*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

I have got a lot of performance experiences as a first violin in the student orchestra of the city for years.
I am experienced in helping students prepare for their orchestra audition as well as guiding them to improve their orchestra performance.
In my class, students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Whether you want to develop a hobby or to seek a more professional goal in violin performance, you will find something ...
My class is designed in a student-friendly way. I will always discuss your learning goals and expectations at the very beginning; I believe a mutual understanding of the big picture between the student and the teacher will serve a good start.

In my class, you can learn with joy, making a steady progress step by step. I will also introduce a most-fit textbook to you, with plenty of supplementary learning materials provided, as well as a

Violin lessons with fun songs and strong music basics. Based on each student's strengths and weaknesses. And also, what they would like to learn and get out of lessons.
I like to keep lessons fun and interesting for each student. While concentrating on tone, rhythm, and creativity too. Look forward to getting you started!
I try to teach what the students are interested in and make it fun and interesting so that they learn the lessons and their favorite songs. Every student is different and needs to be taught in a way that makes learning easy and fun for them.
I have a passion for all people and all ages and am blessed to be able to teach from the very young, (ages 2-5 Toddlermusik lessons) to teens and adults.....all the way to senior citizens. I've had many older students all the way up to a 93 year old gentleman who is taking singing lessons and asked me to put music to his lyrics. We have recorded over 50 songs together.
I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also because they seemed exciting. I've competed in WSMA (Wi
I started playing the guitar and bass guitar when I was 13 and have never stopped practicing and performing since. I also have done a lot of writing, recording, producing, and have a Pro Tools Studio for students to use.
***College and Teaching***
I began teaching music lessons in college and enjoyed it very much. I received my B.A. in Music from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. There I was very much involved with guitar, piano, voice, trumpet, and being in bands and writing music. After receiving my B.A. I also took 3 years of Education classes at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I write, produce, and perform my music along with performing with bands around the Midwest.
***Life in Music***
After receiving my B.A. in Music, I continued teaching and opened up my home studio. After a year and a half I had enough students that I was able to quit my factory job and teach music full time. I've been teaching, performing, and writing music ever since.
***Performing and more***
I have been on stage performing music since I was 11. In school band, marching band, competing in music competitions, and in bands touring the Midwest.
I have recorded many CDs with bands and on my own. My most ambitious project was a CD of my original music called, "Girls". I've performed my music and promoted it by being interviewed on Milwaukee radio stations along with internet music sites such as CD Baby. It is very exciting talking on live radio about my music and my passion. It is also even more exciting, and scary, playing my music live on the radio, lol.
I have been teaching for over 2 decades. Students take lessons for:
* guitar (electric / acoustic)
* music theory / ear training
* studio recording / songwriting
I also give kindermusik lessons to 2-5 year old all the way up to senior citizens 70-93. I play parties, concerts, and Nursing Home performances.
I am experienced as an online (Skype) instructor, and I have taught online lessons worldwide. I've witnessed great results from my online students (both national and international).
I hope I can help you with all of your musical goals and get you going in a positive musical direction.

While Keri always nerded out listening to Bluegrass and Celtic tunes and learning them by ear (entire albums!) for fun, she practiced multiple hours every day studying classical technique and started composing and arranging her own pieces of music in high school.
Keri received her B.M. in Jazz Studies from Sonoma State University in 2015, and graduated with Distinction. Her musical goals have been centered around being diverse, open-minded, and adaptable, which has helped her cross many genres, play as a guest in several local bands, and adapting her style to whatever was necessary in the moment.
Keri received a Telly Award in 2015 for playing violin and singing the music on a Toyota Commercial, spent six years in the band "Anadel" as the violinist, background vocalist, and writer/arranger (releasing three albums), and eventually started composing music alongside a team of five other composers for TellTale Games: The Walking Dead. She also composed music for a few TellTale Games trailers, including one for "The Wolf Among Us". Keri has been featured on numerous albums (as player, producer, and arranger), and is currently spending her time writing and producing her first solo album, set to release in January 2020.
