Music Lessons in Lexington, KY

Do you know a single man from Lexington, Kentucky helped shape the face of rock? If you didn’t, that person was Richard Hell, the front-man of the early punk rock band Richard Hell and the Voidoids. Their 1977 song, entitled Blank Generation, inspired other punk bands so much that it was named one of the 500 songs that shaped rock. With that said, it’s clear that it doesn’t matter whether you live in New York or Kentucky. If you have the passion and drive you can be one of America’s founding musical acts.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to revolutionize music genres then we don’t doubt it for a minute. However, we do suggest you first gain a firm background in music and your instrument of choice.

About Patricia

I graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in music education, K-12. Following I spent a year teaching piano and voice in England and then moved back to Colorado and opened a home studi
o. I have had the privilege to raise my daughter while working in the home as a music teacher. We later moved to Kentucky where I again started a home studio. I now have over 30 years of teaching experience, specializing in piano and voice lessons for beginners to advanced for students of all ages. I also have taught basic guitar.

My teaching style is very "laid back". I am a teacher who desires her students to learn and enjoy piano. The curriculum will be chosen individually for each student and if students are transferring from another teacher, they can use their current curriculum. Beginning students will learn the basics of piano and theory; intermediate students will advance their knowledge of playing and theory.

Students will be invited to participate in a variety of incentive programs throughout the year. We also preform 2-3 times a year at the yearly Formal Recital, Nursing home program, and our Christmas student program.

Hope to meet you soon. I would love to introduce you to the wonderful world of music!

Steven S.

Frankfort, KY

About Steven

I've been playing musical instruments for 35 years. As a child I started playing the trumpet, then other brass instruments. That love for music carried on into college, where I started singing for t
he first time. I loved performing, and developed a deep desire to get better in every aspect. So I started taking voice and piano lessons. Though I got a degree in something completely different, music was my preference and I started leading music programs full-time at churches. It was there that I saw an opportunity to teach others how to sing and play. I picked up the guitar so I can lead our more modern worship services and began teaching that, as well. I was given many opportunities to lead music and perform all over the country and all the while, I kept honing my craft. I decided to go back to school for a second Master's degree in vocal performance. There I learned all about the anatomy of the voice, how to use it properly and to teach others to perform at their very best. I did a great deal of piano performance along the way and applied that style to all the lessons I teach. I've had students as young as 4 and as old as 77. It is never too early or too late to begin learning. I am extremely passionate about music and performance and will pass that spirit along to you, at whatever level you play and in whatever style you prefer.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher. You are paying for the time. If you want to spend that time learning one thing, I will pick up on that. If you are motivated and practice throughout the week, you will move along briskly and will become very proficient in a timely fashion. Because I teach music theory along the way, and because I know most people want to learn how to play "something useful" in the first couple weeks, I can get most people strumming or accompanying themselves on the piano in as little as two weeks! Vocalists will learn proper technique and will see an instant improvement in their tone, breathing, and posture. I also teach them how to use their voice to sing in harmony, as well as a lead instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
studio: piano, guitar amps, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the curriculum. They need to provide their instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach in any style. If I'm not familiar with it, I will become so in order to best serve my students.

Megan definitely is an amazing vocal coach! She was very patient with me with my hectic schedule and unexpected technical errors. I had some issues with internet connections and she was very understanding and helpful getting it all figured out. The atmosphere is calming it makes it seem like she was an old friend and we were talking like we haven't seen one another in a while. She was open to communicate with, heading all my concerns and questions. She is very straightforward about what the lessons are going to be and how each lesson will go. She challenged me with different songs that challenged my voice in different ways. Megan is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for great lessons! Thank you Megan!

My daughter never received a full 30 minute lesson. The teacher always ended early, one time after only 17 minutes, promising to make up time but never did. My daughter was asked, during the lessons, to look online for songs/lyrics to use that day. The teacher never had music prepared. The first day we started, the audio did not work properly on Skype for the first five minutes (our fault). The teacher now calls that "incredible technical issues" and blames us for the less than 30 minute lessons saying we should have communicated better. The teacher is paid for a 30 minute lesson, so why should the student have to ask for it? My other daughter takes online lessons on the same computer and her teacher has no problems. Perhaps because her teacher is not teaching on a cell phone! Megan is a nice person, but I expect a teacher to be prepared and put an effort into the class, not sit on the couch holding a cell phone while the student has to look up mucis on You Tube.

Alyssa did a great job relating to my 14 year old and definitely has the gift of encouraging. Though she is young she is quite accomplished and has obviously been studying for years. Rachel came away excited about the lesson and even about her homework.
