Edmond, OK

About Tracy

I have been playing the drum set in various bands for over thirteen years. I have also been playing with the OKC Community Orchestra since 2009. I have played in symphonic and jazz bands and a percussion ensemble. I have taught a percussion class as well as private lessons. I have been a full time music teacher in the OKC district. I have recorded in the studio also, and I enjoy doing a bit of my own production. Rocking on stage is my favorite activity! I can teach you how to be an integral part of a band and play along to your favorites. I enjoy bringing out the best in a student and te
aching to his/her strengths. Let's run!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very easygoing and patient teacher. I fully understand that the drum set requires a high level of coordination, and I am mindful of this while working with students. I will begin with proper grip and stroke technique as well as the use of a metronome. I will teach the student to read rhythms and drum set notation. I know how to isolate difficult patterns, break them down into understandable parts, and reintegrate them into a piece. I like to use the music that a student enjoys to relate to the written music. I have found YouTube to be an indispensable tool for this, and my students have responded very well. I will work on snare drum technique as well, because it is the primary voice on the set, and the touch and nuance required to play it well relate to the set as well. I will tailor my instruction to suit the student's learning style and preferences. I want to make the learning fun, so I will help the student quickly gain the basic skills to play along with their favorite bands. This promotes musicality as well as solid time. It will also aid in transcription, which will come with development and is a valuable tool. I will use this in tandem with technique-building exercises to form a well rounded musician. I believe that a student should have a familiarity with his/her instrument, so we will also go over the anatomy and tuning of the set. Above all, music should be fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ drum set, hand drums, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a practice pad, snare drum, and sticks. If a student wishes to have drum set lessons in his/her home, that instrument should be there.
**Please note** I do have a drum set in my home.

*** Specialties ***
For the drum set, I am the most experienced in rock, country, and bluegrass styles. I am comfortable with both Stevens and Burton grips for mallet instruments.

Great teacher for my son!

Tracy has been an excellent fit for my young son. She is very patient and varies the lesson to hold a young child's attention. She gives lots of praise and encouragement. She seems to have appropriate expectations for a 5 1/2 yr old and is good about communicating with him on a level he can understand. These are concerns I had when looking for a drum teacher for a child who is so young.

Beverly M.

El Reno, OK

About Beverly

My greatest desire is that I will instill in each of my students the love I have for making music. I consider it to be the language of the heart, and nothing equals the moment you realize you are hearing your thoughts and feelings in the music you are playing. What a priceless gift to give yourself!

Perhaps you've decided to become a professional musician, or maybe you've decided to follow a dream you've had for a lifetime, to play piano for your own enjoyment---whatever your goal is, I can lead you there! It's NEVER too late to follow a dream!

I am a classically-trained pianist, and
received music education in Paraguay, South America, and at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, Waxahachie, TX. I have also excelled at playing many styles by ear. I am fortunate to also love teaching, which allows me the incredible privilege of sharing my musical knowledge and my love for playing with anyone who wants to join me on this amazing journey.

I have 30 years of experience teaching piano--from numerous four-year-old to an eighty-six-year-old student. In addition to teaching students to play by note, I enjoy teaching students to play by ear. Together, we will explore many different types of music--Easy-listening, Country, Southern Gospel, Black Gospel, Blues, Latin, Contemporary, Classical, etc.

I am qualified to teach piano by note from beginner through early advanced (all ages); by ear, beginner through very advanced.

I also have experience teaching special needs students, students with physical handicaps, and students with physical limitations (Ex: Autism, delayed learning, ADD, ADHD, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, etc.), and feel that anyone can learn to play. We may need to slow the pace or change the technique, but I haven't found a child or an adult who couldn't learn to play piano, if they really have the desire to do so. In many cases, I've seen students who struggle in other areas of life excel in the area of music.

I have written more than 200 songs (mostly Gospel and some easy listening), with numerous ones having been recorded by various artists. Several have been arranged and published for church choirs.

Having lived in South America as a child, I am bilingual and qualified to give piano lessons in English or in Spanish.

I would be honored to share my knowledge and love of music with you. Give yourself a priceless gift that will last a lifetime!

*** Lesson Details ***
Our sessions will be laid back and comfortable, yet challenging. Humor will often find its way into our sessions. I am patient with my students, while helping them master new songs or techniques. I understand that every student learns in a way that is unique to them, and I will do my best to discover each student's learning method. I do not expect perfection, but I do strive for excellence. I believe every student should work to be the best pianist they can possibly be, while having fun doing so!

I believe it is important for students to have a strong foundation of learning to read notes--so much so, that I will not teach a young student to play by ear, who is is not willing to learn to play by note as well.

Adults who have never had piano lessons are encouraged to learn to play by note as well, and will be given the opportunity to learn to play by ear if they desire. Adults who have a good knowledge of reading music will truly enjoy learning to play many styles by ear, and learning how to improvise (adding extra elements to written music).

Each lesson will conclude with an assignment of songs given to work on throughout the week--usually 2-3 songs for 30-minute lessons, and 4-5 songs for an hour-long lesson. These will be the same songs we have worked on during the lesson time, so you will go home with the knowledge you need to master each song. Music theory sheets and technique exercises will also be included in the assignments.

Daily practice is strongly urged, in order for the student to progress. If a student doesn't practice, they won't progress. If they don't progress, they will become bored. It's a very short path from boredom to quitting. That's a tragedy that can very easily be avoided, by making a commitment to practice 5-6 days a week. The amount of recommended practice times varies according to age and level of skill.

Students will showcase what they have learned at a yearly recital, the second Saturday in December. I also encourage students to share their talent in community and school talent shows, at church, at family gatherings, and for friends. In just a few weeks you'll be playing songs that others will recognize!

Note: I do have cats in my home. Unfortunately, I do not have a way to block their access to the music studio. If you or your child has a problem with cat allergies, I can teach the lesson next door in our church.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are taught in the front room on a studio piano. There is a couch for seating for parents who wish to stay and observe a lesson. The yearly piano recital is conducted at First Assembly of God (next door to the studio), and students will enjoy playing my 5'9" grand piano located in the church sanctuary.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I purchase the necessary books and lesson binder, and the student reimburses me. I provide weekly lesson sheets for the lesson binder. Every student needs to have a piano or keyboard, plenty of good lighting, and a reasonably quiet room.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Country Gospel, Floyd Cramer Country, Black Gospel, Easy Listening, Easy Rock, Contemporary Christian, Latin, Pop. By note and by ear.

Classical Piano · In home
Kendra was my instructor for several years and through several skill levels. I began lessons with her learning theory and counting, and several years later performance with other musicians. She has the patience and experience to guide pianists of any age and skill level.

Kendra guided me early on into a love for classical piano and theory. I had other teachers who gave me primarily their own favorite composers, but Kendra showed me an array of composers and helped me find which style fit me the best. She encouraged me to go beyond what I thought I could do to what she knew I could do, but she did so with kindness and complete confidence in my skills.

Kendra also drew me out of the solitariness of classical piano solos. She taught me modern piano and how to play within a group. Harmonizing with guitarists, drummers, and vocalists is a completely different arena than mastering a sonata by Chopin or Bach. Kendra focused on rounding out my talent so I wasn't focused on just one part of being a pianist.

Piano · In home
I took piano lessons from Kendra for almost three years and loved it. She was very easy to learn from and helped foster an environment of creativity and encouragement - not pressure or unrealistic standards. Kendra has lots of experience in both classical and current/modern music. That was perfect for me because I wanted to learn the piano for pleasure and practicality. I wasn't interested in becoming the best classical pianist, so she helped me grow into what I really loved and enjoyed, which was learning to play worship music. I would highly recommend Kendra as a piano teacher to anyone who is interested in taking lessons, especially if you are a beginner who wants to explore where piano might take you in life and what you really love about it.
