About Kay
I have been teaching Piano for 20 years now. I have taught students from age 2 1/2 - Adult. I was self-taught when I was a kid and begun taking formal lessons as a very young adult in my early twenties. I graduated from CSULB with my BA in Music with a concentration on Voice. As a Music major, you spend a lot of time at the Piano. I became a member of MTAC in 2004 and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota in 1998. I have a great passion for Music and a bigger passion for the Piano and sharing the wonders of how beautiful the Piano really is.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my opinion, piano is the hardest instrument to learn, but the most rewarding. If you can play piano you can pretty much play any instrument. I believe that a piano lesson should be fun. I'm a strict teacher with a smile and a giggle. I push my students to greatness while helping t
hem love the piano through the good times and the bad. I'm a very encouraging but honest teacher. I compliment when warranted and I assess incorrect performances in an honest, but encouraging manner. I always let a student know that, though their performance was not their best, they can and will improve. It's always only a matter of time. I use the Schaum and Nevin series depending on the student's personality. I teach Classical and Pop Music. It's important for a student to learn the Classics and gain the ability to play things they like. I find the happy balance between the two. I teach Beginning to Intermediate levels. I also like to incorporate Music theory into the lessons because understanding the mechanics of Music helps make playing and creating Music much easier to accomplish. A typical lesson will start off with a hand drill warm up. We then will move on to the lesson book and repertoire. Theory will be assigned as homework. I look it over at the beginning of the lesson and discuss it and answer any questions in the last five minutes of class. Baby lessons go as followed: 15 mins. of play time and 15 mins of Music theory. I like to keep structure in my lessons but sprinkle a little joy and laughter to keep the atmosphere light. It makes for a much more attentive Piano student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a Piano or Keyboard of some sort. I may provide music on occasion.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and Pop

My specialty is teaching tap as a musical instrument. For me, the movement serves the sound rather than a visual effect. No matter if you're a beginning, intermediate or advanced student, you will discover the potential of the human body to help internalize musical concepts such as phrasing, form, improvisation, and self-expression, as well as gain organic access to complex musical structures. Whether your focus is on building tap dance skills, seeking to connect body and mind in a profound and musical way, or are a musician who wants to become more connected and physically involved with the groove within - you are in the right place with me. The tap steps are merely tools to access your unique voice. My tap lessons combine technique, improvisation, and combinations with mindfulness, breathing, and body awareness exercises. Find the groove that is within you!

About Sandra
I am a tap dance musician, writer, and visual artist.
My performance credits include Thomas Marek's show NOLA, the sound art/tap performance Homöostep, the Tap Ahead Festival, and Daniel Luka's T.A.P. My current main project is Neosole, which explores tap as a music instrument, as a full member of the rhythm section, not just soloing as a gimmick on top of the music, but being fully integrated, comping and providing a foundation for the musical context.
I have been invited to teach at renowned facilities such as tanzhaus nrw, tap club, and Rebeltanz, and to be a tap dancer in residence at Thomas Marek's Studio Footprints.
My artistic works have been featured in publications such as Average Art, The Tap Love Tour Podcast, What Moves You, and Not Random Art.
I first started tap dancing at the age of 10 under the direction of my Mom.
From then on, I was influenced by many different teachers and mentors, such as Barbara Duffy, Sebastian Weber, Pia Neises, Derick Grant, Sarah Petronio, and Heather Cornell, to only name a few. I graduated from the tap dance apprenticeship S.O.N.T.I. with magna cum laude.
I consider myself a musician, and the tap shoes are my instrument. My style is deeply rooted in the aesthetic of jazz music and heavily shaped by playing in numerous jam sessions around Europe and New York City, however, my art transcends the boundaries of genres. It is merely a tool to create the most genuine and sophisticated expression possible. A catalyst to explore art as an extension of the human experience.
I call myself a tap dance musician because neither dance nor music could exist without the other. However, I don't move to look a certain way, I move to sound a certain way.

I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do!

Tap is a fun style of dance that combines percussive footwork and rhythmic choreography for a great workout. My tap lessons include a warm up, technical training, across the floor, choreography, and improvisation. We begin with the basics while focusing on correct technique to build a solid foundation and style. From there we continue to build skills by adding more advanced patterns, intricate footwork, challenging techniques, and choreography. From classical roots to more contemporary adaptations, tap offers exciting dance training to people of every age and skill level.

Book Tap lessons if you're looking to:
-Strengthen and tone your legs, core, backside, and more
-Increase stamina and endurance
-Improve balance
-Understand how to count music and find a beat
-Improve coordination
-Understand musicality, tempo, and timing
-Find and maintain rhythm with and without music
-Improve your dancing to music

I had not taken a dance class in over 30 years so I was a little nervous about my first class back. Jessica immediately made me feel at ease - she was very clear and precise in explaining the basic steps and my confidence was restored! Her class is challenging yet a lot of fun! I would highly recommend her for children as well as adults.

I teach Beginner and Intermediate tap, and I teach with all styles of fun music of all different tempos. Repetition is key, and to simply learn what steps are what is one thing, but to really master the clarity of sound and develop the muscles in your feet to be able to develop stamina and keep the rhythm requires consistent practice! My tap lessons are thorough and cater to all levels (especially if you are experienced and need to brush up on some basics). I also put together a combination of all the steps from the lesson so you have something to jam with even after our lesson. Spread the tap!

About Laura
I am a professional musical theatre performer with a rich background in tap. I graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Musical Theatre.

Musical theater students can expect to improve in just a few lessons, feeling more calm, focused, and confident in their performance abilities. I focus on audition technique, whether you are practicing a monologue or a musical theatre song. I teach students how to relax, focus, and meditate prior to their audition so that they can control what only THEY can control in the audition room. I also have many tips and pointers on what and what NOT to do at auditions (based on personal experience!) Auditioning is truly an art, and it takes practice and a healthy mindset to persevere through! I also am able to coach monologues and songs for performance purposes.

Tap student
s can expect to improve weekly in their tap dance technique. I teach students to relax and apply foundational techniques in order to achieve clean tap dance rhythms and sounds . I can help any student to tap with freedom, confidence, and their own unique expression will follow suit.

I teach tap students of various ages and experience levels. I studied tap for 13 plus years. I can teach students to count each tap rhythm, and to learn what each tap step is called (which is also super helpful for tap auditions when they are calling out steps quickly!)

My greatest inspiration was my college tap instructor, Aaron Tolson. I studied with him for 2 years, and I continued to study in NYC at Steps on Broadway and Broadway Dance Center. I currently reside on the beautiful island of Maui, HI, and am in the midst of starting a "traveling tap tutor" company where I can go directly to families and teach their kids the wonderful art of tap one-on-one. I love to teach students who want to become dynamic tappers!

My personal passion is theatrical tap but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better tap dancer!
