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 gumball machine for when younger students have an exce
ptionally good lesson.

Making music is a skill which can bring lifelong joy to the musician as well as everyone around them. While I can easily ensure that my students enjoy music-making while they are taking lessons, my ultimate goal is that students continue to want to make music throughout their entire life, even after they stop taking lessons. I firmly believe that my job as a teacher is to train my students to be independent and self-sufficient musicians. Many teachers teach by rote, playing a passage to a student and then having the student play it back. Though this method is helpful in some situations, students who are taught in this manner often find that they are only able to play the songs taught to them in lessons, and that to learn a new song they must have a teacher by their side showing them how the song goes. In my lessons, however, students are taught to learn their own music through sight-reading, ear-training, music theory, and listening to and critiquing their own playing. Over time, this allows the student more and more freedom to make music without a teacher.

I have taken piano lessons on and off since I was a little girl. Angela, is the best piano teacher I've had so far and this is including my time taking piano lessons for college classes. I wish I would've found her a long time ago.

I am adding a review to override my original 4 star review to a 5 star review. My husband and I have been voice and piano students of Angela for well over a year now and she makes learning music interesting, fun, and challenging. It's intimidating to learn these skills (especially singing) as an adult but she is such a good teacher that we continue to look forward to our lessons and really enjoy learning these skills. She is encouraging and an excellent coach.

About Zelina
I am a professional singer and voice teacher. I perform as a lead vocalist with a popular top 40 band in St. Louis and can be seen singing with several other well known bands in the city and region. I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Bachelors of Jazz Vocal Performance. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, low stress and fun!

Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I will teach students ear training, and proper breathing and vocal technique as well as to read music and understand music theory if the interest exists. I tailor my approach to the needs of each students individual needs and goals.
I can help any student to sing with more freedom,
confidence, and expression!

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Alternative, Pop, Musical Theatre, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

About Daniela
Hi ! My name is Daniela and I can't wait to meet you!
I have been teaching piano and theory since 1994 and have loved helping my students discover the beautiful world of music. Seeing my students grow into well rounded and educated people that love art, are able to recognize different styles of music, express their feelings and emotions on this wonderful instrument makes me really happy. My students range from people who simply want to learn how to play proficiently as a hobby to students who are considering making music their future career.
I strongly believe that a chance to go on a big stage and play on a great Steinway piano in front of people, makes a big difference in children's lives: teaches them self control, gives them great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Taking part in festivals and piano competitions helps
with building high self esteem even more.
I look forward to helping you and your children to reach your goals!

After my first lesson with Daniela I knew she was the perfect instructor. She was very patient but didn't let you slide when you messed something up. That means a lot as an adult learning to play. If you are looking for an instructor, look no further than Daniela.

About Chris
Hi! My name is Chris, but a lot of people call me Luppy (pronounced "loopy"). I am a professional musician in the St. Louis area specializing in jazz as well as performing with my band Sky West Trio (www.skywesttrio.com). I am classically trained but also play by ear. I have years of experience in the music business. I toured the country for 8 years with a band (LP Outsiders) that led to a publishing deal with Windswept Pacific, landing a song on the Three To Tango movie soundtrack, appearing on the Disney Channel Show "2 Hour Tour" with 98 Degrees, and opening for many national acts. We even toured with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy for a year. I also played trumpet on a b-side on Natalie Imbruglia's multi-platinum selling single to "Torn," and did some songwriting with Robbie Nevil (of "Ce La Vie" fame).I also have performed all over the wor
ld including many caribbean islands like Aruba, Barbados, Curacao, St. Maarten and St. Kitts.

I offer lessons to people of ALL AGES! I customize my lessons to focus on the things YOU WANT TO LEARN. My favorite thing to teach is how to play by ear! I can teach you the system that all professional musicians use to be able to play songs instantly after hearing it once. It really is possible with a little practice.

I do also teach the classical repertoire if that is what you are more interested in. For most students, I teach a combination of playing by ear and learning music theory, as well as some classical repertoire.

Chris is the BEST! He's very good at backing-up for me, and thinking of a different way to explain something I'm having trouble grasping. That's an ART in teaching style! I appreciate it so much.

About Amy
Hello! My name is Amy. I am a senior at UMSL (University of Missouri-St. Louis), pursuing a degree in Music Education. I am passionate about both learning and teaching. I have been playing cello since 2004, and have studied cello with Kurt Baldwin since 2014.

I have been teaching private cello lessons since January 2016, working with students between the ages of 7 and 60+ years old.

In order to cultivate individual skill and musicality, I emphasize a strong, technical foundation built on scales and etudes (which eventually leads to playing the cool stuff, I promise!). Together in lessons, we will find creative ways to practice efficiently and effectively, so that every time you pick up your cello, you will improve your musicianship and love your sound.
I am confident that we will have a blast learning together!

Thank you for you
r time :)
