Krystle is a multi-instrumentalist who's been playing for almost 20 years. She made a living as a professional musician in her early 20s and has since found her calling in music education.
After volunteering for Girls Rock Charlotte (a nonprofit that amplifies confidence in all girls through the power of music) in 2014, Krystle discovered she enjoyed teaching and was good at it. Passionate about music education and clear in her communication, parents started asking her to teach their children in private instruction. She is now the Music Director for Girls Rock Charlotte and has since founded Lady Rockstars. It's a six week group class where women learn to play guitar and bass, form a band, and then have a concert at the end. At this point she's taught over 20 group classes and many more to come. Largely due to the nature of group classes, She's taught well over 100 people and loves teaching and connecting people through music. Due to the success of her Lady Rockstars program, she has been able to open her own brick and mortar location in Indian Trail and is ready to take on more students.
I run the music education and equipment logistics for a nonprofit organization that uses music to amplify confidence in girls and women.
I've played guitar, bass, flute, and sang with different bands throughout the years that has given me a lot of experience with my instruments and performance.
Krystle is a great teacher. She is personable and adjusts her lesson to fit your interests and skill level. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for guitar lessons!
Krystle provides clear, well-planned, easy to follow instruction on the bass guitar. She excels at working with students on songs and genres they enjoy and provides arrangements that allow early success and encouragement for the learner. She is adept at assessing a student’s strengths and deficiencies and can zero in on exercises and songs that provide both skill development and the satisfaction of mastering a challenge. Her extensive teaching experience enables her to customize her instruction for any age or skill level. As an adult learner, I appreciate that Krystle’s feedback is direct, on target and encouraging. She sincerely wants her students to do well and to feel confident and accomplished. While teaching, she holds back on flashing her own considerable prowess as a bassist to avoid discouraging comparisons for beginners. More advanced students, however, find her performances and jams aspirational examples of skills attained through practice, performance and dedicated musicianship. Krystle’s personal style is warm and informal, but her lessons are thoughtful and efficient so that the student makes rapid incremental progress on learning the bass guitar.+ Read More
