Are you a beginner piano player interested in learning how to play your favorite songs? Do you like how the piano sounds and want to learn what each note is or how to take control of the instrument? Are you a singer looking to grow with your vocal exercises and learn how to play scales? I learned how to play piano 4 years ago when I started teaching music lesson. When I first started I was teaching voice, so I had to learn scales and chords to be able to warm up and accompany the students I was working with. Pretty soon I was playing piano with my students for their recitals, and quickly I learned how to utilize the piano either for performance or practice! Whether you are planning on leading with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know for your beginner piano studies! If you have any questions, please message me!
About Mikala P.

Want to learn how to play or sing your favorite song? Are you interested in learning how to write your own songs? Since the start of my teaching career 4 years ago, my lessons have expanded to include guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, drums, singing, and even songwriting! I'm eager to help you find exactly what you want to learn while finding your own voice along the way. Besides teaching I have 7 years of experience as a professional musician, so learning instrument's or composing my own songs to be able to play for others is a passion of mine! I've played numerous festivals with my band and as a solo act, traveling to cities in the Midwest and "touring" is one of my favorite ways to connect with music lovers. Everything from beginner to performer, I will show you what I know about how to play an instrument, sing, crafting your own songwriting skills, recording, as well as performing on stage and the best way to talk to an audience and keep people engaged. My lessons are modeled to be more hands-on, letting the student decide their curriculum and direction of learning. I love more than anything helping people meet their musical goals, so if you're looking to learn an instrument, sing, or write, send me a message and let's work together!

I had a great time taking voice lessons with Mikala! She is an amazing teacher! She helped me learn how to properly use my voice to sing well, and she taught me a variety of styles as well! She really cares about her students, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Music Teacher
Jan 2016 - Feb 2019
KC Music
In 2016 I took my first teaching opportunity at KC Music in Parkville, MO teaching a band of 5 through a program called “ROCK-U” how to play classic rock with a performance every 4 quarters. I also worked with a few beginner vocal students through performances with ROCK-U. Over the years I helped establish and host recitals for every student that took lessons at the store. By the end of my time with KC Music, I was the most highly-requested teacher on staff and had a full schedule with 30+ students. In February of 2019, I left KC Music and started implementing my own strategies for private lessons.
