Kathleen G. Blue Springs, MO

About Kathleen

For the last 40 plus years, I have taught children as young as 3 and adults as old as ahh they won't tell me! 'I have been participating in band and musical programs for over 30 years in the Kansas City Area. I am activity in a brass octet called the "Joyful Sound Brass Ensemble". We play at nursing home, churches, and other function in and around our area. I began my musical training when I was 5. I started on a small 12 bass accordion and loved it. I moved up to the full size accordions when I was 6 years old and it was as big as I was! I wanted to learn more, so my mom took pity on me and pulled out her alto saxophone for me when I was 8. My love of music grew more with each instrument I learned. With the help ...

Kathy is a wonderful teacher

My son is 9 and has been taking lessons with Kathy for about 5 months. We started him on lessons right after the instrument "try it" day the summer prior to him starting band. He went into the try it day wanting to play drums and ended up changing his mind to play flute! He didn't know anything about the flute or how to read music when he started and she had him going in not time. My wife and I are both band nerds and highly recommend Kathy for any instrument instruction needs. She has always been wonderful at meeting our son's needs and adjusting her lessons as needed to meet the needs of my son.
Marci S. Lenexa, KS

About Marci

Welcome to my studio! Here is a recent blurb about me: Marci began her classical piano studies at 8 years old, in the private studio of concert pianist Elaine de San Miguel. In addition to recitals, concerts, camps and master classes, Marci branched out into performing in a variety of venues, as an accompanist for vocalists, instrumentalists, choirs and musicals. When she wasn't playing the piano for people, she was taking voice lessons, singing in both traditional & show choirs, and performing in musical theater. Her favorite TV show is currently "Phineas & Ferb"! (Great music on that show, if you hadn't noticed!) Marci holds a teaching license in the state of Kansas, and is classified as "highly qualified" according to the No Child Left Behind Law. She is currently working on ...

Marci is fabulous with senior citizens!!!

I am 60 years old, retired, and have always wanted to take piano lessons. Our perfect grandson, Max, has been taking lessons with Marci for a couple of years, and his brother, our other perfect grandson, Gibson, will be starting soon. Their mom recommended Marci with no hesitation. I do the same!!

I am a different student for Marci than she is used to. She has the gift of a true teacher to be able to teach any age. (As a retired teacher of 35 years, I can attest to this professionally as well as personally!) She has the gift of dealing with any age and any ability.

I would recommend Marci with my whole heart and no hesitation whatsoever!!

I never thought anyone and I mean anyone could get me past the fear of singing. I have over three decades of acting, including a prestigous acting school, but never developed confidence in singing. Thomas taught me. He helped me develop my new voice. Wow! Thank you sir!

Tom is a most excellent vocal instructor

Tom is a wonderful teacher. He is always cheerful and encouraging and positive. He searches for the best selections to match my voice. He helps me work toward the best I can be and doesn't let me "settle" for anything less. Best of all, he is so fun to be with.

Piano Lessons

I started taking piano lessons from Dr Garrison in August 0f 2012. He has taught me about music notes and all their meanings. I started as a beginner with no musical knowledge or background. I am 56 and with Dr Garrison teaching method, knowledge and education he's given me the understanding I need to continue to learn from his instructions. Any questionsed that I have he has an answer for and each problem I have he solves each and everytime. I started my first lesson with an old keyboard I brought at a yard sale, but never used it. Since I have been under the instructions of Dr Garrison I have brought a Baldwin piano without any hesitation. I truly know with his teaching method/instructions that I will continue to learn something new at each lesson.

Drum
Great Drum Instructor

Brad is currently working with me as a drum instructor. I had been working with another instructor for about 2 yrs when I realized it was time for change. Brad was a perfect fit when we met. Brad works with me once a week for anywhere from 1/2 to 1 hr depending on my needs. He has been so encouraging and supportive of everything I want to learn as well as what he feels I need to learn. My skills are improving everyday with the techniques he uses which fit me very well. I am very blessed to have him as my new drum instructor. He is very good at adapting to where you are and moving forward from there. I would recommend Brad to anyone who is ready to learn the drums no matter at what level you are currently playing.

Fantastic!

Brad worked with me as a drum teacher from the ages from 11-16. Brad encouraged me day by day at each lesson, the encouragement resulted in the constant addition of new skills and great competence, Brad encouraged me to play in many different styles and situations and provided opportunities that allowed me to stretch myself out of my comfort zone in many situations. In outside situations I was not required to "try out" due to my well-known skills. I would recommend Brad's teaching expertise to anyone interested in learning drums or continuing to expand their skills.

About Heather

Teaching music is a privilege and a joy. I've had the great pleasure of teaching students of all ages and ability levels. Currently I am completing my doctorate in vocal pedagogy from the University of Kansas, and should be defending in early fall. My training has given me unique and comprehensive training in anatomy and physiology of the voice, which gives me a thorough understanding of vocal development. I am connected to area medical centers and voice clinics and am a Singing Voice Specialist working with clients who have been diagnosed with a vocal injury, such as polyps or nodules. I have been teaching voice and piano for fifteen years, including teaching at universities as a faculty member.

I have worked with 6 excellent voice teachers over 18 years and Heather is among the best. I asked her to work with me on operatic arias and she does so gladly even though I do not have an opera career. I do sing solo at my church monthly and have done a concert in Palo Alto, CA, sang the solo "O thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion" in a performance of the Messiah in Belton, MO, and have sung at benefits and musicals. She is knowledgeable, communicates well, her instructions are clear and helpful, and she is a joy to work with. I learn something new and helpful at each lesson. I look forward to continuing working with her for however long we can be together. Thank you for having such an excellent teacher on your website.
