Kristen R. Salt Lake City, UT

About Kristen

Hi! My name is Kristen and I am a 25 year old singer who loves music. I started my music career at the early age of 8 and haven't stopped singing since. Originally from Monterey, CA I grew up singing with my family. It has always been one of my favorite past times to sing with my dad. My family is one of the most important things to me, followed closely by music! Having been both an instrumentalist and vocalist, I feel it is important to not only know how to sing, but to be able to read music and understand what you are singing. After graduating with a music degree from BYU-I, I feel I have the tools to teach these and more. Through my years as a musician, I have come to appreciate many different kinds of music ranging anywhere from Broadway to opera to Jazz, etc. I feel this gives

Excellent voice lesson teacher

Kristen was an excellent voice teacher for two of my daughters. She helped boost their confidence and willingness to share their singing talents by increasing their knowledge and abilities. She instructed them on how to harmonize and encouraged them to stretch themselves with different music. Kristen provided a fun and easy atmosphere for voice lessons. I would highly recommend her!

Eric is my son's drum instructor. He just barely turned 7, and struggles with focus and attention. To help him with this, I thought learning to read music and play an instrument would be quite beneficial. We first tried violin: He cried every time driving to lessons, so that ended fast. Then I thought piano, in our home. That idea didn't work either. Now we are with Eric, and my little guy is progressing. He likes Eric, which is (more than) half the battle.
Eric really does customize his lessons based on progress. He's great with my son, and makes it fun for him. He encourages him to practice at home every day, and pays close attention to the progress he makes each week. Eric also pays close attention to form, such as foot placement on the pedals, and obviously where his little hands should be, and remain, while playing.
Alex now is able to read (beginning) sheet music, and is working on his coordination, too. As his mom, I really believe this has turned out very well! We've been in lessons now for almost 2 months, which is much longer than violin and piano lasted. I can already tell my son will stay with it.
It's exciting for me to see the progress he's making. Each week, he seems to be more focused and stays on task. Of course he still has a ways to go for his age. But again, Eric is really patient, kind, supportive and wonderful with Alex.
Richard W. Salt Lake City, UT

About Richard

I began playing music at the age of six. I started with the piano and saxophone but found my true passion, by age eight, in the guitar. I took private lessons from a great teacher for the first seven consecutive years of my study and further developed my knowledge and skills through self-directed study. I received my Undergraduate degree in Music Theory from the University of Utah. The pursuit of this degree allowed me to study many different musical aspects, including: composition, music history, ear training, sight reading and music technology, along with classical and jazz guitar studies. Over the years, through my education and practice, I have learned a great deal, not just about the guitar, but also ways to teach music and engage students in their pursuit of musical knowledge. I ...

Rich is an excellent guitar & music teacher

Starting to study music and learn the guitar in my late 40's was pretty tough. After trying a community education class, and a different private instructor, I found Rich here on Take Lessons. After the first lesson I knew that I was going to learn a lot from him, and that I would enjoy the journey.

Rich is very knowledgeable about music, and he takes the time to teach it in a connected and practical way. As he says in his bio, he is laid back, but that does not mean that he is not serious about music and about teaching. For me his teaching approach is perfect, as he blends a deep understanding of all aspects of music with learning, and enjoying, the guitar.

My previous experience was focused mostly on learning chords, songs, and how to read tablature. On my own I discovered the Hal Leonard Method beginner book series, and started to teach myself to read music from it.

As I started my lessons with Rich he immediately did 3 things that impressed me. First he assessed what I knew, and what my goals were. He reviewed my progress in the Hal Leonard book and encouraged me to keep using it, making some key observations and suggestions during the first lesson that immediately helped me. And the most impressive thing was that he started teaching music theory from the very first lesson, showing me scales, introducing the Circle of Fifths, and demonstrating the application of understanding the principles, patterns, and theory. This made me very hungry to learn.

I don't want to just learn how to play songs on the guitar, rather I want to learn to make music with this instrument. That is what Rich is teaching. And his approach is very comfortable and fun. He adapted himself to my learning style and my needs from the beginning, and I can see myself continuing to learn from him for many years.

Brian Saunders is an amazing singer from what I have heard him share with my daughter Charly in her singing lessons. He is thorough, patient and takes the time necessary to cover important aspects of exercising and training one's voice. Charly is only 4 years old and has some natural abilities and Brian is helping to strengthen Charly's strengths and build on her weaknesses. Charly is learning to exercise and strengthen her voice and voice box, she has fun going through the exercises. Brian also allows her to sing her favorite song(s) and work on getting over some stage fright. I'm so glad for Brian giving back -- it is allowing my daughter to have a chance at something she may be and learn to be good at -- and that is singing! Thanks Brian and we look forward to many years ahead. Debbie & Charly

Brian's teaching is really good! He has an awesome technique. When I started just 3 weeks ago, i had about 2 and a half octaves in my range. I already have over 3 full octaves! The warm ups may seem strange at first ( and kinda silly) but they really work. Just through these past few weeks I feel much better about my singing, mega confidence boost!!! I would definitely recommend Brian's lessons to anyone who wants to sing!
