Doreene met with our daughter and made her feel at ease and comfortable from the start. She listened to her sing and made several suggestions that made an immediate difference in her singing. Looking forward to many more sessions with her.

Brian L.

Sandy, UT

About Brian

I have been teaching for 15 yrs. and playing for 34 yrs. I absolutely love to watch the learning process take shape. I get a great deal of joy from teaching and witnessing students pass and achieve greatness. When they overcome what seem like insurmountable odds to them and then perform something flawlessly, especially in a live setting, It just does not get any better than this. I cannot imagine doing anything else with my time. I have a strong ability to connect with each individual student and create a personal lesson plan for each and every unique personality. Depending on the person, I wi
ll personally tailor a lesson plan for that individual based on their natural ability, coordination skills, mindset, musicality and overall rhythmic sense. I also try to give each and every student the confidence needed to get up in front of an audience or crowd of people and still perform with elegance and dignity. Just relax and play. That is what it is all about, right, having fun. Let's play.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a professional lesson plan in place. I like to teach from literature and also from feeling and hearing the music. I am very amiable and straight forward with my students. I stress very strongly the importance of a good practice routine. With lots of practice you will become a great drummer. But, fun is what everything is all about. If you do not have fun then I have failed. I have never purposely failed, so Lets Go.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate from Home, Separate Entrance, Music studio soundproof, Parents and Friends Waiting area with couch and full view through glass window of drum room where lessons take place. Sound can be piped into waiting area or completely muted. Lesson room has two drum sets and state of the art Audio Equipment set up for beautiful sound production and clarity. I also use video playback with studio quality sound to increase learnability. This has been proven to be a very successful tool in the learning process!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Sticks, Pad, Snare Drum and Lots of energy! Let's Rock.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Funk, Punk,Country, Metal.
I also teach Jazz, Swing, Latin, Big Band, Afro-Cuban.
I focus on three main areas:
1. Reading music
2. Playing with recorded music
3. Rudiments and Stick Control
Plus of course proper technique and dynamics.
I am also associated with local Middle School and High School Jazz Band and Orchestra Teachers. I can greatly improve your students ability to compete and participate in the Jazz Band, Orchestra or Percussion Classes taught at the Middle to High School level. Let's Swing.

OUTSTANDING INSTRUCTOR

As an instructor Brian is patient, consistent and has many angles for reaching students who may be struggling to gain musical concepts. He finds lots of ways for his students to observe professional drummers and opportunities for his students to perform at whatever level they've achieved. The studio is well equipped and comfortable with an great observation area for parents and friends of the student. If you want to learn drumming Brian is the one to contact!

Couldn't be better

My son has been taking drum lessons from Brian for several years.We were looking for a teacher that would teach the important stuff like reading music, basic beats, as well as the fun stuff, learning songs. Brian is everything we were looking for. My son loves to play and enjoys going to lessons. Brian has also provided opportunities for his students to attend workshops & concerts put on by celebrity drummers. If your kids want to learn to play drums, Brian is the guy to teach them.

Nicole E.

Salt Lake City, UT

About Nicole

I am a graduate student at Brigham Young University School of Music and also hold a Bachelor's degree in Flute Performance. I have 11 years teaching experience with students of all ages, and 16 years of playing experience. My students regularly hold top positions in their school bands and orchestras.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe music lessons should be both exciting and educational. I have high expectations for my students, and we work together in lessons to help you become an excellent musician.

Lessons are structured around learning technical studies like scales and arpeggios
, etudes or exercise books, and solos. I also believe in helping students develop sight reading skills, so lessons regularly end with a duet that the student sight reads as I play along.

In the end my goal is to train you to be a musician who no longer needs a teacher. I would love for my students to go on in the professional music industry, but recognize that many will just want to play in the community orchestra, or a college band, or in a church group. My goal is to give you the skills to be able to have a self perpetuating music experience when you are finished taken lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard Piano, Music Stand, Chair, and my large collection of flute music.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my instrument but expect you to provide the music stand and anything else you might need.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical flute. I am comfortable teaching any music found in the classical flute repertoire along with technique, tone studies, and pertinent etudes.

Flute · In studio
Our son has been taking lessons from Nicole for a year now. We have been impressed with his overall progress and his continued interest. We appreciate Nicole's professionalism; she clearly communicates expectations for the students and the parents and is very good about keeping lessons and punctuality. The style of the lesson has also been very good for our son--there are lesson pieces, performance pieces, and sight reading. Nicole has also helped our son with music theory. We have had a very positive experience working with Nicole, and are happy that through her style our son continues to enjoy playing the flute.

Kait K.

Salt Lake City, UT

About Kait

Kait K. has been teaching singers of all ages and abilities since 1997. She has taught in public schools, colleges and universities and privately in San Diego & Los Angeles, CA and Salt Lake City, UT. She has owned and operated The Performer Studio (a school and performance venue for singers) since 1997 and most recently, Salt Lake Singers Academy.

As a teacher, Kait's focus with each student is to help them really understand both the anatomy and health of their vocal instrument and to help them tap into their very best sound in an engaging and fun way...

Kait: "Every singer has stumbl
ing blocks. It is my passion to help them identify those, understand them and then...shatter them. Singers are complex people with complex instruments, and no matter what our expertise level, the DESIRE to sing is something to be protected and nurtured. I value honesty, discipline and detail work in the singing studio. I find those three things, meshed always with a genuine sense of FUN, are the keys to helping singers unlock and develop what makes them unique artists with something to say."

Professionally as a singer, Kait has headlined her own blues band, sung in several cover bands and also performed as a featured lead vocalist alongside John Lee Hooker Jr. (Blues Grammy artist nominee) on his western tour of the U.S. Kait was the lead singer and co-songwriter for the band Light Vizion and co-produced the band's debut album "Looking For An Angel" and can be heard as the solo vocalist on the album "True North" by Tristan Moore. She is currently a freelance vocalist in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has sung lead and solo in a large variety of venues, including Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall, Rose Wagner (Jeanne Wagner Stage) and several local clubs and restaurants as well as festivals and outdoor concerts including the annual Scarecrow Festival and the Brown Bag Concert Series and Furry Fiesta Fundraiser! While in Los Angeles, Kait performed in numerous clubs and blues music venues, including The Brown Derby, The Blue Cafe and BB Kings in Hollywood. She has also worked as a professional singer for several years in the Los Angeles Music Industry where she performed in several bands and worked as an in demand "session" singer (someone people hire to come in and quickly record vocals for various professional and experimental projects).

Kait's own education as a singing performer includes a B.F.A. from the Actor Training Program at the University of Utah, an M.F.A. in Musical Theatre Performance from San Diego State University plus 5 years post-grad study in Los Angeles training in voice with world master voice teacher, Edward Sayegh.

In 2004 Kait returned to her roots in Salt Lake City, UT to continue both her singing and teaching career. She continues to write, arrange and record as a freelance singer, and has appeared as the featured vocalist with groups like Children's Dance Theatre and Ririe-Woodbury as well as other local blues and rock bands.

Kait: "My goal with each student is to help them to become the very best they can be as singing performers. But in addition, I aim to lift their spirit during the time they spend here, so that when they leave for the day, after the work they've done, they feel better, more inspired, more empowered and more confident and driven than they did when they arrived at my door. Teaching and watching my students evolve as both artists and people is thrilling! I have the honor of watching them find themselves through music while they build truly lifelong friendships with the performing peers they meet in the classes and performances they participate in here...they end up finding some of their 'kindred spirits' in life here, and that is something that is priceless as an artist."

Denise H.

South Jordan, UT

About Denise

I love teaching and I love performing. I graduated from Brigham Young University in Violin Performance in 2012. Since graduation I've recorded and performed with various rock and folk music groups. My goal as a teacher is to help nurture a love and appreciation for the violin and foster creativity and dedication.

I started violin at 5 years old after begging my parents for over a year to take lessons. I started with the Suzuki method and then moved on to more traditional teachers until I started prepping for college auditions and took lessons from a BYU professor. While at BYU I perfor
med with the Philharmonic Orchestra and various chamber groups. I love to write and improv so I perform and record with anywhere from pop, progressive rock, to folk groups.

When I teach of younger and beginning students I start with Suzuki, small études, scales, and solfedge. As students mature musically I add other repertoire and technique study.
