I started playing violin at 3 years old. Wichita State University gave me the opportunity to get my Music Ed degree and start teaching lessons. I have taken over 500 lessons myself and played in many heavy gigging bands playing gigs almost every weekend. Improvising, Country, Jazz, and Rock are my specialties but I have played lots of Blues, Funk, and Latin jazz as well.

About Rob

Make sure you contact me about scheduling. I have other students and a job that sometimes changes week to week. I may have other times available. Let me know.

great first lesson. Personable and informative.

Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced drum-set player interested in learning how to keep a beat, how to set-up a drum-set, how to tune drums, how to play fills...actually you're here because you want to be a Rockstar, don't you? Ah. I see. This should be easy then.

I started playing drum-set professionally as a freshmen in high school and have never stopped. It was my first true love, and my way into my own musical voice. I also sing while performing drums, so if that's something you're interested in getting better at I have plenty of experience to help you lead from behind the set.

Whether you are planning on joining/starting a band, using it as accompaniment to someone else, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your Rockstar drummer potential! If you have any questions, please message me!

About Mikala

Want to learn how to play or sing your favorite song? Are you interested in learning how to write your own songs? Since the start of my teaching career 4 years ago, my lessons have expanded to include guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, drums, singing, and even songwriting! I'm eager to help you find

Mikala has been providing lessons for my son Ben, and she has been amazing!! I love that she is not limited at all in her abilities to cross over her knowledge as a vocalist, piano player, percussion and strings! And her perspective as a professional musician is incredible! She is so energetic, my son is always engaged! Thank you Miki!!

I teach violin and viola lessons to students of all ages (including adults!) and skill levels. Lessons will be catered to you, whether you want to start from the beginning with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or have a tune from the radio you've been wanting to learn. I believe learning to play an instrument is more than just learning notes and rhythms-- it's about developing yourself in all aspects of life. Here you can develop life skills including curiosity, dedication, responsibility, patience and so much more, all while having fun and enjoying yourself at the same time.

I found Laura on takelessons and decided to give her a try.
4 lessons later, I'm highly confident. Fluent in english, and I can sew together designer pieces that would make anyone's jaw drop.

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …

From the various types of hand stitches to seam finishes, sewing instructor Cathy G. is here to help you master the basics.  Modern sewing machines have all but eliminated the need for hand sewing.
