Daniel D.

Kansas City, KS

About Daniel

Dan is a teacher and guitarist from Kansas City, KS. As a teenager he studied blues and jazz with former B.B. King sideman Dwight Foster. This background aided him when he took classes in jazz improvisation and music composition at the University of Kansas. At KU, he started giving guitar lessons and teaching English Literature to help pay tuition. He also joined the blues-rock/metal hybrid Inphobic, a group that went on to play with Carlos Santana, Everlast, and Cheap Trick among others.

After finishing his MA at Pittsburg State University, he returned to Kansas City and began te
aching in the Kansas City, KS school district. His five years of high school teaching (to go along with another three at the college level) has showed him that being a great teacher is both the greatest challenge and the greatest reward. As a result, he has dedicated himself to combining that passion for teaching with his love for the guitar and music.

Over the last few years, he has developed guitar curriculum that both teaches students things they want to know as well as how to communicate with other musicians in almost any musical capacity. He frequently shows up at local jam sessions and plays studio sessions.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are very relaxed but still move at a fast pace. I realize that not all students learn at the same rate and in the same manner and I do my best to accommodate whatever the needs of the student might be. Students will learn a variety of styles but there always be an emphasis on their specific interests as it relates to the guitar.

A beginning student will be given a solid background in theory and in reading music as well as learning songs that they want to learn. In three months, the beginning student will be able to play basic songs and read music, as well as begin to apply theory to a variety of musical styles. In six months, the beginning student will be developing more difficult techniques on the guitar, beginning to learn the art of lead guitar and learning more complicated tunes. Intermediate and advanced students are welcome too, but they may want to focus on specific styles, techniques or songs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitar, amp, etc.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, amp, etc. The student should contact the instructor if s/he needs to borrow a guitar for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Blues, Metal, Jazz, Improvisation, and Composition at all levels beginner, intermediate and advanced.

Dan is a fantastic instructor. He is very personable, patient, upbeat, and has made my guitar learning lots of fun with a new song almost every week, and new exercises that help me get better. With lots of travel, and little kids I haven't had much practice time, but Dan is very encouraging and is able to help me with song choices that make we want to pick up the guitar every time I can. I would strongly encourage you to seek Dan for learning guitar - you will be happy that you did.

I have had two other guitar teachers in the past. Daniel far exceeds any of the previous two! I wouldn't hesitate for a nano-second to recommend him to others! If you are looking for a good guitar teacher, look no further.

Dan is a passionate teacher who makes the lesson fun!

Dan is patient and a great teacher. My son started learning how to play electric guitar with Dan and has developed a lot of progress in the past five months. Dan always shares the stories when teaching the lessons to make the lessons enjoyable. He has adapted his teaching style and lessons to suit my 7 year old beginner.

He is always on time, flexible and works with our schedule when we occasionally have conflicts. He encourages my son to ask questions and practice the variety of songs he teaches. I will not hesitate to recommend Dan if someone is looking for a knowledgeable and great teacher who cares about his students and teaches them what they want to know.

Great lesson

It's only been one lesson, but it is quite clear that Barbara knows her stuff. She has an air of comfort and confidence in her teaching that can only be achieved with years of experience. Barbara makes you instantly feel at home and makes an effort to get to know you before jumping into instruction. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with this great teacher!

Marci S.

Lenexa, KS

About Marci

Welcome to my studio! Here is a recent blurb about me:

Marci began her classical piano studies at 8 years old, in the private studio of concert pianist Elaine de San Miguel. In addition to recitals, concerts, camps and master classes, Marci branched out into performing in a variety of venues, as an accompanist for vocalists, instrumentalists, choirs and musicals. When she wasn't playing the piano for people, she was taking voice lessons, singing in both traditional & show choirs, and performing in musical theater. Her favorite TV show is currently "Phineas & Ferb"! (Great music on that sh
ow, if you hadn't noticed!)

Marci holds a teaching license in the state of Kansas, and is classified as "highly qualified" according to the No Child Left Behind Law. She is currently working on finishing a PhD in developmental and behavioral psychology, and for 5 years taught Child Behavior & Development classes at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Because of her education and experience teaching in public schools, she is unique in that she has an understanding of children and young adults and how they learn. She encourages her students to work towards their goals, but is patient and knows when a skill is currently beyond the child's grasp due to his or her individual development. Every child learns and develops differently, so each person's lessons are highly individualized.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a relaxed teaching style, a sense of humor, and lots of patience! I absolutely love the one-on-one teaching experience I get with teaching private lessons. Students tend to feel welcome and comfortable in my home studio. A beginning student will be surprised to be reading and playing music within just a few weeks!

For beginning piano curriculum, I use different piano book series, although lately I have been focusing on the Piano Adventures series by Faber & Faber. I also use a series called A Dozen A Day, technical exercises for the piano which teaches a little theory along the way. For older students, I like Czerny and Hanon exercises to strengthen fingers and hands. There are all kinds of on-line resources that I consult for ideas. Lessons are a combination of theory, learning the keyboard, and learning to read music.

For intermediate piano students, I will determine their level of musical understanding and design an individualized curriculum to address areas of improvement, and to build on each student's strengths.

In addition to the mechanics of music, I try to instill an appreciation for all types and genres of music in my students. I strongly believe that the most competent and interesting musicians are the ones who are familiar with music from all walks of life.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Guitar, Computer, Music Software

*** Specialties ***
Piano-- Keyboard basics, music theory, playing technique, sight-reading music

ALL genres of music are welcome in my studio!

Marci is fabulous with senior citizens!!!

I am 60 years old, retired, and have always wanted to take piano lessons. Our perfect grandson, Max, has been taking lessons with Marci for a couple of years, and his brother, our other perfect grandson, Gibson, will be starting soon. Their mom recommended Marci with no hesitation. I do the same!!

I am a different student for Marci than she is used to. She has the gift of a true teacher to be able to teach any age. (As a retired teacher of 35 years, I can attest to this professionally as well as personally!) She has the gift of dealing with any age and any ability.

I would recommend Marci with my whole heart and no hesitation whatsoever!!

Michael R.

Kansas City, KS

About Michael

My name is Michael R. I am a drummer, percussionist, guitarist, and musician. I have been playing the drums for 15 years, the guitar for 10 years, and I've just reached my 5th year of teaching as of 2014. Unlike most extraordinary musicians, I'm not necessarily 'naturally gifted.' I got to where I am as a musician by practicing and studying for years and with hard work and determination, anyone and everyone can be a killer musician! When I first started, I never caught on quite as quick as others, so I understand completely that patience is the most important aspect of becoming a musician. If
you're looking for a stress free, patient, learn at your own pace learning experience, you've come to the right guy!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am not a strict teacher at all. I feel that learning music should be a fun and exciting! That being said, students can expect a more relaxed, patient, and stress free learning experience. Though I am laid back and patient, I am very thorough and feel that the fundamentals should not be skipped or over looked. I will teach everything that there is to know when becoming a drummer, guitarist, and ultimately a musician.

The most important thing to remember is that learning an instrument should be a fun experience, and I intend to keep it that way!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I've got an electric drum set and guitar as well as an amplifier. I don't have my own studio, so our lessons will be in the comfort of your own home!

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Blues, Funk, and RnB drumming styles as well as folk, country, and rock n' roll guitar styles.

Thomsons drum lessons

My son Thomson LOVED drum lessons with Michael. We are sorry to be leaving Kansas City and unable to continue with him. He taught Thomson how to play some of his favorite songs, and inspired him to learn about other types of music as well. Because Michael can also play the guitar, they were able to jam together which Thomson loved. He progressed very quickly because he had such a good time. He said that Michael was very patient and nice, and made him feel confident about his playing. We really hope that when we are back in town next summer that Michael will be available to teach again. We'd give him 10 stars if we could!

Lisa is a great teacher! She is kind and encouraging. She balanced challenging pieces with things that are purely fun to play to keep my daughter engaged. Whenever my daughter was having a bad day and it was time for her violin lesson, she always came back happy because Lisa is so cheerful and fun to be around. My daughter grew leaps and bounds musically in one year's time under Lisa's instruction.

My son has been taking violin lessons with Lisa for well over a year now, and continues to steadily progress. He looks forward to his weekly lesson and is eager to practice in between the times he spends with her. Lisa is clearly passionate about music and her students. While she does have a high expectation of her students, she has a teaching style that makes learning the necessary skills fun.

Lisa has a very warm and inviting personality. My son is 11 years old and sees Lisa not only as a teacher, but as a friend.

Lisa has always been eager to accommodate any special needs or requests we may have.
