About Tim

My wife and I have been teaching piano lessons in the Kansas City area for more than 20 years. We have studios in our home; she teaches upstairs and I teach downstairs! I am currently accepting new students and welcome the opportunity to see them grow and experience the joy of piano playing.

While some of my piano students are involved in church music, I also teach students in the entire Kansas City area and we cover every genre: classical, country, pop, rock and Broadway styles. I encourage each pianist to discover his or her own passion for playing!

I have more than 33 years of experience teaching private piano students and look forward to many, many more. Let me help you learn to play the piano with excellence and have a lot of fun in the process!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have a teaching environment

that is professional and conducive to learning. My lessons include instruction in theory, technique and exposure to a variety of musical styles. Beginners will learn to play songs within 3 months time and gradually expand their repertoires to include more difficult piano pieces!

Beginning students are taught fundamental skills that apply to all piano players such as scales and arpeggios. Hanon exercises are used and chromatic scales are learned as well. I use Alfred teaching materials but not exclusively.

I encourage students to find their own favorites to play and lessons are tailored to meet the goals of the student. If your desire is to become a classical pianist, we concentrate on works of the masters. If you are wanting to improvise with a jazz band, we work toward ear training with the jazz greats! If you would like to play in a church worship service, we will focus our attention on service playing and playing worship songs by ear, too.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Den: upright, couch and recliner, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Specialties ***
Classical and church music

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Nick coached my daughter, Ann, through her South Bay Teen Idol Competition, in which she was a finalist. Ann was competing against singers with more years of experience, but the superior quality of Nick's instruction enabled her to be competitive.

About David

I am a 32-year old Massachusetts native and have been playing music since I was 8 years old, starting on the piano with a wonderful teacher in Beverly who also went to Berklee. I picked up the guitar and the bass in high school and got into rock, jazz and blues and haven't looked back. I received a bachelors degree from Berklee in 2012 with a major in Professional Music and minor in Music Education.

Music study is great exercise for your brain. It works both the left and right hemispheres of the brain simultaneously because you are thinking both creatively and logically/mathematically at the same time.

I am happy teaching students at any level, even if you have never picked up an instrument before. I can work with you and get you on the path to being the kind of musician you want to be.

*** Lesson Details ***
I custom tailo

r my lessons to meet a students individual needs. I am a serious teacher, but I am a laid back person. I am easy going, but I will make sure you learn what you need to learn. I can guarantee after 4 or 5 lessons with me, you will have tripled your knowledge of chords, scales, technique, and song repertoire. I am very patient and am happy to work with students of all ages and skill levels.

I encourage mid to upper level students to bring in songs they want to learn (if they are at the right level) and I will transcribe them on the spot and go through them with you step by step.

If you want to learn how to play all your favorite songs, I am the teacher for you. I won't make you play music you aren't really interested in, but I will make recommendations for songs to improve your playing and include music theory so that you understand what you are playing and why you are playing it. The point of playing music is to HAVE FUN, after all.

Sam is great with my 10 year old daughter. He is easy going and makes the flute lessons fun and my daughter enjoys her weekly hour lesson. We let Sam know what our goals were and he has created a plan accordingly.

Sam can do both in-home and online lessons. The in-home lessons are great, no need to travel.

About Mandie

Hello, future pianists! My name is Mandie (or Miss Mandie, as my younger students call me). I have been playing the piano for twenty years, and I’ve been teaching since high school, over 12 years ago! I received my bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance from Cornerstone University, but teaching has always been my first love. Teaching piano is so much fun for me; during the lessons we joke around and have so much fun, my students usually don’t even realize how much they are learning. For my youngest students, we dance and color and sing right alongside learning piano. I want my students to have a good foundation and knowledge of the piano, but I want them to enjoy the process. That being said, for those of you who are looking for a more traditional education, I have a very deep knowledge of classical piano and training so I will gladly put

away my crayons and teach that sort of lesson! If any of this sounds like something you or your child would resonate with, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Mandie is very accommodating and includes the parent in weekly conversations. She is very patient with my daughter who loves the piano but has ADHD. She has worked with my daughter for two years now and we just want her to enjoy music. Her recital duet was by far the best act! It was unique and captured my daughter love to be different!
Mandie’s ability to engage and not discourage my daughter makes my heart happy.
Mandie is very accommodating with scheduling and makeups. Whether you are interested in competition level piano or just the love of music Mandie is the right teacher for you.

"Gregory's skill and knowledge of guitar is absolutely outstanding! The best part is that his lessons are delivered in a way that are easy to understand an

"This was a great first lesson with Kyle. He was very informative and inspiring and patient with me and gave me a lot of good ideas on how I can learn to w
rite good songs. Definitely several points above average!"

"Even though I am a novice, she taught me from reading notes to how to appreciate music by explaining very well. But I had to do what I had to do, HW and p

I will strongly recommend her to anyone."

"Andrew's fantastic musicianship mixed with a low key personality,
is the perfect recipe for a great music instructor.
Aspiring bass players should capit
alize on his ability to play
both fluid single note lines-and this is key-his incredibly
funky bottom end. Non-bassists, never fear. He also has the solid music
theory thing down so there is something for everyone to take your musical knowledge to the next level."

"Randall is an amazing instructor. Very laid back, easy going and extremely knowledgeable.
He provides just the right amount of positive reinforcement spr
inkled with a little constructive criticism which helps motivate me to be a better student. He provides that subtle nudge for me to learn something new without me realizing it. Did I mention, He makes learning a new instrument FUN…."

"Charlottes a great teacher! I’m glad I decided to take the plunge and take lessons again"
Claudia
"My daughter is very happy taking piano classes with Julia. She is an excellent teacher! With only a few classes my daughter feels confident to play the
piano. Thanks Julia!"

Rob D
"Carla has escalated both my acoustic and electric guitar playing to unexpected levels, from just strumming songs to actually including licks, riffs, and l
eads to sound more like the pros.
with her experience and knowledge, she has filled in critical lapses in my musical theory. Later, I decided to learn short-scale bass, and Carla was right there to show me the way.
If you've EVER wanted to learn (or pick back again) any style of guitar, bass, electric, acoustic, keyboard, piano, ukulele, kazoo, (or whatever) contact Carla ASAP for lessons. She gives lessons to students all across the USA, ONLINE through Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or any conference app you want to use, at your convenience, NEVER needing to drive through Jersey, and never needing to leave your home.
She custom tailors lessons to all levels. Great experience! Students even "Zoom" in to perform at her recitals on a big screen TV. Give her a call, she's the rare, amazing, patient teacher you've been searching for. You won't be disappointed."
