My grandson is 8. He dreams about learning to play the trumpet. Today was his first lesson from Mr. Tom Cross. The lesson was delivered perfectly at his level. With positive reinforcement. Clear direction. Humor. All the way home my grandson smiled!

About Amanda
Hi! My name is Amanda and I have been teaching private lessons since 2002. I teach both French Horn and Piano lessons in my home studio or at your home. I believe that everybody learns differently so there is no "cookie cutter" lesson plan with me. Your lessons will be tailored to your musical interests and style of learning. Young beginning piano students can expect to learn theory through games and coloring projects for example. I strive for a dynamic studio so that all involved have fun learning.

I am also a registered Wunderkeys instructor. Wunderkeys is a piano method specifically designed for preschoolers aged 3-5 years old. Using pictures, rhymes, singing, games, and more, lessons are so much fun that students don't even realize they're learning! Children don't need to have any musical background or knowledge to learn with the W
underkeys method.

I hold a Bachelors degree in French Horn performance from the University of MN-Duluth with piano being my secondary instrument. I also hold a Master's Degree from Wichita State University. I held the position of Assistant French Horn in the Wichita Symphony and have freelanced and subbed with numerous orchestras and groups in the midwest including the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra.

Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging.

About David
I am an experienced accordion teacher and performer, offering lessons at all levels from beginner to advanced in my home near Rosedale and the St. Paul campus of the U of MN. I especially enjoy working with children and with adult beginners. For those who do not own an accordion, I have accordions available for rental and can also help you purchase a quality used accordion at a reasonable price.

My background: I have been giving accordion lessons for ten years and have been performing on accordion for (has it really been that long?!) over fifty years. I originally studied accordion at the Henry Johns studios in Allentown, PA, and later studied with Dee Langley in Minneapolis. I have performed with the group Mosaica, which has appeared regularly at Kramarczuk's in Northeast Minneapolis and has also been featured at venues such as Polish
Festival in Minneapolis and Festival of Nations in St. Paul. I also perform in a smaller three-person group, known as the Accidental Trio. As a solo musician I have performed for many special events, such as weddings and parties. I have frequently been called upon to play accordion in pit orchestras for musicals, including "Fiddler on the Roof" (5 different productions), "Cabaret," and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."

About Chris
Hello! My name is Chris Fleming and I've been teaching drum lessons for approximately 5 years, as well as professionally drumming the past few years. I myself have played drums for 9 years and built up a solid "curriculum" of sorts for teaching students due to the very professional lessons I was given during my musical development years. I have taken lessons from Steve Goold (drummer to Sara Bareilles, Owl City, Carly Ray Jepsen, and Ben Rector,) Zach Miller (drummer to Jason Gray and Sara Groves,) and many other qualified teachers.

Stylistically, I am qualified to teach students pop, rock, country, folk, funk, worship, gospel, Latin, and some jazz. I strive to teach my students the importance of understanding the art behind music and the drum kit's role in that, and give them the necessary exercises and practices to achieve their goal
s with their instrument. I have my students tell me their goals and I then develop a plan of action to allow them to satisfy those goals.

Experience:
- Drum for various churches in the Minneapolis Metro area. Some small churches as well as some mega churches.
- Freelance musician for a few local city bands.
- Toured and drummed with pop artist, Shuree.
- Recorded drums for various artists in studios around Minneapolis.
- Have taught around 10 drum students over the past 5 years and seen much musical growth in many of them.

About Ethan
Hello and thank you for checking out my profile! My name is Ethan E. and I'm 22 years old. Originally raised in the northwestern tip of Minnesota, I moved to St. Paul to pursue a degree(s) in music after receiving a scholarship to McNally Smith College of Music. I am an active performer in the Twin cities area playing freelance and with the Adam Meckler Orchestra and Mariah Mercedes band. I'm comfortable playing a wide range of styles, but play mostly contemporary Jazz, Fusion, Classical, and Rock/Blues. I work closely with Grammy-nominated producer/arranger Andy Thompson (Taylor Swift/Jeremy Messersmith) and composer/arranger Adi Yeshaya (The Voice, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston). My ultimate love is composing music for orchestra and jazz ensemble. Composers and guitarists that have influenced me the most are Allan Holdsworth
, Pat Metheny, Sergei Rachmaninoff, John Williams, Randy Rhoads, and Adrien Moignard. Please let me share my knowledge and passion for music with you today!
