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.

Patricia R.

Lexington, KY

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 studio. 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 desir
es 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!

About Zara

I believe lessons should be fun and motivating! I like to incorporate a variety of music and games and to teach my students how to teach themselves one day.

I earned a BM and MM in Viola Performance and Pedagogy. I have over twenty five years experience teaching private lessons as well as 10 years coaching chamber music and orchestra. I've also gained extensive performing experiences that have taken me to Canada, Japan, Israel, Jordan, and Egypt. I've performed both classical and rock styles and have been privileged to play with Johnny Mathis, Rod Stewart, Josh Groban, Clay Aiken, Mannhe
im Steamroller and the Transiberian Orchestra.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very encouraging teacher who recognizes that all students will have individual goals and lesson needs. I support each student to reach their desired potential. I teach in the Traditional Style which introduces note reading almost immediately. Recitals are held regularly.

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 the 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 o
ur 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.

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.
