About Heather
Having begun teaching lessons while still in high school, I went on to major in music and graduated with a degree in sacred music in 1999. Since earning that degree, I have accompanied for three separate vocal music CDs using original improvised piano accompaniments. I have played sacred music in church for 25 years and have a great deal of experience improvising with hymns. I have taught piano, flute, choir, and general music at a private academy for over ten years. Having recently earned my Masters in Education, I enjoy discovering students' strengths and seeking to shape them into the best musicians and individuals they can be.

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. She makes learning fun and the students want to learn.

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.

It's always overwhelming when your trying out a new instrument for the first time but David is the one to show you in the right direction. In just a short hour, he had showed me the basic principle on how to play and how to read the notes off the page which were greatly helpful. I can't wait to go to my next session!

Hi, I'm Jeff Taylor and here are 2 reviews that help describe my teaching work ...

Hudson B. on July 01, 2016:
"Amazing mentor. He has taught me how to keep beat, how to handle my sticks without killing the drum or my hands. Just about any song he listens too he can write it out in to drum music and it's pretty close to what you're hearing. Amazing guy who really knows his stuff about the drums!"

Ryan R. on January 10, 2017:
"In my 10 years of playing the drums, I have improved more in the past year of studying with Jeff than the other 9 years combined. I would definitely recommend to any drummer looking to break outside their comfort zone and take their craft to the next level. It'll be worth every penny."

About Trapper
Trapper is a Wisconsin-based tunesmith and teller of tales (both tall and true). His songwriting and storytelling have landed him on international tours with artists like the Wallflowers, Jayhawks and Old 97's and he's most recently released his second album Rangers & Valentines through the London based record label, Xtra Mile Recordings. The record follows his critically acclaimed 2012 debut Run Engine, Run, with his band the Shades. That LP earned notices in Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and Paste, with the folks at Huffington Post calling him a “master storyteller” and PBS hailing his “story songs that explore and explode the conventions of rock and roll.”

Aptly, Trapper has a Certificate in Rock and Roll Studies from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and spent time as a DJ at NPR's Milwaukee Public Radio. His musicianship a
nd industry experience have led him to instructing, where he'll help hone guitar skills from beginner to intermediate players.

FWe started with a booklet and some 3 chord songs. Moved to scales, which helped me play along with the first songs we learned in a new style. The little bit of theory has gone a long way. Reccomemded.

Trapper has been a great asset to my two kids. He started with one son and the other followed. It's been great for my boys to get their feet wet with their musical education and have fun with Trapper, too.

About Sarah
I am a music teacher in Southeastern Wisconsin, specializing in clarinet and harp. I graduated from VanderCook College of Music, and previously studied clarinet at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. I have been playing harp for more than 15 years, performing for various events, both as a soloist and in ensembles. Clarinet and Saxophone were next, widening my performance experience, and inspiring me to continue learning to play and teach various instruments. I added other woodwind and brass instruments into my repertoire until I became a certified K-12 music teacher. I still perform, but my main focus will always be teaching!

Instrumental lessons are ideal for school music students, but are available for anyone who wants to learn. Your goals determine our progression, and it's never too late to start!

Harp can be a daunting instrument
for beginners, and I strive to make it as accessible as possible. Students may choose to play on my harp for as long as they would like before purchasing their own instrument.

About Michael
Hey, guys! My name is Michael. I absolutely love the bass guitar. I play electric guitar and piano as well but there has always been something about the bass that I just love. I have been playing for 5 years now, I used to work at a church where I would almost every weekend so I have tons of real live band experience. I have appeared in a number of songs my friends and I have produced.

I love teaching and playing the bass. I really enjoy getting to share what I what I love to do. One of the bonus' I bring to the table is that I am very willing to move at the pace you are as the student. I will never try to overwhelm you and push you along faster then you are able or want to move.

Thanks so much for your consideration and I hope to hear from you soon!

About Coltyn
I am a professional singer in the Milwaukee area currently performing with a band that plays original pop/rock music and as a member of several professional choruses, such as Bel Canto, in which I am a section leader and soloist. I learned to sing by taking lessons at a young age which progressed into a degree in vocal music education from Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee. After teaching at two different schools in the Greater Milwaukee Area I moved onto teaching individual voice lessons, as it fit my teaching style better.

Students taking lessons in my studio can expect to learn something new every week while reviewing old material to maintain peak performance level. I pick lessons based on fixing flaws in individual voices that I hear as well as building strengths. I've narrowed all vocal techniques into a list of seven categor
ies, from which I pick one per week to focus on. The list is: 1. Thinking 2. Posture 3. Breathing 4. Phonation 5. Resonance 6. Articulation and 7. Communication.

Once students understand what they are doing and how to control it, they will be able to sing whatever style song they would like. It is my philosophy that good singing should never be an accident.
