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 ...

It's not easy to find a harmonica teacher. Ryan has been very reliable. He is flexible with his teaching style and my son really looks forward to his lessons. We bought 5 classes. We finished the last one yesterday. We are taking a break for the end of the school year but will keep Ryan in mind for future lessons.

Angela H.

Hazelwood, MO

I started playing piano at age seven when my mother enrolled me in lessons. I have been playing ever since, and I absolutely love it. I began teaching private piano lessons in 2003, and have taught many thousands of lessons since that time. I have experience accompanying choirs, instrumentalists, and vocalists, as well as playing as a soloist in various piano competitions and recitals. I recently began taking lessons in jazz piano, a genre I never learned much about. I believe it is never too late to learn something new, and I am excited to start this new chapter of my musical life and to use this new knowledge to enhance my own teaching.

In my piano lessons I use the Faber's fabulous Piano Adventures series. In my opinion, they are the best books on the market, emphasizing reading by intervals as opposed to memorizing note names. This method minimizes student frustration while also decreasing the amount of time it takes a student to read a new song. Piano Adventures also focuses ...

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.

Betty Jane R.

I teach a complete curriculum of piano performance, all styles: music theory, ensemble and improvisation. Piano accompaniment, for example, with orchestras or bands and playing from a 'lead sheet are taught.

Students have access to two pianos, a digital and a Petrof acoustic grand.

Being also a Church Musician, Improvisation, vocal and instrumental accompaniment are fortes.

My student population includes special needs pianists as well as highly gifted and every level in between and is very diversified.

Performance opportunities, membership in performing clubs including annual recitals, various auditions and competitions.

National Federation of Music Clubs Festivals provide several venues for special needs, junior and adult pianist performances and competitions.

About Betty Jane

Began to study piano at age five in Chicago, IL. and began teaching at age fifteen under Dr. Ronald Combs in Round Lake, IL till age seventeen. Opened my studio here in St. Louis, MO in 1987, and teach beginners through advanced. Classical Improvisation is one of my specialties. Successful Improv fundamentals are: Intervallic reading, knowledge of chords and freedom in playing fluidly in various styles. Music Theory is much easier than most people realize and is a must to learn to play well quickly , of course with practice!

Betty Jane does an outstanding job of teaching theory, dynamics, technique, and musicality. She can firmly teach younger children with attention issues as well as encourage the creative older students to compose and perform amazing pieces. Our kids really enjoy preparing for the periodic recitals. Betty Jane also encourages evaluation and certification through the St. Louis chapter of the National Federation of Music Clubs. I've very pleased the kids receive such a well-rounded music education. It's a joy to have wonderful music performed in our home every day!

About Daniela

Hi ! My name is Daniela and I can't wait to meet you! I have been teaching piano and theory since 1994 and have loved helping my students to discover beautiful world of music. Seeing my students grow into well rounded and educated people that love art, are able to recognize different styles of music, express their feelings and emotions on this wonderful instrument makes me really happy. I strongly believe that a chance to go on a big stage and play on a great Steinway piano in front of the people, makes a big difference in children's lives: teaches them self control, gives them great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Taking part in festivals and piano competitions helps with building high self esteem even more. I look forward to helping you and your children to reach ...

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Daniela for three years and we couldn’t ask for a better teacher! Daniela has high expectations of her students and helps them reach their potential.

I took piano lessons with Daniela for 4 years. It was a very valuable experience. Daniela is not only very passionate about music, but is also an extraordinary instructor. She assigned me many classical pieces that really pushed me to advance in my musical techniques and skills. Additionally, Daniela organizes two recitals every year for family and friends. If you are looking for a well-rounded instructor who truly cares about her profession and her student, then Daniela is the instructor for you!
