Jon E.

Reno, NV

About Jon

I began teaching when a friend/teacher recommended me as a substitute teacher at Musicians Institute in L.A.. I walked into the class with no prior teaching experience but just took to it naturally f
rom day one. Soon I was teaching there full time. I later learned that I come from a long line of teachers, it runs in the family. I think of teaching basically as this, recognizing a students needs and goals and then communicating with them clearly and simply in order to accomplish those goals. I enjoy teaching and often learn from my students in unforeseen ways. I consider my students to be friends.

Maureen K.

Sparks, NV

About Maureen

Maureen has been teaching private voice and piano lessons since 2009 and is currently available to travel to students' homes to teach lessons. She teaches anyone with an interest and willingness to le
arn (regardless of experience level) how to sing, as well as beginning to intermediate piano lessons.

Maureen received her B.A. from Pepperdine University in 2013, with an Applied Music emphasis in classical vocal performance. Her teaching style is tailored for each individual student, in that what works for one student won't necessarily work for the next (particularly in regards to singers), and strives towards finding the optimal method that encourages and helps students to improve. She firmly believes that anyone who is willing to dedicate the time and effort to learning a new instrument is capable of doing so, and looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

Holly S.

Reno, NV

About Holly

Greetings! My name is Holly and I absolutely love teaching music. I'm currently a full time elementary general music teacher where I teach all students grades k-6. I earned a Bachelor of Music Educati
on from The Ohio State University in the spring of 2012, then moved out to Reno for my full-time teaching job. I especially love teaching beginner students on piano, trumpet, guitar and french horn. I can teach intermediate students on trumpet and horn and advanced students on horn. (French horn was my main instrument in college.) I like to make my lessons fun, creative and full of juicy musical knowledge. I'm quick to tell a joke and help new students feel comfortable and relaxed. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn a new instrument!
