Yana Giles has been the best piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from out of all 5 teachers I've had. She is patient, encouraging and motivational through every piece she assigns me. My appreciation for music grew an enormous amount after beginning lessons with her. My hand technique improved, as well as performance ability. I recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano! Even if you have already learned the piano and wish to improve somehow, Yana will show you a new understanding of music that you never thought you could have.

Since I am slightly more skilled than a beginner (i.e. I can play some chords), we spent our first lesson assessing my skill level, working on some finger exercises and developing a game plan for future lessons. I can tell she will be patient and knows her way around a guitar. If Ariana can get me to the next level, and show me some blues guitar, I would be more than happy to give her that 5th star!

Ariana was professional and kind. I'm older and a little slower but she was patient with me. On my first lesson I felt like I learned some chords. And even if I find that I'm not naturally mucical inclined, I feel that I could still learn to play the guitar because of the way she teaches.

About Anthony
I am a professional vocalist, instrumentalist ( guitar, mandolin, piano, bass, ukulele), actor, writer and string theorist with a degree in Theatre from Oklahoma State University. I sing, act and play instruments for professional theatres in the Dallas area and have music directed community and childrens productions. I am largely self taught and consider myself my own best student and once in college built a guitar completely out of materials found at home depot. I have also studied voice, piano and guitar with several industry professionals.

I am a treasure trove of information about instruments. Consultation is included in the price and this includes everything from selecting a new instruments to basic set up and repair.

I place a large emphasis on ear training, which helps you to hear the structure and flow of music. Ear trai
ning is imperative for more advanced students to learn before they can begin improvisation. Its like giving a man a fish vs teaching a man to fish. Its also a great transition into the theory part of your instrument specifically for kids who often pick up and latch on to the concept. Ear training properly though is not only a daily process but can be difficult for some so if you feel like this isn't for you that is okay because it all comes down to what you want.

My voice students will learn to relax into their singing and to strengthen their voice week to week. Each student receives a personalized plan of daily exercises based on their needs and weekly performance. I also offer audition coaching for those in the musical theatre community. For kids and beginners we start with basic breath control and diction. For more advanced students we work on improvisation

My instrumental students will begin by learning ear training and basic structure from there I make it about you and what you want to learn. I am a big believer in genre bending instruments. I for instance play jazz and blues mandolin. If you're wondering why you have never heard of this its because you can count the number of culturally relevant jazz and blues mandolinists on one hand. There are also reasonably few people who teach this as it is something so rarely done. If you have latched on to a particular genre of music I'd love to help you explore it.

Acting students are encouraged to dabble in all parts of theatre and film as many roles require you to be a jack of many trades. Character development and emoting convincingly is only part of the game.

Cancelation policy: 24 hour notice or in case of emergency with doctors note.

Hi there! I have a BA in Music focused on percussion, voice and conducting. I have sang in choirs, opera choirs and small ensambles. As a soloist, I have been invited to sing with choirs and in the opera stage. I have also had the oportunity to travel to different countries singing opera as part of the opera choir for productions here in the United States, the Caribbean, Europe and Japan. I have been teaching and coaching voices for 15 years and have taught in Puerto Rico and in Vienna, Austria. Watching my students grow everytime they take a lesson is what I enjoy most! No matter their level, I help all my students develop great technique in order to free their voices and sing properly. I guarantee that you'll learn all the tools required to achieve your best as a singer and performer.

Pedro Tirado is a gifted, insightful voice teacher/coach. He knew exactly what was hindering my vocal development and how to correct it. His explanations were clear and on point. Within only a few lessons my voice was significantly healthier, it was bigger and more flexible. He got me to sing up to an E6, five notes I didn't know I had after a lifetime of choral singing, mostly as a soprano. Although I had taken voice lessons before, I made more progress in three months with Pedro Tirado than I made in an entire year with another teacher. If you want to uncover your voice's full potential, go to Pedro.

He will guide you and teach you what you need. The posture, the way you need to breath, the way you're supposed to "stretch" your voice, the exercises you need to practice and many more things. I started not knowing anything and singing horribly but he taught me that you need to trust in yourself and you need to let your voice just flow, don't hold it back. Believe it or not, your voice has a personality, that was something he always told me. Let him mold you and teach you what he knows. He's the best teacher ever. If you have the opportunity to take classes with him, I suggest you do so. You're gonna be surprised not only with him but with yourself. He's kind, humble, hardworking and a great person overall.

About Alice
Sharing the joy, beauty, and sense of accomplishment achieved by playing and listening to classical music is something that brings me great joy and pleasure! I progressed quickly as an 11-year-old beginner violinist and quickly realized that violin is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Not everyone that begins violin lessons will stick with it their whole life, but I want the chance to introduce students to (or help them progress in) a musical experience that can be life changing.

I hold a B.M.A. in Violin Performance from Brigham Young University- Idaho. During my undergraduate studies I participated in many music competitions winning multiple awards including the opportunity to solo with the Weber State Symphony Orchestra. I have performed with professional groups such as the Idaho Falls Symphony, Cheyenne Symphony, and Wyom
ing Symphony as well as multiple college symphonies and chamber ensembles. These experiences have deepened my love and appreciation for music and my desire to share my talents with others.

I am also a trained Music Together Teacher and enjoy helping young families bring music alive with their children in music class and at home. I have also worked as a Paraprofessional at Laramie Junior High School where I helped teach Orchestra. From these different types of training and experience I have gained insight on how to best introduce and teach musical concepts to students of many different levels. Every person is different and I would love the opportunity to teach in the way that is best for you.
