About Andrew
Obtained an Associates in Arts at Butler County Community College, El Dorado, KS.
Obtained a Bachelors in Music Education from Wichita State University, Wichita, KS.
I'm an accomplished accompanist and vocalist, with 10 plus years of expertise. Currently, I’m a volunteer worship leader at church, for over 6 years; helping other musicians fulfill their ultimate potential through training and education. Collaborate with other musicians for worship opportunities and projects. Been able to facility vocal training, how to lead a worship experience and which instrumentation and vocal concepts to are appropriate.
Played piano at Von Maur, for 6 months where I utilized my piano skills to provide entertainment and guest requests.
Currently have many different music students, where each week we assess their strengths that fulfill their
ultimate potential, through activities and diverse learning concepts.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that all musicians have the abilities to fulfill their ultimate potential; by assessing students learning styles, accessing community resources and just having fun learning musical concepts.
Curriculum examples that I would utilize for piano would be Adventures in Piano and Succeeding at the Piano. For the vocal students I utilize Exceptional Musicianship, created by Hal Leonard for accurate vocal techniques.
Within 3 months the students will have opportunities to demonstrate their musical abilities. I will provide opportunities for students to demonstrate musical expertise through recitals and other events.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Main Room: electric keyboard (full 88 keys), couch, TV, and a chair, book cases, parents can sit in the lesson (encouraged)

*** Travel Equipment ***
The expectation is that the students must have access to a piano and audio equipment for their success.

*** Specialties ***
The musical genres I'm an expert include Broadway, Show Choir, Faith-Based, Classical, Jazz, Pop, Performing Arts, Acting, Staging, Costuming, Props. I believe that students need to have access with various musical styles that will aid their musical abilities.

Anna M. graduated in Chelyabinsk, Russia in Music Pedagogical College #1 as music teacher and music educator in 1984, and graduated from Academy of Culture and Arts as a teacher of choral disciplines and conducting in 1989.

She has taught all ages from preschool to college having 25 years of pedagogical experience as a music teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
Anna's teaching philosophy is that every child has a music talent, and the way that he will develop this musical
ity depends on conditions like the wish of a child to play piano, and parents' support which includes a practice at home and admiration for kid's success.

The main task for a teacher is to inspire a child to love music. To do it she uses an integrated approach to play piano. Her lessons include playing piano by notes, theory and history of music, clear singing, and selection of accompaniment for students' favorite songs.

For young students Anna uses music games and recital for families. She prefers to teach beginning and intermediate students because it is very important to open the beauty of music and understand it.

Anna is using Alfred's method to teach the young students. She bases her adult program on books by Nancy and Randall Faber.

Anna has been teaching our two children for over a year. She is very patient and pays attention to detail. She has noticed things in our son that a previous teacher had missed. Her teaching style is relaxed, but she does ensure that the songs are learned well. She also takes the extra step to have a twice annual recital in her own home. Overall, a sold choice for a piano teacher.

About Lela
I teach all lessons either in my home or online using the online takelessons platform (preferred) or through Skype or FaceTime.
I do not travel for in home lessons.

I am very passionate about music and believe it can serve as a gateway for many areas in life. It provides and assists with growth in many areas including: structure, motivation, creativity, communication, endurance, focus, and so much more!!
Learning an instrument is a priceless investment and is something that stays with you for life.

QUALIFICATIONS:
MUSIC AND EDUCATION:
I am 25 years old and have recently finished school for my degree in Music Therapy and completed my 900 hour (6 month) internship at a behavioral health hospital. I am currently in graduate school for mental health counseling.
I have been musically involved for thirteen years, gaining experie
nce from many avenues including band, private lessons, choirs, and musical gigs. I taught music theory and ear training at an after school music and arts business for 1.5 years and worked with a variety of students ranging from 6 years old to twenty years old. As a music therapist, I am required to be proficient on my main instrument (flute) plus on guitar and piano. I am also required to be proficient in the creation and implementation of goals and objectives, people skills, and to have an empathetic, understanding, and positive approach in all I do. I believe these skills contribute greatly to the effectiveness of my teaching. I am also qualified and willing to teach adaptive lessons for students with all types of disabilities. This includes mental and physical.

PSYCHOLOGY:
I am currently pursuing a masters in mental health counseling and have a minor in psychology. I have completed a practicum at a behavioral health hospital and an internship at another behavioral health hospital.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
Education experience: I taught music theory for 1.5 years in Tallahassee, Florida. I am currently a certified substitute teacher in Volusia county Florida for elementary through high school and I teach flute sectionals at local middle schools and high schools. I have also been a teachers aide in two kindergarten classrooms. This job required me to teach students individually and in small groups. I also provided music groups with the kindergarteners once a week. Prior to this I have been a regular dividend in a kindergarten classroom for a semester, have lead flute choir and flute sectionals, and have volunteered often in an elementary art classroom.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
My teaching style is organized yet laid-back. I am sympathetic and positive in my approach. I am understanding of your busy schedules so am very flexible although my schedule is quite limited and it may be difficult to reschedule lessons.
I have access to lesson books/textbooks and can make suggestions for you based on your needs and desires. If you are a beginning piano student you will need to purchase your own book. (It's about $6.00 on Amazon.)
Our first lessons will be based around assessing your strengths and weaknesses. From there I will create a schedule customized to your specific needs. Your input is important to me as I am always willing to be flexible based on your personal needs and preferences.
Learning music is FUN so I will make sure you are enjoying the lessons as well as getting the most out of them that you can!

PRICING INFO:
Flute, piano, and guitar lessons are $25/30 minutes and ukulele is $20/30 minutes. This is a set price. I do not haggle. I do provide sibling discounts!

Aside from being an excellent musician, Josh is personable and easy to be around. Having someone who is not only proficient at teaching, but who makes the learning atmosphere relaxed and comfortable has been incredibly helpful to my progress. I'd highly recommend taking any sort of lesson with Josh!

It has been about 20 years since I last took piano lessons, but recently decided that it was something I wanted to get back into and Josh has been awesome! He’s been very accommodating and we’ve found a good combination of working on lesson-like material, tempo, and on pieces that I’ve wanted to learn how to play. He is very attentive and takes notes throughout the lesson so that we make sure that we always start back up at the same place each time. I’ve been very happy working with Josh over the past few months and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to play the piano again or for the first time!

About Craig
I am a seasoned vet when it comes to playing and teaching guitar. I have over 20 years playing and 5 years (professionally) teaching. I am able to work with a beginner from day one and get them up and playing songs in no time.

Encouragement and positive reinforcement is key when learning to play guitar. You will never hear a discouraging word out of my mouth and we will work together to continue moving forward.

A little about me personally: I have been married for 14 years now. My wife Leah and I have 3 children, Caleb, Claire, and Caitlin. I am in the Valley Center (Wichita) KS area. My musical passion and style ranges from country and folk to hard rock and blues. If it's on the guitar, I can play it and I can teach it.

Craig is a great teacher. I began playing guitar in middle school because I wanted to join the youth worship band. Along the way Craig mentored me and grew my passion for guitar. Without a doubt if you want to really gain a passion for this instrument Craig is the best teacher for you.

About Susanne
At the age of 12, I discovered what an amazing and versatile instrument the piano can be, and have been studying it, as well as eventually teaching others about its possibilities, ever since. I have had the privilege of playing for a variety or groups and soloists, as lead pianist for many musicals with many different theater groups, playing worship music for my church, accompanying choirs from professional through high school groups, going to various music festivals, playing with orchestras and in professional bands and much, much more! I want to share this wealth of knowledge and experience with my students, and help them succeed in whatever type of music they most enjoy playing.

I "study" each student and adjust my teaching style to fit their learning style. I make sure my students know the basics of note reading, rhythm and theo
ry, and then expand the instruction to include whatever most inspires them; classics, Christian, jazz, improvisation, playing by chord or anything else. I set a very specific practice plan for each student every week, so that - with regular and precise practice at home - each student can achieve great results.
