About Mark
I teach according to your individual needs. I only teach in my own studio. I do not travel anymore. I help you become successful on piano, violin, cello, viola, bass, guitar, or bass guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I help you have fun learning to read music for your instrument using my materials. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and sk
ills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing music available to many. It is an inherited right and gift to enjoy a lifetime of personal satisfaction from playing a musical instrument. I love to help students build confidence and make progress. I help them problem solve by going through problems with them. I teach "how to think" and how to become a life long learner of the instrument. I love the challenge of finding ways to help students become successful at every step of the way. I am excited and enthused to be apart of student progress. I am influenced by many 20th Century performers including Van Cliburn, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Erroll Garner, Yudi Menuhin, Issac Stern and Horowitz among others. I am passionate in my teaching about providing an effective solution to my student's needs. I am pleased to announce my teaching has awarded a cello student a spot at Del Sol music high school for the 2017-2018 school year. this student of mine passed an audition January of 2017 as a result of my teaching. The student worked very hard and followed my instruction very well. Congratulations!! I am also pleased to announce two of my cello students have both passed auditions to play in the Las Vegas Youth Orchestra starting in September 2017. They both auditioned during May 2017. Congratulations to both of you!!! I also had a violin student who passed auditions for LVA (Las Vegas Academy) a couple of years ago. I have no connection to these organizations. These students all worked hard and followed my instruction. I can help you learn as well. Recently with the development of "octave" strings, if you have been split between learning violin, viola, or cello; these strings installed on a violin or viola make the instrument sound like a cello. It is really something. They are tuned an octave below, so they sound very low. A lot of cello music will have to be transcribed for owners of these instruments installed with "octave" strings. Videos can be found on YOU TUBE of these instruments played. They are ordinary violins or violas strung up with thicker strings to sound an octave below.

I am a professional educator who works with both children and adults, and has the patience to help them. I am a performer who has over 30 years of public experience in solo playing as well as ensemble work. I have performed at Nordstrom for nine years, and performed at many private functions. I have performed classical as well as jazz music as part as my performance experience. I have taught private lessons for well over 17 years. I'm sorry, as of Summer 2016 I do not travel to student locations. I teach at my studio. If you are among the many parents who home-school your children, you should consider music lessons for them. There are many benefits of home-schooling, but unfortunately students miss out on specials. Practicing an instrument can make up for that and also teach critical learning habits and personal skills toward learning in general.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in personalizing your approach to the strangeness of the instrument. You need to learn much about posture, and proper tone production within the first year. Method books are not "how to" books. You need a teacher to guide you toward becoming familiar with the instrument. You also need to learn how to listen to the sounds you make as you play. To develop "musical independence" you need to become musically literate, develop tone production skills, and internalize a steady beat. Rhythm and tone are basic concepts that must be mastered to maximize pleasure in playing your instrument. Learning how to problem solve is another skill I teach so you can help yourself toward progress.
I believe in using the instrument in daily activities such as playing "Happy Birthday" at family get together. Christmas Songs or Hanukkah Songs can bring much joy during December family parties.
A musician in the house brings much joy during holidays and celebrations; and the families are brought closer together. Memories are created and last forever. Playing an instrument is exciting and expresses what can not be said using words. I believe in teaching students based on their strengths, and building upon them. I am excited to help you learn!!

I only teach in my own studio. I do not travel anymore.

You can advance quickly if you are taught to listen to yourself and follow my instruction. I will guide you every step of the way to understand how music making works. Music lessons are fun and enjoyable. I am pleased to guide you through your learning every step of the way. My students in Las Vegas have had much success with my teaching and guidance. I will succeed where others fail. You will reap the benefits of my professional instruction. I bring a wealth of teaching experience, teacher training, and professional playing experience to every lesson. Most music store studio instructors have very little or no teacher training. Playing experience does not make one a helpful teacher. Failure to learn "how to" teach along with not earning any teaching credentials will not make a satisfying music instructor.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano 5'1', Digital Piano 88 Keys, Violin, Viola, Bass Guitars ( 5 String Fretless), electric guitar (Fender), Upright Bass 3/4 Size French/German Bows.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki for string instruments. Thompson, Schaum for piano. Blues, Jazz and " Real Book " for jazz piano as well as Frank Mantooth books for chords. I also create materials to suit individual student needs. Classical Piano Volumes.

About Monique
I specialize in teaching students with autism or other similar behavioral/learning challenges. I am a Registered Behavior Tech with a graduate level degree who is currently pursuing a post graduate certificate to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I am trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapies.

I have been sharing the joy of playing guitar with others since 1983. I attended Guitar Institute of Technology from September 1984 to September 1985 and still hold the title as the youngest female graduate at the school to this day. I later earned a Masters degree in teaching and learning to enhance my skills as a teacher in music and in other areas of education; but I learned some very valuable skills in my graduate program that give me an edge over teachers without an advanced degree. I have studied how people learn,
how learning styles vary and how to identify and accommodate various learning styles in order to get the most from each individual student and teach each student in the most effective manner according to their particular learning style.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I may have formal training in teaching, my actual approach is very holistic. I like to get to know my students; I want to know about them- what kind of music they are interested in and how they learn best. Once I determine the type of learner that I am working with and what the student would like to achieve, I then use that to develop an individualized approach for that student. I believe that fundamentals are necessary and good, but I also believe that those fundamentals should be put to use in a manner that accommodates the student and their particular likes and musical goals as quickly as possible. What good are concepts without application? I want to see students playing with skill AND with joy because they are able to play what they love to listen to and even more....I like to see students create their own music with the skills that they acquire.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student needs instrument, writing tools, paper, CD player or MP3 player.

*** Specialties ***
(Autism Spectrum Disorders
ABA trained)
I don't necessarily specialize in any particular method, especially given the fact that I am accustomed to customizing curriculum in the educational realm. I evaluate each student's individual styles, abilities and desires with regard to what they want to learn.

Monique is a great teacher

I am delighted with Monique. She is very professional and is very comfortable teaching. The lessons have just the right pace and she is good at building on fundamentals. As an adult learner, I am glad to have a mature teacher I feel comfortable with. That rapport is an important element for me as a beginning student.

About Terri
At age nine I began piano and clarinet lessons and continued my music studies throughout high school and into college. I played in numerous solo and ensemble festivals, honor bands, piano recitals, adjudicated piano and soloist competitions, scholarship competitions and numerous concerts. I learned at a very young age that enthusiasm and creativity expressed by my teachers played an integral role in my motivation to succeed. My experience playing in band, orchestra, ensembles and as a soloist, gives me an enhanced ability to convey lessons in harmony either played between hands or in duets/ensembles.
Because I also have a strong background in ballet and ballroom dance, I utilize these talents to reinforce time signature and rhythm lessons. It's amazing to see how my students transfer the rhythm from their feet to their fingertips accurat
ely. This method also helps them visualize and interpret the music in a more satisfying manner.
Music is the centrifugal force in my life which I joyfully extend to my family and students. I am the proud mother of four children who grew up in a musical home; three of them are proficient, award-winning pianists. My students are also award-winning competitors in the Lisa Fiorenza Junior Piano Competition, Las Vegas, NV.
I have enjoyed teaching piano students ranging in age from 3 to 80 years old. Let's Make A Joyful Noise Together!

About Britni
I have been studying the voice and healthy vocal
methods for over a decade. Previously, I was a Certified Speech Level Singing (SLS) Instructor under Maestro Seth Riggs, and am now currently a Certified Institute for Vocal
Advancement (IVA) Instructor.

I am very passionate about singing and teaching, and have so much fun doing so. As a voice instructor I require of myself to constantly excel and commit to a number of educational
hours and events each year. This process encourages me to be a teacher who is constantly growing and bettering myself for my students. I am passionate about continuously advancing my education by observing Master Teacher's from
around the world instruct both vocal pedagogy and performance development courses.
 My devotion is to help each student find confidence, strength, and agility in their own unique v
oice. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to communicate and connect with people. I am quick to help my students feel at ease
and build their confidence – while also diagnosing the voice and helping the student grow and improve. 

While being fun-loving and easy-going I also take great pride in helping my students to succeed in every capacity possible.

I have studied with the acclaimed Jeffrey Skouson as both a vocal student and as a teacher. Other Master Teacher's I have at one point studied with, or under, are: Maestro Seth Riggs, Greg Enriquez, Spencer Welch, Linda Tomkinson, Kathy
Kennedy, John Henny, Dave Stroud, Guy Babusek, Stephanie Borm, and more.

 I am immensely passionate about teaching and furthering my education and experience, and am completely devoted to continuously educate myself to be a first-class teacher for my students. Come on in and enjoy the fun of singing!

*** Lesson Details ***
While studying voice may have its challenges and frustrations,
it still can be (& should be!) enjoyable and inspiring!

In our lessons you will spend the first half vocalizing and warming up the voice, and then the second half working on repertoire. I will record your vocalices (on a CD or other device) for you to practice with for the week. I am not a genre teacher, but a technique teacher. With whatever genre you wish to sing you can apply the technique. I will work with you on your song to change vowels and notes where needed, and also help you to connect to the story of the song.

I try to make the environment I teach in stress-free and
enjoyable. Before coming to a first lesson a student may feel intimidated or nervous, but please keep in mind that I am not here to judge or tear-down a student... Instead I am here to take them where they are at and help them to improve and grow. I will also never ask you to do something that will harm your voice – your vocal health is my main priority. I stand behind my education and personal experiences, and will only deliver my personal best to you.

As stress-free as my lessons are, there are still a few
expectations. I ask my students to do their own part and practice their vocalices throughout the week. The vocalices are designed to help your voice strengthen and increase in range and skill, therefore by practicing during the week you are helping your voice to continue to grow.

Come willing to learn, have fun, and make some silly noises in the meantime – you will be making some funny sounds, but they are designed to strengthen the vocal cords agility and adduction. In a nutshell, come prepared to sing! What good is a voice lesson without some singing?! Am I right?! :).
Also come prepared knowing you will make mistakes – mistakes are an important part of learning, and the sooner we stop expecting perfection is actually when we start to learn & grow the best. I do not expect perfection, just growth! And most of all, come prepared to have fun and to learn!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a piano to play scales, computer to record lessons and play songs, a sound system for music, a microphone & stage for performances/showcases (which are done at least twice a year), and a waiting area.
My current studio location is at a Theatre Company located in Henderson near 215 & Gibson. Parents are welcome to sit in the lobby or relax in their car as their child has their voice lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I studied the Speech Level Singing (SLS) method for over 8 years, and was a certified teacher in the method for over 2 years. I am currently now a certified teacher with the Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA). I have requirements within my certifications to test yearly with a Master Teacher to ensure I am teaching healthy & proper technique. I specialize in technique and, regarding genres, I focus mostly on Broadway or Pop. However, through the technique I teach, I can help any genre of singer improve their vocal abilities.

About Michael
I moved to Las Vegas in August to pursue a doctorate of music in guitar performance. I'm also teaching at UNLV part time, and want to expand my teaching into the local community. I've been teaching for many years now, at universities, music stores and private in-home lessons like I'm offering on this site.

I aim to give my students the skills to pursue whatever they would like on the guitar. I'm a professional classical guitarist, but I got my start playing rock and roll and am comfortable teaching a variety of genres if the student wants to learn a specific style. I feel I am a great teacher for total beginners as well, I make sure the student has a rounded approach and avoids developing bad habits.

I sat in on every lesson Michael gave my daughter, who had not studied guitar before. He uses the time effectively, balancing sight reading, repertoire development, music theory (which he presents in very practical and immediately useful ways), and at all times instilling the technique necessary to sustain rapid progress. My daughter really enjoyed studying with him, and I really enjoyed watching her go from a blank slate to a guitarist you want to listen to. I completely and unreservedly endorse this teacher.

About Scarlet
My name is Scarlet. I have been playing guitar for 8 years. I currently attend the UNLV School of Music. I am studying to become a music teacher. As an aspiring teacher, I am educated on how to work with students with special needs. I am also educated on how to work with students from diverse backgrounds. I can adapt my lessons to meet you or your child's needs.

In high school, I started learning how to read music, music theory and, of course, how to play guitar! After school, I would spend hours upon hours singing and accompanying myself to my favorite songs. I loved that feeling so much that I decided to go to school for music and become a music teacher.

Classical guitar is my specialty, but I excited to teach other genres of music. At this time, I do not offer electric guitar lessons. I encourage you to learn finger-style before
you move on to electric guitar. You will be able to transfer what you learn with me onto the electric guitar.

***I will customize our lessons for your pace. No experience is needed. I look forward to our lessons!

About Akiko
Hello! I have been playing the piano ever since I was 6 year's old, and have been teaching piano over 15 years. I began teaching piano when I was working on my Bachelor's Degree in Music and also taught vocal music at a local elementary school. After receiving a B.A. and a teaching license, I have taught vocal music at elementary schools and choir at both middle and high schools. Because of this extensive teaching experience at schools, I am good with young children and teens.

Even as a pianist, I strongly believe that ear training and solfege singing play a big role in learning to play piano. In addition to teaching playing technique and artistry, my lessons include music theory, ear training, sight-reading and solfege singing. I specialize in classical music.

I homeschool my daughter, so I am available during the day to especi
ally teach homeschool children and their families. I am fun, organized, very patient, and I am an excellent teacher. I can't wait to hear from you!
