Kevin F.

Memphis, TN

About Kevin

I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap i
nto if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda but am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

I was very pleased with Kevin! He was very easy to work with regarding scheduling, communication, and teaching my son pre-algebra. My son graduated with a B average. I was very pleased with this result due to my son didn't spend an extra time learning due to his schedule.

I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Jason's exquisite talent with the saxophone recently in a private concert. I was extremely impressed with his talent and I think anyone wishing to learn to play the sax or just improve your own talents would benefit from Jason's dedication and expertise.

Leander S.

Memphis, TN

About Leander

A little about me: I am the French horn player with the touring wind quintet the City of Tomorrow. In addition to my work with the City of Tomorrow, I hold positions with the Oregon Ballet Theater Orchestra and the Portland Opera Orchestra. I also play regularly with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and the IRIS Orchestra in Germantown, Tennessee. As well as teaching private students, I am the horn instructor at both Rhodes College and the University of Mississippi at Oxford.

My Teaching Philosophies:
- Fundamentals are the key to success. Understanding and integrating basic principles of b
rass playing (including air-support, embouchure, and articulation) are the primary goals of most exercises.
- Lessons should be fun and full of experimentation. During lessons, there will be times when we improvise, try to make different noises on our instruments, and try out new ways of solving problems.
- Music can be understood instinctually and intellectually. Both are important to being a musician. During lessons we will improve the instinctual understanding of music by singing, listening, and exploring options of musical expression. Intellectual understanding will be deepened through study of music theory, composition, and historical performance-practice.

Good luck with your teacher search!
