Doreene met with our daughter and made her feel at ease and comfortable from the start. She listened to her sing and made several suggestions that made an immediate difference in her singing. Looking forward to many more sessions with her.

I first started taking from Doreene about three years ago. I live in a place where there seem to be absolutely NO good voice teachers, and I was absolutely lost when it came to technique. Luckily, I was recommended to her by a friend and have been taking lessons over webcam ever since. All I can say is Wow! What an improvement! I had no connection into my chest voice when I first began taking and was terrified to sing anything other than classical. Now I feel confident singing pop, theater, Broadway, you name it, because I have faith in my voice and I know that she's always right. You'll never have to worry about being embarrassed about your voice when you sing for her or anything. She's fun, friendly, happy, and she knows what she's talking about. Even if you don't plan on being famous one day, you will love being able to use all three parts of your voice and will develop faith in your own singing, something that we always try for. Thanks so much Doreene!!

Brian L.

Sandy, UT

About Brian

I have been teaching for 15 yrs. and playing for 34 yrs. I absolutely love to watch the learning process take shape. I get a great deal of joy from teaching and witnessing students pass and achieve greatness. When they overcome what seem like insurmountable odds to them and then perform something flawlessly, especially in a live setting, It just does not get any better than this. I cannot imagine doing anything else with my time. I have a strong ability to connect with each individual student and create a personal lesson plan for each and every unique personality. Depending on the person, I wi
ll personally tailor a lesson plan for that individual based on their natural ability, coordination skills, mindset, musicality and overall rhythmic sense. I also try to give each and every student the confidence needed to get up in front of an audience or crowd of people and still perform with elegance and dignity. Just relax and play. That is what it is all about, right, having fun. Let's play.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a professional lesson plan in place. I like to teach from literature and also from feeling and hearing the music. I am very amiable and straight forward with my students. I stress very strongly the importance of a good practice routine. With lots of practice you will become a great drummer. But, fun is what everything is all about. If you do not have fun then I have failed. I have never purposely failed, so Lets Go.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate from Home, Separate Entrance, Music studio soundproof, Parents and Friends Waiting area with couch and full view through glass window of drum room where lessons take place. Sound can be piped into waiting area or completely muted. Lesson room has two drum sets and state of the art Audio Equipment set up for beautiful sound production and clarity. I also use video playback with studio quality sound to increase learnability. This has been proven to be a very successful tool in the learning process!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Sticks, Pad, Snare Drum and Lots of energy! Let's Rock.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Funk, Punk,Country, Metal.
I also teach Jazz, Swing, Latin, Big Band, Afro-Cuban.
I focus on three main areas:
1. Reading music
2. Playing with recorded music
3. Rudiments and Stick Control
Plus of course proper technique and dynamics.
I am also associated with local Middle School and High School Jazz Band and Orchestra Teachers. I can greatly improve your students ability to compete and participate in the Jazz Band, Orchestra or Percussion Classes taught at the Middle to High School level. Let's Swing.

OUTSTANDING INSTRUCTOR

As an instructor Brian is patient, consistent and has many angles for reaching students who may be struggling to gain musical concepts. He finds lots of ways for his students to observe professional drummers and opportunities for his students to perform at whatever level they've achieved. The studio is well equipped and comfortable with an great observation area for parents and friends of the student. If you want to learn drumming Brian is the one to contact!

Couldn't be better

My son has been taking drum lessons from Brian for several years.We were looking for a teacher that would teach the important stuff like reading music, basic beats, as well as the fun stuff, learning songs. Brian is everything we were looking for. My son loves to play and enjoys going to lessons. Brian has also provided opportunities for his students to attend workshops & concerts put on by celebrity drummers. If your kids want to learn to play drums, Brian is the guy to teach them.

Kait K.

Salt Lake City, UT

About Kait

Kait K. has been teaching singers since 1997. She has taught in San Diego & Los Angeles, CA and Salt Lake City, UT. Kait worked as a professional singer for several years in the Los Angeles Music Industry where she performed in several bands and worked as a session singer. She has headlined her own blues band, sung in several cover bands and also sang alongside John Lee Hooker Jr. as a lead vocalist on his western tour of the U.S. Kait was the lead singer and co-songwriter for the band Light Vizion and co-produced the band's debut album "Looking For An Angel" and can be heard as the solo vocal
ist on the album "True North" by Tristan Moore. She is currently a freelance vocalist in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has sung lead and solo in a large variety of venues, including Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall, Rose Wagner (Jeanne Wagner Stage) and several local clubs and restaurants as well as festivals and outdoor concerts including the annual Scarecrow Festival and the Brown Bag Concert Series and Furry Fiesta Fundraiser! While in Los Angeles, Kait performed in numerous clubs and blues music venues, including The Brown Derby, The Blue Cafe and BB Kings in Hollywood. Kait's own education includes a B.F.A. from the Actor Training Program at the University of Utah, an M.F.A. in Musical Theatre Performance from San Diego State University plus 5 years post-grad study in Los Angeles training in voice with world master voice teacher, Edward Sayegh. In 2004 Kait returned to her roots in Salt Lake City, UT to continue both her singing and teaching career. She continues to write, arrange and record as a freelance singer, and has appeared as the featured vocalist with groups like Children's Dance Theatre and Ririe-Woodbury among others.

Kait: "My goal with each student is to help them to become the very best they can be as singing performers. But in addition, I aim to lift their spirit during the time they spend here, so that when they leave for the day, after the work they've done, they feel better, more inspired, more empowered and more confident and driven than they did when they arrived at my door. Teaching and watching my students evolve as both artists and people is thrilling! I have the honor of watching them find themselves through music while they build truly lifelong friendships with the performing peers they meet here...they end up finding some of their 'kindred spirits' in life here, and THAT is golden."

Megan C.

Midvale, UT

About Megan

My name is Megan, and I love teaching guitar lessons! I originally got my bachelor's degree from the University of Utah in Elementary Education. I taught 6th grade for a couple of years, and then went on to teach guitar classes at a private school for another couple of years. At this school, I directed the classical guitar ensemble, and had children from 5-14 playing challenging music together. I started slowly taking on private students in my spare time, and my business has grown, so that now it's all I do!
I was a music major before I switched over to Elementary Ed. I have experience in
playing in groups, solo, composition, as well as the fundamentals of different styles of playing. I specialize in teaching children, but of course love to teach adults as well. I can teach folk, blues, classical, and the music theory behind soloing in any style.
My passion for music, and knowledge of how we all learn make me very capable of guiding you toward your own musical goals.

Megan is is such a great teacher! I personally take lessons from her and am so impressed with her. I have had teachers that are really good at their instrument, but cannot communicate and teach well. Megan has a teaching degree from the University of Utah, so she really knows how to teach. She is so good at the guitar and can teach anything you want to learn. She is fun, kind and understanding. Take lessons from her!
