Barry T.

Las Vegas, NV

Piano instruction from beginners through advanced. Developing your playing skills to achieve the levels of performance you aspire to and develop confidence along the way.

About Barry

I have almost 30 years of experience teaching voice, working with choral groups, voice students as well as classroom music instruction. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Music Education as well as a Masters degree in music from an accredited school of music and have been performing both as a soloist and in vocal performance groups since I was a teenager. I bring to the vocal/music studio all of this experience as well as a heart to pass along this experience to others that desire to share the song that is in their heart. If it is your desire to sing, play the keyboard or guitar, please get in tou
ch with me!

*** Lesson Details ***
When a student gets started with me , wherever their interest lies, I work to discover where they are on their musical journey, discuss some goals they would like to set for themselves and put a teaching and learning plan into motion.

For vocalists my primary goal is to assist anyone who is looking to improve the tonal quality and strength of their singing or speaking voice while reducing vocal tension and voice fatigue.

I facilitate singers of any level, age or style who seek to improve breath support, diction, range, tone quality, and ease of singing. This is achieved through a variety of singing exercises, fun vocal drills and creative singing games that we do in lesson time and with instruction on what to do at home.

For individuals seeking to develop basic musical understandings in theory, keyboard skills and guitar, I endeavor to start with were they are and take them to where they desire to be as a musician; opening up doors of music understanding and performance skills that help them on their musical journey.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard/Piano, Sound system, computer

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a portable Keyboard if needed for in home keyboard lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Children's Voice and Vocal Techniques for all ages. Beginning piano and Keyboard basics.

Mark L.

Las Vegas, NV

You will be guided through method books by me and use supplemental materials I create to help you fill voids you may have to reach appropriate levels in your playing. You will get some popular and classical and Baroque training.I have been teaching piano for 8 years. You will be able to use the piano for personal goals as well as critical level demands. I want to be your next instructor.

About Mark

I teach according to your individual needs. I help you become successful on piano, violin, viola, bass, guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is
the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and skills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing music available to many. It is an inherited right and gift to enjoy a lifetime of personal satisfaction from playing a musical instrument. I love to help students build confidence and make progress. I help them problem solve by going through problems with them. I teach "how to think" and how to become a life long learner of the instrument. I love the challenge of finding ways to help students become successful at every step of the way. I am excited and enthused to be apart of student progress. I am influenced by many 20th Century performers including Van Cliburn, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Erroll Garner, Yudi Menuhin, Issac Stern and Horowitz among others. I am passionate in my teaching about providing an effective solution to my student's needs.

I am a professional educator who works with children and has the patience to help them. I am a performer who has over 30 years of public experience in solo playing as well as ensemble work. I have performed at Nordstrom for nine years, and performed at many private functions. I have performed classical as well as jazz music as part as my performance experience. I have taught private lessons for well over 10 years. I'm sorry, as of Summer 2016 I do not travel to student locations. I teach at my studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in personalizing your approach to the strangeness of the instrument. You need to learn much about posture, and proper tone production within the first year. Method books are not "how to" books. You need a teacher to guide you toward becoming familiar with the instrument. You also need to learn how to listen to the sounds you make as you play. To develop "musical independence" you need to become musically literate, develop tone production skills, and internalize a steady beat. Rhythm and tone are basic concepts that must be mastered to maximize pleasure in playing your instrument. Learning how to problem solve is another skill I teach so you can help yourself toward progress.
I believe in using the instrument in daily activities such as playing "Happy Birthday" at family get together. Christmas Songs or Hanukkah Songs can bring much joy during December family parties.
A musician in the house brings much joy during holidays and celebrations; and the families are brought closer together. Memories are created and last forever. Playing an instrument is exciting and expresses what can not be said using words. I believe in teaching students based on their strengths, and building upon them. I am excited to help you learn!!

You can advance quickly if you are taught to listen to yourself and use common sense, and make sense of the music theory I will teach you.I will guide you every step of the way to understand how music works. Music lessons are fun and enjoyable. I am pleased to guide you through your learning every step of the way. My students in Las Vegas have had much success with my teaching and guidance. I will succeed where others fail. You will reap the benefits of my professional instruction.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano 5'1', Digital Piano 88 Keys, Violin, Viola, Bass Guitar ( 5 String Fretless), electric guitar (Fender), Upright Bass 3/4 Size French/German Bows.
I also have instruments to loan out to new students. They include; Full Size Violin, 3/4 Size Violin, Viola, Various Guitars, and various Keyboards including 88 Key Digital Piano.

Edward E.

Las Vegas, NV

I teach note reading, technique, theory, composition and performance.

About Edward

My name is Edward and I have been playing music most of my life. I was involved in every form of music education that I could find, and took private lessons on guitar and piano for ten years. During this time, I learned that I improved when I performed music that I liked. I attended the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY and received a B.S. in Studio Music in 1996. I then moved to San Diego, CA and started my own business teaching music. The lessons were taught at the students' homes and I incorporated the students' interests in teaching. I have also performed for many years and have written
many songs that have been recorded and performed.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is unique; I never teach the same way for everyone. The main objectives I teach include performance, reading, ear training, theory, composition and improvisation. I find that playing examples of music that you like is the best way to improve skills. I will recommend books that best suit your style and level. The main styles include (but not limited to) rock, blues, classical, pop, jazz and country. Please contact me if you have any other questions about my teaching methods.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha 88 key weighted action digital piano with recording features. I also have music stands and amps for guitars. We have a smoke and pet free home. I also have a large collection of sheet music and music books available for lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will travel to your home. Clark County, NV

*** Specialties ***
Music, Guitar, Piano, Electric Bass

Oliver B.

Las Vegas, NV

Chords, Major and minor scales, Reading and writing music (if wanted) Rhythm, Articulation, Dynamics, Fingerings, Finger technique, etc.

About Oliver

Hello! I'm an all around musician having just moved from Chicago IL. I have 15 years experience playing drums, 7 years experience playing piano, and 6 years experience playing guitar. Through my understanding of these instruments, I've developed a thorough sense for the fundamentals of music.

Along with writing, recording, and performing, I have a deep passion for teaching. I value making lessons fun, challenging, and rewarding. Learning music should not only teach you how to improve on your instrument, but it should give you valuable skills that can help you in life. I do my best to pro
vide this instruction all while creating a positive and fun experience.

After graduating high school, I earned a degree in Music Education with a minor in Jazz Studies from Elmhurst College. During my years in college, I was able to perform in different ensembles such as Band, Choir, Vocal Jazz, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz combos, and Electric Guitar ensemble. Graduating in June 2013, I began teaching both privately and in schools.

With such a broad skill set and a love for teaching, my goal is to provide great instruction for anyone who is willing to learn.

***Lesson Details***

All lessons are documented by me through a notebook kept by the student. Important concepts, musical graphs, musical exercises, and weekly goals are added to the notebook each week. Fundamentals of Rhythm, Pitch, and Tone are emphasized for all instruments.

Lessons are goal oriented, fun, and exciting. Any musical challenge is addressed from different angles in order to find a solution. I like to use "jamming" (improvising together) as a way for students to get better while having fun. I can jam with the student through playing different instruments.

All musical lessons are open to what the student wants to learn.

*Students need to provide at least 24hr notice for a lesson cancelation in order to be eligible to have the lesson made up, otherwise the lesson will not be made up.

Aaron G.

Henderson, NV

I mainly teach the Alfred method while buttressing my lessons with theory and techniques learned from college; however, I will use whichever method the student is most comfortable with. I like to have fun with it and make sure the student is enjoying his or her time playing and practicing the piano so there is a lasting connection with the instrument.

About Aaron

My goal is to spread the love of music and music theory to as many people as I can. I have been playing piano for the past 15 years and have had great teachers from whom I've learned great playing, composing, and teaching techniques. I have been playing guitar for 10 years as well. I'm in an alternative rock band, The Perks, based out of Las Vegas, and have experience composing and playing multiple instruments. I have a thorough understanding of music theory and hope to share what I know with my students. I'm a student at UNLV, I tutor autistic kids, and I love music.

Our 12 year-old daughter has been a student of Aaron's for several months now. She had wanted to learn guitar. We learned not to force lessons on her (did not work in the past). She practices throughout the week and looks forward to her lessons with Aaron. We highly recommend Aaron.
