Joel M.

Los Angeles, CA

About Joel

Personal Bio:
Hi, I'm Joel. I'd say that my decision to take piano lessons turned out to be one of the most important things I've ever done. I've made great friends through music and discovered my
gifts. I am a 2014 grad of the University of Southern California's "Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television" program. I received my undergraduate degree from College of the Ozarks, where I studied piano performance, theory, composition and orchestration. I have also interned with television composer Mike Post (NYPD Blue, Law and Order SVU). Playing piano has opened up these different opportunities for me. It instills confidence and creativity. Over the years, I wouldn't have succeeded if it weren't for the patience and encouragement of my teachers. They not only taught me how to play, but helped me gain an appreciation for music and its history.

Joel is a truly gifted pianist and well versed in music theory. He was always quick with an answer to any of my many questions. He was also very patient with me as I was an adult taking lessons for the first time.

Cullam O.

Springfield, MO

About Cullam

I've been taking piano lessons since I was only five years of age, and have been enjoying music for my entire life. It is this love of music and consistent burst of endorphins that I would like to pa
ss on to my future students. Whether you intend to become a musician or not, I believe that channeling music is one of the biggest catalysts for creativity, critical thinking, and general well-being. Not only do I want to better peoples' lives with teaching music, but I truly enjoy it; I get the same, overwhelmingly happy and emotional feeling teaching music as I do playing it.

Apart from taking lessons for such a long time, I'm currently a piano performance major at Missouri State University, and plan to acquire a Masters and Doctor of Musical Arts degree later in the future.

I have a very flexible schedule, am willing to teach any age, and can teach anywhere in the Springfield area (though Ellis Hall is preferred). If you're hesitant to try out lessons, your first lesson is half the price of what I usually charge.

Katherine G.

Springfield, MO

About Katherine

Welcome! I'm a California-based singer, I am classically trained in voice and violin from a former Philharmonic performer. I also started my high school ukulele club in 2012 that is still going strong
today. I was in Select Choir all years in high school, which was an audition-only class. I was also in Marching Band and was the vocalist for the school Jazz Band. I have performed for over 8,000 people at the Camp Pendleton Mud Run Race Series over 12 times (12 races throughout 2 years). I have sung for each game of a season of minor league baseball in Palm Springs, California. I teach based on my students desire to learn. I will teach basic theory unless the student wants more than basic theory. The first lesson is when I will establish where the student is and how to teach them. All they need to do is have a song of any genre prepared and able to perform it for me at their first lesson. Please be aware that I am not a Broadway vocal teacher, I am also not going to teach you to sing the way that they sound. I look forward to teaching you!
