Excellent teacher!

Great instructor!
Katie Ambrose
Barbara is a fantastic instructor. I took lessons as a child into my mid teens and quit. I recently decided to start back up. With 20+ years gap in my instruction, I was nervous about finding an instructor who could keep up with me. I knew I could still easily play music but would have LOTS of questions in the interim that I theoretically would have known otherwise playing the given level of music.

Barbara has been a PERFECT fit for what I was looking for in an instructor. She’s been helping me refine my skills and fill in many gaps in my instruction. She’s been wonderfully supportive and encouraging. I’ve felt my confidence grow tremendously over the last month. I can truly sense that she’s as excited to be teaching as I am to be learning.

I HIGHLY recommend Barb, especially to adults looking to rekindle a long lost love of piano<3

Hello beautiful singers! My name is Hannah and I have been steadily training for the past 15 years, specializing in vocal pedagogy. Through years of training in both the professional world and extensive education, I firmly believe that the key to easy and lasting singing is in healthy vocal production. My desire is to transform the voices placed in my care through the simple science of muscular development, and transform hearts through the repetition of them seeing what they are truly capable of.

About Hannah

I am a professional singer, a signed singer/songwriter with Destiny Music Records, and a worship leader at my congregation, where I also teach my students! In addition, I am the residential Music Director for Rich Theatre in Virginia Beach. I graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University in vocal p

I believe that each person is drawn to the drums for different reasons; some have dreams of performing in stadiums for thousands of people, others simply want to be able to play along to their favorite records in the garage on a Sunday afternoon. Whatever your goals are, my goal as a teacher is to always keep sight of your initial motivations for drumming, craft an individual plan to help you get there, and to have some fun along the way! (All styles & levels welcome)

I have been playing the drums for 20+years and teaching for 8+years. I studied jazz at the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, Ohio, but am no stranger to playing Rock, RnB, Punk, etc..at dirty dive bars, music festivals, and other less stuffy environments :)

It has been a pleasure to begin to learn to play the drums with Zach. He has made the lessons immensely enjoyable and given me the time and space to master one element of drumming before on to another.
Karen
Zach is not only a kick-ass drummer, he’s a great teacher too. I never thought of myself as musically inclined but after six months of lessons with Zach I have changed my tune. Thanks to Zach’s patience, kindness and skill, I’m actually learning how to play the drums at age 45! I look forward to my lessons every week and highly recommend Zach to aspiring drummers of any age.
Luis
Zach has been my drum instructor for a little over a year now, and after stopping playing for several years beforehand I foun Zach, I thank him helping he rebuild my passion for rocking out! He never fails to take his time with me and break down certain beats, songs, etc, whenever I’m having trouble getting the grasp of things. He makes his classes very personal and it’s clear how much he cares for how I perform and how much I understand what I’m doing

I believe that every student learns at varying paces. I emphasize my students strengths so they can excel at sight reading or playing by ear. I love to create personal connections so that our learning environment is safe and open. I am a fashion designer and musician who bonds very well with creative types! I encourage keeping practice records, but understand busy weekly schedules.

I began playing piano and viola at age ten and never stopped! I joined the Youth Symphony of Kansas City as a teenager and fell in love with orchestra. My private viola studies allowed me to join groups such as the Kansas City String Quartet Program and Heartland Chamber Music. One of my favorite performances was recently playing with the Heartland Chamber Men's Chorus.

About Hannah

I'm a Midwestern girl with a big heart and creative mind. Art, fashion, travel, film, and family are among the many muses of my life! I started teaching violin and viola four years ago after a friend suggested I become a private music instructor. My goal is to foster students to practice smart, res

I found the instructor to be very patient and experienced. I am a beginner and have no experience with playing the piano and hopefully will learn from her experience.
Matthew
What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.
Thandiwe Thomas
I’ve hired Kalyse as an actor multiple times. She’s also a great pianist and guitarist. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their instructor.

In the Pits: How to Succeed as an Orchestral Pianist

Being a piano player may seem like a very solitary way to go about learning an instrument. As a piano student, you may yearn to make music with others, and if you're naturally drawn toward group music making, it may be that you already study an orchestral instrument, or sing with a choir. You may also have extended your piano training to accompany some of your friends for concerts or exams, or explored the wide variety of chamber music repertoire available involving the piano. However, had you c …
