I am a teacher that helps you reach whatever goals you set for yourself. You tell me what you want to accomplish and I will work together with you to make i
t happen. I will create a curriculum according your personal needs and skill level.

If you are taking lessons with me you will learn lots of music theory and music history. I want you to understand the style and reasoning behind each piece of music you play.

About Thomas
From the time I began musical training at the age of 5, I knew that music making would always be an important part of my life. It became my muse and I followed it all around the world. I have performed in Japan, England, Scotland, Wales, Italy, France, Austria, and the United States. I know what makes a good musician and a good performer and I'm pleased to be able to share that with my students! MY STUDENTS WIN AUDITIONS! I taught in several of the States and in London. I am also a certified teacher in Missouri, Kansas and other States including England, Scotland and Wales. I hold a Bachelor’s degree and Doctorate from Ball State University, and a Master’s Degree from the University of Bridgeport. I have studied on fellowship at the Aspen Music Festival and University of London. While teaching in London I performed at many famous venues s
uch as Queen Elizabeth Hall, St. John’s Smith Square and Somerset House. I sing at Lyric Opera of Kansas City where I have appeared in over 90 productions. Upcoming: Mozart: Magic Flute, November 9-17, 2013 and Puccini: La Bohème, March 15-23, 2014   I also sing professionally at Grace and Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Kansas City. Whether you are seeking coaching on technique, Broadway, Opera or the American Songbook, I would be happy to work with you to realize your full potential. I get excited about helping students become good performers! Let me help you become the best musician you can be, IN PERSON or ONLINE!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher with a great sense of humor. You will also learn a lot of music theory and music history from me! My lessons begin with some training in reading music (Music Theory) and I suggest that you purchase Alfred's Music Theory Volume One or Two depending on your level of understanding.

After refreshing your music reading and rhythm skills, we will listen to you sing and begin to vocalize. I will develop exercises just for you, to help you develop your voice, making it stronger and more flexible.

When you have warmed up your voice with vocal exercises, we will work together on the music you wish to learn. It could be a song, an aria, a Broadway or Opera aria, or a religious piece.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large 30 foot living room with two pianos, music stands, keyboard, couches, seating area.
Mac computer, multiple cameras and great sound system.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Bel Canto (beautiful voice) style, operatic singing, Broadway style, Art Songs (Lieder in French, German and Italian.)

He may be good if you want to sing opera. I just didn't connect with him and his 'Style' of teaching. I was looking for more current music and that was where a very large disconnect was.

Right off the bat I could tell that my daughter will flourish with Dr. G. He is very encouraging while simultaneously effective at improving a weak nuance of her current skill set without making it feel like a negative critique. She is very excited to see what he can help her accomplish.

Kristy comes to our home once a week to teach two of my children piano. She has been nothing but punctual, patient and so kind! She not only teaches them how to play and perfect their pieces, but she teaches them the musical terminology as well. My 9 yr old son is not the most enthusiastic learner and Kristy goes above and beyond to make lessons fun (and did I mention how PATIENT she is?!). :) My 14 yr old daughter is very motivated and Kristy allowed her to choose a piece by the Piano Guys for her recital selection! I am amazed at how hard she is working to perfect such a difficult piece. Overall, I can say Kristy is the best instructor we have ever had. Across the board she gets all A's from us!

About Kaia
Hi! My name is Kaia, I'm passionate about teaching students in the way that makes the most sense to them, & inspiring others to reach their potential. I am a singer-songwriter from Denver with a diverse background and years of teaching experience. I studied classical voice at CU Boulder 2008-2010, and songwriting & commercial music business at CU Denver 2010-2013. Teaching full-time since 2013, I LOVE helping students find their best natural sound and how to use their instrument. My strength is teaching fundamental basics in a way anyone can understand, using a variety of ways of thinking and learning. I encourage students to play & sing when they are interested and try composing their own songs. I've played classical piano 23 years, guitar 16 years, and taken voice lessons for 15 years (plus a degree). I also LOVE arranging & composing
and translating this to Ableton and electronic music! Let me know how I can help you!

Kaia helped me so much more than just the guitar. Helped with music theory as well as some vocals. I intend to take more lessons with her after I complete my spring and summer travels. She helped me understand the entire fret board and I am so appreciative of all she helped me with. I would recommend her to beginners and veteran players and singers. She's great.

It has been a dream of mine for a long time to be a full-time piano teacher. I have 25 years experience playing piano and 7 years teaching. I play many other instruments and have an overall passion for music!

Some of my strengths include patience, humor and compassion for others. I want to figure out what makes you tick. What do you want to learn about piano? I am always looking for new and exciting ways to teach piano. Did you know they make color by note coloring books? At the end of the day if I can share even a fraction of my love for music with you and you are able to learn something, that is what gives me true joy.

Heyo! My name is Ben Tyrrell. I am currently a senior in high school. I've had 11 years of formal guitar education, and I've used this formal education to teach myself the ukulele. I've become very proficient with this instrument and I feel comfortable teaching students finger-style techniques as well as strumming patterns.

Students can expect to improve week to week on their ukulele playing skills. These might include: recognizing and playing chords, reading tablature, playing using the finger-style technique, and strumming technique.

I can help any student learn ukulele and unlock their inner musician!
