Dr. Stephanie is insightful with a gentle guidance and encouraging way about her that is magnetic. Her type of instruction is calming while still challenging to my children. I think what is most remarkable is her ability to pull out of a child what they are longing to show the world while still letting them know that these moments of training and practice are also for their inner growth.

My daughter is 12 and just had her first lesson with Dr. Stephanie. We both were so incredibly pleased with the lesson! Dr. Stephanie was warm, welcoming, intelligent and clearly incredibly experienced. My daughter can't stop talking about how much she loved the lesson and she just can't wait for her next one!

Scott K.

Tucson, AZ

From producing your first note to Pop and Jazz songs to seriously intense Classical music.

About Scott

As a composer I have found it necessary never to stray too far from performance. The shear exhilaration one can obtain through playing an instrument is unique and powerful. I have devoted my life to trying to understand and master this elusive beast we call Music. As a child, of a peculiar spirit, I demanded my parents get me guitar and piano lessons. I felt an instant connection to these instruments and was compelled to investigate. After years of inquiry I ended up attending New School for the Arts, a high school devoted to the arts where I
studied music composition. From there, I went on t
o the University of Arizona to receive degrees in Music Composition and Philosophy with minors in Mathematics and English Literature. For my Masters' programs I wondered into the world of contemporary composers and experimental music at Mills College in Oakland where I finished my M.A. in Music Composition as well as my M.F.A. in Electronic Music and Recording Media. All the while pursuing a mastery of the instruments that caught my ear in the first place.

I have now returned to Tucson to work on my music and further my education in the field of philosophy at the University of Arizona.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am laid back and playful in my approach. I like to gear lessons toward the interests of the student, and if I am doing my job correctly, all traditional technique will be painless. I also like to delve into music theory to give one a deeper appreciation as well as an understanding and steady grasp of the tools of composition if their heart is so inclined. When it comes to music I am rather eclectic and I feel every style has something to add to the techniques of a solid performer, so I tend to draw from many disparate places to offer a fuller experience. In no time at all, you should be playing pieces you love, understanding how they work, and perhaps embellishing them or writing your own.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard, Guitar, Amps

*** Travel Equipment ***
Provide: My guitar, music stand, and amp if necessary.

Functional playing of various musical styles and basic music theory.

About Kari

I hold a Master of Music degree in Music Composition and a Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Education: Vocal Emphasis. I am a member of Pi Kappa Lamba National Music Honor Society and Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society.

I began playing piano at the age of seven and progressively became involved in accompanying and singing.

I have worked as an accompanist as well as a private instructor in piano and voice, and have performance experience as well.

I love sharing music with all peo
ple and enjoy the opportunity to share my knowledge. I enjoy working with students of all ages and design all lessons to match the needs of the individual.

I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
As an instructor I offer a relaxed learning environment. While lessons should be structured and productive, they should also be enjoyable. I am adaptable to the needs of each individual student and plan my curriculum choices on that basis. I like to provide a solid foundation in the basics of music theory while also working on technique.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Keyboard/amp, microphone, music stands.

I really enjoyed her calmness and plasant atmosphere during the singing lesson. She was very professional flexible, and accommodating in nature. She is also very organized and constructive. I was very sad that she was moving away. Thank you, Kari.

I highly recommend Kari! I'm an absolute beginner and was extremely nervous to sing, but Kari made me feel comfortable and supported all the way. She teaches many styles of music, and even music theory and how to read notes. I really can't recommend Kari highly enough!!

Kate S.

Tucson, AZ

I have been teaching beginning and intermediate piano to students of all ages. I am especially good with younger students, or students who need a little extra support to succeed. I use the Alfred and Bastien series, plus I always ask my students what they want to learn, and we work on that in their lessons.

About Kate

I believe that a good teacher helps students teach themselves. Most of a student’s learning will be done on his or her own at home or in a practice room, so a teacher must give them the necessary tools to succeed, as well as constant support and encouragement. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a Bachelor's in Vocal Performance, and from Penn State with a Master's in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy. I have been teaching all levels of voice, and beginning/intermediate piano for almost ten years. I also have extensive experience working with special needs students. My goal is
to teach healthy, grounded singing, no matter what musical style my students are interested in pursuing. I focus on balanced and centered body alignment, accurate body mapping, an easy breathing technique, and vibrancy/flexibility in sound. If there is unnecessary tension or problems in these areas, this can hold students back from truly enjoying singing.

Kate is SO knowledgeable in all genres of voice/singing. I have had voice lessons since a child, and then as an adult have sun in philharmonic choirs and Episcopalian choirs -- but Kate is able to help me make the bridge from that sort of singing to what I want -- to sing more jazz and folk/country songs.

She pinpoints issues accurately and quickly... with excellent remedies!

Piano Tips and Techniques: Playing Glissandos
There are many musical terms that you will hear when learning to play any instrument, and the piano is no exception. You probably started off with terms related to tempo, such as largo and allegro, and progressed accordingly. You will learn new terms at every level, so maybe you have already heard the word glissando. Even if you haven’t heard of the term, you probably have heard a glissando in music. For example, Jerry Lee Lewis’s song "Great Balls of Fire" uses glissandos. Derived from t
