Thomas G.

Kansas City, MO

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 performe
d 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 such 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.)

I never thought anyone and I mean anyone could get me past the fear of singing. I have over three decades of acting, including a prestigous acting school, but never developed confidence in singing. Thomas taught me. He helped me develop my new voice. Wow! Thank you sir!

Tom is a most excellent vocal instructor

Tom is a wonderful teacher. He is always cheerful and encouraging and positive. He searches for the best selections to match my voice. He helps me work toward the best I can be and doesn't let me "settle" for anything less. Best of all, he is so fun to be with.

This , my first class, was individual and very personalized. Nina is friendly, accessible and very helpful in terms of gently correcting pronunciation, giving little hints to remember words and phrases and speaking of Italian customs and language usages. I'm looking forward to the next 11 lessons!

I have been meeting with Nina twice weekly since mid October.She is very professional, fluent in Italian and knowledgeable about all aspects of Italian grammar. She has provided supplemental materials/worksheets which have helped me better understand the language assignments from my regular class....She is hospitable and kind. Even when I don't know how to write or day something or frequently forget the vocabulary, I never feel intimidated with her. I highly recommend Nina to anyone pursuing learning Italian language.

Jessica N.

Lees Summit, MO

About Jessica

I am a young, vibrant, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Spanish teacher. I have a variety of experience teaching age groups as young as elementary or as seasoned as non-traditional undergraduate student
s. I desire to inspire my students in their journey as Spanish communicators, not just with grammar and vocabulary, but with cultural understanding and real life awareness. I believe that learning Spanish and other languages enhances a person's other disciplines and prepares them for advancement in the classroom, on the job, at home, or abroad. I use my previous experiences as a student both domestic and abroad (in Spain) to bring depth and dimension to every lesson.
