About Tim
My wife and I have been teaching piano lessons in the Kansas City area for more than 20 years. We have studios in our home; she teaches upstairs and I teach downstairs! I am currently accepting new students and welcome the opportunity to see them grow and experience the joy of piano playing.

While some of my piano students are involved in church music, I also teach students in the entire Kansas City area and we cover every genre: classical, country, pop, rock and Broadway styles. I encourage each pianist to discover his or her own passion for playing!

I have more than 33 years of experience teaching private piano students and look forward to many, many more. Let me help you learn to play the piano with excellence and have a lot of fun in the process!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have a teaching environment
that is professional and conducive to learning. My lessons include instruction in theory, technique and exposure to a variety of musical styles. Beginners will learn to play songs within 3 months time and gradually expand their repertoires to include more difficult piano pieces!

Beginning students are taught fundamental skills that apply to all piano players such as scales and arpeggios. Hanon exercises are used and chromatic scales are learned as well. I use Alfred teaching materials but not exclusively.

I encourage students to find their own favorites to play and lessons are tailored to meet the goals of the student. If your desire is to become a classical pianist, we concentrate on works of the masters. If you are wanting to improvise with a jazz band, we work toward ear training with the jazz greats! If you would like to play in a church worship service, we will focus our attention on service playing and playing worship songs by ear, too.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Den: upright, couch and recliner, parents can sit in on lesson

Classical and church music

About Thomas
Thomas began playing the piano when he was three, had a private teacher at age seven, and studied in high school at Jordan College of Music, Butler University. When he began his music studies at Ball State University, he learned that he could also sing! He earned his Master’s degree at University of Bridgeport, and returned to Ball State for a Doctor of Arts in Voice. His postgraduate education continued winning a fellowship at Aspen Music Festival (Fiora Contino, Margaret Hillis and Charlene Archibeque), Clare College Cambridge (where his teachers included John Rutter, Sir David Willcocks and Stephen Cleobury), The Britten-Pears School (Hugues Cuenod) and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities to Mozart’s Worlds in Vienna.

Thomas shared that studying at Clare College Cambridge, deciding to remain in London, and
teaching at the Hall Mead School gave him an opportunity to broaden his horizons. He developed a close relationship with British composer Dal Strutt, who composed several pieces for his voice and sang premieres of Strutt’s work at the Greenwich Festival, the British Music Information Center, All Saints Society, Essex, and other venues around London. The guitarist Martin Vishnick invited him to sing songs by the Renaissance English composers John Dowland and Thomas Campion on his recitals. Thomas performed as soloist with the Capella Singers, Ramsey Singers, and the Pink Singers, as their soloist in West Berlin for Hans Eisler’s “Die Mutter.”

Thomas sang the first performances of John Rutter’s “Shadows” for voice and guitar, with guitarist Ramona Hartmetz in Kansas City as well as Rutter’s “Mass for the Children” with the Philharmonia of Kansas City. He served as baritone soloist for Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, KC, and on tour in Salzburg, Paris, Florence, Westminster Abbey and the cathedrals of Christchurch, St. Mary’s, Southwell, Ely, St. Patrick’s, St. Davids, Birmingham, Wells, Bristol, Worcester, Exeter and Norwich.

After singing opera throughout his college years, his first ‘professional’ opera was “Die Fledermaus” at New Haven Opera. Lyric Opera Kansas City hired Thomas in 1981 for the chorus of “Fidelio” and the rest is history! One hundred plus shows, and counting!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher with a great sense of humor. You will also learn a lot of music theory and music history from me! My lessons begin with some training in reading music (Music Theory) and I suggest that you purchase Alfred's Music Theory Volume One or Two depending on your level of understanding.

After refreshing your music reading and rhythm skills, we will listen to you sing and begin to vocalize. I will develop exercises just for you, to help you develop your voice, making it stronger and more flexible.

When you have warmed up your voice with vocal exercises, we will work together on the music you wish to learn. It could be a song, an aria, a Broadway or Opera aria, or a religious piece.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large 30 foot living room with two pianos, music stands, keyboard, couches, seating area.
Mac computer, multiple cameras and great sound system.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Bel Canto (beautiful voice) style, operatic singing, Broadway style, Art Songs (Lieder in French, German and Italian.)

He may be good if you want to sing opera. I just didn't connect with him and his 'Style' of teaching. I was looking for more current music and that was where a very large disconnect was.

Right off the bat I could tell that my daughter will flourish with Dr. G. He is very encouraging while simultaneously effective at improving a weak nuance of her current skill set without making it feel like a negative critique. She is very excited to see what he can help her accomplish.

About Jason
I am a professional pianist and have been playing for 32 years. I graduated from the University of Memphis with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance.

I believe that playing the piano should be a fun and enjoyable experience. I have experience in many styles of music including classical, music theatre, jazz, blues, rock n' roll, latin, and many other styles of music.

I have music directed and played shows mainly in Tennesee and Missouri but have performed in many other various states. I also spent time on the river on the American Queen Steamboat as co-music director and pianist.

I believe in a strong technique but also having the experience to play multiple styles of music. If you are an experienced player and am wanting to learn better sight reading skills or how to play from a piano conductor score, I have much experience in th
at. Or you might just want to be able to play popular songs with friends I can help with that as well.

Hope to be able to make great music together with you!

I teach Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Saxophone students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Saxophone for 20 plus years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excelle
nce and pop music, depending on the goals and preference of the student.

Ms. Killion was my daughter’s piano teacher for a little around a year. My daughter is very shy and reserved around people that she doesn’t know. Ms. Killion was able to help her come out of her shell and gain confidence in playing the piano. She was very flexible with her schedule and took the time to give my daughter constructive feedback. We truly miss having Ms. Killion as our instructor!

I was Killion's manager for several years at her previous teaching location in St. Charles, MO. It left a devastating hole in my student count when she left, as she brought in more business than any of my other teachers! She is a fantastic educator who takes on a range of students in terms of age, ability, and instrumentation. Children respond especially well to her methods, but she is also able to garner significant results from adults. Her lessons are flexible, fitting the needs of various learning styles. What I appreciated most about her technique was her patience and her emotional investment in her students. When she left my program, her students brought her gifts and handmade cards that were a true testament to her level of compassion and the excitement she inspires! I would recommend her to anyone looking to develop their skills. Thank you Killion for all that you do!

Hey I'm Audrey!

I love seeing my students learn and grow themselves through and within learning a musical instrument. I care about helping you succeed in reaching your goals whether it's learning your favorite Taylor Swift song on guitar or singing in French!

My expertise is k-12 vocal and instrumental Music Education (backed by a degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, go Huskers!) as well as lots of performance and church band experience on a variety of instruments.

I've taught private lessons for years ranging from a Chinese grad student who wanted to learn how be heard at loud parties, to young students who's little hands can barely hold the guitar :) What a gift to start learning at a young age! Not to mention side benefits such as learning patience & diligence as well...

My favorite flavor of yogurt is key lime and my fa
vorite musical thing to do is play songs about Jesus with friends on whatever instrument is around- a guitar, a kleenex box. There's nothing better than making music with your friends around the firepit!

Strategies for Sight Singing

It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all that’s left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on. Taking a song previously unknown to you and delivering a reasonably accurate performance the very first run-through isn’t a talent that everybody has.   … Read More
