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 Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and am currently pursuing a MM and vocal pedagogy cerification. I sing professionally in two choirs as well as solo work.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a big believer of direct application 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.

About Aria
I hold a doctorate degree in Music and specialize in teaching classical music from the Renaissance period, Baroque, classical periods, as well as pop and broadway. I teach all voice types, with expertise in mezzo soprano and countertenor literature, but vast knowledge in all. I use proven vocal techniques along side vocal yoga practices to help people to find their true, natural voice.

I have considerable experience training those with disabilities, mental illnesses, and performance anxiety. I teach holistically, believing the voice to be an instrument inseparable from the person. With all students we endeavor to sing healthily, preserving voices for longevity, and to meet whatever goals the students desire. I am studied in the Bel Canto, Lamberti, and Concone technique and have successfully prepared many students for auditions, cont
ests, festivals, and self confidence for life. The techniques for singing that I use are to create a sound, healthy, and free voice. Hope to study along side you!

Dr Aria is a wonderful teacher. She is knowledgeable of course, but even more importantly Aria is a gentle, understanding, and talented teacher. I have enjoyed every moment with her and have definitely improved my vocal skills. By the way, I am myself an experienced music teachet and have never had a better teacher than Dr Aria. As I’ve said, some teach because that’s what they do, but Aria teaches because that is who she is.

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.

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.

About Sammy
Hi! I am a guitarist, vocalist, and beatboxer looking to help others get started with guitar (but I can throw in beatboxing tips too!!).

When I was 13, after tearing my way through the Guitar Hero franchise, my brother suggested I give the real instrument a shot. I used my saved up cash to buy a guitar, learn every Red Hot Chili Peppers song I possibly could, form a band, and jam endlessly.

As a player, I've faced what every new student of the instrument has: turbulent confidence, inconsistency with motivation, tendencies to stick with what's comfortable and avoid what is scary or could potentially lead to failure, etc. Eventually, I began to realize that music, guitar, and artistic expression were absolutely essential in my life to be happy, and I couldn't put down my guitar from that day forward. That fundamental hunger to express
is something I really hope to bring out in others as I help them get started with their personal guitar journey, whether they have musical experience or not.

As a teacher, I taught beginner acoustic guitar extensively as a summer camp counselor at Camp Eagle Ridge leadership camp (co-ed, ages 7-17). I'm especially experienced in working with kids, but I also have experience working with adults. Do note that I'm willing to teach to students that want to learn electric guitar, as well as those who want to learn acoustic.

Whether you enjoy listening to rock, funk, blues, hip-hop, indy, country, metal, or anything else, I guarantee I share a few favorite artists and a passion on some level. I hope to create a lesson plan that is personalized to what you like!

Please note that at this time I'm only looking to teach beginners or people bridging the gap between beginner and intermediate. Reach out if you have any questions. Looking forward to getting started!

I have picked up and put down the guitar more times than I can count in my life. No one has gotten me further in my skill set than Sammy. To start, he’s very concrete in his teaching style. He helps me set specific, realistic goals and tailors his lessons around meeting them- both in the short and long term. Above being an incredibly skilled guitarist, he is a very clear communicator. He is able to clearly talk me through where I am and the rationale in how we’re going to get me to where I want to be. Above all, and I can’t empahsize this enough, Sammy “gets” the human element. He helps me work through inevitable frustrations and difficulties, while being very vocal in his praise when I hit a milestone. Sammy REALLY cares about my success, which has made me even more invested in learning. I could not recommend Sammy more, as both a guitarist and as a great guy. Thank you Sammy!

Sammy was prompt and very personable. I was very happy with how he customized the lesson to help meet my end goal in learning to play a specific song. He gave me enough to work on my own during the week. I look forward to the next lesson in fine tuning what I’ve learned and in learning a little bit more. Thanks, Sammy!
