Wendy H.

Peyton, CO

If you take singing lessons with me, you can expect to be able to sing well with a good range and added texture to your voice. You will also have a basic understanding of how music works and how to follow the directions that appear in written music. I use vocal and breathing exercises to strengthen and build your foundation. I let the student choose the music that they would like to sing as we learn and practice the concepts with all styles of music. There are many choices from pop, country, broadway, show tunes, Christian, and classical music that the student can sing. I believe that lessons should be take every week as it keeps the learning progress going and keeps the interest of the student. If you are taking singing lessons, I highly recommend taking an instrument along with it. It helps the understanding of how music works and how to read music. I believe lessons should be fun but also hard work.

About Wendy

With music programs being eliminated from many school's education, I feel it is even more important than ever for children, off all ages, to participate in some form of musical experience. Being a piano teacher for over twenty five years, I have seen many benefits for those taking music lessons. Some of these benefits are building self esteem and confidence, learning to focus, developing mental discipline, overcoming the fear of getting up in front of crowds, not to mention being able to play songs that we enjoy.

My philosophy of music is that you don't have to be an expert to be abl
e to enjoy playing an instrument. It is not that difficult to learn to play piano or guitar; it just takes a little time and effort. I believe that practicing doesn't have to be hours a day either, unless you want to be a concert pianist or guitarist, but you can accomplish a lot with 15 to 30 minutes of practice each day. There is time to fit music in with many other activities that we like to do. So keep that in mind as you are deciding how you can fit music lessons into your daily schedule.

I studied guitar for five years, then began to take piano lessons which continued through many years of my life. I studied under many classical teachers, and teaching methods such as Royal Conservatory of Music and Western Board. These lessons also included Music Theory. As I developed as a musician, I began to play piano and guitar in churches for worship services. I also accompanied soloists, both vocal and instrumental, and played for many special events such as weddings, funerals, graduations, etc. Eventually, I stepped into music ministry, which included planning music for church services, working with children's music programs, leading, rehearsing, and directing choirs etc. I have taught choir and music theory in schools over the years, as well.

At some point in my life, I decided it was important for me to go for a music degree. This degree gave me four years of classical vocal training, more classical piano instruction, and ensemble work. It also gave me more experience with directing choirs and orchestras.

My formal education is: Bachelor of Arts in Music Ministry with Applied Music.

Church Piano Certification

College Level Music Theory and Classical Voice

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons from me, students can expect to work hard, but have lots of fun. Their music training will be very detailed and will include all aspects of learning music. In addition to learning how to read music and play piano or guitar well, students will learn theory and technic. Theory teaches students the understanding of how music is written; this will assist them in the future is their interests turn to writing and arranging music. Technique is the exercises for their fingers which teaches them control and agility. I accept students of all ages and abilities up to advanced intermediate levels in piano, guitar, and music theory. I accept beginning vocal students.

Piano lessons consist of learning to play and read music. Students can expect to be classically trained, but will also get to choose and play songs or musical styles that they enjoy. Theory and technique will be included in their study program.

Guitar lessons consist of learning how to play both notes and chords, and how to read both notes and chords, as well as lead sheets specifically written for guitar. Students will also learn the written theory for guitar. I like to include extra books of songs or music styles that the students like. This encourages them to learn and practice because they are playing something that they know and like to play.

Beginning classical vocal students will learn basic breathing technics, vocal exercises and will sings a variety of songs. I don't start out with classical vocal unless that is what the student wants. I let them choose music that they like to sing, as we can learn and practice vocal concepts with all types of music. I encourage vocal students to take at least basic piano lessons, so they can learn to read and understand musical concepts.

Music theory goes along with any instrument and vocal instruction. Piano theory is the basis for all music theory. I have the ability to teach through college level theory for those that are interested in writing or arranging music or wanting to have this level of theory to go along with their musical instrument.

Practice times start at 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week for beginners. As students progress, their practice time increases. Advanced beginners will practice 30 minutes a day, early intermediate level will practice 45 minutes a day, and intermediate level will practice at least 1 hour a day.

I encourage students to take one lesson a week for 1/2 hour. As they advance, then this may increase to a 45 minute lesson, once a week, then perhaps 1 hour once a week as needed.

After 3 months, beginning students will be able to play simple folk songs with right hand melody and left hand accompaniment. At 6 months, students will have learned 3 different positions or keys on the piano, will be playing songs that are a little more complex, and can now add supplemental fun books to their lessons. I encourage my students to participate in two recitals a year. I try to make this a fun, not a stressful, time for them. I also encourage family and friends to attend and cheer on the students. If students wish to compete in music competitions or adjudications, I can assist them in doing so, as well.

There are studio locations in Colorado Springs, Colorado 80917 and Falcon, Colorado 80831

Nailed it!!!

Kay has been great working with me. I am 24 and have been teaching myself guitar for about a year and then just got stuck, I didn't know how to advance or get any better; and she has been great getting me back on track and I feel confident working on improving. I am also taking voice lessons with Kay and have never done so with anyone before and was never in choir in high school or college, and feel much more confident in my own ability. She is very good at making me feel confident and working with my difficult schedule. She has also inspired me to get back into playing piano. I played for 6 years when I was in high school and she is helping me with my musical identity. Kay is great!!!

Opera Voice · In studio
Greg Stapp is the most influential voice instructors in my life. He has a deep understanding of not only how to sing, but also how to relate his own experiences as a professional operatic bass to the aspiring student.

I studied with Greg for more than 3 years and his teaching helped me to release vocal tension and affectation, and to embrace an "honesty" that allowed me to truly express myself through singing.

I have performed many opera roles in local opera companies and Greg's technique has helped me immeasurably throughout.

Greg is a fabulous voice teacher. He helped me to work through major vocal problems and rebuild my voice to a point that I can feel good about singing solos in public. He's patient and skilled at figuring out how to keep his students from getting in their own way. His techniques are gentle on the vocal chords, unlike many other voice teachers'.. I still can't believe that he was willing to work with me. What a treasure he is.

Proper Singing Posture - What You Need to Know
Before you learn how to breathe, sing, or play any kind of instrument correctly, you need to ensure that you're creating the proper posture with your body.
