I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advanced students who'd like fine tuning. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you'r

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.

Eva M.

Louisville, KY

About Eva

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! I am a professional musician, I sing, play piano, and teach both voice and piano lessons.

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.

As a teacher, my number one goal for each of my students is to foster confidence in one's self and one's abilities, and to grow one's skills in and passion for music. As I appr
eciate and expect that each student's goals and interests in music will be different, I approach each student and their lessons accordingly. Whether my students are young or old; whether they view their lessons as a just-for-fun hobby; or whether they wish to pursue a serious music career - I am happy to facilitate all of this and more, as we work together to reach their goals.

Thanks to my rigid classical background in music, I have the technical knowledge and skills to ensure that students create music in a way that is based in proper technique and strong musicianship. I also treat music lessons as a means of helping students to express themselves, explore their creativity, to heal, and to move towards being the best version of themselves. I take a truly holistic approach in my music lessons, and hope that it will be a therapeutic, empowering and transformative experience for each of my students. I offer each student a fun, warm, loving environment, in which to find their own unique style and sound, and to celebrate themselves and their gifts.

In addition to my work as a musician and teacher, I am also a psychic healer. I am a trained and certified Reiki Master and highly gifted intuitive. Through my work as a psychic healer, I not only offer my clients the benefit of energy healing, but also act as a channel and medium for clients to receive healing messages from their angels, spirit guides, and loved ones who have crossed into spirit. My intuitive gifts and love of healing impact and inform all of the work that I do, and as a music teacher, allows me to offer a truly unique, holistic, and healing experience to each of my students.

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 Symp
hony 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 ***
I'm not a really strict teacher but I do encourage my students to push themselves and really make the most of their practice time, especially if they have busy schedules. I believe in customizing my teaching style to my student's needs and desires. I give positive feedback, while never sacrificing constructive feedback.

After 3 months with a beginning Viola, Violin, or Piano student, I expect you to be able to read the notes (without having to write them all in), understand basic rhythms, have learned how to play a scale (or more), and have completed a few of songs.

After 6 months, I expect that my students will have relative ease with reading their music, playing with hands together on piano, and starting to master basic bowing techniques and coordination on Violin and Viola.

Learning an instrument is difficult, but so rewarding, and with the right teacher, can be a wonderful experience. I want my students to have that wonderful experience, I am encouraging, enthusiastic and I make my teaching style as comprehensive and interesting as possible!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room, grand piano, room for parents to wait on a couch or chair, music stand, metronome

*** Travel Equipment ***
music, instrument, shoulder rest and rosin (violin and viola)

*** Specialties ***
I mainly focus on classical. As I teach, I incorporate music theory so that my students may have a better understanding of how the music is structured. I also teach popular music for my students that what to learn some music from their favorite bands!

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.

Chris G.

Louisville, KY

About Chris

I am a working pianist/keyboardist/instructor in the Louisville area. I graduated from the University of Louisville's Jazz Studies Program in December 2013. During my time at UofL, I studied Brazilian music in Sao Paulo and Brasilia for 6 months. My current professional work includes playing in a Soul/R&B group, smaller jazz ensembles, and solo piano for various restaurants/private events. I enjoy playing a wide variety of music, from Jazz and Classical to Pop/Rock music of the past 60 years. I started teaching music privately during my undergraduate degree, and have experience in directing sm
all and large groups as they prepare for musicals, wedding dates, song-and-dance competitions, etc. I look forward to teaching students of all ability levels and am comfortable accepting beginning students with no prior experience. For students who already have some playing experience, I have a lot of professional/practical knowledge to offer.
