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

A Great Teacher!

Our son experienced a double-stroke/traumatic brain injury at birth. During his life, my wife and I have constantly implemented as many therapies and different learning environments, as possible. Not surprisingly, we have read how music can facilitate learning for children in various subjects and even enhance many of their skills that could be used in other areas.

As parents, we believe it has been a true blessing, finding a teacher such as Jenny, and we are very fortunate to have her as our son’s piano teacher. Through Jenny’s great patience and teaching methods, our 4-year-old son, today, is able to read and play his notes. We believe that this is possible because Jenny is a very experienced teacher knowing when to modify and implement the lesson plans in order for one to reach their full potential.

What a joy it is to see our son read, comprehend, and play his music. We are greatly appreciative for Jenny’s expertise, patience, and special skill of possessing the ability to teach many walks of life how to play the piano.
Amy R. Peoria, AZ

About Amy

My name is Amy and I teach Voice, Piano, and Music Theory! I am originally from Racine/Milwaukee, WI and have been a musician since I was young. I believe music is a universal language that connects us all on a deeper level. There is something so pure, beautiful, and genuine in music. It has the capability to move us to tears, feel empowered, or even break out in laughter. Sharing and connecting with others is what music is all about. I have loved music my entire life and enjoy bringing my passion and expertise to my students! *** Lesson Details *** Taking lessons is a fun and exciting experience! However, learning to play an instrument (or sing) is not easy. It takes practice, focus, dedication, and hard work. We set up a plan at the beginning of lessons to ensure success! Lessons

Amy is wonderful!

I've been with Amy for just over a year now, having "0" experience in the beginning. I'm so glad that I found her. Amy is a great teacher. She's professional, talented and experienced, patient, flexible and super easy-going.
As a beginner, playing the piano can be challenging and frustrating. Amy is encouraging, even when I think I'm doing poorly. She identifies difficulties and explains/demonstrates helpful corrections. I have learned a lot in my first year and I highly recommend her as a teacher. Thank you, Amy!!

My kids love Amy!

My daughters are currently taking lessons with Amy to learn to play piano. They are really enjoying themselves and have learned so much already. Amy is very professional to work with and has a great method of teaching. She leaves specific instructions for what to work on every week. We are very happy to have found such a great source for music instruction!

Best Music Teacher Ever!

I have grown so much musically because of what I've learned from Miss Amy. She has taught me so much about my voice and being confident on stage, I even got a solo this year at school! I have learned a lot about diction, expanding my range, making a clear sound, and each class is so much fun!

WE LOVE OUR DRUM INSTRUCTOR! My son was an extremely high energy very distracted five year old when we started lessons with Mr. Al. Let's just say that my son is not an easy student, but our son had already developed an obsessive attachment to music, most intensely to drums. We expected someone would be able to teach him drums, but we also got someone who is patient, flexible, understanding, and always respectful and kind to our son. We see Mr. Al in his home studio, and at now at seven years old, Joey's skill has definitely progressed. In fact, his learning has a momentum that our entire family can see. But Mr. Al has given Joey so much more than just that. Joey's love of music has flourished beyond measure. Joey now tells Mr. Al that he loves him after every lesson, WOW! We have been so pleased that my seventeen year old daughter now also takes lessons with Mr. Al too. Mr. Al is the perfect instructor for us. My kids think he's cool, and we think he's just fantastic all the way around!

One of the Best

I have studied with several instructors, and I found Al to be the best. He not only knows his craft and takes pride in it, but he has a unique way of connecting with his students.

He listens, observes, and then starts to create a curriculum that is specific to the student. He can then convey this material in a manner that is fun, easily understood, and constructive.

I would highly recommend Al as an instructor.

MY daughter loves playing!!

I tried to teach my daughter, Rose, how to play the guitar and I couldn't get her to follow through with her lessons. Al has made the guitar fun for her. She'll play AT LEAST an hour a day now, learning songs given to her and playing warm-ups like scales.

Al also teaches music theory so Rose understands music more. Any teacher that gets a student that excited is doing something right.
Richard C. Phoenix, AZ

About Richard

I started taking piano lessons at the ripe age of 4, but I quickly found my calling on the guitar. At the age of 20, and with 13 years of playing experience, I graduated from the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery (guitar building), after building both an acoustic and an electric guitar and receiving repair certification from Fender. I later completed my Bachelor’s Degree of Music in the field of classical guitar performance, at ASU in 2007. During this time I expanded to other instruments such as the Ukulele, Banjo, Mandolin, Dulcimer and Bass Guitar. I am involved with a number of extra musical activities that are available for you. First, I am part of a weekly jam session where my students meet and jam on a rotation with other music students in the phoenix area (drummers, singers, ...

Richard focuses on what the student wants out of the lesson, and takes steps to lead the student to a goal. His knowledge of music is excellent, and he imparts that knowledge adequately.

Jeremy T. New River, AZ

About Jeremy

Hi, I'm Jeremy. I'm from Wisconsin and I teach the drums. I stared taking private drum lessons at age 5. I'm 21 now and have never stopped reading and playing music since. Over the years I've played in school band class, Jazz band, marching bands, rock bands, and tons of time playing in solitude. I mainly focus on the drum set. I enjoy working with beginners from the ground up as well as improving on previously gained skills, and teaching new things to experienced drummers. I like the double bass pedal, and if you're interested I can definitely teach you to use it like a champ, but if not that's fine too. I love teaching children, peers and older folks as well!
