Experienced teacher specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started building your musical future!

About Thomas
Hello Students/Parents

I am an energetic, enthusiastic teacher who cares deeply about the student's musical learning experience.

My music studies began in Louisville with well-regarded teachers John Roy (drumset) and Rick Mattingly (percussion). I later studied music at Bellarmine College and the University of Louisville School of Music. As a professional musician I have shared the bandstand with countless masters of jazz, rock and blues. A partial list includes legend jazz guitarist Jimmy Raney, vocalist Helen Hume (sang with Count Basie), local guitar legend Jeff Sherman, rhythm and blues group Backstreets, and many more. I currently play weekend nights at Volare Restaurant with multi-style group Jazz Vineyard. I do individual dates with Jazzcrafters, regularly record at two local studios, and Sundays I play in a Christian rock group
at St. Francis in the Fields.
My hope is that my passion for music, experience, enthusiasm, and caring attitude will be a winning combination for my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect a teacher who is dedicated to helping the student realize his or her potential. My preference is to combine music reading, technique, and real-world playing experience; encouraging progress, but working at the student's pace. Reading music is important to the music student--since it is the language all of us musicians use. Some students may not care to read, and that is okay. We can work on technique and specific drum styles and patterns. All students are welcome to bring their music preferences to our lessons but I will usually attempt to expand the student's repertoire.
Lesson materials include: method books covering reading, styles, technique; specific songs suggested by either student or teacher; and materials written by the teacher.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in nice office studio which is located on the first floor of our Highlands home. Full keyboard available for the piano lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student will need to have his/her instrument.
I will provide music samples and method books or list of books the student should buy.
Drum set, drums pads, and/or electronic drum set, xylophone, and percussion instruments supplied in teacher's studio.

*** Specialties ***
My strongest genres include jazz, jazz rock, latin jazz, rock, blues, and country but I teach others as well. I help the student build on the basics, creating a strong foundation, and then we branch out... .

I teach beginning piano and General Music using the keyboard. I also teach using the keyboard for song accompaniment.

About Thomas
I am a professional musician who can give instruction on many musical styles ranging from Classical to Folk Music from several different countries. All ages are welcome!
As a student, I was involved for many years as a violist with The Louisville Youth Orchestra, I became a graduate of the Youth Performing Arts School in Louisville, Ky. in 1981 majoring in music and theater. I have since performed in a a broad spectrum of musical involvements including accompanying international folk dance troupes, performing Celtic and traditional music at events in several countries, composing music for, and directing several theatrical productions. At the same time I have been involved in educating children in music in several Community Schools throughout the Eastern U.S.. I now reside in Crestwood, Ky, where where I teach and operate a repair shop
out of my home called 'Hewn from the Mountain Music Cafe''. I also perform in the viola section of the Louisville Philharmonia, and have served as as Public Relations Director on the Board of Directors.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objective is to encourage enthusiasm and diligence in my students towards Music and the Performing Arts, focusing on self-esteem, presentation, and public performance. For strings, I incorporate sight reading with ear training using various acclaimed methods modeled after the Suzuki method, which I am in the process of obtaining certification. I value the importance of ensemble playing, and will orchestrate many such activities.

The TakeLessons.com program has many advantages because it is a completely interactive data sharing system for Teachers, Students and Parents. I believe it will be well worth your investment.

I was very blessed to be on of Tom's students for a few years, working along side him in his shop. I was the untraditional student, an apprentice in a world where such students have become lost. Already a seasoned musician, that didn't mean there wasn't room for me to learn from Thomas. He helped teach me how to play his folk harps, as well as make them and repair them. I learned a great deal of folk traditions, and with his help, stepped outside of my classically trained box. Not to mention, his guidance and support actually gave me the confidence to become a performer, well paid at that. He encouraged me in ways most of my musical teachers failed me...all the more reason to praise his abilities because he was able to help me make many breakthroughs despite many bad teachers over the years. My college education was actually in education, and so, i can proudly say, he was also the most excellent teacher in teaching me how to teach. I was able to witness many of his lessons. Thomas is full of patience, love of music, and enthusiasm...all of which foster any student, no matter what the age or curriculum, to do his or her best. The years I spent with Tom will always be years i remember as extreme growth and fond memories.

Tom McShane has exposed me to a lot of great folk music from a variety of cultures and time periods. He gets you into playing songs right away. This preserves the joy of making music and gives you a sense of accomplishment . I'd taken instrument lessons in the past where the instructor would get all bogged down in technique and I'd never get to play any music, which destroyed my natural joy and motivation. Now I'm regaining it back, so for that I am very grateful.

I encourage my students to pursue all types of music. I like to use “method books” to help with reading and music theory no matter which instrument they choose.

For example, I use many apps for theory, note reading, and rhythm training.

Attention on correct play habits, technique and musical expression in balance. Progressive method, inspiring and supportive teaching environment.

About Elisa
Violin Teacher's Certificate - Sibelius Academy, Finland
Suzuki Teacher Training - Marylhurst University, OR

Classical and Suzuki options - starting Suzuki students as early as 3 yrs old. Teaching Suzuki Books 1-11.
Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels
I am using classical method books including Kayser, Wohlfart, Kreutzer, Mazas, Dont and Paganini Caprices with students looking for more rigorous studies and more advanced skills.
Keeping music and technique in balance - Learn how to enjoy performing - Find your own highest potential - Fall in love with music

*** Lesson Details ***
I am friendly and like to inspire my students to find their own best potential. Suitable challenges are fun and needed to keep the personal progress going on. "No suffering in my studio!" means that the process of learning needs to be enjoyabl
e but at the same time I am asking the students to give their best effort. Setting frequent goals in form of group classes and recitals keeps us in full sail and teach us to enjoy the act of playing both alone and in front of friendly audience.
I teach both classical and Suzuki methods. I like to keep my students musically well fed and encourage exploring music reading and music theory next to practical skills. I stir my students toward high standard personal level in their studies, an ingredient from Finnish cultural climate.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method and classical method, fiddling, beginning jazz, improvising

I just completed my first lesson with Elisa. I felt so good at the end of the lesson. As an adult learner, I am often uncomfortable with my beginner skill levels and end up feeling embarrassed and apologetic when working with a teacher (silly I know). But she did not make me feel this way at all.

She quickly assessed where I was with my playing and identified quick and easy technical practices to enhance my technique as well as took in my own personal goals. I feel super motivated to practice and look forward to my next lesson with her. I'm so glad I found her!

I teach students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical piano skills. I typically use Bastien books, and also incorporate sheet music. My lessons are challenging, and fun!

About Tammy
Hi, I’m Tammy!
I’m good at forming strong personal connections, and my desire is for students to enjoy and excel at playing the piano. I've been teaching private lessons out of my home and at a local music shop, and have loved helping my students learn to play and read music, prepare for recitals, and prepare for solos and accompaniment at their schools and churches. I’m patient, encouraging, and like to see students really understand music and grow in their ability to play. My lessons are challenging, but fun. I like students to choose some of their own music and participate in choosing their direction and pace. I find that playing songs they know and like helps to facilitate at home practice and faster learning, as students enjoy their practice time! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I have 13 years of experie
nce taking piano lessons. During that time I played with my church’s music team, accompanied a choir, and became an experienced soloist and accompanist. I have experience accompanying singers, choirs, violinists, and bands. I additionally competed in music competitions and took home the highest award for piano in the state of Wisconsin, and accompanied several singers who also received highest awards. I was accepted into the University of Wisconsin Madison School of Music, but after my first year chose to shift my focus to the sciences, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Biology, followed by attending Northwestern Health Sciences University where I received a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. After a successful career in chiropractic, I sold my practice to become a homemaker and tutor, and am excited to once again return to my first love, music.
