Juliet J. Saint Louis, MO

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 application 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 ...

I highly recommend Juliet as a singing instructor. My daughter looks forward each week to her lesson. Juliet is knowledgeable and kind. It is exciting each week to watch my daughter progress under Juliet's direction. She offers a very comfortable atmosphere in which to learn and progress and I think any student would find her to be wonderful.

Excellent teacher

To make the long story short, I took various music lessons as a kid, and.. basically, all my teachers gave up on me after a little while... maybe I was so hopeless in music.

I started taking piano lessons with Juliet last summer since I had always been dreaming about piano playing. I have to admit I am a little anxious to many of the lessons, because I have a very busy full time job so sometimes I barely find any time to practice. But Juliet has been so patient, helpful and encouraging. I can tell there had been a dramatic progress during the past year. Although I am still a very beginner, I wouldn't be able to learn many of the skills without Juliet's help.

I am very grateful to have Juliet as my piano teacher.
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.

Ali

Lisa is very outgoing and entertaining. She is encouraging Ali to be braver/less timid when singing and acting...this is exactly what Ali needs. I appreciate Lisa's positive attitude. I would like to split each session into 30 minutes acting and 30 minutes singing. I think both disciplines could reinforce the other. If that seems to short maybe we can move to 1.5 hours.

Lisa is a wonderful teacher! She doesn`t waste time and is really flexible and listens to what I actually want to learn, but also makes sure I know what I need to. She is not intimidating at all, and makes you feel very comfortable and makes sure your having fun. I would reccommend her to anyone.

I wont bore you with a long review... but Ryan is the best bang for the buck on all of TakeLessons. He makes the lessons fun... not only do you learn about singing, you will learn about yourself. There is not a doubt that we will have a long working relationship.

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give him! Thanks Ryan!

Olivia is a wonderful musician, but more importantly - she's a truly gifted teacher. She respects children, and she has the intuition to clue in to each one's interests and abilities. We engaged her for in-one lessons for a school year, and I saw her interact and heard the reports from 3 children: my 6th grade son and his friend and 4th grade sister. She taught my son on his small keyboard - not a piano - and the only reason we stopped was that she moved away. She made the theory interesting enough to hold his attention, taught him the basics of composing your own music, and gave him fun exercises to hold his attention. She organized and held a Christmas recital and reception for all her students. At the end of the school year his school class performed a musical, and she even took one of the numbers, adapted it to his level, and turned it into a duet he performed with his friend, another one of Olivia's students. He started the school year not knowing about middle C and ended the year with an understanding of basic musical theory, knowing how to play dozen beginner to intermediate songs, several chords, and 2 performances under his belt. I highly recommend her.

Olivia taught my son Piano for about 4 years when she was in Rochester. She is a lovely and patient young woman who is great with kids. I've seen my son grow from a beginner to a pretty decent pianist under her guidance. She was very flexible with our time and worked hard to fit our schedule. She would still be his teacher is she hadn't left, so our loss is your gain.
