Marty W. Chandler, AZ

About Marty

Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom. "With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your sound. As well, piano students will learn techniques that will speed up their comprehension of sight reading and/or improvisation. Teaching gives me an opportunity to energize my students and share with them historically proven techniques - as well as new ways of practicing and performing." - Marty Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Marty moved to the Phoenix, AZ area eight years ago. Marty has over 20 years of performing and teaching experience. She studied for three years at the School of ...

We love Marty. My daughter has been with her 2 1/2 years. There is a special relationship with my daughter and Ms. Marty that I never hear from any other teacher. Respect! I'm speaking of the respect that Ms. Marty shows her students. When she speaks to my daughter she treats her with such respect and kindness. Francesca will always have the skills Marty has taught her and continues growing and blossoming under her tutelage.

Marty can guide you go down whatever musical path that interests you. She tells you what you need to do to achieve great quality, but never makes you feel bad if you don't make it.

Instruction is always individualized and positive. She always looks for what you do best and helps you develop your strengths. She works with you to overcome your weaknesses. Taking classes with her is a great pleasure.

My daughter has been to Jennifer three times so far, and we will continue to use her for lessons. She is friendly, great with kids, recognizes strengths and weaknesses easily and addresses them. My daughter has learned so much in the few lessons she attended thus far. I recommend her to any one else in the Gilbert area looking for a step above the rest.

Alysia R. Gilbert, AZ

About Alysia

Music has been my passion for the past 18 years. I started piano when I was 5 yrs old and the violin when I was 7 yrs old. I continued with lessons until I entered the Detroit High School for Performing Arts. During my sophomore year, I took additional classes at Wayne Sate University for music theory and in my senior year I took on my first piano students. I have been teaching piano, violin and music theory ever since. I have also choreographed and taught dance for many years as dancing has been with me since my first lessons at 4 yrs old. My focus is in ballet, tap and jazz. I am a graduate from Eastern Michigan University where I was actively a part of the music and dance program. *** Lesson Details *** I remember my piano teacher and I try to keep her balance of fun and ...

We were disappointed when Alysia showed up late to our 8 year old daughters very first piano lesson (which was an 8th birthday gift.....she was very excited) And then to our surprise she leaves the lesson 5 full minutes early. We thought that maybe she was having a rough day and decided to give it a shot again next week. Well, this time, not to our surprise, after a suspiciously quite...piano lesson...our daughter confirmed what we had hoped was not going on....Ms. Alysia spent much of the lesson texting with "her parents". Just disappointing.

Solid, happy Teacher, quality instruction!

Aysia has been a fantastic teacher for my 13 year old daughter for violin. She has clear expectations and lessons. She is very competent with her skills and good at communicating her knowledge in an encouraging and constructive manner. She has been flexible with the schedule when necessary, due to life happening. I highly recommend her as a choice teacher.

Awesome!!!!

Alysia is a great teacher I was a little nervous to use her because most of the reviews were written by parents whos kids are learning and I am an adult who just really wanted to learn the violin but after meeting Alysia she is not only patient but informative I think learning as an adult we or at least I tender to want to run before I can crawl like let's just learn this so I can get to the "good stuff." The way she explains stuff really lets you see there is method to the madness of trying to learn something so complicated? She is also easy to work with both in song selections (within abilities) and how she teaches. Learning the violin poster among a thousand other things is important and she has a way of correcting that doesn't make me feel stupid I know my husband has the nicest things to say. After a few lessons I am still on simple songs at only a few lessons and I still mess up but I have improved enough he doesn't run away or put in ear plugs anymore. Thank you Alysia!!!! I cant wait till I get a few more lessons in.... I am very excited!

so glad I finally started taking lessons.....

What fun this is...."finally" at age 72 I'm taking piano lessons....I was very nervous but since I realized Rachel wasn't going to smack my hand with a ruler if I made a mistake, I'm ok. All kidding aside, Rachel's fantastic and I'm thoroughly receiving the benefit of her knowledge in a very gratifying way. She's the best.

Piano is Fun

Rachel is very nice and encouraging. She knows a lot about piano. When I told her my favorite song she found a version of the sheet music that I could learn. I like Rachel because she is a kind and smart teacher.
David O. Queen Creek, AZ

About David

Greetings! Like you, I have a passion for music. I was singing, humming and whistling since before I can remember. I started piano at age 5, clarinet at 10, saxophone at 11, and took lessons like you're about to for them all up through college, playing lead tenor sax and clarinet in the Utah State University Jazz Orchestra for 5 years (among many other groups- all-state, small wedding combos, pit orchestras, barbershop quartets, church choirs, etc.) Meanwhile, I pursued a more "sensible" career, earning a BS and MS or mechanical and aerospace engineering. After 6 years of working that career, I could no longer deny that my heart was in music and teaching. I have now taught band (elementary, Jr. & Sr. High Concert band & Jazz band), Math (algebra & AP Physics) and HS physics for ...

My experience as having Mr. David O. as a teacher has been nothing but positive!

Not only is Mr. David O. a patient teacher but he also knows that every student is different by taking an interest in each student, which in my opinion is very important, and will do his best to teach them with different methods. His teaching schedule is pretty flexible and also has more than enough experience to teach both saxophone and clarinet. If I hadn't had him as my clarinet instructor, I probably wouldn't have done as many things without his encouragement.

Last year as a high school senior, I never even thought of auditioning for anything, let alone for regional band. In fact, I was going to dismiss it until I asked Mr. David O. his opinion of what I should do. He had me go for the sake of receiving audition experience then helped me through my scales and etudes. A couple of months later it’s finally audition day and I got into regional band on my first try, which isn't as common or easy as one would think. As a clarinetist who has been playing for 8 years now, I have never improved as drastically in my music experience as I have with Mr. David O. and recommend him to anyone who has a love of music.
