Zack H. Hazelwood, MO

About Zack

I've been playing trumpet for just about 15 years. I studied trumpet at a college level at Lindenwood University, and have held top positions in the university's music ensembles, in spite of not being a music major. I will be graduating with my degree in Chemistry in 2013. Outside of college, I play professionally with several groups, and sub in other ensembles whenever I can. I have the most fun playing trumpet when I get to play higher and louder, so I specialize in jazz lead playing, and I rather enjoy the cover band gigs that keep me above the staff for hours at a time. I have had the chance to study with a number of excellent world-class musicians, and I try to take the lessons I have learned from them and apply them towards helping my students. I'm trying to avoid name-dropping,

My son picked to play the trumpet for middle school band, I signed him up to have lessons 1 x a week with Zack. After only 2 years, my son is a amazing trumpet player and has been picked to join Jazz bands and has had solo performances. I don't know how he does it, but my son has learned so much in such a short time!!!

Excellent Teacher, Great Advice, Great player!!!

Zach is really a grade A teacher, knows how to describe different techniques in great detail for the full understanding of the student. He really knows his stuff, and I highly recommend him as a teacher for a student of any level. He can really help me scream into the stratosphere!!! Amazing lead player himself with a full grasp of the techniques needed to be the great musical player he is! Thank you!

Ryan B. Saint Louis, MO

About Ryan

Hello, my name is Ryan B. I appreciate the responsibility, dedication and hard work that comes along with being a music teacher. To me nothing is more rewarding than the students improvement and their personal feelings of success. Since I have learned how to play a variety of instruments over the course of several years, I have learned how to gather and utilize skills and techniques that I have learned from many great musicians. That means I can take these diverse skills and pass them on to my students! And I am very good at finding just what the student needs to expand their musical horizons. Training: -I have been playing a variety of musical instruments (examples are guitar, piano, trombone, saxophone, trumpet, flute, and many more) for seven years -I am very familiar with ...

Enthusiasm that spreads! His excitement and passion for music truly inspired me.

Ryan is personable, eclectic and respectful. I met him while performing at a show with my old band. He had along his flute and saxophone. Excellent with any ability level and of all ages of students! He is well-versed in many different genres and on many different instruments, although he taught me saxophone. His enthusiasm and passion is contagious!
Angela H. Hazelwood, MO

About Angela

Hi! My name is Angela, and I teach private piano, voice, and theory lessons. I love teaching, and have taught many ages (3 to 93) and ability levels (novice to advanced). I am a dependable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher. I offer lessons for 30, 45, or 60-minute weekly sessions in my home studio. I do not offer bi-weekly lessons or lessons in the student's home. My home is a split-level, with my private living area above and my music studio below. There is a waiting area just outside the music studio, as well as a half-bath specifically designated for students and parents. The studio itself contains a piano and organ, my personal music library, and additional seating for parents. There is a full-length mirror for vocal students to watch their performance skills grow, and a ...

Angela is GREAT!! She gave me lots of helpful exercises to do outside of the lessons. And she was very accommodating when I wanted to sing in a language other than English. I WILL return to lessons with her.

Angela moves at a pretty good clip, which is fine with me. I appreciate that she is tailoring the lessons to suit my abilities, rather than a one-size-fits all approach. I feel like I am a part of making choices, when appropriate. At the same time, Angela is confident in respectfully voicing a different opinion, and explaining it. I'm also taking piano lessons with her and appreciate her finding occasions to combine voice and piano opportunities.

Tina is a lot of fun! I am classically trained in choral and opera music, so I chose to work with her to improve my musical theater singing. In just a few lessons I could already feel a difference in my sound and in my confidence! Tina brings a lot of energy to lessons and even more insight and knowledge. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun and effective way to improve your voice.

I have a strong music background through instrumental music and choral singing. Tina has taught me to be a soloist singer, and my auditions and performances have greatly improved. Tina is highly professional, no doubt, but her best quality in a teacher is her continued support to bring out my best vocal performance possible. I highly recommend Tina for singers at any level because she clearly communicates her feedback and her commitment to her students' success.

I am a singer songwriter (in training you could say) and had struggled with singing for years, as I knew nothing other than mimicking and singing along with other songs. Tina has been able to remove some unnecessary mysticism around singing, in my own mind, and focus on progressively improving my songs. Her ear is spot on and always can identify what I'm struggling with.

She will take the time to ensure you are hitting the right notes and does not settle for your second best. Great at helping you understand everyone goes through their own process before the songs can sound great. She has helped tremendously!

Thanks,
Will

4 Painless Steps to Help You Learn Music Theory

Here, Jamaica Plain, MA teacher Noaa R. shares four steps to get you started...   Many students tend to avoid studying music theory and harmony.

5 Singing Auditions Gone Wrong - And How to Bounce Back

5 Excellent Sight Reading Exercises for Singers
Unless you're a career-chorister, the concept of sight reading music is probably going to at best make you slightly nervous, and at worst paralyze you with fright. However, at some point, probably when you join a choir or perhaps go to an audition, you're going to have to face that hurdle. Sight reading comes easier to some singers than others, but it's not some mythical task akin to retrieving a golden fleece; sight-reading, even for the more able, is a learned skill, and there are several sig
5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano
Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha
