianist Alpin Hong), and many others.

My goal as your teacher will be to use my knowledge and skills to enhance your vocal talents to their peak potential. We will conquer any vocal plateau's, stage fright and confusion you may have and become a true, strong performer. I look forward to working with you!
