About David
David graduated from the Phillips Jr. College in Salt Lake City, UT to receive an Associates degree in 1994 for Business Management. He began playing drums at seventeen, and soon after studied under a professional instructor and musician for 2 years. He continued to study at Brighton Music for 4 years, learning to fine tune his technique and dynamics, studying jazz. Soon after, David began performing professionally in bands for rock, pop and Jazz, and started teaching part time. In 2004, David began teaching privately and at a local music school. He offers rock, linear playing, shuffles, fusion drumming, double bass, funk drumming, Latin styles, jazz, independence, snare drum studies, and stick control. I teach all levels from beginning to advanced. I care about my students, and want the best for them. I will always try to keep lesson
s fun. I will not hesitate to go the extra mile for students when learning to play the drums, even if that means spending extra quality time with them.

My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about.

About Henrik
Hello my name is Henrik! I have been playing the saxophone ever since I first picked one up in grade school. I consider myself a goofy individual who takes my instrument very seriously. I have been teaching private students for about eight years. I am currently getting my degree in Saxophone Performance from BYU. I love it when my students learn to have fun while practicing and gain confidence in performing. No matter your schedule or location, I am determined to make a difference and help people improve. I have a flexible class schedule that allows you to pick a time that works best for you.

I find it most successful to prepare a lesson for each student before hand, rather than going over the same thing with every one of them. You can expect a well rounded range of exercises and practice techniques. From motif development, t
une memorization and progressive patterns, to theory studies, music analyzation and playing along with the great recordings with the pros.

I took music theory in high school and it made zero sense! After I graduated I was determined to figure it out so I went hunting for a teacher. Eventually I found Henrik and he was one of the greatest teachers ecspecially for such a hard concept. So thankful for the lessons. I highly suggest taking any of his lessons if he can teach music theory.

About Gregory
I help my students discover and develop their own sound and use their own natural voice. I show them ways of using the voice that are new, adding on to what they already know, to make confident musicians who sing with ease and power.

I love aiding in the discovery process and being a part of the journey of curiosity my students embark on to identify their own natural voice. Together we cultivate musical skills which uncover this hidden gem and transform it into an impressive instrument of expression.

About Peter
I love sharing knowledge! Math has always been a passion for me, and I competed in several math competitions even in elementary school. Since then I have tutored many students in math from a fourth grade level to college math. I scored a 34 on the ACT and I enjoy helping others achieve their dreams by getting college scholarships. I lived in Italy for more than 2 years and have worked as an Italian teacher and tutor for 5 years. I have been playing guitar and making music for 19 years. You can check out my CD, "Songs from Pablo's Attic," on Spotify and iTunes. I am currently attending graduate school at the University of Utah and our tutoring endeavors help us work through school in a meaningful way.

Peter is an excellent one-on-one teacher for Italian. Based on his background, I'm not surprised to find him very knowledgable about the language as it is currently spoken. In our sessions, he often explains the nuances of words and phrases based on usage, is careful to guide correct pronunciation and adds in multiple phrases of common speech. He has assembled a workbook that is well-organized and clear; we have progressed through it week by week and it has a nice feel of building a usable knowledge of key verbs, words and phrases. Peter is great at teaching and sharing what he knows, and on top of all of this he is flexible to the student's pace, needs and interests. We paused in our progress through the workbook to focus on specific topics like directions, clothing, colors, food, the urban setting, etc. Weekly he sends me sentences via a Google doc and I work and them and send my translations into Italian back--works great! I am excited to have Peter as my teacher and I think you will be, too. I plan on working with him through the course and beyond. Grazie mille, Peter!
