About Kay S.

Taught 41 years as a band director Principal Trumpet with Beloit/Janesville Symphony I like to teach in a style that is functional and interesting. Students will be doing a variety of activities at each lesson. The focus will be determined by their needs. As students become more proficient in music their enjoyment of musical activities will increase. The success of completing various levels of musical achievement will carry over to other lifetime skills. *** Lesson Details *** I will work with each student depending on their individual needs. We will strive to produce steady improvement in player proficiency. *** Travel Equipment *** Student should have a music stand and instrument *** Specialties *** I like to teach based on the individual. I have taught group and private lessons. The materials I use are varied, with an emphasis on scales, theory, and also some duet playing. I also like to incorporate some music history into each lesson. I feel that each student needs to work from known to the new areas. I often use supplementary materials (solos or small ensembles) to reinforce my teaching.

Kay is very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. She is very encouraging and never makes me feel dumb when I hit a sour note. (As a beginning beginner, that happens a lot!) I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time!
