Overview

Le’Andra McPhatter was born into a clan of musicians, singers, as well as music lovers. Since the age of 3, she has been enthusiastic about music, especially the piano. Growing up as a self-taught pianist, she gained her start in the church and studied theory and musical notation independently. Music has influenced her life so eloquently that she is en-route to her BA in Jazz Studies with a Certification in Teaching (Dec 2017). Along with piano, LeAndra also has experience training vocals and playing clarinet in both middle and high schools. She is a multi-genre performer who takes great joy in instructing people of all ages about the fun, beautiful journey music has to offer. She believes that the most beautiful thing about music is how it allows people to share a piece of their world with complete strangers – creating an intimate, undeniable connection that people will never forget.

Le'Andra was wonderful for our first visit. She arrived on time and was very professional. She kept the lesson fun and engaging for my 8yo daughter which helped her stay focused for the hour. They were giggling and having fun while also learning! My daughter really enjoyed their time together and is looking forward to her next lesson.

Le'Andra is an amazing artist, teacher, and composer. The lessons I received have not only made me proficient but made me want to come back to her specifically because she is genuine in her approach to making sure you are well prepared. Her attention to detail and love for teaching is felt even in the introductory session. If you are a person who really wants to learn piano or even lessons with vocals-Le'Andra is the teacher to have! Your investment will reap a great reward at the end of your lessons.
