Jenny D.

Glendale, AZ

About Jenny

Private classes allow each person to learn at their pace. I love working with all ages of students, kids through adults. Each one bringing their experiences and love of learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe anyone can learn to play the piano or sing, but you must enjoy what you are doing. Once you have a basic knowledge of the instrument/notes you will be able to start choosing music that you enjoy playing/singing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I use a Roland Digital Piano to teach my lessons. I use programs on the computer to reinforce musical concepts learned.

*** Specialtie
s ***
I like to use a variety of methods to teach depending on my students likes and abilities.

A very intuitive guide through one's problem areas to succeed. Her vast knowledge and experience give her a broad range of teaching tools she applies tailored to one's needs to bring her students to their next level. And she herself is a great singer with a powerful voice. Thank you Jenny for being a kind, patient, understanding and motivating teacher!

Chad E.

Phoenix, AZ

About Chad

For over 25 years, I have been instructing students of all ages, and skill levels. Many have moved on to become wonderful performers, and even teachers themselves. My studio is located at my home in Anthem, which I have owned since 2006.

I credit my success to my experience. I started teaching private lessons at age 12, and working professionally at age 13, so my playing level grew along side my instruction ability. This benefits my students greatly, because I remember the struggles that can occur from learning this instrument, and have multiple solutions for each challenge. I am a very p
atient teacher, but that doesn't mean I will not push to help my students grow. Whether you are looking for someone to show you how to play your favorite songs, gain music scholarship to attend a top university, or seeking a mentor to become a professional musician, give me a try. I won't let you down.

Chad E. has a BA degree in Studio Music and Jazz performance from the University of Miami (2000)

Music stores/production companies Chad E. has worked with include: Resurrection Drums, Backstage Music, Mavpro Productions, Mars Music, and CCE productions.

Master classes for groups of percussion instruments, as well as rhythm section techniques on all styles of music also available.

Chad took me in after 7 years if playing and multiplied a skill that was already significant. While teaching techniques and grooves, he has also shown me secrets of recording practicing and gigging which have made me an overall well rounded player.

Jill M.

Glendale, AZ

About Jill

I have been a professional musician for over 35 years and have taught beginning piano and oboe privately and in group classes. For the past 18 years, I've taught piano, chorus, guitar, band, and music history for the Deer Valley Unified School District. I will make your lessons fun and exciting and teach to your abilities. I believe that all children are inherently musical and the study of music can help a student in all aspects of their life, not just music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In addition to the standard music stands, metronome, tuners and music, I have digital recording equipment
for student's audition recordings. I have helped college bound students get into serious music programs like Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. For students ages 5 to 9 years old, I recommend the recorder as a introductory woodwind before learning the oboe.

My 13 yr old son has been taking piano lessons with Jill for a few months. I have seen a tremendous improvement in his focus and confidence. He is doing well with learning to read notes and practices every day with out a reminder. I'm very happy with Jill ' s teaching style. We will continue lessons for the foreseeable future until she feels he mastered piano.

I am an adult learner and former violin player but hadn't played the violin in over 15 years.

I thought the way she gauged my residual skills was amazing. She chose short pieces in successive Suzuki books to assess my rhythm, subdividing, bowing, fingering and knowledge of scales.

She picked up on the smallest details - it was amazing really. For example, she mentioned that she liked the left hand frame, but wanted to check on one thing - so she riffed through the books I had and had me play a piece - just so she could see how the frame held up when I had to reach for the high c on the E string. She liked that I kept the third finger down while reaching with the fourth, but noticed then that my thumb moved under the neck - I guess this made her want to see how I shifted positions (I didn't think I'd have to do that in my first lesson after 15 years!) - and she saw that I had my thumb under the next. The craziest part about this is that this is a habit that my high school violin teacher dealt with with me!

More importantly, though, she was very understanding about goal-setting. She didn't lump me in with her younger students and asked very frank but focused questions about what I wanted to get out of playing the violin again - some that I hadn't even thought to ask myself!

I really look forward to my next lesson with her!
