Bradley K.

South Bend, IN

About Bradley

I've been involved with music since preschool: Singing solos publicly since age 5. In addition to my piano and trumpet skills, I started singing Handel's Messiah in high-school. First, as a baritone a
nd then as a tenor during my senior year. I've sung on every continent save Antarctica. And have performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fischer Hall, Kennedy Center and several major cathedrals.

During the foundationer year of the Tallis Scholars Summer School in England, director Peter Philips commented that I had a "very impressive" voice.

James Jordan, of the Westminster Choir College, made the observation that I was "very musical" after working with him a week at the inaugural year of the Choral Music Institute at Oxford.

My vocal training includes that with Richard Conrad (Boston), Charles Reid (Andrews University), Stephen Smith & Paul Sperry (Aspen Music Festival), David Jones (Teacher Mentoring Program), Mark St. Laurent (Massachusetts).

I've worked as Director of Vocal Activities and Choral Studies at Walla Walla University and as a graduate student at Andrews University, I maintained a voice studio.

My students have successfully auditioned for and been accepted into the vocal programs at the following :

Indiana University, Bloomington, Michigan State University, Bethel College and Western Michigan University.

Bradley made me feel at ease right away and quickly assessed my vocal needs. He showed me techniques to truly help me find my upper register. I look forward to my future sessions!

Anna is a talented pianist and teacher. We have worked with her for seven years and our children have grown into beautiful musicians and music lovers. Anna meets children where they are at but always pushes her students to be the best they can be. She finds compelling music that each individual child is interested in and motivates in kind and caring ways.

Collin C.

Mishawaka, IN

About Collin

Music is one of my many passions in life, and nothing pleases me more than sharing and teaching others about the wonderful skills that are developed when playing musical instruments. I'm the ultimate
people person, taking the best interest in each individual student in order to progress their skills at an appropriate rate that is fun and exciting with each lesson! Music is challenging and can be frusterating at times, but leave it to me to help break down and simplify it so you can gain confidence in yourself and overall enjoy each lesson as we take steps towards your own goals.

Maddi B.

Indianapolis, IN

About Maddi

I grew up loving sports and playing non-stop. In high school I was a three-sport athlete. I played volleyball, basketball, and threw discus/shot in track.
I'm currently a Junior at Butler University
, where I'm studying business. I have spent the last few years coaching withing the Zionsville community. I'm currently the 7th grade coach at Zionsville West Middle School and a club coach.
I have also playing the guitar for the past four years and have an extra guitar available if needed. The Ukulele is newer to the bunch, but I have picked it up quite well and its perfect for younger children to learn to play.
Coaching youth sports and learning to play instruments has taught me quite a bit about patience. I'm a firm believer that anyone can learn to play a sport/instrument that they are passionate about. Aside from the physical benefits of sports, I strongly believe that athletics teaches you countless life skills.

Volleyball · In home
Maddi was my daughter's 7th grade volleyball coach at Zionsville West Middle School. I must admit, sometimes watching her at games was more entertaining than watching the rally. She is full of energy and excitement, always moving, talking, and reminding the girls what to do. My daughter had never played before and could not serve over the net at tryouts. By the end of the season, she was serving 85% from behind the service line! My daughter always had positive things to say about Maddi when she came home from practice. Maddi was very dedicated to developing my daughter's skillset, which helped her gain the confidence she needed to try out again next year.
