Jared L.

Louisville, KY

About Jared

I've been teaching in the Louisville area for nearly six years and have worked with over 100 clients for over 5,000 lessons. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Whether you're looking to learn to play an instrument you've always wanted to play, learn how to play some of your favorite songs, or just want to learn for fun, I'm here to help you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advanced students who'd like fine tuning. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you'r
e an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert in need of some fine tuning, I'll carefully evaluate your strengths and weakness and create a lesson plan suited to your individual learning style, interests and needs. We'll discuss where you'd like to go with music, and I'll help you get there! After 3 or 6 months with me, you'll learn the musical foundations of rhythm, ear training, posture, technique, music theory and performance, and maybe a few of your favorite songs!

Jared got to know my grandaughter quickly. He saw how smart she is, and howshe picks up on things at a fast pace. Autumn is six, and loves to sing, yet has a slight speech impediment. She's looking forward to her next visit, and is excited for a future in music. Thanks Jared ! See you Saturday!

Jared is an excellent teacher. I am 62 and took lessons from Jared for about 6 months. He individualizes his lessons, he is very knowledgeable in every aspect of music. He communicates and gives as much or as little information as you desire. We also covered a lot of theory as part of the lessons which I enjoyed.

He has a nice manor and is respectful.
I recommend him highly.

Justin is a great piano teacher

My 6 year old has piano lessons with Justin. He enjoys his lessons and I'm a proud mother when I listen to him play. My son is a little talker but Justin is always kind, very patient, and uses relatable examples for him to better understand. He encourages which motivates my son to want to practice more. He is also very polite, never without a friendly smile, and without a doubt loves teaching music. I hope Justin continues teaching music by the time my now 1 year old is old enough to take lessons. My family truly appreciates him.

Alison S.

Louisville, KY

About Alison

I'm passionate about music and love sharing that through performance and teaching. I received my degree in viola performance from the University of Louisville School of Music in May 2010. I studied under Chien-Ju Liao along with many other great violists in the Louisville community. I've also had the pleasure of playing with many quartets, chamber ensembles and orchestras including Louisville Youth Orchestra, All-State, the UofL Symphony, and the Louisville Orchestra. Some of my greatest moments involve playing in Carnegie Hall and premiering a world-class ballet performance with the UofL Symp
hony Orchestra. Music has been a part of my life since I was little and I can't imagine life without it. Along with viola, I also study, play and teach piano and violin.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm not a really strict teacher but I do encourage my students to push themselves and really make the most of their practice time, especially if they have busy schedules. I believe in customizing my teaching style to my student's needs and desires. I give positive feedback, while never sacrificing constructive feedback.

After 3 months with a beginning Viola, Violin, or Piano student, I expect you to be able to read the notes (without having to write them all in), understand basic rhythms, have learned how to play a scale (or more), and have completed a few of songs.

After 6 months, I expect that my students will have relative ease with reading their music, playing with hands together on piano, and starting to master basic bowing techniques and coordination on Violin and Viola.

Learning an instrument is difficult, but so rewarding, and with the right teacher, can be a wonderful experience. I want my students to have that wonderful experience, I am encouraging, enthusiastic and I make my teaching style as comprehensive and interesting as possible!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room, grand piano, room for parents to wait on a couch or chair, music stand, metronome

*** Travel Equipment ***
music, instrument, shoulder rest and rosin (violin and viola)

*** Specialties ***
I mainly focus on classical. As I teach, I incorporate music theory so that my students may have a better understanding of how the music is structured. I also teach popular music for my students that what to learn some music from their favorite bands!

Playing the piano is fun.

The first lessons Alison coached me on the fundamentals of piano playing, but also spent a good time listening to me play. The following lessons she added a songbook, delved deeper into the core course book, and added Beethoven (which I love). In short she had adapted our lessons to her evaluation of my ability and my feedback to build a course trajectory that would keep the lessons engaging, challenging, but fun.

Overall she is a great instructor and you feel no pressure playing in front of her.

Chris G.

Louisville, KY

About Chris

I am a working pianist/keyboardist/instructor in the Louisville area. I graduated from the University of Louisville's Jazz Studies Program in December 2013. During my time at UofL, I studied Brazilian music in Sao Paulo and Brasilia for 6 months. My current professional work includes playing in a Soul/R&B group, smaller jazz ensembles, and solo piano for various restaurants/private events. I enjoy playing a wide variety of music, from Jazz and Classical to Pop/Rock music of the past 60 years. I started teaching music privately during my undergraduate degree, and have experience in directing sm
all and large groups as they prepare for musicals, wedding dates, song-and-dance competitions, etc. I look forward to teaching students of all ability levels and am comfortable accepting beginning students with no prior experience. For students who already have some playing experience, I have a lot of professional/practical knowledge to offer.

Jordan was a great teacher! He was always well prepared, organized, professional, and personal. He is one of the few teachers I've had that genuinely care about the success of his students wether they are aspiring guitarists or just somebody looking to strum some chords. Highly recommend!
