The sound of the flute is full of potential for a wide array of colors and textures and can be played in a variety of styles: classical, jazz, funk, Afrobeat, rock, and more. I teach my students through exercises catered to their musical passions. In addition to the basic technical elements of playing, I focus on listening across the musical spectrum. I encourage the use of long tones and air support to improve tone, flexibility, and all repertoire.

I have been teaching piano almost as long as I have been performing, coming up on 10 years. I started teaching beginners when I was just a teenager, and as I learned more about pedagogy and about piano myself, I branched into teaching more advanced students. To date, I have taught lessons to over 100 different students ranging in age from 5 to 70, and ranging in skill from complete beginner to college piano performance major.

Not every student is going to think I’m the best fit for them. I expect consistent practice, completion of assignments, and attention to detail in music. I have had many trial lessons that don’t pan out because the student or parent thinks my expectations are too high for them. Make no mistake; I expect a lot, but I also care deeply about music and have great understanding and sympathy for those who genuinely try. Whether your goal is to learn to read music, improve rhythm, learn to play the great classical repertoire, or simply have a good time learning the ...

About Kessa

I received my BM in piano performance from Brigham Young University, studying under Dr. Richard Anderson and Dr. Irene Peery-Fox. While there, I studied pedagogy from master teachers Dr. Irene Peery-Fox and Dr. Jared Pierce, who taught me both how to run a studio and how to manage individual lesson

Excellent. Nothing gets by her; very helpful.
Caleb
I had the opportunity to work with Kessa when we were both in undergrad and I was trying to decide whether or not to become a music major. I was feeling pretty discouraged with my current piano teacher at the school and talked with Kessa since we had a class together and I knew she was a piano major. I had a few lessons with her and she gave me so many helpful ideas about how to approach my pieces and improve my practice habits. She was very kind and didn’t make me feel bad at all, but still pushed me hard in those lessons because she believed in me. Even though I ended up deciding not to go into music after all, I still value those few lessons I had with her and recommend her to everyone at any level.
Marissa
Kessa is a very professional and talented piano teacher. My son loves going to lessons and we love hearing him practice such pretty music. We're impressed with Kessa's ability to explain confusing concepts and to encourage my son when he is having a tough time. She's done so well with transitioning to Zoom lessons during the pandemic and we love being able to have lessons from home.

I have been teaching voice for 10 years and use classical vocal techniques as the foundation for all singing training and styles (such as pop, jazz, and musical theatre, etc). The goal is, by focusing on proper breath support, ear training, and the exploration of your own voice, to produce a HEALTHY, rich, vibrant sound that will sustain you through a long, rewarding career.

I feel so lucky to have discovered Kris on TakeLessons. Every lesson begins with him checking in on my progress in a variety of different areas and every lesson ends with notes of our session and different areas for me to practice before our next session. There's always a great mix of homework types that Kris lets you explore in a way that is organic and fun for how you want to learn. He will work with YOU to help find the lessons that inspire you to keep practicing and staying engaged. We also spend a decent amount of time on music theory and composition, so I feel like I'm actually learning the instrument and not just following patterns. Lastly, Kris has a high level of empathy and is great at encouraging his students. He always makes me feel good about the progress I'm making while still challenging me to be better. I can't recommend Kris enough.
Hershey
Kris is great .. always positive and upbeat. Clearly is masterful at understanding music theory and its applications to the piano. Working at a rapid pace and after just 3 lessons, I feel like I understand the piano. I would say that my understanding of some music theory (as a guitarist) helps me keep up with Kris, but he is a great listener and pauses when necessary.
Nicole
Amazing instructor. I've come so far from working with him.

In a musical theatre class with me, we will explore music, acting and dance in a warm, encouraging environment. We will start the class with a physical and vocal warm-up, then move on to learning a song (learning vocal technique and working on acting choices within the song), learning choreography to a dance, or performing a scene. If students are excited about a particular movie or musical, I love incorporating material from it into lessons! My musical theatre classes are fun, upbeat and informative. Through my extensive background working as a musical theatre actor, I can share tips, musical theatre history knowledge, and fun facts about the industry. I look forward to singing, dancing and acting with you soon!

For insightful feedback, I always connect with Fiona. Her years of experience as a child performer who went through the rigorous application process for post-secondary education, followed by her own inspiring career as a performer, and now as someone who sits on many audition panels, she offers an informed perspective that is useful for performers of any level. The love she has for musical theatre radiates through all of her work and she brings an incredible generosity to her teaching. She is someone you can count on!!
Catherine Daly
Fiona is an exceptional teacher! She has worked with some of my younger students and not only has the knowledge of the art, but the patience and kindness to communicate it in an engaging manner. I highly recommend any class she is offering.
Samuel
While only in her 20s, Fiona is already a seasoned entertainment professional. Her career has ranged from teaching, to performing, to now sitting on the other side of the table as a casting associate, Fiona has a wide range of industry knowledge. Her passion for art gives her a keen eye to zero in on even the smallest of details. She’s helped me prep for theatre, film, television, and commercial auditions. Fiona’s direct but kind approach allowed me to feel so comfortable in the studio so I could easily discover knew choices. I can’t recommend her enough!

He comprehends music and its historical context in performance and went further by investigating any interesting aspects about the composition and composer. He shows an advanced knowledge of classical music, but has a good knowledge of jazz as well. He showed patience in his learning and was disciplined and dedicated to practicing. He performed in an excellent and mature manner. I recommend him highly."
