Kyle K.

Cleveland, OH

About Kyle

I love music! To me, it's a way of life. From listening to playing to writing and of course teaching. I grew up with music at school and home. My dad was a piano player and teacher so music has been a part of my life since day one and I want to share what I have learned. Everyone has a unique musical talent and I enjoy helping them find it. I believe that anyone can be an excellent musician. Playing an instrument should be a fun and creative adventure. Whether it's strumming at home, playing out in the clubs, or writing the next big hit, I will do my best to get you there!

My musica
l life began when I was in 5th grade and my dad bought me a saxophone, which I played for over 10 years. I quickly learned how fast I could improve if I simply kept playing. When I hit my teen years I fell in love with rock music and mowed enough lawns to buy my first guitar. I jammed and wrote songs with many other musicians and several bands. We played countless shows and released a few albums. Now I write music for TV, Film, Video Games, and other media outlets and I'm having a blast!

I started teaching 7 years ago and found that it is one of my favorite things to do. Helping others grow into great musicians is rewarding and fun. I've learned that from grade school to retirement, each student is a unique and special individual. My lessons reflect that fact so that we can reach all your goals together. *My personal goal is to get my students to understand and write music that will stay with them and encourage them to continue.

All lessons take place in my fully operational Digital Recording Studio and dedicated lesson room. Gaining real world playing experience through technology is a definite advantage over traditional lessons. This also allows us to capture ideas when songwriting and provides a unique practice experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone is different, and every lesson should be suited to fit the individual.

Depending on the type of lessons (guitar, bass, music production, theory) the style teaching will be very different. It's all about YOUR goals and needs. I will get you to where you want to go!

Each student is going to receive lessons based on their preferences of genre and style of music they desire to play. I expect my students to practice regularly and have a good time as their abilities and knowledge grow. By working together, we can focus on goals and problem solving to get you to the next level of play. Most importantly, we are going to have a blast while we learn to play music!

Imagine looking back years down the line, listening to something you wrote and hearing the improvements and your own personal music history. That's what writing and recording as you learn is all about.

*We'll start slow and build your knowledge base with each lesson.
*You can expect to understand what you are playing AND be able to Write Your Own Songs.
*You will be given everything you'll need to succeed.

I have several reference books, videos, and charts; plus I can show you smart phone apps and websites that will help you learn and practice! We will learn songs, write songs, and record songs. I provide jam tracks for all my students to play along too and offer to record their own music for the same purpose. We also keep a running journal that we use each week. This allows the student to look back, see improvement and be encouraged to continue!

Within 6 months you can expect to understand how songs are built (including chords and scales), be able to play several, and feel comfortable with trying your own skills as a songwriter or guitar player.

Let's start playing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Comfortable and fully operational Digital Recording home studio & music room w/ recording capabilities, computer, keyboard, amps, books, videos, various guitars and bass, tons of music to listen to and study, FREE Wifi and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not travel. My studio is the #1 advantage for learning!

*** Specialties ***
*Instruments: Rock, Blues, Metal, Indy, Folk and Acoustic styles.
*Production: Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Programming.
*General Music: Theory, Songwriting, Producing.

I personalize all my lessons for the students needs and interests. I use several different reference materials including: The Ultimate First Guitar Book, The Guitar Handbook, Shredding Guitar, Guitar Solo Strategies, and more. All my students learn theory and how to use it in song play and songwriting. I have them write short songs, record them, and finally use those songs to jam out their scales and use theory.

So far I can tell that taking lessons with Kyle is going to be great. He explains things in a way that is easy to understand, gives you things to work on, and doesn't mind going over something again. You feel comfortable, and work at a pace that makes sense for you. He is also a really funny & down to Earth guy.

Great instructor. Has a lot of background knowledge, which may be intimdating to some. But he does a good job of identifying strengths and weaknesses upon which to work.

Eric was great. He is obviously very knowledgeable but he is also easy to talk to and seemed to quickly understand what I knew and what I didn't. A good communicator and his set up for the lessons was very comfortable and easy to find. One hour lesson flew by!

After my first lesson I can see Eric is ready , willing and quite capable of taking on the challenge to work with me as an adult beginner on the instrument. He took the time to really get a good idea of where my skill level currently is and gave clear instruction on exercises to use in order to build from there. Furthermore, he gives a clear picture of the path the instruction will follow in order to get to the level of playing that I want to achieve.
Eric's personality combined with the spacious home studio setting provides a comfortable atmosphere of learning without distractions.
Not only do I feel Eric will be a good instructor for me but, I will also be scheduling my daughter for lessons with him to learn her third instrument, the guitar. So yes, I do recommend him for lessons!

I have been taking lessons with Corbett for over 8 years. He's very knowledgeable about what he teaches, and conveys his lessons clearly so no matter what age I was, I knew how to do what we were going over. He's friendly and easy to get along with, and I've never felt that I wasn't learning something or getting the best lesson with him. Corbett's a great choice for a teacher for anyone from beginner to advanced.

Super knowledgeable, cool, frustratingly skilled. Bring him something cool and he'll figure it out in a few minutes as you then struggle for a month to get it. Been going to see him nearly 10 years or so and is worth every penny.

How to Improve Sight Reading Skills on the Piano
If you really want to advance your piano playing, mastering the art of sight reading can take you far. But if you're struggling, don't worry.

In fact, there are basic things you can do every day that will improve your dexterity and translate to your piano skills. Try t

5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano
Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha
In the Pits: How to Succeed as an Orchestral Pianist

As a piano student, you may yearn to make music with others, and if you're naturally drawn toward group music making, it may be that you already study an orchestral instrument, or sing with a choir. You may also have extended your piano training to accompany some of your friends for concerts or exams, or explored the wide variety of chamber music repertoire available involving the piano.
