About LK

Www.lkfletcher.com
I am a singer-pianist-actor Or a pianist-singer-actor. :-)
I have a bachelors degree in voice performance and a minor in piano and theater.
I have a masters degree in voice as well as a second masters in piano literature.
i have a certificate in comedy improvisation from Second City and am a professional actor. I am the owner and senior talent agent of a large talent agency in the DFW area.
My post graduate work is in vocal pedagogy.
I have been a professional teacher and performer for over 20 years.
I own and manage a professional talent agency in the DFW area.
My
students come in every model imaginable - and I wouldn't have it any other way. Raw beginner or veteran actor or musician, professional recording artist, College music major or American Idol wannabe.

The arts are such a great language for communicating. I grew up with two parents who were professional musicians (mom is a concert pianist) and I also raised 3 children who are professional musicians. We made music our native language in our home. We all have the ability to speak music when it is spoken to us. I don’t ever remember not playing the piano. I started winning piano competitions in high school. I minored in piano, and then did additional post graduate work in piano. I “speak” piano. It has served me so well as a teacher, composer, opera coach. It is really a gateway to understanding all other instruments. The same scenario with my singing.

I began my professional career as an opera singer which has taken me around the world. I have premiered works by Leonard Bernstein and Samuel Adler in addition to principal roles and concert work with Pittsburgh Opera, The Pittsburgh Symphony, Dayton Opera, the Tuscia Opera Festival and hundreds of professional engagements. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to belt the National Anthem for several major league teams in a television appearance- and has done so on multiple occasions. (Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Reds) I am passionate about vocal jazz and musical theater and am frequently found as a performer in various national and regional venues. Feature concert works include PBS (Gershwin in Concert) as well as featured solo concert works (Pergolesi Stabat Mater) on Italian Public TV.

My approach to music has always been to do what you love. I have never limited myself as a performer to a genre or an instrument. I have explored, applied myself to and enjoyed a very diverse musical career. If you have a passion for an instrument or style of music let's start there first... and then let's discover together all the things you do that uniquely define your musicianship style.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your lessons will always be engaging, challenging and fun!

I am very consistent in my approach to technique, my focus on goals and my demand for excellence. I constantly am working to access with you what your goals are and to provide feedback and support to help you achieve them.

I am very flexible in utilizing a wide variety of repertoire, resources etc. Your lessons are personalized to your skill set and your musical interests. I utilize audio and video recordings almost every week for all my students. I routinely promote and encourage my students to participate in a wide variety of competitions, recitals, workshops and master classes.

I have a very low turnover rate for students and a very high rate of students who have progressed to professional full time careers in music. Students like being a part of my studio and really like the confidence they have in their music abilities in a very short period of time.

I do not use the same curriculum for all students, in face, each curriculum is customized for that student. The components are similar: technique, repertoire, theory, listening, composing, recording and performing.

You can expect the following:You will feel very encouraged and supported in your talent. You will have measurable improvement in your skills. You will have a personal advocate to encourage and direct you in finding and creating opportunities to succeed in your music personally, academically and professionally.

I can't wait to get started!

I cannot oversell my experience with Lisa Kay. She was always so encouraging and made it both a comfortable and vocally challenging environment. With her help, I was able to push my self to new heights (literally notes I couldn't imagine hitting before) and I have a stronger confidence now in my abilities. I would highly recommend her!

Melodie B.

Fort Worth, TX

About Melodie

Music has been a very important part of my life for a long time. I began taking piano lessons at age 9 and also started as a church musician that same year. Some people would say I was a very fast learner! I was, and still am, very interested in every aspect of music. I began singing in church and school a few years after that. I have played and performed a variety of styles of music but I have the most experience with Christian music, classical, pop and R & B. I am confident that I can teach you whatever style you are interested in! I am currently a high school choral director and a min
ister of music for church. I also play in a band with a group of my co-workers where we perform mostly pop, rock and oldies. I have been doing private lessons since I was in high school and have taught school music for 25 years. I've taught general education, choir, band and general music. I also do some composing.

I attended Jarvis Christian College (1984-1989) where I majored in All-Level Music Education. I received a Bachelor of Science in Education degree in May of 1989.

After I was hired at my first school, I started working on additional certification at Texas Christian University and Texas Wesleyan University. I completed the required subjects and received certification in general education in 1991. I am currently certified in 3 areas: General Music 1-8, All-Level Music K-12 and General Education 1-8.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that all students can and will learn something if they put forth some effort! I also believe that learning music should be fun! I'm a pretty laid back person but I am very serious about my time and yours being well spent! I use a method book for piano lessons, as well as, a variety of other materials based on your interest and level. I also use a variety of materials for voice lessons. At the first lesson I will find out what your goals for learning music are. I will also find out what types of music you are interested in and we'll go from there! I do believe in challenging students. I do expect you to sincerely want to learn and to demonstrate your interest through weekly practice and attendance at your lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Ms. Brookins is an excellent teacher. Although I had a few ideas of how to sing, I had no idea how technical it was. After a couple of weeks of struggling, she helped me further understand the complexity of the voice. She is great at going at the students pace while trying to help them grow musically.

Maryellen W.

Fort Worth, TX

About Maryellen

Hello Parents/Students,
Thank you for checking out my profile. I absolutely love playing, performing and teaching violin. My hope is to share this wonderful gift with you! I try to meet students where they are, whether you are a beginner or an advanced student. My goal is to progress you to your full potential in a positive, encouraging atmosphere. I enjoy teaching and I bring a lot of energy to the lesson -- I hope you will too, because together, we will make learning violin a great experience; one I hope you will cherish for a long time.
My approach to teaching is student specific.
I know everyone learns differently and at their own pace. My hope is to inspire and challenge you to reach your full potential, while applauding your achievements along the way. I have a great sense of humor and a genuine interest in each student I teach.
To let you know a little about me, I began studying violin at the age of seven, progressing quickly through the Suzuki Method repertoire. I played with Shinichi Suzuki on a concert when he came to Knoxville, Tennessee to celebrate his birthday. I competed at state level, receiving no less than superior ratings and winning best violinist in the state of Tennessee. I went on to take from international professionals, Patricio and Jacinto Cobos of Chile; Alan Lieb, a protégé of Shinichi Suzuki, as he studied with him for years in Japan; the first chair violinist of the Memphis State Symphony, and Melvin Harrison of Texas Christian University.
Harrison encouraged me to become a teacher and I took a few courses at TCU in order to be certified as a Suzuki teacher in 1999.
I opened my home studio and by word of mouth, many schools in the Fort Worth area became interested in having me teach/coordinate violin programs for their fine arts programs. I taught for programs at All Saints Episcopal School, Fort Worth Country Day School, Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, Texas Elementary School of the Arts, Saintsville Preparatory Academy as well as taught and coordinated the Suzuki Program for Youth Orchestra of Greater Fort Worth. Many of my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, several placing first chair.
My background involves about thirty years of playing/studying violin, as well as playing in the orchestra at Baylor University and performing at Bass Hall, here in Fort Worth. I am currently recording with a local artist and the album will be available the first of January 2014.
I look forward to working with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
My method is a combination of the Suzuki Method and a more traditional approach. I find the repertoire in Suzuki is excellent for foundation in position and technique, but I like to supplement sight reading by using level appropriate etudes from Wolfhart, scales from Craig Duncan's three octave studies of major, minor, melodic and harmonic, as well as several selections of duets that I find solidifies a student's confidence in playing in harmony with another. I tailor my style of teaching to each student, depending on temperament, level of skill and discipline. I like to meet students where they are and progress them at a challenging pace, consistent with their skill level and potential.
A lesson with me begins with review, warming up on pieces learned or, if the student is a beginner, learning position to facilitate correct finger placement for pitch and doing bow exercises structured to assure bow control. If the student has played before, we concentrate on warming up, but also try to add dynamics, style and musicality to their review piece, as I like them to be challenged even as we are beginning. Next, we would focus on their current piece. We talk about key signature, play the corresponding scale to get our "formula" for playing the piece in correct rhythm and pitch. Then we work on the current piece. The last few minutes I bring etudes into the mix and spend time progressing them in theory and sight reading. Each student must have a notebook to record our lesson notes and keep up with practice throughout the week, as I fix a chart for them to clarify. My lessons are taught in a positive manner, encouraging the student to progress at their own pace, but also challenging them to reach their full potential.
I encourage students to play music from every genre, as many of them want to see the practical application in their lives. We can rock out to the Beatles, Bonjovi or Taylor Swift, while also learning the technique in Bach, Mozart and Mendelsohn.
I prefer to teach lessons weekly (meaning having a lesson once a week) and not take students who want to come for one or two lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a beautiful studio with a wonderful bay window. There is room for parents to relax on a comfortable couch and listen to the lesson. I have a piano in the studio, should we need accompaniment at any time. I provide a music stand as well. For some of the pop music, I provide an amplifier and a microphone that attaches to the violin.

*** Specialties ***
I teach a combination of traditional/Suzuki, incorporating three octave scales and exercises, etudes, repertoire from the Suzuki Method, while teaching the importance of position, technique, musicality, center pitch and performance.

Marilyn J.

Fort Worth, TX

About Marilyn

Music is soothing to the soul. It can calm us when anxious. It can teach young children focus, concentration and improve fine motor skills. I feel classical piano is a basic foundation to learn many instruments and types of music. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. My goal is to try and turn on the student's love for music so that he or she wants to spend time at the piano at home improving skills.
