Lisa A.

West Bend, WI

About Lisa

Lisa studied Classical Piano under Ruth Jones for 13 years and under Audrejean Heydenburg at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She studied Voice under Tamara Whitley for 6 years and under Charles Livesay at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. Lisa has been teaching Piano lessons for 10+ years and Voice lessons for nearly as long. She studied piano pedagogy and vocal music education at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She then taught music at West Highland Christian Academy for K-12 students and Home School Band and Choir for upper elementary students. Along with teaching, Lisa leads wo
rship at Bend City Church and has accompanied for several community plays and student scholarship events.

"I enjoy all kinds of music and really want to share my love of music with people of all ages. My goal is to get people excited to learn and expand their abilities through voice and piano and to prepare future performers and teachers as well."

*** Lesson Details ***
Lisa teaches all styles of voice including Classical, Italian, Jazz and Folk styles as well as Contemporary, Pop and Broadway. She incorporates the fundamentals into her every day teaching style and helps the student to grow in their technical ability through application in each song they study. Lisa teaches the student how to use their voice correctly as well as how to have good stage presence and performance ready ability.

Lisa teaches beginner piano students from age 5 through method books as well as more advanced students in either Classical styles or Contemporary styles. Some students have the desire to be concert pianists or to teach piano themselves, others just wish to play with a band or play songs which they can sing to. Both styles are valuable skills to learn. Lisa will discuss with the student which direction they would like to go and decide together what the student would like to learn.

You will receive a copy of Lisa's studio policy at your first lesson. You will be required to read over and sign this policy before lessons are to continue.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is in my apartment in a comfortable living room setting. Parents are welcome to wait and listen to the lesson or drop the student off.

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained Piano, Specialize currently in improvising with chord charts or lead sheets. Worship Music.

I sat in the room while 5 year old Maia had her lesson with Lisa. Maia seemed relaxed and able to follow Lisa's instructions. I was really impressed with Lisa's approach to the lesson and feel lucky to have connected with her. Maia said she likes her teacher too and was able to show me what she learned in her first lesson! Looking forward to future lessons with Lisa!

Lyle has been a great instructor so far. He has taught me how to think about and practice guitar better. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge that he shares in an easy-going way. I feel better prepared and confidant that I can reach my desired skill level, rather than it seeming like a fantasy. Highly recommended.

Dafydd B.

Madison, WI

About Dafydd

I am an active freelance hornist in the Madison, WI area. Beginning my studies at the age of nine, I have been playing the horn for 15 years. After finishing high school in Houston, Texas, I relocated to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I began my undergraduate work at Louisiana State University under the instruction of Seth Orgel of the Atlantic Brass Quintet.

Upon completion of my Bachelor of Music degree in 2011, l moved to Chicago, IL where I spent the next two years earning a master's degree in music performance. During this time I studied with Dale Clevenger, long time Principal Horn of t
he Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

During my career, I have performed in a wide variety of settings including orchestral performances, musicals, operas, chamber music, and solo performances.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am highly enthusiastic about teaching the art of music and brass playing to all who wish to learn. I developed my teaching philosophy by combining the teaching styles of my own personal teachers. I start by focusing on the fundamentals of brass playing. These include skills such as breathing, tone production, scales, and arpeggios. I believe that once learned, these skills can be used as tools in order to make beautiful music. The next phase of teaching focuses more on the music its self. Things such as phrasing, dynamics, tone color, and style are what separate the good performers from the great ones. I use a proven combination of method books, etude books, and my own personal exercises and pieces that I have created to both fix certain problems, as well as perfect the art of music making.

While this may sound intimidating to a new student or their parents, DO NOT BE AFRAID! I am very good at what I do, and I promise that I can teach you all of these skills and more. In the end, it all comes down to the joy that can come from making music, and my teaching method can get you to the point where you can have more fun than you ever imagined performing music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Chairs
Music Stands
Sheet music and exercises

*** Travel Equipment ***
I could provide sheet music and exercises.
I expect my students to have a instrument that is in working condition.

*** Specialties ***
I focus on using a variety of method books and etude books, combined with the standard orchestral, band, and solo repertoire in order to teach the art of music making, as well as the skills necessary to play the instrument proficiently.

Dafydd is a Top Notch Instructor

Dafydd is an incredibly gifted trumpet instructor. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, innovative and artful. I have noticed great improvements in my breath control, technique and overall sound since I began taking lessons from him. He tailors the lessons to capitalize on my strengths and improve my weaknesses by stressing good trumpet playing basics. He has helped me to achieve the competitive edge I was looking for and to gain the confidence I need to succeed as a trumpet player. The lessons are challenging and enjoyable.

Mrs. Ross has a passion for perfected technic. She takes time on making sure things are done properly and is very encouraging along the way. She is a wonderful teacher with a bright and helpful attitude. You never need fear asking a dumb question to her. She is always very thorough in her answers.

I took piano lessons from Heather Ross in high school before going on to take a piano pedagogy major in college. Her teaching was a definite help in preparation for my college studies, and I learned much from her during my time studying under her. Heather is a knowledgeable and skilled teacher who understands what it takes to bring a student from one level to the next.

Sheryl W.

Watertown, WI

About Sheryl

I am a 2008 graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran College. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in music with emphasis on Instrumental Music Instruction. During lessons, we learn music theory, a little bit of music history, and try to have fun along the way.
My husband and I are both instrumentalists and enjoy playing our instruments any chance we can get (outside of our hourly jobs of course). We have two small boys ages 2 and 6 months and they are a joy to be around.
My goal is to teach the love of music to others so that they can enjoy all aspects of what music has to offer them in their lives!
