Shane L. Milwaukee, WI

My approach to teaching is welcoming and encouraging, but I also set [reasonably] high expectations for students. I believe everyone has potential to become skilled at whatever they're passionate about, but it takes diligence, patience, and practice to get there. I make sure to supplement that process with plenty of inspiration, whether that means listening to great recordings, suggesting certain live performances, or learning to play like the artists a student admires. Any meaningful learning experience is accompanied by curiosity, joy, struggles, and ultimately, fulfillment. I strive to provide my students with a balance of these elements.

About Shane

With 17 years of professional experience as a musician (multi-instrumentalist, producer, recording engineer) a bachelor's degree in English literature and education, and 10 years experience as a public school teacher, coach, lessons instructor, etc., I am a proficient educator in each of these areas. My musical focus is in the styles of folk, jazz, and classical; my theatrical focus is in Improv comedy and stage acting, and for English/language arts I specialize in literature, reading, composition and public speaking. Currently I work full time as a musician, producer, and recording engineer. When I'm not on the road, I love to fill my home life with teaching lessons or tutoring. I began studying percussion at age 6, and mostly learned jazz and classical until late high school, when I

I work with singers of varying levels to develop characters for their selections, be it opera or music theatre. We work through the process that is needed to develop a character, including language translation, subtext, and performance practice. We can also work through overcoming performance anxiety.

About Kirstin

*** Travel Equipment *** I can bring music books and a music stand for their music. I expect the student to have some sort of piano or keyboard that we can work with. For online lessons, I have a piano but ask that students have a camera and microphone on computer. Students must have rehearsal copies of music and may need to purchase books after a period of time. *** Specialties *** I specialize in classical voice. I can also teach in popular music and Broadway theatre styles. I have studied some Alexander Technique in my own training and seek to incorporate those teachings into lessons. Having dealt with voice issues in my own vocal training, I am comfortable working with students who may be coming off of voice trauma. I also teach other styles of music, including pop, country, and ...

Kirstin took a long time to respond to my requesting lessons (I actually had to call customer support to get her to respond). Then she rescheduled my first lesson twice, so that my first lesson would have been three weeks after signing up. I got a new teacher before that lesson. I never had a lesson with her, she might be great, I never got to find out.

Best Teacher Ever!

I have been taking classical guitar lessons with Sara for almost a year now, and I can honestly say she is by far the most talented, positive, patient teacher I have ever had! And being a teacher of 26 years myself, that is quite a compliment to her. I will be taking lessons with Sara as long as I possibly can! Thanks for sharing your talent and passion with me. You are simply the best!

Compassionate Coach

Sara has the ability to push you to be your best with positive reinforcement. My daughter Isaly is only 11 and has some talent to sing however Sara is teaching her control, breathing and opening her up to other genres of music. It is very refreshing to have such a talented vocal coach teach in a modern way. Thank you!

About Monica

I am a flutist, keyboardist, vocalist, director, composer, arranger, and educator who has performed in chamber ensembles specializing in Baroque repertoire since 1998. I have over twenty years of professional flute and piano performance as well as instruction on those instruments to my credit. My studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison covered the theoretical, historical, and performing aspects of music. My coursework in Madison led me to researching the secular cantatas of Christoph Graupner in Darmstadt, Germany on a Fulbright. In addition to interest in performing newly-composed music for traverso and harpsichord, my recent work with many different people as a church music director has led me back to a want to teach ...

Mary R. Milwaukee, WI

Music performance can bring on many added difficulties for the aspiring musician. I fought stage fright for many years and am now free!! I like to pass on what I've learned about overcoming nerves, posture, what to do when you're not playing, and overall stage presence.

About Mary

I started playing saxophone in 1994. It was an immediate passion! As the years went on my thirst for music grew and I picked up more instruments. No matter which instrument I play the passion is the same. I like to write and arrange as well so I feel an extreme importance on music theory. I am classically trained although my drive is always towards roots music. I try my hardest to combine those two elements. I currently play baritone saxophone in the Uptown Savages. I am also in the Dead Man's Carnival. In that I may play Alto, Tenor, Baritone Sax, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Accordion, Piano or sing. You can hear me on recordings by the Invaders, Midwest Death Rattle, Into Arcadia, various compilation albums throughout the world and the soon to be released Uptown Savages Album. . ...

Clarinet · In studio
Mary was amazing teacher for me, and she really sparked my passion for music. I had really just started clarinet when I began taking lessons from her, and I truly believe one of the reasons I am going into music is because of how she made me see it. In the short time that I was able to be her student I learned more than just the fundamentals, and have yet to find a teacher that I work with as well as I did with her. If I could take up lessons with her again, I would in a heartbeat.

Saxophone · In studio
Mary and I started working together after I co-founded a 60s soul/R&B/ska/reggae-beat band in which I sang vocals and was asked to play alto sax by the bandleader. I hadn't played sax in years (clarinet is my primary instrument), and among other things, I needed to start learning how to improvise - challenging for a symphonic band player whose head was always in sheet music. Mary's approach and teaching methods worked well for me; she's great at getting to know you as a player and your goals, and once she did that for me, she was immediately able to formulate a course of action. In the six months we were together, my tone, pitch, and playing improved, and my confidence grew. I heartily recommend Mary; no matter your instrument, she will get right down to business, keep you moving, and inject some fun into the whole process. A great player and entertainer, Mary has been a strong role model for me. I am grateful for everything I've learned from her, and I look forward to working with her again.

About Nick

I am a Milwaukee area musician that enjoys music in all its diverse forms. My main instrument is the trombone (specifically the bass trombone) but I regularly teach and play all the low brass instruments, including baritone/euphonium and tuba. I also have a good deal of experience playing and teaching guitar and ukulele as well. I enjoy teaching above all else and hope to share the wonderful things music has done for me. My top goal in any lesson is to find out how music fits into the student's life and help them reach their own musical goals.
