Music is an extremely multifaceted skill and every student learns in a completely different way. Some students will gravitate towards certain aspects of music more then others. For me, it is all about favoring these aspects in order for the student to get the most creative and intellectual growth. I am a well-versed professional musician and have experience in many genres from classical to more popular styles. I teach strong foundations in note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, improvisation and more. My lessons are always encouraging no matter what level or pace the student is at. Send me a message, I look forward to working with you!

About Kevin
I am a private woodwind instructor and professional freelance musician. My main instrument is saxophone and I double on flute, teaching both with the addition of beginner to intermediate clarinet. I have a Masters in Jazz Studies from Manhattan School of Music and BA in Classical and Jazz Performance from Michigan State University. I am experienced in many different genres of music and have performed and recorded with many jazz, latin, funk, soul, fusion, R&B, pop, and classical ensembles.
For me teaching is extremely rewarding, the fact that I get to share and guide students through this creative art form that is so dear to me is really a special thing. Music has many aspects and certain students gravitate towards different aspects then others. I focus on these specific aspects so my students get the most creative and intellect
ual growth.

Kevin has been my teacher for 3 years. We meet once a week. Kevin is a gifted teacher (and a great musician). He only corrects a mistake once I've reached the level when I can fix it. This way I have been making progress week after week, and it feels good.

Kevin is a wonderful teacher. My daughter started saxophone lessons with him at the beginning of the summer and she adores him. He's funny, patient, encouraging and thoughtful. We couldn't ask for a better sax teacher! Kevin also taught a master class at my older son's middle school and he was fantastic. I highly recommend him!

Experience in teaching clarinet students from aged 8-39, for exam and audition preparation or simply for fun, has allowed me to develop a flexible approach to teaching and I will tailor lessons to suit each individual's needs.

About Alastair
"Wright’s playing was tremendously technical and high-flying. So high-flying in fact, that when he reached for some of his highest altissimo notes my eyebrows shot up in sympathetic awe." - KC Metropolis Review, 5/29/18.

I've been teaching saxophone and clarinet privately for 10 years. I currently serve on faculty at the University of Central Missouri as Instructor of Saxophone, and teach saxophone and clarinet at the Kansas City School of Music. I am a Conn-Selmer endorsing artist. I hold music performance degrees from the Birmingham Conservatoire of Music (Bachelors), UK, and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (Masters). I am currently completing my Doctorate in Music Performance at the University of Missouri Kansas City.

I love working with students of all ages, whether you have goals of making all-state, enterin
g into college music programs, or are simply learning for fun! Past high school students have had successes at district and state-level competitions, and have secured places in several college music programs.

Daelyn is an incredible human being! I suppose as a friend I am biased, but I have reason to be. She is a phenomenally patient person who finds joy in watching others grow and improve. She is thoughtful and understanding, and she is constantly seeking to expand her skills and knowledge of music. I would highly recommend Daelyn to anyone who is looking for a kind, patient teacher.

I started playing clarinet in 1998 and continued through college. I took private lessons under Dr. Christopher Gibson at Northwest Missouri State University. I have a Bachelor of Education in Instrumental Music from NWMSU.

About Dana
It has been a dream of mine for a long time to be a full-time piano teacher. I have 25 years experience playing piano and 7 years teaching. I play many other instruments and have an overall passion for music!

Some of my strengths include patience, humor and compassion for others. I want to figure out what makes you tick. What do you want to learn about piano? I am always looking for new and exciting ways to teach piano. Did you know they make color by note coloring books? At the end of the day if I can share even a fraction of my love for music with you and you are able to learn something, that is what gives me true joy.

Hi! I have a Bachelors in Music Education and have started many students on their instruments. I have 3 children so I decided to give up regular teaching to be with them.
Hoping to give the love of “playing” an instrument to many others!

About Kim
Hello! I started my love of music at a young age with my family playing and singing at family functions. That turned into a wanting to learn how to play the flute and I went up through high school with that instrument. After high school I branched out more into vocal performance. After that I joined a traveling performance group. No not the circus! I joined Drum and Bugle Corp. They taught be how to play the Baritone and I marched a straight Baritone. I then learned the Mellophone and marched that after. Since I had experience with Drum Corp Marching I taught over 10 different marching programs over many different years. I graduated from College with my Bachelors in Music Education and was a music director until I had my children and decided to give up regular teaching. After all of the years I spent honing my craft I decided t
o continue giving lessons. I have the most experience with Flute, but can teach many other instruments: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone/euphonium, piano.
I have worked with many different age groups and levels of ability. I am happy to help you learn to have fun and "play" your instrument!

I took lessons with Joe for 5-6 years throughout middle and high school, and looking back it was one biggest gifts I've had in my life. He is a phenomenal musician, teacher, and mentor, and I cannot recommend him enough for anyone.

With Joe, I learned from the very fundamentals of clarinet technique, to the musicality and sensitivity of making beautiful music. And throughout our lessons, Joe was both demanding in his standards and extremely patient in helping me learn and master difficult pieces. With Joe, I was able to audition and be selected for multiple state and national honors band programs, and even select music programs for college.

Beyond teaching me how to play the clarinet (and play it really well!), Joe also taught me to truly appreciate music - a gift I will have for the rest of my life. And he also taught me the value of diligence and hard work - practice really does make perfect. Little did my teenage self know then, but the weekly clarinet lessons I took with Joe became lessons for rest of my life. Thank you, Joe!

Joe has inspired me to continue playing, even as an octogenarian. He has been extremely helpful with all aspects of clarinet playing. HIs own performance skill is the best I have encountered in the Bay Area. He is selfless in helping his young students succeed. Many have won competitions and been accepted to prestigious institutions because of his tutoring and encouragement. It is a joy to hear him play and a privilege to be one of his students.

I began taking lessons from Joe 5 years ago when I retired. I had played in various groups through my college years and was wanting to improve my skills and return to playing in local groups. Joe is a demanding and detail oriented teacher. He has particularly emphasized with me not just technique but musicality. He encourages his adult students to play in recitals. Joe is phenomenal clarinetist himself who solos with local groups. I recommend him highly.
