Lisa A.

West Bend, WI

Stage Presence, Enunciation, Projection and Confidence!

About Lisa

Lisa studied Classical Piano under Ruth Jones for 13 years and under Audrejean Heydenburg at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She studied Voice under Tamara Whitley for 6 years and under Charles Livesay at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. Lisa has been teaching Piano lessons for 10+ years and Voice lessons for nearly as long. She studied piano pedagogy and vocal music education at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She then taught music at West Highland Christian Academy for K-12 students and Home School Band and Choir for upper elementary students. Along with teaching, Lisa leads wo
rship at Bend City Church and has accompanied for several community plays and student scholarship events.

"I enjoy all kinds of music and really want to share my love of music with people of all ages. My goal is to get people excited to learn and expand their abilities through voice and piano and to prepare future performers and teachers as well."

*** Lesson Details ***
Lisa teaches all styles of voice including Classical, Italian, Jazz and Folk styles as well as Contemporary, Pop and Broadway. She incorporates the fundamentals into her every day teaching style and helps the student to grow in their technical ability through application in each song they study. Lisa teaches the student how to use their voice correctly as well as how to have good stage presence and performance ready ability.

Lisa teaches beginner piano students from age 5 through method books as well as more advanced students in either Classical styles or Contemporary styles. Some students have the desire to be concert pianists or to teach piano themselves, others just wish to play with a band or play songs which they can sing to. Both styles are valuable skills to learn. Lisa will discuss with the student which direction they would like to go and decide together what the student would like to learn.

You will receive a copy of Lisa's studio policy at your first lesson. You will be required to read over and sign this policy before lessons are to continue.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is in my apartment in a comfortable living room setting. Parents are welcome to wait and listen to the lesson or drop the student off.

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained Piano, Specialize currently in improvising with chord charts or lead sheets. Worship Music.

Voice lessons rely heavily on Broadway, and Show Tunes, but also include Classical, Italian, Latin, Folk Tunes, Classic Rock, Groups, Performance.

I sat in the room while 5 year old Maia had her lesson with Lisa. Maia seemed relaxed and able to follow Lisa's instructions. I was really impressed with Lisa's approach to the lesson and feel lucky to have connected with her. Maia said she likes her teacher too and was able to show me what she learned in her first lesson! Looking forward to future lessons with Lisa!

Peggy J.

Milwaukee, WI

About Peggy

Peggy J. is a highly qualified and experienced musician and teacher in the greater Milwaukee area. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a bachelor’s degree in music education and a master’s in both piano and choral conducting. Professionally, Peggy has worked in the Milwaukee and Chicago areas as a pianist and ballet dancer for many dance companies including The Milwaukee Ballet and Chicago City Ballet Companies. Throughout her career she has continually served as a church musician (pianist, organist, and choir director) for a wide variety of denominations. Beginning in 2000, sh
e taught music full-time in the Catholic school system for more than 10 years. Some of her other accomplishments include directing musical theater and composing and performing live accompaniments for silent movies.

Peggy has enjoyed a growing roster of private students (primarily piano and voice) since college.

By sharing the benefits of what all of her experience can teach, she puts the wonderful language of music within her students’ reach. Each spring and winter they have an opportunity to exhibit their successes to friends and family as they prepare and perform in bi-annual recitals.

*** Lesson Details ***
As Peggy begins lessons with a new student, they work together to establish what musical background, if any, the student has and determine clear goals in terms of the student’s focus of study. While some aspects such as style and specific repertoire may be more flexible, all will systematically develop a true understanding of the basics of music theory. Technique and habits of practice are made clear and assignments, tailored to each student, and comments to the student and/or parents are notated weekly. Building a positive, trusting, and respectful relationship with student is also very necessary. A teacher’s ultimate job is to teach the student to be his own problem solver. The teacher provides the tools. The student uses them in daily practice. Even as a beginner, a student will learn the process of preparing and presenting himself with confidence in the bi-annual recitals. How exciting to not only learn the love of music, but grow in self-esteem and discipline.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I DO have a portable Privia keyboard to carry in my car, but I believe the student must have some sort of keyboard at home with which to practice on during the week. Even a voice student would need at least a small keyboard, but, with my Privia for lessons, that would work fine!

*** Specialties ***
Strong emphasis on theory and proper technique. Usually a mixed rep. that includes classical with an understanding of the historical stylistic eras (as they effect interpretation) and (esp. with younger students) some contemporary genre that is recognizable to them to see the comparisons and differences.

Susan L B.

Milwaukee, WI

About Susan L

I have a broad classical education with a great deal of music experience. I received my professional education in the University of Oregon's School of Music, where I specialized in Opera Performance and Languages, and at the Music Conservatory in Perugia, Italy. I also studied History and Philosophy, History of Performance Techniques, Acting, Italian and French diction and phonics, and Music Performance Theory. While in Oregon, I performed with Eugene Opera! Company and the Oregon Symphony. I am a Certified Singing Vocal Specialist, familiar with Speech Level Singing, and the Estille philosoph
y. I also have experience as a Music Librarian, specializing in music manuscripts, recordings, indexes and scores.

Academic tutoring and Private Piano, Keyboard, and Voice Lessons are available, weekly or bi-weekly, using solid classical technique. Training in Opera arias, and Broadway songs, Ballads or Jazz. For children I can teach reading, writing, piano, music appreciation, reading sheet music, written music theory, ear training, different styles of music and rhythm, or the cadences and intonations and rhythms of Romance languages. Vocal Training is also available for Pageant Preparation, College Preparation, Actors, Audition Preparation, Corporate/Public Speaking, and ESL practice. All ages are welcome to inquire.

I believe in a holistic physical approach to singing. Your body is your instrument, and whole body exercise is essential to building stamina, and I can direct that development. With increasing strength and deep breathing, a singer can relax, and the sound will carry. There will be no need to strain when "belting" with proper preparation and technique, and you will be heard in the back row! It is also ideal to understand the words and their meanings in each phrase of the music or selection. I can help you interpret songs or audition pieces in a variety of languages. You will learn the natural pacing of each song and explore the meaning and emotional effect you can express! Each voice is unique. Let's work together to find music which is uniquely suited to your voice!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard, Violin, Viola, Guitar, sheet music

Keyboard, Guitar, pitch pipes, sheet music

Nick W.

Milwaukee, WI

Anyone can learn to perform!

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.

Music Criticism: How To Handle a Critical Audience
Years ago, I heard my first band would be featured in the local paper and I was so excited to read the article. I hurried home to read it and found that the short blurb was far from complimentary.

However, I have learned how to handle criticism and continued to make music that makes me happy. In the time since then, I have been lucky enough to receive both criticism and positive revie
