*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back person however I'll make sure you get things done! It doesn't matter what you'd like to do with your music I can help you get there and reach your goals! I use two different curricula for piano: Alfred Piano Book Series and Faber Piano Book Series. Also to help motivate I let kids bring in a song or two they would like to play maybe from a movie or a pop song (it also depends on their level). For voice I usually let you bring in books you already have or if you don't have any I'll choose some based on what you'd like to learn in voice whether it be classical, broadway, jazz etc.
*** Studio Equipment ***
In home piano.
*** Specialties ***
I can start piano or voice at a very young age. Students will learn music theory with piano, vocal technique and performance with voice, and how to really be convincing while acting.
Never 2 Late is an acoustic pop cover band that plays songs by James Taylor, The Beatles, Cat Stevens, Christina Peri, Lady Antebellum, Alison Krauss, Anna Kendrick, Billy Joel and MUCH more!
Lisa was the Music Director for the preschool at Kirk of the Hills. She taught the children songs, had the children play instruments as well as planned and organized seasonal music programs and concerts.
Lisa made my daughter’s feel comfortable right away
Lisa couldn't be better! She is making my son speak so much better and making him have much more confidence in social situations! We all love the way she instructs all the while making it fun for young kids.
She is very specific! She doesn't just teach the song but also dynamic. Easy to work with and helps with rescheduling. Kind and courteous!
Lisa is very outgoing and entertaining. She is encouraging Ali to be braver/less timid when singing and acting...this is exactly what Ali needs. I appreciate Lisa's positive attitude. I would like to split each session into 30 minutes acting and 30 minutes singing. I think both disciplines could reinforce the other. If that seems to short maybe we can move to 1.5 hours.
I think lisa is awesome. she's very outgoing and friendly it makes the lessons really fun and easy to learn and understand.
For my first singing instructor, she`s great!
Lisa is a wonderful teacher! She doesn`t waste time and is really flexible and listens to what I actually want to learn, but also makes sure I know what I need to. She is not intimidating at all, and makes you feel very comfortable and makes sure your having fun. I would reccommend her to anyone.
