Henri B. Phoenix, AZ

About Henri

Aside from being mostly self-taught and playing drums since he could hold the pots and pans, Henri is an experienced, focused teacher and musician who really enjoys seeing students achieve their goals and desires musically. He has also studied privately with former Berklee Graduate Al Pahanish Jr (Powerman 5000), and former Capitol Records recording artist Morrison Moon.  He is a goal-oriented individual with a versatile background and a relaxed, "let's have fun while we learn" attitude. Henri believes music should always be fun and inspiring for everyone, no matter what skill level. FUN is always the focus, because if you are not having fun, why are you doing it?  Henri also has years of experience touring both nationally and internationally with several award-winning Arizona-based ...

Henri is a gem. He is the perfect combination of cool and a serious musician. He is able to win over the respect of kids and truly teach them! There is no need to look any further for a music teacher!

To start with, Henri is fun to be around, DO NOT underestimate this. I have had the strict authoritarian and the the wallflower and in both cases, I ended up not showing up so often than I just quit. It took me a few times of going to my lesson to realize what it was that made this time so different, and it is quite simply that I like being there for more than just the lesson.
In terms of his lesson quality and knowledge of the subject, I can only speak to his guitar knowledge. I guess before I begin, I should say that I am a beginner, and spend most of my time in life doing the things I have to do rather than the things I want to do. (kids) Anyhow, once again, Henri hit the mark. He asked me my goals and then challenged me to get there while not pressuring me too much to practice. (like I said, not a wallflower, and not an authoritarian) Some lessons were theory, scales, and or chords, and some were just me learning a song, which is essentially the fun way of learning chords and picking techniques.
At the end of the day, the entire experience has exceeded my expectations, and while my practice between lessons is certainly lacking, I am making serious progress. One fine day, I will play that coffee house and my decent singing and average guitar will fill the air and with any luck will only turn heads in a good way!

Henri is an excellent teacher! I have been a teacher myself for more than 15 years and I recommend him without reservation. He works with my daughter who is five years old and she is always excited about her lessons. She is making excellent progress and is eager to do more. She feels well-supported by Henri who encourages her to take risks with her playing while making her feel that she is doing a great job. Music lessons with this teacher are well worth the money and an excellent investment. We are lucky to have found him!

I have been going to lessons with Carolyn for over a year now and I can say from experience she is one of the best! You can tell she is incredibly passionate about what she does. I have had previous teachers with music and so far Carolyn is my favorite I've had! It's a pleasure to work with her and I have learned and improved a lot in the little time I've seen her.

Cassandra C. Phoenix, AZ

About Cassandra

Welcome to Studio C! I recently graduated with honors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, earning a Master of Music in Voice Performance. I also hold a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University. An emerging opera singer myself, I sing with Arizona Opera in Phoenix and Tucson. I am available for private voice lessons serving the Phoenix metro area in historic Central Phoenix. Students learn to let go of inhibitions, release tensions, find a natural voice, and let that voice grow. Studying both classical and music theater repertoire and techniques, students develop effective breathing, a supported tone, and an agile voice suitable for any genre of singing. Motivated students who have a musical background are most successful in my studio. I'm pretty down to earth ...

As a choral singer, Cassie's instruction was just what I needed to expand into solo work. Lessons are always fun but balanced with stretching and challenging exercises.

Cassandra has a lovely and gentle way of encouraging the best out of her students. One of her strengths is her uplifting and positive reinforcement. Because she believes that singing is more an outpouring of one's soul, she will always do her best to make you feel comfortable as she engages you in singing and also as she engages you as a person.

I enjoy her as a teacher and also as a friend. I believe I will know her for the rest of my life and continue to take lessons from her as much as possible. I highly recommend her!

I enjoy playing and performing, but there is NO fulfillment like coaching children and adults alike, as they learn to create the music within them. I teach all ages. Currently, my youngest is 3 and my oldest is 83!! I have taught over 600 people of all ages to play music. I began

Jeffrey O. Phoenix, AZ

About Jeffrey

My Price: There are a lot of people on this site who teach lessons; I've looked through profiles...and their prices. Many of them do not have degrees in music and/or their lessons are expensive. I am a professional musician and educator with the lowest rates I can afford. My pricing is low to be competitive and does not in any way reflect the quality of the lesson. I believe good lessons should be affordable to everyone at a weekly basis. My Teaching Experience: I have taught general music K-8 in a charter school and basically had to build a music program with no funding and almost no supplies. I left this job in favor of teaching privately because the staff and administration were horribly disrespectful and unappreciative of what I did for their school. Teaching privately ...

Dr. Jeff has helped bring music back in my life. I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano and had been trying to teach myself because of my past experience (played trumpet from elementary school– 2 yrs of collage). Learning that way was not ideal though and I was really not progressing at all. I finally decided to start lessons and I can’t tell how grateful I am that I did. Dr. Jeff has helped me learn and practice correctly and I really feel that I am progressing well. I am having so much fun learning and playing.

I have been bringing my daughter to the piano lessons of Jeff for the last six months. I've seen my daughter able to follow his instructions and accomplish the lessons, but most important is the fact of seeing Jeff focused in passing the information to her each lesson. She can be talkative and distracted at her early age, but he has managed to get her attention well. Jeff has shown me his commitment and engagement to his teachings, his patience with my daughter and someone who is not rushing every lesson. He has been always flexible to my schedule, very professional and his prices are very good compared to other options.
