About Tracy
I have been playing the drum set in various bands since 2001. I have also been playing with the OKC Community Orchestra since 2009. I have played in symphonic and jazz bands and a percussion ensemble. I have taught a percussion class, private lessons, and I have been a full time music teacher in the OKC district. I have recorded in the studio also, and I enjoy doing a bit of my own production. Rocking on stage is my favorite activity! I can teach you how to be an integral part of a band and play along to your favorites. I enjoy bringing out the best in a student and teaching to his/her strengths. Let's run!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very easygoing and patient teacher. I fully understand that the drum set requires a high level of coordination, and I am mindful of this while working with students. I will begin with proper gr
ip and stroke technique as well as the use of a metronome. I will teach the student to read rhythms and drum set notation. I know how to isolate difficult patterns, break them down into understandable parts, and reintegrate them into a piece. I like to use the music that a student enjoys to relate to the written music. I have found YouTube to be an indispensable tool for this, and my students have responded very well. I will work on snare drum technique as well, because it is the primary voice on the set, and the touch and nuance required to play it well relate to the set as well. I will tailor my instruction to suit the student's learning style and preferences. I want to make the learning fun, so I will help the student quickly gain the basic skills to play along with their favorite bands. This promotes musicality as well as solid time. It will also aid in transcription, which will come with development and is a valuable tool. I will use this in tandem with technique-building exercises to form a well rounded musician. I believe that a student should have a familiarity with his/her instrument, so we will also go over the anatomy and tuning of the set. Above all, music should be fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ drum set, hand drums, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a practice pad, snare drum, and sticks. If a student wishes to have drum set lessons in his/her home, that instrument should be there.
**Please note** I do have a drum set in my home.

*** Specialties ***
For the drum set, I am the most experienced in rock, country, and bluegrass styles. I am comfortable with both Stevens and Burton grips for mallet instruments.

About Jordan
Well Rounded.

That's how I believe every man and woman should become.

Most people put more time in one field and neglect everything else, when they should be efficient in multiple studies.
Being truly brilliant, is being truly knowledgeable overall.

In my life, I gained experience in many different fields and believed that it would be best to share them all with everybody else, and help each individual become someone knowledgeable in many different aspects of life too.
Because you never know, sooner or later, someone may ask for something that only you can help them with!

My son is quickly learning to read and play notes, beats and chords - which was broken down into basics and explained well. I think this will also improve his math understanding.

Jordan was very patient and personable with my son's lesson. It was his first time learning to play his beginner acoustic guitar. Jordan began with the basics, explaining frets, chords, how to pick and precisely tune listening to an online tuner.

The tuning homework exercise was just right for his introduction. He brought along his electric guitar and explained things for us in a way that was easy to understand and pick up. He is looking forward to his lessons.

About Nan
I started to learn the violin since I was 3 years old. My mom chose this beautiful instrument for me, she thought it's convenient to carry. I came to America after I finished my music education degree in China, then I studied two years in the US for my Master's degree in violin performance. After I got my Master's degree, I found out there are still a lot more space I want to improve, so I came to California to continue my violin study and I got my Artist Diploma in violin performance. I played hundreds of concerts, including chamber and symphony concerts. I have given 5 violin solo concerts in the past years. I have been playing with the professional symphony orchestras. For the violin, no matter which area you want to improve, I can give you the most useful and effective suggestions to help you improve fast.

About Brittany
I have been playing the piano for over 20 years and have been a church musician for almost 15 years. I was classically trained however I also have played gospel and contemporary pop music for many years so that I have a wonderful blend of both worlds. I have taught piano lessons off and on as a hobby and have enjoyed it so much I am dedicating more time to this love I have of spreading music! With me you will learn more than just how to play and read music, you will also learn how to play by ear, create your own songs, and you'll be excited to learn more. I work at your pace, noticing and nurturing your strengths and encouraging you through any challenges.

Outside of teaching piano I am a Candidate for Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT). I am a wife to an amazing supportive husband and a mother of three incredible children. As
a therapist and a family woman I love working with people of all ages and cannot wait to make music with you!

About Maggie
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Oklahoma City University with a Bachelors of Music, specifically piano.

Piano and voice students can expect to improve week to week. I can help any student to play/sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano and contemporary keyboard for 20+ years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional recording artist I frequently take trips to LA and Nashville for co-writing, recording, and taking meetings. I have written with well-known writers. I love to mentor students who want to become effective,
dynamic songwriters.

My personal passion is contemporary music 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 musician!

About Jeanne
I knew I was going to be a musician when I won a talent contest at the age of 4. Not because I was so great but because they gave me money!
Needless to say I went on to study both piano and voice and later went to college on a scholarship. I earned three music degrees; BM in Vocal Performance, BM in Music Education and an MM in Opera Performance.

I taught Vocal music, K-12 for 24 years and also have a private music studio in my home.

I have performed in music theatre, opera, night clubs and even had some Rock and Roll! If it was music I wanted to experience it and somehow pass on what I learned.

All students are unique and I consider their individuality a prize! Each one brings their own dreams and goals and God leads me to help them achieve them. I consider this a sacred trust.

I am still studying piano and voice which I belie
ve helps me be a better teacher!

I also believe that the gifts that I have are meant to be used to help others. This is my calling and great joy!
