Jared is an excellent teacher. I am 62 and took lessons from Jared for about 6 months. He individualizes his lessons, he is very knowledgeable in every aspect of music. He communicates and gives as much or as little information as you desire. We also covered a lot of theory as part of the lessons which I enjoyed.

He has a nice manor and is respectful.
I recommend him highly.

If you are looking for a truly caring, passionate and dedicated teacher and want to have a rare and life-changing experience in your lessons, then look no further!

This unique combination of abilities and areas of expertise offers me the chance to help my students to grow, transform, and awaken their gifts on every level.

Just an all-around pleasure!

Eva is an incredible vocal coach as well as a confidence coach. The things she taught me and had me do not only strengthened my ability as a singer, but made me more comfortable with developing my own voice and performing in front of others.

She is also very personable and flexible in helping me with whatever I want to do. She isn't the type to try and cram material down your throat that doesn't interest you or in some way help you to get where you want to go.

I always look forward to my next lesson and wish that I could afford longer ones because I feel like I'm constantly growing whenever I'm there.
Alison S. Louisville, KY

About Alison

I'm passionate about music and love sharing that through performance and teaching. I received my degree in viola performance from the University of Louisville School of Music in May 2010. I studied under Chien-Ju Liao along with many other great violists in the Louisville community. I've also had the pleasure of playing with many quartets, chamber ensembles and orchestras including Louisville Youth Orchestra, All-State, the UofL Symphony, and the Louisville Orchestra. Some of my greatest moments involve playing in Carnegie Hall and premiering a world-class ballet performance with the UofL Symphony Orchestra. Music has been a part of my life since I was little and I can't imagine life without it. Along with viola, I also study, play and teach piano and violin. *** Lesson Details *** ...

Playing the piano is fun.

The first lessons Alison coached me on the fundamentals of piano playing, but also spent a good time listening to me play. The following lessons she added a songbook, delved deeper into the core course book, and added Beethoven (which I love). In short she had adapted our lessons to her evaluation of my ability and my feedback to build a course trajectory that would keep the lessons engaging, challenging, but fun.

Overall she is a great instructor and you feel no pressure playing in front of her.

Samuel Y. Louisville, KY

About Samuel

My name is Samuel Y. I am 21 years old and have been playing trombone since I was 11. I was a very successful high school trombonist having made All-District 5 years in a row and All-State Two years in a row. I also was part of a matching band that won many championships and the concert band I was in won a national championship. I also was a music major at the University of Louisville. I am wanting to start helping beginners to intermediate players because I know just having someone to guide you asking helps someone progress so much faster, not only that I want to give the gift music to others and have it touch their life as it has mine. A little informed consent, I do not have a degree in music and my rates reflect that; however, I consider myself to be at college level and can ...

6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time

Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano.
