Robert D.

Phoenix, AZ

About Robert

Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I remember. (I used to give concerts for all the family gatherings!) I've been formally performing in music for over 30 years. I have formal training and 12 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you!

*** Lesson Details ***
All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your perform
ance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a dedicated music room, stocked with guitars, basses, and practice amp, keyboard and computers with recording software.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard, practice amp, and/or instrument cords. I expect the student to provide his/her own instrument, and prefer they have an amplifier for electric instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I teach in all genres, but have experience in rock, alternative, pop, jazz, and even music theater.

Kristilyn W.

Tempe, AZ

About Kristilyn

I am a classically trained bassoonist with a passion for all types of music. I received my Doctorate of Musical Arts (DMA) in bassoon performance from the Ohio State University, and my Masters of Music in bassoon performance from Arizona State University.

In addition to teaching at Grand Canyon University and performing with symphonies and classical chamber music groups all over the country, I'm also a founding member of the band Dry River Yacht Club. We've gone on tours, played music festivals, and recorded 3 studio albums.

I love working with students on an individual level, finding o
ut what motivates and inspires them, and helping each one accomplish his or her personal goals. Lessons with me focus on technical precision while also developing listening skills, focus, sensitivity, and appreciation for refinement and beauty.

Jill M.

Glendale, AZ

About Jill

I have been a professional musician for over 35 years and have taught beginning piano and oboe privately and in group classes. For the past 18 years, I've taught for Deer Valley Unified School District. I will make your lessons fun and exciting and teach to your abilities. I also use music apps and games that keep students interested for longer than just sitting at the piano. I believe that all children are inherently musical and the study of music can help a student in all aspects of their life, not just music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In addition to the standard music stands, metronome,
tuners and music, I have digital recording equipment for student's audition recordings. I have helped college bound students get into serious music programs like Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. For students ages 5 to 9 years old, I recommend the recorder as a introductory woodwind before learning the oboe.

My 13 yr old son has been taking piano lessons with Jill for a few months. I have seen a tremendous improvement in his focus and confidence. He is doing well with learning to read notes and practices every day with out a reminder. I'm very happy with Jill ' s teaching style. We will continue lessons for the foreseeable future until she feels he mastered piano.

Daniel W.

Tempe, AZ

About Daniel

I am very interested in helping my students become, above all else, musicians. To me, this means bringing the music off the page, and finding/playing what has not been written in ink. Too often, I see musicians merely play the notes and put no emotion into their music. That is not what music is about. Our job is to make the audience feel something, and if we cannot do this we have failed as musicians.

I received my Bachelor of Music from Central Michigan University and recently received my master's degree in Tuba Performance at Arizona State University (December 2015) and recently was
selected as the 1st place winner in the International Tuba and Euphonium Association's Tuba Artist solo competition.

Currently, I can teach beginning piano, trumpet and trombone, and all skill levels of tuba and euphonium players.

I was in band with Dylan in high school. He was always the best player, and whenever our director was gone, she had him run rehearsal while the sub just sat and watched. Everyone in the band liked him and looked up to him.

Dylan taught my son at Great Expectations Academy about four years ago, when he was in middle school. I couldn't be more proud of my son's improvement, and David always was always very happy coming home from school when Dylan came in to teach lessons.

Learning to Read Music: An Introduction for Singers
Learning to read music can be a daunting task for beginner singers! Here, Ann Arbor, MI voice teacher Elaina R. shows you how to get started...   Not to point out the obvious, but as singers, we don’t have keys on our instrument.
