Marty W. Chandler, AZ

Confidence, projection, microphone usage - all work together to ensure that my students' musical performances are top-notch. I conduct two recitals per year and am working to expand our performance opportunities in the community. Many of my students already sing in premier choir ensembles and/or bands. I 'press' my students with various different vocalizes and pieces to ensure that when the opportunity to perform comes - they're ready.

About Marty

Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom. "With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your sound. As well, piano students will learn techniques that will speed up their comprehension of sight reading and/or improvisation. Teaching gives me an opportunity to energize my students and share with them historically proven techniques - as well as new ways of practicing and performing." - Marty Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Marty moved to the Phoenix, AZ area eight years ago. Marty has over 20 years of performing and teaching experience. She studied for three years at the School of ...

We love Marty. My daughter has been with her 2 1/2 years. There is a special relationship with my daughter and Ms. Marty that I never hear from any other teacher. Respect! I'm speaking of the respect that Ms. Marty shows her students. When she speaks to my daughter she treats her with such respect and kindness. Francesca will always have the skills Marty has taught her and continues growing and blossoming under her tutelage.

Marty can guide you go down whatever musical path that interests you. She tells you what you need to do to achieve great quality, but never makes you feel bad if you don't make it.

Instruction is always individualized and positive. She always looks for what you do best and helps you develop your strengths. She works with you to overcome your weaknesses. Taking classes with her is a great pleasure.

I really like Marty, she is a great teacher! We have been with her for over two years and she teaches my two older children. I appreciate that she takes a slightly different approach to each child based on their learning style and personality. She is patient yet demanding with the kids, and flexible with my needs and requests as a parent. It is clear she is knowledgeable and loves piano and music generally.
Karen R. Mesa, AZ

I teach musical performance for the instruments that I teach which are piano, voice, and guitar. I teach stage presence techniques such as stance or physical positioning, emotional expressiveness, eye contact, concert and recital etiquette, introductions of pieces, bowing, etc.

About Karen

Karen has loved to sing and play instruments almost all of her life, and became passionate about music early in her childhood.

Karen’s recitals, showcasing 6 to 12 students each time, always thrill
me. Men, women, boys, & girls of all ages and various degrees of
achievement stand before their audience with confidence. They have
practiced, not only the pieces which they play, but showmanship, not
pushy or cocky, but polite and welcoming. They make eye contact and
smile; some invite the crowd to sing along on the choruses. Even the
1st year students exude confidence.

The crowd returns those smiles, along with cheers and clapping. One
can tell that Karen has kindly and persistently shown and encouraged
each student. If any show fear, she does not chide; she accompanies
them in the performance and nods approval as they continue. I watch
that fear subside. They are then met with handshakes and pats on the
back. Next time, they will be even more eager to share the pieces that
they worked on and not expect criticism.

Karen picks a theme and arranges guitar, piano, and voice selections,
intermingled into a program that leaves a person well entertained and
planning to come back next time. I am not related to any of the
participants and have no obligation to be at the recitals. I love the
music, the talent, and the progress that I see and hear. You, too,
will be glad you came.

I am 73 years old and have always wanted to play a guitar, Karen is a member of our church choir and had mentioned that she teaches guitar and piano. I asked if I could take lessons this past June and she agreed to teach me. I am so happy that Karen is teaching me to play a guitar, I did not think I would ever be able to do that but I am learning thanks to her great teaching skills, patience and fantastic knowledge of music. She is very encouraging and teaches on my level of understanding never above my head. I would recommend Karen to anyone that has a desire to learn to play a guitar she is perfect for me!
Phillip Z. Chandler, AZ

All my students have multiple opportunities to perform throughout the year. I generally put on a Christmas student recital and a student recital just before summer break. In addition to these 'concerts', I offer performance classes once every other month where students get together and do a variety of activities which may include playing for each other, jamming, performing as duos and trios, or taking a lesson in front of the group. We have fun and all learn a lot at the same time!

About Phillip

I teach music. The guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele just happen to be the particular instruments I choose. Music as a language, discipline, and art, is the goal. I've been teaching, performing, studying, composing, for some thirty years. I've studied and gigged in the classical, jazz, rock, blues, R & B, and country idioms. I've taught composition and improvisation to instruments other than guitar, (vocalists, fiddle, sax, piano, trumpet) I've taught all ages and levels. I currently pursue a doctorate of music in guitar at university. Students learn many things when studying with me. They learn physically how to play a particular instrument while learning music as its own language. Students learn how to learn, learn self-discipline, and access their musical expression, all ...

I've been taking online lessons with Phil for almost two years now and have been enjoying every minute of it. It is very seldom you come across someone who truly loves music and shines through in teaching style. His love for music is an inspiration for me. Phil is an experienced professional, reliable, enthusiastic and his lessons are always meaningful and productive. If you're wanting to learn how to play the guitar or uke, Phil is the guy. Never to late to learn how to play an instrument. He is the best. ;-)

Phillip has been absolutley wonderful with my 7 year old son. He was able to teach him to play a song within the first two lessons. Since then he has laid the groundwork to build on to transform my son into a bonafide guitarist. He has worked on technique, reading music, chords, scales and keeping rhythm. He is very patient and jokes around keeping the lessons light and fun. He is very responsive to emails and is flexible with lesson times. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

My daughter has been to Jennifer three times so far, and we will continue to use her for lessons. She is friendly, great with kids, recognizes strengths and weaknesses easily and addresses them. My daughter has learned so much in the few lessons she attended thus far. I recommend her to any one else in the Gilbert area looking for a step above the rest.

Dominick C. Apache Junction, AZ

About Dominick

I have eight years teaching experience. Of those seven, five of them have been in music stores wherein I taught students of all ages, musical interests and skill levels. My students have gone on to form rock bands of their own, compete in singer/songwriter contests and pick up other musical instruments all because of the musical interest/passion I have helped develop. I am very involved in the local music scene. I have written, produced, engineered and played on many recordings ranging in genre from folk to metal and classical to jazz. My band, Oceanborn, will be releasing our debut album in two weeks (10/1/2013) wherein I wrote, produced, engineered and tracked guitar. I have a modest, but very high quality studio setup and a lot of versatile gear to help me get the job done. ...

This is what I do. My group won a Grammy award in South Africa in the 90's. Let me utilize my experience and help you reach those goals only experience can lead to.

About Mark

I am not only a Grammy winning musician with over 15 years of touring and recording experience, but also a classically trained performer and instructor. I teach various instruments covering all styles and levels and believe in making your learning experience fun and interesting. Music and the adventure in learning music has been my life's greatest experience. As I travel on that journey, the greatest thing is being an instructor and having the opportunity of taking my students along and sharing the gift of music and feeling the joy of discovery as we play, perform, compose and whatever other elements of music that come before us as we advance towards our goals. I invite you to hop on board, buckle up and get ready for one of the greatest rides life has to offer. *** Lesson ...

We are entering our third month of piano lessons with Mark and in that time my daughter Maya, 8 years old has made more progress than she did in one year with her previous teacher. As a mom of 4, it was important for me to be able to stay home for lessons and of course have it be affordable. But I also wanted someone I could trust to nurture my daughter's love of music. Mark does a really good job with that. He is very knowledgeable and he's a great teacher. Maya really enjoys the fun he makes out of learning. I'm so happy to see her thriving with her love of music and Mark has become a very important part of that.

Mark is awesome. He's really helped me out a lot with vocals and getting better with guitar. When I don't understand something completely he puts it in a way that I can understand and tells me not what I want to hear, but what I need to hear. No matter what you are trying to improve on, Mark will make it happen and teach you some tricks you wouldn't be able to find on YouTube or anywhere else.

He never gets upset when it takes you some time to learn things or get the hang out it. When i Come back for more lessons, you can bet that i will fight for Mark to be my teacher
