The first lesson was great. She explained some of the fiddle's background, how to hold it, and how to play it all in an interactive way. The time flew by. My daughter is very enthusiastic about the lessons & even more excited about the fiddle than before the lesson. Kathleen is awesome.

About Ken
I was born and raised in the Mid-Western US where I played and performed in several circuit bands, some which received record contracts! I also have 2 national product endorsements. After 10 years of playing in the mid-west, I then set my eyes on the Southern US where I currently resides and performs. I have over 27 years of total experience in the industry. This experience includes guitars, equipment, booking, marketing, effects, amplifiers, recording and live music mixing. I have hands-on experience in many musical styles such as Rock, Heavy Metal, Pop, R&B, Country, Top 40, Funk and Folk music.

Over the past 10 years, I have started my teaching practice and I've taught students who range from 7 years of age and up. The one thing I have learned is that lessons absolutely have to be fun! I target each student’s lessons to uniquely foll
ow your goals and get YOU to where you want to be.

Some of my guitar influences are Van Halen, Steve Vai, ACDC, Guns ‘n Roses, Led Zeppelin and James Brown just to name a few. I've shared the stage with Eddie Money, David Lee Roth, Great White and several other national touring artists. I have a passion for music and love to share this with others willing to learn the instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
Some example lessons would be as follows:

I target each student uniquely. No cookie-cutter lesson plans! I learn your short and long-terms goals and set the lesson material appropriately to help the student achieve their goals. Lessons absolutely have to be fun, so if you like to laugh and have a good time while learning guitar, this is right up your alley!

I use both written and media formats for my lessons. For example, the written material may include chords, modes or scales while the MP3 files (which I send via email) will cover the application of this material and can be used by the student for reference at home. Often the MP3 files include the material performed at a very slow speed and then again at normal speed to help the student understand the lesson and material.

All you need is a positive attitude and a desire to make music and you will be able to do it with a smile!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio: couches, music stands, recording equipment, amps and guitars, chord diagrams, room for parents to sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar for the lessons although I expect that the student will need one of their own to practice

*** Specialties ***
Rock Guitar, Pop, Top 40

About Heather
Hi! I'm Heather and I have been teaching music since the early 2000s. I grew up studying voice and piano because my mother is a voice and piano teacher! I have had lots of choral, solo, and operatic experience. I went to the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and where I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance. One thing I am passionate about is helping you learn music you are excited about! Studying music doesn't have to all be "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and rigorous exercises. I want to help you get better at what YOU love! Classical technique can be applied to any genre! I am excited about helping you achieve your goals!

About Lisa
I teach all ages and levels.

For my beginner adult students I can have you playing your favorite song (with both hands) in just a matter of weeks. As for my beginner little kids I use the FJH company curriculum so that they will become well rounded pianist.

Also, I'm able to teach anyone that has a natural ear for playing.

I homeducreated my kids for 16 years so from that experience I'm able to bring a very customized learning atmosphere to each student.

Online lessons are available but I do not travel to homes.

Please, contact me for specific scheduling.

About Roger
Teaching piano is my passion. Within the first few lessons you will start reading music. As you continue you will learn introductory classical pieces. As you progress, you will be given opportunities to choose pieces that you want to play. I teach using the Bastien book series, but customize each lesson to suit your needs. Depending on your interest level, we can explore composing and songwriting. Twice a year, you'll get to showcase your talents on recital.

I taught piano to K-12 aged children in the Ballantyne Area of Charlotte, North Carolina, from December 2013 until September 2016. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching all the precious children in my care.

I love teaching kids of all ages, starting at 4 (depending on child) and up through 18. My biggest thrill is when I see a child's eyes light up and I "see the light bulb come on",
that they have grasped what it is I am trying to teach them.

I became a member of Pi Kappa Lambda National Music Honor Society in 1992, partially as a result of my piano composition "Melancholy", which is also registered with ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers).

I don't just teach mechanical playing and reading skills. I try to go the extra mile and teach children the "why" behind the music, including music theory, harmony, composition techniques and music history. I also like to teach, when appropriate, chords, chord progressions, and how to incorporate them, even into their own compositions.

I earned by Bachelor of Music Education in 1993 from East Carolina University. I majored in voice (high baritone, not quite a tenor) and minored in piano.

My final grade point average was 3.64 and course work included four years of voice lessons and a senior recital that counted for 8 semester hours! My professor considered me an "anomaly" as French was the language I was best at singing and pronouncing.

I look back on my college days with fondness and have no regrets whatsoever. The music skills I learned have helped me in all walks of life.

I am a member of ASCAP since 2006.

Roger taught my son Max for over two years, took him from finding middle C to advanced Mozart, Bach and other music that Max selected. Roger's musical knowledge is extreme and he will adapt his teaching style to individual learning personalities. When Max had some less enthusiastic or frustrated moments, Roger would make every effort to re-motivate him with positive encouragement and by finding fresh music that inspired him. Max is an absolute pleasure to listen to on the piano now. So is Roger by the way if you can catch him playing some of his favorites between lessons :) Recommend as highly as possible!
