My first lesson with Schroeder was a marvelous experience. Amazing enthusiasm he brings to the table. I recommend him to anyone who is beginning or is seeking to move up on the instrument. Can't wait for the next lesson.

Schroeder has done an excellent job teaching my son to play the saxophone. He makes the lessons fun and connects the learning to applicable examples that make sense to my child.

My very first lesson will be all about getting to know my student's interests and goals for the course then work on a mini assignment to give a taste of songwriting. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music, understand scales, start connecting music to your emotions and communication, and understand what it takes to write catchy but meaningful lyrics. As time goes on you'll be able to write lyrics and melodies smoothly and quickly, create harmonies with music theory knowledge, understand the basic evolution of songwriting in the US, gain confidence, and understand your emotions better. I specialize in the pop, and R&B forms of songwriting and use the book "6 Steps to Songwriting Success" as a guide. I will also teach you how to deconstruct your favorite songs so that you can learn how to create similar pieces yourself. It means a lot to me when students bring up a song they want to learn more about because they will be more engaged and can have more fun in their ...

I booked an online singing lesson for 11:00 am - 11:30 am and she never showed up or sent an email/ text. I am extremely disappointed. I waited in the lesson room from 11:00 am - 11:30 am by myself.

Jackie is an amazing piano instructor! She teaches both of my little girls and they we’re learning super fast with her. Her enthusiasm and passion are amazing! She kept the lessons very engaging and fun with a little add on of challenge for which we really loved. We were and still are super sad to have missed her with her move back to the East. My girls still ask for her and wonder when she will be back to the west. She is a great person and instructor. I highly recommend her. She is a keeper.
Christine
Jaki brought live music into our home. It was a magical experience!

Covid had me searching for activities for my 3 children. Finding a piano was my first step. Finding Jaki was easy, because my dear friend referred her to me.

A truly Transformative experience. We dove right in, meeting w Jaki twice a week. My kids took a liking to Jaki straight away. Only about a year of training my children play music beautifully from Moonlight Sonata, Cello Suite No. 1 to Still by Dre.

Let’s talk professionalism and worth ethic. Jaki is an extraordinary music teacher. She supersedes our expectations every time, and never fails. She’s amazing w kids!

About Michael

Playing the piano is supposed to be fun, and I teach it that way! Music is not magic, it is accessible and often seems much more complicated than it truly is. The piano can be therapeutic, it activates parts of your brain you're not already using, and once you start seeing progress and being able to

I have extensive experience writing with some of the best songwriters on music row, and my songs have been featured in American Songwriter Magazine. I co-write and perform weekly in Nashville, and love to share what I have learned with developing songwriters!

If a student is interested in working on both their voice and their songwriting skills, lessons can be designed to incorporate both. I address form, lyric writing techniques, melody enhancement, and commercial appeal when teaching songwriting lessons. Students will learn the fundamentals and will bring in songs for critique!

Many of my students also study to learn basic guitar and/or piano with me, with an aim to accompany themselves on their original songs. We also have a home recording studio, which is available at a discounted cost to students interested in recording demos of their songs!

"Yue's course really helped me better understand music. She presented musical concepts in a simple, easily digestible way and provided visuals and examples that made abstract concepts much more tangible and concrete - perfect for a visual learner. Learning with her was fun and engaging. I can confidently say that I feel more knowledgeable approaching music creation tools than before!"
