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. Simply put, we suggest you learn how to play an instrument or sing with the proper technique by taking our Lexington music lessons with one of our certified TakeLessons music teachers. At TakeLessons we can teach you how to play the guitar, drums, bass, piano, violin and even sing, act or dance. Of course if you are an experienced musician and you want to make a career out of music, then you may want to consider our Lexington music lessons that cover music theory, performance, recording and even songwriting. With our talented and committed music instructors, we guarantee that you’ll be equipped with a solid musical background that’ll help you kick-start your career.

So if you want to be the next Richard Hell, be sure to join in on one of TakeLessons’ Lexington music lessons. Give us a call and let our student counselors help you book your first lessons with us. If you don’t find your experience exceptional, we’ll gladly refund the full amount you paid after your first lesson.

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!

Great instructor, very helpful, personable, positive, talented at singing herself, and flexible with scheduling! I am an adult student (with no previous singing experience) wishing to attain what I consider a decent singing voice and have been taking lessons for about 3.5 months now, and am well on my way!

A pleasure to work with

Pat is a very kind and patient teacher, she makes me feel comfortable to sing and perform, which helps me to gain confidence. She is very supportive of my musical interest outside of voice lessons as well. Thank you Pat for being such a great teacher!

Steven S.

Lexington, KY

About Steven

I've been playing musical instruments for 30 years. As a youngster 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 I loved honing my skills. 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 s
ervices 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.

Pianist Spotlight: How Ben Folds Brought the Piano Back to Pop
