Saint Louis, MO

(5)

Bgcheck Background Checked


I have 2 years teaching music theory, I love it! In college I became a total theory nerd, and I love discussing and teaching it. I can teach classical theory or jazz theory, and also implement ear training exercises. I start out teaching notes on the treble and bass clefs and move to key signatures, chords, and harmonies.

About Stephen

I earned my bachelor's degree in music with emphasis in jazz performance in drums from Webster University in 2014. I have played countless performances ranging all styles of music!

Sarah is very easy to work with, always interested in helping you the student have fun with the sax, as she has. Despite her great experience and background (or because of it?) she never seemed bored or working beneath herself with a beginner. I could say more, but I better take this time to practice!

Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.

Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the progress our son Thomas made with Dan. Thomas started playing last year and was progressing faster than the rest of his third grade class which is why we were looking for a private teacher to help him along. Before taking lessons with Dan I had a hard time getting Thomas to practice. Thomas has begun practicing all on his own because he has been genuinely inspired. Dan is a true professional who always on time and in a good mood to teach. He was so patient with Thomas and developed practice techniques unique to Thomas's situation. Dan is more than just a violin teacher, he is dedicated to inspiring each student to love music. Thanks Dan!!!

"Cindy is a knowledgeable and nurturing teacher. Her musicianship and generosity of spirit are exactly what a student needs. As a music teacher myself, I wholeheartedly recommend her to you.

I had the opportunity to learn from her the techniques she uses to teach pitch matching to singers and observe her successfullyl using it with a brand new student. She has a gift for pinpointing what is happening and then clearly explaining how to improve, all while building self-confidence. A teacher like her that can help others gain skills, and find joy in music, is a true gem!"

"Jessica is a very good cello teacher. Her meticulous teaching really helped me to sharpen my intonation and finger techniques. Although I only had half a period to learn from her, it was a productive learning experience every minute. Ever since the end of 8th grade I had no cello teacher and it was hard for me to find a new one, however soon I found out that my high school had a cello teacher totally ready for me. When I started taking lessons from her, I found myself learning much more than I would in a regular orchestra. If you're looking for someone to help you sharpen your cello skills, Jessica is the right teacher for you."
