I know nearly nothing about music, but just love to try. Lyle is patient, and able to be flexible if I have not been able to practice (as much as I should!)

About Valerie
2015 graduate from Lawrence University with a bachelor of music in horn performance (and an unofficial degree in swing dancing)

I love to help students find a passion for the horn. If the student is starting the instrument, I hope to provide the right tips to create good practice habits. Once a student knows how to practice without a teacher, that is when improvement has no boundaries. It is then that we can focus on building the right techniques so that musicality can come out uninhibited.

I love to spread that excited smile that can come from nowhere else than swing dancing. I teach Li
ndy Hop, Charleston, East Coast, and Collegiate Shag. With just a little enthusiasm to learn, inspiration can be pulled from everywhere. Even though the eyes may be on the moves, I emphasize that form, connection, and direction are the foundation of it all. But my ultimate goal is to free people up to have fun though listening to the music and improvising with another person.

About Heather
Having begun teaching lessons while still in high school, I went on to major in music and graduated with a degree in sacred music in 1999. Since earning that degree, I have accompanied for three separate vocal music CDs using original improvised piano accompaniments. I have played sacred music in church for 25 years and have a great deal of experience improvising with hymns. I have taught piano, flute, choir, and general music at a private academy for over ten years. Having recently earned my Masters in Education, I enjoy discovering students' strengths and seeking to shape them into the b
est musicians and individuals they can be.

Mrs. Ross has a passion for perfected technic. She takes time on making sure things are done properly and is very encouraging along the way. She is a wonderful teacher with a bright and helpful attitude. You never need fear asking a dumb question to her. She is always very thorough in her answers. She makes learning fun and the students want to learn.

I took piano lessons from Heather Ross in high school before going on to take a piano pedagogy major in college. Her teaching was a definite help in preparation for my college studies, and I learned much from her during my time studying under her. Heather is a knowledgeable and skilled teacher who understands what it takes to bring a student from one level to the next.

It's always overwhelming when your trying out a new instrument for the first time but David is the one to show you in the right direction. In just a short hour, he had showed me the basic principle on how to play and how to read the notes off the page which were greatly helpful. I can't wait to go to my next session!

Kay has been great to work with. After just three lessons I feel I am doing some things better technically and I have gained confidence in my singing. I'm looking forward to seeing how much more I can improve.

Taking lessons with Kay has been one of the best decisions of my singing career. She has helped me prepare for auditions across the United States, built my confidence as a multi-genre performer, and increased my range dramatically. She not only has the knowledge, experience, and skill set to help performers take their passions to the next level, she also has the caring heart of a mentor to help you make the decisions that are best for you and your performance goals.
