About Ben
Hello, my name is Ben and GUITAR IS MY BUSINESS...AND MY BUSINESS IS GOOD so please consider me. I've been playing guitar for over 18 years and have been in playing bands for 12 years. Recently after the band broke up, I decided to further my education and went to Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. There I was taught by the best guitar players in the world. Marty Friedman, Paul Gilbert, Scott Henderson, Tommy Emmanuel and Johnny Hiland were just a few of the great players who gave clinics there. I received a degree in Guitar Performance and the knowledge I received there made me UNDERSTAND the mystery that is the guitar.

I can teach Rock/Metal, Country (lead and rhythm), Blues, Alternative, Acoustic, Classical, Chord Melody, Melodic Soloing, Twang, Chords, Scales, Modes, Many different lead and rhythm techniques a
nd more importantly any song you want to go over.

I feel learning to play your favorite songs is the most important and the most fun about guitar playing. After playing songs, some of the information given (scales, chords, theory, ear-training) starts to make some since and you begin to slowly figure the guitar out.

Theory and Ear-training I feel are very important to learn when trying to understand music. It just gives you a basic mathematical way of understanding how music works. It can be very frustrating to learn and takes some time to sink in so if you don't want to learn it then that is great. Ear-training is cool because when you start to understand it you can actually hear music and not just listen to it. You can listen to a chord progression on the radio and go home and play it and also improvise over it.

I encourage BEGINNERS through EXPERT to at least hear what I have to say. I have A LOT of information to give about the guitar. I played for ten years made 2 demo CDs, one full length album, another demo specifically for Metal Blade Records, was in a big cover band and so I thought I knew it all and was a great guitar player. Then I went to GUITAR SCHOOL in Hollywood and reality hit me.
I wasn't as good as I thought. When you hear the best guitar players in the world everyday for a year and a half like I did at Musicians Institute it makes you want to be better and practice, practice, practice. I learned everything there about guitar and music and I know the Right way to teach.

Please consider me for your guitar teacher I will make it fun and a good learning experience as well.

Thank you,
Ben

*** Lesson Details ***
It depends on what level the student is on and that is where we will go with the lesson. If you are a beginner we will start with the very basics. I try to make it to where you can easily understand everything taught. The most important part of the lesson is you are having fun with playing the guitar and also getting as much information as possible. Upper level students may want to go over a song they are learning or want to know about theory or chords. Usually we will talk about where you are at with your playing and then go from there.

Thanks.

About LK
I am a singer-pianist-actor Or a pianist-singer-actor. :-)
I have a bachelors degree in voice performance and a minor in piano and theater.
I have a masters degree in voice as well as a second masters in piano literature.
i have a certificate in comedy improvisation from Second City and am a professional actor. I am the owner and senior talent agent of a large talent agency in the DFW area.
My post graduate work is in vocal pedagogy.
I have been a professional teacher and performer for over 20 years.
I own and manage a professional talent agency in the DFW area.
My students come in every model imaginable - and I wouldn't have it any other way. Raw beginner or veteran actor or musician, professional recording artist, College music major or American Idol wannabe.

The arts are such a great language for communicating. I grew up
with two parents who were professional musicians (mom is a concert pianist) and I also raised 3 children who are professional musicians. We made music our native language in our home. We all have the ability to speak music when it is spoken to us. I don’t ever remember not playing the piano. I started winning piano competitions in high school. I minored in piano, and then did additional post graduate work in piano. I “speak” piano. It has served me so well as a teacher, composer, opera coach. It is really a gateway to understanding all other instruments. The same scenario with my singing.

I began my professional career as an opera singer which has taken me around the world. I have premiered works by Leonard Bernstein and Samuel Adler in addition to principal roles and concert work with Pittsburgh Opera, The Pittsburgh Symphony, Dayton Opera, the Tuscia Opera Festival and hundreds of professional engagements. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to belt the National Anthem for several major league teams in a television appearance- and has done so on multiple occasions. (Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Reds) I am passionate about vocal jazz and musical theater and am frequently found as a performer in various national and regional venues. Feature concert works include PBS (Gershwin in Concert) as well as featured solo concert works (Pergolesi Stabat Mater) on Italian Public TV.

My approach to music has always been to do what you love. I have never limited myself as a performer to a genre or an instrument. I have explored, applied myself to and enjoyed a very diverse musical career. If you have a passion for an instrument or style of music let's start there first... and then let's discover together all the things you do that uniquely define your musicianship style.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your lessons will always be engaging, challenging and fun!

I am very consistent in my approach to technique, my focus on goals and my demand for excellence. I constantly am working to access with you what your goals are and to provide feedback and support to help you achieve them.

I am very flexible in utilizing a wide variety of repertoire, resources etc. Your lessons are personalized to your skill set and your musical interests. I utilize audio and video recordings almost every week for all my students. I routinely promote and encourage my students to participate in a wide variety of competitions, recitals, workshops and master classes.

I have a very low turnover rate for students and a very high rate of students who have progressed to professional full time careers in music. Students like being a part of my studio and really like the confidence they have in their music abilities in a very short period of time.

I do not use the same curriculum for all students, in face, each curriculum is customized for that student. The components are similar: technique, repertoire, theory, listening, composing, recording and performing.

You can expect the following:You will feel very encouraged and supported in your talent. You will have measurable improvement in your skills. You will have a personal advocate to encourage and direct you in finding and creating opportunities to succeed in your music personally, academically and professionally.

I can't wait to get started!

About Jacqueline
If you're looking for a well-rounded music teacher who can give you the right tools for improving singing and musicianship in a safe and positive environment, you've come to the right place!

I have taught students from 5 to 27, but I can certainly teach older adult beginners. I am passionate about singing, teaching, and inspiring my students so they can enjoy music and singing for years to come. I work in a very sequential manner from a pedagogical standpoint and tailor each lesson to meet the needs of each student individually so that they can truly feel like they are musicians and that they have the proper tools to sing -- because success breeds success! I believe in the beauty of each student's voice I work with and that all students deserve a high quality music teacher. It is an honor and a privilege to help my students - no matt
er what they age - realize their potential, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to do so through music.

*** Lesson Details ***
More lesson times may be available than what is shown. Please send me a message if you would like to find out about other times.

Some examples of goals I can help you with:
- Improving singing technique
- Learning about vocal health
- Developing musicianship
- Learning music theory / how to read music
- Increasing self-awareness of bodily tension and how to release it

When you arrive for our first lesson, I'll start by asking you to sing a couple vocal exercises so I can listen carefully to your voice and how I can help you. I will also assess your ability to keep a steady beat, match pitch, and other basic music skills so we can move forward and see progress!

I always start with a strong foundation in the basics of singing and musicianship. After we spend at least two lessons simply establishing singing technique and going through exercises for singing, I will introduce music that is appropriate for your level of development. To help develop your basic musicianship skills, I use a sound-before-symbol approach, so we will not be reading music until you have demonstrated progress in your aural skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Spacious area with a mirror and a digital, weighted, 88-key piano

*** Policies ***
I expect students to be punctual. I will not make up time that was lost due to student tardiness, but I will always make up any time lost on my part. I will always let you know at least 24 hours in advance whether I have to cancel a lesson and I will always make it up on a future mutually convenient date.

Parents or friends may sit and watch and/or take notes for the student, but any visitors must be silent throughout the entire lesson so as not to be a distraction to the student; s/he has to be fully focused in order to get as much out of the lesson as possible. I HIGHLY encourage the older beginner student to bring a recording device to record our lesson to study the vocal exercises in personal practice sessions after our lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I have learned solid classical vocal technique from the very best, and I believe my older beginner students deserve the same tools. (My teacher has had many students that have gone on to have very successful singing careers, all over the United States and some internationally.) As a singer, I have over ten years’ performance experience as a chorister and soloist and four years' experience in singing opera/musical theatre. I am a classically trained pianist, and also have experience conducting choirs from the elementary level to the high school level.

I am a member of many professional music organizations so you know I am not just a performer but am also committed to being the best music teacher/pedagogue I can be. Please see below for the professional organizations I am a member of. I frequently attend conferences and read many professional music journals. My personal music teaching philosophy is based on the music pedagogies of Zoltan Kodaly, Edwin Gordon, and Karl Orff.

My music philosophy:
1. Music is for everyone. Anyone can learn how to sing beautifully and be a musician! However, it takes time and hard work to see progress. I want to give you the right tools (proper singing technique and basic musicianship skills) to help you foster a love of singing for years to come.
2. Mastering the basics of singing and learning about vocal health is crucial! Whatever your goals, starting with and maintaining a good technique with consistent practice will keep you from injury so you can enjoy singing for a long time.
3. The more well-rounded you are as a musician, the better. In ALL singing lessons, I embed aspects of music theory and ear-training appropriate to your level so that you can have a holistic music education and be an independent, thinking musician.
4. Music is meant to be a beautiful expression of your heart and soul! While good technique and musicianship are very important, that is only half the story. At every stage, I work to help students connect with the music inside them so they feel safe and free to express their natural and artistic sensitivity.
5. Listening is vital to understanding music! Students can expect listen to recordings of music and singers to gain insight to and understanding of style. I encourage my students to listen to or watch recordings to work on the more organic elements of music, which cannot be gained from academic study.

About Brittany
I began taking piano when I was 7 years old. My older sister was taking lessons and I wanted to be like her. One day, my mom heard some music in the background, and my older sister went grab my mom to show her it was me playing with no sheet music in front of me. I was just copying what I had heard my sister play. That is where my musical journey began. None of my immediate family plays any instruments or sings professionally. My mom decided to put me in lessons, and I have been playing ever since.

I had such a wonderful teacher and she believed I could play anything she placed in front of me. Later at the age of 12, I started playing at church and playing for people who sang solos in church. It was my piano teacher and high school choir teacher who believed I could do music in college. I auditioned and was awarded scholarship money.
I never imagined over 10 years later that I would still be teaching music.

I am such a fun, patient person when I am with my student whether in the classroom or teaching privately. Music absolutely changed my life and gave me a positive way to express myself!! I’m so glad my parents thought enough to get me started with lessons!

I have been teaching in the public schools since 2012 and privately since 2013. I took a break from teaching privately to focus on teaching high school. As I begin teaching privately again, I look forward to helping students discover their full potential. Let’s get to work!
