Amy R. Peoria, AZ

About Amy

My name is Amy and I teach Voice, Piano, and Music Theory! I am originally from Racine/Milwaukee, WI and have been a musician since I was young. I believe music is a universal language that connects us all on a deeper level. There is something so pure, beautiful, and genuine in music. It has the capability to move us to tears, feel empowered, or even break out in laughter. Sharing and connecting with others is what music is all about. I have loved music my entire life and enjoy bringing my passion and expertise to my students! *** Lesson Details *** Taking lessons is a fun and exciting experience! However, learning to play an instrument (or sing) is not easy. It takes practice, focus, dedication, and hard work. We set up a plan at the beginning of lessons to ensure success! Lessons

Amy is wonderful!

I've been with Amy for just over a year now, having "0" experience in the beginning. I'm so glad that I found her. Amy is a great teacher. She's professional, talented and experienced, patient, flexible and super easy-going.
As a beginner, playing the piano can be challenging and frustrating. Amy is encouraging, even when I think I'm doing poorly. She identifies difficulties and explains/demonstrates helpful corrections. I have learned a lot in my first year and I highly recommend her as a teacher. Thank you, Amy!!

My kids love Amy!

My daughters are currently taking lessons with Amy to learn to play piano. They are really enjoying themselves and have learned so much already. Amy is very professional to work with and has a great method of teaching. She leaves specific instructions for what to work on every week. We are very happy to have found such a great source for music instruction!

Best Music Teacher Ever!

I have grown so much musically because of what I've learned from Miss Amy. She has taught me so much about my voice and being confident on stage, I even got a solo this year at school! I have learned a lot about diction, expanding my range, making a clear sound, and each class is so much fun!
Lou S. Surprise, AZ

About Louis

My name is Lou S., and I come from a family of Drummers. My Father was a Master Drum Instructor and taught my Uncle, Brother, me and over 2800 other students in a teaching career that spanned more than 40 years. As the youngest in the family I had the opportunity to learn from my Dad as well as my other family members. My structured lessons started at the age of 5 and by the time I reached high school I was booking my own band and performing weekly at local clubs and events. There was a certain amount of pressure growing up in this environment. After all, if you’re the teacher’s kid, you’re expected to be good, right? This is true, but the way my Father taught and how he inspired me was to be sure I had my own identity. He was not making clones, he was teaching the ART of ...

Passionate about drums; reflected in his teaching

Lou took me by surprise after the first few lessons. His preference is to teach the foundation and basically build up from there. This sort of put me off at first because I wanted to learn a specific genre without all the extras that I thought I didn't need. Fortunately, he was able to help me understand that by learning all of the simple rudiments, I can play anything I want. Now, I haven't reached that stage yet, but I have no doubt that I can get there with Lou's help.
Patti G. Glendale, AZ

About Patti

I have 30 years of teaching experience and have enjoyed a successful singing, teaching and conducting career in the US and Australia. I have excellent piano skills and can sight-read and play most piano accompaniments for my voice students. No two students are alike so I teach everyone according to their needs and their learning style. I have an exceptional understanding of the voice and communicate using tangible imagery to produce excellent results. I work with all levels of singers from beginners to career level in Broadway, Pop and Classical styles. Beyond university training, I have had training from teachers and coaches from the Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Arizona Opera and many others. With piano, again, technique is important but lessons must be FUN! I like using ...

Patti is a phenomenal musician and teacher

Patti is the most effective music teacher I have worked with. She has an intimate and readily communicated knowledge of vocal technique, and crucially, where problems can arise. She has an intuitive awareness of the voice in a way that can only come from extensive professional experience in performance and education. In a relatively short space of time I have learnt a great deal and grown vocally beyond what I thought I would be capable of.

I cannot recommend Patti highly enough.

David has been extremely helpful to me as a beginner. He not only knows the technical stuff but he is encouraging as well. It's what a beginner needs. He patiently works with me providing tips and a bit of music theory, which I enjoy. The sessions have been enjoyable and I believe I am making good progress. I am enthusiastic about continuing playing and taking lessons.

David is a great teacher! My 13-yr old niece and I decided to take up the guitar not to be rock stars but just to learn an instrument. David was very patient dealing with a kid who decided she had no interest in playing the guitar let alone practice and an older person with klutzy fingers who can't seem to find the time to practice. Amazingly enough through David's good teaching we both learned how to play in just a few short sessions. The kid quit lessons but I am still going and am looking forward to David teaching me my first rock riff…maybe being a rock star is still possible :-)

Amy is awesome! My son just turned 5 and his attention span is very short, but Amy is able to keep him on track. She is very patient and always go over the material with me, so that I understand it and I am able to help my son practice at home. I really appreciate her teaching style.

Amy is Awesome :o)

It would be very difficult to sum up all reasons why Amy is a wonderful music teacher. Amy provides a positive and judgment-free zone for her music lessons. She is both encouraging and inspirational. When my daughter becomes frustrated with a new note or technique, Amy simply reminds her that she is more than capable and all she needs is practice. I appreciate the time and thought Amy puts into making music selections that will both challenge my daughter’s playing abilities while retaining her attention.

Susan was my Piano teacher for a couple of years before she moved to Arizona. She was just wonderful. A great teacher and yet flexible and understanding. Although she made sure I was challenged, she was willing to work with me on the pieces that I was interested in and kept me encouraged to continue playing and learning the piano with my terribly busy schedule. I highly recommend Susan as a music and piano teacher.

I took lessons from Susan for many years when she lived in Michigan. She started teaching me how to sing when I was in middle school, and I kept taking lessons from her throughout high school. She has amazing patience and talent, and she's very knowledgeable. She not only taught me the basics and mechanics of music, but she also taught me how to really express myself through music. I thought I was a good singer to begin with, but she taught me more than I ever thought was possible. I've seen her teach children from my church and the older folks from the adult choir, so she's very flexible and versatile. Needless to say, I highly recommend Susan to anyone looking to take lessons!

Learn Guitar Now: How to Read Tabs

Although learning to read sheet music is a valuable skill for any musician, most guitarists prefer to use a different type of notation known as guitar tablature or guitar tabs. Guitar tabs give a basic visual representation of the neck of your guitar and use numbers to indicate which notes are to be played.

What Are the Best Violin Brands for Beginners?
When you’re first starting to play an instrument, it's important to find a compromise between affordability and good quality. It’s not always smart to buy the cheapest model available, as not only is this likely to produce a poor sound and hamper any incentive to practice or progress, but it's likely to lose a lot of value on the resale market - it's worth bearing in mind that student models will be resold at some later date, whether you're moving onto something better, or to another instrument
