Kenya C.

Wyoming, RI

About Kenya

I started playing music in the fourth grade. My first instrument was the
cello. In fifth grade I changed my instrument to the violin and found that it was definately something I wanted to persue. A year later I started
on the piano, and unlike the violin, I found that it was easier to learn it on my own. Because of that, my knowledge on the piano has been mostly self taught. I have been playing both instruments going on 16 years, and even though I did
play other instruments, nothing took center stage like the
piano and violin.

Although I have never played in the Boston Philharmonic
or London
Symphony Orchestra's, nor have written or composed any CD's, doesn't
mean I don't have a passion for what I do. To me, music isn't just about playing in a large orchestra or being famous. It is about recognizing the many different styles from cultures all over the world. It is the ability to appreciate the sounds the reverberate across the spectrum, the ability to mix and match in order to create something new, and to think outside the box when it comes to inventing new ideas. To me, music is a form of art (just like dance, drawing and writing), and just like any form of art, there must be a spark of passion behind it, or it becomes meaningless.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching music for almost two years and I have experience in
musical influences from the baroque, classical, and romantic periods, 20th
century and contemporary music, ragtime and blues. My belief is that learning
music comes easiest when it is relatable to everyday life. It is relaxing and
teaches patience and coordination. It is also a way to release one's inner
artist.

My lessons will cover topics ranging from learning how to play (beginners),
improving your technique, your ear, sight-reading, music theory, and
improvisation.

It will include the application and utilization of the fundamentals of music
as an art, and will incorporate style, technique, and creativity.

Lessons will be individualized to encourage and inspire ones self to not only succeed in just music, but to succeed in life.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Books, computer, keyboard (weighted keys, sustain pedal), violin (student must have their own violin). Students are responsible for purchasing their own books (if the student is young, it is the responsibility of the parents) for their lessons after the first lesson.

Kenya C

Although, I've never met Kenya personally, my usually shy daughter has been completely comfortable around her. I a few short lessons she's already learned sooooo much. My daughter and I both look forward to more lessons from her in the very near future. Thanks TakeLessons and THANK YOU KENYA!

I wish I could have continued my lessons. Hopefully I'll be able to continue this in the future, but wanted to say that Kenya is a very kind and patient teacher, and I hope to be able to take lessons from her again when the time comes. I really liked her approach to teaching an old dog like myself.

Kenya is a great teacher. She is very encouraging and has a good read on my 8 and 5 yr olds so as to not push too much but is by no means a push over. I like her soft spoken firm style.

Kathleen F.

North Kingstown, RI

About Kathleen

I began playing flute as a child and have continued with music into adulthood. I attended the Community College of Rhode Island and graduated with an Associates in Fine Arts, and continued my studies at Rhode Island College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with concentrations in Music Theory and Music History. At Ric I studied Flute with Mary Ellen Kregler, as well as, Bass Clarinet with Ian Grietzer, Principal Clarinet for the Boston Pops Orchestra. Currently I am the Prinicipal Bass Clarinetist for the Rhode Island Wind Ensemble and 1st Piccolo for the Boston Wind Jammers, Providence Br
ass Band, and the Worcester Brass Band.

*** Lesson Details ***
In lessons, I find it important to work on tone production, technique, etudes for concentration, and a piece that the student and I pick out together. I also like to incorporate a little theory in the mix so student understands what they are reading. Most of all, I want the student to feel relaxed and have fun while learning. A relaxed musician who enjoys what they are doing always plays beautifully.

Metronome, Tuner, Keyboards, Various Music Books, Solo Pieces, White Board, and Computer.

My focus has always been building bridges between cultures across time and space. I strive to create music that is organic, cohesive, and sensitive to the needs of the clients, the setting, and the intended performers.
