Steve K.

Ellington, CT

About Steve

I am a Musical Director who has scored original music for many motion pictures and television and was musical arranger for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. I've scored and arranged original music for several television shows including, Desperate Housewives, MTV's Making the Band, It's Showtime at the Apollo and numerous series on PBS, A & E and Disney, . I have also served as on-set vocal and piano coach for many Disney TV series.

As a piano instructor, I believe in giving every student a foundation in classical music.. I enjoy teaching and playing Jazz and pop as well.

I've worked with
students ages 5-90. I simply love the teaching process and respect every student's journey. Mixing structure and discipline with a positive teaching style, I work to inspire students to be their best within a well structured curriculum that is fun and engaging.

Music must be fun...always!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students see progress. I don't believe in cookie-cutter instruction. I take the time to learn a students individual comprehension of the musical language and their learning style. I also build a practice schedule that is realistic and creates growth. Music instruction should not feel like a burden, but should be joyful. It's a process I have respected. Whether you are 90 or 9, you can learn music, love music and feel its presence by playing an instrument or singing. My job is to communicate that joy and show you how you can do it for yourself.

Learning to master a musical instrument is a two way commitment and I will always give you my full effort as I love the results.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a digital upright piano for piano and vocal instruction.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the lesson material and help students with purchasing the right method books.

*** Specialties ***
For beginning Piano-Intermediate, I have embraced the James Bastien series, as I believe it paces the young student and builds a foundation on a musical and pedagogical level.
Vocally, I follow a classical technique, but use that foundation as a basis to meet the goals of the singer for the style they want to achieve.

1st lesson ever for my 14-yr old son and it went great! Steve did a great job checking in a couple days prior to confirm a few details and sent great directions - he's in the newer part of his neighborhood so the aerial pic he sent was more up to date than the map on our phones, that helped a lot.

Kathleen F.

Providence, RI

About Kathleen

Kathleen is a classically trained bass clarinetist and flutist who has over 15 years of experience.

During high school Kathleen performed on a variety of instruments under the direction of Metro Narcisi, and found her passion laid with the woodwind family. Kathleen then attended the Community College of Rhode Island where she graduated with an Associates in Fine Arts with High Honors. She showed promise in music theory, and her orchestration of the Annie Overture was chosen for the opening of 2011 Hello Broadway!

After receiving her Associates, she continued her studies at Rhode Island
College where she received a Bachelors of Arts with concentrations in Music Theory and Music History. She showed a high aptitude for counterpoint and twentieth century theory, and concentrated on female studies in her musicology studies. While attending RIC, Kathleen had the benefit of studying clarinet under Ian Grietzer, principal clarinetist for the RI Philharmonic Orchestra and Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and flute under Mary Ellen Kregler. She also performed in a variety of chamber ensembles on bass clarinet, flute, and alto saxophone including New Music Ensemble, Sax Quartet, and Early Music Ensemble to name a few.

While attending RIC, Kathleen decided to open her own studio and offer lessons in clarinet, flute, saxophone, and music theory. After graduation, she has remained a community member of the Rhode Island College Wind Ensemble and is with the Rhode Island Wind Ensemble and Charles River Wind Ensemble performing on both bass and contrabass clarinet. She was voted into the positions of Music Librarian and Personnel Manager for the RI Wind Ensemble in May 2015 and frequently performs on piccolo in a variety of marching bands throughout Southern New England.

Stan M.

Coventry, RI

About Stan

Hi! I am a private music instructor with a B.M. degree from Berklee College of Music and over 33 years' full-time experience in the field. I also have decades of experience as a professional jazz, rock, and theater musician. My teaching style is laid-back and gentle. My focus is on enrichment and encouragement. I don't work with one-size-fits-all methods. Each lesson is customized to make the most of each student's own unique abilities and interests. I am very experienced in working with students of all ages, including very young children (ages 4 and up). I teach real music -- students begin p
laying music they love almost from day-one. For example, many of my piano and guitar students pride themselves on learning to play the every song on Beatles One ... playing right along with the CD! Reading, playing by ear, improvisation, singing while you play ... there are so many ways to play and avenues to explore in music. Do you have a song or two in your heart. Contact me today!
