I had been playing Guitar with zero musical training and zero knowledge of theory for about a year and a half prior to being taught by Francesca.
Dan made me feel very comfortable from the beginning. This is the first voice lesson I have ever had and I wasn't sure what to expect.
He sent me an e-mail with a summary of what we went over, which I found very helpful.
The location is right off the freeway and easy to find with plenty of free parking. I highly recommend him for singing lessons!"

I think if we could describe Jeff we would use the words "integrity, discipline and passion".

I'm a member of the Indianapolis Piano Teachers Association and also work frequently as a choral and instrumental accompanist. I studied piano privately for 15 years, including as a student at the Jacobs School of Music at IU and at Rocky Ridge Music Center in Estes Park, Colorado.
I structure my lessons according to students' individual interests and strengths, while building a strong foundation in piano technique and music theory. With beginning and intermediate students I typically use the Piano Adventures series of books, which I supplement with
I'm a patient, encouraging teacher and we have fun during lessons. I also expect my students to practice daily at home so that they can make steady progress.
PLEASE NOTE: Students need to have a piano, whether acoustic or digital, to practice on at home. This is necessary in order for students to progress and to develop good piano technique. If you prefer to purchase an electric piano, look for one with touch-sensitive, weighted keys, which will mimic the feel of an acoustic piano. If you do not have a piano, I'm happy to offer advice on finding one!

My teaching philosophy
Private lessons are a one on one experience that give students guidance on their specific musical needs. Rather than only working on pieces for un upcoming audition or competition, I emphasize working on a variety of repertoire that will improve all aspects of one’s musicianship. Lessons are not a weekly practice or coaching session, but rather a time for me to help students with what they have already been practicing. More specifically, I help with embouchure formation, tone production, note reading, practice technique, musical phrasing, breathing, performance anxiety, rhythm, music theory, bad habits, or anything that will help the student make better music in the long term. I also frequently provide musical examples and inspiration by playing for my students.
Students are required to practice a minimum of fifteen to forty-five minutes per day (depending on the student’s age), six days per week.
Students are responsible for purchasing their own lesson materials, such as books, valve oil, metronome, etc. Piano students must also have a well maintained piano to practice on. High quality electric keyboards with 88 keys, weighted and touch sensitive, are acceptable.
I have a 24-hour lesson rescheduling policy. If a student fails to provide notice via phone, text or email at least 24 hours prior to the starting time of the lesson, or misses a lesson unannounced, they will be charged for the full lesson cost. If adequate notification is given, the lesson will be made up at a later date. Lessons MAY NOT BE MISSED WITHOUT MAKEUP. I do, however, allow students to miss lessons without makeup during the months of November (up to one lesson), December and August (up to two lessons each month) and July (no limit), and one lesson for spring break.
With rare exception, all of my students take weekly lessons. Students who keep a regular, weekly schedule improve at a far better pace than those who miss frequently.

What defines a music teacher from a music performer? Example from a real life experience: I met my wife on the basis that we both were trumpet performers. She had trumpet lessons from the famous trumpeter Bill Adams, but he did not correct her problem she had to play upper register. She told me how she was really discouraged that she never could
I am an egalitarian pacifist opera, classical & jazz music lover. My mentor was the late, Karl Haas who taught through the NPR program, "Adventures in Good Music". For a singer mentor, I look to John McCormack, John Denver, Tito Schipa, Giuseppe di Stefano, David Gates from Bread, George Benson, Daryl Hall, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Elton John, and Luciano Pavarotti.
