James L.

Indianapolis, IN

About James

My journey with the piano began when I was 8 years old, learning first by ear, then embarking on formal lessons with the classics, particularly enjoying Beethoven and Scott Joplin. I use my experience
in beginning lessons as a reference point for my lesson plans with my students. I dedicate my time towards learning each individual's strengths and encouraging a lesson plan that incorporates the fundamentals of applied music theory and tailored repertoire which aims to keep the art of musical growth fun and expressive.

Recently completing my Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from the University of Indianapolis in 2016, I have studied piano most recently with renowned pianist Dr. Richard Ratliff, and composition most recently with former William Bolcom protege Dr. John Berners. Former piano teachers include Eugenio Urritia-Borlando in Indianapolis and Dr. Mary Humm in Dallas, TX. Invaluable masterclasses which I have attended include from the notable pianists Beatrice Rana, Keun-A Lee, Ellen Zwilich, and David Gomper.

My performance background includes most recently maintaining a consistent commitment of free-lance work as a classical and jazz pianist, as well as commissioned composer. I have been toured successfully premiering Michael Schelle's solo piano masterwork "Straight, No Lithium", including performances at University of Indianapolis' Ruth Lilly Hall, Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa, Butler University's Edison-Duckwall Recital Hall, and most notably Symphony Space in New York, where I first premiered the work in June 2012. Professional reviews by New York Times' Allan Kozin and the Indianapolis Star's Jay Harvey have lauded performances as "energetic, introspective, eccentric, brash, and assertive" and played with "astonishing vigor and panache...a delightful result." Along with maintaining an active interest in new music and local contemporary art music, my playing continues to be in demand from composers such as graduate students at Butler University. As a jazz pianist, I have played with musicians such as Nick Tucker, Kenny Phelps, Freddie Mendoza, Sean Imboden, and Sophie Faught, and remain an active force in the local jazz scene.

Through my experience and my passion for teaching, my lessons aim towards creating a sense of freedom at the instrument while learning the fundamental concepts of proper piano technique. Instead of just learning the notes, I encourage students to mix their technique with their expressive and interpretive abilities in order to develop a higher sense of playing the instrument. One of my greatest joys is watching my students develop their own unique creativity and reach their personalized goals. In this way, my students can conquer the techniques and the spirit essential to becoming a great musician!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio in my home includes a Kawai MP6, a professionally crafted keyboard for the concert pianist. I live in an apartment on the Southside of Indianapolis, right off campus from the University of Indianapolis.

*** Specialties ***
Piano Performance, technique, music composition, song-writing, music theory, jazz theory/improvisation/composition

Anna K.

Muncie, IN

About Anna

Professional, active musician will share the joy of playing music with the students. You can count on having fun, effective lessons, and real results fast!

I was born in Cracow, Poland. From an ear
ly age I had a deep interest in all types of music. I was encouraged by my parents and quickly developed a talent. I began my musical education at the age of seven studying piano. I studied at The Frederic Chopin Academy of music in Warsaw, Poland and then at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University where I received a Bachelor of Music Degree in French Horn performance. Later I received a Master of Music in French Horn Performance and post Master Certificate, both from the DePaul University. I am an active freelancing musician in the Chicago area. (Chamber Opera of Chicago, Northbrook Symphony Orchestra, Oak Park and River forest Orchestra, Skokie Symphony, Lira Ensemble, Highland Park).
I have been teaching piano, music theory and French horn in the Chicago area for five years. I enjoy working with both children and adults.
To broaden my knowledge about teaching I completed courses: Studio Teaching as a Career, Teaching Excellence, and Brass concepts at DePaul University.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will learn to play piano or horn in a pleasant atmosphere. Additionally they will learn elements of music theory so they can quickly start to play on their own. This will broaden their understanding of music and they will be able play pieces they like. I have method books and studies for any level of playing, but students are welcome to bring their own. I think anyone can learn to play and I can help to achieve this dream. I recommend the book by Daniel Coyle: The Talent Code. Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown. Here's How.

*** Studio Equipment ***
DePaul University - regular pianos available rooms reserved
At Home Studio- Casio keyboard in living room, french horn,
seating for parents.
In case of horn students they would have to have their own mouthpiece and later on their own instrument. I have breathing equipment to help with playing as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My method of transportation would be CTA and walking :)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in fun and effective teaching. I teach piano, french horn, music theory, ear training. Music is fun and this is how I teach.

I loved Ms. Anna's enthusiasm and constructive criticism. I have been playing horn for 7 years, and this was my first lesson. I have a ways to go, but I loved how she was willing to help me and give me tips in ways that you wouldn't get in your typical band class. I am definitely looking forward to our lessons!! 10/10 recommend for anyone looking for lessons, whether it is your first or your 100th

Anna is a great teacher. We started off with 10 lessons to give our 11 year old son a head start as he was keen to switch from Trombone to French Horn. With Anna's help, he made it! French Horn is a difficult instrument to play compared to other brass woodwind instruments, and finding Anna to help our son has been really beneficial. We highly recommend Anna and we will be signing up for more lessons. In addition, to those who are considering Online lessons, they have been great. We have been using a good webcam (Logitech from Amazon) together with Skype and it has worked out. Thank you!

Kenji Luis T.

Indianapolis, IN

About Kenji Luis

I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school
through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

Maria is a wonderful teacher. Technological difficulties with online sessions was the only reason for not giving five stars.
