About Juliet
I have been a teacher in private practice for 20 years. I have a wide range of experience with singers of all styles and age groups with a variety of goals and skills. I sang with a professional jazz octet for a number of years while maintaining my practice, have taught various master classes, musically directed various musicals, have sung background vocals and played piano on various recordings. I studied vocal and piano performance at Murray State University and studied privately through my adult singing and teaching career.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a big believer of direct appl
ication of core technique to repertoire/style. Generally, lessons are fun, comfortable and laughter is encouraged. I like singers to be working on a wide variety of music from the beginning. It's a great way to understand and explore your voice and how great technique is fundamental to successful development. I find this approach beneficial if you're a beginning student or if you sing professionally. Not to mention, singing songs is fun!!!! I encourage all students to give input on repertoire. Songs are chosen with goals in mind, including working specific parts of the range, preparing for an audition or performance, stamina, strength, and overall vocal development. In 3-6 months you will have a very good understanding of how your voice works and how to apply good technique to a variety of styles of music. My goals for piano students of all ages include a broad understanding of music theory and the ability to sit down and play music! I believe good sight reading skills are paramount for piano enjoyment and functional playing skills. We will sight read at each lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with piano, mic, recoding equipment, and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a full size keyboard for travel.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I'm comfortable with all styles of singing and have coached extensively in most styles, from classical to hip hop to rock. I work with singers with various goals. Some are professional singers, some study for a future career, and some study for personal enrichment. I am very good at teaching solid healthy technique/voice use, with direct application to repertoire, maintaining the singer's authenticity, style, and vocal health.

While teaching classical piano, I always try to incorporate the material that students like the most: Holiday songs, Broadway melodies and favorite cartoon songs. All of this definitely adds to the enjoyment of learning how to play. Besides having two recitals a year, I encourage students to play in front of their peers at school, to always play for their families and to participate in various competitions and festivals around the St.Louis area.

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 discover the 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. My students range from people who simply want to learn how to play proficiently as a hobby to students who are considering making music their future career.
I strongly believe that a chance to go on a
big stage and play on a great Steinway piano in front of 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 your goals!

My first lesson went very well. My teacher Daniela was very nice and succinct in her teaching which makes up for the somewhat disconnect online teaching format. The connection via takelesson was very noisy so we switched to using Skype midway and the rest was much better.

Want to learn to play all your favorite songs, but think it will take years of piano lessons? NOT TRUE! I can teach you a system that will allow you to hear a song, sit down and play it within minutes! Learn about keys, chords, chord progressions and a whole lot more! I specialize in teaching how to play by ear, but I customize my lessons to focus on the things YOU WANT TO LEARN. Classical. Pop. Jazz. I want you to enjoy your lessons while also learning the fundamentals.

About Chris
Hi! My name is Chris, but a lot of people call me Luppy (pronounced "loopy"). I am a professional musician in the St. Louis area specializing in jazz as well as performing with my band Sky West Trio (www.skywesttrio.com). I am classically trained but also play by ear. I have years of experience in the music business. I toured the country for 8 years with a band (LP Outsiders) that led to a publishing deal with Windswept Pacific, landing a song on the Three To Tango movie soundtrack, appearing on the Disney Channel Show "2 Hour Tour" with 98 Degrees, and opening for many national acts. We e
ven toured with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy for a year. I also played trumpet on a b-side on Natalie Imbruglia's multi-platinum selling single to "Torn," and did some songwriting with Robbie Nevil (of "Ce La Vie" fame).I also have performed all over the world including many caribbean islands like Aruba, Barbados, Curacao, St. Maarten and St. Kitts.

I offer lessons to people of ALL AGES! I customize my lessons to focus on the things YOU WANT TO LEARN. My favorite thing to teach is how to play by ear! I can teach you the system that all professional musicians use to be able to play songs instantly after hearing it once. It really is possible with a little practice.

I do also teach the classical repertoire if that is what you are more interested in. For most students, I teach a combination of playing by ear and learning music theory, as well as some classical repertoire.

Chris is awesome! He tailored my lessons to help me cover the skills that I most needed/wanted to work on while continuing to cover the basic materials he takes all his students through. He's professional, easy-going, flexible, and is a super talented player. Highly recommended for students of any playing level, or any age!

I am an experienced teacher available for students of all ages and abilities! My youngest student was four years old, and my oldest student was approaching seventy, so it is never too early or late to start learning music with me. I teach a little bit of everything in lessons, including technique, theory, history, ear training, improvisation, and composition! Music lessons with me are always professional, but fun. Let's make music together!

About Sarah
I love to teach because I love music, and I love sharing it with the world!

I am an experienced teacher with a bachelor of music degree in piano performance. I have worked extensively as a professional musician, as a soloist, accompanist, and musical director.

If you study with me, you can learn everything from piano technique and music theory, to improvisation and composition. Lessons are always catered to the individual needs and goals of every student, and my aim is always to produce well-rounded musicians and foster a love of music that will continue for the rest of your life.

Sarah was an excellent teacher for my daughter. After years of piano, my daughter was losing interest and avoided practicing for lessons because of the stress of high school academics and social interests. She was on the verge of quitting after investing a lot of years, but Sarah brought the passion for piano back into my daughter's life. She made lessons stress-free and enjoyable. She offered feedback without criticism, challenged when appropriate, and showed that persevering with piano could be fun. She has a great command of a wide variety of music, and was willing to work outside the box of just classical music, while also offering classical choices that could capture my daughter's interest. Sarah is just a lovely individual -- smart, funny, flexible, approachable, and incredibly gifted as a pianist and teacher. We were lucky to have her.

Sarah taught our daughter piano lessons for 3 years. Her approach in the way that she teaches not only the lesson portion but also the theory helped advance our daughter significantly. Sarah has great patience and comes across in a way that a student feels comfortable to learn. We would still be with her if we did not have to relocate across country. Highly recommend Sarah
