Clare B. Madison, WI

About Clare

I grew up as a Suzuki violin student in rural Washington state. I received a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Central Washington University. I then moved to London for an academic year to study one-on-one with a violin teacher there. Following my time in London I lived in Seattle, WA and performed as a freelancer and also taught extensively. I am now working on my final year of a Master of Music degree at UW-Madison. *** Lesson Details *** My teaching method draws on the Suzuki method, but also includes ideas and repertoire from other methods and influences. My favorite parts of the Suzuki method are the emphasis on learning by ear and the belief that music should be taught to improve people's lives not just to produce competition-winning professional musicians. I ...

Kristen B. Madison, WI

About Kristen

I want to dispel the myth that only a select few are "gifted" with beautiful voices. Singing is like a sport; it is a skill requiring refined muscular coordination, which anyone can improve with practice and focused instruction. My teaching experience encompasses students of all ages and abilities. My specialty is in classical voice, with a focus in opera and art song. I get a deep feeling of satisfaction from watching my students achieve their personal singing goals, and have sent many on to receive top ratings at vocal competitions and college music scholarships. *** Lesson Details *** My students describe me as "strict but nice". I encourage my students to set their expectations high, and then provide the tools to reach those goals over time. I love to work with ...

Excellent ability to teach the new or accomplished vocalist.

Kristen is wonderful, she is able to make her instructions understandable to the beginner and inspire him to try new things. It's refreshing to see my young son focusing his style with a beautiful classical edge.

Kristen did a great job helping me prepare for an audition in a very short period of time. I am new to singing so we started from the ground up. Her lessons were well thought out and her approach was a good balance of encouragment and pushing me to do my best.
Reed L. Madison, WI

About Reed

I love helping people learn how to play guitar...it's that simple, I believe that if you truly want to know how to play, that it will become as easy as anything you've ever enjoyed! I like helping people enjoy themselves while learning! I've been playing acoustic and electric guitars for about 25 years, and I love to help teach people how to get started playing on their own. It's important for me to help clients figure out what they'd like to learn and where they're at currently as a starting point. One of my biggest goals is to teach people how to learn beyond just having me as a teacher, how to take it from there, and make it happen on their own.

Around the age of 16, an interested in more contemporary style as well as a drive to create something my own inspired the shift into songwriting.
