About Christian
Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taking years of private lessons with a number of teachers I also studied music and audio engineering in college. I'm constantly learning more. I keep my chops up by practicing and reading books by other professionals and songwriters. So, I have an arsenal of books and musical knowledge. When I'm not teaching I spend most of my time writing and recording my original solo music. I have a rock band that I've been playing with for over a decade. We are currently in the studio recording our first professional album.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a ver
y patient teacher. I understand that not everyone learns the same way so I specialize in breaking things down and making music as simple as it can be for each kind of student. I don't use just one method, I pull from my arsenal of acquired knowledge, books, and my own studies. I keep lessons fun and interesting. A normal lesson with me would consist of two parts the first 30 minutes we would focus on learning and practicing warm ups, exercises, licks, notes, scales, chords, arpeggios, timing, rudiments, dynamics, ear training, theory, technique, etc. And the second half we would work on a song or jam together. Depending on the age and level of student, after spending six months studying with me you will be a rock star! LOL. Well, you may not have a recording contract, but you will have gained a volume of knowledge and taken your playing up a few levels. It's all about how much time and practice you put in and how much you want it. Every student has there own pace and desire so I do my part to help them become the best that they want to be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio: drum set, practice pad, piano and keyboard, guitar amps, chairs, parents can sit in on lesson.

Broken Arrow Music Studio: drum set, guitar amp, piano, and lobby room for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in working with beginner to advanced level students. I teach all styles of music.

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 Valeria
I am a professional violinist. I have a Bachelors Degree in Music with a violin specialization and Musical Pedagogy.
Violin students can expect to improve week to week in their skills and technique. It is important to be consistent with violin classes; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with expression, intonation, and confidence.
I cannot wait to start with our lessons!
I teach violin students of all different ages. I studied classical violin for 19 years, and popular for 5 years. I am qualified to teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play popular music whether the student prefers a music sheet to read while they are playing or memorize it, depending on the student's goals
and choice.
I have performed in a Chamber Orchestra for ten years. I have toured South America and the Caribbean. I also have performed as a soloist in different ensembles and Orchestras with a vast repertoire.
My personal passion is for classical, popular, pop and rock music, it is important to understand that an accurate technique is essential to all music styles.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to improve and become a better musician and performer in every class!

My 10 year old daughter has now been taking violin lessons online with Valeria for almost a year (once a week for half the year, and now twice a week). Valeria is amazingly patient with her, but also challenges her to push herself ever farther, and gently holds her to high expectations. They work on multiple aspects, writing the notes, singling along to the music to get the beat of it, proper posture, bowing technique, etc. She works with my daughter to select some pieces that are growth pieces and some that my daughter is interested in playing. They have developed a wonderful rapport.

Valeria is also super flexible and easy to work with - she's been understanding when we needed to reschedule lessons and great at communicating with me about simple things like logistics and also about my daughter's progress. I very highly recommend her!

About Alena
As an experienced musician and piano teacher, I offer piano lessons for everyone who is willing to learn how to play the instrument and is passionate about it.
For some of us playing the piano could be a serious, life changing way of making a career as a famous musician and bringing your dream and passion to the next level.
For some of us it could be a nice hobby, where you can express your feeling and emotions by performing or composing music.
It's for you to decide but no matter what you are doing in your life, you should be passionate about it!

Being a music instructor for over 10 years and having experience teaching in Ukraine, Germany and USA, I try to combine different methods and find individual style of teaching for everyone, who is willing to learn (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).

I offer individual lesson plans a
nd music material depending on your music taste and personal needs. You don't need to worry about anything, just enjoy what you're doing and I will take care of the rest!

I have been playing piano myself for over 20 years and I would like to share my knowledge with others and have them fall in love with music as I did.

Alena is truly a master at her craft. While she is an excellent teacher and musician that easily shares her passion with students, her skill level deserves an audience. It is truly a rare occurrence that an individual possessing such unparalleled talent would be willing to teach all levels. Nevertheless, with humility and graciousness her unending love of music makes her the ABSOLUTE BEST instructor for those seeking to master the craft. This is NOT a teacher/student trying to pay her way through school. She is a tested and experienced professional fully capable of sharing her artistry and teaching all, regardless of skill level.

Now he's in New York studying with Lady Gaga's teacher and singing his own arrangements of Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, and John Mayer at Carnegie Hall while writing and recording pop songs in Nashville and the U.K. Look for his new single That's When You Know.

Christiaan enjoys seeing people succeed, so his approach to teaching is a combination of play and practice. Ultimately we sing because we want to bring people joy, yet to do so, we must hone our talents to perfection. By mixing the joy of music with disci

About Erin
I am an enthusiastic piano instructor with over eight years experience teaching beginning through intermediate students. I currently run a studio out of my home in Peachtree City, GA but am happy to travel to your location.

I began teaching piano at an early age after graduating from a Piano Pedagogy course. I furthered my education by taking a college level music theory course where I gained invaluable knowledge related to the theoretical underpinnings of musical notation. I have related teaching experience in the arts and was a dance and music & movement instructor for six years. To support my professional teaching goals I have also taken courses in child development at the collegiate level.

To stay up to date on current pedagogical methodologies, I maintain a membership to a local chapter of the Georgia Music Teachers Association.
This also allows my students to take part in an annual judging festival called Federation if this aligns with their performance goals.

I love crafting individual objectives and paths for piano education with all my students. Their goals become my goals and I strive to use all the pedagogical tools available to help them reach a rewarding level of experience with the piano. Practice is a large responsibility and undertaking by the student but I am here to coach you through proper ways to manage your time and give you exercises to help you see improvement in your playing each week.
