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 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!

Great teacher!

Henri is great!! He is a super experienced and knowledgable drummer (musician) and teacher. He is extremely patient, has taught me my basics, technique, and is very open to teaching what you want to learn, willing to teach you what you are really interested in musically. At the end of every lesson, he reviews what we learned, writes it and lets me video it so I can practice at home. He has been really flexible, patient, laid back and always down to work on whatever you want but great at coming up with lessons that challenge and excite you as well. I could'nt be more pleased with Henri as a teacher. I always look forward to my lessons.

Great experience!

My 7 yr old has been taking drum lessons with Henri for aobut 2 months. He is always excited to go, and never wants to leave at the end. He is learning rhythms and other drum basics. Henri is great at keeping him on track, but allowing for enough fun/free play as well. It is great that Henri has two drum kits so they can both play the whole lesson.

Fantastic Teacher!!

Candace is amazing! I came to her wanting to learn the fundamentals of singing and she has gone far beyond my expectations. She is patient, and truly believes in me even when I feel as if I cannot do it. She is the best teacher I have ever come across and I couldn't ask for anything better!

She is amazing!

I came into this searching for somebody whom I thought could get me to the skill level that I so desperately desire. So far Candice has done a phenomenal job of laying the foundation of my technique in a way that I am having fun and seeing results. After 4 weeks of lessons I could not imagine working with anyone else!

My Lessons with Ms. C Changed Everything

All I knew when I first started was that I wanted to be famous. She helped me to identify my goals and she literally put me on a path to reach them. My confidence was definitely boosted because we attacked every insecurity head on and now there aren't any. I also learned how to process and use my nervous energy working with her. She's amazing! I've had lessons with some teachers who were a bit stiffer but we really went in deep and it was exactly what I needed.

Ms. Fleming is an excellent teacher, patient, encouraging, and working from a
broad range of experience. As a teacher myself (English), I really appreciate those qualities. Her experience across multiple instruments and music genres is especially appealing to me, as I play several instruments and am interested in many types of music. She gives me hope that I can develop some facility on
upright bass, a dream I have had since I was a boy. (Note: Her insights into how to practice are really helpful.)

About Mollie

I have been a musician all my life -- started learning the piano at age 3. I am classically trained, was going to be a concert pianist, but then when I became 18, I realized that I wanted to explore other genres of music. I have played big band jazz, was in a professional original rock band and played on the stage with many famous rock musicians, have played with many different bands in almost every style of music (including hip hop), and am an accomplished studio musician as well. I love music, period. I also am a percussionist and vocal coach. I also can teach church musicians to play "outside the hymnal." (I have played in almost every kind of church, including gospel) *** Lesson Details *** I am very laid back, I use a variety of curriculums and methods, depending on what is ...

Extremely talented and patient

Mollie has a gift. I can't get enough of listening to her play the piano. She is an accomplished pianist and performer. Mollie has taught children of all ages and is extremely patient and effective with them. I believe if you are wishing to grow musically, than Mollie can help you whether you are a child wishing to play the piano or an adult wishing to write music. I highly recommend Mollie as a music teacher.

Making Music Fun For Everyone!

Mollie is a great instructor with a great knowledge base. She genuinely wants everyone to enjoy music as much as she does. She cares enough to mold the lessons around her students, i.e. if one wants to learn a particular song first, then that is what happens. She makes it fun too. She is kind, patient, and very humble. She knows music, to the core and back again. It has been a real honor to have been able to study with Mollie. If you need someone who can play the entire music genre, classic piano to the latest hits on the radio, Jazz Standards to Improvisational Masterpieces, Mollie is tops.

Mollie is the one piano teacher who was able to get through to me and make it so it was easy and fun to use my left hand. I highly recommend her!

Mollie is the one piano teacher who was able to get through to me and make it so it was easy and fun to use my left hand. She is patient, and very knowledgeable. Even though I came to her as an adult, I've observed her interacting with children of different ages over the years and she always treats people with respect and dignity. Furthermore, I have known of several of her students going on to enjoy successful music careers. I highly recommend her!
Kenny T. Phoenix, AZ

I have been writing, producing, and publishing my music for 40 years. ( WOW..that makes me sound old!!) I teach lyrics, song construction, and arranging.

About Kenny

I have been teaching professionally since 1970. I am also a professional (full time) jazz and gospel pianist. I perform primarily in the Phoenix area..but have performances throughout the year..in all 50 states. I have written and produced a musical, "Kleo the Kat", which includes 10 original songs. I have recorded 6 albums..of piano and vocal music. My lessons are diligent, yet friendly. I combine fun and learning. ALL of my students, consistently comment on my patience..that is because teaching is my PASSION. 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 ...

Loving Piano Lessons

My grandson has just started taking lessons w/Kenny. Already he has learned so much & I hear him humming his practice pieces around the house & he tells me he likes playing piano. Kenny is very patient & good w/children. Would recommend Kenny highly.
Jeffrey O. Phoenix, AZ

Songwriting is much like music composition, but a little bit more popular style oriented. I have a rhyming dictionary and can help you write lyrics in a form that makes sense as well as critique something you may have written. I can also help you develop harmony, rhythm, and melody that will make your song attractive. There are a lot of bad songs out there, and I would help you write a quality song, one that is catchy, has good lyrics, and is worth listening to.

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.

My 8 year old granddaughter had been taking lessons for approximately 3 years from a teacher she/we loved ♡ so changing instructors was not something we wanted to do. Jeff has been awesome! Patient does not truly describe his personality :) Our family is extremely pleased with her new level of excitement and commitment for the piano...what a blessing finding Jeff has been. Thank YOU Jeff!
